Operation Castle is a personal project depicting a large scale battle to disable a vital communications array on the 3rd moon of Kimchasus IV - a key historic shipyard and weapons manufacture system for the emperor's galactic navy.
Disabling the array eventually leads to a successful foothold, and ultimate liberation of the system.
Overwhelmed, and surprised, the emperor's forces are pushed back and eventually defeated; Marking another major victory in the fight against the tyranny and oppression throughout the galaxy.
