Quoting Field Marshal Cliffe Additional companies have began producing the Abrams
I don't think you can produce or use vehicles that haven't been actually made in LEGO, bought from another member of the group, or taken from a territory that was gained.



Quoting Awesome-o-saurus The Not-So-Great
Also, though the Abrams is a beast tank today, it's 55 years old in 2035. Hardly a match for our Shasta MBTs of HAT-1 Rainiers.
Only the first model of the Abrams is 55 years old, there's been two updated/upgraded version since then.
Still, the Abrams model currently inuse may not put up the greatest of a fight, but when upgraded correctly the Abrams would still be a major contender of battlefield armor well into 2035.



Anywho, I think the effectivness of combat vehicles/aircraft against other combat vehicles/aircraft should be judged by the MOC's quality, size and reasonability of its description.

Jeffrey, PLEASE keep making sure no one makes any claims in the war. They are extremely unfair, and I think we should make it an official rule that no one may post information about the events in a conflict but the conflict moderator, which would be you.

We can, however, give orders to our troops and create strategies.

Space-borne lasers are ridiculous seeing as though the amplified light would have to breach the ozone layer followed en suite by the remaining atmosphere. So, by time the actual beam reached ground it would be discharged and cooled; thus, useless. However, airborne and seaborne laser systems would prove quite more effective seeing as though they are exact with the ground and would have to prevail a lesser amount of geographic and environmental obstacles. Still, they would take up the entire craft's interior or pretty close to it.

Anyhow, Project: Alkaline has made some progress as of late yesterday. The powerplants have been finished and the beginning work for the nose and forward body has begun. Even so, the actual work will come across quite slow.

In the SSW's interior government, an order for tax-reduction has ensued to make up for all of the war efforts set out by the SSW military. This will not mean that taxes will completely stop and our government will not receive the needed money, but instead grocery taxes will cease for the remainder of the year and fuel expenses will be halved. This should bring some favor and hope back into the growing SSW system.

In other news, the SSW has decided to trek a large amount of resources to Argentina to commence on the construction of an offshore naval-intercept station. This station will actually be a series of checkpoints running of the tip of Argentina that will be safeguarded by the SSW Coast Guard and Navy in the best regards of commerce and transportation protection; and in wartime, the intercepting of the said goods and services. A similar project will start in South Africa early next/late this year.

If that's the case, planes mounted with lasers could easily intercept the missile during re-entry. In any case I would imagine one's approach would be set on the said person's opinion. I'd much prefer and effective ground-oriented system over one in space that way I wouldn't have to let things run on chance.

With Nova Scotia's Air Force directly at my command, the order has been given for them to help the Luftwaffe wipe out the Texan and PCU Air Forces and provide ground support. Also, Egyptian nuclear submarines will launch their ballistic missiles at PCU and Texan troops on the front lines in one minute. The missiles will be covered by sea, and land based AA guns, missiles, and lasers, as well as a few aircraft.

I'm just giving orders now, and I'll wait until Jeffrey is ready to moderate. Take your time, buddy. I'm in no hurry ;-)

In case of defense, the SSW will be setting limits to how far each nation may enter into or around SSW waters. A line will be drawn some 22-31 miles around the coasts of the SAP so that, if attacked, the SSW will have enough time to react accordingly. As said before, the Panama Canal is closed to any nation involved in the EUSA conflict due to security purposes. A similar line will be drawn because of the said reason and will stretch 28 miles on all sides of Panama. Any foreign ship caught in this area will either be destroyed or neutralized in some manner with a declaration of war possibly coming in closely.

In other news, Mississippi has taken the SSW inciative and is greatly considering joining the SAP. However, the pro-nationalist party in office are objecting. No blame can be set on them seeing as though many citizens throughout America share the same concesus. Still, hopes are high.

Yay. Very good. Well, at least on the Eastern front. I shall now give more orders.

Just remember, Jeffrey, that the Egyptian(NOT Prussian) Navy is not at all far from their destination. Heir ports are in Maine, Connecticut and Virgina. Just letting you know.

