    Conflict in Strangereal

    Post by Ronin201 on Sun Oct 11, 2015 8:20 pm

    Welcome to the thread for talking about all the conflicts outside the Belkan War, Usean Wars, etc. that you may have in your canon. share the backstory on em, battles, TOE, etc.

    To kick it off (and make people reply asking what's what about my things) I have a list of conflicts I write Osea being involved in from 1995 to a few years after the events of AC3. Canon wars relevant to Osea are included for context.

    1995: Belkan War

    1995-2007: Operation Mediation, Belka
    Enforcement of No-Fly Zones in Belka and rebuilding of the country.

    1998: Operation Desert Scorpion, Futuro Canal
    Osean airstrikes on Belkan forces trying to reoccupy the Futuro Canal

    2010: Cirrcum-Pacific War

    2014-2018: Persian Sea War, Kedhan and Shamlak (aka Operation Neptune's Shield when Osea and Co. gets involved in 2018)
    Air/sea/land operations to quell the fighting between Shamlak and Kedhan, especially after they unite against the UN's actions.

    2021-2022: The Juregadar Intervention, Juregadar
    Osean air/land operation to defend friendly regime from rebels armed with weapons leftover from the 2020 war between Auerlia and Leasath.

    2024: Operation Scimatar. Kedhan
    Airstrikes in support of UN peacekeepers in Kedhan when Kedhani separatists attempt a coup.

    2025-2026: South Pacific War, Shimoji Islands and Verusea
    The Peoples' Federation of Verusea invades the Shimoji Republics in an attempt to gain control of its resources. Osean-led coalition repels the invasion and prevents the next step of the plan to invade Songola to usurp its influence in the region.

    2045-2046: Nordic War, Nordlands and Erusea
    UN-formed coalition counters the invasion of Nordlands by the reformed country of Erusea. Erusea, having come back together in the wake of the fall of the corporations ruling Usea, invaded Nordlands for its oil.

    Here is the timeline I have in mind for my personal canon, drawn heavily from the timeline that was on Electrosphere and the book Aces at War. This timeline includes Ace Combat game retellings, the RP Ace Combat: Skies of Tomorrow, and personal ideas. Please note, that parts of this timeline are still a work in progress.

    65 million B.C.E. (Approx.)
    – A massive asteroid impacts somewhere on the planet. This results in a mass-extinction of both plant and animal life from both the catastrophic impact and the debris which is thrown up in the atmosphere from the crater; resulting in the reflection of thermal radiation from the sun.

    1300s: (Approx.)
    – King Aurelius II is born in the Kingdom of Gracemeria.

    – Gracemeria, a large and prosperous port city surrounded by fertile farmland, is a continual battleground due to the immense value of the land surrounding it. Ironically, the fertile land is turned desolate and insecure by the fighting that is supposed to ensure its safety. In response, King Aurelius II raises a militia made up of people of the region and drove the foreign armies out of the area. After being idolized by the local people, Aurelius had a golden statue of himself in his battle armour made. The statue is later given to a unit of soldiers. The unit won every battle it participated in and was regarded as invincible. Such fame grew around the unit that when enemy soldiers saw a unit carrying the “Golden King”, they laid down their weapons and stopped fighting. Aurelius II then managed to unite the warring nations into a single Kingdom of Emmeria. Lasting peace reigned for centuries, until Emmeria was invaded by its neighbor, Estovakia during the Anean Continental War of 2015-16.

    1400s: (Approx.)
    – The people of the Belkan colony of Erusea break away from the Kingdom of Belka to form the Kingdom of Erusea.

    1400s – 1900s: (Approx.)
    – The great nations of the world; Emmeria, Erusea, Belka and Sapin; become global empires with colonies located throughout the world, from Osea, to the Usean continent, and to the Sotoa region of the Verusean continent. These empires will last for centuries until the rise of nationalism in these colonies during the Nineteenth and Twentieth centuries brings an end to these great empires.

    1500s: (Approx.)
    – The Osean Federation is created as it breaks away from the Kingdom of Erusea. It is a revolution that is successful.

    – The Osean Federation's 3rd Fleet comes into existence.

    1830:
    – The Shogunate of North Point opens up to trade with the rest of the world, through “persuasion” from Commodore Thomas Perry of the Osean Navy's 3rd Fleet.

    1831 – 1894:
    – Trade was established, but the agreements heavily favored the global powers. The North Pointian economy faltered and the people suffered because of it. Eventually, in 1835, the Prime Minister, who up till that point as a mere figurehead, overruled the Shogun. The Fifth North Pointian Civil War ensued with the global powers supplying both the Prime Minister's forces and the Shogun's forces with advanced weaponry such as the Gatling Gun and the Armstrong Cannon. The war ended in 1871, with the Prime Minister as the victor, and as a result, North Point became more industrialized and began setting its sights overseas.

    1846 – 1851:
    – The Osean Federation experiences a bloody civil war against the separatist Osean Confederation over the rights of human beings. The Federation is the victor, but at a huge cost. However, the industrialization of the Osean Federation during this time causes the nation to have ambitions for territorial gain and its own imperialist policies; policies that would last until, at the very least, 1997 at the earliest.

    1852 – 1904:
    – The Osean Federation gains more and more territory throughout the western side of the Osean continent. Among those conquered are First Nation tribes and Belkan Colonies along the continent's western coast. The forced annexation of Belkan colonies by Osea will be the source of animosity between the two countries for years to come.

    1895 – 1897:
    – The Yuke-North Pointian War occurs over possession of an archipelago between North Point and Yuktobania. It was mostly a naval war, culminating in the Battle of Shashima, which resulted in a Pyrrhic Victory for Yuktobania, ending the conflict, and putting an end to North Point's imperial ambitions, while at the same time had the Tsar teetering on the edge as Yuktobania experienced its first revolution.

    1905:
    – The Belkan Empire becomes the first nation to use the airplane as a military weapon in what is referred to as the Osean War. The Osean War was caused by Osea’s ambitions for territorial gain and expansion, which colored its foreign policy afterwards with excessive conflict due to modernization.

    1909:
    – Revolution breaks out in the Yuktobanian Empire, by the people and common soldiers who were fed up with the autocratic monarchy who had oppressed them for centuries. The Communists, with help from Belkan agents, seize power as a result.

    1910:
    – The Osean War concludes; with Osea as the victor.

    – Following their defeat in the Osean War, the Belkan Empire capitulates, and is reformed into the Belkan Federation.

    1910 – 1914:
    – The Yuktobanian Civil War rages, as the Communists and the Monarchists fight for control of the Yuktobanian government. The Civil War serves as Yuktobania's first use of the airplane as a military weapon. The war ends in 1914 with the Communists as the victor, effectively creating the Union of Yuktobanian Republics.

    1920s: (Approx.)
    – The Union of Yuktobanian Republics annexes Verusea and Rasca and absorbs them into the Union. The Veruseans and Rascans would remain as a part of Yuktobania until 1961.

    1942 – 1945:
    – The Belkan Federation enters a war with the nations around it and manages to secure lands outside of its southern borders. These lands would be referred to as South Belka. After this acquisition, the Osean continent, including Osea itself, began to regard Belka as a threat.

    1947:
    – Osea and the Republic of Emmeria form an alliance known as the Pacific and Ceres Treaty (PACT) meant as a united front against both Yuktobania, which successfully detonated its first nuclear weapon earlier in the year, and Belka. The Cold War had effectively begun.

    1948:
    – In response to the formation of PACT, the Union of Yuktobanian Republics, the Socialist Republic of Estovakia, and the People's Republic of Sotoa and their respective allies formed the Communist International (CommIntern) Alliance.

