Today, Marines participated in a simulated amphibious assualt at an undisclosed area on Lake Michigan. Instructors took up arms to portray the defenders. The participants used chalk bullets in order for a safe live fire exercise. The goal is to have maximum effectiveness and minimal casualties in the event of conflict.

In other news, several deserters from the PCU military were shot last night. SRGL soldiers mistook them for an attack, and didn't hesitate to mow them down.

Some 8,000 men from Finland have been amassed in Dijon along with 45 Commando (roughly 1,200 troops) from the Commonwealth. These troops, along with the 2,000 from the USCA, will be organized and recognized in Atlantic Operations Command (ACO) as part of the coalition theatre known as Operation Guisarme. The latter consists of 18,000 coalition boots aimed to occupy Moldova under Bohemian governance. The hope is that the expected 15,000 Moldovan defense forces will be outmatched and outclassed by the aforementioned nations' military power. Guisarme will be launched at 2330 hours EST tonight with the direct targets of Ryshkany and Leovo being struck with airborne boots and accommodating light armour.

Also, two squadrons of MCAPs have been dedicated to the USCA for the duration of the war there or until a homeland crisis occurs. They'll be fitted with weaponry for the CAS role. The service crews will also be flown in.

From my ongoing building spree (I'm feel like posting today so I don't go entirely inactive):

The Prussia class destroyer has been completed, and will be posted sometime after the Talon of Horus class destroyer is completed using a hull from my friend's house, most likely. Otherwise I would use the same hull as the SMS Prussia by removing the structures and turrets and other stuff.

Yes, both ships are miniscale. Not microscale. At least, I believe they are. They're based on the now well-known HMS Hydra.

The war in the Central African Republic is going very well for coalition forces. After a series of counterattacks, our troops have gone back on the offensive. Chad is devoting large portions of thier reserves in the hopes that the war won't come into their country. Our forces have sustained very little casualties compared to the enemy, but we are expected more counterattacks tonight.

The 13th Light Division, currently on holiday in the FTSA, has become, for lack of a better word, bored.

Now, I'm not saying that driving up American streets the wrong way in armoured vehicles while playing "The Eternal PCU" at maximum volume isn't entertaining, but some things just don't fit in a city. Helicopter gunships, for instance.

So we've got thousands and thousands of Russians from all walks of life, bored out of their skulls and with no idea of the native languages of the country they find themselves in.

Some of them are sightseeing, which is probably the best event as long as they don't cross the Texas or Naziland border.

The rest of them? Do a youtube search for "bored + afghanistan" and you'll know why we don't want to think about it.

The offensive in Neves went according to plan, give or take a few hours on the timing, with the immediate area being secured and mop-up crews clearing the lines behind. Nine casualties were sustained in our coalition while thirteen have been confirmed in reference to the enemy. Although short-lived, the presence of Green Fleet has done well in striking a bit of fear into the governance. They've made contact with the AOC for a final word to be recognized. In all hopes, the island-nation should be confirmed as an overseas territory within the week.

Aside from that, the combat in Moldova is fierce. The airborne troops sent into Ryshkany experienced a severe anti-air threat and hostile terrain. Some six aircraft sustained severe damage and another two were shot down; mounting in thirty-six casualties. The light armour dropped along with them proved to be of little to no good. However, the fact that we were able to breach their airspace and amount a nicely-sized presence in such a short period of time has shown the Moldovan defense forces that it's only a matter of time before we press deeper with our assaults. Venturing to the south, the teams in Leovo experienced similar conditions but with more positive results. Being closer to the border, heavier [wheeled] equipment was able to traverse the short distance from Romania and create a pincer-type motion in which the meager Moldovan numbers with limited exercise and accouterments could not prevail. As of 1013 hours EST, the area has be labeled "secured; minor resistance" and fortifications are underway to get an active structure going. Hopefully, we should be able to make a treading offensive against Chimishliya within 36-60 hours.

