ZAC 2038 The imperial army begins their assault. An imperial elite force surrounds a republic radio base near Barnum River and the personal of the base attempt to escape in the Ultrasaurus. With an every-direction attack the tables are turned and the escape succeeds.
Five elite republic units bring the empire’s advance at Red River’s west bank to a standstill and the war is deadlocked. The republic army drafts a strategy that lands the Ultrasaurus unit at the west side of Miebaros Bay on imperial territory so it can directly attack the imperial frontline command HQ. The operation is a success and the imperial army takes serious damage.
ZAC 2039 Fall of the Zenebas Empire capital city. The republic army encircles the imperial capital. The bombardment and raids extend for many days at the marble capital on Mt Gareki, named White Town. With Ultrasaurus at the centre, the republic battalion break into the capital.

ZAC 2042 Emperor Zenebas announces the Republic Advance Strategy. They execute a surprise attack with Cardinal—custom Iguan airborne troops lead by Lt Col. Frost—in order to secure the Almerhen bridge, a bridge that crosses the Barnum River that flows along the border. The strategy is a success and the bridge falls into the hands of the imperial army.
The battlefield spreads to the republic woodlands that cross over the central mountain range. Col. Erikson deploys the republic’s first high-speed Zoid, Shield Liger. The personal high-speed task force supports the front.
ZAC 2043 Shield Liger surprise attack strategy. The Blue Pirates (the republic’s micro-type Zoid command force) discover parts of a new large Zoid in an imperial army truck they had attacked. The republic army, full of fear, has Col. Erikson lead the high-speed task force to wage a kamikaze attack at a research lab inside imperial territory. However the imperial army blows up the lab and the strategy fails.
ZAC 2044 The empire finally completes its strongest Zoid, the Death Saurer; developed to stand up against the Ultrasaurus. At once the military balance slants toward the imperial side. The Death Saurer completely crushes all Gojulas, Gojulas Mk II and Shield Liger units in its way and advances with its sights set on the republic capital city.
Ultrasaurus Vs Death Saurer. Approaching the republic capital, 2nd Lt. Toby Duncan’s Death Saurer is ambushed by Col. Erikson’s Ultrasaurus. The battle ends with the Death Saurer’s victory and Col. Erikson’s death. 2nd Lt. Duncan’s spirit is also deeply wounded.
Fall of the republic capital city. The imperial army break into the the republic capital. However President Helic takes decisive tunnel operation actions and both people and soldiers have already escaped. The empire’s plan is in vain. A custom Shield Liger destroys the tunnel and blocks the pursuit of the Death Saurer.
December The republic army’s counterattack begins. With their whereabouts concealed after the fall of the capital, the republic army uses custom Gorhecks to kamikaze attack the republican northern Cook Naval Base that is under imperial occupation. The imperial northern fleet of Sea Panther and Wardick were annihilated. The pursuing imperial units are destroyed by the ‘Ultrasaurus substitution operation’ that uses two presidential Ultrasauruses.
ZAC 2045 The activity of the substitute President Helic rises morale between the people of the republic army while struggling against the Death Saurer. Guerrilla warfare develops all across the continent. The republic navy ensures a marine transport route around the republic territory costal area as well as around the islands on the outskirts, and units pass through the seas freely.
March Generals of the republic army enact Death Saurer capture operations by attacking together in Ultrasauruses and Salamanders but the strategy is too ill-prepared and it ends in failure when cooperation doesn’t go smoothly.
May Battle of Florecio Ocean. President Helic plans to move to the main central mountain range. They execute tactics that would make a clean sweep of the imperial navy located in Florecio Ocean in the south. The imperial army, caught by a small unmanned decoy Zoid, is annihilated by the aircraft Ultrasaurus and Pteras fleets spearheaded by Admiral Linderman. The reinforcement Reddra units are also damaged by the Pteras. The republic army acquires control of the whole Florecio Ocean.
June President Helic abduction tactics. Capt. Franz Haltman of the imperial army uses the Death Saurer as bait and infiltrates a secret base on a small island in Florecio Ocean where Helic lives underground. Capt. Haltman tries to abduct the president but is stopped by the presidential bodyguards (the republic’s new 24 Zoids). The abduction tactics are a failure.
July The republic begins movement to the central mountain range. The republic army implements a strategy to land them at Germandy Peninsula on the southern tip of the central continent. Before this, they carry out the Ultrasaurus diversion strategy to lure out the single Death Saurer stationed there. A diversionary force with an Ultrasaurus at the centre advance to Diepp, the shore opposite Germandy. The force cause devastation and the diversionary tactics are a success. The Death Saurer also fights determinedly but is finally crushed by the main landing unit, and the republic army captures Germandy Peninsula.
