Standard strategy doctrines guide the sequence of steps in every Zerkalo Bloc invasion. The first wave is led by brute force mecha that carve out a “landing zone” in the new dimension. When a relatively safe area is established, the leaders of the expeditionary forces arrive. These forward command and control mecha are not only staffed by expert pilots who understand combat on a massive scale, but they also command staff to plan the specifics of the invasion from a forward position. For such a formidable war as the Monsterpocalypse, the high command decided that their most decorated machine and crew would return to active service to ensure a great victory.