    1948 – 1952:
    Ace Combat: Flames of Ruin (Work in Progress Role Play by Me)
    – War breaks out in the Verusean continent, between the Republic of Romny (backed by Osea, Emmeria and Erusea) and the Democratic Peoples' Republic of Kaluga (backed by Yuktobania, Estovakia and Sotoa). Kaluga's invasion of Romny causes the Assembly of Nations to intervene in the conflict. With the capture of most of Kaluga in 1949, Yuktobania itself intervenes on the side of the Kalugans. The war then becomes a stalemate until 1952 when an official treaty is signed, bringing an end to hostilities in the region. The years of war left both Kaluga and Romny to be severely weakened in military strength, thus allowing themselves to be absorbed into Yuktobania within a year.

    1953:
    – ITTC Inc. is established as the Federation of Central Usea's government-operated telephone and telegraph company.

    1959:
    – The Osean Federation, out of Realpolitik, enters into an alliance with its continental rival, the Belkan Federation. It is an uneasy alliance that would break down less than twenty years afterward.

    1961:
    – During a Nuclear Peace Conference in the 1960’s, the Osean Federation pressures the Union of Yuktobanian Republics to allow Verusea and it’s neighbors Rasca, Kaluga, and Romny to secede from the union due to civil strife in the region. Yuktobania, however, is only willing to agree to Osea’s demands if Osea in return doesn't interfere with the growing Socialist movements in the Fato Federation and the Republic of Nordlands along with allowing Yuktobania to keep the resource rich Northern portion of Verusa and Tyumen.
     
    In a surprising move, Osea gives in to Yuktobania’s demands. The reason Osea gives in was partly due to the delicate situation at the time and the threat of Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD) and the gamble that their at the time ally, the Belkan Federation, would retaliate and go to war with the Fato Federation and Nordlands in their stead should the two countries actually become Communist nations.
     
    However, much to Osea’s dismay, both Fato and Nordlands fall to their Socialist revolutions and become Communist allies of Yuktobania in the CommIntern Alliance. Furthermore, in order to get Yuktobania to agree to further Nuclear Reduction Agreements two years later, Osea had to allow Yuktobania the right to sell its military hardware and other goods on the Osean continent. This causes the curious beginnings of foreign fighter proliferation as both Osean and Yuktobanian fighters begin to find themselves in countries around the world, the first to profit from this being the Republic of Erusea, the Federal Republic of Ugellas and the Republic of Delarus on the Usean Continent, and the Kingdom of Sapin, the Palencian Confederacy and the Republic of Leasath on the Osean Continent.

    – Verusea, Rasca, Kaluga and Romny are given independence from Yuktobania, though Rasca is split in two and Verusea continues to be supported by Yuktobania.

    1962 – 1970:
    – War breaks out between the Democratic Republic of (North) Rasca (backed by Verusea, and Yuktobania) and the Federal Republic of (South) Rasca (backed by Osea, Arcis, Valga and Elladas). The war slowly became unpopular with the people of Osea, in the fact that the war was one based on sheer attrition. Osea's involvement in the war ended in 1970 with the signing of a peace agreement in San Salvacion.

    1970s: (Approx.)
    – War continues in and around Belka as it begins to promote expansionism once again. Fighting begins on the southern and western borders.

    – The Osean Federation and the Union of Yuktobanian Republics, two of the world's superpowers, enter the second half of the Cold War. The two nations continue to immerse themselves in a tense political and military standoff and both governments continue to utilize brinkmanship in attempts to make the opposition back down in fear. Their militaries compete for dominance and space programs take higher priorities as the two countries and their respective allies try to establish supremacy. Nuclear war seemed apparent, and states of Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD) to countervailing strategies are reached.

    1973:
    – Belka continues to advance into countries close to their borders. Their elite Air Force, known as the Belkan Luftwaffe, leads the way as the ground forces, spurred on by their leaders, annex their conquered lands as Belkan territories.

    – South Rasca, after years of taking advantage of the San Salvacion Peace Agreement and building up their forces, invades North Rasca. The South Rascans succeed, but then fall to a Communist revolution backed by Yuktobania and Verusea. Osea, dealing with the rising threats of both Yuktobania and Belka, and public disapproval of the Rascan War as a whole, was unable to intervene.

    1976 – 1981:
    – The Kingdom of Aslan becomes divided between loyalists in support of King Hussein II and the Aslani Reformation Council led by Prince Khaled and General Ahmed Assad after years of internal strife. The ensuing conflict becomes bloody with it's aims becoming ever increasingly muddled with each passing year. As the nation becomes starved for pilots, both sides began to recruit foreign volunteers into their ranks.

    1977:
    – An oil crisis hits the South Osea region, crippling the Federal Republic of Aurelia, the Republic of Leasath and other South Osean nations. Gas prices reach 7 Zollars a gallon and kept climbing.

    1980: (Approx.)
    – The Cold War escalates further. The arms race advances, and Yuktobania pushes forward into weapons research. Osea, in response, develops the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI), publicly dubbed the “Star Wars” project. In the future, these developments will produce Yuktobania's Scinfaxi-class submarines and Osea's Arkbird space plane program.

    1981 – 1984:
    – The Belkan military sets its sights on their small neighbor of Recta – starting the Rectan War. For a short time, the Belkan Luftwaffe was pushed back by the smaller, yet more experienced, Rectan Air Force. Belka's top brass sends in its elite squadron, the 126th Tactical Fighter Squadron. The “Silber” squadron turned the tide of the war, most notably with the victory at Mount Mainz, where they finally claim air superiority after several days of the Rectan Air Force maintaining air superiority above the area. Belkan troops were then able to take Calle City, where the Rectan Liberation Front was camped. Destroying the majority of their air force at Mt. Mainz and the Liberation Front at Calle City, the Belkan Military had little opposition throughout the rest of the war. Recta was completely annexed by early 1984.

    1981:
    – The Republic of Emmeria gives the Federal Republic of Aurelia the oil rich Terminus Islands. As a result, Aurelia becomes the dominant oil producer in the South Osea region. Aurelia then sells their newly acquired oil to the other South Osean nations, but at an inflated cost with the intent on paying off its own debt caused by the South Osean Oil Crisis.

    1983:
    – Aurelia gains more land when the Republic of Erusea cedes the Danern Islands to both the Aurelians and Leasathians. Control of the Danern Islands is split in two with Leasath controlling the northern half and Aurelia controlling the southern half. Leasath, finding the Danern Islands to be devoid of oil, is pushed to the edge.

    1985:
    – A group of unidentified aircraft crossed into Belkan airspace and flew over the Crescence Islands. In response, Belka scrambled the famous 126th Tactical Fighter Squadron with orders to intercept and destroy them. The “Silber” squadron destroyed the aircraft without much, if any, resistance. Analysis of their flight paths showed that they were on course from somewhere in either Wellow or northern Osea. The incident was highly investigated, but little information was found and the investigation was eventually dropped. Later, it would be known as the Ware Incident.

    1985 – 1987:
    – In growing desperation as a result of the South Osean Oil Crisis, hoping to seize its oil and territory, the Republic of Leasath declared war on Aurelia, seizing the Danern Islands and streamed across the Aurelian-Leasathian border. Within a couple of months, the Aurelians managed to drive the Leasathian forces back across their border, but they weren't able to retake the Danern Islands. The war became a stalemate, and losses mounted on both sides. On November 2, 1987, the war drew to a close through pens.

    1986:
    – Yuktobania's southern border breaks out in conflict against the (then) Republic of Kaluga in what would be known as the Tyumen Dispute.

    1987:
    – The era of True Federalism begins, with the Belkan Federation being the leader. As the military budget begins to increase, political authority is delegated to the Eastern Countries. As a result, the troops stationed in those areas return to Belka.

