Mexico:
Brazilians are digging in. 5 AM: C130 carrying paratroopers attempted to drop them into Mazatlan. Port engine blown off by MANPADS missiles. 12 paratroopers killed or too badly injured to leave the aircraft, the rest bailed out and were scattered throught Mazatlan. 10% deaths due to night landings in urban terrain, 30% injured to varying degrees. Events after landing are currently uncertain, since they're cut off from Brazilian troops and scattered. Aircraft crashed behind PCU lines due to damage to the control systems, status of possible survivors currently unknown but unlikely.
Mazatlan losses are mounting, but not quite at the exponential level that they could be taken if Mazatlan had been "prettied up" in the A-team style for their arrival. Several troops killed by bo0by traps while hunting for souvenirs in wreckage. Seems PCU troops are sneaky. Who knew?

Guatemalans entrenching their borders.

AU troops with armour and helicopter support starting a push. I don't know where they are or where they're going because until recently I didn't KNOW Dawn had troops in Mexico. I'm just going to say that they started out from wherever Dawn's base is and they're heading in the general direction of Mazatlan, since that's where all the fun is happening.

AU:
Texas second line troops assaulted the AU border with air support. Guatemalan and Belizian support also moving in. Ran into AU defenses, with enemy fighter cover making a mess of their CAS anti-insurgency aircraft. WC allies took significant casualties, losing an estimated 1400 men, 17 tanks, 23 IFVs, 14 Mongoose AI craft and 6 F-29s. AU casualties are ~700 men, 12 tanks, 12 F-16s, 4 F-22s and 2 F-35s.

I find it funny how so many people in this group idolize the "honor system." Since the beginning of US involvement in WWI, the honor system has continuously been broken and bent. Recent examples include France refusing to contribute to the NATO initiative in Afghanistan, Israel continually developing the West bank, and North Korea just being North Korea. Not only is honor dead, but it is without value in the modern world. Why play by the "rules" when there really are none. Sure, I would be pissed too if I got backstabbed a la Sponty/Cliffe, Cliffe/everyone (last group) and now WC+ allies/everyone, but it shouldn't be a shock to anyone anymore.

Nope, I didn't do anything. Not a single action has been taken by me in this war. I'm not a crook. I just don't like how I can't send a peacekeeping force to the PCU without you intervening while you can base WC bombers attacking civilians and military targets alike.

And plus just because some Jamaican bombers did something doesn't mean I didn't condone it, their not Jamaican American, or that I'm cracking down on them, AKA which I have been doing since I acquired Jamaica. So it doesn't make sense that if a Jamaican does something than its obviously my fault.

And I forgot to say...

BBC's Breaking News

Spain claims to be neutral, yet, have already supported the heinous attacks on the WC. These actions show the lies of the entire regime that Spain has been run under. They even have restorted to using falsified terrorist attacks to attack our credibility. These actions along with aiding global terrorism make their country seem like terrorists themselves.

And what do you mean I'm "basing" aircraft for his attacks? And since when in this conflict has he attacked civilian intentionally, the only one who's doing that is you, Egypt, and The PCU.

Oh, I have total faith in that. The two Confederacies have deliberately killed more civilians than anyone else here, though Japan comes close. It's why I'm prepared at home for a defensive game.

I agree somewhat. Although like I said, in the present day, Iran promises to not build nukes (they do it anyway), France was obliged by the NATO treaty to go to Afghanistan, they did not, and Israel has promised to work something out and have not done anything. Just saying that countries today do not adhere to this at all.

Oh lol, I thought by Jamaican bombers you meant suicide bombers who were Jamaican, not WC bombers. And no, none of his aircraft have conducted offensive operations from Jamaica. Sure, I don't deny that he has been flying over Jamaica to help me defend against any wouldbe invaders, but other than that not that I know of.

Exactly how many aircraft do you have?
You claim to operate 5+ carriers thats at least 450 aircraft. Plus the ones that your air force has, that's at least 600+. When exactly did you construct all of these 400+ MAFs (I subtracted 200 for existing aircraft, and even that's very very liberal).

Special broadcast from the Prime Minister of Spain:

Good evening my fellow Spaniards and Portuguese. I come to you today to speak of a pressing issue in global politics. As you may know, The Commonwealth has recently been "leashing us" from deploying peacekeeping forces to the Pacific Coastal Union. They claimed we would be partaking in offensive operations against the forces of the Western
Confederation. In actuality, they were due to perform in behind-the-lines actions such as helping citizens whose homes have been destroyed by the Confederations attacks, helping wounded innocents, and exacuated those caught in the fighting. At the time, it was let pass, as following through with our pledge would have lead to open warfare between us and them.

However, they have not stopped their aggressive nature at that. The Commonwealth has falsely labelled Spain as a terrorist nation. We have been quoted as "aiding terrorist activities, falsifying terrorist activities, attacking their credibility, etc". Furthermore, they falsely claim our partaking in any unannounced military actions, and that we have been the only ones attacking civilians.

My fellow Spaniards, I shall be the first to tell of these abominations done by the Commonwealth. They have been basing Western Confederation bombers in the island of Jamaica. This information was obtained through a strategic leak, and then sent to Madrid. Not only is this a blatant act of aggression, but hypocrisy. The Spanish military is not allowed to assist in giving aid to PCU civilians, but The Commonwealth can directly assist in combat. Even worse is that when confronted with the fact that they housed WC bombers, The Commonwealth has let slip that even Jamaican bombers have partaken in combat. London refuses to take responsibilty for the actions of it's regional militaries, and insists it has no hand in the war.

Therefore, I am left with only one choice in mind. I must forcefully ask The Commonwealth to cease all hostile activities in the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico, and to cease basing Western Confederation bombers which are actively sent into combat. Spain has been wrongly accused of violating neutrality, while in actuality it is The Commonwealth being the aggressor.

In a highly anticipated press conference on the UNC's official stance on Global Affairs, UNC Foreign Minister Herkko Pirkkalainen made the following statement.

"Good evening citizens of the Union of Nordic Countries. As all of you know, half the world is at war, and the dispute threatens to spread into Europe by extension of hostilities between the Commonwealth and Spain. The UNC condemns Spain's activist attitude and its very nearly American mindset. Further, we critisize the Commonwealth's blatant attempts to spark of hostilities between the two nations. On behalf of Europe, I speak to these countries; for the sake of continued European prosperity and unity, as well as peace in our safe corner of the globe, the UNC strongly urges both parties to 1) Immediately sever all military ties with the warring North American countries 2)agree on a settlent over the land of Gibraltar, which has been a polarizing topic for the past century and 3)call all units on war readiness to stand down. Number 3 is based off of both human and electronic intelligence which suggests that the Commonwealth has encircled the whole of Spain in preparation of a first strike.

I, as the Foreign Minister, with the backing of the Prime Minister and representatives from all 5 fine Nordic countries decalre that the nation that does not comply will be seen as an enemy of Europe and will severely complicate any and all diplomacy, both current and future, between that country. If it comes to a war, the UNC announces a neutral stance, that could change along with the situation. Europe must remain united to survive the storm of bitter violence surging throughout the world. I wish everyone a good night."

That being said, all intelligence agencies are active, and the military is preparing to act in case of hostile resistance to what analysts are calling the "Monroe Doctrine of Europe."

In a rushed additional statement, the Foreign Minister urged the PCU to call off its attack of Commonwealth Jamaica until this European Crisis is completely finalized. We await the Commonwealth's reaction.

He can actually have a go at that. He's got some old Soviet research facilities in his territory, although I'd expect it to be very hard to get them back online.

As for the other thing, well, it's not immoral to act to pre-empt threats like that in my book. Which has plastic pages so I can change it any time I like, but that's pretty standard, because if you don't change your opinions to fit the facts you may as well not have them.

I very much want Gibraltar on the table. I have no use for it, it's a rock with 30,000 people on it. However, my main concern is that you have a use for it. To go back to the beginning, I seem to recall you stationing 3 regiments in all foreign territories, triple the present day Royal Gibraltar manpower. And while I do not know exact numbers, you make it seem like you have also sent in aircraft and possible naval assets, neither of which are stationed in Gibraltar at this present time. It seems overkill for such a small territory that it makes it hard to believe it's sole purpose is defense.

Instead of returning it to Spain, I propose that Gibraltar is granted full autonomy, with neither country being able to base military units there. Both countries will be able to have diplomatic and commercial ties with the new country.

Two missile destroyers assailed the Panama Canal, destroying 3 locks and jamming a fourth. The death toll is approximately a thousand, but could be much higher.

PCU cruise missiles have been falling on Allied supply lines all day, along with various targets of opportunity. Needless to say, while the PCU is starting to run a bit low on cruise missiles, the Allied supply chain is fairly tattered, especially near the front lines.

Not that I had any hand in this whatsoever, I would just like to say what would happen when the west locks are destroyed. In context:

During WWII the Japanese were getting desperate. They needed a way to break the Allied supplies, and submarines weren't working. So they made a bold plan to build the largest submarines the world had seen before nuclear power, known as the I-400 class. It's in my avatar. It was large enough to carry several seaplanes in it. The plan was to sneak up to the Panama Canal, destroy the locks with bombs, and drain the reservoirs, rendering it completely useless for several months. Thus, Allied shipping would be hurt tremendously.

As I said before, I had no hand in this other than telling Nick about it a while back. I just felt obligated to explain in full.

Hey, found an interesting tidbit that works out wonderfully for me and very bad for everyone else on this continent. Between Peterson AFB and Offutt AFB, I control every satellite in the US arsenal. So, the PCU, EC, ACU, and Alaska have no satellites to use because all the hardware and mainframes are in my territory.

So, unless you started your own program and launched your own satellites with your own equipment, then you cannot use them at all. I just love this!

Unless I miss my understanding of cruise missiles, you can't hit moving targets with them, unless you program it to receive continuously changing GPS coordinates (because that's what it runs off of) which would be rather intensive for the apparent amount of missiles launched. How did they get pasted my literally hundreds of missile defenses?

