6./ZG26 - Moving forward


Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

 

Like many squads, we have been around for a while now and also like many squads, we've had squad members come and go. We started out as a UK-based squad but over the years we have had members from Brazil, America and from the European Union. 

 

Many of our initial squad members came from JG 5 and others came from other online squadrons.

We have predominantly flown ground attack in Great Battles for 5 plus years and most of those missions would be in the Bf-110, however,  we have never been adverse to flying allied or different aircraft types, particularly if the numbers online are not balanced. Inevitably, over the years, people move onto different things, and also a number of our younger members grow up and move forward into the workplace so we have now found ourselves flying online with diminishing numbers in our squad. 

 

Moving forward, we would like to try and rebuild our squad numbers again, particularly with the Me 410 and the Mosquito just around the corner (well, next year ;)

Regardless of that, we would also like to propose an open invitation to anyone who would be interested in online squad flying. Experience isn't necessary and if you need to know the basics, we would be happy to help. 

 

If, however you not been interested in joining a squad until now or are unsure but would just like to give flying online a go, why not give it a try?

 

For public servers we tend to try and get together on a Friday evening regularly on the Finnish VirtualPilots server at around 20:00 UK time or sometimes a little earlier and again, you would be welcome to come and have a fly with us. 

 

We have our own TS server that we use for our squad predominantly, but we would also be happy to use SRS.

 

This is also an open invitation to other bomber squads or ground attack squads that will sometimes lack the numbers online to do some organised  ground pounding or bomber flights flying on public servers. 

 

So, if you have a passion for flying group attack or bomber missions and would like to fly as a larger group, let us know in the comments below or PM me for details of joining our TS server etc. 

 

I'll see you in the skies but to be honest you will probably see me in your gun sight.

 

Best Regards 

 

Custard

Hi Custard!

I recognise your tag and name from many long hours spent on Finnish. I flew regularly with three or four other pilots, almost exclusively in the 110 (it's a dream, eh!) on Finnish and occasionally on KOTA before it turned silly. We're also quite partial to the A-20 and the 190 in ground-attack configuration, basically any thing that moves mud. Now it's been a good year or so since we flew as a group but I think we're edging towards doing so again as the winter months draw in.

 

We really enjoy using SRS and find it a little more flexible than Discord to use during sorties.

Would you be accomodating with a handful of additional pilots?

 

I look forward to hearing from you!

Hi Leifr,  you would be most welcome. We tend to get together on a Friday to fly on the Finnish server, we can sort out some other days too. I'll send you our TS details over PM and we can have a chat and sort out some flights. 

 

Best regards 

Custard

Hello, i don't like ground pounders in this game but i shore don't mind escorting them for 2 hours without seeing action because i like the immersion. Would you be interested in someone like me?

You would be most welcome to fly with us. I'll PM you our TS details later today and I'll ask @6./ZG26_Saker to send you a link to Discord.

Hey everyone, 

 

We are a small squadron looking to grow our ranks. We mainly fly ground attack focusing on the Bf 110/Ju-88 and Jabos, however we will fly red as well as the server balance dictates. We usually fly on Finnish, but are open to other servers. 

 

We have members from Europe, the UK, US, and South America. I would describe us as age diverse, casual with relaxed but effective comms and combat effective. We are open to all experience levels. We have many experienced and knowledgeable members to help out. VR flyers are also welcome. We are also flexible if you want to fly fighters and give escort (you will get action lol).

 

I want to reach out and invite people to come have a fly with us on Fridays, 20:00 GMT. Just get ahold of one of us and see if we are a good fit for you. 

 

Cheers,

6./ZG26_Saker

Just popping in to say hi, used to get together with you guys when 6./ZG1 was still a thing. I'd love to pop in for a flight or two on Fridays, but can't promise anything since they're at noon my time!

 

I'm still a big fan of using my wasp skin from that group when I can. :P

Edit:  When we are not flying we have other interests too!

 

We still love our 110's!

The Soviets were sorely outnumbered when we arrived on Finnish VirtualPilots last night.

 

@6./ZG26_Gielowwas flying somewhere over Brazil, @6./ZG26_Klaus_Mann was preparing his sea-legs and @6./ZG26_5tukawas soon to travel to work, so @6./ZG26_Loke, @6./ZG26_Saker andCustard decided to strike fear into the Luftwaffe and take the fight directly to them, in the guise of fearsome soviet women!  The Mid-afternoon Witches took to the skies!

We are always on the lookout for new pilots to join the squad or folks who just want to fly in a group. We have signed up for TAW, So, if you are interested in some organised flying in Multiplayer or would like to learn the ropes (if you are new to online flying) just send one of the squad members a PM on the forum and we can sort out Discord and TS links and sort out flights.

 

See you in the skies :salute:

 

Edit: You will probable see me in your gun sights ;)
