The OFS Buzzard was an Osean Hubert-class aircraft carrier of the Osean Maritime Defense Force. It, along with its sister ships, the Kestrel and the Vulture, comprised the 3rd Osean Naval Fleet's carrier strike group.

History

Main article: Operation Whalebird

The Buzzard's whereabouts at the outbreak of the Circum-Pacific War remain unknown. However, the carrier survived Yuktobania's initial blitz attacks, and on September 30, 2010, the Buzzard rendezvoused with the Kestrel and Vulture at Eaglin Straits in an effort to mount a counterattack against Yuktobania.[1]

As the Buzzard and its sister ships passed through the narrow straits, they fell under attack by Yuktobanian carrier-launched fighters. Although it survived the initial aerial assault, the Buzzard suffered a direct hit from the Scinfaxi's burst-missile attacks and rapidly sank, resulting in a significant number of Osean casualties.[2]
