Forgotten War Stuff: ECA



Tornado GR4




The Tornado GR4 is the latest version of the highly successful project Tornado; in distant 60s of last century the British sought to develop in partnership with their European colleagues a compact, powerful and efficient new generation fighter/bomber for cruising missions, this effort has grown wings with the first tornado in 1981 through a partnership between companies of the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands.

Over the years the Tornado held an important role in defending the sovereignty of European nations against a hypothetical Soviet threat from the east; were also used - this time in real action - by the RAF in the Gulf War, and later by several other NATO nations in the War of Yugoslavia and Bosnia proving to be a very efficient aircraft for penetrations and bombing missions at low altitude; during those "glory days" the Tornados used various unguided and laser-guided bombs, anti-ship and anti-radiation missiles, as well as specialised weapons such as anti-personnel mines and anti-runway munitions. With the advent of the 21st century and a new re-organizations of the power logic between East and West the use of Tornado became something impractical before a modern military doctrine and the peace treaties between the emerging Cold War blocs.

Like a bird of prey the RAF commanders wisely kept a strategic reserve for at least a hundred of GR4s for a possible future clash against Russia; in 2045 this decision proved to be crucial when the Russians began their assault with full force on Europe. More than a thousand of the Russian bombers unloaded nearly 10 million tons of bombs on strategic targets in Europe in the first months of the WWIII, resulting in the destruction of most of the European and ECA air force; then, like in World War II, the RAF was deployed en masse to combat the enemy's forces in Finland, Estonia, Poland, Austria, France, Germany and other countries, where the Tornados GR4 were lethal against all kinds of targets.

In 2048 the UK Tornado fleet had been reduced to less than half, but it was still powerful enough to impose fear and respect the enemy, that at the date of September 8 - under the command of General Aleksandr - when trying to step on English soil, was devastated by a storm of Tornados together with Harries and Typhoons in the Ramsgate Battle. In the days following the battle the Tornados were decisive to the patrolled and undermined the Dover Strait in order to prevent another invasion of England. In October a squadron of 10 RAF Tornados were transferred to the base of Los Llanos in Spain in order to support the resistance of the Alps and Apennines where together with the USAF conducted several successful operations.

The Tornado GR4 was a successful aircraft since its first version and represented for Europe - and especially for the UK - an ace up his sleeve against the Russian Federation; was not as fast or modern as the Typhoon or as versatile as the modernized Harrier, but was a viable piece of direct combat against a numerous, brutal and cunning enemy, then finally earned its place in the sun, making one day what was designed to do: destroy "The Great Ivan!".


Puma IFV




The Puma IFV was designed by the Germans to be the replacement of the Marver IFV for the Bundeswehr of the 21st century; much more agile, powerful, modern and resilient than its predecessor the new IFV can easily support the new challenges of unconventional warfare - such as wars against terrorists and insurgents - since it has an effective armor against explosions caused by anti-armored weapons as IEDs and RPGs - main weapons used in this type of asymmetric warfare.

On May 21, 2037, the Puma IFV was first used in an international conflict - Operation Nemesis - which had its theater in North Africa controlled by extremists linked to GLA; the IFVs was fundamental importance in the mountainous regions of the Moroccan Atlas and also in the bloody Battle of In Salah where various black markets in the trading crossroads that financed the terrorist organization were destroyed. The 30mm projectiles with "air burst" capacity left into pieces the rebels with high accuracy and efficiency as well as destroy the fragile armor of technicals and quad cannons, becoming a natural predator of these types of vehicles. Another memorable event in In Salah involving the Puma IFV was when a group of toxic tractors surrounded the vehicle: the CBRN system proved to be highly efficient to filter the air and completely seal the structure of the vehicle preventing that the deadly bacillus of Anthrax entered and infected the crew - the first time that the system saved the lives of all crew members of a direct hit.

In 2039 when a Grad artillery group was mobilized to carry out a surprise attack from the "The Zone" against the ECA positions and the Maghreb Union once again the Pumas IFVs saved the day annihilating the offensive with anti-vehicle laser-guided missiles. In the following year the gigantic military drills in the Sahara Desert - "Sahara 2040" - marked the beginning of a new military doctrine of the ECA Mechanized Assault, where the Pumas supported the Leopards and Jadg Mammuths in a new style of "modern blitzkrieg" never seen before.