If we succed, the IRAF have no more control over the region and therefore force to retreat to Java island without any airlift. In that scenario, we should be able to block their fleet and force them to give theirself up. UMN had stationed some of its cruisers in java sea to hold their retreating ship and our ground troops combined with airsupport should make their movement in the matter of hour. That is all.

Sao Tome and Principe have proposed a ceasefire in the case of negotiations. With their militia an ill-match to our hardened troops, no cause for violence is needed with the match already in checkmate. The assault force meant for the first landing in Principe has been redirected to the national capital of Sao Tome [City]. In case of false talks meant to deceive the Brass in-theatre, the assault force will land in the city and secure the governance.

Aside from that, the campaign in Moldova is going at a fair pace. A more "clean" air route to send supplies to Ryshkany is underway. With the nation known to only operate over a dozen SAM systems and no presentable AF, the goal should be easily accomplished. A coalition assault due south-southwest will be launched within 36 hours upon the city of Glodyany.

A bit south to Leovo, the strike against Chimishliya proved favorable. Over half of the direct area has been captured with moderate resistance; only eighteen casualties sustained. The allied movement has been encouraged to secure the rest of the area with medium-heavy armour following in close pursuit. Hopefully, the terrain abilities of the MAATs and MGSs sent to accompany the assault unit will prove to be capable. If not, more air power will be dedicated to the campaign.

In a masterfully planned "Operation Cheetah," India has built up and stormed across the Indo-Pakistani border to reclaim their rightful border of the Indus River. The textbook three-prong assault has Army Group North, Center, and South pushing for strategic and tactical targets everywhere.

"Operation Sealion" also stepped off at 0900 with the carrier Euroclydon supported by no fewer than six cruisers, which used their stealth capabilities with devastating effectiveness. A-2s and F-1s aboard the Euroclydon relentlessly pounded the Pakistani fleet into withdrawal, while suffering only light losses to AA.

On the ground, Indian forces met with stiff and dogged resistance, until breakthroughs were achieved in key areas forcing the Pakistanis to fall back. An unexpected counter-attack left AG Center reeling due to insufficient support by Indian armor. If it weren't for the swift and decisive actions of the 15th Tactical Support Sqn, the results could have been tragic.

In the air, PAF American-built F-16s are performing better than expected for such and outdated craft. Though the AA missiles of the PAF are relatively easily defeated by modern countermeasures, Pakistani pilots have been rigorously trained to close in for the gunkill. But with similar size, speed, agility though with better armament, the F-1 is winning the fight at the rate of 4:1. A-2s are also contributing their part to the effort and holding their own against second-line PAF aircraft.

More later.

Anyway, in Africa, things are progressing nicely. In the South, Commonwealth forces continue to push towards the western coast, with little real organized SAU resistance. In Ghana, 40 and 42 Commando are proceeding ahead of schedule. Four-oh overnight managed to disable most of of Ghanaian command and control facilities in the capital. Four-oh also has seized the Parliament building and the head courts, effectively cutting off the head of the government. The president still has not been captured, but we expect this to happen soon. Four-two Commando has begun to spread out into the country side, eliminating any areas of resistance, helped by the four MCAP's Green Fleet operates, and helicopters. We expect the country to be under complete control in as little as three days, thanks to the incredibly poor state of everything within the small nation.

With other foreign powers gaining ground in northwest Africa, the ADCC is pressing talks with Mauritania to become a protectorate. If these talks become a failure, coalition forces will do what is needed to secure a vital sector of territory that will serve as a prime border against relatives with an unstable position in terms of Atlantic relations. For the time being, forces are being prepared for another campaign.

Aside from that, internal talks within the ADCC have also begun as to recognize Western Sahara as a full-fledged sovereign territory not associated with Morocco in regards to governance. Of course ethnic sensitivity and national strength are of the utmost priority.

As a tack-on, France, Italy, and Spain are looking to get a combined 8,000-12,000 new recruits for reserve service. However, with the European population being of more elderly individuals than youth, these men may be hard to come by without a short-term conscription being put into play.

