State Protectorate (NPC corporation)
All this data is potentially out of date, and should be taken with a truckload of salt
The Caldari-Gallente Warzone encompasses all or parts of The Citadel and Black Rise regions on the Caldari side, and Placid, Essence, and Verge Vendor regions on the Gallente side. Forces from both militias fight for control of Factional Warfare Dungeons, easily probable complexes defended by naval forces of the empire who currently occupies that system. When enough Victory Points for the attacking empire are accumulated, the system's Command Bunker becomes vulnerable. With its destruction, the attacking empire becomes the new system occupant. There are no material rewards for the successful capture of a system for the pod pilot, only standing increases for capturing Factional Warfare Dungeons in enemy-occupied systems and defending them in contested systems.
The Caldari-Gallente Warzone is also the home to many pirate corporations seeking the fast and furious action. For this reason, the neutral pilot should exercise caution while traveling through it. Especially dangerous are the Tama and Old Man Star systems, as well as the entry gates from High Security Space.
