Due to the PCU's Aircraft Embargo, the UAC will now be opening an aircraft company. For now, we will only reproduce planes already in service with the UAC Airforce. Perhaps later on, we will advance into building designs of our own. The aircraft company will be named after the founder and president, Mikhael Garcia. (Random cool-ish sounding name.)

On a different note, the bombing in the middle East is going relatively smoothly, but the commanding Field General is not content with the amount of resistance still inhabiting the area, and has requested more bombing before an infantry invasion. The ground invasion has been postponed until Friday.

So far no UAC aircraft have been lost, although one A-10 took severe damage while strafing a military outpost, and a Mil-24 Hind took some hits from a 88mm flak cannon. Garcia Aircraft Industries will attempt to repair the damage. A UAC border guard was sniped this morning while on duty, our first casualty of the war. Enemy casualties are unknown, but due to our carpet-bombing, it is assumed they have lost several hundred soldiers by now. Refugee camps have been opened up along the outskirts of the combat zone to provide safe areas for civilians.

The Republican Congress (not political, but the congress of a Republic) has decided to pass the "Fortress" Act. Which literally makes Texas a fortress. All troops that left the PCU, or men with combat experience are being posted up on the Mexican and Oklahoman borders. SAMs and AA are all over. We are going into wardrive mode. Men that are able that have signed up for the military that are skilled in building and other factory tasks are being put to work. We have come out with a second version of M-36 "Bobcat" HGAA/I. (NOT MY LATEST PLANE!) It is intended for dogfighting and intercepting. These will also be mass produced.
We are also passing a law that ensures every man 18-25 serves two years in the armed forces, bumping our military up to 1.5 million.
The Aid ships will pass through this relatively small blockade unnoticed because there are so few ships over such a large space. We are also calling upon the aid of the French troops in Texas to aid us in our training.

Will do. Granted most of the Atlantic troops are regulars, joint training exercises can be arranged. The small task unit of FFL members should be able to adequately act as training officers at any level of the Texan Army or Marine Corps; aside from rifle training.

You don't seem to understand what we're trying to tell you.

You're taking over a lot of other countries at an unrealistic rate, and it seems as if you have no regard for the political and economic downsides to such rapid empire expansion. Why don't you go back and read Evan's comment carefully, so you understand what we're actually trying to show you. Because right now, you're reaction is "everyone is getting mad at me", that's not true, we want you to take into consideration the points we're trying to make.

And another thing, Will is sending humanitarian aid to China, he's not committing any act of war against you. So, blockade or not, sinking his unarmed unarmed aid ships would be a war crime.

I get what you are saying. You're telling me I'm ignoring political and economical problems in my state, and to a point, I am. But, I've also said that I am postponing operations. To another point, the blockade is set up because that aid contains equipment to be used against allies. You don't expect me to believe there isn't gonna be guns and things in that. It's just too good to be true. He's also sending military boats, with his aid group. Like I also said, we will not sink his ships unless they run the blockade. We will send them back if they stay one mile away from the blockade.

I give you full permission to stop and search any cargo ships and confiscate all weapons. You may also stop any armed naval vessels and send them back. I do hope you would allow stuff such as food, medical supplies, and other refugee camp items through however, after searching his ships, if only as a gesture of good faith on your part.

I like that I now have permission, but I'd feel much more comfortable if the ships were stopped, then I delivered the goods.

Knowing Will, he'd probably have the aid ships explode in the blockade. This is the guy who creates a nation by deception, and then secedes and betrays those who gave him a second chance. If anyone's economy would fail, it is his.

Also, I fully see the point of what you guys are saying about the expansion of the PE. You should also look at it from a different angle however; Nick is only, as of yet, taking American nations. The Americas are linked together, not only in land, but also in culture. All of the additional nations he took are Latin countries. There are two Latin states as founding members in the PE. Thus, the cultural binding would make the nations more accepting of being taken over.

As for you, Erik, I don't imagine it would be too great for your nation to be meddling in the affairs of Americans, by sending troops in and giving at least some aid to a nation such as Texas. The citizens of France probably wouldn't support such an antagonizing move.

