I'm between semesters. Just wrapped up my homeschool semester, and I fly out tomorrow to Galena for my aviation school semester.

Oh...Is flying fun?



If you're as much of an aviation nut as I am, its better then any theme park ride. I love the feeling of breaking the bonds of gravity...others however find it rather uncomfortable. As one flying ad (for stunt planes) puts is, "If your idea of fun makes your friends puke..." I really enjoy it.

Scotland has light parliamentary control over Australia, being that I allowed Creme-de-la-creme to become active ruler of the territory to monitor his abilities. If he isn't active enough or never comments in the group, Scotland will either hand the task to another potential member or gain almost full parliamentary rule over Australia.

My Tu-225s have picked up your fleet. Please don't shoot! =P They will provide close air support for your armoured divisions, while the Ar-59s and Su-51SFs (strike fighter) will knock out radars and other shoreline defenses. Get your fighters in the air, the Russian jets are probably gonna show up quick. Su-51s and MiG-67s are moving into the danger zone after Russian fighters. My MiG-29s and Su-27s will mostly be used for air-to-ground strike roles, while the top-guns fly around and shoot anyone who attacks them. I've got three AWACs and four re-feulers in the area that you might want to use. My tank division will remain in China until you have taken Kamkatcha. My soldiers are being airdropped into the Kamkatcha, covered by mobs of Su-51s. My helicopter fleets have already began pounding radars with
Vikhr anti-tank-missiles, buy I can't say how much damage has been done until a conflict moderator comes on.

Quoting Jeffery Smith

The Russian "Transformatanks" have proven utterly useless against the might of the United Forces. These lightly armored and poorly controlled devices are vulnerable to even small arms fire from ground forces and have simply been ignored and run over by the enemy armor.


Gus needs to make a picture of a HAT-1 crushing a transforma-tank now.

Other than that... South America has seen about a dozen more dead thanks to some well planned rebel ambushes. Our troops, spearheaded by as many first invasion of East Russia veterans as we could gather, are pressing onwards as far as they can. Once again, hardly any resistance. Without the CAS, these guys are going down, just like they should have the first time.

Sorry for the prolonged absence from the SSW. I'll blame it on internal reorganization and political relief. Sound good? Say yes and you don't get the stick to the face. Good boy.

Anyhow, Angola has tried to open negotiations with Swiss officials. Temporarily, the fields of combat have ceased to fire with the occasional pot-shot from a misinformed mercenary or soldier of our own. In any case, the SSW is taking this time to fort-up and prepare for a counter-assault or another push forward. Another 2,000 troops from Germany and Austria will be sent to reinforce the area.

In any case, shocking news has come from Botswana. Because of the "White" control over Namibia, Botswana has removed itself from the TADC and has begun removing the Caucasian minority from the public. This may lead to a possible battle of apartheid or even distaste of specified peoples. The government of said nation has given the order for SSW forces to be removed by its own power or by Boatswain force. Talks will begin to right this conflict, but it will probably be talks of a one-sided mute.

The Prussian Luftwaffe has completed their new AWACS system. MOCing it will possibly occur tonight. Most shocking is just how well the Egyptian specialists were able to mount the new ionic turbulence scanner- no external parts, only internal, in the belly and in the nose of the aircraft. The craft also features a conventional AWACS radar dish, however. This way, it has extended capability while appearing to the enemy to be a conventional AWACS.

The Angolan War has come down to a one week armistice until the official Angolan government may contact FLEC and negotiate political standings internally. Regular reconnaissance and forward-defense sorties still are present and there seems to be movement on both sides of the table. To draw a quick conclusion, Angola is presenting a visage to prepare another assault. However, no true evidence can support this.

In Botswana, riots have occurred in regularity to completely remove all peoples other than the three main ones (Tswana, Kalanga, Bushmen). This has been causing a great deal of stress in terms of political tension. Thus, military action will be taking place in said nation. The policy to establish a means of tangible reason will be dubbed the International Humanitarian Civil Defense Act (IHCDA). This will bring a means of defensive (military) action and funding from the SSW for the peoples that are being suppressed without representation. The IHCDA goes into action tonight and recovery operations to set defense for the folk in target. A notice of war has not been set at this time granted its a civil rebellion and not a de facto hierarchical notice. This may change depending on Botswana's pressure to remove Swiss forces from the area as said some time ago and if they provide riot control forces.

Then the HAT-1 got PO'd and grew wings.

In East Russia, for the second time, our troops press forward, destroying the enemy's vehicles and troops wherever they can. It's cool. Literally, since it's winter in Siberia.

In South America, the usual is going on. Dead soldiers, dead rebels, tanks thundering through places that have never before been traversed by vehicles... A large rebel ambush was succesfully fought off somewhere in there, too. The first HAT-1 has been immobilized, but this is after months of combat in Peru and weeks in the jungle fighting off ambushes, mind you.

