"There are those who believe that life here began out there, far across the universe, with tribes of humans who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians, or the Toltecs, or the Mayans. Some believe that there may yet be brothers of man who even now fight to survive, somewhere beyond the heavens."

The Fire Direction Center is the heart of the Gun Crews! Military Intel, Information and Enemy Assessments can be found here, alongside Operation Planning!

Preparations and discussions regarding operations will take place here, in the Battlestar Gun Crews Fire Directions Center (FDC). This is the place, where all information about the enemy, tactical situation and operational planning culminate in the final orders given to all Gun Teams aboard their trusted turrets. This is, where the destruction of entire fleets may be decided. 

Battlestar Gunnery Terminology can be found here!

Enemy Assessment: A broad overview over the Cylon Fleet, Baseships, Doctrine, Capabilities, and Territories can be found here and attached to this discussion!


Feel free to post any ideas, comments or discussions regarding operations, military structure, and the role of Gun Batteries etc here! 

Mik Zeleahir compiled a beautiful little playlist of music that fits the typical Battlestar Galactica mood for battles, operations, and planning. It can be found here!

What are your plans to equip the Raven Fleet with more fire power? Pretty interesting section here!

Welcome aboard!
Right now, the goal is to use the existing firepower of the Raven to greater effect during operations, by manually manning the Battlestars Main Batteries with Gun Teams that are commandeered from the Fire Directions Center. This plan includes a full assessment of all main gun turrets aboard the Raven at the moment. I hope to get my hands on some "official" Battlestar Fanclub Schematics of the Raven to do that. 

Once we have a clear idea of all the weapons available already, we can, of course, think about equipping more firepower in the form of new, specialized ordnance, new weapon systems and so forth.
The main focus of this group is, of course, the iconic main KEW Turrets and frontal main batteries aboard the Raven, but our arsenal can also be expanded into missile launch systems, secondary flak batteries and such. 

Additionally, the group is of course always open to suggestions. Right now, everything is still only getting set up, so we are glad for any input! 

The prime way we can grant the fleet more firepower while still keeping to the original arnaments is by designing new munition types specialised in specific roles. There's a lot of fancy stuff you can do with a simple KEW turret, haha.

If you are curious, the first draft of our battlestar armament manual includes a short section about ordnance and different munitions types.

Very interesting!  Do you have the first draft ready for viewing?  I look forward to seeing it!

The first draft is attached to this discussion . For convenience, I also sent a message to you! Should there be any problems with viewing it, I will make sure to address it as soon as possible! 

In addition to Ordnance types, you will find a lot of other topics included into the first draft, including the personnel, operational procedures and the technical background of the weapon systems.

Attention Gun Crews! 

It is time to get to know those toasters!
1.) Learn more about the Cylon Fleet and Military Doctrine here!
2.)
 Learn more about the Cylon Territories here!

All information within the enemy assessment is based on observations throughout the re-imagined series and associated media. The goal is to provide a cohesive background and inspiration that may come useful in future operations or discussions. 

May the Lords of Kobol watch over you and may Artemis guide our fire
So Say We All!

ALL HANDS!
CONDITION TWO is in effect for all gun crews from this moment forward. 
On the 27th of August 8:00 pm EST the Battlestar Gun Crews will partake in Operation "Made Ya Look" . 
This operation will be primarily conducted by Gunstar Trireme, the Ravne Air Wing and MARDET. Our task will be to provide support and fall-back options, should anything go not according to plan. 

Battlestar Raven will remain in PATROL POSTURE for the entirety of the Operation.
Battery Detachments PSI and RHO will equip Anti Aircraft (AA) ordnance and will be on regular patrol duties. 

Battery Detachments SIGMA, ZETA, LAMBDA, and SAN will remain on stand by, fielding mixed ordnance of AA and HE ammunition per battery. 

Preventing the Cylons from calling reinforcements is of utmost importance. Should Blackbird II be unable to achieve this mission objective, the Raven Stand-Off Weaponry Division is to provide long range guided missiles to take out the station's communications arrays. 

Battery Detachments EPSILON, OMEGA and JUPITER will be loaded with HEAA ammunition. They will be only acting as a weapon of last resort to cover Trireme's retreat, should Cylon reinforcements jump in. 

May the Lords of Kobol make it so we will not need any of these preparations. But should it come to that, do not falter, do not despair. 
We are the burning arrow of Artemis, the flaming spear of the Lords of Kobol,
We are the PRIDE OF THE COLONIAL FLEET!
All Gun Crews, prepare for battle -
SO SAY WE ALL!

Battlestar Gunnery Terminology - a handy guide is now available here!

Battlestar Raven KEW Battery Detachment Seals - Each Detachment has its own personality! 

OUTSTANDING job on the creation of this!

Love it!
