FROM: Colonel Stryker, Squadron Commander
TO: LC Denys Elara
CC: HA Anahorn Dempsey, Firebird Squadron
DATE SUBMITTED: April 3, 29 ABY

Firebird PatchFROM STRYKER'S DESK Firebird Patch
Stryker fumed at his desk as he looked at the results coming in from the exercise; Lambda and Tempest had finished already, while Avenger squadron (representing the Admirals) had one task to go. Firebird Squadron, understrength and under-equipped since its inception six months previously, was currently on track to take fourth place with eight out of the required eleven tasks completed.

It was a bitter pill to swallow following their success in the Chalquilla Cup, which Firebird had claimed first place with an eleven-to-one win-loss ratio. Still, exercises like ReMobilisation were more about activity than skill, and Stryker knew he'd be far happier with a half-strength squadron that he could trust than a bunch of new and enthusiastic children who didn't know the meaning of teamwork, honour, and dignity.
Firebird PatchSQUADRON NEWS Firebird Patch
How is it April already?! As of Wednesday, I believe, Firebird will have been open for over six months, which is amazing! From Firebird spawned Eagle, and hopefully in time we'll see a third squadron and our own ship become reality. Until then, we just need to keep being awesome.

(Re)Mobilisation 3 is upon us, with three squadrons having already finished - Lambda, Theta and Avenger. While  they should be congratulated on completing their eleven tasks so early, perhaps next time they could consider sparing us mere mortals the embarassment of being out of the running within four days :P

Finally, and the biggest news to share, is that the Chalquilla Cup is more-or-less over, with one match still to be played followed by any tie-breakers. First place however, belongs to Firebird Team 1, aka "Foghorn Leghorn", who went 11-1 and fell only to Lambda's cheeky (some might say unsportsmanlike) use of three Support Craft with Mines and Turrets to ruin any semblance of fun the game may have! I am of course joking about that, but I had to be talked down by Travis and Turel because I was not happy with that result.

Firebird PatchCLOSING COMMENTS Firebird Patch
We hit the ground running with (Re)Mob 3; but things have slowed down a little due to the remaining challenges being SP focused. Firebird has never been, nor will it ever be, a squadron where people are forced to play formats they do not enjoy. If this means we have to give up podium positions for competitions like ReMob or Raise the Flag, so be it. I would rather have a squadron that was made up of pilots who were happy with their performance wherever it came, than one which pinned all of its hopes and dreams on victory and came away disappointed.

That's my job as CMDR, you're just here to have fun :P

(Re)Mob Challenges Complete: 8/14
