USLANTCOM believes in training hard but not simply for the sake of training. We take the lessons learned and apply those lessons in large-scale missions that typically feature over forty people fulfilling various roles and offering a battlefield ambience over comms channels that is thrilling and immersive. These missions are typically housed in custom campaigns that occur every year. The following are some of the aforementioned, multi-mission campaigns we conduct:
Black Flag is our version of the Air Force's Red and Green flag exercises. Like those, Black Flag takes place on the DCS:Nevada map. We fly 6-8 missions that are aimed at the utilization of various skillsets, doing so in a cooperative environment with each other, our Aggressor squadron, and other human-voiced support units like JTACs, Ground Commanders, downed pilots, GCI, and more.
Cruise is our yearly deployment. We create a scenario that takes us to different theatre's against different enemies each year. These scenarios include heavily researched and meticulously crafted story-lines that stretch our creativity and effort to the limit. This event is often considered the highlight of our year for many.
RED VS. BLUE PVP EVENT
Over the holiday period each year, we split up the Wing into a Red and Blue team, and fight a four-mission pvp campaign against each other.
