After completing military exercises, it has been determined that our military severely lacks any competent reconnaissance capabilities. Our old scout cars have proven to be utterly useless, and we have begun development of a new LRV to fill this gaping hole. Our Longhorns performed very well, and we are placing another order of 1,000 of the vehicles. An air-defense package has begun development for the Longhorn, as well. Our Marine Infantry divisions, however, performed outstandingly during their mock-assaults, and made very good use of their limited resources. While versatile, it has been determined that for the most part that the old OD uniforms must be phased out (for the most part). A new form of tiger-stripe camouflage is being developed based on the US ABU uniform, and will come in 3 models:
-Urban
-Woodland
-Desert
Specialty tactical gear is also being developed with this new camouflage. Our general infantry was still not as mobile as anticipated, and it has been determined that our forces must be much more mobile and self contained as possible, so a large order of GPMRVs has been placed to fulfill this requirement. Airplane-based infantry deployment was a complete disaster, as we simply did not have enough capable aircraft to sustain a full assault, and plans to covert all airborne divisions into air-cavalry are being made. A single UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter has been purchased from the Byzantine Empire, and development of the UH-71 (an improved version of the UH-60, with better countermeasure systems and a more efficient engine) is being started. After all of these expenses, we have approximately $500,000,000 worth of bonus spending left. We are also considering disbanding our light armored units and dispersing their equipment into other infantry divisions. A dedicated Marine Corps has been formed, and a well guarded warehouse has been built to stockpile equipment that is not in use.

Due t the increasing interest and danger level of the station, The Baltic Union has ordered an even higher protection level for the nation of Denmark.

At this time, we have seized the remainder of Denmark's Naval assets and are now using those, in conjunction with our own units, to patrol the waters surrounding Denmark. This is a measure for the collective safety of both of our countries.

We have also begun conducting air force operations over Denmark, to work in conjunction with both the Danish air force and the UFS Air Force over Southern Sweden, to form a rather protective "bubble" over this important country, preventing all but cleared civilian flights in and out.

Again, to stress the protectiveness of these measures, and the fact that we have the full compliance of the Danish government in these measures.

The Western Confederation received a disturbing radio message today from our contact in Denmark. The transmission was garbled, and unencoded for haste. "Seizure of navy by force...fighters ranging our airspace unimpeded. Mutinied crews imprisoned *static* possible invasion. Resistance *static* might cause civilian casu*static*...The strong have preyed *static* the weak...Must find artifact *static*-115 only hope now..."

A profound silence fell over the High Command when the transcript was read before them. The weight of the news took a moment to sink in. It filled each man with a new resolve to help in any way possible. The message was passed on to the Pacific fleet, and departure followed immediately the arrival of the science vessel at Midway. The destination is only a few hours away.

After being given the option to return to Denmark or receive sanctuary in the WC, the Danish crews elected to a man to stay, fearing European reprisal upon return. They have been given back command of their ships until they decide to return or the situation dissolves.

The Essx carriers arrived in Corpus Christi this morning, they have been rechristened the WCS Houston and Great Falls, refit should not take long. After the vote in Montana passed, the Montana National Guard came under WC command. Comprised of veterans from the Second Canadian Border War just two years ago, they have a great array of improvised weapons that the WC High Command will take a look at standardizing and deploying.

Pilots of the F-16Fs have begun carrier landing drills on the WCS Denver, coming along pretty well so far.

In response to what will likely come to an armed intervention in Denmark involving Western nations, the Federation will be undergoing its own naval drills in which will ultimately become a maritime barring of foreign naval vessels around Danish waters. Protests will not stop this resolution seeing as though the Russian Federation is doing what it thinks best for the European Community and especially our Baltic and Nordic neighbors.

During a joint exercise of Baltic and Danish troops, a radio message was intercepted going o a long-distance outbound frequency. This message was traced by highly rained technicians in both countries, and found to be headed for a reception point in the WC. We also located it's origination point, an unsettled area away from any Danish centers of population. Thinking nothing of it, the troops continued their exercise.

Later, when the WC released the message received from the supposed "Danish Government" the government in question denied that it ever sent anything of the sort, especially so since the items claimed by the message have been proven false, in fact, the Baltic Forces ow on patrol have received nothing but cooperation from the Danish.

The isolated place where the message sent earlier was traced was then raided, in an attempt by the Danish government to learn who had been faking signals that were supposadley from the Danish government.

The perpetrators have been revealed now to be a pro-America minority group of Danish origin, who had been enacting deals, posing as the Danish government, with the WC for quite some time now. Those men are now in Danish custody, on charges of Treason.

Investigators into this strange turn of events are unaware whether the WC government knew of this group's activities, or whether the group fooled the WC into thinking that they really were the Danish government.

