The Puerto Plata Invasion is a conflict that breaks out in the Carribean Island of Hispaniola. Led by a coalition of various Latin American exiles, they will plan to land in Puerto Plata to overhrow the Dominican Dictator Rafael Trujillo.

This conflict is also a proxy war between the US and the OFN on one side, with Nazi Germany and the Iberian Union on the other. The conflict's outcome will have a large effect on the neighbouring nation of Haiti, with the country's faith and stability greatly depending on who wins.
