With Iberia they deliberately targetted where the military was massed at to finish the war with a decapitation strike which broke their will to fight. Ironically this might have prevented more casualties in the long run as I doubt Iberia would have surrendered the Islands (a springboard for any invasion!) as easily without the implications of an atom bomb looming over them. Other powers would have also considered intervening directly to finally cut Elysiumite ambitions down to size. As far as Nuking everything goes, it's counter productive to irradiate every bit of conquered territory if they plan on settling them with their Citizenry as well.

Even Soviets want use that like last resort card because they gonna need mess with the ruined areas.

MacArthur aka Mr. Atomic madman wanted use some Nukes for deny area between North Korea and Beijing.

Anyway... In the Next Chapter gonna see the Maratha-China War and his consecuentes and space race.
 
Chapter 57 Caesar Titus Aurelius Fulvus 2708 AUC / 1954 AD - 2738 AUC / 1984 AD

Imperator Augustus Caesar Titus Aurelius Fulvus
The newly elected Emperor would be Titus Aurelius Fulvus. Born on a farm in Neropolis, Neronia, to a local Patrician family, Aurelius worked as a teacher at Universitas and a Senator before winning the election for the new Emperor. Aurelius's domestic policy was aimed at expanding the Elysian way of life, public broadcasting, more developed health care, aid to education and the arts, urban and rural development, and public services. In addition, he sought to create better living conditions for the Freedmen, although at the same time, he centered part of the national budget to the newly created Collegium Caelum Elysium (Elysium Space Agency) responsible for the civil space program, aeronautical research and space research, at the same time. It facilities for training various procedures necessary for space travel. Titus Aurelius Fulvus would be considered one of the fathers of Elysium space colonialism.

y early 2709 AUC / 1955 AD, Elysium boasted an overwhelming 40,000 Pyrobola atoms with at least twice as many ICBMs capable of carrying it and the same number of Purobola Atomos in MIRV-capable intercontinental ballistic missiles. In a stroke of genius, in 1960, the Techneum designed a space plane that could carry out a series of military missions in orbit: from a long-range reconnaissance vehicle, to a space interceptor to sabotage enemy satellites, to even an orbital bomber that would leave the planet. and would re-enter when approaching the target area to release the projectile and then flee. All with the speed of an intercontinental ballistic missile and piloted by a human pilot who could land the aircraft at the same time. The project was approved giving rise to the first Caelus Aetherium (Combat Spaceship) that would have the designation CA-01

The interest in space exploration caused numerous entertainments: Novels, theaters, movies, series, even the first video games that caused a furor among young people. In 1960 AD, the best-selling video games were Roma Ad Astra (space combat arcade game) and Astra Exodus (Adventure Game). At the same time, versions of portable Ordinatrum (Computers) were being made that were considerably lighter than the first models created in 1930, but still needed to be plugged into an electrical source. Although the imperial government and military would have access to the UltraOrdinatrum (Supercomputer), a computer with a high level of performance compared to a general-purpose computer, it even had its own liquid cooling by means of an electronic coolant that was pumped through the supercomputer architecture. These UltraOrdinatrum would help at the time of the technological improvement of Elysium, to the point that several UltraOrdinatrum would support when the "Glacis Sepultus" project was carried out.

The "Glacis Sepultus" project was a secret program, which aimed to build a network of nuclear missile launch sites under the Greenland ice sheet. The ultimate goal of placing medium-range ballistic missiles under the ice was to have range to attack targets within Europe. The Glacis Sepultus project included a 52,000 square mile (130,000 km2) tunnel system, used to deploy up to 1,000 nuclear missiles. The launch complex floors would be 28 feet (8.5 m) below the surface, with missile launchers even deeper, and clusters of missile launch centers would be spaced 4 miles (6.4 km) apart. ) away. They were supposed to be changed periodically. Although the Project was secret, many Legionnaires and even logistics workers clearly saw the teams of nuclear weapons maintenance workers in the cities and facilities near the facilities. The facilities included a hospital, a general store, a theater/cinema, and a general temple. Besides the electricity supply was provided by means of a portable nuclear reactor.

