Located in the Companion Galaxies, the Exterior Union is populated by people wishing to begin anew. Years ago many people started migrating to the companion galaxies in secret after growing tired of the constant downfalls of alliances, republics and empires. Despite the risk of being caught by pirates or the Sith, and other dangers that awaited them ahead, they made the journey into largely unexplored space. After conflicts escalated in the main galaxy, more and more people left to colonize the companions. It didn't take long for Praxis to notice this great migration, and so he decided to help these people and use Auricom and his influence within the New Galactic Empire to supply them with food, equipment, and ships to properly explore and colonize the companions. There, they would be isolated from the troubles that the Jedi and Sith had once brought to their lives.

If there was one thing the Union lacked until now, it was a dedicated heavy bomber with enough firepower to destroy a light capital warship by itself. That objective has been attained with the revealing of the Aticus-Class Heavy Bomber. Equipped with a fearsome array of self-guiding and Target-Delaying ordnance. An entire squadron alone could defeat a frigate by themselves with all but a few volleys of their heavy missile payload. Though quite fast for a ship of it's size, they still require a small escort of interceptors to give them time to deploy their massive number of missiles, largely made up of Diamond-Boron, Ion, and Proton warheads, as well as a number of heavier torpedoes and rockets for more heavily armored ships.

Stealthed variants are known to lay in wait for pirate raiders only to make a micro-jump and attack them with a single massive salvo of missiles and torpedoes, inflicting horrendous damage and leaving before any meaningful response can be made in return.
