The 66th Air Force Unit, also known as the Galm Team, is a mercenary fighter squadron assigned to the Ustio Air Force.
HistoryThe Galm Team are a Mercenary Unit hired by Ustio and attached to the 6th Air Division. In the open days of the Belkan War, Ustio lost 70% of their Air Forces and needed to find replacements quickly. The use of "Unofficial Assets" became valid and the Galm Team was hired. Since then, they've become one of the most famous units in the war and have become known by their Allies and their enemies. They are supported by AWACS Eagle Eye and are deployed from Valais Air Base.
During one encounter with the feared Schwarze Wing they were called "The Mercenary Dream Team". The name stuck with them.
The Galm Team had participated in every major battle that the Allied Forces had undertaken, during the Belkan War. Cipher and Pixy had gained much recognition from their Allies for their amazing feats of skill and from their enemies in many ways. Some of it respect, fear or hatred.
Pixy and Cipher had shot down three Belkan Ace Squadrons and supported multiple pivotal battles. Such as Glatisant, Directus, and at the Schayne Plains. During the attack on the Excalibur in North Belka, Cipher and Pixy had inflicted much of the damage upon Excalibur and destroyed it. The Galm Team had also had much experience fighting over Airspace B7R, said to be the highest area of danger during the Belkan War. Galm Team were one of the known fighter teams to ever penetrate the B7R's defenses.At the end of the war, the Galm Team consisted only of Cipher, when Pixy disappeared after the nuclear explosions and later joined "A World With No Boundaries" for his own reasons. Patrick James Beckett (Crow Three), the only remaining member of the 4th AFU Crow, had been supporting the Galm Team since the attack on the Excalibur and when his team was lost during the confusion on June 6, he began operating with Galm One, becoming his new wingman.
As "A World With No Boundaries" had become a threat, PJ and Cipher had engaged them destroying their XB-0 Hresvelgr, two of their Ace Squadrons and destroyed the V2 being deployed at the Avalon Dam. There at Avalon Pixy had reappeared in the ADFX-02 Morgan and challenged Galm One. Pixy was shot down by the end of the battle and Cipher's new wingman, PJ, was presumed killed by Pixy.
"The Demon Lord". The leader of the 66th AFU of the Ustian 6th Air Division. A feared Ace, who trailed across the skies, bringing doom and destruction. One could say he is like the Razgriz, bringing death upon the land,( the first part of the war). Then he enters sleep, during the "6 Months Of Void"", then comes back as a hero defeating Pixy and his V2 from destroying the world. Little is known about him or where he went after the Belkan War. (player's character).

Galm Two Replacement (Crow 3)
Name: Patrick James Beckett
- "I like to play polo, you know, the game with horses"
- ― Patrick James Beckett
Although a capable pilot, he appears to be young and slightly naive often stating that he is "fighting to stop the fighting." He apparently traveled across the Osean continent by motorcycle, after he finished High School. He also had a relationship with a woman at Valais Air Base and commonly was heckled by Crow One and Two throughout the war.
‘PJ’ is a pilot that flies for Valais Air Base's Crow Team . He flies an F-16C Fighting Falcon with a white crow with its wings in a heart shape painted on its right side. PJ flies with Galm One, when Pixy is not part of the unit.
At the end of the war PJ's F-16C is heavily damaged and loses control. Official sources have confirmed that PJ was killed by Pixy, and this is supported in the final scene, where a bouquet of flowers was shown to be laid next to a destroyed plane wing near Avalon Dam. If looked at closely, the Crow team insignia can be seen on the wreckage.
- Galm is a translation error of the name Garmr. Garmr is a powerful demon hound in Norse mythology that guards Hell. There is a red dog on the Galm emblem. This further emphasizes the connection between Garmr and Cipher. In Ragnarok, the Viking apocalypse, Garmr and Tyr battle, resulting in Tyr's death. Pixy is Tyr and Cipher is Garmr.
- The full name of the Galm Team is 6th Air Division, 66th Air Force Unit, which includes the number "666", the Number of the Beast in Christianity. This is complementary to the title "The Demon Lord of the Round Table".
