Other one is uber full.
Highlights:
-Macedonia has come to power and is expanding with great promise.
-Egypt and Ukraine still seem to be promoting expansion in mid-Africa.
-The SSW and Czech Republic are at war.

And other junk I'm too lazy to right about.

The SSW acknowledges Macedonia's order of ten MRNCs and will send the units within this day from Belgian factories and they shall arrive within four to eight days.

In other news, the SSW was able to finish off the major artillery positions of the Czech forces and was able to link up with forces is Ostrava and Zin. Now, the plan is to continue the run west with Prague being the greater target. Flights from Germany have been destroying key targets in said city while keeping a majority of the structures intact to reduce eventual reconstruction costs. Few friendly casualties have been sustained.

A revision of an earlier bid for a light transport vehicle ended with the LAV-1; a super heavy vehicle not suitable for light combat. Due to that matter of importance, Idaho has decided to build a light vehicle similar to the Humvee and a truck similar to the MUT. All should be done by May, as I have many contests and such going on that will limit my building.

As spoken for, the SSW will be engaging Serbia. 8,000 initial airborne-based infantry will be dropped tonight along the norther boundaries of said nation while the SRMA mobilizes another 5,000 with armour to lead up a heavier spearhead. This will demonstrate 13,000 troops and accompanying equipment to eliminate the threat. Immediate bombing runs will be flown in as well to along northern cities where a glimpse of enemy positions have been seen by UAVs. Hopefully this will be a rather quick conflict with few resources being used. However, this is a peacekeeping mission and a pseudo-occupation is what may be needed. Only 5,000 troops shall actually be in Serbian territory while the rest lie in wait.

Also, I would like to update the request for purchase of Gyrefalcon aircraft from 24 planes to 36, with the adding of Albanian pilots.

I'm sorry but California will have to delay the purchase. Some certain internal issues are causing a momentary halt in international trade of PCU hardware. I will name a price and give a shipping date soon, but don't expect it within a week or two. Sorry for the inconvenience. (for further help, please consult our customer service department. :P)

Around noon EST today, Serbian military forces attacked a convoy of SSW peacekeeping units stationed near the Macedonian-Serbian border. The unit's three Advanced Main Battle Tanks where able to hold off the Serb attack until air support could be called in. Because of the direct attack against SSW personnel and equipment (along with numerous Macedonian casualties, mostly infantry), the SSW has decided to participate in a retaliatory strike against the Serbian Republic with Macedonia.

The 12000 reorganized Albanian troops (three brigades, 1 armored, 2 infantry) are almost finished being re-equipped with Macedonian equipment, and will be used to the fullest extent in the assault on Serbia.

Oh boy more war in the Balkans... I will be setting up refugee camps along the Romania/Serbia border for Serbian civilians. They will be extensively questioned before approval to assure that war criminals do not escape Serbia. Ukrainian Storm Troopers are at hand to invade Serbia if it is necessary. I still have several Tu-225 Close Air Support aircraft as well as MiG-35s and Su-30s stationed in Romania that are combat ready, so if you need aditional support, tell me.

Also, I agnowledge it will take some time for the delivery of the 36 Gyrefalcons. I would like to politely request that I need them by the 3rd of March.

I'm very sorry to say that I can no longer allow you to purchase the Gyrfalcon fighter. After a discussion within the PCU, we have decided that the Gyrfalcon will remain in sole possession of the URSA. The few planes that went to the SSW a while back were the only exceptions to this new policy. I'm sorry, my offer just had bad timing. I hope that our nations will be more open to trade in the future.

I was actually just looking through your PS on Flickr. Possibly, thanks for the offer! However, I am very interested in something i only saw a picture of once, in comparison to your Su-47. It was called the Firestorm or something?
----ing MOCPAGES!!! I JUST WROTE A HUMUNGO REPLY AND IT DELETED IT!!!! Grrr... Oh well, here goes an abridged version:

The Su-57 Firestom is an incomplete version of the Su-51 that my brother began, and has yet to finish.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/ra_brickforce/2834504873/
http://www.flickr.com/photos/ra_brickforce/2835353294/

Little is different from the Su-51 and the Su-57. The only difference is in the tailfins. The Su-51 has superior pitch, as well as a shorter takeoff and landing requirement. The Su-57 has more standard tailplanes, making its maneuverability almost identical to that of an F-22 Raptor.

As a test to UNS effectiveness in the Balkans, the combat in Serbia will be declared an internal affair of the Union and foreign militants are asked to not enter within the boundaries. This also serves the practical purpose of reducing the amount of possible military errors and ethnic dishonoring.

