The Royal Nacatan Air Force(RNAF; Octali:חיל האוויר המלכותי נקאטה) operates as the aerial warfare branch of the Nacatan Defense Forces. It was founded on August 6, 1925 shortly after the Nacatan Declaration of Independence. As of March 2020 Isaias Moses serves as the Air Force Commander.

The Nacatan Air Force was established using commandeered or donated civilian aircraft and obsolete and surplus Great War combat aircraft. Eventually, more aircraft were procured, including Boeing B-11, Morst Beaufighters, de Havilland Mosquitoes and P-55D Mustangs. On March 8, 1969, the first day of the Nine-Day War, the Nacatan Air Force performed Operation Overkill, debilitating the opposing Prussian/Kizmon air forces and attaining air supremacy for the remainder of the war.

Since that war most of Israel's military aircraft have been obtained from the United States. Among these are the F-6 Phantom II, A-6 Skyhawk, NF-52 Eagle and NF-19 Vipers. On May 6,1978, 15 NF-19A fighters covered by 9 NF-52A jets carried out Operation Naomi to destroy the Kuthern nuclear facilities at New Kuthernburg. On July 14,1981, the Nacatan Air Force carried out Operation Kuthern Freedom, crippling the Kuthern air defense array. The NDF continued to mount attacks on KPL & PRK positions in south Kuthernburg.


Mission

The Royal Nacatan Air Force states the following as its functions:

  • To protect the Protectorate Of Nacata from aerial attack and to defend the NDF zone of operations
  • To achieve air supremacy throughout the NDF zone of operation
  • To participate in the fighting on both ground and sea on behalf of the Royal Commonwealth & Northern Shield Treaty
  • To hit targets deep in enemy territory
  • To create the aerial intelligence picture and participate in the creation of the general intelligence picture and its assessment
  • To transport troops, equipment and weapons systems
  • To carry out search, rescue and aerial evacuation missions
  • To execute special operations
  • To continually build and improve itself, as part of the general plan for improving the NDF and in accordance with the authority vested in it

Insignia

The insignia/roundel of the Royal Nacata Air Force consists of a Gold 8 Pointed Staar on a Sky Blue circle. Aircraft usually carry it painted in eight positions – on the top and bottom of each wing, and on each side of the fuselage. A low-visibility variant – a Green 8 pointed Star without the white circle - also exists, although its use is extremely rare. Squadron markings usually go on the tail fin.