Since the situation has died down slightly in terms of Spanish-British relations, Foreign Minister Pirkkalainen made another statement today.

"Once again, good evening citizens of the UNC, and indeed, all of Europe. The UNC is pleased to see that diplomatic options initiated yesterday has brought some common sense back to our European community. While we still urge both the PCU and Commonwealth to back down, we are pleased to see at least a temporary decrease in the severity of Anglo-Spanish relations. An analysis from our primary intelligence units as well as several lengthy discussions with the Commonwealth's Prime Minister has helped clarify the situation regarding Jamaica. While the Commonwealth was the provoker, the PCU was the instigator, thus the UNC will not follow through on threats to sever ties, since this war was not necessarily of their choosing. Likewise, we wish to strengthen our admittedly weak ties with Spain.

We still warn the warring American factions to steer clear of European water and airspace.

The UNC will now preemptively defend itself from what is sure to be claims of hypocrisy in terms of our neutrality; specifically the recent sale/ exchange of 100 C5A Main Battle Tanks to the Western Coalition. We remind those that may make said claims that a week ago, European crisis seemed unlikely, and thus the transaction was purely business. We assure critics that had any European nation been involved at the time the sale would not have gone through. I, as the Foreign Minister apologize for these actions that may be negatively percieved by the allied nations of China, PCU, AC and all other belligerents hostile to the WC's allies. We are still open to business and diplomatic transions with all nations of the world, in accordance to our policies of neutrality. We do what we preach, although we do wish that the rest of the world did likewise.

Thank you for your time this evening, and may the warmth of more peaceful days continue to grace the whole of Europe."

Bridges and tunnels and other such chokepoints, probably. In which case it's not your supply vehicles themselves that are messed up, but the roads they travel on.

Red ball express? No bells here.

And missile defenses: unless I miss my guess, cruise missiles typically travel at supersonic speeds and fairly low altitude, so it'd be very very difficult to shoot one down with conventional air defense systems.

Most advanced type we've got: http://en.wikipedia.org./wiki/Tomahawk_%28missile%29. Subsonic, top speed of 550mph. And phalanx guns have a habit of eating cruise missiles for breakfast.

There was only one supersonic cruise missile, but it was abandoned before development was completed.

I'm sorry, I just got a little perturbed when I have launched several such attacks and had the missiles just swatted out of the sky within seconds only to have an identical attack be resoundingly successful against me.

We would like to clarify a few things...

I do not deny that I have been making weapons for the WC and he is just a customer and ally. I have done nothing wrong just like Spain has done nothing wrong by selling tanks to the PCU.

The "attack" on your carriers was falsified by John Dawn and the CM has confirmed that no such attack will happen. I have always made it my policy that I would personally fly the unarmed product to a delivery location and nothing more. Until the aircraft is has landed at its delivery location, it is under my control. (In case your wondering, if you shoot down, harm, or kidnap the aircraft while they are mine, that is an declaration of war)I also have never authorized any sort of attacks from any of my colonies and the CM and WC will back that as well.

So the PCU's continued aggression towards me is completely uncalled for. I agree to let you get weapons from Spain and yet, now you won't let me provide the WC with weapons. If you continue to attack me, I will use any means necessary to defend myself.

Long statement about me.

I was told that Ultra would be utilizing B-3s from Jamaica to attack my carrier, using the same munitions that attacked me in the CR. In return, I set a trap for them and moved the carrier towards Jamaica to assault the factories. However, we never made it because we were attacked by the said B-3s. I am going to say they were from Jamaica, because they used the same munitions, as stated above. If you want to keep your so-called neutrality intact, I suggest you deliver them yourself, and not let WC pilots on Jamaica. The PCU has no men in Spain, and our tanks haven't been used in combat. Your planes are being used in conflict, by WC, not 500 miles away.

2. A change of orders doesn't change the truth. (I'd like to see the CR for his orders from Areetsa).
3. :/

It still doesn't mean that it's true. Its fine by me that you continue to wave this unproved message. Just don't expect me to back down and say that I am fighting you or lying to you. Now if you verify its authentisity, well that's another story. But until then I will defend what has happened at Jamaica and if you continue to agress I will defend myself.

But if it makes you any happier, I'll put guards outside of my facilities and airfields.

You know, the US once had this little war called: Korea. It had these little setbacks for our side called: Chinese. The Chinese had these little surprises called: Mig-17s. The Chinese got these little surprises from a little place called: Russia. Now, the US had two choices, kill the Chinese pilots or risk a war and attack the planes while they were still in Russia. Little problem, attacking them in Russia would cause a war with Russia... Needless to say the US was WISE and decided it had one too many foes already. Good thing our generals don't suffer the same emotional imbalances that plague you.

First Arguing Point from Ultra: I'm not the US, nor will I ever be. I don't adhere to their laws, which in some ways is a good thing. Once again, I am not trying to provoke conflict. I'm trying to INFORM everyone of some discrepancies.

Second Arguing Point: I'm not trying to deprive you of your "special" equipment, I'm only saying that they should not be flown directly out of their factories and used in combat, but rather flown to an allied AFB, unarmed (we won't fire on unarmed planes over friendly territory). They will be armed at that AFB, and then flown into combat.

For the record, UN air superiority over the peninsular was never a question. The Sabre and its' pilots far outclassed the opposing MiG-15's in 90% of all situations. Also, the MiG-17 did not become operational until October of 1952, so it played basically squat of a part in Korea.

Ah, bad word. Yes, I knew that. The MiG-15 was indeed the nemesis to the F-86. However, the two had strengths and weaknesses that pretty much canceled each other out and made them almost dead equal. It wasn't until the later versions of the Sabre came in that individual superiority was assured. It was the pilot at the controls that made a difference; that and the lead-computing gunsight...

Today, in the Western Confederation...

The MkII turret has been put into service, with about 15 units being produced already. It is much wider and lower than the last one, though it sacrifices nothing of firepower and control. In fact, it has expanded the crew accommodations, and given it a higher survivability with the low profile. One more change is the absence of the side-mounted heavy grenade launcher which was found to be too easily disrupted by small-arms fire. Still equipped with Iron Fist and ERA, it is more than a match for its opponents.

The UNC Air Force is happy to announce that after two weeks we have developed a new electronic warfare suite for our F27s. Also announced was the development of a more powerful turbofan to install in lieu of the Alaskan-design powerplant. With this news, the Air Force has authorized the full production run of 50 aircraft (with the option for 50 more, depending on the timeframe of the JAS-43). The 5 airframes that were used for static testing two weeks ago have been re-engined and has had the new hardware and software equipped for the defense suite. A top secret piece of technology was also devised for this, although due to its extreme complexity, it will take another few weeks to develop. The initiative is Project: Skugga Krigare. The first batch of newly trained pilots (all well experienced from flying either F-35s or JAS-39s) will be getting their new rides, at a rate of 2 per day, starting in a week.

The UNC requests examples of their previously mentioned near vertical ATGMs from our good friends in Russia for testing and evaluation, and also ask for the coding for attack programming involved.

According to the civilians, they were completely silent. In fact, they flew over a city, and only a handful of people happened to look up and spot them. They were flying very fast and completely silently. One of the people managed to snap a pic of it on his phone, but as it was night, and the craft did not have any lights turned on, all we can see it a black outline.

I think it's definitely worth looking into. One of the observers was a completely sane police officer, so we doubt this is a set up. About 30 people have reported the sightings so far.

The Russian Federation apologizes to the UNC for not sending off test samples of the joint ATGM project sooner. With that said, thirty units shall be shipped off as soon as possible. If you find the munition to be acceptable, the finalized schematics shall be handed over for the UNC to begin its own production line if it so chooses.

In other news, our fleet of BMPTs is being assessed for quality control. Seeing as though their aging chassis are feeling the strain of the elements and times, we will likely remove the weaponry components and whatever engine scraps we can muster and implement them on a much fresher set of tracks. We hope for a finalized design within a few weeks.

A similar program is being initiated for our serving Mi-28s. Although we only operate two squadrons of these rotary wing birds, we hope that this refreshment of the design should bring more public and private interests into account. If all goes well, the Union State hopes to have at least 72 new attack helicopters fresh off the assembly line by end-season.

Also, another squadron of Su-51s have entered service. This now brings the combined total to 96 active aircraft. The first two squadrons of revised MiG-67s have also been handed over. Due to the small nature and lack of intensive parts manufacturing [for the MiG-67], we hope to have half a squadron done every week; more or less, a plane a day. That is of course if we have the Assembly's go-ahead to spend money on these stop-gap planes. Regardless, the MiG-67s will be seeing extensive mixed training with other, larger birds like the Su-51s so full coordination in times of dire need for air dominance can occur.

In other news, 120 upgraded T-80s [fitted with ERA, newer secondary weaponry, etc.] have been sold off to Syria. An even greater number, including the possibility of T-90s, is being discussed to replace their aging T-55s, -62s, and -72s. If this large deal is given the okay, we will likely buy back a majority of the dated tanks so the resources can be recycled and kept in-check from being sold to terror cells. Plus, the balance of power must be kept so the nation of Israel can remain secure from severely lopsided technology. We have warned all of the Arab republics that attacks on Israel shall be in direct hostility with the Union State and all arms deals will be revoked [and with us likely keeping the money forked over]; something of a new stance.

I though that was the rumored T-95 or whatever. If I'm not mistaken, India has bought export models and there are a number in the Far East/Siberian district of Russia. So, I'll just work something around the puny numbers available.

A famed PCU political analyst commented on the lack of civilians in the area, but noticed that since the beginning of the war, flights departing are far outweighing the arrivals. We expected this, but not in such vast numbers.

Meanwhile, the first Mechanized Infantry unit to use IFV-1s and be supported by MT-3s has been deemed fit for combat.

Baja:
Not much happened, beyond an unknown number of WC reinforcements bolstering their front line, and a running air battle over the peninsula.

