CHAPTER 1


The Rumble in the Jungle

THE LITASINENSTRIKKA IN AETALILUUNDE
IT WAS DAWN, 12 MAIJE, 1981.
From the capital of Aetezim, the home of the royal couple and two thirds of the population of the Aetaliluunde, the situation of that bright, mid-spring morning could have hardly been less apparent. As the sleepy city of eleven-thousand – nestled between the great Lake of Kalan and jungles of border-Aetaliluunde, and on this day, shrouded in a light fog – slowly began to rouse itself, a storm some eight years in the making finally unleashed its fury.

The invasion of the Aetaliluunde was swift, brutal, and crushingly efficient; a feat that its invaders could only dream of replicating in the years to come. On this morning, across the great eastern border of the zebra kingdom, six Equestrian divisions pushed headlong into some of the most brutal terrain the little kingdom had to offer, followed afterwards by ten more.

The skies that day were as sunny as could be – the Equestrians no doubt thankful that Mother Nature was on their side as they climbed up the steep mountain passes of the Ketakwus and Metoms and hacked their way through the dense jungle underbrush of the Viraz Aetezim, all virtually unabated. So great was their efficiency this first morning that by the time the sun began to fall, the great invasion force in the south was knocking on the doorstep of the old city of Wokizim. In an innumerous number of little villages that dotted the countryside, the wholly unarmed Aetalis could only watch in horror and grief as their soon-to-be occupiers marched their way into the hollow innards of the Aetali kingdom. The first Equestrian demonstration of the litasinenstrikka – the method by which the Aetaliluunde was ruthlessly invaded on this day – had begun.

To the common, everyday citizen, the litasinenstrikka was a curious, dated term that even in its early days was considered an oddity. By 12 Maije, it was so archaic that seldom was it used for anything, even its literal meaning (“lightning strike”). However, even as the old definition became archaic, a new definition found itself being formulated in the circles of the Equestrian military.

In 1973, at the onset of the Lunarian War, the Lunarian general Avyutonij Zapoj set about on what he and the rest of the Lunarian cabinet called the “byyrachvorja” – the ‘short war.’ In effect, the ‘short war’ was what in English would be known as a blitz – the Lunarians would systematically overwhelm the border before a resistance could even be conceived. To an extent, the rushing of the Lyuzana Hills during the first days of that war was a demonstration of this ‘short war;’ however, the tactic quickly became detrimental to the Lunarian cause, and by the end of May, 1973, it was abandoned. Despite this, the idea of the Lunarian ‘short war’ was implanted in Equestrian minds, and, as it became apparent that the Aetalis would continue to resist, soon after implemented. It was then that the new-found, now Lunarian-turned-Equestrian concept took up its sinister moniker of the litasinenstrikka – the “lightning strike.”

The idea behind it was simple: build up a mobile, light army capable of disastrous efficiency in the field, and then at the moment of greatest weakness strike the points of greatest threat. And, although under the command of Avyutonij it had been cripplingly inefficient as a means of attack, against the Aetalis it was devastating. In the face of the inferior Army of the Aetaliluunde, it became the key weapon in the effective, albeit small arsenal of the Equestrian military, at times driving troops so deep into Aetali territory within the span of mere days that there were fears that supply would become an issue. Indeed, as the war progressed and the Aetalis adopted new tactics, the ability to drive hard into Aetali territory brought troubled supply chains a plenty. The practice nevertheless remained in place until the conclusion of the war, causing the Aetalis innumerous headaches, and prompting Sųsova to declare the tactic “their damned trump card.”

By mid-day, 12 Maije, and thanks in no part to the litasinenstrikka, sixteen divisions of Equestrian troops – a total of sixteen thousand militia, Guard Core, and reservists – had crossed the eastern border of Aetaliluunde with no resistance.  Only as the last division crossed into the Aetali Ketakwus did word of the great attack on Aetali sovereignty reach Sųsova and Zophani, who now were forced to confront the idea of open war with the Equestrian government. The litasinenstrikka had worked its magic.

how do they do ANYTHING

if they're intelligent you'd assume thed evolve some sort of gripping mechanism otherwise they can barely do shit without like specially crafted tools that are much more of a bitch to make than 'flint sharp thing that you ohold in hand' itd be like 'flint sharp thing with a special rosewood handcrafted hoof handle grafted onto the side'

1) the overwhelming majority don't need actual weapons to begin with (pegasi can manipulate weather and unicorns have magic, aetalis have witchcraft/voodoo/whatever bullshit the show calls zebra magic)
2) the ones which do (earth ponies) tend to fill either the role of scouting (at which point they would only require something akin to a machete, which they can hold thanks to the fact that horses have what amounts to a wrist joint) or they work the proper artillery

Just because horses have something similar to a wrist bone doesnt mean they can hold a machete
They have literally no grip, hooves cant pick anything up

that would be horrendously ineffective because most unicorns are rich and privileged and wouldn't get drafted until literally nobody else was left but them

the show has some weird bullshit where they grip things by holding them against their wrist or something similar to that i'm not looking up the specifics of this because it's autistic but there is a way for them to canonically grip things so that would be how they do it
