Overview

Vanguard's Fleet is the shield against loss of ship, asset, and life, and the sword to destroy and undermine those who would do us harm. Our official motto: Semper Fortis, always strong, resilient, ready to hold the line, and strike against threats decisively.

The Fleet is, by its nature, a massively multidisciplinary group. While Security will serve as its small-ship and fighter crews, and a core part of the Navy, our Capital crews will be Joint-Wing operated. We bring together the very best Vanguard has to offer, keeping the skies clear and our enemies at bay.


Mission

 

Vanguard First and Foremost

We are charged with the security and protection of the entire organization. Any hostile action against a fellow org mate should be felt as an affront. We must prevent it at all costs, and dole out quick retribution when we cannot.

Proactive and Decisive action

It is our mandate to identify and engage targets long before they can strike at our members.

 
 

Readiness and Professionalism

A delay in action can lead to ruin. Members of the Fleet Group should maintain their equipment and vessels so that they can respond at a moment’s notice when they’re in the ‘verse.

Humility, Respect, and Cooperation

Always respect our org members, whether they’re embedded in our operations as intel or transport specialists, or being protected.

 

Divisions

 

Fleet is divided into three subgroups, each with their own expertise. A Fleet Member’s placement in a subgroup reflects their desire to focus on a specific discipline. While members will often be called to fill different roles across the Fleet, Security, or the organization at large, the following subgroups are dedicated to the mastery of their respective interests.

Requirements

 

Training and Education

Fleet members should work to improve their skills through both independent and group training. They should also keep themselves apprised of Star Citizen development and mechanics relevant to their roles, and the current game meta.

Organization Membership Restrictions

You may not be a member of any external mercenary or paramilitary organizations, as the potential conflict of interest is too great.

 

Equipment Ready

All members of the Fleet should be prepared. This means maintaining their ships, and keeping personal weaponry and uniform at the ready. During boarding actions, or if you need to eject from a damaged vessel, you must be prepared to defend yourself until you can be returned to the operational unit. Ships may be personally owned, or else allocated from the Vanguard Hangar.


Organizational Command Structure

The following is a list of Command positions within the Fleet and expected minimum rank held for the role.

 

Fleet Group Captain ⟪✦✦✦⟫

The Group Captain is in charge of fighter squadron and naval deployments and logistical coordination, and handles requisition and attachment requests from other groups, escalating them as needed to the Security Wing Leader. They are also the Commander of the standing defense unit.

Commander, Aerospace Group ⟪✦✦⟫

The CAG assists the Fleet Group Captain as XO. They are also in charge of the development of the Aerospace group, and assist the Group Captain in managing long term Aerospace deployments.

Squadron Leaders ⟪✦⟫  

Squadron Leaders for are responsible for filling duty rosters, and working with their Ship Captains and Fighter Lance Leaders to outfit, resupply, and repair all vessels owned or operated by security.

Lance Leaders =\∶/=

Lance Leaders will lead groups of pilots and gunners. Whether one fighter pilot in a group of twelve, or the Captain of a small capital vessel, their focus will be to train their claws to work together, and to make sure any needs are communicated upwards.

Claw Leaders =\·/=

Claw Leaders are part of a four person group, and should focus on building team camaraderie and expertise, and the growth of each individual within their claw. Although they command the smallest unit in the fleet, their role is one of the most important.

 

Operational COMMAND STRUCTURE


Operational Units are semi-transient structures. We will always have a standing Defense Unit, mobile and in close proximity to the hub of our organizational activity, but task forces will often be formed with a particular mission in mind. Additionally, the exact composition and personnel in a given force will change depending on member availability and changing mission parameters. However, the command structure will remain intact.

 

Aerospace & Support Commands

Squadron Leader

For sufficiently large groups, Squadron Leaders coordinate multiple lances of fighters, bombers, and frontline support vehicles.

Lance Leader

Lance Leaders are the commanding officer for a group of multiple claws of fighters, bombers, or frontline support vehicles.

Claw Leader

Claw Leaders are the commanding officer for a single group of fighters, bombers, or frontline support vehicles.

Navy & Support Divisions

Fleet Command Officer

Fleet COs are the appointed head of all Fleet ships within a task force. They are responsible for coordinating all ships, either directly or through their Wing and Group Leaders.

Group Leader

For sufficiently large operational units, Group Leaders coordinate groups of ships with the same mission profile.

Ship Captain

The Captain is responsible for coordinating the crew of their entire ship. Ship Captain is a long-term assignment, and during force formation, ship crews will be kept intact unless member availability prohibits it. If multiple crews need to be combined to manage a larger ship, the command structure will be determined during force formation.

Ship Officer

Officers are in charge of several crew with the same responsibilities.
