The Interstellar Wolf with Claws - Cobra War (Referred to by COBRA as the Occupation of COBRA) was a war between the Freehold of the Wolves, Supernova X, CLAWS and COBRA in the aftermath of the FTW-Kashmir War.
After COBRA and Kashmir were defeated in the FTW-Kashmir War in April 2018, there was a lot of bitterness and anger towards the Freehold of the Wolves and it's Mad King, Canik by General Kanabis and COBRA.
General Kanabis took to Discord to try and provoke Canik. He would say terrible things about him to try and get him to retaliate. General Kanabis attempted to undermine the Freehold of the Wolves' relationship with Independent Republic of Orange Nations. This act as well as being convinced that General Kanabis would attack any chance he got, Canik assembled his Council of Archons and it was decided that the Freehold of the Wolves would attack first. Before announcing to Planet Bob his decision, Canik secured the backing of Supernova X and CLAWS. When he received their backing, he officially announced to Planet Bob that he would not stand for General Kanabis's insults and declared war on COBRA.
The war began officially on September 21st, 2018. The initial invasion by FTW, SNX, & CLAWS was successful. When COBRA was able to regroup, they pushed them back and were able to do a great deal of damage to FTW, SNX, & CLAWS' smaller nations. The war would end up going back and forth between both sides for weeks. Neither side would move an inch. The fighting was intense. Billions of dollars used. Millions died. Nukes destroyed much. Warchests depleted. Economies destroyed and nations were crushed.
After several weeks of fighting, Canik reached out to General Kanabis to talk peace. General Kanabis refused several times to talk peace. When he did accept the offer to talk peace, he remained defiant and almost ended peace talks before they began. By October 15th, General Kanabis informed Canik that he would not talk peace until after Halloween. When Halloween ended, peace talks resumed. The talks lasted for 2 weeks. On November 17th, 2018, peace was officially declared.
The war took a significant toll on both sides. Many of the smaller nations on both sides were heavily impacted. When the war ended, ANiMaLz, who are enemies of COBRA, decided that they wanted to merge with the Freehold of the Wolves because they had stood up to COBRA and held their ground to those warmongers. The merger became official in December 2018.
