"With our nation no longer a superpower, its poverty skyrocketing, its people living in poor quality conditions, and its infrastructure shattered, the war we fight against the Federation is not for our own gains, not to challenge a technologically superior superpower, not to express our American Pride, but simply to survive as a nation under god, indivisible, with liberty, and justice for all"
- US Admiral Kyle Bates
The Federation-American War, or more commonly known as the Federation War, was a 12 year long conflict that broke out between the a now defunct world power United States of America and its allies against the Sole World Superpower, the Federation of the Americas and its allies. The war was fought between July 8th, 2075 to August 13th, 2087.
The war itself was the deadliest conflict in world history, and it caused the deaths of over 1.2 Billion People. The war also lead to some of the most destruction to the planet, completely changing the geography and climate of some places across the world. Ultimately the Federation-American War would greatly turn the tide of Global Politics for the rest of the world, and would ultimately lead to the very downfall of societal civilization.

Rise of the Federation
The issues surrounding the Federation War began in the 2030s after the end of the Russo-American War. This war was the largest the human race had ever known, and not only did it just end in a ceasefire, it decimated multiple regions of the world. The biggest of these issues was with the collapse of the states in the Middle East. The Middle East practically did not exist, and thanks to this many states, including Saudi Arabia fell into complete anarchy.
Because of the decline in oil from the Middle East, nations such as Russia, Ukraine, Iran, Canada, and other states began to decrease there trade in oil, and focus on other issues. In particular though, the nation states of South America were of most interest. Countries such as Venezuela, Argentina, and Chile were immensely oil rich countries, who helped fueled the economies of both Brazil and Ecuador. Given oppertunity that was upon them, the idea of a united South American State became a real possibility.
The "Federation of the Americas" as it became officially known, was formed on June 2nd, 2039, and officially consolidated power on June 15th, 2039, with the unification of Brazil, Argentina, and Chile into one nation. June 15th would soon become a national holiday known as "Federation Day." Initially, the unification didn't seem to important as the Federation of the Americas only had the 7th largest economy in the world, and its military was a hodgepodge of equipment from various sources. But, this was about to change.
With the events of the Great Collapse, the European-Iranian War, the Latin-American Wars, and the PMC Wars, the Federation of the Americas went from an impoverished nation state with a joke military, to the worlds sole superpower and largest economy in the world by 2070. The Federation exceeded all expectations that was put upon them from outside powers, so much so that the Federation had consolidated power over most of South America.
With the formation of the Federation of the Americas, a political challenger entered the ring. This challenger was a country that had for over a century prior been interfering in South American politics, and it didn't take to kindly to a new large country in its hemisphere. The nation? The United States of America. The United States having done some questionable acts in Latin-America, it lead to some political distrust between the two states.
There were minor skirmishes between the two states between the years of 2039 and 2075. Some examples of these included a Federation F-15 and MiG-29 fighter aircraft being shot down by American F-52 fighter jets, a Federation Destroyer colliding with a US Destroyer off the coast of Bermuda, the US voting against a canal being built across Nicaragua by China, the United States supporting the European-Iranian War and the Federation being against it, amongst other skirmishes. In addition, the Federation of the Americas went from a radical transition from a First World Democratic Government to a Authoritarian Theocracy.
By 2065, a new Federation President "Adrian Rojas" was sworn into office of President of the Federation of the Americas. He was an extreme centrist and idealistic person, and one who was deeply enligned with Theology and Catholicism. Being a former commander of the United Nations Special Service Unit during the great collapse, he was very popular amongst Federation Leadership. During his time in office, he was known to be staunchly anti-foreign ideals.
Invasion of French Guinea
In the year 2073, a referendum was held by the people of the European Federation Dominion of French Guinea. The referendum was funded in part by the Federation, a referendum was held inside French Guinea and Guyana whether to break away from the European Federation. This request was ultimately put down, but after two more attempts in the following years, the European Federation had enough and sent troops to the region to effectively occupy the territories. The Federation of the Americas wasn't to fond of this, claiming that the European Union was trying to dismantle everything the Federation of the Americas stood for.
By June of 2075, Federation President, Adrian Rojas, had enough, and later on ordered the Federation Military to invade the European Federation Territories of French Guinea and Guyana. This brilliant action was condemned internationally. To underline his point, Adrian ordered the military to use brute force, and the subsequent genocide of the region saw the deaths of thousands if not millions of people. After the invasions, the British Commonwealth and the European Federation complained to the United Nations about how the invasion was unjustified, and demanded that UN Peacekeepers be sent to the region. This request was passed by the remnants of the United Nations Security Council.
Due to the Federation being the most predominant economic power on the planet, the Federation and many of its allies simply walked up and left. As the tension grew, things finally tipped over. On June 29th, 2075, the Federation Military and UN Peacekeepers accidentally engaged each other in the region, leading to the deaths of 30 UN Peacekeepers. When the news was broke to the world, this was the final straw for the United States and European Powers, who had been trying to contain Federation Expansion.
Since the creation of the Federation of the Americas in 2039, the United States and the Federation had gotten into many skirmishes with each other, and given what happened during the Russo-American War, the Federation wasn't to keen on dealing with foreign nations. This ultimately had cultivated to a sense of political and societal distrust between the two nations, despite the United States no longer being a superpower. This discontent between the two nations given how the Federation had transformed itself from a First World Democratic Nation to an Authoritarian Catholic Theocracy, this would inevitably lead to some kind of conflict, which it ultimately did.
Operation Return to Sender
July 8th, 2075
On July 8th, 2075, two months into the crisis, the United States launched a full-scale invasion into the Federation. The landing site chosen was Northern Brazil, as this is what happened during the PMC Wars. The Federation was caught almost completely off-guard, and soon the United States was able to set up a successful beachhead. After that, they began to sweep across the North of Venezuela pushing towards Caracas (The Federation Capital), and South into Guyana, Suriname, and French Guinea. The aim of the invasion was to dismantle the Federation from the inside, and force its capitulation.
July 10th, 2075
After the US invasion into Federation territory, the United States launched a Second Invasion of the Island of Cuba, which had joined the Federation back in the 2040s. The United States, having long time issues with Cuba, this time took drastic action against the pro-Federation Cuban Government. The US took the fight directly to the Cubans, practically glassing the Islands military capabilities off the face of the Earth. The Cubans, having long time issues with the United States, took up arms against the United States Military, but it was essentially no use.
By the next day, the United States had captured Havana, practically glassing the the Island off the face of the Earth. Almost immediately, the United States seized arms from the Cubans, and shipped them out to the United States. Most of the Cuban Arms were from Russian Origin that were donated to the Federation cause. The US also started implementing a policy to quell the resistance, buy using a list that the old Cuban Government had its citizens. The US also seized factories, and soon began Americanizing the Island. Cuba would remain under US Occupation throughout the remainder of the war.
July 12th, 2075
On July 12th, American forces entered the capital of the Federation, Caracas, Venezuela. The Federation forces defended the Capital Fiercely, with President Rojas personally staying behind and actively fighting as a soldier. However, due to the United States, and the fact that the Federation had never properly mobilized, the Federation were slowly losing the fight. To prevent the Federation from becoming just another mark in the history books, Rojas ordered something so outrageous, it became one of the most widely known events in world history.
A missile launcher opened fire on a dam that was constructed above the city. The dam, one of the largest of it's kind, was destroyed. The city began to flood as thousands of gallons of water swept into the city. Most of the city was destroyed and almost half of the entire 167,000 men US invasion force sent to Caracas was destroyed. Rojas, realizing that the city was now destroyed, he attempted to evacuate South to wait for the flood waters to recede and then counterattack. However, US fighter jets managed to take out his escape helicopter. Rojas managed to jump out of the helicopter, and into the floodwaters, according to US intelligence he was declared KIA.
July 20th, 2075
After the death of Adrian Rojas in the Flood of Caracas, the Federation gained a new leader and supreme Military Commander, Adrian Rojas's daughter, Rosa Cossette D'Elise. Rosa was the "cream of the crop" for international politics. Having a degree in history, biology, physical science, and many others, she was an Astronaut for the Federation Space Program. Now being only 25 years old, Rosa had ascended to the chair of President of the Federation of the Americas. Rosa however was a nationalist towards the Federation, and watching as the United States destroyed the center of her nation (Caracas), revenge grew within her. In her opening statement as President, she stated...
"Compatriots of the Federation of the Americas. Today, our national sovereignty as an independent state, has been disrupted by a nation that for 200 years has made claim to its final territorial demand over this continent. Our Capital may be flooded, with the blood of our loyal soldiers lying in the street, but I can assure you of a pasture new. We are a nation of unique and vibrant culture. A nation that has stood the last forty years to being mocked by the international community to a nation that cannot be shaken from a resolve of one goal, independence! As the new President of the Federation! We stand at war against the United States of America and there imperialist European Monarchs! Today we stand by each other in comradery and by our flag as a nation and people ready to withstand the test of times as leader of the new world!"
- Rosa Cossette D'Elise
In the aftermath of her speech, Rosa Cossette D'Elise issued a call to arms. All Boys and Girls who were physically capable of contributing to the war effort would be conscripted into the army, except those were to young, had jobs, were pregnant, bared children less than 12, Physically Disabled, Mentally Disabled, the Blind, etc. But in addition to these, thousands of people rallied to the cause of the Federation, and thousands more took to the street in anti-American demonstrations. American Flags were burned, stores with American products were raided and burned. Within just weeks, the Federation armed forces went from a rough 2.6 Million Members, to a grand total of 25 Million Members (Both Soldiers and employees). In addition, thousands of people across the Federation took up cause for the war effort, such as jobs, news outlets, etc. To the outside world, 845 Million people who lived inside Federation Territory rallied to the flag. In a 196-4 vote, the declaration of war against the United States passed, mostly being opposed by Communist/Socialistic factions.
With the assault on Caracas ending in a complete and total disaster, the Federation started making significant gains, pushing into American Occupied sections of Brazil. The people of the Federation, who were heavily influenced by state run propaganda, started resisting the American Forces. This included sabotaging American Convoys. The US High command, realizing they didn't have any choice, the American Military command ordered a retreat. The plan was to retreat from Federation territory, then go to Panama and set up a defensive line. The Federation had set its sights on the Panama Canal.
By this point, there was no avoiding war between the two countries. The United States despite returning to normalcy was almost a Pariah State in comparison to the Federation. However, the United States was now facing an immediate threat, and this war was about survival. It was to late, the "Federation-American War " had begun. The Federation eventually managed to regroup, and soon took its fight straight to the United States, launching an invasion of Panama through the now drained Darien Gap.
Under the leadership of Rosa Cossette D'Elise, the Federation Generals were ordered to chase and hunt down the retreating Americans. In response to Cossette's call for war, the Federation Navy sailed down the Panama Canal, and started wrecking the American ships. The US forces tried putting up a good fight, but it was no use. The Federation officially seized the Panama Canal from Panama, but the Darien Gap ultimately prevented the Federation from taking the entire country. The Federation Air Force also started sending waves of bombers toward the Florida Peninsula. Despite American defenses placed in Occupied Cuba, the Federation Air Force managed to regularly hit Key West, Miami, and as far north as Orlando.
Thanks to the nationalism promoted by Federation President Cossette, the Federation of the Americas was now pushing North, heading into Central America. The Federation charged into Panama at full speed, successfully capturing the Panama Canal, and preventing American shipping through the canal. Regular raids soon began over Central American Cities as the Federation Declared War on the Organization of American States. The US Air Force worked around the clock to quell the Federation attacks as the Federation began there assault by invading Haiti and the Dominican Republic, as well Costa Rica.
