Hammerhead Squadron, officially the 35th Bomber Squadron is a bomber squadron part of the Republic of Emmeria Air Force.[2] The squadron is led by Wayne O'Neill and utilized the B-52H Stratofortress during the Emmeria-Estovakia War.


During the war, Hammerhead Squadron was deployed on multiple strategic bombing operations across the Anean continent.[3]

One such operation was during the San Loma Assault, where they were tasked with bombing Estovakian anti-air installations defending San Loma. Later in the operation, they moved to destroy enemy emplacements stationed at Cavallia Air Force Base.[1]

They were later deployed to the Moloch Desert where their objective was to bomb Estovakian radar stations and the Estovakian HQ.[4]

On April 1, 2016, during the assault on the Chandelier, the bomber unit was deployed to the Razgriz Straits to assist Emmerian Air Force aircraft in bombing the weapon. However, by the time they arrived, Talisman had already flown into the Chandelier's barrel and destroyed the railgun.[5]



  • In-game menus in Ace Combat 6 call the squadron "bomber unit Hammerhead". It can be assumed that the squadron is canonically called "Bomber Unit Hammerhead" due to the naming of another Emmerian bomber squadron, Bomber Unit Stork. Acepedia calls the unit "Hammerhead Squadron" due to a community consensus.
