The comment-counter was pretty useful, now long topics are rather disorganized.

Highlights:
-The Chinese War is pretty much concluding.

-The Pacific Empire is witnessing riots.

-New powers in Africa.

-Other.

The last topic needs locking as well. Yaddah yaddah.

Unless he comes and takes it. Which he'd be welcome to do; we wouldn't be able to get away with another unprovoked war of annihilation so soon, but if someone else attacked first...

Be especially interesting to see how he'd handle breaking the two most important rules of war; never invade Russia in the winter, and never start a land war in Asia. Since the biggest part of Asia is now a part of Russia...

I'd just like to point out here that Mongolia and Siberia are having the majority of the land, with Mongolia presumably getting the most production facilities as they don't really have very much in the way of manufacturing at the moment.

It's only fair, they're the ones who took the brunt of the fighting after all.

Despite certain admins prohibitions on the subject, India and the Union of Four wishes to continue to engage China on all established fronts. The 150,000 men and machines waiting for the situation in Burma to go down will now turn east again and head for Kunming. That leaves 50,000 men for the joint-op in Burma with Thomas.

I have no desires to relinquish my claims, since I came within a wrong dice-roll of claiming China for myself instead of India. Not two days later, if that, China was claimed. Meaning that I am exactly one or two days older than Cole.

Nick, you have to realize, your soldiers aren't Chinese, they wont shoot their own people, they probably don't like you either.

The ADCC would like to bring the International Industry Society to Japan and the United States of Central Africa (I'll probably just start saying Central Africa). The IIS is a fairly lax organization with regulations being quite lucrative and resembling those of SEZ/FEZ systems. This means higher industrial capacity through trade and shared infrastructure, more capitalist forwardness without severe taxation, and things of that nature. The IIS also comes with defense benefits in which expeditionary forces from fellow members may be sent to safeguard the industrial centers. Anyhow, if the both Japan and the USCA would be as kind to make a comment of joining or rejecting the IIS, things will go on without issue.

On note of ADCC unification, the mass majority of all involved states are now in acceptance of the matter. Debates still continue, but they are quickly neutralized with prevailing matters of defense in terms of their state's nature. The Speech of Union, as it will be referred to, will be given on the 10th of this month in coordination of the solar satellite launch. After that, joint defense exercises will commence to bring all nations into a single understanding.

As the Chinese campaign has ended, territory division is underway. India is waiting for word from her allies as to how the lot will fall. Her contribution has been rather large, and her hopes are high.

Meanwhile, Burma (Myanmar) is blissfully ignorant of the steel tide about to sweep it from two directions. Also waiting on coordination for that one from Thomas.

Anyway, a navy is (still) under construction, though sea-borne invasions are considered unlikely due to India's reputation at this point.

There are no "holes" per se. If he attacked a certain part of a wall, all units would shift maybe 100 feet down the line towards that area, but more air power would be committed to the attack.

Also, you're not as clever as you think. Your country was doomed the moment it left the PE.

@Ham: The wall is not "stupid" as you say it is. It's a smart move, covering what could prove fatal if you attacked me. It serves a purpose.

@Cliffe: You seem to think my country is still called Australia, well, no. We're Oceania, what forms when Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, and East Timor all team up and start uniting the much of the area in the oceans around us.

@Ultramarine: I will begin my naval and air bombardment shortly, also, my forces currently in the Thai portion of the Malay Peninsula will move into the Myanmar portion of the Malay Peninsula. We hope to easily conquer the Malay before we move into the inner regions of both countries. Also, thank you for your good, diplomatic means. I believe we can make a good friend out of you yet. As for aircraft, I'm going to keep my Aero Royale producing aircraft for me.

@Nick: Imma happy for ya, and Imma gonna let ya finish, but you gotta know, the Vietnamese were the best rebels... OF ALL TIME!

