Operation Torchbearer was a multi-state AN-led coalition military intervention in Finstria beginning on 4 January 1986. The invasion phase lasted over three months, ending on 10 March, in which a combined force from Krumlau, Lavaria and Mascylla, officially referred to as the Assembly of Nations Peacekeeping Force in Finstria (ANPFIF), invaded Finstria. As a peacekeeping mission of the Assembly of Nations, it was tasked with implementing Assembly of Nations Security Council Resolution 812, in response to events during the Finstrian insurgency: preventing a recurrence of fighting following national violence between the Eisenring regime and rebellious factions, contributing to the maintenance and restoration of law and order and facilitating a broad return to normal conditions, while also overseeing a political shift of power and the dismantlement of the country's dictatorship.
