    Endwar: World War Three


    The defensive forces of the Russian Federation count on the sheer impenetrability of their defensive lines to hold out until their armored forces can crush the enemy.

    Endwar: World War Three


    The aggressive forces of the European Federation rely on mobility and firepower to overcome the enemy. EF units are highly specialized and excel in a single combat role, requiring them to be combined to form a powerful combat force. Their highly mechanized nature allows them to quickly shift from a defensive layout to an offensive land-grabbing stance.

    The World of Endwar

    Date of Writing: 2020


    The oil profits, Sunni-Shi'tite violence and the will to be the leading superpower in the Middle East made Saudi Arabian relations with Iran tense. Both were large, oil-rich nations, both had the potential to become the most powerful nation in the region.

    To prepare for this, Saudi Arabia, already possessing a massive and powerful conventional army, continued to buy even more equipment, mostly ex-US weaponry from American weapons grants. Iran went and bought Russian and Chinese gear, ranging from fighters to missiles to combat boots. Then Saudi Arabia took it one step further, acquiring ex-South African nuclear weapons technology and Russian Transport-Erector-Launchers (TELs). The Iranian side success…

They range from impact-mixed diesel, fertilizer and antifreeze cocktails to dedicated HE and White Phosphorous, but all can achieve a devastating effect on the target location—anything within 100 meters is largely obliterated by either the initial blast, or the secondary fuel and hydraulics explosions, or the multitude of shrapnel crashing down.

    Heaven Gate II

    Ballistic missiles have a problem: they're big, fat targets for ABM systems. To remedy this, the PRC developed the Heaven Gate “天門” stealth IRBM. After the GNC, the new Chinese regime removed the nuclear warhead and put in some nasty surprises, allowing it to be a WMD for conventional warfare.


    • TEL/ Naval vessel

    Heaven Gate II relies on programmed targeting from its launcher to strike its target.


    Add a North Star “北斗星” Asian-GPS transponder, providing it with a much higher level of accuracy.


    Heaven Gate II is the second IRBM in the Heaven Gate series of missiles. The original missile had a stealth-oriented shape and vents to allow it to quickly dissipate engine heat, cutting down on both its radar and IR signature. Finally, the no…

    Even though the age of MAD via nuclear ICBMs is over, the time of the Ballistic Missile isn't quite finished, thanks to their incredible range advantage over other weapons systems. Which is why the IOR has not retired Russia's fleet of Iskander short-range ballistic missile batteries. It has even made more of them.

    And now we go and do it all over again. Another pointless battle. Another bereaved family. Another year of war. And the UIR does exactly the same. Someone has to break the cycle. Someone has to create weapons so powerful that if politicians want to wage war, they'll face the same death as the men and women sent to fight it. A deterrent. A damn big deterrent. I can build a deterrent that'll bring governments to their sense. An orbital weapons system. That's my duty now.

    The idea of giving a wheeled armored car an anti-tank gun is not new. The Germans built a vehicle, the eight-wheeled Sdkfz. 234 Puma back in the 1940s, giving what would have been a infantry mutilation vehicle a 5cm Pak 38, allowing it to harass tanks.

    In the early 21st century came the short-lived M1128 Stryker MGS, serving well in American operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. The vehicle's high firepower-to-weight ratio made it excellent in urban environments.

    With just about the highest urban concentration in the world, the IPC didn't hesitate to procure a modern 21st-century version of the original concept.

    The Type 502 is the most powerful machine gun fielded by the Superpowers. Firing high-powered 14.5mm x 114mm bullets, the weapon is a supersized CIS 50MG, a gas-operated, air-cooled, belt-fed heavy machine gun, which does include the CIS 50MG's dual feed system. This all…

    Iron Guard Sentry

    Originating to the Samsung SGR-A1, the Iron Guard Sentry is a robotic weapon system (optionally manned) which replace human sentries on guard duty.

    One complete system is allocated to each Mechanics squad.


    • Sentry Gun—Remote Operator

    The Iron Guard Sentry uses a binocular pair of nightvision-capable TV cameras to detect its targets. An independent NV-capable CCD camera serves to put the Iron Guard's gun on target. In addition, an IFF interrogator checks with the human-sized target (up to 1km away) to see if it's a friendly. If the IFF return signal is incorrect, expect nasty consequences. A North Star “北斗星” friendly-tracker is standard.

    BMP-120

    While the Russian heavy vehicle doctrine has always been (for the past eighty years) to keep weight and size minimal, the Imperium let the increase in weight and size slip, as long as protection and firepower increased proportionally.

    Which has led to the -120 series, all sharing the same chassis. And all weighing in past 70 tons.

    Believe it or not, the 76-ton BMP-120 is the most subtle vehicle of its family.

    M205 Razorback

    As a replacement for all previous IFVs and SPHs, the NAU pooled together every major weaponry manufacturer and they came out with a “lightweight universal chassis,” a lightweight, well-protected vehicle capable of being built with slightly different parts to fulfill different roles.

    Most people refer to it as a revival of the FCS project undertaken by the USA in the late 20th century/ early 21st century. An of course, the platform's chassis was of Israeli design—a copy of their Rakiya “Horizon” armored vehicle.

    The first vehicle out was the Razorback, a vehicle that combined the armor of the Puma, the ruggedness of the Warrior, and the ammunition capacity of the Bradley.

    M206 Charioteer

    In the late 2020s, the Israelis unveiled their new Rakiya (Horizon in Hebrew) combat vehicle. It packed a short-barreled 120mm autoloaded cannon, two spots for rooftop-mounted remote weapon systems, and a next-generation laser-based hardkill system, plus a dedicated troop bay to carry a single fireteam into the heat of battle.

    The NAU decided that they wanted one too. Which resulted in the borrowing of the Rakiya's chassis, and a turret redesign by BAE, in order to fulfill another role; while the Rakiya was forcused on urban low-intensity combat, the NAU needed a tank designed to fight other tanks.

    The world is one of blood and violence, a large world of extremes that colide endlessly. Nations are born and they die all the time, there is no way of knowing who will be the next to fall. Massive militaries with perfect defenses and no enemies, fall apart into chaos without explaination. This is not unsual, this is something that happens so often that there is no point in keeping track of who exists and where they are. There is no real maps that remain the same, borders change hands all the time and sometimes they spend whole decades outside any borders at all. That is life, life is conflict; life is hell.

    If you have two hundred guns per kilometer of the front, do not ask about the enemy and do not report about him.

    Any good defensive line needs artillery. And to achieve “two hundred guns per kilometer,” they couldn't look to big, powerful howitzers—they would be too expensive.