The SSW has progressed its offices in Namibia over the past week to a point in which the temporary office has become well-planted and may hold to a permanent one. The civil take to the the office as of right now will grant an answer soon enough. A great eye will be placed upon the area in the next two weeks to see if a Swiss administration can be held.

Aside from the moderate positivity of Namibia, Botswana has turned the blind-eye and cold shoulder towards the SSW. The political standing by said nation upon the civil dispute and possible genocide has been labeled "tribal conflict with self-resolution". This shows that no action shall be taken to stop the conflicts. A final run of talks will take place tonight. If they fail, war upon Botswana is a definite based upon the recent IHCDA.

War with Angola may surely come to a close as the militants of the opposing side have withdrawn to some level and the armistice has come to full-drawn withdrawal talks with peace and commercial spread the major focus. No progress has yet to be named.

Anyhow, the joint project between Alaska and the SSW will be concluding soon. Prototypical photos will be sent to the RA before the final vehicle is released. If specifications meet standard, the module vehicle will be set on a high production rate and shall be open to sale with the American powers and Ukraine in case of the East Russian War.

Huh. The PCU just commenced a huge invasion and I almost missed out on it? Anyways, 20 newly purchased Larks, 5 Eagles, and about 300 soldiers (pulling out of Nevada) will be transported to Eastern Russia to aid the attack against the 'army' of transforma tanks. Larks and infantry will take out the 'tanks' while the Eagles preform bombing runs on Okhotsk, a city bordering the Sea of Okhotsk (I'm assuming that's Jewell's territory. That's about as east as Russia goes...). Afterwords the Eagles will pull back to refule and reload, and then preform recon for ground troops (not firing mind you, don't want to waste ammo on those 'tanks').

In notice to Ukraine, would your government allow several SSW SOFs to travel with your dispatching forces for Siberian training and evaluation? This is just a means to test the efficiency of Arctic combat and assess what technologies or tactics may be need in case of future defenses that may have to be applied.

That will be fine. If you could get them to Shenyang, they can travel/fight/live with my soldiers. My land and air forces are mostly operating out of Shenyang and Harbin, so if they can get there they will be OK.

Then it is on.

We have issued a declaration of war to the Belorussian government and orders have already been given for a surprise attack to weaken defenses.

The orders have been issued. Overnight and into tomorrow bombers will be scrambled for our extensive bases in Villinus, Lithuania. These bombers include: StormHawk fighter/bombers outfitted for bombing service, Tu-225's acquired from Ukraine, and Tu-118's acquired from Armenia. More StormHawks will also be deployed as escorts for the bombmers, to destroy any enemy opposition that may come in the air, and SilentHawk stealth fighters will also be sent out to detect and destroy any opposing planes.
Bombing targets include, any and all military installations within the areas of Belarus closest to my borders, where I plan to invade first. Several cities that may pose a hinderence in the path of our plans will have flyers dropped on them tonight, urging the citizens to either leave, or take precautionary measures. We will give them a period of two days, until midday Friday, when bombing of the cities shall commence.

We will attempt to win the battle in the skies before our land invasion, but all our tank divisions and necessary materials for the invasion will be sped to the borders right away, where preparations can begin.

thank you, however I am not sure where to evacuate citizens, Having them just flee to other parts of Balarus would be problematic, because parts not being attacked now would certainly be under attack as the invasion progresses.

Granted you have no forces in Belarus via the ground, you could drop pamphlets in the immediate cities to warn them of the impending assault and set temporary refugee camps within the edge of your border for a possible haven during the first invasion phase. As combat progresses, you'll be able more area to work with in terms of settling area to work with the citizens. If need be the case, I'm quite sure the UNS can mobilize forces to protect and transport a greater portion of the citizens into eastern territory until the refugee's homes are considered "stable". This would just be my approach. All of this isn't to mention that Belarus will probably have an evacuation plan of its own to mobilize its citizens elsewhere.

I have dropped pamphlets, I believe I called them "flyers" in my proclamation post. They were dropped on cities in the line of fire overnight, and citizens will be given a period of two to three days to make their own decisions.

Dr. S, I have a question. Has anyone taken Montenegro? If not, can I invade it(it's a small country)?

Actually, I think you may already have it. I'll have to check the maps.

In other news, the AIS has finished bombing a major stronghold in Peru. It is an vital transportation link for the Peruvians and its destruction spells a major blow for them. AIS forces are storming the stronghold right now to take prisoners of the survivors, and to patrol the road used by the Peruvians.

As for AIS infastructure, a very late (or early) hurricane has struck the coast of Costa Rica (a territory of AIS), causing vast flooding and many deaths. Any aid in helping the citizens out of their flooded villages and to safer areas would be much appreciated.

And finally, as for things with me, the F-37 will (hopefully) be revamped with a new nose and more improvements and be the new version be uploaded to MOCpages and flickr by Saturday. Also soon to be uploaded (and built) is a possible little "essay" MOC about the AIS and its infastructure. I don't know if anyone's done that before, but I'd think it'd be cool.

