Let's confirm the mission.

Intercept the large unidentified squadron closing in on us here at the Hejde Arsenal, and prevent any incursion of the construction dock.

Judging from their attack, their squad appears to be centered around several Normals, and demonstrates both experience and strong organization.

Both quantity and quality tell us this isn't just any armed group. You'll have to tread carefully out there.

Those are your orders.


The player begins the mission inside the Hejde Arsenal, and is tasked with intercepting the enemy incursion forces before they reach the docks. The enemies will enter the facility through various access points, allowing them to easily bypass the player. Because of this, the player must pay attention to the special minimap provided for this mission, which indicates the positions of both the player and the enemy forces relative to the construction docks. If even one enemy unit makes it to the docks, the mission is failed. The mission in considered a success once all of the enemy invasion forces are destroyed.

Hard Mode Differences: The enemy forces are more numerous and more aggressive at taking the docks. On several occasions, enemy units will drop from gaps in the ceiling, allowing them to enter the facility much closer to the docks. Several gatling-armed assault vehicles are also present, and move considerably faster than the Normals and MTs.
