    There is a lack of the Philippines in this thread. I shall endeavour to fix that.

    +++

    When the United States of America tore itself apart in its civil war, its protectorates found themselves alone in a world gripped by revolution and war. The Commonwealth of the Philippines was one of those protectorates. Seized by America as a spoil of war from Spain during the Spanish-American War, the Philippines was America's colonial experiment. For decades, the Philippines was under the thumb of the United States who generously provided the island nation tutelage in nation-building with the eventual promise of Independence under the Tydings-Mcduffie Act. The period of American rule referred to as the Commonwealth Period, was generally peaceful and stable.

    That all changed when America imploded.

    Suddenly, the Philippines found itself two choices. To declare independence and govern as a free nation. Or, wait until 1946, the proposed year of Independence under the Tydings-Mcduffie Act, and perform its obligations as America's 'Little brown brother'. The ones who advocated loyalty argued that America would be grateful for Filipino loyalty and would graciously reward the country should they win. Their arguments were drown out however, by those who advocated Independence. The independence advocates reminded them about the seizure of their Islands by the Americans, of American failure to honor their previous promises of Independence and of how they, all veterans of the Philippine-American War, suffered during the brutal conflict.

    The Commonwealth Government butted heads on which route to take until a Filipino politician, Manuel L. Quezon, suggested to try out both options. His suggestion was considered and finally approved by President Emilio Aguinaldo.

    Mere weeks after the outbreak of the American Civil War, President Aguinaldo with support from the Philippine Army and Constabulary, declared the Second Philippine Republic. Although independent, he stressed that the Philippines would still honour its obligations towards the United States.

    There were a few hurdles towards his declaration. The decision was heavily-criticized by the remaining American forces and the American High Commissioner, Frank Murphy. But as American strength in the islands was a mere shadow of its former self as most of the troops left for America, there was little they could do but begrudgingly acknowledge Filipino independence. Another hurdle were two attempted coups. The first was a syndicalist uprising and a second was an army coup. The syndicalist uprising was quickly dealt with by a combined Filipino-American force. The army coup was also similarly dealt with. The last hurdle was the showing up of not one but two Imperial fleets in Manila Bay. A squadron from the Kaissereich's Ost-Asien fleet and another one from the Imperial Japanese Navy. The Germans had sailed into Manila with a letter recognizing Filipino independence, an offer to join the Reichspakt, and financial/military aid. In exchange, the Republic would have to lease bases and airfields to Germany as well as some other diplomatic hobnobbing. The Japanese also arrived with a similar worded letter though vague and somewhat contradicting.

    The arrival of fleets of two rival powers sparked tensions. Thankfully, it was defused by the last high-ranking remaining American Naval officer left in the country who told both fleet commanders in private that "showing off each others guns wouldn't benefit anyone and the last thing the world needed was another World War." The fleet commanders agreed and left, leaving behind a diplomatic team to do the talking for them instead.

    With those resolved, the Philippines geared for war.

    The blade that would define Philippine units, the bolo, which was used effectively as both a construction tool and as a weapon of war. CSA and AUS units feared the bolo and most especially its wielders as one AUS soldier commented "Those Filipinos would kill you with those things with a smile."

    The Battle that would define Philippine contributions against Syndicalism and Radicalism, the Battle of the Gap. A unit of the Philippine Scouts defend their position against two attacking forces, the AUS and CSA in a gap contested by the three sides, the 43rd Infantry Regiment attacked first, forcing the initial AUS units to retreat. The Scouts dug in, expecting an AUS counter-attack which happened two days later. The Scouts held their position admirably and forced the AUS to retreat for good. As soon as the AUS was sent whipped, the CSA attacked which nearly drove the 43rd running but a infiltration attack made by the 26th Scout Cavalry Regiment that killed the CSA general saved the Filipinos from being beaten and sent the CSA forces into disarray

    The Daredevil Cavalry Charge that turned the tide. The Scouts had discovered, through a defector, that the brass of the CSA army in that area had made a nearby mid-west town as their headquarters. The Scouts immediately acted upon this information and with the help of a Native American Indian, slipped past the CSA lines and made a suicide charge that killed most of the CSA brass. The Scouts who performed the charge were all killed by vengeful CSA militiamen but their sacrifice proved sufficient enough to turn the tide. (Just imagine the Japanese soldiers as CSA militiamen and the Philippine background with that of a Mid-west town)

    McArthur, upon hearing their feat, famously remarked "Give me 10.000 Filipino soldiers and I shall conquer the world!"

