Bryce Canyon was assaulted by the Chimeran Fleet on May 15th, 1953. The Bryce Canyon Tower was activated by Daedalus becoming one of the initial towers in the country channeling a beam of energy.
Chimeran Attack for the TowerEdit
When the Chimeran Fleet invaded the US, they invaded Bryce Canyon to activate the tower, Daedalus led the invasion and successfully managed to activate the tower.
Doctor Fyodor Malikov and his research team were stationed at SRPA Station Genesis and were stuck in the invasion. Malikov's escort, Yankee Company, were killed in the attack, most being transformed into Grims by Spinners. X-Ray Squad managed to be there too somehow, it's unknown if they were just stationed there or came to aid the others.
When Lieutenant Nathan Hale heard about the invasion, he took a VTOL to Bryce Canyon with five members of Victor Company. Major Richard Blake ordered Hale to make his way to the nearest inhibitor station, but Hale refused.
Upon arrival at Bryce Canyon, Hale and Victor Company made it through to Station Genesis. Then X-Ray Squad radioed them in on Emergency Channel Two requesting support, so Hale and Victor Company made it over to their position. Hale and Victor Four attempted to flank the Chimera and managed to do so with Victor Four being killed. After the Chimera were all killed, Hale and the rest of Victor Company infiltrated SRPA Station Genesis leaving X-Ray Squad behind.
Hale and Victor Company eventually came across The Swarm which eliminated the rest of the Victor Company units with him. Hale managed to escape and link up with Malikov. They killed The Swarm and escaped SRPA Station Genesis. Sentinel Team Haymaker came to extract them but was shot down by Titan fire, Echo Team arrived soon after and extracted them.
