Tracer-ammo lit up the sky and fighter jets were drawing trails of chaff and flares behind them. The two soldiers instinctively got down a bit as a F22 flew over, not even two-hundred meters above them, an EF 2000 not far behind him, firing his canon.
"Shit. That this would escalate so quickly. Parts of the city allready look like we are back in 1945." one soldier said, holding the EADS-Bullseye-MANPAD on his shoulder. This MANPAD was nearly identical to the US-Stinger system, only that the warhead was about 1 kilogramm smaller, and the range had been extended by nearly two kilometers compared to the American counterpart, as was the maximum speed.
The other soldier, the observer for the first one, spit his chewing tobacco into the next gully.
"Yeah, man. Now the crap really has hit the fan. But from what I've heard we are even lucky. Paris or London were hit much worse. London looks just like after the Blitz, the Buckingham Palace is on fire and the Eifel Tower is down too." He looked around, searching for possible helicopter attacks like in Canada, just as did the short-range radar on the Boxer-wheeltank with its AA-gun to their side, drawing its circles and scaning the sky for any threats.
The other soldier looked around, seeing a group of frightened civilians that were were running for all it was worth, escorted by two police-officers to the next subway-station.
All of a sudden the radar of the tank stopped its circular movement, fixing on an object to the side of the soldier's view.
"OH CRAP! WARTHOG! THREE O'CLOCK!"
The AA tank started firing but the machine was allready too near, overshooting the group and directly towards its target. The turret of the tank followed suit and did not stop firing, hot cartridge cases were expelled and hitting the asphalt. But just a few bullets hit the Tankbuster, black smoke errputing from one engine.
But it was too late. The A10 dropped its deadly cargo, several 200 pound bombs. Some missed. But even more did not, hitting the decade old building. It was like the bombs had went off in all parts of the building at the same time, shattering every piece of glass of the building, including the world famous dome on its top, a representation for the openess of the policy of this nation(at least that is what it's supposed to look like) .
"HOLY MOTHER MARY AND JOSEPH. EAGLE'S NEST HAS BEEN HIT, I REPEAT EAGLE'S NEST IS DOWN!" the observer yelled into his radio.
The other soldier did not loose a second, readying his MANPAD on his shoulder and getting the enemy machine into his sight.
" EAT LEAD, TRAITOR! he yelled as he pulled the trigger, sending the missile on its way.
By who also commisioned this picture.
Holy Peanut Butter! Why America? I thought we were allies!
It's pretty much obvious what you see in the picture but in case you wish to have it on written, the USA has made of Berlin another shooting gallery. A-10s and F-22s dropping their bombs everywhere as the Bundeswehr makes a desperate effort to fend off the attack. Unfortunately it was not enough to prevent the Reichstag building from getting a new remodeling. @_@
This is all part of a story MTT3008 is writing in which the NATO alliance collapses and the US goes to war with the rest of the alliance.
HAHA! You didn't see that coming! did ya? First picture ever with Americans as the antagonists!
Finally after months of lying around in my drawing desk I got around to finish it..... several weeks ago! Pretty much the last month was spent working on this project. I had both loads of fun as well as some days in which I just wanted to just be done with it. Drawing the Reichstag on paper was a b*tch. Not gonna sugarcoat that part. But I'm extremely happy that this picture turned out the way it has. This may very well be my best work ever (For now ).
BTW, this may not be the last time I draw the Reichstag in dure circumstances. But no promises for the near future.
I'm sorry for the long delay but when 2013 started, I kinda wasted my time playing Kerbal Space Program. And then I teamed up again with a few friends for that comic project and then came the whole learn how to use After-effects and here we are, almost about to hit June. Hopefully I can do my future projects at a much faster pace and not relapse again into another art/motivation block.
I hope you guys like it. Even if it's the yanks causing trouble this time.
Next is the art trade with
See'ya in the Battlefield!
Reason: American Main Battle Tank would rip through German armor with ease, a EF 2000 would never be able to keep up with a F-22. What A-10 committed was dumb, he could have just shot the AA-gun with a Hellfire missile from a distance. Along with using the 30mm gun in strafing runs need to start from a distance.
America would definitively trash Germany on a 1 on 1 war but not because of the reasons you've stated. America has the superior military in terms of numbers and assets to sustain a long and prolongued overseas conflict well beyond its territories while maintaining a stable security condition in the homeland and even a few more frontlines. That's a strategic superiority no country on earth currently has. It's Naval and Air Powers have an ability to airlift large amounts of troops around the globe and to also keep them well supplied at all times.