In other news, the Czech War was rather slow today as thick rainstorms have stopped both militaries from advancing without the threat of logistical error. However, the city-based troops have used this day to set up command posts and defense positions in case of an early attack by Czech forces. No further news is to be reported in the Czech Republic.

Just a bit north, the Nordic War has been claimed to be at an end by Swiss officials. Iceland is the only area not entirely secure granted some pockets of resistance where civie-based militants have set there defenses with no communication units. This area should be mopped-up by next week and troops will be withdrawn for leave and to head to Serbia/Czech Republic.

Out skiing in B.C till' Monday. First major injury of my skiing life, tripped over my pole and wrenched my neck. Although it doesn't hurt, I can't look over my left shoulder without my neck locking up. Sigh...

Anyways, on the way out to Kimberley I had a great idea. What if we made a squadron that will be made up of pilots from all across the world from all of the different nations flying every their nation's aircraft? Maybe we could call it Rainbow squadron and each country could send one representative. It could be used as a deterrent force against all terrorist forces. It would not be based in Australia, but maybe one of the big three organizations which this group is named after.

If you think this is a good idea, then reply and i will start a topic on the conversation.

Oh yeah, the name Rainbow Squadron is open to debate

(much belated) Greetings from the North...

Alaska would like to formally welcome Evan to the group and extend our friendship to Macedonia.
In response (or comment) to the Firestorm request, I did build the Firestorm, but actuall storyline production belongs to Jack. Fafnir and Firestorm were Jack's and my expressions of a concept drawing we brainstormed up a while ago. Up to Jack for the final word. I'd offer an Alaskan fighter in the mean time, but all we have ready-to-go at the present are the F-22 and F-35, since the F-38 and F-40 are unfinished in the loft at home. :-(

Little has happened in Alaska lately, aside from force rotations and (taking advantage of brief peace in the Pacific) lots of winter weather training. Also, Civil Air Patrol units are being trained more specially in combat support roles, in order to maximize Alaskan defense capabilities.

AIS Progress Report from Peru:

Peruvian rebels are still holding out in Southeaster Peru ( in the jungles). Fighting is very light however. Most rebels have been killed or captured. Most of the remaining rebels are hiding out in the jungle, mostly in small villages or huts.

2000 AIS troops have been removed and sent home for well deserved rest. Current troop numbers are approximately 5000.

Current casualties (approx.):
800 dead
500 wounded

___
In other non-combat news:

The AIS would like to join the SSW in the conquest of the Czech Republic, if it is allowed, and perhaps in return a small area of land in the Czech Republic.

Also, the AIS is also waiting upon notification of areas to be recieved from Iceland from the SSW.

PCU Officials have decided to build two naval bases that will serve as Chief Naval Ports for those regions. The first, Olivia Ann Air and Naval Base will be on the main island of the Caroline Islands, where tense fighting has just ended. In the land where the Virginia's were, we are building the James Morrison Military Base, which is named after a soldier who died in East America fighting Egyptians. This base will house all military units due to increased security.

Also, due to security, I will not be trading with anything outside of the URSA as of this time.

This isn't a question of favoritism as what the context is suggesting. And the rule hasn't been lifted. However, granted most of the newer members are Modern-Military MOCers, the administrative group knows that adding military creations are of no concern. Most of the PCU members were into other themes, and the rule was in effect. For the most part, it still is. I've made note of some individuals who have wanted to join, but do not meet the requirement. Admitting new members is often communicated between the moderating/administrative group and we only allow those who have consecutive interest(s) in our theme and can be of quality.

In notice of the AIS's inquiries, the SSW is willing to allow rights for some of your military to base in the Czech Republic after the war, but land-exchange will not happen. Territory in another state is often looked down upon because of the lack of self-sufficiency. Anyhow, Iceland requires a bit more time for official establishment is in order and if you could suffice for another week's delay to send your forces all should be ready by then.

In other news, Prague has been subject to midnight sorties as of today as airborne forces are preparing a daring operation to intrude the capital. This is probably the only progress being made granted that the thick storms are still occurring in the southeast. Forces have been mobilizing all day to the west to mobilize into the western industrial districts and prepare for the intense urban combat that will ensue.

In Serbia, 43% of the promised "border forces" have arrived and continue to exercise patrols and practice runs for entering the de facto territory. The airborne units have all landed successfully with only two casualties that were sustained during a street ambush in mountain village. The goal will be to run a center-line through the country to link up with allied forces in the south. A tributary will run west to make another route the incoming Roman forces. No further news is to be reported.

