Crater Squadron also known as Demons of the Skies, by the People of Soviet Russia during the years of World War II use to be an elite Rangerian 16 Plane Squadron, consisting of 8 Fighters, and 8 Bombers, both Medium and Diving alike.
The Squadron was established in 1942, by Young Harrison Roran during the German Invasion of the Soviet Union, after Operation Barbarossa in 1941.
4 nearly 4 months there seemed to be no stopping Crater Squadron, until the Soviets launched an Elite Squadron of their own, known as Stalin Squadron Throughout the rest of the Second World War in the East leading to Germany.
Both Crater & Stalin, would compete against each other over the air, despite both Squadrons knocking planes out of the air from both sides, The aerial conflict after the war Ended was considered to be a Draw.
Young Harrison Roran was sent to provide close air support for German Forces, on the Eastern front. 4 about 2 to 3 months Young was always flying around with other German Fighters to cover the German advance from the air.
Months later he would even have to escort Bombers all the time. Getting heavily board of always having to follow Rangerian Code. Young broke formation during a transfer from Base Olympus to Base Tyrus, On April 2nd, of 1942 where he landed back at Olympus shooting a couple of the Soviet Invaders as they stormed the airfield.
German forces that were trapped inside began to Board a grand total of about 15 planes, 7 were fighters 4 were Stuka Dive Bombers and another 4 were Ju-88 Medium class Bombers. Young began to cover the planes as they took off into the safety of the air, and managed to head back West towards Tyrus Airfield. However while on the way there A group of Soviets P-39 Fighter planes attempted to shoot down the 16 Aircraft leading to a complete and historical dog fight over the Village of Horsha. Despite the Bombers being used for Attacking ground targets, both the Ju-87's and Ju-88's made a historical Turn in Aerial warfare in Regian history, as the first Bombers to ever engage in a dog fight.
Despite many Russians attempting to shoot down the Squadron of 16 planes, about a grand total of about 50 Soviet Planes have dropped out of the sky clearing the way back to Tyrus. To make matters even more interesting, is that the Squadron did not receive any loses.
Upon arriving at Tyrus Young was court martial for Disobeying direct orders, but was defended by the pilots who he had saved 3 days ago, dropping his criminal charges Young and the 15 other planes flew into the skies again and attacked a group of Soviet planes around the entire region. Hitler very amazed on how a Squadron of about 8 fighters and 8 Bombers were able to take on a group of Russian fighters without the Bombers ever losing a plane.
On April 23rd, 1942, Young decided to hold a little test round on the Ju-87 hopping to see if it was dog fighting compatible, a huge air engagement took place in the skies above the occupied Smolensk area where a squadron of friendly German BF-109's engaged Harrison with his idea of a challenge, by about over half an hour of air combat, out of 16 BF-109's only 2 made it back to the air field in one piece.
Young now truly amazed on the stunts that he has done, later took to the skies against tougher opponents, but like the first time all 16 were shot down, leaving Young Harrison Roran, with the final test, of Dog Fighting, fighting pure ace veterans.
On the 24th, of April, Harrison entered Soviet airspace with the Ju-87 only to be met by Soviet ace pilots, after about 10 minutes and 17 Seconds, of war in the Kursk area, Harrison managed to shoot down all 20 Soviet fighters with only one Ju-87 Stuka Dive Bomber, Impressed on what he is done, Young than declared the Stuka dive bomber is indeed dog fighting compatible, and that it should be flown along with him in a future squadron.
On April 27th, Young did the exact same tests, he did with the Ju-87, with the Ju-88 Medium bomber, though dog fights were hours due to a bomber not having capable machine guns.
Although fairly slow, Young stated that the Ju-88 would be a perfect defense wall to protect fighters from flanking attacks along as dog fighting against other fighters, the tests were so well that 12 Days later On May 8th, Young Harrison Roran Formed CRATER Squadron which changed not only the history of Ariel Warfare of Harrison's entire history, but also Rangerian Military History.
The Second World War 1942-1945Edit
The Smolensk TheaterEdit
Despite Operation Barbrossa's success, a year prior to the Squadron's establishment in 1941, Pockets of Soviet forces still plauged the lands all around the Smolensk region, where it multiple gurrilla style attacks were often conducted against German soldiers on the road.
CRATER launched on its first mission together on August 2nd, 1942 where it bombed several strategic Soviet rally points all along the Russland Area, Crater's attacks against these Soviet strong holds would eventually bring Soviet guerilla attacks to a halt, where as despite the fact of many Soviet fighter planes being launched against them, their counter air attacks would often fail against the Squadron of 16 planes, even if the soviets were to outnumber the German squadron with large fleets of aircraft in the weeks to come.
Though successful against the Resistance cells all along the Russland region, the Soviet Union eventually came up with a plan to launch a squadron of the two most experienced pilots in the history of the Soviet Union, where they would shoot down these 16 planes once and for all in order to stop their constant air poundings on their remaining forces all around the Russland area.
This squadron was identified as Zyma, a squadron of two Russian fighter planes that would later go down in history as the first Squadron that Engaged Crater Squadron in a squadron against squadron aerial fight above the Russland area. Crater launched on August 22nd, where they eventually located the diversionary armored column at Marivo road along with a poorly built structure which looked as an outpost.
Though Crater was successful in destroying the diversionary armored column, the squadron eventually figured out about the whole area being a hoax, and were soon attacked by Zyma from the west, beginning the squadron battle above Mariov road.
With Zyma's squadron being made up of 2 fighters, and one recon plane. Crater had managed to get a hold of them before they could work out their tactical plans against the 16 plane squadron. The 2 fighters were shot down in mid seconds, but the recon aircraft managed to escape the region and back East and toward out of German territory.
