Veterans of the Continental War, the 7th Regiment, 1st Attack Battalion "Ironsides" of the Erusean Army made a name in the airborne cavalry world with their intimidating Mi-24 'Hind' gunships. Being able to penetrate into ISAF territory and disembark troops, then to continue to support them as a CAS asset proved vital in Erusea's push across the continent of Usea.
Following the end of the war, the 7-1 would return to Erusea, participating in counter-terror operations in the country along with ISAF Forces against hold-out resistance fighters in the Country. As the reformation of the Erusean Army continued, the once ubiquitous Hind became a rarer sight, leaving the 7th as one of the final operators of the type in the country.
Osean Forces in 2019 would learn to fear the aging flying tanks, as the unit would be deployed against Osea during the Lighthouse War, and continue to support Loyalist forces in the months following.