~40 assorted WC aircraft arrived to reinforce the existing contigent, which headed out to make life difficult for the defenders. They were met by a squadron of most displeased PCU fighters, who kept them busy while some CAS aircraft paid a visit to the foreign artillery positions. 7 MAF-1s were lost, along with 13 IF-2 Fulmars and 4 IF-3s. The WC misplaced 10 F-29s, 3 F-89s and one point five Blackfish. (Point five meaning the undercarriage collapsed on landing. Repairable, but it may be quicker to scrap it.)

And 6 PCU A-10s, I forgot those.


And in that teeny-tiny little ocean between the peninsula and the mainland: some Brazilian Su-51s engaged the friendly local PCU aircraft carrier's CAP, keeping it busy while a couple of the oh-so-wonderful Blackfish fired missiles at their host ship. Four missiles were shot down by CIWS, one jammed in the payload bay, and another blasted a small hole in the carrier's hull, well above the port waterline.

Today, in the Western Confederation...

Due to battlefield malfunctions in our B-1s and other allied aircraft, we are taking a closer look at our maintanence checklists and enforcement of procedures for maintanence crews. From now on, when the crew chief does the double-check, any step that is missed or checked off but not completed, the disciplinary action will be the forfeiture of one week's pay and possible demotion depending on severity of infraction. Men's lives might very well depend on the working condition of their equipment, no time to be slack.

Production continues on all types everywhere. The MkII has been delivered to forward units, especially to the "Iron Fist" Regiment. There are nearly 20 serving now.

I have decided that if all nations are OK with it, I will combat mod. However, I will have a few extra restrictions on when/what orders I will accept
1) I will be making a single CM once every two days
2) All orders are due THE NIGHT/DAY BEFORE the combat report, to give me 24 hours to analyze the plans and write the report. Hopefully this will reduce on the orders that I may miss, as well as increase quality.
3) Single FM only please! Also, please have the subject of the FM THE REGION OF FIGHTING. For example, Nick would likely say "Northwest, Gulf of Mexico Plans" or something like that. That also makes it easier to sort through the FMs, rather than leaving me sorting through many FMs to find things that pertain to a single region.
4) Please link me to all the creations being used in the day's attacks. Sometimes I had to go on memory last time, and I think that somewhat affected the outcome.

Once again, I'll need the nations involved to be OK with it before I actually do anything here.

If approved, would someone please make an up to date map of the fronts?

Today in the CDC, economic reforms have been passed to help grow boost our national GDP, lower foreign dependencies, and continue to stomp on unemployment. Measures to bolster the CDC steel industry have been taken, and several exploratory geological assessments have been commissioned to locate high yield coal mining facilities, to produce raw materials for steel production. Mining rights to the sites will be privatized and sold off to companies who can create more jobs and maximize efficiency and coal output. Many new standards have also been passed, however, to insure that this mining will have minimal environmental effects, safety of the mining operations, and protect the health and wellbeing of workers. Also, upon finding new sites, rights to build railroads will also be sold, linking the mining operations to foundries.
On an agricultural note, while water availability has increased 10-fold, Congress has passed a research grant to develop drought resistant crops, to further protect CDC agriculture, and to assist in the prevention of famine. Also included in this bill was an act to greatly reduce tax on gasoline used for agricultural equipment (excluding equipment used in tobacco production). We hope that this will help minimize the effect of gas prices on the cost of food.
In other news...
2 whopping capesize cargo freighters have been allocated and are being fitted with new cranes able to lift much heavier containers. While it has not been confirmed, an unnamed source has claimed that these cranes are able to lift heavy military equipment, namely assault hovercraft. It is being speculated that these vessels will have some connection to the rumored Operation Bad Will. Due to these allegations, the 2 ships have been relocated to an undisclosed location, and are fully covered.

With recent trends showing that there is a higher and higher need for a more mobile army. Our current IFV and cavalry scout do not meet our current needs. So we have tasked BAE to design the two on a similar platform. Our requirements for the IFV are the capabiity to fire guided AT weapons(we need to think proactively), bigger gun, and lighter, but strounger armour. The scout will need better optics, a lot stronger gun, and having better armour as well. We plan to replace our entire fleet of vehicles with this new almost universal unit.

Our tank designing process has hit some bumps and delays (just standard deviations in the testing process) and currently it is in the ruminant procurement stage. This will knock us back at least 2 months.

Finally, production of the last Falklands-Class Carrier has been completed. It will be named HMS Triumph. Currently it will be going through sea trials and shakedowns. The government paid for the carrier with the money that Cuba paid for our ex-frigates and destroyers.

Development of the new M2 series of combat rations has been completed, and it has gone into production. These lightweight meal kits will likely go into service with units participating in Operation: Bad Will, and will be delivered to all units already at the front. We hope these nutritional, filling, and decently tasting meals will help boost morale amongst out men and women in uniform, and many are already thoroughly sick of the Soviet "food" they've been eating for the past month.
Also, the BattleCom Integrated Defense Network has finally been completed. Comprising of secure internet, radio, AV, and satellite communications systems, it will serve to greatly improve encryption levels. While all current CDC military communications gear is compatible with the new system, slight modifications are necessary to bring everything up to speed. Ultimately, this network will give unit commanders from the squad level all the way up to strategic command a more thorough, secure, and faster sense of battlefield awareness. All vehicles, mobile command centers, and infantry units will begin to update their equipment ASAP, and we hope to have the entire military on the same network within several months. The completion of this network obviously marks a large breakthrough in the Modular Combat Uniform, which makes use of BattleCom equipment.
A trade mission with Brazil has been completed, and we will begin exporting large quantities of our nickel in exchange for for their M1 fuel cells.
Several Military reforms have been passed, mainly involving orginisation, but also a major one involving size. Our reserves have been downsized from about 1.3 million soldiers to about 150,000. We hope this improve the availability and thoroughness of training, and also allow more citizens to look for more permanent jobs in the labor market. We will also, however, greatly expand the size of our active duty contingent of our military from about 60,000 soldiers to about 150,000. In total, our military will include 300,000 vital soldiers, marines, sailors, and airmen. With a smaller force, we hope to increase proffesionalism, and focus our strategies and tactics on quality, rather then quantity.

Today, in the Western Confederation...

The jobs initiative program enacted quite awhile ago is now coming into full swing. Nickel, iron, and other metals, gold, silver, and other precious metals are being mined like nothing else. Thousands of jobs from geologists to topographers to earth mover manufacturers to construction workers have been created from this initiative. The business model, machinery (immaterial, that is), building contracts, mining grants, and land was sold to the highest bidder to make lots of cash for the WC. It made $90 Billion for the WC, and about $15 Billion annually for the buyer for the next 10 years, probably growing by $2 Billion annually.

Uranium is being mined, except a lot of it is turning up to be depleted, but only in Texas. This works out fine, since the A-11 will likely use these as tank killers. Two more nuclear power plants have undergone test reactions (classified areas for now, for obvious reasons).

Counseling sessions are still ongoing for some of the more dramatically affected persons of Houston. The psychological effects will not wear off as easily as the physical effects; which have vanished entirely in 98% of cases, and 100% are expected within a week.

Unfortunately, it has become necessary, once again, to look at our internal security measures with surfaced threats of the vengeful Alenia, whose last unprovoked attacks exacted a terrific human toll on our citizenry. While for PR purposes, the PCU was implicated in the attacks (though it was only hinted), we won't be so naive in the future; and someday we may have to divulge the truth.

Williams has assembled one of the largest private security forces in the WC, numbering 5,500 men. They have some pretty heavy stuff, including 10 APCs, mostly of some European make. They have gone to Idaho, where their services are most needed. They will be assisting the civil law enforcement there, and securing some of the trouble spots.

Civil engineering has moved in to continue reconstruction efforts on the lightly damaged infrastructure. Some of the good children of Idaho have actually gathered in small crowds to stare at these workers, many of them ethnic minorities that were apparently suppressed or otherwise looked down on in the strict social order of the PCU. It is believed that the children are drawn by some odd curiosity about these men. These men that it was said would kill them and eat them alive, according to what "Teacher says." It is sadly true that these children knew nothing of what really was and is outside the outrageous indoctrination that they were spoon-fed in school.

Development is starting on a Mach 9.5 capable SAM. It will be based on the RIM-161 Aegis system SAM, designated RIM-165. It will be insanely expensive, but necessary. Since it is able to track and destroy ICBMs, we have little doubt it will be able to track other things... >.>

Due the sheer number of fronts involved, there will be 7 mini-CRs that will be posted. This ensures that all orders are noted. I will start with the shortest front now.

3/21 Combat Report Part 1/7
Egypt- In what can be described as a retaliatory strike against Egypt, 4 WC B-3 bombers stationed in secret bases in Europe/ the Middle East dropped 120,000 lbs worth of Thermobaric and standard HE weapons on Egypt's highly touted solar farms. The Egyptians scrambled defense fighters to attempt to intercet, but they were unable to even determine the general trajectory that the bombers came in and left in. Thus, they stayed scrambled througout the night, but no further raids were conducted. The damage to the infant solar farm was extreme, due to the sensitive nature of the solar cells. Roughly 80% of the facility was destroyed by the FABs, while the remaining cells were experiencing technical issues due to damage to circuitry. Roughly 70% of the cells will never be able to be used again, due to the follow up with HE. Egyptian engineers estimate that the 20% largely undamaged parts of the plant will be able to resume energy collection in three days, while the heavily damaged-but repairable- 10% will take at least two weeks to resume prodution.