I suppose its Belorussian war update time. If any of you care.

Today the air battle over Belarus began. Bombing of military bases in the immediate vicinity of the Lithuanian border was largely successful, with an almost 40% destruction rate for all targets. More runs will continue tomorrow to try and eliminate the remaining 60% of previous targets, and also establish and begin bombing new targets not already hit today.

Pamphlets were also dropped on most cities within the immediate area to warn the citizens. We have already intercepted Belorussian plans to evacuate citizens to other parts of the country. Included in those intercepts were what seemed to be plans for a civilian army to be established. But information is still inconclusive, as their government must have realized we had picked up their transmissions, and abruptly changed them. However, many Belorussian citizens began showing up at Lithuanian and Latvian border stations today, some by car, and even some on foot. All were rounded up and placed on buses and brought to refugee camps that have been hastily erected.

Meanwhile, there has been light to moderate resistance in the skies. formations of enemy planes ranging in size from two to eight planes large approached several bomber squadrons, but our fighters drove them off. A total of five enemy aircraft have been confirmed downed with two more unconfirmed for today. None of our planes have been lost, and that is a tribute to our excellent fighter pilots.

Talks with Angola have concluded. Thus, the war has been marked as an "ended matter of resistance with the antagonist resolved." This means FLEC has been deemed an enemy of Angola and of course what remains of the TADC. Swiss withdrawal will commence immediately and most of the forces will go ahead and mobilize to Botswana.

Speaking of Botswana, war has been declared upon said nation. A majority of the attacked peoples have been stabilized and removed from the harsh areas of dense rioting. Using the limited forces stationed in the area, the SSW will try to make a swift flight to the capital to effectively capture the governing body. Otherwise, the forces in said air installations will be trapped and won't have support until forces can come from South Africa. The official designation of this attack has been named Operation: Hostage. No further news has yet to be reported.

Accordingly, Operation: Hostage is underway and the forces withdrawn from Angola are heading directly to Botswana. Thankfully, the fast-pace assault from the internal forces not yet withdrawn from Botswana were able to hold out long enough for Raiders and other airborne-classed operators to provide reinforcements and forces push in from the southwest. Thus far, the cities that are being held as "secured" stand as follows: Mochudi, Mamuno, Nata, and Lobaste. The main targets now include the capturing of Gaborone (capital), Kanye, Maun, and the entire Ghanzi and Kgalagadi provinces/states. Some 8,000 forces will be moving into the latter two areas over the next two days while another 5,000 disperse themselves for preliminary combat roles in the city-based conflicts of the rest. Accompanying them will be the Troisime Lourde Brigade d'Armure and Cinquime Armure Moyenne En Collaboration. The armour brigade consists of 10 AMBT Mk.IIs, 25 UUCs, and various other supporting vehicles. The collaborative (equivalent to one and a half cavalry squadrons) contains 5 AMBT Mk.IIs, 20 AMBTs, 20 UUCs, 12 AAUCs and accompanying support vehicles. Also to be noted, the collaborative is now an experimental unit set that consist of a mix of SRAF and SRA units to set a combined tactical force with less communication delay and error. In any case, the strike will commence in three timed phases. The first being at 1830 hours, second at 2058 hours, and the last at 0420 hours. From there, reinforcement will be organized if needed and unlimited air support has been granted because of the singular conflict size.

In other news, the troops sent to China to "bunk" with Ukrainian militants have been confirmed to have arrived. They will be almost completely be under Ukrainian command because of the action of combat, but again, their main role is to observe the handling of the environment and the structure of foreign militaries. They will be wearing red helmets to signify a passive role in the United Forces cause. If fired upon and casualties are ranked, war will follow swiftly with a nice hint of first-blood for the enemy. Keep in mind the SSW is an active international force and the world is kept in its teeth.

Also, the SSW is willing to sell 30 MRNCs to the PCU for extended combat role in amphibious conditions. If you don't accept the offer, it will tided to the RA and Ukraine as a notice of extended commerce. What say you?

Because Kosovo has not been recognized as a sovereign nation by Serbia, the SSW will honor the defense agreement and fight against you if you choose to attack Kosovo. Your minute technological achievement will show no difference compared to the tried militaries of the MU and SSW. Plus, with two-thirds of the UNS involved, Scotland will be sure to follow en suite with some support.

The SSW will be passing a bill for a more developed system of amphibious assaults. Granted that the SSW may be pulled into the Pacific to help protect interests there (such as Scotland's Pacific islands), Marine and Navy training will be commence in the Netherlands and off the coast of western Germany. The Netherlands will serve as the favored "island-hopping" training ground and Germany shall be that of the "frontal-face" invasion plan.

More news from then Belorussian war.

