AW2

In Campaign/War Room, the color of player army entirely depends of which CO you use. Because of this, if you control more than one player in Campaign, you can't pick CO of the same army for both players.

Another thing in Campaign is that if one of the players loses (either by rout, HQ capture or even Yield) you'll instantly lose.



AW1 & this game:

Orange (red) unit will always present under control of Player 1 in all game modes, that's including in Campaign as well as War Room. Plus with this game additional modes such as Survivals and Combat, you'll always play as orange unit. Even if the CO in command is not from Orange Star army.

Unlike AW2, when you control 2 or 3 players in Campaign and one of them loses, you'll just get the message "The X Army is lost" just like in VS mode and the battle will still continue.

Orange army in all game modes...perhaps it's because of Orange Star COs being the main protagonist in AW1 and the leader of Allied Nations is from Orange Star army in this game.
Well, then, until we meet again. Or "if we meet again".

Now I know why I lost at that mission where I needed to rescue Sami with Eagle (-_-) and even though Orange Star army was knocked out on the first game I could still continue

Which mission? Green Earth campaign in AW2 against Adder? Sami also plays the similar role during Yellow Comet lab mission. Lose all her ships and it's instant defeat.

In AW1 during missions against Andy clone and second battle against Sturm, where there's more than one army in your side.

It would be nice that if you could get to pick color of player's army especially in Campaign so that you won't always stuck in orange army. Any color but black, especially if the COs of that army already join cause with Rachel & co.

Blue color available after Sasha & Colin join
Yellow color after Grimm & Sensei join
Green color after Javier & Jess join
Of course, no Black color even after Hawke & Lash join as they already leave Black Hole army and it's the color that the enemy uses.

Since this is Allied Nation after all, unity of all four armies. It would make sense if you get to pick your army color as well.

In AW1, which you stick with Orange Star COs for almost all portions of Campaign and you're the advisor of Orange Star army anyway. As for AW2, army color already matches the CO as each army fights alone most of their missions so that you get to play as other color as first player.
Well, then, until we meet again. Or "if we meet again".
