511 Esuadrón "del Rey" (English: 511 Squadron "King's Own") is a fighter squadron in the Air Force of the Kingdom of Sapin that has seen action in the Belkan War of 1995. Its primary aircraft is the Eurofighter Typhoon, though it sometimes has been using the Sukhoi T-50 PAK FA for special operations since the 2000s.

It is technically part of the SAF Royal Wing 1, charged with defending the airspace of the Gran Rugido Military District, which included the capital city. That is where the squadron was stationed but it often operated on independent missions.

History

Foundation

The squadron is one of the oldest units of the Sapin Air Force and is usually headquartered at Gran Rugido Air Base outside of the capital, providing air defense for the city and the King's royal palace. By the 1980s it was regarded as Sapin's best fighter squadron.

Belkan War

When the Belkans began their invasion of the northern region of the kingdom in March 1995, the 511 Squadron was one of the units that responded. They engaged the Belkan Air Force in the skies of Arlon, shooting down a total of 46 Belkan fighters. In the process, the squadron lost four aircraft due to extensive damage, but none of its pilots were killed. The members of the King's Own Squadron were the most successful Sapinish pilots of the war in terms of number of enemy aircraft destroyed. When the Osean Federation entered the war and began operating the Futuro Canal area, the 511 Squadron took part in joint operations with Osean pilots.

Recent operations

The Sapinish government used the pilots of King's Own Squadron to carry out special operations to assist various allied groups fighting in different conflicts throughout the 2000s.

Awards and honors

The unit has received many Sapinish military decorations, including the title "King's Own", while its members automatically received the non-hereditary noble title of Knight. Thus the 511 Squadron's call signs were "Knight of Honor".
