Well, the other one got pretty long, I really hate that there is no more comment counter.

Anyway... News:

China has been divided up by BEAR, PE, and India. Cole keeps a small, central, landlocked portion.

Oceania and India begin to divide Myanmar.

Prusso-Egypt and Oceania have begun to embark on their joint African Rail Transportation System project. known as "the ARTS".

Other powers in Africa expand to unify the relatively un-powerful area around them.

Speaking of the ARTS, I have decided that contacting other countries to propose this idea t would be a good idea, as it would make for a much more international system.

So, Osean Libya (still weird...), the United States of Central Africa, and anyone else interested are invited to join in with this operation. You must share a common border with either my or Cliffe's portion of Africa, and you must fund your portion of the rail line yourself.

Hmm, it might take me a while to 'jump' on that since Osea is currently annexing the southern half of Libya but, it shouldn't take too long though(probably by Sunday if it goes smoothly). There is STRONG chance that I'll assist in this operation on anyway possible!

In Somalia, Troops have advanced to take out enemy resistance. The Somali Army is drastically under equipped, and they are losing the fight. Infantrymen disembarking from pick-up trucks are no match for tanks and IFVs, and our armies are easily moving into the towns, where Somali citizens, oppressed by the local terrorist groups and gangs, are unsure what to make of our invasion. These people are handed out pamphlets explaining the government reorganization and improvements we will make once we have rooted out the seeds of military dictatorship.

Eagle eye UAVs are being used to seek out bases of the Somali army. AR-13s are then called in to raid and destroy any and all bases, including border guard stations,supply depots, and any other points where vehicles and armed men originate from. Without Armor, the enemy is without much protection at all, and we hope that systematic destruction will eliminate hostiles quickly.

As army heavy equipment pushes further inland, more security forces are being put ashore in ports and harbors up and down the coast. These security forces will track down any armed insurgents in towns behind official lines, and also serve to safeguard citizens and make sure that non-combatant casualties are kept to a minimum.

France has set forth a coalition assault upon the Sao Tome and Principe Republic. 4000 Portuguese, Spanish, and French Marines have launched from Western Sahara to capture the two small islands with only a tiny self-defense militia to withstand the brunt of a contemporary Western assault. The schedule hopes for a surrender within two weeks and integration only three days after that.

This operation, Operation Anelace, will be the first Atlantic attack under a unified system. This should help solidify ties amongst the troops and create a sense of brotherhood.

Total war? Not really.

Six divisions doth not a total war make.

Maybe a major border skirmish, but not a total war.


And remember: Alenia is not the sort of state that provides for people who abuse governmental tolerance.

I'd like to take back my previous war sim post, I forgot I only committed a couple divisions, not my continent-killing army of 200,000. So, to be realistic, I'll say it will be two more days until my portion of Burma is secure.

The rest was good, just the number of troops changed. I'll send the rest to patrol duty in the newly annexed provinces of former China; now known as the Province of New Goa.

Many Chinese nationals are being relocated and scattered in the outskirts of India in order to decrease the chances of revolt en masse, though most Chinese retain their locations. Most of these new citizens are being put to work on government jobs, often including the rebuilding of their former home towns.

Plans are being drawn up for the logistics of patrols along the Indian-Oceanian DMZ, but in light of good diplomatic relations, they will be small to non-existent before long. This new land to be annexed will be called New Bengal.

The troops of the United States of Central Africa have crossed the border into Burandi. Marines and Helicopter-Borne Infantry already in the city are moving to their designated targets. Pamphlets have been sent and are being distributed by local police warning citizens to seek shelter in designated safe zones. Police and medical centers are being allowed to stay in full operation and will not be targeted. Units already in the city are going to communications and media outlets and are (peacefully) making them shut down for 12 hours. No ordanance is being dropped on the country, and the only military targets are the Army Headquarters, and the Army Vehicle Depot (yes these are actual places, I checked satelite imagery from google maps). After securing these targets (by peaceful means or through combat), aide workers and medical teams will enter the city and confront the local populations. They will provide basic medical care, and the USCA required vaccinations. The president and his cabinet will then proceed to the prime minister's private residence and discuss the future of Burandi. If all goes according to plan, Burandi will be a state by monday.

