Chian's history between the years of 1860 and 1900 is nothing to be impressed with as this is the time when the nation began to find itself in the world.
History 1900-1920 Edit
After establishing itself as a nation, Chian a peaceful nation and only delt with the odd attacks from the other Chinese factions.
World war 1 1914-18 Edit
With the onset of World war 1, or as it was known as the 'European war' in Chian, the nation produced weapons for the Allies before joining them in 1916. Focusing on the eastern front during the war, the nation was intrested in the new style of warfare and new vehicles such as the tank. Unknown to the rest of the world, the Chianese military was planning of a massive expantion into neighboring factions.
The main equipment of the Chian military was concidered to be basic at best. Nither good, nor bad but their training was concidered to be supirior to the allies. Dueing the first few years of the war, each soldier was armed with a british lee enfield. But close to the end shipments of the USA's Browning automatic rifles were issued with the intent of outfitting the enitre army with the weapon.
However this came with dwarbacks as the weapon was heavy and the magazine was only 20 rounds. The rushed production of the weapon also had factors to play with this making the army woefully ill equipped near the end of the war.
History 1918-1930 Edit
After the ill equpping of the army one of the factions decided to attack Chian. This was a mixed bag as while the army was ill equipped they were stilled well trained and had the newly produced MkVIII C tank. Unlike others of it's type, this one had a top mounted turret offering it more offensive capabilities.
