The UAC, The Union of Anti-Communists in its official title, is an Alliance based paramilitary international organization dedicated to the destruction and erasure of Communism and its influence in the world, with its current headquarters in London. Making use of upgraded weaponry from the past decade coupled with new developments from the UAC's own science divisions, the UAC is prepared and well supported with its goals, although there are hints of something much darker going on within their ranks, and the regions that are lousy with them.

Red Dawn Rising
“Part of the American dream is to live long and die young. Only those Americans who are willing to die for their country are fit to live.”
- -General MacArthur in a rallying speech to the newly formed UAC, 1934.
The fall of the continental United States to the tide of Communism was perhaps one of the most important events in the history of the early 20th century, for better or for worse. The effects of such a monumental change on the world stage, perhaps only challenged by the rise of the Fascist Alliance of Free States or the rippling effects of the First World War, have created many wondrous, and often destructive, linked events or organizations to rise within its wake. It was from one of these political ripples that the Union of Anti-Communists arose from the ashes.
In 1933, General Douglas MacArthur, after a failed putsch and the following American Civil War between the Whites and the Reds, fled with his White army to the island nation of Cuba, accompanied by thousands of scared civilians, American Fascists and other white supremacy groups that were no longer welcomed in the newly formed UASR, such as the Second Klan, the Silver Shirts and the Sons of Liberty. While President MacArthur’s control over Cuba and Puerto Rico was set with help of his loyal soldiers, coupled with help from the sympathetic Leese and the British Royal Navy, the General knew that he needed to form a cohesive and structured defence group, an organization along the lines of Leese’s Black Watch, that could help defend the US remnants in case of a Communist invasion. So, within a couple of years after their exodus to Cuba, the Union of Anti-Communists, or the American Anti-Communist League as it was known before 1939, was formed.
Officially, from their headquarters in Havana, the AACL pledged to defend the shores of Cuba from Communist attacks and support the republican government as it entrenched itself even deeper into their Caribbean empire. Unofficially, the group acted akin to a secret police, rooting out any suspected Communist sympathizers and spies that would see MacArthur fall like DC, and to detain them at their secondary, unofficial headquarters located in the Guantanamo bay region, where the first advances into the infamous PHS technology were made in the late 1950’s.
Many of the members of the AACL were made up of average Americans, loyal capitalists who had fled the march of the Red Horde, who were given basic military training and surplus weapons that the American White Army found to be outdated for their use, as well as funding directly from the central government. Other members had already been apart of previous paramilitary or military trained militias, so they often rose to a position of command within the fledgling organization. Loyal, brave and now with limited military training and support, the AACL portrayed themselves as one of the last bastions of a free America, defenders of the sacred US constitution, and the enemy of Communists everywhere.
The AACL soon became demonized by the UASR, as many of the things that the AACL stood for was both against the UASR's Communist rhetoric, and as some pointed out, the AACL was even more extreme than that of the ‘regressive’ conservatives that had plagued Congress and the previous American Government since the end of the First Great War. Many in the AACL declared any form of social welfare as an obvious Communist ploy in order to overthrow President MacArthur, and many of the high ranking members of the AACL urged MacArthur to form even closer ties with the forming Alliance in Europe. Many in the USAR, and later the International, found their hardline Conservative views as repulsive when compared to the blossoming liberties that the Comintern boasted, to say nothing of their support for the abolished Jim Crow Laws. The AACL stated that they championed the new American-Cuban middle class, embedding themselves into the very narrative of the nation, while policing what would have developed into an underclass of Socialist poison, if you listened to the popular rhetoric that they used. Posters and propaganda declaring American superiority rained over the island nation, often declaring that the Communist serpent would be defeated off the back of the likes of the AACL.
Many UASR, and a few of MacArthur’s government, believed the AACL to be little more than a poor excuse for a joke, a leftover remnant from a metaphorical dark age in American History. And maybe, if the AACL stayed in Cuba and Puerto Rico, they might have been on to something with that assumption. However, it wasn’t just in Cuba that Anti-Communist movements began to form. Over in the United Kingdom, a similar organization began to form, one that would help change the AACL forever.
London Calling Havana
“Communism, my fellow citizens, is the first refuge of incompetence and the first step on the road to ruin. We must not allow any Communist to corrupt our Empire, at any cost.”
- -Aaron Ford Roman, founder of the British Anti-Communist Organization, in a speech in 1931.
During the 1920’s and 1930’s, the British Empire went through many changes. The victors of the First World War, the rulers of the largest Empire the world had ever seen, and the birthplace of what would eventually be the Alliance of Free States, it was a melting pot of ideas, both good and bad. It was in this Empire that the British Anti-Communist Organization was formed, on the 25th of June, 1931.
Founded by the young Irishman Aaron Ford Roman, the BACO claimed to do everything that the current British government was too scared to do. As an imperial nation, and one founded on almost a millennium of nigh continuous royalty, the very thought and idea of Communism scared many in the British Isles. Spartacist revolts in the 1920’s in Germany and the growing socialist movement in the once proud USA caused many to fear that the very same could happen to the United Kingdom, which Roman and his inner circle used to gain a measure of control. Based on a pledge to never let the British Isles fall to the Communist Empire, and even making promises of defending the sovereign right of Europe and its colonies to not have Communism forced on them, the BACO caught the interest of the public, and of one Arnold Leese himself, who befriended Roman on his way to becoming Prime Minister.
Many BACO regional Headquarters were established in the poor, run down regions of London, Manchester, Birmingham and Liverpool, with the intent of rooting out Communist infiltrators and sympathisers from the British shores. While many members of the BACO were just simple militiamen that had no formal military training, Roman was smart enough to appeal to veterans of the Great War, claiming that their blood in the Trenches would have been worth nothing if Communism ever came to power in the UK, a line that many believed in his powerful rhetoric.
When America fell to Communism off the back of MacArthur’s failed putsch, Roman and the BACO were the first to cry out to help the fallen General. When Leese came to power in 1933, the BACO swore allegiance to the new fascist leader, and petitioned to be allowed to support the Cuban based American Remnants. Roman was very interested with the developments in Cuba, as he saw potential, like-minded individuals that could be used to further the goals and campaigns of the BACO, in their never-ending fight against Communism.
Leese agreed with Roman, and arranged for him and several high-ranking BACO members to go along with a diplomatic party to Cuba in the spring of 1934, in order to properly show how much the British Empire took the plight of the Americans seriously. In a now famous picture, often used by many in the Alliance and UAC to show their unity, Roman and MacArthur shook hands following Roman's private meeting with the President. A few months later, MacArthur announced the plans to form the American Anti-Communist League.
