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.

6th Fighter Squadron

“The Jokers”

 

The Jokers currently is an F-15C squadron in the Fighting 99th. We consist of pilots dedicated to countless hours of training to reach our full potential. We are ready for long range high altitude flights deep into enemy territory. The Jokers fly with a primary role in long range air search. On occasion we will escort other Fighting 99th Sub-Squadrons such as The Outriders. With the arrival of the F-14 and F/A-18 in the future, we will transition to these aircraft.


Recruitment Policy: Case by case basis determined by squadron members. Pilots must be dedicated to our squadron, show maturity and perform well in the F-15C.

Applications may be sent to either Toolbandit or Erik through private messages on the forum.
