Rabu's forces flying over Japan.

Rabu is a fictional country and main antagonistic force from Carrier Air Wing.


Rabu is a Middle-Eastern country, whose purported goal is to purge the world of sin and impose a new morality. Having designed many advanced weapons in secrecy, Rabu has made many allies and quickly took over the Middle-East by 1997. Thanks to their powerful weaponry, they're able to spread their influence over southern Asia and portions of Europe. By 1999, Rabu's forces finally reach Japan and launch a devastating attack over Tokyo, intending to take over the country.

Fearing that Rabu would become unstoppable if allowed to use Japan's advanced manufacturing facilities, USA finally decides to intervene in the conflict. The U.S. Navy dispatches the USS Carl Vinson carrier, whose captain sends three of his best pilots to intercept Rabu's forces before japan is taken over.

The three U.S. Navy pilots successfully liberate Japan, being then sent to destroy Rabu's main weapon manufacturing facilities in the Middle-East. Rabu eventually attacks the U.S. Navy's forces in the Mediterranean, but are pushed back by the pilots, who are then sent after Rabu's secret base. After their base is destroyed, Rabu launches a rocket carrying a powerful satellite said to be capable of hitting any target on Earth, so the pilot's final mission is to intercept the rocket before the satellite is put into orbit.

The U.S. Navy pilots manage to destroy the satellite, putting an end to Rabu's plans. With all of their weapon facilities having been destroyed, they are forced to withdraw their forces and surrender.
