2084: A Republic Reborn


The Liberation of France:
In the waning months of the ceasefire years Paneurope launched a major offensive in a bid to retake Combine occupied Paris. Paneuropean troops coordinated with French Paneuropean loyalists to retake the city. With French lowalists attacking from the less fortified west and Paneuropean cybertanks punching through defences from the East, it is up to the Combine United States Garrison to survive until reinforcements arrive. The Paneuropean liberation force is accompanied by 3 new Fencer cybertank models, but their weaponry is proving to be subpar in this campaign when stacked against long range weaponry or other Ogres. The loyalists are made up of outdated tanks and up-gunned helicopters as well as truck mounted militia, though outgunned, they outnumber the western Combine forces in the city. The Combine Canadian reinforcements are spearheaded by a pair of outdated Mark III’s and a Mark V and should punch through anything other than enemy ogres. The Combine Garrison has large numbers of infantry, heavy tanks and artillery which should stave off all but the most determined assault from the east.
