What about a standard wing tag for our pilot names?  

I notice that BtRL doesn't accept anything but an alphabet letter for the first character of a pilot name, so anything like 58-, [58], -58-, etc that you might think of using is out.  

For the moment I've set up as AW58-Backlash, (for 'Air Wing 58').

I agree that a standard tag such as backlash's "AW58" would make it easier to identify fellow squad members and find each other easier.

done and done. And I noticed the communication thread. Have we decided on a form of voice communication. From personal experience, Ventrilo is an excellent program. Don't know about the others.

A general rule of thumb, as stated about servers... if you are hosting for the 58th, like I sometimes do... look for a 58th White Knights Insert Server Name here

That's how I tag my servers, and I'm generally chatting, so a sound off works just as well.

V for Viper. Afterall, we are the 58th Viper Air Wing, despite what the banner in the top left corner says...someone should really change that...

sorry for asking a stupid question, but is it viper air wing or viper air group?
