Showdown Over New Shanghai


China. One of the oldest countries on Earth, it had for over three thousand years gone through periods of unification, power and turmoil. In the aftermath of Impact, the nation had shattered between various warlords. Two of the most powerful were Liu Lin and Wu Yuanzhang. Liu controlled the Republic of China, centered in Jinan; Wu Yuanzhang controlled the Shu Empire, centered in Sichuan. In the end, Liu Lin triumphed and Wu Yuanzhang fled the country.

China was unified, but the bad times were not yet over. Over the years, the environment worsened, and by 2008 most of China south of the Chang Jiang was uninhabitable. Rivers and lakes had dried up, forests had died, lands had hardened in the baking sun. Much of China's surviving southern population had fled north, millions dying of starvation and exhaustion. China, desperate to feed and house its people, moved heaven and earth to provide the resources, invading all of its neighbours and establishing a brutally-won hegemony over East Asia. On a small spit of what remained of Jiangsu province- now an island-, the Chinese built a new city- New Shanghai. A floating city that occupied the entirety of Jiangsu island, with skyscrapers that gleamed and shone in the sun, disguising the crushing poverty and human desperation below. It was a city where anything could happen, especially if you were willing to pay- not always money, either.

But China's democratic government soured, its ministers and bureaucrats becoming corrupt. Repeated attacks from Angels and Angelspawn weakened the country, whilst resistance forces in Vietnam, Laos, Burma, India, Thailand, Malaysia and Australia bled the Chinese military white. Its cities are overcrowded and the people are desperate for work, money and food.

China was one of the founding nations of the Federation, but by 2018, it was clear that China was not pulling its weight with its allies. It contributed nothing to the war in Europe or the Pacific.

China, the world saw, was weak.

It was into this gap that Wu Yuanzhang returned at the head of a UN battlefleet and a massive army. It moved up the coast of China, evading many interceptions and patrols through the use of AT-generated storms. By the 31st of October, Wu was ready to land on the beaches and retake his country, to cleanse it of its mistakes and make it strong again.

His first target was the great floating city of New Shanghai.

Actor Dialogue
Marianne2.png?raw=1 "Northern China is a relatively open land, and the path from Jinan to Beijing is very open. The further south you go, however, the rougher the terrain becomes. Jinan is protected by a shield of mountains, and Hefei sits along a crook in the river. New Shanghai, however, is open and exposed to the enemy battlefleet."
Alphonse3.png?raw=1 "We expect the enemy force to be heavy in long ranged attacks. A significant portion of his force is in capital ships, possessing long-range weaponry and powerful gun batteries. Their high armour and dangerous weaponry means that he can deliver powerful offense as well as defense. Prioritise fusion weaponry and other anti-armour weapons."
Minerva%20Linden.png?raw=1 "Our forces might benefit from a heavier focus on defense. Whilst our possessing a Star-Battleship is an advantage the enemy do not have, it isn't invincible."
Liu%20Lin.png?raw=1 "Wu Yuanzhang is an artillerist first and foremost. He knows how to focus an artillery barrage for the best effect, and what he will do is focus his energies on a single target and pound them as hard as possible; most likely this will be the enemy's fulcrum. However, don't think of him as slow, either; Wu can be dynamic and shockingly fast. He'll hit you with an artillery barrage, then swoop you with a lightning-fast raid. Be wary of his main fleet; he's almost certainly going to have it in a tight formation, where each ship can over the other with its autodefenses."
Misato3.png?raw=1 "I know it sounds like I'm encouraging the dumb little shit, but maybe we should bring Ramiel along. According to Shinji it has powerful ranged attacks, and that might be really handy. As for Superheavies… I know, off the wall, right? But why don't we bring the Iron Nelson in? It has heavy armour, and whilst it'll probably not evade many barrages, it has lots of firepower."
