After analyzing the North American situation, the CSS has decided to send a readiness fleet into the Gulf of Mexico. If war breaks out the Southeastern Confederation will have to side with our friends in the Western Confederation.

@ Jake
WT(F) no they haven't. My troops are still there. There must have been some sort of misunderstanding.

If the Admins decide you really are allowed to suddenly have the Philippines, I'd suggest you GTF0 anyway before my 7 battalions stationed there converge on you, followed up by 30 Doves when my order arrives.

No, I was placing it under my protection to KEEP THEM FROM BEING INVADED. Why are your troops still there? The only reason they were in the first place was because of Finn, he's no longer a threat know so you should withdraw. There's no reason for you to be there.

Oh and my 22 F-22's and 40 plus UAV stealth bombers stationed in South Korea would just cluster bomb your three battalions.
Not to mention I have 2 whole battle fleets stationed in the Pacific.

7 battalions buddy, 7.
And yeah they never left because of more threats from you, Wang, and Ultra. The Philippines are militarily allied to me so that we can protect them against invasion, and that they in turn would do the same for us if we got invaded.

You have... Let's see, one week to completely vacate the Philippines, that is, if the Admins will allow you to be there in the first place, before the entire Indo Union military converges upon you. That was not a threat.

When you say 'blockade the island' does that mean you're stopping my troops from entering or leaving the Philippines? If so, that's not good enough.

Being much closer to the Philippines than other nations our influence would be stronger, also take into account that Finn said he would 'Take' as in 'Invade' the Philippines, an I protected them. In return for our help, I would have thought it perfectly likely that they ally with us, also in the light of the threat of Wang and Ultra.

FOO! OH MAH GAWD DAWG! Breaking news from the Pacific!

5 Western Confederation B-1B bombers took off from Midway earlier today. The entire approach until a few miles out from their target, a certain airbase named Supadio (or it’s an island, it wasn’t clear), was done from 50 feet above sea level. They avoided radar for quite some time, thanks to their low altitude and jamming equipment, until they swooped up and blasted the runway and planes to bits. The planes escaped the same way they entered, with no damage or loss. Talk about a surprise attack! All of Ultra’s other orders I think would best remain under wraps for now, unless the Indo-Union has spy satellites or a good intelligence force.

But wait, there’s more! 75 stealth UAVs, 40 from Korea, and the rest from the New Englander Pacific base, took off also today, and attempted to strike Indo-Union drydocks, fuel reserves, airbases, and SAM installations. Unfortunately for them, the SAM sites didn’t reveal themselves after the B-1 attack, and the bases were on full alert. Some 10 UAVs were shot down, and no matter how many F-22s the attackers had in the sky, they couldn’t stop those missiles and other weaponry.

So yea, the Western Confederation, New England, and I think Korea are now all at war with the Indo-Union. I was verified combat mod by them, so Danny and everyone else, send your reports to me. Don’t like what happens? Too bad, you chose me, deal with it. /puts on sunglasses

Anyhow, it's true that contemporary knowledge on military equipment dictates what we find plausible in the political realm.

We like to see a cohesive flow of ideas that fit with the common idea of future technology (within the 20-30 year realm).

Still, I do agree that an upgraded F-22 could beat Awe's fighter; and this comes from a technical aspect. The F-22 has parallel alignments and lacks ninty-degree surfaces. Looking at Awe's fighters, we can see he has straight-edge alignment in several areas (mostly the air intakes) and thus has a higher ping. But, we don't know what kind of electronic countermeasures he has either nor what condition the F-22 is in. So . . .

Anyhow, the administration still loves you guys and we don't mean to subject anyone to dire bashing.

Looks like I know what to invest in.

Today in China:
-Work has begun on further advancing our electronic warfare platform.
-Awe wishes he could build non-rectangle air intakes, but he just lacks skill.
-Guangzhou will fall in a few days.
-Qinghai, with those big bad Alenians already in Xinjiang, has decided to join us. Sichuan and Yunan are neutral, and Tibet says quite clearly: "If you want it, come and get it."
-Production goes on, we'll be investigating those Valkyries soon.

F-22's don't automatically trump everything. This group is first and foremost about using your MOC's to simulate geopolitics. Granted, as in my case, I don't have the creations built to equip an entire army, so in that case, using real world tech is fine. But in the good Doctor's case for instance, he pretty much can totally re haul his country's military with his own MOC's. It's generally considered as a rule that if someone's MOC's are of good enough quality, they are better then real world equipment, due to it's age in-group. Build quality of your creations is directly proportional to it's combat effectiveness.

But...those of us who are still in middle skill and have yet to reach your epic building skillz get to rely on real world equipment and their MOCs...right?Also, I remember a couple good MOCs that were bashed and deemed near useless because they weren't military enough ;_;

A propeller powered biplane, maybe. A jet powered one would be massively unstealthy, but would have tremendous lifting power. It'd still lose in a fight with a fighter, though, because you'd be most likely to see 21st century biplanes in a bomber or ground attack role.

An SOF group performing a HAHO jump infiltrated Dagestan's capital of Makhachkala at roughly 0120 hours EST today. The task force had the objective of capturing and/or eliminating an extensive list of high-value targets. Although this is the first mention of Dagestan within the confines of the Third Chechen War, pocketed attacks have been occurring from the get-go as to neutralize any threat of the secessionists pushing further onto Russian soil. Anyhow, some forty-three targeted individuals have been neutralized leaving the republic's government in turmoil with the drop of their assembly's population. With that said, an ultimatum was handed to Dagestan at 1700 hours EST requesting they leave their union with Chechnya and reintegrate with the Federation or face extensive indiscriminate bombing with munitions including incendiaries. At 1843 hours EST, our request was met upon all conditions and Dagestan has returned to the status quo as a federal subject of the Russian Federation. This is some of the greatest news since the two-month intervention started.