The Egyptian Navy's sub-launched missiles have also been fired by now. I will await the results. I must also remind you that they are covered by missiles and lasers based on land and sea.

I also wish to hear of the status of the air war. If you could tell me how that's going, I will be able to give more orders.

The Horten Brother's development on their latest flying wing will proceed once more now that I am home. I have high expectations of the project.

Work on new artillery will also soon begin. Development is occurring in Indiana at the moment, and once completed the guns will immediately be shipped out to the front lines.

It would also be great if you would give me some tips as to how to stop the enemy from advancing on the western front. I am unsure of how my forces are incapable of holding their lines.

Since the MUs annexation of Croatia several months ago, its citizens have been feeling the effects of the kinds hand of the MU reaching out to their impoverished communities and helping the Croatians rise up on their feet again. Rumor has it that Bosnia & Herzegovina have (have? has?) been wishing to join the MU and receive such benefits.

The MU has no official comment on this, as it has not yet received a formal letter from the Bosnian government about this rumor. Once we receive more word on the matter, we will be sure to inform everyone about it. The MU would be happy to allow Bosnia & Herzegovina to join our country, but we will not inquire to them about it as it may come across as insulting to them if these rumors are not true.

A note on the air war: HAT-1's don't have missile pods on their turrets for nothing.

Also, the Horten brothers died in 1994 and 1996, with no children to my knowledge. How could they be back from the dead (Egyptian magic?)? Unless these Horten brothers just share the name and happen to be aircraft enthusiasts too...

And note how we have a great many number of tanks. There's a tactic called Blitzkreig, which I'm sure you're familiar with. It's hard for infantry to hold the line against a large number of tanks. Better to retreat and prepare adequate defences than to die openly fighting armored vehicle 10 times your own size.

As for the airborne troops dropped into New York, they have yet to reach the outskirts of NYC due to the high concentration of Prussian troops in the area. They have secured several towns, though, and two municipal airfields that are under heavy guard by the airborne troops to prevent their recapture.


tis very true. And you are right, we have 2 municipal airfields, but 3 other small airstrips. dont worry about them, they don't play as much of a role, and are in the immediate area of the main group of airfields. And we have stopped just outside NYC area. Good moderating my friend! how shall I contact you for orders?

Similar to the actions taken by the SSW, Scotland will be putting out a no-shipping zone approximately 20 miles off of the Maryland coast and parts of Delaware, including Cape May. This means that any ship that is not currently under the authority of an ally of Scotland, will be boarded or neutralized (by Scotland's Carrier Battle Group) as soon as it is spotted and identified in the no-shipping zone. This action is taken strictly for the defense of Maryland and its inhabitants/military forces.

I thought they would be useful because they are much more heavily armored because they have no turret and they have much larger guns. Besides, the King Jagdtiger's engine allows it to be just as maneuverable and almost as fast as a main battle tank.

Your laser and missile systems would not be in close enough proximity to the enemy forces or in substantial amounts to be able to protect all of your ballistic missiles from Texas' and the PCU's ground based anti-aircraft/missile systems around their forces. Now, granted, the neutralized ballistic missiles might create massive mid-air explosions, raining shrapnel all over the area and creating a shockwave, but neither of these would do substantial damage to any ground forces in the area, other than wounds to exposed infantry. And I'm not saying no ballistic missile will get past your enemies' defenses.

Heavy armor doesn't count for much once militaries began incorporating angular thickness, ceramic-composite armour, and ERA. In notion of large caliber guns, munitions can make up for smaller sizes. Plus, with larger weapons you have larger ammunition which may be cumbersome in transportation which reduces how many a unit can carry. Also, if you have a tank destroyer that can travel just as or almost as fast as your MBT, then you have a problem. Tank destroyers are meant to be heavy scouts to intercept armour (therefore they were replaced by light munitions such as the TOW and Javelin); thus, they are sent ahead of the MBTs. You best amp up your MBT's speed.

