Walnut's Air Superiority Potency (W.A.S.P)
1925 - Present Day
(Alternate History)

After World War One, the UK thought it was a good idea to make an auxiliary air force to support with smaller, lesser-known missions. They put the idea off to the side for a while, but the US came and pushed the idea since they thought it was great for them to have such support. The UK agreed and in 1925, W.A.S.P, under command of Johnson Walnut, was formed.

The 1930's

W.A.S.P wasn't given much funding due to the Great Depression at the time, therefore, they were only given aircraft and did patrol missions. However, the UK noticed that many engineers were joining W.A.S.P, only to find out it was all pilots and navigators. With a boost of the US manufacturing giant, W.A.S.P was given multiple factories in America to begin designing and manufacturing aircraft. They certainly weren't the best planes, but they managed. On April 17, 1937, loads of supplies were given to W.A.S.P by UK and France due to the nearly unstoppable Nazi Germany practically holding a knife at Europe's throat. W.A.S.P knew the message being conveyed instantly, hired new designers, trained the old designers, and went to work. Between that day and September 1st, 1939, W.A.S.P made many impressive designs, like the F-63 and PT-72. They were just in time for the first move of the deadliest, most destructive war in history...

World War II

Like America, W.A.S.P began pushing out planes at unbelievable speeds. W.A.S.P stayed as a patrol service until France fell. That's when the UK forced W.A.S.P to fight on the offensive. F-63s fought He 111s and Bf 109s alongside Spitfires and Hurricanes in the Battle of Britain. They were rarely seen, but certainly powerful.

On December 1st, 1941, the Civil Air Patrol was formed, therefore W.A.S.P never had to do many patrols for America anymore. This allowed them to focus on the offensive, and they needed that focus 7 days later at Pearl Harbor.

The Pacific War

After Pearl Harbor, W.A.S.P began developing naval fighters for support, such as the F-53 Piranha. They kept their main focus on landed based aircraft, however, since the USN already a massive fleet of F4Fs and TBFs being mobilized. W.A.S.P never really stood on the offensive in the Pacific Theatre, but they defended the islands retaken instead.

Bringing the Fight to Europe

Once Germany was done with the Blitz, W.A.S.P focused on preventing another and escorting bombers across the Dover Strait. They mainly stuck to using F-63s since it was available in decent numbers, but they started switching to F-51 Coyote Mk Is, which was a faster and newer aircraft recently being produced. The F-51 and F-63 were the main fighters made by W.A.S.P during the rest of the War.

D-Day

W.A.S.P was, of course, one of the many services forced into focusing on the secretive upcoming operation. W.A.S.P focused on making different types of air-to-ground aircraft to use since they knew that ground attack was going to be vital. They built a few models like the NGA-75 Hammerhead or GA-89 Fireball, and also submitted an idea to Hawker back in 1940, which later became the Hawker Dragon.

W.A.S.P mainly participated in air-to-ground attack and bomber escort until the end of the war in 1945.

After the War

When WWII was over, W.A.S.P focused on jet technology. Their first jet fighter was made and known as the F-49 Pelican, and things took off from there. Later on, W.A.S.P divided into two different types of designs; prop aircraft and jet aircraft. This still continues today.

The Cold War

America saw that W.A.S.P was capable of developing reasonably good aircraft and wanted them to develop an aircraft that could beat supersonic fighter jets by the Soviet Union. After some time, W.A.S.P answered the call with the F-43 Ventura. This was to beat the MiG-15s and MiG-17s until the F-86 Sabre took over. When MiG-19s began rolling out into the air, the F-43 upgraded to the Mk IV, armed with flares and AIM-9 Sidewinders. This was the interceptor that could save bombers and friendly land. The only action they saw though was a support role in Vietnam since most were stationed in Greenland to intercept Soviet bombers and possibly even missiles.

Operation Iraqi Freedom/The Present Day

Now, W.A.S.P is the main service for support on the battlefield. They don't need big attention from the media, they just want the job done. They use a variety of light attack aircraft, fighters, interceptors, and bombers to do things right. What W.A.S.P has done best though, it's their experimental program. With cutting-edge designs like the XB-172 Comet or smaller, more efficient designs like the A-55 Predecessor Mk II, they have solidified their place in the future as the best assistant service.

W.A.S.P has also moved up and out of the clouds as well
"In the Modern Day, the sky is no longer the limit, for the Final Frontier awaits above the clouds."