The European Federation officially placed an embargo against the Federation, and began to strengthen there relationship with the United States. In response to the Federations deliberate acts of aggression, the United Nations kicked the Federation of the Americas out of the UN Security Council. Thanks to this action, many nations who were economically aligned with the Federation simply withdrew there membership and left the United Nations. This as a result lead to a huge power gap and political division never before seen since the Cold War. You either supported the Federation, or you supported the United States, you couldn't be both.
The Orbital Defense Initiative
As the Federation continued to push it's way North into Nicaragua and Honduras, the United States Government realized that it needed to gain the upper hand. In secret, and defying the outer space treaty, the "Orbital Defense Initiative" or ODIN for short was born. The ODIN Program was apart of the United States Space Force. The aim of the program was to create a new series of Kinetic Bombardment Projectiles that could turn the tide of the war.
The program was a clear violation of the Outer Space Treaty, however nobody on the allied side seemed to care. Thanks to the new industrial production that was coming up from the war against the Federation, the United States was able to begin production of the new ODIN Space Station Orbital platform. The first components were placed into Orbit in late 2076, just as Federation troops began to cross into Honduras.
Federation Invasion of the United States
By the time 2077 rolled around, Federation troops were invading El Salvador and Guatemala. At this point, European troops were starting to arrive in greater numbers to the front. The peoples of these countries were caught in the crossfire between the defending Organization of American States and NATO against the Federation.
By the time of the Federation Invasion of Mexico, the world's first ODIN Satellite was put into orbit in July of 2077 in near complete and total secrecy. The weapon was almost ready for operation, and was due to be used against Federation forces who were now entering Mexico. However, Federation Spies within the United States learned of the weapons existence, and were horrified.
On July 4th, 2077, the Federation spies within the United States notified the Federation High Command and Federation Government about the Orbital Defense Initiative and the first ODIN Satellite. The Federations Government met in a bit of an emergency panic, and began discussing what to do. If the weapon became operational, the war against the United States could end in barely a year, perhaps less. Considering the few options on the table, the Federation high command decided on a risky option, one that would turn the war into a whole new meaning.
On July 10th, 2077, Federation Astronaut's comprising of mostly Federation PMC Elite hijacked the Orbital Defense Initiative Space station. Using equipment they brought up with them, the Federation was able to hijack the satellites weapons systems. Within minutes, the Federation had control over the entire US Nuclear Arsenal and the weapons satellite. Uploading the targets, the Federation opened fire. Across the Southwestern United States, the US made kinetic rods hit cities across the Southwest and Northern Mexico. Had it not been for the courageous efforts of the Astronauts on the space station, the entire United States could have been destroyed. Despite this, the notable cities that were destroyed included...
- Austin, Texas (destroyed)
- Caldera Peak, Colorado (destroyed)
- Dallas, Texas (Destroyed)
- El Paso, Texas (Destroyed)
- Fort Worth, Texas (Destroyed)
- Houston, Texas (Destroyed)
- Las Vegas, Nevada (Destroyed)
- Los Angeles, California (Partially destroyed)
- New Orleans, Louisiana (Destroyed)
- Phoenix, Arizona (Destroyed)
- San Antonio, Texas (Destroyed)
- San Diego, California (Destroyed)
By the time the ashes settled, most of the entire Southwest, United States and part of Northern Mexico had been completely obliterated by the Tungsten ODIN Rods. The casualties were immense, with a grand total of 37 Million Americans, and 4 million Mexicans who were trying to flee the war dying. In addition to the K.E.M Strike, the Federation using its Cyber Warfare technique plugged into the American Defense Grid simply known as "Julius" and took control of the US Nuclear Arsenal. With this technique, the Federation practically managed to disable or destroy the US Nuclear Arsenal, preventing it from launching. Those Nuclear Missiles that did launch were mostly outdated minute man missiles, but they were destroyed by Federation Missile Shields.
With the United States Military and Government in complete and total dismay, Federation forces crossed the border from Mexico, and attacked. The United States Military was scattered not knowing what exactly was going on, and as a result, the Federation had initial success in the Southern United States as the US States of Texas (Destroyed) Arizona (Destroyed) New Mexico (Destroyed), Utah (Partially destroyed) Colorado (Partially destroyed), Nevada (Partially destroyed), Kansas, Oklahoma (Partially destroyed) Missouri, Arkansas, and Louisiana (Partially destroyed) soon became completely overrun. However, the United States, after realizing what was happening, were able to consolidate and counterattack, and after a decisive battle at the battle of Fresno and St. Louis, the US Military was able to hold the Federation back, but it was to late.
The Federation were now on American Soil, and were pushing up towards Kansas City, Missouri and Cheyenne, Wyoming. By this point, Canada had declared war against the Federation, and European troops were arriving in greater numbers, however the combined economies of these countries wasn't enough to match the economy of the Federation. Realizing the importance of what was at stake, the US desperately tried to hold lines at the Rocky Mountains and the Mississippi River, with the aim of creating a funnel that the Federation could only go through. This kind of battle tactic worked very well for the Americans at first, but it would come back to bite them in the rear.
United Nations Security Command.
As the United States was getting invaded, the European Federation, in a moment of comradery for the Americans, declared war against the Federation of the Americas. Almost immediately, the United States, Canada, the European Federation, India, the United Korean Republic, Japan, and other states came together to form the "Strategic Alliance Team Operations" or "SATO", which was conjoined effort between the allied nations. With this new combined force, the new "United Nations Security Command" was formed and replaced the original United Nations.
Confederation of Independent Nations
The Federation of the America's struck back against the United Nations Security Command, forming the "Confederation of Independent Nations" headquartered in Rio De Janeiro. This alliance was between the Federation of the Americas, People's Republic of China, the Islamic Republic of Iran, Pakistan, and many other African Nations (Top clients of the Federation). However the Confederacy of Independent Nations was literally just the United Nations Security Council dominated by the Federation. These two organizations would be the mainstay behind the Federation-American War.
Assault on the West Coast
On 15 January 2079, the Federation of the Americas launched a massive naval, amphibious, and air assault against the city of San Francisco. Using repurposed civilian freighters disguised as Asian Cargo Ships, the Federation covertly transported hundreds of soldiers, vehicles, and equipment (at least the equivalent strength of several divisions; a corps) past the U.S. Pacific Fleet and landed on the Port of San Francisco. The Federation swiftly crushed the U.S. Army and National Guard units there, forcing them to retreat to the countryside. Using the Chaos of the San Francisco, the Federation moved through No Mans land, and proceeded to attack Los Angeles, California. Using the captured railroads and other infrastructure to there advantage, the Federation created a large funnel to the California front.
Realizing the situation that was at stake, the US President ordered any means necessary to defend there Western Territory, however, thanks to the Federation taking over the interior of the country, these efforts were heavily tampered by Federation bombing raids. Thanks to the lack of reinforcements, and the Federation Navy blocking the US Pacific Fleet from reaching the California front, the campaign in the west went completely swift. The Federation continued there honorable campaign by soon launching an audacious attack up Northwards towards Portland and Seattle, as well as into the Dakota's in a campaign of rapid dominance.
As the attack Northward progressed, the Federation proceeded by an air assault into Iowa and Illinois on the 24th of April, 2079. The cities of Omaha, Chicago, Des Moines, and other cities along the Mississippi were attacked heavily attacked by Federation Air and Armored divisions. The United States Military did everything that it could to prevent the Federation from crossing the Mississippi, leading to sometimes literal bayonet charges by US forces. By the time summer 2079 rolled around, the Federation were on the verge of taking Seattle, but thanks to some help from there loyal Canadian troops, the allied forced managed to repel the assault on Seattle.
By Christmas of 2079, the Federation of the Americas claimed it had captured every US state West of the Mississippi River, however in reality there were still many areas that were controlled by the US Government, and some were even controlled by American Resistance. Rosa Cossette D'Elise and the Federation leadership were quite upset about the lack of progress in the American Campaign. With the formation of the United Nations Security Command, the US had plenty of reinforcements it could bring in to bring the war to a stalemate. Worse still, some of the UNSC Nations such as in the United Korean Republic Japan, and Australia were right near China, Laos, and Cambodia (All Federation allies), and posed a serious threat. Realizing the threat that was in place, the Confederation of Independent nations began preparation to expand the war.
Chinese Invasion of Southeast Asia
In October 2080, after months of preparation, the Confederacy of Independent Nations launched their attack. Chinese Bombers took off and began performing full-scale bombing raids over Korea, Japan, Vietnam, and Taiwan. China soon went on the offensive, invading Mongolia, Nepal, and Butahn. These countries were in no position to fight back against the Chinese invasion, and within the first hours, these nations fell. On the Korean Peninsula, Chinese troops launched there invasion of the United Korea Republic, capturing many of the former North Korean cities. While the land invasions began, so did the amphibious invasions.
China launched an all out invasion of Taiwan, glassing the Island off the face of the Earth. China occupied Hong Kong as well, and using Hong Kong to launch a massive land invasion of Vietnam, Burma, Malaysia, and Indonesia. Japan suffered regular bombing raids from the Peoples Republic of China, with the aim of destroying Japan's Industrial might to allow for a future invasion. Pakistan soon joined the Peoples Republic of China, and the two countries began to settle there scores with India by invading Kashmir and Northern India. The Chinese/Federation Offensives into Southeast Asia were of great concern, as this was the industrial heartland of the world.
Federation Invasion of Europe
On November 11th, 2080, during the World War I Celebrations, the Federation of the Americas detonated several Chemical Weapon WMDs across major European Cities, leading to the deaths an untold millions of people. In addition, the Federation next detonated four large thermonuclear weapons in the Ionosphere above the European Federation, which disabled European Electronics and grinded the continent to a halt. This in turn allowed the Federation to essentially have little to no resistance.
The Federation landings began on November 13th, 2080 with the shock of the Chemical Attacks. Federation Soldiers from there allies in North Africa landing in Portugal, Spain, Gibraltar, Andorra, Sicily, and Croatia, using amphibious and land vehicles for the main assault. Federation PMC Elite were deployed across Europe to sabotage and disrupt communications between allied soldiers. Under the command of former UNSSU officers, the Federation were able to defeat most of the UNSC Forces across the Italian and Iberian Peninsula's, as well as in the Mediterranean Sea.
After the successful invasion of the Iberian Peninsula, the Federation proceeded to launch a direct attack against France. The Federation supported by Chinese, Libyan, Iranian, and other soldiers attacked with full-force, allocating most of their Category-A Class Armored Divisions into the assault against the European Federation. With the communications severed, the European Federation were unable to contact there allies for a possible counterattack. With Spain, Portugal, and Andorra completely under control, the Federation of the Americas proceeded to invade several neighboring Allied states. Italy and Switzerland soon fell, followed by the entirety of France. From here, the Federation launched numerous attacks against the Balkan nations of former Yugoslavia, as well as Greece, and Turkey.
After successfully taking over France, the Federation prioritized the UK for its vital air corridor. Taking it would certainly demoralize the European Federation. However, they discovered many large anti-air defenses in the UK so they decided to launch a direct assault across Southern England. As Federation Forces entered the UK, a fierce battle between the European Federation/British Troops and the Federation military began. Although the European Federation and British troops valiantly defended their homeland with all their might, the Federation ultimately succeeded in their goal, and captured London.