@Sponty: Your aircraft carrier is done, and ready to be shipped to France. (@Cliffe, requesting permisson for Suez Canal passage, now!), also, where would you like your carrier delivered? Because for me, after going through the Suez and Mediterranean, Nice seems like a good option. Also, have you started your shipments yet?


And time for the Oceanic News:

The Second Naval Fleet has arrived off the coast of Somalia, and the big battleships have begun shoe bombardment and carriers have begun launching planes. We're all about prepping for a Marine landing here.

Stealth Cruisers have also begun to take an active punch to the Somali Pirates. We are approaching every vessel in the region, and requesting permission to board. When we board, if we find any weapons or are threatened in any way, the owners of said vessel are detained. If any vessel tries to flee, they are chased down. And if any vessel tries to fight back, the are destroyed.


The First Naval Fleet has arrived off the coast of Myanmar, and we are beginning neutralizing the opposing Navy there, and also have re begun our campaign for air dominance. We now wait on India's next move.

With the conclusion of the war in China. Siberian forces will begin to pull out.

While it is expected that there will be resistance from the few loyalist forces left. Siberia anticipates only minor resistance. Therefore The ocupation force will be 3 stripped down reconnaissance battalions totaling 9000 men with 450 BTR-9s. They will be supported by a single artillery company comprising 5 howitzers.

The territories allotted have yet to be set in stone so bear with me as the following will be applicable wherever the final borders are set.

Siberian and Mongloian territories will be separated by a 1 km demilitarised zone. The zone will allow permit weilding siberian citizens to either join their families on the Mongolian side or bring them to the Siberian side.

Party administrative buildings are under construction. Upon there completion processing of property damage claims, land disputes and currency exchange will begin. The circulation of the ruble will begin as all Chinese currency held by citizens of The Siberian zone will be converted to it's equivalent in Rubles. Also, all deposited money in bank acounts held by these new "Siberian citizens" will be converted aswell.

The Siberian army corp of engineers has begun construction of modern thouroughfares between the major population centers. They are also contracting local citizens and any construction companies left, to work aswell.

Factories will be reopened upon the completion of the required infrastructure. Siberian specialist will be flown in and instruction of new workers will begin.

It is hoped that These new territories will make a seemless transition into the Siberian state. While we Begin to rebuild what was lost Siberia will contiue to honour the agreements with our allies.

These ships run at a production cost of about $1 billion (price as compared to Ticonderoga class cruisers of present day), which you can pay for your order with either money, equipment exchange, or any combination of both.

The United States of Central Africa has officially announced it's new military modernization program. We are selling our all of our utility vehicles in the agriculture/civilian market at a very reduced price (after fully modernizing them to make use of our upcoming "green" fuel cells/batteries) and scraping 120 of our old tanks (keeping a company of them in storage for emergency/temporary replacement use). To replace these we are ordering 20 C5A Arctic Wolf Main Battle Tanks, 120 M6A1 Jackson Main Battle Tanks. As to replace our utility vehicle fleet, we are building 200 GPMRV-F's, 100 woodland-painted Wolverine Mk2-u's, and 30 willys jeeps (for on-base/very low key operations). Our IFV's will be replaces with 100 woodland-painted Wolverine IFV's, 30 woodland-painted M113A5's, and 20 woodland-painted Wolverine Mk1r's. We will however keep our aging fleet of 80 Howitzers while replacing all AA with 40 woodland-painted M1097B Avenger-2's. Upon recieving our imported vehicles we will paint them in woodland camo and conduct internal modifications to improve eco-friendliness.

These expenses will cause us to dip into a medium ammount of debt, however our economy is expected to fully recover with the completion of our hydro-electric program, which is within days of completion. With our infrastructure modernization complete, our newly equiped military has been deployed to our western, southern, and eastern borders. As we are still in need of a large workforce to handle upcoming progects, we will reformat our immigration policy to make attaining citizenship a much safer and effecient procedure. Unemployment has gotten so low that many companies are having a dificult time finding enough workers to meet our increasing needs. Job training centers have been completed ahead of schedule, and foreign experts have been employed to train students. It is expected that our exports will soon increase by 600% in the near future.