The enemy has begun to make defenses around major cities and has begun to execute seemingly desperate areal attacks to attempt and put damage on our fleet of bombers. These "attacks" have not been effective whatsoever, as the planes are outdated fighters with no stealth capabilities whatsoever. These fighters are easily detected, and then become easy pickin's for the highly advanced StormHawks.

Meanwhile, the enemy has also set up hastily made defenses around cities such as Hroda and Lida. As far as we can tell, these defenses are doing ore to hurt the Belorussians than help. They are not letting any citizens out, and therefore the citizens cannot escape the coming bombings.

On note of the bombings, we gave all citizens fair warning that they were to begin bombing militarial and governmental targets in cities midday on Friday. Most citizens have heeded warning, and attempted to leave. Those not stopped by their own government have fled further into Belarus. But a surprising number have actually made it to our borders, and being the generous souls that we are, let them in. (As long as they passed screening, we can't have any spies or terrorists getting in now can we?)

Most of our ground forces have now arrived at our staging areas along the border, and we plan to make the first push in by this weekend. The enemy has also been attempting to assemble forces and meet us halfway. Just this morning, two Storm?Hawks ran accross a convoy consisting of ten tanks, and many trucks and troop transports. Tankbusters quickly eliminated six of the tanks, while bolters and other missiles made short work of most transports. Other transports like this have been noticed, however, the enemy has few vehicles at their disposal in the immediate area. Bombings of military targets have proved quite effective, and so far they have only shown meager forces in hopes of stemming the tide once we begin the ground assault.

Anyhow, I was interested in trading the MRNCs for the rights to open a small mining corporation in your South American territory. No militants, strictly business confidentiality. The main aim of this would be the extraction of copper, zinc, and a small amount of oil to build a surplus in the SSW during times of combat. Of course some profit will go back into the PCU economy; I'd say at least 15% direct, 30% to the local area, and the rest back to the Swiss market. What say you?

Operation: Hostage has seen some promising, but unexpected results. The remaining caucasian portion of the government has resigned to form the Progressive Perseverance Defense Party (PPDP). Thus, something near 5% of the Boatswain military has followed en suite (the caucasian minority) and will begin supporting SSW troops with intel and internal links with favoring individuals still entitled government.

Noted towards Alaska, granted you now have control over Japan, the SSW is wondering if it would be possible to contract Mitsubishi for the development of the newest armour addition?

In any case, the SSW has progressively moved forward in the Botswana theatre. The city of Kanye was declared "secure; pending organization" as of 2307 hours EST yesterday after resistance slacked up. From here, we can set up a mid-ranged assault camp for further aims at Gaborone if it does not follow en suite shortly. A tad northwest, the entire state of Ghanzi seems quiet with little military involvement. It's believed that the extended distance of its towns from the governing hub has presented less racial bias in terms of the public distaste. However, medium armour and infantry pockets from the official military have been encountered, but with little morale because of the tactful Momentum Warfare being utilized. Thus far, SSW mechanized units traveling along the highways have been able to mark 40-80 miles each day and half. It's said more can be traversed, but elder strategies suggest always to establish an intermediate base camp in case of medical needs or attack from rallied enemy forces. All elsewhere, combat seems fierce with two contemporary militaries fighting each other. The Botswana training seems to have reared a rapidly developing military over the past few years and their technological adoptions prove to be formidable.

In other news, the SSW will be formally annexing Namibia. Instead of waiting the two weeks as planned, Swiss forces have been in place for enough time to choke-out any opposition in the government. At this time, the documentation is underway and will be drawn into the SSW within 24 hours and followed by another 72 hours for finalization. This critical time means quite a bit of military mobilization for defense and protection of high-value targets. Drills are now action plans, if one can draw meaning from that.

As an update to the combat situation in Botswana, the official military of said nation has completely denounced the rebel faction that caused the racial war and will now replace them according to press releases and intercepted transmissions. While they try to set in with the military alone, SSW UAVs will be flying rapid flights to destroy enemy communications and destroy deploying convoys and patrols. Raiders will be moving house-to-house in the denser portions of targeted cities to assure no sniper or MG nests can get the better of mobilizing friendlies.

At 800 hours this morning, the Western front was opened. Tank divisions and armored divisions stormed across the border along a 100 mile stretch of the Lithuanian border. Much of this area has already been cleared by planes with bombing raids and other tactics. what was once forest or farmland seems barren now, and no enemy vehicles have yet been spotted. We expect to reach the cities of Hroda and Lida tomorrow, where we will surely counter much more opposition. Reconnaissance planes have spotted enemy forces gathered in bases and camps in and around the city, made up of tanks and other vehicles from military bases in and around the city, as well as the soldiers from said camps. A number of civilian militias are also poised to defend their cities. bombing continues on the outposts surrounding the cities as well as the military targets within the city until our forces arrive.

Official reports indicate that via a massive battle that has killed 100-140 men, PCU Forces have taken Palau. Now, the 2,300 men still stationed on Palau will be shuttled to Caroline Islands to assist the Westerners, who have successfully taken two small islands and have taken around 300 casualties.

