901st Tactical Air Squadron recruiting!

901st Tactical Air Squadron (or shortly 901st TAC) is a brand new combat squadron, established in late August 2013. Inspired by the british Fleet Air Arm, we are building a small, both carrier and ground-based unit. Our goal is to become an effective naval-strike force. We're no all stars team, yet we strive to improve our flying skills through sharing our experiences and ideas. The squadron is still in very early stage of existence: we don't have our own server yet, we are working on our own air fleet, we talk about our tactics and most improtantly: [highlight=#ffff00]we are searching for any good - not necessarily perfect - pilots![/highlight] There's so much to learn and so much fun to have!

Our pilots choose one or multiple of the following roles:

Ground attack / anti-shipping role "Archers" (Buccaneer, Harrier - carrier based)
The core of the squadron, performing low-level strikes at high speeds, that are hard to detect. Are you able to stay below 50 feet at almost Mach 1 while changing course and firing AGM?

Escort fighter role "Foxtrots" (F-35C- carrier based)
The title says it all. Short range air-to-air killers. We use F-35C 5th generation fighters to ensure everyone returns to base safely.

Interceptor fighter role "Indigo's" (Tornado F.3 - ground based)
Sometimes you need help quickly. For these cases there are interceptors, ready to roar into sky with their powerful Tornados carrying various types of advanced missiles.

Tactical reconnaissance role "Romeo" (Nimrod, Tornado GR.4 - ground based)
Our eyes, our information provider. We need to know where to strike and how to strike. This work is crucial for success of almost every mission!

We are currently working on our own fleet of aircraft with squadron repaints.

Membership
We don't expect a new pilot to be an expert immediately. That's why we do what we do. We fly together to become better! We fly for the fun of it!
What we do expect, is active, responsible and "fair-play" approach. There are no mandatory or conditional flying duties or anything like that. All our joint activity is a subject of discussion on our squadron-forum. Our members differ in age, occupation and live in different parts of the world, so we take every pilot's needs into account. The 901st squadron is based on common interests, friendship and mutual respect. All our members carry a [901TAS] tag in front of their nickname.

How to apply?
Are you interested in joining the 901st? Do you have any questions?
There's no easier way, than to reply to this thread with your nickname, age and contact info, so we can arrange an online meeting!
You can also write an e-mail to [email protected]
The third way is to use the visitor's book on our new website: http://901tas.webnode.cz/ ( the website is fully functional, but still WIP)

[highlight=#ffff00]RECRUITMENT STOPPED
DUE TO ONGOING TALKS ABOUT MERGING WITH THE 323rd Expeditionary Air Wing[/highlight]

Yeah, but it was Ayr3s, who came with the idea of creating a squadron :arrow: :idea:
I'm just watching aviation movies, bursting ideas, training like hell and reading squadron-related tutorials on YSHQ :)

True. I was a recruit in the 171st back in 2007.However, my membership was not very exemplary. I was too young and stupid to be a good recruit. After some time I just stopped playing without telling anybody and switched to Orbiter space sim. But now I'm back and I expect to stay for a while :twisted:

Good squad guys, join up!
I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for my signature, I can tell you I don't have one. But what I do have are a very particular lack of skills, skills I have imagined having over a very long career. Skills that make me are completely useless in any situation. If you stop reading now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't stop reading, I will look for you, I will probably not find you, and I will kill your refrigerator.

Yes, you're right. Corrected. I re-checked the variant too quickly. GR.4 is the one. We're working on the F-35 so far...