August One-by-one, the republic army transfers battle power to the central mountain range via the sea route. The battle stage moves from a moor area to a mountain area and the leading part of the battle changes from large Zoids, unable to make tight turns, to nimble medium-sized Zoids.
September The republic army advances from the south of the central mountain range to the north. The southern mountain road that links the imperial Illusion City and the republic Eshmi Port is put under republic control.
October The republic army continues north. They succeed in dividing the Middle Highway that crosses the centre of the continent.
Imperial army mountain base siege. The republic army encircles the empire’s largest base on the central mountain range. Supported by the hard winter, Emperor Zenebas gathers hope, but the republic army stays in the drawn-out war thanks to a supply line along a secret mountain road, called ‘Helic Route’, and the Emperor’s plan is put out of place. There is a shortage of goods at the imperial base when it has its supply line severed. The Death Saurer that is called for reinforcement is hindered by the advance of the Zoid Mammoth from the north.
ZAC 2046 Republic counterattack operations begin.
March Fall of the empire’s mountain base. In order for the republic to see a conclusion to the siege battle, they transport 5 Ultras along Helic Route. The imperial base is trampled by an avalanche and Ultra’s huge build. They finally surrender.

The Helic army at the southern end of the mountain range begins advancing to the moor that is occupied by the empire, but come too close to a unit that is advancing along Red River and are surrounded. In this crisis Helic, along with his bodyguard Rosa, sortie in the Kentauros. The unit succeeds in escaping.
Kentauros vs Death Dog. The republic HQ, short on hands, is annihilated by a kamikaze attack of Capt. Franz’s custom Death Saurer, Death Dog, who invades deep into enemy territory to kill Helic. When Kentauros returns, a battle unfolds between it and the Death Dog. It ends in a simultaneous attack by both Zoids. The pilots survive.
October–November The republic army advances to the moor. On the morning of the holiday of the 23rd year anniversary of the fall of the republic capital, the republic army initiates counterattack operations in empire-occupied territory across the whole nation. In the battle that extends for 2 years, the exhausted imperial army continues to retreat as the supply line from their homeland isn't getting past the mountain road at the northernmost part of the central mountain range.
December 31 President Helic’s marriage. At 89 years old, Helic marries the female bodyguard leader, Rosa Laurie. This longitivtiy of life is unique to Zoidians.
ZAC 2047 April The republic army undertakes operations to rescue Professor Harvard Lee Chester the developer of the Ultrasaurus, who had become a prisoner of war at the republic capital city. The rescue unit secretly infiltrates the capital and, although they encounter the Death Saurer during their escape, successfully rescue the magnificent Professor Chester. The professor immediately starts work on developing a new anti-Death Saurer Zoid.
June Great Sabre rollout. In order to desperately defend the central mountain range supply line that was the lifeline to the troops occupying republic territory, the empire completes the Great Sabre, a variant of the Sabre Tiger improved for mountain battles. Bear Fighter and Shield Liger are beaten at their own games and the operations the republic army are undertaking the stop the imperial supply line end in failure.
August The safety of Professor Chester is essential for new Zoid development so two eccentric officers, Capt. Louis and Maj. Marchen, present their ‘Cooking Stove and Swallow’ strategy to the president. The president approves this ‘absurd strategy’. The two men are in charge of the ‘Cooking Stove’ part of the strategy; the president himself is in charge of the ‘Swallow’.
Louis and Marchen become generals and embark on the ‘Cooking Stove’ strategy. They lead a construction unit to a small island in Florecio Ocean, establish Bomber Base and underground factory, and enough outdoor toilets for 10,000 people were built all over the island. After the completion of the base the construction unit secretly escapes the island.
November Volcanic island battle. There is no reason for the imperial army to overlook construction of this degree—the small island is Professor Chester’s secret research lab—they would keep an eye on it. From the number of outdoor toilets the imperial army calculates the republic garrison to number 10,000 people and dispatches a large army of 40,000 lead by a Death Saurer. Louis and Marchen thrust the Death Saurer down into a crater and crush it. The imperial army crushes the base just as they planned and find the island—a long way from empire territory—empty. They return after wasting extensive time and resources. The ‘Cooking Stove’ strategy is a huge success.
President Helic and wife Rosa give birth to a son. Emperor Zenebas sends his nephew the bracelet he had received from his older brother Helic in their childhood. The bracelet is engraved with writing. “I give this to the person I love the most”, it says.
