A standardized ranking system to provide an overall command structure would go against how the Operation is Currently set up. We had talked in the past about maybe setting up a branch of OPPF for those who want a more structured system however those ideas never moved beyond discussion. As it stands OPPF is more of a free game operation. As in everyone gets let loose in a grand hunting field and it will be up to the leaders of the orgs involved and the lone wolves participating if they want to hunt down small prey and scavenge for neat things or work together to take down bigger game seeking grander trophies. Itd be better to set up it up more as guidelines for operation than standardized operating procedures.That being said overall it looks pretty good and would provide the distinction for those roles. Still, that will be our greatest challenge is the large scale coordination for an operation this size without an actual command structure to unify everyone participating under.And yes, that is a fair point about the UEE fleet lacking carrier support in that battle. Even if they had carrier support though, the description of that particular Kingship leaves me hesitant to believe the UEE would have stood any better a chance.
When you look at the wings, the tips look like blades. Makes me wonder if it's supposed to attack with them. Also, the Tomahawk and Hatchet cargo frigates (I suppose they would classify as frigates or corvettes) have rams on the front of the ships.If you thought a scythe could be bothersome with that little ramming blade of theirs, imagine what those can do...
Special Forces Wing idea I charted up and discussed with Ogi and ~L~
@Ogi_the_Great -Consistent discussion on skirmish tactics-Why our current small capital ships would get mulched by a Kingship as opposed to bombers.-Marine manpower concerns-War of attrition
I used to call it P-Day after Pitchfork,but I'm favoring V-Day atm. V for Vanduul,Vacon,Vengeance, and Victory.
Also, for you Jack:
That was my point Ogi. Your contributions in this thread's current discussion along with ~L~ resulted in the product that is currently the Special Forces Wing. I like to give credit where it is due.
I agree with the raid term,but I've heard nothing of capital ships shooting into different instances though that does sound strangely interesting. What I remember from CR before though was the russian nesting doll effect with instancing. A capital ship is in an instance and other ships inside it are in their own instance within the ship so when they deploy they are in the same instance. This is a force multiplier by instancing making carriers even more critically important.
I also would like to know what the hell that is and why it is for me. It looks like an aircraft carrier transformer punching an alien ship.
Just for some clarification about Spec Ops/Spec Forces. A lot of folks seem to get these confused. Special Forces Units go on Special Operations Missions. but are not the only ones to do so. Tiber Recon Rally can be a form of Spec Ops. The Ops implies an organized mission or goal outside of the main OPPF campaign. Spec Forces denote a special elite group, which most likely will fall down to individual organizations to supply or field to take on those missions as they come up.
I would argue that OP as a whole will not work if the Vanduul are not governed by the persistence system. Victor Vanduul need to stay dead if we're going to retake Orion.
Phase 0 - Create the OPPF Think TankCreate the cartography think group.Create the supply and logistics think group.Create the space combat think group.Create the ground combat think group.Create the tactics and strategy think group.Create the communications and command think group.
No plan survives first contact with the enemy.
In addition we're not planning mainly around our capital ships. They more or less are going to be used as logistical stations to cover the utilitatarian ships until called upon from our other plans you may or may not have read.
We're also using bombers not fighters against capital ships as fighters are grossly ineffective in comparison and it would only increase the casualty rate.
I'm pretty sure Deathcall is stridently in favor of using our Idris, Javelins, and Polaris assets in the main effort. I mean, I agree with you totally that they should not be the main effort, but the issue of where to put the bigger ships hasn't been settled yet.