    A few minor quips

    1. Emilio Aguinaldo would never be voted as President of the Philippines again as he had two popular heroes, Andres Bonifacio and Antonio Luna, killed. Bonifacio led the pre-eminent Philippine revolution against Spain while was Luna as the Commander-in-Chief of the Philippine Army during the Philippine-American War. It is popularly maintained that if Luna wasn't assassinated, the Philippine would have turned the War against America since Luna advocated strategies that the Vietnamese under Go Nguyen Giap would do in the Vietnam War. The President of the Philippines should have been Manuel L. Quezon who was elected in the year before.

    2. The Philippines was Asia's first republic having declared Independence in 1898 from Spain but it only lasted for a year and three months since America Manifest Destinyed itself across the Archipelago despite promising to honor Filipino independence so it makes no sense as to why Kaissereich would have democracy being an American thing when our own heroes learned and practiced it before.

    3. Lastly, Philippine focus tree when? The country has such a rich history and leaving it with a vanilla tree would be wasting it. If it is about resources, the argument is invalid considering Mindanao has such rich in Iron which is necessary for steel and Chromium so this could easily be explained as to why Helmuth's Ost-Asien would seize it. Also, Palawan has oil.

    I figured I'd combined two of my favorite video games, Fallout and Kaiserreich, so here goes!

    [​IMG]

    Logo for the video game series Fallout. The games in the series include Fallout (1997), Fallout 2 (1998), Fallout 3 (2008), Fallout: New Vegas (2010), Fallout 4 (2015) and Fallout 76 (2018).

    Fallout is a video game series which takes place in an alternate-history world which diverged from real history in the aftermath of the Second Weltkrieg, when the transistor chip is never invented, leading to a world where the technology and culture of 1950s America, including the Red Scare and Black Scare, the fear of far-leftist and far-rightist infiltration of American society after the victory of President MacArthur's government in the Second Civil War, continues well into the 21st century and into the 2070s. Thus this leads to a world of more primitive computers, atomic powered cars, AI robots, among other things.

    In regards to the history of the Fallout world, the KalterKrieg never ends and continues well into the 2070s. Nations such as the Russian State, the Danubian Federation, the Qing Empire, the Brazilian Empire, among others, also still exist into the 2070s. In 1969, the subdivisions of the United States are reorganized, with different states becoming parts of thirteen larger Commonwealths. In 2020, the Republic of France, Italy, Spain and Portugal united into the Western European Commonwealth, in an effort to act as a greater counter-weight to the German Empire and Mittleuropa. In 2022, Sweden, Norway and Denamrk united into the Empire of Scandinavia, with the King of Sweden as Emperor of Scandinavia. For the first decades of the 21st things are mostly normal throughout the ongoing KalterKrieg. However, all of this changes in 2052 when a "New Plague" arises, killing tens of thousands, and the worlds fossil fuels begin to dry up, leading to the Recourse Wars. With the German Empire and Mittleuropa, Western Europe, Danubia, Scandinavia and the United Kingdom dependent on oil imports from the Middle East, the five powers join together in the Grand Alliance and declare war on the Arabian Axis of Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, Oman and Yemen. The Russian State, with the powers of Europe distracted, declares war on Iran, Kurdistan and Turkey. Meanwhile, smaller nations like Ireland, Serbia, Greece and Bulgaria, among others, go bankrupt. As a result of the Recourse Wars, the Council of Nations disbands on July 26, 2052. Soon afterwards, small scale nuclear exchanges occurred between the Grand Alliance and the Arabian Axis, leading to humanitarian crises. The war finally ends in 2060 after the oil wells in the Middle East all dry up. The Western European Commonwealth, the Empire of Scandinavia and the Danubian Federation then break up into numerous separatists and warring states. The German nations of Mittleuropa also begin to turn against and declare war on the German Empire.

