During WWIII, the Battle of Korea, also known as the Fall of Korea, was the successful Chinese invasion of the Korean peninsula. The first phase of the battle begun the morning of April 2, 2037 with the North Korean invasion of South Korea and the detonation of two tactical nuclear warheads on American bases in Onsan and Gunsan. During the first day the North Koreans were able to approach the outskirts of Seoul, but their outdated and weak army and air force are quickly destroyed and repelled by South Korean and American forces. North Korean military and industry are devastated during the first 72 hours of war due to the attacks of the Allied air forces. On the night of April 5, Pyongyang fell into Allied hands. Erroneous intelligence indicated that the North Korean government planned to exile in China and that the remaining government and military leadership are located in the border village of Hangeok, and combat drones attacked false targets in the village and in the Chinese city of Yuanbao (on the ohter side of the border) killing 1,907 Chinese citizens, causing the statement war by China -and consequently by the TTO- to the U.S. and South Korea. This triggered the declaration of war by NATO to the TTO.
The second phase, began on 6 April 2037, ending in the defeat of Korea. The battle consisted of two main operations. In the first, Feng Xiongshu, Chinese air force undertook a massive air attack to military bases, industrial facilities in South Korea and American aircraft carriers (on April 15th, China sink the aircraft carrier USS Gerald R Ford and on April 16th the newly assigned USS John F Kennedy) to cut off and decimate enemy forces that had advanced into North Korean territory.
With Allied forces decimated, China launched a second operation, Tiequan, which was commenced on 17 April. Initially the depleted Allied forces put up stiff resistance, but Chinese air superiority and highly mobile and well organized operation, gradually overwhelmed Allied positions. Chinese forces outflanked the line that Allies formed between Seoul and the border and pushed deeper into South Korea as their forces began to collapse. Chinese forces arrived in an undefended Seoul on 9 May.
On 15 May, an armistice was signed between South Korea and China while North Korea remained under Chinese occupation, which resulted in the unification of Korea (under Chinese control) for first time in almost than a century, the territory would be managed by Jen Park-Sung's administration (as a Chinese puppet state). The Korean peninsula remained under Chinese occupation until the sign of the Treaty of Rapanui.