Meanwhile, in the UK, the methods of the BACO began to grow more extreme, as Leese’s fascist rhetoric began to seep into BACO’s high command. Government funds and even surplus weapons began to find their way to Roman, in a situation that was now beginning to mimic that of the rise of the AACL in Cuba. Over the next few years, the BACO and the AACL grew closer as techniques and even new technology developed by the two groups were shared. By 1938, primitive machines that would one day be the K-9 drones could be occasionally seen on the streets of London and Havana, although they lacked the sophistication of the later models, and every new report from Guantanamo about the interrogation system and the methods that would become PHS always ended up Roman’s hands in little over a week of being written. MacArthur and Roman kept up a private correspondence, discussing new methods for the two groups, and collaborating on their views of how to combat the Communist menace. While the details of these letters are known only by a handful of people on the planet, the one thing that can be gathered from them, is what happened in 1939.
In 1939, Roman, MacArthur and several high ranking members of both the BACO and the AACL, met in a conference hall in the Dutch capital of Amsterdam.It was a monumental conference, for multiple reasons. Firstly, it was the first time that MacArthur had left Cuba since 1933, and such a meeting, many in the forming Alliance would argue, could potentially change the game in the brewing war, depending on the outcome.
Little over four hours after arriving at the conference hall, Roman and MacArthur declared that the BACO and AACL would benefit more, and be a greater weapon against Communism, if they joined as one large supergroup, now named as the Union of Anti-Communists. They pledged to destroy Communism, with MacArthur as the supreme head of the UAC and direct leader of the Cuban branch, and Roman being his second-in-command, and direct head of the United Kingdom Branch. The paramilitary forces of both groups were merged into the UAC Defense Forces, with the general idea to be judge, jury and executioner to Communists, although whether they meant that literally or figuratively would not become clear until the mid to late 1960s, when Roman succeeded MacArthur.
The Cuban Senate and Leese’s Britain applauded the pro-active actions of the new UAC in the war on Communism, and funding, weapons and training increased, as the two governments believed that the likes of the UAC could be a lynchpin in the upcoming war against the International Comintern. Public support for the UAC only continued to grow, flooding their ranks with newly forged Anti-Communists.
With only a little persuasion, Spain, France Atlantis,, Germany and Italy all formed their own branches of the UAC, all answering the Havana and London. Portugal, the Low Countries, and even in the likes of Brazil and the Middle East soon followed with joining the UAC Defense Forces, and multiple smaller Anti-Communist groups that had existed in the era of the AACL and BACO were simply absorbed with a word here and a political assassination there if the leader of such a group decided that the UAC was too regressive for their tastes.
Soon, over the ten years as the world hurtled towards the October 31st, 1950, the UAC only grew in support and power. They, like the rest of the International, were ready for War.
Run, Commie, Run
“Gentlemen, we are now at war with the Communist Empire. I repeat, we are now at war with the Communists. All UAC personnel must report to their nearest headquarters for further instruction from Havana and London. We are at war. We shall destroy Communism. ”
- -The radio broadcast by Aaron Roman on the 31st of October, 1950.
By the mid 1940’s, both President MacArthur and Aaron Roman knew of the looming war that Leese was brewing, and they both increased their efforts with recruiting and building up the UAC in the few years they had left to prepare. MacArthur hoped that the Alliance would crush the UASR and that he would be able to transform the Continental US back to what it was before 1933, but Roman was a lot more cautious and less inclined to think of what he’d do when Leese won, and more on how to make sure Leese would win. Roman organized UAC troops to French Indochina, the Germanic Nations, and of course, all throughout Canada. While Roman would never say it at the time, he had doubts of the Alliance’s power against nations such as the USSR, UASR and even the war torn Communist Chinese. But, despite his doubt, he was determined to make the Comintern bleed for every inch of ground that they’d try to take, and he wanted the UAC to be the ones to do that.
And so, the War went on. As the Alliance swamped Eastern Europe and marched through the American Midwest, the UAC slowly followed, sweeping aside any remaining Communists and taking them to UAC manned detention camps that were constructed in the wake of the Alliance’s blue wave. MacArthur’s Cuban branch assisted in the conquest of the smaller mesoamerican socialist states, and the Asiatic posting of several UAC branches marched into China to assist the failing Kuomintang that had allied with them. Things were going to MacArthur’s plan, but Roman still held his reservations about the war. He knew that, eventually, the reds would fight back.
And fight back they did. By the middle of the war, most theatres of war had turned into massive meat grinders, neither side wishing to cede any ground to their hated of enemies. Atrocities were carried out on a daily basis by Alliance forces, and the UAC were often assistants to these, claiming that they were only do what was needed to root out and destroy Communism once and for all. The UAC was used to police captured territory, freeing up more Alliance troops to fight directly against the International, although Roman was concerned about this. The UAC’s resources, despite being plentiful before the war, had become increasingly stretched by 1953, and Roman found that stretching the UAC’s forces over the multiple theatres of Eastern Europe, South and North America, Africa, the Middle East and Southern China, was leading to an almost complete collapse of the UAC’s ability to properly combat the Communist enemy. Roman faced a tough decision, and one that would change the UAC forever.
He ordered many of the UAC’s troops to retreat to territory held by the Alliance before the war, and this was not done a moment too soon, as a few weeks after this order, Japan and their African Allies rose up to aid the Comintern. MacArthur was outraged by Roman’s orders, and demanded that the UAC’s Central American branches continue fighting against the Communists, who complied, but many of the European and Colonial branches followed Roman’s orders instead. The UAC helped the French forces retreat from Dien Bien Phu in Vietnam as the Communist-supported Vietminh rose up against the Alliance. The Soviet push into Germany was slowed considerably by the entrenched UAC troops, all of whom would gladly give their lives before they saw Berlin fall into Communist hands. The Suez Canal, the vital lifeline for the Alliance saw some of the heaviest UAC defences, as Alliance troops marched to hold off the Communists sweeping through the Middle East, as well as African insurgents that wanted to see the Alliance banished from the Continent forever. What limited counterattacks the UAC could assist the Alliance with helped, but everyone knew that a quick end to the war was all but shattered.
Back home in the British Isles, the Socialist backed Phoenix Front rose to fight Leese’s fascism, and in the second most difficult decision of Roman’s life, ordered the UAC to fire upon, capture and kill his countrymen that he once loved so dearly. Not only would this action put Aaron Roman at the top of the Phoenix Front’s hit list and aggravate the Irish Troubles for years to come, but it also haunted the man, who would later write to MacArthur saying that the Irish situation was his “greatest regret in this life. If only things could have been different.”
In 1956, the writing was on the wall for the Alliance, as Comintern and their allied troops fought tooth and nail against the Fascists and the UAC. By this point, Central America was once again completely lost, and MacArthur was forced to retreat back to Cuba, bunkering down with the UAC and White American Army as the might of the ravaged UASR was about to bear down on them. Still, the UAC would never surrender, even as Havana, London, Paris and Saigon were reinforced and Roman awaited the Communist Juggernaut on England’s shores.
