NEWS

Since last time, the biggest news was the opening of our 10th squadron, Lambda. Under the command of CM Genie, they're now one of the four squadrons aboard the ISDII Hammer. It's been a very long time since we've had ten squadrons, and we're actually heading for number eleven soon at this rate...

The roster is up another six pilots thanks to some returning veterans and a slew of new cadets brought in by COL Zekk Terrik, well done on that. We lost a few to the Reserves recently, too, which softened the net gain but still left us in a position where all ten squadrons have between 10 and 12 pilots each. We have some breathing room on the roster to take on a few more pilots before we'll need another squadron, but we've also got Star Wars Squadrons right around the corner.

In Raise the Flag, the Warrior has posted 11218 points with the Challenge at 4858 and the Hammer at 3415 points. Among the squadrons, the top three's a lot closer with Theta at 4650, Tempest at 4345, and Rho at 4276. There's still ten more days in the event and a fair number of bonus points still outstanding, so we could definitely see some positions change hands before the end. Good luck, everyone!

Our uniform generation application, Tempest Tailoring Tool, has been updated once more to add Lambda's patch and resolve an issue with certain PINs not wanting to pull information from the database. The updated version is available from the Uniforms page in the database The latest update comes to us courtesy of the Internet Officer, AD Turtle Jerrar. Thanks, Turtle!
