Why is slavery still prevalent in Elysium, afterall for a scientifically advanced society slavery is nothing more than waste of precious human resources and in this TL it should have been abolished in the aftermath of slave revolt.

For the record, I do not promote or defend slavery.

Elysian slavery is basically like Roman slavery, it was regulated and many slaves were not just unskilled workers, many could be doctors, engineers and even actors. Slaves with the worst luck or bad behavior were often sent to work in unpleasant or inhospitable places.

Still, the slave system also favors a reversal circle. The slave offers a worker to the Master, the Master gives the slave a job, food and shelter. Subsequently, the slave with the fruit of his work has obtained savings with which to buy his freedom from his master. Those monetary savings are the payment and the recovery of the investment of the slave. Even so, due to certain circumstances that have resulted in my disliking a certain group of people. I'm going to start the home stretch of this story and if you ask. Yes. The Manumission will apply... But something dark will come...

I REPEAT. I DO NOT FAVOR SLAVERY. All the information I say is real and historical based on slavery in Roman society

I'm not saying that you condone slavery or anything like that:coldsweat: sorry if it came like that.

What I was saying here was in accordance to your TL, an advanced society will naturally move forward from slavery or it will fall into a violent bloody disaster.

Slavery and servdom in most chases OTL did not simply go away because of morality, but because we had technology to render such institutions of human labor obsolete, but even that sadly has not eliminated modern slavery in our whole world, not even in all places that are becoming as urbanized, industrial advanced as the first industrialized nations that once led them as colonies. Getting rid of it in a society that has seen it as "normal" for nearly all of it's existence over centuries and millennia therefore might be a little more tricky and harder then OTL.

Furthermore, "economic logic" is not the only and last value to be taken into account.

Especially if we consider that the obsession to approach everything in purely economic terms is a modern thing.

Finally, OTL is full of decisions that "economically" did not make any sense but were made anyway.

Not to mention that technology not always helped the slave issue, without the I believe it was the Cotton gin plantation slavery would have simply become very financially non productive and therefore be abandoned much earlier OTL as it simply would have been a to high cost- to low revenue game on the long run. No matter how much a system is supported for ideological, or even racial reasons if it ain't profitable it can only run so long before killing itself, even in the most radical and strangest societies, as any continuation despite this sends the rest of the economy and state crumbling down with it otherwise.

Chapter 60 Caesar Marcus Porcius Aquilinus Minor 2785 AUC / 2031 AD - 2825 AUC / 2071 AD
David-Gandy-for-Marks-and-Spencer-22.jpg

Imperator Augustus Caesar Marcus Porcius Aquilinus Minor
By early 2030, the Classis Imperialis (Elysium Imperial Navy) was composed of Five Grecis (High Fleets). Each Grecis equipped with eight Aircraft Carriers making a total of forty Aircraft Carriers at the service of the Imperial Classis, the Grecis were divided into Atlanticus Borealis, Europa Borealis, Atlanticus Antarticus, Pacificus Borealis and Pacificus Antarticus: North Atlantic, Northern Europe, South Atlantic, North Pacific and South Pacific, respectively. In terms of naval power projection, Elysium held the top spot, followed by Europe, Japan, Scandinavia, India, China, and Russia. Elysium was in competition with Europe who fought in all spheres: economic, military, technological and diplomatic. Still, while Elysium lacked close enemies on its continent, Europe saw increased hostilities with the Ottoman Socialist Federal Republics, which experienced increased militarization while presenting a greater image of danger to Europe. For reasons such as the proximity of Elysium to Europe and the O.S.F.R., Europe had one of the largest armies in the world, which had the best equipment, training, and vehicles possible, including their own models of Lorica Bellator which were called Powered Exoskeletons, the first model It was called "Crusader", which had strong inspiration from Bellator. The first deployments of the Crusaders were ironically in the territories of British Arabia, which saw a strong focus of religious-social insurrection. While the communist leaders of Istanbul supplied weapons to groups in British Arabia. In the Balkans, the Austrian Empire began a campaign of religious-social agitation to start a process of rebellions that would allow an advance that would culminate in the restoration of the ancient Christian kingdoms of Romania, Bulgaria, Greece, Macedonia and others. The Austrians supplied the Hajduk with supplies, weapons, and military advisers.