A coalition occupation force is now being arranged to control the area under Martial Law until a new puppet regime can be planted in the subject. Many of the autonomous rights once held by the republic will be revoked and the area may be united under a new Oblast formation as to better govern the area without having to win a mound of elections. At any rate, forward operating bases will be permanently left in the area to cease the influx of radicals that may cause further issue in the area. More news later.

As a late tack-on, the Federation has put in a large order for a new MRAP. The design has already been tried and tested under clandestine use in the Caucasus; not like there is anything overly complicated about an over-sized guntruck. This vehicle replace most other aging designs and will pretty much run the role of a supply and troop transport. The public unveiling will hopefully occur tomorrow.

Today, in the Western Confederation...

Celebrations were held in Manila today as the islands received word they were being liberated from the invaders. Several gorilla groups (possibly with ties to Williams? That is still under investigation) offered their services but were warned to keep their heads down in order not to endanger civilian centers needlessly.

Operation Stalwart Conviction began today, a full-scale domestic military exercise that saw the mass, and rather seamless, occupation of the dozen or more strategic defense positions on all points of our borders. A note to any paranoid persons, it has been along all of our borders on all four sides. Especially areas around the Illinois area because of recent gang activity.

Strategic and tactical bomber wings have been placed at airfields in such a position that they could meet any significant attack within 15 minutes, but be far enough back that evacuation is possible if directly attacked. Fighter wings are with them, being swelled with F-29s. F-89s have been put in 5 areas for themselves, with two or three at each station. Infantry groups have been stationed with them, at least 500 men with 20 tanks apiece. A full battery of artillery and mobile SAMs accompany them. This is not an invasion stopper, just a slow down until we get concentrated.

The Brigand-class vessel is about half done, the WCS Baja is well on its way to Midway by now.

With the refusal of the Indo Union to see reason, we will continue to try to resolve this situation quickly. It is still not too late. The IU is reminded that there is much land out there besides the Philippines.

I will not cowardly back down to your usurping of my allies. I will fight with every last capable soldier, every armored unit, every airborne vehicle, every last naval vessel, until I either thwart your attacking army, or die defending my land (in the game, not in real life :P).

Even if you do destroy me, You'll probably be left with half of your military aircraft, and a lot of bad press from nations like China, the PCU, Australia, and others who do not like you greedily taking the Philippines. But hey it's your call.

Go find your own land, or fight me.

In other news: our 30 shiny new Doves are fueled and ready, along with another 6 Valkyries we scavenged from the reserve. Artillery units and tanks are stationed at the coast of Java, and our naval vessels are keeping close to the coast. All airbases, hangars, factories, army bases, and other important locations in danger of being taken out by enemy air raids are on full alert, with spotters as well as radar, and lots of Flak and SAM installations. Amphibious tanks/APCs are being deployed across Borneo, and more battalions arrive by chinook.

Overall, the entire Indo Union is in full mobilization.

Short report, for I am tired and have many schools tomorrow.

Taking the sneaky route in a different manner, WC B-1s flew around Borneo and over still-divided parts of Indonesia at low altitude to attack more Indo-Union airbases, specifically, Halim. This time, they shot up 500 km out and released their loads of cruise missiles, which took a heavy toll on Halim base. This was not without cost though, 1 B-1 was shot down by ground SAMs and two more were moderately damaged. They made for the east.

Suddenly, 20 Chinese and PCU supplied, Indonesian piloted Miantiao/Dove fighters turned up on the scene. They engaged the retreating B-1s, and shot down two more. However, New England and Korean F-22s in the area engaged themselves, downing two Doves themselves before forcing the attackers to retreat. One F-22 took heavy damage.

But wait, there's more! While many F-22s were out messing with the Indo-Union, 10 other Doves snuck up on Korean airbases, using a similar tactic to the WC's B-1s, and struck in their own ground attack. About 10 stealth UAVs based in Korea, and three more F-22s were taken out of line. One Dove was lost to AA, another was damaged by patrols.

Keep in mind, Danny's lost about a third of his air force aside from the Dove's by now, thanks to those anti-airbase operations. The situation is grim, Indo-Union, but you can recover yet. As for you Americans, there's still time to mess up. Be wary!

Thanks for the report Awe. To be honest, I thought the IU counter air measures would hold up more effectively against the air raids, but whatever.

We have started a new underground project, of building temporary underground bunkers and hangars for our remaining air force.

The doves and Valkyries (hmm, these haven't been mentioned yet?) will soon not be our only aero ace. We're developing a new high speed anti air UAV, which will sport plenty Air-to-air missiles and scramjet engine. Also, some new stuff for our navy which I'm not going to reveal to the world at this time. Yeah making all this new stuff will hurt our economy for sure, but to be frank, we're not really bothered about that right now.

Great news come from CDC. El Presidente took a break from his vacation today to witness a large exhibation displaying great new things being developed by Caribbean Tech. The experimental M192 Medium Tank, with its semi-amphibious capabilities and great versatility looks very promising. Many different varients were displayed, such as APCs, air-defense vehicles, and self propelled guns, yet we they are still working on the turret. This tank is relatively inexpensive to produce, and needs a very low crew to operate, so we expect to export many to our allies. Also showcased were the M902 AAV, a great new Amphibious Armored Vehicle, making use of the M1182 Remote Weapons System. Our marine corps are already asking for a sales quote on the vehicle, and we hope we can put them into service soon. Basic moc ups of the newly started F-42 Dominador were shown, and while the aircraft is still in its very early stages, it is already an improvement over the Mig-21. To support the new aircraft we will soon have, several new runways and airfields are being built around the CDC. Lastly, the M922 "Raskler" Squad Support Vehicle, a compact 3 man 4x4 vehicle based roughly off the Range Rover. With its small transport capacity it will definitely not replace our large GPMRV-C stocks anytime soon, however we think with a bit more fine tuning, it could be of great use in more urban settings and alongside logistics convoys.