    As a result of the Recourse Wars, tensions increase between the United States of America and Kingdom of Canada, but things remain cordial between the two powers. However, in 2060, after years of political instability in the formerly Socialist and Syndicalist nation of Mexico, the United States invades their southern neighbor in an effort to ensure stability, but also to make use of the natural resources of Mexico. In 2066, with the oil fields of both the Russian State and the Qing Empire of China drying up, the Russian State and Qing Empire of China join up in an emergency alliance and invade the formerly-Russian territory and US State of Alaska, thus leading to the Russo-Sino-American War. The war last for many long years and sees the use of many new technologies, including Power Armor, Laser Weapons, Plasma Weapons, among others. In 2074, American power armor units, infantry and mechanized divisions are deployed to Siberia and a number of regions throughout southern China. During the war, Canada remains neutral but supports the United States through weapons, technology and volunteer divisions. Nevertheless, tensions begin to rise between the USA and Canada over the depletion of the Albertan Oil Fields and increasing American economic power over Canada. In 2075, the United States annexation of Mexico is complete, leading to resistance from much of the Mexican population. In an effort to "secure stability" within the Caribbean region, the United States launches mostly bloodless invasions and occupations of Central America, Costa Rica, Panama, Cuba, Haiti and the Dominican Republic, leading to protests from Canada and the Caribbean Federation.

    In January, 2077, the last Russian and Chinese forces are expelled from Alaska, leading to celebrations throughout the United States. Meanwhile, the United States continues to occupy much of Siberia and Southern China. Thus, the war continues. Finally, on the morning of October 23, 2077, at 9:42 AM EST, nuclear strikes from atomic bombs, either Russian or Chinese, are launched over New York City and Philadelphia. In retaliation, the United States launches nuclear weapons against numerous cities in both Russia and China. Five minutes later at 9:47 EST, Washington DC and Boston are struck by atomic bombs. Nuclear exchanges then occur between the US and Canada. The Russian state then invades and launches nuclear weapons against the remnants of Mittleuropea, Danubia, Scandanavia and Western Europe, as well as the nations of the United Kingdom, Romania, Serbia, Bulgaria and Greece, leading to nuclear strikes again Russia by Germany, Austria, Sweden, France and the United Kingdom. France and Germany then launch nuclear weapons against each other, the same happening between many other nations. The Qing Empire also launches nuclear weapons against India, Japan, Korea, the Philippines and Insulandia, all allies of the United States. Australasia, where it is already early in the morning on October 24, 2077, is also struck by nuclear weapons. In South America, nuclear strikes occur between Brazil, Argentina, Peru and Gran Colombia. In Africa, nuclear exchanges occur between South Africa and numerous other nations. In the Middle East, nuclear exchanges occur between the Republic of Iran and the remnants of the Arabian Axis. Thus, the world is destroyed by a large-scale, world-wide nuclear war in the Third Weltkrieg, or what would come to be called by future generations as the Great War.

    Not long before the Great War, a massive corporation known as Vault-Tec built a series of numbered vaults all throughout the United States of America, all in an effort to save a select number of Americans from a nuclear war, but also to conduct a series of often unethical social experiments upon these unknowing survivors.

    Thus, the stage is set for a post-apocalyptic, 1950s-influenced America.

