"Fight on and fly on to the last drop of blood and the last drop of fuel, to the last beat of the heart."PREAMBLE:
— Baron Manfred von Richthofen.
Trying to restart this game after it fell out of interest back in 2010, trying to see if we can have another go at it.
IF YOU HAVE A QUESTION OR ARE UNCLEAR ON SOMETHING PLEASE TELL ME SO I CAN HELPWARNING AND RULES:
This is an Roleplay based heavily on the Ace Combat video game series. BOTH MALES AND FEMALES ARE WELCOME.
There are no other species besides humans, Romance is not only permitted, but encouraged. As is rivalry, which is ripe between pilots. NO PRIOR KNOWLEDGE OF THE SERIES IS NEEDED TO PLAY. Will only use basic framing of the background with the premise of the story. Meaning the posts that the character makes will be all new and original content, not tied to the game series storyline.
BASICS OF THE STORY:
Concept Idea: The basis of the story I am going for is the story of one squadron of fighter pilots and the ordeals and stress that they have to go through during a sudden and fierce war. I will be playing both the Squadron Commander (A Lieutenant Colonel) and as the general moderator, giving out the storyline as it advances and the enemies as well. I think of it as a Band of Brothers theme. You will be a part of the 1st Foreign Fighter Squadron of the Osean Air-force. The "Razgriz", a famous name that gained its infamy during the Circum-Pacific War. As such this squadron only takes the best of best pilots from around the world.

EDUCATION ON ACE COMBAT:
Ace Combat takes place on a alternate Earth. The differences are: Different Continents, Nations, Major Events. Similarities include: Same Ideas, and technology, (I.E.: AK-47, M1A1 Abrams Main Battle Tank, F-22 Raptor.)

BACK STORY OF MAJOR EVENTS:
(You do not have to know every part, but a basic knowledge of the most recent events ((I.E last 20 years)) would be helpful to give your character some back history)
1939-45NATIONS AND ALLIANCES:
Belka enters war with nations around it and manages to secure lands outside of it's southern borders. This area is known as "South Belka". After this Belka becomes a threat throughout the Osean Continent.
Belka promotes expansionism in order to gain more lands for it’s people. Also, during this time they regroup their Air Force. Belka begins annexing Eastern Countries, while fighting along it’s own borders in the West.
Sometime during the 1970s Yuktobania and Osea enter a "Cold War". The two super powers cease all relations and communications, while attempting to build up their industrial strength; they jocky for the postition as the leading super power on the planet. States of Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD) to Countervailing Strategies were reached.
As Belka's operations take it's troops into different countries. Their efforts Belka gain even more land outside of it's borders. Soon, nations surrounding Belka are occupied by the Belkan Military.
The Osean-Yuktobanian Cold War is in full effect. The arms race between the two nations begins to elevate, causing Yuktobania to push forward in weapons development and Osea to develop their Self Defense Initiative (SDI) Program. Decades later, these SDI Programs produce Yuktobania's Scinfaxi-class Submarines and Osea's Arkbird Space Plane.
The Belkan Military now sets it’s sights on Neighboring Recta (The Rectan War). Initally, the Belkan Military, mostly the Air Force was being pushed back by the smaller, but more experienced Rectan Air Force. The Belkan Air Force dispatches it's best pilots to combat them, the Belkan Air Force's 126th Tactical Fighter Squadron 'Silber'. They turn the tide of the war; most noticeably at Mt. Mainz where they claimed Air Superiority, allowing Belkan Troops to take Calle City where the Rectan Liberation Front encamped. The Belkan Military then had little problems with the Rectan Forces and continued their expansion. Belka now gained land in the Recta.
An unknown group of fighters fly over the Crescence Islands. The fighters were intercepted immediately by the, now famous 126th Tactical Fighter Squadron. The unknown fighters are quickly destroyed. Judging from the location the fighters appeared it is speculated that they may have come from Wellow or Osea. The incident, later known as the "Ware Incident" is investigated, but provides no answers.
The Tyumen Dispute
Yuktobania's Southern Border breaks out in conflict against The Republic of Kaluga, known then as the Tyumen Dispute.
The era of federalism with the Principality of Belka being the leader. As the military budget began to increase, political authority was delegated to the Eastern countries. As a result, the troops stationed in those areas returned to Belka.
The State of North-East Belka declares independence and chooses their capital to be Mons. This territory later becomes known as the FATO Nations.
Yuktobania launches an operation against Coup de'tat Forces led by the Heum Administration in the Republic of Romny. More Information on: Yuktobanian Border Disputes
The Belkan government begins a Federal Law Review, in light of recent economic and social instabilities within their country. Following this, two eastern territories were granted permission to secede, in hopes revitalizing Belka's economy.