By August 23rd, 1942 a day after the squadron engagement over Marvio Road, the Germans lead an all out offensive against the Volga River city of Stalingrad.
Despite bad weather conditions, the offensive's initiations against the volga went on schedule, and by September 1st, it was declared that there was no need for Crater at the time, so the 16 plane Squadron remained in the Russland region for another 2 more months were they continued to attack Soviet strongholds hidden in the region.
On September 22nd, 1942, Crater launched, and began to conducted a grand total of about 250 endless air strikes against the Smolensk region to the point that the Soviet Union abandoned their formal field HQ's and fled the Russland area.
It would be declared from these constant attacks and failed air counter attacks against Crater, on September 24th, 1942, where the Geramn Squadron would eventually receive their affiliation "Demons of the Skies".
Crater was eventually called to aide the German led offensive at Stalingrad on November 22nd, 1942, when the Soviets began to over power the German lead offensive against the city, officially putting an end to Crater's presence in the Russland region of the Soviet Union.
The Stalingrad TheaterEdit
Despite their defeat on August 22nd, 1942, pilots of Zyma Mikail Ramonov, and Nork Monticof, had managed to survive their encounter with Crater, and escape out of German territory by foot, where as after the events of their failed first clash, Zyma tripled it's fighters where it eventually grew from 2-4. On September 4th, 1942, Zyma was launched into the air once again, after Monticof's and Ramonov's recoveries, where they would later learn that Crater was taking part in the Battle of Stalingrad, and was attacking a group of Soviet fuel convoys while on the road to the destroyed city.
They also discovered but were not surprised by this event, that all fighters that tried to engage them were shot down in mid minutes or even seconds due to the pilots not being capable into out running the Bomber/Fighter squadron.
Zyma completely determined now, launched from Ripanov Airfield in the Kusrk area, and entered the Stalingrad region where they found and engaged Crater a second time over Frail hill while on the way back to their new Air field at Bruno.
Despite being overwhelmed, and shot down, Zyma managed to stay in the air for at least 20-30 minutes longer than they did the last time they encountered Crater.
Ramanov and Montiof once again survived the second engagement, but the three new pilot recruits would not be so lucky. After gathering more pilots from the city of Amatrov located about 20 miles East of Stalingrad, Zyma launched again a third time in order to attack on Crater, for a third time on December 25th, 1942, and this time attempted to try and shoot down the 16 planes while they were attempting to cover Rangerian ground forces of the advancing Germans that were entering Stalingrad, but were once again overwhelmed and shot down.
On December 27th, 1942, Zyma made one final attack against Crater, in an attempt to hit them while they were carrying bombs, where they planed to use the heavy weight towards their advantage. During this time Crater was tasked by Rangerian high command seek out and destroy an important Russian targets around the city of Stalingrad. After entering the city, the squadron brgan attacking a group of Soviet tank repair factories in the city, grabbing the attention of Zyma, who was out looking for them at the time outside the city.
The tactic once again failed with the fighters dropping their bombs and engaging Zyma while the Bombers destroyed the factories.
On January 14th, 1943, Crater getting heavily annoyed with Zyma's interfering with their missions, and war efforts, managed to locate Zyma's airfield in the Kursk region, with the help of the Heinrich Rangerian Satellite in orbit around Earth.
Zyma not even ready were just relaxing while listening to their radios waiting for their presence in the air.
Their relaxation, was interrupted by the sounds of the air raid sirens forcing all pilots to exit their barracks, and look outside to see their worst nightmare that has been shootin them down for nearly almost 4 months right over their airfield.
Some aircraft up to 12 or 15 managed to leave ground and engage Crater, over the Ripanov Airfield, but Zyma had to launch their four planes quickly for the Soviet air defenses were not going to be able to hold Crater away from the field for too long.
After 3 aircraft managed to escape into the air the fourth one tragivally never made it as Zyma 4 was shot down by Crater 12. Zyma hopping to avenge their down comrade, try to engage but were once again overwhelmed and shot down.
The pilots left their planes but became targets for the Craters 13 to 16's frontal nose gunners, after minutes Zyma's pilots were all dead and Ripanov Airfield was left in ruins, further eliminating Zyma squadron from the war. After this successful attack, Crater returned to the Stalingrad region, and continued to mount up ground support missions and bombing runs against the Soviet counter attack against Stalingrad, but their by February, the battle for Stalingrad was eventually lost to the Axis Powers, and Crater was forced to relocate to Kursk, where the Rangerienas had recently taken over parts of the land.
The Sibera AssaultEdit
In the months following the Axis defeat at Stalingrad, Young Harrison Roran took the events as an advantage to check on the Anne Frank family, a family that he had been keeping safe in the Netherlands, by having his forces in the city instead of Rangerians or Hitler's units, where they pretend to not know about Anne Frank hiding in the city with her family and three other tenants.
During Young's absents, the rest of Crater's pilots and gunners quickly went to work on upgrading their fighters and bombers in hopes of trying to figure out a way to turn the tide against the Soviets, however an urgent message would eventually be sent over to all squad mates, where Young was eventually forced to leave the Frank family in the Netherlands and return to Soviet Russia in order to regroup with his squadron mates.
It was from here that the Rangerians had managed to pinpoint a hidden Soviet facility located in the Siberian desert, and that it possessed a large quantity of newly developed aircraft that if brought to the front, might toss the Young's soul Regians out of Russia, from with that, Crater launched on the night of July 11th, 1943, and set out for Siberia with newly installed Rangeria fuel storage chips.
