History of the C-Hawks
The 364th C-HAWKS Fighter Group
The Early Days
Between 1991-92 two online gamers, jhffo and erik^ talked in a chat room in the game Air Warrior about creating a squad. The lack of an organized group was noted when players were not communicating or working together to have fun in AW. The squad they planned to create would incorporate the concepts of teamwork, camaraderie, and fun. It was not long before players from the many different arenas in AW were looking to join the <C-HAWKS>. It was almost a decade that the <C- HAWKS> set the standards for the bombing and capturing airfields. The <C-HAWKS> were always ranked in the top 5 for squads in bombing, which was feat in and of itself.
As Air Warrior was purchased by Electronic Arts and then shortly shut down the members went through a hard time with no gaming community to identify with. This was a hard time for the <C-HAWKS> and many wondered if they would be saying goodbye for good, but that never happened. The old adage held true that "Once a <C-HAWK> always a <C-HAWK>!" Squad members, or by this time friends, still talked online, on the phone or through the e-mails. It wasn't long until the <C-HAWKS> branched out into different online games, but kept their philosophical roots that the <C-HAWKS> were based upon.
Return of the C-Hawks
The two prominent online games that the old members went to were the Aces High and World War II Online. Goose created the <C HAWKS> squad in Aces High for many old Aw players that joined and continues to carry on the concepts of a good air squadron that was once a dominating force in Air Warrior. Sortie, also known as 6kill from his AW days, joined World War II Online and started to carry on the <C HAWKS> tradition there. It wasn't long before jhffo, putty and the many old timers from the AW days joined. Sortie, on the day he joined WWIIOL, went from being laughed at as a one man squad to leading one of the most organized groups in the game. Many players in WWIIOL rallied around the old concepts of teamwork, camaraderie and fun in order to have a good time in the game.
Today the <C-HAWKS> have been established as a respected member of the Aces High community. The old <C-HAWKS> ideology of good teamwork, camaraderie and fun had spread! People knew they could join up with any <C-HAWKS> operation and have a good time online.
Over the years, many have rallied around the <C-HAWKS> name. In the past it was just a name for a group of players to identify themselves with, but over the many years the name changed to define the things its members believed in. Consequently, the name <C-HAWKS> is defined by the concepts of teamwork, camaraderie and fun. To call oneself a <C-HAWK> is embody and believe in those three principle concepts.