I know not all ballistic missiles will make it to the target- I'm just making sure as many of them do as possible. Most of the cruise missiles that were launched explode in mid-air, scattering tons of smaller explosives with shaped-charges for taking out vehicles. The few others launched contain normal shrapnel for infantry.

I will also send you cluster bombs for the Tu-225s to remove enemy infantry. hehehe.

The Navy fleet consists of two Admiral Kuznetsov class aircraft carriers. There are 12 Su-51s, 5 Tu-225Ns, and 18 Ka-63s on each. The Tu-225s are armed with torpedoes along the centerline hardpoint, and rockets and anti-tank missiles along the wings. For anti-ship runs, I'd suggest low level strafing of enemy ships. If you come across any large ships, the Su-51's bombing system is well able to accurately put a 2,000lb bomb into the bridge.

The fleet also contains one battleship, four escort carriers (with helicopters), three destroyers, six Submarines, and five PT boats.

I would suggest using Ka-53s and Ka-50s to scout out enemy divisions, as they are fast, manouverable, and fairly well armed.

Yes, if you could counteract Jack's CAS navy and air it'd be very nice. Placing units under our command would be even greater if you are not going to be present often.


Yea. More speciffically Shelton and I, as we're on the most of RA forces (don't forget, we're still under Alaska rule).

As is seems my Navy is sailing through enemy-infested waters, I'm taking a detour and sailing up the coast of Africa. Once I reach the Straits of Gibraltar, I will turn West and make a straight course for America.

In response to a comment that I'm unable to locate about the Barracuda.

The Barracuda's being deployed are single seat Close Air Support variants, and the gun has the same caliber and rate of fire as that of the A-10, firing depleted uranium explosive shells. For larger targets, 2,000lb bombs and Anti-Armour missiles are also a major part of the Barracuda's armament. The Barracuda has armour designed off technology from the Il-2 Shturmovik and A-10 Warthog, making it extremely durable. The gun of a Tank does not have the rate of fire or accuracy to destroy a fast-moving airborne target, so I'm not afraid of that problem. For tough targets like the HAT-1s you mentioned, I am intending to take medium range shots on them with Anti-shipping missiles. These are definitely overkill for such a target, but a Vikhr is not suitable for such a purpose.

Due to an immensly tight schedule, (helping building a house doing school,etc, etc,) I probably won't have large amounts of time to check MOCpages. Please be patient... I'l try to stay on-top of things.

It seems Project: Alkaline has seen some enlightenment as the front third of the fuselage is nearing completion. However, a drawback has occurred. The powerplants once though sufficient enough to power the craft are now deemed too small. This will be fixed in due time.

Anyhow, LCGs will be equipped with sub-hunting equipment (both munitions and location equipment) so air power may be supplied in the no-sail zone off of SSW coasts. Along with LCGs, HUAs (Heavy Utility Airframe) will be equipped with the said add-ons. Three gunship model HUAs will be sent to the SAP and another two to Panama. MRNCs with anti-ship munitions will be a regular sight as well.

Adding on to the notation of defense, several dozen AMBTs will be moved to the very edge of the Prusso-SAP border as to prevent any "stray" troops from entering our borders. UUCs and MACVs will also be accompanying them.

In other news, Mississippi is nearing 3/4 populace consensus in response to joining the SAP. Once this number is absolutely definite the SSW will annex the State and provide it with defense en suite.

The SSW can probably fill the requirements seeing as though we're in the same boat as you.

Quoting Jeffery Smith
The American Conflict today has been relatively active across all fronts. Lets start with the Californian paratroopers situation.

The airfields they control have been made use of quite effectively and have been used to fly in air defense systems, MBTs, reinforcements, surplus supplies, and have had several different aircraft rebased to then. This increase of resources in the area has led to a rapid push to the suburbs of NYC.

This advance is sure to go quite slowly from here on though, as street by street urban fighting in Americas largest city is sure to intensify quickly. The estimated time it will take for the Californian troops to attempt to take NYC measures up to be about two to three months due to the heavy Prussian resistance they are sure to face.

