United We Stand....
We are re-establishing our own Zerstorer Staffel again, 5./ZG1 to be attached to II Jagdgeschwader 52 as our official ground attack/bomber unit. Pilots in this unit will train and maintain a high level of proficiency with ground attack and bomber aircraft.
Pilots will submit their own form of AAR's with an adjustment for scoring which will allow for their propensity to be shot down by concentrated flak fire especially in some of the "DID" arenas, such as InWar and SNBF.
ZG pilots will also fly regularly within our fighter branch as well and will have the option, should slots become available, to transfer into the fighter branch of our unit. The Eastern Front cannot be won with fighter aircraft only and our ground attack capabilities will be of paramount importance in moving our lines forward and on to Moscow.
The mission goal for this unit is to expand into a cohesive unit comprised of at least two schwarms with an independent command and control structure which will come under the umbrella leadership of Simulated Air Combat.
Members are encouraged to share historical and tactical information pertaining to "Heavy Fighter" activity in addition to photos and reference sources which will enable the entire unit to become more informed and increase the immersion level of our Simulated Air Combat excursion back into time....
