Welcome to the newest Squadron to MAS, Swiss Air Force Fliegerstaffel 17!
Operations were conducted throughout the Pacific and Indian Oceans, providing International Support against merchant vessel piracy and terrorism. Squadrons involved included 409 Sqn RCAF, RAF Combined Wing, Swiss Air Force 11 and 17 Squadrons, as well as VFA-142. This was a tactical Operation utilizing FSX@War CCP missions, static targets, and Air-Air practice. We do a couple of Operations every year! Check out our Active OP Page for more details, and check us out our latest photos on Facebook as well!
The release of FSX@War Carrier and Convoy Planner has allowed our Squadrons to integrate mission objects into our new Operations! Want to start your flight on the deck of a Carrier? Need moving targets to hit? We are adding convoys, targets, and carrier fleets on our TacPack Servers during Ops - regularly!
MAS is always evolving, based on new technology or software that is available.
MAS Recently invested heavily in some dedicated server hardware in order to offer its members a hosted multiplayer environment. What does this mean? Well, we are able to offer hosted two FSX Sessions, meaning they are run in a proper server, and are available 24/7.
We currently have two FSX STEAM based TacPack servers.
We also have our own dedicated Teamspeak 3 Server used for voice communications whilst in flight, but also to chew the fat with other members and have some fun.
Finally we have our forum/website systems including our flight tracking software all of which is designed to give members as many features for them to use as possible. These features are always under development so new features arrive all the time.