One of the main highlights of the Fulvius Era was the achievement of Project Luna in 1960, with the landing of Astronaut Astranus and two Astronauts including a woman: Appia Claudia Caela. Astranus was noted for saying upon landing: "This is one small step for Elysium, but one giant leap for Mankind." The Luna Primus exploration team carried out several operations that included sampling lunar soil that was described as "very fine" and "almost like a powder", rocks that were extracted with the help of a pickaxe, and finally planting a kit containing a flag of Elysium designed to be erected on the Moon. The Primus Luna Mission also saw the deployment of the first remote-controlled roving robots to land on an alien body. Designed to support radio-controlled human lunar missions and collect images of the lunar surface, examine ambient light levels to determine the feasibility of astronomical observations from the Moon, conduct laser ranging experiments from Earth, observe X-rays solar cells, measure local magnetic fields, and study the mechanical properties of lunar surface material. The vehicles were powered by batteries that were recharged during the lunar day by a set of solar cells mounted on the underside of the lid. During lunar nights, the lid was closed and a polonium-210 heat source kept the internal components at operating temperature.

The investigations succeeded in discovering the existence of water deposits scattered throughout the broken surface and, potentially, in blocks or layers of ice in depth. In 1965, the Astra Luna Colony Project was started, the formation of the first lunar base was started by using the huge number of MIRVS that the Empire possessed and its reserve of missiles. By sending and assembling pre-constructed habitat modules, the Astra Luna Primus Colony was created, which consisted of several modules that included a Command and Control Module, a lunar research laboratory, a botanical garden to obtain oxygen, an infirmary- clinic, a dining room, a warehouse and a garage for lunar terrestrial vehicles. Power for the base was provided by solar batteries and a nuclear reactor also highlight a solar panel farm a kilometer wide and long.

Perhaps one of the greatest innovations created by Elysium would be the Litobolos (Mass Driver) which would be created by modular sections. A mass driver is an electromagnetic catapult that functions as a rocketless space launch method that would use a linear motor to accelerate and catapult payloads to high speeds. Litobolos would use coils of wire energized by electricity to make electromagnets. Sequential firing of a row of electromagnets accelerates the payload along a path. After leaving the path, the payload continues to move due to momentum. This modular Lithobolos would be used to catapult materials from the Moon to Earth using the scant lunar gravity. At the same time, mining using solar and nuclear energy would begin at the same time as water harvesting would begin and of greater importance. Helium-3. Unlike most nuclear fusion reactions, the fusion of helium-3 atoms releases large amounts of energy without the surrounding material becoming radioactive.

On the other hand, in 1960, it was possible to implant cybernetic technology on a human body for the first time, for practical and medical purposes. The lucky one was Publius Fabius Mexicus, a military veteran who lost his legs due to an artillery barrage in Northumbria. As a result, the development of cybernetic software increased significantly, with many of its owners being soldiers who returned home seriously injured. Medical body cybernetics became more sophisticated and widespread as technology advanced, Elysium, Iberia, Scandinavia, and Japan would be at the forefront of development and research as medicine evolved. However, despite the amazing innovations in the field of medicine and how pervasive body cybernetics was becoming, it was still expensive. The first prosthetic arm had no fingers, but was a heavy coarse, which needed antibiotics to prevent rejections.

On the other hand, Elysium installed the Telaoria Network. This efficient satellite telecommunications system would provide global coverage in high-frequency bandwidths to handle all of the Empire's satellite communications. On the other hand, the Red Castra Astra (English: Network Sky Fortress) was installed, a series of orbital installations designed for long-term human habitation for military intelligence purposes. Each Castra Astra is capable of receiving and transmitting an incredible amount of information at any one time and, thanks to its on-board computer, processing this information at an even more impressive rate. This gives the Elysians army the most extensive information network of all civilizations at the time. As the station had a near real-time connection to the command on the ground, the Elysians could easily outmaneuver any enemy and surprise attacks against the Legion were virtually impossible at the time. Despite the original Castra's military role, it was not equipped with any kind of weapon.

In 1960, the Maratha-Chinese War broke out, also called the First Mainland Southeast Asia War. To expand the Maratha territories, a series of processes were started where the Maratha Empire imposed through military interventions with false flag operations or supporting pro-Maratha rebellions. In the midst of these interventions, the Qing Empire was entered, which had been the object of a military modernization program that improved the military organization, doctrine, education and training of Chinese soldiers and officers within the Army, Navy and Air Force. . China was supported using weapons of European origin while the Maratha as well as Japan used Elysium-based versions. While certainly Maratha or Chinese military units were deployed, these were in support of the allies of Thailand and Cambodia. While China supported the Kingdom of Laos and Empire of Vietnam. Laos and Vietnam served Chinese interests while Thailand and Cambodia served the Maratha.

