The Battle of Neptune - Director's Cut
Operation Fortune is beginning to unravel. Defections paralyse the GTVA 14th Battlegroup as the true nature of the reunion is laid bare.

Scattered reports of inter-dimensional space travel cause panic throughout the GTVA Security Council, as it now finds itself at war with the United Earth Federation.

Fly as Ensign Callum Rahman, a rookie pilot aboard the GTD Meridian, as Admiral Cyrus Severanti leads the vanguard of the GTVA in an operation to seize Neptune.Experience the first major battle of the War in Heaven through GTVA eyes for the first time. The final version of the mission first glimpsed here.

Original Features:

- All new intelligence data developed by the GTD Meridian's Intelligence Cell. Understand the war as a young GTVA pilot would have.

- New HUD warning and missile lock tones taken from modern fighter aircraft.

- Ability to activate HUD Radar Icons thanks to the work of Svedalrain, Lafiel, and MitoPL.

- Advanced Field Artillery Tactical Data System (AFATADS). Call for Trebuchet fire from GTVA heavy assault wings on UEF gunships. Inspired by real-life targeting and infra-red guidance software.

- Checkpoints! Courtesy of Admiral MS and Goober5000's script.

- Glossary of military terms. Available from Tech Room->Database->Intelligence.

Director's Cut Features:

- Full voice acting, featuring 34 different voice actors. Focus on flying your fighter through one of the biggest battles of the war as your radio blares with target calls, missile launches, and the screams of those who die trapped in their cockpits.

- Bonus content. Experience the impact of sustained combat with an additional bonus mission.

- Nameplates for all of the capital ships, thanks to Colt.

- Hull repair mechanic. Take advantage of the tireless work of the GTVA flight deck crew and land to repair your hull mid-mission. Concept thanks to Battuta.