Burandi's capitol is secure. After several brief skirmishes the Burandian military surrendered. With only 3 casualties on our side, Burandi lost 16 of their soldiers. There was no civilian collateral damage. Civilians are allowed back into the city, where they will recieve all UNCA required vaccinations. Our president will be meeting with thier president and prime minister in their Prime Minister's private residence. Our soldiers have recieved a large pay raise, and are celebrating their victory among Burandians excited to become USCA citizens.

The men involved in Operation Anelace are expected to land anywhere around 2100-0000 hours EST tomorrow night. One of the GMDs from the borrowed Green Fleet has been tacked on to the task unit and will begin engaging targets two hours ahead of the landings if the governance of the republic does not surrender immediately upon viewing the marines amassed just outside of their littoral zone.

Aside from that, France has begun the encouragement for petrol stations to convert into harvested energy stations. So, rather than pumping petrol into vehicles they'll be selling electricity. A government bill has been passed to aid those businesses who wish to convert but need a slight hand. The whole goal is to ensure there will be a very light dependency on oil and the military can receive the vast majority of the resource seeing as though its a needed commodity for the contemporary military of the ADCC.

Also, vertical farming is being preached to the agricultural industry. The idea is to increase production by some margin via relieving the need to rely only on the Earth's direct topsoil. Instead, structures resembling multi-story parking garages will stand erect and host several stories of growth. The main crops being directed towards this manner of production would be corn, potatoes, beans, and things of that nature. Hopefully, this will catch on amongst the remaining farmers and put a few extra dollars in their pockets. Harvest will be semi-robotic seeing as though larger machines will not fit in the accomodating space; the process will somewhat resemble the rice harvesting in modern Japan. Again, a bill to aid these businesses of interest has been granted.

The PE is transferring the USD to our territories in China. The soldiers we had in our beachheads are just now beginning to arrive there. Since India was JUST beginning to get in those areas, we are expecting a fight till the end. Suppression of rebels is one of the top priorities. All rebels found will be sent to prison.

I just wrote a long, entertaining story for ll you guys, but it didn't get through mocpages security.

Anyway, long (really long) story short, Oceanian forces in Somalia were surprised today by an attacking force of the combined Armies of Kenya and Tanzania. At first taken aback, the meager forces in the south of Somalia (as most operations were undergoing in the north), were pushed back.

Right now, OAfD troops in Mozam have been alerted, and are trying to counter attack in Tanzania, while more forces are being diverted from he north of Somalia towards the fight in the south. A mass of eqipment and men have been put on the fasttrack back in the home islands, and we hope to be able to put enough men and machines in Somalia by a week from now to push this fight around. Our hope is that the marines in Somalia can hold out for the week.

Details on the motives of Kenya and Tanzania were given to us by our Ambasador to Kenya, who told us that the countries teamed up against us for two reasons. first, because they though they should take a stand about our growing presence in Africa, and two, because they had been asked to help Malawi back during the Malawian invasion, but turned down the request, and now hope to redeem themselves.

I will post weekly combat reports to keep everyone updated. And yes, we do plan on turning this war around and invade right back.

India has finally reached its boundaries in Burma, and is sending special teams to secure bypassed areas and round-up remaining enemy forces. Indian forces are awaiting rendezvous or coordination efforts with Oceanian forces.

Shake-down time is wrapping up for the carriers and crews. After a few minor technical problems (one in which left the Euroclydon embarrassingly without power for eight hours when a conduit burst in the engine room. Thankfully, the reactor core wasn't compromised) they have been cleared for action. Eighteen destroyers are on the board for construction and delivery to fill the gap in naval power.

A new type of counter-insurgency/CAS aircraft is on the assembly lines, jet powered this time in order to decrease casualties by AAA. Should hold a larger weapons load as well.

The ADCC has decided to grant 5,480 coalition troops from France, Italy, and Spain to Bohemia for the war in Romania. 1/3 of these men will be integrated paratroopers and the rest consists of regulars from the respected nations. This will hopefully draw in more morale and coordination amongst the combined forces. Not only this, but this will be the first conflict in which the ADCC will attempt to utilize Modern Indo-European as a single tongue for the boots.

Also, Finland has granted an additional 1,000 mechanized infantry as a show of good faith. This should be another strategic placement of European singularity and shine light on future hopes.