The Europeans fought bravely till the very end, but they simply were simply outmatched. The Federation of the Americas had taken most of the European Continent, and there was no point in letting more innocent people die to achieve the same result. After a three month long invasion, the European Federation, the most technologically advanced of the former great powers, signed the peace treaty, and surrendered to the Federation. The Europeans lost almost 80% of there armed forces while the Federation only less than a fourth of that. The Continent was destroyed worse than the Second World War, and thousands of Civilians were dead.
With new rearmaments from the Federation of the Americas, the Islamic Republic of Iran reignited its hostilities. For a second time in 20 years, Iran launched another invasion of the countries of Kuwait, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia. Their plan was to reclaim the lands of the former Persian Empires, expanding the Iranian version of Islam throughout the Middle East and North Africa. These countries practically did not exist, at this point, and had been in complete anarchy since the time of the Russo-American War. This would given Iran time to settle its scores with its century old rivals.
Iranian troops began there attack against Basra, Iraq, before they turned South towards the lawless region of Kuwait. The UNSC had a large number of troops in the region to keep it in order, and from the conflict against the Peoples Liberation Resistance several years earlier. The nations of Bahrain, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates were essentially placed under occupation of the UNSC to prevent there attacks. Using Federation built ships, the UNSC Navies clashed with the Iranian and Federation navies in the Persian Gulf, however the superior navy of the UNSC against the miniscule Iranian One made it a one sided battle. In other parts of the Middle East, Iranian Forces battled Israeli Forces across the region, with the IDF being seen across countries they typically would not be seen in. In places like Jordan, Syria and Lebanon, brutal fighting broke out between the invading Iranian Forces, and the IDF and other groups in the region. Although Iran claimed to have taken control of these countries, in reality they were still in complete and total anarchy.
At the end of the Federation Conquest of Europe, the United States slowly was reduced by the Federation. The Federation launched an audacious offensive across the Mississippi, using over 10 battle groups to conquer the Eastern territories, however, the United States Military, realizing what was at stake, allocated almost there entirety of there infantry to the defense. This would make or break the United States future as a nation, and luckily for the Americans, they were gonna get it.
The Federation attacked down through the upper peninsula of Michigan, and down through Michigan. From the upper peninsula, the Federation successfully landed in Michigan City, Indiana, and began pushing outward towards Chicago and and down South. The Americans this time around had started getting there act together, and rained hell on the Federation advance. At the same time as the Federation was moving south from Michigan, the Federation attacked the United States at New Orleans and in East St. Louis, Missouri. The Federation however was stunned at American veracity, and no matter how hard they tried they couldn't break the American Lines.
As the Federation lines in the South were having difficulty, the Federation forces in the North were having much better luck. As the Federation attacked South from Michigan, the Federation managed to link up with there forces attacking Chicago and Michigan City. With this successful link up, the Federation soon began to pushed across Chicago, before the Federation soon found trouble at the Ohio River. The Federation then started attacking eastward, following the Ohio River trying to outflank the Americans. However, after the Battle of Pittsburgh lead into a decisive Federation Victory, the Americans retreated to the East.
By November 2081, after the eight month long offensive, the Federation successfully conquered the Northeastern United States. While all hope seemed lost for the United States, little did anybody know, the Federation was also in a strange problem. The Federation had exhausted almost its entire resources into the Eastern offensive. The United States Government was still alive, however the US had been reduces from fifty to just the 12 US states of Kentucky, West Virginia (Partially) ,Virginia, Tennessee, Mississippi, South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Alaska, and Hawaii. Washington D.C was temporarily evacuated, and the US moved there government operations to Atlanta, Georgia as Washington D.C would soon become under siege.
As the United States had been reduced, Canada on the other hand was able to get some upper hands against the Federation. The Canadian geography, especially in the west, made invasion very difficult. Using guerilla style tactics, sometimes even blowing up entire mountains, the Federation advance into Canada was extremely difficult. Eventually though, the Federation decided to make one final charge into Alberta in order to capture the oil fields there, but the Federation didn't make it hardly anywhere. By Christmas, the Canadians and the Federation were in a stalemate with trench systems and bunkers dividing the region.
After the fall of Europe, the European Federation Government fled to Canada and formed a government in exile. With them, the European Federation brought over naval assets, ground assets, troops, you name it. The United States, realizing what was at stake, upgraded its infrastructure and had put its factories into overdrive to produce the new assets needed to renew the war.
By the time January 2082 rolled around, the world looked different, very different. The remnants of the United Nations Security Command had fled to Africa, Saudi Arabia, Australia, and New Zealand. The European Federation Government and the British Monarchy had fled to Canada, and the remnants of the European and British navies had also fled. Despite stalemated combat at the Mississippi River, the Appalachian Mountains, and Southern Canada, the UNSC was forced to reorganize.
Inside Federation Occupied Territory, particularly in the Americas, Resistance to the occupation was rampant. The world wherever the Federation was was in complete anarchy. As the US Government put it...
"This world that we live in, its almost unrecognizable. Imagine a Syrian Civil War and a Mexican Revolution, but 10 times worse. Law and Order has completely fallen in not just the occupied United States, but in Europe, Africa, and Asia. Its hard to imagine how anybody can go through this turbulent time" - US President David Kyle.
To quell the situation as much as possible, the United Nations Security Command decided to enlist some "assistance." The UNSC hired Private Military Contractors to be deployed inside both Federation Occupied Territory, and Federation Territory itself. The aim was to disrupt Federation war efforts as much as possible. These PMC's were supported by S.A.S, Special Operations Command, US Green Berets, and Resistance cells inside the occupied zones. Together, they unleashed hell. They destroyed bridges, tore up railroads, burned down Federation bases, and disrupted Federation supply convoys.
These efforts had proved valuable. So much so, that the Federation found itself short of the materials and equipment needed to conquer the last remaining territories in the United States. With the time on there hands, the United States, Canada, the exiled European Federation, and resources coming up from Central American War Lords, the United Nations Security Command was able to successfully begin the rearming process, and prepare for one final stand.

After the ceasefire agreement between the United States and the Federation of the Americas, the Federation had found itself in a bit of a pickle. The Federation had set up the puppet governments of the "General Assembly of American Territories" to govern the occupied United States, and the "General Assembly of European States" to govern the occupied European Federation. However it was very clear that the Federation couldn't govern both territories on there own and fight the war at the same time.
After some consideration, the Federation of the Americas and there allies set up a new puppet government, "The United Earth Government." A unification of all the occupied territories of the Federation in North America, Europe, Africa, and Asia under one banner. The aim of this new puppet was to give the Federation an increased chance of controlling the territories, but to gather resources, and gather volunteers for the armed forces. In theory, the two should have operated independently from one another, but the leaders of the United Earth Regime were only mere figureheads to there Federation Overseers.
The Federation of the Americas in many ways attempted to "renew" civilization. Using there resources they built new infrastructure projects across all occupied territories. This included a Canal through the Balkans, another Canal through the Caucasus to link the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea, and many other roads railways and infrastructure. In one case, the Federation of the Americas built a brand new railroad between New York and Los Angeles that could traverse the USA in only 36 hours. Despite these attempts, resistance was still high across all occupied territories.
To ensure the balance of power between the United Earth Regime and the Federation of the Americas, the Confederacy of Independent Nations was officially instated as the new United Nations to try and keep the peace between the two parties.
Since before the start of the war, relations between Russia and the Federation had been relatively good. Russia became the Federations biggest supplier of arms. However, as time went on, and especially as the Federation started reverse engineering Russian, American, Chinese, and other Military Equipment, the Federation grew to not need Russian Equipment. The Russians were essentially selling away there equipment that was never going to be used.
In addition, with the new United Earth Regime, the lack of official trade was quite damaging to the Russian Federation. The biggest though to the relationship between the Russian and Federation Governments was that the Federation was a Authoritarian Theocratic State that was essentially doing all of its acts as what it believed was in the realm of Catholicism. Russia was an athiest nation, and therefore this lead to some "disagreements" between Russia and the Federation.
These ultimate disagreements came to a heading, when the Moscow Government refused to stop trading with the remaining United States Government. This include food and oil supplies, which the Federation hoped to starve the US of. Eventually, the Federation offered Russia the still under US controlled Alaska, but Russia refused, stating that Alaska was in no position to conquer and was of relative unimportance. The Federation did not like this, and Rosa Cossette D'Elise was furious at Russia's lack of hostility to a nation (The US) that they were at war with only 60 years prior, and furiously wrote that Russia was on the wrong side.
Russian attitude towards the Federation of the Americas was starting to change. However, as the relationship remained, Russia had a realization. The Moscow Government soon realized that if the Federation were to conquer the United States, sooner or later, the Federation would conquer Russia and then the world. Realizing the threat, the Russians sooner or later began distancing themselves from Federation politics, but as long as nothing happened, Russia couldn't go to war. Unfortunately, something would happen that would drag Russia into the war.
Second Battle of New York
On March 25th, 2083, the United States military ran an amphibious landing operation to retake the now Federation occupied New York City, using combined effort of the US Army, Resistance Fighters, European, and Canadian Forces. United Nations Security Command Forces successfully landed at Orchard, Coney Island, and and Rockaway Beach, and began to push inwards into Midland Manhattan. Upon entering the city it was discovered that Federation had a radio signal jammer on top of the Empire State building. As long as this jammer was in place, it would allow the Federation to basically control the skies.
Realizing the importance, the UNSC ordered the Empire State building to be demolished using whatever resources they had. The only resource available to do such a task was the USS Wisconsin (Which had been recommissioned). After the Empire State building and the surrounding areas were leveled, the Federation unexpected lost the entire Northeast Air Defense Sector to the Americans. With this loss, American Forces breezed through, and successfully retook New York City. The Federation Commander in charge of United Earth Regime and the Confederacy of Independent Nations in this sector ordered soldiers to stay behind to delay the inevitable as mush as possible, which proved to be ineffective. After clearing New York City of the remaining enemy troops, the UNSC launched a series of counterattacks to push inland.
Recapture of Baltimore
As the remainder of US, Canadian, and European forces moved into the Inland United States, Baltimore, a Federation stronghold was cut off from the Federation territory in the United States. The allied forces and the regular U.S. Army advanced to retake the city. Initially, a US Special Forces team and the American Resistance were sent into Baltimore to raid a Federation barracks. Upon capturing the Barracks and destroying several Federation Vehicles, the Federation Generals tried to flee the city, back into Federation Territory, however, they were captured.
As the US Military was moving into, Central Command got word that the Federation was getting ready to ship two WMD's out of the city via cargo planes. When US forces got to the airport, they found two Federation Y-8 Gunships, one was flying it away until the US Air Force managed to shoot it down. The recon teams were sent to extract the WMD, however as they got to it, they found that there was only one of the WMD's the other one was missing. The Federation retreated from Baltimore, leaving the Northeastern Sector of occupied America back into the hands of the United States Government.
Battle of Norfolk, Virginia
Sometime during the Battle of Baltimore, the UNSC diverted some of its resources after learning that the Federation was going to attempt a raid at the city of Norfolk, Virginia. Since the ceasefire had been signed, Norfolk, Virginia has been a vital industrial and financial center to help rebuild the Americans Naval, Air, and Ground assets. If this city were to be destroyed, it would mean that the entire offensive in the Northeast could come crashing down. Realizing this, the United States came up with a very clever course of action.
