Places within the Belkan Federation:

Anfang - A stretch of coastline several dozen miles west of the North Belkan capital of Dinsmark, this used to be a vacationing hotspot before the Belkan war. The vibrant ecosystem and beautiful coastline attracted both young and old, but all that changed during the Belkan war. It is the site of the last battle of the war, which occurred right as the peace treaty was being signed.

Avalon Dam/Mund Valley - A dam in the Belkan heartland built amid controversy because of its ambiguous purpose; after it was completed, however, the Belkans came to embrace the dam, calling it the pride of Belka as an engineering feat. Following the Belkan war, Belkan engineers who defected to the radical terrorist group "A World with No Bounderies" completed the V2 MIRV missile and planned to launch it from Avalon.

Dinsmark - The capital of the Belka Federation and the state of North Belka, home to the University of Dinsmark.

Glatisant - An ancient Belkan fortress built on the top of Mt. Ivrea. The Belkan army converted it into a modern base, the centerpiece of the Hydrian line, a defence line that stretched from the Sapin border to the Osean border, as well as a suspected nuclear production facility.

Hoffnung - A major industrial center for Belka known as the "Sleepless Town" for its non-stop industrial productions. The city was razed to the ground by the retreating Belkan forces as part of their newly instated scorched earth policy, attempting to keep Belkan technology out of the Allies' hands.

Lumen - A border city in South Belka, Lumen was the site of the peace resolution talks after the Belkan War.

Mt. Schirm - A mine in North Belka from the Belkan Federation's more prosperous era. Probably abandoned during the 80's when the vein went dry, possibly affecting the already chaotic Belkan economy.

Schayne Plains - Belka's second line of defense, the Schayne Plains are an open expanse of fields, bisected by a branching river.

Stier Castle - An ancient castle in the Stier region, overlooks one of the seven nuclear blast craters left from the Belkan War.

Sudentor - The capital of South Belka, later ceded to Osea and becoming part of North Osea. It is one of the sites of the final battles of the Belkan War.

Tauberg - a forested area in the heart of Belka. It originally was a Belkan National Preserve, and had over 60 species of mammals and over 200 species of birds. During Belka's military expansion period, however, the land was bought by the Belkan Army as the site that would become the territory of their secret military R&D. Rather than destroying the wildlife's habitat, though, the secretive nature of the Excalibur program actually prevented outside influences from affecting the wildlife. The wildlife had adapted to living alongside the technology of Belka.

(1600s - 1915)
During the Dark Ages, Belka is divided into many small states. The largest of these are North Belka and South Belka. The majority of North Belka is ruled by the Belkan Knights. These legendary warriors operate out of Steir Castle and defend the country from invaders. By the end of the Dark Ages, Belka is still divided into many small states. However, by the 1700s, all of modern-day Belka unifies into Principality of North Belka, and its capital is moved from Steir Castle to the nearby city of Sudentor. This boosts Sudentor from a small mountain trading village to a major economic center, rivaling cities as large as Oured. Over the next hundred years, Belka would expand its empire, seizing the nation of South Belka. Finally, in the early 1800s, the two Belkas joined together to unite all Belkan states into the Belkan Empire, from the Confederacy of Crescence (modern-day Crescence Island) to the Republic of Ustio. The capital is moved for the final time to Dinsmark in the north.

In the late 1800s, Belka tries to expand its borders by moving into the Osean land around the Great Lakes. The border dispute lasts many years until Osean and Belkan delegates met in the Osean city of Wesson. In the Wesson Compromise, Belka gained control of the Great Lakes in exchange for most of the islands north of Belka (except Crescence Island). The border remained at the Great Lakes for roughly a hundred years.

In 1907, Belka becomes the first nation to incorporate airplanes into their military. Belka, hungry for more land, invaded Osean land in 1910, beginning the Osean War. Osea emerged victorious and the two nations signed the Treaty of Oured in 1915, which gave the Great Lakes back to Osea. After Belka signed the treaty, its people were fed up with the old imperialist policies. Belka did away with its old monarchy, they adopted a democratic government, turning the Principality of Belka into the Belkan Federation. The result was making Belka a stable, modernized country. Also, the aces of the Belkan Army Air Corps (precursor to the Belkan Air Force) had performed so well during the war, that they usurped the title of "Belkan Knights," which until that point had belonged exclusively to the Belkan Army.

Expansionism (1940s - 1987)
In the late 1940s, the Belkan Government then saw it fit that the country expand its borders to include the lands around it. This expansionism was sparked by the purchase of the majority of the Great Lakes region from Osea. However, the eastern countries which owned these lands were not supporting this idea and would not allow the Belkan Federation to simply take these lands from them, so the Belkan government decided that it would take these lands by force. By the 1960s, Belka believed it had built up its military sufficent enough and began to move it’s forces into the neighboring countries of Sapin, Ratio, Gebet, and Recta.

