The Battle of Anchorage
is the colloquial name applied to a decisive push by American power armor
combat units into Chinese
-controlled areas of Alaska
. The operation was ultimately successful.
In 2067, with American and Chinese forces slugging it out at a near standstill in the frozen north, the first Power Armor units are shipped to Alaska. These initial versions of power armor are the distant cousins of the famous T-51b power armor
. Less maneuverable, larger, heavier, and less mobile than Power Armors to come, these early Power Armor soldiers nevertheless proved instrumental in blunting the Chinese thrust into Alaska.
