A RA2 story

Recommended Posts

This first bit is an introduction for those who do not know much about the RA universe:

Glossary

Tesla Coil – fires a powerful electrical charge at targets. It is a defensive weapon used by the Soviets, its main disadvantage is that it uses up large amounts of electricity

Tesla troops – infantry equivalent to the Tesla Coil not quite as powerful but faster firing they can also power up a Tesla Coil with their weapons if the power is down

Psychic Beacon – Soviet mind control device developed by Yuri

Nighthawk transport – a transport helicopter most frequently used in covert operations, used by the Americans

Chronosphere – American teleportation device used frequently throughout both Soviet wars

Iron Curtain – Soviet temporary invulnerability device used frequently throughout both Soviet wars

History

In 1924, shortly after Lenin's death, Joseph Stalin secures his position as despot of the communistic USSR. During the next thirty years Stalin virtually conquers the entirety of Asia. The League of Nations, due to its total inability to prevent this conquest, is dismissed and instead a new international commonwealth is created, the United Nations.

In 1950, Stalin decides to follow his dream of a united communistic Eurasia under his command and declares war on the democratic countries that had been united in the League of Nations. Removal of Hitler along with his extremely powerful Nazi-German military causes a severe misbalance of economic and military potentials in Eurasia, allowing Stalin to successfully invade Europe. Meanwhile, the USSR starts researching the Iron Curtain project -- a device that can make objects completely invulnerable for a short period of time. The United States of America join the Alliance and obtain the Chrono technology that Einstein had been working on, which allows the USA to lead the Philadelphia Experiment. During the experiment the US Navy Aldridge destroyer disappears for a period of time and appears again. In order to prevent the USA from researching the Chrono technology further, Stalin takes a decision to attack the American fleet in Pearl-Harbour. A rash escalation of war technology leads to the creation of horrific atomic bombs, advanced Tesla weapons and even more dangerous and mysterious devices.

After a long, harsh war, the Allied Forces manage to defeat the Soviet Union. The Iron Curtain is destroyed, the Soviet army is beaten, and the Allies occupy Soviet soil. The decisive factor that allows the Allies to win the war is constant usage of Einstein's Chronosphere device.

The Allies, victorious in their battles against Joseph Stalin, rebuild their decimated European economy and infrastructure. To oversee the Soviet reconstruction, they have installed their own puppet dictator in the place of Stalin: Premier Alexander Romanov, a descendant of the last Russian Tzar, executed in 1917 after the victory of the Great October Revolution. To the Allied intelligence, Romanov is nothing more than a consummate politician and the harmless leader of the World Socialist Alliance, an innocuous organization that gives financial aid to developing countries. No one has ever thought that Romanov can be a threat for the newly established peace.

While the United States treat the Soviet Union like an ally, Romanov renews researching Psi technology started by Stalin, which should allow specially trained Psi Corps troopers to control human minds. Romanov assigns the most promising Psi Corps trooper Yuri, who has been one of Stalin's assistants a long time ago, as his first advisor. Yuri uses his abilities to neutralize US intelligence operatives in the USSR or to "convince" them to the Soviet cause. Later he invents the Psychic Beacon -- a device that allows controlling minds of all the humans within its range.

Romanov orders to rebuild the Iron Curtain in order for his triumph to be complete. Unbeknownst to his Allied puppeteers, Romanov had been mobilizing the World Socialist Alliance into a giant military machine for years and when a civil war breaks out in Mexico, Romanov makes his move. While Yuri uses his psychic power to disable the US nuclear arsenal, Soviet forces invade the territory of the United States.

Main characters and people of mention

Tanya Adams – American expert in covert operations

Commander Richard Stewart – Main American commander is well known for saving most of the American people from Yuri’s Psychic Beacons

Yuri – Soviet mind control expert, the trainer of the Psi core and the inventor of the Psychic Beacon

Premier Romanov – leader of the Soviet Union

President Regan – leader of the USA

Absolute M.A.D.ness

Commander Stewart was sitting in a video conference chamber with Tanya Adams, Eva the lieutenant assigned to his command and the president. Ever since he’d saved him and General Carvel as well as most of the populace from Yuri’s Psychic Beacons he had been his top general. That was why he was here now. Suddenly the screens spluttered to life and the leaders of Britain, France and Germany appeared, he had been told their names but he’d forgotten them already.

The president greeted them and said “The Soviets will invade you before too long. They will not rest until all the democratic states in the world are destroyed. You must help us now while you have the chance”.

The French president replied “But you must realise however that to us this is happening a long way away. It might not be in the public interest to go to war just because you ask us” his words weighted by his Gaulic accent.

“It’ll be on your own doorstep in no time, I think war will be in the public interest then don’t you” he replied barely concealing his anger.

“We are willing to help if the Soviet ICBMs in this region are destroyed” said the German chancellor and brought up a map on the screen.

“Obviously this is how Premier Romanov wants us to act, however we will not move while they are still standing” said the British prime minister.

“This is where you come in,” said the president speaking to Richard. “The British say that they have an aircraft carrier in the Baltic ready to commence bombing once the nukes are out of the way” at this the British prime minister nodded his agreement. “You are to use a cadre of our elite covert operation experts the Navy SEALs. You must destroy the three missile silos here, here and here” pointing in succession at the map. “Tanya will assist you in your mission, keep her alive at all costs”.

