Indy's GZG Universe-specific Fighter Squadrons

This table has only begun. But it contains over 200 fighter squadrons, mostly NAC, and now New Israel. The ship assignments correspond with the Unofficial GZG Fleet Rosters I have been working on (when and where applicable; these does not include the NI fleet roster; see also Noam Izenberg for that).

¹ - This is the standard, default configuration for the squadron. Configurations can change between games/scenarios (except that a 'standard' level fighter squadron cannot become a 'heavy' fighter squadron and vice versa). If a squadron is 'heavy' to begin with, it will usually be a 'standard' heavy fighter, but could also be a heavy interceptor, heavy attack, or heavy torpedo fighter (fighters are fairly modular in design; you just have to pay the point costs for reconfigurations :).

² - Squadrons do sometimes get reassigned to other carriers/motherships, unless special circumstances allow for a squadron to remain with it's carrier or mothership (e.g., the Hammer's Slammers squadron is assigned on a semi-permenant basis to the SDN Vinson Massif as long as Admiral Shane 'Hammer' Valens commands her).

³ - 20% chance any of these squadrons could have been 'upgraded' to 'heavy fighters', unless otherwise specified (for the UN the upgrade is going to be 30%). Also 16% chance (1 in 6) to have an Ace in the squadron, unless otherwise specified.

This table now includes Noam Izenberg's New Israeli fighters. the NI legend is as follows:

Ashan (smoke) = stealth attack fighter
Chermesh (scythe) = stealth interceptor
Bard'las (panther) = heavy fighter
Notzah (quill) = standard fighter
