Colonel Andrei Markov is the main antagonist of Ace Combat: Assault Horizon. Markov is an ex-pilot of the Russian Air Force, having received the title "Hero of the Russian Federation" for his valiant efforts. He always flies an aircraft painted with a distinctive design of a shark's mouth, earning him the nickname and callsign "Akula".
In retaliation for the death of his wife, Krista Yoslav, during a U.S. bombing raid, Markov swore revenge against the United States of America. He left the Russian military to form a rebellion group with the purpose of developing and using a massive superweapon against the United States.
In January of 2016, Markov attempted to drop the superweapon Trinity onto the White House in a final act of vengeance, but Colonel William Bishop killed him and destroyed the weapon before it could cause any major damage.
