COMBAT OPERATIONS OFFICER'S REPORT #13 (2020.14)

REPORTING OFFICER: Admiral Miles "Tails" Prower, COO
DATE SUBMITTED: 16 November 2020

INTRODUCTION
"Hey, check it out!" Colonel Silwar Naiilo said before taking a pull from the Combat Operations Office mug that he had been given alongside his traveling companion upon arriving to the Aggressor.
"Simulation pods, yeah that's nothing new." Commander Bai'et Decol replied, taking a sip as well.
"Three are in use and two are open but that's not what I'm pointing out here." Colonel Naiilo pointed to black thick cabling running from each pod into a central device. "I've never seen that before. Let's check it out."
"Are you sure we should? We're supposed to meet the Admiral."
"I served with Tails, we go waaay back. What are you, chicken?"
"Let's do it."

The two pilots settled into the open pods and hit the familiar locking switch that brought the canopy down. The familiar universal TIE controls were there and as the simulation fired up, there was a craft selection screen that popped up. To Silwar's chagrin, it was TIE Fighters, TIE Bombers, TIE Interceptors and TIE Reapers. Then he looked up and saw a total of five pilot helmets at the top left. He had a theory.

"Hey Bai'et."
"Yeah?" Decol's voice came back crystal clear.
"I think these are networked. I'm taking an Interceptor."
"Going Bomber."

Soon they were looking out at an asteroid field with an MC75 looming before them, a furball already happening, a TIE Bomber, a TIE Reaper and a TIE Interceptor engaging A-Wings, Y-Wings and X-Wings along with a Corellian Corvette. Silwar looked to his left slowly exiting the Star Destroyer's hangar and sure enough, he saw a TIE Bomber beside him.

"Hey Decol, do a barrel roll."
The next thing he knew, the TIE Bomber was doing a barrel roll.
"We can fly as a team now?! Who else is in here?"
"Well well well, if it isn't my new COOAs."
"Oh sithsp-" Bai'et muttered.
"Admiral!" Colonel Naiilo swallowed. "I assume you'll want to see us in your office?"
"No, get down here and get this A-Wing off my six!"
"Aye, sir!"
"Welcome to SQUADRONS, gentlemen."

And thus folks, all of our capital ships are fitted with the SQUADRONS upgraded sim-units. A team of 5 can face up against simulated opponents or against another set of 5 from another ship. With networking systems being substantially upgraded, you can finally settle those bar tabs without the risk of getting killed.

Anyways! I'd like to welcome our new COOAs, COL Silwar Naailo and CM Bai'et Decol, the squadron commanders of Tempest and Epsilon Squadrons respectively. They've already jumped in attacking multiplayer reports.

I've introduced a new competition for those of you that are getting assists in Squadrons. See competition 3208: Help Me Help You for more details. Help Me Help You's start date is actually November 1 so all screenshots from there on are eligible. Speaking of Squadrons, check out Commander Decol's TIE Cors Power Hour

I'm working on an update and refresh for the COO Manual and will present the pilot draft to the respective parties for feedback and approval. Career awards that I determined were not awarded have been awarded to their respective pilots.

As a reminder submissions for Squadrons competitions 3183, 3184, 3185 and 3208 must be sent with the highest scoring screenshots for their respective qualifiers to the office e-mail at tc-combat-ops-office@googlegroups.com to be counted