The Commonwealth is very much against all expansion into Europe done by any American powers. We would like to mention that you guys promised that you would not interfere with Europe; as long as Europe doesn't interfere with America. We have all left the American mainland, so why must you remain and interfere with Europe. This is very hypocritical and we now demand that America stops interfering with Europe, before they spark an international affair. If any US forces try to enter into The Baltic Sea or The North Sea to "help" Denmark. They will be stopped whiling passing Britain, and will be asked to turn around. If they shows signs of aggressiveness or do not comply, they will be fired upon. We hope that we do not need to take the lives of others, but we will not hesitate to do so, because their incursion is a threat to not only the people of Denmark, but also any European in the region.

I would like to clarify that my fleet and aircraft in/near Sweden are not trying to contain Denmark, and despite previously insinuated reports by my allies, my aircraft are NOT limiting Danish airspace or shipping. However, my aircraft and the fleet will be wary of any "science vessels" approaching the area.

After a mere month in power, the temporary Prime Minister of the UFS has been replaced by general elections. Turnout in Sweden and Finland was quite good, and the Norwegans were eager to vote for a Prime Minister that represents Norway more than the other candidates. The new prime minister (which has taken office immediately) has campaigned under the promise to make sure that the UFS's main stregnth is through diplomatic means, rather than military. As a result of this, a review of the new armed forces has been brought into effect, and already the sentiment is to downsize the current military to roughy 2/3s of the current combined forces of the countries. Military funding has been sharply lowered taking effect immediately, and the budget has made no clear provisions for two of the planned four Allegiance class GMDs. Despite just announced plans to modernize the air force, it seems likely that the F18s will be retired due to their age (these aircraft will be avaiable to the highest bidder, the WC INCLUDED).

I can (believe it or not) see your angle here, but now that it is officially a matter between Jake H and I you really should't butt in. And to be honest, the only reason that they are still there is because I'm taking a tough stance on foreign policy (ie. not backing down to foreign pressure). I respectfully ask you to drop whatever negative feelings you have towards my relations with America, and I will care even less about the situation in Denmark. In fact, I stop my exercises and searches of your vessels going into Denmark if you stop applying pressure to sever my relations with America.

The Western Confederation has intelligence reports of ranking military officers being hauled off to prison. They are believed to be the originators of the distress call.

What started as a goodwill mission in the Pacific, some sort of routine salvage operation, has turned into a full-blown race to save Denmark from foreign invasion. After all, the WCHC reasoned, it was our visit that sparked the unfortunate event. Now, their only clue as to what they are looking for at the given coordinates is "Dash115" which appears to be some sort of "Artifact." Its origin is unknown, but how could the Danes know of an artifact that could save their nation?

Further adding to the credulity of the report, is Captain Christensen of the Royal Danish Navy. He headed the shipment of the two older vessels that were sold to the Confederation. He does not doubt the validity of the reports, but did not reveal the identity of "Dash115" when questioned earlier. It is all the Americans can do to stop him from taking to sea with his ships and taking on Europe.

No, you lied and said they were leaving. So I stood down my fleet, and turned around because I believed you were complying. By the time I found out you weren't, New Jersey belonged to my ally, and there was nothing I could do about it.

I did not lie, I just manipulated the situation like you did too. I did indeed have them leave, but once Jake H invaded, I asked permission to send them back there for him, and it was accepted. So yeah. They left, but came back immediately. And you don't have any fleet in the Atlantic.

As for the pressure, most likely, but to be honest I'm already content with what I have achieved there, so they might just go home soon anyway.

Further adding to the credulity of the report, is Captain Christensen of the Royal Danish Navy. He headed the shipment of the two older vessels that were sold to the Confederation. He does not doubt the validity of the reports, but did not reveal the identity of "Dash115" when questioned earlier. It is all the Americans can do to stop him from taking to sea with his ships and taking on Europe.

The Baltic Union would like to point out that the group transmitting phony distress calls was comprised of angered civilians, with no affiliation with the Danish military.

We also would like to stress that we have full Danish cooperation on the issue of their security, and that this captain Christensen has no reason to suspect us of anything against his country, as we have done nothing but help his country.

If it is his wish, Denmark would gladly welcome him back with open arms, and we may even consider sending a few members of the Danish Navy, his own brothers-in-arms, over to convince him, from a perspective not unlike his own, that we are helping the country, and the information that he has heard, and subsequently made him believe that there was actually a threat to his country, is false, as the group of civilian radio operators who had attempted to maintain contact with American powers, are in no way affiliated with the Danish militarily or government structure. Both structures fully support our actions.

What I take issue from is that you are insinuating that I am up to no good in Denmark, whereas I am really up to nothing but good there.

The fact that these Danish officers feel that they need to stay away from the region also perplexes me, as these men face no reprisals of any sort from a nation (me) who fully supports and cooperates with their own government.

That is why we are sending an extra 530 men, along with armor directly to the city instead of fiddling around they will move straight in and begin the occupation. We will start an anti-drug campaign there and will spread propaganda all over the city. We will also have soldiers take part in community service jobs and 25 soldiers will set up a medical clinic in a less fortunate area.

And we were such good friends in the last group...

I have had enough of this.

