As we hinted at in the Crimson Command preview image, we're giving the Remnant players the ability to align with different Imperial leaders for some (pretty significant) changes to their tech and in some cases units in order to give them more options while playing, and also to work in some more of the better points of ICW. It will also have a pretty big impact on the hero choices coming in 1.1.
Once Remnant heroes and the tech trees are fully implemented, we'll have a full write-up, but the first of the possible leaders is Natasi Daala. One of her techs grants her access to the Crimson Command variant of VSD IIs, based on her canonical capture of that fleet while reuniting the Imperial Warlords.
Another of her unique aspects is the ability to potentially have two Executor-class titans active at one time, which you can see here. The choice to side with Daala comes with only one hero; her, in the Knight Hammer. Unlike other heroes, however, she has a never-say-die attitude, and can be recruited again if she dies (a function which will be unique to her) based on her tendency to not actually die and randomly pop up again.
We'll talk more about heroes in an actual news post, but you could say some will be good at flying solo. Others tend to eclipse the competition...