And in a final note, the FTSA is invading Puerto Rico. No one said it was theirs, so the invasion is beginning. 13 landing craft have landed on the beaches, 672 troops have been loaded onto the beaches already. C-130s with paratroopers are flying over momentarily, to drop the troops in.

I know it may sound odd to a totalitarian, but seeing as though you're putting all this effort into a rather pointless blockade of civil goods, you could very well convert the effort into security sanctions via a network of timed passes (anywhere from 24-36 to pass through such-and-such boundary) with intermediate escorts. In doing such, you would have to be given the manifest of the ships and you could even put a armed guard or two onboard. If anything goes wrong, light up the place with aircraft munitions. So, instead of wasting tax dollars on sitting in countless miles of water, you could put them on reserve to actually prevent threats in a timely matter in a time of need.

On note of the Latin countries, no one wants to be taken over. At all. There's an air of cultural heritage and a sense of boasting power when sovereign. Tooth and nail would be fought to keep their foundations as close to the status quo as possible. And there's is a great distinction between Anglo-America and Latin America. Anglo-Americans are privateers and idealists while the Latinos stand to be hard-working and conservative folks that may lack a bit of education here and there. That means they'll be more susceptible to being manipulated by third-party members that can easily make a will of might towards another cause. Hello prevailing civil wars of old.

Anyhow, France isn't making any antagonizing motions. And I don't see why the folks at home wouldn't be too happy about it. Sure they're losing a few dollars, but it seems they were just as willing to attempt to pump a few bucks in the Algerian War and fight for a chunk of decolonizing territory. As I see it, it's nothing more than the Pacific Empire's paranoia and past bill of having to fight amongst themselves prevailing to cloud humane effort into being war, war, and more war. My actions are there to prepare a nation in a time of need. If I really wanted to, during the earlier war between you two I could have actively declared war and gone gung-ho for no rightful reason. Or even actively engage the blockade. What I'm doing is nothing more than a pseudo-move of UN ideology. Besides, my economy would break in a war with the Pacific Empire; it'd be a logistical nightmare to throw some boys in Asia, sustain combat in Italy, an occupation force in Basque, and homeland security for the ADCC and my ties to Bohemia.

Ok, I really have nothing to go on. Realistically, it takes years to build a modern ships, but in game terms that's just impossible to work with. I think we need to come up with a universal timetable for ship construction...

With me owning the British, Danish, and contracting the French major shipyards, I should be able to pump out a batch of 6 large ships at a time, from what I've gathered from some research. So, lets go with 20 days for each batch. Construction for the first batch started two days ago.

Here's what happened: Will thought I'd be biased, but an FM I sent him changed his mind. However, he had beforehand requested Tom as combat mod because he thought I'd be biased. Now, he's changed his mind. For some reason, Tom declared himself combat mod even though no one has chosen him to be so.

But mah boiz, in defiance of Tom, Imma make the post for the blockade.

The Texan ships approached the Pacific Empire blockade, and were met by helicopters dispatched from the carriers. Commando's were dropped down, having instructions to use non-lethal tactics to secure the ships if need be. Luckily for all of us, people kept their cool, the ship's captains did not turn their weaponry on the PCU. In fact, it turns out the Texans only had five 9mm pistols and three flare guns in the aid fleet. After a look-over of the manifest, no other weapons were in it.

But the Pacific blockade will still not let them past, against all (my) logic. At least no one died.

I made this post also because I didn't want to take the risk that Tom's outcome would be a lot worse for us all.

With the enclosing states of Prusso-Egypt and West Russia, Bohemia has expressed interest of annexing both Hungary and Romania into a unified nation.

Spelled sparsely wrong, anyway, Mongolia is about 2/3 mountains full of ore and all sorts of other handy tan k making things. Also, if you didn't notice, I happen to have trade routes throughout all of Russia. There's a lot of stuff in Russia to build tanks with too.

Mongolia has pretty much a non-existent defense budget and uses old Eastern Bloc technology like the rest of sub-par Asia. And starting at the beginning of the war would mean building new factories, adapting old ones, increasing the budget, gaining a work force, training appropriate crews, testing new technology, recording field data, and then logistically organizing all of this in a matter of weeks. Fantastic.