As the Federation and Confederacy of Independent Nations Navies came into port, the Americans had rigged the dock with explosive decoys. When the Federation pulled into port, the explosives detonated, leading to several ships getting sunk. In that moment, the US Navy which had been stationed South of there encircled the entire Federation Fifth Fleet, and trapped it inside Norfolk. The resulting battle saw three of Aircraft Carriers Sunk, and 70% of the Federation Fifth Fleet destroyed. The Federation were so off-guard to the point that now, there was no point in fighting. The Federation were forced to retreat.
The Final Battle of Washington D.C
After the Battle of Norfolk, the Federation, embarrassed, marched on Washington D.C for the final time. As the Federation entered the city, it almost appeared that the city had practically been abandoned by the United States. In that moment though, US forces who were laying in wait, encircled and blockaded the Federation 114th Ground and 14th Air Divisions sent to take D.C. The Federation Forces, realizing they were trapped, enacted the "Scorched Earth" Policy. The Federation Air Force and Ground Divisions devastated civilian and federal property, including leveling the Senate Section of the Capitol Building, and the White House west wing.
Realizing that the citizens of Washington D.C were in great danger, the United States Government Authorized "Crown Evac" which would evacuate as many civilians South towards Richmond, Virginia. To achieve this, the United States sent in its 85th Air Squadron to try and distract as many Federation Air Vehicles as possible. UNSC Navy Seals took up positions on structures across Washington D.C to provide as much cover support as possible. However, in the chaotic fighting, the Federation knocked out the lead communications unit for forces in D.C, leading to confusion within NORAD on whether Washington D.C had fallen.
As a last ditch effort, NORAD Ordered a good chunk of US Forces from Norfolk and Baltimore to head for D.C and retake the city. The Federation troops stationed there were now trapped. As the Americans nd UNSC Squeezed in from all sides, they took out some of the Federations most elite special forces units, and nearly wiping out the Confederacy of Independent Nations forces to, but they managed to find a loophole in the system and escape D.C. In the span of roughly two months, the United States and UNSC had managed to take the Northeastern Sector of the United States, leaving almost all of the US States East of the Mississippi River back in the hands of the United States Government.
West Coast Offensive
As the United States Military established its foothold on the US Eastern Seaboard, the US Military command structure made a startling realization. The Federation had a larger industrial center and population than the UNSC. This meant that the Federation could keep out supplying the UNSC. With the narrow supply routes coming in from India, Australia, New Zealand, and other UNSC Resistance groups, the United States high command made a calculation that the Federation could overrun the US Mainland within two months tops. Realizing the threat, the US Command Structure decided that they needed to make a move, and fast.
In a surprise move that stunned even the Federation, the the United States Military lead the United Nations Security Command, using Alaska and Hawaii as a forward base in an all out offensive against the Federation Stronghold of San Francisco, Portland, Olympia, and Los Angeles. The Federation reinforced the beachfront with supplies coming in from the former US-Mexico Border, but the UNSC had a trick up there sleeve.
Launching from Marin County, near San Francisco, UNSC troops advanced from across the San Francisco bay and attempted to take the Golden Gate Bridge with ground personnel. However, Chinese AA guns, and Confederacy of Independent Nations Fighter aircraft significantly delayed the air assault. As U.S. Navy reinforcements arrived, the Federation made it a priority target to destroy the UNSC Naval Fleet entering the San Francisco Harbor. The UNSC realized this threat, and sent in disguised ships into the bay to protect the fleet to allow Special Forces to destroy or capture the naval defenses. As they began entering San Francisco side of the bridge, the Americans found themselves outgunned by a massive Confederacy ground units. However, in a major turn though for air superiority, the UNSC managed to capture and reprogram the Federation V-75, attaining air superiority for the allied air force.
At around the same time of the assault on San Francisco, the United States ran an amphibious landing across Santa Monica in the Second Battle of Los Angeles. US Forces sailed into the Channel Islands of California, and landed forces at the Santa Monica and Huntington Beaches, and began to push inland. US Forces however, after learning how to reprogram the AA guns, used its cyber warfare tactics to reprogram the guns. This decision allowed the UNSC to begin doing regular bombing raids across the United States West Coast. The Federation realizing they were outgunned pulled back from San Francisco and Los Angeles.
As the Federation started to retreat, the UNSC made there move, launching an offensive down from Canada and into the mountains of Washington State. The UNSC quickly moved into the mountains of Washington State and Oregon, and began paradropping reinforcements all across the US West Coast. Then, in a massive disaster for the Federation, UNSC forces captured the city of Portland Oregon, a major manufacturing hub for the Federation of the Americas. In the resulting battles, the UNSC began using the Federations own weapons against them. Realizing they were now outmatched, the Federation started to pull back. The UNSC officially reclaimed the US West Coast, and began pushing into the mainland.
After capturing Los Angeles, the UNSC made a very terrific discovery. The Federation had turned the entirety of Santa Monica into essentially a defensive fort, and the Federation had been caught so off-guard, that they had essentially left there Fort at Santa Monica completely armed. Given the information, the UNSC essentially scavenged the facility with all the intel they could find, which would prove to be a foreshadowing of how the UNSC would continue the fight against the Federation.
As the UNSC pushed into the former occupied United States, the severity and sheer brutality of the war on American Soil became realized. Throughout the liberation campaign of the United States and Canadian Mainland's, camps and detention centers, which were ultimately used by the Federation, where American Political Prisoners were often worked and starved to death. To dispose of the victims, large and deep trenches, filled with the bodies of executed, overworked, or starved men, women, and children were scattered across cities across the USA.
As the campaign pushed deeper into the mainland United States, the scale of this industrial killing became evident. Some of the victims that were discovered appeared to have been operated on in some form of lobotomy. In addition, medieval torture tactics such as Gibbeting, the Iron Maiden, the Iron Mask, Shock Collars, and even the Iron Gag were used on the American Civilian Population. As the UNSC continued there campaign, the UNSC discovered something similar to the scorched earth policy similar to that of German Occupied Poland in the Second World War. At one point, the UNSC caught the Federation and the Commonwealth of Independent Nations massacring the city of Montrose, Colorado.
In addition to all of these tactics, it became evident of the even more brutality that was installed inside Federation Occupied America. There appeared to be a nationalized slave train running from New York City and other areas of the occupied United States down into the Federation. In addition, the UNSC discovered large groups of what appeared to be Biohazardous Waste from the burning and burial of dead bodies, to the creation of poisons and other Chemical Weapons using American DNA samples. In addition to these, the Federation cut off limbs of POW's, and in one case they found bodies with gouged eyes.
The final straw was the discovery of crimes such as stoning of people who were not faithful in there relationship, crucfixtion of those who were not loyal to the Catholic Church. Sometimes, it even appeared that the Federation did church blessings on the victims of the people they killed. Some Federation propaganda posters even indicated that the crimes they were committing were in the name of the Roman Catholic Faith. This genocide would go down in history as an event known as the "American Massacre." The estimates came in 258 million out of the 530 Million Americans living inside the occupied zone. When the genocide was leaked to the world, it would be an underestimate stating that there was outrage, there was a thirst for revenge.
Across the world, inside and outside of Federation occupied territory, armed riots and uprisings broke out. Even in the Peoples Republic of China, there were riots against the Federation. Some Federation troops deserted and defected to the Federation cause. One of the riots that particularly hit the Federation hard was in there European Colonies. Mostly those of German and Polish rose up against the Federation, and at one point took control of several cities, such as Munich, Warsaw, and Berlin, which promptly the Federation glassed off the face of the Earth.
Rosa Cossette D'Elise refused to show herself to the outside world, and had entrenched herself in the rebuilt Miraflores Palace. With her idea of letting the Federation Armed Forces have its separation from political affairs, she had essentially allowed the genocide to slip under her thumb. In a meeting with the Confederacy of Independent Nations, Cossette tried desperately to retain her image, but it was no good. Most of her allies withdrew there delegation, and went on there own path with the war.
Liberating the lower 48
With full support from the Disavowed UN Security Council, UNSC forces after taking back both US Coasts from Federation Control began to push into the Midwest United States. Due to the heavily entrenched fortifications and the Federation supply routes, progress was slow, but it was progress. In the Chaotic fighting, it was discovered that the Federation headquarters for operations on US soil was Chicago, currently being contested between UNSC forces coming down from the North, and US forces coming from the East. Realizing the importance of the city, the UNSC began to consider all options available into retaking the city rather than destroying it. The allies eventually went with a plan that was the least riskiest option, and soon put it into action.
The UNSC using disguised and modified riverboat gambling ships sailed into the Mississippi River, attacking and destroying Federation fortifications along the river. At the same time to distract the Federation main force, the UNSC started a bombing campaign along the Baja California Peninsula (Or what was left of it). With the distraction in full effect, the UNSC pushed into the states of Wisconsin and Minnesota, while US forces tried to attack the surrounding Chicagoland Area. The plan was to attack and capture the cities of Hammond, Indiana, Griffith Indiana, and Blue Island, Illinois. The reason for capturing these was simple, the Calumet Region. The Calumet Region was a major industrial center that the Federation was using for its war effort, in particular, this region was a vital rail junction that was supplying Federation Soldiers across the Mississippi, taking this region would be a big blow to the Confederacy of Independent Nations.
The Federation High Command was now in a very tough situation. If the UNSC retook Chicago, they would discover there entire war plans on defending there occupied territory, and it could reduce the war to a matter of months. However, if the city was destroyed, it would lead to a tragic loss of life for Federation Soldiers defending the city, and if it was destroyed then it was possible the entire Federation logistical system would collapse. As the US and UNSC pushed closer, the situation became more and more desperate for the Federation. Eventually, the United States Government retook the city of Griffith Indiana, a vital rail junction city that the Federation used to supply its front along the Mississippi. As the Federation High Command considered there options, the UNSC captured the city of Hammond Indiana. Now realizing that the UNSC had them surrounded, the Federation High Command made a decision.
On September 21st, 2083, the Federation of the Americas detonated a brand new kind of super weapon from Millennium Park, which was the same one that had been smuggled out of Baltimore. The resulting blast destroyed Chicago, and irradiated most of the surrounding countryside. The roughly four million remaining civilians that lived in Chicago, most of them being forcefully moved there by the Federation, were instantly vaporized. The 50,000 men Federation Occupation Force for Chicago was obliterated, and so was the UNSC attack force of 150,000 all vaporized. As the dust settled two weeks later, a "Glassing effect" ensued around Chicago, leaving Chicago almost entirely uninhabitable.
The Liberty Wall
After the UNSC offensives, the Federation finally managed to reorganize itself and stabilize the front lines. The Federation had now been pushed back to areas in Southern California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, and Alabama. This area given it was destroyed by the ODIN strikes was now known as "No Mans Land." Thanks to this stabilization along the now US-Federation Border, the United States Government passed a resolution to build a massive structure called the "Liberty Wall." A massive concrete structure with with command towers, checkpoints, etc. The aim of the project now was to divide the American Territory with Federation Territory.
This massive six story high structure began construction in mid 2084, and unlike the Border Wall project before it, this wall actually had support from the American Population. Using the combined resources of the Canadian, American, and European Economies, the wall began construction from New Orleans and Los Angeles, and were going to meet at what was once Oklahoma City. Despite multiple attempts for the Federation to break construction of the wall, the UNSC forces held there lines. In addition to these, US forces also effectively began to rebuild the country as best as possible, but evidently, the United States Government knew that it would only be a matter of time before the Feds would strike back.
