The 501st Joint Fighter Wing "Strike Witches" is a specialist unit comprised of several of the greatest aces of its time, as well as the first established Joint Fighter Wing.

The unit was first stationed in Britannia under the jurisdiction of the Western World Headquarters (under the command of Air Marshal Trevor Maloney) until the Liberation of Gallia, after which it was disbanded.

The unit was reformed at the order of Air Marshal Adolfine Galland and based in Romagna, on an island in the Adriatic Sea.

Following a large-scale assault by the Neuroi on the Rhine, the unit has been reformed once again to push towards Berlin.

Service History

In 1944, the 501st was focused on the defense of Britannia and the recovery of Gallia.

Around October 1944, the unit was disbanded with the liberation of Gallia.

Six months later, around the spring of 1945, the unit was reactivated and relocated to the defence of Romagna, with its HQ located on a strategic island in the Adriatic Sea. The unit was again deactivated after the liberation of Venezia.

Some months later, the 501st JFW was again reactivated after destroying a Neuroi mothership that had attacked from Karlsland.

The 501st has shot down a large number of Neuroi, and the unit's accomplishments in the Gallian and Venizian recovery operations has given its witches a status akin to living legends, one which is only aided by their individual records and achievements.