When it comes to paranoia, your as bad as me.

As Nick posted, and you obviously failed to read, he meant Stalin in the iron-fist strict. Not killing 20 million people and enforcing collectivization Stalin. And by stating you're "Fed up with Idaho", I can only assume your bearing ill-will towards states in our sub-union. I raise an eyebrow at that.

Furthermore, we are not enforcing the way we run our states on the rest of the union. You know, the whole state's rights thing, in which Michael himself told me that state governments had more independence.

Finally, our plans for a military-retaking of the South are -hypothetical- plans, along with the plan to invade China from a few months back, the plan to to invade Brazil via Peru and Ecuador (which half came through), the plan to take over Central America (then Rocky came along, and is now our ally), the plans to take the Pacific Islands (which we got started on), the plans to construct a high-tech communications array in orbit... However, I know of no plans to sell Russia and Virginia. If anything, Virginia would be made it's own state again.

I suggest you keep in mind that by questioning Nick, you're questioning Gus, Sammy, and I as well, because I was elected by them all to lead this little alliance of states. And that right there is the very right to vote Stalin opposed, even if only three people voted. If I remember correctly, I don't think very many people in this group have been elected as leaders of any organizations.

SSW forces have made a great success in terms of advancing into Serbia. The northern forces have made it to the city of Becej with a minimal casualty ratio. Close-air support has established that Serbian skies are clear and enemy foot-mobiles are in allied sights at all times. However, a great number of snipers have been reported to take pot-shots. The situation seems to be quite similar to that of the time during the Yugoslav digression some decades ago.

The Roman Republic has begun discussing deals with Tunisia about a possible business proposal to further expand Roman economic reach around the Mediterranean Sea. The deals range from opening up dozens of seaports for both trading and military use to Rome even buying significant tracts of land on the coast. But these deals have just begun being discussed and nothing is official as of this moment.

If you ever even consider talking about economics in the Mediterranean, you should talk to Egypt! We've been really wanting to do business with you guys, and we have so much stuff to trade. We do have plans for future expansion as well, so we'll have more Mediterranean coastline some time soon too. We've got all kinds of electronics, computers, robotics, solar tech, wind energy tech, natural gas, surplus electricity, and more.

The Czech War met a surprising turn as the field officers of the Czech military surrendered under the terms that they were ill-equipped and entirely defeated based upon political geography and Swiss troop-count. However, the city of Prague and the immediate areas have not made the same claims and their national reserves and "Capital Guards", as dubbed by officials, have made great boosts in trying to fortify the city. They may get this time to do so because of the need to secure some of the areas not yet occupied by SSW forces. At minimum, this will take four days. Knowing that AAA will obviously be in high density, air drops are a no-go.

In Iceland, all resistance has ended and SSW forces are making the effort to establish a new governing ministry and district there. Troops will be withdrawn in two weeks from this day and that will also be the day in which Iceland will be recognized and represented in Bern. AIS allies are expected to be allowed in the area within four days.

Back to mainstay Europe, Serbian resistance has diminished near the new southern borders as distinguished by Macedonia. However, enemy forces in much of the north seem undeterred and continue to fight with harsh efficiency. Air strikes will be in high number within the next two days as enemy artillery and convoys are designated for neutralization. With hopes high, the area should weaken end-week and the are will be fully annexed at the same time Iceland is recognized.

Shifting continents, troops actively engaged in the United African War, as dubbed by officials, will be reducing in numbers because of what seems to be a rather overwhelming success thus far. Not only this, but with SSW troops spread thin in Europe, more hardened soldiers are needed to cycle out and head home to equal out the recruit-to-veteran ratio.

Switching continents once more, the UAE-based units will be undergoing rigorous training routines these next few weeks to bring them to standard with the active European forces of the Swiss Union. Maritime training will be of the utmost importance in terms of national security and patrolling the borders via the air being another counterpart to that.

Idaho Fleets have once again been broken up. The total count we have is 15 Destroyers, and 8 Aircraft Carriers.

Here is Fleet 1:

7 Destroyers
3 Aircraft Carriers
30 GAF-1s
20 GAP-1s
300 Marines
10,000 Navy Personnel
5 HAH-1s
2 ALC-1s
10 LCA-1s

Fleet 2:

8 Destroyers
5 Carriers
60 GAF-1s
30 GAP-1s
500 Marines
15,000 Navy Personnel
10 HAH-1s
4 ALC-1s
15 LCA-1s

As you can see, Fleet 2 is more heavily armed, and therefore it is the attack fleet. Whenever battles arise, that fleet is the attacking fleet.

