After decades of war one company, who had gained powerful supplying both
sides with weaponary, steps forwards and crushes both warring factions
in one swift movement. Using far superior weaponary and AI craft, the
company was completely unstoppable and now no one can stand in their
way. Thousands began to perish under the iron fist of the company. The
people cried out for a saviour, for someone to light this dark hour...
and someone did.

o Primary and Secondary Weapons (including a laser cannon and a charge weapon)
o A weapon powerup system
o Wingmates
o Missions with Primary and Secondary Objectives
o A Variety of Missions (Protect, Destroy, etc)
o Boss battles
