Vaslav Reynek, callsign Dama, was an ace pilot of the Estovakian Navy's 2nd Carrier Air Wing, 2nd Squadron. He primarily flew the F/A-18F Super Hornet.[2]

Dama played an active role in countless anti-ship, anti-ground, and patrol operations. He and his co-pilot were referred to as a "winning combination" as they set the standard for two-seat aircraft performance. He often boasted that he was never hit by enemy fire.[2]

Dama is one of the named aces hidden in Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation. He appears during "Gracemeria Patrol" on Expert difficulty or higher, and the player will unlock his livery for the F/A-18F upon shooting him down.


"Dama" has different meanings depending on the language. It typically refers to the queen chess piece or to the game of checkers. This mirrors a line uttered by an Estovakian pilot during the start of the mission: "Checkmate, Emmeria."[3]


Reynek was deployed to the frontlines Emmeria-Estovakia War since its onset. In September 2015, he took part in the Doypalm Bay Offensive, where he played a key part in securing the city of San Loma, alongside the P-1112 Aigaion and Strigon Team.[2]

In the waning days of the war, he was tasked with reporting the damage that the Chandelier's cruise missiles caused to Gracemeria. Prior to the operation, however, he had an argument with his co-pilot about the use of the Chandelier against Emmeria, resulting in him going on sortie by himself; this was the first time Reynek flew without his co-pilot.[2] As a result, Garuda Team were able to shoot him down during the cruise missile attack.[3]
