The United States of America
The Martian Invasion forced the United States to throw off the inwardly looking focus into which it had sunk after its Civil War. Capitalizing on its growing industrial power and seemingly unlimited natural resources, the United States is building itself into a power to be reckoned with.
Forces of the United States
The core of German forces is the Prussian army and it is well trrained and well led.
A leader in innovative Steam Technology, the United States is creating a powerful force of aeroscaphs, colossi, and mechanified infantry.

Colossi are the American answer to the Cephalids fighting machines and are the heart of the US Mechanical Force, the backbone of the new US army. Each walking machine is served by a dedicated crew and armed with light guns in the torso (continuing problems with recoil prevent a more robust armament) and Colt pattern machine guns on the arms.

US Mechanified Infantry suits are commonly painted in battleship gray.
Units often carry cavalry style pennants identifying the parent unit and the individual suit.
