Alpha Squad is a fighter squadron that consisted of Alpha Leader, and several F-22 Raptors.
They were deployed in New Orleans to aid Silver Squad in fighting the Martian threat. When the Landing Castle launches a horde of missiles to destroy the communications relays, they begin their attack only to be destroyed by the Solis' plasma beams. Alpha Leader being the only survivor looks behind to see what happened. While he is distracted his F-22 is split in half by a plasma beam, splattering blood on his cockpit, moments before his jet falls apart destroying the squadron.
