ShackFleet members can choose to fill one of three available wings, based on the old Shack adage of Lamp, Sand, Lime.
The Lamp wing is for logistical pilots, handling internal transport for crew members without combat ships, refueling, and acquiring goods. "Think of Lamp Squad as supply lines in modern military terms," ejectorpod said. "Without Lamp, we could find ourselves out of fuel, out of ammo, and up to our necks in enemy without any way of defending ourselves."
The Sand wing is the fleet's primary source of revenue outside of combat operations, made up of miners, refiners, and explorers. "Sand Squad will be a mix of folks, because it will be a lot of people who just want to search out the best asteroid to carve up as well folks who simply have a fast ship with a low signature and want to explore the galaxy," ejectorpod explained. "Sand members will be our discoverers, providing intel on new systems and routes through space, as well as sources of revenue for us to exploit."
For those more interested in fighting, the Lime wing will fit their needs. Should ShackFleet decide to act aggressively, the Lime Squad will act as the front line. They'll also act as protection against hostile fleets and as support for Lamp Squad, whenever they need assistance for getting supplies to the front lines.
