Free Nations troops invade a Salvation colony.
There are 4 factions at war:
- the Drone Unity
- the Free Nations
- the Salvation
- the Wyr
The key to galactic supremacy is to control planet resources. Factions build planet colonies to extract resources. These colonies are under constant assault from enemy forces. You will be recruited for these planet invasion missions, in which you travel by drop ship to assault an enemy colony. In these missions, your invasion force usually includes 20 troops, which must destroy the entire enemy colony and all defenses.
Colonies are heavily defended by:
- flier bombers
Additional troops spawn from buildings when they are destroyed.
