Seoul, the Federal Eastern Union


Princeps Shen considered the offer. Seeing the situation of the Cypriot Republic, he clearly saw Arthur Snow's plot of using the Union's military force to his will - however, this time, that would not be the case. He, along with his predecessors, had his own strategy in approaching diplomacy - bringing the theoretic strategies into reality. However, for now, Princeps Shen knew that he had to agree to the campaign: after all, that was the best remaining option in terms of tactics.

"Arthur Snow, leader of the said Cypriot Republic," Princeps Shen responded. "I think we have a deal - your forces may advance to the east, while the Union troops will start from the East. We would cooperate with the Qatari Army to make the move from the east - war is not a one man's job. To clear the point, the Union is willing to participate in the endeavor."

"Excellent," Arthur Snow said. "Let's hope our forces adjoin upon Baghdad."

"Absolutely," Princeps Shen agreed. Then, he turned to the Minister of Defense and said, "We have a new operation - bring Operation Desert Darkness into motion."

50 kilometers south of Al Khiran, Kuwait


General Juan Merced, Commander of the Stormtrooper Division of the Federal Eastern Union Army, stood aboard a Union E-737 AEW&C, standing at the command post of Operation Desert Darkness. The original plan was to land upon Kuwait City and Bubiyan Island - however, reconnaissance drones have revealed several secrete enemy defenses in the area, meaning that the location needed to be revised.

Seeing how the battles over the Middle East went for decades, General Merced knew why it was so hard to achieve peace - it was almost impossible to fight against an idea. However, he was not planning to use military power only: he would declare new nations throughout the region - united under ideology, religion and willpower. With this, or at least in theory, there may be a time of long-awaited peace in the region.

Meanwhile, General Merced oversaw the attack operation - several C-20 Mammoths and C-120 Mastodons, carrying troops and equipment of the Stormtrooper Division, starting the landing operation. Both soldiers of the Stormtrooper Division and the Qatari Army alike began to make inroads into the city, pushing the insurgents deeper into the desert. On the air, 40 of the F-26 fighters and several gunships from the Qatari bases began air strikes against the Islamic insurgents, who challenged the Division's airlifters with MANPADs and short-range SAM's.

From the air, General Merced saw the landing continue - even from the E-737, he clearly saw that this was the start of the Union's war against the insurgents.

"Fire!" Colonel Wei shouted, as the Union soldiers opened fire against the hidden insurgents. Soldiers moved forward and fired toward the apartment windows - where they had spotted the hidden, armed insurgents. Some insurgents challenged them with RPG's: however, to their luck, most were able to fire in advance, taking out the RPG's before they were launched.

"Change of plans," Colonel Wei said to the soldiers. "We're striking building by building - divide into teams and attack each building filled with insurgents."

Soldiers divided up into companies, then onto platoons and moved toward each of the buildings. Colonel Wei personally led a platoon and began the advance: however, as if they predicted the move, insurgents came out from doorways and windows, opening fire toward the platoon. The platoon moved into a building - while soldiers moved in for barricade, Colonel Wei secured the building with several high-powered 25mm grenades, stopping the insurgents temporarily.

"We need air support, sir," a soldier said, while Colonel Wei went into the building as well. "With all the enemy fire here, it's almost impossible for us to deal with them."

"We'll have to make a way," Colonel Wei said. "Let's continue."

Colonel Wei and about six soldiers moved upstairs, where they faced insurgents. Union soldiers and insurgents exchanged fire for several seconds. The gunfight ended when a soldier through a grenade into the second floor - as it detonated, several bodies of the insurgents lied down on the floor. The remaining soldiers moved up the stairs and opened up to the roof. Insurgents were also there as well - the only difference was that there were MANPAD launchers as well. With quick situational awareness and rapid fire, soldiers managed to secure the roof as well. From the roof, Colonel Wei was about to start an attack across the street - but before he was able to do that, he and the rest of the soldiers were engulfed in an explosive attack, as an RPG struck the roof.

