With the reorganization and addition of new Australian Bases, Tatooine's Rancor Squadron was all but unrecognizable after all the pilot transfers were complete.

As a result Rancor Squadron has been DECOMMISSIONED, and a new group of pilots have assumed air cover duties as DROP BEAR SQUADRON.

Congratulations Pilots!

Awesome stuff. Smile

...Am I the only one who imagines a patch with a bear floating down on a parachute? Laughing

Drop Bears are a ( supposedly ) mythical Australian creature akin to either savage Kolas or Ewoks on steroids - razor sharp claws and teeth (you get the idea) and an attitude to match Shocked . They wait in tall trees in the forest and wait for their prey - usually lost tourists Surprised - to walk past under them then drop on them hence the term drop bears.

Thanks to the entire Tatooine Base for their input and comments. We started with 16 names to choose from and whittled it down to one.

It is now time to rebuild our squadron as many of our fellow pilots have gone to other bases in this wide brown land we call Australia.

Looking forward to bagging some TIEs!!

That's even better. Ewoks with parachutes! Cool

SideNote ---> Hey NassikDabak (Shawn) - see you've got a pilot & RLSC sigbar there but I don't see a pilot costume on your Profile and your username's not listed on the RLSC Detachment Roster.

Do we need to do some admin upkeep or has your costume been not submitted yet?

The costume simply needs submitting. It's complete but I've bought a new comm pad to replace the one I've got. Once it's delivered (In January, I suspect) I'll take the appropriate photos and submit the costume pictures. I haven't taken the photos yet simply because I want everything to be perfect.

For now, I'm simply displaying my pilot pride. Smile
