The other one was rather long.

Highlights:
-International relations within the Americas and between the spaceborne powers degraded quite a bit.

-The Italian War continues

-Several nations are expanded into Africa with the economy being the main helper.

Oh, and if an Admin would be so kind as to the lock the other one it'd be much appreciated.

I am still angry because if even if I get an army, there is nothing I can do. Nick has un-realistically taken all the land in the Americas. I am also tired of several countries that are all talk and no game. Something needs to be done, like a group reform.

Man, no one has the guts to fight.

We'll see.

Moving along, the forces mobilized into Como sustained a number of casualties today as an enemy counter-offensive pressed forward. Some 200+ men were neutralized with a number of vehicles meeting the same fate. Luckily, with the Basque theatre troops heading into the Italian theatre, a larger effort with a slight reduction in logistical mishap should occur. The next goal is to go ahead and engulf the rest of the set eastern coasts and enable a zero-go-zone for any possible Italian retreat by sea. Of course this is translating to the West as well with the southern press. So, the targeted city is Trieste. Once this is set, the heavily defended towns of Florence and Milan will follow en suite. Hopefully.

In the Maldives, the archipelago is being sustained with Martial Law after the Coast Guard was defeated and delegates surrendered under the terms of a more peaceful integration. No more than 85 casualties were received by French forces after the first wave assault. Of course the deficit will fall upon France, but with the new phase of war bonds hitting the area things look positive. The economy shouldn't falter too much granted French construction companies have been contracted along with local ones to repair any structural damage. Corporations have also been noted to give aid to local small-frame Maldivian industries in hopes of integrating foreign offices with joint benefits.

On note of France's LAV order. Bohemia would like 300 of the vehicles to be paided for monetarily at the price of $3 million USD per unit. The other 100 LAVs would be paided for through trade. I suppose the exchange rate would be 1:1 for similar vehicles, but what for MBTs and artillery systems? The completed vehicles will most likely have to be shipped by rail to the appropriate stations in France, but that would involve going around or through Prussia. I suppose shippment by air is always a possibility.

The upcoming Mk.III AMBT will cost roughly 4.5-4.6 million NSO; the Mk.II is near 4 million NSO and the Mk.I is roughly 3.6 million NSO . MAATs and OSVs can be exchanged at 1:1 so long as the first-mentioned vehicle be stripped of its communication package for both price reduction and defense safety. Anyhow, air shipment is a likely choice granted their weight ratio. If need be the case, we can run this as a joint logistical mission for military training. This would be cost-effective on part of both of our defense departments; or so I would think.

As of two days ago, Madagascar and Comoros agreed to join UNO, release of this information was held back until Mozambique agreed to join, which happened today. In light of this success, word has been released to other underdeveloped countries in the area (i.e. Malawi, Tanzania) that this option is open to them as well, however, we have received no word from them on that yet.

In other words, We still patiently await our tank contract from Rome, so that we may commence our invasion of Indochina.


Another nation has decided to join Prusso-Egypt today... Wait, wrong group and time.

And have no fear, I will get your tank done. The heat here is reaching the upper 90s the next few days, and since I live on the top floor of an old house, I've had to vacate to the basement for the time being. My room gives me headaches right now.

All of this was OK'd by Cliffe.

The HGS Nick Shelton has finally arrived in Uruguay with 20,000 troops, 200 HAT-1s, 50 MAF-1s, 300 LRT-1s, 75 MTH-1s, 68 LAH-1s, and 40 MAB-2s. The invasion of Uruguay will commence tonight at 10:00 p.m. Central Time in the US.
The Navy of Uruguay is approaching, but they're frigates and patrol boats are no match for carriers, missile cruisers, and battleships. The Army of Uruguay also has roughly the same amount of troops as us, if not more, and battles will be hard to win if they gain the upper hand.

The HGS Pacifica and its escorts of missile cruisers, battleships, small carriers, and frigates are approaching Latin America. The invasion of Honduras will begin at 11:00 p.m. July 6, 2036, Central Time, with 45,000 PCU troops entering with support from 50 HAT-1s, 30 MT-1s, 40 MTH-1s, 45 LAH-1s, 60 MAB-2s, and 20 MAB-1s. Much more support will follow these that are not listed. At 11:05 p.m., the PCU invasion of Guatemala will begin. 35 MAB-2s will destroy communications in the capital and then troops will be airlifted to the nearest airport in Guatemala City by C-5s within 12 hours.

