In 1864 American inventor Frank Stockburn invented a machine that generated a power opposite to that of gravity. His machine, called the Negative Gravity Screw was used to make the first aeronef. History changed from that date...

In 1890 following the death of his family during an Ottoman aerostat raid, Hungarian noble Baron Lantoz launched a campaign of revenge and terror on those responsible. Utilising the ingenuity of Professor Vanvlak to upgrade his flagship, the Syren, a series of raids where launched across the Aegean targeting the 3rd Akinjli Squadron and its commander Carpik Pasha.

Aeronef Over The Aegean: Wrath Of The Syren is a mini-campaign for Aeronef but can be used with other VSF flyer game systems or the protagonists changed to accommodate your own aeronef fleets with a little effort. Aeronef Over The Aegean recreates this legendary campaign as Baron Lantoz and the Syren wreak havoc across the Aegean and the Ottoman aerial fleet tries to stop them.
