Phoenix sat back at his desk and let out a low whistle, the beeping of the datapad had alerted him to the arrival of several award approvals. It seemed that Vice Admiral Clark was busy with things despite his upcoming move to the Warrior.
He picked up the comm device sat on his deks and thumbed it on with the switch on the side. "Major Shadowclaw, Commander Aval, could you both report to my office at 06:30 please", tomorrow mornings patrol required a few final tweaks before they could launch. Placing the comm device back on his desk he swung around on the low swivel chair and made towards the doorway which opened with the quintessential speed of Imperial architecture.
The hallway was only partially lit, another sign of the Challenge still coming back into service after extensive time in the reserves, however as he turned and entered the hangar the sight that greeted him was a remnder of the potency to come. Arrayed in groups across the vast expanse of the hangar deck sat the fighters of Wing X, off to port sat the mix of TIE Interceptors and Reapers of Inferno Squadron, to starboard the TIE Defenders and Missile Boats of Tempest and next to them the latest arrivals, the X-Wings and Y-Wings of Firebird Squadron, a reincarnation of the Infiltrator Wing of old. Finally lined up along the rear wall of the hangar and ready for tomorrows patrol sat the 12 Phantoms of Thunder Squadron, their three bladed solar arrays gleaming in the ever present lighting of the hangar bay.
Yes, the Challenge was indeed back...
Greetings Thunder Squadron and welcome to this weeks report.
It's been another decent week here in the squadron with communication from each and every one of you - not to mention some of you getting in some time on the flight line so good effort all around!
Star Wars: Squadrons continues to make itself felt within the TIE Corps, with the Combat Office recently releasing the requirements for Legions of Combat and Legions of Skirmish on the platform in addition to an updated submission form. I know a number of you are flying MP already and another bunch including myself are working thier way up to flight status so lets see if we can boost the Legion count this coming week.
Special thanks to VA Clark for getting the MSE awards dealt with in an expedited manner this morning, we had a number of Imperial Security Medals to hand out which are now all awarded. There are a few final bits and pieces from the last evaluation to come but by and large we're there now and set for the month. A few of you are also VERY close to promotions - so please make sure you complete the TIE CORE quiz so you can snag the coveted promotion to Lt Commander!
