It's High Command is the Oberkommando der Luftwaffe

The Aircraft used by the Airforce are listed below.


Apollo-16 AAS (Advanced Aeronautics Systems)
The Apollo-16 AAS is a single-seat, single-engine, all-weather, multirole combat aircraft, designed for air-supremacy and ground-attack missions. It is built by Kronos Industries. It is currently the primary fighter jet of the airforce.

The Apollo-16 is armed with a four-barreled 30mm HAR-14 cannon, a Gatling-type rotary cannon, two near-wingtip pylons for the SAA-4C Airglider short-range air-to-air missiles and various weapons. The Apollo has a 1.2-inch armor, the Apollo is strangely fast with 1.50 machs/ speed of sound (1227 mph). The Apollo-16 also has an E-11X Aviation Helmet, a helmet equipped with Active Matrix Liquid Crystal Display, Sensor fusion, binocular 42 by degree field of view, an integrated day and night camera and is Ejection Safe to 570 knots equivalent airspeed.

G-L9 Casper Stealth Bomber
The G-L9 is a single-seat, heavy strategic bomber used for various special operations and missions, featuring low observable stealth technology designed for penetrating dense anti-aircraft defenses. It can deploy the large Type-300 thermonuclear bombs, it was created when the MAP Program was passed and legislated, it uses 1-inch armor, one operator of Casper Bombers once said: "Its cockpit is much more comfortable than my bed". Only 12 Casper Bombers are made.

IE-86 Strategic Nuclear-Capable Bomber
The IE-86 Strategic Bombers are Karatol-Advenran strategic bombers, 800 bombers were ordered from Karatol-Advenra. It used "New Yushiko 10 Engines" to support its speed. It holds 100 "Tracer bullets" and it can carry 31,000 pounds of bombs. Like the IE-85s ,(A predecessor of the I-86), It has flares to avoid missiles or SAM batteries.

Hermes Fighter Jet
The Hermes Fighter Jets are fast, durable, fighter jets. It is known as the "Younger Brother of the Apollo-16" since it is a smaller version of the Apollo-16, it is faster than the Apollo. It still had a light-weight 1.2-inch armor with 1.5 mach/ speed of sound (1150 mph). Like the Apollo, it uses the E-11X helmet for the pilots, the weapon used is the 25mm HAR-10 cannon. These planes are used for hit-and-run and ground-attack missions.

Locksley GM
The Locksley GM is a stealth, multirole fighter jet, used in special operations. Equipped with The CZ-7 tracker missiles, which are long-range missiles used for taking out enemy aircraft, it is invisible to radar and sonar detection. Even though it is a fighter jet its speed is only 1.2 mach/ speed of sound (920 mph), its armor, however, compensates for its speed with an armor thickness of 1.2 inches.