    – The State of Northeast Belka declares its independence, deciding on the city of Mons as its capital. Housing different peoples of separate ethnic background, the new state is soon christened the FATO Nations.

    – Yuktobania launches an operation against coup d'etat forces led by the Osean-backed Heum Administration in the Republic of Romny in what would later be referred to as the “Blood War”.

    1988:
    – The Belkan government begins a Federal Law Review in light of recent economic and social instabilities within their country. Following this, two eastern territories are granted permission to secede, in hopes of revitalizing Belka's economy.

    – On May 12th, the Republic of Ustio is formed out of southeast Belka. This further hurts Belka's economy.

    1990:
    – The Osean Federation announces their “Rearmament Declaration of 1990”. This bolsters the power and numbers of the Osean military as a whole.

    1991:
    – The Belkan Federation sells its remaining lands to the eastern neighboring countries of Sapin, Gebet, Ustio and the FATO Nations on August 29. The Belkan economy immediately takes a downturn and the unemployment levels skyrocket. Belka decides to cede its northern and southern part of the Great Lakes to Osea, hoping to stimulate their economy. The borders of this new Belka are drawn according to common cultural and ethnic background regions.

    – The Belkan government enters a state of unrest. During this time, the public calls for order to be restored. Amidst the chaos, the extreme right-wing party of Belka, known as the Belkanischen Vaterland und Arbeiterpartei (BVAP), lead by Waldemarr Rald, takes power on December 12.

    – Four days after the BVAP takes power in Belka; Recta regains its independence and Gebet is formed; both with the new land gathered from the Belkan Federation. Ratio's western border swells, and the Republic of Ustio gains the B7R region, which, after geological and seismic studies, is found to be extremely wealthy in resources.

    – On September 2nd, an article published in a Yuktobanian magazine informs the public of the Scinfaxi-class submarine. Though still in development, it is hailed as “the battleship of the new age”. The then current Osean Minister of Foreign Affairs states that the ship is similar to the Dragonet-class submarine seen in the arsenal of the Republic of Snyder over in the Usean continent. Questions are thus raised about the originality of the Scinfaxi design.

    1994:
    – An observatory owned by the International Union of Astronomers (IUA) sights an asteroid, and labels it “1994XF04”. Scientists fear that it has a high possibility impacting or passing extremely close to the planet. The Usean governments call for an international summit to be held in order to discuss the threat of 1994XF04, also dubbed “Ulysses”. During the summit, the Usean nations, the IUA and the Federation of Central Usea's National Missile Defense Agency prepare plans to destroy the 1994XF04 asteroid, or somehow alter its course.

    1995:
    Ace Combat: The Skully Islands Crisis (Retelling of Air Combat)
    – In the island nation of Skully, south of the Usean continent, a well-armed coup d'etat force arises, quickly overwhelming the legitimate government. Attempts from the loyalist forces to fight back have been foiled by repeated surprise attacks from the terrorist forces, preventing any possible chance of retaliation. As a last resort, the Skully Islands and supporting Usean governments hire a group of mercenary fighter pilots from all over the world, known as the “Scarface Squadron”. In exchange for their services, they would be compensated with economical rewards, as well as being recognized by the Skully Island government as the “premiere top guns of the world”.

    Ace Combat: The Belkan War (Retelling of Ace Combat Zero)
    – Belka spontaneously invades its neighboring nations and begins the Belkan War. The conflict tips into Belka's favor early on, as Belka occupies Osean-, Sapinish- and Ustian-controlled territories. Ustio's military is crushed and most of the country is occupied, save for the mountain range to the east. In repsonse, the Ustian government in exile hires a large amount of foreign mercenaries that supplement the remnants of its domestic air and land forces and, along with the Osean Federation, push Belka out of Ustio. Known as Offensive Campaign #4101, this counterattack leads to the invasion of South Belka, and the war begins to turn against Belka. The BVAP's response was the detonation of seven nuclear weapons in the Waldreich Mountains on June 6, 1995, much to the world's horror. However, the Allies (Osea, Ustio, Yuktobania, Emmeria and Sapin) sign a treaty with Belka in an extremely public ceremony in Lumen, on the Osea-Belka border. This treaty severely limits Belka's military size and divides some of its territory. This treaty officially marks the end of the Belkan War. However, a terrorist group known as “A World With No Boundaries”, made up of war-weary soldiers on both sides, takes control of Belkan material and wages a short campaign. This campaign is cut short as they are soon crushed by the Allies at the Avalon Dam facility.

    – The BVAP is dismantled.

    – Belka enters a state of isolationism in order to stabilize their country economically, financially, militarily and politically.

    – In response to the looming 1994XF04 threat, the Usean governments decide to ban together and construct a superweapon capable of destroying the Ulysses asteroid before it strikes the planet. The project known as “Stonehenge” involves some of the greatest minds from all over the world. Due to diplomatic reasons, the weapon's construction begins in the neutral Republic of Amber.

    1996:
    – Belka's new government signs a treaty with the Allied forces. Osea and Yuktobania provide the southern countries with support to rebuild after the Belkan War. Belka begins its road to recovery and goes into a period of reform. As a show of “goodwill” between Osea and Belka, the Osean military incorporates an entire fighter squadron into the Osean Air Force, comprised entirely of Belkan Aces from the Belkan War.

    – As a means to recover economically, the Belkan military sells its surplus hardware to other nations such as the Socialist Republic of Estovakia, which entered diplomatic relations earlier in the year.

    – The terrorist faction “The Falcons of Dawn” is formed and begin terrorist operations against the Osean Federation.

    – Surviving members of “A World With No Boundaries” plan to assassinate President Dillon Ward of the Osean Federation. However, a member in the group's ranks informs the Osean authorities and after a shootout, all but their leader, Joshua Bristow, are killed by Osean Special Forces.

    – On the Usean continent, hostilities briefly rise between forces from the Republic of Erusea and the central Usean nations. The central Usean forces are ordered to pull out of the Republic of Amber and the Federal Republic of Ugellas in order to avoid conflict.

    – The Federation of Central Usea military announces that Commander Robert Taylor is to become Chief of Staff. Due to the unexpected death of Michael Riass in June that year, Taylor is chosen quickly and takes office. The rocket launch facility in the Comona Islands is named in honor of the deceased Michael Riass.

    – Due to improving relations between Osea and Yuktobania, and deteriorating relations between Yuktobania and Sotoa, the CommIntern Alliance disbands, leaving the PACT as the sole alliance in the Pacific and Ceres regions.

    1997 – 1998:
    Ace Combat: Fighter's Honor (Retelling of Ace Combat 2 / Ace Combat 3D)
    – It has been some time since the Belkan War ended, and the Osean Federation along with the Union of Yuktobanian Republics have grown as the two greatest superpowers in the world. Due to these events, the nations of the Usean continent finally decided to put aside their mutual differences and end the tension by banding together, not only to face the threat of the two growing superpowers, but also the threat of the 1994XF04 asteroid. However for reasons unknown, a group of southern nations ranging from the Republic of Amber to the southeastern coast decided to abandon the USEA alliance and join the Osean Federation. However, the Republic of Erusea, the Republic of North Point, San Salvacion, Snyder and many other northern and western nations opposed and protested the movement. However, they were already too late, as Osea extended a military pact to the southern nations.

    On the day when the southern nations were to join the Osean Federation, conservative extremists from all over the Usean continent organized from Saint Ark commenced a Coup D'etat that encompassed the entire continent, starting in USEA Allied sector NA-P2700. The rebels feared that, like Belka, their mining rights would be robbed and the Osean military would have a constant and invasive presence in the Usean continent. Using these fears as a common thread, they were able to quickly spread their influence to many land, sea and air units to join their cause. And because of this, merciless fighting among the Rebel and Allied forces began in all parts of the Usean continent.

