The Emergency Viperius Coalition is a group of four smaller races banding together to stand a greater chance against the Hydran invasion. It's combined military forces have done surprisingly well against the Hydran forces.
The EVC's government is headed by the Council. The Council is based on Vahla, the homeworld of the Vahlans. Each of the four member races has three councilmen to make the balance of power equal. The Council acts as both the legislative and executive branches of the government. However, each member race still maintains it's own unique form of government to govern over it's own people. These governments range from democratic republics to dictatorships.
The judicial branch of the government is left to the court systems in the regional scale. There is no high court system, and so where a criminal is captured is where he is tried, regardless of if he is a member of that race. Because of this, there is a lot of bias amongst the courts against other species.
The EVC was founded to unify the member race's militaries under one banner so they could stand a better chance against the Hydrans.
Army and AirforceEdit
There are 540 billion troops serving in the Coalition Army and another 200 billion serving in the Coalition Air Force.
T130 Main Battle TankEdit
The T130 was selected to be the MBT of the Coalition because of the price of production. The Timarians designed this tank just before the outbreak on Rahavi and were actually preparing to go to war with the Vahlans before the Coalition and Council were formed. It is armed with a 200mm rail gun and a coaxial .50 caliber machine gun. It travels on two pairs of tracks for maximum stabability.
T24 Infantry Fighting VehicleEdit
The T24 is another Timarian design and was again selected because of the low price. It is armed with a 30mm rail gun and a 15mm rocket pod for anti-armor duties. It sits on 8 wheels and has a troop capacity of 12 soldiers.
AV16 Mobile Artillery SystemEdit
The AV16 is a walking artillery unit designed by the Opans. It is propelled by four legs, which the gun sits on. It stands 45 feet tall when the gun is in firing position. The gun itself is a massive 500mm cannon with an effective range of 20 miles.
R2 Surface-to-Air Missile VehicleEdit

It also has 30mm rocket pods for anti-armor duty. It can carry up to 25 troops and is able to support life in space for a limited time.
LMR-30 Combat Fighter/BomberEdit
The LMR-30 was designed after the Hydran invasion by the Quaths and has since proven itself more than capable of holding out against Hydran fighters. It is armed with a 20mm rail gun and air-to-air missiles. When on bombing missions, it is armed with either smart bombs or nuclear bombs, depending on the desperation of the mission.
There are over 7 million spaceships in the Coalition Navy, with roughly 380 billion personnel serving in it.

Utopian Class FrigateEdit
The Utopian class was designed shortly before the Hydran invasion due to the rapid expansion of the Prothian Empire.

It is aremd with 20 high-energy lasers. It is 900 feet in length and has a crew of 750.
The Quath Navy isn't really a military force, but more of a loose band of freight companies being forced by the government to give up their freighters and turn them into transports. Originally, the only form of navy the Quaths had were advanced fighter/bombers that were used as police. Now, the navy has grown to be the backbone of the supply lines that keep the Coalition fighting. It has over 1.5 million transports.

The Vahlans were the first to form the Council and offered a seat to the Quath, Opan and the Timarians. Their homeworld, Vahla, houses the Council as well as the High Command of the Coalition. They have a moderate population of 350 billion.
The Quath are the smallest of the Coalition races, with a population of just 60 billion on a few dozen worlds. However, what they lack in manpower, they more than make up for in airpower and small fighter technology. They also play a major role in the Coalition economy.
The Opans take on the role of scouting out Hydran advances, with their smaller warships able to move extremely fast. On the ground, they are the fastest species with a top speed of 55 miles per hour while running. They have a moderate population of 320 billion.
The Timarians are the largest race in the Coalition with a population of 2 trillion. Their worlds are often overcrowded and polluted. However, they are also the most fierce fighters and contribute nearly half of the Coalition's armed forces. Their homeworld of Timara was recently lost to the Hydrans, demoralizing the Timarian troops.