When war broke out in Europe in 2045 the Puma IFVs were at the forefront once again supporting the felins who bravely fought against the invaders, but powerful air and artillery supports meant that the defense was inefficient; in the war for Austria and Germany the last Pumas tried vainly to contain the advance of the Federation's armored legions, and finally with the fall of Germany in 2046 the Pumas disappeared completely at an early stage of the WWIII.

The Puma IFV was a modern transport assault vehicle capable of operating in different types of terrains and against different types of opponents, and was excellent in the anti-terror Operation Nemesis, causing that the GLA were expelled from North Africa. In the WWIII involving Russia was unable to stop the advance of the enemy that destroyed the entire army of the Bundeswehr; it is still mentioned as an excellent state-of-the-art machine as well as the Pandur.


PL-01 2M




The PL-01 2M is a tank considered relatively new, and its design and development back to the first decade of the century 21, and the version 2M of 2032. Interested in keeping a small army, but with a powerful deterrent capacity the Poles have invested heavily in the latest technology with other European partners in order to create an "invisible" tank against the main enemy detection systems, thus in 2020 the first PL-01 were delivered.

Armed with a 120mm cannon and laser-guided missiles the great success of the innovative PL-01 is a ceramic shell capable of absorbing radio waves making that the tank can not be detected by any type of conventional enemy sensors; based on this dynamic Eastern European nations such as Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and later also the Finland ordered its PL-01s always working with the hypothesis of a Russian threat - especially after the rise to power of the warmongering President Suvorov. In 2038 with the stability artificially generated by the Russian Federation in Eastern Ukraine a group of 20 PL-01 M2 of the Poles went into action in the district of Kiev, Ukraine, in order to ensure the escape of former President Igor Ivanov to Poland; the operation was a great success - and frustration in Russia - because the tanks penetrated on Ukrainian territory and faced the East Kodiaks without even being detected by enemy units (officially these events never occurred and the facts were denied by both sides of the conflict).

In 2045 when the Federation's tanks started rolling on the European territory the PL-01 met again with the Kodiaks on the battlefield, this time in much more fierce battles than that took place in Ukraine; superior ballistic capability of Russia and its close combat aviation proved to be lethal against the tank, but on the ground its advantage over the Russians was something considerable, was even common for a PL-01 M2 were able to approach a enemy vehicle in less than a 500 meters without being noticed by any radar; due to this reason many of the Russian armored vehicles commanders have come to call the PL-01 of the "ghost" because the tank could not be detected before the last minute.

In the Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia the exaggerated offensive of Russia annihilated the PL-01 implacably - not without cause headaches for the RA - but in Finland held the position against the Russians slightly disorganized. When the elite shock armored divisions of the Russian Federation - Golems and Sentinels - stepped in to fight against the Finns' PL-01 M2s the situation quickly changed: a PL-01 shoots and hits a Russian heavy tank, but was not effective against heavy armor, then immediately the target was identified and neutralized with a single well-aimed shot.

The PL-01 2M was one of the European tanks with the highest level of technological complexity and an opponent in the match of the Russia MBTs - like the famous Kodiak - but in the end was a small force of defenders; the Leopards undoubtedly were much more numerous and for this reason were able to cause greater losses to the opponent; however only the PL-01 M2 will always be remenbered as the WWIII "ghost".


ZTK-305J "Klaus-Kong" biggrin.gif




The ZTK-305J "Klaus-Kong" was a Sino-Germanic super-heavy tank prototype developed in the 30s of the 21st century in Germany, thanks to cooperation established by EURA; the impressive tank should be the most powerful in the world according to its creators because it would accommodate the very best in terms of engineering and technology of Europe and Asia, but unequivocally turned out to be one of the worst in the tanks world...

The adventure began in 2029 when the EU was restructured after being devastated by the GLA uprising; China bet on a savior project for the European economy that would bring in return a market exclusivity, for it was involved in an political/economic/military deeply alliance with their new European partners; to demonstrate the success of this covenant for the world and build a "military supremacy" some of the best Chinese engineers visited Germany to present to your friends the design of the new super-heavy tank ZTK-305J, which should be the natural replacement for the XTZ-200 Overlord that had become popular for the Europeans after the parade on the Champs-Élysées, Paris, in 2029 - after the GLA's defeat in Central Europe invasion.