The boys in in Upper-Italy took heavy casualties during the assault upon Milan. 94 men have been neutralized. It seems the remnant Italians have been mobilizing a majority of their last bits of armour into the area. Most of the earlier Mk.I AMBTs in effect were disabled; 14 of the 30. The newer models have done better neutralizing some of the more elderly Italian tanks. As it stands, roughly 34% of the area is in coalition hands.

Further south, the assault forces in Florence met similar resistance. However, several Italian Air Force units were engaged resulting in four downed French planes. Mobile SAMs eventually kept them from re-entering the area. Only 32 friendlies were reported as being neutralized. 44% of the city is taken.

In the east, minute combat teams launched ground-based attack in the Treviso area. The resistance levels are expected just to be the deserters from Venice; which is likely quite low. Half of a MCAP squadron have been set aside in case of heavier targets.

As it is written, you, China, are the catalyst of major war!

In the north and a bit to the left, the Russo-Mongols are attacking, and a bunch of sporadic fighting is happening. As soon as I figure out what Cole’s message means I’ll get back to you. He just said 5 armor battalions and 7 infantry divisions, and I don’t know how that translates against Ian’s 120,000 infantry and 13,000 assorted vehicles and Moffat’s unknown number.

From the northwest, Areetsa’s guys (there’s like, 6 rifle divisions of 15,300 men each and 6 tank divisions of 6300 men each, he laid this out in the way I find I best understand) are cutting into China from Kazakhstan. So far, Cole has not sent me plans to deal with them, so they’ll go through the Talmaklaknakn whatever desert quickly.

The Siberian fleet and Chinese fleets are still headed towards each other, no combat has been reported.

Great Colombian troops are currently in a siege in San Fernando, the enemy was surprisingly prepared, there have been heavy casualties, among those several MT-1s and few HAT-1s. Several Venezuelan convoys to reinforce San Fernando have been ambushed, effectively weakening enemy resistance in San Fernando. Reconisance missions to Caracas have also been executed, Caracas is as prepared for an attack as San Fernando was, if not more.

In an attempt to cripple the FARC we have sent a several task forces to search the Colombian and Venezuelan part of the Amazon Rainforest for any encapments or bases of the terrorist group. Similar operations are planned for the ELN.

The MIT-1 APC (Medium Infantry Transport) has been introduced in service a bit later than expected, little before the Siege of San Fernando. Plans for a bomber or stealth fighter are currently being made, though none have reached the development stage yet.

The French governance has issued for the surrendering of Italy into Roman and French hands. Or at least, the removal of their armed forces. It seems the Italians will be sustaining higher numbers of casualties and resource losses than necessary if they continue the two-front conflict. As it stands now, we do not expect a positive withdrawal of Italian resistance, but eventually coalition forces will prevail.

In light of the latter, the light task unit sent into the city Treviso successfully captured it under coalition occupation. A second-rate command base has been temporarily established to mop-up the efforts in the east. The idea now is to go ahead and mobilize the men and equipment that aided in Venice and press into Pordenone and Belluno. Earlier reconnaissance has reported only minute defenses, but contact from mobile SAMs cut things short. It is expected that they will be anticipating our air-cover, so SOF teams and rapid anti-armour units will go ahead and mobilize later this evening and neutralize the threats in Pordenone. From there, the same rapid task unit will go ahead and press inwards while Airborne units will be dropped a few miles north of Belluno and wait for further orders to engage designated targets.

Farther west, it has been reported that most of the enemy armour groupings in Milan have either withdrawn further into the city's core or have been neutralized. There have also been reports of higher youth conscription numbers. The French military body fears these men are being strung weapons without training, so less-than-lethal systems are being mixed in with occupation and urban force deployment. We hope to reduce needless casualties. No true forward progression has been noted thus far aside from a few city blocks.

In the south, the teams in Florence are experiencing more polar combat. It appears a few elite Italian assault groups have been sent from the defense of Rome to counter our forces and prevail in victory. Unlike most of the other combat efforts in the past month or so, these men seem to have far more resources. We've lost a bit of ground, but all in a tactical effort to reduce the neutralization of support equipment. The idea is to create a dense structure of attack that will offer a spearhead for this week's efforts. The very weak Italian Air Force remnants have also been reported and were able to disable two MCAPs and several artillery positions; some 46 casualties have been reported.