Even so, the war would be a series of campaigns indirectly confronting the Chinese and the Marathas. Vietnam would be the target of a guerrilla warfare campaign that would pit the thirteenth and current emperor of Vietnam, of the Nguyen dynasty: Bao Dai against the rebel guerrilla leader Ho Chi Minh who had almost control in the south with his capital in Saigon. In Laos, the pro-Maratha prince Souvanna Phouma clashed with his pro-Chinese half-brother, Prince Souphanouvong. Both wars would be quite a brutal confrontation where chemical and biological warfare and even widespread genocide were used to achieve victory. Souphanouvong would be nicknamed the Red Prince for the alleged blood spilled by his troops, though loyalists say it's because of the color identifiers. On the other hand, to ensure victory in their proxy war, China and the Maratha would even compete in the space race.

Even China caused the disaster at the Satish Dhawan Space Center when the space shuttle Chandrayaan-1 was destroyed by a Chinese saboteur who was captured by special Maratha teams who took him to the facility known as Naraka. The Maratha would respond by financing the Xinjiang Uyghurs who had long suffered from abuses by the imperial government, to the point that they were suspected of implementing a possible Final Solution similar to the one exerted on the Dzungar tribe in 1755–1758. Soon the Empire would begin to suffer armed uprisings with Maratha weapons, even the word Jihad would begin to be used among the combatants, the fiercest would be the Mujahideen: Groups of guerrilla fighters who would use religion and Jihad as a spiritual guide and motivation. The fiercest would be groups that would go into combat singing funeral songs and wearing enemy blood-stained clothing, which would give an almost Dantesque image that, combined with their brutality, would cause amazing effects.

One of the most outstanding military movements would be the annexation of the Maratha Empire of the Kingdom of Nepal when China would try to annex the country in the same way that it did with Tibet, but the government requested help from India while the Gurkha military units kept at bay to the pro-Chinese supporters who tried to seize power. The Failure in the Nepali Intervention caused China to begin to develop a feeling of republicanism that began to have fame among the younger military circles. On the other hand Japan would continue a policy of annexation in Southeast Asia, which unlike China, was shared with the Maratha Empire who assumed control of Sumatra. Unfortunately for the Maratha, the Ottoman Socialist Republic would have managed to annex the Imperial State of Persia in its Socialist Union, which saw the emergence of a new Socialist Republic.

In 1960, at the same time, Iberia built the "Tunel del Estrecho", a modern tunnel under the Strait of Gibraltar. Iberia first proposed a modern tunnel under the Strait of Gibraltar in 1930. A major problem arose when contract engineers discovered that the material under the Strait was extremely hard rock, making tunneling impossible with available technology. The depth of the strait extends to 900 meters (3,000 ft) on the shortest route, although it is only about 300 meters deep a little further west, in a region known as the Alféizar de Camarinal; the European and African tectonic plates meet around this area. Finally, a shorter route was chosen, between west of Tarifa and east of Tangier of about 40 kilometers (25 miles) in total. This tunnel would handle automotive and rail traffic and would be 900 meters (3,000 feet) below sea level. This tunnel would serve as a starting point for other megaprojects.

On the other hand, in Japan, the construction of the Megablocks would begin, a plan devised by Elysium engineers with the objective of using space and vertical construction. Each Megablock is an arcology with the objective of granting houses. The Megablocks individually contain shopping centers, parks, food courts and other amenities that residents may need, later tunnels, pedestrian bridges and monorails were included that allowed them to go from one point of the city to another without even going outside. This use made Japan begin to experiment with vertical farming systems that allowed greater agricultural growth. Soon, the system would be copied in the Maratha Empire, Elysium, China, England, Scandinavia, and the rest of the world. On the other hand, Japan would stand out for beginning the development of the first ground vehicles, vertical take-off, hover and navigate using jet propulsion as well as the vertical take-off and landing (VTOL). This vehicles gonna have the name of Aerodyne Vehicle commonly abbreviated as AV.

Unfortunately for some, Elysium would have developed in 1965 the Pyrobolum Atoma Martius Magnus Ultor (Great Avenger), a hydrogen bomb with an explosive capacity of 58 megatons of TNT (240 PJ). The nuclear test was carried out in an area called Ikahuak, the fireball had a size of 113.31 km2 (43.75 mi2), a shock wave of 893.65 km2 (345.04 mi2) and a heat distance of 8289.25 km2 (3200.49 mi2). The effects were so brutal that Russia and Scandinavia along with other powers were alerted by activating their reserves of nuclear missiles while using spy planes and satellites to discover the reason. The explosion is one of the cleanest in the history of atmospheric nuclear tests per unit of power, since more than 97% of the explosion power was provided by a thermonuclear fusion reaction, which generates practically no radioactive contamination, although in itself provided a large amount of radioactive fallout; however, Martius Magnus Ultor was actually relatively clean.