Fleet 1 is the patrol fleet usually used to patrol global hot-spots in case of emergency. Let's say that Egypt is having tensions with RR troops being so close (example guys, chill) and a conflict may become of it. Fleet 1 will go over near that area to be on-hand for a potential battle in case an ally is attacked.

Fleet 2 will be the fleet that will arrive in the days after Fleet 1 has engaged the enemy, if the battle is still raging. Then, the troops carried with Fleet 2 will be landed to reinforce the weary Fleet 1 soldiers.

Here are the current fleet positions:

Fleet 2 is currently forming up near the Caroline Islands to get supplies, troops, and vehicles. After receiving these supplies, and the fleet is formed (by Saturday I estimate) they will be heading to Peru, then Astoria, then Russia, then Caroline Islands, then back to Peru in a circuit. A chose this circuit due to us needing a force constantly present in places where our troops aren't there to reinforce laws being broken.

Fleet 1, already formed up, is currently on its way to Cuba, then up to Florida, then down to Africa, then up to Europe (a small stop there where we have ports is in order), then back out of the Baltic Sea and into the Arctic Sea, and we might stop in Russia, then down to our lands in Russia, then down to Hawaii, then out towards Australia, then up to Africa, then out the Suez Canal, and then back to America, down through the Panama Canal, and finally heading back to Astoria to re-supply.

It may sound more like a cruise liner than an actual fleet, but I like the system.

Also, wall of text. =)

A while back, Egypt enlarged the Suez Canal to make way for its humongous aircraft carriers. We could make similar modifications to the Panama Canal if whoever controls it will allow. Enlargements such as these usually take only about five to six months, whereas most conventional methods can take up to two years or more. We could have build teams ready to ship off to Panama within a few weeks if anyone is willing to let us do this.

These modifications would mean that the installations and economic centers around the area would have to closed, moved, and then re-opened. I don't this would be too smart of a move for Panama's economy as of yet. Once the SSW settles down a bit, domestic companies will go ahead and engage in this industry.

Talks have been entered with the SSW for the purchase of another three hundred (300) MUT units to finish the upgrade and equipment program of the 24000 new Serbian soldiers absorbed into the Macedonian military.

The SSW officially recognizes this order and production and shipment will be started immediately. The approximate time for your full order to be fulfilled may be one and a half times as long due to the depleted reserves from your last order. Once Serbia is completely secured, the MUTs will be built there in case of future orders which will in turn reduce the slow productivity rate.

Due to the amount of planes we now have in the PCU Air Force, we are going to semi-retire some planes. However, some are being fully retired.

The IF-1, which is the first plane ever made by any PCU nations, and my first plane too (yikes!) is being retired to training, and will never see combat again.

The GAF-1, which was the second plane built and looked much nicer and more F-22-like will not be retired, but will bumped up to the main fighter of Idaho. It will be armed with JDAMs in the bomb bay, one SWIM-1 or AGSM-1, and then will be topped off with 8 missiles on the hard points in the wings. Since they can only land on land, they will be re-designated as the GAF/G-1.

The GAP-1, which is the third plane made by me, is going to be the main attack plane for the Idaho Air Force. Used in place of GAF-1s, they are slower but have more firepower, so they are more suited for bombing runs, but still have enough punch to escape.

The MAB-1, a bomber that I made in November, will serve as primary bomber. It is not carrier-capable, due to the size. However, that is not a problem with it's huge range. Two AGSM-1s can fit in the bomb bay, or just one SWIM-1. Small missiles are mounted on the wings just in case as well.

The MUP-1, the last plane I built was similar to C-130 in use. For that reason, the C-130s we currently use will be cast away in favor of the MUP-1. Four SWIM-1s can fit in the bay, or six AGSM-1s, making it a very effective bomber. Twenty-five fully armed troops can fit inside of the bay as well, making it useful for troop carrying. Three Humvees will fit in there if wedged. Also, since some heavy tracking equipment was mounted on the top and bottom of the craft, it will serve as an interim AWACS plane until one is actually built.

Note: All planes are not superior to my fellow members planes, and are subject to replacement.

The SSW economic front has hit a rather nice high note with the automobile industry expanding. Most local companies have been making engines, chassis, or wholesome military vehicles sense the Swiss Expansion and now the civilian sales are increasing with wholesome borders a even less restrictions than before on travel. With most of Europe pretty friendly, or at least having good relations, citizens and civilians alike have been driving around the continent. Not only this, but automobiles are increasing in overseas territories as well with the most rapid consumer being the southern African provinces. Hopefully, this will put a few dollars in the budget.