May I remind you Ultra, you are the one attacking me, you were the one who raised an issue about me being allied to the Philippines. You are the one attacking my Airbase in Borneo. I will not cowardly back down to your usurping of my allies. I will fight with every last capable soldier, every armored unit, every airborne vehicle, every last naval vessel, until I either thwart your attacking army, or die defending my land (in the game, not in real life :P).

Even if you do destroy me, You'll probably be left with half of your military aircraft, and a lot of bad press from nations like China, the PCU, Australia, and others who do not like you greedily taking the Philippines. But hey it's your call.

Go find your own land, or fight me.

In other news: our 30 shiny new Doves are fueled and ready, along with another 6 Valkyries we scavenged from the reserve. Artillery units and tanks are stationed at the coast of Java, and our naval vessels are keeping close to the coast. All airbases, hangars, factories, army bases, and other important locations in danger of being taken out by enemy air raids are on full alert, with spotters as well as radar, and lots of Flak and SAM installations. Amphibious tanks/APCs are being deployed across Borneo, and more battalions arrive by chinook.

Overall, the entire Indo Union is in full mobilization.

Special Forces soldiers will drop down into the mountains of Vanuatu tonight. The aerial bombardment of incendiary bombs has already occurred, and hopefully they will capture the commander. A large fortress is the suspected target, but it has an underground tunnel network where the commander could be hiding because of the bombardment. But he may think this is another regular bombing run because all the time we bomb suspected targets just to exterminate any terrorist forces. To create a diversion a bombing squadron will travel with the transports and then take off in another direction, and bomb another area. The commandos will parachute down into the jungle around the fort. In the darkness they will be able to exterminate the guards silently and find the tunnels. If the commandos find themselves surrounded, a quarter of the Operation Rocket invasion force was mounting near the front line and will break their way through to the commandos to help them. So the commandos drop tonight around 2400 hours.

Well that was a very anticlimactic end to the entire conflict. Due to this conflict ending, we are begining to decrease our military readiness slowly, but our ships will still remain at sea for the time being. We ask the UFS whether or not they would like to conduct some naval and air excercises in waters around Iceland.

In other news production of HMS Battleaxe has begun, and we predict that it will take at least a month more to finish. Production of the first 5 lead ships of the Hermes-Class Frigate, has begun. This is the ship set to replace our againg Type-22 and 23 Class frigate. THose ships will slowly either be sold or their pieces sold for scrap.

Finally South Africa has agreed to for now let us build two shipyards in Africa, meant to build and produce ships for not only the Commonwealth Navy, but also for commercial purposes. These shipyards will be owned by BAE.

A large strategic bombing campaign over the remaining cartel pockets was launched at 12:00 AM this morning, to the surprise of the (mostly) drunk and high mercenaries the cartel calls soldiers. The large scale of this campaign required almost all active duty air force units to participate, and they collectively dropped over 500 tons of ordnance. Highly coordinated logistics was key in the sucess of this mission, and countless cargo flights were flown in, filled to the brim with fresh munitions, to keep the "bombers" supplied. While these missions were mainly carried out by Mig-21s, it served to provide good low-flying experience to our pilots. Hundreds of evacuation flights were called in beforehand, saving the lives of thousands of innocent women and children (and not-so-innocent men willing to surrender and head to the labor camps), and they were prompt to arrive again 24 hours after the bombing comenced, to capture thousands more prisoners (luckily they were brought sufficient ammounts of medical equipment and staff, so many wounded cartel members were able to be treated).

Still working out the specifics, but basically I sell you my cars and food (much cheaper then from America or Europe), and you and Whanry can drill for oil freely in the Gulf (following my environmental regulations). We can also invest freely in each others business. Also, we sell arms and military equipment to each other tax free. Whanry can also sell us his rum, duty free. All of this trade, however, would require a bit of extra security from pirates, which I'm sure our navies can provide (if were all a bit more active in patrolling the trade routes).

Today, in Pacific War I, a Virginia-class submarine from the WC showed itself and launched ten cruise missiles at the base the new Indo-Union Doves were reported to be at. All missiles hit, and the base was destroyed. Except... Only 4 Doves were there.

The other Doves, mirroring the tactics used by the WC enemy, had just taken off minutes before, flying in very low over the water all the way up to Korea. Repair crews were still at work up there, but mobile SAMs and AAA had shown up. It didn't make much difference, the attack was low, and it was fast, and over in minutes. Much of the base was heavily damaged, in a way, a mimick of what the WC did two days back.

In short, Danny got sneaky, while losing another air base and any planes that were there. If this war is drawn out, it doesn't look good for his forces. The Americans still have the high ground. Again, I'm not being biased for my own planes, if he hadn't set that attack off, they'd be gone. It was sheer luck.

The PCU has made a deal with the Indo-Union to better their, in our eyes, ailing military. The name of the deal is the Lending Act.

In summary, we lend them a certain number of a plane or tank. They keep those planes for however long the conflict runs, and then they return the equipment after the war. If for any reason one of those items of equipment is damaged beyond repair, they will be charged for the whole price of that unit.


The first act of this bill is to lend 50 of the MT/AGSM-1 tank. This will help their Anti-Air power.

EDIT:

A second act has been passed as of 1:14 AM CST with the lending of one LA-class sub, 4 Ticonderoga Cruisers, 8 Arleigh Burke Destroyers, and 3 Oliver Hazard Perry Frigates. As usual, the full price will be paid if these are destroyed.

