"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 Minotaur

The Minotaurs pride themselves as being the most guerrilla warfare minded squadron in the fleet. Minotaurs are famous for using asteroid fields for cover fire and ambush points for Cylon raiders. We strike fast, we strike hard and then fade away. To try to hunt the the Hunters is an exercise in futility. We are the best. You are now in the maze, find your way out.

The Minotaur (Ancient Greek )

Here is a little history about the Minotaur:

The Minotaur (Ancient GreekΜῑνώταυρος [miːnɔ̌ːtau̯ros]LatinMinotaurusEtruscan Θevrumineś), was a creature with the head of a bull on the body of a manor, as described by Roman poet Ovid, "part man and part bull". He dwelt at the center of the Cretan Labyrinth, which was an elaborate maze-like constructiondesigned by the architect Daedalus and his son Icarus, on the command of King Minos of Crete

AIM HIGH!  Aim for a perfect score for yourself because you know you can do it.



Why would I want to join the Minotaur?


One of the things that makes the Minotaur special is the fact that we are taking the forethought and the idea of role-playing the idea of being something more that just the standard Mark II or Mark VII Viper Jocks. We are looking as a squadron to be outfitted not only with a cache of Viper Mark VII but with the Viper Mark III as well. The tactics that the Minotaur employ uses the Mark VII fighter as a bait and chase fighter to make the Cylon Raiders come to the battlefield of choice for the squadron. Once the Chase fighters pass through the kill zone the Mark III's swoop in with the heavy armament and dispatch the Raiders as quickly as possible.

The thoughts that the squadron has come up with is to have our deck crew and our quartermasters acquire us not only the heavier amored Viper Mark III but we have fitted these Mark III' s with high speed mini-gun cannons. We have fitted these weapons in the nose cone of the Mark III. This does not affect the stability of the fighter. What it does is not only allow the pilot to use the regular cannons mounted on the side of the Viper but it allows a heavy burst of firepower to take out any Heavy Raiders that may appear in the engagement. If we are in full ambush mode the normal Cylon Raiders are turned into space dust in less than 30 seconds of sustained Mini-Gun fire.
The main reason for the configuration of the squadron is to immolate the current 51st Operations Group which houses both the 25th and 36th Fighter Squadron of the United States Air Force. The reason I chose this Group is to one, find a squadron that is still using the A-10 Thunderbolt which is being used by the 25th upon which we are basing the Mark III Viper on. The 36th are using F-16 Falcons which are one of the fastest fighters in service to the Air Force at this time (The Joint Strike Figher not withstanding). The second reason was to find a Squadron symbol of the "past" that was not a Flying Tiger. As such the tail wing of our Mark III and Mark VII Vipers are painted in a Checkered pattern in Red and Black to be our own version of the tail wing that is displayed by these Warriors.

     I want to address the issue of responsibility on social media. This concerns all personnel but as SC's, we all have a responsibility to the club not to put anything out there that may could possibly show us in a bad light. The main problem comes from several incidents, at least one I can remember since I've been a member, where other clubs or organizations have used postings by members to detriment the club. If you have an issue with Command or other members, just remember..."TAKE IT TO PM!!!!" If you have any questions or concerns about this policy, contact me anytime. Thank you!

“Attention, Attention”

Belay the last comment. Ens Freya’s Trivia OP will take place May 14th. Gunny Iceworm’s OP will take place in June; the date will be announced later.

I recommend that you don’t miss out on either of these OP’s. When the Raven Battle Group gets together the sparks fly and the toasters are turned into scrap floating in space as a reminder not to mess with us!!!

"Attention Minotaur Squadron Attention"

Our next Mission will be on May 14th at 10:PM EST. This Mission plan comes from Gunny Iceworm and it will be the 2nd Trivia Mission to date. The 1st Trivia OP was hosted by Lt Jg Mik Mo and the Seekers Squadron.

All that participated had a great time and I hope there will be more members taking part of this one. I know real life is more important, but if you have the time join in on the fun you will be glad you did!!!