Back in Ameriland, PCU troops are securing the rapidly conquered towns, cities, and parishes back from Operation Murus. The Murus Wall, the monument to paranoia and invasions is scheduled to be completed, armed, and ready for battle by August 10. A complement of 4,000 men will stay at the Wall, spread out of course, at all times to fend off invasion.

Maracaibo has fallen to Great Colombian hands, after some heavy resistance and heavy casualties, including nearly half of the task force sent to secure it. With control of Maracaibo lake blockades have been established to prevent shipments to large part of Venezuela.

As was planned the MTH-2 has been put in service, and has served it's purpouse well, as of now. On that subject several APC prototypes are being designed and tested, the design is currently being perfected. It is estimated that the final version of these APCs will aid in the assault on San Fernando. At least %80 of Zulia is currently in Colombian control, forces are being mobilized towards Tachira and Merida, hopefully setting up strategic bases to launch the attack on San Fernando.

Progress to San Fernando through Apure is slow, we have once again met heavy resistance and the harsh terrain is also slowing our advance, although the HAT-1s are doing an excellent job clearing the terrain, although these methods have provoken several enviromentalist riots, not all peaceful.

Ahem. The SRGL, in response to our neighbours on the border, shall shut down the border with them, and also the Guyana-Brazil border. The large force we have on the so called "Murus line" will not be leaving. Also, forces in and around Newport News shall be reinforced. Already once it has been assualted, and due to being so close to another probable hostile nation, it is a possible risk of attack. All to protect ourselves.

And good thing this neighbor is just as dedicated in deterrence. We have tanks. They may be "light" tanks in contrast, but they're there. Yep. Just thought I'd throw that in there because I'm a tad bored. Yep . . . Uh-huh . . .

Moving along, the coalition forces in Como launched a rather subtle bombing run on the southern flank of of the city. The goal of this was to assure that the Italians knew the Napoleonic Air Force had dominance this far into the country and to press their lines east while deterring any possible reinforcements that may come from Milan. LARAs have been engaging rooftop targets, indirect AAA, and whatever armour is in the area. Most of the Italian troops have stuck to one position and travelling limited distance using alleyways. Granted collateral damage is wanted to be minimal, dismounts are having to handle these passages, so to speak, on foot and by hand. Reinforcements have been able to link-up several miles due west and should be feeding the somewhat dwindling munitions supply to a healthy amount.

On note of the latter advancement, forces pretty much marched through the town of Novara. Occasional MG nests and mortar pockets kept heads down for a moment or two, but after seeing light armour columns pass by they quickly discharged from engaging. A similar story is present in Vercelli except the contrasting fact of finding 5 enemy tanks. The crews had abandoned the vehicles in hopes of not being neutralized in a more forceful manner. As it stands now, it seems the Italian command is growing weary of a two-front war.

In the southwest coasts, armoured units met up outside of Lucca and Pisa in the narrow distance between the two cities. The mop-up teams meant to be sent to Lucca finally made their way and are doing what they were meant to. A quick supply run to refresh the teams of the men meant to prendre d'assaut has been sent and they should be rubbling on within 16 hours. The Marines dispatched to act as the pseudo-cleaners in Lucca have been attached to the assault parties.

In my Civ IV games, France is the eternal backstabber, especially when I play as Rome. I'd rather not have my internet life start to mirror gaming life, so I propose a non-aggression pact between us, just to keep it safe.

Meanwhile, in the country of good food, wine, and women, Roman forces are moving forward to Caserta and Avellino, using the same strategies we used to get to Benevento. The Italians are on a three way retreat to the north, Napoli, and Sicily. The whole southeastern area of Molise has been secured, but we're taking heavy resistance from all other areas. The east of Basilicata is relatively empty, but since Italians are on the move, the western half has not been entered by Roman forces.