But that day never came. The Comintern wanted peace. They withdrew from the now ravaged pre-war Alliance territories, and both Leese, MacArthur and Roman could breath a collective sigh of relief, knowing that they had been able to escape punishment for what crimes they had unleashed on the world. Roman, almost immediately, set about seeing how the UAC could be improved, and studying their field reports for what could be improved in any future battles with the Communist Superpower. MacArthur was less collected about the situation, cursing the Alliance for not being able to retake the US, and, over a series of meetings with Roman in the following months, almost completely blamed the defeat of the Alliance on Roman’s hesitation to commit UAC forces to the different theatres, and called his withdrawal of UAC troops in certain theatres as almost treasonous. However, neither Leese, nor the people of the Alliance saw Roman as a traitor. To Leese, he was useful, and if not for his assassination in 1957, it is likely Leese could have seen to Roman as a potential successor, while the people lauded the UAC as heroes, complete and true, and in some circles, even stated that they were the only ones that stopped the Comintern from destroying the Alliance once and for all, both of which forced MacArthur to keep his criticism of Roman to his private circles, but it was clear that the two friends would never be on the same terms again.
But, over the next few years, the UAC would see some of the biggest changes yet, it terms of the Thornley administration, and the new leadership of UAC in 1960.
When in London, Do as Roman Does
“Order, Mr. Roman. We are the last vanguard against the destruction of human civilization. We are Order, and Order is the Union of Anti-Communists.”
- -Walter Erin, at Aaron Roman’s acceptance conference for the role of UAC’s High Commander, 1960.
In the aftermath of the Second World War, Roman saw that the UAC needed to vastly change its tactics and form if it was to properly combat the Communist threat, although this was marred by many things, slowing the progress that Roman would have otherwise made. Firstly, the rift that grew between Roman and President MacArthur due to the former’s conduct in WW2 only got larger, as Roman wanted to move away from MacArthur’s plan of building up UAC forces on Cuba, and more on rebuilding a ravished Europe. MacArthur and Roman soon found themselves arguing, and the other regional UAC leaders were starting to worry if they needed to choose a side. However, the assassination of Leese, in 1957, saw the arguments between the two leaders silenced, although only temporarily, as the Alliance got adjusted to the new, slightly more liberal Thornley administration.
While Thornley was arguably less enraptured with the UAC than Leese was, the new leader still saw the potential in them, seeing them as yet another weapon to use, much like Epsilon was. Roman continued his planning and redesigning of the UAC, supporting efforts in the Indochina and closer to home in Ireland. While the War was over, there were still a lot of fires that needed to be put out with the rise in Socialist Guerrilla activity across the globe.
In 1959, a newly joined member of the UAC caught Roman’s eye, and the two quickly fell into conversation. The man was Walter Erin, a fellow Irishman like Roman, and one who had claimed to have supported the UAC since its earliest days, although the overall tension in Ireland had made it impossible for him to join the UAC without gaining the ire of the Phoenix Front and other like minded Irish groups. Within a few months, Roman had seen to it that Erin had risen through the ranks of the UAC, and was quickly announced as Roman’s right hand man in the UAC. While many, at first, considered it unusual and borderline deviant for such an unknown to rise through the ranks like this, these doubts were silenced when, in 1960, President MacArthur announced his withdrawal from the UAC and Roman, the highest-ranking member in the UAC after MacArthur, was declared as the new leader of the entire UAC, and he was assumed the role with almost complete universal acceptance in the UAC for this role.
Now, Roman could set his plans into action. The international base of the UAC was moved from Havana to London in the summer of 1960, and Roman secured funding and scientists from Thornley in order to set up their own scientific research departments. All experiments with PHS technology were removed from Guantanamo, and instead, the new PHS research base was established in the Isle of Dogs in London. Money was funneled into developing and refining drone technology that had stagnated after its promise in the 1930’s, and smaller scale particle accelerators, known as Betatron Accelerators, started to be built, amongst other things. The majority of these new technologies were kept under lock and key, as Roman had misgivings about some of the other branches of the Alliance, most notably, Geoffrey in Epsilon, and was concerned about letting the more dangerous UAC technology fall into such hands. While Thornley threw money at masses of new, strange super weapons, such as Spectrum weaponry and Iron Curtain technology, and that’s ignoring all the top secret government projects Epsilon were conducting, the UAC kept their science divisions busy with simpler, but just as effective, technology.
By 1963, Roman and Erin realised what was going to happen. Thornley, much like his predecessor, was building for a war against the Communists. Erin managed to convince Roman to step up the UAC for the coming war, and the UAC began to expand once again.
The UAC had seen a massive influx of numbers in the post war years, as many citizens saw them as brave, loyal soldiers who would defend the world against the ‘Communist Empire’. Many fell in with their rhetoric, and even more came for the chance to defeat Communism in UAC’s way. More and more promises of the defeat of Communism rose, and many in the UASR felt threatened by the lines that Roman was laying against them. And this is to say nothing of the treatment of perceived Communists by UAC.
Anybody who even breathed about Socialism or social liberties were likely to be taken away by the UAC, never to be seen again, or if they were, then they would be almost completely different to when they were taken. In groups like the Phoenix Front and the Vietminh, rumours began to spread of something being off about the members of the UAC, that they were different to normal people. Often, these rumours could be boiled down to ‘there’s just something wrong with these people’. But, in the Alliance, people loved the UAC. They were heroes. Roman was a national hero, one who could be held up as a representation of everything that the Alliance dreamed of, and so much more. Even the mysterious Erin, the wildcard in UAC’s deck, was seen as a charming and decent representative of the organization, gaining as much a rapport with the common Alliance citizen as Roman did.
But, as things began to spiral, as they did prior to the Second World War and as the world began to move faster and faster to the sounds of the Third World War, the UAC became even more prepared. Guns were stockpiled, armour made for the troops. The old tanks, helicopters and boats that the UAC used were all refurbished and the weaponry upgraded. New forms of drones and scientific weaponry were stored in secret in UAC warehouses across the globe, and Roman and Erin sat down to devise a plan.
The Alliance would be focused on the Comintern, and Thornley was too narrow-minded to consider other possibilities. Erin reminded Roman of Japan's and Africa’s involvement in the Second World War, and he made Roman realise that the likelihood of the two returning to fight were high. In the Pacific Alliance states and India, more UAC troops were deployed, keeping a close eye on China as well. Whatever forsaken French and British colonies in Africa also saw a sharp increase of UAC deployment and activity, most under the pretense of clamping down on Communist insurgents. However, Roman and Erin didn’t stop there. Other factors, like the Guardian’s of Monarchy, who had stayed out of WW2, needed to be watched, and Roman order the UAC’s spy program to begin investigations into Geoffrey and Epsilon, as Roman feared that such an organization could either be the saviour, or the killer of both the Alliance, and the UAC.
Soon, there was little to do but sit back and wait for the Third World War to start. And, on the 3rd of January, 1966, the War began.
Dance With the Devil
“BETTER DEAD THAN RED, COMMIE!”
- -UAC graffiti seen throughout Alliance Occupied Territory during the Third World War.
