An original Erusean squadron's livery for the Su-35S. Includes Arcturus 1 and 6 markings, replaces all skins.
The 216th Tactical Fighter Wing, Arcturus, was initially part of the Kingdom of Erusea's air force prior to its dissolution and reformation as the Federal Republic. It subsequently became known as Red Squadron until the squadron’s decimation in the Continental War and dissolution at the war’s end.
Arcturus Squadron was reactivated in 2012 as part of the reformed Kingdom of Erusea’s rearmament, restoring its original name in an effort to distance the squadron from its FEAF predecessor and the Free Erusean pilots operating as Red Squadron. A decision was also made to give Arcturus’ aircraft their grey-and-red color scheme to further differentiate them from the previous Arcturus.
Arcturus first saw action during the 2014 Free Erusea uprising, defending Selatapura and the then-incomplete International Space Elevator. The squadron was reassigned to Sierraplata in 2017, spending much of the Lighthouse War assisting in testing UAV performance under high winds until early October of that year, when, with communications and supplies cut off, they ventured to Selatapura to join the remaining Erusean forces. Arcturus wound up participating in Operation Daredevil as part of the coalition forces until forced to withdraw, and subsequently returned to Sierraplata to help restore order under IUN-PKF oversight, where their red aircraft became a welcome sight to those seeking refuge at the base of the ISEV.
Voicelines for a "Red Squadron" can be heard throughout Ace Combat 04 and Ace Combat 5's Arcade Mode, which inspired this idea. Squadron colors are based off concepts for Yellow Squadron's colors, albeit in red rather than yellow.
