Wings (not to be confused with ''VideoGame/WingsOfDawn'', is a GameMod for ''VideoGame/FreeSpace2'' set in a completely different universe, a TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture scenario centered around [[WorldWarWhatever a fourth World War]] in the year 2145. The world's nations have coalesced into a handful of [[SpaceFillingEmpire massive superpowers]] after the devastating events of WorldWarIII a century earlier. In Russia an [[PatrioticFervor aggressive nationalist party]] has come to power and seeks to regain Eastern European states that were once part of UsefulNotes/TsaristRussia and [[SovietRussiaUkraineAndSoOn the Soviet Union]]. The problem is, these territories are now part of the [[UnitedEurope European Union]], which controls the most powerful military in the world and has the United States as its ally. The Russians enlist the help of the [[MiddleEasternCoalition Pan-Arab Coalition]] with the promise of giving them Palestine (which has existed under an uneasy peace as a European Union member for the past 50 years or so). While the Russians and PAC set out to take a bite out of the European Union, Earth's various space colonies have decided they've had enough of meddling Earthers telling them what to do and have formed [[LaResistance the Spacer Commonwealth]]. The nations of Earth are rather displeased about this, and you just know it will get ugly.

* FragileSpeedster: The Eurofighter Sigurd, although its forte is maneuverability rather than speed. The [=MiG=]-141 "Flashman" has the Speedster, but its weakness is lack of maneuverability rather than fragility.

* OldSchoolDogfighting: Hypersonic ammunition and anti-G-force phlebotinum allowing the HighSpeedMissileDodge to become ubiquitous have restored guns to primacy in aerial combat. Missiles still have their place though, especially at long range.
