617Dambuster Recruitment NOW OPEN!!!

24 posts in this topic

S! Allies,

    AirSlayr88 here with a message to ALL...After much discussion 617DB has been approved to recruit selectively. What does selective recruitment mean? Simply put it is not open for in-game auto recruitment, a recruiter must add you. This is to avoid the unmanageable flood of new players giving us the ability to find new and old pilots who are enjoying the game and to assist in actively training the newer pilots.

 

Who We ARE

History:
     617 Dambusters were formed in 2004 by Charlie3 and Kizmet. Upon creation it was the first and only squad dedicated to the sustained strategic bombing of Axis RDP facilities. We have lead the WW2 Online community for years on the strategies and techniques of bombing and bomber defense. While we concentrate most of our efforts on bombing whether its CAS or RDP, we have many pilots who favor fighters and the thrill of formation flying.

Learn more at 617dambusters.com

I don't see any responses on the Dambusters' website (New Recruits section).

What are you waiting for, gang!  The Axis factories aren't going to bomb themselves!

 

Truly, it takes a special kind of player to be an RDP bomber.  Precision is the key as you have to have all your settings and your altitude just right.  They're long missions, for just a few seconds of gratification, then a long way home to make sure to put the bomber back into supply by RTB (returning to base).  However, when you log in and announce an RDP raid on the Allied channel and see players and high command both cheering you on, knowing the advantage it gives them, it makes it more than worthwhile.  When you get together with squaddies and announce what Axis factories are down, you do it with a special kind of pride in your voice.  You know that, if the Allied side does a heavy push, the Axis won't be able to keep up with the amount of equipment being lost.  That leads to towns being rolled over by Allied players while Axis players defend with bolt action rifles (all they have left).  You watch the map move eastward and know you had a MUCH larger than average part in it.

 

It's the life of a bomber pilot.  It's a "way of life" for the Dambusters.

Dambusters didnt only do RDP

60 bombers over an AO was pretty much an escorted walk through the enemy AB.
Nothing lived through 480 bombs in the square

 

Glad to see them back

We prove time and again the Dambuster Motto:

"Not just a squad...a game imbalance."

Axis player would talk to me asking for the bombing to stop...they truly hated 20 to 40 bombers destroying there supply list.... Great times. Great squad. Wrote the book on RDP

Dambusters are the s**t. Couldn’t tell you how many Allied victories we owe to the Dambusters between RDP domination, AB AQ’s and more. Truly a badass squad.

Thanks to all who posted reminiscing on the squad :) So  you know we have become more active with the recent changes to RDP repair timers! Tonight Axis RDP resupply is 92% slower and trust me they do feel it on the ground. We are still recruiting new and veteran pilots. Feel free to PM me on here or in game if you would like to be considered for a slot. S! GL/HF

I've pushed a recruitment announcement for you guys on Facebook. We need to get the RDP war back in order, and I think we're on the path to doing so! Let's get your team built up and hope the Axis guys do the same for the sake of creating a more compelling game play environment.

S!