‘Swallow’ strategy put into operation. Professor Chester, escaping imperial eyes, develops a special specification Salamander that has had its insides remodelled. In accordance to the plan, 3 above-ground labs produce new Zoid prototypes of it.
December Clash of the remodelled forces. Both armies develop Mk-II units. A violent battle brews.
ZAC 2048 January Imperial Maj. Michael Hobart (engineer) completes the Death Saurer bomber specification machine, Death Bird, and it bombs a republic research lab.
Death Bird surprise attack tactics fail. Two days after the aerial bombing, the republic army sends airborne troops with a customised Salamander to the Death Bird’s base, intending to destroy the Death Bird, but a custom Death Saurer, Death Shadow, intercepts them and the troop is annihilated.
September The empire’s large counterattack commences. The imperial army release the 24-Zoid Gorem, developed by Maj. Hobart, to the front lines and begin an offensive to recapture the central mountain range. Professor Chester, who feels a crises drawing near, returns above ground and commands new Zoid development.
October Mad Thunder rollout. The republic army successfully develop the Mad Thunder, an anti-Death Saurer large Zoid made by Professor Chester. The central mountain range falls into crisis. President Helic sends the full power of his air force to support his mountain troops that are surrounded by the imperial army, and the Mad Thunder charges to the republic capital city. Dangerous operations on both fronts.
Fall of the imperial army’s front line base. At the north gateway to the capital, the Mad Thunder breaks into the imperial army’s front line base. It destroys the fortress and the feared custom Kong, ‘the Demon at the Top of the Tower’.
December Recapture of the republic capital city. Before the capital city the Mad Thunder and the Death Fighter, a custom Death Saurer piloted by Maj. Hobart, clash. The battle ends with the Mad Thunder’s victory. Thanks to that, the republic army breaks into the capital and crushes the imperial army. They finally succeed in freeing the capital city. At the same time, republic mountain troops and air force support that are under siege on the central mountain range shoot the siege net and turn to counterattack.
ZAC 2050 at the end of the year The imperial army, defeated everywhere by the republic army, flees. The republic army finally reaches the imperial capital and the Mad Thunder division surround the city.
ZAC 2051 January 8 The imperial capital falls for the second time. The Mad Thunder division invades the capital city. Zenebas escapes the capital and the city falls.
March Downfall of the Zenebas Empire. Emperor Zenebas and his surviving troops barricade themselves on Nicados Island in the Daras Ocean. The republic army lands on the island, crush the imperial army and capture their fortress. Emperor Zenebas flees to the dark continent and requests support from the Guylos Empire army (dark army) that rules there. However the Guylos Empire turns their attack to Zenebas’ Death Saurer. The Guylos Empire absorbs the surviving military force of the Zenebas Empire and proclaims war against the republic. This marks the end of the Central Continent War.
Inter-Continent War
ZAC 2051 The Inter-Continent War begins. President Helic, who had obtained information of the ‘Ultimate Weapon’ being developed by the dark army, declares war against the Guylos Empire. The empire, burning with ambition the conquer the central continent, sends a mysterious energy from deep within the dark continent to Delpoi and a strange phenomenon occurs. The republic army decides to advance to the unknown dark continent.
October The republic army puts the first dark continent landing strategy into operation. The landing force, with Sea Mad and Mad Fly at the centre, start out. However the landing force is intercepted by the Guylos Empire's powerful Zoids and are annihilated. The operations end in a tragic failure.
ZAC 2052 June The republic army’s dark continent landing operations are a success. They develop a large flying mothership, Turtle Ship, based on analysis data from a Whale Kaiser they had shot down. The second dark continent landing strategy begins. Thanks to the Gunblusters’ efforts the landing strategy is a success and the republic army assembles at the landing site, a beachhead named Entrance Bay.
November Pursuing the ‘Ultimate Weapon’ being developed by the dark army, the republic army attacks a weapon factory in the mountains, 800 km from Entrance Bay. A dark army style Kong appears from inside the factory and, firing in a gigantic halo, blows a Shield Liger Mk-II cleanly in half. The republic army trembles in fear at that glimpse of the power of the ‘Ultimate Weapon’.
ZAC 2053 The republic army advances to the dark continent inland. The republic army reorganises their forces and change their ensign. Though hindered by the complex terrain of the dark continent, they continue to advance to the interior of the continent, lead by the Mad Thunder division.