    The USEA Allied Forces at first believed the rebellion could be ended swiftly early on, but due to the aggressiveness of the movement, were forced to retreat. Despair had quickly settled in that the Coup forces would win and take over the governments of Usea completely. To bring back one last glimmer of hope to the Allied cause and answer the Rebellion's continuous successes, Allied headquarters initiated Operation “Fighter's Honor” by contracting the mercenary Usean Allied Forces 37th Air Force 18th Fighter Wing 92nd Special Tactical Fighter Squadron “Scarface”. With the stage set, Scarface One, TAC Name “Phoenix”, with the help of John “Slash” Harvard and Kei “Edge” Nagase, took to the skies and brought an end to the coup, which would later be dubbed the First Usean Continental War.

    – Two new combat aircraft, the Erusean XFA-27 and the Belkan-built ADF-01 are first deployed in combat during the Usean Rebellion. Their outstanding maneuverability, weapons systems, technology and speed give them an edge over a vast majority of the combat aircraft of that era. Because of this, the XFA-27 becomes the first “super” fighter to shoot down another super fighter.

    1999:
    – The Osean military goes into reform. Vowing for a more non-aggressive stance, the Osean military becomes the Osean Defense Forces.

    – The Ulysses asteroid fragments, passes through the Roche Limit and rains down on the planet in a cataclysm unequaled in human history. Millions of lives are lost on the Usean continent alone, as the continent is showered with fragments, mostly in the central and western parts of the Usean continent. Also hit are the northwestern part of the Verusean continent and the southern and eastern parts of the Anean continent, causing heavy damage and adding to the death toll, especially in the Socialist Republic of Estovakia, which effectively changes the country forever.

    2000 – 2003:
    – The Usean Refugee Dispute occurs during this time and results in Erusea's new hostility towards nations on the Usean continent.

    2000:
    – A fascist leader, “Supreme Commander” Laurie Milburn, a man who follows the ideals of the BVAP, takes power in Erusea. Upon taking power, he has the Federal Republic of Erusea leave the USEA alliance and effectively causes a large military build-up along its borders.

    – On the Anean continent, Emmerian and Estovakian reconstruction efforts towards the Socialist Republic of Estovakia begins.

    2003:
    – The Evan Alberts Public Network (EAPN) is established, funded by the Evan Alberts Foundation. The Usean broadcast system allows announcements to be made across the entire Usean continent.

    – The Federal Erusean Military suddenly puts the Stonehenge Turret Network under its authority and occupies it around August 22nd. All communications with personnel in the facility are lost. During the raid on the facility, one of the rail guns receives a direct bomb hit and is rendered useless.

    – The USEA alliance and the Usean Treaty Organization withdraw support of Erusea as a whole. The USEA alliance calls for the return of Stonehenge, its hostages and the immediate removal of all Erusean forces from the Republic of Amber. This ultimatum was to be met by September 14.

    – President of the Federation of Central Usea, and then leader of the USEA alliance, Robert Sinclair announces that the eleven nations which make up the USEA alliance are to disband and join with the Federation of Central Usea to form the Independent State Allied Forces (ISAF). The ISAF later gains five more nations and becomes an alliance of sixteen nations. This coalition force declares itself to be a defensive group; of course, this was argued due to the Erusean threat.

    – The Erusean military suddenly attacks the newly formed Independent State Allied Forces on all fronts across the western half of the Usean continent. The ISAF is caught off-guard by this sudden offensive. With lack of air support, due to Erusea's sudden use of Stonehenge as a continental-range anti-aircraft weapon, the ISAF is pushed east across the continent until they are out of Stonehenge's effective range on the continent's east coast. With Los Canas overrun, the ISAF GHQ was relocated to the nearby Republic of North Point.

    2004 – 2005:
    Ace Combat: Shattered Skies (Retelling of Ace Combat 04)
    – In 2004, the Erusean military starts to be pushed back by a sudden surge of ISAF forces on the eastern coastline. The ISAF manages to destory multiple vital facilities and establish a foothold on the Usean continent. Erusea throws its entire force at the ISAF, who advances across the entire continent, but to no avail. The ISAF liberates much of their lost territory, destroying Stonehenge in the process and regains full air operations across the continent. Soon, all occupied Usean territory is freed and Erusea itself is invaded. The main ISAF force besieges the Erusean capital city of Farbanti in mid-2005, resulting in Erusea's “Supreme Commander”, Laurie Milburn, committing suicide to avoid capture. However, this does not put a definitive end to the war. The remaining Erusean officers flee to Megalith, a newly-built super weapon and attempt to continue the fight from there. Megalith and the surviving Erusean officers were destroyed in a daring ISAF raid and the war was officially put to an end.

    – In 2004, the Republic of Anea initiative is founded. This movement called for the merging of the Republic of Emmeria, the Socialist Republic of Estovakia and the Kingdom of Nordennavik into one continental nation. The Preparatory Agency for the Republic of Anea is founded.

    – In 2005, a documentary by Osean Broadcast Company reporter Brett Thompson airs on international television. It is called, Warriors and the Belkan War. In it, he interviews the top Ace pilots of the Belkan War and listens to their experiences in battles from 1995 in order to find out the truth behind the Belkan War and the accomplishments of a mercenary known as the “Demon Lord”. It is a huge success which reopens the world's minds about the Belkan War.

    – By 2005, the Belkan terrorist group “The Falcons of Dawn” is confirmed to be responsible for several terrorist attacks against the Osean Federation.

    – After the end of the Second Usean Continental War, and with Stonehenge and Megalith's destruction, Osea uses its Arkbird space plane to destroy any Ulysses fragments which remained a threat to the planet. With the unexpected help of Yuktobania's Anti-Space Debris Hyper Laser, the Arkbird is successful in removing ninety percent of any Ulysses fragments which come into the planet's vicinity, the Usean nations and Verusa also support the new space program alongside Yuktobania wholeheartedly. This step also strengthens relations between Osea and Yuktobania even further.

    2006:
    Ace Combat: Operation Katina (Retelling of Ace Combat 5's Arcade Mode)
    – It has been one year since the Second Usean Continental War ended. Erusea's government is under reform by the governments of the ISAF. However, some members of Erusea's military did not approve of this forced reform and rose up to attack the ISAF once again. The “Free Erusean” military gained control of a munitions factory in White Valley and had it at their disposal. ISAF HQ dispatches a single aircraft, along with the support of a single AWACS. The Ace pilot “Mobius One” is selected alone for this mission. The Erusean threat is neutralized. The Erusean government's reform proceeds smoothly and hostilities had ceased on the Usean continent for the time being.

    2007:
    – April of 2007. The Lyes United Front (LUF), within the Socialist Republic of Estovakia, takes control of the country's western region, including the former capital of the region, declaring themselves orthodox. Seeking to recommence support activities for Estovakia, Emmeria reviews the LUF's original restoration plans for Estovakia and provides assistance. The Lyes United Front quickly takes advantage of Emmeria's support and uses it to oppress opposing parties. The city of Glednia refuses the rule of the LUF and suffers two hundred thousand deaths because of an LUF campaign which had cut all supply lines into the city. Soon after this, other factions across Estovakia arise to challenge the Lyes United Front with force. This was the beginning of the Estovakian Civil War.

    2008:
    – The “Arkbird Declaration” occurs. This event was a unified attempt to bring peace to the world by sweeping out any major issues that are on the planet. The G7 Summit is held aboard the Arkbird, the Osean space plane, which was built as a result of the Cold War between Osea and Yuktobania. This summit included the nations of Verusa, Yuktobania, Osea, ISAF, Nordland and the Preparatory Agency for the Republic of Anea. Erusea is also invited and after discussions, attends the meeting. This meeting further eases tensions between Yuktobania and Osea, begins to thaw the relations between Erusea and the ISAF, solves the Usean Refugee problem and institutes the comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban treaty and the second Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty. These treaties severely restrict these nation's ability to test and manufacture nuclear weapons.