3/21 Combat Report Part 2/7
Gulf of Mexico- Overnight the PCU reinforced the severely damaged Ronald Reagan with several Ticonderogas and unnamed destroyer types (I am assuming Areleigh Burke). The Allies made their first move to finish him off starting at 6 AM, with the first crack at it being the Brazilians. Due to the heading of the carrier group, WC intelligence gathering gear detected the movement, and conveyed that information to the Brazilian strike group. Four Blackfish were the first ones to reach visual range, but were alarmed to see the entire fleet, which they were not prepared for, launching with only intentions of attacking the carrier. Nonetheless, roughly 50 F35s launched from a nearby Brazilian carrier joined in and fired the first shots (the Blackfish remained undetected). The less than super-stealthy F35s were detected fairly close to the strike force, and the task force reciprocated by launching MAF-3s and a torrent of SAMs. Simultaneously, much to the relief of the F-35s, the Brazilian fleet made its presence known, and immediately fired upon the PCU fleet. The PCU destroyers fired back, limiting the effectiveness of their AA fire. At this time, the Blackfish appeared to the PCU visually, but were unable to do so much about them due to the great naval engagement (mostly long range missile fire) and furious dogfight overhead. The Blackfish launched anti-shipping missiles at the Reagan, aiming for its propulsion systems. At least one missile made it through, hitting squarely in the stern. It should be noted that two blackfish were hunted down by vengeful MAF-3s at this time. With the carrier dead in the water, and flooding on lower decks (even more now than before), and with the escorts slowly being picked off, the PCU captain faced a terrible choice, abandon ship or continue fighting to the end. After receiving reports that the F-35s were being beaten, and the Brazilian fleet being damaged, he decided to stay the course. The Brazilians abandoned plans to board the carrier due to the few remaining escorts. After this tense battle the losses are as follows:
Brazil: 29 F35s shot down, with most pilots dead or POWs
2 Blackfish
Two destroyers hit, one with light damage, and the other with heavy after the exchange of missiles.
PCU: 2 Ticonderoga GMCs
2 Arleigh Burkes
8 MAF-1s
Reagan crippled.
While the Brazilians were licking their wounds from a bitter, and narrow, defeat, they passed their information on the PCU strength to their allies, including Cuba. PCU operators were on high alert for more air raids, while their fleet headed to their ally’s port in Mexico. They noticed a large wing of aircraft with hostile IFFs, but not closing at them. The air raid commander decided against firing at them, as overall SAM ammunition levels were low following many engagements, and roughly 1/3 of their carrier wing remained operable. They were, however, much more alarmed with Cuba’s “Wing 2” approached on a head on course to the carrier, and surface scanning radar detected a large Cuban fleet (comprised of many ex-British vessels). Unable to do more, the PCU prepared for the onslaught, being forced to fire off their remaining SAMs at the incoming missiles from wing 2. This threat was mostly finished off with CIWS, although a few leakers made it through, hitting another Arleigh Burke, rendering it usless. The crew abandoned ship as her 5 inch magazines went off. The fleet now only comprised of one Tico, 2 Arleigh Burkes, and the Reagan. The MAF-3s caught up with group 2, and promptly slaughtered the inferior Cuban aircraft, but many survived nonetheless due to the fighter’s running out of missiles and cannon. As they landed again, Group one reappeared, this time headed for the carrier head on- from the opposite direction. The escorts could not reposition, and with most of their missiles gone, they were nearly useless. A total of 12 Cuban missiles struck various targets, finishing off a Destroyer, crippling the Tico, and compromising the Reagan. At this time, the PCU abandoned ship, and were taken on by the surviving destroyer, which was barely able to escape. The CDC fleet closed in on the sinking carrier and attempted to save it, but to no avail. The battle for the Reagan was over.

Losses for round 2:
PCU-1 Tico
1 Arleigh Burke
Ronald Reagan

CDC
6 A37 Dragonflies
8 F15 Eagles
14 Dominators of varying types.

The last transmission from the Carrier came merely seconds before destruction. As the XO let the news to the Admiral that the next air wing was inbound, the Admiral said the following: "Then that's it. It's been an honor." The next few seconds were filled with explosions.

His family has been notified, and his State Funeral, though not worthy of being called a Funeral, due to the lack of body and the lack of civilians to visit, will be held in the Wolf's Den tonight. He has been posthumously awarded the Governor's Cross, adding to his previous one awarded merely a week beforehand, for heroic actions in the face of impossible odds. In addition, he has been promoted from Rear Admiral to Vice Admiral.

In the Pacific, both the HGS John Hood and the HGS Pacific launched a single flare into the night sky, and a missing man formation of MAF-2s were flown.

Unconfirmed reports of Farewell Apollo, a song from the 2000s, to be heard being played throughout numerous Pacific Union installations and ships after the ship's destruction, but once again, those reports were unconfirmed.

3/21 Combat Report Part 3/7
Eastern Front- Early today, the EC made a request to use ACU airspace (which the ACU said it would allow) for a routine transport flight from Florida to Illinois, which was promptly turned down due to the ACU’s declaration of Code Black alert status. The EC appeared to comply. The ACU scrambled F16s to verify, and were shocked when their lookdown radar detected a healthy number of C130s slightly inside ACU airspace (the C130s were flying very low). The F16s called upon F22s and F35s to assist, but curiously the F16s went off the air. Ground forces and defenses were alerted throughout the country. The F35s and F22s went of afterburner to the last known coordinates and their heading. They found a group of C130s over South Carolina, in the midst of dropping troops, they fired, but their fire was promptly returned by the EC escorts-F35s. The escorting F35s dueled the defending -35s and -22s, but were not expecting to hear reports of several other conflicts- simultaneous troop drops over North Carolina (which by this time had suffered some casualties from SAMs and AA, which the escorts could not destroy in time. While the escorts dueled, roughly 3000 of the planned 3500 troops made it to the ground, with the casualties coming from the downed C130s.
While the country was mobilizing, ACU air bases were paid a surprise visit by F-1 Blackfish and B-170 strategic bombers, which went undetected due to their superior stealth. These forces cluster bombed airfields that would be used for the ACU’s B2 bombers. Of course, with the entire country on Code Black, there were some casualties. Advanced SAM systems destroyed 3 of the Blackfish in the raid, while the B170s made a good showing and made it through unharmed.
At this time, ACU high command was in chaos attempting to fend off against the twin invasions and bombings, and were initially overwhelmed by a disturbing new development. Two EC armored divisions launched their own strikes into the ACU, with one each headed to regroup to the two group of paras. The ACU was prepared for this, and had committed 36 F69Es for a CAP/tank buster role. The committed aircraft split into two groups dedicated to attacking one division each with hit and run. Several were downed by SAMs and (by this time retreating) F35s, but were put to good use attacking EC MBTs. Simultaneously EC A10s swooped in and hunted down any armor they could find.
The invasion is off to a fairly good start, considering the minimal ground forces fielded by the ACU at this time.
Losses:
EC- 4 C130s
500 paratroopers
16 F35s
38 Armored vehicles
3 Blackfish
ACU
20 F16s
8 F35s
1 F22
1 airbase heavily bombed
Several SAM systems
Border guards.

3/21 Combat Report Part 4/7
Covert Missions, Electronic Warfare, “Specialist Attacks”
In the WC + her allies
WC cybersecurity staff are on slightly elevated alert after detecting several probing attempts to get into the WC’s internet service providers. The pings were brief and the staff decided against responding.
WC internal security teams are investigating into reports of possible taps and bugs near WC military installations.
During the morning hours, AA sites located throughout the WC and EC reported failures- security teams dispatched near a SAM site in the WC found the saboteurs- and promptly engaged in a fierce firefight by troops of a caliber that was far more than the security forces. However, the word got out, and further personnel were called out and surrounded a very small team of special forces. The forces killed themselves before allowing capture, but an examination of the bodies revealed them to be of Spanish origin. Security forces throughout the rest of the country were put on high alert, but for the time being news of the discovery has kept the remaining forces quiet.

Later that day…
PCU forces launched a myriad of ICBMs at the cities of Corpus Christi, Dallas, Denver, Miami, and Montgomery. These ICMBs impacted, and their load was revealed to be mustard gas as well as the H69 hormone (which I think is completely BS). The mustard gas dealt very high civilian casualties, with up to 10,000 civilians being killed, and up to 200,000 in all locations being affected. Once again, the H69 hormone was widely dispersed, and for the poor “double dippers” in Denver being affected again has prompted a very large suicide rate following the gas attacks. Total affected number ranges from an estimated 500,000 to 1 million in said cities.

These ICBM attacks were somewhat hindered by the WC's BMD capabilities.

Over the past month(s) the EC has neglected to report on our nation, so here it goes:

The final reconstruction project in Chicago, Illinois was completed over a month ago. The damage was done by the suicide bombings, and RPG fire from the conflict during the invasion, buildings in the reconstruction project were the Harold Washington Library, the Goodman Theater, the Sears Tower and the Trump International Tower.

Muhammad Williams, seeking refuge in Somalia with his arms dealing father, has gone off the radar, and talks with the Somalian Government(?) seem to be failing.

Gary, Indiana is being looked into by many manufacturing companies. The government hopes this will boost the economy of the region, and will bring down the unemployment rate, which happens to be the highest in the nation.

A minor problem has arisen in the EC. Protests, similar in nature to the ones of the Western Confederation, are being sparked in most major cities across the country. These protests a quite smaller, but are still impeding daily life in the city. The biggest threat is the opposition leader, a 9-11 truther and anti-New World Order group member has been spouting rumors such as:
The Western, Eastern and Southern confederations are plotting to take over the hemisphere and eventually create a NWO, and that all the political leaders, generals, and Commander-in-Chiefs are members of the Illuminati. They also claim EC forces destroyed Savannah, and "There's just no way hundreds HE explosives could destroy a small city!" We give them exhibit A: Portland, Oregon and Exhibit B: Numerous Korean towns.
-----
A State of Emergency has been issued and WC tactics are being used against the despicable g@y-bomb. Martial law is in effect in towns that were hit. To keep controversy to a minimum, all patients receiving aid hormones will be asked if they were formally g@y. Special counseling will be offered to those that need it.

Celebrations in the CDC today were cut short once news of the b0mbings in the Americas reached the Caribbean. Humanitarian groups in the area, along with the American and CDC Red Cr0sses began receiving large donations, even from families who had very little to begin with. There has been a large public outcry to end this war as quickly as possible, and a team has been assembled to best figure out how to best handle this situation. El Presidente gave yet another speech today; calling for people around the world to support those effected by this sinister attack, and has dispatched 5,000 soldiers from the military reserves to assist in the humanitarian effort, along with to aid in the long cleanup. All CDC citizens headed to this area are being issued military chemical warfare suits (we have many leftovers from the Cold War).

