Extra-Territorial Air Command
He who controls the skies, controls the battlefield
Captain James Remy
Born and raised in Kansas, he was the stereotypical army boy, and he followed that stereotype to the letter. He joined the army and was placed as a pilot. A few years in world war two started and he was among the first pilots deployed to Europe.
In the war he distinguished himself as a pilot capable of out-flying most of the Germans. During the war, he survived five "suicide" missions and managed to outfly the German jet interceptors in a mustang.
One of his most distinguishing moments in the European theater was over Berlin. It was just supposed to be another daylight bombing raid and with the drop fuel tanks, it was supposed to be a cinch. It wasn't. He got his extra fuel tanks shot off on the way to Berlin, ignoring all common sense and orders, he stuck with the bomber until Berlin, and ran out of fuel on the way back. He crawled his way back to HQ heavily injured and earned a medical discharge, a Distinguished Flying Cross and a Purple Heart.
He recovered and joined the Air Aces, quickly becoming one of its top pilots.
Then the aces were nationalized, he was shuffled around a bit, doing a short stint as a pilot trainer. Finally, he was plopped into the role of commander of the Extra-Territorial Air Command (ETAC) and allowed to handpick a team of pilots for the job.
1st Special Operations Squadron
Also general organization structure that I'm planning on clobbering together.
Squadrons are the smallest compulsory organizational structure in the ETAC. Squadrons are organized into groups that are separated by bases (One group per base. I'm hoping for multiple bases later in the game) Groups are organized into Wings(one Wing for one stretch of territory) which are all organized into the ETAC.
EDIT: What is the name of our first base?