    – Due to Estovakian domestic disorder, the Republic of Anea initiative is completely frozen until more favorable conditions arise.

    2010:
    – Emmerian assistance to Estovakia, mainly to the Lyes United Front, is officially cut off due to the misuse of support.

    Ace Combat: The Unsung War (Retelling of Ace Combat 5)
    – Yuktobania suddenly declares open war on Osea and attacks all Osean facilities on their western coast. The attack comes as a shock to the Oseans. The Oseans attempt the reform their military, but are in too much disarray to launch a counteroffensive. A group of pilots stationed at Sand Island Air Force Base manage to change the tide of the war and the Osean military goes on the offensive. The war eventually spreads to the Yuktobanian mainland as casualties mount. Soon, each side vows that they will never surrender until the opposition is defeated. A wedge of hatred forms on both sides as innocent civilians become casualties. The Osean military presses forward on the Yuktobanian mainland, taking heavy losses from the Yuktobanian military. The group of pilots from Sand Island are then found to be spies and are believed to have been killed by a pilot of the Osean Maritime Defense Force (OMDF) as they attempted to escape. However, the framing of the Sand Island pilots was a plan made by ex-Belkan operatives within each military in act of retribution to make Osea and Yuktobania pay for the events which took place in 1995. The Sand Island pilots return as the “Demons of Razgriz” and unveil the truth behind the Circum-Pacific War. A combined Osean-Yuktobanian force attacks the Belkan “Grey Men” in Sudentor, South Belka; their goal was to completely destroy the “Grey Men” forces. In the end, after two pivotal battles, the “Grey Men” were defeated and the Circum-Pacific War came to a close.

    – A top secret aircraft known as the ADF-01F, a further development of the ADF-01 that Scarface squadron fought against during the First Usean Continental War, is completed. This aircraft, known as the “Falken” uses Tactical Laser System (TLS) technology seen on the ADFX “Morgan” models from the Belkan War. It also uses a prototype three hundred sixty degree digital screen system. This is the first version of a technology that would appear later in 2020, known as COnnection For Flight INterface, a.k.a. “COFFIN”.

    2011:
    – Emmeria-Estovakian reconstruction measures are suspended because of the raging civil war in Estovakia.

    2013:
    – An Osean peace convention is held with countries around the world. President Vincent Harling of the Osean Federation makes an announcement, stating that information concerning the events during the Circum-Pacific War would be released in 2020.

    – The Estovakian Civil War ends with the ultra-nationalist Eastern Faction as the victor. “The Generals” implement martial law over the Federal Republic of Estovakia and take complete control of the nation.

    2014:
    – General Resource LTD. is founded in Belka. General Resource's business grows substantially over the next decade and soon becomes the leading company within the fields of engineering sciences, software and military equipment.

    – Plans to recommence Emmerian-Estovakian reconstruction of the Federal Republic of Estovakia are set in motion.

    2015 – 2016:
    Ace Combat: Fires of Liberation (Retelling of Ace Combat 6)
    – Estovakia, under the command of the military dictatorship, initiates a surprise invasion of its neighbor, the Republic of Emmeria. Using the superior military power of the P-1112 Aigaion and its Nimbus missiles as well as its Ace squadron, the “Strigon” team, Estovakia is able to conquer all of continental Emmeria, pushing the Emmerians onto the island of Khesed. After reorganizing their forces, the Emmerians are able to recapture the northern part of Khesed and launch a landing in Otara, on the western tip of the Anean continent. After pressing into the continent, the Emmerians came under assault from the Aigaion again. The Emmerians place high priority on the destruction of the command cruiser Aigaion, and are able to launch a successful attack on it. The Aigaion's destruction marked a vital turning point in the war.

    Soon afterwards, the Emmerians retook Ragno Fortress and pressed on toward Gracemeria, their fallen capital. However, the were forced to stop the advance due to a WMD threat on the capital from the Estovakians. The Emmerians were able to locate the WMDs and eliminate them. This allowed the Emmerians, through fierce fighting, to retake their capital. The ground war was over.

    However, the Estovakians then began to use a secondary super weapon; the electromagnetic meteor interception gun “Chandelier”, which they used to fire warhead-packed cruise missiles at Gracemeria. With the threat of complete annihilation at hand, Emmeria launched a desperate raid on the facility. Due to the noble efforts of the fighter pilots, the attack was successful. The war ends with the overthrow of the Estovakian military government, bringing freedom to both Estovakia and Emmeria.

    – The destruction of the Chandelier marks the end of the Legacy of the Ulysses 1994XF04 Asteroid and a new period of history begins.

    Between 2015 – 2019: (Approx.)
    – Neucom Inc. is founded by ex-researchers and employees of General Resource LTD. Of the first moves undertaken by Neucom Inc., the acquirement of multiple businesses and organizations, such as the Erusean Air and Space Administration (EASA), were made.

    – In the South Osea Region, the Republic of Leasath enters a civil war, one that lasts for years. Aurelia sends financial aid meant for food for the Leasathian people in response.

    2017:
    – South Belka is returned to the Principality of Belka by Osea.

    – Under heavy supervision from Osea, Belka begins to rearm itself due to the social and political climate. General Resource provides Belka with military hardware, also under Osea's supervision.

    2019:
    – The Leasath Civil War ends when the victor's leader General Diego Gaspar Navarro, takes power.

    2020:
    – The Osean government publicly declassifies information on the “Ghosts of Razgriz”. Along with flight data, mission statements and other military data, personal identities are also revealed. The four pilots are named as follows: Kei “Edge” Nagase (RZ Two), Hans “Archer” Grimm (RZ Three), Marcus “Swordsman” Snow (RZ Four) and the last pilot, known only as “Blaze”. Information on this pilot is extremely vague and otherwise inaccurate. One pilot was killed in action when enemy air raid on November City occurred. His name was Alvin H. “Chopper” Davenport.

    Ace Combat: Skies of Deception (Retelling of Ace Combat X)
    – Leasath suddenly invades Aurelia without warning with claims that Aurelia exploited Leasath during its civil war in the 2010s. The unprepared Aurelian forces are overrun by the Leasath forces lead by General Diego Navarro. By mid-October 2020, Aurelia is almost completely occupied by the Leasath military. Gathering what little strength they had left, Aurelia launches an outnumbered counterattack against the Leasathian forces. Though heavily outnumbered, the Aurelian forces manage to claim victories and regain their land. In the process, they destroy Leasasth's feared Gleipnir airborne fortress and eventually retake their capital city, Griswall. The is due in large part to the efforts of Gryphus One, also known as the “Southern Cross” by the Aurelian people (and known by the Leasath military as "Nemesis"). General Diego Navarro flees to the nearby Danern Islands to finish production of Leasath's newest weapon, a super fighter codenamed the XFA-33 “Fenrir”. The facility in the Danern Islands was attacked by the Aurelian Air Force, led by Gryphus One, and destroyed along with the Fenrir prototypes. The development of Fenrir is later found to be the cause of the Aurelia-Leasath War.

    – The truth behind the Aurelia-Leasath War is found, thanks to a traveling Osean reporter who went to the battle area for a story in a newspaper. His name was Albert Genette, the same reporter who worked alongside the Osean Air Defense Force 108th Tactical Fighter Squadron, also known by their enemies as “The Demons of Razgriz” a decade earlier in 2010.

