Prussia chose to push their advantage after the Austro-Prussian war and instead of developing a coalition, they created a sub-nation out of Austria. Not outright annexation but control was given over to Emperor Wilhelm I. King Franz Joseph of Austria was allowed to keep his title but his rule became more of a figurehead then a real leader. Austria is allowed to maintain some autonomy but some reforms were forced. Particularly ones to gear the Austrian infrastructure to begin producing goods to bolster the new German Empire’s army. Their production of breech-loading rifles became perfected over the next two years. Some of their designs were purchased by the Union and used in some of their early designs for Gravicite enhanced weaponry. When the existence of Gravicite was revealed to the world, the German Empire traded 1,000 of their new guns to Britain in exchange for the information necessary to collect and refine Gravicite. The Germans quickly incorporate the new technology into their work and quickly become the dominant power in continental Europe to the surprise of Britain.