The first day of fighting in Pakistan has drawn to a close with the coming of nightfall. Though F-1s continue to use their strike capabilities to pound strategic targets in the darkness. Sporadic firefights are springing up as scout squads meet.

Modest gains have been made, as much as 20km in some areas. Supply lines are being laid, and positions are being reinforced for the renewal of hostilities at the coming of the dawn.

At sea, the first day's fight can be thought of as a victory for India. The air power caused immense damage to the Pakistani fleet. At one point, the Pakistanis drew close enough to put some shots on the cruisers Victorious and the Gomti. Line-of-sight has a way of defeating stealth tech. In terms of numbers, India sunk ten destroyers and a couple other support vessels. India lost thirteen planes and six pilots, seven were recovered. Numbers aren't exactly the telling force here, since India has about, oh, 13 ships. The air power seems to be the deciding factor, as always, and India will use it to its greatest effectiveness.

Highlights from the front: our "Orrange dust" missiles were fired at kee military bases at each country I am invading, in hopes of destroying tech and demoralizing enemy troop. Also, my army is now pushing into Bishkek, Dashowuz, Nukus, and Dushanbe. Meadium resistance is expected. We are hoping that these countries will not ally together, so we have moved more infantry, AA emplacements, and tanks, to the borders separating them, we have sent statements to them stating anyone crossing or trying to cross to one another will be fired apon.

Yeh, all for now

Not to be a baudet, but France is still requesting an order for 30 Mako-class attack helicopters.

Anyhow, the talks in Sao Tome have proven to be true in the sense that they were not a means of diversion. Sao Tome and Principe have come to the understanding that an occupation will exist no matter how much they resist, thus they are now accepting foreign administration as being the higher governance for the republic. However, the dialogues continue upon matters of economic integration with the Oro, re-distribution of civil policy meeting Atlantic regulations, and French basing rights. Hopefully, two more days of time will conclude the talks and Sao Tome et Principe will become zones of ADCC administration and federal democracy.

Great news today (for me & allies, at least), India has finished the construction and deployment of no fewer than four Capital battleships and twenty destroyers. The gantry at Pondicherry surpassed expectations and produced two war wagons in the time the other two made one, a true testament to the overwhelming manpower they are equipped with. On top of that, a forth aircraft carrier is being constructed in dry dock there.

The presence of these vessels have made quite a difference in the naval side of the war, immediately scoring several successes in skirmishes.

However, tragedy has already struck the new fleet. In the final stages of the renewed "Operation Sealion," the INS Incaga was giving chase to three Pakistani destroyers when four others flanked her and the original three turned to join them against the Incaga. At the worst possible moment, the hydraulic gun stabilizers failed on her two triple turrets. Now facing seven destroyers with her main guns off-line, Incaga was in serious trouble. Seeing her situation, Captain Neszera ordered his destroyer, the Uluru, to aid the Incaga. At flank speed, the Uluru sped right into the Pakistani formation and fired guns and torpedoes to both sides. She was lost inside of five minutes, but let the Incaga escape, and cemented her name en memorial.

It was another bad day for the Pakistani navy, several revenge raids were made, costing the enemy another eleven vessels.

The land and air wars both go well, Army Group Center has reformed after yesterday's brutal counter-attack but is still behind schedule. The other two groups have made more modest gains. New simulations calculate reaching the Indus inside the month. Pakistan has virtually run out of front-line fighters, and has lost much of their production capabilities due to strategic bombing campaigns.

In the United States of Central Africa, our dam project is nearing completion. Our factories are finaly complete, and prototype fuel cells are begining production. These will be stackable, and able to be transported and filled via truck. We have began designing comercial cells able to connect to urban powergrids, or to power single buildings. All cells are rechargable, and can easily be refilled at our dams. The war in the north is going surprisingly well. The Central African Republic is fully secure, and coalition forces have almost siezed Chad's capitol, however we are expecting large counterattacks within the next few days. Plans are being made on how to divide the land and resources after the war, but civilians already liberated have welcomed coalition forces, and we don't expect any civil unrest from the conquest. Negotiations have continued with the Republic of Congo, and as allies in the war, we expect to these negotiations to go along much more smoothly.