Denmark has in no way expressed discontent at the Baltic Union's actions. We have the full support of the Danish Government, and the Danish military, and that is that.

Whatever grounds you have to believe that people in the Danish military or otherwise are unfounded, and the fact that you even have a secret frequency for conduct with Denmark even allays itself to more suspicion, as Denmark is obviously not related to your country beyond the sale of two ships. Your intelligence gathering techniques have also been called into question, as you so-called link to Denmark, actually turned out to be a group who were not interested in their country at all, but rather interested in personal gain. These men used your nation as a seaway to try to gain power and importance, and were foiled when their location was discovered by both Baltic and Danish troops working n conjunction with each other.

Whatever dash115 is, it looks to have been almost certainly leaked, as any report of "invasion" or any such threat would not have come from the official military of Denmark. If such a report was received, then it obviously was received from a third-party source.

Meanwhile, our forces in and around Denmark continue to operate with the full cooperation of the Danish.


The fact that we were friends in the last group hardly comes into play. The mere fact that you have inexplicable connections with a country that had previously been and still is under our influence is strange enough. Moreover the fact that you believe your statements, made from halfway around the world and based on nothing but a supposed "secret frequency", actually have any bearing at all. The messages you have received, in which such falsities as an invasion were written, certainly did not originate from the Danish military, as you speculate. The messages in question were in fact sent from a third party group, which you probably did not know about in the first place.

If you would like our assistance in figuring out why this group attempted to use your country for their own personal gain (or how they managed to hack into your "secret frequency"), then you may have our assistance, as this whole incident is clearly a misconception brought on by the selfish acts of a few individuals, and threatens to throw international relations into turmoil over nothing more than a group attempting to seize power. I can tell you right now, that your conclusions are unfounded, and Denmark is, in fact, fully compliant with our actions.

It appears we'll need to get a combat mod just to see how this will turn out.

You've imposed your military upon the Danes, pure and simple by your own admission. Something about "Seizing Danish naval assets?" Sounds rather aggressive. And that's how the good captain sees it, his crew, and the rest of the Danes. This "All of a sudden, the Danes are just fine with us taking away their navy and impugning their sovereignty" is absurd and akin to my overreaction, at least that was satire.

I'd like to see how it got leaked, because it's only been established for two days.

The allegation that I actually "seized the Danish Navy is false.

All Danish ships are right now, and have been for the time previously, under the control of their Danish officers.

The Danish Military has been acting in conjunction with me for this whole process, I have not imposed anything over them.

I can tell you right now, that the Danish, allies with the Baltic Union ever since Estonia was brought under the protective flanks of Germany, forming the Union, are merely accepting a further measure of protection that has been placed on that country by mine for a while.

It is also unclear whether the codes were leaked, hacked, or simply stolen, but what is clear right now is that the "distress call" you received was in no way from the Danish military.

I resent the allegation that I am falsifying information, as I am many things, but a liar I am not. I can tell you in full truth that yes, my friends the Danes support my country's protective measures. Yes, all of the Danish Navy remains under their control, only supervised by us, and that the transmissions you received do not reflect the opinion of the men and women of the Danish government or military.


I do hope you can see the error in the conclusions you have drafted, as I am an honest man, and I can say, with all honesty, that your country has had the wool pulled over its eyes by a group of individuals which are now being questioned by their own countrymen.

Waking to a crisis situation, the new Prime Minister has informed the other three parties involved that a diplomatic solution would work best for all parties. I propose that military pressure on Denmark from both parties is dropped immediately, and that the Danish Armed Forces are locked (ie. no buying their stuff, no taking it). This should at least be in effect for a month, allowing the situation to calm down a bit.

In unrelated news, the Type-4s ordered by the Baltic Union have now been cleared for active service, and all of them have left Finnish ports with the full compliment of Baltic Union sailors. Good luck, and good hunting.

You said, and I quote: "Seizing the remainder of Denmark's naval assets." So you did say it.

I believe it is time for me to assert my credentials for my authority when it comes to what the Danes are REALLY doing, and how 'uncool' it is for you to keep rewriting what I say.
1. I established diplomatic relations before you did.
2. From the word go, the admins have rejected your 'alternatives' to my accounts. When you kept beating the drum about how the Danes were 'Oh, so upset' about selling me the ships, your appeal to the admins for overturning it were overruled, and they upheld my account. But you still keep going.
3. You seize 1/3 of their armed forces, and you just say "It's for their own good." Yet you think me sending 50 envoys is a travesty.

Apparently, I have to say this 1,000 times before everyone gets it: "I'm not trying to annex Denmark." I have no fleets (or even boats) in the Atlantic, so I continue to laugh at your threats of "Uber awesome destruction" should I get too close.

Furthermore, the 'goodwill mission' I'm performing in the Pacific was given to me by the Danes while I was there, from their mouths directly (let's see you rewrite that one). It's unfortunate that you seem to think you have to go to all this trouble over something that I'll be done with in less than a week, if you'd just left it be. Then, you could do whatever you jolly well please with them, and I would cease to care at that point.