    Map of the short-lived Danubian Federation (1937-1953). After Hungary was defeated in a short civil war in 1937, a democratic federation was established as a last ditch effort to unify the now relatively ancient Austria-Hungary empire. The new state was arguably the deciding factor in the Second Weltkrieg, pushing back the French from Munich and defeating the Belgrade Pact, stopping the complete eradication of Romanian “undesirables”. Nationalism proved too tough of an obstacle for the federation to overcome, sadly, as lingual and cultural divides still remained even after the war, not helped due to plans of incorporating Wallachia and Moldavia as new states. The nation broke apart after the Hungarian Declaration of Independence in the summer of 1953. German meditation and military threats were the only things that stopped a full blown massive Balkan war that would have killed hundreds of thousands. The rump Austrian State was incorporated into Gemany after the Treaty of Vienna in 1954.

    Flag of independent Bohemia (1990-). Bohemia today is part of the Reichkspact and almost a central extension of the German empire, almost completely economically integrated into the Kaiserreich. It has the highest standard of living out of any of the former Danubian states, not counting the non-independent Austria.

    Diagram of SMS Kaiser Wilhelm
    The Kaiser Wilhelm class of super-dreadnoughts were the largest gun-based vessels ever to sail the oceans. First conceived of during the Dreadnought Race between Japan, Britain, America and Germany, the Kaiser Wilhlem's were not designed because Germany truly needed such ships, but also as a matter of prestige and national pride. The classes' flagship, the eponymous Kaiser Wilhelm would set sail in 1930, and its sisters Bismarck and Tirpitz would be completed, after some delays, in 1936.

    Armed with 4 massive 18-inch turrets, and nearing 100 secondary guns of various calibers, the Kaiser Wilhelm's were easily the most powerful vessels of their age. They were not without weaknesses, their rushed initial construction, inefficient engines and distinct lack of dedicated anti-air armaments made them reliant on a dedicated supporting fleet lest they be caught off guard but nevertheless mechanically all 3 vessels of the class were functional in their role as dreadnought-killers. Had the Second Weltkrieg broken out in 1936 or 1937 the Kaiser-Wilhelm class would have dominated the naval conflict, but it was 1939 when war between the Internationale and the Reichspakt errupted, and the two years difference meant that the war would not go the way the German Admiralty had predicted.

    The Battle of the Mediterranean was the first combat that any of the class saw, the Bismarck, attached to the Mitteleerflotte, engaged the combined fleets of Socialist Italy and the French Commune off the Balearics on July the 18th. Over the course of three days of constant battle that followed the Bismarck sank three older French dreadnoughts and depending upon the source as many as 13 cruisers, but would itself be the first known Dreadnought to be sunk by airpower. The Internationale was the only French heavy carrier completed in time for the 2nd Weltkrieg, following the Mediterranean conflict it would need repairs for almost a full year, ultimately being sunk by a mine near the Sicilian coast in 1942, but its torpedo bombers wrought a devastating salvo directly into the Bismarck's rudder, whilst a lone divebomber scored a direct hit on the ammunition magazine of turret 2. Unable to move or shoot, the ship would flounder for almost a day before Admiral Donitz confirmed that the wider battle had been lost, and ordered the ship to be scuttled.

    The Tirpitz and Kaiser Wilhlem serving in the High Seas Fleet would escape the fate of the Bismarck at first, and indeed would survive the Third Jutland more or less intact where the majority of the German dreadnought fleet was sunk. Fleeing back to port the twin dreadnoughts would make occasional sorties but not directly engage in combat for several more years. It was not until 1943 and the German Collapse that the vessels would see action.

    Wilhelm the Third could not evacuate to the few loyal German colonies by land, the Egyptians were hostile and the Russians threatened war on Austria if they allowed it. Instead a mixed fleet of civilian and military ships departed Wilhelmshaven in the dead of night on September the 5th 1943, heading directly through the English Channel in a mad dash for Africa. Half the fleet wouldn't even make it past normandy, and as the combined might of the PLN bore down upon the hapless remnants of German pride, the Kaiser Wilhelm turned around. Admiral Raeder's actions are in posterity thought to have been to protect Wilhelm III, who was on board the Tirpitz, but at the time all that was certain was that the largest vessel in history was making a direct charge at the British fleet. The Kaiser Wilhelm scattered the British lines, but inflicted only a few casualties before it was sunk by sheer weight of fire and air power. The German evacuation fleet would escape, albeit heavily mauled to Sudwestafrika where Wilhelm III would set up the German Empire in Exile.