Oh, as clarification to my earlier timetable for the invasion. When I said "Within the month" I meant within a four-week time period, not before the end of August.

And, on to the sim again:
The Incaga has been sent back to Pondicherry for repairs, and rescue operations found only four survivors of the Uluru's crew of 150. They described in detail the horror of their ship's final moments. They were given honors and retired from the service.
Operation Sealion is winding down now, Pakistani units have confined themselves to their home ports to defend them. Invading these will be hazardous and will necessarily be carefully considered.

Resistance on the ground has stiffed considerably, allowing AG Center to catch up due to the other two Army Group's inability to go further. Intelligence has troubling news and warns that the relative ease thus far may have been deceptive, though details are still sketchy.

The PAF has all but ceased to exist thanks to round-the-clock bombing efforts against them on the ground and in the air. Several aces are beginning to emerge from this conflict. It appears though, that while these raids are rather successful, more fighters are missing than have been claimed by pilots. Intelligence has suggested the Ratel SAM be deployed in light of information.

Test firing of the Magnetic booster concluded today. In total 10 of the 15 pods followed succesfull tragectories while the remaining 5 have ben scattered to the winds.

Minor setbacks and technical issues have been encountered during testing. The most worrisome saw several "test subjects" crushed on launch.

Siberian engineers are looking into ways of drawing out the launch sequence and aleviating the sudden G-forces expirienced.

Though these are believed to counteract stresses enough for safe transport of material supplies. It will be many years until the launch process is suiteable for humans.

Until then the launch station used for sending crew and material for the receiving module will become the means for sending our brave cosmonauts into space.

On a more economic note.

The Siberian government is now allowing foreign governments and companies to use the booster. This is done at a cost of 1.5 million per launch (Rubles). Lauches can be carried out with a maximum cargo weigt of 20 tonnes. Any more and the capsule will not have enough force to reach the outer atmosphere. The Siberian government accepts no responsiblity for loss of cargo.

The troops in Sao Tome have converted to less-than-lethal munitions for the durations of the peace talks; which should end by tomorrow. The finalized terms are being drawn up and the de facto set of documents will hopefully be signed either late tonight or early tomorrow making Sao Tome et Principe official Atlantic territories. This also means the first 1,200 men will be withdrawn from the over-sized occupation force starting within 48 hours or less; these men will be directed to aid the British forces in their African campaigns.

Anyhow, the talks with Mauritania have been somewhat neglected, as felt by the ADCC, and are not passionate enough to draw the attention of said nation. France continues to press for ties to be made and we're keeping our fingers crossed. If our hopes aren't met with equal effort, the invasionary force promised a few days ago is still in reserve action. Some 17,200 men with the addition of another 3,200 reinforcements are awaiting their orders and performing routine exercises.

Aside from the harsh politics, France, Britain, Finland, Italy, Spain, and Morocco have started a new marine current power program along with a tidal stream generator program under the Hydroelectric Progress Act (HEPA). This will improve or found new [underwater] turbine farms to begin another renewable energy progression. Western Sahara will most likely be added to the act once its official stance as either a territory or sovereign state will be decided. The fear is that there may be too much political turmoil in which case may damage the programs.

Finland has announced today that due to utilization of the ISS' combined industrial capability its order of 15 Type-4 submarines are complete. Production of the 20 requested by the Commonwealth is commencing.

In related news, Finland has test fired its class of conventional SLBM weaponry- the tests are an extreme success. The device is slightly more powerful than the Russian "FOAB" which was to this point the most powerful convention munition in the world. The warhead's composition is classified. All submarines are being loaded with 2 such SLBMs, and this missile, (classified as the Type-1 SLBM "Nimbus") is now being offered to any nation which has purchased the Type-4 Attack submarine (currently the only platform capable of launching the Nimbus).

