"ONE OF THE OLDEST IF NOT ALREADY THE OLDEST ORGANIZATION FOR BATTLESTAR GALACTICA"

"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."

" JOIN THE FIGHT! JOIN THE FLEET IS FAMILY INITIATIVE - BATTLESTARARCHIVE- BATTLESTARWIKI- SPACEPARENTS- GALACTIKFRAK- BFC/RAVEN" IN SUPPORT OF MICHAEL HOGAN RECOVERY. MICHAEL HOGAN IS BETTER KNOWN IN THE BSG RDM WORLD AS THE HEADSTRONG, GALACTICA XO COLONEL SAUL TIGH!! "

While I have been watching the Old Series and seeing a lot of combat scenes within the fleet. This is the kind of fighting that the Minotaur Squadron should specialize in. 

One of the things that I would like to have all members discuss and at length. One thing that I want to see is to have this discussion, turn into a Manual that I will submit to Admiral Rivera as part of the SOP for this squadron. 

I would like to discuss tactics on how both Vipers and Raptors can use cover such as asteroids or ships in order to ambush the enemy fighters. 

First tactic I have in mind is a chase tactic. Basically it implies that a Fighter is being chased into an asteroid field or inside the fleet, the wing man of the fighter in question slides up next to the body in question and using communications with the chased fighter, execute a dive, a snap roll into an inverted climb. The result will be the fighter craft be on the enemy six, underneath and able to get a solid firing solution at excellent range. The pilot has options at this point. He can level off and continue with standard fighter protocol or he can immediately take the shot and get the bandit off the chase fighters tail.

Thoughts, Questions, Discussion I welcome it.

The second idea I have come up with is that of the true ambush. Once Raven CIC, with the help of the Seekers, gets a long range Draidus contact, the Minotaur deploys out and finds cover in the nearby asteroid field latching on asteroids and having the Raven move to have the forward engagement dealt with inside the asteroid field. Sending out a chase fighter, to meet up with the inbound raiders. Have those raiders "chase" the Viper into the asteroid field and from there the rest of the squadron jumps on the inbound Raiders from every angle.

No angle is too steep to take a shot. Our Convergence Range is going to be 300 meters. This close combat style is consistent with the ambush tactics, we employ.
