Personally led by Anton "The Guardian" Kupchenko, Gault Team was primarily composed of pilots who had background with technology, particularly in military and aerospace engineering.

History

At some point in January of 1995, Gault Team was sent to the front-lines with their commander Anton Kupchenko in hopes of helping the Belkan Federation expand their territory. However, Gault Team would suddenly disappear 2 months later in March 1995. Due to their sudden, unexplained disappearance, the elite squadron would be deemed casualties of war by official records.

In late December 1995, six months after the official end of the Belkan War, Gault Team would reemerge, alive and well, at B7R, also known as "The Round Table", where they intercepted the legendary 66th Air Force Unit "Galm". During the engagement, Kupchenko revealed his true intentions: as the lead designer of Project Pendragon prior to the war, he formed the insurgent organization A World With No Boundaries in an attempt to "cleanse" the planet of its "superficial" national borders, and to do so, conspired to launch the V-2 Mass Retaliation Weapon in order to level all of the world's most important cities, doing so with the help of the "Sleeping King at Avalon".

Despite being outnumbered 8:2, Galm Team managed to shoot down and defeat Gault Team in an intense dogfight. Most of Gault's members were killed in action, squadron leader Anton Kupchenko included, although three members survived, namely Griswold Veiser, Andrew Barry, and Lorenz Riedel-- Gault 3, 4 and 7 respectively.