After arriving in Siberia during a snow storm, Crater flew constantly at high altitude over the storm in hopes of locating the facility faster, by the Rangerian satellite, the squadron was successful in picking up the location of the facility within their CPU's and automatically dove back down into the storm down towards the location of where the facility was supposed to be.
The sight of the 16 planes was immediately spotted by Riov Makrokuv, who quickly sounded the air raid sirens, while hundreds of the workers retreated outside their barracks while attempting to take cover from the air attack.
Despite heavy air defenses, Crater was succesful in their attack, while they used the blizard and heavy winds towards their advantage, after about a half hour, the Siberian facility, that was later identified on Rangerian computers as the Minokov Facility was left in ruins, but the Soviets counter attacked against this, by launching their newly developed experimental aircraft against Crater, leading to a 16 against 24 battle in the skies above the ruined facility.
The battle seemd to be a challenge for Crater, but despite this, they were still able to succesfully bring down the outmatching numbers of experimental Sonokol class fighters, leaving the surviving residents of the facility to delare that Crater Squadron really was demons of the skies, as anything they through at them would fail and not cause a single one of their planes to drop from the skies.
After the succesful attack and showdown with the Sonokol fighters, Crater then turned back west and made their way back towards German held territory, where they later learned of Germany's new offensive codenamed Operation CITADEL, that would take place in the Kursk region.
Upon returning back to the Kursk region, Crater immiedieatly fueled their planes, and discarded their fuel storage chips in order to set preporations for the Kursk Offensive, Young at this time had already restocked the planes ammo cartridges, and the squdron of 16 launched once more on July 14th, 1943, on the third day of Operation CITADEL In order to cover the offensive.
In the actual conclusin, following the assault on Siberia, the sudden appearance of German planes would forever surprise the Soviet Union, as Crater went down in history as the first and only group of German planes to ever make to the deep center of Russia.
Immediately after launching, Crater began to attack Soviet entrenchments all around the Kursk region, despite heavy causalities that was conducted against the Soviets on the ground, the Russians were still able to hold their ground against endless waves of both Axis and Rangerian attacks.
Moscow, however after learning of the sudden destruction of the Facility in Siberia then organized a new squadron in hopes of eliminating the Sky Demons one and for all, and with that in July 15th, 1943 Moscow Squadron was established and immediately deployed to Kursk, where they scrambled and began to harass Crater every where they went, eventually grinding the Axis offensive to a halt, and forcing other German planes to fight on in Crater's place.
Though the offensive continued on like normally, the lack of support from Crater eventually caused the German more causalities then ever by July 16th, 1943.
As the Soviets Union began its counter attack against the Germans on July 15th, 1943, Moscow Squadron was successful in diverting Crater away from the Kursk region where both squadrons engaged one another in a fight to the end. Crater was able to become the victory bay eventually outmatching and shooting down Moscow Squadron that same day on July 15th, 1943.
Though Crater was able to return to Kursk and cover the German defenses they would be too late to save the offensive. By August 23rd, the Soviets had managed to successfully overrun most of the Rangerian side of the Axis lines, while the German side was completely slaughtered at Battle of Kharkov.
Once again following another failed offensive, Crater was immediately called back to the Russland region, where they returned to their formal home air base at Tyrus.
Crater is Ambushed over CrimeaEdit
Upon returning to Russland, Young is eventually weakened by servere allied bombings against his heart city of Berlin, by the American and Hilandish Airforce (Royal Airforce), but he was still able to keep himself active for a little longer just to go and pay one last visit to Anne Frank and her family in the Netherlands, on September 2nd of 1943, where he watched over the Netherlands up until he was sent back to Russia on June 2nd, of 1944, where he and Crater are to fly West and establish a new attack against Highlend, in hopes of easing pressure from him attacking his heart city.
Though Crater launched as scheduled on June 4th 1943, and landed at Crimea in order to refuel for the flight westbound, Young was eventually contacted by Hitler, stating that the Allies had begun a new offensive against the shores of France, and that he and Crater would have to eliminate this landing operation before the walls of Fortress Europe could be breached, in a hurry Crater launched again and raced west, hipping to catch the Americans, Hilandish, and Canadian forces on the beaches.
Unfortunately, Crater's journey west would be short, as the Soviets soon surprised and attacked the 16 Plane squadron, only this time, this new Russian squadron had the exact same number of planes as Crater, and also possessed Diver Bombers, and Medium bombers as Crater's rank. A new battle ensured over the black sea, but Crater for the first time in it's establishment was finally shot down over the ocean, but this was not considered a victory to the Soviets as they had lost 14 of their planes as well.
It was then from here, that Young eventually caught the name of the Russian squadron, where it was identified as Stalin Squadron. Unfortunately, due to this ambush, Crater never made it to the Western front and the beach defenses would later be breached by the Allied forces.
Crater's Return to GermanyEdit
Following Crater's first defeat and the success of Operation Overlord, Crater was sent back to Germany, mostly due to Young's pour condition, from heavy allied bombings day and night, and the Squadron was grounded due Young's deterioration.
Crater however was given new planes, in response to the old ones being lost over Crimea, but do to groundation, they would never be able to fly them until 1945, when the War would eventually come to Young Harrison himself.
Invasion of Berlin & End of WWIIEdit
By the end of 1944, the Germans and Rangerians had began to lose too much ground continental wide, as the allies began to break their way into Harrison's soul body, Young Harrison was placed inside the Fuhrer bunker, by his squadron mates, but the sudden arrival of the Soviets at Seelow Hights would eventually fore Young out for one last time despite protests from the Third Reich.
