Naomi O'Brian and Miyuki Haneda by Kira-Tsubasafan Naomi O'Brian and Miyuki Haneda by Kira-Tsubasafan
Color version of [link]

This is a "What if" situation based on what I wrote in my fic. In this case, this is what it would look like if 1) Naomi joins the JASDF after the manga storyline and 2) Miyuki Haneda gets transferred to another squadron along with her friends from the 801st TTS. That's why there's an F-22 and a MiG-29 in JASDF colors.

Enjoy! :)

I didn't read your fic, but I do have to wonder: How does Naomi "get off" from serving her sentence by doing high risk missions? Why would the JASDF hire her after she shot down a Japanese pilot over Tokyo (okay, he was a rouge pilot, but still)? And why would the JASDF have a Russian MiG-29, or even more rare, an F-22 Raptor which the US government has a special legislation in which the aircraft cannot be exported?
Do those question get answered in the fic?

Well, this was a while ago, but I'll try to answer the questions. The JASDF pilot was shot at by Naomi, but not enough to be killed or anything. Like it was mentioned in the story, he was found out. Later, he crashed because his ejection system was sabotaged to leave no witness of the other group's involvement.

In the original manga, it was said that 5 years would be deduced from Naomi's 1,000-year sentence for each dangerous mission she takes part in. It reminds me of Area 88 where the protagonist is buying his own freedom by earning money after each mission. In my fic, it was indicated that Naomi asked for asylum after that final mission over Tokyo, so she probably managed to keep her MiG-29 in an undisclosed location while Japanese authorities spread the rumor it was shot down.

When I wrote the fic a few years ago, there were strong rumors that the Japanese government could buy at the very least some F-22s. Even though the US government put a ban on exporting the F-22, I always felt that Japan would be better off with a few of those... although the ATD-X prototypes will make up for that soon.

Yes, that makes sense. But the Manga ends before we find out if he dies or not, so either way you choose to do it would be fine.

Hmm... I don't know if Japan would be willing to give political assylum to Naomi since her crime was terrorism. And she's a Nikkei, not fully Japanese.
But the keeping her MiG-29 does sound kind of cool, especially since Japan does their own modifications to foreign planes, like the F-4J or the F-15J, and in some cases the modifications are so much that they become brand new planes like the F-2, which is an F-16 with new avionics and wings. I wonder what a MiG-29J would be like?

If the USA allows for Japan to get F-22s, then I'm pretty sure Israel and South Korea will get them too.

Hell, why not make the 801st a TFS, makes things simplier, and have Naomi join the Airbats for the mix.

I thought about that, but the 801st was always a little short in equipment for the girls' ambitions of becoming full-time fighter pilots. Furthermore, the home base in Iruma is not the place for having tactical fighter squadrons. And besides, the later stages of Naomi's story in Red Prowling Devil happened at Hyakuri Air Base, home of the 302nd TFS and 305th TFS. I'm such a freak about facts. ;)

I'd call it a step further in career progress for everyone from the 801st. After all, since all members of the original 801st are still together, it's as if not much has changed except Naomi joining them for THAT special assignment.

Thanks!

Miyuki Haneda comes from old-school anime/manga series, 801st TTS Airbats. Naomi comes from a manga drawn and written by the same author 10-12 years ago.