But your rewriting is becoming extremely tiring, and rather irritating. I will be done in a week or less with my story, so I would appreciate a "Hands-off" from you for the duration. Thank you in advance.

I'm glad we can just send facts back and forth now. Let me explain he situation from my point of view.

1. I have had diplomatic relations with Denmark ever since the founding of my country, when Germany opened up strong relations to the small countries of the Baltic region, including Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Denmark. The first three subsequently joined, the latter remained a friend and ally because it existed sufficiently enough on its own.

2. I apologize if my wording in a previous post led you to believe that I actually forcibly seized the Danish Navy. This is not the case. I have not used force against the Danes at all.

3. The issue of your two ships is in the past, that's not what my protective measures of Denmark are about.

4. I have no quarrel with your dealings in the Pacific. The only thing I have "rewritten" is stated that the "distress call" you received came from a small group of fanatical individuals. Your other transmissions, those concerning coordinates, were in fact perfectly legitimate.


I would like to state all of my intentions right now, for the world to see. My plan was to place Denmark under active protection until the incidents involving it were no longer an issue, and Denmark could then exist safely without any further scrutiny. The fact that in doing so, I only escalated the incident was an unforeseen circumstance. At that time when Denmark was no longer a global issue, I would have returned the nation to its previous life of obscurity, as it was before this whole conflict bubbled up.

I never have seized Danish ships, as you say by stating that: "You seize 1/3 of their armed forces", I simply have not done this. While the word "seized" used previously, may have made you think that, I am here to tell you that I have not done so, and regret the fact that you believe I have.

I also want to stress that the Danish military i acting alongside our ships and aircraft (on patrol), entirely by their own choice. We have not forced them.


So that's it, I am not planning to annex Denmark, nor am I trying to take anything away from them. The entire object of this operation was to secure the sanctity of Denmark from the rest of the international community, but in doing so I appear to have only further risked that.

To summarize: The Danes are my friends, the are my allies, I am merely protecting them, and am not harming them in any way. The fact that you guys don't seem to understand this bothers me, and I am trying to convene that to you all.

Any questions?

On the Chechen front, allied forces have managed to push past Achkoy-Martan with the city mostly secured and being re-organized for supply distribution that will be needed later in the campaign. Anyhow, a southern detachment of medium armour and accompanying mechanized infantry has broken off to head into Urus-Martan. Heavy bombardment from the air will hit the city beforehand as to soften up a majority of whatever expected resistance may be found. If this attack is successful, along with the one presently occurring in Bomut, the Federation should have a majority of the populace centers west of the Irgun under our occupation; therefore, reducing a majority of the suspected supply routes from Georgia to Grozny.

Mid-state, the combative route chosen against the city of Nadterechnaya has been scrapped in favor of surrounding and besieging the area rather than full confrontation. Thus, the main force has splintered into a northern and southern force that will go ahead and consume the surrounding miles of territory. The northern force will later splinter once more after it crosses the Terek as to capture the city of Kalinovskaya in a joint-strike with the forces about Kamyshev.

Speaking of Kamyshev, the city was labeled "secured; organizing" after a 72-hour, non-stop munitions bombardment destroyed target after target in severe continuation. Aside from that, a east and west splinter is presently being established. The eastern force will work in conjunction with paratroopers to capture the far-off area of Kargalinskaya. This attack will likely take some weeks to fully be appreciated, but it will surely help in the upcoming mass-charge into Dagestan.

Moving along to Russo-Georgian relations, the latter nation has finally felt the pressure of our forces pressing into the two disputed sovereign states held within its borders. Presently, they have been fixed to the negotiation table, but with no resolution yet to be seen. Of course our main dispute is the recent air strike believed to originate from Georgia. More information at a later date.

Also, in cooperation with our Nordic allies, the Federation has begun the research of a new ATGM capable of defeating most contemporary APS units. The Russian-produced munitions will be able to be fired from smoothbore cannons. Anyhow, the basic principal is simply to strike from a ninety-degree attack angle as to tackle the limitations of fielded protection systems.

This new uniform will be complimented by a wide arrange of new modular gear and equipment, namely the promising BattleCom Integrated Communication System, which provides real-time GPS tracking and communication from the fire team to division level, giving unit commanders a much better grasp of what is actually going on. This system, along with many others, make use of the modularity of the new rigging and are extremely durable, however quite pricey.

In the PCU, things go great.

After a quick deliberation with the WC, the bolstering of the Air Guard has been halted, with the units already readied being lessened by the day, being sent to actual conflicts rather than an imaginary one.

In Alberta, another fourth of Red Deer was taken after an armored convoy moved into the city from the Northwest. MAH-1s provided CAS for the advancing soldiers, eliminating most of the Rebel fortifications before the PCU even entered eyesight.

Edmonton has been selected as the next target by the Pacifican Army, skipping over many of the smaller towns, saving them for the White Ops.

