Emulator Squadron Maintenance

The primary purpose of a squadron is to control the general types of planes assigned to the Air Force’s smallest unit, and to link planes to a group’s base information.

Name: Scrolling through the list of names will open the unit history for the listed squadron. Other than adding a new squadron, name cannot be modified.

Commander: A change of command may be performed by choosing another commander from the list.

Group: The group the squadron is assigned to. The squadron may be transferred by choosing another group from the list.

Bomber Type: All planes in a squadron must be of the same basic type: Either B-17s, B-24s or Avro Lancasters, though the specific model does not matter. It cannot be modified.

Unit History: Lists the units sorties, kills, casualties and awards. It cannot be modified.

Default: Indicates that the squadron is a default unit. Default squadrons cannot be deleted. The default squadrons are:

  • 324th Bomb Squadron: The default B-17 squadron. The 324th was home to the Memphis Belle.
  • 741st Bomb Squadron: The default B-24 squadron. The 741st was home to the Dakota Queen.
  • No 419 Squadron: The default Avro Lancaster squadron. No 419 was home to KB726.


  1. To add a squadron, overwrite the current squadron’s name, then select commander, group and bomber type, then click the Add button.
  2. The squadron’s commander and group may be updated.
  3. A squadron can not be deleted if it has assigned bombers. Each bomber must be deleted or assigned to a different squadron before the squadron may be deleted. Deleting a squadron does not affect a group’s unit history. Default squadrons can not be deleted.
  4. No restriction, other than common sense, is placed on what ranks may hold what command billets. Likewise on the number of groups or squadrons an airman may command.
