Today the federal goverment continued to press the local military of the collapsed keowan federation. Early yesterday the federal department of the army realesed the gladius howitzer to the enemy, the beowulf munitions sent shockwaves down the enemies spine, causing further panic. At 7:00 am a full armored force of Crossbow IFVs moved into the nation striking at the enemy troops, and unloading our own. By 10:00 am we gained control of the nations military structures, including airfields, bases, and depots.
Remaining military hierarchy have surrendered.

Aid was shipped into the country by alliance convoys. The scattered remains of there military is expected to cave into the pressure.

Today the federal goverment announced that the
department of the army has begun preparing for the large scale annexation of the entire former keowan federation. This task is not to be taken without much preperation, and we are building up military forces. We plan on finishing the task in roughly 1-4 months time.
There are six remaining fractured "nation states" of the collapsed nation.

T-170, T-171, T-172, and T-173 are controlled by four military remnent groups, of the former army. They have lost communications with the rest of the world, and dont have any solid leaderhip. They are well equipped, but are cowards, and are not organized.

T-166, and T-167 The southern area is controlled by terrorist groups, The PLI are a middle eastern culture who are not organized, they are fanatics who use terrorism to gain power. The fourth reich is a very organized group based of a culture of violence. They use old style weapons, and are dangerous lunitics.

The desert climate of the vast part of the land is being looked at, along with the cold northern area.

We do not plan of incorparating the keowan military into our own, they will be disbanded.

MR. Squid,

On what date do you anticipate planting your next flag? Where will you start?

The PRN National Geographical Society just wants to keep their maps accurate.

That has yet to be released, when we feel we are ready we will begin from there, the republics geography experts can wait for now.

Today in the coalition, the department of the army has announced that 2 new vehicles have been completed. The first one is the M-750 Parthian, its unlike the regular trucks used before the war, and more like a fusion of a military Volvo truck "the ones that have flat fronts", and a standard flatbed.

The front half is armored, with veiwing ports, and the back part is a small flatbed, although the storage area extends into the hull.
This was designed to be versatile with diferent variants, as the armored hull could be used with the flatbed to support mounted weapons. The standard cargo version is only designed to be lightly armored.

The second variant is a dedicated AA system.
Its comprised of a 50mm gattling gun, or an AA missile launcher, linked with a long range radar system, they usually work in a pair of both. This version is more protected, but not against any sort of armor.

Lastly a Light Armored Reconnaissance Vehicle, or a scout car, is finished, but Im not that happy with it at the moment.

I have to say I had a lot of fun making these, I figured I would. The thing that usually helps is incorporating unique designs into the trucks, so they are diferent than every other truck on the pages. I plan on making a fuel variant if I have the parts to.

...In other news mopping up space 174 has begun, The war is over but some sparse pockets of resistance remains. These are mostly terrorist cells, as goverment troops have disbanded from the area. The artillery cannot engage these type of soldiers, who operate in dense urban areas, so black ops have been sent to mop them up. They have been effective, and nearly all the cells leaders have been killed. Four have been captured and sent to a super max facility for interrogation.

The ministry of the treasury has realesed the latest stats from the war, it cost just under half a million dollars, we expect to recover by mid october.

Lastly news polls have stated the the nations education system is getting more effective, and six out of every seven young adults are considering college.

more news can be expected.

The confederation of Gaufran has announced its first tank since it's 100 year arms ban following the great war of 1908. In secret development, the MBT 3 Tyrant is rumoured to have third generation chobbham armor and a gun capable of firing conventional and rocket propelled munitions. Best estimates place it at around 65 tons but the only thing yet revealed is that it has a revolutionary supercharged twin diesel engine package, devoloping 1850 bhp. one thing that is clear is that Gaufranian tank manufacturing skills are as good as ever

Today in the Coalition, at 1:00 am the federal government ordered a heavy artillery strike on T-173, part of the former keowan federation,
The new Paladin NLOS struck a heavy hit against
weapons depots, and military shelters. Gladius artillery also was part of the attack. Shelling stopped at 2:00 pm.
There are also some rumors of prototype stealth aircraft dropping fuel air bombs on an enemy biofuel refinery in the northern ice sheets, this cannot be confirmed, but multiple sources state a weather balloon must have landed near a few power lines, or something.

In other news multiple new weapons have been posted, and Parthian AA systems have begun being set up near military bases, a network of radar instillations is being constructed.

Lastly 2 army divisions have mobilized to our northern border, its likely part of the colonization plan of the collapsed keowan federation.

