This thread outlines what UOAF is, its philosophy, and its governing rules. Participation in UOAF requires adherence to the following rules and procedures:
UOAF is United Operations Air Force, a squadron for Falcon BMS4 and DCS: A-10C. The institutions and rules of UOAF are vested by those laid by 1.0 and 4.0 in the United Operations Charter, and are enforced at all times. We welcome all pilots with reasonable competency in the simulations we fly as well as an attitude conducive for successful play.
UOAF is an organized form of play which will:
- Provide a professional, cooperative, and entertaining venue for UO regulars and non-regulars interested in military aviation.
- Will emphasize realistic tactics, communications, and teamwork to accomplish its missions.
- Will focus on campaign and tactical engagement play
- Will adhere to standard UO-style chain of command. Once a leader is nominated, it’s his show and his word is final.
UOAF is a squadron for the flight simulations BMS 4.33 and DCS: A-10C. UOAF is hosted by two squadron commanders, Krause and Force_Majeure.
Membership is vested through two criteria: frequent attendance of UOAF events as well as competency in the simulations we fly. The UOAF leadership team, in addition to consensus generated by fellow UOAF members, possess the authority to evaluate competency and hence selection for membership. Participants of UOAF events need not be members, though they must be cleared for flight readiness by the UOAF leadership team or fellow UOAF members.
The UOAF leadership team keeps and maintains a UOAF Roster.
- The chain of command will be respected and enforced at all times. Leadership consists of a Package Commander, a Flight Leader, and an Element Leader.
- Under no circumstance will pilots be able to edit their load outs, it is lead's (#1) or element lead's (#3)'s decision to do so and theirs only.
- Under no circumstance will pilots except Lead(#1) or the Package Commander change steer points in the 2D planner.
- Under no circumstance will pilots edit or move ground troops without notifying or consulting a second party of their action.
- Comms integrity will be maintained at all times and without exception.
- Discipline will be maintained in the air and without exception.
- Wingmen will follow their leads' orders and aircraft at all times and will respond to all directives appropriately. Failure to do so will result in a kick or ban from the squadron. Countermanding orders will lead to decisive disciplinary action.
- Flights will function within their assigned roles and flight plans as part of the package at all times and without exception.
- Hosts for UOAF events will save the campaign or mission file after the event is over, will make or add a post to an AAR thread related to the event, and host the campaign or mission save file for others to download at a later time.
UOAF events are considered the foremost activity for the squadron. Events are open to UOAF members as well as non-members who are considered ready. UOAF's most frequent event type is for BMS 4.32, though occasionally DCS: A-10C and DCS: World events are organized.
UOAF members and non-members will:
- RSVP either "yes" or "no" to the event in the appropriate event thread.
- Will adhere to 1.2 of the UOAF SOP's as well as relevant sections in the United Operations Charter.
- Will show up on time with all hardware and installations ready to go.
- Will indicate unforeseen tardiness or absence in the event thread on the forum.
- If unable to communicate tardiness or absence, will notify a UOAF member or make a thread in due haste after one's situation is recovered.
- Will behave themselves well and with professionalism before, during, and after the event as per 1.2.