The Third World War was perhaps the greatest, most destructive war that the Earth had ever fought, and the UAC played an instrumental role in assisting the Alliance and Thornley with the war effort. The attacks were quick, powerful, and wherever the Alliance marched, Roman’s troops followed. The Cuban branch of the UAC spearheaded the American White Army’s assault on Miami and the Mexican Gulf, while other branches in the Integralist Bloc aided their march though mesoamerica. In Eastern Europe, the UAC found itself marching through Kiev and Minsk, capturing and killing Communist resistors to the will of the Alliance, and the likes of the Vietminh and Phoenix Front teetered on the brink of destruction as the newly formed Vietnamese and Irish UAC launched localised assaults against their positions. Soon, both the Alliance and the UAC stood on the threshold of Washington DC and Moscow, and as the USSR’s high command prepared to fall back to Uralgrad, the whole world looked like it would fall to the might of Fascism.
But of course, even the best laid plans go awry. In the fall of 1967, the newly dubbed Field Marshall and head of UAC, Aaron Roman, learnt of a truth that he had long feared. His spies reported that all documentation about Geoffrey and his role with Epsilon were in fact, faked. A realization dawned on both Roman and Erin, and they set out the call to mobilize what they called, ‘Plan Q-67’. Immediately, the call for London’s UAC members to safeguard the hidden warehouses and the Isle of Dogs research labs was sent out, and the UAC’s command hub in London set about feverishly to warn the other UAC branches of the impending danger. Less than twenty-four hours later, Epsilon rose against the Alliance.
The armies of Epsilon had access to the powerful weapons and psychic powers that they had researched, but not access to the science of the UAC. With the betrayal revealed, and the infamous Psychic Dominators set to activate all over the world, Roman and the UAC moved against the Epsilon forces in London. A Psychic Dominator was discovered to be in London itself, and a nearby Alliance garrison had all been forced under the mental thrall of Epsilon. Roman ordered Plan Q-67 into effect, and the ace up UAC’s sleeve was revealed to the world: The newly developed Q-67 Combat Drones and the Q-62 Anti-Vehicular Drones rolled out of the previous secretive UAC warehouses, and Betatron weaponry was quickly distributed amongst the UAC troopers and commanded straight at Epsilon’s London force.
The battle was intense, with UAC’s Drones and what Alliance soldiers remained assaulting Epsilon's base. The action of the UAC took both Geoffrey and Thornley by surprise, as neither had realized what Roman’s scientists had been working on. While many of the Q-67’s were destroyed, their immunity to Epsilon’s psychic abilities allowed the joint UAC and Alliance soldiers to shut down the Psychic Dominator, and free London from the immediate threat of the Dominion.
However, things soon went from bad, to worse. With Epsilon’s legions carving both the Alliance’s troops and the Comintern’s workers to pieces, the discovery that the Communists had allowed the Alliance to burrow too deep into their territory in a strategy to weaken them, and possible action being taken against Roman and Erin for the secretive development of the Q-67, things looked bleak for the UAC. But then, the Axis rose, as Roman and Erin had anticipated, at least, partially.
As Japan swamped over the world, the Africans rose in the colonies, and the Guardian’s of the Monarchy striking at anywhere they passed, the Alliance was caught unprepared, but the ever vigilant UAC wasn’t. As UAC’s Amazonian regiments fought in Brazil, the Vietnamese UAC reinforced Saigon and the Colonial Branches attempted offenses in the Congo, Roman set his limited fleets against areas the Majestica Inclusive and Pacifica Traders conducted their raids. But UAC was becoming stretched again, and Roman could only rely on the support the citizens of the Alliance showered on him for his actions in London for so long. This war, a war that was meant to be as simple as red against blue, was soon becoming a mix of orange, purple, grey and every other colour known to man. It was chaos come to life.
Thornley drew troops from the fronts with the International to battle against the Axis and Epsilon, and Roman ordered UAC to follow. The UAC saw extended action in the Battle of Tokyo against the Axis, and there were even Artic troopers from UAC assisting the Alliance in its monumental assault against Epsilon but, by the time the war had entered the closing stages however, the Alliance had been pushed to its pre-war borders, despite the Axis now suing for peace and Epsilon suffering heavily as its Antarctic base was under assault. Thornley declared that the Alliance could beat the International once and for all, and began plans for a brand new offensive. But the UAC, and others, had decided that the war needed to end. At the end, the UAC threw its lot in with Manning’s Coup, unknown to them that the Comintern supported it as well. Thornley jettisoned himself into space, and Manning took control as the new head of the Alliance. Roman, Erin and the rest of the UAC swore allegiance to Manning, and peace was settled between the four sides. UAC began the long road to helping rebuild the Alliance nations.
In the short time since the Third World War finally ended, the UAC has been working hard, in multiple ways. With the rise of organizations such as the infamous World Liberation Army, UAC’s Middle Eastern Branches fought against them. Similar situations arose all around the world, wherever anti-Alliance insurgencies took place. Vietnam and Ireland saw increased UAC action, although there are rumours that Walter Erin is trying to convince Roman to withdraw the UAC from the Emerald Isle. Meanwhile, the UAC has been rebuilding its drones, under the watchful eye of Manning, who began to demand that all research conducted by branches of the Alliance to be shared, lest a repeat of Epsilon happens. While the UAC keeps its drone work on the table, the leaps and bounds that they made into PHS technology during the Third World War were kept under wraps, a decision many in the UAC felt was the right one.
Meanwhile, the UAC has also had to deal with anger at it from the Comintern, accusing them of lacing the water supplies of UAC occupied nations with soporific drugs and using them as a test bed for strange experiments to do with the mind. Accusations of the UAC being directly linked to the rise in diagnosed cases of Dissociative Identity Disorders in territory that had seen massive increases UAC activity during the war, and even citing rumours of the same thing happening in Alliance territory with high UAC presence. Roman denies these accusations, claiming that the tainting of the water supplies could just have easily been an Axis or Epsilon ploy, and that mental disorders tend to increase during wartime.
But, now, the UAC wait and plan. They have access to one of the greatest industrial bases in the world, and money flows into UAC’s London Headquarters at an increased rate, helped by the fact that the Alliance now doesn’t need to waste money on Epsilon’s petty experiments anymore. On a daily basis, UAC representatives from Paris, Havana, Saigon and elsewhere meet with Roman and the ever present Erin, to discuss the plans they have for the future. Everywhere that the UAC is, the people march to their orders. The UAC and Roman are seen as heroes, more so than they were in WW2. Citizens that would lay their lives down for the UAC, and would loyally help maintain and support the UAC’s Defense Forces in preparation for the next conflict. With more and more support growing within the Alliance for the UAC, Roman and Erin march forward with their self-appointed mission.
The mission to eradicate Communism, to make the UAC the saviours of the world. UAC will be first, second and third. UAC will be the order to drive the chaos of the Earth into the dirt. UAC will be forever.

