Passing the Mandate


Recommended Posts

The Emperor of the Greater Korean Federation was the sole common point which held the federation together. The different ideologies, combined with the various ethnic groups, meant that if there was no unifying center, the whole system would come crashing down. And crash it did, with the announced execution of the Emperor by Kim Jong Un.

Already, the Japanese-descended Shonan and Yamato people were out of the picture. Following the annexations by the United Federation of the East, there was a mass exodus to Zargathia, which was believed to be the sole nation free of outside influences. This migration stripped Korea of all its military technology developed since its independence from Rebel Army, for the Japanese had been the core of all advanced knowledge that had driven Korea. The sudden fall in manpower and cheap labor also meant that Korea ahd lost its competitive advantages.

Korea in general slowly turned a carbon copy of the stagnating Democratic People's Republic of Korea that had existed in the past. The soceity was highly militarized, rationing of materials was started, and a personality cult surrounding Kim Jong Un was attempted. All this turned many against the Premier, and when the nuclear bombs fell, the dissent hit a critical point.

In the north, The masses who had been suffering rose up, with the wish for integration into Zargathia. Thousands of Korean-Zargathians had been a major factor in this, as the wealth built up allowed them to win the hearts of the Chosun people. The existence of an "Other Korea" in Zargathia was the main point through which the rebels gathered into a rough organization advocating Korea's joining Zargathia. Meanwhile, it was in Daehan that the greatest political change happened. Besides the secession, a reactionary movement calling for the restoration of the old Korean Empire had become the most influential group. This group, spiteful of both the traitorous Kim Family of Shilla (protected by Rebel Army, and wanted dead by almost all Koreans) and Zargathia. This group was bent on destroying both Kim and the rebels in its goal of reestablishing the true Korean Empire, Daehan Jeguk.

In the midst of this, Kim was besieged all around, facing the rebels to the north, Daehan to the south, constant bombing from the coalition, and an amphibious assault on Mokpo. THe only trump card he had was his nuclear arsenal, which he would use if necessary.....

The stage was set for a new Mandate over the Bright Kingdom.

UFE Modular UAVs were now supplemented by high altitude derigible UAVs equipped with high output DEW for protections and powerful concentrated ground penetrating radar and synthetic aperture radars to build a picture further of the GKF lines in a way that the satellites couldn't hope to do. With the increasing concentration of assets over the Penninsula, the UFE was building a strike map specifically concentrated on hitting the Kim Family's missile sites and command and control, with ground defenses being effectively suppressed and drawn out by other groups.

B-10s, B-9 Mk IIIs, and F-3s were flying now near round the clock bombing missions using larger munitions capable of cave cavitation and deep penetrating strikes. F-1s and F-2s provided electronic attack, air superiority, and air defense suppression operations for the strikers to continue their campaign.

Though the nuclear blast had had an effect on part of the line of the Amphibious Assault, but the UFE landings were not stopped entirely. Battleship guns hit enemy positions mapped out by overhead survelliance, and ENBC shielded mechanized units were moving through the massive open path which the 10 kiloton bomb had cleared. While 2300 troops died in the explosion, with another 800 severely injured, this did not signficantly hamper the UFE advance, but rather had made it in a way, ironically easier. Further troops came ashore at multiple points along the areas outskirting Pyongyang. Mechanized amphibious combat brigades were given air cover not just from the naval shelling but from NLOS-LS II fire support systems which kept missiles loitering over the target space to engage enemy entrenched positions as they opened up.

The fight for Pyongyang would be a brutal siege. Coalition air support and rail gun fire would bombard hold outs. As NLOS-C 155s and NLOS-Ms came ashore these would also increasingly participate the in attack. Fury Super MBTs lead the coalition troops as they advanced through the city. Surrounding the SMBTs were active defense support units, and rear repair units in the offchance the Koreans had something that could stand head on against the tanks. VTOL UCAV fire scouts would navigate the narrow passages of urban streets to draw out enemy armor and artillery positions and engage them. ENBC gear and Anti-radiation poisoning first aid had been distributed among all units, and troops were advised to stay within fortified armored convoys as much as possible.

