In the wake of the upheaval in Russia
, a series of small brushfire wars have ignited around the globe. One of the deadliest being the resumption of hostilities between the forces of Ethiopia
and Eritrea, which have been spurred on by a coup in Addis Ababa. Armed with the latest Russian weaponry, and led by General Tesfaye Wolde, the Ethiopian military makes a grab for the Eritrean coastline. This sudden Ethiopian offensive sends the Eritreans into a swift retreat.
Shipping on the Red Sea ceases. Relief efforts on the interior come to a swift halt. At the request of the Eritrean government, an international coalition is formed to combat the violence plaguing the two countries. The Ghosts are once again called to action to lead the charge as the spearhead of the operational forces. Armed with new weapons and new specialists it's up to them to push the Ethiopian military back across the border.