As 2084 continued an American spy within the Confederacy of Independent Nations had gotten some information. The Federation during its occupation time had kidnapped several American Civilians, and had taken them to occupied Paris, France. The images she had taken were smuggled out and sent to NORAD. As the images were examined by NORAD, it soon became obvious what was happening. These civilians appeared to not just be American, but European as well, and it appeared they were being used as "test subjects." Their fears were fully confirmed when some of the recovered weapons in the liberation campaign of the US Mainland had uncovered a goldmine of biological weapons that could be used to kill specific ethnic groups.
The UNSC Command Structure after looking through any option they had on the table eventually decided that the only way left on the table was to liberate the Federation Occupied Europe. However the remaining UNSC forces from the defense of Europe were stranded in essentially was a lawless continent. Africa since the fall of Europe had been a complete mess, not only for the Federation but for the UNSC as well. The Confederacy of Independent Nations, the UNSC, and various other factions were fighting across the entire continent. The mission into Europe seemed like a suicide mission, that was until a new ally would enter the fight, an unexpected ally at most.
Surprise Russian Offensive
By this point in the war, the relationship between the Russian Federation and the Federation of the Americas were distancing themselves from each other. Russia, feeling threatened by the Federation, had secretly begun mobilization. But without any reason for war, the relationship between the two would remain calm. However, now that the Federation had committed some of the harshest atrocities ever seen since the end of the Second World War, public opinion towards supporting the Federation's cause began to sway.
The Russian Government expressed publicly, condemning the actions of the Federation. The Federation didn't respond to the criticism, but eventually Russia started ramping up production, and through its Comradery Act, Russia began selling weapons and equipment to the United States. This infuriated the Federation, who in turn banned all Russian shipping from the Panama Canal. Russia soon responded, by sending its naval fleet to escort ships through the canal. The tension was getting very high, and all it would take was one incident to light the fuze.
On May 17th, 2085, the Federation and Russia were set to negotiate terms to calm the tension. The Russian Envoy to the Federation was due to meet Federation Agents inside of Russian Occupied Europe. The aim was to calm the tension (And also discuss dividing Ukraine between themselves), however during the meeting in Berlin, the two sides were unable to come to an agreement, and the Russians walked out of the meeting calling the Federation the Nazi's of the 21st Century.
The Federation was furious. Not only had there once biggest arms supplier was backstabbing them in the back, they were now supporting there long time enemy. Given the circumstances, the Federation occupation force gave the orders to not let the Russian Envoy to cross into Belarus (Now part of the Russian Federation). When the Envoy reached the border, they were was stopped by Federation Occupation troops, and were given refusal to cross the border into Russia. Russia was outraged, and demanded that the envoy be let across. The Federation refused, and said they wouldn't let the envoy come across until the Russians negotiate.
On May 18th, Russia sent troops to the border, in order to escort vehicles across the border. The Federation was outraged, and they sent there own troops, as well as two of there transport vehicles to block the border crossing. Anybody who tried to cross into Russia, the Federation simply shot on sight. The Envoy was taken to a detention center at the border, which the Russians said was an illegal seizure of the diplomats. As a result, Russia (Who had been massing troops in disguise on the European Border), sent up five tanks up to the border, demanding the diplomats be let through.
The Russian Tanks rolled right up to the border, stopping just inches away. They also sent three MI-40 Attack Helicopters to the border to scare the Federation into submission. The Federation, undeterred, brought up there tanks, soldiers, and even two hover jets. The two allies were now facing each other down barrel to barrel. The Federations divisions were ordered to exercise restraint, but it was no use, the Federation still refused to cross the border.
On May 19th, 2085, the final straw came. The Russians forcefully closed the Federation Embassy in Moscow, and deported the Federation diplomats to the border. The Federation was once again upset, and demanded that Russia reopen the embassy, to which Russia refused. Finally though, the Federation had enough. They took the envoy to a room, and executed the Russian Envoy on the spot. The Federation PMC Elite then dumped the bodies on the Russian side of the border, for the Russians to see. When the news came to the Russian Military headquarters, the Russian Government was notified of the incident. This was the final straw, and relayed the new orders back to the Russian Commanding officer to attack.
Russia joins the war
In the early hours of May 20th, 2085, as the US Army were preparing for their suicidal attack against Gibraltar, the Russian Military opened fire on the Federation. Russian Non-Nuclear missiles, opened fire across the Federation Occupied Europe, destroying the Federation Forward Operating Bases. Then, the Russian Navy sailed out of the Black Sea, and began opening fire on the Federation Navy stationed in the Mediterranean. Finally, Russian Soldiers crossed the border into the the Baltic States, Ukraine, and Poland, launching a full scale invasion into Europe.
This new offensive caught the Federation occupation forces almost entirely off guard. The advance into the Baltic States, Ukraine, and Poland was so rapid, that the Federation barely had time to mobilize. To hold the Russians back, the Federation began to divert it's occupation forces to fight the Russians. However, given the circumstances, the Federation essentially had left Western Europe without protection. The US Military using the opportunity, attacked the Gibraltar Suspension Bridge, destroying it with precision. Thus, the main Federation Force in Africa and Europe were now split in two.
After the Gibraltar attack, the United States Military, using Iceland as a forward base, learned of a new Federation attack. The Peoples Republic of China (Under directive of the Federation of course) had launched an Invasion into Vladivostok, and up into Mongolia and Siberia, and had managed to destroy two Russian oil rigs in the Pacific, causing an environmental disaster. In addition, the Federation had sized the three Russian Military bases that were built inside Federation Territory. Despite this minor setback, the Russians appeared to be undeterred as they refused to back down. To avoid the Federation’s opportunity to crush the Russian Advance, the US command decided to speed up its advance, which put pressure on Generals of the US military.
To support the Russian Advance, the United States decided to launch an attack against Hamburg, Germany. The Russians entered from the east and the US entered from the North. Using joint efforts, the Russian and US troops managed to capture the city. While capturing the city, the US Military unexpectedly stumbled upon a meeting with some of the Federation and the People's Republic of China's top executives. US and Russian forces stormed the building and captured most of the executives. After this successful attack, the Russian and American military command agreed to continue joint missions to retake Paris, drive the Federation out of Europe, and then knock China out of the war.
In the next phase of the fight, the Americans landing in the occupied city of Glasgow, Scotland. The British had long since resisted the Federation Occupation, and now it was time to take back there homeland. With American Air Support, the resistance launched a massive uprising against the United Earth Regime. The upraised British fought with the Americans. Thanks to the destruction of the Gibraltar supply line, the Federation had little supplies to work with, and there supply line from China had just been cut off by the Russians. With this, the Americans and the British Resistance managed to march South and retake the British Isles. This tremendous effort terrified the Federation, as now there overseas empire was starting to crumble.
After the liberation campaign of the British Isles, the Federation fully expected that the Americans would cross the English Channel and attack France directly. So, the Federation fortified the coastal areas with an immense traps. Instead however, the Americans (Using the now recently liberated UK as a Forward Base), decided to land in the city of Lisbon. The initial invasion went well for the Americans, however, most of there air support were shot down before making landfall. Once making landfall, US forces using over four armored brigades charged at the entrenched Federation forces. As the US military continued their advance, it was discovered that the Federation had scuttled what appeared to be an EMP device into the city. If the Federation were to detonate the EMP Weapon, it would be a losing fight. Realizing that time was running out, the exiled European Federation was forced to give the go ahead, and new American B15 Bombers glassed the city off the face of the Earth. By the end of the Second Battle of Lisbon, the city practically did not exist as 90% of the city was now destroyed. However, in the Chaotic fighting that ensued, Lisbon was secured.
With the war now on two fronts, the UNSC and the Russian military forces liberated the Iberian Peninsula as well as Germany and Switzerland. The two sides finally began to moved on Paris. Once in Paris, UNSC forces managed to penetrate the Federation Research Lab that was being used to create the Bio Weapons and other agents discovered in the American Theatre. The initial orders were simply to torch the facility, however as the UNSC entered, it became clear that wasn't an option. As the UNSC forces entered the lab, it became evident of horrific Medical Experiments against American and European POW's. Obviously, the UNSC were completely horrified at what they found, and once again, the world cried in there favor, to defeat the Federation.
Following the capture of the factory, the United States and Russia moved in towards Central Paris. The Federation Forces stationed there were freaked out against the vengeful armies of both sides attacking them. Outside of Paris, the Federation had attempted to set up a defensive line in Versailles, as well as in other areas surrounding Paris, but it was no use. The Americans, Europeans, and Russians were moving in on them from both sides, and all hope was lost. In a last ditch effort, the Federation began destroying many of the cultural landmarks that Paris was known for. Notre Dame, the Palace of Versailles, and many other relics were set alight and destroyed by the Federation. However, the biggest of them all was when the Federation Fighter Jets fired missiles at the Eiffel Tower, officially knocking it down. With little will to fight any longer, Federation forces in Paris surrendered.
After Paris fell, the Federation forces in Scandinavia were basically the last bastion on the continent. However, by this point, Federation forces in Europe were running extremely low, as there African Warlord and African allies thanks to the destruction of Gibraltar were basically cut off from the European front, and Federation supply ships were being sunk every day. With no will to basically fight any longer, the Scandinavian Occupation Force of the Federation Armed Forces surrendered, and Europe officially fell once again to the joint American, European, and Russian efforts.
Middle Eastern Offensive
After the so-called "Liberation of Europe," the Russians and the Americans were at a standoff with one another. The Americans didn't exactly trust the Russians as since the last time they did, the Russians stole half of the European Continent. Even though Russia had no intentions to reform the Eastern Bloc, it was evident that the relationship between the two allies wasn't exactly a good one. Despite these efforts, the Russian Government agreed to return all lands back to the reinstated European Federation, and agreed to send political and economic support to the region to rebuild. In addition, to these, the three members decided to launch an offensive into the disputed and lawless region known as the "Equatorial front" North Africa, through the Middle East, India, and into Southeast Asia. This area was being contested between the Confederacy of Independent Nations, the UNSC, and some religious extremist groups.
The Russian Military began its part of the offensive by attacking Confederacy of Independent Nations forces against in both Syria, Northern Iraq, and Iran. With help from the United States, the Americans lended the Russian Military equipment as well as economic support, which was a great help for the Russian Military. The Americans using there ally of Saudi Arabia as a forward base launched an attack against Occupied Kuwait. These two initial landings went well, however it soon became evident that the majority of troops they were engaging were of Chinese and Iranian Origin, as well as some mercenaries that were hired by the Confederacy.
As the UNSC and Russia continued there advance into the Middle East, Israel, who had stayed neutral for the entire conflict, suddenly violated its non aggression pact with the Confederacy, and started a new offensive into occupied Jordan and Lebanon, beginning what would become known as 12th Arab-Israeli war. Given the state of mind with the Americans and the Russians, the UNSC kind of just let it go. The fighting wasn't to brutal, and soon or later the Russians and the Americans met together and Baghdad and Damascus.
Chinese and Iranian Involvement
By this point in the war, the People's Republic of China began to question their involvement in what was now the biggest war in Human History. China, in particular, was sending several resources to the Federation for what now appeared to be a defensive war. To the dismay of the Peoples Republic of China, it appeared they had been dragged into a losing fight. Although the United States was in no way shape to invade the Peoples Republic of China, the Russian Federation to there North wanted Vladivostok back, and they were gonna get it back.
