hi, i am at work so i can not give the exact text but i am flying as german (fw 190-a4) in the original game. could someone explain the list of names when i press the TAB key and select the option to issue a command to the other planes. i think one is "Rotten...something-or-other?"
many thanks.

Rotte - pair of planes, ie. leader and his wingman
Rottenflieger - (your) wingman
Schwarm - two pairs, ie. 4 planes (lol, this kinda sounds like I would teach poker, which I couldn`t)
Staffel - Squadron. 12 planes, made up of 3 Schwarms, with 2 Rottes in each Schwarm.

thanks for the reply.
when using qmb, am i right in thinking that i am the leader?
if i create, say me plus an other fighter and 4 bombers, the fighter will be my wingman, right and the bombers their own flight?
