A list of words you might want to know that are related to the RP.
The Hive: A species of hostile aliens that closely resemble wasps and spiders.
GSFS: This stands for Galactic Space Force Ship.
GSF: Obviously, Galactic Space Force.
Space Superiority Fighter: This is the same as Air Superiority fighters. They are designed to dominate the void.
Multi-role: This is exactly as it sounds. The ship can play the role of either a fighter, or a bomber.
Bomber: The ONLY player controlled craft capable of destroying a destroyer class ship and above.
Squad/Squadron: Generally, a squadron is a band of pilots that fly similar aircraft. They're like a wolf pack, basically. Given, not everyone gets along, but, on missions, everyone is watching your back, and you watching theres.
Laser turret: Weakest gun, limited to bombers and capital ship NPC's. 6 shots per 1.5 seconds.
Ion cannon: The third strongest gun, and equipped to all fighters. Fires a blue beam, 4 shots per second.
Particle gun: Second strongest gun, equipped to most craft. Fires a small orange ball, limit 2 shots per second.
Beam Pulse gun: Strongest gun available, unique to the heavy bomber. Fires a massive ball of purple light, limit 1 shot per 2 seconds.
Afterburner Slide: The most effective manevour for space combat. Since space has no air resistance, you will slide when you turn, depending on your speed, it can be a small amount, or a large amount. This manevour is preformed by engaging after burners for a second, then yanking the stick to either the left or right, taking yourself off of afterburners. The result will either put you out of firing range, or to the side of the enemy ship.
MIA: Stands for Missing in Action. Generally, it means the person they're looking for is nowhere to be found, and generally, he is dead, they just can't find the body. There are soldiers from World War II that are still today recorded as MIA. For pilots, MIA can be taken as a captured pilot.
KIA: Killed in Action. As simple as it sounds, if this is your status, you're dead. Sorry, there is no respawn button for your character here.
Carrier Group: A group of ships with a carrier in the center of it all. The carrier is all that matters, everything else is expendable. In this RP, there are 4 frigates, 3 destroyers, 2 cruisers, and a carrier for a carrier group.
*Flag Code* Wing: Really, this will only be important in carrier strikes and whatnot. This is assigned (by me), to a group of spacecraft. Generally, a Wing is made from anywhere from 2 spacecraft, to about 6 in this RP. If your in a wing and the Flight Leader you're under calls you to form up, you better form up. An example: You are apart of Alpha Wing, the flight leader of Alpha Wing says group up. Everyone under Alpha wing should group up. If you are in Bravo Squad, and the Flight Leader of Alpha Wing says form up, you don't have to do anything.
Form up: If this is said during Flight by either the Flight Leader, or acting Flight Leader (in case the real Flight Leader was shot down,) everyone under their wing forms up.
Break and Attack: Short for 'Break formation and engage the enemy'. If this is ordered by the Flight Leader, or acting Flight Leader, you are weapons free.
Status Report: Report your ships current status to everyone in the wing. Generally it is asked by the Flight Leader, or acting Flight Leader after a conflict. Don't respond if you're floating out in space due to ejection.
Air Frame: External hull plating and internal beam structure of an aircraft (or in this case, a spacecraft.)