In Peru, friendlies have moved up another .5 miles and currently are in open combat with Peruvian Rebels. Plans are being made to move the 1,000 Peruvian Army personnel from Lima to the front so we have more man power. The current answer on that proposal is still unknown. 5 MT-2 tanks will be shipped to the front tomorrow aboard a C-5. They will assist in clearing brush and some small trees with the bulldozer/minesweeper.

In Idaho, work on a new plane has begun. It hasn't SNOT wings so expect better weaponry.

It was some sort of cold or flu that kinda gave my arms and legs Charlie horses I looked lime an odd bird... Might I add that was the longest/most painful 2 hours in my life, although I did get to ride in a ambulance which was cool, anyway on to the unification of Eastern Canada.

Since we are at the outskirts of Qubec City we will split into two groups taking the city from the east and west, and there will be no limitations of what type of artillery you use!

That sounds like it was horrible, man. So sorry to hear about it, so glad to hear you're feeling better.

Anyway- our men are beginning the assault. The Prussians are eliminating key targets with precision strikes from Black Eagles and high-accuracy artillery, while the Egyptian Marines are having a ball taking out large groups of enemy forces with overwhelmingly massive volleys of howitzer fire. Overkill... you gotta love it somehow :-)

At the PCU: Have you come to a conclusion on the trade proposition?

In other news, VDS has been contracted again to make another LRV-based vehicle similar to all makes and foreign production models of the HMMWV. The first-rate model wanted is the logistical support variant followed en suite by a squad support vehicle with enough armor to protect troops in urban environments. Thus far, 5 prototypical models have been produced and sent to Botswana. Field information will be vital to the final make.

On note of the war in Botswana, SSW forces have marked an overall bench of a 86 mile average gain in the skirts of the western states. Towards the capital, combat is slowing down, but once it starts the enemy presses hard. Fortifications around political high-grounds are dense and overwhelming. It's been nearly impossible to insert close-air support without critical damage being sustained by friendlies. Thus, the next few days will be the hunkering down until Raiders can destroy AAA and secure a stronghold long enough for a tactical spearhead.

The city of Hroda was reached early this morning, while the city of Lida was reached around midday. Battles have ensued to take both cities. So far there have been a few casualties, combined from both battles, 47 soldiers have died, while another 102 soldiers have been wounded. Two tanks have been destroyed, and two APCs have also been destroyed. On the other side, enemy casualties are about 200 men dead, and another 300 or more wounded, most of which are the untrained civilians thrust into the fight by a desperate enemy. eight tanks have been destroyed, and three captured. many other vehicles have been destroyed by our forces, which are currently only five miles outside Hroda, and six outside of Lida. We expect to take the cities in the next few days, while more forces pour in to surround the cities.

The Second African War (dubbed by Swiss officials) has seen little progress as the weather has proven to be a worse foe than the enemy. Humidity has climbed up a bit in most areas dragging combat to a mutual slow-pace. Towards the south, rain has caused conditions to become quite muddy. Most forces have set up temporary resting stations as portions of infantry battlements move on foot. No new targets have been set as of yet, but the capital has become the greatest effort. 2,500 more men were sent there to reinforce and bring dwindling numbers of youthful men up-to-par. The fortifications have been brought down bit-by-bit, but most of the ones near the capitalistic buildings grow thicker. CQB training from a few months ago are proving to be a great asset as most casualties from house-to-house fighting have been reduced.

In other news, the new squad support vehicle has been finished and the first 1,800 units will be completed at the end of next month granted it utilizes components from LUTs and UUCs. The manufacturing costs are also quite low because of the shared parts. They'll be on the market soon enough to add hastily.

From my understanding, Australia follows very lightly under his control with only higher-up government matters and defense being the true strings of his presence granted he spent some time taking military action in the area a few months back. Attempting you remove yourself from his control may be considered a national threat (politically speaking).

Seceding is perfectly legal, but if Shock and Awe wanted to, he could declare war on you and invade Australia. I would suggest making some close allies before going to war against Scotland. Your country would be recognized as an independant nation unless Scottland recaptures it. In the event that Scottland does re-take Australia, it would quite likely loose its independance.

It's time for Prusso-Egypt to release an economic report...

The fact of the matter is that because of Egypt, our economy is booming. In fact, it's the best it's ever been.

This is because of Egypt's selling of all kinds of new technology to a few of our allies and all kinds of developing nations. You may be thinking, "what technology?" People, remember this and remember it well: Egypt is like the new Japan. Tremendously crazy culture, tremendously awesome computer/electronics/machine technology.

The kinds of things Egypt exports are as follows:

COMPUTERS- all kinds, including PCs, laptops, netbook-like things, and really big interfaces for managing large networks and mechanical systems

SMARTPHONES- these phones can be used like walkie-talkies, command robots, have MS Office-like programs, can connect to a printer, can connect wirelessley to most other computer interfaces, and do everything phones could previously do. Plus more.