Yes, backstabbing . . . Anyhow, I don't have plans to pillage and conquer anything in the Balkans. Thus, I agree to the pact. Granted that we've just pretty much told each other we won't kill one another, I'd like to propose a beneficial agreement system in regards to Italy. Seeing as though Italy is a fairly homogeneous nation, I'd like to see to it that neither of us fortifies or detains rightful Italian citizens from passing between the future Franco-Roman boundary. This would mean keeping a military buffer zone of at least 15 miles on both sides and somewhat powerless auxiliary checkpoints. In turn, trade within the peninsula would go as normal as possible and we wouldn't have to break its economy too terribly bad nor keep families apart.

In Uruguay, the battleship HGS Iron Hand launched eighteen missiles at the approaching Uruguay Navy. Two frigates out of the six were sunk. Shots were fired back, but our CIWS systems shot them down. The HGS Freedom and Democracy fired 20 Scorpion missiles at the approaching attack helicopters (UH-1 Iroquois) and many, if not all, were sunk. Rescue efforts to save the crashed pilots are underway.

MAB-2s flew low and fast over Montevideo and destroyed communications and army barracks of the Uruguay Army. Not 5 minutes after, 13 LAH-1s flew in from an escort carrier off of the coast and assaulted the beach defenses that were poorly erected in the past days. Soon, ALC-1s, LCA-1s, and LCUs landed on the beaches off of Montevideo and deployed nearly 4,000 PCU Army soldiers onto the beaches. They quickly stormed the sea-side areas, crushing resistance with lethal force. Three MTH-1s also flew in to drop off snipers on skyscrapers in the city. 15 minutes later, 35 Snake Operators were dropped onto the capital building via HTH-1s. The President has been secured, to prevent being shot by protesters, coup attempts, etc. Now, MTH-1s are dropping troops off on the other end of the city from the initial landings to cut off escapes of enemies. Civilians are asked to stay in one spot, to avoid being targeted.

In Honduras, HGS Pacifica bombarded the Honduras Navy (one frigate and 60 patrol boats) to pieces. Only 27 patrol boats escaped, and they went in-country up the river deltas. Five minutes after the Naval Attack, 50 ALC-1s deployed 7,000 troops onto the shores. 36 HAT-1s came in behind them, and crushed some resistance. Soon, they will control the shores.

In Guatemala, bad weather marred the initial attack runs, barely any communications were taken down, and no air bases were destroyed. Almost immediately, F-5 Tigers flew up and attacked the C-5s ferrying troops. One of them was destroyed, killing 150 troops. Pacifica launched 145 MAF-1s to crush the new threats, and we soon had air superiority once again. More troops will be landed in Guatemala City by noon.

Back in Ameriland, we laugh at Cliffe once more. No more control you say? GONE, GONE, GONE, SMEEEAAAGOL'S FREEEEE!

In Uruguay, the PCU Army controls nearly 3/8 of the city, and the push is ongoing. We have lost a total 132 men so far, and the estimated casualties for the other side is 341. LAH-1s are patrolling the skies, destroying armored cars and helicopters meant to ferry enemy troops around.

In the water outside of Uruguay, the PCU Naval Task Force Shelton has destroyed the enemy. The remaining 4 frigates and untold amount of patrol boats made a last stand, and succeeded in sinking one destroyer. However, our four battleships delivered broadsides and our carriers launched Bolter and SPAM equipped fighters to quickly destroy the enemy.

In Honduras, the remaining shore defenses have been swept away by Pacifica bombarding them with its Bolter cannons. HAT-1s are rolling through the streets of La Ceiba. Very light resistance from the Hondurans, but the President of Honduras has pledged to help Guatemala if they ask for help in repelling us.

In Guatemala, our troops number in 7,000 range. We are quickly spreading throughout Guatemala City, and securing many roads. The President has been secured, and he asks Honduras to not resist, as it will only result in more death from his army and more force being used.

11 Escort carriers from the Bahamas will arrive with more troops and supporting equipment next Monday for the PCU troops in Guatemala.

In Uruguay, the enemy military is falling back, having lost 600 men within 24 hours. The capital is nearly completely controlled by the PCU, with only 200 losses. MAF-1s are moving quickly to intercept as many escaping troops as possible. UH-1s with Missiles attached and men with RPGs in them are a common sight in the skies, a futile attempt to gain air superiority by the Uruguayans.