The PM said this,"This sort of heinous attacks is why we have recently ended all trade with the PCU and co. These sort of terrorist attacks are deplorable. But due to the recent signing of the Treaty of Oslo we cannot act as we will follow our word. We will be donating the WC money to help with the relief and rescue operations. Finally, Cuba's attempts at pressuring us into war will be completely ignored, we will not go back on our word."

@Ham
Alright just needed some clarification but its a bit fishy. How would you like it if Jamaica was pressured to allow the WC to launch aircraft? For now though we will not do anything, but anymore of this shady business will lead to the absolvation of the treaty.

Our military will go on high alert because of Spain's recent actions. Although our ships were already away from port, we will currently be mobilizing our fighter interceptor squadrons and air defense units. We would also like to inform the UNC and all of Europe to view Spain's actions in a negative light. We would also like to inform the UNC that another break in the treaty will lead to its absolvation.

Thanks to the Alenian scare last month, each citizen had some form of gas prevention or suit (while some very paranoid persons had their houses sealed up), and thankfully the death toll was not as high as it could have been. It appears as though our suspicions about the gas attack in Houston earlier was quite right, that the effects were more due to the steroids than the hormone.

Emergency procedures also swung into full gear, flawlessly, to stop the agents from contaminating the water supply and helping the survivors at triage centers. We are very thankful for the assistance of our allies, it is very touching at times like this.

Bottled water is being handed out, and dispersants are being put in the air to cause it to congeal and fall to the ground. While about 98% of the mustard gas has been destroyed in the US arsenal (see below) the countermeasures were thankfully kept in place. Povidone-iodine has been quickly applied to the cases needing it, and everyone in the areas are being urged to report to facilities regardless of symptoms, knowing that they take as much as 24 hours to be noticeable. Oxidizing and chlorination agents are being used/applied where needed. Thanks to the heroic efforts of the medical teams, we expect the further human toll to be minimal.

Considering no-one vetoed me using chlorine gas in the WC, methinks no.

Except for the fact that the last Mustard Gas stores that the PCU had will probably all be gone sometime this year, its destruction was started in 1990 and set to be completed in 2010-2011. Even if they stopped it, more than 3/4 of the gas would have been destroyed and it never would have been enough to deploy on a massed scale.

Due to the pressures of our antagonistic friends in the Balkans, emergency voting sessions were held amongst the population of the Union State even though both governments are in full agreement of unification. It seems decades of efforts have earned an 81% favor amongst both nations with a similar statistical voter turnout to those nations in the southwestern quadrant of the Black Sea. As it stands, both the people and states of Belarus and Russia are in favor of a unitary government.

With that in mind, a singular, bicameral legislative body will be founded in due respect to the need for a stronger bill-passing ability quite shortly. This initiative began in the early years of the Union, but it failed to actually gain momentum. A temporary unicameral body [2/3 Russian and 1/3 Belorussian] will be assembled until end-month to vote on emergency bills meant to protect the infant dual-nation.

Also, citizens will retain their respective passports while retaining dual citizenship. This is just to cut costs and we see no reason to issue a piece of paper that doesn't really add to the recognition of the unification. Plus, it adds less fuel to radical sectionalists that still believe in anti-globalization efforts.

All-in-all, we're quite happy with this eventful day regardless of the hastiness in which happened. Presently, the only other thing we can hope for is that fatal internal errors during the transition period will not cripple our abilities to act decisively.

Alaska has sent humanitarian aid to targeted cities in the WC to help counter the effect of the gasses and help treat infected civies. These men and women on the relief squad are unarmed except for tasers and fly in un-armed aircraft. Funds are also being raised to re-locate civilians who have lost their homes and jobs to the ICMB attacks. There's plenty of work in Alaska, if all else fails.

A statement released by the WCHC to the citizens of the WC:

"Today, we have seen the true nature of our enemy. While we have been called a terrorist nation, they have been the ones to bring terror to us. While they have claimed innocence and pointed to us as the dishonorable ones and hid behind their facade of moral superiority, it is they, rather, who have brought themselves down to the depths of moral despotism and shown that they have no honor or sense of morality. We made it clear to our enemy that we would never target civilians, that we would never lower ourselves to such levels.

"We, today, mourn our dead and show mercy to those who are dying, yet hoping they might live. We pray and give thanks to almighty God for our young men who have spared so many in their work behind the defensive systems.

"Yet let us not forget, yea let us not be slack in our present duty; to treat those that may yet survive to see the end of this nightmare.

"A message to our soldiers who have sacrificed so much to safeguard our freedoms; we are with you. Remember. Remember what has happened. Let it increase your resolve, let it steel your hearts, let the images you have seen and the faces of your families be always in your mind. Let it steel your purpose and let no doubt now remain as to why we are fighting this war.

"To the protesters in our streets; you have seen the true face of our enemy. Support him no longer. Cease your superlative unrest and go home. Or rather, to clean your conscience, volunteer to assist the medical workers to help blot out the stain that you have made on yourselves. It could be you next time."

To finalize the capture of Madagascar, the RAS will commence Operation Genesis, 2,000 soldiers will be added to the 5,700 soldiers already stationed on the island. The idea is to send small six man teams to every resistance hotspot and clear them out one house at a time. The sections of the island not in our control will be divided in two, one named romeo, one named juliet, our goal is to kill them both. citizens are asked to reveal any locations of resistance. We plan to have complete control of the island by the end of the month. As for Seychelles the beachhead has been secured, and a camp is being set up as we speak. Men on the island are trying to also learn English so they can communicate with thier Austrailian Comrades without a translator. Goodbye!

3/22 Combat Report Part 5/7
Baja, Mexico, and some of the Pacific shenanigans
The Brazilians were the first ones on the offensive today. At precisely 6:00 AM, cruise missiles struck many AA and SAM sites in the city of Mazatlan. The missile barrage lasted intermittently for half an hour. At 6:30 the Brazilians were done playing games. The Brazilian force consisted primarily of modified Cold War era tanks, spearheaded by 20 tanks of Cuban manufacture. As the tankers grimly expected to meet their demise by the HAT’s big guns, there was a most curious realization. Instead of PCU forces, they began sparring with an Egyptian division, recently sent to replace the PCU forces in the area. The Brazilians charged forward with the intention of surrounding the city. Their advance was nearly halted by Macro War Chariots firing long range missiles, but eventually, the armored column was able to overcome the Chariots (primarily by charging in between volleys [the chariots’ armament requires a long reload time]). Since I received very little in the way of defenses of Mazatlan, I assume that the Egyptians were in well fortified PCU made fortifications, which made life hard for the advancing Brazilians. Egyptian Hyperfalcons from the Baja peninsula were sent to engage Brazilian forces, and promptly found themselves in a major dogfight the Su-51s and F35s. Again, due to lack of numbers, I cannot give concrete estimates for damage, but I suppose that roughly ˝ of the hyperfalcons were outright destroyed, with 5 F35s lost, to 2 Fanfirs being damaged. While this air support was being taken care of, Brazillian A10s were sent to help the ground forces break through the line. With their Avenger cannon, most static defenses were taken care of, and the remaining AA posed little threat, although surviving SAMs did pluck 3 A10s from the sky.
Running in concert with the previous Brazilian attack, a similarly sized force attacked into the ACU territory, with the goal of eventually assisting the main push to Mazatlan, however, their attack was halted by an Armored Division that itself was preparing to attack. Due to the ACU’s lack of information on this specifc force, I can presume that Brazil made a small gain, with medium-to heavy tank losses courtesy of ACU attack helicopters. In kind, roughly 2,500 ACU troops were KIA/WIA after this engagement, a large number to be sure. Brazilian A10s again made their presence know, attacking ACU tanks. Their objective of linking up with the main force was not achieved.
Losses for both engagements:
Brazil: 150 Main Battle Tanks (80% of losses with the battle with the ACU)
5 F35s
7 A10s
Heavy infantry casualties
Egypt: 80% of Chariot forces destroyed
Light-moderate infantry casualties
Some Hyperfalcons
ACU: 15 Attack Helicopters
120 MBTs
2500 Infantry losses.

