They only await your orders to advance, Your Excellency." "Excellent. For too long have we rested on our laurels, wasting away like the pacifistic dogs we hate with such passion. No longer. To be an Empire requires the conquest of territory; the acquisition of wealth through various means. That which rightfully belongs to the Empire shall indeed be ours. "Execute Operation Lengthy Lightning." --- With that order, the Empire plunged into war. Across the Western coast of Central America, planes lifted off and streaked north. Dozens of ships escorting hundreds of transports steamed North with all speed, carrying the materials and personnel for a full amphibious invasion. Dozens of bombers dropped tons of munitions all over the coastlines. Bunker busting munitions blasted gory holes through defenses long-since mapped from orbit. The aircraft moved in a carefully choreographed weaving pattern specifically crafted to offer constantly changing targets to any ground defenses which managed to track the craft. Combined with flares and spoofing technology, casualties were well below the projected result. When the flotilla of ships came into range, batteries of railguns would fire into the hellish destruction, completely bulldozing any and all defenses still remaining. A massive salvo of ship-launched missiles completed the process, launching debris and dirt skyward for hundreds of meters through sheer explosive energy. The cluttered air forced aircraft to stay-clear for quite some time, giving the landing-force an opportunity to assault the beaches without fear of reprisal from above. No less than 20,000 soldiers stormed the beaches in the initial wave, one of the most massive landings in military history. Ship-based artillery pounded the rubble of the coastal defenses, forcing any surviving combat personnel to hunker down lest they be torn to ribbons. A small beach-head had been seized, a scant few miles outside of Cabo San Lucas.