Back in Portland, a milestone has been reached. 100 HAT-1 Mk.IIs have been produced. They boast armor that is two times as strong, using a real mixture of materials, with special instruments to protect from EMP-using powers. With a cannon that could stop an Abrams dead in its tracks with only one shot, it is the best of the best.

As usual, only China and the Pacific Union have been cleared to produce/sell these products.

Any questions?

Yeah, how about you back off and quit rewriting my stories, or doing anything to (or pretending to speak on behalf of) Denmark for the next 7 days, ok?

I'll be happy, you'll be happy. I'll be done, and you can do whatever your heart desires, eh?

If I say or do anything completely outrageous (that doesn't fix itself in "Tomorrow's Episode"), I request personally that the admins take action against me.

In the PCU, things go great.

After a quick deliberation with the WC, the bolstering of the Air Guard has been halted, with the units already readied being lessened by the day, being sent to actual conflicts rather than an imaginary one.

While the freighters remained at Midway Island to unload supplies and begin repairs on the airfields, the science vessel and the cutters finally arrived at the coordinates sent by the Danes. Four diving teams were sent down in alternating shifts to look across the ocean floor while high-definition sonar scanned the area in detail. At about 2 pm, team two was directed toward an object embedded in a sharp rise of the ocean floor. It was a Danish Royal Air Force transport, or at least what was left of it. An examination of the inside of the cargo bay revealed a single, small metal box secured in the center. On its side, in big block letters read: ZED-115. It had to be the artifact. Rushing this find to the surface in haste, the diver suffered from the bends, but is recovering in the medical bay. A C-130 has been dispatched to Midway to pick up the artifact and return it to the WC within the day.

In other news, 'Lady Lex' has received her new radar array and her newest SAM compliment. Her deck is about 33% done, and the engine is about 40% along. This work is helping the Texas economy immensely with all the ship-building. Several civilian companies have descended upon the area to build more houses for the hundreds coming to Corpus Christi and Houston for work; thus further providing jobs. Construction has begun on a new type of compact carrier fighter, since the F-16F has been deemed insufficient for long-term service; though it will suffice as a stop-gap for the time being. Orders for this new craft exceed 200.

Hey everyone, I DIDN'T die... I hate to admit it, but my schedule's been a little packed, so I've been unable to be consistantly active.

Anyway, Alaska has finalized plans to join the USNA.

The EF-1 Blackfish (ECM variant) has entered service. It uses highly secret technology (Ultramarine and Tom N would already know what this technology would be) to detect and scramble the seekers on incoming missiles, and in close-in scenarios it can be used against air and ground based radar systems to great effect.

Expansion of the military posts in Sitka, Homer, and Unalaska have been completed. Due to increasing amounts of drug traffic and terrorist activity, the Coast Guard has been issued 6 A-10 Thunderbolt IIs. Two are to be stationed in each of the above mentioned ports.

The Western Confederation is pleased to welcome the Atlantic Union and Alaska as members of the United States of Northern America, or USNA. We will discuss things further in the future, but for now we are glad to have established the ground works of what promises to be something great.

Repairs on the Midway airfield continued today, breaking only briefly to allow the C-130 of "Savior Flight" to land, retrieve the artifact, and head home. The redemption of Denmark is that much closer. The WCHC has interviewed Cpt. Christensen about the contents of the box, which was double-locked and presumed tamper-proof. He refused to reveal any more than he already had.

The expected attack on the Baja garrison came today, when a 800 member mix of gangs, hired gunmen, and bribed police/military attacked using well-trained infantry tactics. The F-16s and AC-130 performed with flawless coordination to stem the attack. Nevertheless, one marine dug-out was overrun in the initial engagement. After about 30 minutes of pitched combat, the attack was halted under relentless pounding by tanks (whose TUSK armor proved virtually impenetrable to the anti-tank weapons used), bombs, grenades, and the rapid-fire 150mm small guns on the AC-130. As they began to retreat, the CAS worked their vehicles over, causing them to abandon them and flee on foot into the desert. One platoon of marines and one Scorpion took to chasing them, shooting anyone they came across and bayoneting the survivors. It is a strategic victory for the WC. We suffered 10 killed and 35 wounded, with one damaged Scorpion; for an estimated 350 casualties on the enemy side.

The redemption of Denmark

May I ask what that means?

And I must say, that I am not trying to rewrite your stories. Unless you count my statements on the "distress call", but that was it.

And, if I need to remind you, Denmark is still open to any unarmed transport, a fact that I wish to convey to you, in case you wanted to bring your artifact in.

I hope you do realize that I am not actually invading, but my forces are only acting as a shield of sorts around Denmark, I'm not actually within Danish borders.