Today in the Coalition, more news has been leaked about the feds new stealth bomber. The top secret Templar aircraft has been in use since 1998, and has seen limited use in covert ops. Its was released officially when it was seen flying overhead by 4000 civilians, after it was deemed to risky to drop bombs on them, dang hippies with there new age music.
Now that the 12 craft have been added to our stats, we expect to make 2 dozen more by this time next month.

In other news Artillery continued to shell the territory of keowan, and a full military assault is planned after this more powerful sector is softened.
General Lance "bulldog" Richardson commander of the 1rst army division announced that he is exited that our new hardware will recive field testing under warzone conditions. The enemy is known to use a few small hybrid gun trucks, and technicals. They also have a supply of fuel from plants made before the collapse, yet they remain unorganized.

Tongoria is in need of ships. If the PRN's hybrid-ship offer is still valid, we are willing to accept it. All of our vehicles can be traded, so choose one and we will figure it out.

Commander Sylvan,
10 Transports for 20 Tsankas will do. Lets call that a done deal!

If you could post a Tsanka with an air defense turret, A gun/missiles combo with its own radar then I would trade 10 more D-Sail for 20 of those as well.

I will be watching for the ADA variant!
Actually, I made a cool AA turret for my Conqueror and it perfectly fits your requirements. If LDD won't freeze I will put them together.

The battle in T-53 is finally coming to an end as the Entadorian forces put their weapons down after taking serious casulties during this short war. They were outnumbered and their weapons were not up to date.

In the next days both countries will negotiate in the Entadorian city, Hjutang, about the details of the peace treaty. Our goal is to rebuild the Union, after the countries being separated for almost 50 years. Of course, after that, both countries will be renamed. It will be called the Tongorian Union.

We are planning to invade T-49 to control and rebuild the canal there. It is a relatively small country compared to us with only a small army, but first, we need to heal our wounds.

Also, there's a lot of vehicles being designed as of now. Currently, we want to establish a powerful navy force and after that, we will start the mass production of new ground vehicles.

Early today in the Coalition the Federal goverment announced after a few weeks that the order to move into T-173, a collapsed former keowan federation state, has been given. It was decided that our national dept
was non existant, and the war could continue.
at 1:00 pm a full armored forced moved into the nation, Tank battalions quickly rushed to seize key military bases, airfields, and other important military centers.

At around 4:00 pm a small band of soldiers attacked Coalition forces in San alamos, enemy troops destroyed several tons of fuel before being surrounded, and gunned down. Little fighting contines.

In other news to much suprise the Federal goverment has hired General industries to build a new tank prototype, codename Dragonett,
the tank is now finished and going through testing stage with the army.
The tank will most likely be replacing the 11 year old Claymore tanks by 2020, but some think that the Claymores smaller size could be
usefull as a light tank, the new tank is roughly 59 tons, while the claymore is roughly 48. Its not light but it can be more easly transported.

Today in the Coalition, the war against T-173 continues to run smoothly, the department of the army has pushed further into the nation, in a shock and awe campain. Early yesterday a few enemy soldiers got a hold of dirty fuel made before the Collapse, and managed to try and pull a counter offencive. The enemy was pinned down by gun fire, and our tanks quickly overtook them.

In the southern area, most of the cities are under our control. The Capitol of the whole nation fell under our grasp early today, as the enemy dug in extra deep. After two days of fighting all enemy soldiers where wiped out, the bulk of there forces have fallen, but the fighting continues up north.

In other news General Lance Richardson was givin praise for the annexation of the last three territories, and the capture of the Federations capitol. In a years time he might be sworn in as the new Chief of staff.

The Zexo Industries released a new picture of their upcoming MBT, which outclasses the Conqueror. Tongorian army is thinking of using these tanks as they feature an all-around better protection and use newer fire-control system (not to mention it looks cooler:D) http://mocpages.com/image_zoom.php?mocid=344590&id=/user_images/31449/1351186311m

Today in the coalition, the chief of staff Duncan O' Conner announced that army generals Felix Roxbury, and Lance Richardson have completely overtaken enemy troops in T-173.
two divisions equipped with the militaries newest weapons engaged the Keowan soldiers with shock and awe tactics.
The enemies main drive in the fight was the reserves of dirty fuel, they managed to employ light vehicles, and technical’s to fight us, but the federal government of Cheyenne just had superior armor, and weapons. Paladin howitzers where quite effective with our current lack of an air force, and light armored vehicles, and supply trucks made mobilizing infantry quite easier.

At 12:34 PM today the keowan military in control of T-173 issued a notice of surrender, and enemy troops have turned in all of there weapons. They have been promised humane treatment, and are being sent to makeshift camps for processing. Each one will be released after this weekend if we decide they are ready to function in the Coalition, a select few might make it into our army if they are well trained, and show loyalty.