The Belkan Federation split its attacks on the neighboring countries into two "Battle Lines:" the Eastern (modern-day Gebet, Ratio, and Recta) and Southern (Sapin) Battle Lines. The fiercest actions took place on the Eastern Line.

As the annexation battles took place, the Belkan Air Force had quickly established itself as a formidable force, just by itself. In some cases, a few pilots had become Aces and had made their name known in their own country and across the continent. On the Southern Battle Line, the Wing Leader of the 156th TFS Silber, Dietrich “Boss” Kellerman and his unit had been recognized as a vital part of that Line and it’s ability to hold.

Soon, the last opposing nation, Recta, was under attack by Belkan Forces. Rectan Air Force, while smaller but more experienced, was effectively defending itself from the initial attacks and maintained its air superiority. The 156th TFS Silber was deployed there from the Southern Battle Line and soon the tide of war changes. Most notably at the Battle of Mt. Mainz, in which they claimed air superiority and allowed Belkan Ground Forces to take the city of Calle, wiping out the last stronghold of the Rectan Liberation Front.

The last action of the Belkan Annexations ended with the 156th TFS Silber engaging unknown Fighters over Crescence Island. After they are shot down, all actions against the Belkans begin to cease. This took place in 1985.

Just two years later, the Belkan Democratic Party came under heavy opposition, due to the fact that the Belkan economy was declining rapidly and soon the government was forced into a process which would re-evaluate their effectiveness to run the country. The Belkan Federal Law Review was held in 1987. In the end, a new Federal Government was established and new laws were set in place.

The Federal Era (1987- present)
Two territories had broken away from the Belkan Federation, not agreeing with the new system. In 1987, the a state in northeastern Belka was the first territory to split from Belka and become a seperate nation. The new nation declared itself the Fato Federation. Also, in 1988, the Republic of Ustio, reformed after roughly a hundred years under Belkan rule, also breaks away.

The Belkan Government could do little to stop them from breaking away, since their economy continued to fall. Eventually, in 1991, they had sold their remaining lands back to the Eastern Nations,then all Belkan Military forces returned to Belka. These lands were distrubuted among Sapin, Ustio and the FATO Nations and resulted in the expansion of the Sapin and Ustio and the formation of Gebet and Recta.

However, nothing seemed to help the Belkan Federation come out of their economic bind and the country entered a state of unrest. During this time the Public cries out for order to be restored. Amidst the chaos an extreme-Right Wing Party takes power in Belka. They had learned of Osea’s lies and their plan to take the rich lands around the Great Lakes, and also had intentions of reclaiming the two territories which had broken off.

In 1987, Belka had receded its Northern and Southern lands of the Great Lakes to Osea, in hopes of revitalizing its economy, since a Joint Research Group Announced that there was a large amount of resources there. Osea had promised to repay them a high percentage of the materials there. However, there weren't as many resources as they had said were there.

They had attempted to retake their land from Osea after finding out that reports of theirs, reading that they were not rich in minerals, were false and made up by Osean Officials.

The Belkan Military began to re-amass itself under the orders of this new regime and conflict on the continent became imminent.

The Belkan War
The Belkan Military crossed the borders of the Independent countries and Open War was declared. The Belkan Military advanced on all fronts and never stopped, despite the military opposition in front of them. The southern states lost Air Superiority after the opening week of the war. The Republic of Ustio had lost 90% of its Air Force and was forced to retreat, during the retreat they lost a third of their land in-order to reduce the number of fronts they had to fight on. The Belkan forces continued a steady advance. Osea, too was thrown off guard by the sudden Belkan Advance.

On April 2nd, the Belkan advance had reached its zenith on all fronts. On the Ustian front, only one major base remained, Valias, which was perched on top of the Ustian mountains. The Belkan Air Force attempted to neutralize it, but was unsuccessful, due to the reformation of the 6th Ustian Air Division into a force of Foreign Mercenaries. With there resources stretched thin by the multi-front offensive, the Belkan drive grinded to a halt.

This gave time for the Allies to regroup. In early April, the now unified allied forces of Osea, Sapin, Ustio, and Yuktobania, conducted Op. Roselin, which connected the Allied nations of Ustio and Osea through Belkan occupied Arlon, Sapin. This was in preparation for the Allied counter-offensive against Belka.

After diverting the Belkan Air Force's attention to the Round Table on the 20th with a diversionary recon mission, The Osean 3rd Fleet, with it's new capital ship, the OFS Kestrel moved through the Belkan-occupied Futuro Canal into the bay of Lumen, opening up an Air corridor into South Belka. This was the beginning of Offensive Campaign No. 4101 . By early May, all Osean and Sapin land had been liberated. All that remained was Ustio.

