Is this some form of in game verbal comm? If so what sort of equipment would one need to set it up?

you just need a mic so you can talk, thats it,
and of course you need a server to join, but i dont know if you can join some open chat thing, me and my squad share F16's TS server

The only thing u need to buy Is a headset with a microphone. A cheap one works but may not be comfortable.
Its easier to use than a loose mic.

The other thing is to download the TeamSpeak client software (free)
and set it up.
Some Dogfight servers provide info on how to set it up and also the adress to their TS server.
The best thing is to use a key for "press to talk" instead of having it voice activated. This way other unnessesary sounds wont bleed through.

There is also a small utillity called TSd = teamspeak displayer (also free) wich shows the name of the person talking in a small window so u know who's talking when there is several players on a TS server.
a link to the TS displayer:

If you need some more info just ask, or check the forums on TS site. I posted a couple of useful stickies overthere.

I really like to see these questions. It means that there is new blood entering into the sim world, and in this case, the flight sim world. Very cool!

Yes, you can use TS to communicate with others that are also using TS. Some servers, like WarClouds, run their own TS server. So you can connect and speak to other Axis/Allies on your team you choose. Makes for great cooperation and you can really kick **** when working together.
