Role in Vanduul Conflict
The engineers at Anvil Aerospace were among the civilian workers who indirectly helped UEE endeavours during its conflict with the Vanduul. Enemy craft like the Vanduul Scythe had obvious combat and research applications, but were unusable by human pilots thanks to their alien design. Anvil helped repurpose some of these ships for human use, giving the Empire a chance to use Vanduul weaponry against its creators.
