For the overview, the game sets in 2019 when an opposition between the Osean Federation and the Kingdom of Erusea began. This is also known as the Second Usuean Continental War. Trigger, a member of the Osean Air Defense Force, fights against the Erusea’s unmanned drones. Trigger starts out as a member of Osea’s Mage Squadron. However, he is accused of murdering the former president as he’s sent to Osea’s Spare Squadron. Osea’s Spare Squadron is a penal military unit for atonement.
