I have been fighting. Out here. All my life. I lost my family. To disease. To cowardice. Shameful. My most hated rival still lives, though. So I will fight on. We will fight on.
— Tundra the Walrus, Sonic Universe #86
The Artika Egg Army is a group that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It is an Egg Army division stationed in Artika, led by Tundra the Walrus, whose primary objective is to conquer the region for Dr. Eggman.
The Shattered World Crisis
Shortly after hijacking a G.U.N. jet and destroying the G.U.N. ship at Avalon, Doctor Eggman, Orbot, and Cubot crash-landed near the Artika Egg Army fortress in Artika. Eggman "requested" another aircraft to fly to his Death Egg. Tundra gave Eggman a Santa-inspired sled with robotic reindeer to ride his way homeward. Shortly thereafter, the planet was rocked by the Shattered World Crisis, though it apparently did not affect the Artika Unit too badly.
They would later engage Rotor the Walrus and Sonic the Hedgehog when the pair arrived in the Cool Edge Zone, and later brought them back to their base. However, the prisoners would later escape with fellow prisoners Jari-Thure and Sarianna.
- Sleds: The Artika Unit is known to utilize sled vehicles pulled by robotic reindeer; one such sled was given to Dr. Eggman to enable him to travel to the Death Egg.
The exterior of the Artika Egg Army base resembles a series of igloos with various communications equipment and weapons visible on the outside, and the main igloo resembles Dr. Eggman's head due to various unidentified ports and a stylized design around one door resembling the doctor's mustache. The interior includes at least one loading bay, and the facility was regarded by Rotor as being fairly spartan compared with the Sky Patrol.
- The Artika Egg Army is the first case of an Egg Army unit that has taken over a Dark Egg Legion chapter's territory in the new reality without that Legion chapter apparently being erased; the former Northern Tundra Dark Egg Legion under Akhlut was reassigned to the Great Blue Realm.
