First Global War (1915~1920)

The First Global War was a conflict between the Entente (Osea, Emmeria, Yuktobania and various Usean nations) and the Triple Powers (Belka, Erusea and the Oghuz Sultanate). Emmerian involvement was limited to colonial skirmishes, expeditionary warfare and support of allies, mainly because the Kingdom of Estovakia was neutral in the conflict, leading to a relatively peaceful Anean continent. 293,415 soldiers, sailors and airmen of the Royal Emmerian Armed Forces died during the conflict, with a further 64,166 dead from Dominion and Colonial Forces.

The Sotoan Front

In the Sotoan subcontinent Emmerian forces fought against a mix of Oghuz and Erusean forces. Due to the difficulty of supplying troops from the opposite side of the world, Erusean colonies were quickly overrun by Emmerian colonial forces. However, Erusean guerrilla forces would be active until the end of the war. Working with local tribes, Emmerian forces also managed to expel Oghuz forces from Rasheedi Tamudia.

War at Sea

Due to the weakness of the Oghuz Sultanate's navy, and the fact that the Royal Emmerian Navy possessed the largest fleet our of all the combatant nations, Emmeria was quickly able to establish control of sea lanes and blockade the Sultanate's coast, However, mines and submarines proved to be a significant problem for warships supporting amphibious and other coastal operations. The Royal Emmerian Armed Forces carried out the world's first modern amphibious landing in 1916, against the southwestern part of the Europan subcontinent. The Royal Emmerian Navy also experimented with naval aviation throughout the war, launching HMS Hermes, the world's first aircraft carrier capable of launching and recovering aircraft, in 1919.

The Emmerian Expeditionary Force

As the Yuktobanian Imperial Army faltered due to poor leadership, logistics and equipment, the Emmerian High Command decided to assist the Yuktobanians by sending several Emmerian field armies into Oghuz-controlled portions of Europa. While this freed up some Yuktobanian tropes for the Kalugan front, both the Yuktobanian Empire and Oghuz Sultanate would ultimately collapse due to internal discontent, strife and war-weariness.

Second Global War (1937~1945)

Verusan Front (1939~1945)

The Verusan Front of the Second Global War began on September 17th 1939, when the Oghuz Republic's armed forces invaded the Kingdom of Rasheedi Tamudia. Honoring a mutual defense agreement signed in March, Emmeria and the various nations of the Emmerian Empire declared war against the Oghuz Republic on the 19th. Influenced by Belkan tactics and military advisers, the Oghuz forces deployed tanks, motorized infantry and tactical airpower to great effect, overrunning all of the country within 7 weeks. Emmerian and colonial forces sent to relieve Rasheedi Tamudia were forced to retreat into Sotoa and Central Sotoa by the larger Oghuz invading force.

In April 1940, Oghuz forces crossed the Strait of Gilboa into southeastern Europa. Europan regular and irregular forces, often assisted by Emmerian forces, fought an effective delaying action in the mountainous terrain, stalling Oghuz troops. The Oghuz Army Group B would only reach Kopebad in October, after slogging through a series of Europan defensive lines.

That May, the Islamic Emirate of Karabastan was invaded by Oghuz troops. Repeating their successes in Rasheedi Tamudia the previous year, Oghuz forces conquered the Emirate within months. However, the advance of Oghuz forces to the Karabastan-Yuktobania border alarmed the Yuktobanian Union, which began to reorganize and call up its forces.

Foreign Relations

Military

Main Article: Emmerian Armed Forces

The Emmerian Armed Forces are tasked with defending the United Kingdom of Emmeria from foreign threats and aggression, while also contributing to peacekeeping, humanitarian and disaster-relief efforts. The armed forces consist of three main service branches: the Emmerian Army, Royal Emmerian Navy (REN) and Royal Emmerian Air Force (REAF). Two sub-branches, the Royal Emmerian Marines (REM) and Royal Emmerian Space Corps (RESC), are independent but nominally under Navy and Air Force control respectively.

Since the end of the Second Global War, its principal adversary has been the armed forces of Yuktobania.

In 2019 the United Kingdom of Emmeria spent a total of $302.2 billion on defense, equivalent to 3.35% of GDP. Emmeria has 683,700 active military personnel and 864,200 reserve personnel. Due to consistent investment in training, equipment and technology, along with the world's third largest economy (behind Osea and the FCU) and third largest defense budget (behind Osea and Yuktobania), Emmeria possesses one of the most powerful armed forces in Altereal.

Space Program

ESA-Perseus Hyperion Spaceplane Project

The Emmerian was established to explore the realm of outer space, and to open it up to various applications. Since its creation in 1960 it has been a world leader in space operations, cooperating with other space agencies on various projects. In 2019 it had a budget of OF$15.314 billion and 12,460 employees.

The first Emmerian satellite was launched from a Altair rocket in 1962. Since then various satellites have been launched into LEO and GEO, including the GSN navigation network, the EMCOM and ECSAT communication satellites, the FORESIGHT reconnaissance satellites, and various scientific satellites. South Axiomian space probes have visited the moon, Mars, the asteroid belt, Jupiter and Saturn.

The Artemis two-person space capsule, and its Electra I booster, was developed in the mid-1960s to provide Emmeria with a manned spaceflight capability. The two astronauts of the 1968 Artemis 3 mission were the first Emmerians in space.

Aries-N Space Capsule during ESM-61 (May 17, 2016)

The Artemis was followed by the the three-person Aries capsule (and Cepheus II booster), which first flew in 1976. The Aries, along with the Osean Space Shuttle and Yuktobanian Soyuz, would play a key role in the International Space Station Project. An improved version, the Aries-N, is still in service today.

The ESA, along with Perseus Air and Space Technologies, is currently testing a fully reusable space-plane, the Hyperion. The Hyperion can carry 2~7 people and/or cargo, and is made up of the main spacecraft and two boosters. The boosters separate after launch, and are recovered through controlled landing at sea, like the SpaceX Falcon 9. The main spacecraft lands as a glider after re-entry.

The Hyperion is planned to open up a new age of manned space exploration, with the ability to cost-effectively assemble large, modular deep-space craft. Manned missions to near-earth asteroids (2024), the moon (2027) and Mars (2035~37) are planned in the future.