ROBOTS- yep. The time has come. Robots for cleaning, lawn care, retail management, road work, medical services, school, construction, factories(of course), multi-purpose, and still more.

MACHINES- a few different kinds, like special shelf organizers, unique indoor delivery systems, cooking devices, advanced factory and powerplant machines, all sorts of odds and ends.

PAPYROTRON- a new, very cheap device that may replace paper- I got the idea from a recent invention that's going around here. Uses specialized super-thin(yet highly durable) computer screens to display text, images, and other information. Not a complete computer, though; the content is programmed into the device. It can be re-programmed, thus, it is re-usable. It has a touch-screen capability, so you can flip the page, take notes, and more. It can be used in place of books, school textbooks, newspapers, magazines, even flyers, chalkboards, bulletin boards, signs, almost any flat surface with text on it that you can think of. This device alone has already significantly reduced the usage of paper in the entire Imperial Federation and thus improving the economy even further.

Egypt and sometimes Prussia exports all of these things, plus the usual massive amounts of unused petroleum and surplus solar power. **The latter takes a large role in providing the necessary income to maintain the costs of manufacturing plus importing what raw resources we don't already have.**

*I would LOVE to begin trading all this stuff with my allies. Anyone who is not my ally, sorry! I can't risk giving you an advantage. Just in case you don't know, Jeffrey, you are definitely one of my allies again. I don't know if you were, but you sure are now.

So, any takers? Please take this unique opportunity and help spread this amazing 21st century technology. Come on, people, it's 2036! I would have thought some of you would have thought of things like this already!

It's never the idea that's in question, it's the rate of production and economic stress need to exploit the technology. By relying on automation, all the industries used to support jobs with encouraged human interface will be denounced and a drag in the economic standing will be present. It is true that you may have a surplus of items to export, but that means you are totally dependent on others to buy your product. In a time of war or distress, embargoes can easily destroy your monetary standing in both the foreign and domestic markets. It was believed in the 1950's that all of disease would be cured and all of Man shall be equal in every aspect of production with technology being as advanced as that in which is put into novels. The sheer fact of the matter is that Man doest not allow himself to expand. The government has to know what it can and cannot due in order to keep all its people in check. Being only nearly three decades in the future, almost each and every one of us will be paying debts from the 1970's. The world grows poor and technology must stand still until we can find change in our pocket to produce it.

To honor those who have fallen in all the past campaigns of the SSW, a memorial will be in which all the names of the deceased because of military action will be added. 100 acres has been set aside to make a rather appealing public park and, more or less, a coliseum for the heroes of the new Swiss nations.

In other news, it has been confirmed that 43% of the Botswana military has been neutralized from the get-go of the war in Africa. With a small population in the north, the SSW has been able to capture all of Chobe with only the thinly stretched reconnaissance and sniper teams in the area. Only the the southeast portion up to the city of Werda has been claimed with 62 allied casualties being reported; the enemy is said to have endured 127. Just above said state, the Ghanzi has seen similar reports, but with progress stopping at the southern portion of the Okwa river with the fear of sabotaged crossings and dug-in sniper teams and artillery. Mortars have been confirmed and Raiders have been doing a fair job of suppressing the majority of them during the planning period and communication relay times. Kgatleng has also been marked as secured with withdrawing enemy militants trying to cover their retreat. Just south, fighting in the capital city has come to a temporary stop while the SSW contemplates how to deal with the increasing AAA being set up to stop flights in the area. Not to mention the increasing ground forces of the enemy. Rumors have also spread that Zimbabwe may join the Botswana resistance. Communication interceptions near the border will be set immediately with special operatives in the country attempting to gather information.

The only jobs which have been fully automated are the ones that have been for years, such as factory jobs and waste management. In our other industries, we actually don't use robots on that wide of a scale. They usually only assist in running an industry, taking up the lowest paying jobs and the jobs no one ever wants. The latter is what robots are for, really. Besides, we would NEVER even consider fully automating construction. Egyptian builders are among the most skilled on the planet! Robots may help, but they aren't even close to taking over.

Egyptian anime... Should I be repulsed or intrigued?

Anyways, the PCU doesn't have nearly as much automation as you do. In order to make jobs, almost everything is done by people, just like in olden days. More jobs=better economy, as exemplified at the end of WWII. We still use plain paper, and printing devices. Because the Governator is a quasi-Hobbesian, he has strict control over everything. Phones make calls. No pictures, no internet, no texting, they make calls, like they're supposed to. Texting, phone calls, and anything else of the sorts is not banned while driving. Seat belts are optional. Why? If you die on the road because of your own foolishness, the government will take your remaining organs for those who deserve them, regardless if you're a doner or not. In fact, any accident that could have been prevented by the victim not being a fool ends up with harvested organs. Drugs of all kinds are flat out illegal, the punishment for possession, use, or evidence of use is very severe. That means you, stoners.

