Indigo Team, officially the 51st Tactical Fighter Squadron, was a Belkan Air Force ace squadron that saw action in the Belkan War. Indigo's pilots were known for their elegant flight style and their pride in combat, which earned them the nickname "the Indigo Knights".


Though only the flight leader of the squadron had seen battle during Belka's period of expansionism, the entire Squadron was soon assigned to the eastern front during the beginning of the Belkan War. It was here that Indigo saw major success.

On March 30, 1995, Indigo engaged an enemy fighter squadron, likely the FATO Air Force's 122nd Tactical Fighter Squadron, over the FATO-Gebet Border. This engagement occurred during an operation aimed at capturing the Gebet city of Model, and within five minutes saw many of the FATO aircraft destroyed. Flight leader Dimitri Heinreich alone shot down nine F-14D Super Tomcats within five minutes of the battle's start.

Within a day, Gebet and FATO were brought under Belkan control due to the intense speed of the Belkan attacks. During these attacks the Indigo Team racked up kills en masse while facing little to no opposition.

On April 20 of that same year, the Indigo Squadron was redirected over Area B7R on their way back to base. The team's objective was to shoot down two aircraft of the Ustian Air Force conducting recon on the Round Table. Indigo was not unfamiliar with the area; however, the two aircraft overwhelmed the Belkan formation, and shot them all down. All squadron members survived the encounter, albeit Heinrich was left comatose for 3 months.



  • Notably enough, Indigo Squadron is the only ace squadron in Ace Combat Zero whose members all survived the Belkan War. Indigo 4 was killed after the war, however.
  • The Indigo emblem is similar to the emblem of the Razgriz Squadron from Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War.