The drills that were scheduled for Iceland have now concluded, with several live fire tests of both the LOASM and BVRAAM, in which we have concluded both do their job well. The LOASM gave barely enough indication of distance to the target, and also made it hard for anti-missile defenses to track and destroy them(although radar was able to detect the launch planes). The Air-To Air missiles were found to be a lethal weapon up to around 120 kilometers, after that distance (with a max range of 160) evasion is typical, and accuracy is severely reduced. However, this was expected, and the missile has entered mass production.

Today, in the Western Confederation...

While news of victories in far off places continue to increase public morale, more serious things are on the minds of the WCHC. The Brigand arrived from its escort duties in the Atlantic, and while her mission was successful (Israeli reports indicate that the tanks are performing well and have made a good impression on the front lines), it was marked with tragedy. The vital technology was delivered safely to the HC and it will be implemented and produced as soon as practicable.

The test operation that sprang off a few days ago has come to an end. The positions will remain occupied, but the readiness drill has been called off. Due to increased international situations, the Great Falls's workforce has been nearly doubled. New projections put her operation by month's end. She will be taking on the F-29 and 89 as her main compliment. F-29s are now at 75 total, and mounting the new AA missiles developed earlier.

Our trainees are coming along just fine, so far 20,000 have enlisted for all other services, and 10,000 for the army. That's quite the number, and it will be awhile before we get them all trained. PUSH-UP and SEAL training goes well.

More work was done on the M192 AMBT, yet a turret solution has yet to be found. The CDC Marine Corps placed an order for 100 M902 Medium Tanks, however their complex nature may lengthen production time. More work was done on the F-42 project, and a prototype was even built for testing already. Airbase construction is going well, and expansion of our current bases, with more training facilities, is also slated. Production of the AK-92 is in full swing, and our factories have already cranked out several hundred of them. Munitions production is also going smoothly, and we just acquired a contract to supply all ammunition for Colombia’s military. This contract also covered the sale of various pieces of equipment, and 200 M908A3 Longhorn MBTs.

Just as an FYI, such things as whether or not pilots bailed out (concerning loss to your country's military and all that) fall under the domain of the CM. Just because Awe didn't mention it, you can't just decide whether or not your pilots survived. That's Awe's job at the moment.

Something about retaliating to equipment sales during wartime...

Thanks for reminding me, this may be a good time to state the Baltic Union's trade policy. If any nation-at-war wishes to purchase war materiel from the BU does so with a risk.

By purchasing equipment from us, if we are not directly allied with you, you assure your opponent the opportunity to purchase the same number and type of equipment you did.

This is essentially done to ensure our neutrality in any conflict,by not predominantly selling items to one side.

So essentially Ultra, by buying those 30 AAFV-1es, you've guaranteed Danny's right to also purchase 30 AAFV-1es.


Also, I've been looking back on the roots of this conflict, and this is basically what I gather:

1. Korea tried to integrate the Phillipines, wanting more land.

2. The Indo Union, not wanting a potential enemy to move in so close, made a military alliance with the Phillipines, not to integrate them, but to keep them out of others' hands. He then moved troops there as a protective force.

3. Jake, seeing this, and thinking that Korea deserves more land, even though Korea has nothing at all that relates it to the Phillipines, decides that the Indo Union is intruding on his friend's property, and tries to throw his weight around to keep the Indo Union out.

4. Ultra, seeing his friend Jake engaged in an argument, joins in and, deciding that 90 years after liberation, the Phillipines would still be best friends with the U.S. (Even though other examples of liberated ares like Vietnam beg to differ). Ultra decides that since the United States of America is the bestest ever, her interests should never be put in jeopardy, and goes off to challenge the Indo Union.

5. Ultra and Jake reach the conclusion that since the Phillipines are best friends with America, they can't be friends with Indonesia, and the Indo Union can't really have an actual military alliance, so logically, the Indo Union must be invading.

(this point is where we fall off the precipitous cliff towards conflict, as it is this clonclusion, reached by the Americans, in which they decide to completely override pre-established facts and refute the Indo-Union's claims. However, because neither Ultra nor Jake speaks for either the Phillipines or the Indo Union, it is not within their power to decide whether the military alliance is just an alliance or not. So Danny is morally in the right here).

6. Both sides are unwilling tho concede that they might be wrong, and argue back and forth, getting more and more angry.

7. Danny begins swearing and acting like an 8-year-old, in the process losing all sympathy others might have felt for him.

8. Ultra and Jake initiate war to prove their point.


Boy, don't you guys just love how realistic and mature this new group is?

Surpirisingly accurate.
Except I started swearing after ultra and Jake initiated war to prove their point. I was just really annoyed at them, not for them attacking me, but for their 'reasoning' behind it.

I'm sorry, I'll stop that. But as for sympathy from other nations? Well that's a little overrated I think. Sympathy doesn't seem to do much these days. Even being allied to Australia hasn't seemed to do much.

Well, I'm certainly interested to see your proof to the contrary...

As for the rest, I have already established that you do not need to know any reason for my actions. However, since there are so many people who think I'm insane and just being imperialistic, then I will spell it out so you all can understand clearly.

I have no interest in further Pacific expansion beyond my claimed islands (which are all unoccupied), with the possibility of some other unclaimed islands, but nothing big. The thing about the Philippines being America's allies is, to my reckoning, true. I, however, brought that up only to point out to Danny that he would have to fight history to claim what he did; not to try to claim the Philippines for myself. I was approached by certain members about such an operation, which I promptly undertook using minimal resources on my part to support the actions of my allies. Finn hasn't got much room to expand, and an invasion of the Philippines seemed the most logical decision for him.