Stopping his ships and searching them, or attempting to confiscate anything on board is equal to an act of war.

EDIT: nevermind, issue resolved.

Roman soldiers have spotted Napoli over a hill, or at least, it's general location. With the Italian army in tatters, it's unknown what the city's defense is. Most of the army, or what's left from the south and north, is retreating to Rome, so we've heard. Romans conquering Rome? What's next, one man taking over almost all the New World in a few months- Oh wait.

In Venice, things are secure. We're moving out a few armored vehicles to assist the French where they need it. Neither head nor tales of the Italian air force has been seen, they're probably all gone or captured.

Everywhere else... there is silence.

Ok...you know I really hate to bug...but I guess I'm just a bugger about realism.

What port are you building it at exactly? Half your country is ice, and there is only so far a total militarist country and economy will take you... A small conventional carrier nearly bankrupt the entire Soviet Union, let alone a chunk of Siberia. I mean, even two supercarriers is really by no means super-unrealistic if BEAR is as military minded as you say, but it'll take tons of cooperation between all of you...


The Alliance itself isn't militaristic; to sum it up, it's basically just melding every member state into provinces of one overarching superstate.

Supercarriers? Eh... we come from RUSSIA. As in, if someone attacks us it'll be by land? Sea power isn't that important after all. For a place like England or America, where they're seperated from all the interesting places by water, maybe, but a mostly landlocked country like Russia has no need for a large, oceangoing navy.


Anyway: that I know of, the only recent material exchanges have been between me and Mongolia. So: I'm not saying Finn might have a deal with Dawn and Ian, but this'd be the first I've heard of it.

With aforementioned reasons of advancing nations near the land of Hungary, said country has decided to join Bohemia under the standing of a joint foundation to further expand all interests. With this, the annexation is labeled as being peaceful and should be fairly complete in the next few weeks.

A total of 73 people have died from complications suffered from the Smallpox Attack on the Portland International Airport carried out by the former Texas Rebellion. The Death Toll is as follows:

PE: 48
French: 15
Roman: 4
Germany: 6

An investigation has been launched to see how the LSR could've infiltrated the airport if the borders where closed, and how outside help may have been influential in this happening.

So far, the samples we have managed to recover have been divided in half, half going to Romans, half staying in the Secret Pacific Union Base. Not to be uncool to the Russians, but we can just not trust having biological disasters on our hands can we?

Also, the Roman Empire is displeased that our people died because of this, but in their memory, we'll ensure our sample is never used as a weapon. In fact, vaccines will be made with it in case someone decides to cross the line and us their own smallpox. The American sample is in PE hands, we have a sample, and there's the Russian sample.

As it stands now, the French government has reason to doubt the nationality of the Portland casualties. Main cause for this uncertainty would be the probable instigation for Europe to withdraw ties from within the Anglo-American system (i.e. Franco-Texan relations) and granted that it seems highly doubtful the only out-of-state casualties would be European. Seems like a best-case scenario to induce a harmful advocating of false justice. Thus, France cannot actively make a statement of either outrage nor passiveness; just one of suspicion.

And the invasion of Puerto Rico has completed. FTSA forces eliminated the final amount of the enemy troops at Utuado. F/A-38s bombed an enemy base near the town. After the bombing, the few remaining enemy troops retreated into the town and took several civilians hostage. The troops and the hostages moved into a large department store. The Puerto Rican troops not in the store attacked the FTSA forces as they entered the town and were torn down.

FTSA forces then moved to the entrance of the store, and the Puerto Ricans threatened to kill the hostages. As the FTSA troops stalled the Puerto Ricans, three squads of infiltration troops were sent to the back of the store. They broke in and fought through until they reached the hostages and enemy troops. The enemy forces didn't realize that the FTSA infiltration troops were behind them, and they were attacked silently. Many of the Puerto Rican troops were killed and no civilians were killed. The few remaining Puerto Rican troops were taken as prisoners.

In the other earlier battles, the Puerto Ricans were mostly killed or taken as prisoners. Civilian fatalities were kept at a minimum, and most of the Puerto Rican public has reacted positively to the taking by the FTSA.

