It's locked sir.

Merci.

Anyhow, the Moldovan campaign goes well. Only seven casualties were sustained in Komrat after it was fully secured. The enemy engaged coalition forces with a minute counter-offensive using medium artillery. Fortunately, they weren't gruesome enough to continue shelling the city in fear of harming civilians; thus they withdrew.

A light Finnish armoured reconnaissance unit has been sent ahead to test the defenses of Eel'tsy. If the intel serves to show light entrenchments, the assault will go ahead and be launched in the midst of early morning tomorrow. Otherwise, reinforcements will continue to feed into Glodyany until it is felt they can overcome the partially unprepared foe.

In regards to Mauritania, the Nationalist Republic has survived the night. The rapid deployment of the coalition marines lead for a swift defense of the capital city. At the moment, forces from the north (from Morocco and Sahara) are fanning out to secure the eastern-most boundaries by using major highways as markers. The Islamic Rep. has expressed great distaste for the foreign intervention and has withdrawn for the moment; most likely to re-organize and prepare for an all-or-nothing attack. The goal now is to watch their military movements with UAV and MCAP sorties and to help promote security amongst the local denizens.

Finnish units not in combat around the globe are being removed from the emergency deployment. While -this time- it was a false alarm, it has showed the Finnish HICOMM what could have been done better in the deployments, as well as the troops learning new skills. The raw manpower increase at the front lines has also heavily accelerated the bunker complex construction- the raw concrete has been poured and technicians and armorors from across the nation are moving in to install state of the art electronics and weaponry. The bunkers are also EMP shielded.

The FNV Herkiss is sailing off the coast of Kenya, and, if needed, can launch its massive payload at any resistance. Tom N. has permission to fire ballistic weaponry from the Herkiss at any target deemed necessary.

The power lines into the IRA are almost complete.

One third of the solar panels have been installed to date, unfortunately, their usefulness will only truly be realized next spring when the sun's rays are stronger. Two geothermal plants have been completed out of a total of 6, construction of the other four should take one more month.

To make more money, the BAMF has announced that taxes in all three member countries are being increased by 2%. To combat anger against this, better heathcare is being provided for everyone.

Finland is requesting funds from fellow F-35 user nations to develop a kit to upgrade all F-35 A,B,Cs into F-35P (P coming from the Finnish word Parannettu, meaning improved). The P is expected to have carrier/STOVL capability as well as lowered radar cross section, and a more powerful radar. Finland does not have the money currently to go about developing this at the moment, so if any F-35 user is interested in splitting development costs, upgrade kits will be provided for 50% less once completed. We hope that nations will enjoy this increased capability of a modern staple aircraft.

The Emperor has proclaimed the Bulgarian campaign a mission complete, despite at least another week of mop-up operations left. He then said that teams would be sent to find the WMDs.

>.>

The Romanian coast is secure, and the slice of Ukraine is now ready to be handed over to the Bohemians. We await their actions.

In the meantime, troops are re-deploying on a defensive basis in Europe, along the Danube river. The areas not using the river as a border are in our vassal state's hands, so they'll do as they'll do. I told Cisco to get started on his MOCs, but school I believe has returned to his world. Though the IRA and Prusso-Egypt-Middle East-Sudan-Ethiopia-Texas-Sweden-Norway are both considered semi-trustable, we're keeping a great deal of troops on alert in Eastern Turkey. Just in case.

Southern Italy has been declared an Exarchate, and the people are allowed to govern themselves in a way they see fit, as long as their leaders remain ultimately loyal to the Empire. A minor garrison of our own soldiers will be kept there. Hopefully, Italian self-rule will keep tensions down with French-occupised North. I did my reading, there's still a few groups disgruntled over the unification in the 1870s. You never know who will come out of the woodworks when (As a descendant of Southern Italians myself, my tribal instincts tell me to back them up. You know how people like to form groups).

