The Usean Rebel Forces were an organised rebel force mainly comprised of soldiers opposing Osean influence on the Usean Continent.[1][2]


Main article: Usean coup d'état

Initial stages

Following the treaty signing between the southern Usean countries and the Osean Federation, hostilities towards the southern nations from northern and western territories quickly grew.[3]

On May 30, 1997, the Usean Rebel Forces, formed as a result of the treaty, launched a large-scale rebellion across the Usean Continent. The Usean Allied Forces, who were taken by surprise, were forced to retreat to the west.[4]

As the rebels's power grew rapidly, several military units defected to the rebel forces, such as the Federal Erusea Air Force's Albireo Squadron and the Usean 2nd Fleet.[5] All forces were consolidated into armed branches bearing the prefix USEA Unified (USEA Unified Navy or USEA Unified Air Force). 

Operation: Fighter's Honor

In order to increase their military strength, the Usean Allied Forces initiated "Operation: Fighter's Honor" and hired the mercenary Scarface Squadron to combat rebel forces across the continent.[3]

On March 20, 1998, the Usean Rebel Forces dispatched a number of bombers to Twinkle Islands level the Allied base located there. As a response, Phoenix, Scarface Squadron's leader, was sent on his first official sortie to shoot down the incoming bombers. At this point, the Usean Allied Forces began to turn the tide of the war in their favor.[6][7]

Later engagements

In the following months, the rebels began to lose territory at an alarming rate. Key installations, such as The Keep and Turntable, were destroyed. As the war progressed, the Usean Allied Forces pushed the rebel forces back eastwards.[1][2]

The Usean Rebel Forces ultimately made a last stand at North Point, where they would launch an ICBM from Fortress Intolerance as a last ditch effort towards the Union of Yuktobanian Republics in the hopes of sparking worldwide conflict as a result, and escape from the chaos.[8]

On September 18, 1998, the rebel forces defended Fortress Intolerance from the incoming Scarface Squadron, but failed as the latter destroyed the ICBM from within the fortress, ending the Usean coup d'état in Allied victory.[9][8]
