20 years of history
The year is 2032, and the world has changed significantly. While technology is basically the same the United States has agreed to allow Japan its own military after nearly 100 years. The cause of the war is relatively easy to understand, but not possible to diffuse. For years, South Korea wanted to rejoin North Korea, however, they could not tolerate the North Korean dictator Sujin Kang. Kang decided to reunify Korea with force, and its ally, China backed them up. The United States was hesitant to enter a war with China, but it was apparent to most of the world that conflict between the nations was quite likely. Shortly after North Korea’s victory, a Chinese fast attack sub destroyed the USS Valley Forge on October 6th, 2032. The sub itself was never identified by the United States, and China denied responsibility for the attack despite clear evidence to the contrary. It wasn’t long before the United States mobilized 3 battle groups, which would dock in Japan, a force capable of projecting American influence into Asia. It’s also rumored that America prepared an Ohio class sub to launch at China. China attempted to negotiate but the United States states would not remove this task force even at the threat of war. China carried out that threat by destroying a United States’ convoy en route to Hawaii. The majority of the action is taking place in Asia, though the Middle East remains a hotspot, as China began to supply terrorists with weapons and even tanks.
