FreeSpace: The Great War

Volition used Indian culture gods to designate Shivan fighter wings and Zodiac signs to designate hostile Vasudan wings.

  • Brahma
  • Vishnu
  • Shiva
  • Saraswati
  • Lakshmi
  • Parvati
  • Durga
  • Venkateshwara
  • Satyanarayana
  • Rama
  • Krishna
  • Gauri
  • Karikeya
  • Gayatri
  • Ganesh
  • Hanuman
  • Dyaus
  • Varuna
  • Indra
  • Surya
  • Savitar
  • Soma
  • Agni
  • Vayu
  • Ushas
  • 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.

Underlined wing names were used in the Main FreeSpace Campaign. The other wing names are hints for mission designers.

Silent Threat

In Silent Threat and Silent Threat: Reborn the following wing names are used for enemy GTI wings:

  • Bragi

FreeSpace 2

Volition used only Zodiac signs to designate hostile fighter wings.

  • Aquarius
  • Aries
  • Cancer
  • Capricorn
  • Gemini
  • Leo
  • Libra
  • Pisces
  • Sagittarius
  • Scorpio
  • Taurus
  • Virgo

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