October The Guylos Empire finally completes their ‘Ultimate Weapon’, the Gil Vader. The Mad Thunder division receives serious damage and the republic advance guard units inevitably retreat.
The Gil Vader crosses the ocean and bombs the republic capital. The republic sends their main force from the dark continent but are unable to conduct an effective counterattack. The republic suffers 80,000 casualties.
ZAC 2054 February Gil Vader destruction operations. The republic army calculates the location of the Gil Vader’s base and, immediately following the return of the Gil Vader, they try to destroy it. Faced with Gil Vader’s overwhelming power, the strategy fails.
May Mad Thunder fleet defeated. They Guylos Empire army snatches mastery of the air and the republic army's air supply line is completely stopped. The dark continent expeditionary force is run down at Entrance Bay and meet a great crisis.
In order to rescue the expeditionary force, President Helic customises all 35 surviving Mad Thunders for sea battle at Admiral Belger’s suggestion. They cross the ocean and at once disguise their numerical inferiority. Furthermore they employ the ‘HZ’ code that had been used by Helic and Zenebas. In spite of this, the Mad Thunder division is intercepted by a waiting custom Gil Vader and is annihilated. But now Helic knew of Zenebas’ existence on the dark continent.
June Orudios rollout. During the crisis, the republic army develop the Orudios. The dark army invoke aerial bombing of major republic cities with the Gil Vader battalion and—on the evening of June 2—the Gil Vaders take off one by one. At the same time, a single prototype Orudios, piloted by the air force’s 1st Lt Roy S Krüger, enters imperial territory and clashes with a Gil Vader. President Helic sends a transmission using the ‘HZ’ code: “500 Orudios have been deployed into battle”. Emperor Guylos recalls the Gil Vader battalion and the aerial bombing is prevented.
ZAC 2055 The republic army, having obtained means to oppose the Gil Vader with the deployment of the Orudios into combat, shifts to counterattack and once more charges toward the interior of the dark continent.
ZAC 2056 ‘Revenge of River’ battle.
President Helic develops the Zenebas rescue strategy. With Orudios at the centre, the new Transfighter Zoid unit, the Zenebas rescue unit, charges toward the dark capital. Meanwhile Emperor Guylos releases the Dark Army Corps, with Gun Gyarado at the core.

The republic army and the Guylos Empire’s final decisive battle on the dark continent: King Gojulas rollout.

President Helic resolutely stands his ground and concentrates surviving units on challenging the dark army in the final decisive battle. The republic army completes the greatest Zoid in history, the King Gojulas. The battle that had alternated between favourable and unfavourable at once slants toward the republic army thanks to the release of the King Gojulas. The Descat unit, operating at dark army bodyguards, stands in the way of the King Gojulas as it approaches the dark capital.

The Great Disaster of Planet Zi
ZAC 2056 A gigantic comet directly hits Planet Zi’s third moon. Fragments fall near the central continent. The central continent is split in three and a part of the dark continent is submerged and it is divided into the Nyx continent and Tulk continent. Battle is now impossible for both armies.
November The Death of Emperor Zenebas. The republic army’s Zenebas rescue operations are at a standstill. Zenebas passes away at the height of the great disaster.
The truce of both armies. With tens of millions of lives lost in the great disaster, war is now out of the question for both armies and the Inter-Continent war ends inconclusively.
At the height of the great disaster, Globally III heads back to earth with both Earthlings and Zoidians on board.
ZAC 2056– The Zoid Planet’s name is changed to Planet Zi. A majority of large Zoids are destroyed in the great disaster. Both powers are heavily burdened with reconstruction work. They develop man-made satellite technology.
The Guylos Empire relocates its capital city from Darkness to Valhalla.
Louise Elena Camford assumes the role of republic president.

First Western Continent War
ZAC 2099 June Regent Prozen, who has control over the Guylos Empire’s parliament and army, declares war against the republic. The army lands on the western continent. The republic also decides to dispatch troops to the western continent. This ends 40 years of peace and the curtain rises on a new war. It is the second inter-continent war and the outbreak of a battle that is names the Western Continent War
August The imperial and republic armies surround Malicrius Lake and Mt Olympus, located in central-north Europa, and finally clash. Confronted with a 3:1 difference in war potential, the republic army is defeated and Malicrius lake slips into imperial hand in the first week of the war.
September The republic army begins counteroffensive tactics. In order to gain control of Mt Olympus the numerically inferior republic army makes the decision the dispatch the independent second high-speed battalion lead by Lt Col. Al G Halford. Their war potential rises and their big counteroffensive tactics begin.