Danny, however, has the entire South-east Asian area to take (probably all the way to India's border, if he's willing to bribe a few warlords here and there). I have stated my position and I will disengage as soon as he relinquishes the Philippines. I have given Danny every possible opportunity to back out. In the meantime, I'm taking out whatever weapons he could use to oppose a Korean invasion.

Sorry about that, we will try to help when we finish this war in Vanuatu if you need it.

Speaking of Vanuatu, the special forces commandos have captured the commander. but as they were exiting the fortress, they found themselves surrounded. The built up force on the fornt line we created broke through
enemy lines and created a gap for the commandos to escape. As helicopters swooped in and rescued them, they had the commander alive but RPG fire knocked their helicopter down into a field. With the enemy commander still alive with one of the commandos, more terrorists swarmed the downed chopper. The commando was shot multiple times was eventually killed in action. Part of the large armored force got to field immediately and killed off the terrorists. One of the commandos who was with the force was a skilled marksman, and the commander, trying to hobble off into the jungle tied up, got a sniper round to the leg. They finally got the commander, and a chopper carried the commander out out of the war zone and back to our lines. 4 of the commandos were awarded the Victoria Cross because of honor and bravery. 3 were awarded it posthumously. They terrorists now haveno commander, not much of an army, and a large force ready to annihilate them at any minute. We hope they are willing to give up. The war in Vanuatu is finally at it's end.

Now, before I respond Vehemently to your ridiculous excuses, I'd like to clarify a point:

Also, the Philippines are not allied with the U.S., since the U.S. liberated them, they were happy with us for about ten years, but then increased conflict over Filipino sovereignty (America tried to keep some control over the islands after WW II, which the Filipinos didn't like), and of course the new found American hatred of everything Muslim has really soured relations.


Actually, we took them from Spain after the Spanish-American war in 1898. We promised them their own nation (same to Cuba), but when they tried to rise up, we crushed it and kept it around. There may have been another uprising. In WWII, the Japanese showed up, but they were even worse. We only granted the Philippines independence after WWII.

Truth be told, as of 2011, the Philippines and America are not close friends at all, so your "historical alliance" argument hardly holds water when we look at more recent relations.

And also, saying that Finn should be allowed o expand into Korea is hardly an argument. This is supposed to be a more realistic group, not just expansion for the sake of expansion. Korea doesn't have anything to do with the Philippines, and Finn's trying to take them is not justified in any way, because all he wants from them is more of his color on the map.


Well, just goes to show you. I don't need an explanation for anything.

45 FBI agents (both assault squad level teams)
100 marines

Work has begun on the improved C5B Main Battle tank, however, due to industrial capacity being used in other areas, this development is likely to take some time (AKA all my Lego is packed up at the moment).

The WC rhetoric of denying other nation's relations with NPC areas is no small surprise to the UFS, given past situations.

A minor name change may be possible in the near future for the country. Legislatures are debating whether changing the name from the Union of Federated Scandinavia, to the Union of Nordic Federations.

In Greenland, about 400 of the 600 paratroopers were picked up by Task Force 2, the other 200 remaining for internal security reasons. We do feel bad about forcing the managment change, but frankly, the Greenlanders' reactions have been, if anything, indifferent. Plans for a large Joint Branch Military base have been drawn up. Construction will begin as soon as the minute details of the integration are ironed out.

Today, in the Western Confederation...

The WCHC met today about the Pacific situation. It is contemplating strategic opportunities as well as options presented and possible benefits. Teleconferences with the SAC commander at Midway have been most revealing. Estimates put the fruition of Operation Unyielding Resolve a few days away. While only committing a total of 5 aircraft and one ship to the operation, results have been far above projections. The WC remains confused as to why they are being treated as they are by the international community, when they are not the primary aggressors. Despite international naysayers, the crews of three of the lost bombers have been recovered, with about 75% survival rate. The description of the fourth bomber's literal disintegration leaves little hope for survivors and the search has been called off.

The UFS condemnation of the Western Confederation comes as no surprise, apparently the reconciliation was completely one-sided.

Though Williams has disappeared once again, the Guatemalan military has initiated their own mobilization. They remain unwilling to let the WCHC know of their full intentions. Training of their pilots has finished ahead of schedule, and they continue to train on their own. Our pilots will be coming home shortly, with the exception of three which will remain to answer any further questions. Re-stenciling of the flight controls from English into Spanish has begun, should only take a day to do. Port works in Guatemala continue in construction and are almost completed. The first FTC is 70% done.

The Brigand's sister ship is at 60%. The Great Fall's refit comes along well. The WCS Baja (PTR) has reached Midway and completed shakedowns on the way. Her sisters will be a long time in coming, since only one drydock is in service at this time.

From the WC, yesterday's events in the Pacific War I were quiet. Here's what they said for themselves: "The Western Confederation, poised on the precipice of a climactic master stroke against Indonesia, has inexplicably suspended combat operations."

The New England ships, on the other hand got some action. Half of the freighters carrying Pacific Union equipment to Indonesia were sunk.

However, the Indo-Union was up to some more sneakies. 10 Su-30s, 23 Doves and 25 MAF-1s, all of those that were not destroyed, were sent out on a mission to attack a Korean air base north of Kunsan. This time, the planes were detected, and 3 MAF-1s were downed before they got into striking range. The more stealthy Doves managed to get through, and so did the 17 other MAF-1s. In the ensuing attack, about 5 and a half Su-30s were downed (one was forced to bail in the nearby sea), while 8 MAF-1s were shot down, and 3 Doves were blown to bits. . The base, like yesterday's target, was extremely heavily damaged. Meanwhile, the IU navy set sail for the east.

To recount: New England sank PCU freighters with equipment, IU lost planes in a daring attack, and WC sat there and did nothing yesterday.