On May 12th, The Republic of Ustio is formed out of South-East Belka; however, this did not help Belka's economy.
The Osean Federation announces their "Rearmarment Declaration of 1990". This bolstered the power and numbers of the Osean Military as a whole.
The Belkan Federation sold its remaining lands to the eastern neighboring countries of Sapin, Ustio, Gebet and the FATO Nations, on August 29th, 1991. Simultaneously, the economy began to take a downturn and the number of the unemployed increased. Belka decided to cede its northern and southern part of the Great Lakes to Osea for the purpose of revitalizing the economy. The lines were drawn between Belka and the two eastern independent countries according to each race.
The Belkan government enters a state of unrest. During this time the public calls for order to be restored. Amidst the chaos, the extreme right-wing party of Belka takes power on December 12th, 1991.
Four days after the Facists take power in Belka, Recta and Gebet are formed with the new land gathered from the Belkan Federation. Ratio also gains more lands across it's Western Border. Ustio gains the resource rich B7R reigon
On Sepetember 2nd, a Yuktobanian Article is published and tells of a new Super-Ship, known officially as the Scinfaxi-Class Submarine. Though still in development it was hailed as the "Battleship of the new age". The current Osean Minister of Foregin Affairs had ted that the ships were similar to that of the Dragonet-class Nuclear Submarines which were in possession of the FCU on the Usean Continent. Questions were raised about this finding.
An asteroid, first labeled '1994XFO4', and later renamed 'Ulysses', was discovered approaching the Earth's atmosphere, by the International Union of Astronomists (IUA). The Usean government calls for the world's nations to meet on the subject. During the conference the FCU, IUA and NMD Agencies (National Missile Defense) meet and begin to prepare plans to destroy the Ulysses.
The Belkan War
Belka invades the nations surrounding it and begins the Belkan War. The war engulfs the planet. The Belkan Forces quickly gain an upper-hand by occupying it's enemy's territories in Osea, Sapin and Ustio. Nearly all of Ustio is lost to the Belkan Military, but a large scale counter-offensive lead by the Osean Federation and hired Mercenaries, which reformed the Ustian Air Force, pushed the Belkan Military out of Ustio. The offensive then lead to the invasion of South Belka, until North Belka used Nuclear Weapons on June 6th, 1995 to halt the Allied Advance. This caused Osea and the Allied Nations to sign a Peace Treaty with Belka and ended the Belkan War days later.
Belka enters a state of isolation in order to stabilize their country economically, financially, militarily and in their state of government.
After the battle at Hoffnung the Allied Forces acquire the ADFX-01/02 Morgan from the South-Belkan Munitions Plant.
Across the Ocean, far away from the Belkan War, on the Usean Continent; the Usean Government decides to make Stonehenge, a Super Weapon capable of destroying asteroid fragments even in space. Construction begins immediately. Many FCU member states and Usean allied nations participate in it's construction. Stonehenge is to be created within San Salvacion, a nation which is neutral among the Usean Continent.
Belka's new government signs a treaty with the Allied Forces. Osea and Yuktobania provide the Southern Countries with support to rebuild after the Belkan War. Belka begins it's road to recovery and goes into a period of reform. As a show of "good will" between Osea and Belka, the Osean Military incorporates a an entire fighter squadron, comprised of Belkan Aces from the last war.
"The Falcons of Dawn" are formed and begin Terrorist operations against the Osean Federation.
Surviving Members of "A World With No Boundaries" plan to assassinate the Osean President. However a member in their ranks informs the Osean Authorities and after a engagement, all but their Leader, is killed by Osean Special Forces.
The Belkan 'Raid Party' is dismantled.
On the Usean Continent, hostilities begin to rise between forces from Erusea and FCU Troops. The FCU Troops are ordered to pull out of the Republic of Amber and the Independent State of Ugellas in order to avoid conflict.
FCU Military announces that Commander Robert Taylor will become Chief of Staff. Due to the unexpected death of Michael Riass in June of this year, Taylor was chosen quickly and took office. The Rocket Launch Facility in the Comona Islands is named after the deceased Michael Riass. From now on it is known as the "Riass Space Center".
In mid-1998 a Rebel Force arises in Usea, and begins to attack and occupy Usean cities and bases. Due to the Usean Government's situation with the Ulysses approaching, they were not able to fully act against the threat. The Usean Government dispatches the Scar Face Task Force (STFS) to counterattack the Rebellious military forces to stop the coupe de'tat which may over throw a nations government, in it's extremely fragile state. The STFS attack the rebelling military and save the Country’s current government. Fighting took place all across the Usean Continent; mostly in states which were also taking part in the construction of Stonehenge. The Rebel forces were also attacked by these states and the combined forces were able to defeat the Rebelling Forces.