    – The XR-45 Cariburn and YR-302 Fregata are created in 2020. They are among the first aircraft / military vehicles to be equipped with the early version of the COFFIN system, a technology that will be standard later on in the 2040s. This is a turning point in technology and history itself. By the end of 2020, the COFFIN system is developed and refined, for decades on end, until it becomes the main combat system used on every military vehicle in the world: Tanks, aircraft and many other vehicles. Much of the technology and designs of the Cariburn and Fregata are believed to have been early designs by Neucom Inc.

    – An aircraft known as the YR-99 Forneus is used during the Aurelia-Leasath War. This aircraft bears a strong resemblance to Neucom's R-100 Delphinus series, which would appear twenty years later. It is advertised as “a prototype for the next generation of fighter aircraft” and is believed to be a Neucom Delphinus series prototype.

    – A new era begins. Many of the world's countries are in the process of being taken over by worldwide multi-billion Zollar corporation such as Neucom Inc. and General Resource LTD.

    2023:
    – The ITTC Inc. is privatized and open for a new owner.

    2024:
    – General Resource buys out ITTC Inc.

    2025 – ???:
    Ace Combat: Skies of Tomorrow (Role Play by Lemniscus 1)
    Work In Progress

    2026:
    – A terrorist faction operating within the Usean continent is suppressed by General Resource's recently unveiled paramilitary group, the General Resource Defense Force (GRDF).

    2028:
    – The “Darkness of Enigma” (DOE) Plan is initiated. The DOE Plan is a top secret General Resource Military research project which focuses on “sublimation” or computerization development. Sublimation would allow a human to turn all information and in a sense, their very being, into computer software. This would allow a human the ability to discard their body and live within the Electrosphere, the Internet of the future. The person to come up with the concept and the leader of the DOE Plan's team is Youko Martha Inoue.

    2030:
    – General Resource begins the “Power Project”.

    – The General Resource LTD. Military Research Center, home to the “DOE” Plan headed by Yoko Inoue attempts to test the theory of sublimation. This theory states that it is possible to produce a dead copy of a human being's mind in the Electrosphere. However, an accident occurs during the team's research and General Resource abandons the continuation of research. This accident is later found to be a planned assassination by orders of one of General Resource's top brass. All occupants of the Military Research Center were killed; all except for GRDF fighter pilot Abyssal Dision, who was a DOE test subject, who was successfully sublimated and transferred into the Electrosphere. Abyssal Dision becomes the first human in history to successfully survive the procedure and leave his body behind.

    – Simon Orestes Cohen creates the NEMO Project. The project is ultimately a success and the NEMO AI is given to the NUN for training purposes.

    Between 2030 – 2037: (Approx.)
    – The Universal Peace Enforcement Organization (UPEO), a further evolution of the Armed Responce and Intervention Agency (ARIA) forces that fought in the Verusean War, is formed by the NUN's Security Council as a means to keep the rising corporations such as General Resource LTD. and Neucom Inc. in check.

    2031:
    – The ITTC INC. expands to include video mail and video phone services. It also allows the exchange of images, voice and text information on the Electrosphere in real time.

    2032:
    – General Resource announces its release of “Data Swallow”, a computer operating system. This system includes a browser which allows access to various excerpts of information in the Electrosphere. This is made possible by an application in “Data Swallow” known as “Peek-A-Boom”; it searches the Electrosphere using a selected keyword and displays all relevant data with a color image.

    – Neucom Inc. announces its entry into space development. From here on, Neucom INC. attempts to enter a state of peace with General Resource LTD., despite rising tensions between the two companies.

    2033:
    – The Neucom Visual System; a program broadcasting service on the Electrosphere becomes operational. The NVS becomes Neucom's main broadcasting system.

    – Neucom Inc. grows by leaps and bounds. Due to their employment of an excellent and talented research staff, despite their nationality and research origins. Examples of this being bankrupt government-operated agencies and corporate research and development teams made obsolete due to governmental downsizing. This is also thanks to their successive line of Radical Aircraft which have taken the world's military market by storm. Of their many aircraft, the R-100 Delphinus series becomes their prime fighter line.

    – In July of 2033, General Resource LTD. begins a new project. This project, known only as “Project Night Raven”, is a joint effort of various fields in General Resource LTD. The project's origin is in General Resource LTD.'s RDI division.

    2034:
    – Neucom Inc. establishes a global satellite network in order to network plans for its space-based strategy.

    2035:
    – The General Broadcasting System (GBS) is established. The GBS becomes General Resource's privately owned Electrosphere broadcast system.


    2036:
    – Project Night Raven is a success. However, information about the completed project remains highly classified.


    2037:
    – The “Power Project” is completed.

    – Neucom Inc. forms a private Self-Defense Force known as the Neucom Emergency Unit (NEU). Though the unit was originally intended as a security guard, it quickly expanded into a full-scale military due to multiple disagreements within the second half of the 2030s between Neucom and General Resource.


    2037 – 2039:
    – Neucom Inc. and General Resource LTD. have multiple small breakouts of conflict and skirmishes. In a few cases, NEU and GRDF aerial forces engage one-another over populated areas, causing damage and civilian casualties. Despite UPEO and NUN sanctions, skirmishes continue to break out. Neucom especially goes against UPEO sanctions and continues to fly their transports over General Resource controlled territory.


    2038:
    – Neucom Inc. announces their new product: The “Nano-byte”. This Nano scaled technology can adapt to extreme conditions and self-replicate. This makes them great for construction and space development; as well as a new energy source replacing natural gas and nuclear energy.

    – The UPEO is increasingly forced to intervene between Neucom Inc. and General Resource LTD. militarily, and announces the formation of the Special Armed Response Forces (SARF).


    2039:
    – Neucom Inc completes construction of “Megafloat”, a large floating city located in the Gulf of Saint Ark. It can be said that, “Neucom makes the impossible, possible.”

    – The Faith Park Dispute occurs. General Resource LTD. sees an opportunity to gain economic dominance over Neucom Inc. and attempts it. A large conflict erupts in the Faith Park region of the Usean continent as a result. Following what was dubbed the “Faith Park Dispute”, hostilities between Neucom Inc. and General Resource LTD. began to include military actions.

    – Data Swallow Version 3.2.2 goes on sale.


    2040:
    Ace Combat: Electrosphere (Retelling of Ace Combat 3)
    – Neucom Inc. declares war on General Resource LTD. and goes on the offensive against them, when the UPEO finally engages and destroys an NEU transport group. The UPEO scrambles to intercept any Neucom aggression, while participating in joint training exercises with GRDF pilots, but does not have the power or resources on their side. Over time, Neucom Inc. takes a heavy toll of damage from the UPEO and General Resource attacks on Neucom Inc. The UPEO are stretched thin world-wide and their manpower and resources begin to deplete. During the course of what would later be known as the Corporate War, a revolutionary group known as the Ouroboros rises from the shadows, and begins to attack each side. The UPEO's Supreme Commander, Gilbert Park, was also found to be a part of the Ouroboros in which he had used the UPEO to carry out missions which would further fuel the conflict; deceiving all of the UPEO personnel. UPEO pilots broke away and then began to attack the Ouroboros. The Ouroboros fell to the combined force of UPEO, Neucom Inc. and General Resource LTD., after multiple engagements around the world and the Corporate War came to a conclusion.


    2045:
    – Five years of uneasy peace between Neucom Inc. and General Resource LTD. have passed, enforced by UPEO. However, in late 2045, eight of Neucom's new XR-900 Geopelia, modeled after the X-49 Night Raven, lifted off from a Neucom Air Base and began to attack Port Edwards in the Usean continent; all without warning. The General Resource Defense Force scrambled their best Ace pilots to combat them. An extended engagement broke out and eventually resulted in one of the GRDF fighters hacking into one of the XR-900s. The AI pilot was connected to the controls of the XR-900 which had hacked into its aircraft and used the fighter to destroy the remaining Geopelias. Upon landing it was discovered that the hacked Geopelia was unmanned. It is rumored that these unmanned XR-900s were programmed by the Ouroboros. Since then, no official explanations have been released. This attack, if planned by the Ouroboros, may have been a final attack or a sign that the faction still exists.