Schools also get better funding. Instead of the whole government healthcare thing, insurance companies are required to keep rates low and compete for customers. Few robots here, for everything to do, there's a person. If it's automated, there's an overseer. Maybe inefficient, but beneficial to the people in the long run.

Belarus:

The city of Hrodna fell today, and the city of Lida is expected to fall any day now. Our armies are now pushing further inland to the east and south. Now our forces have split into two distinct groups, one dashing south to reach the city of Brest and secure most of western Belarus, and one heading southeast towards Baranavichy. Scouting planes have already relayed information that there will be more resistance surrounding the cities, but relatively light in the open countryside. Forces have completely surrounded Lida, and the battles to secure the streets are all that remain.

From our starting point on the border, we have pushed now forty miles south into the country. Our enemy is disorganized, and any pockets of resistance we meet are in the form of small, apparently impromptu groups of vehicles, or even individual tanks, which do almost no damage and are eliminated almost immediately. T

The hardest part of the invasion has been street and urban fighting, where the enemy, mostly foot soldiers, really digs in and must be weeded out. Our highest casualties occur in this type of warfare.

Casualties:

196 soldiers dead. 301 wounded, 51 recovered.

11 tanks destroyed, 18 damaged, 2 repaired.

7 APC's destroyed, 13 damaged, 3 repaired.

32 supply trucks destroyed, 49 damaged, 11 repaired.

15 missile trucks destroyed, 27 damaged, 6 repaired.

2 StormHawks destroyed, 16 damaged, 4 repaired.


It is almost impossible to track enemy casualties because of complete secrecy of Belorussian government. We do know that we have destroyed much more than they have managed to. Their soldier casualty rate is also extremely high, as many of their soldiers, especially in the urban fighting zones, wear impromptu armor and are killed almost immediately.

We expect to reach the capital in the next two weeks.

The Union of the North Sea will be making its first declaration of hostilities. This doctrine is one of war, and the war is upon the Nordic nations of Nathania. No true resolute can support our reasoning other than a united Europe with few powers to intervene.

Thus, at the time of this post, the UNS will be launching its forces that have been amassing during the training exercises along our coasts. Our union's satellite of the Baltic Union will also be aligned accordingly, thus our recognition is indubitable. Although I cannot speak for my peers, I can say that we are devout to the cause. They will all be making their own statements once I finish with my own.

On the SSW's side of things, we will be launching 35,000 mean and accompanying vehicles within Denmark and some 50,000 into the lands of southern Sweden and southeastern Norway. The actual plans will be sent to the CM (Conflict Moderator) and then publicized with confidential editing. Speaking of the CM, Cole Atelian has agreed to this granted he is part of the more active administrative community.

Also, any nation wishing to rise against the UNS will be treated with same declaration of war and extensive submission. We shall play no mercy. War is cold. We are cold. And your people will be cold with no life to warm them.

As the SSW waits for a progress report for the premature Nordic War (as dubbed by Swiss officials), the Second African War continues. With resources in South Africa and Namibia abundant as ever, factories in the area have been converting over the course of the Swiss occupation in said areas. Thus, production of military models will be independent from this point with little need to stress the markets of the lands owned in Europe. Tying this in, the SSW has sent an additional 8,000 troops to the capital now that 24% of the AT and AAA have been disabled in the more dense areas of the city. Although much of the outer perimeter is controlled, the city is not entirely stockaded. Because of this, a slow entry of enemy reinforcements have been noted in the area. Raiders will be sent through the course of the next few nights to intercept, harass, and hopefully neutralize this line of incoming distress on our part. To the north near the Okwa, progress has been grueling. Well-trained, professional snipers have caused an increase in the casualty rate and makes traversing the area only in available during the midst of night. Napalm and incendiary materials will be dropped in the next two days to give some relief, or so is hoped.

In all else of the SSW, borders are being armed to the teeth to assure safety of its citizens and assets. In the SAP, naval patrols and air craft sorties will become a common sight along with the MU forces stationed there. In Panama, all craft are being checked in the Canal. And along the Prussian border, the SRMA (Sovereign Republics' Mechanized Army) is doing regular patrols to ensure no rash partaking of said neighbor. Remember, action upon one member of the UNS is war with all of western Europe.

On a more down-sided note, the project with the RA has hit some delay with scheduling of combative resources and a bit of heavyheartedness on the final product. The most likely case will be a whole new redesign; again. Many apologies.

Okay, with the final leg of the invasion comming to a close with approximately 1/3 of New Brunswick now under my jurisdiction.

We are quickly/steadily heading to Fredricton and once that is done it's back home to Nova Scotia for chips, booze, and fishing or hockey (preferably hockey, major Montreal Canadiens fan!!) ahem, anyway this will finally be wrapped up by next Friday!!