On a more grueling note, the Serbian War has reached a slow crawl as reinforcements are mobilizing to link up with the forces already engaged in combat. The main points of conflict are around railroad junctions and urban areas around them. Saboteurs and snipers are gaining presence. Most aerial units have been withdrawn with little need for them. Most situations have been administered to the SRMA and their urban-based combat units.

In the Czech Republic, SRMA and SRAF units have made great progress in advancing into Prague. With the enemy having to retreat deeper into the city-center every few hours, there seems to be little organization. The country has been labeled as "Secured; minute resistance". Mid-week next week should be the time in which the city is secured and the week after being the time in which it is added as an authorized SSW territory.

Already an official new variant of the Hyperfalcon has been completed. It took a while to finalize the design, and I'm still not entirely satisfied with the sucky colors. Anyway, this new variant will be dubbed the FF-1A Hyperfalcon, while the previous version remains simply the FF-1.

The Prussian Army, along with manufacturing company Henschel, has begun work on it's newest panzer idea. It was originally intended to be mostly just a variant of the King Jagdtiger, but the lack of a turret bothered the top brass. So, the tracks(REAL Lego tracks) shall be modified with more wheels, the body extended, and a new turret will be built. Who knows when it will be completed.

An additional 1,200 Czech POWs were captured today as their morale was broken as precision bombings destroyed dozens of their installations. It's expected that the remnants of the "old" government should surrender early tomorrow as armoured columns mobilize within the capital district(s). Raiders will be flown in tonight to get right within the perimeter and escalate the response.

A bit south, Serbian resistance has bared the teeth and claws of their determination to keep what little they have left. Pockets in the north gained reinforcements from unknown sources and caused a high climb in casualties. The new light gunship prototypes will be flown out tonight for field data and actual combat usage. It will hopefully live up to expectations.

From their, Raider teams dropped in early this morning set up positions around their congressional building. At 1729 hours, the order was given to eliminate the representing president. From there, two minutes later, victory was established. All enemy personnel have surrendered and pocketed resistance has ceased.

Relations with the civilian population in Serbia have been growing strong during the conflict, and now a great majority of the northern individuals have granted enough trust in the SSW forces via giving intelligence about the Serbian regulars and insurgent forces. It's been suspected that at least 66% of enemy forces in the north have been neutralized and at least 75% of their supplies have been depleted. However, southern forces seem to be making a step towards reclaiming a bit of territory. Civilians have been kept in their homes in fear of being attacked and Peacekeepers along the Macedonian boundary have increased casualty rates. The Guerrilla Regiment have been dispatched to eliminated or harass the enemy; this will be their second theatre of combat.

The Serbian Conflict has hit a high resolve today. The SSW governing power gave the final ultimatum, via public broadcast, that allied forces were to utilize massive ordinance displacement (read carpet bombing and undeterred shelling) to any hostile areas after 1200 hours EST today. So far, enemy forces have decreased in resistance by nearly 70% and over 3,400 POWs have been captured. SOFs have been sent across all of Serbia to track down key targets and eliminate/arrest them to be tried for armed infliction of harm to Serbian civilians.

In other news, the first two prototypes of the Utility Air Cushion (UAC) were shipped to the UAE to practice with the training Marine forces and several specialized platoons of the SRMA. Speaking of the UAE, the representative armed forces there have been raised several levels in advanced training in due part to Armenian and internal SSW instructors. The de facto defense force should be ready for combative roles by the end of this month if not sooner.

In Central America, the SSW has passed a bill for shorter intervals in the inspection and repairing of the Panama Canal. Inspection crews are to report to the governing officials every two weeks and repair teams will be sent every four. This should increase the life of the Canal until new additions can be made to it later this winter. New security codes have been proposed as well granted American forces will be traveling more repeatedly through said canal and the assurance that no bodily damage will ever be sustained in the area is a must.

Moving back to Europe, the SSW is greatly interested in the Ukrainian Air Force and was wondering if a joint air school would be out of the question? This would offer more relaxed conduct and a mingling between neighbors. Swiss officials are always looking for the latter granted conflict with superpowers would mean great devastation.

On a not about the AFB, Texas will also be building an Air Force Base wherever Minister Ackroyd so chooses.

