While I want to be involved in ground combat and boarding, I'd be willing to also work as an intelligence specialist until such a time as it becomes necessary for me to do otherwise.
I've got a professional certificate in intelligence analysis and I'm an academic having written extensively about C4ISR, network centric warfare, and the role of STA and intelligence collection in modern warfare. Basically I've got some foundation of knowledge for the intelligence process, and I'd be happy to help.
I'll be happy to mate, I'm still working on reading it all. Putting on my intell analyst's cap for a moment!The intelligence process, which I've brought up in other posts, is defined as follows in ADRP 2-0 INTELLIGENCE: 1) Planning2) Collection3) Processing and Exploitation4) Analysis and Production5) Dissemination and Integration6) Evaluation and FeedbackAt this point, I'm at the collection phase. I have a plan in place to figure out what we need to know, and a vision of what the finished product should look like. To make that happen, I'm reading where we're at strategically and what we know about the Vanduul via these forums, plain speculation (which is a lot more valuable than you'd think when it's at least semi-educated), as well as what CIG et al have told us. In essence, the 'open source intel' phase which is easy, and obviously all we have to go on at this point.Once I feel comfortable in 'knowing' about it, I'll start to write up my opinions. Until then though, I'd be producing a shoddy product since I know next to nothing. In the mean time, those guidelines while extremely vague are the 'scientific method' of intelligence analysis. I can go more in depth into the nitty gritty of each step if y'all like and think it'd be beneficial.Edit: When the battle starts; myself and others start boarding and fighting, I'll take video of our experience so everyone can look it over and see it for themselves. We can then start to work out a plan to take down ships and ideally find the easiest routes to their centres of importance across the ship, as well as gaining a general understanding of the resistance we'll face in the process.Planning wins war.
First bit of info I've got.Its pretty obvious but it does need to factor into our operational strategy: procedural generation will likely not be at launch, and thus won't probably be in the Beta. This is important since essentially in order to win, we need to seize ground and that means making planetary assaults. As I understand it, we'll pull close to the planet and choose to land, where there'll be a landing cutscene and we'll spawn landed.So that means prepare for Omaha Beach. We're going to be landing right in the middle of their towns and centers of production, where their forces are bound to be the most concentrated. I do not know if we can use turrets on our Auroras/Redeemers at this point, but thats something to find out cause we could use them as a static heavy weapons platform to cover an advance, or at least protect disembarking troops for a while.
Now, Marcus had mentioned something about having an IRADAC meeting relatively soon, I was wondering if we'd be able to include Recon flight leaders? Or if that was too soon to do. Seeing as currently we're in the theory crafting stages of Op Pitchfork.
Wish I got involved in Operation Pitchfork sooner, this is exactly what I want to be contributing. I'm already doing this in my intelligence agency but on pirate orgs rather than Vanduuls, and I've having pretty good success. I'm hoping I can bring everything I can to the table for IRADAC!Also, meeting sounds like a great idea.
While I would definitely like to see a few recon pilots attending the meeting, as they would be on the front lines for IRADAC's work. If it's just a general meeting for those of us who are interested in the work, that's all fine as well. Having Recon pilots available would help finalize Hussar's after action report template - should he have it finished by the time the date of the meeting.
Though, I'm happy just getting to know everyone I'd be working with. Considering the fact that bonds forged now will most likely hold out longer than when the operation just begins.Needless to say - it'd be your call on what you'd like for the first meeting. (I'm sure we'll see more meetings closer towards the launch of PU and leading up to P-Day.)
Indeed, I think we should organize that seperatly in a sort of specific project meetings, so that we do not lose focus overall. my idea is more or less along those lines, for the most part this has been simply an idea, there are already parts in motion. Especially the beginning of a data analysis process, however if this is going to grow we should also organize ourselves. And that is currently my most basic Idea. In the coming week(s) I will see if I can draft up an agenda with points to discuss how to organize this endeavor.
I think what we can do now is a compile a large list of documents/sources to go through. After that we can split up the work and process everything. First meeting would not only be a get to know one another but also be a group review of everything gathered so far.
A large part of that will be figuring out how to get the specific kind of intel that is needed.
