Noting German support, Austrian diplomats are quick to travel to Tiraque, they hope to open dialogue with leaders of the nation on military cooperation between the two nations. However, Tiraque’s membership in the Triple Alliance is seen as a last resort. Given the defensive nature of the alliance with Italy and Germany, the Austrians feel secure in endeavors in the east. Austrian diplomats in Berlin also agree that the Russian army is extremely clumsy and ill equipped to fight the industrial powers of both Austria and Germany.
That being said, Austria can never be too prepared for war on her doorstep. Germany is asked to send military advisors to Austria to oversee and approve of training, specifically those with proficiency in Czech and Polish as well as German to oversee the new Royal Austrian Polish and Czech divisions. A military exercise is done in Ruthenia near Lemberg to deter Russian encroachment in the north, and a detachment of 10,000 soldiers is sent to Ternopol.
Tiraque also is offered shipments of 1,000 Schwarzlose machine guns, as well as 1,500 Mannlicher–Schönauer bolt action rifles to better equipped Tiraque forces. For market value prices however. Tiraque
To reassure the Italians of Austrian obligations to their alliance, Italian diplomats are told that the Austrian crown vehemently understands that the terms of the treaty do not oblige Italy to intervene at all in a conflict with Russia.
President Josh Boodon welcomes support from the alliance.
"thank you for your support and I understand not wanting to get involved and Tiraque doesn't want a war but the people of Tiraque are done and want true independence from and be its own true nation separate from Russia. because we are done with the smoke and mirrors and we will start our independence by changing the name of our country we are now the the United Republic of Tiraque to show unity of the parties and to show that the Armed Republic of Tiraque partys power is now void they hold no power in our government and they will either go to Russia or stay in Tiraque out of the government this is final now I leave it up to Russia on there next decision and we are willing to fight for our independence this is not a declaration of war this is a fact"
General Matrinov waits patiently for any declaration of war and helps escort individuals of the ARTP and other corrupt officials from the DSTP.
“Although we hope that the promise of Austrian support is enough to dismay Russia of any invasion, we shall make post haste to guarantee the independence of Tiraque from Russia as to proclaim a conflict a defensive war.” The Austrian diplomat hastily writes the terms to a defensive alliance with Tiraque. German observers are also called to sign in the treaty.
The treaty details:
“In the event of a defensive war between Russia and Tiraque, both Germany and Austria shall come to the defense of Tiraque. However, Tiraque is not obligated to come to war if France should declare war on either Germany or Austria. The Austro-Hungarian Empire shall also further publicly notify Russia of the intentions to protect the sovereignty of Tiraque as to dissuade Great Britain from a possible obligation to go to war if France is called in. Furthermore, Austria shall help to the best of her abilities to supply weapons and ammunition to Tiraque, as well as artillery machinery to help modernize and equip the Tiraque military.”
It is also explicitly stated that the treaty is separate of the Triple Alliance, and will only detail a war with Russia. Austrian officials in the Russian Empire prepare to inform Nicholas II of the guarantee should it go through. The League of Lezha

[ibThe Grand Imperial Herald[/i] All hail, all hail for the ringing of the bells! Roughly 4 years ago, a relatively young 28 year old Crown Prince Timothy Augustus Von Roma assumed the throne and became our glorious new Tsar. He has since reigned as a bachelor, and the women of the nation waited with baited breath, wondering to themselves if they might be so lucky as to catch the affections of the Tsar. One can just imagine than, that finding a woman who was genuine and not interested in just becoming Tsarina is quite difficult for the Tsar. With that in mind, it is the pleasure of The Grand Imperial Herald to be personally asked by the Tsar himself to announce this to the public of the Tsardom of Texas, and to our allies in Kaiserreich that you can release your breath! Tsar Timothy Augustus Von Roma has chosen his Tsarina! She will be known Katarina Gárdisták Von Roma. The couple has, for several years now, been in secret communication and courtship. As of now, they have not yet released more information, and it remains to be seen if they will. Thank you for reading this brief announcement by The Grand Imperial Herald. Your source for the goings on of Csaszari Varos.
RP: The German Empire German diplomats in Austria agree to the terms and sign the treaty, with German Military advisors already being sent to Austria to oversee training as requested by Austrian diplomats. That being said, they were sure to also send an advisor on his way to Tiraque to help train and increase their armed forces should the conflictt continue to escalate.
Following that, to help further equip Tiraques armed forces for battle, they are offered 1,200 Gewehr 98's, 700 MG 08's aswell as 100 7.7 cm FK 96 n.A. field guns that were all expected to be shipped and delivered to Tiraque in the coming weeks.
Military exercises began at the end of October, in the German provinces of Posen and Schleisen as a warning to Russian Aggression. Tens of thousands of troops also march westward, along the border with France and Belgium since if the crisis was to escalate, France's involvement would be likely.

The unexpected response that came from the Triple alliance complicated things greatly for the Russian Empire. Their poorly veiled threat to Tiraque's sovereignty didn't go unnoticed and definitely wasn't expected to be met with any response from the major powers of Europe. Russian diplomats argue that Tiraque falls under their sphere of influence and therefore voiced their disapproval of the recent actions of Austria and Germany. However, the Russian Empire opted to stand down... for the time being at least since the combined force of the Triple Entente would pose a significant threat at the moment.

Since his plane was not designed for the task of bombing, and his improvised attacks on Ottoman positions had little impact. These picric acid-filled steel spheres were nicknamed "ballerinas" from the fluttering fabric ribbons attached.

DECEMBER NEWS BULLETIN
The Collapse of the Qing Dynasty? Taking advantage of a weakened Qing Dynasty in the wake of the Xinhai revolution, Outer Mongolia, is declared independent from the Chinese Empire. Outside observers believe this revolution could very well bring about the end of the Manchu-led Qing dynasty and the collapse of China.
General Matrinov makes his own speech in the capital about the situation "Hello people of Tiraque we have finished our construction on our navy and we thank the support from Austria-Hungary and Germany in this time. Now the Russian empire has shown the distaste for our independence front and center and showing the measures they will go to keep us a puppet under the Tsar because when we removed the corrupt officials working for Russia and removed them they had no power over us and our expansion of wanting to be safe annoyed him so much they moved military to silence us and make us a state under him and we will not stand for that anymore we do not want war but if it is necessary for our independence we will fight this is a warning to that ineffective leader they call a tsar to stand down that is it for this speech"
He walks off the stage going to visit President about the next actions in this stressful time.