I guess what I meant was that they will begin to recieve their new equipment as they get set up along the border(s). Also, my suppliers and are are members of the IIS, so we do have a bit higher of an industrial capacity. As for the willys, it's a cheap fix. I have already designed one, and I didnt think it was worth it to import vehicles for low key uses. Also, as you may have noticed, I just placed a very large order, and I'm trying to save some costs. My jeeps never be used in combat other than as an extreme last resort. If it comes to that, I think I'll have bigger problems on my hands then my jeeps not being completely suited to the desert.

The air strike on the Nigerien forces was, as predicted, largely unsuccessful. Right after the first fighters launched their missiles, a large force of enemy planes appeared.In the end the Algerian force was forced to retreat, however because the Nigerien had used almost all their remaining fighters to drive off the Algerian planes, many of the other operations being conducted were easily pulled off. A large number of unmanned helicopters were even flown in to the recently acquired airbases.

India is hereby announcing its purchase of 10 Cruisers from Oceania. http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/206492, to be precise. With full weapons compliments, they were purchased for $10 Billion. Making only a slight dent in my GDP, so it's realistic enough. We will be re-christening these vessels the INS Redoubtable, Honorable, Illustrious, Victorious, New Delhi, Bengal, Ganges, Indus, Yamuna, Gomti. As soon as these vessels are delivered, the crews will be ferried back to home ports by the Redoubtable.

Also, and a surprise (I hope) for the world is the highly clandestine project of building three fully equipped aircraft carriers. After some shake-down time and training for the landings by the three Aeronautica Naval air squadrons, these will support various actions around the globe.

Also, the Mk1 'Victorious' is now the F-1, and the 'Mungusi' is now the A-1 for clarification purposes. Due to relentless engineering, the F-1c has been outfitted with the R47 turbojet engine that boosts her up to around Mach 3.1 with good stability. Most current models are being retrofitted wing-by-wing.

As should be well known as of late, the ADCC has undergone unification. As it stands, no drastic changes have been made upon any of the state governments, nor shall there be. The goal for the moment is to set up or re-design similar ministries so information can pass more freely between the protectorates. Security measures are still rather high, but more elite military sectors have been relieved from baby-sitting.

The second solar satellite launch was also of success. There was some anxiety in the air as one of the rockets experienced a malfunction in igniting, but that was quickly fixed with only three hours in delay.

Also, North Italy has been recognized with a new governing office. Most of the officials from the "old" body have been contacted and were sought to serve the rest of their terms. This should create a more familiar system that the citizens can agree with instead of fearing an occupational system with minimal independence.

If you think India is third world, then you shouldn't be allowed near the internet.

And America has military robots because they have deep pockets. Algeria, just doesn't. There is no way that Algeria would ever be able to produce robots in the next 20 or 30 years. Just because you can build it with Lego, doesn't mean it's at all realistic for the time line.

And to counter your point further, America's military robots aren't even that advanced. If you look at the actual pictures, then you can see they are about a foot or two long.

If I find out more than 10% of the natural rainforests are missing, you're in trouble. Be careful when building your infastructure- Prusso-Egypt is dedicated to protecting the Earth's vital natural areas. Plus, there's a heck of a lot of useful stuff you can get in the rainforest, which would be a plus for you.

Also, Prusso-Egypt is highly reliant on such fuel cells for just about all of our road-type vehicles, although we barely have any automobiles outside of Germany. We're excited to set up regular trade for them once they're fully available. We have a ton of our own stuff to offer in trade, just list the kind of stuff you might need.