From April 16th, to April 19th, of 1945, Crater had managed to provide what air cover they could to the defending Germans at Seelow, but the sudden return of Stalin Squadron would eventually turn things against Crater. by April of 1945 the Soviets entered Berlin and began to shell the city to the ground killing all insight, Crater was eventually ordered to fled west, back to Allied lines to surrender there, but once again encountered Stalin Squadron, where another major battle took place above the wastelands of what used to be Berlin.
During this engagement, By April 24th, the Rangeraians had completely escaped Earth through Warping technology, removing all evidence of their existence within the Right stage, eventually leaving the Third Reich to die tot he Soviets. Young attempted to hold together in the skies above Berlin despite multiple German leaders advising him to turn around and land.
From April 19th, to May 1st, 1945, most of the Third Reich Party leaders began to commit suicide all around the destroyed city, where Hitler himself also ended his life along with Eva Braun on April 30th of 1945.
This sudden turn would automatically lead to the crumbling of the Fascist leadership leaving only Young Harrison left active, despite his badly destroyed body from Germany's destruction over the years.
The air engagement lasted only a half hour and both squadrons were considered to have been shotdown, declaring the engagement above Berlin to be a draw. By night of May 2nd, of 1945, A couple of German soldiers, under the command of Hasso von Manteuffel, commander of the III Panzer Army, pulled Young out of his destroyed plane, and helped him over to the surrender table where he along with General Kurt von Tippelskirch, much to Young's happiness and joy, would finally innate an end to the 6 year war which had plagued him. Young Harrison, due to his pour condition and World War II in Europe ended after teh fall of the Third Reich.
Immediately after the War, Crater was quickly disbanded, but the memories and histories of the Squadron would forever remain in history books for the years to come. Young after this horrific war would eventually spend about 44 years on East Germany for punishment of the second world war, despite him not wanting anything to do with it.
Later History 2016 - 2029 EditDuring the events of both the European Civil War, and World War III, CRATER despite having it's exact same name was given new designs of Aircraft.
The Squadron was equipped with Energetic technology in which New Harrison and the rest of the pilots of CRATER Praised finally being allowed to use laser weaponry again after bein forced by the Rangerians to sop even since the turning events in Earth's history of both the Showgun Show down, and the Enron War.
The European Civil WarEdit
CRATER was re established by New Harrison Roran, during the European Civil War, in the events of The Siege of Gorgon Fortress, during the Denmarkian invasion of Germany.After the Repulsing the Denmarkian Invasion and pushing the Invaders out of Germany, CRATER began to cover much of the German forces as they began to Invade France. However unknown to all of Europe, a group of A.E.L. Commandos managed to gain control of about 5-10 of R.E.C.E.S.F. Satellites in Orbit from both land base in North Germany known as Satan Hill, and The Sparta, in Poland. CRATER was however diverted from France in order to aide the German forces in order to reclaim Satan Hill. However before CRATER and the forces of Germany was able to arrive at Satan Hill, the Facility was abandoned.
New Harrison, and the rest of CRATER now confused and realizing that the Satan Hill attack was nothing but a mir diversion, started to race back towards France where all A.E Countries were engaged. Although they were able to make it over Paris, during the Clash In Paris between all Europeans Nations, the Satellites Erupted and destroyed much of the region, forcing the 21 Continentals to stop the European Civil War, due to severer damage and a half Corrupted Country.
The Events of the RECESF Holocaust, New Harrison was weakened and almost plunged to his death, until he was rescued by CRATER's 14 and 17's Aegis 8 Bombers, before stalling towards the Earth below. After the Holocaust, New Harrison was entirly shut down, forcing CRATER to air tow New Harrison's Aerial Sphere, back to Berlin in order to recover. 3 days after New Harrison was able to recover, but still had dents and damage from the destruction of much of Germany during the Holocaust.
The Third World War 2019-2029Edit
The Russian Theater 2021-2024Edit
During the Third World War, New Harrison and CRATER Squadron took part in the Russian Theater from 2021-2024, providing Operations in both Behind Russian lines and on the front.
Despite having new and improved aircraft designs, CRATER was recognized by Russians whom either had relatives during the Second World War, or World War II Veterans that have not yet passed away. CRATER's return to Russian skies would spark fear amongst the whole nation strengthening aerial defenses from both frontline and back line combat.
Despite these new and improve special fortifications, the attempts would still be to weak in shooting down CRATER Who would often rely on there old formations, making them almost impossible to shoot down.
As the war reached Moscow, CRATER was dealing with Operations in Siberia behind Russian lines that would last even after the COntinental Withdraw to the United States beginning the American Theater in 2023. This would Leave New Harrison the only Continental Left in Russia.
By June 2nd, 2024, the A.E launched a fourth attempt to Attack Moscow, but were repelled by the Super fortress that stood in the way between Moscow, and Kampov. These major failed attacks would soon force the unnamed leaders to re summon Harrison who was already taking on Russian convoys deep behind Russian lines with CRATER Squadron, a legendary Squadron consisting of both Fighters and Bombers that were known to be remembered since the events of the Second World War.
New Harrison whom was the only Continental not taking part in the U.S Theater, was switched from Deep Aerial Operations into Frontline coverage in hopes that the Squadron could bring down Urora Fortress and once again allow the A.E an entry way into Moscow.
On 12th, June CRATER arrived on the front after engaging Russians in Siberia, and began to cover the A.E advance towards Urora Fortress by providing both close and long range air support, taking out both Pill boxes, bunkers, and Artillery entrenchments in both the forests and hills leading up to the fortress.