The Prussians have begun dispatching reinforcements to the NYC area in preparation for the impending attacks.

As for the Idaho force of marines, they are still pinned down barely a mile from their landing zone. Unable to receive supplies today due to the approach of the Egyptian Navy, the marines have been forced to hold their position under heavy fire from the Prussians.

Out west in Missouri, the PCU forces made a gain of a 1 miles due to their superior armor and recently arrived air support from the URSA. Though the Prussians in the defensive area are putting up a valiant fight, these Blitzkrieg attack styles have been pounding their armor and infantry.

In one case, perhaps they were pounded too much. One HAT-1 tank had a little bit of a trigger-happy gunner who carelessly fired all of the main guns rounds to scatter Prussian infantry in a wheat field. The Prussians rushed to hurry one of their Prowler tanks in an effort to dispatch the unarmed HAT-1.

As the HAT-1 reached the end of the wheat field, it approached a small drop-off at the end of the field. At the end of this drop-off was the Prussian Prowler, facing directly at the HAT-1. Without thinking twice, the commander of the HAT-1 put the throttle to maximum and sent the gigantic HAT-1 down the hill at high speed. Being nearly twice as wide than the Prowler, the HAT-1 smashed right through the front of it, buckling the main guns of both tanks. When the smoke and dust cleared, the HAT-1, mostly intact, rested atop the heavily damaged Prowler.

The Prowler crew survived spectacularly and managed to escape before the PCU troops arrived on the scene. The crew of the HAT-1 was awarded medals for their brave, and arguably stupid, actions. But this one incident does not sum up the entire battle along the Western Front. In many locations, the Prussian infantrymen were able to push back the infantry of the PCU and regain some of the territory. At most, these counterattacks regained up to 1 of a mile in various areas along the front.

That is all for todays summary of the war. Flickrmail me if you have any questions or changes, as my regular email is having issues sending replies. For those who dont know, Im pmjredsox on Flickr.

I'll be making a slight add-on to today's American post.

After several delays due to weather and communication errors, the Texan Navy has sent several search-and-destroy parties meant to intercept the Egyptian submarines that will be nearing the era. The Texan ships will be dispatched into the Gulf of Mexico and several of them will be nearing the SSW no-sail zone in hopes of catching some ships attempting to make haste around the blockade/stockade.

As of 1843 hours EST, Texan armour units have will have passed a quarter of a mile beyond the Mississippi-Tennessee border. Dug-in Prussian troops have repelled several assaults made by the Texans and now the two are in a stranglehold for a proper spear point. Rumors have it that more Texan armour will be nearing the flanks of the Prussian lines; however, these are merely unconfirmed rumors.

Also, Texan and Egyptian fleets have been gaining momentum towards each other in the high seas. One reconnaissance plane was shot down. The pilot survived after he was picked up by local fisherman heading for one last run.

Moving along towards New England and the sounds of artillery have been heard from Texan cannons with Pittsburgh and Philadelphia as the targets. However, the Prussian troops have made quite a few fortifications and are resting somewhat easily in their make-shift bunkers. CQB will be the next stage of the assault.

Anyhow, this is a post meant mainly for Texas granted he hasn't seen much action and has a plan of his own. Jeffery, you can do what you like with this post. Either delete it and make it better or just flow from here. I didn't mean to impinge on your job or anything of the like, but I'm quite sure you won't mind granted your position.

Sorry, but I don't believe any American would prefer European rule over rule by fellow Americans. Mind you that you've only been in control for a few months, whereas America has been unified for over 200 years. You're effect after coming in with me and other Europeans probably didn't come across too well to the patriotic American people.

Being a New Englander, I know firsthand that anyone from my region wouldn't favor European rule over American. If anything, you'd have citizens defecting or rebelling. They're not going to give up an allegiance that's centuries old for one formed mere months ago.

They aren't really "European ruled;" they live in their own state in the empire, the EUSA. Their culture is untouched, and they even get to have what state-level government they want. The same mostly goes for every other state in the empire.

