About Us

We are the 332nd VFG

Our group not only consist of squadrons of the original 332nd fighter group, but of other ww2 squadrons in an effort to show unity and appreciation to all service members. We are a group full of friends that can always use more friends to share the passion of Flight simulations with. We continuously attempt to find that balance of fun with historical accuracy while flying together.

History

Who were the 332nd

The 332nd Fighter Group was activated on the 13th of October 1942, and operated until the end of WW2. The group was predominantly manned with African-American personnel, they routinely flew fighter sweeps, ground attack, and of course bomber escort missions. Called the “Tuskegee Airmen”, These airmen made a pioneering contribution to the war and the subsequent drive to end racial segregation in the American armed forces.

Pursuit  Squadron

The 99th Pursuit Squadron was formed on the 16th of January 1941, with the first class graduating on the 7th of March 1942. The commanding officer was Ben O. Davis, who would later command the 332nd FG. CPT. Charles B. Hall would be the first African American pilot to shoot down an enemy aircraft. The 99th supported allied invasions of Sicily and Italy and provided close air support for the U.S. 5th army, French, and polish Armies during the campaign. In more ways than one, the 99th Pursuit Squadron led the way by being the first squadron created, and deployed overseas. The 99th squadron in game attempts to recreate the standard of the original 99th with more focus on historical accuracy, involving formation and tactics. The 99th in game is a pure fighter group and extensively trains to master their craft.

The 100th Fighter Squadron was one of the “Tuskegee Airmen” Squadrons during WW2. The 100th mirrors the impact of all the 332nd fighter groups with a few distinctions. Roscoe Brown, who would later be the commander of the 100th, would be known for his duel and victory over a German 262 “JET” fighter plane. Some say it was the first jet fighter downed in aerial combat. The 100th was the ONLY 332nd Squadron to shot down the German 262 Fighter, with their total being 3. The 100th was one of the first units of the 332nd to also employ the Red Tail that is synonyms with the legend of the Tuskegee Airmen. This Squadron in game centers around collectivness and cohesiveness. We are a tight group that have a similar style of play, and routinely house some of the groups most capable pilots.

The 49th Fighter Group was activated on the 15th of January 1941 and has the distinct honor of being active for over 75 years. The Group conducted all operations in the Pacific Theater of Operations during WW2, and is credited with destroying 678 enemy aircraft during that time, a record that surpassed that of any other fighter group in the south-west Pacific. 43 pilots of the 49th would go on to become aces, including Maj. Richard Bong, who would score 22 of his 40 aerial victories while flying with the 49th. The 49th was equipped with P-40, P-47, P-38, and later P-51 aircraft. In the game, our 49th focuses heavily on the p-38, but will still fly previous mentioned Aircraft. Training is a focus with our group, to make sure we enhance the enjoyment of imersion within our gaming experience.

The 57th Fighter Group was a group of many firsts: first air unit to fly off an aircraft carrier in force, first US air combat unit in North Africa, and the first to modify the P47 for ground attack use. The unit was known to bring an abnormally high rate of its pilots back from missions in a time and theater where this was hard to do. Making use of the P-40F and K variants against 109F’s and G’s in Africa and later converting to the P-47D series which was used to great effect in Italy during Operation Strangle where large amounts of Axis supply was interdicted and destroyed they played a vital role in the war effort there. In IL-2, the 57th focuses on coordinated ground attack as well as fighter escort and working as a team to achieve objectives while trying to maintain a high survival rate.

No. 226 Squadron (RAF)

Commanding Officer

No.226 squadron was part of the Advanced Air Striking Force, first deployed in Fairey Battle at the beginning of the war in France to weaken German forces. The squadron suffered heavy losses during the Battle of France, and had to retreat to England, where it conducted operations against naval targets in Blenheim, then in Bostons soon after. Its crew participated in the invasion of Normandy among the 2nd Tactical Air Force and kept supporting the Allied armies until the end of the war in their B-25 Mitchell. This unit, despite its shaky start and the frequent changes of airframe, became proficient at what they were doing. Our virtual incarnation of the No.226 is aiming to assemble and train pilots who can switch from a bomber aircraft to another and still be reliable and efficient on their task.

Recruitment

Looking to join the 332nd

In 332, for new members we have a prospecting phase which is a 30 day period where we get to know you, you get to know us.  It gives us plenty of time to fly together, to learn how we fly and how you fly and just get that cohesion built up.  Also, it gives you time to choose a squadron within the group that best suits your play style / plane preference.  After the prospecting time is over you’ll become a full member and get to wear the -332FG- tags in game.

Essentially we’re a group of adults (we have a couple younger mature kids), we don’t do drama, we get together, we have fun and fly, we coordinate but not to the point where it’s MilSim and gets annoying / stressful if that makes sense.  There are always people on in the evenings, weekdays, and weekends.