This will all be especially great once the planned Egyptian-Oseanic East African Super-Duper Railway is complete. We'll construct a branch line to the Congo just for our trade purposes :)

Oh yes, that's right. Well the way I see it, exporting such a precious commodity as Uranium, especially as the world is in need of smart energy solutions, can do nothing but good for my country.

And you'll be kicked from the group if you even say you're making a nuclear weapon, so there's no risk.

Consider yourself with a deal! I'll charge whatever Weagle is charging, although it might do us good to look up what the rate is nowadays.

If you think India is third world, then you shouldn't be allowed near the internet.

is far too advanced for this time line.

Actually everywhere I've looked has said that India's a third world country, but anyways what IS the time line. I know it's definitely not modern, with all the rail guns and such, but as I just found out it can't be more than 50 years ahead.

The Algerian forces recently broke away from the Nigerien border and started for the capitol. As they did, the GTH's came within firing range of the Nigerien tanks. The GTH's made short work of the tanks, but artillery strikes soon started to rain down on the task force, a group of unmanned helicopters were called in to destroy the field artillery. The helicopters carried out their mission without difficulties, and the GTH's were unharmed, although a number of the smaller unmanned tanks were destroyed or rendered useless.

Ok, lets look at this. India, in the real-world, one of the largest military powers in the world. Where half the world exports data and equipment too. Genius scientists building new military technology, and other technology.

Fast forward twenty years, and they're even further advanced. Look to their improving infrastructure, they have a couple trillion in their GDP, plus, railgun research is already underway, and would be even further advanced by 2036. So don't complain that India has advanced technology, because they will.

And Algeria? Just doesn't have money, or power. While your equipment wouldn't be unfeasible, its far too unrealistic for a country that could never be able to field such high tech.

PARDON ME for the fact that you didn't know the timeline... that's a very important thing to know.

It's only 2036, although we do have some pretty advanced stuff, and we just got started with starships, we're not near far enough yet for what most people would call giant robots... yet.

The fact that you're an African nation makes it much harder for everyone else to believe you're able to make robots. I say just wait for... a good while, build up your infastructure and economy a BUNCH, then maybe I'll let you have that big fun stuff. K?

We are, they'd just be forced to move very, very slowly because otherwise they'd probably snap their own legs with the inertia when they tried to turn.

Finland launches Operation Polttava Toivoa, a large military exercise designed to increase general military readiness. Mandatory military service age is reduced from 18 to 17, and enlistment periods are lengthened from 2 years to 3. Military budget is increased 5%, with most funds going into modernization of its forces.

Not that India isn't flattered about all the attention... Thanks for those who stood up for India (Thomas).

Speaking of which, even though India's carriers are undergoing extensive paces in the Indian Ocean and won't be available for some days, India's air forces are relentlessly pounding targets near and far in Myanmar. Indian troops have breached the border and swarmed over heavy and determined resistance. Since the Burmese (sounds less awkward than Mynamarian) are facing about 200,000 well armed and equipped, as well as heavily supported by tanks and helicopters; in addition to a second front stretching them thin.

The four cruisers not guarding the carriers are helping take out some long-range targets and generally providing advance cover as best they can along the coast.

Siberia will be begining its own forays into space technology. We ask that the Alenian government allow their scientists to act as consultants.

This would be dearly appreciated and would hopefully speed the timetable up.

Several prospective launch sites have been selected for final trials. While engine tests and final simulations are being conducted on stop-gap rockets.

These rockets will contain temporary orbital habitats from which construction of a geosyncronus space station will be enacted.

The hope is that a suiteable location will be found so that a magnetic cannon may be constructed allowing men and matterials to be flung spaceward-ho. The station in orbit will then recieve these pieces.

(DOn't even think of calling me on this one. The UofA engineering department has had videos of this as a possible rocket alternative for years.)

Well, the current price per pound is $46.50, but it appears to change easily, from news reports I saw when Googling it, the price has risen to $136 at times. I think Weagle did state his price, I'll go back and check.
