A democratic federation of states situated on a new continent, which honors science and freedom. They hold an overwhelming manufacturing and scientific force, and they possess the most powerful aerial weaponry

They continually roll out equipment and tactics fitting the current state of war while fighting, using unmanned pilot modules, wireless modules, and battle assistance modules, and they display a battle style that is harmonious and diverse, much like natural adaptation.

Check out some of the playable ship profiles below!

Enterprise

As the strongest aircraft carrier in the Eagle Union, she is known for the many battles she has won against enemies both on the ocean and in the sky. Everyone knows how powerful she is, which makes her a fantastic representative of the Eagle Union in the Joint Military Exercise. She will sacrifice herself for her allies and constantly seeks new rivals. As she has sensed something amiss during the Joint Military Exercise, she has begun investigating what is really going on behind the scenes. This has caused her bond with a certain someone to deepen over the course of this exercise.

Laffey

A member of Eagle Union. She speaks in a lethargic fashion, and is often found with a sleepy expression on her face. Most of the time, she's quiet like some small animal, but she has a very strong will, and will not let anyone get away with bringing harm to her friends. Her battle prowess is also quite impressive, and this led to the invitation for her to attend the Joint Military Exercise. She decides to participate, although reluctantly.
