Use this frequency for traffic calls and coordinating with ATC for airfield operation. Their airspace extend 15nm from your departure or arrival airfield and extends up to 10,000ft.
Callsign (+ Num. Wingmen), Location, Altitude
Things you need to call ATC for:
- Taxi instructions. Initial departure vector and altitude
- Regular Traffic calls about position and movement
- Switch to another channel upon departing airspace
This frequency is for coordinating mission operations, A2A GCI and flight following of transiting flights.
Airspace is 10,000ft and up. It’s used for coordinating the mission amongst flights in the air, kind of the equivalent of you Center controller in civilian world. This is also the A2A GCI coordinating frequency which makes it quite busy therefor here is the list of communication that you are expected to perform on this frequency and no more:
Callsign, Location, Altitude
Callsign, Location, Recovery Airbase/Request
- Check in and out for in-flight mission tasking after you are off ATC’s hands, for both A2A and A2G
- A2G flights will be provided flight following service and guidance towards their tasked AO / mission. Declare calls will be answered based on GCI availability. A2G calls are lower priority
- A2A flights will be provided GCI instructions as well as picture and bogey dope
- A2A flights and pilots need to call their shot on this frequency to avoid inter-flight mishaps “Gryphon 1-1, Fox 1”, “Gryphon 1-2, merging with Bandit at Bulls 25/134”
- Any mandatory information about what you are doing that needs to be communicated to avoid wasting ordinance / unnecessary focus of multiple elements onto the same Bandits
A2G Common / JTAC:
This is the channel used for coordinating A2G weapon delivery, mission execution and JTAC operations. This frequency is used only by A2G flights.
Tune to this frequency when arriving in the AO and instructed by MCCOM or ATC and use it for the following items:
- All weapon employment calls. Rifle, Magnum, Pickle, Wire, etc…
- JTAC coordination calls. IP Inbound, Visual Target Identification
- Laser firing and code synchronisation between flights. Flight level and orbit assignments.
ATC / MCCOM GCI / A2G JTAC always have the final say and you are expected to comply with any instructions received, regardless if they break the aforementioned guidelines above.
