The Espada Squadron was tasked with escorting the organization's main transport/mobile HQ, [[XB-0 Hresvelgr]]. The Hresvelgr was not originally owned by "A World With No Boundaries", nor was it made for them. It was taken by them after the organization gained information on its location. Its location was believed to be given away by the founder of the group [[Anton "Dr." Kupchenko]], but this has not been confirmed.

History

Like multiple units from Yuktobania, Belka, Ustio and Osea, the Espada Squadron had disappeared from the frontlines of the Belkan War. When they later resurfaced, it was confirmed that they had joined the organization "A World With No Boundaries" for their own personal reasons.

The Espada Squadron was engaged by the Ustian 6th Air Division's 66th Air Force Unit "Galm", after the XB-0 attacked the 'South Belkan' city of Lumen and later, Valais Air Base. As the Hresvelgr flew North, past Steir Castle in Belka, presumably going towards Avalon Dam, the Galm Team appeared on the battlefield. The Espada engaged the Galm Team, but was shot down within the first stage of the battle. Later, the XB-0 was brought down as well.

Marcela Vasquez

Marcela Vasquez, second wing of the 11th TFS Espada. Rumored to have a deep relationship with former flight commander Alberto Lopez. Followed him through his desertion to A World With No Boundaries.

Trivia

  • The word 'Espada' translates to 'Sword' in English. In Spanish bullfighting, matadors will use a sword to deliver the killing blow to the bull, and the Espada Team's emblem features a bull impaled by several swords.
  • In the reveal trailer, Espada was supposed to only use the J35J Drakens, aside from Espada 1 using the Draken and Espada 2 using the Rafale M.