The department of the army is also very exited about the new Dragonett prototype that was shipped from Sioux falls to Newark air force base for test trails. The new tanks sleek ceramic composite armor could deflect RPG size weapons, not to mention its 360 degree APS for disabling enemy missiles. The new tank out performed the Claymore in terms of protection, and firepower. It is planned to go under the designation Claymore 2A4- and will most likely be equipped with even more advanced technology. The claymore 1 will remain in service until 2024.
The Claymore 1 is roughly 10 tons lighter, and is more easily transported, not to mention that it costs much less. The original costs 3 million dollars, while the 2A4 costs 6.2 million. This will make the newest tanks in shorter numbers, since the older tanks still perform wonderfully, despite the new one being superior.
The Claymore 1 will be available for trade if a nation qualifies.

In other news the epidemic in the nation of T-129 is considered a large threat to the nation. We are wondering if samples of the new strain can be shipped to Cheyenne for Alliance testing.

T-49 is finally belongs to us. The army encountered only a small resistance as the country didn't have any armored vehicles, mainly trucks and technicals. Our tanks quickly took out them with ease. The country's popularion is in a really bad condition. We are currently shipping over humanitarian aid packages and setting up hospitals. Right now there's no sign of that new virus, the small pox.

In two weeks, our army will be ready to move again. It will hit the country right next to the us, T-75. It will be a buffer zone for the motherland from northern attacks.

Fresh from it's recent occupation and reintegration of East Anchuria, the Conglomerate has officially announced it's intentions of establishing a series of Navy and Airforce bases on many of the islands encompassed in the island territories of 181 and 183. These island chains once belonged to Anchuria, but after the Great Civil War it East Anchuria was unable to continue occupying this territory. The island chains are now only lightly occupiued with much of the old infastructure deteriorating.

The Conglomerate plans to send a naval and marrine taskforce to occupy the most important islands in the region, with a followup by civilian and cargo transports to ship over much needed supplies. It is our plan to bring the Conglomerate's order and goverment back to these regions while at the same time exspanding our global influence.

Sorry, I didn't read carefully. The Wessby-class is not for trade as it uses highly-advanced Tongorian stealth technology.

The Tongorian Union's final decision on the offered stealth bombers is the Conglomerate SB-11 Ghost.

The Lok-class ship was uploaded two weeks ago, so the first one is ready for trading.

In other News the federal goverment upon hearing of the Conglomerates push westward ordered an immediate naval build up. This shocking news disturbed quite a few polititions who prefer to stay isolated from other modern nations. Although most people see the Conglomerate as trade partners, and not hostile, the news of another nation having airbases, and naval yards in striking distance from our cities is very disturbing to most.

more than 10 new ships are planned to be released by this coming wednesday, along with our newest marine corp weapons.

To be clear we dont mind the Conglomerate in the Pacific, we just dont take chances, and a naval buildup, to have ships patrol our waters is the solution.

Due to the airtrade ban in 1989, Templar bombers are off limits to any nation.

A naval task force composed of 18 Domination Class Cruisers of various types, 6 Conlgomerate-Class Amphibious Assualt Ships, 2 Stealth Cruisers, and the 80% of our shipping fleet with the core 15 MF-900 Cargo Ship included were dispatched early this morning towards the island chain in teritory 181. Two of our assualt ships are in carrier format, with 10 each of our STOL NF-19 Hurricanes, with the rest carrying a mix of soldiers and equipment.

The task force will split up and land on the biggest islands of the Santa Lutari Island Chain in territory 181, most likely at the old naval ports. It is exspected that most of the inital work will be focussed on repairing and upgrading the ports and naval facilites to improve our ability to ship supplies in, with a secondary on repairing the San Antonia airport, which is currently evaluated as unsafe for aircraft to attempt to land on. Once we manage to get this facilty fixed up, steadly flights of cargo aircraft are exspected to innitiate. We have already contacted what remains of the island's goverment, and while initially wary to the idea of Conglomerate rule, with a little persuasion they have no come to agree with our position.

After reading up on stealth bomber cost vs amphibious assualt ships cost, it would seem the B2 costs over two billion while the most exspensive amphibs only cost up to 1 billion. It should also be noted that as the rules are set up, stealth bomber production is faster than apmhibs. I'm not sure how we should trade, because if you wanted, say, 12 bombers, if we were exchanging them at equal amount of worth, this would result in 24 amphibs which is of course unreasonable. On the other hand, by game mechanics stealth bombers can be built at a ratio of 12:1 per aphib, which would be an insanely good deal for the naval power if this was real life. Perhaps we could trade 12 bombers for 3 assualt ships?
