Algeria (plus the rest of the N.A.C.) wants peace, and is on the defensive.

Understand what? That you're upset because the single sentence you send me doesn't get noticed in my CRs because its too general?

Let me tell you something, when you say "1,000 planes will attack German tanks..." And my combat report states that "Russian planes dogfighted with the German Luftwaffe", that's what happened. Just because you say they will attack German tanks, doesn't mean they automatically get past the German Luftwaffe.

Another example: When you say "A large force of heavy armor is to flank the Germans and counterattack...", and I say "A large reinforcement for the Russians was bogged down today after the German stealth bombers wreaked havoc on supply lines..." that's what happened. Just because you say they're going to flank and counterattack, doesn't mean they are instantly at the front, they still have to deal with the trials of getting there, which takes time, if not losses.

Dude, calm down. I am not upset. I understood why you were confuzed. So I guess i'll redo the FM?

Israel goes well. Their people will be treated with respect until they do something bad. In fact, I plan to make Jerusalem an international city, so that no one faith can have any greater claim to it. Live in peace, dangnabit.

Although if mag-strikes gunships can dodge MANPADs and AA I imagine the higher quality Russian aircraft could small tank launched missiles.

Well, every action has it's consequences. I would have just attacked his shipyards or something. Anyways, what's done is done. Cliffe's regime seems to be falling apart, despite him being the group creator.

Ironically, it's the same group of people taking him down again. Kind of. In fact, it's really only Evan involved this time.

That was an option, but I fiquered the Aswan dams would provide more of a distraction. I imagine no one was hurt because of all his helicopters and such. His farming industry has been crippled, and the Nile is no longer as reliable though. Now even if I do lose, others will carry on picking up where I left off.

Alright, here we go. It's a little late (I was watching 'A Clear and Present Danger'). I didn't get anything from Cliffe, so I had to do it off the cuff. Here's hoping I don't become an outcast:

Ok, some orders that apparently didn't get processed yesterday first, then the rest.

Early this morning, six aircraft of unidentified origin showed up on Egyptian radar. Fighter intercept was vectored in, but radar contact was lost after only a couple minutes. But Egypt had seen this movie before and continued toward the last contact to intercept the Indian manufactured flying bombs headed there way. What they didn't see, indeed no one could, was the 20+ stealth aircraft that swarmed over them in an instant. The intercept failed and the thermobaric weapons impacted supply lines up and down the front, causing massive damage to troops and equipment. This attack was followed shortly by another flight of 6 non identified aircraft. This attack was less successful, since only two got through. More damage was caused. The stealth aircraft ranged freely up and down the theater, shooting down several more Egyptian aircraft before vanishing as quickly as they had come.

Sudan:
A large PCU invasion occurred today, in support of the apparently wavering Egyptian troops. 5,000+ PCU troops landed in the theater along with their support to combat the advancing Algerians, they will not be in position until tomorrow. Meanwhile, a full-scale assault of the Algerians was commencing in the northern areas of Libya. Huge amounts of men and hardware are blasting their way across the desert to make about 10 kilometers of progress against what must be heavy Egyptian resistance.
In the air, an all-out air offensive by the PCU has seriously hampered reconstruction efforts by the Algerians on their factories, but most of their priority targets were heavily guarded by AA and AAA. Algerian Hyperfalcons made things hot on the way in and out. Several AA positions were eliminated by the PCU. In another area, the air support was busy engaging the PE to attack the approaching PCU air craft and dozens of men and several vehicles were destroyed. The large amounts of mobile CIWS made a good account of themselves, claiming several aircraft. X-bombs made a rather large dent in several areas of the Egyptian lines. The battle is still ongoing.

In strategic Algerian air attacks, a nuclear reactor was destroyed inside Egypt, causing many casualties and cutting back severely on power generation in the area.

On the southern front, Nigeria also launched a massive assault targeting Egyptian forces. 20,000+ men were dropped into Libya with support. The Egyptians are reeling from the assaults. Their offensive has been largely successful, and also ongoing.

Algeria is beefing up its defenses with submarines and frigates. Patrols are being conducted by submarines round-the-clock.

Losses:
PCU 12 aircraft (bombers and escort. I didn't have numbers)
Algeria: 25 David UV's, 8 tanks, and 4 AAA batteries.
Nigeria: 4 F-1s, 1 TPC-7, 1 A-7.

