    Hi all. I saw illo's thread about 1life sq. rules, and i see something about formation, and talks about a rotte. Somebody told me once how were distributed squadrons (schwarms i can remember only, but i don't know how many planes it has :shuffle: ).
    Can somebody tell me about it? I will print it and never ask it again, i promise :) Thx in advance

    P.D: any other info about old airshows will be gratefully received

    This is as far as I know, but it's also as far as we'll use :)

    Rotte is the basic unit, it's a pair. Every rotte is independent unit. A Schwarm is made of 2 rottes, usually one patroling ahead and the other giving cover hi and behind.