Tarek knew he was caught when he saw the men coming to strip him. Well this is it then, I guess.. He knew he would bring honor to his family by doing so, and he knew he would commit to his plan. At least I'll get to take out as many as I can, though perhaps not the head Cyrpiot. He watched as the men approached, guns raised. He waited until they were close. He reached into his shirt and pressed a button. The last thing he saw were flames. His chest exploded, the detonation instantly killing him and the few Cypriot men around him.

Jerusalem, The Levant
Eli peered around the edge of the building, looking out across no-man's land. Dim orange specks flickered in the distance, signalling the militant camps some 800 yards away.

Pulling up his binoculars, Eli scanned the the militant line. Black shapes fluttered in front of the fires, as fighters moved back and forth on their patrols, some stopping to chat or warm themselves by the fire. Good, they are relaxed, not expecting an attack. Scanning further down, he spotted the flames glinting off dark metal- old artillery the militants had organized into a battery, one that had just been shelling Jerusalem earlier today.

Letting the binoculars drop, Eli signaled to his men to assume position. Other militia commanders followed suit. Some eight-hundred irregulars were lined up for the assault on the eastern siege camp, one that had been resistant to air and artillery strikes for the past month of the siege. However, with pressure relieved on the Tel-Aviv front, armored divisions had been dispatched to Jerusalem, providing much needed reinforcements.

Eli gritted his teeth, and jogged around the corner. The militia followed suit. Eight-hundred padded feet began running across the field, spewing a cloud of dust in the air. The militants could not see the cloud in the dim light, granting the irregulars precious more time to close the gap. At roughly four-hundred yards, the mass began a rough, though rhythmic shout. Carried by the wind, the shout immediately caught the attention of guards on duty, who raised the alarm. The line began bustling with activity, as militants scrambled to their positions as a siren rang out. Shots began ringing from the barricades, completely missing the approaching host. Eli yelled for the men to get down, as more and more militants manned the line. At this moment, several missiles streaked down from the sky, slamming into militant positions and setting man and metal aflame. The Jerusalem militia rose, and began their charge once again.

//this will not help my country but it will prolong the RP//
Chelyabinsk, URS
Ivan sighed, no doubt leading to them becoming fully commited to this. "I can yes but remember, this is an idea. The people fighting behind it will go to the last man and no doubt go guerrilla when my forces push south. Uprisings have been at a minimum in my country. Once I do this though they will come. Let me make a few more calls and my troops will be on their way." Ivan said hanging up the phone. The decision had been made. Ivan dialed another number, the phone rang.

5 hours later. 10 miles north or Irganchay, Armenia
"Listen Up! We are about to move south into another country. A country full of people that want you and everyone like you dead! You and your buddy's lives depend on how much you don't want these people to put you in an early grave. Do I make myself clear?"

"Yes gunny!" Everyone shouted in unison.

"Let's show these fuckers what it is like to be wrecked!" Gunnery Sgt. Fredrick Hertz said standing on a T-99. He hopped off the T-99 and began walking. He saw some army soldiers being interviewed by the news. That made him angry. Noone ever pays much attention to the tankers. All war movies Fredrick had seen had focused on pretty much everyone but the tankers. It was their time to shine. They would be the ones to have movies written about them. As Fredrick thought about this he was walking towards a Prototype T-110, lovingly called the 'Tiger' after the German Tiger tanks. They were a marvel on engineering. A massive gun, insane motor and armor that put most heavy tanks to shame. His anger was quickly vanished as he touched it's treads.  He climbed up to the turret and entered the interior of the vehicle.

"Hey gunny!" The driver, Sgt. Alexey said

"Gunny, Anton isn't here yet." Cpl. Anya, the only female in the tank squadron. Anya was the gunner or the T-110

"He was outside wasn't he?" Fredrick asked.

"He was, just not paying attention. As usual." Replied PFC Yurtesky, the MG gun Ed and radio man. They all stared as Anton entered the vehicle.

"Sorry I'm late, had to grab these." He said opening a bag of twinkies.