When reaching the first subway stop, robotic combat units were dispatched. UCGVs and UGV-EODS would be the first to go in there. Attached to these companies were ENBC support platoons to sniff out and disable any chemical, electromagnetic, biological, or nuclear weapons, though the last was the only likely to have a major effect.

UAVs overhead provided high frequency SAR coverage to avoid ambush, while electronic jammers would be used to help defend against IEDs. VTOL evac units were pre positioned to begin fast evacuations if vehicles were damaged.

In the open terrain around the city, the 3rd PLA-Amphibious Forces Armor Combat Brigade Team would advance ashore from the North with the 8th PLA-Amphibious Forces Stryker II Combat Brigade Team advancing behind it. While in the South the PLA 19th Armor Cavalry Brigade would begin its flanking maneuver to completely surround the city. As they were advancing in relatively flat open terrain with currently uncontested air superiority, they would make use of full speed and shock, along with integrated overhead ISR provided by UCAVs and combat aircraft.

The 4th PLA-Amphibious Forces Infantry Division meanwhile would secure the rear, and setup sites for the PLA 86th Artillery Battalion and 44th Artillery Battalion to begin operations

OOC: Will post more detail when they are engaged.


Meanwhile, the UFE had decided to make some contact with the Daehan forces if for no other reason than to help take out Kim Jung Un's larger armed force. A private transmission was sent to them requesting they send representatives to the UFE, where it was considered more secure than Daehan's territory.

Land was in sight now for the first wave. “Seal up!” The call was broadcast over all their headsets. All the soldiers sealed up their NBC gear, tucked underneath their body armor. Hot? Yes. Stuffy? Yes. Heavy? Yes. But it sure as hell beat dying from radiation poisoning. Intelligence had shown that Mokpo was relatively radiation-free, for the moment, but as the invasion progressed inland, it would be done almost exclusively with vehicles. Radiation levels there were too high for NBC suits alone.

The crack of rifle fire shattered the relative silence of the trip towards shore. Tanner poked his head over the edge of his hovercraft to see the lead inflatable taking intermittent fire from the beach. Soon each of the craft was taking fire. The Imperial troops barely responded as their craft kept pushing forward, they merely hunkered down as far as they could.

The fire got heavier as they passed through the small channel separating Maewol-ri and a small island just outside of the Mokpo Airport. The drivers of the hovercraft and semi-rigids increased their speed as much as possible. The hovercraft and semi-rigids beached on a small island just to the west of the airport, on the south side near the Mokpo docks.

The fire increased as the troops dislodged from their boats. Rifle fire cackled at them from the near tree line. Soldiers found what cover they could on the beach, though there wasn’t much. SSgt. Tanner himself pressed himself behind his light tank and began following it towards the tree line. The other vehicles began providing cover for the troops as they advanced inland. They knew this was just the first step… the real test would be crossing the six lane highway over a small channel that would lead them right to the airport.

The nuclear barrage that the coalition had launched resulted in a hell on earth. While the rest of Korea was spared, massive amount of fallout covered the mountainous regions of the northeastern Korea.


While tens of thousands of people had died in the blasts, most had already escaped into the various bunkers throughout the country. Using the underground connections to the Zargathian border, a mass refugee situation would soon be facing the Queendom, as hundreds of thousands of Koreans spilled across into Manchuria. Most likely something some nations would not welcome, as demographics would be highly affected.

Southwestern Korea

The GKR forces had lost a great chance to destroy the PI troops attempting the assualt. The geography was such that if enough troops had been stationed in the islands, the muddy beach would have been the perfect death trap. However, Kim had too many fronts to deal with, so he had only 50,000 in South Jeolla.

This did not mean the region was not completely defenseless. The city itself had 5,000 defenders, mostly snipers and miners, whose main job was to drag down the invaders while the rest of the troops went on forming a defense line along the Yeongsan river and the mountains to the north and east. The West Sea Highway would be unusable, having been mined heavily.

OOC: Will add the Nampo front upon the final result of the nuclear weapons used in the sea to the west.