In the CDC, we are lifting the export tarrif on oil, however we will be heavily taxing imported oil. Desalinization plants are nearly operational, however another week is needed to complete installation of electronics,equipment, etc.
-Development of the UH-71 is going nicely, however a new requirement to enlarge the fuel storage will lengthen the development time.
-The M908A3 Air Defense Module is still going nowhere, and will be scrapped if no progress is made within another 2 days.
-Development of the Landing Craft- Inflatable M2405 has begun, it and will hopefully provide Marine Infantry with a boost to their assault capabilities.
-Development of the Wolverine M1 IFV is going very smoothly, and we are expecting prototypes by the end of the month. This will surely boost our reconaissance capabilities.
-Prototypes of MCU equipment and uniforms have been distributed to troops of the I Marine Infantry Division, and after several small scale field exercises, they have proven to be a huge success. The BattleCom Integrated Communications system also proved to be an invaluable asset. We are however, still tweeking it a bit to get the most out of the technology, however we already see great promise.

The Marine Task Force that is currently read for deployment were loaded onto the Tarawa, Belleau Wood, and Peleliu for the trip to the awaiting HGS John Hood, where the first amphibious assault in the PCU will go down.

The LHAs are currently halfway to the Hood, where they will meet up with the HGS Makin Island and, of course, the Hood. From there they will move due southeast to the target location.

In Red Deer, another fourth has been taken, with the Resistance now in full-scale retreat to Edmonton. Two MAH-1s patrolled the main road to Edmonton from Red Deer and were awaiting clearance to open fire on any heavily armed troops when they began running low on fuel, and headed back to a FOB.

In Portland, a new helicopter that will specialize in troop deployment, mine sweeping, combat search and rescue, and close air support. Initial designs have not been drawn up, but basic ideas are being laid out.

After the initial shock at a "supertank" were received by the Governor, he claimed that this was just an overly-exaggerated report by an over-zealous engineer.

The "real" HAT-1 however is stronger than the Abrams, with a 150mm cannon, and is obviously larger by a few feet. The engines are larger, duh, but we're working on alternative fuel sources (oils from the greasy hair of teenagers?) for them.

In The Commonwealth...
Designing of the carrier has been completed, and the diagrams and blueprints have been sent to the Royal Navy. Parliament will also need to improve the predicted cost for the build. If all goes well we plan on eventually building 2 ships of that class of carrier. In more scientific note, a breakthrough has been made by a group of Oxford scientists. It involves the advancement of solar energy cells. The government has decided to subsidise the project and will asist the scientists by sending some of Britain's best energy scientists to help. Hopefully once the project has been completed, a new more durable, cheaper, and more efficient pannel combined with this new cell will make solar energy more efficient and cheaper. We will also be investing 50 million pounds on the research of the M1 Fuel Cell, and we will also send energy scientists to help the Brazilian ones. Finally we will be sending three Astute-Class Submarines into the Atlantic, with their mission being classified.

Another move from the new Prime Minister.

His military plans involve no expansion of the military, but rather, replacing ALL old equipment with modern designs. While this is expensive, it is far more efficient than having a bloated military in terms of personel just to man outdated equipment. On that matter, the Navy is being granted expansion.

After a month of deliberations, it has been determined that Finland will stop its practices of conscription and we will transition to a full-time, professional army.

With permission from the Icelandic government, a large interdiction exercise has been planned. The goal is to improve our ability to engage hostile targets travelling over the North Atlantic heading to attack the UFS. In addition, a wing of JAS-35 Gripens have been transferred there in order to practice fleet interception duties for a similar purpose. No live ammunition will be used.

The A2 was designed as a protector vehicle for other landing craft, and is equipped with a remotely operated 5.56mm quad barrel minigun. This breakthrough in AA Technology will most likely be used in the M908A3 Air Defense Module, of which plans to scrap have been cancelled. 400 standard LCI M3s and 150 LCI M3A2s have been ordered.

Treachery! The artifact ZED-115 has been stolen! Captain Christensen's marines knocked out the WC guards on duty and took the box, fleeing to their ships and setting sail within minutes. So completely caught off guard by this incident, it was an hour before anyone knew of the matter. Fifteen minutes later, the WCS Brigand was alerted, having been on shake-down in the Gulf since its launch and being the only ship out, gave chase. She was an hour and a half behind, but her engines were more powerful; she would catch them. Commanders are still wondering why the Danes turned so quickly. The two ships rounded Florida and took a northerly course at flank speed, hotly pursued by the Brigand.

Carrier trials of the new superiority fighter have been promising. One unfortunate accident that claimed a pilot's life was ruled a mechanical failure and not related to the carrier landing. A flight of 5 B-1Bs and 8 more F-16Fs flew to San Jose, Baja today; marking the beginning of that garrison's evolution to an operating base. The Cartels won't be back for some time, if at all since their disastrous defeat yesterday having suffered over 30% casualties.

The Western Confederation realized that it only had 50 Navy Seals left in its ranks. An order was passed to make these men the drillers of a new generation of Seals. Their numbers will be over 1,000 when the program reaches maximum.

In Alberta, Red Deer has been fully taken and secured. As of now, the PCU soldiers are setting up concrete barricades to the North and East of Red Deer as we expect a Rebel counter-attack.

Three MAF-1 Goshawks bombed the roads leading into Edmonton every way but from Red Deer. The PCU Assault will begin shortly.


