On December 23rd, 2017, the invasion of "Gloria", an interdimensional1 union bent on conquering any enemies it comes across, had begun. Gloria is an extremely advanced supernation, taking up almost all of their entire planet. They possess technology, both military and civilian, that is much more advanced than anything humanity is currently capable of producing. They have taken and adapted human military technology to fit their own needs on earth, as some of their technology would not cooperate in earths atmosphere.


Those are only the documented technologies that military personnel have been able to capture. Other technologies include invisibility modules, teleportation devices, space combat vessels, space combat suits, and the like. The invasion began in southern Ireland.

Irish military personnel proved incapable of stopping the threat. News reports and social media outcry from the inhabitants of the country described "Canine men with skull faces" invading the island, most described to be wearing black combat uniforms similar to what a US Soldier would wear. Irish military personnel had been severely wounded by the enemy's tactics and sheer numbers. Irish soldiers described them as "Coming out of nowhere".

It was not long before the entire island of Ireland had surrendered due to an overwhelming surge of force. Ireland is currently a staging area for Gloria as the war still continues, with few surviving in its pockets of free territory.

The Glorian invasion soon spread to the United Kingdom. This was England's first major call to arms since the second world war. English military personnel backed by Europe stationed US Military personnel had set up artillery support on the coasts of the islands. The beaches were stormed by CH-48's and men in ES2's. The beaches were abandoned due to the thousands of Glorian military personnel invading. All efforts of the US Military and the British Army were unsuccessful. They had been pushed back together by an unstoppable force that could only be described as "Supernatural". However, a Glorian special forces operator had been captured soon after the battle spread to the rest of England.

The Glorian operator provided little to no information about the current situation, who the chancellor was, or what was going on within the world he had come from.

After the incident, the enemy forces began closing in even further on the UK, completely surrounding it. All but a small city named Peterborough. American special forces were being armed with recovered ES2's to help buy the United States enough time to find a solution to the sudden advancing Glorian lines. Their efforts were successful, known as Operation Grey Victory, but their success came at the cost of over 1,600 US and British Military personnel.

Other strategies have included carpet bombings and surgical strike teams being deployed in Gloria occupied areas to eliminate high profile targets. These strategies have controversial efficiency.


Soon after Europe (other than the UK) had fallen, Gloria had started to hit heads with an even larger superpower. Russia. After modifying multiple technologies (F35's, Blackhawk helicopters, M1 Abrams) to adapt to shortages of their own units, they began their invasion.

The invasion began in West Russia, within hours the invading force had pushed to Moscow.
