"Looking good, Mage Squadron. Keep up that pressure."
Knocker during Operation Dual Wielder

Mage Squadron, officially the 508th Tactical Fighter Squadron, was a unit part of the International Union Peacekeeping Force.[1] The squadron saw deployment in the Lighthouse War.

History

On May 15, 2019, the Kingdom of Erusea declared war on the Osean Federation and attacked the country's bases all over Usea, including Fort Grays. Mage Squadron was scrambled with other allied squadrons to repel the Erusean air raid.[2]

The squadron also took part in halting the Erusean advance at the Scofields Plateau. During the operation, Erusean forces deployed multiple MQ-99s to engage the Osean aircraft, however, they were shot down by Golem and Mage Squadrons.[3]

On May 30, 2019, Mage Squadron took part in Operation Dual Wielder, where its objective was to help secure air superiority in the airspace over the Chopinburg Rainforest. The mission was almost a success, however, Erusea deployed an Arsenal Bird to quickly regain control of the region.[4]

The last known sortie the squadron was involved in was Operation Lighthouse Keeper, where Osean forces had to infiltrate the city of Selatapura and rescue the Osean ex-president Vincent Harling from the Erusean-controlled International Space Elevator. The operation failed when Harling's transport helicopter was shot down and exploded, killing the ex-president. Trigger was blamed for killing the president, and was later court-martialed and sent to a penal air unit, Spare Squadron.[5]

Trivia

  • The squadron's tail code "FG" identifies and corresponds to its home base at Fort Grays.
