RAAF Callsigns

Hello,
Just a couple of questions regarding the RAAF callsigns for formation or multi/aircraft fligts.
As far as I know:
Single aircraft: CALLSIGN/No. e.g. MAPL241
Multi aircraft: Single aircraft rootword/formation rootword e.g MAPL HEYE

My question is, what would the callsigns be for each aircraft in the formation, would they contain a number? Or would the formation rootword change per aircraft in the ship?
Any answer is appreiciated.

You hear the individual call signs when they do a frequency transfer. For example if the were told “hipshot hoodoo contact centre 122.6”

It would go:

Maple Hoodoo push 122.6

The on the new frequency you would get:

”hipshot 1”
”2”
”3”

”Brisbane centre hipshot hoodoo”

You mean hipshot Hoodoo??

The on the new frequency you would get:

”hipshot 1”
”2”
”3”
You mean "Hoodoo 1"??

For the OP, Unless things have changed, the formation callsign would be Maple Hoodoo, and each aircraft would be Hoodoo 1, Hoodoo 2 and so on.

BTW, Hipshot and Hoodoo and subs of Maple.

Musta changed, it would have been:
"Hipshot check'
"Hipshot 2"
"3"
"4"

Ascend Charlie is correct...
As Hipshot 2, Ia8825's check-in would get a mention in the de-brief...