To clarify your inquiry, Texas has been of high regards in Swiss eyes since the founding of the SSW. We've hosted mutual political idealism, including the bumping of heads, from the start. If you are making allegations of sarcastic contempt and, more or less, implying that my political aptitude is heinous, then I sadly inform you that you are greatly misguided. You have to remember, I've been here a great deal longer than most of the uprising others. The SSW has stood for policies that do not involve confrontation based upon bias that has been seen in the current stature of later individuals to be accepted into this political hub and will continue to prosper in ways deemed fit to my nation. If you wish you elaborate on your aggressive stance, I'd love to hear it. The Swiss have been peaceful individuals for the longest time and I plan to keep this standard for years to come.

Moving along, the SSW greatly thanks Texas for their hospitality. In terms of equilibrium and the political standardship I just ranted about, the SSW is open to any Texan ideals that need a bit of publication on my part.

It was an economic partnership. Production institutions were applied to ease trade and manufacture what the PCU needed in its early stages.

Also, the Peru campaign is still going on, for those who may have forgot. The rebel numbers have declined drastically after our artillery tanks and air support decided to follow the strategy of "You can never have enough overkill."

The AIS forces have been replaced with fresh troops. 5000 AIS Troops are in Peru now.

# of AIS K.I.A.: 767
# of AIS Wounded: 1198
# of F-37s shot down: 19
# of AH-72s shot down: 45

The AIS is to wind down the campaign soon. The Peru war has been a bloody conflict for the AIS, and was rather unpopular with the people. The AIS citizens are content with membership in the URSA, however.

The Serbian Conflict has been declared resolved as of 2140 hours after two LALA munitions were dropped in high-density enemy areas. The representing general for the Serbian Armed Forces approached a Dutch field officer and officially surrendered. The SSW proper sent officials to make the de facto treaty. The area is now under Martial Law until a governing body can be organized.

It wasn't founded by the SSW. It is a collaborative junction between the naval power (as inherited by Britain) of Scotland, the air supremacy of Rome, and the land war machine of the SSW; everyone was a bit busy, so I made the comment to show that the UNS was founded. This provided a three-pronged perspective and a stable rule of economic prowess. Thus, we have a ruling military power of Western Europe, stable governments, and a vast economic system. The UEN proved ineffective. It was filled with "filler" members. Individuals that randomized their association within it. The UNS started as the three before-mentioned members as a means to protect our direct assets and, granted Rome switched the Oro, a singular economy. The later addition of satellites provides them with the ability to build themselves up with the protection of the UNS "Core" nations. The Baltic Union just recently became sovereign and Prussia wasn't certain upon the course of action; and so it was drafted in. Australia was a territory of Scotland and became sovereign with parliamentary direction to Scotland; and so it was drafted in. And most recently, Macedonia has come to power as a promising nation, but with few external outlets for resources and military proposal; and so it was drafted in. And I know this is more so a backstory rather than an explanation, but the case and point of the matter is that the UEN was a Euro-exclusive pact that offered little prowess other than the ability to bump heads. Plus, many nations within the UEN had already created sub-division treaties that undermined the UEN, for lack of a better word, constitution. The UNS on the other hand is a centralized unit of power with united political aspects. And I will heavily note that all members of the UNS are voluntary members and do not have to stay within it.

Idaho Defense Leaders have revised the proposals for new vehicles and have come out with four main priorities.

1. An attack helicopter. The one built long ago, the LAH-1, was fairly worse than I would have liked, and had little armament. Now, the helicopter will be bigger, and have more guns.

2. A transport helicopter. Our first two versions, the HAH-1, and the HLH-1. The former, was a direct copy of the Coast Guard helicopter. The latter was rather a huge box. Now, we are going to try make a Blackhawk-like helicopter, but we probably will end up remaking it.

3. A Light Reconnaissance Vehicle. We need one, as we currently have none. Awe made one, though it might not be in actual production, and I also thought it was too small. I am going to try and make a good sized one.

4. A gunboat. Though it isn't a priority, it is already partially built. It will assist in beach landings, fleet protections, and harbor protections.

I would weep a thousand tears, except I do that anyway because of faulty tear ducts. And conflicting opinions? What would these be?

From our side of the border, everything seems to be in line here. If you're referring to recent events about the SSW, I have had no part in that. I can't stop people under my command from talking, but I can stop them from action. Except that one time in east Russia... But Nick was new.

And Michael hasn't been pushed aside. We still listen to him, when he speaks. He's just really busy, like you said. If he came here and told us to stop taking over islands, we'd do it, because as independant as we seem, we're not even a vassal state of Alaska.

