23 years of S3s 1998-2021

The Squad Select Series is a player organized event in WarBirds that simulates the large-scale battles fought between opposing Air Forces during The Second World War. Fast and furious since 1998 the S3s are the oldest and longest running online multi-player event with detailed planning and intense periods of combat. Everything is based upon the squad, flying realistically and playing with honor. Players have thousands of hours of online combat and are some of the most experienced and deadly virtual pilots out there. Awards and cumulative scoring allow each player to track their career and squad exploits over the years.

For those individuals wanting more than a silly furball at a thousand feet join the S3s and fly a combat mission in WW2. Login to the S3 Arena on game day and our helpful squads will get you organized to fly. New pilots may also register on our forum posting your name here so our squads can approach you with recruitment offers.