By this point though, the religiously defined theocratic regime in Iran had held power for more than 100 years and had been contributing there men and equipment to there war effort, however this came at the expense of the people. By now, poverty rates in Iran had skyrocketed. Worst of all though, the Federation of the Americas was an outspoken Islamophobic Nations, and this had some ramifications with the people. Sometime in Spring 2086, the pro Federation Government of Iran was overthrown in a planned coup de tat. The knew, "Federal Republic of Iran" had been instated. Sharia law was disbanded, and a new "Liberal Theocracy" was formed in Iran. This new Government voted for surrender, essentially knocking the Islamic Republic of Iran out of the Federation-American War. This however, had some ramifications.
After the Federal Republic of Iran was instated, the extreme Islamists that supported the former regime felt like there country was not only being stolen to them by the Federation, but was now also being stolen to them by the European Federation. As a result, the extremists declared a Jihad against the Federal Republic of Iran, but also against the Federation of the Americas and the European Federation. As a result, Iran became a bloody mess as the Federation of the Americas vs the Federal Republic of Iran vs the European Federation vs the Extremists vs several tribes.
North African Campaign
In the fall months of 2086, the European Federation supported by the United States and Russia launched an invasion from Italy, across the Mediterranean Sea and began to attack the Federation ally of Libya. European troops landed in the cities of Tripoli, Surt, and Benghazi. The European chose to strike these targets as they were known to be Federation strongholds, which were correct. Over the course of October and December of 2086, the European Enforcer Corps attacked the coastline of Libya, and began moving south towards Waddan in the greatest war North Africa had seen since the Russo-American War 60 years earlier.
With Russian reinforcements showing up, the Europeans lead the UNSC continued there campaign, going out of Libya and into the Federation occupied countries of Tunisia and Egypt. With moves similar to World War I and World War II, all out desert warfare ensued as the combined arms of the UNSC fought the Federation and Libyan Militaries. The Federation Military was known to be the best known desert warfare fighters in the world, and this proved fact. However, the combined experiences of the European and Russian Militaries versus the poorly trained military of Libya made the battle very much a struggle for the Federation.
With the Europeans drawing the Federation Militaries, the United Nations Security Command members of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Niger, with American reinforcements attacked the Angolan (A Federation ally) Occupied Congo and Algeria. The resulting offensives saw the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Niger's borders before the Federation-American War restored, and soon and Libya and Algeria were knocked out of the war entirely. The UNSC allies then continued there campaign by deciding to attack the Federation allies of Sudan and South Sudan. To do that, the UNSC needed to clear the Federation out of Chad and the Central African Republic, which had been no mans land since the fall of the European Federation.
UNSC forces pushed into the lawless nations, which was being contested between rebel groups, Islamic Extremist Groups, Anti-UNSC, Anti-Federation, the UNSC, and the Confederacy. The advance into the lawless countries was often met with ambushes, suicide attacks, and all out fighting from multiple sides. The Federation wasn't faring much better in the region. Thanks to the Azawad Independence War in the 2050s, which wasn't recognized by the Federation, the Federation had found itself at war with the Arab Movement of Azawad, or MAA, as well as the pro-Government Mali Militia in the region, and other forces. Thanks to this delay, an effective attack against the Federation allies in Sudan and South Sudan were unsuccessful.
East Asian Campaign
The Southeast Asian Campaign against the United Earth Regime began early in 2087, when US forces aided by there Australian allies and other resistance groups made an offensive into Chinese Occupied Indonesia and Papua New Guinea. From the outside though, progress seemed to be a lot slower than anticipated, thanks to the fact that spies from the Federation had warned the Chinese of an impending attack. The invasion ended in Indonesia and Papua New Guinea being freed from Chinese hands. However, as the UNSC tried to push into Singapore and Malaysia, there advance was stopped dead in its tracks, and stalemate then ensued.
In February 2087, the Russians launched a new offensive against the PRC, attacking both the Chinese Occupied Vladivostok and the Siberian Coast, as well as starting a new offensive into the Chinese Provinces of Xinjiang, Manchuria, Mongolia, and Inner Mongolia. The Chinese had been preparing for such an offensive, but they didn't expect one on this scale. With support from the Americans using long range Tomohawk-9 Cruise Missiles, the Russian advance into China was efficient, and sooner or later, Russian forces started moving South towards Beijing. However, a huge snowstorm in the Xinping Pass disrupted the Russian advance, and soon everything came to a stalemate.
In March of 2087, the UNSC made a landing on Chinese Occupied Japan, and began to push inland. However, the Chinese had rigged the island with booby traps. Since Japans Geography was mountainous and had pockets of civilization in the valleys, the Federation and the Chinese had rigged the island with traps, making any advance slowly. By the 11th day of the invasion, the Chinese had halted the advance, and the Japanese Mainland became divided along the Northern Electrical Grid and the southern electrical grid, creating a particular dilemma for the UNSC.
In order to relieve the pressure off of Japan, the UNSC decided to make a final assault on Korea. The United Korean Republic had managed to stop the Chinese advance into the peninsula at the Han River, and had stalemated there ever since. In April of 2087, the UNSC attempted an invasion into Chinese Occupied Korea, which went very badly. The entire invasion force was killed. The battle lines never changed. The war in Southeast Asia was now a complete stalemate between the United Earth Regime and the United Nations Security Command.
Sometime in early 2087, the Russian Federation and the Peoples' Republic of China officially came to an agreement, signing the "Eurasian State's Peace Agreement" to formally end the hostilities between only there two nations. The two countries pledged cooperation between the each other and they would begin to economically support each other in the coming years. However, this did not disclose the fact that the United States and the Peoples Republic of China were still at war, and the warzone in Southeast Asia and the Pacific would continue for quite some time.
The Federation of the Americas was stunned by this move. Even though the Federation of the Americas was the most powerful country in the world and it had the world's largest economy, China was still a major buyer for the Federation and it would severely damage the Federation's Reputation to lose a country like China as an ally. However, little did everybody know the Federation was developing a weapon so destructive, that it could end the war entirely.
The Final Month (June-July 2087)
12 years no victory
The Year was now 2087. The war between the Federation and the U.S. had been fought to a stalemate with the Americans holding their ground in the Southwest. The front lines stabilized among the ruins of American cities, with the Liberty Wall and mined no man's land dividing American and Federation territory. Federation Occupied America, or what was left of it, stretched from Southern California, up to Central Arizona and New Mexico, through Central and Southern Texas, and over to New Orleans, Louisiana. The Federation tried their best to break through the Liberty Wall by doing regular attacks against the wall and doing regular bombing raids over cities on the other side. One city that was hit very hard in particular was Dallas, Texas, this city came under regular Federation bombing raids and the city regularly became a battleground between Federation and US Soldiers.
The war between the two states had been going on for 12 years, and there was still no clear winner. Despite the Federation loosing almost all of it's overseas territory in Europe, the Middle East, and North America, the Federation was still holding onto territory in the Southern United States parts of Southern and Central Africa. Despite the war between the Russian Federation and the Peoples Republic of China being over, the PRC was still holding onto parts of Southeast Asia while the Islamic Republic of Iran had been completely economically and militarily defeated. The Federation however still had the largest economy in the world, and was still outproducing the UNSC.
American defensive lines seemed to be impenetrable. However, the Federation conducted renewed offensives along the frontline. The Federation began capturing and interrogating civilians living among the urban ruins for intel about routes through or around American defenses; with this Strategy, the Federation managed to successfully strike and destroy the Dallas, Texas stronghold. With the United Nations Security Command being forced to go back to there defensive tactics, they were unable to pull off a successful victory. As months went by, more and more Federation invasion forces attempted to breach through their line of defense, but the Americans managed to hold their ground, despite losing Dallas.
As of 2087, the relations between the PRC (composing of China, Mongolia, Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia) and the Federation of the Americas were at an all time low. As the United Nations Security Command continued to push up Southeast Asia, the Federation (in the eyes of the Peoples Republic of China) seemed to be contributing less and less to the Chinese war effort, and seemed to just be focusing on the front in the United States. Even worse is that the Federation and the Peoples' Republic of China had different mindsets on dealing with their common enemies. The Federation's use of unconventional warfare as well as the Federation being what could now be described as a Theocratic Fascist State, well, gave the PRC some uneasy feelings.
As the issues between the PRC and the Federation of the Americas continued to deteriorate, the Chinese Communist Party realized that betraying the Federation would ultimately be a bad idea, and they had no choice in the matter but to continue to fight the war. As the Federation was pumping out technology such as some of the best Quintinium Computers on the planet, Nuclear Reactor designs, and some of the best GPS Satellites in the entire world, the Peoples Republic of China was really in a tough spot.
Remaining Federation occupied territories
By this point, the Federation was holding out to a few territories across the world. Most notably the Federation was holding out in Ethiopia, Somalia, Kenya, Eritrea, Tanzania, Yemen, Oman, the Southern United States, the Falkland Islands, South Georgia Island, Ascension Island, Central America, and most of the Caribbean. The Federation's attempt at building a global wide empire was falling apart, and the fact that they were defeated by the United States was a rather much embarrassment for the Feds. However little did the world know, the Federation was rebuilding something that had been destroyed several years earlier, and one that could potentially bring an end to the entire war.
Federation Dig site
Suspicious of the Federations Increased activity, the United Nations Security Command ordered a reconnaissance mission into the territory known as No Mans Land, a massive piece of destruction between New Orleans and Los Angeles, and as far north as Las Vegas. This area was considered extremely dangerous and unpredictable, to the point where every mission into the region almost ended in failure. However, due to the Federation's increasing activity, there was nothing that was going to stop this one.
The UNSC in conjunction with JSOC sent multiple teams into the No Mans Land, most being comprised of Americans, but some British and Russian Forces were deployed into No Mans Land. Due to that the this was American territory (Or it was), these teams were put under the command of Americans. Over the course of the ten days of the operation, it became very clear that something wasn't right, and needed serious scrutiny.
Across No Mans Land, JSOC operatives photographed and reported that the Federation had brought in huge amounts of construction equipment, and appeared to be excavating No Mans Land. JSOC located fourteen major dig sites between San Diego and Los Angeles alone, with many more across No Mans Land. To JSOC, these dig made no sense, as everything in this area had been wiped out in the ODIN Strikes. When the evidence was sent off to the North American Aerospace Defense Command, NORAD decided that they wanted the debriefs in person. However, things got in the way.
Federation Invasion of Los Angeles
The day after the intel came out of No Mans Land, the Federation launched yet another attack against the Liberty Wall. However, the Federation came in from outside the wall, and hit Los Angeles from the ocean. Specifically the Federation was targeting the facility known Fort Santa Monica, there former headquarters for operations across the United States. Taking back this facility would ultimately allow the Federation ground for future operations on the continent.
The Americans, realizing the importance of this area diverted a total of three armored battalions, and six air wings for the defense of Fort Santa Monica. The Federation on the other hand used its naval strength to reak havoc at the Americans trying to defend the area. The first part of the assault was the Federation Navy sailing up to the coast line, which sunk the UNSC fifth fleet that was protecting the region. After sinking the fleet, the Federation began there landings across the Los Angeles coast line, up as far North as Morro Bay. The Americans however had the ground advantage, and when the Federation came ashore, the Americans reeked havoc.
The Americans lead the UNSC in there efforts to defend the California Coast. When the Federation attacked, the UNSC ordered an evacuation of the city of Los Angeles. This allowed the United States Military to full use Los Angeles to the fullest of extents, however, the intense air battle and ground combat made evacuation extremely difficult. The Federation desperately sent wave after wave into the city, but ultimately most of it was either shot down or destroyed by UNSC Aircraft.