|International Embassy||The regional headquarters that the UAC places its calls and requests for the Nationalists, and it is directly required if a commander wants to field a nationalist better than the Silver Shirt Recruit.|
|AMOC Server Bunker||A specialized bunker that houses the AMOC (Analytical Military Ordinance Computer) Servers that the UAC uses to gather intelligence in the field and access its more advanced technology.|
|Diplomacy Bureau||The defensive superweapon used by the UAC, the Bureau sends targeted Diplomatic PHS transmissions to a select group of enemies. Such an intense bombardment of PHS frequencies almost completely rewrites their mental functions, turning them into loyal soldiers for the UAC.|
|Q-55 Siege Cannon||The UAC's offensive superweapon, the Q-55 is a large, immobile gun that is designed to reduce enemy strongholds and positions to rubble and ash. While each shell is not particularly destructive when compared to other offensive superweapons, it makes up for it with its relatively simple construction and fast rate of fire.|
|UAC Wall||A dependable wall of brick and concrete designed to protect UAC's ideals and assets.|
|UAC Gate||Steel and razor wire automatic gates that open for friendly troops based on proximity, they support a secondary ability that increases the armour of the UAC Walls, but this stops the Gates ability to open until it's deactivated.|
|Moloch Post||Moloch Posts are small radio outposts used by the UAC to scout the field. However, they have an even greater use, and that is the fact that UAC offensive defences can only be built around these posts.|
|Blockhouse||Squat wood, concrete and turf structures built by Masons, these buildings act as bunkers for up to three squads of infantry troops, who can fire out with relative safety lest the enemy bring anti-garrison tactics to force, and can be a real asset if garrisoned with AA troops.|
|Machine Gun Emplacement||Surplus anti-infantry machine guns placed and manned in wood and turf dugouts not too dissimilar to the dugouts that the Blackshirt Infantry are taught to construct.|
|Flak Cannon||While the Alliance proper might regard these 8.8cm flak cannons as too old to continue service in the army, the UAC believes they still have a place, especially with a good modern autoloader to pump one flak shell out every second.|
|PIAT Battery||Vehicles thinking they can approach a UAC base will be met with a rather unpleasant surprise when these PIATs launch a blistering and constant rain of spring launched HEAT warheads at a high angle that rains down on vulnerable top armor, quickly rendering most vehicles smoking ruins.|
|PHS Towers||Not as quick to act as Epsilon's telepathic towers, PHS towers can however, affect more units at once and work quite similarly to the Talon's Hypnosis towers. Enemy units can eventually be brought into the thrall of the PHS and thus be made to serve the Union of Anti-Communists, though if the tower is destroyed the switch of sides will gradually be undone.|
|Betatron Cannon||The most sophisticated defense in the Union of Anti-Communist's arsenal is a cannon that bombards the enemy with deadly Betatron rounds that can carve through just about any ground based target with each shot; giving solid shot for the vehicles and a whiff of canister shot for the infantry.|
|Victory Howitzer Emplacement||Dug in and stationary Howitzers based off the old British BL 8-inch VIII, these are used with the idea of showering advancing enemies with large shrapnel shells in order to try and halt advancing infantry when all else has failed.|
|K-9||Mechanical drones built to vaguely resemble dogs, K-9s are the scout infantry of the Union of Anti-Communists. They are equipped with an EMP bomb to disable vehicles upon activation, and also a pair of mechanical jaws, which rip through targeted infantry.|
|Blackshirt Infantry||The standard infantry of the UAC, the Blackshirts are made up of loyal Fascists from across the Alliance of Free States, the Blackshirts have been trained and armed with Mauser-styled rifles in order to combat the red hordes, and have also been trained with the creation of wood and turf dugouts, which they can garrison against enemy attacks.|
|Grey Hunter||Local militia troops loyal to the UAC, the Grey Hunter has been equipped with 55mm recoilless rifles, decent body armour and helmets, and a complete, undying loyalty to the UAC, Grey Hunters can decimate enemy armoured cars and light tanks, although the nature of their weaponry means that most forms of aircraft are out of their reach.|
|Field Agent||Supervisors of UAC troop operations within the field, the Field Agent is armed with a standard M1911 pistol for personal defense. although their main role on the battlefield is their prototype mesmerizer portable PHS device, which is used to stun enemy soldiers from a distance, which allows the other soldiers of UAC to take care of them. With little armour, and no way of stunning tanks or planes, the Field Agents need to be protected at all costs in the field.|
|Mason||The engineer for the UAC, Masons are skilled at capturing structures and repairing UAC vehicles in the field, although their main draw is their skill in constructing Blockhouses, which can be garrisoned by friendly infantry in order to protect themselves from enemy fire.|
|Ubermensch||Loyal volunteers that have allowed their bodies to be locked into mechanical life-support suits that are redesigns of an industrial exoskeleton from 1963, the Ubermensch are a slow moving, gorilla-esque troop armed with a large, custom-designed grenade launchers, and they excel in decimating enemy troops from afar. While these troops are well armoured, they will eventually fall to dedicated anti-infantry fire, making the Ubermensch explode spectacularly once the killing shot has been delivered.|
|Demagogue Agent||Despite the bluntness of the majority of the UAC, Roman and Erin recognizes that sometimes all you need to do to win a battle is to say the right set of words at the right time. This is where the UAC Demagogues step into the fray. Made up of the most charismatic UAC supporters, these eloquent non-combatants are used to convince enemy troops to turn against their commanders and assist in UAC’s goals. Unarmed, underarmoured, and completely ineffective against non-human enemies such as the EP, Kumun and Atomic Chinese Clones, they are weak and fragile, but completely indispensable when the conventional militaries begin to field their heavy hitters.|
|Eulogist||Snipers, made up of refugees from America now living in Cuba, the Eulogists are equipped with modified Springfield Rifles, and UAC issued camouflage cloaks, allowing them to briefly stealth while they wait to take their shot.While they aren't the longest of ranged snipers, they do give the UAC that touch of range they need over their enemies.|
|Covert Operations Agent||Recruits from Alliance spy programs, Covert Operations Agents are actually more akin to assassins than they are to spies. Armed with silenced pistols, tailored jumpsuits and a combat knife, they have poor attack capabilities and little armour, but they are very decent infiltrators.|
|Special UAC Serviceman||Wearing an armoured vest, gasmasks, and wielding combat shotguns, Special UAC Servicemen are designed for close urban and building-to-building fighting, they combine the close range and and damage with speed and decent armour. As a special ace up their sleeves, these soldiers are equipped with discus grenades for damage against enemy vehicles and infantry outside of their limited range. While these grenades fly further and harder than most other grenades, they still require enemies to be within throwing range.|
|Black Cross Trooper||Indoctrinated gang members equipped with a newly developed air-powered, shoulder mounted AA gun, they're given decent armour and are trained to take shots at any aircraft that threatens the UAC's airspace. While this weapon will tear enemy planes to shreds, the recoil and unwieldy nature makes it extremely difficult to utilize properly against enemy tanks and infantry. However, they can also call-in a special drone guided mortar salvo that can deal with approaching enemy tanks.|
