The Aigaion's history is largely shrouded in mystery. However, it is known that a substantial number of Belkan military personnel defected to numerous other nations after the war in 1995; one was Lorenz Riedel, one of the Belkan Federation's top aces, who defected to the Federal Republic of Estovakia in the aftermath of the war in 1995, bringing with him top-secret information of and blueprints for a massive aeria vehicle, known as Project Pendragon.
The Aigaion owes its beginnings to Professor Anton Kupchenko, one of Belka's most brilliant and imaginative minds and progenitor of the XB-0 Hresvelgr (Hellbringer) superheavy multipurpose airborne combat system (SMACS), which goes back to the 1970s in concordance with Belka's national defense program. After the Hresvelgr was destroyed and the war was lost to the Osean allied forces, several dozen Belkan aces and other military personnel emmigrated to other countries, among them Lorenz Riedel, one of Belka's most distinguished aces. Together with Estovakia's technolgical geniuses, they set about creating Project Pendragon. The project included blueprints for an aircraft of absolutely gargantuan proportions. So immense were the material demands that many of the individuals chosen to help build the mammoth flying machine thought it was impossible to complete, arguing that attempting something on such a scale would deplete Estovakia's dwindling reserves of raw materials. However, the Generals tolerated no disagreement and met it in the most severe fashion. After those who proclaimed the project impossible were disposed of, work began in 2001.