In all idealism, this will be a lucrative manner of operation in which European allies may interact in stressful situations with what should be positive reactions and data can be recorded upon said item of sociology.

And your point? I hope you know that when I attack, I have a plan, and infantry isn't the deciding factor in battles, its not like we are going to send waves of infantry straight at each other. And the fast attack vehicles are MPIT's so the infantry can change them to suit their needs. plus my new T- 101's will make short work of their tanks even though only 500 are participating in this battle. And I haven't even sent in wave two yet.

During the ongoing airstrikes throughout the day today in Pietersburg, it looks as if major progress has been made.

Operation Anelace became a tangible invasion as of 2312 hours EST. The British GMD seemed to have caused the governing body to coward in some respect, but their pride left them to continue on in regards to resistance. The marines landed near Jou in the south as a measure of not having to deal with the heavier militia assaults near the CPZ. No immediate casualties were sustained due to the lack of enemy training and resources in a combined arms effort; this resulted in four casualties on the enemy side. Less-than-lethal systems have been encouraged for the moment seeing as though few targets have been spotted by forward reconnaissance and there have been even fewer engagements.

Also, an even 400 men have been left aboard the landing vessels to traverse closer to Santa Catarina. The GMD will be sent along with them to engage any motorized forces spotted by coalition drones. Thus far, the operation is seeming to be lucrative. By mid-week, we should be pressing closer to the mid-CPZ zone.

As a tack-on, the [Western] Saharan Coast Guard has received extra funding from the ADCC as to bring pressure off of the expenses of Morocco. By the beginning half of next month they should be well-trained and will have some 30-40 MRNCs in service along with a joint practice of two GMDs.

The invasion of Romania goes well and Bohemian forces have spearheaded towards the coast. The Bohemian CENTCOM is rather confused as to Rome's involvement in the invasion. To our knowledge, Bohemian forces were to secure the entirety of the Romanian territory. It is vital for our nation to gain the Romanian coastal territory as it would allow us to open ports and harbor a navy of which we currently do not have. This would mean Bohemia is no longer landlocked. Bohemia feels very strongly that Roman forces do not need to be involved in Romania. With so much coastline already under Roman control, there is no need to take Romania's when it wouldn't make a difference to your nation, while it is absolutely vital to Bohemia. In order to come to some resolute, we are offering that the southern Danube territory of Romania be granted to Bohemia in return for Rome to receive patrolling rights to the Danube as a sense of a defense equilibrium. A grant of good faith, if you will.

Much of the obsolete Eastern Bloc equipment currently in the Bohemian Armed Forces is slowly being sent to the scrapyards. The auto industry is being encouraged to open defense branches. In turn, the metal-working industry will be receiving the scrap and working alongside the defense branches. The energy industry is converting to "green" methods of production in order to reduce pollution and allow more of the oil resources to go to the military.

Roughly twenty airfields have been captured, as well as a major airport close to the coast. Nicaraguan forces have been far outclassed by the high-tech weapons and vehicles and top-notch training of the troops of the FTSA. Several Nicaraguan military bases have been utterly decimated. A large Nicaraguan assault force was obliterated by an AH-72 escorted FTSA assault force, and much of the Nicaraguan soldiers surrendered. At this rate, the invasion will be completed in mere days.

The Nicaraguan navy has been completely obliterated as well. Late Saturday night, they sent everything they had (including several battleships and four aircraft carriers) at the FTSA assault fleet force stationed off the coast. In fact, earlier that very night, two FTSA submarines had been pushed closer to the coast about five miles away from the main force. When the Nicaraguan attack force went past the submarines, they were able to alert the rest of the FTSA forces to the impending attack. MAB-1s and F/A-38s from the coast took care of much of the assault force, and the remaining parts were blown to smithereens by the rest of the FTSA fleet after a badly thought out attack. Only one frigate and a few MAB-1s were lost by the FTSA.

Oh, I agree completely, I have no right to be there. However, Russia never really had a right to be in China either, so...

