Union of Progressive Peoples

Upp-portait2.png

The Union of Progressive Peoples (UPP) are the rivals of the United Americas in many aspects. They're highly trained socialist soldiers, ready to fight for the UPP. And their goal is to eliminate anyone who are against the UPP.

A wide-reaching and powerful socialist authoritarian state, the UPP acts as the political and ideological rival of the United States and the UA. Though they have a relatively large presence on Earth (particularly in the Eastern sphere), the UPP is also largely active in colonizing the frontier. While the United Americas have never engaged the UPP in an official war, hostilities broke out between a USCM Task Force and a UPP Expeditionary Force during the Tientsin Campaign in mid 2165. Though the engagement ended in a ceasefire, over fears that the conflict would spread to the more densely populated Sol System, the incident greatly enraged many senior officials in the UPP, who viewed the battle of Tientsin as an attempt by the United States to annex UPP sovereign territory. “Such an insult (referring to Tientsin) can only be repaid in American blood. Mark my words, this will happen”, Colonel Ganbaatar of the UPP Armed Forces was quoted as saying in May 2168.

Fleets

1st Fleet The First Fleet of the UPP Navy is the oldest and most funded due to the importance of Sol and the constant agitation in the Cold War against the UA and RESS which the UPP stands strongly against. its history stretches back to the very first colonies established in Sol on the moons of major planets, as opposed to on major worlds such as Mars which had already been fully claimed by the UA and RESS. The Fleet saw its first major military operations during the Sol Campaign where vessels beneath the fleet raised the black flag and raided UA and RESS supply-lines as pirate vessels loosely organized in hit-and-run tactics to hamper the allied powers of UA and RESS from responding to the Mars Crisis effectively. The Fleet now serves as the guard of the UPP's capital and is constantly reinforced in order to match its rivals.
2nd Fleet The Second Fleet saw its creation during the early phases of the Sol Campaign, with the First Fleet engaging in piracy activities against UPP's rivals the Second Fleet filled the role of a defensive fleet that oversaw the protection of UPP assets and space. Following the end of the Sol Campaign the Second Fleet would be the primary space force in the colonization of the frontiers by the communist nation. Due to missing out on the space race it'd be tasked with the escort of large colonization vessels to frontier worlds in order to spread the UPP's borders further across the galaxy. The Fleet would see its first actual combat in the Tientsin Campaign where it deployed a task-force in a joint operation with the Third Fleet to meet the UA's military forces head on for the first time since the start of the Cold War. The Fleet is currently stationed on the inner-colony border along the UA-UPP arm.

History

The Union of Progressive Peoples (U.P.P.) was formed from major nations such as Russia, China, and India after failures for democracy to carry the large poverty-struck populations which often suffered from famine and disease due to overpopulation. The idea of communism promised equality, the abolition of society's ranking structure in terms of wealth income, and for all men and women underneath its banner to be equal. The Communist nation quickly became both the U.A an R.E.S.S's rival in world affairs, now standing on equal footing in their attempt to dominate as the world power and ideology. Various minor skirmishes and close calls with nuclear arsenals set the tense stage for the Cold War which would last up until even the modern day.


Unlike U.A and R.E.S.S the U.P.P was very late to the space race and failed to colonize any major worlds such as Titan and Mars. As a result the Communist nation was forced to settle with moons of the Sol System and extend outwards towards the frontiers, away from the more habitable and resource-rich planets which its rivals were able to monopolize and capitalize on. Instead of finding worlds which the nation could properly colonized they instead searched for worlds in-between. Rather then colonizing the service the U.P.P had colonies established underneath the surface of the planets. However, as a result overpopulation and crowding became a major issue due to having to live underground rather then above. It was not uncommon for there to be civil unrest or food riots, but most quickly fell to the communist party's might before it could become a major international issue.


It was not until the Sol Campaign where the U.P.P saw its first opportunity against its rivals and a chance to gain strategic holdings in Sol on mars with the outbreak of war between the colonial world and its overlord governments. The First Fleet of the Communist Navy was quickly rallied beneath a black flag and engaged in both piracy and supply runs to the Mars Government which credited heavily to the early success of Mars in the war and heavy casualties on the side of the allied U.A and R.E.S.S. There was also rumor of U.P.P Commando involvement in ground battles and training of the militia but no sources have ever been confirmed or declassified. The conflict eventually ended with U.A/R.E.S.S victory however it was only a pyrrhic victory due to the massive amount of warships and lives lost far outweighed what was expected to be a speedy put-down of a minor rebellion.


The U.P.P saw massive success in the Sol Campaign with both of its rivals heavily wounded and in economic recovery, the idea of espionage and fanning the flames of rebellion where its rival militaries could not reach quickly became the covert doctrine of the nation's military strategies. Tientsin would become the next operation with the overthrowing of the colonial government in a coup d'etat, aligning the world with the UPP. However, the communist military did not expect a fierce war that would drag out for decades by the now heavily funded USCM. The two militaries would engage in conflict for nearly five years for the planet, resulting in the planet's devastation and heavy losses to both sides. The end result saw the usage of nuclear weaponry and the withdrawal of both sides. The U.P.P began to re-evaluate its strategies as they did not anticipate a rival force able to respond as quickly as the USCM did so far from Sol.


The year is 2190, instead of involving themselves directly after the disaster at Tientstin where they underestimated the fighting patriotic spirit of the USCM, the U.P.P has instead opted for a similar strategy employed during the Sol Campaign. The nation has begun covertly selling weaponry and training militias under the banner of the Colonial Liberation Front (C.L.F) in Tychon's Rift Sector. The communists using a gas giant designated MV-35 in the Anglo-Japanese Arm of the Tychon's Rift sector under the command of Colonel Ganbaatar garrisoned by the Smoldering Sons (six hundred able-bodied soldiers, strong) standby and await for the USCM to retreat from the sector as it becomes clear they grow weaker by the day. So when the time comes the U.P.P will be able to spring forth and claim the rich and habitable planets in the name of the Union Of Progressive Peoples.

Divisions

Do not expect to climb these ranks without a serious dedication to the cause.

Standard

Role Description
UPP Standard.png
Private | Pvt.
Enlisted or conscripted into the armed forces, these Standard UPP soldiers are the core and brunt of the UPP forces, armed and equipped with a standard Type 71 Pulse Rifle and their UM 5 Personal armor, these fanatical soldiers are a force to be reckoned with.
UPP Medic.png
Korporal | Kpl.
These trained men and women have access to an array of standard issued UPP medical items akin to their USCM counterparts. While combat is not their focus, they are armed with their old but reliable Type 71 Carbine as a quick response to any threat.
UPP Heavy.png
Serzhant | Szh.
UPP Specialists are better trained and armed than their standard counterpart. Equipped with special heavy UPP armor that is capable of withstanding a significant amount of damage, and equipped with the formidable GSh-7.62 rotary machine gun, UPP Specialists are not to be taken lightly by even the most robust of marines.
UPP Leader.png
Master Serzhant | MSzh.
The commander of the UPP force, the UPP Leader is charged with executing whatever mission the UPP have assigned the squad. They are equipped with mostly standard issue UPP equipment, though the Leader wears similar armor to the UPP Specialist.
