In 2016, the fictive 6th french republic introduced the Espadon, designed by Salasx , a fictive corporation who cooperated with Dassault Aviation, Airbus helicopter and Thales to design a lightweight, low noise, fast and stealth helicopter able to be deployed from a warship .
Initially using a fictive navalised variant of the Tiger , the French navy requested a small helicopter, that would fight in low intensity combat zones and that could also carry a small payload and a 30mm machinegun . This helicopter wasn't designed to carry a lot of weapon, it had to attack quickly a target and return safely to the home ship .

3 prototypes were made, with one being similar to the S-97 . Only the latest had the low noise attributes needed .
Unfortunaly, unlike expectations, the helicopter was 1.6 heavier than planned, and way bigger than expected, but it's insane speed , it's low noise flight attributes and it's efficient stealth convinced Salasx to produce thoses .
Initially, 3 helicopters were made for the Serie 1 , followed by 36 helicopters from the serie 2 .
During the war against terrorism, the Espadon proven to be a perfect helicopter for black operations, quickly gaining notoriety for it's unpreceded attributes . In the beginning of the 2030s, the design started to become obsolete, but whatever, Salasx had acquired the knowledge for a newer design .

In 2014, the french government expressed it's positive opinion for a french built Anti-Air system . Quickly, MBDA was hired to work on a missile that could be made only with french components, while some europeans neighbors were hostile for a french only project, MBDA had no choice than accept . Quickly, they conceived a high quality prototype, the BMSA-2X6 , it was tested against remotely operated jets that were decomissionned and proved to be a capable system . The BMSA - 26 then entered production .
Today, the BMSA - 26 never saw conflict, and army experts says it will never . Whatever, the french government invested massively to upgrade it's hardware and quickly became convinced they shouldn't rely on a single foreign component .
With this objective espressed, France started to invest in factories for every singles components for the French army . from components of pistols and rifles to components of Submarines and jets . This started a new era for the french army . And this also allowed them to sell even more material as countries such as the US would not be able to prevent components from being sold to nations .

With the increasing russian armed forces, and the new conflicts of the XXIth century, Norway seeked to buy additional tanks to cooperate with it's Leopard 2A4NO , However, a new norwegian general interfered and suggested to build Norway's own main battle tank .
The program started in 2008, Quickly, Norway asked Nexter and KMW to help to design an indigenous design .
After 10 years, the NKT-2 "Fafnir" entered service, it was considered a very good tank , especially for a country who never designed any MBT before .
More than 76 Units were built for Norway and several countries showed interest for this tank . Sadly, it also became known as the most expensive MBT along with the leclerc as few units were bought .
The tanks didn't enjoyed much the heat waves that would proliferate at the end of 2010s and that would reduce it's operationnal availability , it would be upgraded to suffer less but this major flaw would eventually only be fixed with the HTK-2A2 Fafnir, an upgrade that would be added in 2023 .
With the first norwegian tank made, Norwegian leaders became convinced other vehicles could be homemade , and thus started several norwegian programs for new armored vehicles .

by the end of 2018 , the alternate Comoros had a better economy than in real life, with most immigration problems solved between 2011 and 2015 , France started to help Comoros to stabilize and it slowly but surely started to attract tourists . The Comoros started to esperience a good GDP Growth and in the beginning of 2019, Comoros bought 7 Mirage 2000 to France, that were being decomissioned , at a correct price . In exchange of a minor modernisation of the systems, of the infrastructure building and of the training, Comoros would accept to recognize Mayotte as a french departement and would agree to buy 70 % of it's military material from france .
Most peoples felt Comoros had been tricked but common peoples there thought it would allow the country to protect itself and local soldiers quickly loved the beast .
