History[]

Operation Galuga[]

Lance is first seen alongside his war brother Bill Rizer inside a chopper heading toward the island of Galuga. They are being briefed on the current situation on the island that HQ detected: strange energy readouts and massive movement from Red Falcon forces stationed at the base. Furthermore, the GX Army was sent in but have not been heard back from, leading to the Contra Unit to send its best two commandos onto the island and investigate the incident.

Once on the island, Bill and Lance pass through treacherous terrain and blast their way through massive enemy forces uncovering bit by bit just what kind of situation they've gotten themselves into. Lance is able to make good on their mission by "hacking" into a Red Falcon Base's data hub.