While these events were occurring, the new Emperor of Elysium was Marcus Porcius Aquilinus Minor, son of the previous Emperor. Aquilinus Minor was an influential Conservative senator. His conservative principles focused on the preservation of what he saw as ancient Roman values, respect for traditions, even scrupulous honesty, these facts earned him the son, being considered a remarkable speaker to the point that in his youth he stood out for being an actor. who gave him more fame than other politicians. His political influence was closely related to his moralistic principles, his embodiment of Roman traditions that appealed to both the senators and the Elysian populace, conservative in nature, along with his reputation for closeness to the people. Aquilinius Minor was a promoter in the automation and improvement of the quality of life of the Elysian citizen. But perhaps the biggest controversy was the act of Manumission of slaves, although the fact generated strong controversy in the rural sectors, the advantages of automation made the rural landowners silence their complaints, managing to implement the absolute freedom of the slaves. Even so in many places the masters refused to let the slaves go peacefully, but the deployment of professional military forces ensured that the "reluctants" ended up freeing them while the Masters were rewarded with monetary bonuses. But while Aquilinius was publicly seen as a liberator who protected slaves and advocated a civilization that abandoned slavery, he actually feared the threat of global annihilation. This concern was shared by the top leaders of the Empire. In preparation for the possible destruction of the planet, Elysium began construction of a facility on Mons Olympus (OTL: Mount Elbert). Key members of the Empire: politicians, military, scientists, artists, and celebrities would be relocated to Olympus during a global catastrophe to protect the most valuable members and to rebuild with the sharpest minds. Because of this, the bunker was designed as a luxurious resort, with the latest technology available.

On the other hand, in Scandinavia, an anonymous group of people working within the government emerged consisting of pragmatic politicians who believed in solving problems without regard for ethical or moral intervention. Due to the resources at their disposal, they were able to perform various tasks without the King's authorization or knowledge. The group had the Scandinavian state in its best interest, but believed that moralism prohibited true progress and achievement, even to the point of being significantly involved in political and military affairs. One of these affairs was the Einherjar project, a military project in which a group of orphaned babies would be selected at birth and raised as highly disciplined soldiers understanding nothing more than military routine. While they would be trained to be obedient and ruthless soldiers, and all those deemed physically or mentally unworthy would be executed. The expected results would have the survivors considered impassive and dedicated fighting machines with no exposure to or understanding of the outside world. These methods included the observation of violent fights between animals, be they trained dogs against boars or other beasts, including a series of endurance tests where any child left behind by breaking formation is executed on the spot. This training was mostly conducted at the "Valhalla" Military Research Center, officially built as Karoliner Base on the Varanger Peninsula, while to the public, the base was the subject of light weapons or robotics testing. Which ensured that people would stay away in case of any encounters with the Einherjar during training runs. This project came would not be demonstrated until years later.

But the incident that would cause the greatest repercussion would be in 2037 AD, at the Castra Nautica (Naval Base) on the Isle of Mann, when a explosive exploded destroying five capital ships, while killing or wounding countless sailors, soldiers and soldiers. other staff on the island. The perpetrators of the attack were Her Majesty's Most Loyal Resistance, who were supported by agents from the European Empire. This attack served as an opportunity for the OFSR to gain the support of Elysium to wage war against Europe. Unfortunately for Europe, the brutal bloodshed was something Elysium craved. On April 21, 2038, the coasts of France and Iberia were suddenly surprised by the arrival of Elysian troops while Austria and England were surprised by the invasion of the OFSR. Although the British expected an attack at some point, they did not expect a mechanized offensive of such magnitude and by the week of the start of combat operations, Arabia was considered an area under Ottoman occupation with British elements such as the Desert Rats and the Devil's Brigade. as guerrilla rearguard forces.