OK, then... Tim Cliffe, I would like to have complete control over one Air Force/Army base of your choice. My Storm Troopers (including paratroopers) will operate from this base, and if you don't mind I'll have my Elites scatter randomly over the front in somewhat of a Geurilla-Terrorist style warfare. I will immediately begin patrols over Prusso-Egypt territory with Su-51s. I will dispatch helicopters and Tu-225s into the New York front, and next week I will attempt to drop Elites during the night. I won't use cluster munitions, to keep civilian casualties as low as possible. If I'm needed elsewhere, give the order and I'll be there. Most of my Storm troopers have arrived, and my Elites are all ready for combat. Some Storm Troopers are coming by ship with the Navy division, which should arrive on Saturday. If it seems needed, I will send over a bomber force with FOABS, but I'd like to avoid that if possible. (A lot of civilians would die that way.) I think that's all I have to say for now...

But if you went out and asked the average American, how many would rather be ruled by other Americans rather than a foreigh power?
You must also consider though that these same people have just gone through three civil wars in less than a decade, so they are probably not of the same ideology anymore. Prusso-Egypt has a fine economy in comparison the the last few rulers, and there's at least a 50% chance that the people wouldn't really care that their supreme rulers are in another continent as long as they have money in their bank accounts.

And that bias to foreigners is what we call nationalism. Pride for your nation is also called patriotism. Which Americans have in excess.

Speaking of nationality, are you an American that's a hardcore Prussian fan, or are you actually in Germany or what once was Prussia?

I'm an American that views America as... well, I probably shouldn't say, but I think that because of its extreme lack of discipline in society, the only way to save it is by conducting impossibly enormous ethical reforms that would probably also require major changes to the Constitution.

I think that Prussia and ancient Egypt were the best states the world has ever seen. Out of indecisiveness, I decided to combine the two. Prusso-Egypt was born.

So yes, I am an American who is a hardcore Prussian and ancient Egyptian fan.

Except the fact that Prussia was an imperialistic state that encouraged ethnic separation and an absolute system of hierarchy. Egypt constituted slavery and instituted theocracy over Rationalism.

Don't get me wrong, modern America is the worst state it's ever been. Socialism is being encouraged while politics could care less about our system. Liberals now control the system that is very much Conservative. Our government is now a fallacy that cannot do what is best. With the election of Obama, America just showed how quick-face and bias it really is because he lacks leadership. He's an intelligent man, but he lacks what every great President has shown. Teddy Roosevelt was the best President we have ever seen.

Quite a shift in the war today as Prussia has forced back the PCU and Taxas forces along a large portion of the Western Front, pushing them back up to two miles in some areas. The American forces orderly retreated to established defensive positions to attempt to make this as far as the Prussian counterattack will go.

The Texas assault on Pennsylvania is continuing at the same rate is yesterday with no significant deployment yet of Prussian defenses. I'm sure this will change in the next few days, so Texas, take advantage of this while you can.

The Californian paratroopers have pushed through about half a mile of NYC suburbs and are still fairly far from the city itself and the intense fighting that is expected. With the arrival of reinforcements, this paratroop force hopes to make constant advances towards NVC until it is secured.

The Idaho marines were relieved to see PCU aircraft flying above them to force back the fierce Prussian counterattack on their coastal positions. The marines advanced a half mile into Prussian territory and are now concentrated in several small farming towns. The marines plan to advance further suring the night, despite Prussia's heavy resistance.

That's all for now, folks.

Jeffrey, I would please like to know more information about the air war. I think there wouldn't be any room for PCU or Texan planes in the sky anywhere with the Luftwaffe's, Nova Scotia's and Ukraine's Air Forces all concentrated on various roles in America.

