On the Calamari Cruiser Windstorm, home of Hope Wing, the protocol droid C6P07 appears on the holoscreens and delivers his traditionnal speech, "Pilots, may I have your attention please, Major Vrei'Sik is about to give his bi-weekly debriefing...".

Welcome, members of Hope Wing, to another Wing newsletter. The semester's end is hitting hard so I didn't have much time to send one earlier. So, after a month, a lot of things need to be said. Let's get to it...      

News from the Patriot Battle Fleet

1. PBF310

The final results can be viewed at

For this mission, Hope Wing had a total of 14 reports, for a total participation of 54%. We improved by 10% over last mission. My goal was 60%, we almost achieved it. It would be easily achieved with some decent participation from Phoenix. Still, we're on the right track guys, keep it up!

So, on with the numbers:

With 14 reports out of 26 pilots (43% participation), we finished 2nd wing in PBF for the third time in a row. Thanks to Green with a great performance again, and toFireclaw with an incredible showup.
Green had 6 out of 9 (66%) reports and finshed 3rd squad in PBF, congrats!
Fireclaw had 6 out of 7 (86%) reports, great participation, almost 100%, and fourth in PBF, even with their low numbers!
Phoenix got 2 out of 10 (20%) reports, again a pitiful show up, at least not a zero this time. Wake up squad, Hope Wing needs you! Again a great narrative from Jae-Keito Gra.

2. PBF 311

The mission is not out yet but should be very soon.

3. Fleet status

Due to unfortunate resignations, lack of recruits and inactivity, the PBF is short in members, such that having 12 full squadrons seems too many. The Command staff is discussing currently the disbandment of two squadrons (not in Hope Wing) and the reorganization of the fleet more compactly. Keep your ears open for more details.

4. Scoring System

The new scoring system is now fully adopted and operationnal. You can download the reporter or score converter in the missions section of the PBF page.