On April 21, when a coastguard on the Spanish coast detected the immense fleet that was approaching, he quickly communicated the discovery and in half a minute, the Armed Forces of Europe were moving to face an invasion of Elysium. The Elysian legions were a well-oiled machine. Despite valiant efforts, the Elysian legions flooded the shores of Normandy and Portugal. Bombers flew over Lisbon and Paris, and within four days the Eiffel Tower suffered severe structural damage from cruise missiles. On April 27, the tower collapsed, collapsing over the city. On a road paved with roads littered with charred vehicles and fleeing refugees, legions of mechanized infantry and heavy support vehicles advanced in brutal combat against the Europeans, including two legions of Orbital Shock Commando who landed in the vicinity of Seville and they advanced under heavy fire towards the city. As they advanced, homeless citizens wept in the streets as tanks from both sides were destroyed in the streets, burning and sending plumes of black smoke into the skies as soldiers fought from house to house with no show or show of quarter. The waters near Rouen and Seville became literally red with blood, and the smell was horrible beyond words.

As soon as news of the landings broke, the Empire began preparing to strike back. The Holy Emperor began preparations to field an army of 1,000,000 men. He had to hit hard and fast and overwhelm his Elysium enemies. For in the Balkans and Africa, the Ottomans had begun to attack and invade the Austrian and British possessions respectively. Thousands of European soldiers marched to France and Spain while several squadrons of aircraft began to be sent to provide air support. The Elysian forces advanced, but Europe made them pay for every inch they advanced. Europa applied scorched earth tactics to negate the strategic positions, stretching their thin lines and slowing down the Elysium advance as much as possible. The impact of the orbital attack on the outskirts of Cordoba, the desperate fight for Ruan and the meat grinder of the Battle of Toledo that dragged on for two months.

Despite these conflicts, Space actually saw relatively little action during most of the war, with only a few locations engaging in open combat, and the war was divided into two separate regions that had little to do with each other: The Moon and The Orbit. More than 200,000 European soldiers stormed the Elysium facility on the Moon in one of the bloodiest campaigns of the war. About 50,000 Elysium soldiers fought back mercilessly. Huge nests of automated armored machine guns created zones of death and destruction on the lunar surface, while orbiting dropships unleashed company after company of soldiers on the Moon. Therefore, the Europeans had to fight the Elysians by engaging in brutal hand-to-hand combat all the way, under heavy machine gun fire, and facing off against hordes of robots that did not have the same handicaps as humans in the vacuum of space. Entire defensive installations were blown up remotely when they fell into enemy hands. But on December 17, a computer virus called "RED_FLAG" penetrated Europe's communications and control network. Within minutes, the European combat robots switched their IFFs and almost automatically viciously turned their weapons on their allies. Thousands of European soldiers began to be massacred by robots when this virus began to penetrate their code. Although the invasion of the Moon supposed an initial blockade of lunar goods to the Earth and Elysium. For by depriving Elysium of its most immediate source of helium-3, the Elysium war machine would be severely hampered. Luna's forces were only able to limit Elysium but with the deployment of RED_FLAG, the European fleet lost almost 80% of the invasion force. The European Fleet was decimated when it came under a daring attack at the hands of Lunar Space Defense Force elements in the form of starfighters and bombers. The situation in Orbita remained with little fighting. The European and Elysian space battlegroups fought each other until a middle ground was reached. The fighting included assaults on orbital defenses and the destruction of space fleets. The war saw the destruction of 2 attack groups on both sides.

