Unit History

Born from Ashes

After the Indonesia-Australia War, many highly skilled Australian military personnel went into hiding around the world. With the Australian underground in place, this personnel met and then formed the DropBears.

Africa heat

Once the Indonesia-South Africa War begun, the Dropbears immediately mobilised to Austin, USA, to take advantage of the Q4 hospital and defender bonus.

The DropBears fought many battles and were recognised by their US counterparts, this battle was much needed as new recruits who hadn't fought in previous wars were raring to go.

Operation BlackLight

Operation BlackLight was the first operation fully planned and thought out. The objective was to fight for Romania in World War I to gain experience. With activity low in the unit, this war was a much needed boost for morale. With the war paused, and resuming once V1 hits, the Leader of the Dropbears closed Operation BlackLight for reasons that have not been declassified.
