User:MyNamesFurii has been working diligently to improve the wiki's AC6 articles and images, but he's run into a problem regarding the squadron names. After discussing it with me over Discord DMs, we've decided to pose this question to the community at large because there doesn't seem to be an obvious answer.
What do we call the Emmerian squadrons that aren't Garuda Team?
Numerous editors over the past years have assigned the squadron leader's callsign to their entire squadron. For example, Freddie Durand, callsign Avalanche, is the flight lead of the Emmerian Navy 2nd Carrier Air Wing 2nd Strike Fighter Squadron. Past Acepedia users and admins have referred to the squadron as "Avalanche Squadron" or "2nd Strike Fighter 'Avalance' Squadron".
The immediate instinct is to follow the game. Thing is, there is no mention of the specific squadrons in the AC6 in-game dialogue at all. The pause menus further complicate the issue because they refer to these squadrons as generic "air units". As in the above example, during The Liberation of Gracemeria, Operation F in the pause menu says "Assist the Avalanche air unit in destroying enemy jamming facilities."
So... what do we do?
- Name the pages Avalanche Squadron, Windhover Squadron, Stingray Squadron, Sky Kid Squadron, etc...
- Name the pages 2nd Strike Fighter Squadron, 15th Fighter Squadron, 5th Fighter Squadron, 4th Fighter Squadron, etc...
- Some other option? Some combination of the two?