After Elysium relayed the news of their invasion to the Ottomans, they began an invasion of the northern Balkans. This invasion required only a few hours to prepare, given the heightened state of alert in place. OFSR launched a simultaneous attack on Imperial European Air Force Austria and Command and Control centers, destroying all but 2% of military air assets in Austria and other Balkan territories. During the Turkish invasion, the Empire launched a massive counterattack against the Ottomans by amphibious invasion of the largely undefended shores of Durrës. The defenders were outnumbered more than six to one by the Imperial troops. The battle ended a series of crushing Communist victories. Despite this setback, OFSR continued its advance towards Vienna, launching a campaign through Romania into Hungary. The remaining Imperial forces attempted to hold Hungary, but were forced to withdraw after the fall of Budapest. As the Turkish forces advanced into Austria, Imperial air forces from the Italian Peninsula launched a massive air counterattack against the Ottomans, suffering heavy material losses. After the Imperial counterattack, and their advance slowed by Austrian guerrilla tactics, the Ottomans began conducting orbital bombing campaigns against strategic military centers in Italy in an effort to destroy the Imperial war industry and terrorize the population. While few hundred civilians were killed in these attacks, the psychological impact of orbital weapons striking urban centers was powerful. But the most brutal effect was the use of small nuclear explosive devices colloquially known as nuclear landmines or atomic demolition munitions (ADM), used on the Sinai Front by the Ottomans in scorched earth tactics to deny strategic positions.

However it would be in 2045, after seven years of war, the conditions in Imperial Europe had become unbearable, the government faced food shortages and uprisings throughout the territory, but the Imperial European army never relented. But due to the uprisings, the Holy European Empire was forced to accept the terms of surrender imposed by Elysium where France and the Iberian Peninsula, territories under complete Elysian occupation ended up being ceded to Elysium. Iberia and France renamed after their Roman territories: Hispania and Gallia, were in an almost anarchic state. The Elysium robots were doing most of the actual police work to keep the peace and put down any kind of rebellion or partisan activity.

In 2046, the Holy European Empire was facing a period of political instability in which civil unrest escalated into succession movements and civil wars. Iberia saw its capital change to the city of New Madrid (OTL: Johannesburg) but at the same time, it faced several armed conflicts between tribes such as the Tuareg, Berbers and other African groups. This at the same time was fueled by the supply of advisers and military weaponry from Elysium under the guise of abandoned weaponry from the war. During this time, the Mars colony had successfully started Japan's most ambitious project: the terraforming program. From the first landing, the colonies began spreading a cocktail of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) across the planet via disposable drones. These organisms, little more than bacteria, spread across the planet's surface by processing toxic dust into a usable soil base and extracting greenhouse gases from the soil. When a certain condition of these organisms were met (O3 levels increased to a certain point, the selenium content of the soil, etc.), a security mechanism in their genome would trigger their disappearance, depositing more vitamins in the new soil base. . Meanwhile, orbital mirrors, built with next-generation nanoprinters, were deployed on the moon to heat the planet's surface. Additionally, the new spaceport allowed asteroid mining companies to head out into the asteroid belt and start peppering Mars with asteroids to generate more heat and, by 2050, even expand the size of Mars' moons by moving several large asteroids into the martian orbit. From this continual addition of heat and a thicker atmosphere to contain it all, Mars rapidly developed oceans over the next several decades. The red planet now had a base from which to develop a biosphere, and although it would take decades, Mars was now well on its way to habitability.

