FreeSpace: The Great War

Volition used Hindu deities to designate Shivan fighter wings and Zodiac signs (see below) to designate hostile Vasudan wings.

  • Brahma
  • Vishnu
  • Durga
  • Rama
  • Krishna
  • Indra
  • Arjuna
  • Deva

Volition's individual mission designers each seemed to have their preference with regard to Shivan wing names; some used Rama to refer to light fighters, Indra and Durga to refer to bomber wings, and/or Vishnu and Krishna to refer to Basilisks; others used no naming system. These conventions were not consistently applied, and can not be taken as entirely canon.

Silent Threat

The names of figures from Norse mythology are used to designate the wings of the GTI in Silent Threat and Silent Threat: Reborn.

  • Scald
  • Skadi

Volition used only Zodiac signs to designate hostile fighter wings, regardless of which faction they belonged to.

  • Aquarius
  • Aries
  • Cancer
  • Capricorn
  • Gemini
  • Leo

  • Scorpio
  • Taurus

A mission designer need not follow this naming system, although this system is very common among mission designers.
