Osean War (1905–1910)
The Osean War began in 1905 and lasted until 1910. During the war, the Belkan military was the first force to utilize aircraft in warfare, creating the Belkan Air Force. These attacks proved devastating to the Oseans, who soon after also began using warplanes.
As the war progressed, Belka developed more advanced aircraft with the purpose of maintaining air superiority. Due to their increased industrial strength, Belka was able to produce more aircraft at a rapid rate. It is currently unknown which country won the war.
Rectan Conflict (1973)
In the 1970s, pro-democratic riots took place in Recta, ultimately resulting in Belkan military intervention. During the war, the Rectan and Belkan air forces saw multiple engagements. resulting in many Belkan casualties. Eventually, the war reached a stalemate.

The Belkan Air Force, unfamiliar to such resistance, suffered heavy losses early in the war. The two forces soon became stalemated, both on the ground and in the air.