Today's report will come later tonight.

And now for what really happened today in the Pacific War I.

10 F-117s from the WC, operating out of Midway, attacked the remaining IU bases, causing light to moderate damage, hitting only runways and hangars with their lone 500 bombs.

New England ships pulled back from Korea, returning to their Pacific bases in fear of submarine attacks. The WC also had four cutters on picket duty nearby, when suddenly...

A great degree of radar signatures turned up everywhere. Much chaos was caused, and everything went to full alert. However, these signatures all vanished at once. It was attributed to technical problems, though WC officials suspect there was something more to it. In the next hour, a much smaller set of radar blips turned up. Not knowing what it was, or if it was even real, the WC cutters ordered whatever these things were to turn back. When suddenly...

The Japanese! Surface ships were detected, and a flight of Great Falls helicopters were set out to deal with them. Japanese fighters swooped out of the darkness to greet them. Weighing the risks, the WC choppers turned back (you don't believe in suicide runs when they can be avoided, right Ultra?). No losses. The Japanese surfaces ships opened fire on the beaches of Pusan, Korea, and destroyed the airport there. 40,000 troops promptly landed. When suddenly...

The Pacific Union fleet departed Hawaii, making full speed towards Indonesia. Another convoy left Portland, under destroyer escort and air cover, also carrying war materials to Indonesia. 4 B-52s, 12 Doves, and 4 F-22s (all flown to Taiwan via Alaska apparently), struck at Korean targets all night long, in waves. The targets were airbases in more inland regions. New England and Korean forces were unprepared for this assault, no PCU losses. When suddenly...

Nah, not suddenly. Looks like Taiwan is allowing PCU planes there, such autonomy is pushing their legal status with us, but so it goes. I expect a firestorm for this.

There's me, Awe, Finn (he doesn't count because he'll be dead soon), Brendan, and if you're that grey blob on the map, you. And yes Awe is siding with the Asians and the PCU.

And Jake was attacking me, read the CRs. And he was the one using Finn's bases, i don't know about Ultra. And apparently Ultra doesn't care about the Philippines, after the rest of the world proved that Philippine relations with America had turned sour. And from what I heard, the original reason Ultra attacked me was because of Finn, who wanted to expand to the Philippines. Ultra clearly said he would destroy my military hardware to prevent me from stopping Finn taking the Philippines. Yeah i know, everyone's been changing their words around, and it all gets really confusing.

I'm not going crazy am I Awe? What I said above is right, right?

You're in America, not Asia.

The mission went very smoothly, with no shots fired and no bloodshed. Juan will go on trial for a slew of felony charges, and will most likely be executed.

It's illegal to double post now Jake. Someone's gonna delete both posts..

@ Matt
Thankyou for your support. I was going to ask you to send some of your force in to help defend Indonesia, but now that Ultra's ran away from bigger threats (the rest of Asia), that won't be necessary. I'm no longer the centre of attention in this war, so if you want to help The Asian alliance, you could help Brendan with Korea, or help Nick with Jake. I wouldn't suggest provoking Ultra though, now that he's backed down. If he were still in this war though, I would suggest it.

Anyway, in the Indo Union:
Our troops and vehicles that remained in Sulawesi have more or less crushed all resistance. The Civilians are now safe to return home, and rebuild what the warlords had undone. And the last warlord who thought he could hide out in Sumatra was captured and handed in to the Indo Union by CIVILIANS. Somewhat embarrassing for him... He is sentenced to hang for his crimes against the people of Sulawesi. Sulawesi is, thankfully, part of Indonesia once more.

The 5 Valkyries in Sulawesi have returned home to be refitted with the new mini guns with explosive ammunition. Another 6, followed closely by 5 (so 11) new Valkyries roll off the assembly lines.
NOTE: we have two Valkyrie construction lines.
One is Java, which produces about 6 per week, and one in Timor which usually makes 4, this time of course, 5.
We will continue building Valkyries until we have at least 60. (we have 17 right now).

The IU would like to purchase another 13 Doves from China, if possible. These will replenish the 13 we lost, so that we have 30 again.

Those Underground hangar bunkers I mentioned which got completed on two of our airbases: we are going to tear those hastily made things down, and start again at the foundations. Nearly every major airbase in Indonesia will soon have it's own underground hangar. This project, along with the reconstruction and improvement (in radar and defense) of our destroyed and damaged airbases will cost us 1.2 Billion dollars, so that's around a quarter of our annual military spending budget. All of this should be complete any time between 3 weeks and 2 months.

As for the underground hangars themselves: they're not exactly nuke proof, but the worst most conventional bombs could do is shake dust off the ceiling. The hangars use a ramp to transport planes in and out. A big solid bulk door protects the hangars' entrances. The hangars can fit either 10 fighter plane sized craft, or 4 cargo plane sized craft. They can also be used to protect land craft, or as a bunker for soldiers, if necessary.

Tis all for now. Just rebuilding and improving.

Ok, first: The Valkyrie project cost just over a billion, but that was last years budget. The war against the Warlords cost little, we lost a few dozen men, and only one two land vehicles. And anyway, that was last years budget as well. The Doves I got were from trading my Valkyries, which are now not that expensive to produce, and the 13 new Doves I intend to trade another 10 Valkyries for. So with the Underground Hangar project, Airbase repairs (some of that money is not just coming from the military, because some of the Airports are commercial as well), plane repairs, and other, we're looking at around 1.6 billion out of the military's annual budget, and maybe around 1 billion from governmental sources.

If you kill the pilots you'll be sorry, and so will a lot of other ships floating in the Pacific.

The planes allowed to stay at Ultra's Pacific airbases left yesterday and have already landed. Their number and model is classified. I also violated someone's airspace along the way. Deal with it.

