"We Set The Standards"
Carrier Air Wing Eight (CVW-8), known as "Team Factory", was first established on the 7th of April 2015 operating on Digital Combat Simulator (DCS) later in 2016. We simulate the real United States Navy Carrier Air Wing Eight currently based at Naval Air Station Oceana, Virginia Beach, VA. The air wing is attached and operates aboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71).
A Carrier Air Wing (abbreviated CVW) is an operational naval aviation organization based off the 2005-2006 CVW8. We are composed of several aircraft squadrons and detachments of various types of fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft. Organized, equipped and trained to conduct modern US Navy carrier air operations while embarked aboard aircraft carriers, the various squadrons in an air wing have different, complementary (and sometimes overlapping) missions, and provide most of the striking power and electronic warfare capabilities of a carrier battle group (CVBG). While the CVBG term is still used by other nations, the CVBG in US parlance is now known as a carrier strike group (CSG).
Carrier Air Wing Eight is currently compromised of 6 Squadrons
Fighter Squadron 31 (**VF-31)
Fighter Squadron 213 (**VF-213)
Strike Fighter Squadron 15 (VFA-15)
Strike Fighter Squadron 87 (VFA-87)