By 1970, the Chinese Civil War would break out. That would face the forces loyal to the Imperial Qing government and the Xuantong Emperor, separatist factions throughout China and especially the recently created Republic of China led by commanders Chang Hsueh-liang and Sun Li-jen. As the riots spiraled out of control and the government faced unrest in Pekin, several Imperial Army commanders staged a coup on July 11, 1970. However, the Republicans faced opposition within the army, mainly Manchu-origin military units. and close to territories that had shown Imperial favor. The situation worsened when many soldiers returned home not only to find their villages being ravaged by fighting between republicans and imperialists, while control of the country was divided between former military cliques in the more "frontier" areas.

Among these movements would be the Turkic Islamic Republic of East Turkestan in the Xinjiang Uyghur region. The Chinese People Republic based in Yan'an. China would become a state consumed by war and India and Japan would watch with avidity to the point that they would use the excuse of "Peacekeeping Interventions" to test military equipment. All with support from Elysium who would use it to test their new weapons systems. One of the most notable facts was the massive increase in slavery and its sale. The armies of these warlords used to rape or take many women into sexual slavery and to obtain financing, be it monetary or equipment, sell them in the so-called International Ports that were under the occupation of Japan and elements of its army.

In the middle of that situation, Elysium Special Forces began in support with Japanese units deploying prototype exoskeletons to the field to assist with long range foot patrols and combat engineering duties. While they were successful, no attempt was made to significantly armor them for combat roles, at that moment. Reports of Legionaries using exoskeletons to fire heavy machine guns from the hip began to influence the image of these exoskeletons and his support for the project in process. In 1973, during the Battle of Qingdao, the Centurias Legionary deployed to aid Japanese army units to defend one choke point. After losing one of their combat engineers, one soldier fitted himself with his exoskeleton and armored himself with an EOD suit, wielding a Polybolum to provide suppressing fire from several buildings. The incident was reported to the Bellum Ministorium, where it gained a popular following among several ranking officers. By 1990, the first Elysium-made Exoskeleton was deployed in some units. Apart deployed for help in the building of structures in the Moon.

At the same time, the installation of new railway transports that worked by using a large number of magnets for support and propulsion based on magnetic levitation began. This method has the advantage of being faster, quieter and smoother than conventional wheeled public transport systems. At the same time it has the potential to exceed 6,440 km/h (4,000 mph) if done in a vacuum tunnel. When a vacuum tunnel is not used, the energy consumption required for levitation does not usually represent a large part of the total, since most of the energy consumption is used to overcome air resistance, as with any other train Of high speed. This Magnetic System stood out because its motors do not need physical contact between the vehicle and the track. One drawback is the very high cost of the necessary infrastructure for the road and the electrical system, and another no less relevant is the high energy consumption.

By 1980, the firm vision of extending the empire to the stars led to the creation of Selenepolis. Building a lunar launch pad using an electromagnetic catapult to propel the vehicles back to Earth would mean that the cost of each return trip would be essentially nothing. With costs reduced to a fraction of their previous size, the number of annual expeditions to the Moon increased. Unlike previous designs, the new models did not require disposable fuel tanks or rockets. They were a completely self-reliant ship and would cost only as much as fuel and repairs to launch. Although at the current level of technology on Elysium this was impossible, it was done thanks to a refueling satellite placed on the Earth-Moon A3 Punctum Agravitas (OTL L4 Lagrangian Point). The ship would simply dock with the station, refuel, and then be propelled electromagnetically by the station in the direction of the Moon. This method allowed easy transportation to outer space, giving a huge population boost to the thriving colony that by 1980, would have a population of 5,000.
 
In case nobody notice. The Pyrobolum Atoma Martius Magnus Ultor is basically the Tsar Bomb. And Glacis Sepultus is based in a real US project...
Sooner and later, all intergalactic space and cosmos shall lead to Elysium. He and his angels shall bring the legacy of man beyond the stars.

Humanity and Elysium above all else.

"May the God-Emperor of Elysium be luckier than Augustus, and better than Trajan"

I have a feeling that the People's Republic of China is still going to be born.

in a few chapters elysium contacts the turians and the war of first contact begins on the colony of cartago nova 😁
 
I wonder how Elysium would handle against the Goa’uld if they found a stargate and begin to colonize worlds. They would be more advanced than the United States and could advance much more if SG-1 (Jack O'Neil, Daniel Jackson, Sam Carter) were born in Elysium and would later meet up with Teal'c. I am interested on how they would handle the galaxy with more advance technology they have under their hands.
