Gold Wing is the Sirius Coalition Revolutionary Army's regular fighter/bomber unit. Although Officially commanded by Commissar-Captain Al-Rashid, a rampant coward, the unit is really led by Commander Bjorn Thorvaldsson. Commander Thorvaldsson is noted for his extreme devotion to the revolution, and his complete lack of humour, whereas Commissar-Captain Al-Rashid is noted for never spending any time in space. The harsh work regime and low recognition of Gold Wing is rumoured to have driven some of its pilots to constant abuse of alcohol and other stimulants, but the same could be said of all Coalition forces. Lately the Wing has been handed over to Political Commissar Dmitry Dubovik.