The newest helicopter, for anyone who hasn't seen it or commented on it, is here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/40712407@N06/4298772248/

Shipments to the fronts are the top priority as of now and the first thirty will be spread evenly between the three fronts the PCU are on. The first ten, of which will be sent to Russia, will be completed by next week, the next ten, of which will be sent to Peru, will be completed my the third week of February. The third group, will be sent to Caroline Islands by the first week of March. Then, the production schedule is 5 every week.

AIS forces are pushing back a major force of rebels in Peru, but it is incredibly slow-going. Only few casualties have been suffered, but rebels are taking up ambush positions and have destroyed roads to slow my vehicles. An additional slight troop surge of 1,000 troops is being sent in to bolster my forces.

As an establishment of defense, the SSW would like to bring the Neutral-Arms Enactment (NAE) to the State of Washington-Oregon. This would mean that under any form or circumstance, we shall not engage each other in combat. Even if our allies arise to war, we shan't fire upon each other with complete disregard to political standing. What say you?

The technical name is Combined State of Oregon-Washington. But yes, we agree. Can't have a clash of the titans, can we? Let's hope none of our respective powers go to war, it could lead to complicated situations.

I've noticed increased terrorist activities around Australia, and last night one of our army bases was attacked. We drove them off with air strikes but we still took casualties. Maybe we can bond together to stop the threat.

In response to the SSW's "kicking off" of UNS actions, Scotland will now be making her statements. The majority of the Scottish Navy will be involved in this conflict and will proceed to blockade all of the waters around Scandinavia with the help of other UNS naval craft. Some 50,000 Scottish Royal Marine and Army forces will be commited to Norway. Specific battle plans will be sent to the CM.


I've figured out a bloodless way to meet both our needs. If you agree, Australia will separate as a single party parliamentary republic, with you as supreme head of state, therefore allowing you to ask for military, economic or political assistance at anytime during the world conflict. However, this will mean that Australia has complete control over it's own decisions, but each time we make a decision you will be notified.

If not we'll just be a constitutional monarchy.

Our Armies in Belarus have made incredible progress.

Since they split up, both army groups have reached their targets. Army group A has reached Baranavichy while army group B has stormed south and reached the city of Brest. Much of Western Belarus has fallen, with pockets of resistance still holding out in cities such as Vaukavysk, Navahrudak, and Shchuchyn, but the forces there are cut off from the rest of Belarus and whatever remains trapped in those cities shall be cleaned up by the secondary armie moving behind the front.

Baranavichy and Brest are under almost non-stop bombardment by artillery shells, missiles, and truch mounted rockets. Infantry and tank divisions are already pushing into the suburbs. Once these two cities have fallen, we plan to take control of European highway E30. once we have control of that, we can have a direct artery to Minsk, the Belorussian capital, and begin our final run to take the it.

As for Minsk, our bombers have been hitting governmental and military targets night and day, which is part of the reason why enemy forces are in such disarray.

Now that you have united just about all of Canada, may I make a big suggestion, friend?

I suggest you rename your country the Osean Federation. I know you play and love Ace Combat 5, and I know I do too. Plus, why would you call this HUMONGOUS nation Nova Scotia, the name of a little island? Even further, you have a "Sand Island."

It sounds like it would be awesome to me. What do you think?

Just as a note to the public, if any of you want to get more in-depth with your national theme you may contact Legosim to create a flag and things of the like.

He's also agreed to edit our map as a new rendition granted he has some time to do so.

You may find said individual here:

To provide support until the bulk of Rome arrives to engage in the Nordic War, the SSW will be sending 32 MRNCs to the areas designated by/for said nation. These ships should be able to provide preliminary assault, reconnaissance, and establishing some sort of foothold for our allies. From the time of this post, these ships will be under Roman command.

In the southern hemisphere, things have hit a high-note for the enemy. Botswana's neighbor of Zambia has agreed to send minute forces to aid them. Starting off, intel has gathered 4,000 Zambian militants to be sent in and around the capital cities to break the Swiss hold there. Every two weeks, another 1,000 neighboring forces will enter the country to push out the SSW. To stop this, MCAPs will be dropping munitions on major roads and highways to slow down enemy progression at the border. Not wanting to spark another declaration of war, the Guerrilla Regiment will be placing IEDs that do not officially lead to our origins. Aside from that, fortifications of the minute standing we have at the border will be increased greatly and the AF will be seeing its first major combat role by destroying large supply lines and establishing absolute control of the air.

The AIS is now officially and formally joining the RA. In the next Map territories colored AIS green may now be RA crimson.

As my first order of buisness in the RA, I'm sending 1000 reserve troops to train in Alaska alongside PCU, Texas, and, of course, RA troops.

1000 of my troops are being taken from frontline active duty from Peru to be sent home on leave.

Just one question, do I just moderate this myself or should someone else?

Most people do it themselves. If anything, I'll just keep a close eye on your comments to make sure they check out.
