Dog Fighters is the Space Deadly Alliance and the team member of Galactic Alliance. They're the Alien-like Dogs from Planet Canid and finest air squadron and commandos of the Galactic Air Force, fighting against General Serpine and his Canid Syndrome Air Forces.
The Early Days
Captain Shepard "Hunter" Raymond and Captain Walker "Falcon" Weskerson are the two best ace fighter pilots that Canidian Planetary Air Force has to offer. They both graduated at the same academy and they got into separate ways.
During the first day of their career, Captain Raymond was one of last members of the Retriever Squadron when he was attacked by air pirates after their mission was completed. But when his fighter jet was severely hit and ejected himself, he accidentally parachuted down into the trenches between the borders but this is the first time when he fought a lone Canidian Syndrome Warrior and learned one thing for all the pilots: survival.
Soon after the civil war is over, Captain Raymond was promoted and chose to lead his new squadron, consisted with special ace pilots and commandos.
Two Squadrons are better than one
Captain Raymond has become the leader of the Red Squadron known as the Rovers and they were sent into war on the Canidian Syndrome Invaders in the troubled colonial region on Planet Cerberus with the assistance of the Blue Squadron,the Blue Streak, led by his friend, Captain Weskerson. The two squadrons battled together as they've carried out their successful missions, taking out the enemy defenses, repelled the invaders, and route out the Invaders, from air to their boots on the battlefield.
Their names and fame were spread like wildfire in the sky as they defeated the ruthless Felisian Air Forces during the battle of Planet Mus; crushed the Syndrome insurgency at Planet Crocodillia; and eradicated the pirates at the war-torn colonial moon on Planet Lupus.
The two closed-friends are getting along very well because Captain Weskerson also chosen to lead his new squadron after he rescued the refugees behind the trenches of war zone. It seems they shared the same common things in the past.
Into the Planet of Packs
Six months later, when they received the distress signal from the desert planet of Den, the two squadrons were sent into investigate the source and verify the signal. But when entered Planet Den's airspace, they were ambushed by unknown enemy anti-air guns but they managed to dodge the bullets and eliminated the threat down below.
But with their fighter jets damaged, they decided to go investigate the location of the distress signal in the valley by foot until they discovered horrified and bloodied battlefield where dead warriors of two sides, one is from the Syndromes and the other is from the Wolfhound Tribe and Bulldog Tribe. As they were looking for the source of the signal, they found a survivor from the Wolfhounds and helped him up then begin searching any survivor they can find. After they found few survivors and brought them to the shelter, they were told by them that the signal was meant to force them to lure the squadrons into a trap; even worse, it was the plan of the Canidian Syndrome Invaders' leader, General Harrok "Parvo" Serpine. What they were up is the squadrons are going to find out at the Valley of the Packs where the answer might be there.
On the next day after they sent the message to the Planetary Air Force, they travelled to the Valley of the Packs in warriors' outfit to find the answer while keeping on low profile. When they arrived, they were amazed when they saw all the tribal packs were gathered while some were living there as their home for very long time. Then they saw somebody acting suspicious and heading to the tavern where the Wolf Pirates are gathered there while the hooded tribesmen are heading back to their hideout so they're going to follow them by splitting up into teams: Captain Raymond and Captain Weskerson are following the hooded tribesmen; the Red Squadron members, Sport, Sparrow, Rough, Blitz, Exile, Shag, Muzzle, Fluffy, Spot, and Snuggle, are going to find the two tribes to get help; and the Blue Squadron, Ace, Polo, Mirage, Pitbull, Reinaert, Scuba, Fixer, Scavenger, Marco, and Coyote are going to the tavern to infiltrate the suspicious location.
