Rules/Guidelines for Trainees and Officers Under the Commander

The following are rules and guidelines for the  Helldiver Squadron organization. Any pilot, officer, trainee/rookie, or base airman must abide by these policies in order to be a participant in the recruited forces.

No missions are to be put up on the wiki page.

No training maneuvers are to be mentioned on the wiki page.

No names of Force members are to be mentioned.

Callsigns are to be encoded. See the Head Outfield Officer’s page for encoding information.

Locations of air activity are not to be mentioned.

Locations of ground units, bases, hangars, ect; are not to be mentioned.

Specifications regarding the types of aircraft are to be encoded. See the Head Outfield Officer’s page for encoding information.

Recruitment screening methods and questions are not to be posted on the wiki page.

We know these seriously limit your editing, but we have to be cautious, as we are up against an enemy much bigger in force than ours.

ANY DEVIATION FROM THE ABOVE LISTED RULES WILL RESULT IN SERIOUS CONSULTATION WITH THE E.W. AND THE COMMANDER.

Rules regarding non-offensive flights:

Reconnaissance flights are perhaps more common than orchestrated attacks. In order of how many are completed, small antagonizing and attacks on private craft come first. Then reconnaissance missions concerning the E.W. After that, full-on offensives directed at large EAF junctions and wings.

Recon:

No communication with any aircraft except on designated frequencies specifically set aside for E.W. use.

Absolutely, and we mean absolutely, no flying anywhere near an aircraft shown on radar. The only spy planes we have are ones with long-range radar. It doesn’t matter if the craft is an EAF pilot or not. No flying near it. Go at least 15 nm away from the suspected aircraft. If the craft hangs around for a long time, report back. E.W. will decide whether to pull you back, or to send an interceptor squad.

Do not ever fight. If you are caught red-handed, and the enemy either attacks or calls for backup, fire up all engines and get out of that airspace. The zone will be declared a no-fly zone for the E.W. until all threats have retreated or have been eliminated. If you can’t get out, and the enemy is on your tail, or he has support from other fighters, climb to your highest altitude, maintaining control of your spy craft. Keep in mind that the higher you get, the thinner the air gets. Thus, your ailerons, rudder, elevators, and flaps will have little to no control at about 50,000 feet above sea level. If you are being shot at, you most likely will be downed. If you are a good recon pilot and you know your training, you won’t have gotten into this position. This pilot position is a dangerous one, and always will be. Constant patrols are circling above targets, so keep that in mind. Once you reach about 45,000 feet above sea level, the pursuing enemy will have very little control over their small fighters. Missiles and guns will have very little effect. Considering you have the faster plane, they will have to turn back. If they don’t, do not jink and jag. You must keep speed and control. They will most likely lose control at  high altitudes, and this is any spy plane’s advantage.

Rules regarding the deployment and actions of fighter aircraft:

The main spearhead involved in frontal attacks on the EAF is the deployment of vast amounts of fighter aircraft. Often, the tank-busters such as the A-10 Warthog will fly first in a wave of ten or more, strafing ground targets. Mainly meaning parked or taxiing airplanes, airports, hangars, and generally destroying everything in their path. These craft are heavily armored. Then, often, a second and third wave of bombers and escorting fighters will bomb the remains. The fighters will often peel off from the main group and attack the defenders. Rumor has it that someone outside of the EAF is developing an anti-aircraft turret, which could prove dangerous to heavy, slow craft like bombers, carriers, or tankers.

Not many rules. Just make sure you follow your lead plane to the target, protect the target, and finish off the remaining fighters.

Rules regarding bombing:

This is pretty self-explanatory. Bombing has no limits.

No missions without proper protection.

No flights without explicit consent of the Bombing Wing.

Suspension of Ranks

Suspension of Ranks refers to any officer or airman who fully disregards the policies or specifics relating to Helldiver Squadron. This specifically refers to arguments held against tactical officers, the Head Outfield Officer, and the Commander. The offender will be reduced one or more ranks; depending on the accusation, the extension of this suspension can vary widely. If you don’t break any rules, you won’t have to worry about Suspension of Ranks. Even the General Officer can be suspended. Check the Ranks to view ranks in order.

RULES ARE SUBJECT  TO CHANGE