The development phase of new Phoenix-class pocket carriers has finished, and production is moving forward. It will carry only 30 aircraft of all types, including the new NF-2 superiority fighter. Examples of this type are expected to reach 8-10. The refit of the four Abidjan-class amphibious assault ships has finished and the Oceanian coastal patrol ships are being allocated 5/piece. 10 Hueys and 5 P-7 attack helicopters will base on each one.

Patrols continue in the Indian Ocean. Production of the Su/EW-225s continue, alongside the F-3.

Antagonists on the Egyptian side are warned that India will not tolerate intrusion of naval forces in her waters. This has since been expanded to include the PCU.

I see. Though Cliffe is my homeboi, even with our disputes, sometimes great strife is needed before a meaningful peace can be accepted. That's what WWII was all about. Germany got a bad deal, but had the ability to recover, WWII came next. If you can make a good deal, like the results of WWII, then you won't have another big war for a long while.

Oh, I noticed it alright. My army is made of mostly NATO stuff, with Serbia being the Warsaw Pact exception. I'm trying to replace it all, but hey, when you have hundreds and hundreds of tanks, you tend to want to keep them around in a world like this.

Who specifically? Most people in Europe/Asia have territory comprising of both former WarPac countries as well as NATO. Others (like Finland) bought from both to remain as neutral as possible. So yes, some armies are rather hodgepodge.

He should build to match his claims first. That macro war chariot looks like a box on wheels with a tube on top. Not much deserving of the "longest range". That is to say, when you shoot a projectile and it turns into a missile mid-flight, it would have longer range than a normal canon, I'll give him that, however, something like a TOW would probably have equal, if not better, range.

He's saying that it has longer range then my artillery!

Public Battle Plans:
All of I corps (along with a logistics convoy of 500 trucks, 100 GPMRVs, 500 engineers, and 1,000 medical personnel)will move from their defensive positions and begin an offensive campaign into Libyan territory. They will advance relatively slowly, so as not to outrun their support. Providing air cover will be a squadron of 7 F35Ps, and all Avengers previously deployed into Algerian defensive positions. Large amounts of propaganda will be dropped over populated areas, advising civilians on places to take shelter and how to remain safe in the coming occupation. Information will also be provided about USCA citizenship, and civilians will be provided with all USCA required vaccinations. Police, hospitals, and all fire departments will be allowed to remain operational, as long as they don't interfere with "liberating" forces. The HMS Vangaurd will seperate from the Algerian fleet and proceed to dive deeper into the central Mediterranean, observing strict radio silence and will attempt to remain undetected.
I Corps (I sent this to Tom a while ago, when he was mod):
25 Leopαrdalis Medium Tanks
20 T-55 Medium Tanks
100 Fιroun Medium Tanks
300 Avenger AA Missile Platforms
160 Howitzers
30,000 Infantry

@Ultramarine: Truly sorry I wasn't able to get anything in to you in time. However, as a result of that...

Those stealth aircraft should have been detected thanks to my Ionic Turbulence Scanner system-equipped AWACS. I had explained these to Tom once before, and he put them to great use.

Also, Egypt doesn't have nuclear powerplants. We use solar, solar, solar, solar, and solar. And some hydroelectric, wind, and ocean current.

My Macro War Chariots SHOULD STILL HAVE THE RANGE ADVANTAGE. I explained this to Avelella before- imagine if you fired an "Archer." Then, as soon as its maximum range is about to be reached, someone straps a missile engine onto it. The projectile's range is now doubled.

That's pretty much how the Macro War Chariots' projectiles work.

Also, Jake, you DON'T have magnetic thrust vectoring. You couldn't have taken any of the necessary data from within Egypt- they are separate from the Hyperfalcon's data, and since the Hyperfalcon data was stolen all data was securely locked down. No one but an expert Egyptian technician could hack into it, and it would have to be a VERY, VERY good one.

Also... don't y'all think Ultramarine might be a little... uh... BIASED, against me? Maybe? I sure think so.

@ Cliffe.
Magnetic Thrust vectoring works by injecting a ferromagnetic material into the jet engine's combustion chamber. The material is immediately liquefied and mixed in with the thrust, thus magnetizing it. Electromagnets positioned behind the thrust nozzles concentrate the thrust and force it through somewhat small, ceramic-insulated nozzles. The magnets can then rotate and spin to vector the thrust in virtually any direction. Laser cooled fermionic lithium-6 gas is injected in front of the compression chamber of the engine. It was found that when compressed and mixed with the ordinary air, the lithium-6 gas can retain its magnetism even when burning

Ok guys, chill down.

The losing/ not doing as awesome as expected side will always complain about the CM. People complained to me (Nick, Cliffe, etc) when their attacks failed because of enemy oppositon, or they simply failed for other miscelaneous factors that CM looks at.

