CONTACTS

Southeast Attack Squadron (SAS)
a Radio Controlled Model Warship Combat Club
Below you will find links to website of our various chapters and members, as well as links to commercial sites our members commonly obtain parts for our combat boats.
CLUB SITES
International Radio Controlled Warship Combat Club (IR/CWCC)
For over 20 years, the IR/CWCC has been dedicated to the battling of radio-controlled 1/144 scale warships. Each ship is equipped with one or more BB cannons which are capable of putting a small hole through an opponent's hull which is built out of 1/32" balsa wood. If too much damage is taken, or an equipment failure occurs, the ship will sink.
Atlanta RC Battle boats
The local Atlanta chapter of our captains. They have a pretty regular group that has monthly battles in Atlanta (mostly cruiser) and who also travel to Statesboro for the Fall and Spring Regional battles.
Great Lakes Attack Squadron (GLAS)
Welcome to Michigan's captains' website. Our group is filled with camaraderie and a desire to help new members. After all, then we get to shoot at you!" - Will Cover
Nevada Combat Ships
New website for the Nevada (and Northern California) region. Be forewarned, the desert does strange things to the minds of Nevada Captains. - Brandon Smith

R/C Warship Combat
"An interesting site: Nick (the site owner) is trying to help the global combat model ship hobby by making an informational site with lots of FAQs, forums, info, and links to all the other clubs (grouped by region to help new prospective captains find local contacts). A very slick layout and well done."

SpudWerks Shipyard
Many new captains want to get onto the water quick (and perhaps build their own ship for their second ship, while they have one running to play with). A couple of our southeastern captains have bonded together to creat "SpudsWerks Shipyard" and build ships, including specific ships to-order, to help new captains get into our hobby (and these guys just love building ships). You can also often meet them to talk about a ship in-person at SAS battles.