At the same time, India's colonies on Mercury at the south pole grew to house a population of 6 million people who controlled and maintained a fleet of tens of millions of drones, all dedicated to stripping Mercury's surface of usable materials. with the ultimate goal of building a solar power system that would become a Dyson Swarm. By the time the true purpose was revealed, India had successfully deployed enough solar power satellites to double the total power of Elysium. At the same time, India used permanent space colonies as heavily armed military installations to build and maintain a larger and more agile space force. While on Saturn's Titan Moon, Asgard's nanodome was the largest in the solar system, covering the entirety of the mountain and extending to the floor of the Methane Sea over a kilometer from its shore. The shoreline of the Methane Sea was drained and exposed due to the construction of the elevator. Nitrogen from the massive dome was drained and pumped into space where it froze into a solid block. What nitrogen remained was used as 70% of the colony atmosphere to serve as a buffer. Fusion reactors and small solar mirrors heated the interior of the colony to a balmy 19 degrees C, melting the water ice that served as a surface for much of the planet. The same nanotech industry was crucial to building tents. of Titan to begin paraterraforming and secure the nitrogen atmosphere, and establish successive generations of colonies. Most of these early colonies were built at the foot of space elevators and had to constantly work to keep their interiors warm enough due to the extreme cold of Titan's surface. The Titans' methane and nitrogen economy supported the creation of orbitals near Saturn and the Saturnian shipbuilding industry.​
 

If this story is kept realistic this story won’t be able to use FTL without violating causality with FTL of any kind based our current math maybe we will see starships like the Avalon tho

FTL can’t be achieved without breaking causality and creating time paradox’s such as the famous grandfathers paradox if things are kept realistic then if not this story might need to migrate another forum

Idk we haven’t started violating and laws of physics such as FTL yet I believe so no it’s not unrealistic but it’s getting there
creating Dyson sphere and terraforming should not be possible with the level of technology shown here, as the humanity in this TL is still somewhere between Type 1 and Type 2 on Kardashev scale.

I do agree humanity is type 1 civilization in this story and it’s not a Dyson sphere it’s a dyson swarm which is possible also terraforming is also possible at our current technology it would just take 100,000 years with our current technology but technology is growing exponentially also there’s another kardashev scales called the Reverse Kardashev scale (The Barrow scale) and humanity in this story would be a type 4- minus civilization and a type 1 civilization on kardashev scale

That sounds awesome.

Anyway, imagine what all those nations could achieve, if they worked together. It's kind of sad that their ideologies are so different

Chapter 61 Caesar Gnaeus Avitus Macro 2825 AUC / 2071 AD.
QHzfUGtBwM0wGhE6m7mM7eMW0k6g3PIxSDPqnHmcvQE.jpg

The victory in Europe was such a triumphant success for Elysium that it decided to drop its name. Rebaptizing itself as the Roman Empire, under the pretext that as a colony of the Empire that never declared itself independent or rose in rebellion against it, it continued to be part of it. And since the officials of Elysium were at the same time officials of the Roman Empire, that towards the Emperor was the Emperor of Rome himself. The Triumph of Elysium-Rome meant an awakening in the ancient beliefs such as the Nordic religion Ásatrú and other pagan religions that were eliminated by the Christians. This uprising already led to religious clashes in Germany, the Baltic along with Scandinavia. The Italian Peninsula due to its position threatened by the "new" Roman Empire, saw an increase in military fortification. The European Imperial Army as well as Elysium saw at the same time a production capable of producing different types of Armor equipped to function as flamethrower infantry, mobile rocket artillery and armored combat engineers, including mine clearance and underwater sabotage. The war in space also saw the creation by Europe of space-rated ground armor variants for combat in lunar and Earth orbit that would not require lunar landing vehicles for offensive operations. The traditional three factors that determined the effectiveness of a suit's ability are its firepower, protection, and mobility. Firepower is the ability of an armored soldier to identify, engage, and destroy enemy targets using their primary weapon in conjunction with secondary weapons. Protection is the degree to which actual armor, profile, and camouflage allow the armored soldier to evade detection, ward off enemy fire, and retain functionality during and after combat. Mobility includes how well the armored soldier can be transported by land, sea, air, or space to the operational staging area; from the assembly area by road or over ground towards the enemy; and the tactical movement of the soldier over the battlefield during combat, including the passage of obstacles and rough terrain.​

