DCS Monthly Operations

From time to time, we host various DCS theater missions. These typically contain multi-role aircraft, helicopters and other numerous assets. Consult the calendar for the next upcoming mission. A few checklist items when considering a mission:

  • Election of Commander
    • Candidates determined through nomination or by request
    • In the case of no nominations or by request, one will be assigned
    • The commander should NOT fly the mission, but the decision is up to them. If the Commander does fly and killed, they are finished and removed from all comms.
  • Mission Review and Planning
    • To be posted at start time of workshop
  • Commanders determination and delegation of tasks
    • Aspects of mission planning:
      • Terrain analysis (areas of operations and interest and avenues of approach)
