contact with its neighbors, tensions in the Middle East reach an unprecedented peak. In addition, the GLA successfully

After years of political turmoil and economic decay, Nikolai Suvorov of the Novorossiya Party becomes the new President of the Russian Federation. He openly declares his goals to be the elimination of all infighting and corruption and 'to create a new Eurasian hegemony with Mother Russia at its helm'. Western analysts dismiss the popular leader as an ineffectual, chest-thumping mouthpiece of post-Soviet oligarchy placed in charge of what is essentially a borderline failed state.
During the inspection of a military research facility, President Suvorov is impressed by the revolutionary MTP recovery vehicle that can repair any vehicle on the battlefield using nanobots simmilar to the USA drones.

2029
The EU uses the Chinese funds to buy large amounts of fossil fuels and raw materials from Russia which invests the
newfound wealth to overhaul its own infrastructure, educational system and military, triggering a period of great economic
growth in Russia and establishing Suvorov as a smart statesman with the appeal of a film star.

2030
The first components of the Chinese East Star Space Station are brought into orbit aboard a Long March 3B rocket.

that China managed to delay for the duration of the war after the GLA attacked Beijing, Hong Kong and the Three Gorges
Dam.

projects and briefly locks down his base at Redwood Shores, California, before being arrested by his second in command.

unscathed thanks to the brokering of General Eugene Griffon.
Deathstrike dies unceremoniously at the hands of an unknown assassin, throwing the GLA into a power struggle and
diminishing its global presence. Anwar Sulaymaan embarks on a quest to re-unite the organisation under his rule. Due to
being disunited and busy among itself, the GLA soon disappears from the perception of both the general public and
intelligence agencies.
Prince Kassad once again betrays the GLA and is subsequently shot dead by Sulaymaan himself. Cobra Cell is disbanded
and its surviving members and equipment are absorbed by the rest of the GLA.

the construction.
The Russian action movie Red Squadron becomes a summer blockbuster in Russia and a few other countries after

adventurism.

2035
The US Air Force demonstrates its new financial and doctrinal supremacy by introducing the AC-17 Spectre III, the most
heavily armed and lethal American gunship ever built, which is armed with a 155mm howitzer, a dual GAU-12 Equalizer

dozen new reactors are under construction. In an effort to obtain total self-sustainability, the European Space Agency and
CERN commence development of the Solaris energy project.

produces enough energy to supply both Spain and Portugal.
A few months later, another pair of satellites is activated: Cassini provides energy for France, Belgium and the Netherlands
while Kepler is used to power the joint reactor of Germany and Denmark.
With Europe becoming increasingly independent from foreign energy thanks to its own renewable sources, many longstanding
fuel treaties with Russia are cancelled, putting a strain on the Federation's economy and the diplomatic relations
between the two powers. The demand for Russian resources decreases over the coming years, signalling the impending end
of the country's economic boom. Furthermore, military observers point out that Solaris could potentially be used as an
orbital strike weapon capable of threatening Russia's cities and nuclear stockpiles.
Germany and France openely suggested that Ukraine should join ECA.
The former Secretary General Cheung Liu is appointed as the new Party Chairman of the People's Republic of China.

2045
Meantime USA has launched full scale attack on GLA and koreans in pacific,
it turns out that occupation of pacific islands was only a decoy so GLA and Koreans can

cancelled due to being too expensive and not reillable as being too hevy and slow.
US Army is now turning to reuse old units and uprade them.
Roumor has it that US armed forces engineers were able to upgrade old Abrams tank
to all goodies that paladin had but they still made it lighter and more agile.
USA generals agreed that pinpoint precision is too expensive and it didnt work well
in the past so they will now go with power with small numbers, or speed with more numbers.
Airforce will still be mayor factor for both defence and offence.
People in US are not too happy to see secret organisation like S.H.I.E.L.D
that only yesturday were only conspiracy theories and now they are takeing over
large part of US armed forces.
After USA Almost destroyed the GLANK Coallition GLA leaders reillazed that without moddern
approach they wont survive let alone win the war.
So GLA started to work more on thier defences and intrenching than just guerilla rush the
enemy.
There is also a roumor that NSA satellite spoted Dr. Trax in one of GLA bases but its denied that
that person only looks like Trax and its not man himself.

President put offer on the table if Ukraine will not join ECA Russia will not further attack Ukraine and they will
forgive Ukranian dept for gas and lend further 50 bilion $ to Ukraine at low interest rate.
Ukraine had referendum on this matter and people have decided that its best not to go in NATO.
There was a lot of scepticism about Russian intentions but its hard to belive that Russia will attack Ukraine after all
that investment put in that country.