Even so, the fear of an invasion and the extermination of the seat of clerical power caused the Vatican to begin preparing a plan for continuity. This plan, called Exodus, would focus on the evacuation of the Pope and the agencies of the Roman Vatican Curia to Madagascar. Island that in 2073 would be bought and subjected to a modernization process in a monetary investment of thousands of millions of Euros, the currency of the European Empire. By 2081, Madagascar was one of the most Catholic regions due to the great investment made by the Church. The children went to schools run by clerics, every Sunday the churches were filled with parishioners, delinquency was going down because the secrecy of confession in the confessionals acted as an informative goat on even minor crimes. Such an act was a wave that was growing. However, in the Roman Empire, he did not sit still. Augusta Elysium chose the new Emperor from her. Gnaeus Avitus Macro was the middle child of three brothers, born in Civis Aztecus. Macro's father became the richest person in the city, and became a prosperous real estate agent after an opportunity opened up after the conquest of Gaul and Hispania. Despite pressure from his older (and later younger) brother who volunteered to fight in the so-called War of Reconquest, Macro decided to spend his time trying to pursue a political career rather than a military career. Macro attended the Universitas de Elysium Augusta before graduating with high honors and a Master of Laws. A year later, he moved to his homeland to start his political career. Macro began his political career with the Patrician party. Macro believed in active government, high tariffs on goods from foreign countries, and the reinforcement of Roman identity on immigrants, yet his political career was hampered when he spoke out and favored views on Japan. This caused the senate to almost force him to accept a job as an ambassador. His time in Japan was relatively uneventful, which he would later state in a later Imperium interview that he "was constantly homesick". However, his time in Japan helped relations between Rome and Japan, leading to crucial Japanese involvement in Rome's terraforming of other planets. During the first few years in Japan, Macro met his future wife who made his time in Japan much more bearable. Macro's character for meritorious service was considered unblemished, and several Senators lent their full weight to his candidacy. Achieving victory. As Emperor, he often clashed with more traditional elements who were displeased with his Niponophilia.

Typical Pro-Japanese poster.
Macro's problems were heightened by the increasing violence in the streets as anti-Roman rebel cells attacked Roman settlers on Elysium. Macro sent troops to try to keep the peace in the new Provinces, which provoked a backlash when units in Lorica Bellator armed with machine guns and automatic grenade launchers were seen attacking civilians armed with shotguns and hunting rifles, which had received harsh criticism from the media. Macro's efforts to keep the peace alienated foreigners except in Japan and India. However, by 2077, it became clear that the rebellion had more military support than previously believed. In a maneuver worthy of the history books of cyber warfare. The Intelligence Interforze Center (CII Joint Intelligence Center) was hacked in what could be considered a total computer offensive that ended up stealing and destroying national and Rome data. Among the data was evidence of a possible European attack on the Roman military command structure and the main Roman command and control centers in Europe, attacks that were carried out even though they only killed 10% of the officers of the Legions thanks to the warning. On October 23, 2077, the Roma launched a daring attack on the capital of Europe. detonating a nuclear flare over the city and invading in force from covert assault ships in orbit. With only minutes to prepare for the attack once the invasion was launched, the Capital suffered heavy losses at the start of the Battle. The flare cleared the skies of drones and the EMP disabled most civil communications and services, while the fireball damaged/destroyed a number of other historical landmarks. The main blast radius did not deteriorate significantly to residential areas. but despite this, more than 85,000 people showed up because of the initial explosion. Emperor Gregory Van der Miklas, while in the hardened bunker along with the General Staff and members of the cabinet and staff who could flee to the safety of the hardened bunker, ordered all available European forces and armed personnel to defend the city. , calling in domestic security forces from as far away as Sicily to come to the aid of the Capital. The few forces that were in the immediate area were outside the blast radius and surrounded Leonardo Da Vinzi Airport, where Roman orbital shock commandos were setting up a forward emplacement. Initially, the European Emperor left command of the battlefield to the high-ranking officers in the field, who garrisoned St. Peter's Basilisk, Camidoglio, Colosseum in Rome before moving on to establish additional emplacements in the main squares. Roman forces quickly overwhelmed the hastily established garrisons at Esposizione Universale Roma and Università degli Studi Roma Tre-Ingegneria, and turned their attention to St. Peter's Basilisk, while additional forces routed European forces coming from the south, blocking any potential reinforcement.