|Greycoat Guardsman||The UAC's elite of the elite, the guards of the UAC's leaders, Greycoats are armed with both specially refurbished and modified bolt-action rifles and nail-bombs, plus come equipped with newly designed light-weight body armour that allows them to be well defended as well as fast on the field, and their main armament gives them a ranged edge over most of the UAC's other troops. However, their body armour can only stop so much, and their rifle is outmatched by common assault rifles when it comes to the amount of bullets they can put out.|
|Betatron Operative||Second only to the Ubermensch in terms of armour, and one of the faster UAC units, due to strict training regimes, the Betatron Operatives utilizes a new, specially developed and secretive weapon: The Betatron Rifle. Using Betatron energy to coat a 5.33mm bullet, this Operative serves as the armour piercing elite of the UAC. However, all that armour and tech comes at a hefty price, making it very expensive to attempt to field mass battalions of them, and making it very painful every time one is lost. Also, while effective against armour, the shots of the Betatron Rifle don’t do that much damage to normal flesh, at least in this manner, and the shots are too slow to actually attempt to hit anything more than a wounded helicopter.|
|Q-67 Combat Drone||Bipedal drones designed for more active combat roles than the K-9's, Q-67's are lightly armoured, vaguely humanoid robots that are equipped with downscaled Betatron devices for attacking enemies of the UAC, as well as serrated swords instead of hands, which allow them to attack any close infantry with powerful slashes and swipes. Unbelievably fast for their mechanical nature, they have the ability to quickly kill enemy infantry with their weaponry, and they all pack a a nasty surprise in the form of the explosive systems that activate when the drone's systems begin to fail on the battlefield. The only real downside to them, other than their lack of armour due to their size, is the fact that they need to be ordered to switch between their Betatron weaponry and their arm swords.|
|Ombré||On loan from Central Headquarters in London, Ms. Ombre is a young up-and-comer within the UAC that's more trained for covert operations than large-scale battles, she's armed with a specially modified Mauser Machine Pistol, custom infantry killing blades, and a Betatron-based anti-personal deterrent device. A calm and collected young woman who serves the UAC to the letter, she's sent wherever the enemies of the UAC are, and she makes sure that they'll never leave the field again.|
|Mobile Radio Vehicle||The Mobile Radio Vehicle, or MRV allows the UAC to set up new bases in the field, unpacking to form the Radio Control Center, which in turn, builds the rest of the UAC's structures. While it is heavily armoured, this results in it being slower than other similar vehicles fielded in other militaries.|
|Hazelnut Ore Collector||On loan from the Sicilian Branch of the UAC, the Hazelnut is a stocky, rugged vehicle designed to withstand insurgent attacks will gathering ore. However, if things begin to get too serious for the UAC's forces, then the Hazelnut can emit a sound beacon, which draws all enemy attention in the vicinity towards it instead. While this new attention will most likely result in the untimely death of the Hazelnut, it can give the rest of the UAC the needed breathing space to work with.|
|Opus Combat Car||Based off a British Armour Car designed for the rugged terrains of Eastern Europe and the Asiatic theatres, the Opus' are ready for a new war. Equipped with dual 40mm guns for dealing with enemy infantry and other armoured cars that would dare to go near it. The Opus is also equipped with space to carry two infantry squads that can fire out at the enemy as well.|
|Spectacle Missile Carrier||Surplus supply trucks that are refitted with with rows of a missile based anti-air system for quickly destroying enemy air targets. While the Spectacle is decent at AA duty, the configuration of its weapons means that it can't be used to fire against enemy ground positions. However, there is enough room on the Spectacle for a single infantryman to garrison.|
|Salvator Tank||The main battle tank of the UAC, the Salvator is armed with an 105mm main gun, decent armour to survive against Comintern assaults, a design to survive all but the worst hits, and space for an infantry squad to assist it with their own firepower. While its main armament is on the lower end of the spectrum for MBT armament, its speed and armour makes up for it.|
|Elegist Tank||The advanced MBT of the UAC, the Elegist is as equally well armed as a modernized retriever with its powerful 120mm main gun that's modified to fire specialised armour-piercing shells, and it is faster, if substantially less well armoured. It is also equipped with an added anti-infantry machine gun, which can utilized by the single infantryman that the Tank can also carry.|
|Victorum Heavy Tank||The Victorum is a arguably less advanced, but heavily armoured Heavy Tank from the Second World War. A new mark of the Thunderer armed with twin long 120mms, the Victorum is designed to soak up enemy fire whilst providing a strong backbone for UAC assaults, augmented by the room if has for a squad of UAC soldiers to fire out of if needed.|
|Assault Thunderer||A modification of the Thunderer tank made to mount two 183mm guns, the Assault Thunderer has a limited turret traverse but can blast apart even the heaviest of fortifications with a one two punch of seven inch HESH rounds and has been modified to be able to dig tunnels.|
|Strages Tank Killer||The UAC's direct answer to enemy MBT's and heavy tanks, the Strages is armed with a 140mm main gun, heavy armour and decent range in order to get its job done. However, the nature of its gun means that it can not effectively combat enemy infantry, bar with the use of the one infantryman that can ride with it, and aircraft are out of the equation due to the limited movement that the gun has. Also, the shells it utilizes will, while effective against enemy armour, do little damage against buildings, meaning that the UAC will be forced to rely on other vehicles for those types of roles. However, it can deploy to elevate its gun to deal with aircraft via powerful proximity fused flak shells that can deal substantial damage to aircraft.|
|Q-54 Raven Transport||The Q-54 Raven is a heavily armoured transport designed to carry three squads of UAC soldiers into the heart of battle, even the Ubermensch, and all occupants can fire out at enemy troops, making up for its lack of built in weaponry.|
|Dividia Artillery Truck||A large 234mm artillery gun that is mounted and transported on a modified truck, the Dividia must deploy in order to fire its high powered shells, but that's made up by the fact that the Dividia enjoys a longer range and cause more destruction than most other fielded artillery pieces. However, the Dividia lacks armour, and the range that it boasts means that it'll struggle and suffer if enemy troops manage to get close to it.|
|Q-70 Artillery||The latest machine to role out of the UAC's HQ, the Q-67 combines the Betatron technology with basic acoustic weaponry in order for it to massacre enemy infantry. The Q-67, when firing, emits an acoustic cone from its gun-like front, before firing Betatron energy down it. This combination causes anything with a circulatory system or equivalent, to die of massive internal hemorrhaging, due to the energy bursting the blood cells in the arteries and veins. The energy will even pass through and kill the occupants of armoured cars and garrisoned buildings, although most MBT's have enough armour to withstand it. However, there are a few drawbacks of the Q-67, such as the enormous cost of the device, meaning that the destruction of one can cripple the UAC's economy in a heated engagement. The weapon also, unfortunately, supports a poor range for its nature, meaning that snipers, ships and aircraft are well outside of its range. This makes the Q-67 best used for urban ambushes and other such engagements.|
Unlike the well trained and disiplined troops of the UAC, Nationalist recruits tend to be less well armoured and armed, but also much, much cheaper. These troops are used as stop-gaps until funds are enough that the UAC's real infantry can march on the field.
