- "Well, then, let's have some fun."
- ―Bernhard Schmidt, First Battle of B7R
Bernhard Schmidt was a member of the Belkan Air Force. Known as the "Night Owl" for his distinctive ability to read the tide of battle, he was notorious for his "rule breaker"-type attitude, but remained an indispensable component in the BAF.
Bernhard was born in 1965 in the suburbs of the city of Sudentor. Being born in a "safe" environment, he lived his adolescence as a rebel, coming in an out of poor jobs and being low on money.
During his youth, Bernhard heard a patriotic speech from a street corner. Later on, in 1990, the Democratic Liberal Party of Belka took over, leading a patriotism-motivated Schmidt to join the Belkan Air Force. Having joined the Air Force, he quickly stood out compared to other students, being able to quickly analyze and predict the situation in the battlefield. In March 21, 1994, Bernhard launched in a combat sortie, where his F/A-18C Hornet suffered severe damage. Despite this impedement, he struggled and eventually shot down a hostile F-15C Eagle, a testament to his survivability on the battlefield.
In April 20, 1995, Bernhard and his Grun Squadron launched in a sortie towards the famed Area B7R, "the Round Table", after receiving reports that two mercenaries from Ustio were wreaking havoc on the local forces. Expecting the situation to have been controlled by the time he arrived to B7R, he could not believe that the Belkan pilots in the area had been overpowered, since the BAF is famous for its professional pilots. A battle ensued, and the entire Grun Team was shot down. After the incident at the Round Table, Schmidt returned to the front lines, continuing to fight the Allied forces until the end of the war in June 1995.
Looks like you Ustio mercenaries made the wrong choice.
All Grun units. Set ejection handles to green.
Those bastards. All planes. Its time to get serious.
Dammit! Both of 'em know what they're doing.