FTSA losses stand as:
87 troops killed, 94 injured
1 AH-72 destroyed
1 Patrol Boat sunk
3 tanks destroyed
1 C-5 slightly damaged

300 troops will remain in San Juan along with six patrol boats to keep an eye on any suspicious acitivity by possible remaining enemy troops or insurgents.

The rest of the forces will return to Miami.

Meanwhile, the ports are very near completion and will also begin production shortly thereafter.

The conscription initiated earlier contained a 'buy-out' option for the upper castes that proved highly unpopular and has therefore been amended out. In addition to regular army, Special Forces are being trained to undertake covert and high-risk missions in foreign lands as well as to counter enemy Spec Ops.

Thus, we're sending in the boiz to deal with the Bulgarians, with their evil wantings of freedom. They shall be more strictly controlled than those who join us voluntarily. We've definitely got the Serbians attention here, so our military will perform it's best. Good thing we took half our troops (which weren't even needed) from Italy...

Players, BEAR and it’s minions have seized the land of China. It is written, only Cole can defend it.

Moving on. The Chinese army is faced with a multi-front war enfolding. From the northwest, Areetsa’s and Finn’s boys attack, without much resistance as the Chinese are focused on destroying the Siberian and Mongol attack forces. They’re moving trough the Talkmakmakam whatever desert with swift speed. Soon, I’m pretty sure some will be branching off into Tibet (which I advise liberating, because Tibet is cool).

The Mongolians managed to reach Bataou, their intended target, before meeting several divisions of the Chinese army. Greatly outnumbered, the Mongols have taken the initiative to resort to hit and run tactics until they can field more weaponry. The Siberians, meanwhile, have yet to run into the advancing Chinese. Having more modern weaponry, they may yet gain the upper hand. Also, in one of war’s more interesting scenarios, the Siberians have begun broadcasting pro-communist music, and even playing it as they move into towns. They’ve made the official announcement that any true Chinese communists are welcome to join them in arms. We’ll see how this works out later.

The air war is taking another turn. Though the Chinese attack planes and bombers have made a significant dent in the advancing forces and their SAM defenses in Manchuria, this has not stopped the Russian air forces from engaging them. Both sides are taking moderate losses, and the Siberians are constantly on the alert for those 6 stealth bombers the Chinese have, which are proving quite useful.

Several hundred miles off the coast of Brendanland, known as Japan to the rest of us, the Siberians and Chinese fleets are rapidly approaching. As soon as I figure out who will gain the upper hand, the battle report of that will be posted.

India's envoys to Bangladesh and Bhutan were rebuffed, but welcomed in Nepal. Nepal declined the offer of 'protective' ground forces but allowed full access to airspace and use of three major turnpikes through to China, provided the convoys adhere to stringent guidelines.

Bhutan's refusal to grant airspace passage has been flatly ignored in the light of evolving events in China, though no forces will be routed through that country in partial respect.

The ADCC has thus been called to favor China in its defense. Granted this has been of some deliberation for some time, 234,400 men have been set for a theatre against the Russian threat. At this time, Algeria has been accepted into the ADCC under the premise of future interests and defense efforts. This thus means that west Europe and northwest Africa is now at war with BEAR.

Of the French portion of this theatre, 24,000 Marines with accommodating ships and equipment will be in effect within the Baltic utilizing Denmark as homeplate and will link with the British Blue Fleet. Another 8,000 Marines with ditto marks on equipment and standards will link up with Red Fleet. 60,000 men from the FNA will also be flown into the Denmark area and prepare for any offensive action. The limited French Air Force will begin making regular patrols over ADCC territory anticipating strategic assaults. At this time, we're asking to utilize Prussian airspace under controlled and timed passes to mobilize Atlantic troops; this will be a temporary fix.

The rest of the theatre is made up of British, Spanish, Algerian, and Portuguese supplements. Morocco and Western Sahara have been spared from drafting in their limited services.

Now, we need a CM for the western front. Awe will suffice in this matter if he agrees to it.

Elements of the militia are also mobilized and placed on espionage alert, just in case. Last thing we'd need at this point would be certain of our more... "exotic" technologies falling into enemy hands.

He went to take a shower, should be back in ten minutes. I await the results just as bad as you guys.