In Honduras, the President is very angirly protesting PCU rule over the area. We're trying to reach a deal at the moment, while HAT-1s roll over the enemy emplacements. In Guatemala, the President is ordering a stand down of all Guatemalan Troops. Soon, Guatemala will be ours, while we reach a deal.

The upcoming Mk.III AMBT will cost roughly 4.5-4.6 million NSO; the Mk.II is near 4 million NSO and the Mk.I is roughly 3.6 million NSO . MAATs and OSVs can be exchanged at 1:1 so long as the first-mentioned vehicle be stripped of its communication package for both price reduction and defense safety. Anyhow, air shipment is a likely choice granted their weight ratio. If need be the case, we can run this as a joint logistical mission for military training. This would be cost-effective on part of both of our defense departments; or so I would think.

Bohemia agrees with the proposed plan of a joint logistical mission. In exchange for the remaining 100 LAVs, Bohemia would like:
-20 Mk.III AMBTs
-10 LARAs
-20 OSVs
-5 LCGs
-15 MAATs
-10 AIFVs

Some light has been shed on Basque Country today. Spain has agreed to fetch-over the territory under a set of specifications. The citizens will be granted dual citizenship and will be represented by both nations. As it stands, the economy will stand as an Autonomous Economic Zone which will make it self-sustaining with reserve governing support. Military support will be mostly French in active wartime, but any future stationed forces will be coalition Atlantic. Conclusively, the territory is now close to a buffer state status and may shed hopes for future Atlantic integration into a wholesome union.

In Italy, the forces in Como successfully isolated the city. Scout armour was able to secure all roads leading in and out of the area making reinforcements unlikely. Retreat is still a possible scenario granted the large scheme of surrounding territory, but they'll only meet air coverage. As it stands now, coalition forces are passing through the streets blowing megaphones and speakers asking for an Italian surrender. Because intel still hasn't broadcasted throughout all of the troops about French engrossment, the effects are minute. Within the next few days word-of-mouth should prevail in a high number of enemy POWs.

Further south, the assault teams have engaged enemy units on the skirt of Pisa. The men have been stressed to continue mobilizing in their vehicles, but anti-tank weapons are in high density. APS systems mounted on the vehicles are being overworked and munition discharges are emptying their capability standards. Aside from that, just a few miles north, the mop-up crews moving through Lucca have been doing a fair job in capturing Italians. AIFVs have proven to be useful pieces of equipment in conjunction with live-feed data and overhead support from LARAs. The AMBT Mk.IIs and several released Mk.IIIs have also added a certain level of intimidation by patrolling the city skirts.

In the east, forces using Ravenna as a Prime Mobilization Center (PMC) have pressed due northwest into Ferrara. If recalled correctly, light armour has been reported from the area during French efforts to make a land-line to Venice. It seems now this was the greater majority of their "hard-hitters", so to speak. It's been figured that if the area was filled with a greater support prospect, they've since withdrawn to Modena in hopes of stopping coalition advancements. As it goes now, Marines acting as a secondary compliment to the now landed Army boys are pressing through and gaining some trust of local inhabitants. This will help in reducing the negative effects of our soon-to-be moving armour. Tank columns will make up the backbone of the Modena offensive.

Troops are becoming scarce in Venezuela, for said reason a mass recruitment campaign has been launched in both Venezuela and Colombia. Common criminals on Colombian and Venezuelan streets are being captured to, hopefully, be reabilitated and be put into military service. Although not specifically the ideal military force they are cheaper to train than the average soldier.

Recruitment media to liberate Venezuela from Chavez's socialist regime has been quite succesful, in the last few days many Venezuelans have enlisted. Merida and San Cristobal's leaders are both considering surrender, negotiations are being held place at this moment.

We have extended our blockade so that Caracas is also cut off from external supplies, though we have received several attempts to break it, all ending in failure. After San Fernando falls all forces stationed on Maracaibo and Apure are to attack Caracas, as Chavez has made it clear that diplomacy is not an option.

France would like to offer Bohemia the European Interests Union (EIU). Granted Britain and France have both handed prospects of economic and defense gains, the EIU will be the link between the ADCC and Bohemia. Of course this is just a new name to the already infant establishment of economic trade and military defense of said interest, but this may make our diplomacy more concrete.

