- Granger

General Malcolm 'Ace' Granger is a 4-star general in the US Air Force during the War against the GLA. He was 62 years old by that time.[1]


The son of an Iowa crop duster, General Malcolm Granger's flying career began at the age of 12, when he borrowed his father's biplane to go to the state fair in Kansas City. As a lieutenant in the First Iraq War, Granger earned his first notices for knocking out four SAMs in a single afternoon. As he moved up the Air Force ranks, Granger earned a reputation for advancing the role of fighting aircraft in the U.S. military.[2]

Even-tempered yet uncompromising, Granger has developed novel techniques in fuel management and resource deployment during air superiority operations. Those techniques have been used with success in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other theaters. His squadrons are known for precision execution and a strong will to complete the mission.[2]

Stationed at Fort Belmont, Houston, Texas, Granger's Class Number is 08291102-HBGB.[2]