    The Tirpitz would remain docked off Walvis bay for four and a half years until the Askari state of Tanginikya officially unified with the GEIE, whereupon it would be moved to Dar Es Salaam. Though occasionally being used for official transportation for the Deutsch Sudafrikan government, and on one occasion fire support during the Zanzibar revolt. Maintaining the ancient vessel however grew steadily more difficult, and in 1978 it would officially be retired to the status of a museum vessel. The Tirpitz is currently hosted at the Dar es Salaam naval museum, one of only eights surviving dreadnought vessels, and the only one constructed prior to the beginning of the Second Weltkrieg.

    National Populist guerrillas take a last stand in Somalia against Federal and Paneuropan forces, 2019. Although the collapse of the Russian State in 1988 ended National Populism as a driving force in international politics, holdouts still exist, with examples in the aforementioned Xoraytna Qaranka (National Liberation), the Ukrainian
    Svobodnaya Armiya Diya Osvobozhdeniya Rodiny (Free Army for the Liberation of the Motherland) and the New Sliver Legion in the South of the Union of American Socialist Republics.

    National Populist leader of Somalia Siad Barre, a national hero to some today, developed his views when on education at Russia's Kornilov Military Academy. Effectively vassalized Ethiopia, with Eritrea becoming a de facto puppet and released, as well as pupating the chowed off remains of Mittleafrika. Developed the Somali navy, leading to successful interventions in the comoros. Known for a "benevolent" dictator image to some. (In this, somali didnt have a bloody civil war, and he mostly kept clanism in check)

    The last photo of Antonio Guiteras Holmes alive. Following the March on Havana, Holmes and many of his followers attempted to gain asylum at the French diplomatic mission in Cuba. However, Cuban soldiers stormed the building and captured him along with many of his followers. They were all executed the next day, and this would help Ramón Grau San Martin solidify his control over the country.

    German Panthers moving to the Eastern Front. March 5th, 1943

    As the Second Weltkrieg progressed, the need for heavier and better armed tanks arose. Both sides went from using lightly armored and lightly gunned tanks to powerful medium and heavy tanks. The development of the Panther is unique because it was the only German tank of the war to rushed into service as a sort of stop-gap. The Panzer III with its 50mm gun was out of date by mid 42, and the upgunned Panzer IV, while still excellent, would sometimes have trouble penetrating enemy tanks sometimes. The German response was the Panther. Putting a better 75mm gun into a tank with well sloped armor, the Panther was a force to be reckoned with from the day it entered service to the end of the war. The Panther was also hard on its crew. Engine failures and transmission breakdowns were common, and even with newer variants improving the design, all the Panther's problems still weren't solved by the end of the war.

    AI founder Sir John Stanley
    Amnesty International is the largest human rights organization in the world behind the Red Cross. Founded in 1949 in the aftermath of the Second Weltkrieg by Sir John Stanley, a son of British Exiles from Portsmouth, after witnessing the effects of Mosley's regime on the UK and Ireland. It was started using funding primarily provided by the British Reconstruction Authority leading to longstanding accusations of being a extension of British foreign policy (even though Stanley paid back the loan in full in 1950 out of pocket) mainly propagated by the various despots still ruling large swathes of planet Earth. For the first few years AI spent most of its energy in galvanizing public support in ensuring the development of the increasingly authoritarian BRA into a more republican force not unlike the one that fled the UK all those years ago. After the BRA was disbanded and the UK declared 'rebuilt' in 1956 AI turned its attention outwards to the various points of concern for humanitarians:
    • Central Asia: The Russian State under an increasingly senile Tsar had recently turned its once benevolent rule over the Muslim's in Central Asia into a reign of terror after an alleged Muslim extremist threw a grenade into a Russian troop formation in Astana killing 5 and injuring 13. The resulting crackdown dissolved the Tsar-backed Spiritual Administration of the Muslims of Central Asia and Kazakhstan and replaced it with the new Muslim Integration Council. Traditions deemed un-Russian were suppressed and to be phased out, Muslim children were to be taken from their parents and put in Orthodox schools and in many places open worship of many Muslim holidays like Eid Al-Fitr, Eid Al-Adha and Ramadan as a whole were banned. In its huge Report on Central Asia, the first of many, AI laid out the systematic oppression of Muslims in the region at the hands of the Tsar or as the report pointed out, his influential associates like Alexander Kazembek which infuriated the Russian government. At the next meeting of the League of Nations the Russian ambassador to the body spent four hours trying to systematically disprove all of the accusations of mistreatment and instead paint Stanley as a spurned supporter of Savinkov himself, whose counterrevolutionary tendencies led to his imprisonment in the late 40s. The response to his speech was applause from the various puppet leaders of the Russians, but silence by the rest of the world. Mounting pressure by foreign governments eventually forced the Russian Tsar to ease his suppression and instead revert back to the old system in 1967 even though accusations of further repression continue to this day. AI soon after issued another report essentially saying it was to little to late and that the Muslim traditions of Central Asia were irrevocably shaken by the experience.