The Federation Air Force initially hit the skies hard, by the defending UNSC Air Force somehow managed to outmaneuver the Federation. After loosing multiple aircraft in the process, the Federation decided to deploy a new kind of warfare, one that would be the best use of cyber warfare throughout the war. The Federation destroyers off the coast activated a signal jammer from there positions off shore, which would corrupt anything that didn't have the frequency of the Federation. As a result, this lead to everything in the Greater Los Angeles Area, cell phones, tablets, and even military radar units to be shut down. This lead to many of the vital American Defenses such as guided missiles obsolete. After the jammer was activated, the US Air Force was virtually left obsolete as there systems went blank, leading to a very one sided battle between the Federation and UNSC Air Forces.
With the Federation controlling the skies, all that was left was the UNSC was the ground units. The UNSC used there ground forces, flooding them into the city, using the roadways to there advantage. Initially, the UNSC used tactics that had never been seen in warfare, which included rigging buildings for explosion, and hiding out in civilian homes. However, the Federation once again noticed a weak link inside the American Defenses. The Federation using there superior air force destroyed many of the supply routes into the city. With the supply line cut off, the Americans were at a bust, but they were not going to give up without a fight.
Using B72 Eclipse Stealth Bombers, the UNSC dropped over 500,000 pounds of bombs on the Santa Monica Coastline. Leveling the invading Federation forces within in a one mile radius between the beaches of Las Flores, and Redondo Beach. This strip was leveled, but luckily the civilian population was mostly evacuated. The strip delayed the Federation advance into Los Angeles, and it borrowed time for the evacuation of the city, but not by much. The Federation launched a very cruel invasion of the city, murdering close to 200,000, to maybe 400,000 Civilians in the process.
The Third Battle of Los Angeles was a mammoth defeat for the Americans. Another aircraft carrier was lost, and a host of another naval ships were lost in the fighting, along with the entire defense force of nearly 300,000 men and women was completely wiped out. This in turn had left in a shortcoming of only three American aircraft carriers remaining to fight the Federation. The Federation on the other hand had sent two aircraft carriers and two naval groups to fight, only loosing seven ships in the battle compared to the Americans who lost fifteen. The Americans counted a death toll of 300,000, while the Federation only lost 40,000. The invasion was just a disaster for the Americans, and now the Federation had the upper hand once again.
After the fall of Los Angeles, the UNSC decided to launch a counter attack of there own. Deployed behind the front lines, a group of US Special Forces, Russian Spetznaz, British S.A.S, and other resources were paradropped across Federation Territory, and Federation Occupied Territory. The intent was to gather intel, reek havoc, and disrupt Federation Activity behind the lines, allowing the UNSC rebuild and rearm.
June 15th, 2087.
On this day, during the Federation Day Celebrations, US Special Forces were para dropped over Caracas, Venezuela using a hijacked Federation HIND Helicopter. They infiltrated a Federation Building that they suspected was being used for R&D with the intent of capturing the Federation's top researcher, Victor Ramos. Victor Ramos, born on July 1st, 2039, he graduated at the top of his class from the University of El Morro, he had grown to become a top ranking official inside the Federation Research & Development.
The operation was initially successful, they managed to capture several hard drives and a laptop with valuable information. However, as the Green Beret's were about to leave, they discovered something. Adrian Rojas, who was expected to have been dead 10 years ago, was actually alive and was now the commander of the Federation Military while Rosa Cossette D'Elise took care of political business. However, Rojas was an elusive general, and it could be hours until they could get a solid location.
It turned out that Adrian Rojas's base of operations was a floating industrial complex in the Gulf of Mexico that was using the now abandoned former Deep Water Horizon drilling rig location. This industrial complex was now being used by the Federation as a major manufacturing hub for there naval forces. Since this facility was one of the prides of the Federation, it was calculated that destroying it would severely damage the Federations ability to rebuild its lost ships, however, capturing the facility in tact would allow the United States of America to set up an extra line of defense for there occupation of Cuba, and it would allow the US a better chance to rebuild there destroyed naval fleets.
The United States Military launched their attack on the facility using new Stealth Taifi Attack Helicopters and some captured and reverse-engineered Federation Landing Crafts to attack the complex. The US air force tried their best to keep the skies occupied, that way Rojas couldn't use it to escape, then an assault team lead by US Special Forces and Marines landed on the complex. Rojas was mostly guarded by PMC's and Militia loyal to the Federation, and they had a huge amount of equipment, however, they were completely caught off guard by the attack from the United States.
Rojas was asleep on the complex when the US started there attack on the facility, and he ordered any available resources at his disposal to be used in the defense. However, the US destroyed the radio tower that was relaying information, and thus he was unable to get his call out for reinforcements. Once it was realized, that he was surrounded, Rojas attempted to flea via ZODIAC Boat, however, he was blown out of the water by the Northstar Class Destroyer USS Jack Mitchell.
Adrian Rojas was captured, and so was the facility. This was a major win for the United States and the UNSC, as not only was a volley of weapons, ammuntion, and documentation was recovered, but they managed to successfully capture four Federation Scitmar Class destroyers that were under construction, and other vital equipment such as tanks, APCs, uniforms, you name it, as well as a location for major bases and industrial centers for the Federation. Of these facilities though was one that stood out. In the Port of Rio, there was a facility that didn't have a name, however it had the highest level of security from the Federation PMC Elite, and it was also locked down by the Federations Third Fleet, including two aircraft carriers. It was also heavily restricted airspace over the factory, and so much so that some of the Federation Air Force couldn't fly through it.
After capturing Adrian Rojas, a US Transport Plane began to fly him back to the United States for interrogation. However, while they were flying over the Yucatan Peninsula in occupied Mexico, the Federation Air Force Intercepted Rojas's transport aircraft and took it down over the Yucatan Peninsula. Adrian Rojas was now K.I.A, and the US forces there were declared K.I.A, however the US wasn't just going to let this go, and sent search and rescue teams into occupied Mexico to hunt down there missing soldiers.
As the US was attempting a search and rescue, they witnessed something that scared them to there inner core. While in the Yucitan, the video feed captured multiple Federation Missile launches. After the Missile Launches, NORAD was placed on full alert, and began tracking each bogey the Federation was launching into the Atmosphere. Across the United States, Nuclear Air Raid sirens were blaring as the projectiles raised into the Atmosphere. However, of the 14 missiles that were launched, none of them hit the United States or any other targets around the world. They simply went straight up, and burned in the mesosphere.
After the missile launch, the United Nations Security Command members met in a bit of confusion. The Federation appeared to be launching missiles into nowhere, and it was ultimately putting into question what exactly the Federation was up to. The Russian Generals in particular felt that there was something the Federation was hiding, and they needed to get into that factory that the Federation was desperately trying to hide.
Infiltrating the Federation
Operation Ice wall
The UNSC authorized an infiltration campaign to get into the factory. The first phase of the plan was "Operation Ice wall", an assault on a Federation Facility high in the Andes mountains of Argentina. This facility was one that the United States was completely unaware of, and it was one the Federation was trying to keep secret from the outside world. Dressed in Federation Uniforms, UNSC special forces from both the S.A.S, Special Operations Command, and US Green Berets infiltrated the facility from all directions. Using the data stealing devices, the data was beamed back to the United States.
The resulting data that was collected and sent back to NORAD, then the United Nations Security Command. The Federation WMD Program was deemed coming out of a factory, codenamed "The Shop" which was the same factory the UNSC found suspicious on the floating industrial complex. In addition to this data, the data contained frightening kill estimates for major US cities. These targets included...
- Washington D.C: 509,000 est.
- New York City: 7,681,020 est.
- Los Angeles: 4,773,380 est.
- Toledo: 511,968 est.
- Lexington: 740,439 est.
These numbers were frightening for the United States Government, and feeling a moment of comradery, the Russians warned that these estimates were the same style the Germans used during the Second World War. The United States and the UNSC panicked, and it could indicate that the Federation was planning something of a gas attack for what they did in Europe, or a nuclear strike. However, little did the UNSC realize that this plan was not what was happening.
Operation Melt the Snow
To buy the United States what little time it possibly had, the UNSC's Navy decided to launch an audacious attack one of the Federations most prized achievements, a string of Federation Oil Platforms in the Drake Passage. These Oil Platforms were controlled by the Federations Infamous "Sovereign Industries," and contributed to a good percentage of the Federations Industrial production. These oil rigs also provided a vital source of energy to the Federations "City on Ice" more commonly known as "Atlantis." The United States Government wanted to take the oil rigs, but the European Federation ultimately determined that the best option they had was not to take the rigs, but to sink them outright. The oil rigs were mostly guarded by armored mercenaries, however they were guarded by the Federations Artic Division. To respond to this, the United States sent two refitted Littoral-4 Destroyers to sink the Federation Oil Rigs.
Initially, the US Navy encountered huge resistance on the high seas working against the Federation, however, as the US Navy approached the rigs, all the found that the Federation had defending it was essentially no naval units. So the US navy essentially just sailed into the channel, and blew a bunch of stuff up. As a result of the "battle" 240 Million Gallons of oil was spilled into the South Atlantic Ocean. This environmental disaster was the worst of its history, and parts of the the south pole became an environmentally hazardous zone and the waters became contaminated. The worst part was the Federation Ice City of Atlantis, which was forced to be evacuated due to the oil spill.
This attack on the Federation proved to be the most controversial of the entire war. On one hand, the UNSC had essentially destroyed a good chunk of the Federation Oil Supply for its industry, but on the other hand this environmental disaster had effected huge amounts of aquatic life. It was only a matter of time before United Nations began to divide itself on the debate and legitimacy of the attacks. Despite the platforms being sunk, the war continued onwards, but little did the USA realize that they had forced the Federation to rethink there strategy.
After Operation Ice Wall and Operation Melt the Snow, the UNSC was ready to breach the long suspected factory. Two Spetznaz, One S.A.S, and two JSOC using a skiff were sent to breach the Federation Factory at the port of Rio, codenamed "The Shop." Using a tributary to a lake above the facility, the UNSC team managed to breach the facility by cutting off its communications. Once inside the facility, the UNSC found that this shop was more like an industrial production machine. tanks, trucks, guns, planes, missiles, and even Chemical Weapons were being made in this facility. However, as the UNSC reached a certain area of the complex, they found an area that appeared to be airlock sealed, almost like a vault.
As the UNSC team made entrance into the off limits, the UNSC found what appeared to be rocket components and space based weaponry. However, as the UNSC made entrance into the sealed off part of the facility, they discovered exactly what the Federation was hiding all this time. The Federation were developing there very own Kinetic Bombardment Satellite weaponry, what appeared to be a reverse-engineered version of the Orbital Defense Initiative, codenamed "ZUES" by the Federation. As stolen data confirmed, the Federation had put 34 Satellites into orbit over a period of several years, and now these satellites were almost ready to go. Upon further investigation, it was discovered that the Federation had in secret been building the largest space station in recorded history.
Realizing what was at stake, the UNSC Air Force using a combined Russian and European Air Force sent two fighter wings to level the complex, as well as targeting a nearby railyard that appeared to be harboring the output from the factory. However, the Federation had intercepted the data transmission, and the Federation had realized that there secret project had been found out. Using the nearby AA-75 Mantis Turrets, most of the fighters were knocked out of the sky, however the bombers were still able to do some damage to the factory, but not enough. With the inability to extract the Tier 1 teams in the factory, the UNSC troops relayed to command to request a MOAB Missile Strike on there positions.
