North American 33rd Squadrons

The NA 33rd is organized under three Wings: the 26th Air Force, the 6th Carrier Wing, and the 17th Whirling Scourge. Flight operations reinforce the need for coordination between all aircraft in the AO. This is facilitated through live GCI and Strike Command in every mission.

NA Command

The highest level of command at the NA 33rd consists of the Commanding Officer, Executive Officer, Staff Officer, Head Drill Instructor, Field Specialist (team is responsible for mission creation and enhancement), Training Specialist, and Public Information Administrator. Drilling down through the Navy, Air Force, and Rotary platoons, promotion opportunities also exist as Platoon Commander, Squadron Lead, and Flight lead. Under the watchful eye of the HDI, a staff of highly-qualified Drill Instructors conduct Basic Badge requirements with new recruits, as well as more Advanced Badge qualifications as needed. Finally, Server Administrator and Technician roles ensure the continued health of the four DCS instances operating under TAW DCS NA batallion. Those folks willing to contribute to a thriving community of DCS enthusiasts will always have ample opportunities at TAW.

Note: any interested regular member of the NA 33rd is welcome to apply as a controller during mandatory events, regardless of the primary airframe they fly. Combined Arms (paid) or LotAtc (free) are the two tools that the controller has at their disposal to coordinate the war effort.

6th Carrier Wing Platoon

The Mission of the Naval Air Wing is to proficiently operate strike fighters based on the Carrier, providing a high degree of theatre wide mobility and increasing the striking distance of the NA 33rd. The Air Wing enables defense of the fleet through CAP, long range intercepts, and anti-ship strikes to ensure unimpeded freedom of navigation of ships and aircraft in ocean and coastal areas. The Wing is capable of conducting strikes on strategic and tactical targets deep into enemy territory while providing its own escort and SEAD flights and will also stay proficient in supporting CAS requirements. Our mandate is that the entire Navy team works together towards this common goal, and at the end of the mission we all safely return to the ship together.”