In Chicago something very surprising happened. A string of homicide bombers blew themselves up yesterday. One bomber's explosives failed so we apprehended him and took him in for questioning. It appears he is a member of the Chicago Kings, and something even more surprising, "The King" himself is preaching Islam to his "inner circle" hence the bombing around the city. We promised to let the bomber go if he told us the location of "The King" and so he did. Then we sent him to a high security prison where he will be making recycled Styrofoam paper crafts for the rest of his life, along with some of his other buddies who were tipped off that he ratted out "The King."

Illinois has been claimed as an occupied territory of the Confederation (this means we have secured the border), expanding our Great Confederation from the Gulf of Mexico to the Great lakes. This has lead congress to vote over a name change or not. The vote passed in favor with a majority of people wanting to represent the Northern half of our nation as well.

The Royal Navy has accepted BAE's design for the new Centuar-Class Destroyers. Soon after Parliament authorized the production of 5 ships of that class to replace the aging Type-42 Class Destroyers. These ships and our old frigates will be sold to Cuba in an arms deal.

Parliament is also voting wheher or not to remove all capital gains taxes on UK markets. A vote and discussion of this happening will occur on Monday

@ Ultra, you claimed that all of your bomber crews had made it safely home, except one bomber crew which was MIA, and which the WC feared dead. Well, i'm saying they're not dead, which is something you would be thankful for I would have thought. And even better, you get them back if you want to pick them up yourself. If we cannot agree, we will have to consult Awe on the matter.

If you kill the pilots you'll be sorry, and so will a lot of other ships floating in the Pacific.


You DARE attack my navy vessels, you will regret it. Instead of sitting back and defending myself, Ill send in my quickly replenishing air force and destroy the same amount of vessels you destroyed.
Anyway, I just offered for Ultra to come and pick them up if he wanted. Why would I kill them if I offer them back?

Thank you Danny and Awe for letting me use your ports. Our fleet is sailing off from New Britain Island and will dock in Borneo. Then they will sail to and dock in Taiwan. And then I will definitely need to dock my fleet in Japan to fight in Korea alongside Japanese forces. So, Brendan, is it ok to dock my fleet in one of southern islands? That way we can get troops in and out of Korea.

Quick status update.

Frequent air patrols along the pacific between Borneo and the Philippines. The Philippines are helping us patrol the Celebes sea with boat patrols along the coast and what Navy vessels they have in the middle of the sea. Our flak and SAMs are pointing towards the North-East (figuratively speaking) in case anyone attacks from Korea. More Flak built and deployed. The way things are heading, another 200 or so Flak turrets and no enemy will be able enter our Borneo Airspace without being detected and/or shot at.

The construction of the underground hangars goes well, as does the rebuilding of the destroyed and damaged airbase.

Combat training for new soldiers taking place on some of our small islands.

Troops leaving Sulawesi.

New navy vessel under construction. We sold a couple our old ships to Malaysia (whom we are on friendly terms with.

Ok, call this off-topic, I don't care. I'm sick of people saying "I'm tired of your constant bragging." Now what on earth are you all talking about?

If you count smack talk when I am directly targeted by another aggressively, well, guilty as charged and you all should understand that. Because I've certainly put up with it from you all in the past.

But what have I done otherwise? And I want exact quotes, copy and paste if necessary, but no generalities. Back it up or back off (uh oh, aggressive talk...).

EDIT: Wait a second. Only one person said that, for some reason I thought two had; but it was an incorrect 'reply' edit... My bad.


Oh, I don't know, but could be because, uh... Lemme think... Because you ARE bragging? You should look into that possibility. You always have to be right, you always have to be the best (when you're not in some cases) and you always have to brag about it every inch of the way.

I'll ask you a question and you answer 'can I help it if I'm a brilliant tactician?' that's bragging, correct me if I'm wrong. There are many more examples, in this ICV alone, let alone the others. Your apparent over confidence that everyone should run and hide from you, and things like "there's no safe place for you on this Earth". I mean sheesh, we're not all French military commanders you know.... <.<

In Chicago something very surprising happened. A string of homicide bombers blew themselves up yesterday. One bomber's explosives failed so we apprehended him and took him in for questioning. It appears he is a member of the Chicago Kings, and something even more surprising, "The King" himself is preaching Islam to his "inner circle" hence the bombing around the city. We promised to let the bomber go if he told us the location of "The King" and so he did. Then we sent him to a high security prison where he will be making recycled Styrofoam paper crafts for the rest of his life, along with some of his other buddies who were tipped off that he ratted out "The King."

Yep, I'm just that way.

But seriously, let me show you my viewpoint of all this and maybe someone around here has an open enough mind to see it.

I have the right to say what I want, same as everyone else. However, I am one out of ~20 members, who all seem to think it there duty to debate everything I say. So I am having to debate three or four rebuttals every time (not to mention flaming follow-ups), which is extremely time consuming and breeds malcontent.

Basically, we have two choices:
1. Everyone stops debating my every sentence.
2. I stop caring what other people say about what I say.

Option 2 seems the most logical since I have the most control over it. Because, honestly, is there anything (that you ALL would agree on) that I could do to make you all stop h.ating me? Not likely.

So I really only have one choice, no?

I think that's why it seems to you that we're ganging up on you, but we're not, you've just annoyed a lot of people. Now, this applies to the stats on the 18th DSF as well: if you can't play the game fairly, and if you don't care what other people think to the extent that you just contradict everything we say, then don't play with us. You ask for respect yet you give none in return. From this comment on I'm going to ignore any attempts by You Ultra to continue annoying me by ignoring your contradictions altogether.

Just a thought, but that could be the case.

You, sir, are a voice of reason. That's probably the case.

