Rolling Thunder 18 (RT 18) Predator's Gallop - Mission 1 Manning Thread

Recommended Posts

H hour for the Mission 1800 GMT Saturday 31 March (early Sunday morning in Oz): https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?iso=20180331T1800

 

Strongly suggested, if possible, that you arrive 30 - 45 mins prior for briefings, comms checks, making sure everyone has the right version of SB, etc. so we can start at H hour.

 

If you turn up part way through we will "pause" and you can join.

 

Of course, the later we start the longer it will go for.

Key:

 

Red  = Must fill

 

Blue = Should fill

 

Black = Nice to fill

 

Purple  = Part of a pair and unlikely to be filled (see note below).

 

You'll note the Alpha call signs in most of the Troops are Scorpions (F8 control only). Unless we are overwhelmed with attendess, the Alpha callsign in each Troop will also have a crewable vehicle too (A and C). The Troop Leader will have the Bravo. These paired vehicles are marked in Purple above. Ideally, we need three humans per five vehicle Troop.

 

If you all pick Black slots, people will be re-assigned to ensure that Red or a Blue ones are filled and then we'll worry about the Black ones. If you are brand spanking new then happy for you to occupy a junior call sign - but the units all need some people in them otherwise it will be unfair on the OC position "29".

 

Lastly a note on callsigns. "29" is Two Niner, not Twentynine. :)

Done. :)

 

Thanks for starting the ball rolling.

 

Also to avoid a nervous wait, I'll be the OC (unless someone really wants to do it).

 

I'm not creating this one so I'll be in the dark too and I have a good understanding of how this show go - just to avoid any "die gloriously" charges. :)

Great response to date, still need a FO though.

 

Hedge, Hedge, ...? ;)

 

Also if someone wants 27 that would let Bond_Villian (Villain?) move to 22A?

 

Now for the other Blue jobs.

Done. Just remember that's a package deal so you'll have 23A (non playable) and 23C (playable) under your control.

any blue fill you want me to fill.  

 

SnS

 I'll give you the SHQ.

 

Not really a combat role but I have a feeling the HQ will need to defend itself, perhaps more than once, before this is over.

Put me in any of the 4 troops

 

 

Well they are all Troops. I'm assuming you mean a "Recon Troop" as opposed to say "Admin Troop"? :)

There are:

1 x HQ Troop "0"

4 x Recon Troops "1" to "4"

1 x Admin Troop "5"

1 x AD Troop "6" and

1 x Assualt (mech) Troop "7"

 

Troop is a size descriptor, not a role descriptor. :)

Jumo has asked for 27 so I can give you 22A.
