Yep, my gaming bud, 3rdI, is a WWI buff too !  And we dicussed that recently and checked references, to be sure. After seeing that movie "Fly Boys" not Fly Boyz ! :laugh:  And that Hex pattern was not painted on ... the fabric was dyed to look that way. I did two of my Reaver Titans in a similar pattern ... Tally Ho !!  :)

QUOTE
Something I have noticed with the introduction of AeroImp is that a fair number of players are calling their AeroImp forces Fleets or Armies. ?This just makes me go grrr....

An Aeronautical force would be made up of
Elements (1 Bomber, 2-4 Fighters)
Flights (2-3 Elements)
Squadron (3-4 Flights)
Flying Group (3-4 Squadrons)
Wing (USAF 4 Groups, 1 is a flying Group)
Numbered Air Force (# of Wings assigned to region of NAF's command)

In M41 a Numbered Air Force equivelant would most likely be a Fleet or Planetary Imperial Navy Command or Planetary Air Defense Command.

So the most often misused term of fleet in relation to a number of aircraft could really be equal to many more Aircraft. ?1 Dictator carries 4 Squadrons a mix of Starfury fighters and bombers. That is a Wing on the Dictator. ?Now in a very possible Imperial Fleet of an Emperor, Mars, and 2 Dictators you will have 5 Wings (2 on the Emperor) with 4 Squadrons each. ?That is a Fleets worth of aircraft.

The biggest term I would use for AeroImp is Wing, Squadron or Flight is more appropriate.

No where have I heard all these terms before...trying to remember now.  They asure are familar.

:D  :p  :D

Sorry inside joke betwen me and organgesm
