Blue Dawn: Rise of Nationality
Blue Dawn: Rise of Nationality is a mod created to show you guys the conflict in Afghanistan between the Soviets and the Afghans and the conflict in the Balkan in the Yugoslav State and maybe educate you guys in what was going on there.. The thing we want this mod to be focused on is realism and historical events. We researched our intel which we are using by reading loads of stories and articles of the war written by both sides. Also, we will not tolerate any political opinion posted on our forums or mods because this will be punished by a straight ban.
When in the 1970s the Afghan Government which got support of the USSR was in a disaray because the old fashioned tribes in the mountains were having an uprise the Afghan Gov. called for the help of the USSR.
When they called USSR forces for help the Soviet forces had hit heavy enemy contact in the mountains and the Mujahadeen were waging a guerilla war against them. Now the Soviets send a bunch more troops to Afghanistan to counter the rebellion. This escalated in a huge brutal proxy war between the West and the East.
When the people of Yugoslavia became more proud of their nationality a lot of states wanted to break away from the state that had kept them united since Tito. The Yugoslav Army consisted mostly of Serbian and Montegrins so the other people felt opressed as a minority. First Slovenia broke away in a rather peaceful way with only 10 days of war. Then the other states wanted to break away only this didn't go without any resistance. A bloody civil war between many ethnicities and beliefs occured and fueled the hate of each other a lot more.
1st Chechen War:
After the collapes of the Soviet Union in 1991 new states formed out of the terretorry of the former USSR and Chechnya was one of the 15 new countrys to leave the USSR eventhough it wasnt reconized by the majority of countries as a sovering state and still counted under Russian territorry, attempts to seperate from Russia were made and were on the way to sucess with that Plan. Economical cirppeld Russia wasnt to happy with that desicion as the Caucasus as an oil rich area and would have killed the Russian economy which was bad at the times not thinkable for Boris Yelzin who wanted to win the votes as president of Russia. After a failed attempt to bring down Dudayev that ende up with Russian soldiers trying to enforce russian loyal chechens which ended in a failure and on december 1994 the Russian army perpared an invasion that would leave a deep scar in Chechnya for 3 years
2nd Chechen War:
In 1999 after Vladimir Putin became prime minister elected by Yeltzin, the metro bombings took place. Quickly responsible people were found the so called Chechens. After the disaster of the first war for both Chechnya and Russia. Chechnya was heavily isolated and heavily hit by the outcome of the first Chechen war and also the presence of radical islamists in the area made for a dangerous mixture for further attacks. Though the main points for the 2nd war were the Moscow Apartment bombing (belived to be orchestrated by the FSB or radical Chechens, heavily controversial topic) and the attack by the "Islamic Liberation Brigade" on the still Russian province of Dagestan taking place in summer 1999 after these events Vladimir Putin made a quick decision "There is no border with Chechnya".
There has always been a conflict between the Georgians and the minorities. But after the wars of 1992-1993 with Abhkezia the Georgians started having a conflict with the seperatist movement from South Ossetia as well and this one was also supported by the Russian Federation who believed Abhkazia and South Ossetia should be independent states. When in 2008 the Georgian Armed Forces started attacking a big South Ossetian stronghold the Russian Government retaliated and send peacekeepers and combat troops to counter the Georgian advance and keep the peace.
On new years eve 1994 the amored assault on grozny begun meaning the first large operation by russian ground forces. the 131st MRR was part of group North which had to take the Grozny central Railway station alongside a few other locations. As the 131st started to secure the Railway station they got a radio message fromt he chechens saying "Welcome to Hell" and directly after that they got ambushed with small arms fire and rockets. Most vehicles were dstroyed/knocked out during that ambush and a lot of soldiers died. (the man on the picture is Colonel Ivan Savin)
Savin requested back up numerous times but all his calls for help were simply ignored or forgotten because commanders and soldiers were celebrating new years eve. Realizing this he took matters in his own hands and orderd evryone to retreat. On their way they came across a few APC´s that were still functioning, so he orderd to load one full with all the casualties they brought with them (the BTR was loaded with about 40 men) and was told to drive off to saftey, although that didnt happen as they drove in the wrong street and got ambushed. only 13 survived only to be taken prisioner afterwards. The remaning soldiers mounted the other BTR's and in the process they were ambushed agian, this time Savin got injured takeing shrapnel to his eye. He died on January 2nd. For his actions he reecived the title "hero of the Russian federation" VERY late.
Those are radio transmissions from Savin during the battle