The WC also got up early to wage war, this time in the Pacific.
Before dawn, a remotely piloted F-1 Blackfish (rehabbed after taking damage), piloted by the backseater in a B3, invisibly headed to the PCU’s main fleet off of Mexico. Its goal: destroy the Hood. The stealth aircraft, absolutely laden with explosives, practically skimmed the wavetops going at a very high rate of speed towards the PCU fleet. The next part may be controversial, but keep in the mind the size and stealthiness of the Blackfish. PCU fleet operators, wary of attacks on their carrier, saw the threat initially at 1 mile out, even then, as a stroke of luck from a lookout with sharp eyes. Unable to get a lockon, all vessels in the fleet turned their CIWS on the Blackfish, which was laden with explosives, but just a tad too late. The craft, retaining its Mach 4 forward momentum despite taking light hits, connected with the broadside of the Hood. Virtually all decks were penetrated, and the shockwave was enough to throw the lucky victims on the fight deck into the sea. The carrier itself was not so lucky. Its keel broken, and taking on tonnes of water, went down a few hours later. The few aircraft that were on patrol were forced to fly back to the mainland PCU, shocked and mortified at the loss of their seafaring home. Please don’t rage at me for destroying a carrier in one attack, it was a cunning plan, and to keep the carrier alive, would frankly have been unrealistic given the circumstances.
The WC was not done with its torment of an axis fleet, however. Their next target was the ACU fleet. Their attack was thorough, and done in waves.
The first wave saw WC aircraft originating from Texas make their to the Pacific, on the hunt for the ACU fleet. Thanks to satellite assets, the search was not long. The stealthy WC aircraft carried the Low Observable Anti Shipping Missiles of UNC design, and their launch was mostly successful. ACU fleet sensors detected the initial drop of the LOASMs, but soon lost their contact. The fleet being on high alert, the kept their eyes and CIWS peeled for the missiles. Infared sensors detected the missiles at 3 miles out, closing in at Mach 3. Of the 4 missiles launched, two were destroyed by CIWS, with another two connecting with a destroyer each. One was hit in CIC and is pretty much dead in the water, while the other one is struggling on with the fleet.
Similarly, the WC followed up immediately after with 3 more waves of more missile strikes, this time utilizing Alaskan anti shipping missiles, which were less stealthy, but mighty fast and in greater quantity. The crippled destroyer was finished off by a missile penetrating the anti-missile fire, and another three were hit, along with 2 sunk. Overall though, the results were not too bad for the ACU given modern ship protection suites from missile strikes.
In a final strike, missiles were released from a very close range, although this did result in some F-89 losses from a very, very angry ACU fleet. The final salvo was quite damaging due to the short response time of the attack. In addition, B-3s used guided penetrators from a high altitude to strike at some of the remaining ships, they continued West.
Back on the ground, on the Baja peninsula, the WC was about to make a major push against Egypt. The WC started what was to be a 3 hour artillery barrage, but was soon mortified to see hundreds of Egyptian chariots that were already about to make a major attack. The artillery’s fire was shifted, and the WC ground forces, which were still mustering, scrambled to combat the Egyptians. Egyptian chariots were initially making headway due to the WC’s confusion, as well as using large amounts of smoke cover to shield their advance. However, their initiative did not last for long, as Cuban, WC, and Guatemalan forces that came under attack did not find the attack amusing. Knowing the Chariots weaknesses, the few WC tanks in the area, with their Iron Fist, took charge of the counterattack, using said technology to destroy nearly all of the missiles fired at them. The salvos of Cuban and WC tank fire cut down the Macro War Chariots, usually caught in between reloads, leaving hundreds smoldering. The Cubans took some losses due to lack of APS technology. A few Hyper War Chariots were dispatched to assist in the attack, but were destroyed largely due to CROWs .50 cal fire. Overall, the Egyptians, having just used most of their forces, were not able to put up much resistance, and were forced to fall back, leaving hundreds of dead comrades on the battlefield.
The WC, which committed only a few forces, lost very little in the slaughter, but reported 100 KIA/WIA
Cuban forces under WC command lost 40 tanks and AFVs, along with 300 KIA/WIA
Guatemalan forces took light-negligible losses.
Egyptian losses:
500 Macro War Chariots, with another 50 abandoned/ damaged
40 Hyper War Chariots
Unknown number of Infantry.

I'm not quite sure how one would define the language of "American" seeing as though it's a hodgepodge of tongues in all reality. It's true that our de facto language is English, but that doesn't account for the other majorly spoken languages [i.e. Spanish, Mandarin, etc.]. Might want to change that before you feed the nativists.

The PCU lol'd at the WC's underhanded tactic of destroying carriers. Vice Admiral Johnston was rescued from the waves by an LHD, where he promptly turned and saluted the Island as it slipped under the waves. He has been given command of the HGS Alexander Hamilton, a ship of the same class that has been hiding out under our protective naval sphere. Today has been declared a National Day of Mourning, and the Hamilton launched a flare as well as the Pacifica as they prepare for the eventual attacks on their own hulls.

Fleet Admiral Stevens was stoic as he simply righted the Pacifica's course, and headed with the Carrier Group for their next stop.

I find it quite funny that one plane could take down one carrier, but I'm not sad about losing the carrier. Underhanded may have been the wrong word. I think Childish was the one I was going for. You can't stand that you have neighbors, so you move to eliminate them as soon as possible. /applause.

And the Pacifica has more CIWS on it than all the other Carriers combined, as well as torpedo tubes installed on the corners of the carrier deck. It'd require an entire Task Force to even cause slight damage. And just saying "We're attacking the Pacifica" isn't enough. I think you should have the general locations of the enemy craft before you go about saying stuff like that.

For now all units are going into alert. Air defense units are being alerted and they are beginning to set up in strategic locations. The RAF is currently doing flybys 24 hours a day. We warn that any military aircraft violating British airspace or loitering outside of British airspace will be hailed to leave, and if they don't comply, they will be shot down.

3/22 Combat Report Part 6/7


Strike aircraft from the WC paid a visit to the rather busy air bases of the PCU in hopes of neutralizing any runways that may support heavy airframes; the Arketer in particular. Due to the high speeds of the F-89s, it was rather difficult to eliminate them from the ground in the form of the generalized SAM. Many temporary tarmacs were eliminated in the bombing run before any significant air resistance was met. However, PCU fighters and interceptors managed to down six F-89s in the air at the cost of fourteen Pacific birds. Still, reverting back to the main goal of this air raid, a majority of the F-89s that didn't displace their munitions upon temporary runways made their way to the meat of the PCU's airbase capability. Utilizing the dead of night, the F-89s managed to make irreparable damage at Fairchild AFB and Cold Lake and Namao before having to break up and escape scrambled boggies rather displeased 'bout the damage inflicted on their blacktops. Although two other direct targets were included (McChord Field and Comox), WC planes were intercepted by timely intelligence coordinated by PCU defense protocols. All-in-all, the raids left three airstrips needing at least one-point-five to two weeks of repairs before they are capable of at least launching medium-sized birds, eighteen temporary tarmacs seeking similar Band-Aid work, sixteen downed WC aircraft [destroyed or severely damaged, and twenty-four PCU aircraft along with several SAM sites are out of the game.

While the above was going on in the frenzy of the air, Allied ground forces were seeing similar scrambling. A number just short of 20,000 of troops with accommodating armour in the form of MBTs and IFVs numbering beyond the hundreds managed to press Pacific-Canadian boundaries some several miles. Due to the large nature of attacks concentrated in the area in [both the form of air and ground] however, not much territory was gained. Mishaps in the field caused by the language barrier between Cubans and Midwesterners left much to be desired in combat co-ordination. Still, Allied forces went mostly un-opposed for several for a few tens of miles due north-northwest [dictated by field intelligence showing this the easiest route to go] as caused by sleep and morale deprivation within the PCU. That is until concentrated and bloodthirsty Chinese forces being mobilized from Vancouver stopped the Allies dead in their tracks. The Chinese came from a week and some change's time of mobilization under dire secrecy. Advanced and outdated Chinese AFVs alike managed to re-direct their foes to eat their own heels as they back-tracked a few klicks back. Presently, casualties are mere guesstimates as the Chinamen press the enemy back south.

Going a bit south, the other half of the Chinese have linked up with Pacific-goers alongst the Washington Cascades and other regions not yet encountered. The heavy, future armour mixed in with the medium, outdated armour have done well to make their presence known as they wedge themselves through the region. Still, Allied artillery and CAS were authorized to attack strategic points in which would hinder Axis mobility efforts. This has bought some time and some checkpoints for straffing runs to rack in a few extra kills, but AAA attached to the armour scarred the birds to an extent to where they didn't return for seconds.

Even further south, barrages of EC artillery has done a number on PCU lines to the east. However, SOF observers from the latter military have been able to spot the rather far-away flashes and hone in targets for UCAVs to eliminated. It didn't take long to silence the guns a bit before "lighter" shelling picked up again. Taking to the air though, at least two dozen squadrons of EC strike craft lifted-off to delve deep into the PCU's SE region. From Allied lines to Cali, these birds forming a dense pack of minimalistic pings set off to make anything with a Pacific flag burn to the ground. At first, few aircraft were spotted or engaged until high-striking PCU retaliation was able to coordinate a decisive defense maneuver that left many EC planes with holes in them or wings missing. Essentially, some thirty-seven Allied planes were downed while the PCU sustained only half that number. The major reason for the latter being of course the recent Chinese bolstering. Aside from that, EC and WC troops routed away from Las Vegas and managed to create a rather nice stop-gap around it. Thus, the city shall bleed out and backed insurgencies won't get their share of killing.

Casualties:

Are you saying that something didn't crash in your fields?

Because if you are, then I apologize for assuming that your stories were supposed to make sense and be connected.

You don't get it.

I'm saying what if the 'UFO's" aren't actually UFOs. If they WERE actually UFOs, it would make sense that what is going on in the fields is a crash site for the UFO, what I am saying is, what if the sightings weren't even UFOs in the first place, and the "crash" that nobody saw, but assumed was a crash, was actually something else?

If you still dont get it, I'm done explaining to you.

Union State occupation forces in the Ukraine were unexpectedly engaged by a well-backed rebel force featuring mobile medium armour in the form of BTRs. This caught a patrol off-guard as they were questioning a group of rowdy adolescents. Only two men came out able to move all their limbs, but their minds were completely scrambled from the fast-pace engagement. Six of the other eight men are KIA and the other two are in critical condition. Presently, the Union State believes this to dictate the need for air coverage; something not included in the original writ. Of course flights would be limited to eliminating vehicular targets and targets involving dug-in insurgents. This is up in the air due to Ukrainian nationalists knowing this is a press for power over the region.

Anyhow, the first fully-armed, all-female division under the new federation has entered service with training honors ranking above many male-only units. This comes as to no surprise seeing as though aggressiveness is not longer found in XY population members alone, but rather a progressive boredom has been the XX population members that allows them to hack it quite well. We expect to have mixed divisions formed by end-year. Of course we're fully aware of natural ballets that will likely occur, but we hope professionalism will be retained in the form of nationalistic pride in military duty. If not, another victory shall be won in the fact that our male population won't be entirely bored.

That's what I'm talking about, the initial incident. The one where your guys helped get PCU special forces into the WC. All I ask is that it doesn't happen again because its you that wanted the treaty, so at least adhere to it.

News:

-...and then abruptly, the military packed up their things, and left, leaving the site open. Most of the news reporters were undecided whether to follow the convoy of ground vehicles steadily filing out, or take a good look at the site. Then several powerful explosions from the center of the site made the ground rock, causing all heads to turn to the source of the detonations. A huge fireball rose from above the treetops, birds squeaking indignantly at the noise and brightness of the explosions.

