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.
RECRUITMENT REQUIREMENTS
Ability to stay calm and collected in stressful situations

805th Sentinels

Human AWACS/GCI

The functions of GCI and Strike command are consolidated under the 805th Sentinel squadron. These talented staff are tasked with controlling the air war during all campaign ops. 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.




26th Air Force Platoon

Ready to strike day or night, the 26th Air Force houses all the NA 33rd’s land-based fighters and attack aircraft. Combining a lethal mix of air superiority and close air support, the 26th Air Force is equipped for any conflict in the Caucasus or Persian Gulf.
RECRUITMENT REQUIREMENTS
Ability to land and takeoff from airfields. Use basic weapons. Follow waypoints.

81st Dragons

F-16C Viper

The newest squadron to enter service for the NA 33rd, the Dragons have currently been loaned F/A-18Cs from the Navy until they take delivery of the deadly new F-16C Viper. Like their brothers on the Navy side, the Dragons are well equipped for CAP, SEAD, and Strike missions. Note that the NA 33rd is recruiting for the F16-C Viper, and the plan will be for all members of the 81st Dragons to be transitioned to the airframe during mandatory events as soon as the module is deemed ready for service. Weekly training exercises are now including the Viper for our pilots to familiarize themselves with the systems.

323rd Death Rattlers

F-15C Eagle

The airframe called upon by the Air Force for the most demanding A2A encounters, the F-15C Eagle is the scalpel, the Death Rattlers being the hand that inflicts the damage. Rattlers are stationed at various airfields around the Caucasus and Persian Gulf theatres of operation.

75th punishers

A-10C Warthog

Punishers’ tool of choice for Close Air Support missions is the A-10C Warthog. Under the protection of the CAP flights, the Punishers support rotary mission objectives by raining down terror with their massive weapons loadouts, as well as the ‘brrrrrrrrttt’.




6th carrier wing Platoon

Representing the best that the TAW Navy has to offer, the 6th Carrier Wing is able to mobilize to hot spots in the Persian Gulf and Caucasus regions on short notice and be on station for whatever missions are deemed critical to the war effort.
RECRUITMENT REQUIREMENTS
Ability to land and takeoff from airfields. Use basic weapons. Follow waypoints.

VF-133 Wolfpack

F-14B Tomcat

The pre-eminent carrier interceptor, the Tomcat’s main role is Combat Air Patrol, however their A2G avionics and considerable bomb-carrying capabilities make them a suitable platform for ground attacks as well.

VFA-135 Black Knights

F/A-18C Hornet

Given the Hornet’s broad array of loadable armament, the squadron’s current duties include performing the roles of CAP, SEAD, and Strike. The Black Knights are exclusively based on CVN-74 John C. Stennis, operating from wherever conflict may arise.

VMA-133 Seahawks

AV-8B Harrier

When low and fast and hard-hitting are part of the strike mission playbook, the Seahawks are the weapon platform of choice, ideal against well defended targets. At the same time, the Harrier is more than adept at protecting themselves from air threats.




17th whirling scourge Platoon

The rotary platoon in service for the NA 33rd.  17th Whirling Scourge is deployed on a variety of tasks including: scouting and target designation, close air support, SEAD, combat search and rescue, and logistics. If you think that runways are for the weak, like to defy physics and beat the air into submission, then this is the platoon for you.