October The imperial army advances revival plans for the Death Saurer in ancient ruins. The Mt Olympus summit falls into the imperial army’s hands. While the republic main force begins to retreat in defeat, their high-speed battalion, lead by Lt Col. Halford, breaks into the summit. It is a large sacrifice—everybody except 1st Lt. Tommy Paris is killed in action—but it hinders the imperial army’s advance and revival of the Death Saurer.
November The republic army, preventing the revival of the Death Saurer, retreat to north Europa’s eastern tip. A surprise attack unit, with Stealth Viper and Guysack, plays an active role and guerrilla warfare develops. The imperial army’s supply line is stretched and the war enters a lull.
ZAC 2100 January Geno Saurer rollout. Based on data of the Organoid System, obtained during the Death Saurer revival plan, the imperial army completes the first new Zoid in 40 years, the Geno Saurer. In competition it defeats the Dark Horn and Great Sabre and is officially adopted into use.

Organoid struggle at Garil Ruins. The republic army sends the first Blade Liger, piloted by Leo Master Maj. Arthur Borgman, in pursuit of the imperial unit. The new Zoids of both armies clash at Garil Ruins. The Geno Saurer gets a hold of a true organoid and it ends up in imperial hands.
May Battle of Red Rust (aka the Desert of Red)
June The republic army mass produce their new Storm Sworder and gains control of the air. They carry out a complete bombing of imperial supply units and the imperial army suffers from a shortage of supplies. On the ground guerrilla warfare develops, headed by the Blade Liger and the surprise attack unit, and the flow begins to slant to the republic side.
Wishing to end the war in its early stages, republic President Louise Elena Camford decides to send the military reserve power that protects the country to Europa, wishing to provide an opportunity to oppose the empire and bring peace. The transportation fleet, loaded with 20 divisions of the mainland army including the main elite Zoid force (referred to as the strongest army corps composed of strengthened Zoids and the president’s bodyguards), starts out from the central continent’s Yubit Bay.
Battle of Deldaros Ocean. The dark army immediately send out the just-revived air-and-sea-use Zoid Sinker battalion. They ambush the republic in Deldaros Ocean. The Sinker unit annihilates the transport fleet, but this was just the decoy Kala Ship. In the air the Neo Turtle Ship, composed of the real transport fleet, opens its deck and the onboard Zoid battalion attack the Sinkers. The Sinker unit is destroyed.
The republic army’s mainland defence unit arrives on Europa. The large reinforcement avoided major damage and succeeds in treading on Europian soil.
The imperial army, having allowed the republic reinforcement units to land on Europa, send their strongest unit—Regent Prozen’s bodyguards, the Prozen Knights—to the western continent.
July Geno Breaker rollout. As a counter measure to the Blade Liger, the imperial army develops the Geno Breaker, and strengthened Geno Saurer.
Second Western Continent War
ZAC 2100 July Second all-out battle. Suffering from a supply shortage, the imperial army plans for a short decisive battle and initiates a general offensive lead by the PK force at the republic army’s Robb Base. During unit reorganisation, the republic army forces a hard fight, but the mercenary unit puts up a good fight. The battle breaks into a drawn-out war. The Empire tries to attack the republic from both sides and the imperial navy, advancing from the sea-side, is intercepted by the new Zoid Hammer Head and they fail to land. Running out of ammunition, the imperial army finally takes flight and the republic’s counterattack commences.
The Death Stinger is completed with a true organoid that had been brought back from Garil Ruins and was nurtured and forced to grow.
The imperial army, having split into two groups when it took flight, was pursued by the republic army. The group that escaped by the south route played a game of cat-and-mouse with the republic army but, with the support of Geno Breaker, they narrowly managed to escape.
The republic army pursuit unit enters the battle of Hesberides Lake.
Battle of the eastern part of Red Rust.
The imperial army’s special forces (with new Zoids) are dispatched to rescue their allies on the north route that are unable to shake their pursuit unit. During the battle the Death Stinger suddenly goes berserk. After seriously damaging both armies it disappears underground. As a result the north route unit succeeds in escaping.
August Shocked by the power of the imperial army’s new Zoid, republic HQ orders the development of strengthened equipment for the Blade Liger. After testing by Maj. Arthur Borgman, attack boosters come into official use.
September Republic supreme HQ transport the single existing Ultrasaurus—the symbol of the president—to the western continent. This Ultrasaurus the Destroyer, equipped with the huge 1200mm Ultra Cannon, is the core of the western continent expeditionary force, the super heavy bomb force ‘Destroyer Corps’.