|Grey Wolf||Domesticated wolves from the mountains of Turkey, the Gray Wolves serve as the stand-in for K-9 whom Roman & Erin don't trust in Nationalist hands. Instead of an EMP device, the Grey Wolf carries a first aid kit that heals all infantry units in its radius. It is also much faster than its robotic cousin, and can cross rough terrain the robotic legs of the K-9 might normally have trouble with. However, it is still flesh and blood, meaning that it is not as durable as the K-9, and due to lacking the EMP device, it has no way of dealing with vehicles.|
|Silver Shirt Recruit||Loyal nationalists from around the world, equipped with an old, outdated bolt-action rifle and a handful of fragmentation grenades. Silver Shirts, while easy to quickly amass in the field, their lack of armour, firepower and their rate of fire means that they won’t be able to survive for long under sustained fire.|
|Toledo Queens||Women from across Franco’s Spain that swear to the UAC’s cause, they’ve been armed with old model anti-tank rifles that they can use to punch holes in armoured cars and light tanks, as well as armour and the equipment to construct a cheap shelter for two. While their weapon can punch through armoured cars, it lacks the power to seriously damage heavy tanks, and their basic training isn’t enough for them to properly deal with aircraft and infantry.|
|Voortrekker||Drafted from native Afrikaans in South Africa, these Boer soldiers have been handed an old sniper rifle and ordered to make sure than the enemies of UAC never live to see the day. The rifles they use lack the range of modern equipment, but they have the ability to construct small sniper shelters, in order to help their aim and give them some form of limited protection.|
|Staatkorps||Recruited members from the German State Police, Staatkorps are trained with basic infiltration techniques, although their skills are no match for a proper spy. Armed with a collapsable truncheon for defense if found, and no real armour, the Staatkorps make for easy targets when found by UAC’s enemies.|
|Wendigo Regimental||Armed with silenced submachine guns and self made explosive tomahawks, these members of the Canadian 27th Royal Infantry hit hard and fast as they cause havoc amongst the enemy lines. Due to shunning most armour, Wendigo’s are fast, but also very much at risk from enemy fire and defenses, and this is only made worse by the low range of their weapons and the inaccuracy of them.|
|St. John Legionnaire||Straight from Malta, these cross wearing soldiers pack a punch with the array of explosives they carry to throw at the enemies of UAC. As an added bonus, they’ve constructed so-called firework hoops of wood and gunpowder, which they can hurl into enemy formations and garrisons with devastating effect. Lacking armour and any form of real long ranged attack, these modern knights will suffer from enemy fire.|
|Sojunghwa Mortarmen||Enthusiastic Korean militia soldiers armed with piecemeal mortars and high impact shells, the Sojunghwa can do incredible, but highly inaccurate, damage to enemy positions. As an extra, the UAC has snuck a supply of specialist camera rounds to them, allowing them to fire them to reveal portions of the battlefield currently outside the UAC’s current range. As with all Militia, armour is non-existent, and the nature of their weaponry means that they are incredibly slow.|
|Q-64 Muldjewangk War Drone||Built by members of the Australian UAC, the Q-65 is designed with one target in mind: Enemy battle-suits. Appearing as missing link between the quadrupedal K-9 drones and the bipedal Q-67, these War Drones are armed with a powerful 20mm gun that can only be used once the Drone has deployed into artillery mode. While it'll tear through its intended targets with ease, the Q-64 will do nothing against tanks, and its weapon simply lacks the range to target ships and aircraft. Coupled with its relatively weak armour, and the Q-64 turns into a niche drone that requires extensive protection to do its job well.|
|Fheallmharfóirí||Mysterious recruits from the Frith-Sraith Cumannach na hÉireann branch of the UAC, these smiling assassins hide in plain sight, with their twin Irish-made variants of the Browning Hi-Power and sawback sword bayonets to slice enemy soldiers that get too close to them in the heat of battle. What makes these Irish Assassins so deadly, however, is their ability to hide in plain sight, disguised as a civilian in their casual dark-green suits, striking without warning from the shadows. However, as a result of their suit, and the low range of both their weapons, the Fheallmharfóirí will find themselves quickly dispatched by alert enemies that the Fheallmharfóirí aren't quick enough to get away from.|
|Jagare Winter Trooper||Straight from the Kalmar Union, Jagare are alpine troops armed with short carbines and skis. These skis allow them to travel down hills extremely fast, but unfortunately, it means they suffer when attempting to go up them. Plus, their highly mobile skirmishing nature means that they lack armour, and their weapon, while packing some form of a punch, doesn’t have that much range.|
|Knights of the Cross||Members of the second Klan that fled to Cuba following the failed putsch of 1933, these white robed, violent vigilantes ride into battle on harden warhorses, their Winchester 1897 Shotguns doing tremendous damage to the enemies of the UAC, and they have been trained to use their bullwhips to disarm enemies that get too close to them. Equipped also with light armour under their flowing robes, these ritualistic modern knights can act as early armed scouts or as harassers to weaker enemy lines, although like all Nationalist recruits, they’ll quickly fall to sustained enemy fire.|
|Q-68 Chiển Tranh Drone||Vietnamese versions of the Q-67 Combat Drone, the Chien Tranh Drone is designed for jungle duty, so it’s armed with a flamethrower based on one forearm, and a combat buzzsaw on the other. Just like the Q-67, the Chien Tranh will explode when its systems begin to fail, but this time, they’ve been packed with incendiaries, resulting in a small inferno - which will also harm any UAC unit around it as well as the enemy. However, these drones are slower, less well armoured and their weaponry lacks the power of their British counterparts, so it’s inadvisable for a commander to use the Chien Tranh as a replacement for the Q-67.|
|Tòngkû Suit||Silent Chinese capitalists that have fled the destruction of their homeland and straight into the arms of the UAC, they have been technically locked within specialized Hazmat Suits and armed with an ray gun reversed engineered from captured Red Chinese tech that can melt through enemy infantry with ease. The suit lacks armour, the weapon lacks range, but when waiting for the funds to afford the Betatron Operative, the Tongku makes an excellent stop gap.|
|Grote Rex Power Armour||The most advanced soldier of the Nationalists, these loyal warriors are recruited from nationalist groups all across the Benelux Federation, and are trained in the use of their M-54 Power Armour Suits, that allow them to survive all but the most directs of enemy shots, as well as being trained in the proper use of their powerful Gauss Rifles, which allows them to punch through other battlesuits and lightly armoured vehicles, as well as through other enemy infantry. However, this all comes at a cost - For the Grote Rex is the single most expensive nationalist, and their Gauss Rifle, while effective, is extremely slow firing, and even slower reloading. And of course, enemy soldiers will eventually be able to get through their armoured suit.|
|Libertatum Fighter Bomber||A multipurpose fighter-bomber that's equipped with a quartet of 20mm autocannons for tearing enemy aircraft to pieces, and a slew of high impact bombs for use against enemy occupied cities. The Libertatum give the UAC vital aerial support, and can be vital in the defense of their helicopter fleet.|
