MediaVPs_20142) ABOUT BEM CAVALGAR
Bem Cavalgar is a campaign about Vasudan officers fighting against the Shivan invasion of their homeworld.
There is a strategic element to Bem Cavalgar. You, as Captain Senbi, have a limited amount of resources with which to fight the Shivans.
Your stock of ships and weapons is set during the introductory cutscene that plays at the start of the campaign.
Playing this mission on lower difficulties will give you a large number of ships and weapons. Playing it on higher difficulties will give you less choice in ships and weapons.
Once you have played through the introductory cutscene, you can always change the difficulty afterwards - this will not change the number of ships and weapons you have.3) CREDITS