But, onto business. Like I said, I'm a very generous man. I'm not sure if the comment made it through or not, but I did purchase coastal territory in the Ukraine right by Romania. Pictures speak better than words, ironically: http://www.flickr.com/photos/thenotsogreat/4898246786/

This will build upon the Class III EMP defense procurement of old seeing as though nations quite close are investing in said technology. This isn't meant as a full-proof method of systems defense, but rather an increased measure of resilience in case of attack.

Excellent, newer MOCpages can now process special characters, to a degree...

Anyways, can do. The Forno, despite the name, costs much more than your average kitchen appliance. I'd estimate the cost at about 6 million dollars (*pinky to corner of mouth*) per unit in today's American money, with all the stuff on my flickr photo. Of course, I can strip it down to just the main cannon and coaxial MG, which would be about 5.7 million dollars.

Well, discount or no, I can't go around paying 720 million for a bunch of tanks. Maybe a deal, I'd pay 500 mil for 90 with just coaxial and cannon + 45 mil for 8 with all the extras. So 545 million for 98 tanks, how does that sound?

But, onto business. Like I said, I'm a very generous man. I'm not sure if the comment made it through or not, but I did purchase coastal territory in the Ukraine right by Romania. Pictures speak better than words, ironically: http://www.flickr.com/photos/thenotsogreat/4898246786/

You get that little connecting bit of land, plus travel rights for river and land, plus access to use all ports in the area free of charge. Except the part where it's technically my land, but if we're both having a presence in the same place, it'll either spark a war or defuse one. Do you have a counter-proposal?

I suppose your proposal is acceptable. Bohemia will accept your offer, but not with a pleased demeanor. Then again, what can you expect when someone else takes what was one of the main reasons for invading a country.
I'm guessing you'd like to create a DMZ along our boundary lines in order to further ease apprehension? Bohemia does thank Rome for its "generousity", nonetheless.

Also, you still have direct coastal access through the land I'm giving you that's a part of our deal. Moldava is a tiny nation, I'm sure you can buy a passage through there to get to the part of Ukraine I bought. So if you don't want to deal with me, you can get directly to the ocean anyway.

India has finally deployed its newest CAS aircraft that is a hybrid, albeit low-level, fighter that could take on most secound-world country's air forces. With a better strike package and comparable maneuverability, the Stormhawk should have a long career.

Final pockets of resistance in Burma are being hunted down and killed/captured. Certain units have been particularly vicious and have needed to be reigned in, mostly from Bangladesh, which has ancient tribal animosity for the Burmese. Because of the relatively small area in which India is involved, they will be secured sooner than the Oceanian forces sections. As soon as both have secured the areas, we will make sure that our borders are as previously defined.

Approximately 1,000 of the Mungusi are slated for scraping/sale, about 800 are being reserved for home guard duties and conversions to light transports.

In Liberia today, a small recon group consisting of 4 Marder APCs and an AMBT-1 was ambushed by a large number of rebels. The soldiers fought fiercely until reinforcements in the form of several Blackhawk helicopters arrived. This skirmish showed several flaws in the Marder. One, it's armaments cannot fire 360 degrees, leaving them exposed from the back and most of the sides. And two, the wheels are unprotected. The SRGL seeks a replacement soon in either the Dachs or a foreign design.

Operation Anelace is going smoothly. The marines have been boasting about the arrival of Green Fleet in an attempt to bring fear to the locals. The presence of several GMDs near a mere island should cause some panic and pressure on the governance. Aside from that, the men near Juo have secured the immediate area in a 3km radius. The militia is of little presence, but rather disorganized guerrillas have engaged coalition forces. The goal now is to get mobilization efforts going so they may move south to Porto Alegre where Green Fleet will be hosted; midnight raids should be happening tonight.

Also, the some 400 men sent to Santa Catarina were delayed by choppy waters. They were stuck at sea some four hours before being able to land. From there, they made short work of scouting the immediate city and then calling in the heavier equipment. An additional 1,200 allied militants from their respective army branches have been granted to the operation.

We've found several FARC bases most of which had hostages, after failed negotiations they were freed through force with several hostage casualties, and the bases were later bombed. Scout UAVs were sent to quicken our search for any remaining FARC bases. Surrender was given as an option to them, but they have violently denied this offer.

The base in San Andres is nearing completion, we estimate it will be finished, at most, in two weeks. Most of the base is underground, as to not weaken San Andres' tourism based economy. Several agricultural campaigns have been launched, especially in products who are rarely found outside of Colombia in hopes of increasing the economy.

