Project Firefox is set in the Eritrean–Ethiopian War of 1998 to 2000. It will add 2 new factions, Ethopia and Eritrea, lots of new units, new missions and many other features.
The Eritrean–Ethiopian War took place from May 1998 to June 2000 between Ethiopia and Eritrea, forming one of the conflicts in the Horn of Africa. Eritrea and Ethiopia—two of the world's poorest countries—spent hundreds of millions of dollars on the war,and suffered tens of thousands of casualties as a direct consequence of the conflict, which resulted in minor border changes. According to a ruling by an international commission in The Hague,
Eritrea broke international law and triggered the war by invading
Ethiopia. At the end of the war Ethiopia held all of the disputed territory and had advanced into Eritrea. After the war ended, the Eritrea–Ethiopia Boundary Commission, a body founded by the UN, established that Badme, the disputed territory at the heart of the conflict, belongs to Eritrea.
On 13 May 1998 Ethiopia, in what Eritrean radio described as a "total
war" policy, mobilized its forces for a full assault against Eritrea. The Claims Commission found that this was in essence an affirmation of
the existence of a state of war between belligerents, not a declaration
of war, and that Ethiopia also notified the United Nations Security
Council, as required under Article 51 of the UN Charter.
The fighting quickly escalated to exchanges of artillery and tank fire,
leading to four weeks of intense fighting. Ground troops fought on three
fronts. On 5 June 1998, the Ethiopians launched air attacks on the airport in Asmara and the Eritreans retaliated by attacking the airport of Mekele. These raids caused civilian casualties and deaths on both sides of the border.