Can't go wrong with reduced prices. Granted the SSW hasn't been able to produce a jet of its own, another order of 20 Su-51s would fill up the gaps we have.

Also, as it has been pointed out that an armed conflict is soon to ensue, I point otherwise. Although the SSW has granted its interests directly to Texas, we're still open to diplomacy. I think it's quite obvious that if the Euro-Texan Interests Pact was to envelope a new war, the SSW would have cut off all of its waters (i.e. Panama and coastal areas) and had the PCU remove itself from the ports in Europe. It'd be rather blind-sighted to not do so otherwise. Please keep this in mind.

Would you prefer me to ship your aircraft to Texas, or will you send pilots to Kiev to train in them? Your aircraft come fully loaded with ammunition, the Tu-225s on a standard Air-to-ground payload consisting of 130mm Anti-Tank missiles and bombs, as well as 1,700 rounds of 30mm ammunition and 1,000 50 cal shells. (All but the centerline gun and wingmounted minigun have been deleted due to inneficiency. The tail-turret has also been removed and the feul tank has been elongated to fill the gap.) The Su-51s come with an Air-to-air load of six Vympel R77 Adder missiles and 700 rounds of 30mm ammunition.

I'll have mine be trained, and I would like to ask you if you would like for me to build you a Ukrainian embassy/city in the mainland of Texas, if you like I can also furnish it with and air-force base and give it several missile defense systems.

I would weep a thousand tears, except I do that anyway because of faulty tear ducts. And conflicting opinions? What would these be?


How about the Peruvian terrorists WE funded to kill Gus and/or Sammy? Hmmm? Sound unstable to anyone else?

The Air Force Base will definitely be greatly appreciated. For the Embassy, it is up to you. In the event that war does break out, the money might be needed for other purposes.
For the Airforce Base, I would like to be able to land a fighter force of at least 100 aircraft. Ukraine will help cover the cost of this base, and if you don't mind, I would like to furnish Ukrainian technology, (radars, communication devices, defense systems, scanners, communication devices, etc.) This will enable Ukranian aircraft to operate to full efficiency without modification.

I remember you mentioning that, but I said no to it. I'm not betraying my own. And it was Brazilians, not Peruvians. We both wanted to invade Brazil, but our side never got around to it. You did. Get the facts straight please.

Sure you can install your technology, in the meantime I will begin uploading the latest TexDef technology, the UA-VTOL.

Oh really? We'll have to see. I would never just betray people like that, for political reasons, as well as existing personal ones. I don't suffer from chronic backstabbing disorder or anything.

Edit: Is that the PCU Governators mail you're talking about? If so, I was not sure what you were talking about there. You just titled it and said "How bout them terrorists?" Not exactly the most clear of intentions there.

No response has been received from the Irish government. Scottish Royal Marine forces have landed on the northern and southern coasts of Ireland. No Irish military forces have been engaged at this time, but the IRA has proved to be quite a problem when moving through towns/cities. Pamphlets explaining Scotland's reasons for invading and how the Irish peoples' government has abandoned them (propaganda anyone?), will be dropped over all populated areas in order to reduce resistance to a minimum. If the Irish military does not fully engage our forces, Scottish air-assault (heli/paratroops/SOFs) troops will be dropped into the capital to take over the government buildings. If substantial progress is made in a short enough time period, then regular ground forces will take the government sector of the capital. Scotland would like to ask the SSW to state its military involvement for reference. The only casualties sustained so far have been from IRA resistance; exact numbers are currently classified.

The SSW is indeed currently involved in Ireland. 5,000 Dutch and German Marines are currently the only ones actually dispatched with allied forces, but an additional 15,000 are on reserve and/or on their way to the beaches. Peacekeepers will ensue after the Scottish forces to secure any displaced civilians and reduce the strain on Scottish forces if need be. Also, if allowed, the SSW would like to swing around the island to land on the mid-west coasts of Ireland to create a wedge. Thus, if retaliation occurs, a swift mechanized movement will allow for compressed enemy movement and faulty retreat lines.

If it's OK with you, I would like to station fighters at one of your AFBs while my airport is under construction. If you would prefer, I could take an exsisting airport and modify it to fit my needs. This will cut time and cost by at least half. It will probably take a while to construct an Air Force Base, so I would like somewhere to station some fighters while it's under construction.

Canada isn't the one seemingly preparing for war because of one lone comment. I still suggest we all stand down. Maybe even make that Union of Flowers you joked about when I said I wouldn't attack you. Thank the 9000 toasters for Nick being our middle man...

