2017 Storyline:

North Korean Artillery Strike Kills 50 Near Incheon

In a predawn attack by North Korean forces, a massive artillery barrage struck dug-in U.S. and South Korean positions outside of Incheon. The artillery strike preceded an assault by Chinese mechanized infantry, the secondary attack was quickly repelled by South Korean air support with minimal coalition casualties reported.

The South Korean city of Incheon has been a hotly contested region during the course of the war, with it's proximity to the DMZ and large transportation network by air, land, and sea making it an appealing target for North Korean and Chinese forces and a vital supply route for coalition troops.

Prime Minister Malcom Turnbull Announces Australian Support For Coalition Forces

In a televised address, Australian Prime Minister Malcom Turnbull announced Australia's intention of joining the joint United States-South Korean military coalition operating on the Korean Peninsula. Australia has offered the use of military bases and airfields by coalition forces as well as a contingent of 10,000 troops, military advisors and air support for ground operations.

Prime Minister Turnbull stated that the growing levels of violence in the war, the destabilizing nature of the conflict, and a massive refugee crisis as Australia's reason for entering, saying; "Australia is concerned with saving the lives of coalition forces and preserving the nature of representative government. By allowing this conflict to continue, it will ultimately move our direction, we have no option but to act."

Chuncheon Again Under Siege By Chinese Troops

Elements of the U.S. 8th Army along with South Korean 703rd Special Assault Regiment are fortifying in and around the rubble of Chuncheon. Recent intelligence verified by aerial reconnaissance shows large numbers of Chinese infantry within 10 kilometers of the DMZ near the border of Gangwon province.

UNICEF aid workers along with Doctors Without Border's personnel have been quickly trying to evacuate civilians and all non-military personnel from the city in the rapidly worsening situation. The evacuation of civilians and refugees has been hampered by the deteriorating conditions of roads and railways leading in and out of the city.

USS Carl Vinson Carrier Strike Group Moves Towards Korean Peninsula

In a strong show of support for American and South Korean forces, President Donald Trump has ordered the USS Carl Vinson Carrier Strike Group to assist ground operations in the region. On his twitter account the president said that; “this war has gone on for far too long. It is unfortunate that myself and my administration have inherited this mess. The time has come to act and end this once and for all.”

The carrier strike group, also known as ‘Carrier Strike Group 1’ includes an aircraft carrier with fighter aircraft, attack helicopters, guided missile cruisers, destroyers, and a complete complement of crews. It is expected that the USS Carl Vinson will be a strong show power projection as well as supporting ground forces, by doing so the U.S. president hopes to force the Chinese and North Korean government's back to the negotiating table.

North Korean Forces Maintain Hold on Sariwon Against Coalition Assault

In a military operation that has lasted for months, North Korean forces have successfully been able to hold the the city of Sariwon against South Korean and American troops. Despite aerial bombardment and unquestionable air superiority, allied coalition progress has been limited to the outer suburbs of the city and pockets of industrial areas.

American and South Korean commanders anticipated stiff resistance from North Korean troops operating in the city, the KPA I Corp along with elements of the 105th Armored Division continue to maintain full control of the city. Roadblocks and landmines that have been erected on all main routes in and out of the city provide a challenge for coalition forces attempting to enter.
