The IUN is an international organization on Strangereal.

History

By 1996, the IUN was involved in peacekeeping efforts during a standoff between FCU and Erusean forces in Ugellas and Amber. However, the FCU forces retreated on April 20, 1996 following the Ulysses 1994XF04 announcement; their retreat forced the IUN to also retreat. The IUN's retreat was notably hampered by logistical difficulties and heavy storms, preventing their retreat from fully taking place until April 22.[1]

Sometime following the Continental War, a group of Erusean rebels seized a military factory that was under the IUN's control.[2] The rebels, calling themselves Free Erusea, launched attacks across the Usean continent. The Independent State Allied Forces launched Operation Katina to quell the rebellion.[3]

After Operation Katina, ISAF squadrons–Mobius, Omega and Viper–were reformed as IUN squadrons.[4][5] In 2014, they would participate in Operation Gator Panic, where they were deployed against a resurgent Free Erusea.[6]

In 2019, the IUN played an unknown role in the Lighthouse War.[7]

Trivia

  • The IUN plays a similar role to the United Nations in the real world.
  • The Neo United Nations also played a similar peacekeeping role. Since the IUN was introduced in Ace Combat 04 promotional material, it may have acted as a retcon for the Neo United Nations.
