July 2021: Sow Medals Investiture for June 2021

SQUADRON AWARDS/ CITATIONS

Since January 2021, virtual squadrons are recognised as a “unit” for contributions over a longer period (each half year). This recognition comes in the form of “unit citations” which all pilots within that squadron will wear on their uniforms, as long as they remain a member of that squadron. New pilots who join a squadron will also be able to share in past glories by also wearing the unit citation on their pilot page.

The Unit Citation is a yellow ribbon, as shown below, “pips” are added for squadrons which receive the ribbon more than once, 1 pip for each subsequent award.

1st unit citation
2nd unit citation

The award process for unit citations is as follows:

  • Each year is divided into 12 monthly campaigns.
  • In any given campaign, a squad is regarded as having made a “significant contribution” if:
    1. Two ore more pilots with their unit tags flew
    2. pilots with unit tags collectively logged 10+ flight hours
  • Unit citations are awarded every half-year (Jan-Jun and Jul-Dec)
  • If a squad makes 5+ significant contributions in the given half-year, it gets a unit citation
  • A unit citation is displayed as an extra ribbon on member pilots’ records
  • The unit citation belongs to the squad, not the pilots. Thus:
    1. new pilots joining that squad, will receive its past citation ribbon
    2. pilots leaving the squad will lose the unit citation ribbon

These Squadrons/ Groups have been given Unit Citations for the period January to June 2021:

PILOT AWARDS

The following pilots have received the below awards for their performance in June 2021.

26 Ribbons of each type were awarded for the month (based on the number of players who managed 10+ hours flying on the server). See HERE for a more detailed explanation. The ribbons will automatically show on your pilot profile on the SoW stats pages as soon as you start accumulating stats for July.

Pilots who are receiving a second award of this ribbon (i.e. they also won this ribbon last year) will receive a “pip” to their existing ribbon.
