I'm not Bearcat, but this might help you:

"The first classes of Tuskegee airmen were trained to be fighter pilots for the famous 99th Fighter Squadron, slated for combat duty in North Africa. Additional pilots were assigned to the 332d Fighter Group which flew combat along with the 99th Squadron from bases in Italy".

They were the 332nd FG, which comprised of the 99th, 100th, 301st and 302nd Fighter squadrons. They were the only all African American fighter group and served with excellent distinction, the largest factor being they never lost a bomber to enemy aircraft in their charge. Sadly the country for which they fought so bravely for, was fighting them and did everything possible to make sure they did not achieve any noteriety. Such as sending pilots home before they could become "aces", and dis-allowing kills for those who did. They had the poorest support from their country, but that only made them fight harder. Truer hero's could never be found.

You mean in the sim or in the comunity? In the community the 99th is the only squad represented so far. In the sim the 332nd FG is also recognized, each squadron, the 99th,100th,301st,& 302nd For more info go to the site link in my sig or click on the picture. There are other Tuskegee Airmen groups in the sim community but we are the only one here.