In other news, the Defense Ministry has been enlightened with one of the highest budgets ever seen to French policy. This is because with the ADCC moving towards future integration, France will serve as the united force of retaliation and offensive measurements to any foreign policies deemed improper.

Plus, your only coastline is along the Arctic ocean, you certainly wouldn't have a navy with 200 strong of cruisers, destroyers, and 40 aircraft carriers. You really wouldn't need much of a navy at all. Only a few large ships, and more small vessels. definitely not 840 ships.


For you, I could suggest using John Dawn's list as a base, and making your numbers a little smaller, as he has a larger population than you.

The ghost of Basil II came to the Emperor in the night and told him he needs to go faster in his conquests, as things are falling behind schedule. The Emperor, spooked by the thousand year old apparition, phoned the commanders in charge of the Italy operation and told them to hurry up.

Naturally, nothing happened except the usual. The army is advancing on Napoli, and most of the Italians have sense enough to get out of the way, and are fleeing to Sicily and Sardinia for some serious rebel business. This is not a problem at the moment. Our business is pressing west and north. With the Italians also heading in that direction, it shouldn't be that hard.

Anywho, I seem to recal being told that Iran could be taken with relatively little force, and that the major difficulties will be in the other Arab states formerly controlled by Will. Assuming this is still the case, I will begin invasion of Afghanistan and Turkmenistan tonight with an airstrike. F-15 Strike Eagles and F/A-38Bs will bomb targets, guided by AH-64 Apaches. The Apaches will designate targets for the bomber fleet, and scout out the area. In the morning, Tu-225 Barracuddas and A-10 Warthogs will be sent in to destroy as many tanks as possible. F-5 Tigers, with their 20mm cannon, hydra rockets and Maverick ATGMs will be deployed to destroy roads and armed checkpoints. Since I'm fighting geurillas, my main goal will be to cut off their supply lines and communication. Other strike aircraft and helicopters of the UAC will be deployed after the F/A-38Bs destroy enemy radars and SAM sites. F-15 Strike Eagles will be sent to destroy as many missile/artilery batteries as possible.

If tonight/tommorow morning go as planned, tommorow night I will invade with Tanks and APCs.

At those of you confused by Finland's protest using the name of Commonwealth, it is indeed Evan. He helps editing and the like with Matt's account which sometimes leads him locked in it.

Anyhow, France is calling for aid from several ADCC members to send relief and reinforcements to the Italian lines. Spain has promised 5,000 troops along with Algeria's 4,200. These troops should serve well in reducing the strain on the Marines along the southwest coasts.

Also, in light of China, the ADCC will be sending two armoured regiments (4000 troops and armored vehicles) along with a battalion of French Legionnaires (1000 men and accompanying equipment). The first men to touch ground, the FFL, should be there within 48-72 hours based upon the rapid deployment protocol. The regiments will take a bit longer with nearly 100 hours to deploy and arrive. Note, this is not a declaration of armed conflict, but it will be a testament of deterrence.

Mobilisation of Siberian 2nd army reserves has begun. Siberian heavy bombers have aslo begun probing flights into chinese airspace while naval carriers have put out to sea.

Granted you've made a business capitalizing on tank manufacturing, I'd like to make a business proposition. I fear my factories aren't up to par at the moment to produce all the armour and updates to said vehicles as fast as I'll need them for future acquisitions. With that in mind, it sounds as though your factories are corporate entities in themselves. Without further ado, I would like to contract some of your factories for roughly four months to build-up my vehicular fleets. In return, you'll be paid with 30% of the capital gains (technological sells, exporting tariffs circulating in your policy, etc.) as well a handsome forwarding expense. Nearly 40% of the workforce will be Atlantic, but the rest will be open to your market which will produce better understanding of each others economic constructs on the public level. Conclusively, this may bring private business from Atlantic territories into Rome along with a few billion in government funding by ends meet. Oh, and this may remove some civil tensions as our borders get closer to meeting at other boundaries by introducing mixed populations.

Ok, after much procrastination, India has finally entered the 21st century and starts to build its economy and military to cope with rising threats all around it. With a large populace and a great technical know-how, this shouldn't take too long.

The rich mines are being reopened, their abandoned ore from bygone eras when technology was insufficient for proper excavation are finding new worth.

