Ace Combat - Battle for Equestria Ch. 1 - Prologue
For the second time in 6 years Equestria found itself in a war between the New Lunar Republic and Solar Empire. This time a 3rd party; the Legion of Discord was thrown in. Both the NLR and SE fought each other as well as the LoD in a war that lasted 6 months, and almost resulted in the end of Equestria and all other lands as we knew them.
The first war started 4 years after the return of Princess Luna. Both her and Princess Celestia ruled over Equestria peacefully at first. But after a period of time Luna started disapproving of how Celestia was ruling the land, viewing some of it as almost tyrannical. Tensions started rising between the two sisters again, and between the citizens of Equestria, who were also viewing Equestria's rule under the Solar Empire the same way.
It finally came to a head when Celestia announced some new laws at a Parliament meeting. Luna bluntly objected, angering Celestia. A fight broke o

"Oh, why didn't you say F-15S then?" Glory asked Maverick.
"Slip of the tongue".
"I was gonna say try a cobra in a plain F-15 and you're a black spot on the ground".
The group was winding down after the mission when Tex came in.
"Ok guys. Looks like we're going bombing tomorrow".
"Sweet". Ice said. "Any idea what it is?"
"Moonstone didn't say other than it'a an LoD target and it'll be a joint attack with the navy, so i'm pretty sure it will be at sea".
"Swabbies eh?" Angel said. "We'll probably have to bail them out of something".
"Hey now my brother is in the Navy" Maverick replied.
"Oh really? Which ship? A patrol boat?" Angel said trying to get a rise out of him.
"The Sea Demon. He's a Lightning pilot".
"Angel paused for a second. "Hmmm. Ok I've got nothing".
"Woah, you stumped Angel. You're moving up kid!" Dahlia cracked.
"Nice dude", Ice replied. "Did he have to flee Gracemareia too?"
"No he left before discord took over

Maverick was jolted awake by someone banging on his door.
"Hey time to get up newbie!" Yelled a female voice. Maverick groaned and layed down again.
"Come on man I know yesterday was rough but it doesn't matter to the air force!" She continued banging on the door. "Don't make me call you know who's wake up service!"
"OK I'm up Tiger Angel!" He yelled back. He opened the door to see the black and orange Pegasus standing there.
"About time. And just call me Angel" she said as they headed to the mess hall. When he walked over to the table where the rest of the squadron was, it was obvious by the looks on their faces Angel had given them the same treatment too.
"How do you like our squadron alarm clock?" Whiteblaze, the squadron commander asked.
"Does she have a snooze button?"
"I think so but it takes a baseball bat to activate it", replied a pink Pegasus with red mane.
"And only if you can get close enough, Dahlia" Angel said with a growl.

North of Las Pegasus, NLR Equestria

"That's the last one. Return to base", Carrot Top announced over the radio.
"Roger", replied Maverick.
A flight of five Solar Empire attack aircraft had entered the NLR North of Las Pegasus, and Lunar squadron had been sent to intercept them.
"Well at least it happened early enough in the day. We still have plenty of time", replied Angel.
It was suppose to be the squadron's night off, but with Whitemare's other fighter squadron out, they had to intercept them.
Back at the base the group had finished their debriefing in the squadron room.
"OK ponies that's it. Tex said. Enjoy your time off tonight".
"We always do", replied Ice.
The group talked as they walked out.
"So the usual spot again?", Sunfire asked Ice".
"Yep. Won't be the same without Whiteblaze, but at least we can take it out on Maverick".
"Say what?" Maverick said.
"Don't worry it's a great place", replied Ice.

While The squadron was waiting for Tex to come in and Moonstone's feed to start, they chatted about their favorite game "Pony Fortress 2".
"You ponies play video games?" Maverick asked.
"Oh yeah. You're never too old for those!' replied Angel.
"Yeah, you should try it Maverick. It's a free download", Ice added. "Though you better hope Sunfire doesn't get placed on the opposing team. She's the top rated sniper on the server we play on."
"Maybe one of these days", he replied.
"Jeez what does it take to make you loosen up?" Angel asked.
"OK pilots cut the chatter, it's meeting time."
"Oh terrific, we've got another Carrot Top, snapped Angel."
Tex just ignored her and started the feed. Soon she was on.
"OK Moonstone. Whadya' all have for us today?"
"A bit of retaliation for the Empire interrupting our operation against Discord's army."
"Awesome", replied Sunfire.
"We are going to level one of the Empire's largest army bases. You, and Venom sq

"WHAT DO YOU MEAN THEY DIDN'T FIND HIM?" Shouted Glory.
"I mean just that. The Navy found the wreckage but not him", Tex replied.
"Dammit Discord's minions must have got to him first", Ice yelled, throwing a bottle against the wall.
"It's all my fault" Glory said again. The bickering continued until Maverick spoke up.
"That is enough. All of you." Everypony quieted down.
"Yelling and blaming isn't going to get him back any quicker. And if you keep feeling that way you'll be the next to get shot down. We've still got a job to do."
His words seemed to calm them down. After a moment, Glory broke the silence.
"Guess i'm your wingmare now. I won't let you out of my site".
Tex then spoke up
"OK ponies. Let's get out of our suits. Our princess will be addressing the nation at twenty hundred hours. We can watch it while we eat".

"It is time your highness."
"Well let's get going then."
Discord left the palace and headed out to a helicopter that was waiting to take him to the location of the project they had been working on for the last several months.
"Will these tests be painful?" Discord asked.
"They shouldn't. All we'll do is connect everything to you and get it set up."
"Very well. Let's do this. I'm in the mood for some grand scale chaos."
Whitemare AFB Conference Room
Both sides had been up since 6AM going over stuff and readying the peace accords and the plans to jointly go after Discord. The plan was to attack his forces in and around Gracemareia, as well as taking him out. Dash, Rarity, and Fluttershy spent the time getting caught up. As soon as Pinkie heard they were together she made a bee line for the base, and was also talking to them.
"I can't believe we're back together! Well we are missing Twilight and Applejack but t

My quest to find him and those who were his friends, and enemies took me all over the five countries that were involved in the war.
Maverick's friends praised the work he did for the squadron. His enemies showed discontent, but also seemed to have been impressed by his abilities.
The more I read up on Maverick and the Lunar squadron, the more eager I was to meet them.
1st Lieutenant Rover. "Draco 1"
Former member of the Legion of Discord Air Force
15th Fighter Squadron.
Originally self employed, he joined the LoD air force after the takeover. He has since returned to his previous job of digging for gems.
"My squadron was flying on a routine patrol just off the coast when we got the call about the radar site in the volcano being attacked. We immediately headed for it to intercept them.
Unfortunately we got there too late to save the site. We engaged them anyway, which turned out to be a mistake. We had s

Discord had just finished breakfast when his second in command came in to the throne room.
"So is everything set for the attack tonight?" Discord asked.
"Yes. The subs are in position 150 miles off of the coasts. We're just waiting for nightfall," the Minotaur replied.
"Very good. Now what about the other project?"
"We ran into a snag, but almost have it taken care of. It should be ready by next weekend."
"'Should be' doesn't sound that good," Discord said with an unamused look on his face.
"W-well I'm just being cautious. I mean..."
"No that's OK. That's all I need to know."
The squadron was watching TV when Tex showed up.
"OK ponies. Moonstone's holding a meeting in 20 minutes so lunch may have to wait a bit."
"That's odd," replied Glory. "I thought our mission was tomorrow?"
"It's been scrubbed because of whatever it is she's going to talk about," he replied.
"Hmmm. This might be something
