The Albatross was part of an international force guarding the International Space Elevator. The carrier was in Gandar Bay when Erusea attacked and seized the ISEV. Though one of the few ships to escape the attack, it lost all of its aircraft. The carrier would later rendezvous with Osean Air Defense Force fighters to launch Operation Dual Wielder.
*In the E3 Demo, the carrier Albatross was erroneously referred to as the Vulture, a possible reference to the OFS Vulture.
