  • Air Assault School

    Again sorry for FLOODING the threads but I have another request. After last nights Ia Drang mission it became aparent to me (after losing a helo) that we should work on Helo insertion/extraction. Is it possible to set up an Air Assault School and maybe get a badge like you get from the BIT?

    I'd like to see some stuff on the more basic battle drills that individual players can use.

    Things like reaction to contact, how to board/dismount various vehicles (trucks, APCs, helos), basic methods for target indication, etc. etc.

    That kind of stuff is what makes the difference between a "green" squad and a "veteran" squad, if you have to tell someone exactly what to do 99% of the time, you tend to get less organized and cohesive missions as a result.

      They had a class last weekend that dealt with just that. The Basic Infantry Course. There is also (im told) an Advanced Infantry Course comming up as well. The Basic one was fun and very informative. You might check it out. Also the Air Assault Training would be for the older players that have already done the basics. That was my intent anyway.lol

        Dredge, awesome idea and some flight training never hurt anyone. It just adds another aspect to the game here. If people want to see more basic infantry, then step up to the plate and help out.

        Ia drang is perfectly played when the air wing is top notch so I say we push for a flight school. Knowing who attends these will let future commanders know who they can rely on. Heck, maybe we can push to have flight pins created for people to earn and put in their sigs. Let's people know they took the class. Adding more dimension to the community is always good.

        Keep the ideas rolling and let's move towards reality with these ideas.

          [edit]
          I believe most of the above mentioned have been covered in the TG Basic Infantry Class which was held not too long ago.[/edit]

          With the exception of reaction to contact, breaking contact drills, convoy drills etc. Which I'm sure it will be included in the Advanced Infantry class. (hint hint TG instructors)

          Air Assault would be a great addition as well. Anyone TG members with prior experience in this?

              I think Air Assault would be perfect considering the amount we use these tatics in game. It'd probably be a quick class, but would have to include:

              Entering/exiting helos and other aircraft
              Securing a landing zone
              HALO jumping
              Landing under fre
              Use of Helo guns and observer seats
              Fast roping using Carver's awesome new script
              Maybe sum it all up with a mock landing, securing the LZ, then navigating back to a pickup LZ under a time limit. Maybe add in talking the helo down to a safe landing.

              I would totally sign up for this class.

                  I also would like to instruct. I will PM the admin and post as well. If need be I can get a map together. Also where can we get carvers mod?

                    Re: Air Assault School

                    One that I have noticed the past few days, is that when people disembark, they try to communicate to the pilot on Direct Chat that they can take-off.

                    This simply doesn't work, as the Direct VON isn't heard of the spinning rotor blades. I think a Salute in front of the pilot would be much better. If we could all start doing this our egresses will be much better/faster.

                      When I am SL or PL I usually tell the pilot to wait 10 seconds and then go regardless if people are that slow or are having problems then they'll have to wait for a reinforcement flight and get themselves sorted. This allows the ground team to focus on setting up a perimeter and securing the LZ and keeps the choppers on the ground as little as possible.

                        These are the issues that we will discuss/train on when the Air Assault Course is available

                          Not sure if I'm really qualified to instruct. Aside from never using helo guns I've got 1 HALO jump under my belt.

                          I'd definitely help out. Maybe a guest instructor spot.

                            Just for the pilot to tell people they have 15 seconds to disembark and shout loudly when one touches down. If anyone is still aboard after those 15 it's their own fault. Simple and effective :D
