Winter Invades Belgium

Winter invades Belgium

The first step of General Winter-Lorenz's campaign to topple France was a three-pronged invasion through Belgium.

In the aftermath of Impact, the Low Countries- Belgium and the Netherlands- nearly collapsed, especially as flooding ruined the coastlines and many of their cities. Their neighbours moved in to restore order and provide aid; Belgium became the care of France, whilst the Germans took care of the Netherlands. By 2018 these regions were still under the French and German administrations, and were home to numerous military bases. Liege, a city in eastern Belgium, had been especially fortified- since operating as a fortress was a heritage of the city. Nonetheless, this left the French with a long border with Germany all the way up to the sea.

Thus, Winter's invasion of Belgium would be from both Germany and the Netherlands. Her three army groups would advance from the north and east; Red attacking through Flanders, Black attacking Brussels itself, whilst Gold punched through Liege and cut Brussels off from France.

Turning Points

Protect the 1re Armée Francaise.

Advice

Actor Dialogue
Marianne2.png?raw=1 "This region is basically like a big ring of rivers surrounding relatively flat, open land. The enemy's armies will be advantaged in the open, so we should try to fight them only from a defensive point. Remember, the UN's tanks and AC Suits don’t need bridges to cross water quickly. We can lay some ambushes in the forests on the routes to Brussels, but these forces run the risk of being intercepted and surrounded. The cities of Antwerp, Liege and Namur all possess Sensor Stations, which means defending and holding them helps us to coordinate our defense."
Alphonse3.png?raw=1 "The enemy forces are likely to be fast, and are well-led. They will be trying to use their speed to attack isolated forces and pick them out one by one. This foe has a lot of armoured units and AC Suits, which ground forces can struggle to handle."
Minerva%20Linden.png?raw=1 "Our Local Allies are disadvantaged by the fact that the enemy can move faster than they can, and they're somewhat spread out. They also have the disadvantage of having poorer leaders. Our leaders are trained to work on the defense, so they're best kept to cities and forests. From our personal forces, I suggest deploying the Super-Lourds and the Armee d'Italie, as the Dreadnoughts pack a lot of punch and the Armee d'Italie possess terrain experts in the Legionnaires."
Liu%20Lin.png?raw=1 "Juno Winter-Lorenz, huh. Be careful of this one. She favours aggressive offensives, but don't mistake her for being a reckless fool; she's a cunning planner, and her genius for logistics surpasses anyone in Europe. She can not only create offensives, but sustain them. Her strengths lie in being able to organise large forces and demolishing her foes with shocking, overwhelming attacks."
Misato3.png?raw=1 "Evas, Evas… Something tough first of all. A Pointman for sure. The open terrain here really favours Skirmishers and Snipers, too, so I'd suggest at least Yanmei and Hachi. The Vatican Treaty lets us deploy extra Evas here, but I don't think we can spare any. For Superheavies, I'd recommend either Eagle or Wolf, as they're fairly durable units. Go with Wolf if you're looking for quick offense, and Eagle if you want a balanced force."