|Hart Transport Helicopter||Transport helicopters manufactured for the safety of their passengers, Harts are equipped with a pair of light machine gun to suppress enemy infantry on the ground who threaten the UAC. With room for two squads of infantrymen, the Hart is perfect for getting Infantry where they need to go, fast, and is vital for UAC operations.|
|Foxhound Attack Helicopter||The only proper attack helicopter that the UAC has in its Airfleet, this repurposed German design has been redesigned for both anti-ship and anti-submarine duty, meaning that the forces that be have packed the craft with surplus depth charges, and its only defense against other planes and helicopters - a simple machine gun mounted in the nose - makes it very vulnerable without further aerial support, and it’s slightly outdated design makes it slower than concurrent helicopters that are fielded by other forces, or even the other helicopters fielded by the UAC.|
|Enoch Heavy Transport Helicopter||Enoch's are equipped with twin grenade launchers to suppress enemy infantry and heavily damage the light vehicles the enemy would field against the UAC. Instead of normally evacuating infantry, the Enoch releases several wires, allowing UAC infantry to rappel into the target area. They may also rappel directly into garrisons, and should enemy infantry already be inside those garrisons, they'll be cleared by the advancing UAC troops.|
|Drone Command Helicopter||Controlling a number of anti-vehicular attack drones and defending itself with a single gatling gun, the Drone Command Helicopters are large and bulky helicopters that can build and maintain even more drones when Masons are ordered to board it.|
|Roc QX-71 Advanced Fighter||A ramjet VTOL Aircraft that utilizes an unusual tilt-wing configuration, and a set of the same autocannons that the Libertatum possesses, as well as a high yield 'bunker-buster' bomb. The Roc is fast, dangerous and the single most advanced aircraft within the UAC's arsenal. It's primary use is that of a rapid response attack plane, being almost able to keep up with anything the Communists could throw against the UAC; and serves as both the tactical bomber and interceptor for the UAC.|
|Avro Viceroy Bomber||A second world war era jet bomber that has been generously donated in bulk to the UAC along with its SPAM templates, the Viceroy has been extensively modified to keep it relevant on the modern battlefield and drops a number of powerful bombs to blast apart enemy bases and troop formations beneath them; and can defend itself with an array of anti-aircraft drones that can parasite on the aircraft and attack enemy planes with four hotchkiss machine guns each. While not the most damaging of defenses, so long as they let the Bomber get away from interceptors; so be it.|
|Loire Scout Speeder||A quick and basic stealth speedboat armed with twin Vickers Machine Guns that can pierce holes in anything that flies above it, as well as any other light ships. It also has a supply of tracking devices that it can place on the hulls of enemy ships, which allows their movements to be tracked through the fog of war.|
|Tagus Patrol Vessel||A quick ship equipped with a M4 Autocannon allowing it to destroy enemy watercraft, and it has a high powered Searchlight that allows it to locate any enemy boats that might be stealthed at sea.|
|Spree Light Cruiser||The UAC's main anti-air answer at sea, the Spree is armed with rows of 5-in AA guns that can shred enemy aircraft, as well as an experimental naval based version of the AMOC RADAR Device, which not only allows it to get a better trace on enemy aircraft, but also gives it the ability to temporally detect enemy submarines.|
|Tiber Repair Craft||An ocean going repair ship that is vital in its use to maintain the UAC's navy, as it has the capabilities to repair and maintain all forms of UAC ships at sea, which makes it a obvious target for any enemy that wishes to cripple the UAC's naval presence in an area.|
|Kalix Transport Craft||A light, amphibious troop transport that can carry one vehicle or 5 infantrymen across the water, and the occupants can fire out as well, giving the Kalix some measure of defense.|
|Rhone Warship||A refined Frigate repurposed as a coastal bombardment ship, the Rhone is armed with several 4-in guns that are modified to fire high powered incendiary shells in order to shatter any and all coastal defenses that the enemy believes can stop the UAC. The Rhone is a fast, if under armoured ship, its main downside is that the guns are calibrated in a specific way, meaning that it is unable to utilize its weapons against enemy ships, and this is coupled with the fact that enemy shore defenses will shred the ship if they manage to get a trace on it.|
|Shannon Stealth Submarine||The Shannon is the most secretive and valuable submarine in the UAC's arsenal, as very few outside of Roman and Erin's circles even know of its existence. Utilizing a specially developed rubber coating and metalo-ceramic plates, which render the submarine invisible to all forms of RADAR and SONAR, the Shannon is armed with dangerous experimental torpedoes that will sink anything that they hit, and it has a EMP Torpedo it can launch in order to temporarily cripple enemy detection devices for the safety of the rest of the UAC's fleet. The only problems that the Shannon faces then, other than its astronomical price tag and the obvious danger of blind depth charges in its path, is that it is required to surface whenever it wishes to fire its torpedoes, rendering it visible to all around it.|
|Leeds Battlecruiser||The UAC's biggest and baddest anti-ship warship, the Leeds packs a special innovation, missiles that can also serve as torpedoes depending on whether the target is on land or in the water. Large and durable, the Leeds can soak up a fearsome beating and is able to focus a wave of PHS signals to nearly instantly demoralize an enemy to render them incapable of effectively fighting back.|
|Thames Missile Cruiser||The capitol ship of the UAC, the Thames is equipped with multiple rows of missiles, making it capable of striking targets, both land and ocean based, at incredible distances. As a more, direct weapon, the Thames can reveal its 550mm gun, loaded with "Bunker-Buster" specialized shells that can destroy all but the sturdiest enemy structures.|
|Aare Drone Carrier||Large ships that have been repurposed as carriers by the UAC, except instead of planes, the Aare is armed with Q-59 Air-to-Air Drones, and Q-57 Land Attack Drones, both of which are controlled directly from a combination of AMOC Drone Servers and specialist human input. While this means that the UAC won't have to risk human pilots in naval engagements, these drones are slightly inferior to actual planes, although they're a lot more numerous and can be easily replaced by the Drone factory in the depths of the ship. Also, the Aare supports the facilities to launch a specialist, high powered suicide drone, which will act akin to a missile, although it can be directly controlled from the Aare. However, if the Drone gets out of range of the Aare, it'll detonate on its own, whether it's near the chosen target or not.|
|Marteau Howitzer||A gigantic howitzer Roman & Erin had to pay for out of their own pockets, the Marteau is a 380mm gun that serves as one of the UAC's deadliest weapons in the field. Naturally because of its almost obscene cost, it is only deployed in the most dire of situations by UAC field commanders who may never see the light of day again of a Marteau is lost. While it may be powerful, it is important to remember that the Marteau must attack its target from a long ways away to be fully effective.|