"Only you Anton," Fredrick said eyeing the sweets. Anton's job in the tank was to call out targets and to load the gun. Fredrick was the commander, the one to spot all vehicles not spotted by Anton and to command the others. The crew was hand picked by General Uturi to man this tank. This T-110 was one of 5 in the platoon.

"All systems green sir." Alexey said starting up the engine.

"All units, we are moving in 5 mikes. 15 clicks from here is no man's land, when we start getting close keep your eyes peeled. We will have air support and will be followed by infantry and light vehicles. Move on my order." The radio buzzed.

It was go time.

Rome, Roma, Italia, Valen
January 9th 2019

Tore sighed as he stood in the Vatican, an independent territory still held by Grothbord and given autonomy to the Pope. He drank his wine as he stood at one of the windows of St. Peter's Cathedral. Nothing but hatred and fear mongering from the mad men running the church he was once a part of. He scoffed and tossed his wine to the ground below him, walking off from the snake pit he was surrounded by.

Within 24 minutes, the Pope had openly declared a Crusade on Valen. However, this did have a positive effect on Valen. Muslims across the countries vast majority began to see Valen as a mutual enemy of the Catholic Church. In days, Muslim leaders from the most secular to the most radical sought to remove any focus from attacks into Valen. Foreign Muslim attacks Valen dwindled to mere anarchist levels. Tore saw great support from Secular and inbetween Islamic leaders and even had a few Ibadi sects of Berber Extremists surrender to Valen on one term: They get to help put down Catholic attacks.

It appeared that Valen could no longer afford to help in the Middle East. The Star and Crescent began to hang over Valen. The Islamic Reform Act was passed by the Chamber, Senate, Council, and Tore himself within a month which gave several privileges to the Islamic faith. Law and Order remained secular, of course. Valen was not going to start stoning homosexuals. But time was allotted for prayer for non-public employees, although cut short into one cycle of prayer each. Valen adopted several Islamic economic laws and began to equally use Latin and Arabic as National Languages.

10 kilometers south of Kuwait City, Kuwait


While a brief battle had ended as Union victory upon Al Khiran (despite the 500+ deaths in the battle), a bulk of the Federal Eastern Union's Stormtrooper Division was continuing the advance through the Kuwaiti road systems - several Main Battle Tanks, Infantry Fighting Vehicles and other vehicles moved through the Kuwaiti deserts, ready to battle insurgents upon Kuwait City.

Aboard one of the Infantry Fighting Vehicles was Major General Vladimir Akula - the Vice Commander of the Stormtrooper Division. Though the true Divisional Commander was General Juan Merced (who was on the command post aboard an E-737), it was Commander Akula who was assigned to lead the real combat on the ground - meaning that he had to command the ground forces aboard the K-22 Infantry Fighting Vehicles.

Under the Operation plan, the Union IFV's and tanks began to push through Kuwait City - through the checkerboard streets of the city, they began the urban campaign against the rising insurgents. It was a fight of anti-tank missiles and heavy vehicles - a war of rocket against gun.

Suddenly, the 'Thunderstorm' Anti-Missile Defense System aboard Commander Akula's K-22 was activated - an RPG had been launched against the vehicle. It took about three seconds for the hard-kill system to intercept the missile: the F/G-Band radars tracking and calculating the projectile's path and its trajectory angle, the explosive interceptor being fired against the projectile, and destroying the RPG round before it struck the K-22. Once again, the 'Thunderstorm' Anti-Missile System had functioned well enough.

"The Thunderstorm System's working fine, to our luck," Commander Akula said, as they continued the advance. "If it wasn't, then we would've been dead by now."

The Infantry Fighting Vehicles continued their attack, as the insurgents began to retreat further north. Commander Akula saw the reason - not just because of Union vehicles, but they were preparing an ambush against Union vehicles: overloading the 'Thunderstorm' Defense System and destroying the vehicles with sheer numbers.

"Should we deploy the Demon, sir?" A soldier asked.

"The Demon..." Commander Akula considered. Then, he said, "This is urban combat, meaning that we'll have to use all means to gain victory. If we have the Demon within 3 kilometers, then absolutely."
