Colonel Bronisław Sokal of the 3rd regiment of the 8th Artilerry Brigade was at his post, the entire GB- Bulgarian border in the span of a few months was transformed into one of the most heavily fortified places on here. The amount of firepower here was even said to be visible in space, that?s how many men were stationed here. Councillor Angelov had returned with the news that Code Juliet had been implemented during his stay in Europolis, meaning Bulgaria and GB were officially at war. He heard rumors from his commanding officer that it was a pity to let the war start so late after, they technically didn?t have the element of surprise anymore.
He was in one of the various command bunkers built throughout, it overlooked the border filled with radio controlled landmines who were to be deactivated in order to cross into Groot Belgie, other than some tunnels that had been secretly mined over the past few months. It was an eerie Christmas morning, it was cloudy and cold. Winter had been in full swing, but command felt this offered the environmentally tough Bulgarians an advantage.
A polish and halsbergian man appeared alongside him, they were military agents from their nations who had poured money into this effort. Millions in fact, mainly spent on new aircraft curtsey of the Halsbergians. The real gift though, was the package of five electromagnetic pulse warheads donated by one of the two. Which one it was he had no idea, he was lucky to even know of the warheads existence. The two men were here to watch the fruit of their labors unfold, their labors were to unfold in fact. Overhead one could hear the sound of ballistic missiles fly overhead, where these came from, Sokal had no idea, but where they were headed was obvious. Groot Belgie had stationed roughly 2/5s of their military of the border, so there was an obvious target.
?Turn off all electronics that aren?t protected for the blast, on my mark,? ordered Sokal over the intercom to a variety of men instructing that to their various battalions, companies, and so forth. ?Three, two, mark!?
Across the whole line, which was about two kilometers from the blast areas turned off their electronics. The light which had lite up the area suddenly turned off, moments later five blasts were heard. Each minutes apart, but the light so noticeable even when the blasts were in the upper atmosphere. How much of an effect they would have on Groot Belgie was not known, but it would be enough to push deep into the Belgie. War had begun, only time would tell its end effect. Solak signed acknowledging this fact as artillery shells started their bombardment minutes after the EMPs, and as aircraft flew overhead to secure the air near the border. Dozens upon dozens were sent. And thousands, and thousands of shells were fired. War had begun in Europe.