The XFA-27 and ADF-01 are first deployed in combat, during the Usean Rebellion. They are the first Super Aircraft in Ace Combat History. The XFA-27 later becomes the the first Super-Aircraft to shoot down another Super Aircraft, the ADF-01.
The Ulysses fragments as it passes the Roche Limit and rain down upon the planet. The Usean Continent takes the brunt of the impact. The Anean Continent also experiances heavy damage; especially within the country known as Estovakia.
Admist economic turmoil in Belka, the new political party takes control, calling itself the National Socialist Belkan Worker's Party. or just simply, the NSBWP. A highly charismatic new Supreme Chancellor is elected by an overwhelming popular vote, over 80%.
The Usean Refugee Dispute occurs during this time and results in Erusea's new hostility towards nations on the Usean Continent. This event begins in the year 2000 and lasts until 2003.
The Euro-Asian Public Network is established. This is a Usea Government operated broadcast system, allowing announcements to be made across the entire continent.
The Belkan's Economic crisis seems to have been vanquished.
The Usean Contienental War
The Erusean Military suddenly puts Stonehenge under it's authority and occupies the Stonehenge Electromagnetic Launcher Facility in San Salvacion around August 22nd. All communications with personnel in the facility are lost. During the raid of the facility, one of the guns recieved a direct bomb hit and was rendered useless.
The Usean Treaty Organization withdraws support of Erusea as a whole. The FCU calls for the return of Stonehenge, it's hostages and the immediate removal of all Erusean Forces from San Salvacion. This was to be met by September 14th of 2003.
FCU President Robert Sinclair announces that the 11 nations which made up a Continental-National Economic Alliance were to disband their current alliance and join with the FCU to form the Independent State Allied Forces (ISAF). The ISAF later gained five more nations and became an alliance of 16 nations. This coalition force declared itself to be a defensive group; of course this was argued due to the Erusean threat.
The Erusean Military suddenly attacks the newly formed Independent State Allied Forces on all fronts, across the Usean Continent. The ISAF is caught of guard by this sudden offensive. With lack of air support, due to Erusea's sudden use of Stonhenge as a continental ranged anti-aircraft weapon, the ISAF is pushed east, across the continent until they are out of Stonehenge's range on the continent's east-coast. With Los Canas overrun, ISAF GHQ was relocated on the nearby island nation of North Point.
The new and Charismatic Supreme Chancellor of Belka restores the faltering economy.
The Erusean Military begins to be pushed back by a sudden surge of ISAF Force, on the eastern-coastline. The ISAF manage to destroy multiple vital facilities and establish a foothold on the Usean Continent. Erusea throws it's entire force at the ISAF, who advance across the entire continent, but to no avail. The ISAF liberate much of their lost territory, destroying Stonehenge in the process and regain full air operations across the continent. Soon, all occupied Usean Territory is freed and Erusea itself is invaded. The Erusean Capital city was sieged in mid-2005 by the main ISAF Force, but this did not end the war completely. The remaining Erusean Officers fled to Megalith, a newly built superweapon and attempted to continue the fight from there. Megalith and the survivors are destroyed in a daring ISAF raid and the war officially ends.
Near the end of the Continental War the ISAF had stumbled across Erusean Facilities and captured an experimental aircraft made by the EASA. It was officially known as the X-02, but named the "Swtichblade" by ISAF Pilots. It is said to have seen action near the end of the war, when it was piloted by ISAF Ace Mobius One.
The National Socialist Belkan Worker's PArty has completley renamed the nation of Belka, christening it, "Nation der Leute von Belka", the People's Nation of Belka.
A Documentary by Osean Broadcast Company Reptorter named: Brett Thompson is aired on international television. It is called: "Warriors and The Belkan War". He interviewed the Top Ace Pilots of the Belkan War and their experiences in battle from 1995 in order to find out the truth behind the Belkan War and the accomplishments of a Mercenary known as "Demon Lord". It was a large success.
The Belkan Terrorist Group "The Falcons of Dawn" have been confirmed to be responsible for seven terrorist attacks against the Osean Federation.
After the end of the Usean Continental War and with Stonehenge's destruction, Osea uses it's Arkbird to destroy any Ulysses Fragments which threatened the planet. With the unexpected help of Yuktobania's Anti-Space Debris Hyper Laser, the Arkbird was successful in removing 80% of any Ulysses Fragments which came into earth's vacinity. Usea and Verusea also supported this new space program, whole heartedly. This step worsened relations between Yuktobania and Osea, for the Yuktobanians, unable to use their long range ballistic missles to assist, felt they were being down-trodded.
