Silo overlook

The Silo was a sector of the Sovereign Colonies' Facility Two on Tau Volantis. It was the main entrance to the Alien City, located below the compound to the east. The entrance to the Silo was located right next to the Geology Sector entrance.

The Silo was used to deliver artifacts from the Machine up to the surface as well as to bring personnel down to the Machine with the use of an elevator platform.

The Silo was made up of multiple platforms built on the side of a huge elevator shaft. The platforms are equipped with heavy machinery such as massive cranes used to bring up the artifacts. Some platforms are used as storage areas for the artifacts, munitions or equipment.

A security checkpoint was located between the Geology Sector and the Silo courtyards. The checkpoint was secured behind huge blast doors. The main room had a control panel with multiple security monitors isntalled above. The room also had a shelf and a chalkboard.

Silo Courtyard[]

A courtyard such as the one next to the Geology Sector was located at the front entrance of the Silo. The courtyard was used as a temporal warehouse of artifacts. General Mahad killed Caufman, purged the Codex of its information and committed suicide in the courtyard. After Scenario Five, the courtyard was filled with hung corpses of the S.C.A.F personnel.
