Aleksei Cheshenko had mastered the failings of every major enemy air force and this provided him with a very versatile skillset in combat situations.
Estovakian Civil War
Him and Ilya Pasternak shared a continually fuelled rivalry. However, despite this, Cheshenko held great respect for Pasternak's skills as a pilot and flew as his right-hand man during the civil war.
After Operation Free Gracemeria, him along with the surviving Strigon members retreated back to Estovakia where they worked with Gustav Dvornik to bring his Chandelier operation to fruition. The Strigon survivors would be temporarily stationed at the Chandelier.
On April 1, 2016, the Republic of Emmeria Air Force launched their attack on the Chandelier. Aleksei Cheshenko would lead one of the two Chandelier Defense Team squads as a four-man formation, the other squad being led by Yaroslav Deryagin. In the end, the Chandelier Defensive Operation proved unsuccessful and the weapon fell that day resulting in an Emmerian victory to the war.
- Aleksei Cheshenko is the second pilot to sport the callsign Strigon 2 during the Emmeria-Estovakia War, the first being Darijo Kovac.