House-to-house fighting and entrenched positions near the ruins of centuries-old monuments slowed the Roman advance, but with field commanders dead to decapitation attacks and only a handful of captains and lieutenants trying to coordinate a unified defense, the Emperor Gregory Van der Miklas took the field to directly supervise the defense of Europe's capital, the first European Emperor to enter the field of battle. Gregory Van Der Miklas coordinated the forces in Rome from the ruins of Castel Sant Angelo, which became a Forward Operating Base. The Battle of Rome would be the bloodiest in the last hundred years, with house-to-house fighting and open-field warfare resulting in thousands of casualties. For 36 hours the Roman and European forces fought like wild dogs fighting over a bone full of meat. The Space Forces engaged their enemies in orbit, invading European orbitals and destroying dedicated military platforms in a matter of minutes. Where the European military platforms were quickly destroyed, the Orbitals' invasion lasted five hours. On October 24, the first wave of Roman ground forces moved into Rome to assist the Roman forces fighting the Europeans, while an orbital bombardment with telephone pole-sized kinetic projectiles made of tungsten was carried out on the main urban and industrial centers of European Africa.

Hell falls on the Congo River.

The orbital bombardment in Africa caused chaos for certain regions such as South Africa, or British Africa. Roman operatives began to encourage political detente between the wealthier factions of the Creoles (of European descent and born in colonial territory). However, when the Creoles rose up, they started a rebellion throughout South and Central Africa. The front in Europe was weakened by these events and the few nearby European forces available to fight the rebels were unable to stop the spread of the rebellion on the colonial mainland, while more and more rebel groups began to emerge in response to the refusal. of the government to surrender. In the ensuing battles, rebel forces extensively used combat vehicles known as Technicals alongside stolen military equipment. Parallel 15 south
It was the dividing line between European and rebel territories until hostilities ended in 2080 with the signing of the Tripoli Treaty, which guaranteed the expulsion of the European Empire from its European possessions while the return of European troops guaranteed a greater number of troops to the south front. In the 4 year rebellion, billions died due to the use of chemical weapons and orbital bombardments while European armies combining aircraft, ships, infantry and armor had broken away and become mercenary armies, operating as marauding raiders. well armed or directing their own mini-kingdoms such as the Kingdom of the Congo or Lesotho. Perhaps one of the biggest innovations that would help instigate combat would be the Armored Bipedal Vehicles which are more efficiently described as human exoskeletons (ie due to the fact that they require and interact with the human nervous system). They were giants on the battlefield with a height of 8 to 14 meters and a typical mass of 20 to 100 tons.

Armored Bipedal Vehicles during the first operations.

In general, ABVs proved superior to conventional combat vehicles, being faster, better armed and better protected, creating a firepower-to-manpower ratio that also gives them a logistical advantage. ABVs were capable of replicating many of the movements that humans are capable of, including avoiding, deflecting, or lessening the impact of weapons. Their downside is the incredible expense associated with ABV production and maintenance, even the cheapest ABV can cost millions of Euros or Denarii, ensuring that the cheapest combat vehicles continue their role in the war. The first battle with ANV pitted Colonel Antonio Rizzo, pilot of the machine, against four rebel Conquistador heavy tanks and a company of heavy infantry in the Namib Desert and completely destroyed them without taking any damage. A new style of warfare arose at that time as ABVs could be deployed for off-road operations be it Lunar, land, sea or even air landings.​