That made the news reporters make up their mind, and they all sprinted towards the blast, just like the military had hoped they would. There was nothing there, just a large, burning crater in the ground. Not even rubble...

Taking to the air though, at least two dozen squadrons of EC strike craft lifted-off to delve deep into the PCU's SE region. From Allied lines to Cali, these birds forming a dense pack of minimalistic pings set off to make anything with a Pacific flag burn to the ground. At first, few aircraft were spotted or engaged until high-striking PCU retaliation was able to coordinate a decisive defense maneuver that left many EC planes with holes in them or wings missing. Essentially, some thirty-seven Allied planes were downed while the PCU sustained only half that number. The major reason for the latter being of course the recent Chinese bolstering. Aside from that, EC and WC troops routed away from Las Vegas and managed to create a rather nice stop-gap around it. Thus, the city shall bleed out and backed insurgencies won't get their share of killing.

Casualties:
-You can count

I counted 19 squadrons across the whole battlefield, unless counting the A-10's, and a squadron is flight of 12-24 aircraft.

I think I'd like to make a statement to my opponents in this game: Stop telling the CM things that aren't true about your forces!

Nick:
You have only two ballistic missile submarines, congratulations, I'm sure you're as surprised as I was. Also, your last mustard gas stores were destroyed by the end of this year, where did you get enough to deploy it on such a massive scale?

Cliffe:
48% or so of your 1,300 chariots now rest on the bottom of the Pacific. In the first tragic attack you slathered on me, you lost around 300-350. That leaves you with 376-400. How on earth did you scrape enough together to throw (and promptly loose) another 500 of them at me? Also, I wasted your entire Hyperfalcon force the day after it got to the Baja (at a cost to myself), yet you had enough to try (and loose half) of them AGAIN going against Brazil?

The CM can't waste the time to research all of this stuff like I can, so it's not his fault nor does it reflect badly on him; but honestly, do we have to create an oversight board for you guys?

Quoting Nick Shelton
I find it quite funny that one plane could take down one carrier, but I'm not sad about losing the carrier. Underhanded may have been the wrong word. I think Childish was the one I was going for. You can't stand that you have neighbors, so you move to eliminate them as soon as possible. /applause.

Well, it wouldn't be the first time (BONZAI!!!). Let's just say that a 5 ton object pushing Mach 4 would have done terrific damage alone. I just put a few grenades in the pilot's bay, threw some candy into the weapons bay and called it good.

I am perfectly content to dwell with neighbors who will dwell with me. Not attack me and then run away and try to hide. Let's not forget the whole "Who attacked whom first" thing that you seem to just toss aside as a possible reason why I might want to take you down. You do remember Midway, right? Your planes? Yeah, I almost forgot too.

Oh, so you have yet ANOTHER magic carrier, eh? Where do you get all of these?
Quoting Thomas N
Actually, I think this attack rather vindicates the platform of the protesters, I mean, if you had ended the war like they wanted, the attack wouldn't have happened. So they weren't supporting the PCU, they were really trying to prevent such occurrences as this.

Now, the protesters get to join the real world where they realize that not everything goes their way and get over themselves. So, a lot of unrest was created for absolutely no reason.

The RAF is currently doing flybys 24 hours a day. We warn that any military aircraft violating British airspace or loitering outside of British airspace will be hailed to leave, and if they don't comply, they will be shot down. The navy will also be patrolling around and in out waters, any unauthorized vessels will be sunk.

I wish to point out that what you're proposing would be an act of war, with you as the aggressor: there's nothing in international law, that I know of, to say that loitering in international airspace is illegal or an act of war. That's part of why they call it "international". What next, patrolling other people's territory so they don't start a war with you?

I said military flights that loiter around my territory will be hailed, and asked to leave. So if I sent a bunch of bombers, and just flew around your country for a while, but stayed in international airspace, you wouldn't ask what my intentions are? Just look at how the US responds to TU-95 flights near US airspace, they get intercepted, hailed, warned, and asked to leave. I will tell them to leave, and if they get into my airspace, I'll shoot them down. And I can almost guarantee that no one would do anything different if the same situation arose. I worded it a bit wrong, but I really meant that their intentions would be asked, and if they get closer when they are already warned, they will be shot down.

3/27 Combat Report 7/7
The Pacific
This one will be short and sweet.
China staged a pre-dawn strike on Wake Island to start the day off with a bang. 10 Arketers used precision guided munitions (from 75,000 feet) to attack ammunition storage facilities on the island. Due to the altitude and speed of said bombers, most were at least 2 miles away from the island before the first bombs even hit. Aiming specifically for bomb storage facilities, the raid caused most of the stored bombs on the island’s magazine to detonate, leveling several storage facilities, as well as quite a few grounded fighters in the process. A few bombs were dropped on one of the runways, complicating a counterattack. Of course, the WC was not very happy about this raid, and launched their squadron of rapid reaction fighters, which then attempted to regroup with the 4 CAP aircraft already in the air, stuggling to climb within missile range. During this process, 20 MAF-2s launched from bases in China, which were lurking low, ambushed the aircraft, leaving 2 destroyed WC fighters off the bat. The MAF-2s’s didn’t stick around long, running low on fuel and needing to head back to base, and they escorted the Arketers back to base. The surviving WC fighters attempted to close within range, and forced an element of 4 MAF-2s to engage. In the ensuing dogfight, a MAF-2 was lost and the WC lost another aircraft, with another damaged.

The WC had some plans for an island of their own. Using carrier based patrol aircraft, both the WC and PCU had identified the opposing fleet, and both took time to prepare for the major engagement. The WC managed to call on a sortie headed to another Pacific Island to give support to the engagement. The PCU had more anti-air capability than the WC, but the WC did have a more modern fleet in general, so the engagement was rather even. Save for the fact that the PCU’s carrier was destroyed the previous day. Utilizing this advantage, the WC launched upwards of 40 fighters and bombers at the PCU fleet, which had no problem identifying the aircraft, as 3 potent radar jammers made their presence known. Radar burn through occurred at 40 miles out, although it also took some time for their radars to detect the large high-flying formation, Simultaneously, the WC and PCU fleets reached firing range, each side launching many missiles at each other. The stealth aircraft, in the confusion, flew overhead and dropped guided penetrators on the PCU fleet, although doing so ensured that 6 fighters were shot down as their weapon bays opened, ruining their stealthiess temporarily. WC subs joined in on the action, firing anti-shipping missiles of their own. At the end of the headed engagement, losses are as follows:
WC: 1 PTR
1 Battleship
1 Arleigh Burke
1 Cyclone vessel damaged
6 F89s
PCU: 1 Perry Frigates
2 Arleigh Burkes, with another damaged
1 Tico

The PCU launched aircraft shortly thereafter, but were not expecting a simultaneous attack on Midway. Qucikly overwhelmed, the PCU aircraft put up quite the fight but eventually, the 80 WC aircraft fought their way over midway, destroy AA sites, and whatever air cover there was, while the air defenses were being suppressed, Hueys and Rozzels from the fleet made their landing on the besieged island, dropping off 250 infantrymen. Currently a large firefight is ongoing, with the WC making a slow push to the islands control tower until naval support can be reached, although CAP has kept the PCU at bay.
Despite their best attempts, Midway is not entirely in WC hands yet, although they will likely win if more action is not taken by the PCU. It should be noted that both fleets are still there and surviving, although at the moment they have moved to standoff range.
The surviving ACU fleet, still rattled by yesterday’s numerous strikes against it, commenced firing on Brazilian forces in Mexico. Damage was relatively light, although some control towers and fuel dumps were destroyed in the process. The damage was light due to Brazillian anti-missile defences that they had set up beforehand.
Sorry for the late report.

I'm sorry to protest, but there's no way an Arketer can achieve such altitudes. That's higher than a U-2 Spyplane. The Arketer's wings have a low aspect ratio, which would enable them to go fast, but not nearly that high. The B-2, which has an even higher aspect ratio, can only fly at 50,000 feet. The Arketer's advantage will be it's speed, not it's altitude. It wouldn't change the CR, but it would definitely affect future CRs.

2. No Allied plane can land for fuel/ordinance/help in the Uzbekistani Airfields, nor can the PCU base bombers out of China.
3. All trade with the Allied powers will end starting at 12:01 AM on March 24th, 2037. It will immediately resume when the Great War of 2037 comes to a halt.

It was a couple months later, after I'd developed the B-1, around September, that I sent 6 of them to utterly destroy Cliffe's air force that he sent to Ham's aid. It was rather successful.

On a more personal level, why did you choose Vietnam, which has very little modern military capacity, and then decide to go to war with your amazingly inflated stats (yes, I saw that). Also, you will undoubtedly be decimated by the rather ruthless Allies, or you will at least be the target of Ultra & company in the future.

3/25 Combat Report Part 1/5
This CR was made incredibly short by allies both giving mass retreat orders. Egypians retreated on Baja trying to get behind PCU lines, only to find the PCU retreating to California. The WC and 21,000 men and numerous vehicles surged unto the gap, while their air power (dedicated mostly to CAP) was not really utilized during the day. However, due to the mass exodus and very little forces remaining (and light defenses) the WC made significant progress, about 60 miles worth of driving down the roads, with aforementioned heavy CAS dealing with any stragglers. Casualties light to minimal on Baja. The only big losses for either side was a carpet bombing attack by PCU 52s on the WC advance, which managed to destroy many vehicles. WC aircraft scrambled to be pounced upon by MAF-2s. 2 B52s lost, to 2 F89s.
The ACU had this to say about their plans “Pacific fleets will lay down fire on the WC Baja with aircraft flying sorties on watch for low and high flying stealth bombers/fighters. (CM note- this did help damage the WC's formations, and slowed the advance slightly).

Armored units moving against Brazilians with 48 F-69's as cover and 24 A-10's flying CAS.

An AC-130 will attack WC lines in Texas.

