The Final Squadron protocol launches a swarm of Sunburst Drones at the target location. These hard to shoot down drones will strafe any units and structures along the way before crashing into the target location. Final Squadron is best combined with the Honorable Discharge upgrade, which vastly increases the damage done. A Final Squadron Omega strike combined with Honourable Discharge can destroy a Construction Yard or a Superweapon.
Final Squadron is available in 3 levels, each level substantially increasing the countdown timer and damage done. The 3 levels are:
- Final Squadron: Calls in 5 Sunburst Fighter Drones to crash into the target location. Causes light to moderate damage.
- Final Squadron X: Calls in 10 Sunburst Fighter Drones to crash into the target location. Causes moderate to heavy damage.
- Final Squadron Omega: Calls in 15 Sunburst Fighter Drones to crash into the target location. Causes heavy to very heavy damage.
The Sunburst Drones are difficult, but not impossible to shoot down. To counter Final Squadrons with minimum casualty, commanders need a large group of anti-air units with fast rate of fire, such as Bullfrog transports, Jet Tengus, Hydrofoils or Apollo Fighters. Shot down Sunburst Drones do not trigger the Honorable Discharge upgrade upon destruction. A tactically placed beam of Magnetic Satellite can pull the passing drones into space, completely neutralizing their threat.
