The Interplanetary War was a large war between the United Nations, Koslovics, Friedens and a number of other National Governments.[1]

Contents

Background

As overpopulation and unrest mounted on Earth, a number of new political movements were formed, including the Koslovics and the Jovian Frieden movement (which attacked the United Nations Colonial advisers on Io, one of the moons of Jupiter), and UN-sponsored military forces began a pattern of massive buildups which culminated with the Interplanetary War. After a successful Marine attack on Mars, recruitment drives and propaganda tactics strongly bolstered UNSC forces.[2]

Timeline

The following are the key events of the Interplanetary War. There were probably additional conflicts all around the Solar System and on Earth, but for the most part, the conflict was centered around the UN, Koslovics and Frieden forces.

2160

  • March-June.
    • Jovian Moons Campaign-Secessionist forces, mostly Frieden rebels, attack UN Colonial Advisors on Jupiter's moon Io. This leads to several months of fierce fighting between UN forces and Frieden rebels on the moons. Though it was not the first engagement, it was one of the bloodiest, leading other Earth Governments to fight proxy wars off-planet and across the Sol System. This later led to the Rain Forest Wars.

2162

  • The Rain Forest Wars-Heavy armed conflict between UN, Koslovic, and Frieden, erupts in the tropical rain forest area of South America. The clashes resulted from ideological differences and the wish to control important areas of Earth. As the conflict raged, this sparked even more fighting on moons and other planets in the Sol System.

2163

  • Argyre Planitia Campaign-The UN launch various lightning strikes against Koslovic forces in the Argyre Planitia on Mars. This was the first deployment of extra-terrestrial Marines, by the UN. This would later be used as a military doctrine in all situations off-planet, and would mark the start of the UNSC.

2164

  • Recruitment drives and propaganda tactics strongly bolster UN forces. UN forces defeat Koslovic and Frieden forces on Earth, and then begin a systematic and dedicated drive to crush their remnants on the various planets they hold throughout the system. At the conclusion, Frieden and Koslovic forces are defeated, in the face of a massive, unified, inspired, and very powerful UN military, now known as the United Nations Space Command.

2170

  • 2170 saw a Unified Earth Government formed in the wake of the conflicts of the 2160s. Now, the victors are forced to deal with a less obvious but equally serious threat: overpopulation and a massive military that has no enemy to fight. In the post-war period there are massive population surges and the overpopulation that, coupled with the destruction and famine bred by the Rain Forest Wars, threatened to destabilize the economy.