    2046 – Onward:
    – The Era of the UGSF occurs.

    Keep in mind this is a work in progress as I make shit up.  Most (if not all) entries focus on conflicts relevant to Rosenthal or Rosenthal personnel.


    2012:  Centennial Oil Rig Hostage Crisis

    Terrorists aligned with Belkan group Falcons of Dawn seize Centennial Oil Rig 1-6 in Aurick Bay, Osea in response to sanctions on Belka.  Osean Navy DEVGRU retakes the platform with minimal casualties.


    2015:  Anean Continental War

    Combat debut of Rosenthal 456th MNFW supporting Estovakian invasion of Emmeria.  Rosenthal forces responsible for destruction of Emmerian 1st Fleet, as well as interdiction of retreating Emmerian forces.  Rosenthal forces withdraw from conflict following destruction of Estovakian aerial fleet as well as loss of 2 F-15Es in battle of San Loma.

    Keep in mind that my personal canon diverges greatly from what is presented in the in game canon. I have integrated many events, characters, and locations of my own creation into the timeline; much like Sho I continue to add and subtract at my own leisure. In addition some of Ronin and Sho's own material has bled over into my version of events. (Since I am about to go to bed, I will just add dates for now)

    1860-1865 - Osean Civil War

    1905-1911 - First Great War

    1940-1947 - Second Great War

    1950-1953 - Chosun War

    1961-1972 - Vinang War

    1976-1981 - Aslani Civil War
    The Kingdom of Aslan becomes divided between loyalists in support of King Hussein II and the Aslani Reformation Council led by Prince Khaled and General Ahmed Assad after years of internal strife. The ensuing conflict becomes bloody with it's aims becoming ever increasingly muddled with each passing year. As the nation becomes starved for pilots, both sides begin to recruit foreign volunteers into their ranks. During this time Colonel Idris Ibrahim (Grandfather of Rein Carter) and his wingman Yusuf Gal become national icons as stories of their exploits spread.


    1982 - Belkan-Fatoan Border War

    1983 - Amber Civil War

    After an Erusean backed coup topples the legitimate government, scattered loyalist forces with Usean aid launch a counter offensive against the newly installed dictatorship. Like Aslan, the use of mercenaries becomes popular with both sides.

    1990-1991 - Operation Unified Force

    1995 - Belkan War

    1995-1996 - Scali Islands Crisis

    1997-1998 - Usean Rebellion (First Usean Continental War)

    2003-2005 - Second Usean Continental War

    2006 - Operation Katina

    2007 - North Chosun Crisis

    2010 - Circum Pacific War

    2013 - Operation Agile (Grey Men Counterinsurgency Operation)

    2015 - Anean Continental War

    2018 - Operation Neptune's Shield

    2021 - Operation Stiletto Lance

    Simultaneous coups by extreme right wing political elements in Erusea, Sapin, and Fato leads to all out war in eastern continental Osea and the western Usean continent; conflict is further exacerbated by the involvement of outside elements in the form of mercenaries, defectors, and co belligerent minor states. UN task force Spearheaded by Osea and the ISAF deployed in response to the hostilities taken by the nationalist Triple Alliance and it's allies. After months of brutal fighting; alliance remnants are forced back to a series of concentrated positions in the Republic of Amber and nothern Erusea where they make a desperate final stand despite severely degraded warfighting capacity. Lorenz Riedel; a wanted war criminal and collaborator with Alliance leadership is killed in action alongside several of his accomplices. Infrastructure damage, massive casualty counts, and the presence of a lasting insurgency in Fato places a burden on the global community for years.

    2035 - Amazon War

    2050 - South Verusan War

    So to get more specific on my stuff, I decided to highlight one of the battles of have at least a rough outline of within my own set of conflicts. From the South Pacific War (which may very well one day become the rewrite of The Eagle and the Dragon) I actually have a ground battle, known as the Battle of Koutin Crossing. A joint force of Shimoji paratroopers from the Shimoji Ground Self-Defense Force's 1st Airborne and elements of the Osean 25th Cavalry's 1st Brigade fought back repeated assaults by the Verusean 11th Naval Infantry Regiment as they tried to push from their beachhead towards the country's capital.

    The battle, placed on largely open farm terrain dotted by steep hills and grooves of trees, was mainly fought between tanks, initially M1A1 Bulldog MBTs of the Osean Cavalry and the Verusean ZTD-05 amphibious tanks. However by the third day of the five-day battle, the Veruseans had deployed their ZTZ-99A2 to meet the so far superior M11. The two tanks were closely matched, but heavy air support and better training eventually allowed the Oseans and Shimojis to hold the attack and the counter another thrust by the elite Verusean Zan-Pao Regiment in an attempt to flank. 

    The battle effectively halted the Verusean advance on the main Shimoji island of Yokouto. Further battles would rage north as Verusean elements tried to break the deadlock.

    Since I couldn't sleep at all last night, I decided to spend the night updating my personal Strangereal timeline, as it now extends to cover the events of Ace Combat 3, as well as fixing grammar issues and add in events that I forgot to add in.

    And now something from a WIP I have called "When Thunder Rolls: Osean Mechanized Warfare in the Belkan War, 1995". This excerpt is on the Osean's primary training center for mechanized warfare and guerrilla warfare for units outside Osea's Special Operations Forces. The idea is highly similar to that of the US Army's National Training Center.


    “It Takes More Than Combat Gear…”: The Armored Training Center and Maneuver Warfare Center
     
              Advanced weapons and large armies are useless if they cannot deploy their weapons properly. For decades, the Osean military’s fear of losing its edge in combat, and the political interference that mired its abilities in the early years of the Songolian Civil War, led to the employment of ever-evolving training programs in its armed forces. In 1971, at Fort Seblanc in Central Osea, the The Armored Training Center and Maneuver Warfare Center (ATC-MWC) were both established to teach Osean soldiers the proper lessons to win in large force-on-force battles and infantry-heavy engagements. The centers both focused on all aspects of warfare and a number of scenarios to provide the most realistic experience possible. Much like the Navy’s TOPGUN program and the Air Force’s Red Flag, ATC-MWC (commonly referred to as “War School”), the aim is not to give the visiting units any kind of advantage, but rather to teach them to find and correct mistakes in a controlled environment, and to develop possible strategies.
              The typical rotation at War School for a visiting unit is two weeks. During these two weeks, they will face the 81st Armored Cavalry Regiment (known as “The Charging Herd”) and the 267th Light Infantry Battalion. The 81st and 267th serve as the Opposing Force (OPFOR) at the War School. The terrain of the War School is mostly large savannas with few trees and hills. The climate of the area, characterized by warm, humid summer and cold, snowy winters, allows for the incorporation of various conditions. The base itself has few buildings, but is one of the largest instillations the Osea army operates in terms of land size (997.37 square miles). Visiting units spend very little time out of “the field” doing exercises, adding to the realism of being deployed to combat zones where the comforts from home are more often unavailable than not.
              The training schedule at War School, despite its variety to keep visitors on their toes, does have a very basic structure in its scenario. The fictional country of Katasolvia is experiencing turmoil and the Osean military has deployed a small task force to help protect upcoming elections. It is quickly revealed that the local rebel faction, the Citizen’s Collective Interest (CCI), is merely a front supported by the People’s Army of Lagonia (PAL) so that they can invade and secure Katsolvia. The Osean task force’s job becomes one of both peacekeeping and helping defeat the CCI and then confronting the PAL when they invade. The ground-based task force is often backed up by aircraft from other services and bases that are tasked to participate in the exercise. Colonel Maxwell Tolan, a member of the Operations Group at the War School, the controllers of the battle, explains…
     
              “What we wanna do is develop a situation in which the average Osean commander at every level will have to think about multiple missions at once.They have to be able to adapt and meet the various forms of threats in modern warfare. We’ve developed this scenario to mirror the most common problems Osea faces today in its global mission against oppressive regimes. Guerrilla factions that rely on car bombs and snipers are just as much of a    threat as mechanized armies with a clear uniform and set or weaponry. By having a scenario with multiple aspects, we can make our officers and enlisted personnel better in preparation for the real thing.”
     
