* TheWarJustBefore: Fifteen years prior to the events of the game, the nation of Belka raged war against the world for resources. Eventually the war turned against them with the two superpowers of Osea and Yuktobania, as well as other nations, pushing against them. After losing ground and territory rather than allow enemy forces to invade the birthplace of Belka, the Belkans dropped seven nuclear bombs between the northern and southern parts of their nation. This brought an end to the war with the allied forces claiming victory. Fast-forward fifteen years to the events that would take place over the course of the game, feeling that they were humiliated, forces within Belka orchestrated events causing Osea and Yuktobania to go to war with one another hoping it would weaken them both.

The fifth game in the ''AceCombat'' series, released in 2004, set mostly on the Osean Continent of [[ConstructedWorld Strangereal]] [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture in 2010]]. Although they have been staunch allies for 15 years, the Union of Yuktobanian Republics provokes and declares war upon the Osean Federation, conducting a massive invasion with nary a warning. The opening salvos are fired at Sand Island, an Osean training base where four cadets (or "nuggets") are on the verge of completing their training: Kei "Edge" Nagase, Alvin H. "Chopper" Davenport, Hans "Archer" Grimm, and Blaze (that's you!). Circumstances force these four to the forefront of the Circum-Pacific War where they will become the heroes known as the Wardog Squadron and, later, the Demons of Razgriz.

Meanwhile, in [[GaidenGame another story]], it has been one year since the end of the [[VideoGame/AceCombat04ShatteredSkies Usean Continental War]] and the hostilities have more or less been stopped. However, ''yet another'' group of rogue Erusian officers have vowed to keep fighting the good fight. Calling themselves "Free Erusea", they have raided an abandoned factory from the war and seized a rather large arsenal of weapons. To defeat them, the Independent State Allied Forces initiate ''Operation Katina'' -- complete and total pacification of all enemy forces. To this end, they deploy the hero of the war, Mobius One, to get the job done, with a little help, of course, from AWACS Sky Eye.

* DiscOneNuke: If you beat Arcade Mode, you can unlock the F-22 Raptor, complete with [[NoseArt Mobius One's paint job]], very early. It can give you an S rank through basically every air-to-air mission in the first half of the game, and parts of the second.



** The next game reveals that Osea as a nation all has similar pacifist leanings due to [[VideoGame/AceCombatZeroTheBelkanWar the horrors of the Belkan War]]. Specifically, [[NukeEm the seven nukes]], as well as [[spoiler: the bombing of Hoffnung]].

* TheNeidermeyer: Lieutenant Colonel Ford, the man sent from the Osean mainland to take over for [[spoiler:Bartlett after he is shot down and captured]] comes off at this. Instead of helping Wardog Squadron mop up the Yuktobonian aircraft attacking Sand Island, he opts to try and land instead. You know, while planes are ''actively bombing'' the runway. Granted, he was low on fuel, but the way he blatantly ''ignores'' the ATC denying him clearance to land due to the attack shows how full of himself he was. [[spoiler: Fortunately for Wardog, though unfortunately for him, he ends up getting shot while arguing with Chopper, leaving Blaze to take over.]]