Armored units being moved to reinforce the border.

Southern boarder being reinforced with armor and being watched.”
And so they did, but Brazil had their own plans


- At 5:50 AM a hourlong Artillery and Cruise Missile barrage aimed at ACU SAM and AA along with armor buildups and artillery batteries spotted by satellite

- At 7:00 an Armored Division in the east will push the ACU advances back to the pre-war border and hold it.

- When that advance starts, 3 squadrons of F-33s and 4 of Su-51 and 3 of F-35s are to take off and assist the advancing troops. F-35s are to shoot down any Attack copters they see. Also, 40 Jet-Heli hybrids of Jake's design are to assist the advancing troops and destroy all tanks they see.

The cruise missiles were somewhat effective with some being shot down by ACU BMD weapons. The air war was clearly a mess, with the advantage going to the ACU in terms of numbers. However, the Su-51s did do a decent job of clearing the skies enough so that the F35s could engage the A10s. Losses moderate for fighters of both sides, with more damage being inflicted to the CAS aircraft. The ground war was slower than Brikkr hoped, and even with his tanks having Iron Fist, the ACU armor in well defended positions caused their attack to falter, to an extent. They still have initave, but are still some distance from the border.
Brazil also launched attacks against the PCU in Eastern Mexico once again, using shock infantry and armor to good effect, despite the HAT-1s doing a very good job in the role they were designed for: defense. Typically to even be damaged the Brazilians needed a lucky shot from under a mile. The PCU used similar missile-spam techniques as China to defeat the APS and were able to engage the Brazilians from long range. However, the relative unavailability of the type as well as their cumbersome natured prevented any serious PCU counterattacks. However, lines are barely shifted from yesterday.
The Egyptians counterattacked at Mazatlan, but their already exhausted forces were unable to overcome the death-grip of Brazilian forces around the city. Losses moderate for the Brazilians, with heavy losses for the besieged Egyptians, the lack of air support is starting to hurt them badly.

For two, you happen to be right next to Ham and his Spanish dominions, and he'd love a chance to get involved without Jolly Old England getting up in his business about overseas adventures. For three, and this is the important one, what do you think you'll gain from it? Do you really think Ultra would trust you with any military equipment more advanced than a bow and arrow in thanks for your "help"? Cliffe and Finn both displayed similar behaviour when they first joined, and they're, ahem, hardly the poster children for picking a side and sticking with it.


You should also dial down the imperialism about seven clicks. I don't know about anyone else, but if I were Tom, I'd be mobilizing to protect the poor helpless Belgians from you right about now.

Bravo, well put on all accounts, and correct.

A message to France: while you are new to group know this: Europeans mostly want to keep the peace, especially on our own continent. The UNC has in the past had to threaten to take peacekeeping measures (mostly diplomatic) to prevent European wars. We do promote expansion, but through diplomatic channels, rather than by force (although I will admit I have used some shows of force in the past too). However, you appear to be ready to invade your closest allies, that speak your language even! We cannot allow this to happen. The UNC will be monitoring your situation, and if push comes to shove the UNC stands ready.


Onto UNC news,
The two Allegiance Destryers that have been building for more than a month have been launched, and are preparing for their sea trials. Our Type-2 GMC has also been launched in today's ceremony.

Our first two Squadrons of F-27s are coming online at this time.

The UNC seeks to repair our relation between Byzantium. We invite them to come to the UNC for a special and exclusive military exercise.

Also, the Joint UNC-BU-Russian exercise that started last Monday has concluded at this time, increase said nation's ability to wage war together, and increased proficiency in fighting wars as well.

I should speak up on my own behalf here for what things some have directed toward me and pretended to speak for me.

I intend no harm to those who intend me none. Historically, (though some would disagree most viciously) I have not attacked anyone who didn't attack me first. I have supported a few allies, but only if I thought the cause warranted it and the benefits were ample.

The only countries I attack without reason are non-player nations; and I usually have a reason for that too, however ficticious.

I do not, contrary to popular opinion, attack 'everyone' whom I consider to be a threat. I might factor that in amongst my other motives, but I have never flown off the handle at someone because I thought that eventually, they might attack me.

For the PCU (because I know everyone else is just waiting to jump in and say something, but they will only say the same old things as they conveniently forget I was attacked first. You just watch.) I did believe that they would be too great a threat in the future given their complete willingness to commit acts of war without warning or declaration, with the definite attempt to cover it up. No fewer than three times did they mobilize their military against me without cause, while I did nothing but attempt to pacify.

I never specified what they were doing, and even if I had, it wouldn't be invading Belgium.


Quoting CherokeeKly . Attack?
Watch out Belgium, French units are currently in bulk on the French-Belgium border. The Germans should not be alarmed, as <b> the French will only be attacking Belgium and Luwembourg, nothing else.</b>


I love the smell of contradictions in the morning (afternoon rather).

A quick warning to the "Axis." Due to the deteriorating situation in Europe, I suggest you tell your new buddy CherokeeKly to 1) Not join your side and 2) not invade either, because then I would be forced to attack, and thus resign my post as CM.

CherokeeKly may actually be referring to me, the Eastern Confederation. He did mention something about taking the side of the Eastern Alliance, which I believe he mistakenly call me.
The Eastern Confederation also believes the French may need to tone it down a little.

The Union State is greatly distressed by the new French regime. Our once mutual defense partner is now a belligerent stated twisted by the hellacious desire to make its mark through conquest. With that in mind, the Federation is more than willing to test its amphibious and land-based capacities in a rather rapid frisk of realm stabilization. In other words, any military activities conducted by France will be closely monitored by the Russian Federation and its recent states within Belarus.

Awe is right. I'll pull back.

A fairly apt choice.

Greater Alenia would make a few of the highly unsubtle threats that seem to be so popular now, but we're quite busy with... other things.

And we also happen to not have the capability to project force in a fashion that won't get people all riled up at us about our covert assault tactics.

Been with family the entire day (which really limits the amount of time that I can sulk in my room). Tonight might be even more limited in terms of CR if you want to at least know whats going on. Likely just troop losses and territory gains/losses. Even then, I'll need another hour or so before I can start.

Will only attack if opposing country is:

...

1: Hurting Civilians

What not:

...

2: Will only attack if provoked

...

3: And will not hurt civies unless deemed nessecary.

1: Congratulations, you're now at war with Nick, you're now at war with Ultra, you're now at war with Brendan, and you're now at war with me.

2: That's contradictory with all the others.

3: That would require you to go to war with yourself.

-----

Over in Alenia: we're happy that we didn't remember to de-mobilize the army, since we're now in two extra wars all at once. This promises to be amusing.

Also, the OVB is totally thrilled at all the practice it's about to get.

And: the interceptor project is within a hair of completion.

And: the SA/AA missile project is within a fur coat of completion.

And: the steath car has had a few setbacks.

And: the Soyuz-from-underground-silo project is going along well enough, we suppose.

And: the "steal money from other people's bank vaults" project may or may not falter, depending on events.

And: we've already started production of solid fuel rocket boosters for our interceptors, and the Soyuz factory has been placed on a temporary hold until we use up the ones we've got in storage.

Today in China:
-Unsketchiness continues in the West.
-Project: Sovereign, Project: Unlimited Bacon, and Project: Pygmy Owl move along nicely. No, you may not know what they are.
-Production of new stuff goes at normal paces.
-Economic development in Indonesia is slow but steady. Maybe we'll set it free one day, to frolic with it's other NPC friends.
-Tibetan rebels more or less defeated.
-Our expeditionary force in the Pacific Union seems to be having trouble reporting it's shenanigans. In fact, the whole war has become an information black hole in the past few days.
-France is thoroughly discouraged from killing civilians for the lulz. We can still slap wrists halfway across the world.

Today, in the Western Confederation...

With the production numbers coming in, the WC now has 10 more B-3s and 15 more F-89s aside from the 15 B-3s produced (total; domestic), and the 15 more F-89s produced domestically. These have been issued to the necessary air forces. Also, the domestically produced F-1 Blackfish has reached 20, though is temporarily on hold (Produced for Alaska, to fill orders, we're 'testing' them for the customers). 20 F-29s have taken to the air as well.

Also, to date, 50 M90 MkIIs have been built, as well as 35 M80 'Air Cleaners.'

Humanitarian efforts continue. We (and our allies & friends) have saved so many lives, it staggers one. Suspicions are confirmed about the H69 drug as being more hype than substance. It does have some unpleasant side effects--dizziness, disorientation, incoherence--but nothing more serious; and certainly not fatal. These patients are given two aspirin and told to go home; sedatives only if necessary. Testosterone and estrogen in severe cases, but most of these are psychological and brought on by the reports from Texas.

Mayhap thou doth not understand: said interceptor, as an interceptor, has, shall we say, limited range. It is not intended for overseas adventures; rather, it is intended to intercept foreign adventurers and blast them out of the sky before they cross the border.
To be able to shoot something down, one must first detect it. If it travels faster than any other aircraft in existence, and carries a missile with an airspeed that is, frankly, obscene, your chances of doing so are rather remote.

Congress has decided to increase federal school funding by several billion dollars, and has also passed a bill which creates much higher standards (particularly in math, science, and new business classes). Teachers will have a much higher responsibility over their students' education, and underperforming teachers will face investigation and possible firing. El Presidente has stressed how crucial it is to education standards; however he also warned the Congress of making the same mistakes the US did. Also, funding has been allocated to build more schools in low income areas, such as in parts of Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
Also, recent geological surveys have shown discovered many coal-rich areas in the country, and rights to build mines and railroads are being sold now. These mines will greatly contribute to the steel industry in the CDC, while creating (safe) jobs for the people. Also, any companies that are able to build High Speed Rail systems to and from the mines will receive a significant price reduction in the price of the land. Mines are expected to be fully operational within several months.

ICBMs travel faster than any other aircraft, and a LOT further out than yours could. We've got radar AND defenses against those (the RIM-161 SAM). I don't know of any aircraft that could make it from Russia to the US in 30 minutes, do you?
