The year is 2055, more than thirty years after the events of Zero Hour, Earth suffers a catastrophic collision with meteorites. The world is thrown into turmoil as large swathes of land are annihilated. Four factions, the ADF (Asian Democratic Federation), WEA (West European Alliance), WLF (World Liberation Front), and AC (American Confederacy) are at war for control of the remaining already harder to find resources as well as the preservation of their nations and geopolitical interests. Welcome to Deep Impact.
While the United Asian Nations' military force may not be as advanced technologically as its American Confederacy and Western European Alliance counterparts, the simplicity of tried and tested machines ensures the reliable delivery of death and destruction to the UAN's foes. The new V5 rocket and its launcher carry on this tradition of simplicity and replace the smaller V3 design. The V5 is an evolution of the notorious TOPOL ICBMs that has been adapted for smaller theaters of operation. Improved engines and smaller fuel bays have traded the intercontinental range for speed and the addition of even more high explosives in the warhead, bringing the TNT equivalent to 2.5 tons, more than enough to level all but the most fortified of structures and easily besting the power of its WEA and AC equivalents. Furthermore, intelligence gathered suggests the existence of another warhead to be used only in exceptional situations. Like any artillery piece, expect this vehicle to be protected by some form of escort as this heavy weapon crawls rather than sprints.