It has been one year since the Erusean war. Erusea’s Government is under reform by the governments of the ISAF. However, some of Erusea’s military do not approve of this forced reform and rise up to attack the ISAF, once again. The 'Free Erusean' military has a munitions factory at their disposal .A single aircraft, along with the support of a single AWACS are dispatched by ISAF HQ. The ace pilot Mobius 1 is selected alone for this mission. The Erusean threat is neutralized. The Erusean government reform proceeded smoothly and hostilities have ceased on the Usean continent for now.
Belka starts a complete reinstitution of its Armed Forces, forming the new Belkan Streitkräfte, their new Army, Belkan Nationale Sozialistische Marine, their new Navy, and the Reformiert Belkan Luftwaffe, the new and reformed Airforce. Not only did the reform the armed forces, but they reequiped them, with the best Grunder Industries had to offer.
The "Arkbird Declaration". This event is a unified attempt to bring peace to the world by sweeping out any major issues that were on the planet. The Summit is held aboard the Arkbird, the Osean Space Plane, which was built as a result of the "Cold War" between Yuktobania and Osea. This summit included the nations of Verusea, Yuktobania, Osea, Central Usea, Nordland and Anea (believed to be all nations of Anea). Erusea was also invited and after discussions, came to the meeting. This meeting raised tensions between Yuktobania and Osea, Erusea and the ISAF, but solved the Usean Refugee problem.
Belka and Eurusea discuss entering a Millitary alliance.
Belka annexes the Namenlos peninsula from the nation of Fato.
Yuktobania suddenly declares open war on Osea and attacks all Osean Facilities on their Western Coast. The attack suprises the Oseans. The Oseans attempt to reform their military, but are in too much disarray to launch a large attack. A group of pilots, stationed at Sand Island manage to change the tide of the war and the Osean Military goes on the offensive. The war eventually spreads to the Yuktobanian continent, as casualties mount. Soon each side vows that they will never surrender, until they have defeated their enemy. A hatred forms as innocent civilians are killed on each side. The Osean Military presses forward on the Yuktobanian Continent, taking heavy casualties from the Yuktobanian Military. The Group of pilots from Sand Island are then found to be spies and are killed as they attempted to escape. However, this was a plan made by ex-Belkan operatives within each military, attempting to make Osea and Yuktobania pay for the events which happened in 1995. The Sand Island pilots return as the "Demons of Razgriz" and unveil the truth behind the Circum-Pacific War. A combined Osean-Yuktobanian Force attacks the Belkan "Falcons of Dawn" in Sudentor; their goal: to destroy completely destroy the Belkan Forces. In the end, after two pivotal battles, the "Falcons of Dawn" are defeated and the Circum-Pacific War comes to a close.
A top secret Aircraft known as the ADF-01F is completed. This aircraft, known as the "Falken" uses TLS technology seen on the ADFX Morgan models. It also uses a prototype 360 degree digital screen system.
Sapinish Civil War
The Sapinish Civil War was a major conflict in Sapin that started after an attempted coup d'état committed by parts of the army against the government of the Sapinish Kingdom. The Civil War devastated Spain from July 17, 2011 to April 1, 2013. The supporters of the Kingdom, or Royalists, gained the support of the Yuktobanians and ISAF, while the followers of the First Rebellion, nacionales (English-language literature as "nationalists" or "socialists"), received the support of major Central powers, namely Eurusea, and Belka. This war helps test out all four nation's millitary hardware.
The usual Cold-War between the nations of Osea and Yuktobania picks up, and as tensions grow, the idea of another war between the two is not a far flung idea.
An Osean peace convention is held with countries around the world. President Harling of Osea makes an announcement stating that the events during the Circum-Pacific war would be released in 2020.
Sapinish Civil War ends with the nationalists as the victor.
Belka and Yuktobania have peace talks, and have discussed entering an Alliance.
Belka signs a treaty of Alliance between the Nation of Sapin and Belka.
A story about the now world famous "Demons of Razgriz" is released in Osea.
A statement was released by the Belkan Supreme Chancellor stating that they would never, even assume to declare war on the nations of Osea, Ustio, Recta, Gebet, Fato, or Ratio.
Belka, Eursea, and Yuktobania sign a Co-Belligerence Treaty.
Increased Belkan Activity on the FATO Nation's and Osea's Borders is noted.
Osea and the FATO nations enter a state of heightened alert while talks of a treaty between the two and the ISAF are taking place.
Repeated infringments on Osean Air-Space by Belkan military aircraft occurs without hostile action.