Naval ports and dry docks are being constructed at Pondicherry, Thiruvananthapuram, and Mumbai. Major military bases and airfields are under construction in the vicinity of the ports as well as various classified areas. Outposts are being built at strategic intervals along the border, and fortifications at choke-points across the land.

Conscription has been initiated to swell the ranks, new weapons and machines of war are being churned out by the handful by existing factories, soon to be augmented by the expanding industry.

Additionally, the Sri Lankan government has been approached diplomatically for securing strategic naval ports and airfields.

PS. This is my first post, so feel free to give me thumbs up or down for content and realism. Thanks!

Regardless, the 8th, 3rd and 10th Tank Divisions are in position along the Kazakhstan border, along with the 2nd, 5th and 7th Motorized Rifle divisions.

The 4th and 6th Light divisions are being moved in to keep an eye on the recently dominated populations.


Back home, there's quite a bit of production going on. We've got a number of divisions without the equipment to fight.

A tank division without any tanks is always embarassing.



Aand yes, I do realize this means I have thousands on thousands of armoured vehicles. What can I say? Alenia is a mechanized nation.

In a joint operation with Finn, I invaded it a few weeks ago. I don't know how his half went, but mine fell without too much real resistance. Outdated military and all that.

French forces have begun forward target elimination in the cities of Milan and Florence. Both of these respected areas have heavy defenses in the name of keeping Italy sovereign as long as possible. Unfortunately, the Italian command is faltering after taking heavy casualties from both the north and south. Staggering defeats have broken the young men in terms of mentality and the enemy equipment standards cannot be kept. It is hoped that things can be wrapped up quite soon after the fall of these two areas.

The men in Como have received the bulk of the reinforcements as to continue pressing downwards in a fluent motion. They've conquered most of the city, with heavy resistance pockets scattered in no feasible fashion. There seems to be no singular communication network which leaves them without heavier munitions fire. Regular helicopter flights over the area blaring propaganda and askings for surrender have lead to many younger recruits surrendering.

Along the western coast, Livorno has met the might of French armour. Coalition forces were supplemented with another landing of reinforcements to prepare to head east to link with the Florentine assault. It seems as though the Italians expected this, but with all the aforementioned reasons, they were not able to bulk up defenses rapidly enough. Mop-up teams in the previously invaded towns are doing well with a forward-command center being established in Lucca.

Aside from that, I'd like to thank Rome for accepting our business proposition. I hope that after the engineers and workers get settled in after a week or two and get capital orders in, ten vehicles should be off the line every two to six days depending on various factors of choice.

Hey, like I said, beyond Gorgoroth, Mordor is a very nice place full of water and growing things. And I try to limit my impact on the environment, because if the oceans rise, my capital gets flooded. And yes, everyone is guilty. That's why I said partially. More so than someone like Cliffe, with all his eco-awareness.

And I'm getting that feeling too. But I always get that feeling on my laptop, which crashes playing youtube videos.

Not too bad, but those numbers are more realistic for full military mobilization, not active forces alone. For instance, I'm keeping my full military force at about 800 tanks, in line with my nation's ability to finance a military.

In fact, by 2036, most of Siberia will be majority Chinese...with you might see cause a large intentional indecent in the near future, in real life.

Also, the Russian Federation's infestructure is really old as of 2010, and the current plan to expand it that Russia is doing right now predicts standards to be met with the west only by 2030, if that. So you have to just be careful. Logistics can be an issue too, especially when dealing with China. You guys are certainly more technically advanced than Cole, but to quote Lennin, quantity really does have a quality all it's own. Active, the PLA has over 1 million ground troops to use at a beckon call... :3

Anyway, the thing you Siberian kids have going for you is almost untapped natural resources, although they will be less so in 26 years. Just mid realism I guess. I mean my navy, of 30 destroyers, 12 cruisers, and two aircraft carriers, plus troop ships is a bit over what Great Britain could realistically field, but hey it's a game. I don't plan on saying though that I can pull 8000 tanks and 10 aircraft carrier battle groups out of my patookie because I don't want to lose a war.

/rant


Well, ah, there is this little fact that Alenia is a military state.

Every single citizen, man woman or child, regardless of ability, is technically a soldier.

And there is this OTHER little fact that 'active forces' and 'full mobilization' are the same.