A great media apparatus has been created to be made to cover of the production of ZTK; the first information were aware of a group of more than five thousand workers of multiple nationalities - mainly Chinese and German - working tirelessly to finish the prototype as soon as possible. Technical informations revealed that the monster would be equipped with two reliable Rheinmetall smoothbore 280mm cannons - but could eventually receive a single cannon of up to 305mm - and each projectile would be of the size of a "tall and fat man"; the German mechanical engineers working on a complex system for the large treads and wheels while the Chinese introduced a nuclear mini-reactor state-of-art - more potent than that used by the ZTZ200G Emperor Tank - in the heart of the titanium giant. To further increase the expectation was announced that the tank would receive an advanced AI system that would function as "the soul of the tank", something 100% "made in China" that could speak in more than 20 languages and perform complex tasks with simple voice commands.

It was not long to the technological marvel receive the affectionate nickname - which would later be something humorous - of "Klaus-Kong", in a reference to unusual and opportune partnership of the EURA. But the bold project does not convince some of the media who insisted on criticizing some of the design details already predicting a complete failure; said the armor compound of titanium was economically unfeasible to produce the tank - even for a mega-economy like China - and the recoil of a 280mm cannon was untenable even for the German engineering; that Klaus-Kong mini-nuclear reactor was highly dangerous - considering that had already been reported problems with the reactors of some Overlords before. Regardless of this the project continued in accelerated rhythm, without any apparent serious problem.

On May 1, 2031, finally the Klaus-Kong would be presented to the public in a great civic-military parade organized on Unter den Linden, Berlin; in command of the machine was the experienced crew of the Bundeswehr captain Georg Noe. As soon as the parade began Noe felt quite comfortable with the soft leather seat and the digital commands of the tank, but needed to take a little care as the giant barely passed through the avenue; after a few minutes talking with the AI of the machine in German language Georg asked that the Klaus-Kong reduced its speed, at first the command was met, however subtly the machine began to question Georg in Chinese language and Hakka dialect - dialect spoken in Southeast Asia - which Georg nothing can understand; scared Georg and his team tried to stop the machine and started a real discussion with the IA that not understand more your commands in German or English, then the disaster has occurred: 26 people - including children and the elderly - were crushed by ZTK, several others were injured and buildings damaged; only was possible to stop Klaus-Kong less than 200 meters from the Brandenburg Gate avoiding an even greater tragedy to the Germans.

The ZTK-305J Klaus-Kong was a real tragedy on a large scale, both for the scientific/technological as a political/economic point of view. The Klaus-Kong was dismantled and its tower was transported to Hong Kong where even today is exposed in a museum as a symbol of what was the EURA. A decade after the world experienced a truly super heavy tank that was build from scratch and is a state-of-the art of the German and European engineering, his name is Manticore.

If you ever decide to invade Russia, for the love of God, bring some warm clothes. We don't want you to blame the "evil Russian winter" when you get crushed, like everyone else who tried.



Great, Crusher! I guess you'll do all other factions, but my question is will you continue even after that? Like adding even more stuff to Russia and here. This is seriously good. Like cannon-worthy good. smile.gif

Thank you, maybe there is some additional content for what was already posted since I have a worthy inspiration. I will continue this to present the other factions, then wait for another three segments. smile.gif

Looking good man,
I like this one as well as not all the Military units were discharged because of poor performance, rather ones like the Puma simply lacked the numbers to serve continuously in the ECA following the fall of Germany.
Can't wait for the China, USA and possibly GLA

The goal is this: to demonstrate that some units were eventually important for the outcomes of WWIII, but are not mentioned in the official lore, then this is an attempt to expand this.

Thank you, I would be happy if the contents were added to the wiki as something canon (it seems that the readers really liked of this lore). smile.gif

I like this, it shows how the units we can build and see in-game are of course not all the unit types that the factions fielded during WWIII. The inclusion of a Polish stealth tank was a particularly nice touch, since AFAIK no unit in the ECA arsenal is Polish, even though Poland is an ECA member.

The Viking is meant to be polish, but it still hasnt got its voice added yet.

Yeah, I've seen several times that it's supposed to have a Polish male voice, but I still hear the French gal's voice for both Venoms.