    • The American South: The American Union State may have dodged a bullet after the assassination of Pelley during the Civil War but the resulting administration was still bad The country was under the rule of George Horn van Moseley, General Commander of the American Legion while the vanishing of Huey Long after a Baton Rouge dinner some years back was being investigated by the FBI. Meanwhile Jim Crow laws grew harsher and many minorities like Blacks and Latinos were herded into unofficial ghettos across the country which fell quickly into disrepair and poverty. Any protest to try and change the status quo was met with heavy hands by the majority white police forces from the nearby cities. This sparked numerous riots across the US in the late 40s and early 50s which further pushed the ghettos into ruin. The country also increasingly deregulated business and allowed essentially monopolies to form in many industries enriching fewer and fewer and made more poor. the AI report (On the American Situation) condemned the Ghetto System while also publishing a report supposedly made a few years after Long's 1940 disappearance by a NYT reporter who wanted to remain nameless. The report detailed a large and winding conspiracy to vanish away Long, dispose of him and put General Moseley in power backed by a shadowy cabal of business leaders. The Report, while praised for its condemnation of systemic racism in the Union drew harsh critics from across America and Europe for propagating the "Business Plot" conspiracy theory. The backlash got so intense that AI released a statement shortly after apologizing to the American Government, the Long family and the American people for opening old wounds. They retracted the report and re-released it without the NYT article. However Sir Stanley still held by the AI's first report until his dying day.

    AUS troops in a trench on the outskirts of Washington D.C during Operation: Columbia

    Operation: Columbia commonly known as the "Liberation of Washington D.C" by most of the International community was a large scale offensive spearheaded by geneal George Patton in an attempt to liberate the city but also drive up the coastline with intentions of cutting off the CSA from any support from the International the battle lasted a year an a half which hostes some of the most brutal fighting in the war with some 1.1 million AUS troops a large number of foreign troops, and pro-aus militas (mainly the KKK, Minutemen, and Silver Legion) vs a force of only 650,000 CSA troops, Red Guardsmen, and International volunteers (mainly French) despite bitter resistance from the CSA with brutal house to house fighting and constant artillery and air bombarments from both sides the AUS ultimately prevailed but at the cost of 160,00 casualties some militias retaliated to the Syndies fierce resistance by gathering and eventually massacuring syndicalist politicans and sympathisers members of the Silver Legion would often take Black P.O.W's and lynch them but some were halted by AUS troops following the battle the AUS was sucessful in cutting off the CSA from it's coastline and in a nik of time as the 2nd weltkreig came to a close europe divided between the International and Russia the offensive along with Canada's intervention would be the final nail to the coffin as the CSA unconditional surrendered on christmas day in 1948 the CSA's defeat was devastaing blow to the International (especially in the Americas) and Huey Long would consolidate his power and thwarted off 2 attempted coups against him