At 08:00, as described earlier, the Islamabad invasion began. Regiments 100, 87, and 56 took part with 4,000 men each. 100 from the east, 87 from the west, and 56 came in heading 0 degrees (that's due north, for those perplexed. Or I could say heading 360, whichever is your preference). 87th met the stiffest resistance and was bogged down for hours by interconnected entrenchments and determined defenders; that situation continues, and scouts are looking for alternate routes to flank them. 56th gained moderate ground, but is paying for every block. 100th was resisted the least, since the attack was anticipated from the west only, but was counter-attacked swiftly but was able to maintain momentum. After the first day, about 15% of the city is in Indian hands.

Air support remains critical in this operation, and is being executed with great skill, saving many lives.

The remnants of the Pakistani fleet, having surrendered two days ago, had their ships impounded by the INS shortly after Islamabad was attacked. They had 10 destroyers, 2 Agosta class submarines (perhaps the perpetrators of the attack on the stealth cruiser? That is still under investigation), and 2 frigates. These will be inspected, repainted, trained in and recommissioned to serve with the INS.

Elections around the country have proved to be a major success. With an average 89% voter turnout, even our newest citizens are showing great participation in government. Our fuel cells are in full production, and we will be able to sell much more of them upon completion of the dam. Chadian resistance has completely come to a stop, and the integration of Chad into the USCA is nearly complete. Our labour corps have grown rapidly due to the high unemployment in our newest states. With no response from Canada/Libya, we are going to begin supporting Libyan rebels in the hope that they will support our eventual conquest of Libya. Negotiations with the Republic of Congo are going along steadily, and they may actually be annexed early this Fall.

Another strong push by the Indian army, closely supported by air, gained more ground in Islamabad today; mainly because enemy reinforcements were all but depleted. The enemy is retreating to further defensive installations. Block-by-block street fighting in the west is taking its toll, thanks to efficient fighting methods, steady progress is being made. East of town, the Indians broke through the lines finally and poured into the farmland outskirts, only to find the area heavily mined. Engineers are carefully picking their way through. The southern arm was able to make it within sight of the airport, but is held down by defenders; they have surrounded the garrison and will assault it later today.

The PCU is sending groups of 100,000 back to training, as it has been seen that the Reserve Forces are not as well trained as the Active Forces.

Also, a smaller fraction of the Active Forces is being cross-trained with the Marines and the Navy so if faced with a marine environment, our Active Forces are not completely confused.

Also, FYI, the Active Forces are just the Army. The Marines are a completely different department and a completely different set of troop numbers.

USCA Armed Forces has begun to experiment with older British frigate designs, hoping to eventually design a fast, light, and well armed variant able to conduct off-shore missile bombardment in relatively shallow water. Though it will undoubtedly be a long design process, the USCA will need sufficient naval support in order to carry out future operations. While we do not expect any prototypes in the near future, we are requesting the eventual use of Commonwealth shipyards (under IIS industrial agreements). Also, 13,000 troops from all branches of the USCA Armed Forces are participating in a training excersise along our small coastline. These excersises are focusing on tactics and manuevering deemed inadequete in the Northern War. Training will begin tommarrow morning after several victory parades.

The Islamabad airport is finally in Indian hands after a morning of bitter fighting. The superstructure is largely intact, so repairs should go swiftly. The cratered runways...eh, those fix too. The farmlands were sparsely defended and occupied easily to the east of town. The block-by-block firefights continue to the west. Progress is acceptable across the theater. The new ASULTs have been deployed and are making a logistical difficulty a bit easier.

On the peaceful side of things, over 100 purchased goods winged over the Indus river toward the UAC, all unarmed, and to be traded/sold for air superiority fighters.

Tomorrow, eight transports will be taking a route over the same areas, but then swinging north to Moscow to pick up the IRA students and coming back. They will be escorted by India to the Indus where they will be intercepted and escorted by the UAC, and then the same plan on the way back.