“Thank you for your concern sir but I can survive without his help” said Tanya irritably.

Two days passed. Now the commander, Tanya and the twenty elite SEALs under them were on the German-Polish border getting ready for the first attack. The early evening fog clung close to the ground, as if tangled in the dense fir trees that formed a natural camouflage to the missile sites. Nearby a lake stretched from their position to the Soviet base. The plan was this Tanya would swim towards the nearest side of the base and sneak through. She would then destroy the power supply there with the C4 they had been issued with, meaning that the Tesla Coils would go off line through lack of power. Then when the defence was down the SEALs would pour into the base and destroy what was left including the missile silo. The problem was the guards inside the base but Tanya was confident that she could handle them.

Tanya had set off and had slipped into the water, which from where the SEALs were, looked as black as oil. She hardly made a noise or a ripple on the calm surface of the freezing cold lake, which she sped across with the speed and agility of a fish. The SEALs were ready to move as soon as the low humming from the Tesla Coils had stopped. Commander Stewart was grimly determined to fight till the death for his country. His grizzly complexion and the set of his jaw betrayed him to be a veteran of many battles with the Soviets. He had a personal vendetta against the Soviet aggressors. He had a reason to fight. Revenge for his friends and family.

1) Ordos, the discription at the begining is by Westwood I did that to save time I'm to busy posting elsewere.

2) Ordos45, a quote from CoD gave me the idea for it but I thought Frank ment somthing else by it. I'll change it later.

3) Enjoy the rest:

Then the low humming of the Tesla Coils ground to a halt and they advanced, almost shadows within shadows, they moved with predatory stealth towards their target. They reached the entrance to the base and quickly finished of what little resistance there was which hadn’t already fallen to Tanya’s twin Uzis with silencers. Then they set the C4 against the silo and the other buildings around it with an hour to count down till detonation. There was also a motion sensor on it, which meant that if it was handled after setting it would detonate early. An hour was left so as not to give the enemy any knowledge of what was going on. An explosion to early would tell the Soviets that they were under attack.

Tanya said “One down and two to go. The next base is only twenty clicks east of here we should make it there in about the same amount of minutes”.

“Well what are we waiting for lets go” the commander replied. And so they set of into the freezing nights fog.

 When they reached it there was no lake and they were out of ideas. Then they heard footfalls in the snow. Tanya went to investigate and when she came back she reported, ”It’s some commie conscripts, five by the sound of it”.

“This could be just what we need,” replied commander Stewart. “You seven go around that way, you seven go the other and surround their flanks and you six go to block of their retreat and we will take the rear. We want them to surrender if possible.”

Tanya and the commander commenced fire first with the rest following their example. The conscripts tried to shoot back with sporadic fire but with little success. They realised that they were dead men walking so they dropped their weapons and put their hands up.

A few minutes’ later five figures walked past the sentries and into the base. Another five minutes and it was all over, C4 planted and not a single live person left in the base.

After the group had joined together again they checked the map and time.

“We’ve got about twenty minutes till the two we’ve got are destroyed. Our cover will be blown if we stay longer than that,” said Tanya the cold night’s breeze blowing through her hair. “It’ll take us longer than that to reach the next base on foot, but about five minutes away is a Soviet supply point to the base. If I hitch a ride onto the truck we can do what we did first time round.”

“Ok, you go there and we will go and get into position,” said the commander.

Five minutes later a truck drove from the supply point. Ten minutes later and she was within the base. And not long after, a Nighthawk transport helicopter had picked them up and multiple explosions had erupted from the three Soviet bases.  Tanya and Commander Stewart looked out over their handiwork and smiled. To finish off Soviet resistance in the area the RAF launched its Harriers from HMS Ark Royal in the frozen wastes of the Baltic and Europe entered the war on the side of the Americans. But the war was not over yet America was yet to be fully liberated and the Soviets still had control of most of the globe.

A few days later commander Stewart was resting in his quarters in Paris where he had been given time off when the call came through that Soviet Tesla troops had paradropped in and were heading for the Eiffel Tower. It was believed that they were aiming to turn it into a giant Tesla Coil with their weapons. This would devastate the city if it succeeded and so a commander’s work never done he leapt up from his chair and headed outside, he commandeered a car and drove into the city.

After about 3 minutes the car reached a place about 4 quartals from the Eifel tower. The buildings were burning and Stewart saw many people lying dead on the ground with pale blue expresions on their faces - they were probably killed with electricity. Stewart realised that he was on his own as the police forces of Paris had now chance against the trained tesla troopers. The french reinforcements could arrive only in a few hours and the tesla troopers were already charging the tower... then Stewart saw a tesla trooper charging his Tesla claw, Stewart ducked under the car and drew his crysknive out of his pocked - he was crazy about dune, he also drew a shiny desert eagle pistol and targeted it straight on troopers head. Hefired ten shots but it gave no effect because T-troopers were wearing heavy armor. But then he threw his crysknive straight into T-troopers eye.  After a few seconds in the sky he saw Tanya paradroping from the plane... ;D

Wow and to think I thought they were private. Oh well, they are way out of context anyways. And I'm not going to post some of your IM's because that is OFFTOPIC.