CRATER's presence had been reached throughout all of Russia ever since the beginning of the Russian Theater sparking intense fear amongst the ranks of Russia.
Due to the Second World War's end most of STALIN Squadron and other squadrons that took on CRATER during the events of the second world war were lost due to an unknown source, making the Russians fight CRATER like they use to during the events of the Second World War engaging them with nothing more but fighters, and no bombers.
Shadow ordered all available aircraft in order to defend the fort, but even this wouldn't work allowing the A.E to claim the fortress and establish a stronghold even closer to Moscow than ever.
After the occupation of Urora Fortress on June 30th, the unnamed leaders than ordered CRATER to launch aerial attacks on Moscow, in hopes of weakening the cities defenses. By July 3rd, 2024 CRATER unleashed multiple attacks along side other A.E Aircraft, but were unable to break down the Russian defenses, despite massive damage to Moscow.
At first the Unnamed Leaders ordered CRATER, to continue bombing operations, but New Harrison and the rest of CRATER back stabbed the orders and instead withdrew from Russia returning to Germany, where New Harrison would soon take off again and fly towards the United States where he would later land at Gorgelous Island.
Grand Canyon AttackEdit
- Main article: Grand Canyon Raid
Though CRATER never had a major role in the American Theater, the Squadron was secretly ordered by New Harrison during the final months of the Gorgelous theater when the United States began To regain ground destroying Stonehenge as well in the process. CRATER however was stalled due to bad weather forcing the transfer to be cancelled until the next day. By September 2025 CRATER launched for the United States, in order to regroup with New Harrison and aide the A.E during the Gorgelous Campaign.
However though CRATER Had arrive in A.E Occupied Washington D.C where they were refueled and rearmed in order to help strive off the advancing americans and other nations that were fighting in the American Theater. Were ordered to Assault and attack a target deep inside the United States in the Grand Canyon. New Harrison whom had been playin both sides during the Gorgelous Campaign arrived in occupied Washington D.C where he regrouped with his squadron, and also took part in the attack, despite arguing with the rest of the Continental's and Lion sisters stating that the attack was suicide.
While on the way towards the Grand Canyon, after crossing the New Mexican/Arisona Boarder, and engaging several American waves of fighter jets while on the way. New Harrison began to explain to his squadron that he has been playin both sides, because the war in America was pointless, and that an American Japanese soldier named Zero Koakshi knew the truth behind the whole war. New Harrison had expected his fellow squad mates to act outraged on how he was workin with both the A.E and United States forces, but instead was surprised to hear that his squad mates talkin in a very steady and calm tone sounding more proud than upset due to New Harrison's honesty and mostly knowing him ever since the Second World War, actually agreed with every word that he said stating that they will talk about it once they return to Germany.
Upon arriving in the skies over the Grand Canyon located on the Clorodo Plateau, CRATER was ordered by Omega Koakshi to fly at extremely low altitude mostly due to the canyon's thick waves of strong radar covering the entire Plateau.
This action would cause CRATER to fly through the Ravines of the Canyon taking out any patrols and wall defenses that stood in there way in hopes of not sounding the alarm. After clearing most of the way, CRATER was than forced to enter a cave that was dark and dim due to the Radar converging in there way and forbidding them from flying anywhere else in the canyon or higher up.
While flying in an Aerial Chain, formation the Squadron made there way through the thick dark caves covered by lights that were sent by the Fighters and Bombers. The Bombers had the strongest of lights and often shifted They're search lights up and down and other separate directions in order to locate stalagmites that the squadron may encounter. After about 12 minutes of flying through the dangerous cave while evading stalagmites, and other dangerous cave structures, the Squadron finally reached the other side, and was able to fly freely with the Weapons lab located in another cave on the High mountain.
Before entering the second Cave, CRATER encountered a U.S Fighter patrol and automatically engaged. They managed to destroy the squadron in just under 12 minutes preventing them from calling for help, and allowing them to continue on towards the cave ahead.
Upon entering the second Cave, with there same tactics, (In an Aerial Rail Formation along with Search lights scattered in several directions) CRATER was able to suprise the United States Military inside the Caves, where they destroyed the Control Gate Entry ways allowing the Squadron clearance into the Labs. After destroying the outside with no communications to the Surface due to being to deep underground, New Harrison and the rest of CRATER began to engage several unmanned drones that were launched by the Labs Court yard. These drones were easily shot down by the German Squadron resulting into the destruction of the Court Yard, and central office building.
CRATER than pursuied a large convoy that was attempting to escape deeper into the caves, where despite many Stalagmites and other cave Structures the Squadron managed to succeed in Destroying a Cavern Bridge preventing them from getting a cross. The Bomber side of CRATER managed to finish off the rest of the Convoy in the process but a troublesome American soldier destroyed one of the Caves support structures causing the cavern to become unstable.
CRATER Eventually managed to race out from under the ground and back into the skies before the Cavern caved in. After the destruction of the American Weapons Lab, CRATER attempted to return back to the A.E Occupied Southern Coast, but were ambushed by American fighters, including a new and improved Goliath that was launched from the lab before CRATER's arrival.
Fighting the Goliath took plaCe over the Texas New Orlands Boarder, despite such a heavy engagement CRATER was able to destroy Goliath and reach Occupied New Orlands for both repairs, refueling and Ammunition.
- Main article: Operation Soran
After refueling and rearming at New Orlands, New Harrison had planned to return to Gorgelous Island, and continue to fight along side both Zero, and A.E. The time of the Operation was nearing a closer, as the A.E began to lose control of the Island, along with both Hunter and Dodger now under American custody.
