In a desperate war against the mysterious alien race known as the Bydo, humanity sends wave after wave of fighters into Bydo space -- none of which are ever heard from again. Mankind's main hope now resides with a lone commander, sent to lead a small armada on a perilous mission into the heart of the Bydo Empire. Low on fuel and forced to scavenge resources and equipment from his surroundings, the commander must use all his cunning and wits if he hopes to succeed, let alone make it home alive.
Take control of an array of fighters, warships, scout vessels, craft modules, and other essential tools in your war against the Bydo Empire.
ACHILLES: As the R-Series went into mass production, an obvious flaw emerged: its melee capabilities were severely lacking. To balance this weakness, development began on a line of bipedal modules. The first of these was the Achilles, a unit equipped with multiple beam swords.
Space Corps intelligence on the Bydo is limited, but there are some Bydo organisms it has discovered hard data on.
CANCER: These are typically seen in small corridors, impeding smooth passage forward. Their mobility is low, but they are still proficient in traversing various types of terrain. Its strong points are its close-range blocking and ramming abilities. Stay out of their combat range and attack them from a distance.
- Multi-Hex Units
Some units are so formidable that they take up a sizable amount of space on the battlefield. These titans not only provide safety to their allies, but they can also overpower the enemy.
NIDHOGGR: Unlike the veteran Heimdall, the Nidhoggr is a cutting-edge destroyer. Though it is incapable of docking other units, its heavy offensive capabilities are unmatched. Its special Desynch Shot can even penetrate into desynch space to crush any foes.
