Welcome to Anvil Squadron, convict. Not sure what you're doing here? I'll make it simple.
As atonement for your crimes, and in recognition of your prior service, your sentence has been outsourced to the Allegiant Combat Enterprises corporation. So until you've repaid your debt to society, you fly for us. And we fly for whoever can afford to foot the bill, no questions asked.
If you want out, you've got three options. Number one, survive and serve out your term. Number two, step out of line, and we kill you. Number three, earn enough credits to buy out your contract. Each bandit you splash earns you credits, but don't forget, no freeloaders in this outfit! We'll provide the wings, but ammo, upgrades, and repairs come out of your own pocket.
Think you've got what it takes to make it out alive? It's possible, but I have my doubts. You're in for the duration, convict. Get used to it.
