Airforce Delta Strike is the third and latest installment to the Airforce Delta series.


The game plot occurs in a not specified time, but has futuristic, sci-fi weapons, planes and environments. When O.C.C. (Orbital Citizen Community), a space colony set on Earth's orbit, starts to attack the Earth to control it, E.D.A.F. (Earth Defense Allied Forces) launches a defensive campaign. After some time, E.D.A.F. sees itself almost with no forces to fight and decides to enlist any militia forces to help, including the bad-famed Delta Squadron. After that, the tide starts to turn and as the Earth forces advance, they find out that O.C.C. is not the major threat - an organization from Mars is planning to destroy Earth with the help of the orbital colony.

It is possible that E.D.A.F. is the same alliance that was born in the previous Airforce Delta series' title, Airforce Delta Storm (Xbox, 2001), so the story must happen after the year 20X7, when the Xbox version is situated.