As for the MTV- I find it highly implausible to begin with, but if it somehow worked (by magical properties, obviously) the plans for them would have been included with the COMPLETE Hyperfalcon plans stolen in Canada. I was the one which made that raid successful, if you would recall. So yes, I believe that John Dawn should have MTV, and hence, the Africans have it since they bought those plans from Dawn.

Well, that wouldn't work because of a couple things I could think of off the top of my head.

1. The iron would vaporize if small quantities were injected, because it would have to be liquid to begin with, and wouldn't magnetize sufficiently.
2. The magnetized iron would stick to anything remotely charged, and may over time clog the outlet vents (the big afterburner).
3. Maintenance would be a nightmare because you'd be cleaning/melting layers of solid iron off the inside of the entire engine after every flight.
4. Cost would be prohibitive because you'd have to replace the iron every time when conventional thrust vectoring would be much less consumptive of strategic materials.

France has recently received the schematics and okay from the PCU to produce an additional 12 F-111s domestically. Granted these airframes will be built from scratch, minute editing will be done as to go ahead and dedicate them for the intended role. In regards to the latter, these aircraft will serve as electronic countermeasure beds for up to two active squadrons apiece. Once said attack squadrons take flight, one of these F-111s will follow en suite as to counter ground-based detection systems, reduce squadron cross-section, etc. We're looking at a minimum two weeks for the first pair to be completed.

Aside from that, one of the other squadrons of F-111s acquired from Australia will be upgraded to perform the same role. The remaining squadron will become squadron munitions support. Pretty much a B-1R, but smaller.

Also, the Finnish F-35P kits have been applied to the recently constructed F-35s. As of right now, these planes will be running practice sorties as to get our boys familiarized with the "new" plane. Live munitions training will have the go-ahead in the Moroccan desert. Please note, Algeria, this is not an aggressive action; rather, the desert just makes a nice target.

On note of exercises in general, domestic forces are taking strict security routines near the Prussian borders. Although this has already been said before, I like to reiterate the fact that we're not taking any chances of being caught off-guard. Finishing up the security notice, mainland ADCC nations have taken the cause to go ahead and complete ASW defense notions around the Commonwealth's European isles [as well as our own overseas territories]. This should relax some of the strain on the Commonwealth's naval power and secure more resources for its war.

Moving to a technological standpoint, France and Italy have invested in a joint IFV program. Although the AIFV is an effective machine boasting a nice armament for our boys, a Mk.II seems to be needed. The Mk.II will likely be a complete re-haul with the only remaining original bit being the slightly modified chassis/bed. This project will be set to include newer electronic defense suits [along with APS, ERA, and SDS], more advanced optics, and pretty much everything else. The final completion date is unknown.

The utility helicopter program is stuck in a rut at the moment with financial issues being the offending factor. However, the government wishes greatly for a follow-through product and will likely grant credit to the manufacturer if it completes the aircraft. More on this later.

In mention of economics, the ADCC continues to encourage alternative fuel programs along with alternative farming programs. We've seen a large boost of interest from the public domain after the first few investors of both sets of programs took the leap, per se. In general, all of this should equate to better civil standings along with a tad more money in the federal budget.

@Ultramarine: Truly sorry I wasn't able to get anything in to you in time. However, as a result of that...

Those stealth aircraft should have been detected thanks to my Ionic Turbulence Scanner system-equipped AWACS. I had explained these to Tom once before, and he put them to great use.

Also, Egypt doesn't have nuclear powerplants. We use solar, solar, solar, solar, and solar. And some hydroelectric, wind, and ocean current.

My Macro War Chariots SHOULD STILL HAVE THE RANGE ADVANTAGE. I explained this to Avelella before- imagine if you fired an "Archer." Then, as soon as its maximum range is about to be reached, someone straps a missile engine onto it. The projectile's range is now doubled.

That's pretty much how the Macro War Chariots' projectiles work.


Well, I'm sorry I didn't see this before.

1. If you're going about detecting stealth aircraft, you're doing it wrong. I know how, trust me. Ask Ham.
2. I'm sorry I don't see your Macro as the omnipotent master of the battlefield. It might have a range advantage, but how well does it fight infantry? Run them over? Good plan (the only plan), because I didn't see any machine guns on there. I am painfully realistic when it comes to war.
3. "Also... don't y'all think Ultramarine might be a little... uh... BIASED, against me? Maybe? I sure think so." -- Not in the slightest sense. Simply a realist.
