Sasha Kalashnikov has splintered off from her father, Sergey, to form a new rogue faction-- Red Lokust. Sasha and her followers have already wiped out the Black Widow faction and now have their sight set on your base. Their assault begins on Friday, February 22.
  — Official Event Forum Thread [src]

It seems the Kalashnikov truce was short lived. Although her father Sergei has spared her life, Sasha Kalashnikov's faild coup attemp has led to her exile from the Sickle Syndicate. Satellite images indicate that she's currently roaming the wastelands with a small group of loyalist recruiting piolots and capturing enemy aircraft. Be wary, Commander - no one is safe!
  — Event Message #1 [src]

Breaking Intel, Commander: By leveraging her superior airpower to use, Sasha Kalashnikov and her small group of loyalists have overthrown and assumed control of the much lager Black Widow Rogue Faction. After the battle, Kalashnikov broadcast the following statement on all radio frequencies: "The spider is no more. The Swarm has prevailed. Join the Swarm or die."
  — Event Message #2 [src]

The World Map has changed forever! Kalashnikov has pulled together elite air units to form the Red Lokust Rogue Faction. This new terror has begun aggressive expansion in every direction. Prepare your defense, Commander - the battle begins in less than 24 hours.
  — Event Message #3 [src]

The Red Lokust are at your doorstep - will you stand up and fight? Beat back enemy attacks and show Kalashnikov she messed with the wrong base!
  — Event Message #4 [src]

Don't give up, Commander - there's less than 24 hours left to defeat the Red Lokust! Finish strong and show Sasha Kalashnikov she messed with the wrong army. Good luck!