Alright, I've got all the plans. I'm waiting on Cole now. I have something to tell him:

HURRY UP ALREADY I WANT TO MAKE THE JETTISONED WASTE HIT THE VENTILATION DEVICE!

Well, all Health class has broke loose. At my school, that’s equivalent to another place that stars with an H and is ruled by a creature of evil.

Naturally, I am delighted.

Alenian agents managed to wreak havoc on Chinese facilities, in a mostly successful sabotage operation. Several SAM sites and radar installations are now down (I rolled a dice and got 80, in case you’re wondering).

In Manchuria, the hundreds of Chinese armors and thousands of troops have engaged the Siberians in an all-out battle stretching dozens of miles. One day it’ll make a good movie. The Siberian armor is prevailing against the older Chinese tanks, but they have more troops. Similarly, a smaller force has engaged the Alenians and Finn’s d00ds up in the talkmtlaktmalktnhalktn whatever desert. Already slightly more experienced form Afghanistan, they’re doing better armor wise. Once again, Chinese infantry outnumber their own. We’ll see if this makes a difference. The Mongolians, on the other hand, are retreating towards the incoming reinforcements after their hit and run tactics didn’t work so well. Horses would have worked better.

In the air war, the larger Russian air force is swarming the Chinese, though not without significant losses, even with the Alenian sabotage. It will be about a week before Russia gains air superiority. Except for those stealth bombers, they’re proving quite sneaky. However, Russian satellites have been making strikes against known Chinese bases. The ones on naval facilites have been quite successful, so if the Chinese fleet survives the seas, they may not have enough docks to return too.

Speaking of water, this is where things get crazy. The Japanese have joined the fight, and with the Chinese, they’re heading straight at the Russians, whose forces have been bolstered by two of Dawn’s carriers which appeared out of thin air (like Will’s fleet!), unless I missed something. Russian EMC and whatnot planes made several preliminary passes, messing with radar and communications. But wait, a new challenger approaches!

The Pacific Empire has sent the Columbia-class uber carrier HGS Ardmore and it’s six small escorts have joined the Russian fleet against the Japanese and Chinese to “keep the peace.” Nick stated directly to me this is not a war, more of a control action.

And so begins the greatest naval battle since Jutland, and/or the Iranian Turkey Shoot, which was more of a disaster than battle. I’mma be brief here: Swarms of fighters from both sides engaged in the skies, explosions were everywhere, you could swear it was the Battle of Endor. The forces were relatively equal, leading to a very confused battle in jets flying way over the speed of sound. In the words of a Japanese admiral: “IT’S A TRAP!” Even though it isn’t. While the air war raged above, the two navies engaged, Japanese battleships and destroyers became the main targets for Imperial-American helicopters loaded with anti-armor missiles. The relatively light AA systems on the battleships leave them easy targets for the helicopters, especially when all planes are engaged trying to kill each other above. I’ll leave this battle as a cliff hanger to go on all night.

Meanwhile, Indian forces are attacking into southern China. Chinese aircraft, what was left and could be spared from attacking the Russians, bombed the spearhead of invading forces to moderate success, the jungle-hillyness (at least, that’s how it is in Civ IV. Don’t judge me.) of that area making it hard to hit them. I seem to have lost the Indian battle plans, but they’re up against several ten-thousands of troops and about one thousand tanks and a few thousand more armor. That’s all for now.

I lied, there’s a new front opening up in the West. Just as I predicted a few weeks ago (to myself), France and Britain have gotten their noses into things (as in, answering a call fro help). 70,000 troops and stuff from Britain are headed to Iceland (not this again), and more are being mobilized. They’re also sending a fleet to Denmark and the Baltic. Some 50,000 or so French troops are headed at Denmark as well. Now that they’ve moved, Dawn, it’s up to you to make the next play.

The die is cast. Let the real World War III begin.

You know in actual fact, I wanted them to go after communication facilites but what the hey, this is good to.

Lots of 'em. Most of them Dawn's.



Aaand in other news, we're wishing Volcitsas were air transportable.

We actually figured when you got in your first move would be to invade us. Like we said on Flickr, the first shot will not be cast unto you.

Very good, very good indeed. I wish to not have war with the Europeans either. I just want to protect the Siberian Navy fro utter annihilation .