The people calling the shots started the thing with the intent of finding the guys responsible and dealing with them messily- which I think is a great idea, you know, it's just that they've failed. And now they can't exactly call it off, because they've got the people wanting the blood of whatsisname.

The Finnish government announces that due to its massive spending on military and infrastructure recently, the country is nearly bankrupt. The government resorts to printing several billion dollars in currency, while adopting Old China's position of strictly regulating it to prevent inflation.

All Finnish troops are undergoing ski training to help fight another winter war, if needed.

Using some of the new money, the Finnish Army has started construction of bunker complexes along its borders, although the government stresses that it is not a sign of deteriorating conditions or of mistrust between itself and neighboring countries.

A new shipyard is being built with the majority of the civilian worker force; due to the amount of manpower, construction is expected to take one month. The shipyard will help speed up production of the many foreign orders for Type-4 Attack Submarines.

Granted Portugal has just undergone a new hand in governance, it is left to either leave the ADCC or remain. Also, the Portuguese Marines sent with the coalition in Sao Tome will be returned to their homeland and replaced with the first grouping of re-educated Italian Marines; this should cause little hassle.

Anyhow, France would like to welcome Portugal to the fray. And to boost up the standings between us, France would like to purchase 30 Mako-class gunships. As it stands, France is a tad short on a new-generation devoted attack helicopter and we greatly need a stop-gap solution.

Now that's change we can believe in. So a question to you, Sir Combat Mod, I would like to in the future run some special ops missions to other players countries during "Peace Time". Nothing planned *cough cough Nick cough* but an alternative to war. Stuff like freeing hostages, destroying things like ships, assasinations, etc. Are we allowed to o that.

-Dam construction is continuing at a great rate (expect it by September 1st)
-Fuel Cell factories are still in their early stages of construction, but will be finished well before the dam.
-Training exercises were a great success.
-Foreign troops have left, and with a substantial pay raise for troops, they are quickly becoming much more disciplined an effective soldiers.
-Negotiations with the Republic of Congo are going miserably, with them making outrageous claims about our military modernization and expansions. We are being compared to Hitler's Third Reich. These negotiations are not expected to last much longer, and the Republic of Congo will most likely stay a sovereign state.

Well, not INVADING, per se, just maybe a little bit of forceful resource acquisition.

Not going to bother now, though, until I can find out if Mr Neutral can be trusted.

Which I seriously doubt.

Sure, if you and I split the combat moderation that would be good. It's a relatively easy process, I'm sure someone with your knowledge will be more than up for it.


I motion that Awe be included in such things in all situations where he isn't directly involved in hostilities.

Given the potential for pro-ADCC behaviour, it's only reasonable that a pro-Villain be included to balance things out.

The boys in Sao Tome have done well by securing a good majority of Porto Alegre. Intelligence has had a hard time determining the enemy combat force granted guerrillas and militiamen are working with two different agendas, per se. So, the few men we have on the island are being cautious. This has paid off to some extent with only six casualties and some eighteen reported on the enemy side.

Anyhow, the some 1,200 coalition reinforcements has been bumped up to 2,000 with airborne supplements making up a large bit of the additional 800. With that said, the total number should be 6,000 well-trained men on the island to push closer to the CPZ.

Though still waiting for the Oceanians to hurry up, the Indian Army is putting in place several semi-permanent defensive outposts; most equipped by the now-rear-echelon A-1 along the New Bengal border. New outposts are springing up all across the new boundaries of New Goa and surrounding areas, after the fashion of pre-war conditions.

The High Council has commissioned a board of Indian scientists, the best & brightest, to produce new and better weapons and vehicles to increase homeland security.

Most of the fighting men have returned home from the Chinese war, having been relieved by new recruits taking over sentry duty, to a warm hero's welcome for vanquishing the 'Unholy Essence' of their great rival, China. Colonists have continued to expand in settlements established in conquered areas, generating manpower and income for the peace-time economy.

In an attempt to halt USCA expansion, the Central African Republic bombed the State Department of the Republic of Congo. This however, resulted in the alliance between the RC and the USCA. As a coalition, we will invade the Central African Republic with 40,000 troops tonight, and another 20,000 troops tomarrow morning. It is expected that the Central African Republic will ally itself with Chad, and this war will not be a brief one.