The Finnish boys sent to Eel'tsy witnessed little resistance during their reconnaissance press. In turn, the offensive to capture the surrounding area was launched early this morning. Casualties mounted few; some forty or so minor wounds reported and one two men in critical condition. Air support has been increased seeing as though the few SAMs known to the area have no longer made a presence.

The goal in Moldova is now to go ahead and capture the rest of Eel'tsy and make it a route to feed supplies into for the push east. Coalition forces are also to dig into Komrat and make it a temporary fortress, per se.

In the Nationalist Rep. of Mauritania, combined arms continue to secure the eastern boundaries and the little tidbits promised to Sahara up north. Minor skirmishes between the two republics have been reported here-and-there, but no major combat has been confirmed. Divided civilians continue to cause mass rioting which presses a "police conscription", as dubbed for the moment, to be made. Needless to say, coalition boys are handing Nationalists pepper-spray to subdue more escalating civil conflicts. Patrol vehicles have also been fitted with less-than-lethal munitions to discourage Islamic Conservatives from taking to the streets and causing issues during these divided times.

Following a combined push by all three branches of the invasion force, Islamabad has finally fallen into our hands. The surrender is taking place right now, and marks the end of a month and a half long campaign. Losses were high for us, nearly 9,000 men and pilots gave their lives in this struggle. Another 15,000 are still recovering from injuries.

Trials have begun on the new air superiority fighters while pilots get used to them. Now that hostilities have ended, most of the newer pilots are being sent to the new pilot's school which starts classes tomorrow.

Yup. I think I have them marked on the map. Do I not?

According to the map, you have the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, which according to the Google map belong to India, as belonging to Oceania. You do have the Lakshadweep Is. correctly labeled.

If you need the Maldives for any specific use, they're available to your ships [with escorts of course].

Anyhow, the UAC has been accepted into the International Industry Society. The proper appropriation of formalities should be concluded shortly.

As a later extension of this earlier post, French littoral defense exercises are underway. The goal is to go ahead and expand the defense of coastal regions that have been casted shadow over by the Gibraltar aegis. The Napoleonic Air Force is also getting some attention by running regular sorties out-and-about [within recognized] Atlantic waters and territories. Also, the Atlantic Internal Security Command (AISC) has been given a few pennies to go ahead and centralize counter-espionage and intelligence protection amongst the states within the ADCC.

The grand offensive, known as Operation Cobra, came to an almost anticlimactic close today when the last bastion of the Pakistani Army and several hundred volunteers surrendered and laid down their arms. Hemmed in on all sides, they knew they stood little chance. Dozens more attempted to cross the Indus and escape, but were chased down and captured by airborne infantry. The UAC has been warned that patrols are heavy, but India unfortunately cannot guarantee that armed volunteers did not cross into their territory. For now, though, the war for the Indians is over.

In the USCA, things are going very nicely. The new Hydro-Electric dam was opened yesterday, and with only minor cooling problems, it is nearly fully operational. After being on the market for only a day, 3 million M1 fuel cells have been sold domestically. These cells are able (but not limited) to power cars, homes, factories, helicopters, and other buildings. Due to the fact that they can be connected, entire cities can be powered by them (with enough storage space). Shipments to all IIS nations will be sent tomorrow, they will reach all other African nations next Monday, but will not be available in Asian countries for several weeks. We are expecting them to be available in the America's in 2 weeks time. Due to trade benefits, M1's will be much cheaper in IIS nations. Any nation wishing to purchase fuel cells for governement/military use, please contact me immediately through FM.

The Type-4 submarine sent on an excursion of trial testings has reached Sao Tome. It has been noted to perform gallantly during high-speed maneuvers and those of the normal status. The goal now is to go ahead and shift the submarine north once more and it will dock in Western Sahara. From there, the first weapons testing will begin in coordination with the littoral patrol exercises and target designation via air.

