Task Force Jobs

SCUL missions are a bit of a miracle, and in order to perform that miracle a lot of teamwork is required. SCUL has devised a system to distribute the workload called Task Force.


The Mission Leader

Before a mission can happen, there must be someone who conceives and defines the mission. This is the first role to be taken on.

The Deck Officer

A deck officer is the second task force job that needs to be volunteered for, as they are the ones who encourage others to take on the rest of the roles.

All Jobs are Required

There's no task force job that is optional on an official SCUL mission, therefore the smaller the mission, the more roles each pilot must play. Fortunately the smaller the mission, the less responsibility each role requires.