The USCA is dropping pamphlets over the Central African Republic. These pamphlets will contain information regarding the upcoming occupation, the war, and information about the eventual annexation. These pamphlets are very similar to those dropped in Burandi, with instructions for civilians to head to designated safe zones. Police and Hospitals will be allowed to remain in use and will not be targeted. We expect to have all cities and towns along the border secure by 0800 hours, when the second wave of coalition troops arrive in-country. The initial invasion will commence at 0100 hours.

The Indian High Council has, in an untimely fashion, demanded from Pakistan that the ancient boundary of the Indus River be restored within the month. The military leadership has frankly told the High Council that they must be out of their collective mind since Pakistan is not only a nuclear power; but India is still regrouping from its recent wars. Since we've been at war for nearly a year solid, though successful and beyond expectations in some cases, it is not wise to make it a constant state. The High Council retorted that China was nuclear capable as well and didn't act on it, and security is a priority.

Time will only tell if;
1: Pakistan will secede to demands.
2: India will be prepared to go to war over it after all.

Wait.

You just invaded a whole country in at most three days. And you're claiming you can attack and subjugate five more (two of which are in Nick's hands by Caupo knows what means, and are thousands and thousands of miles away) in seven days.

On the note of timelines, Bulgaria's forced annexation has reached a halfway point, with Sofia, the border lands, and the Black Sea coast secured, but the heartland in native hands.

We've made a swift incursion to the areas south and east of the Danube river in Romania, and that small slice of Ukraine is being held for our friends in Bohemia. We've even taken the liberty of paving the way for a docking area for ships. You wouldn't get this "generosity" from any other empire! I highly recomend buy land in Moldova or outright conquering it to preserve your so-called freedom for a direct link-up to your personal slice of the Black Sea coast. Our new ports in Romania are still open to you though.

Finn has 5x time compression on.

So something that should take 50 days takes 5, something that should take 10 days takes 2, etc. etc.

In this case, 15 days becomes 3.

We've all got a little of it, but for most of us it's just 2x. That's how we can design and begin producing entirely new tanks in less than a month.

Or build a space-going warship in ~45 days...

Speaking of which, I've got a loose framework for my brickbuilt Tunguska done.
No reason for it to be impossible for me to actually build it with bricks.

It is reported that the first batch of Atlantic troops have landed in the USCA. Some 5,000 coalition troops and accompanying equipment have been sent in aid of Central Africa and their campaign(s). Their intended role is to focus on helping securing the lines so allied troops can press forward. Of course, this will go along with helping in handing out supplies to the refugees and the like. 2,000 USCA troops with light-loads will be flown to France overnight tonight with the return flights.

Aside from that, the defense industry has been granted a set of guidelines and contracts to upgrade some of the ageing MRAP hulls to new standards. This will go along with the new joint patrols contracted with the USCA government. Said patrols will serve as a hands-on training exercise while simultaneously helping secure the more extended boundaries of host nation and neutralizing rougue cliques. There should be some 800 men on two-month routine rotation.

In other news, the invasion of Sao Tome took a sour turn as twelve men were taken casualty due to an urban ambush in Santa Catarina. A few MGS boys later rolled in and neutralized several suspected structures that may have been the site of these attacks; little is known seeing as though bullets fly fast and men run hard. Aside from that, the coalition forces further south were able to secure a good portion of the remaining Porto Alegre some hours before Green Fleet arrived. The latter has been re-supplied and re-fueled and directed to the north point of the island to act as a discouragement to Sao Tome's governing body. Anyhow, the reinforcements coming in within the next 48 hours from the "homeland" will be directed to Neves. This will give us a foothold to the northern edge of the isle. The boys in Porto Alegre will make the first push to Principe 12 hours after the Neves invasion.

Bohemia is very pleased to hear the progress. Due to Bohemia's combat operations in Romania, the completion of the promised 30 MQ-11 UAVs may take slightly longer than expected. This is because the majority of the industry currently producing military equipment is busy replacing the scrapped Eastern Bloc tech. and supporting the war efffort. 15 MQ-11 "Yeoman" UAVs are currently enroute to Britain.
