Infantry are one of the two playable classes in Global Defence Force. It is the equivalent of Storm 1 from Monster Attack and Earth Defense Force 2017. Infantry are soldiers who form the backbone of the EDF ground forces. The story states there are about 300,000 of them stationed all over the world.


Infantry are flexible combat experts mostly using fairly traditional ballistic weaponry and can also pilot Vehicles. They have higher armor growth (ie, each armor Item counts for more) than the Pale Wing.