The Red Squadron are searching around at the main square to find the two tribes that they were involved war against the Syndromes but they have no luck until they found information from one of friendly tribal warriors. They were told that they were hiding in the canyon walls, further away from the square, and followed the signs of red and blue footprint of the Wolfhound and the Bulldog. As they found them, they saw them scared, weaken, and feared by General Serpine's ambitions as well refused to fight back due the small numbers of fighters and lack of fighting spirit. However, the Red Squadron helped them and trained few of volunteers from the Wolfhounds and Bulldogs in order to get them fight back and they did. The Red Squadron finally found some fighters for their need of assistance. The Blue Squadron found the tavern where they followed him but it's heavily guarded by the wolfs pirates; only wolfs may enter the tavern and Scavenger is the only one who can pass by the guards while the others infiltrated the back of the tavern. Scavenger entered inside the tavern without any incident and saw the suspicious wolf pirate warrior then he followed him. Meanwhile, the Blue Squadron have entered the back of the tavern and discovered the stockpiles of weapon caches, using for personal wars. As they knocked out the wolf pirate soldier, Coyote uses his disguise and he and Mirage went to help Scavenger while others are snooping around to uncover their evil plan. And just in time, Coyote helped Scavenger to gain access while Mirage uses his psychic charm to manipulate her foes as well buying time to uncover their plan. They followed one wolf pirate to the meeting room while knocking out the guards until they overheard about their evil plan: they're going to eradicate all of their enemies and seizing over every tribes' homeland in the planet and transforming into a dictatorship. And just before they were about to escape when they were compromised, they captured the wolf pirate they followed by force and fought their way out in a gun fight. But lucky for them, Mirage manipulated the pirates and causing them into a bar brawl then she regrouped with her allies. Even better, as they were fighting the pirates off, friendly reinforcements from the Red Squadron have arrived to help them and escaped to their ships at the valley where they've interrogated the wolf pirate with his connection of General Serpine. And finally, Captain Raymond and Captain Weskerson have located the hooded warriors' hideout at the caves but not only a cave that they've entered, it was a military-made structure around the valley. They've infiltrated the base and discovered a massive fighter jets inside the hanger with unconventional weapons such as chemical weapons and laser-based super weapons. As they sneaked to the command center, they encountered the Syndrome leader, General Serpine, and his second-in-command, Greena "Groomer" Felan. Before they were about to capture them, the Syndrome base was attacked by the Wolfhounds and Bulldogs warriors, guided by the Red and Blue Squadrons, as well the other tribes of the valley. Although they failed to capture them, they did to foil their scheme by destroying their half of fighter jets in the hanger, kill or capture the Syndrome soldiers, disrupting unconventional weapons.
With the valley is liberated, the Squadrons returned to their base to report the situation.
Operation Dawn of Dogs
After the details was given to the Planetary Air Force, the Squadrons have a new mission. Their mission was to defeat General Serpine and his army of Syndrome Air Force in the Inner Rings where the Galactic Alliance is defending Planet Mus, Planet Aves, and Planet Catus and capture their leaders.
The battle was fierce and hard but they managed to push them back from where they belong on each planet. After defending Planet Catus and defeated Felan, they battled the Syndrome Air Force in space then raided General Serpine's capital ship and fought their way in by foot after they landed on the hanger bay and jumped out from their jets. Corridor after corridor, they've secured each vital point to weaken the capital ship's defenses and capture every sector in it and they've reached the bridge where General Serpine is expecting the two captains. Captain Raymond was challenged by his nemesis in a one-on-one intensive light-sword fight while the others are holding the remaining Canidian Syndrome forces off. But then, Captain Raymond slipped off to the floor and was about to be defeated but Captain Weskerson saved and they fought against General Serpine in two-on-one battle then defeated and captured him as they forced him to surrender and end the war.
With General Serpine and Felina in custody, the Red and Blue Squadron returned their home planet to a Heroes' Welcome. The squadrons were rewarded with Medal of Honor, Bravery, and Valor for their incredible aerial and ground combat experience, and dubbed the united squadrons "Dog Fighters". They shall be remembered by all as they fly over the stars and defending any hostile forces in the galaxy.
On December 21, 2012, the Dog Fighters was involved to defeat the Monarchs for saving the Earth from being conquered and helped the Deadly Alliance. After the Monarchs' defeat, they received contacts from Area 51 and headed there. When they arrived, it was the Galactic Alliance who contacted them and were joined the UN-GDI as part of the Deadly Alliance after being thanked for saving the planet.