              …The rules of the game are designed to follow those of real warfare. Tracking progress, advantages and disadvantages is helped thanks to what is known as MILES. The MILES system, shorthand for Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System, is a combination of laser beams and blank rounds to simulate real battle. MILES allows for the clear identification of who has defeated who in exercise and the invisible lasers and blank rounds do no damage to what they fire on. MILES also has the behavior of a standard weapon; the beam representing the shot travels in a straight line. Modern variants of the MILES system allow commanders and moderators to track who is effectively winning and losing and construct what they need to teach those at the base. The entire system is controlled by both instructors on the battlefield and soldiers at the Operations Building, who oversee the entire picture. First Lieutenant Timothy Cape provides a better idea…
             
              “By watching what happens out in the field from the Operation Center, we can provide the most effective feedback we can give and also make sure the training is effective. If no one’s watching, then you don’t know what happened in an objective sense. You only have word of mouth from men in the exercise, very few of whom have the total picture we have here. With this we can know everything fast, and we can know exactly what happened.”
     
              …The visiting unit, designated the “Blue Force” (BLUFOR), receives their MILES gear before deploying to the field. While out there, a variety of missions are conducted based on the progression of the scenario. The OPFOR uses older M551 Sheridan tanks as the base for fleet of Yuktobanian-esque combat vehicles called “VISMODs” (Visually Modified) and dresses and behaves much like a foreign army. Though not a frontline unit, they are considered to be one of the most elite mechanized formations in the Osean military. This is alregly due o its knowledge in both Osean and Yuktobanian tactics. The latter are very popular in many countries that Osea may face, meaning they take priority. The OPFOR prides itself in being a living, breathing threat; they don’t like to lose. To even further the façade, the 81st often calls itself “The Lagonian 81st Guards Regiment” during the exercise.
              The OPFOR has many advantages over the BLUFOR, chiefly in numbers and knowledge. Even when not facing BLUFOR units, the OPFOR trains extensively to keep its lethality. A major part of this is knowing the terrain, so that the OPFOR can more effectively maneuver against its opponents and mirror the natural advantage adversaries of Osea possess, since Osea often conducts expeditionary operations away from its homeland. Showing the heavier Yuktobanian influence in tactics, the OPFOR favors large numbers as part of its overall strategy in mechanized battles. Often the ratio of OPFOR to BLUFOR is 2:1 in battle. This is what Osean commanders believe will usually be the case in an actual war. The BLUFOR, as a result, must rely on speed, maneuvering, teamwork and careful use of firepower to have any chance.
              Though the entire exercise is supposed to be equally important, many feel it all leads up to “The Battle of the Plains”. During the last three days before closing matters, the BLUFOR and OPFOR engage in a series of large battles between armored formations, supported by artillery and aircraft. Observers, often more than military personnel, are treated to a massive display of combat power during this event. It is rare, but not unheard of for visiting units to win their battles. These honored few often find their victor immortalized on what is known as “Bastard Rock”, named for the visiting units being “stubborn enough bastards” to win.
              The most valuable part at times isn’t the fighting, though; often it’s the reviews and discussion afterwards. Results notwithstanding, visiting units are given the harsh lessons needed to make them ready for war. They go in and leave having faced one of the best opponents and being provided with the best possible environment to make mistakes in without major consequences. Many commanders on the ground during the Belkan War attributed the success of their units to sessions at War School.

    Because I just couldn't leave well enough alone, could I?

    1991: Eastern Osean Collective Defense. The Union of Yuktobanian Republics signs a pact with the recently-reborn nations of Gebet and Recta to help retrain the reborn armed forces. The FATO signs as a co-sponsor with the UYR rather than as a signatory. Osean defense analysts now add two-flanked invasions - one from the ocean and the other through Belka - to more likely defense scenarios, while the UYR presents the new pact as a way for the nations to resist a possible re-invasion by an increasingly agitated Belka in the near fugure.

    Late 1994: Peace in Sotoa. The discovery of the Ulysses 1994XF04 asteroids and the realization of humanity's own mortality hastens the end of protracted sectarian conflicts across Central and Southern Sotoa. A series of accords later known as the Pax Emirati - named for the United Emirates of Verusea in which most of them were signed - would bring stability to all but the most militant holdouts in Sotoa.

    1996: The "Yuke Sector." The Assembly of Nations creates a new Mission to Belka (ANMIBEL) to oversee the dismantlement of the Belkan Military within the remaining Principality of Belka territory. In order to plug the security gap while the local police are reorganized, ANMIBEL organizes a peacekeeping force comprised of personnel from EOCD countries, particularly the UYR. Combined with the seizure and re-distribution of North Belka's remaining industrial capability, the years 1996-1999 are derisively referred to as the Yuke Sector years in comparison to the "Osea Sector" that was once South Belka.

    2006: Cerdari Invasion. In order to legitimize his rule following the death of his father Vladimir, Zabomir Cerdar orders the invasion of Astigos Island, conquering it in a matter of hours and evicting the AN mission in place since the Lukano-Zagorias dispute. The island is renamed Polinovia, in honor of Zabomir's still-living mother.

    2017: Valahia Crisis. A wide-ranging terrorist organization emerges from the former Estovakian states and Central Verusea called the Valahia, comprised of terrorists and former military personnel from multiple nations. The terrorists are extremely-well armed, and the pinnacle of their might is the Spiridus ACC and its Orgoi supporting vessels, stolen from under the noses of ANESTOM. In the environment of disarmament, the AN establishes a PKO made up entirely of private contractors under the command of state professional military forces from West Verusea. Despite high-profile defections in the campaign's opening stages, the ANIPF is able to recover and thwart major Valahia offensives across the world, destroying the first Spiridus ACC over Nordland's capital of Cardon.

    2019: End of Civil War in Leasath. The defeats suffered by the EPRL as part of the anti-Valahia campaign severely weaken their own forces. General Diego Gaspar Navarro, who had taken power in a coup d'etat just after the end of the Valahia crisis, demonstrates his power by having the twin heavy command cruisers Gandr and Gleipnir strike at rebel strongholds. The unbridled power of these weapons force the EPRL to unconditionally surrender in early 2019.

    2026: Joint Corporate Force. Following the collapse of four FCU member state governments in late 2024, high-ranking GR and Neucom executives are summoned to the NUN headquarters to account for their companies' responsibility in the collapses, caused by unbridled mergers, acquisitions and subsequent layoffs. In return, the companies establish the Joint Corporate Force to re-establish law and order in these failed states. The JCF intervention proves decisive, and newly-drafted "interim" governments pledge to restore prosperity. These governments are de facto appointed by the corporations that restored their power, thus creating de facto corporate states.

    2027: Establishment of UPEO. When a fifth member state - whose second largest city happens to be Expo City - suddenly undergoes governmental collapse, the JCF deploy themselves to restore order. When plans leak for the new government to be directly picked by and from corporate execs to form the world's first direct corporate state, the recently-reformed NUN quickly orders the JCF disbanded and hastens the creation and development of a new permanent PKO: the United Peace Enforcement Organization. The JCF complies, but the UPEO remains outgunned by the corporate forces.