As the world falls into larger alliance categories and more fickle foreign policies, Europe still remains separate de facto. In light of the latter and the recognition of the former, the Union of Federal Europe will become a greater standard for the European peoples within the ADCC, Finland, and Bohemia. The UFE hopes to increase the present defense coalitions, economic regimes of trade, and more stabilized political foundations.

In terms of economics, the base unit of currency will be the European Standard Oro [obviously based from the Napoleonic Standard Oro]. Transition will be fairly lucrative; the first few months will serve as a period to end the circulation of the base nations' own currencies and begin the production of the ESO. Also, as a lead on from the IIS, production rights to technologies are automatically assumed by the member-nations with minor return base rates (10%-15%).

In terms of politics, the standardized language amongst politicians will become Modern Indo-European. Eventually, the hope is to get our boys in boots speaking said language as well, but baby-steps will be the course for that.

Moving the light to defense, coalition forces will be maintaining similar methods of operation as are already in use. The only thing different will be a larger morale effort and kit quality. Technological integrations and faster distribution of needed equipment are the the highlights of this note. We should be able to get a more uniformed standard progressing amongst the involved armed forces with the simple use of more extensive combined training.

Conclusively, the founding of this union should be the shining light for the European people and more understanding internally. Our foreign policy is, more or less, neutral with the core of ideology focused on self-defense rather than offensive or interventionist happenings. And of course the standard of living for the involved citizens will be brought by combined efforts.

Status: Urgent
Situation: In Doubt

The darkest estimates from the Intelligence Bureau wasn't half the story. At 10:00 hours, the Pakistanis pulled off a devastating counter-attack. All of the manpower they could muster, plus all the volunteers they had weapons for, all the leftovers of the PAF, and every tank they could scratch together (even a few foreign models from museums) attacked Indian forces across the entire front. Thankfully, Indian radar provided some advanced warning, just enough to scramble a token defense.

The PAF fighters struck Indian aircraft everywhere, in the air and on the ground; about half the IAF's losses so far have been while they are taxiing for takeoff. Squadrons of F-1c's have been scrambled from all over Indian territory, including every outlying outpost in range, and all three aircraft carriers are making for the coast, with heavy surface support. The Ratel AA batteries are performing flawlessly, but there are so many targets.

In the front lines, units are holding out as best as they can. With some warning, they constructed rudimentary entrenchments and laid obstacles and mines in front of their positions. Most are able to hold out, and breakthroughs are being counterattacked in a effort to seal the breaches. Ammunition is becoming critically short, CA-1 transports are making heroic efforts to resupply them.

There have been no signs that the Pakistani Navy will join in the attack, but they are being carefully monitored by Photo-recon versions of the F-1c.

Somehow, we will hold out and prevail, though it is not clear how just now.

However, if refused, many measures may be taken, as I am already extremely suspicious of you as of now, Spontaneous. It almost appears as if you are plotting Prusso-Egypt's demise once again by forming massively powerful European alliances. I still haven't forgotten what you did to us, I never will, and I probably won't stop reminding you either.

I would also lightly propose converting the Oro to an electronic currency such as the Prusso-Egyptian Federal Credit, and make it compatible to said currency. This would allow your currency to be compatible and workable in Prusso-Egypt's dense style of infrastructure, which sometime soon I will also give details on, for there may be many benefits to converting your nations' infrastructures to be at least compatible with ours.

I like how the rest of the world can be aligned and happy, but because you're hurt (can't say I blame you) about the last go around you won't let us merely become the EU as things should be. So, we have the BEAR, India, Oceania, and even the now-dead WHA or whatever Nick established, and then we have the more smaller, elderly Europe. And I'm not trying to be stereotypical with "He did it, I can too" policy, but I am trying to create an emphasis on the "power grid". We pretty much have no weight to pull leaving us without a proper momentum in the political world and easily picked off.