New Harrison than returned back to Gorgelous Island, this time with CRATER Squadron who would see the Island for the first time. After arriving and landing at Degra Air Field in San Farga, New Harrison began to explain to his squadron members that he had managed to meet Zero Koakshi, during the Gorgelous Theater in which would be the first time that Zero would encounter the pilots of CRATER Squaron face to face.
Zero Koakshi, whom was amongst one of the defenders at Gorgelous met the Pilots of CRATER stating in amazement that he had heard of Harrison and CRATER during the events of the Second World War. These statements would allow CRATEr to get along easily with Zero, despite being on a separate side.
CRATER however despite being an A.E Squadron was chosen by Zero, himself in order to take part in a special operation in order to quell a large air rebellion that was threatening the Island by the surviving A.E Italian and Irish air forces.
Despite having to refuse at first mostly due to the fact that CRATER has never once worked with another country besides Germany or Europe, was convinced by New Harrison that it was a best choice and that the war would have to end other wise there would never again be a Europe. This event in which CRATER Agreed to work along side the United States airforce was the first time in history that CRATER would work with another country and attack their own factions.
CRATER After having to agree with to work with Zero on April 3rd, Conducted the Operation a day after on April 4th of 2026,along with the support of a single AWACS was dispatched by the United States HQ.
The operation took the 16 Air strike force across the entire Island of Gorgelous. Combat had broken out again in areas such as Mount Hanan and Zarland, allowing CRATER to fight on the Island for the first time after having to miss the Gorgelous Theater that ended a year before on September 17th, 2025. The A.E Air Forces were reliant on transports to fully back their engagements, but these transports were targeted and destroyed by CRATER's Bomber sides.
The loss of these transports somewhat hinder the A.E air Invader Forces. However, their presence was seen in full force near the end of the conflict.
Newly Large Experimental EURO-8 universal transports, Sky Carriers, Dropships, and bombers were also encountered by CRATER, and was easily shot down by the Aerial Sphere side of CRATER, while the Bomber side reluctantly chose to shoot down the Drop ships.
As Operation Soran neared it's end, the final mass of A.E Irish and Italin Forces amassed at their headquarters, On the Island of Eran, off the coast of the Normandy coastline, New Harrison and CRATER were credited by the United States military in helping quell the attack and ending the A.E threat to the United States once and for all, and were given more fuel and ammunition in order to go out on one last sortie and end Soran once and for all.
The A.E HQ on Eran Island was a gigantic runway, as well as a newly constructed space port, capable of supporting all air activities, and launching new R.E.S.C.E.F Satellites into orbit.
There were also facilities for naval operations and petroleum development/usage, but They were still under construction. This entire facility was attacked and destroyed by CRATER Squadron, with ease despite such well entrenched Anti Air Defenses. CRATER even managed to target the large runway, causing the Bomber sides to destroy the Platform while the Fighter sides targeted the construction sites as well.
As the operation ended, the A.E responded with unexpected attacks that were launched against CRATER Squadron, from the Occupied US. Mainland. Six newly created A.E Fighters, the United-A7 aircraft (also known as 'Sky Hord') had appeared on the battlefield along with another six newly experimental V-39 Medium Bombers, were encountered by CRATER 12, in which would respond into a large aerial war over the Eran Coast line.
At the time, these aircraft were believed to be the best aircraft on the planet, created from the machines of Euro's Industries.
New Harrison along with the rest of CRATER, became entangled with the A7's and V-39's resulting into a large. In an amazing show of skill, CRATER Squadron knowing of there first defeats dating back too the Second World War, within the wings of STALIN Squadron rethought there demise and defeated both the A-7's and V-39's before returning to base.
The A.E threat was neutralized, and the United States had just finished off the last of the A.E forces liberating the East coast on December 7th, of 2026 10 months following the end of Operation Soran. Immediately after Soran's end CRATER flew off into the horizon of the East Atlantic never to be seen in the skies over America again.
The Pacific Theater 2027Edit
On April 24th, 2027, CRATER was once again dispatched by Paris, in order to try and aide in the the A.E Expansion in the Pacific, for the war at this time had began to take a terrible toll against the Continent. The Squadron of 16 planes launched a succesful attack against the Japanse naval port in Tokyo, before the A.E launched an amphibious assault on the Island, from there New Harrison and the rest of CRATER continued to cover the A.E ground offensive up until July 2nd, 2027 where the Japanese Maritime forces unleashed a squadron of thier own against CRATER using the tactics from an ancient rival of theirs during the Second World War.
CRATER was attacked and repeled during the Battle of Mailiyosho that same day on July 2nd of 2027, by Kaiyojo Squadron, a squadron of newly developed experimental fighters and attackers that was commanded by Lt. Eva Hasai. Crater was diverted away from Mailiyosho, but A.E reinforcements continued to hammer the regions, allowing the Europeans to receive another victory on Japanese soil.
Crater engaged Kaiyojo Squadron, but neither planes were able to shoot the other down, due to great piloting skills, and advanced maneuvers, eventually both squadrons ran out of ammunition and dispersed declaring there engagement a draw, however before the break off, New Harrison actually spoke with Eva stating on his mind that she is a worthy opponent, and that she brought back alot of memories for him back 83 years ago during the Second World War, and also stated that her nation was the first country to finally create technology that would at last catch up with Artemis Europe's technological advances.
Crater returned to Tokyo to take on fuel and ammo, but had to immediately be scrambled again, due to the A.E advance taking a bad turn on the farmlands of Ailiono, that was located roughly about 20 miles North of Maliyosho, after the Maritime forces unleashed a new kind of ground field of EMP which disabled most of the A.E's heavy armor, and even went as far as shutting down their guns, as they were powered by electric energy cells.
