The Coastal Patrol has organized a squadron to fight the Claw called Echo Squadron. The squadron will bear the markings of the CP but will actually be volunteers sworn into service.
“It’s a motley group for sure,” said the Acting Admiral of Coastal Patrol. “But since when was any of the Waterbank Self Defense Forces anything but motley?”
Echo Squadron has already signed on a few pilots who will fly ZSK P-40Es from strategic airports.
“They’re cheaper to keep than jets” the Admiral explained, “and do the job well. All of Echo Squadron uses bio fuels too.”
