"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."

JULY 1, 2020 - 20th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION AT ALL-CON DALLAS 2020

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. 

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

Attention Gun Crews!
Part two of the Raven's Gun Crews Detachment seals.

Detachment Psi is to be refitted with TOS internal systems and ordnance from the First Cylon War. It is time to get some veterans on board to blow Cylons out of the sky! 
Good Hunting!

Part three of the Raven's Gun Crews Detachment seals.

Colonial Fleet is not merely a regular military organisation - it represents the excellence and combined strength of the Twelve Tribes of Kobol - twelve civilisations steeled in battles over centuries of intercolonial warfare. 

These worlds will not easily fall
So Say We All!

Great Work Alexander!!

Awesome!

Nice artwork Alexander.

Attention, All Personnel!

If there is one thing common to all projects in the universe, it has to be the inevitable lack of time. I believe most people will easily understand how easy it is to start ambitious projects, only to get side-tracked by new opportunities, duties, and ideas. 
Since the founding of the Battlestar Gun Crews Group over two years ago, this certainly has happened to me a number of times. In this time, I've picked up new projects in the Fan Club and elsewhere, and the Battlestar Gunnery Project has fallen behind. 

This is about to change! 
With the second Raven Adventures Operation finally beginning its penultimate battle and the end of this anniversary year coming up, the Battlestar Gun Crews Group will start its activity again. 

For the immediate future, I have three types of regular content planned:


1. Battlestar Gunnery Operations reports - illustrated short reports on the ongoing war of Battlestar Raven against the Cylon threat. These will be little war-stories focused on the capital ship combat the Raven endures on her mission to protect the survivors of the Fall. 


2. Colonial Codex Entries - In an effort to uphold the effectiveness of the Colonial Fleet, the Gun-Crews are committed to compiling a comprehensive database of all Colonial weaponry and Ordinance at Raven's disposal. These will be illustrated by schematic images of Gun Batteries, Weapon's systems, and more. 


3. Bombshell Canteen reports - short story-blips from the Gunnery Canteen to lend the Battlestar Gun Crews a bit of character on a personal level! 

I hope these new updates will be of some interest to the Raven Battle Group and enrich the experience of all members. 
Of course, new members to the Battlestar Gun Crews are always welcome, and everybody is invited to participate and create their own works related to the Battlestar Gun Crews! 

Battlestar Gun Crews FDC, out!
So Say We All! 

Battlestar Raven Gun Crews FDC Report #2019_11_1

Attention all Raven Gun Crews!

Following the reinstatement of the Raven's Battery Detachments to active duty, the Fire Direction Centers of all detachments will submit reports of daily duties, training exercises and combat operations.
Detailed reports on the status of individual detachments and batteries will follow as they come in.

This week, the first report premiers with a shot taken from Raven's secondary portside flak battery detachments during active combat operations against a Cylon vanguard force during the Battle of Aerilon, Helios Delta.

Our pilots, marines and escort crews rely on the protection of Raven's heavy guns, and there's nothing quite so satisfying as seeing those toasters sent to the Tartaros by a good beating flak and shrapnel.

So Say We All!

AHEM! So, you think the Gun and Missile Batteries on the Trireme and the United Kobol are chopped liver,Alexander?

Certainly not! But who knows, maybe the gunners of the fleet should have some friendly competition during future exercises, just to make sure they stay on top of their game!

Battlestar Raven Gun Crews FDC Report #2019_11_2

Ever since the devastating strike of the Cylon against the twelve Colonies, there is little time to spare for anyone aboard the Battlestar Raven.
For weeks after the attack, the Gun Crews were kept at constant readiness, prepared for an attack at any time. Damages to the KEW batteries had to be repaired, munitions made ready and the armory restored. With the supply depots and anchorages of the Colonial Fleet effectively gone, the Raven must rely on its own facilities and that of the fleet to provide the mighty warship with the weapons and ammunition it needs. 

For this reason, the Gun Crews quickly began a recruitment campaign throughout the civilian fleet. Workers are needed to set up a new munitions factory aboard the Battlestar, and the diminished crew of the warship will need capable new hands on deck for maintenance of the weapons.
No single soldier, weapon or ship will win this war. To prevail against the Cylon, all must work together! 

Not A bad Idea