As the camera feed was relayed from the factory to the United Nations Security Command headquarters, panic soon ensued throughout the world governments. With these 34 Satellites and over 20 different kinetic rods packed into each one, the Federation could strike any city or any target they wanted, and could wipe off any nation they wanted off the face of the Earth in a matter of hours. Further Satellite readings confirmed that the Federation's orbital weapon system had not only space based defenses, but also an EWD, or Early Warning Detection, array placed on the ground of the Atacama desert. This would ultimately give the station almost complete and total defense from a foreign attack.
Other details was that the Federation Weapons Satellites could either be fired in multiples, or in individual. In addition, the Federation Satellites appeared to be in two categories, and have multiple different projectiles compared to the American ODIN System. All in all, the Federations Orbital Weapons system was firmly superior to that of the Americans or the Europeans.
The US, European, Russian, Korean, Indian, and other governments of the United Nations Security Command met in a bit of an emergency panic. The meeting was organized so quick that they simply had to go through a video call, and do the meeting from wherever they were. After hastily reviewing there options, they came up with one option. The UNSC recalled there special forces operating in Federation Territory, and together for the first time since World War II, an alliance made up of over 20 nations would unify there armed forces to invade the Federation. The plan called to invade the Federation via Chile, attacking the cities of Arica, Tocopilla, and Antofagasta. A second team would then invade in the South, and take on the city of Santiago. Once the EWD was destroyed on the ground, Astronauts from UNSC nations who had a space program would assault the Federation Space Station, and then turn there weapons against the Federation and end the war.
As the plan to invade the Federation materialized, the Federation on the other hand, in retribution for the attack on Rio De Janario (A prized Federation possession) launched another offensive against the Liberty Wall, this time breaching it just outside Las Vegas. By this point, Las Vegas had been a focal point between the stalemating Federation and American forces. By this point, the city had been glassed off the face of the Earth, and was abandoned. The once gambling capital of the United States was lying in ruins. Once again, the Americans held the line, but rather than leave Las Vegas as a mark on the Federations Military record, the Federation launched a nuclear weapon into the city, destroying it completely.
Operation Scorched Earth
July 5th, 2087
At 14:46 PM on July 5th, 2087, the United States, Japan, the United Korean Republic, the European Federation, the Russian Federation, Australia, Saudi Arabia, and India under the flag of the United Nations Security Command began there full-scale Invasion into the Federation via Chile. As planned, the UNSC forces landed near the cities of Arica, Tocopilla, and Antofogatsta. Using the last remaining aircraft carriers in the UNSC fleet, UNSC forces successfully managed to drop inland in a bit of a chaotic operation.
Using resources from all corners of the world and a landing force larger than that of D-Day, the UNSC cut the Federations defensive positions across the Chilean Coastline. UNSC Aircraft began flying inland and across Northern Chile, included but not limited to fighter jets, Unmanned Arial Vehicles, and Transport Aircraft. In addition, long rage firebird cruise missiles destroyed airbases, as well as using the newly recommissioned USS Missouri, Iowa, Wisconsin, and New Jersey to launch 4000 Pound shells into Santiago to cripple the Federation. However, as the first hours of the invasion started, the Federation's Orbital Weapon Satellites became operational. The kinetic rods fired down on the invasion fleet, and began wiping out the remaining UNSC navy.
After the UNSC navy was virtually obliterated, the only hope that remained was for the ground forces to do some damage, and doing damage they did. Using armored tank battalion and infantry from all corners of the world, the UNSC sacked not only the main defensive base that was outside the complex, they also managed to delay the Federation Response to allow for American Special Forces to take the base. This base however wasn't just an Ordinary Facility, it was actually the Command Point for the entire Federation Nuclear Arsenal in the Atacama Desert. Once the UNSC secured the base, United Command Structure decided to turn the Federations Weapons against the Federation.
Using short range ballistic missiles, the UNSC targeted the Federation Space Complex responsible for guarding the Federation Orbital Weapons array. The Armored Battalions and stealth fighters broke through the security defenses at the Federation Space Center, and took out not only the AA turrets, but the ground missiles that could be used to shoot down enemy aircraft. However, in the chaotic fighting, the armored battalions became trapped by Federation armor. Realizing the importance of the mission, the armored battalion ordered to fire the missile at the Federation base. In a matter of roughly 15 minutes, the Federation's Space Center was completely and totally destroyed by there own weapons.
After the Federations early warning defense system was turned to glass, Soldiers from the United States, European Federation, and Russian "Space Force" departed from there respective space stations and ground centers from different areas across the world. The target was the Federations Space Station. This station was larger than any nation had ever launched up into orbit, and was intricate and complex. Thanks to the overwhelming force and thanks to the efforts of the ground forces, the UNSC was successfully able to attack the station from three separate directions.
The Federation's Space Command in charge of the station had been caught completely off-guard. With the early warning system on the ground destroyed, the UNSC's approach was almost completely undetectable. With the Space Center on the ground destroyed, and no way to contact ground control or other space stations in the area, the UNSC managed to not only take control of the station, but also control of the LOKI weapons system. Although 70% of the UNSC Soldiers were killed trying to take the station, they now had the upper hand. The resulting rest of the operation was a very one-sided battle.
The UNSC, using the Orbital Weapons, opened fire on the Federation Targets below. Across Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Bolivia, and Southern Brazil, the UNSC used the kinetic rods destroy anything that was of a threat. These included industrial centers, shipyards, military bases, ports, and even aircraft carrier groups. The Federation command structure soon completely collapsed, and ordered a full retreat. With the communications severed, and there own weapons being tuned against them, the Federation stood almost no chance.
With the victory in Space, victory on the ground, and victory in the air, the UNSC began to push inland. Realizing what was happening, the Federation decided to launch a nuclear strike against the United States. However, poor communication didn't realize that the UNSC had taken control of one of there main bases. The moment the nukes were launched, the UNSC simply the Federation Nuclear Missiles, Air Defenses, Laser Missile Defense system to destroy a full 90% of the entire Federation Nuclear Arsenal that was launched. The remaining 10 percent was intercepted by American High Altitude fighters.
By the time Operation Scorched Earth was over, the world was drastically different. 90% of the Federation Military, Economy, and infrastructure was destroyed. Countless Civilians were lost thanks to the Orbital Bombardment from the UNSC, leading to some very questionable response from governments across the world. With most of it's ground forces and other infrastructure destroyed, the Federation of the Americas was now facing the unthinkable, complete and total annihilation from the enemy that they deemed...
"The United States is an outdated government, military incompetent, and economically crippled nation. Its power and influence has been diminished, and it would be suicidal for them to continue to practice imperialistic ways."
- Federation High Command
In the panic of the Federation Government, most either tried to flee Caracas, or in most cases, committed suicide to avoid capture. Federation Military Commanders either went on the run, but some tried to organize a fighting force to attempt to defend what the Federation had left. On July 7th, 2087, Federation President Rosa Cossette D'Elise, realizing what was happening, was smuggled out of Federation Territory by her personal bodyguards. This left the Federation without a proper leadership, and without that leadership the entire military command structure began to collapse. On August 10th, 2087, US, European, Russian, and other UNSC forces entered the now destroyed Federation Capital of Caracas. Some Federation Soldiers tried to carry out some last ditch resistance, and some civilians and even children tried to do so as well, but this effort only delayed the inevitable. At 16:42 PM, UNSC forces arrived at the ruins of the Miraflores Palace (The Federations Government building). At 17:30 PM, the Pale Blue flag of the United Nations was raised above Caracas, alongside the Russian, European, American, Korean, Japanese, and other flags, signifying the new authority.
On August 12th, 2087, the Federation of the Americas and its puppet, the United Earth Regime, officially collapsed, and the United Nations Security Command. The fighting didn't officially end until the following day August 13th, 2087, bringing an end to the Federation-American War. The rest of the Federations High Command and Government secretly evacuated through and underground tunnel system out of Caracas, and escaped to Ecuador in Secret. From Ecuador, these officials fled to Easter Island, to officially set up shop as the "Federation Underground Resistance." The underground resistance tried to get through to the people, saying that it was there rightful duty to resist and keep the spirit of the Federation Alive. This was never carried out.
Casualties and Consequences
The Federation-American War cost the lives an estimated 1.2 Billion out of 9.5 billion people that lived on earth. The estimation of damanges was over 37 trillion in USD Dollars, making it the most destructive and deadliest conflict in human history. Historians debated on what this was to be called, most called it "The War of the Titans" or "The War of Human Destruction" but over the years it became simply known as the "Federation-American War." However in todays history books, it is referred to as the "Federation War."
In the aftermath of the Federation War, the United Nations Security Command officially became the new NATO alliance of the 2100s. The UNSC became the backbone military force of the new United Nations Security Council. Russia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, India, Mongolia, China, and many other nations joined the United Nations Security Command, and began the process of trying to repair the damages caused by the Federation-American War. These efforts would take decades, and it would horrendously cause humanities stagnation to continue both politically and economically.
The environmental effects were unimaginable. Thanks to the use of the Kinetic Rods, the Geography of the Southeastern United States and South America, Earths Geography was changed drastically. The resulting geography change caused shifts in the Weather of the Western Hemisphere. In addition, a good 70% 850 Million Citizens of the former Federation of the Americas had been killed in the Orbital Bombardment. While it was unintended, the UNSC drastically tried to cover up the massive civilian loss. With the massive geography change, a massive migration to the North began. In the interests of the world, the Central American Nations united to form the "Organization of Latin States". The OLS didn't completely replace the New Organization of American States, but it was really the only way how it could effectively deal with the new refugee crisis.
As time went on in the aftermath of the Federation-American War, the population growth spurt that humanity was experiencing at this time was now almost entirely none existent. Birth rates across Asia and Africa stagnated in the aftermath of the war, and even worse for humanity was that thanks to the oil spills, unconventional warfare, and other events, the economic conditions on planet earth were starting to become almost uninhabitable. With Earths resources being depleted, technological and economical stagnation, and environmental changes, in 2100 Humanity began off-world colonization and slowly but surely people began leaving Earth for pastures new.
In the aftermath of the war, the Federation President Rosa Cossette D'Elise, after hiding out for about a month, turned herself over to the UNSC allies, and revealed the locations of the Federation High Command that were not hiding out on Easter Island. Rosa Cossette D'Elise was put before an international court inside Seoul, Korea, and was placed on trial for starting the war and for war crimes. Rosa argued that she was completely separated from the affairs of the Federation's Military due to the command structure. Upon further investigation, it was found that the Federation High Command had been lying to Rosa in order to "appease" her war effort.
Given the circumstances, the UNSC couldn't really indict Rosa as she wasn't the person who started the war in the first place. Rosa was found guilty on only two of the accounts of the over 20 put against her. She only served six months in a detention center in the European Federation, however she was barred from leading any other country again. After her sentence was up, she fled to Australia, where she lived out the rest of her days. She was however banned from ever setting foot inside Latin-America again, and all of her personal belongings were confiscated. She was also banned from traveling to Easter Island, and to make sure she didn't show up, the UNSC Navy kept a few destroyers encircling Easter Island.
The rest of the Federation High Command that escaped trial fled to nations such as Bermuda and the Philippines, but most were caught and were executed for war crimes. However some of of the Federations High Command fled to Easter Island. As of today, the Federation's High Command still resides on Easter Island, and still maintains that the Federation of the Americas hasn't surrendered despite the total occupation of the land it once ruled. The Federation commanders have tried sending radio broadcasts for loyal Federation citizens to be able to resist the occupation, but none of these have actually been successful.
