1st Helicopter Unit
The 1st Helicopter Unit of the Emmerian 3rd Fleet takes part in many battles in the Emmeria-Estovakia War and assists the 28th TFS on many occasions. The commander of the unit is Richard "Yellow Jacket" Lee. All of the callsigns represent types of Insects.
2nd Strike Fighter Squadron
The 2nd Strike Fighter Squadron is part of the Emmerian Navy 2nd Carrier Air Wing, they are also members of Emmeria's Eastern Region Air Defense and were stationed at Gracemeria Air Force Base. Their leader is Freddie "Avalanche" Durand. All of the call signs represent a snow or glacial feature.

Ships of the 2nd Feet, including its flagship, were in Gracemeria bay at the onset of hostilities when Estovakian aircraft attacked the capital. The ships were responsible for engaging aerial threats over the bay while its aviation squadrons engaged targets over the rest of the city. After the first Nimbus attack destroyed Emmerian air superiority, all Emmerian forces were ordered to retreat west, including its surviving naval forces.
The 2nd Fleet would take part in the Anea landing by attacking oilfields and drawing off forces so the Quox and Warlock armoured division could land in (almost) relative safety. During the battle, Garuda Team assisted Marigold in destroying the fleet and gun emplacements that were guarding off-shore oil rig facilities, and crippled Estovakia's oil life line by eliminating the refineries on shore. Later, when the Estovakian's counterattacked, a squadron of Nimrod MR Mk.2 bombers and F-14D Super Tomcat fighters were sent in to destroy the Emmerian fleet, with Garuda Team's help, the maritime patrol aircraft were shot down.
The fleet would later support Garuda team in retaking San Loma, bombarding enemy positions and sending Estovakian ships to the ocean floor. During the operation, the 2nd Fleet faced Aegis Destroyers, UAV's and F-2A fighters armed with anti-ship missiles; the fleet had already lost the White Fang and another unnamed Destroyer, if Garuda Team had not shown up, more casualties would have been taken.
During the retaking of Gracemaria, the 2nd fleet would face the Estovakian naval units stationed in the capitol along with their fighter wings. Things may have not ended well for the 2nd fleet if Garuda had not shot down Rafale fighters and sunk the ships in the harbor; for the Aegis destroyers and a lone Battleship had the capacity to eliminate the entire 2nd Fleet. The 2nd Fleet would proceed to bombard enemy positions inside the city, and along the outer edges of the bay; supporting both the Warlock and Steel Gunners armoured divisions by taking out Estovakian howitzers and bunkers. The fleet's radar dishes would prove useful in aiding the fighter squadrons with ESM when Strigon Team leader Ilya Pasternak attempted to eliminate the entire Emmerian liberation force by using a combination of his planes missiles and unmanned drones.
The fate of the 2nd Fleet at the end of the war is unknown, but it is presumed that they were reinstated into the main Emmerian Navy.
The 2nd Fleet's strength changed from battle to battle, but the fleet did possess at least four Kirov-class Large Guided Missile Cruiser (Marigold) with one of them as its flagship, one Nimitz class Aircraft Carrier (F/A-18F Super Hornet pilot Freddie Durand is seen flying around the 2nd fleet more often; usually supporting it, so he and his squadron must have been based on that unnamed Nimitz-class aircraft carrier after the First Attack on Gracemeria), F-14D Super Tomcats, UH-9s, a handful of Cassard-class Cassard-class frigates (labelled in the game has destroyers) and Ticonderoga class AEGIS cruisers, some Whidbey Island class dock landing ships and numerous LCACs and gunboats.Changed links
