  • Close Air Support (CAS)

    Standard Operating Procedures

    Karmakut Liberation

    SECTION 1: Purpose of CAS

    1. Purpose of Air CAS :
      • Air CAS are designated under callsign Demon and Reaper.
      • Demon is authorized to operate the following assets:
        • AH-6M Little Bird
        • AH-1Z Viper
        • AH-64D Apache (Including FCR variant)
      • Reaper is authorized to operate the following assets:
        • A-10C Thunderbolt II
        • F-35A/B Lightning II
      • Demon and Reaper will operate under direction of JFO as at all times when available.
        • When less than 50 players are online:
          • In absence of JFO, Platoon Leaders may also direct CAS elements.

    SECTION 2: Close Air Support SOPs

    1. Use of Air CAS Aircraft:
      • All aircraft will remain within the map boundaries and protect airframes by remaining over friendly territory while not on mission.
      • Air CAS must monitor Long Range Tactical Air Direction (TAD) net 080.000 and Short Range 070.000.
        • All fire missions will be coordinated through Platoon TAD net 081.000, 082.000.
      • Aircraft with a dedicated Weapons Officer seat, require an active Pilot and Weapons Officer.
      • In the event of a shootdown, Search And Rescue (SAR) net 039.000 is to be used to coordinate rescue efforts.
      • Pilots, JFO, and Platoon Leaders are responsible for minimizing collateral damage to Civilian infrastructure.
      • All HE fire missions within 200m of Civilian infrastructure or friendly positions require authorization from Platoon leader.
        • The following are considered HE armaments (non-exhaustive): M151 Pods, APKWS, DAGR, GAU-8, M230 Autocannon, AGM-114K/N, AGM-65EL
      • For non-HE fire missions, danger-close approval is NOT required from Platoon Leader provided that BLUFOR and Civilian persons are at least 100m away from targeted area.
        • The following are considered valid non-HE armaments: M134, GAU-19
      • The Pilot of the aircraft has the final say in aircraft deployment and safety. Neither the Platoon Leader nor JFO can order a Pilot to risk their aircraft to danger if the pilot deems it not safe for the airframe or their life.
      • The Pilot of the aircraft is responsible for coordinating with Ogre to repair any damage that occurs to an aircraft while in use. This shall be done in a safe manner. A damaged aircraft shall be towed to the nearest repair option and not operated until the damage is repaired and the aircraft is safe for operation.
      • It is HIGHLY suggested to run supply logistics (either via Ogre or Stalker), especially for any assets lost in the field.

    SECTION 3: Calls for support

    1. Communication
      • When receiving a CAS mission from Platoon JFO, expect the following radio etiquette:
        • Location of target (Grid reference, map markers)
        • Target type (be as specific as possible)
        • Munitions type
        • Distances to nearest friendlies or civilian targets
        • Readback for Confirmation

    SECTION 4: CAS Disclaimers

    1. Disclaimer:
      • Air CAS roles are permission-based and must be applied for.
        • All CAS perms holders must also apply for Rotary Logistics perms and be comfortable using those assets.
      • 2 strikes equals a loss of Air Asset permissions. {you may later reapply again for reinstating of permissions at the review of Community Staff}
      • Any player can refuse an order given if it will cause them to break SOPs. (if this scenario occurs remind the parties involved of the SOP in a peaceful manner. If needed reach out to an admin to help mediate)
      • This server is an infantry-first combined arms experience, all Assets are in support of the infantry experience.
      • Assassin Squad Leader may do Call For Fire missions under these conditions:
        • In the absence of Platoon JFO and must have a slotted Platoon Leader (no exceptions).
        • Squad leader gets Call for Fire mission approved by Platoon leader (full detail) and then may switch to proper TAD net to task Demon, Reaper, and Savage.
