The Battle of Britain, also known as Operation Sea Lion II was a defensive battle against the invading Space Nazi forces. The battle began just as the Republic of Coruscant arrived at Free Western Army bases. The Republic of Coruscant Air Force and the Royal Air Force scrambled their fighters to intercept incoming bombers led by Captain2.
Coruscant immediately launched MiG-21s, MiG-29s, MiG-31s, and F-22s to combat the incoming threat while the RAF scrambled their Hurricanes and Spitfires into action. Republic jet fighters fought the high-performance starfighters and bombers of the Space Nazis while the RAF dealt with slower World War II-era German aircraft.
There had been numerous sightings of a zeppelin-like craft bearing swastikas patrolling the English Channel. This led many officers to suspect that Captain2 orchestrated the invasion, later confirmed by Coruscanti anti-air defenses on the southern coast of England after he hijacked Spongebob Squarepants' fighter. The Coruscantis were outraged to discover that Captain2 was the responsible for the attack, and immediately reneged on their neutral stance to pledge support to the Eastern Union in its occupation of Canada.
The land phase of the invasion was fought chiefly on the shoreline of southern England. Coruscanti lessons learned in the Battle of Bluff Point during the Second Nazi War gave them the advantage to counter the incoming Space Nazi landing as well as buff up both the Royal Army and Air Force. Unlike the Bluff Point Military Installation, the southern English coastline lacked fortified emplacements and the Coruscantis had to make use of abandoned homes and other buildings as their command post and use the versatile M7 Railman and SAM launchers for ground-based anti-air defense.

With the eruption of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano in Iceland, airborne operations over most of Europe were suspended over the threat of volcanic ash damaging aircraft.
