Just a bit about me, I enjoy photography, kayaking, canoeing, shooting sports, skiing, camping, science, and obviously lego. I mostly build modern US Military vehicles (like tanks, planes, etc...) but I make other stuff sometimes for fun or out boardroom.
-I'm a TFOL and therefore in high school.
-I would like to be an aerospace engineer (dream job is working for skunk works at lockheed martin) or an aeronautical engineer at Electric boat.
-I live in the USA in Rhode Island
I WILL NOT MOD OR USE PSUDEOBRANDS (brick arms, mega blocks, etc...). I'm a strict pursuit builder after some disastrous modding attempts.
Also find me on Flickr (though its more for archival purposes right now)
Back Story Time:
The year is 2017. The United States is beginning a new era of growth and prosperity after a dramatic reform of government spending. Soon after the reform, the discovery of the Source 1 mine in northern Alaska provided the U.S. with unprecedented amounts of gold. With plenty of spending money, the U.S. military was given a major upgrade. Over $30 trillion in government contracts allowed for the creation of dozens of new systems. DARPA, Speartip Industries, Skunk Works, and other Research and Development companies used their funding to investigate technologies like railguns, lasers, space flight, invisibility, synthetic metals, and fusion power. The U.S. readopted Monroe Doctrine and tried to shake its reputation as "world cop".
On the other side of the world, China also experienced a radical reform. A new leader was chosen who wanted to expand China's global influence and forge alliances with the rest of the world. He demanded that the U.S. pay off its long held debts to China, which was quickly done due to the huge treasury the U.S. had built up. With U.S. debts repaid, the Chinese expanded their military 200% and their exports gained 700% in only eight months. Not everyone was happy with the reform though. Several super-nationalist generals secretly supply arms, troops, and training to nations hostile to the U.S. in hopes of harassing the U.S. into complete isolationism.
The little known country of Turkmenistan experienced an economic boom when a vein of platinum was discovered in the northern mountains. Simultaneously, a rebellion overthrew the former government and replaced it with fanatical triumvirate. The new government put its newly found resources into nuclear research. After only a year, they had acquired more than 4,500 operational nuclear warheads. After a direct threat the launch a massive nuclear strike against the U.S., the American President ordered a full scale invasion. After a year of continuous fighting against the Turkmenistanian Peoples Army (TPA), only 753 of the warheads have been found. This is one of the countries the rouge Chinese Generals have been supplying with arms and troops.

Just one last note, to any nationality I have as a hostile faction, I mean no disrespect, I do not mean to condemn anyone or offend anyone, I just need to have a realistic and believable political arena.
