Back in 2003 a couple of guys got in their mind to create a virtual squadron for the game, Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator II, which was played in the Microsoft Gaming Zone. Many air battles were fought. Squads came and went, but CFS II was a great time for all and the Mercs were ever present. Eventually the group migrated to IL-2 Sturmovik 1946 and the Hyperlobby.It appears that we may stay with Il-2 1946 to the end. A major achievement for the squadron was when we won the United Squadrons League championship in 2010. It was an incredible team effort and I still look back at it in wonder.

The Mercs have always strived to keep it fun and treat others with respect.
