In '49, several British pilots volunteered to assist the UED with the invasion of Russia. Jonny signed on for a mission to bomb the Red Curtain. The anti-air fire was thick, and several VTOLs were shot down. Their squadron leader, Eric Hudson, led maneuvers that rescued over eighty percent of the downed crew members. Jonny worshiped him... I've been fighting, pushing back, hoping the world wasn't on the brink of some apocalypse -- the end of man. But the more shit I see, the more hope I lose... The VTOL that crashed in the trench belonged to Sqn. Ldr. Eric Hudson. I lost my hero months ago, and today Jonny finally lost his.