In the Pacific, the PCU Strike Fleet has grouped up and begun sailing towards the target location. They should arrive late tomorrow night, with the first combat reports being posted Sunday morning. Hopefully.

Three diplomats, escorted by a platoon of PCU Marines, landed on the Big Island of Hawaii today in a C-2 Greyhound and began deliberating with Governor Morrison, the former Governor of Hawaii before the US splintered. Morrison did not allow us to explain our presence, only accepting a short brief talk with the Senior Diplomat before rushing us off the island. An intervention may be necessary.


In Portland, the first AAA Tower has been completed. The 20 foot tall building holds a pair of heavy Anti-Air units that will shoot down enemy bombers/fighters should we be attacked. Underneath is a bunker that houses civilians. The released number is 10,000 but that may be another misnomer from overly excited reporters.

The new cargo helicopter is to enter production mid-way through January, if not earlier.

Alaskan Airforce has completed a joint training effort with Texas, giving both airforces considerable experience with the new F-1 Blackfish fighter. Pilots experienced engagements in real-life scenarios, including extensive combat manevering through the Brooks Range and across the Minto flats. The harsh Alaskan winter weather was an additional challenge to the participating pilots and ground crew, but no aircraft were lost, and a great deal of additional navigation skill was gained. Blackfish pilots were also extensively trained in air-to-ground roles, getting familiar with the Blackfish's high-tech systems, and the targeting skills required to accurately destroy ground targets at insanely high speeds.

Then you can't have it. Rule is that you can either upgrade existing things, or to introduce a new weapon (like your submarine) you actually need to make it, or at least announce its construction, and say that its done when you actually finish it.

And the Indonesian Navy has never operated destroyers, so having 6 is completely impossible. Also, I have not observed you making these either, so this is quite impossible.

Also, recently there have been a slew of members magically stating that "a new battleship/destroyer/aircraft carrier" is completed, without any prior mention to this. If the MOC was not made before you joined/ when this group was made, you will need to go through the standard development and build time.

You may have them in your arsenal, but using nuclear arms is strictly forbidden.

In other news, the Russian Federation will be eyeballing the Cuban fleet heading towards the Arctic quite closely. Once our satellites get a fix on the vessels, we'll be trailing them henceforth, or at least until they turn home, for the sake of national security. We find it rather astounding the Cubans have vessels fitted for the hostile waters, but nothing will be left to chance.

Several oil refineries have just opened on Hispaniola, and unemployment on the island is now at a 60 year low. Also, talks with the former US Virgin Isles have begun about incorporating them into the CDC, and with negotiations in the Bahamas showing very promising outcomes, many investors have begun investing in these prospective markets.
Also, we are willing to send the Russian Federation a brief detailing the mission of the I Antisurface Fleet, on the terms that they are kept strictly confidential.

The Battlegroup, codenamed "Toucan" has moved out from Midway. Cost will be worked out via FM. The other group has launched 4 landingcraft full of Marines and Armor to find "Blue Atoll" deserted. It was later found out that it was shut down 22 years ago. The Marines combed the island and found no resistance. "Blue Atoll" will be open for aircraft once the Marines make small repairs on the runway. It's name will be declassified once the atoll is deemed operational.

The Wolverine project is going nicely. The MCU is still undergoing trials by the Marines, and they seem to have their hands full with such an influx of new equipment.

No, no, no- UKS and the Indo-Union. The Australia Republic will try to remain neutral in the conflict, but I am rethinking that since the Indo-Union is a large ally of me. So I am still deciding whether to get involved in this very likely war.

Anyway, for an update on Vanuatu, Port Vila has been secured, and enemy terrorists have been exterminated from the capital city. The remnants of the enemy force have retreated to the rugged jungle of the island. We ceased the sending of troops to Vanuatu, and keeping the ones in Vanuatu the only ones in Vanuatu. Like I have said above, I am still deciding whether or not to keep a number of troops in reserve in case the Indo-Korean War breaks out. And yes, I just made up a name for the possible conflict.

In little talk about what you have to do to be able to have certain naval ships, our fleets are being armed with the re-named Melbourne-Class Carriers, (which I have a Moc as), the new Auckland-Class Battleships, (which I have made and will add soon-I know I cant have it until I have added it), and we are beginning construction on a new submarine.

The Navy began their bombardment and have knocked out nearly all the shore emplacements, it is unknown how Samoa got any of this equipment, they probably raided the American Samoa when the US collapsed. Back to the report, the 1st and 2nd Jungle Infantry Batallions came up onto shore to face a few undestroyed bunkers with .50s in them. After taking the bunkers out and securing the beach Armor began it's way to shore. A small convoy of Armor and troops is making it's way inland. The Helexes flew back to the Carrier and after refueling from their bombing runs they made their way to "Blue Atoll", which is fully secure.

Today in the Western Confederation:

The Danish crews continue on their northerly course, turning northwest late in the afternoon, all the while hotly pursued by the Brigand. The Brigand closed within half a mile at one point, but the Danes turned into each other, and bracketed the ship with four rounds, missing intentionally, before continuing on. The message was clear: “Back off, or else.” Rear Admiral Halls ordered the Brigand to drop back and shadow the two at maximum range. Extrapolations of their course land them somewhere in Greenland or Iceland.

