This time we would like to tell you a story. Since the arriving of Judgment we discovered that even the High Command, like every military institute, has the habit to hide certain informations to the most of the Gears fighting for it. We have obtained a classified file about a Gear belonging to C.O.G. Anonymous squad.. and its content has been now exposed to public knowledge for you.

Thanks to SGT DuDemon that allowed this issue.. she is a thought Gear with already several magazine covers in her experience.. it wasn’t so easy to choose only 18 documents on a shooting of more than three hundred.

The COG Tag was a form of identification worn by Gears of theCoalition of Ordered Governments. Whenever a Gear had fallen in battle, the tags would be retrieved when possible. This was a way to keep track of the soldiers that were killed in action. It has been said that the families of deceased Gears were prepared to pay substantial amounts of money to have the COG Tag of a fallen loved one recovered. The text written on a tag is: “Property of the Coalition of Ordered Governments

You shouldn’t miss any of the tags scattered through the Judgment and Aftermath campaign.. their locations are showed in a video and described below.
