- ― Footpad engaging an Arsenal Bird
On May 17, 2019, he was once again deployed alongside Golem and Mage squadrons in Operation Eastern Wind. During the operation, he assisted the IUN in recapturing Scofields Plateau from the Erusean Forces stationed there. After sufficient damage was caused to the airbase, he subsequently engaged the multiple MQ-99s that were deployed.
Almost two weeks later, he participated in Operation Dual Wielder, which aimed to secure air superiority over the Chopinburg Rainforest. During the operation, the IUPF squadrons were engaged by an Arsenal Bird which forced them to retreat. While on the retreat, Footpad failed to prevent his squadron member, Brownie, from being killed by Mihaly A. Shilage.
On June 6, after Trigger successfully infiltrated the radar network and weakened the anti-air defences surrounding the International Space Elevator, Footpad arrived alongside Golem, Gargoyle, and Clown, to participate in the rescue of former Osean President Vincent Harling.
