1stfs Fighting Griffins2fs the doctorsS77th 3rd AS v34th AS 6fs the jokers 33rd as small

The fighting 99th boasts several specialized sub squadrons also known as 'elements'. These are typically 4 person teams who have worked together for extended periods of time with each other and their chosen air frames. They have their own aircraft skins which are then added to our missions. Alot of work goes into creating these skins and ensuring every skin has a slot in every mission and as such only dedicated & active members will receive such honors.

Any member wishing to join an existing element should contact the flight lead (position 1) located in the Squadron Roster.

Any member wishing to start their own flight element should contact a squadron admin or post a new thread in the forums. 

33rd as small

 33rd Attack Squadron : The Dirty 33rd

"We are skilled in many, but don't claim any one... Just what it takes to get it done"

Unlike many squadrons claiming a particular type of airframe, we try to stay diverse. Always ready to serve in any capacity: CAP, CAS, Transport, etc.The Dingoe usually kills by going straight for the throat, but will also adapt it's hunting tactics to suit different circumstances. The 33rd operates in a similar manner. We are always ready for a head on "balls to the wall" fight or a strategic "war of attrition". Either way, we play to win...and enjoy ourselves while we are at it. Our ranks consist of Crew Chiefs, Truck Drivers, Pilots, and more. All of which tend to have a dark and twisted sense of humor... hence the name "The Dirty 33rd."