Moving onto matters within the Nationalist Rep., all of the pseudo-establish borders have been drawn in the sand and secured. Although civil disputes and harassment from the Islamic Rep. are present, the nationalists have been able to move forward and create a temporary governing administration. With this done, the ADCC (including Britain) has passed the African Progression Act in which will forward the advancement of better self-governing African states and international relations between them. In a nutshell, this will continue the express their independence from European Atlantic states and begin a pact within the alliance.

In Moldova, Eel'tsy has been labeled "secure; minor resistance" after a prolonged firefight between the ill-prepared defenders and the devoted Finnish militants. As noted earlier, Eel'tsy will be hub of activity for the presses eastward. Within 48, rapid armour detachments will be sent to engage designated targets in Floreshty and Lazo.

In the southern part of the country, the boys in Komrat were engaged again. Light enemy armour fired blind rounds into our defenses, but caused minimal damage. The MCAPs in-country were able to rapidly take flight and neutralize the threat. With that in mind, the amassed offensive unit will be pressing north into Dezginzhe while the Bohemian lads assault Kagul in the south.

Aside from that and on a defense note, the earlier practiced "SAM web" will expanded to include all Atlantic states. This will work as a network of mobile ground-to-air missiles that should eliminate most contemporary targets. The main focus will be on the technologically-deprived African states [including the Nat. Rep. of Maur.].

With the cessation of hostilities in Pakistan, and no other unclaimed lands in convenient reach, India is entering a military hiatus. Patrols remain in place in the conquered areas, and the garrisons are still manned, but the rest of the men have returned home for training and relief.

Thankfully, the $50 penalty sparked the IRA boys into action, since they were all at the airport when the transports arrived. They came back the same day and will start class tomorrow. They will be joined by 800 of my own students who will be learning along side them.

The fleet has returned to port as well, the vessels will be undergoing refits and revamps. The stealth cruisers (hereafter known as MkVI) will have their weapons stores augmented by newer versions of the X-bomb for long-range hitting power. Sites are being evaluated in the Nicobar, Andaman, and Lakshadweep Islands for naval anchorages and air bases. One will be built for each island chain.

The Air Force has also come home whilst most of the pilots attend classes. Test pilots are still having the time of their lives with the new UAC air superiority fighters, seeing what makes them tick. We've found them fun and easy to fly, very maneuverable and potent.

My secret project research (also hereafter known as SPR) is progressing on schedule.

Anyway, India's economy is recovering, despite continued re-armament. Having good relations with your neighbors does something for one's piece of mind.

Sounds good. As long as you pay for development we will send you the plans for the kits (that I am assuming you want since you have a great industrial capacity). These plans will be given to nations that pay for development, or a 50% price reduction for kits purchased from Finland.

Thanks alot Mr. Space Navy. The feeling of distrust is mutual.

As part of a multination submarine drills, Finland has sent three Type-4 submarines to link up with France's single Type-4 in the Sao Tome area, headed by the FNV Helsinki. We hope that usage of submarines will be optimized with these drills.

Sales of the new M1 fuel cells have been much higher then expected. In the European market, approximately 4 million models were sold, with another 6 million models in private orders (mostly from large companies wishing to cut down energy bills). Our profits are nearly double the initial investments, and to meet the high demands the USCA has approved of the construction of 3 new fuel cell factories (very close to the Congo Dam). IIS benefits contributed greatly to the success of this product, and prices are being lowered in IIS nations. We are also opening a new helicopter plant in order to make use of our newly aquired production rights. Another request is being made to the Commonwealth to hire 60,000 doctors from them, which will be needed to fill many new hospitals being built around the country. All members of the UCSA Armed Forces are recieving a 15% pay increase.

In addition to my SPR, India is continuing development of the space program (albeit at a very slow pace), Aetha Radar systems, and is beginning research on strategic bombers. These bombers are going to be able to carry out a variety of roles including bombing, airborne 'X' bomb platforms, and supporting air superiority fighters as a mobile AAM platform with twelve radar-guided missiles (acting as a sort of quarter-back, if you will) carried on the underside.
