Actions

The 70th Blue Lions, as an elite squadron used the most advanced ships and weapons. They flew the GTF Erinyes and were among the few squadrons to have permission to use the UD-8 Kayser laser gun and the Infyrno warhead.

News about the number of Shivan juggernauts were surfacing when the Blue Lions assisted the Evacuation of the 3rd Fleet headquarters at Vega. The pilots performed admirably and saved both evacuation transport and the GTD Messana. The station had to be self-destructed after all personnel were taken on-board the Messana.

After, the evacuation of the whole Capella system started. The Blue Lions escorted the civilian vessels, among them a medical ship. The mission was successful.

There was little time to complete the evacuation, so the GTVA had to keep the jump nodes leading outside safe. The GTVA Colossus and the remnants of the 3rd Fleet blockaded the jump node leading to Vega. It happened in this mission where the GTVA Colossus was destroyed despite all the feats of the 70th Blue Lions, there was nothing to be done.

It is no wonder this Elite squadron received the task to defend the GTD Bastion so that the destroyer could seal off the jump node leading to Vega. The mission succeeded, but when Capella became a supernova, only a very few pilots escaped, some of them were of the 70th Blue Lions.
