Campaign Walkthrough Next Mission



MISSION 1

Fighter squadron: 222nd Nightwolves

Description: The Sol Expeditionary Force, under Admiral Bei Wen Jian, prepares to jump through the Sol Gate and re-establish contact with humanity's long-lost blue planet: Earth.


Background

In the wake of the second Shivan incursion, an economically and philosophically shattered GTA focused its energies on a single mammoth undertaking - the return to Earth. As the Vasudans prospered and flourished, mankind clung to the hope that a return to Terra might usher in a new golden age.

That dream now stands on the threshold of realization. After a series of classified probe deployments into Sol, the 14th Battlegroup, under the ultra-modern GTD Orestes, has been ordered to establish formal contact.

Walkthrough

This mission is a cutscene.
