Thank you DD_Crash for taking the time to message me over in the IL-2 forums when I said I was looking for a squad.
I'm a 35 year old man living on the border of London/Kent with my girlfriend and our idiotic but loveable greyhound. I work in the defence and intelligence industry on the technology side of things running a small team of fellow nerds. I love planes, submarines, ships, tanks etc (though not, I should say, a fan of how they are usually used!).
I've been a fan of flight and flying since I was born (or shortly thereafter - mum can't confirm the exact time + date), and I've been using simulation games (apologies if the word game is banned, if so let me know and I promise to never use it again!) since I was 10 years old with with Microsoft Flight Simulator 95. Since then I have progressed in knowledge but not skill. Generally my multiplayer side of things has been with Vatsim and Pilotedge on the civilian side of things, but I've been flying IL-2 on the Finnish server and realised how fun cooperation is. I'm also a huge fan of DCS, but right now IL-2 is where I'm spending most of my time right now as I work my way through an iron man campaign in the 109.
I own the DCS Normandy map, WW2 Asset Pack, P51, Spitfire and 109K4 but absolutely open to buying other maps / modules as required. I own all of the IL-2 content excluding the Normandy expansion (which I'll buy once the map is out), and the tank content. If you are all happy to have me and use the tank content, I'll happily also purchase that.
Hobbies include Brazilian Jiu Jits, kickboxing, reading mainly modern history/warfare/economics and flight sims. Odd mix but it seems to work for me!
I would like to think I'm an easy going bloke, open to constructive feedback (also keen to learn) and respectful of differing opinions. Keen to find a mature group of people who are more about simulating things / cooperation as opposed to air quake (but also open to the odd session of air quake too!).
Would also love to have a few people willing to run a PWCG coop campaign with too - and your flight nights look ideal.
Look forward to hearing from you,