I do have a rather outspoken nature, and I speak sometimes when I should probably hold my tongue. Trust me, I've spoken out about some very touchy political subjects in front of my more leftist employers and been stomped on, so I don't fear much in the way of reprisal. And I don't think it taught me much...

I don't disrespect other people's opinions, as some have suggested, and I don't generally dislike anyone either. It's just that I'm getting very, very tired of what has become mundane.

I'll probably regret saying what I said earlier too at some point, but I'm not in a good mood right now, more of a 'survival mode,' if you will.

Now if I may proffer my own theory:
After saying such things folks got a general dislike for me and suddenly everything I say is subject to snide remarks and criticism. Can we not all just agree to disagree and leave it be?

Today, in the Western Confederation...

Project Wake, the facade to the strategic operations on Indonesia has terminated. Real plans to rebuild the islands is on the drawing board, to begin mid-February. Palmyra Island is also on the drawing board, probably sometime this spring.

The USNA agreement has paid off again. Talks are going on between us and Alaska to purchase an operating base in the Aleutians. Option Pacific Strategic Deterrence is therefore about 25% complete. The Midway SAC commander has reported on the overall situation since the conclusion of operations. OPSD will be rolled into SAC as soon as it's done.

Guatemala has been gathering at their border with Belize. Rumors are flying about a continuation of a war that nearly started 30 years ago, but was stopped by Great Britain. The WC is against a war, but because of the treaty, has little to say about it. Williams, between disappearing and appearing, has gathered himself a regular army. Guatemalan intelligence is reluctant to do anything about him, since its eyes are elsewhere at the moment.

The Brigand-class ship in Corpus Christi is about 60% completed, and the Great Falls refit is still on schedule for first of February. The second PTR's keel has been put down in the Baja.

Due to increasing conservative pressure on the PM, the defense budget has been forced to be roughly tripled from our minuscule amount originally proposed. Even the very leftist PM and cabinet have realized that with two major national scares within two months, the military should be given more funds. While a budget has yet to be drawn up, it is anticipated that particular focus will be on the Navy, and large number of imported gen 5 fighters will be ordered (yes, I am looking to evaluate aircraft).

However, to increase troop morale, it has been decided that the first thing to be be replaced are the AK5s, RK95s, and M416s, to be replaced by the new AR7s (which were previously only available to spec ops).

Funding for the indigenous fighter program has come under severe problems after 4 months of development with about zero progress.

^ and look where it got them...


Hey, Hitler went down spectacularly. And last I checked, Iran and North Korea were still doing as fine as such states can be.

Oh no, don't pull out now! My bombings and Matt's navy will have gone to waste. Finn deserves what he's getting.

@ Awe
When you say 'Indonesia is finished with', you mean that Ultra backed out right? Because I was far from having my military paralyzed by his attacks. This thing could've dragged out for months without outside help before Ultra would finally defeat me....

With the recent surrender of Dagestan, Chechnya, especially the city of Grozny, is feeling the pressure. If they do not collapse politically, they will surely falter militarily. Grozny has now been under siege for beyond one week and large precision munitions dropped from the air have amounted their fair share of enemy casualties. We expect the local resistance rate to have dropped by roughly 18% in most areas. With the area now fully encircled by friendlies, that percentage is expected to double in the next week or so.

The only mentionable cities now left mostly untouched by combat in Chechnya are Gurdemes and Novogrodnensky. The cities just west and north of these two have been decimated by continual precision air raids and rapid troop movements that have secured most weapon caches and have eliminated most high-density combat sectors. Hopefully with the recent pressure being stamped upon Grozny, the local assemblies (riots, nationalists, former police offices, etc.) will take hold of these outliers and integrate them within the sword of the Federation.

Other than that, the war in Georgia is almost entirely one-sided. Large bombing runs on T'bilisi have hit the capital area hard. Government offices, regimental holdings, local airports, and all of things of that nature have been attacked to an extent in which they are barely usable. This has allowed friendly forces to press outside of S. Ossetia and grab the city of Gori. After the latter has been afflicted by large-calibre munition drops, our mechanized brigade in Akhalgori managed to storm the city with minimal resistance. Still, we have recognized what seem to be local militias forming under governmental pressure to arm all able persons under the guise of assimilative threat. Of course this is a flagrant outcry to save face and hopefully push us out, but we have the upper-hand with a grand AF capable of dealing heaving blows one sortie at a time.

To the west in Abkhazia, coalition forces have faltered a tad. A rally cry by the Georgian brigades managed to push our occupational forces from Zugdidi for the past four days or so. We are presently unable to counterattack due to the massive amounts of resources being pressed into Grozny. Still, we hold all Abkhazian boundaries making the loss at Zugdidi nearly irrelevant seeing as though one or two sorties of high-capacity bombers could easily neutralize all transportation junctures.

On a rather quick note, reserve moneys have been granted by the Assembly to be invested in more military programs. All this really means is that budgeting has been re-organized to cut other programs in order to pay off defense deficits. More economic and civil reports later.

Quoting Brendan Dore
My troops are confused. But, they said they'd like to agree with their Asian bruddas over in China. So yea, I'm staying in Korea.

What exactly is the objective of your entire invasion? You have little to no chance of taking over the entirety of the Korean Pennisula nor do you have anything to gain. Without a clear set objective in mind, there is no point for your invasion. You are just going to end up getting bogged down, taking immense casualties, and losing large amounts of assets for no reason. Now as an outsider, I advise you to stand down because there is no purpose for your invasion.

Yo Brendan, I'm really happy for you and Ima let you finish, but if you want to be in the Evil League of Evil, you can't bow down to outside sources. OF ALL TIME.

So yeah, a total 0f 17 MUH-1s have been built, with ten being delivered to the Western Confederation by the end of this week.
