Ace Combat - Battle For Equestria - Intermission
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

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
17 September 2017 09:45 hours.
"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.

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

The group was waiting in the situation room when Tex came in.
"Bad news folks. The storm up there isn't going to subside until late afternoon tomorrow, which means no rescue until then."
"Terriffic," Sunfire said disgustedly.
"So when will the planning for the mission be?" asked Ice.
"According to Moonstone tomorrow at noon. So try and get some sleep guys. You'll need it."
"Alright," Dahlia replied.
"We can only hope they will be alright until then, and that the LoD doesn't find them first. I'm sure Discord would love to get ahold of some of the ponies that have been screwing up his plans," added Sunfire.
Discord was almost ready for bed when his 2inC came in.
"What is it?" he asked.
"We have just got word that the POW camp in the Blue Mountains has been destroyed by the NLR. All of the prisoners were rescued."
"You decide to give me bad news before I go to bed?" he asked with a growl in his voice.

Celestia had just finished dinner and was talking to other members of the parliament when Twilight came in.
"What is it my faithful student?"
"Two things. First our mission to sink the Eclipse and others has failed."
"How? We threw over 30 planes at it!"
"And all but three got shot down by two air force squadrons and the other ships in the battle group. Namely that new battleship of theirs the Pacific. It is protected by at least four laser close in weapons."
Members of the parliament chatted among themselves until Celestia spoke again.
"We've got to do something. We can't keep losing aircraft and crews this fast."
"Do you know which NLR squadrons they were?" the commander of the Solar Empire Air Force asked.
"Yes. The Razgriz, and Lunar squadrons."
"Not them again," another pony said as they bickered.
"And that leads me to my other report. We found out which NLR pilot warned our squadron of the stealth cruise missiles."
"Who was it?" the wh

Hangar 12, Whitemare AFB
6 October 2017
Maverick and Glory landed the planes safely and taxied them to the empty hangar. Instead of returning to their bases, Dash and Derpy's squadrons landed also, parking in empty spots on the tarmac. The Shadows parked next to the remaining Lunar squadron planes.
Nearly everypony on the base was in the hangar looking at the two planes that Maverick and Glory had brought in. One member of the ground crew had brought a sandblaster over, and took enough of the paint off one side of each plane to reveal their LoD markings.
"Is Moonstone coming?" Maverick asked Tex.
"Yes. They left 17 minutes ago. They should be here in an hour," he replied.
"This could be the war ending event we need", added Dash.
"What about photos of the site? Those would have been handy," added Derpy.
Glory pulled her camera phone out her flight suit.
"Well imagine that," Whiteblaze said.
"Let's get everything into the situation room and get it ready," T

The end of the war brought great change to Equestria and the countries that were once under Discord's control.
Though pockets of resistance remained in the three countries, they were quickly dealt with. And one week later all had been eliminated by the Republic and Empire armies, and resistance groups.
The Crystal Empire, where it all began, was the first to return to normal. Once all remaining traces of Discord were eliminated, Princess Cadence returned to rule over it once again.
With the death of the original Changeling queen, her daughter Chrysalis, who went into hiding at the start of Discord's invasion, was welcomed in as the new one. The country has been rebounding quickly.
Finally; The Griffin Empire began rebuilding their government, and adopted a temporary ruler until the new one was fully organized. The country's first elections will take place in November.
Many ponies in Equestria called for arms reduction on both sides after the war. But since it had had weakened them