During this engagement Eva and Kaiyojo squadron scrambled themselves and once again engaged Crater over the farm lands, Crater was however forced to pull back early due to not being fully fueled, but by August 2nd, the farmlands were overrun, and the A.E were forced into retreat back to Mailiyosho, leaving most of their dead equipment behind, including some of the Soul Regians who's chips were not fitted with EMP shielding.
Crater was immediately called out to cover defend the A.E garrison at Maliyosho, but a new problem was escalating in the Pacific. By August 15th, 2027, Crater scrambled off in order to try and escape Japan, who at the time was pushing the A.E back towards the Pacific Ocean, they once again encountered Kaiyojo squadron and another show down took place, the showdown one again ended in a draw with both squadrons running ot of ammo and fuel and forcing them to restock and refuel.
By September 2nd, the A.E were forced out of Tokyo by the Maritime counter attack, while at the same time were defeated in China several months prior, it would be from here that the Pacific offensive was easily falling apart for the Artemis Empire.
Crater eventually landed in occupied Guam where they continued to attack the Japanese Islands with constant bombings and destruction.
Liberation of GuamEdit
By November 2nd, of 2027, the Island of Guam was attacked by the United Federal States of America, where Crater was ordered to cover the A.E as they withdrew from the Island. The engagement lasted only 5 days, despite great defenses the A.E possessed the United States was able to successfully retake their territorial Island by November 8th, of 2027.
After the liberation of Guam, Crater was ordered to return to Europe, but as the squadron was escaping, a young Japanese soldier named Ilikan Hosiki tossed a tracking divise on one of Crater's Aeigis 8 Bomber units before they took off into the sky.
It would be from this tracking device on where Kaiyojo squadron will be able to easily find and attack Crater where ever they go.
Return to Europe & First DefeatEdit
On December 1st, 2027, Crater after taking on air fuel in the upper atmosphere was successfully able to return back to its home country where they landed at Bruno Mar airfield in Eastern Berlin.
New Harrison at this point began to feel more and more weak, as the war against Europe was taking an even bigger toll then ever, as it was later found out that the Russians began to Invade Poland, and are rapidly advancing through the countryside.
Crater was then attacked by a newly developed Kaiyojo squadron who were known to have followed Crater in secrecy during their journey back to Europe, Crated scrambles as Kaiyojo leads the squadron of 16 away from the mainland, and new engagement begins over the Mediterranean sea.
The Battle soon starts to go against Crater, due to the age and formality of the Pilots, and by 2 hours of fighting, Crater was finally for the first time in it's establishment, was beaten by another Squadron on December 1st, 2027.
Following this defeat, Crater was finally declared world wide that they were not the demons they used to be back in the Second World War, and were just normal pilots in planes.
Dissolution & Retirement 2029Edit
After the engagement with Kaiyojo Squadron, Crater still remained active even through 2028, but mostly was used in 2029, where teh Squadron began to launch never ending air strikes against Union league forces from all around the city. Though they were able to easily sweep up the country side, teh American sand Japanese Maritime were successful in breaching the western lines and entering the firey remains of Paris.
Crater had began a clean sweep against the invaders, but Union league aircraft began to overrun the sky, even for Crater's tactics. Kaiyojo Squadron eventually appeared during the air battle and once again attacked Crater, however Crater's antics soon dwindled when New Harrison eventually shut down due to too much battle damage to his nation.
Eventually having Crater 1 in sight, Kaiyojo 2 attempts to finish him off and bring an end to Crater once and for all, but is soon shot down by Crater 5, Kaiyojo 1 eventually flies along side New Harrison's plane which is now on automatic auto pilot and tries to get his attention, eventually realizing after several failed attempts that he is not well, she quickly breaks off the engagement, and works with Crater to try and save New Harrison.
However a tragic event unfolded while she and Kaiyojo Squadron was defending New Harrison as they were returning to Germany, when Haoyojo 3 despite Eva's orders opened fired on Crater 1, Eva however steered her plane in the direction of the blast, as Kaiyojo 3 was shot down by Crater 4, and was killed in the blast, leaving both squadrons disheartened and mournful.
Despite this bad turn, the squadron continued succeed this by working together. While Crater 14 tows New Harrison's plane back to Germany, Kaiyojo 5 took over lead to the remaining planes of Kaiyojo Squadron, and managed to successfully escort Crater 14 back to Germany, where after landing, New Harrison was then placed back inside the old Reich state building and is laid down on a bed, it was from here that New Harrison was now considered paralyzed and could no longer walk.
The remaining pilots of Kaiyojo Squadron, attended to New Harrison's condition, until the arrival of Panamala Koakshi on December 24th, 2029. Crater after learning of the fall of Paris, eventually under the permission of New Harrison once again disbanded Crater, but remained along side New Harrison, where he eventually married Pan that same day.
CRATER's Tactics were known to be Aerial Warfare, along with Ground Attacks. CRATER, was eventually used for attacking Russian supplies behind their lines, and also destroying a large bulk of Soviet Aircraft in the Vicinity. In the following Months of 1943, the Soviets have lost a grand total of up to nearly 30,000 Aircraft in their territory, giving the Germans at least another advantage in sending Bomber units in to bomb Soviet positions around Stalingrad during the battle of Stalingrad.
The Soviets were repulsed by every attack that they threw at CRATER, costing the Soviet Union 2 of their most successful Squadrons, MOSCOW, and Zyma.
