Search and Rescue[]

These missions are used to rescue soldiers in downed areas deemed as "HNZ", or "Hostile No-Man's Zones". If an air rescue is deemed impossible or will take a long time small aircraft will be deployed to direct the soldiers to the safest area to hold up until a rescue is deemed possible.

Air Sovereignty[]

All aircraft flying into HNZ are deemed as sovereign territory of the Republic. Should they land in a nearby HLZ the following one-fourth sq km is deemed temporary sovereign base territory of Superior until either the aircraft leave or the area turns into an actual territory.

While this has not happened to date, soldiers are trained for the event they encounter other aircraft in flight.