Germany on the other hand, has a rather minuscule army. Little more than a shadow of what it used to be at the end of the Cold War. It doesn't have the same strategic airlift ability of the US, it doesn't have bombers, aircraft carriers not even destroyers.
America obviously has the strongest military. However, on technological terms I'd say Germany and the US are rather on par. I'd even go ahead and say Germany has a bit more experience in Armor technology. To suggest that "American Main Battle Tank would rip through German armor with ease" is a gross understatement. The F-22 clearly is a better fighter and in the hands of the best pilots (Which I'll asume they are just for the sake of ensuring the top fighters are in the proper hands) an extremely dangerous machine. The Eurofighter is not be taken lighty however: theaviationist.com/2012/07/23/…
I do agree with the last bit 'though. The A-10 should have knocked off the AA first, THEN hit the other targets. It would have used an AGM-65 Maverick 'though since I've been told that is the usual payload it is given. Hellfires however are indeed able to be mounted on the A-10 hardpoints.
But I got paid to do this pic as exactly as it is..... so I really didn't have a choice there.
In the end I wanted to keep it short and I wrote a wall of text. FML.
In terms of armor, fun fact, the Leopard 2A5 and M1 Abrams are sharing the chassis, I think. That's what my buddy at the Heer told me. This, and the fact, that the Boxer's are mostly in maintenance.
NO AMERICA NO!
The UN begins debate on the sudden outbreak of the war.
- What is it about this controversy? - Asks the chairman of the defense of nations.
- It's revenge - This corresponds one of the deputies.
- But what - is responsible chairman.
- With World War II and the Warsaw Uprising which wdażyly siedokłnie 100 years ago.
- And for the fact that in this war germany murdered over 66 million of Polish nationality. and now Poland after the hundred years to revenge.
I've also seen pictures of some Stinger operators launching the missiles while standing up. Most pictures I've seen where like that. Some pics in google: www.google.com.ar/search?q=Sti…
Lol, made me look twice. Interesting situation, and fantastic depiction! Love the flares, tracers, glass, and smoke!
The socio-political, economic, and overall societal connections the US holds with NATO and the EU would NEVER allow this to happen- at least not for hundreds of years, by which time we would certainly not be using A-10s and F-22s. Also, a A-10 would not usually make a run on incredibly hot zone like that, especially with dedicated anti-air batteries still in operation. Wit ha F-22 in the airspace, the A-10 would DEFINITLY not make such a run as the F-22 has dedicated anti-ground capabilities- and it won't be hit by radar guided anti-air batteries...or has a significantly lesser chance of getting hit.
IM SORRY IM THAT GUY XD
OR... It could be the result of a American political faction that won over command of former US forces stationed in Europe during the Second American Civil War that now opposes NATO for having to send troops over to America as peacekeepers in the video game Shattered Union.
Fortuanately, it would be most unlikely that the current generation of brave US troops would turn their guns on their friends.
Hopefully we will never see such madness! And a very nicely rendered image - Great work!
Quote by George Carlin: Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups. Especially when greedy sociopaths gets to decide what they think.
What likely happened in Benghazi is that the US government has drones ready to strike but for once didn't, because letting the ambassador and a few others die was the most politically convenient solution.
Captain O have in general increased drone strikes to increase muslim anger and arms islamists (events in Libya or Syria did not start in 2011, there have been some major planning and agreements before that), while at home political correctness is pushed forth more than ever.
They are likely deliberately trying to make it easier for Islamic attacks to occure and if you wonder why they would do such a thing, just remember everything that followed 9/11, Patriot Act, Homeland Security and so on.
They are just as many rabid neo-con on the american left than on the right, if not even more. It is just that, so far, they have just been better able to hidde their game.
It's unlikely that one day we'll get a US president ala that President from the film "Escape from LA". But yeah there are some pretty wicked religious conservatives in the US goverment, specially in the congress. Heck, we might have been in that phase already. George Bush was pretty conservative and I think he once refered himself as a crusader (Gotta check back on that).
But in light of the recent NSA spying scandal as well as its apparent unreliability as an ally, the US may be on its way to loose several countries that have been considered as solid allies. And it didnt took a Religious conservative to do that. *Looks at Obama* Yes, Im looking at you Barry!
