No problem at all sir, take your time. Something thatís not overtly mentioned in our requirements is that the maps and such arenít required until you graduate from VT-3, which could take several months. If you just want to purchase the Tomcat and get started flying, that is generally all that is required initially. However it is seen as a condition of graduation to acquire the other maps as prescribed as we rotate pretty frequently (at least once a year) to the new locations.

Thank you, upon reading the recruiting requirements and the required modules I'll be able to purchase one a month so it may take awhile to be completely ready.  Being an honorary member of the squadron irl coupled with missing out on my ride I would atleast hope someone could take me up on a fam flight, I'll hop in the RIO seat and get a good idea of the digital cats capabilities.  My fast jet experience is very rusty so while I acquire the required modules it might be best if do some self paced training someone with zero experience would be given to start.  If I could get the needed modules in order of most to least importance would help.   I've had DCS on my computer since DCS world was just an open beta.  BUT I only gave the game about 45 minutes of play time so now I'm starting.

Howdy Snipe, good to have you around. That was a great story and if my memory serves me correctly we actually have a retired pilot here who also served on the Hawk too. I'm sure y'all will have plenty of stories to swap around. Feel free to throw in an application whenever you're ready -- we'll be ready, willing, and able to give you the tools to succeed and have fun here!

Hi everyone.  I'm a disabled vet and single father to a mildly autistic child and I decided I deserved a little something for myself to keep my sanity.  I've been flying flight sims ever since a triangle was supposed to be a representation of an F-15.  I've always wanted to try the more serious stuff but never allowed myself the time as I was always too "busy".  I downloaded DCS years ago but never got around to playing it, 2 of those years was because my gaming rig was down so getting that back up was step one.  For various reasons I was relegated to the Tflight HOTAS system, I snapped the sticks off of 3 of the PS4 versions I kept my older PS3/PC version which is apparently a stronger unit.  I had all but stopped flying as it just wasn't as fun with sloppy inaccurate gear, years and years of studying allowed me to piece together several options on how to arrive at a quality set of gear.  Some recent surprises in my bank account took something that was going to take a year or two into as long as it took to stock the item.  Now I have the tools, Rift CV1, MFG Crosswinds, Winwing panels, X56 throttle because I got tired of my chain getting yanked around by stock dates for Taurus throttle, VKB gladiator mk2 for WarThunder/IL-2 and Gunfighter 3 F-14 edition, and of course the heatblur Tomcat.  Now I'll just need to purchase 1 desk mount per month to really get it there but I'm hoping my "rigged" setup will work better than setting HOTAS on my desk at an awkward angle.

As to why I wanted Strike Group two over all the others is for one reason, VF-154.  I have what I'm sure people will think is an interesting story and one I can promise is a ONE time event in the Navy,  For now I'm going to keep it as short as possible and if folks are interested I'll share the rest of it.  I was an HT aka Hull maintenance Technician, an engineer which are generally known as snipes.  Now you have hole snipes and fresh air snipes I bet you know where I fit in there.  My first ship was the USS Kitty Hawk and VF-154 was our Tomcat squadron.  I was also the number one attack team leader for the ships Flying Squad aka fire department.  I've loved the Tomcat since I was a little kid thanks to the Final Countdown, my favorite movie btw and the movie the Philadelphia Experiment the cats role in that was smaller but they sure do make their presence known.  I did multiple "Hook up" jobs for the squadron, and being the attack team leader it made me the most junior person that could sign off fire fighting and other damage control quals that everyone had to have signed off and if it took too long you could be denied liberty ports and be stuck on the ship.  So about 5,000 odd crew aboard and maybe 6-7 people that can actually sign the quals meant they were pretty grateful when I would swing by the ready to see if any new folks needed training.  They got timely and quality training and I got to hang out in the squadron ready room.  On our 2002 deployment and my last on the Hawk the squadron had a gunex coming up, 2 days before they were set to do it one of the birds was down, cannon didn't work.  The cabling that connected to the cannon, sent the firing signal and supplied the power had broken.  It was an original part and no replacements existed, if they couldn't magically do the impossible and make that gun fire they'd be disqualified.  The squadron skipper decided to think WAAY out of the box and came up with a crazy idea, he figured I could braze it together how not his problem it was my problem.  I figured it out my assistant and I made it happen and the squadron won the exercise.  I couldn't get a ride underway because of my position in the Flying Squad, hell I was one of the few O- on the ship and I was forbidden to donate blood because it could leave me weakened at a critical moment.  So my ride would have to wait until after cruise and squadron tempo slowed down.  Well my new orders came in and I had to transfer so I never got my ride.

This initially started out as a quest to find a Black Knight pilot that was on the same deployment who could make good on that ride, hey top quality sim in VR with an actual Tomcat pilot is miles better than nothing lol.  Or atleast a Black Knight F-14 pilot from anytime they flew the cat.  Or the ultra slim but would be really cool if the actual pilot of the bird I fixed was here.  From there I figured hell why not try and join the squadron, after all I was an Honorary Black Knight.  I'll be submitting my application next.

Application Accepted




Mr. Parks, thank you for your application to Carrier Strike Group 2. Your application has been accepted. Within a few minutes, you should receive access to the rest of the forums and access to the modifications that we use. I am processing you into TRARON THREE (VT-3) "Red Knights", where you will undergo training with your desired airframe and squadron. After a few training sessions to get you up to speed on the basics of the airframe, you will join your desired squadron and finish your training with them.

Several things to do before officially flying with CSG-2: Join our Discord Server HERE and check in with either CAPT J. Wolfe or CAPT S. Clark. We will assign you your proper member groups and you can ask us any questions you may have, and/or schedule your first training session. Secondly, be sure to download any DCS mods that are required. You can ask your Squadron CO for that information, or check on the forums if you have access to it. Third, make sure you are running the DCS Open Beta client. All of our pilots utilize this client, and it is considered the main version of the game by most of the DCS multiplayer community.

Finally, when you are properly processed into the forums (given a proper name, rank, permissions, etc), you will need to check into your respective training squadron both on the forums and in Discord. Failure to do so within 7 days will result in an administrative discharge. Please do so HERE.

Thank you, and we look forward to flying with you!

Respectfully,
LT. V "Jerry" Sprenger
