For the past 5 years, a nearly endless war has been raging across eastern Europe. Belarus and Russia have been devastating and crushing their neighbors, and the other nations move to protect their own borders. The EU mobilized and has invaded former Estonia and Latvia in an attempt to restore sovereignty to these Baltic States. Almost 8 million have died in this war, and the body count will just keep rising. With no end in sight, and the U.S. crumbling under economic, social and political collapse, there can be no definite winner. With no country willing to use nuclear weapons on their home continent, and no country willing to ask for peace...this war will only worsen.
Meanwhile....5800 miles south, the nation of South Africa has rapidly developed from a second-rate country to a major power. They've become the 8th most advanced country in the world, and have captured Zimbabwe, Namibia, and nearly a third of Nigeria. With a military matching most European countries, and a powerful economy, they are the strongest country in Africa. French naval vessels attempted a close inshore recon of the coast, but were chased away by SADF naval vessels. This caused both the EU and South Africans to become wary of eachother...
Greater South African Empire:Advanced vehicles, but is not always numerically superior. They are high in morale, and have a distinct tech advantage over enemies.
European Union:Large forces, advanced tech. But the diverse make-up of forces causes.....language issues. And long-standing cultural feuds still cause internal tension.
Russian Federation:Slowly pushing into Europe. They have recently captured Georgia and it's associated oil fields. Azerbaijan will soon fall, and it has taken over several of the Baltic states and parts of Belarus, Ukraine, and Poland.
Northern African Alliance:Outgunned, but very certainly not outnumbered. These countries have rallied to stop the South Africans. However it will not be an easy task......not at all.......
Unit Command:GMT Storm Hunter, Rooikat 120MGS
Background:South African soldier that has been in on this war from its inception. Showing great skill as an individual tank commander, he was promoted to Gunnery Sergeant four months ago. With a massive offensive planned into South Africa's treacherous ally, Botswana, he will have his hands full.
Vehicles And Equipment:You ain't fighting any war without your gear, soldier!
Vehicles may be available only to certain countries, SA is for South African available, RF is for Russian Federation available, EU is for European Union available, and NA is for the North African Alliance. Pick two vehicles, one for you, and one as your “wingman” vehicle. Some vehicles may come in pairs. Regardless, pick two types of vehicle.

"Take up your sword, the sword of the brave
You fight for legion you fight to the grave,
For death and for glory your spirit won't die,
Legions of steel to battle you cry,
Hail to the heroes stand to the last!"