The refit of the three carriers is ongoing. About half the extension of the WCS Lexington is finished. The other two have received their radar suites and now await aircraft.

The F-29, as it has been called, has entered full-scale production after the prototype completed trials last week. http://www.flickr.com/photos/46934040@N05/4839176829/
It is the first 'high-wing' fighter to serve in the navy for a few decades. Small and fast, it will replace the F-18 once sufficient numbers are produced. It has excellent handling characteristics, and is considered a throw-back to the A-4.

Today, in the Western Confederation:

The Danish vessels once again turned slightly to the west; the latest extrapolation definitely puts them on the eastern part of Greenland. A message was sent to the Royal Danish Navy headquarters demanding an explanation, as well as confirmation of earlier reports received from that country. The Danes were shocked at these developments, insisting that to their knowledge, no such messages were sent by anyone in the government. The names of the officers, particularly naval officers, who were in contact with the WC envoys, have been taken down and a full-scale investigation is being launched by the Danish Secret Service. Things are starting to become clear to the Western Confederation. The international community is advised that there are rogue ships abroad with malicious intent. If they make port, they are to be immediately detained and held for questioning. A Danish fleet is being marshaled to take on the rogues.

Elsewhere, construction continues in both the Baja and on Midway. The airstrip on Midway is over 75% refinished, and garrisoning the island will begin just after that.

The Baja has taken delivery of two F-89s, they will be undergoing long-range as well as combat simulations in different climates. That's why we've also sent two to Minnesota...
The onboard AESA radar is also undergoing trails, as it is experimental. Three have been sent to Corpus Christi for naval landing trials on the WCS Denver. The first three F-29s have taken wing in South Dakota. They also will fly down to Corpus Christi for trials on the Denver.

The Forrestal-class (formerly and mistakenly called 'Essx-class') carriers WCS Houston and Great Falls have been further upgraded by four Phalanx guns this morning. Installation will be complete by the end of today. 20 UH-10 Bullmoose have flown down and will be stationed aboard the two. The engines were primed and tested successfully; powered voyages will begin Wednesday. Personnel are running short. We have enough for the Houston and Great Falls, but that's about it. Rigorous training will begin shortly for a new generation of sea-men.

6 of those-boats-that-are-like-destroyers-but-aren't are stationed close the Philippine shore on the south side. Another 3 companies arrive in the Philippines as the tension builds. The civilians are advised to evacuate from the cities if fighting breaks out.

No word yet from the UKS if they're going to declare war on us, though I doubt they will simply give up and find another island.

I hope you plan on pulling out eventually, the Filipino won't take kindly to be 'protected' then taken over by the same country.

Several new developments come out of Denmark, from both today and yesterday!

Yesterday: Due to global events, the Baltic Union shifted its viewpoint on the event occurring concerning Denmark. We continued to question the group of citizens who are implicated in the fake "distress message", and found, to our surprise, that they sent out a fake message because they were hired to do so, in order to keep authorities off the trail of their employers. After further questioning it was revealed that their employers where several officers in the Danish Navy, including Captain Christensen. Cooperation began with the Danish Secret Service to ascertain the identity of those officers still in Denmark.

Now today, an event shocked our own Navy, and added another dimension to this rapidly-evolving global crisis. Because of what has been happening, it appears that both the BU and the WC have been played as fools.

today: An Absalon Class Frigate, the flagship of the group of Danish Navy vessels conducting joint patrols with Baltic Navy vessels, used her main gun to fire upon the Baltic Union Cruiser, B.N.S. Bavaria. Due to a quick turn around, the cruiser only sustained damage to her empty helicopter flight deck. The Cruiser retreated to a point out of range, and then radioed fr instructions. She was told to it tight, while a scheme was devised to ascertain what was happening on the Danish Frigate. A Type-212 Submarine launched a squad of Baltic Navy Penguins (the equivalent of the U.S.'s Navy Seals) on board underwater scooters, and approached the Danish vessel covertly. They reached the deck, and found almost no crewmen out and about, finding this odd, they approached the bridge and fire-control station. What was found was clearly the result of a mutiny by lower grade officers. In the bridge, the admiral who had commanded the Danish forces in the joint patrol exercises was found dead of three bullets to the head. A captain, with nothing but his service revolver, was apprehended. After the junior officers were detained, the rest of the crew was found below decks, sealed in with every door leading up locked from the outside. After they saw their beloved Admiral, dead of a junior officer mutiny hey were outraged. After the situation was radioed to Danish Naval command, the Danish naval elements were ordered back to base, to undergo a thorough investigation of crewmen who might have been part of this conspiracy.

The UFS is disgusted by the apparent instability of the Danish government and people. We are going to issue an ultimatum to either clean up their act or the UFS will cease trade, negotiations, and other ties with them.