Things for CRATER began to change In the Dawn of 1944, when Hitler ordered Harrison to leave Eastern Europe, at last and head west to help stop the Allied Invasion of Normandy, during the year of D-Day. CRATER however never made it to the West for the 16 airplanes for the first time since their founding in 42, had been ambushed over Crimea. A group of 16 Soviet planes, with the same formation as CRATER, consisting of 8 Fighters, 4 Dive Bombers, and 4 Medium Bombers managed to prevent CRATER from passing over Crimea and entering Romania. CRATER, was defeated for the first over Crimea, mostly due to surprise attack.
CRATER As well had an air to ground rescue tactic known as Sky Wing, In which soldiers that are in need can be saved from the ground by jumping onto the wings of the 16 planes. CRATER first committed this tactic when German Squadron Ignition got shot down by Zyma Squadron in 1943, over the Soviet city of Rakov. All German pilots were rescued by both the fighters and Bombers except for one who was killed in a fire fight, before CRATER can even arrive.
CRATER's Tactics changed however when the Germans were getting Pushed back, and Hitler had ordered CRATER for the first time in the front lines to try and support the German panzer divisions as they tried to break through the Soviet lines at Kursk, only to get repulsed.
CRATER done what ever they can to aide the operation but STALIN Squadron would always interfere drawing CRATER Away from the battlefield and costing the failure of Operation Citadel at Kursk.
As the War shifted to Germany in 1945, CRATER was orders by Hitler before he shot himself to attack Soviet positions around Berlin to try and give the Rangerians time to Beam themselves off of Earth and back to Regents. After causing a large amount of Diversion The Rangerians beamed themselves out of Germany and back on Regents.
CRATER was about to fly to the West in hoping of surrendering to the Western Allies but were soon attacked once again by STALIN over, Western Berlin.
Though both sides managed to shoot each others planes out of the sky, when the War was finally brought to an end The dog fight that was taking place above West Berlin was considered a Draw, and CRATER Disbanded in the 3 days later.
CRATER has Tactics in flying in 4 different types of Aerial Formations, that are listed below. These Tactics were used in both the Second and Third World War...
Aerial RailEditAerial Rail Formation is known to be a Chin Line that CRATER would often use to get into tight spaces such as Canyons, or Mountain regions at low Altitude. This formation also makes it effective in the air as well in order for Soviet ground forces to rarely get a hold of them unless they turn around, at the same time revealing it to be like a chain swinging around in the air above.
The Formation is listed as CRATER's first ever formation, for they have done this while attempting to retreat from Olympus to Tyrus in 1943, before getting attacked by the Soviets. The Formation is done in a straight, Vertical Line with the 8 Fighters in the front, the 4 Dive Bombers in the center, and the 4 Medium Bombers in the Rear. The formation was designed in case of aerial attack. If a Squadron should try to attack from the rear they would get shot down, by the Gunners of the Ju-88's if they tried to attack from the front they would get shot down head on by the fighters, and if they tried to attack from the Center then they would get shot down from the Gunners of both the Ju-87's and Ju-88's.
Wing, was known as the main formation Of CRATER. It is known as a major air wall by the Soviet Union during the Second World War in the Easter Front. The formation was known to be a side to side Sky Barrier for Aerial warfare, in the skies above Russia. CRATER's altitude is known to be the highest due to the Wing being known as an Aerial warfare formation It was known to be the most deadliest Aerial formation in the skies during the Second World War.
The Formation is done in a Horizontal Pattern with BF-109 K-5's to the far right, and the K-4's to the Inner Right, The Ju-88's were known to be housed in the center, along with the Dive Bombers the Ju-87's in the outer left. Wing was the only formation close to Aerial Rail that CRATER has been able to be a major success in creating chaos in the skies above Russia.
Rangerian Gem FormationEditThe Rangerian Gem, was known to be CRATER's second defense formation, in both the Era's of World War's II & III. The formation was known for mostly air defense from front sides, and Rear. The Formation is made up in a close Gem shaped Tactic, for massive aerial guarding. The BF-109's of would be on the sides of both the left and right, with the K-4's to the left, and the K-5's on the right.
In the front are the Ju-87 Stucka Dive Bombers where they would often lead the way through enemy territory shooting down any IL2's that come their way with their ground based wing Gun Pods. Last but not least, the rear. The Ju-88 Medium class Bombers have the rear due to them containing turrets for defense in the back. The Medium bombers are known to be the Gem's rear defense, with Machine guns scanning the skies endlessly in CRATER's Rear, just encase Soviet, or any other air attack.
Sky Wing FormationEdit
The Sky Wing Formation, is The land ground rescue tactic conducted by CRATER In which soldiers that are in need can be saved from the ground by jumping onto the wings of the 16 planes.
CRATER first committed this tactic when German Squadron Ignition got shot down by Zyma Squadron in 1943, over the Soviet city of Rakov. All German pilots were rescued by both the fighters and Bombers except for one who was killed in a fire fight, before CRATER had the chance too show up.

The ordinance of Crater during the Second World War, consists of the most advanced Guns produced from Berlin, That had arrived from Regional Industries in the fall of 39. The 16 Planes of Crater, are armed with 2 exact parts.
- Bomb Payloads
Each one of these parts are design for patrol and ground attack Tactics. The 4 Ju-88's of CRATER are armed more with The Bomb Payloades for attack on Enemy ground, while the 4 Stuka Dive Bombers, and 8 fighters, are armored with Gun Pods for both Dog fighting and Ground attack Design, the Bf-109 side also consits of Needle Missiles that fire from the wing and can home onto any Soviet Fighter plane in it's path.