Anti-Air defenses aren't as powerful as they once were, as no current Anti-Aircraft system can track a Stealth fighter. Currently, I am using Su-51s for the front-line Air Superiority role, and therefore tracking is limited to human eyes. My close air support aircraft typically fly low enough that only an expert gunner would be able to gun them down. I have equipped all my Tu-225s with ECM and towed decoy systems, as well as chaff and flares. This goes both ways though, as we are also limited with our surface-to-air defenses. Also, your planes are at somewhat of a disadvantage as the missiles are on the outside of the body, making the aircraft detectable by radar. Under most circumstances, we would be shooting missiles at you before you even knew we were there. The RA F-22s will be our greatest threat, as they match the Su-51 on every aspect of maneuverability and stealth, and their avionics are more advanced. The Ukrainian Air force is equally matched in numbers to the RA, so this problem is probably not that big of a deal, as our training is equally matched, and my pilots have superior amounts of combat experience.

So far, the saying has stayed true: "History repeats itself." Seeing as though automated and autonomous AAA systems aren't plausible means to destroy stealth airframes, I believe the world will have to resort to the amassed volleys of flak. So, the most obvious means to intercept your planes will be just that. However, higher altitudes will still prove to out-phase this method. I guess the pros and cons aren't in the right ratio.

ALRIGHT PEOPLE. YOU JUST MADE ME VERY, VERY, ANGRY.

And when I get angry, I get stuff DONE.

So, I have no choice now but to leave America and defend Egypt with all my might. ALL forces but those of the EUSA Army will leave America immediately. Because of our superior railroad systems and the Egyptian Navy's conveniently recent arrival at the coast, most equipment will be moved very quickly.

Plus, Egypt has an army now. As of now, there is a humongous force in Egypt. Ever since I created the army I've had it there, because I realized how dangerously close Armenia was to it. So we're going to put up the biggest fight of our lives.

What about the PCU Navy off the coast of Virginia? It would sink any and all ships we see.

Seeing as the East American Conflict is pretty much over, Idaho would like to step up and claim Virginia as another province to the ever growing PCU...

Have you sent your defensive plan to Jeffery yet? And i have the Advantege of surprise on my side. Plus you have no allies near me. We will wait and see what Jeffery has to say about who wins the opening round.

On 4:09 Central American Time, Idaho has declared war on Prusso-Egypt. As it's first act of war, Idaho is now firing 5 AGMS-1s into Poland.

The egyptian army may be large but it has not seen combat and training can only do so much. At least 75% of my invasion force has seen combat in one theator or another and my air force is one of the best in the world.

Mine hadn't seen any conflict either but it saw pretty much "extreme training" in Eastern Russia when we just waited for an attack...

As the war in America is over, I am going to begin agricultural development of my South African territory in a effort to boost my faltering economy. Hopefully we will be able to regain our immense power before we are attacked.

My Navy division is heading for our port in Madagascar, which it should reach late next week.

Hostilities with Israel are becoming tense, but war has not been declared at the moment.

Initial reports so far indicate that the ICBMs just got to England and that it should be impacting in Poland in 30 minutes...

If your economy is hitting the slumps, the SSW would be more than happy to expand trade with Ukraine and its territories. South Africa is fairly developed and could export a few goods here and there to your south African territories in a faith of mutual return. Also, resources from the SAP (rice, timber, etc.) are in abundance with an eye for a buyer. Not to mention all of the resources and ground equipment available in the mainframe of Euro-SSW.

That's rather slow. It takes less than 35 minutes from launch to impact for most ICBMs; often much shorter. On most occasions it takes only 2 minutes for ICBMs to hit target after reentry.

It's all good. Modern ICBMs travel at an approximate speed of 4km/s.

In PCU News, the Idaho Governator has recieved a fat lip today when a military advisor decided that he was better fit to lead the Idaho Government. Fighting ensued. At the end, the advisor was a bullet-ridden thing with a sword slash from the Governator right across his neck. A new Advisor should be picked tomorrow...

Lasers are primed, sir, as well as hypersonic interceptors(http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/103487). I in fact, they should already have been shot down by now.

Lasers are only useful in the booster phase when there is fuel to be exploded. In the reentry phase the warhead is running on gravity. And even if you could catch up to the Warhead with your interceptors you couldn't do anything to it because it is moving faster than the bullets.