On May 12th, the Osean 122nd airborne launched Op. Varsity, a paratroop mission to take Solis Ortus, to gain Acces to the Ustian capital of Directus. Although the Belkans put up a fight, they were unable to hold Solis Ortus and were forced to fall back to Directus. The following day, with the Osean Army from the South and the Ustian Army from the North, as well as a civilian resistance movement directly in the city, the Allies were able to take Directus. This proved to be disastrous to the Belkans, for the HQ of the Ustio-branch Belkan army was in Directus, as well as most of the occupying army. With the loss of Ustio, the Belkan Army fell back to the Hydrian Line, Belka's first line of defense.

At this point, there was a dramatic shift in the war. Belka is no longer the aggressor, but the defender, as the Allies prepared to invade Belka. The story is told differently from each standing point.

On May 17th, the Allies launched Op. Hellbound, an attack on the centerpiece of the Hydrian line, Glatisant. The allies suspected that Glatisant was not just a fortress, but a nuclear weapons production facility. The mission was pegged as a nuclear inspection, which some of the Ustian Mercenary pilots found laughable. Despite the heavy AA defense network at Glatisant, The Mercenary forces are able to neutralize the defense capabilities of Glatisant.

With it's main fortress neutralized, the Belkan Military abandoned the Hydrian line, pulling back to their second line of defense in the Schayne Plains. Although this was well into South Belkan territory, the plains lacked defensive cover. The Allies thought to capitalize on this weakness, and on May 19th, they launched an air raid on the defensive positions in the plains. After the objective was completed, however, the Belkans deployed Excalibur against them. Most of the attacking force was destroyed by the Laser before they could escape, but a few pilots made it through, including the Mercenary Galm team.

Excalibur soon became the Allies Priority target, as the withering fire power of the laser tower kept their forces from advancing. Causality figures were placed high, as this was Belka's pillar of defense. On may 23rd, Ustian Mercenaries attacked Tauberg, the place where Excalibur was built, deep in North Belkan territory. Although 4 Jammers were present, and the defenses at Excalibur itself were fierce, the Ustians were able to destroy Excalibur. With Excalibur out of the way, the Allies continued to advance northward.

Then, on May 28th, Osea Announced its permanent abrogation of the Nonaggression treaty in front of the Assembly of Nations, and commenced Op. Battle Axe, a large scale Air sortie into the B7R/Round Table, which was still tight in the grasp of the Belkan Air Force. Although at first the battle seemed to go in the Belkans favor, destroying 40% of the Allied forces, the balance swung into the Allies court when the Demon Lord, as his new moniker was, entered the fray, and routed the Belkans, even defeating an Ace Belkan squadron.

Around the same time, South Belka was beginning to become weary of the war. Disillusioned of the patriotism and nationalism that lead them into the war, as well as having there land be torn up for defense line after defense line for the land in the north, South Belkan cities began to surrender and disarm peacefully. Unable to set defense positions, the Belkan Army retreated to the north to the Waldriech Mountains and the border between the Belkas. The end of the war was drawing near.

The Allied Air forces then started to make the destruction of Belkan war productions their main priority. On June 1st, the Allies launched a heavy bombing raid on the industrial center of Hoffnung. The bombing run wasn't a surgical strike, but Saturation bombing, where the bombers released ton after ton of unguided bombs on Hoffnung. In turn, the Belkans began to sabotage the facilities, to let nothing fall into the allies hands. The mission was A success, but with a terrible cost to civilian life.

With the fall of Hoffnung, Sudentor was the last major South Belkan city still under North Belkan control. Resistance there was fierce, due to weapons from the South Belkan munitions plant that was in the city. To put down the resistance, the Allies called upon the Ustian mercenaries to meet up with the Allied ground forces south of the city. On the way there, they flew over Stier, when a large bomber formation appeared to the north. Supposedly, it was carrying a nuclear bomb destined for Ustio. Through valiant fighting against improbable odds. the Mercenaries were able to destroy the entire formation, which, curiously, was being attacked by South Belkan fighters as well. Although they had stopped the bombers, several smaller jet fighters made it through, and dropped their payload.

Seven nuclear bombs were dropped on the Waldriechs, killing over 12,000 people. The EMP discharge from the Nukes made communication difficult for several days, but that did not keep the world from knowing what had happened. Everyone was stunned by the Belkan's grand act of self-sacrifice. They had lost the will to fight anymore, after watching the tragedy unfold before their eyes. The allies quickly agreed with the Belkan high command for a ceasefire. For the most part, the war was over.

Some Belkan officers, however, refused the ceasefire order, and began to regroup at the Yering Mine at Mt. Schirm in North-West Belka. Ustian Mercenaries were sent to quell the resistance, but found it to be larger than anticipated. Nevertheless, the mission was successful.

On June 20th, the official peace accords of the Belkan war were held in Lumen, South Belka. At same time, Unfortunately, another group of Belkan insurgents appeared on the Belkan coast near Anfang, decrying the peace accords. Due to the circumstances, the Allies secretly sent in mercenary forces to take care of the insurrection. Although, as, one of the pilots pointed out, there was too much resistance to be simply an insurrection, the mission was successful. The peace talks were held without incident.