And if I (or any of us for that matter) wanted Prussia, I wouldn't be mobilizing troops into Africa and securing buffer zones, spending my budget on energy foundations, nor worrying about BEAR more than I should. Honestly mate, although I've seen much progress in your character, I still don't like your fickle foreign policy. In no way am I trying to be demeaning, but in no way I can I happily accept someone who I'm uncomfortable with and then share an economy, language, and idealism.

The "fickle foreign policy" isn't so much always your external actions so much as it is that we don't know what you're doing half the time . . . Not only this, but you may come down upon a member and then come to a proper realization of better understanding in a matter of moments (nearly sitting the fence). Honestly, it's a bit tricky to undertake an explanation. The best way for me to put it is that you're a rather unpredictable character; and that isn't necessarily a bad thing if you know how to utilize it.

And again, I have no quarrel with you. Nor do any of the other members as far as I know. The main thing is that we need a belt to wrap up our little guise and keep us upright. This isn't an offensive or interventionist union as much as it is a proper alliance of similar states. For the time being, you're the outlier of interests. Pretty much meaning you are a bit more leftist than we are and your technological and political standards internally don't really match up into a homogeneous mixture with ours (again this isn't meant to be a crude remark).

As a solution, I'm sure we can set a pact with you as a means to elapse time until we can polarize towards uniformity. Pretty much increased trade with minimal taxation and coalition defense agreements between you and we. A a gesture of good faith until we can work things out or work together more closely. As it stands, we haven't really built our relations to a point of absolute trust nor directed thought in unity.

And again, I have come across a much greater respect for you as an individual. I think you've matured greatly over the span of the original group and now. We, as a whole, just need to cope as a unit within the land of Europe and not just cast shadows on each other.

Don't expect it to say yes.

Don't worry, I'm not. However where diplomacy fails brute force wins, and vica versa.

Yes it will.

Because eventually if it doesn't the group will die and we have to start over.

But that's to be expected

Dang it, I was about to ask to join this Euro thing when I read the word: Freedom. Hey, I'm not trying to fool anyone over in my Socialist Republic.

Oh, don't look surprised, I WILL win in Pakistan (That's what's so nice about controlling your opponent).

Finland is really getting annoyed with this character. Implied violence is not winning you over well in my nation.

While neutral at the moment Finland will take any sign of aggression seriously and it will not be tolerated.


Alenia does not threaten, Alenia either does, does not, or files for later consideration.

If we WANTED to go around murdering the heads of various states, it'd be fairly safe to assume we'd kill them first, and THEN start talking about it.

I got to thinking, when we all annex all the un-annexed lands, fight all the wars, and we're all afraid to fight each other because we're are all too powerful; what if we set loose the zombie apocalypse?


Nope, by then we'll have invaded Mars. When every tank, every gun, every man and every round of ammunition has to be shipped accross huge distances, it doesn't matter how big your state is at home, all that matters is whether you've got more equipment on planet at the time.

But you have to make them lose fairly. That's pretty much the unwritten rule.

You people and your giant alliances. I've got a non-aggression pact with Dr. S, my tank contracts, and that's about it. Everything else is up in the air, though I can count on Nick to back me up.

Negociations of peace are being instated and most resistance in Turkmenistan has pretty well died down, cept for some small bands of radicalists Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan have been subdued. Spec op teams are being held with the tast of taking out the radicals before anything real bad happens. All for now

That's why I refused the offer to join BEAR, I prefer working solo with a few friends to being bound by contract.

You really did't get what Areetsa tried to say all those times eh?

BEAR doesn't want you to be bound by anything. BEAR is basically a series of non agression pacts and free trade agreements. There is no compulsory allegiance, just a heightened sense of brotherhood. We support each other because we have similar economic and political systems and values. Not because we have a contract to be upheld.


Sorry if that comes off a bid mean. But, it seems that a lot of people have the wrong idea of what BEAR is.
