The Pacific Union, on behalf of the Republic of America, would like to purchase a port in Malta, if it is currently possessed. If Malta is not available, Sicily would do. And we here in the PCU do have enough funds to buy a port, with our economy currently shooting up.

Yes, Malta is under MU control and is in a prime location for trade all around the Mediterranean. What type of port would you be interested in purchasing? And of what size? For the location, I would suggest a large commercial port with a 1.00 square mile size, but that's just a suggestion.


Let's go with both military and commercial port. 2.00 miles. How much would that cost? With Seattle and Portland, both major production, transport, and shipping powers, I'm sure I could aford.

Congratulations! Your countryís new ports for military and commercial purposes are located in Malta. These portsí size of 2.00 square miles will consist of an electric fence perimeter, 6 housing unit(s), 8 loading crane(s), 2 infirmaries, 8 repair building(s), 2 dry-docks, and a direct route by train and truck to the nearest MU trade Management Facility for dispersion of the goods to their final destinations. The military port will have a capacity for six destroyers and up to eight other small craft (around the size of the U-415 MPNS). The commercial port will have enough docking space and repair facilities to house/maintain up to 12 trading vessels.

These ports combined will cost 6.1 million USD. This money can be transferred or shipped to the MU by any means. The payment must be delivered 24 hours before your use of this port. Your port will be fully prepared for your arrival in ten days.


We'll transfer the funds by wire to you, immediately. As for the port, would it be possible to eventually expand it if it grows?

If it does in fact become an especially effecieint trading hub for your country, the port will be able to expand. This expansion will also need to be paid for and can only reach a maximum size of 7 square miles. We don't want to lose too much of our coastal ports, we still trade from them too.

Another option would be to eventually purchase additional port areas nearby or in other strategic location, as this would be cheaper than to expand aport larger and larger. But again the options are entirely up to you.


Indeed, we'll see how things go. How much would it cost to add in an airstrip in?

Quoting Jeffery Smith
An airstrip would cost an additional 1 million USD. This airstrip would take a month or two to complete and would require limitations to its us. Unless you are involved in conflict with any of our non-allies, you may not base combat aircraft at the airstrip. The Malenco Union has the right to use the airstrip if necessary and can remove it from your territory if it is decided by us that it is not being used in the right way. But just follow the rules, get along with the our allies, pay the extra million and it's all set.


Agreed. Would using it as a stop point for tranport of military things be against the rules? The main use would be for air cargo, though, like getting supplies to places fast.

For refueling and repairs? Of course, that would be a fine reason for military aircraft to land there. We know accidents happen and if this airstrip is the nearest one to your aircraft, then it should be used accordingly.


Alright, now all you need to do is get it ready and we'll move right on in.

This is a great idea in theory; however, given the amount of countries and unions interested in purchase is quite dangerous. Having so many separate powers in one centralized area, in this case the MU, may lead to some interesting conflicts. For example, if one nation is at war with another that also has rights to a port charter in the MU, then the latter nation may decide to mobilize their naval forces into the first nation's chartered port. Thus, leaving your beforehand land in ruins without necessity.

This portís size of 0.75 square miles will consist of an electric fence perimeter, 3 housing unit(s), 4 loading crane(s), an infirmary, 4 repair building(s), a dry-dock, and a direct route by train and truck to the nearest MU trade Management Facility for dispersion of the goods to their final destinations. This port will have a capacity for four destroyers and up to six other small craft (around the size of the U-415 MPNS).

This port will cost an equivalent of 3.7 million USD. This can be payable in any monetary unit from gold to a local currency. Payment must be shipped to the MU 24 hours before your use of the port begins. Your port will be ready for arrival of your vessels and crew in four days.

I was just wondering what is the state of the construction on my port?

Hm... how prosperous would a port on Sardinia be?

Sardinia does not have any available ports for purchase, I'm sorry. Perhaps a different region of the MU may interest you?

How about La Coruna, Spain? Or perhaps Brest, France?

Both are available. Which would you prefer, one or both? And what type(s) of ports would you like to order?

I'll take La Coruna, and have it be a natural resources port. Thanx!

Congratulations! Your countryís new port for natural resource trade purpose is located in La Coruna in former Spain. This portís size of 0.80 square miles will consist of an electric fence perimeter, 2 housing unit(s), 3 loading crane(s), an infirmary, 3 repair building(s), a dry-dock, and a direct route by train and truck to the nearest MU trade Management Facility for dispersion of the goods to their final destinations. This port will have enough docking space and repair facilities to house/maintain up to 5 large resource trading vessels.

The cost for this port will be 3.1 million USD. This can be payable by any means, but must be paid within 24 hours ahead of your use of the port. Any additions/expansions to your port will have additional costs. The MU Port Authority has the right to revoke port use if any misconduct or unwanted activities occur.

Thank you very much, Mr. Smith. The money will be wired to you immediately, and men will move in to accommodate the facility as soon as you give the green light.

Hmm.... I might be interested in building a port in northern Morocco. What do you have in mind for pricing for a 1 mile commercial/military port?

Quoting Jeffery Smith
The cost would be 4.2 million USD for a military port of that size. Northern Morocco would definitely expand your military reach to the far side of Africa.

Would I be allowed to station fighter planes in my port? I will accept this offer if I can station 12 Su-51s there.

Yes, you will be allowed to station combat aircraft at your port.

Very Good. I will send the cash as soon as possible.

I would like to buy a Port for storing equipment and vehicles, incase of assistance needed in Europe or elsewhere. Location is not important, if this is permissible all I'll need to know is how much would this cost?

Lets see. I might buy one, but I want somewhere with decent proximity to my land area, whats the furthest north and east port available?

France would be the farthest NE. The MU mainly controls SE Europe and the SSW the NE.

what port in France my I have?

No clue. I'm in no way affiliated with this matter; I just threw that out there to grant you an idea of how far north you may go.
