Now, this is pure a spontaneous idea in the discord, but seeing how much reaction it received I will officially plop it here. So consider the idea ...

PLOPPED

The idea is as followed, a Ginga Bomber crew assigned to YSS Tokyo ( If @Andrew doesn't mind of course) as part of <insert name> wing that will conduct various missions into enemy territory by planetary or space bombardment. Think about raids put on planetary factories, HQ, spaceports, etc. Or space raids think of starship torpedoes (Red October style?) starbase bombardments or other structures. I mean we do what we are best at...bomb the shit out of the enemy. But we can also do an evacuation from behind enemy lines (we can chance the bomb hud to cargo hud) and more...endless possibilities!

Crew: (Interest?)
Escort Fighters
Smash that like button or something...above is what we got...so we got 5 more spots free? (so we can have 7 heh this will be cramped. But good for team building!)

I'm interested, buuuuuuuuuuuut admittedly pressed for posting time as it is, so I can't guarantee that I'll make a character. However, if I do, she'll probably be a gunner or (if @RaWolfe allows it) an escort fighter pilot.
Why not both?? In a way it would make sense to me that a squad for bomber and escorts would require to handle both in bomber and escort function. just an idea

Currently what I wish to propose is the use of the YSS Akagi, an upgraded Heitan class assigned to the 1XF to provide support in space and planetary combat. The wing will be called The Dragons. Following this, the pilot's codenames will become:
  • Bomber Pilot 1: Red Dragon
  • Bomber Pilot 2: Gold Dragon
  • Fighter Pilot 1: Frost Dragon
  • Fighter Pilot 2: Storm Dragon
  • Fighter Pilot 3: White Dragon
  • Fighter Pilot 4: Black Dragon

Names can be changed ofc :)

The first stop for the YSS Tokyo will be to assist in the extermination of the Rixxikor in the Tange System/Investigation of the Piggy-back signal. (More will be explained later) so your first missions should revolve around that as @RaWolfe and I have discussed. I will be placing an NPC into this on a light basis likely, https://stararmy.com/wiki/doku.php?id=character:asano_namika once I get her converted to 1XF.

Maybe instead of having exclusively bomber or fighter pilots, there could be pilots that are cleared for both? That way if it's needed, pilots can swapped their roster as needed.

Also competitions could be held for the prize of piloting the bomber.

Or there's just more than one bomber in the wing if everyone wants to be pilots and not the other crew

Yea that’s what i have in mind also. But we can go with what Yuuki said and have two bombers in our wing? We can discuss it in DM :)

Thx for the update Andrew :) we will take the area in account. NPC is ofc welcome and thx everyone for the great interest in this plot done by the two wolfs!

Do we have good canon on bomber wing composition? how many bombers, how many escorts? What are the escorts? Mamuchis?
