I just finished watching the trailer for AC0 and I found something about the "Knights of the round table" along the trailer. I was just wondering who these aces are and what their titles and Knights are supposed to be...
Not just simply pilots. The Knights are Aces who flew in the Round Table repeatedly and survived. Because dead men's words hold no meaning. And an airliner pilot who flew through B7R doesn't count as a Knight of Round Table.
The characters you've seen in the trailer are the aces that you can fight in the game. They're some of those who are called the Knights. Any ace, regardless of his nationality, that shows acknowledgeable prowess in B7R would be called a Knight.

Haha, so true.
Also thanks guys.
On another note though, that should mean Cipher, Pixy, and PJ were knights too.. cool..
According to the article, it has seen battles, but unclear which factions did the battle. Was it just the air forces of Belka or any past militaries that were present around Belka. In my understanding, it was always Belkan until they lost it in the Belkan War. I'm not sure if the area is even suitable for land battles. Wasn't B7R made of mountains that circle a desert area?
So in the history section, it says that during its history Area B7R "has been the sight of many conflicts over its strategic location and valuable resources." So I always just assumed this went back to medieval times. This may be talking about something more recent but I wouldn't think so since they would of had fighter aircraft in more recent times and fighters can't really extract resources.
Area B7R, Belka, AKA "Belkan Priority One Strategic Airspace B7R", AKA "The Round Table", has been historically a stomping ground for pilots to hone their skills with each other and fight in all-out combat with less care for the rules of engagement. Since aircraft were first used for warfare in 1905, and since Belka was the pioneer of that, one can therefore make the assumption that Area B7R has seen tons of conflicts over the 90-year period between 1905 and 1995.
Yes, Area B7R's nickname, "The Round Table", is based off of the Round Table from Arthurian legend. From Wikipedia: "As its name suggests, it has no head, implying that everyone who sits there has equal status." This is where B7R's idea of 'every pilot is on equal footing' comes from.
The Knights of the Round Table were King Arthur's Knights that sat with him at said table. Similarly, Area B7R's "Knights of the Round Table" could be used to refer to any pilot that stepped foot into Area B7R and saw combat there, though it's mostly used for the ace pilots and squadrons.
We don't know anything about Area B7R prior to 1995, so we have no idea what anyone was fighting for besides fame and glory. We definitely don't know if anyone in medieval times fought in the area.
