From Russia with love
The darkness has just fallen upon earth. Only the sounds of trucks passing by were giving away Russian presence in the area. It was 09:24pm the 18th September around NUSSR and Persian Empire border. Soldier Svorniov was mounting in one of those APCs. In a few minutes, he will be a part of the massive Soviet onslaught, one of the millions that will attack this day. At his shoulder, the heavy assault rifle was bouncing alongside him. The AK-308 was the newest produce of NUSSR industry. The gun was shooting light speed bullets and a mini-rocket launcher was just under the barrel. Inside it was a new rocket, an Armor Piercing one. One of these things was able to cut through 1000 mm of cement and then explodes in a hundred of shrapnel pieces spreading everywhere in a circle of 50 meter wide. This rifle was one of the best in the world.
The APC backdoor was closed and in speakers, the voice of the comrade chairman Vladimir Illiouchine spoke:
“Comrades of NUSSR, brothers and sisters of all Russia, fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, we, as I speak, are officially at war with the New Persian Empire. In the valley, shells started to fly by and exploded in massive fireballs all around. This is needed, these evil capitalist and fascist have refused the freedom of the NUSSR, and even more their leaders are threatening and oppressing their own people. This must stop. I ask to all of you, great soldiers, to fight, to fight to your last blood, you have to avenge and to raise Russia. On beaches, on sea, in land, we will fight with guns and armors. Our planes and our artillery are, as I speak, pounding enemy positions, we are destroying the enemy air forces in their bases, and we are destroying their bunkers in the deep of the mountains. Soon enough, our tanks, the spearhead of the Red Army, will rush in Persia; nothing should stay in their paths. Victory is our goal and nothing should stop us. We are united for this, we have been prepared for this, we will do this, the worker in his factories, the farmer in his kolkhozes, the soldier is only their sons. And he is a infinitesimal part of the Red Army but with his brothers and sisters, he is forming a new Red Army. Like was the Red Army of Trotsky, of Stalin and Zhukov, our Army should get through all of this, invincible.
And now I’m addressing to you, you the youngest, you the new blood of Russia, you the next-generation, elders are fighting for your freedom, for your happy world. Thanks him, him your older brother, or your father who are far away, they are fighting for you, they are fighting for an ideal, a communist one. Respect and honor them as you own respect to me, they are equals to me, they are fighting alongside me for Communism and for the Motherland! They are doing the greatest work for Russia; they are doing the Great Patriotic War! They are part of your history and soon be legend.
But the woman next to you is weeping, she shouldn’t. Her husband is also fighting for her, her fiancé or her brother, is on the line, ready, weapons at his hand. She should be proud of him, he is a Great Russian, he stands alongside his brothers, his brothers of arms but soon of tears and blood. War is horrible but in these dark days, it is needed to preserve peace, prosperity and communism in the New Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. SHE SHOULD STAND FOREVER!”
The Armored Personal Carrier is now moving, the column is formed and T-2000 are slowly advancing. Helicopters fly low above the ground and start shooting. The artillery is still shooting and the sounds of war are spreading all across the Black Sea to the Aral one. The division is now in sight of his objective: a small exit in the valley commanding access to Iran. Heavy tanks are now shooting and anti-mines vehicle are advancing just before them.
Svorniov and his squad mates jumped out of the APC and started to walk toward the unknown, toward Persia…
SUMMARY OF NUSSR INVASION:
From D-Day to D-Day+1
-Caucasus advance is working on steadily. Bombardments were effective in reducing enemy morals, air forces and strongholds.
-Enemy garrison in Istanbul is surrendering. NUSSR is mainly controlling eastern part of it and have just captured two warships.
-Iran Front is the hardest one to break through, our forces are lighter and the enemy was ready for the assault. A whole new enemy armored army is counter-attacking around Samarqand. But without fuel, they won’t go far and our air force will reduce them to pieces.
-On sea, our Black Sea fleet has struck dead the Persian one and our battleships are shelling Istanbul and enemy lines in Caucasus.
-Our Air Force has attacked by surprise and destroyed 87% of enemy aircrafts on airfields. Persia won’t be able to get air supremacy.