An Alenian mobilization means calling up the second-liners with their Cold War tanks and whatnot.

There's about 300,000 of them, but only around half can actually fight. You see, when you stop manufacturing ammunition for the T-72s, it turns out you actually disable every single one of those vehicles that use that gun. How inconvenient. And I'm not crazy enough to send those ancient vehicles to the front lines.

Call 'em a militia if you want. Policey things, keeping the peace.


Anyway, I've sent a commission to Rome for a heavy tank, so once I get my hands on a few of them I'll be able to retire a few hundred of the T-80s.


I can afford this sort of thing, because I don't actually have a navy. And my airforce is late Cold War stuff. But they work, and they're upgraded, and the only original things in some of those jets are the pilot's badges.

From 2013, to 2036, it was a rebel nation. They were connected at the town level, not state, county, or even two towns together. You can't just say your nation has been there forever if you first rebelled, then gained independence, then seceded.

If Texas was a nation, where was organized resistance when Nick first took it over? Just sayin.

Also, the Italian front is progressing well. We're a few dozen miles from Napoli, as the Italians once again retreat from their positions. Though we've stemmed the flow of troops to the islands, we're expecting them to turn northward for a last stand in Rome. That will take some time, there. Also, now that Venice is entirely secure, a commission is being prepared to investigate what all happened to the loot they took from our capital so long ago...

In EQ, things are peaceful, and things are getting back to working order, including a defense force capable of defense.

Texas, not the LSR. So I suppose you walked, took the ships and left, right, no opposition. Unless the magically appeared.

It gives the PCU great pride that we have commissioned the second Columbia class carrier, the HGS Portland. It's first assignment is to report to the coast of Sakhalin with 100 MAF-1s, 50 GAF-1s, 20 MAB-2s, and 3 MAB-1s. 5,000 troops will tag along with these planes.

So...when your entire nation relies on nothing but a military industrial complex...how exactly do you stay afloat economically...

Meh, if it works for you.


Surely you've wondered why so much of the old Federation equipment ends up in the strangest places?

You must have wondered where the money goes.

The fact is: people pay a lot of the old filthy lucre for untraceable heavy weapons.

Untraceable, because revealing your buyers isn't very good for business.


Not that we sell the GOOD stuff, of course...

Mongolian troops and vehicles have started their advance across the Gobi Desert and into China. Up north, the Siberians are attacking into Manchuria, and theyll need to be swift if theyre gonna meet the Mongols any time soon. A fleet from Magadan (as far as I could tell) left as well. The Chinese have deployed a great bulk of their air power to stop the BEARs, and the two air forces have not yet engaged. At least in this post.

H-11 bombers sought out Mongolian and Siberian mobile SAMs, both target and targeter destroyed each other in most cases (you can still see them, and its day over there right now. I think), but the BEARs simply had more SAMs than the Chinese had bombers. Cole said he sent six, Moffat and MacDonald had no numbers in their plans they gave me, so Im gonna go with one out of the six were shot down. More of their planes attacked the spearheads of the columns, and then the airforces engaged. I lied earlier. Since theyre Russians, its probable theyll gain the upper hand in air in a matter of days, having more advanced planes and the like. Its unclear who will win at this moment. The Chinese also sent out their own fleet to find and destroy the Siberian one.

Thats all for now. Next time: Cole, be less specific, I get confused by that as I do by vagueness. Moffat and Ian: Be more specific, give me some rough numbers or something.

Once again, I'll state: I really have no idea what I'm doing, but at least it's not as complicated as Cliffe vs. Cole in RA-CAS-UNS. I'll get the hang of it soon.

Awe: I neglected to mention this in my plans I sent you, but Alenian vehicle platoons come with attached AA. So an armoured company has five of the best self propelled AA I can get my hands on.

Which could technically be overkill, but my airforce is a little old.

Rocky, the island of Hispaniola is completely controlled by Nick's Cuba friend. :(



Exactly. Rocky, call of the things.

And since it is completely confirmed that the island of Hispanola is in PE hands, the invasion is being called off. THAT's why I waited before I sent my troops in.

As for the forces that were sent, they are going to be "moved down the line" in the Caribbean. They are going to be sent to the island of Puerto Rico, I'd like to know if that is owned by anyone before I go invading.
