Application Accepted




Mr. Lin, 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

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION



How much total experience do you have in DCS (total hours or periods of continuous play without breaks)?:
30hrs in the logbook and counting.

How many days do you play DCS per week on average?:
All of them, currently - but that'll likely come down to a more reasonable number like 3-4 in the relatively near future.

On a scale of 0-10 with 0 being never and 10 being always, how likely are you to read the training materials given to you when required?:
10

How did you find out about us?:
Search engines are pretty amazing tools. :)

Why do you want to join CSG-2?:
I'm looking for a somewhat milsim group to fly with that at the same time doesn't have their heads so far up their own asses they're back where they belong. If you're not having fun, what's the point of doing something like this in your spare time, right? That said, I strive for realism and for a group that holds themselves to a standard.

What is your availability for training and how much time can you spend on CSG-2 activities per week?:
I am currently a fully remote software engineer team lead, and am mostly in control of my own schedule. I will not reschedule recurring team meetings, but I can otherwise be on during the work week within reason.

What do you enjoy about DCS? What keeps you interested in DCS in the long term?:
The answer to this is, in my opinion, very similar to the answer to whether or not military aviation is right for you, dear reader. "If you have to ask the question..." DCS is as close to the real thing as I can reasonably get at this point in my life without winning the lottery. Enough said, I think.

What personal experience, knowledge, skills, or training do you have that has some relation to DCS? What experience, knowledge, skills, or training (Not necessarily DCS-related) can you provide that benefits everyone?:
I am a flight instructor, have worked as a software engineer on avionics, and a few years ago, was actually a SNA for real. Unfortunately, I had a pretty gnarly motorcycle accident shortly before the end of UPT - I was almost there, but didn't quite earn my wings. I'd be more than happy to take on an instructor role, once my skills in-sim are up to par.

On a similar note, when I'm not working, I happily and freely help people who are trying to break into the tech industry with 1: learning and 2: the job market. If any of you fall under that umbrella, please don't hesitate to reach out to me!

What do you think is important for us to know about you?:
Beyond the above, I travel a lot and may be unavailable on occasion for up to a couple of weeks at a time. It normally won't be an issue, and I'll generally have a lot of notice, but on rare occasion, there's something that needs my attention in another region RIGHT NOW, and I just have to go. (Which is weird, I'm aware, considering I said I "work remotely"...)

Also, my fiancée is a world-class World of Warcraft player who has recently launched a casual (for her peers) 2-night-per-week guild. I will be raiding with them on Tuesdays and Thursdays for at least the next raid tier, partially because nepotism is a powerful force that dramatically trumps skill, and partially because if I don't force myself into other online activities, I'll spend literally all my online time on DCS and likely burn out.