FOR THE FOLLOWING TWO DAYS, I WILL BE IN JUNEAU GETTING STICHES REMOVED, AND WILL NOT HAVE GUARANTEED INTERNET ACCESS.
Eight Su-51s, 20 MiG-67s, 3 Ka-65s and 24 Tu-225s have been flown to Texas, along with their crews. This force will be strengthened once Goodfellow AFB is renovated, but for now this will do.

As an act of heritage, the SSW has passed a series of policies in which all pre-WWII establishments must be kept intact under federal law. This will ensure that all structures of historical significance will be preserved for years to come.

Another set of policies was set out today that reduces the amount of legalized urban sprawl. A great deal of inefficiency has been noted in the late 20th century and early 21st century. These policies mainly deal with the deconstruction of building not under utilization and the reselling of that lot by the federal government back onto the civil market. Hopefully, this will keep the agricultural lands open and the city centers where they should be.

A new highway has also passed billing to be built in the Africa nations under SSW power. The Trans-African Highway will stretch all of the southern African territories, including Angola, and should open up a quicker route of transport. Although South Africa is highly developed, many African nations still have cheaply-constructed road systems. Hopefully some German charm can rub off on them to help this area prosper as an autonomous unit of government. Also, two new military ports will be opened in Equatorial Guinea.

In military news, the rest of the SSW forces promised to Scotland for their expansion have been noted to have landed with allied forces. They'll be under direct influence from Scottish forces and will hopefully serve has a utilitarian task force. Most of these troops are the British forces kept in service under SSW power as well as troops from the SAP.

We've had that in Portland for years now, since like the 80s. Works well, and it's funny to see apartments a mile from farmland.

The SSW and Macedonia have engaged in what has been dubbed the Joint Naval Agreement (JNA). This will allow Macedonia access to SSW's international, but more so the Euro-domestic, shipyards and trading of naval craft without flawed tariffs and the like. The first act of this will be the trade of Macedonia's new "Marathon"-class submarines for the upcoming Swiss hovercraft dubbed the UAC (Utility Air Cushion).

At 2100 hours EST, the SSW will be launching Operation: Eyot. This will be the invasion of Maldives to be included into the SSW territories as the last autonomous area to be conquered by Swiss forces. Propaganda flyers have already been launched, but no response can be assured granted forces haven't actually landed. Internal militants (read as spies) have told officials that the southern grouping seems to hold a positive looking towards the SSW. In any case, the main threat will be the highly effective Coast Guard, but MCAP flights should make short work of these ships before the Marines make their landing. Ships have been nearing the archipelago over the past week during the UAE training exercises which offered perfect charter protection. Macedonian troops are also falling en suite with the SSW Marines during this operation and will be seeing their first overseas conflict. Within three weeks, the islands should be captured.

Dutch and German Marines landed on the Raa Atoll, Baa Atoll, Lhaviyani Atoll, and Meemu Atoll yesternight. The first three being in the north of Maldives and the latter is in the southern portion of the isles. MCAPs were able to disable at least 38% of the enemy Coast Guard/Navy, but had to withdraw early due to harsh weather conditions; this also means only 42% percent of the Marines were able to land. Still, the allied forces were able to capture the southern island group with ease, whereas the northern isles show pocketed resistance. The first group of armour will be landing later this evening.

In other news, the SSW passed another billing known as the Robotic Mechanization Act. This will increase the spending for drones and other robotic systems in the SSW military. Hopefully, this should pull a few boys out from the fronts and on the reserved notice.

After much delay and backsets, the shipyards of Astoria of produced a new vessel, the Columbia-class Aircraft Carrier. The Columbia-class destroyer will now be covertly re-named. We're not sure what happened to the American carriers, but none of them appear to be in PCU territories, and seeing as how we lacked a dedicated... what's the word, supercarrier? A dedicated supercarrier, we built our own: http://www.flickr.com/photos/thenotsogreat/4452079147/

It's big, it's a mini (model wise), and we have one. The next will be complete... in a long time.

The Baltic Union is in the process of designing a whole new fleet of land vehicles, beginning with the ISV-2 and FSV-1 already posted. projects planned include a new tank, and many other pieces of equipment.

On a side note, now that we control the Finnish waters, we're going to embark on a plan I've been itching to try. We plan to raise the shipwrecked ferry Estonia, and finally find out what sent her to the bottom. Was it a Russian sabotage like conspiracy theories state, or just a mechanical failure that sent it to the bottom all those years ago? We hope to find out.
