The Republic of Tereshkova

RP: The Thunder of Guns

Within the Capitol at Khovostov, there was yet another debate: this time on the military. It was always brought up at some point or another, but the fact was thus: the Tereshkovan military was no world presence. With several hundred men and outdated equipment, the most they could threaten were the sea lions that frequented their coastline. President Śvitsolja saw fit to hold legislation on the topic, but naught but banter ensued...

"Why bother increasing funds to the military? It's not as if we're under threat. No one has batted an eye over Tereshkova's existence for over 50 years, so why worry now?"

"No, no, no, that isn't going far enough! We should abolish the military entirely!"

"Are you mad? A country with no military is as good as an excavator with no drill. While we're at it, let's just put up a sign on our border that says 'please invade me' why don't we?"

"You loose cannons are all too trigger happy to realize the benefit here! A nation with no military is no threat, which means no incentive for other nations to attack us. With no military, we also ensure that it can't be turned on our civilian populace! Once we remove the armed forces, nations will flock to us for economic deals free of threat!"

"I'll have whatever he's on."

"If you don't provoke the wasp, it won't sting you."

"Tell that to my thumb."

President Śvitsolja buried her head in her hands. Every time a meeting like this was held, the same thing happened. Endless ranting and arguments with no real ground gained one way or another. "These people would argue over doughnuts if given the chance," she thought to herself. At last, without opening her eyes, she raised her hand for silence. Though it took a moment, the room quieted down to let her speak, for she had been silent the entire meeting.

"Ladies, gentlemen, ministers, secretaries... peace. We can bicker like schoolchildren for the rest of the livelong day, or we can lower our ire and put our heads together. Each and everyone of you is entitled to your opinion, and is free to share it. However, please, please be civil about it... for a democracy to work, we must cooperate. I'm not saying you have to agree with everything someone you're arguing against is saying, but please do not let it escalate to the point where you are arguing for the sake of arguing."

The room was silent for a moment, before one person spoke: "Sorry, madame President."

"Thank you. Now that we have sorted that out, I believe it is time to adress the task at hand, yes?" The room nodded. "Very good. I shall share my opinion, and we can decide as a group how best to handle the matter. Is everyone in agreement?" Another nod. Splendid. It is my belief that we should increase funding for the military, at least in part. Tereshkova has not been involved in an international conflict in 50 years, and if you recall your history classes, we only emerged victorious because we were on the winning side. Our military is outdated and underfunded. We rely on 700 men and women to defend our borders, with a few dozen old tanks and aircraft. Our navy is the best funded portion of our military, and even in this aspect we only possess four battleships. The world around us is wrapped in a state of chaos and confusion. Our neutral foreign affairs policy will only do us so much good if a nation decides we are their enemy. I advise we overhaul the armed forces. Modern equipment, more advertising for recruitment, and more frequent training operations. In this aspect we can turn to other nations for aid, though we will be partnered only in transaction. Nothing more, nothing less."

The group discussed and debated the idea, and agreed upon the course of action the President supplied, with some modifications. The meeting adjourned, and everyone returned to their duties.

OOC: So, tl;dr is that Tereshkova is seeking to buff its military due to the rather violent state of the world, and needs supplies. Tanks, weapons, equipment, aircraft, boats, military advisors... things of that ilk. Note that Tereshkova, in keeping with its foreign affairs policy, is not looking for an alliance or trade, just transaction.

The Steel Legion of Archron Empire

Artaecus wrote:RP || Artaecus: Life Extension Program

    The Artaecusian Government has allocated funding to further improve existing equipment as part of the new Life Extension Program (LEP) which is centered around making all existing equipment in service relevant and maintain their overmatch capabilities. A total of five billion Kalros has been set aside to ensure the program runs smoothly, with contracts already being awarded to companies such as Artae-Tek and ArcJet Systems.

    The first upgrade being introduced is for the M8's in active service. The weight of the vehicle has been significantly reduced from 68 tons to 65 tons with the latest metallurgy and weight-saving techniques to existing modules. The Gas Turbine has seen significant improvements to both range and lifespan, allowing the vehicle to loosen the restriction on the engine governer for a top speed of 90km/h. With the introduction of JP-8, the improvements done to the lifespan and fuel efficiency is almost doubled.

    All onboard thermal imaging and night-vision systems have been upgraded to their new 4th generation versions. Fire Control Systems have been upgraded with 99% hit probability against stationary targets and 98% against targets on the move. Ammunition datalink has been further improved with the introduction of the newest generation of APFSDS and GLATGM's which are capable of defeating APS.

    Armor has been reworked with the introduction of Shtora X Modular Armor Package. Intergration of Malachit Dual-Explosive Reactive Armor has allowed the vehicle to save 1.5 tons in armor, while also increasing its effectiveness to 3000mm of RHA equivalent on the turret which supersedes existing foreign tanks such as the T-72B3 models by 200%. Malachit has also been intregated into the modular side armor blocks in the hull to further increase protection against tandem shaped-charge warheads. Anti-radar coating of the exterior has been improved to reduce the vehicle signature by a further 20%, with further improvements to the magnetic proximity fuze jamming by increasing its effective range from 10m to 20m. This variant of the M8 has been dubbed the M8A4, and will be replacing all active service M8A2's and M8A3's.

    The second notable upgrade will be given to the battle-hardened F/A-23. Majority of the upgrades given is classified, but a general outline on the improvements has been given to the press:

    The radar-absorbant coating on the exterior, engine, targetting software, radar and subsystems has been improved but the extent is unspecified. These new F/A-23's will be given the Block 10/12 designation and all existing F/A-23's will be upgraded to the new variant.

RP || Archron Empire: Relations With Kiamai

    The Artaecusian Government has stated that certain actions such as military cooperation with Kiamai would indeed hinder relations to a certain degree, but the Artaecusians also stated that they would not attempt to force the Archian Government's hand as they see the Archians as an extension of Artaecus and thus would like to maintain their relationship and be allies for the foreseeable future. They also have stated that several Cerberus' will be delivered to Empress Emily's place of residence as a gift, with happy meals sitting on top of the industrial grade heaters within all the vehicles.

    Regarding other matters, the Artaecusian Government has asked on the Archian Government's thoughts on manufacturing more M8 production facilities. They also would like to further strengthen military cooperation through several excercises the Artaecusians have been planning on, with some of them relating to preparing the local forces for a defense against a future Zekeian war should another start.

RP || East Kowen: Funding

    The Artaecusian Government has allocated funds to construct more nuclear power stations to power East Kowen's future. Existing nuclear power plants will be examined and evaluated, those that do not meet the Artaecusian standards will either be upgraded or replaced entirely by a new plant should upgrades not be possible. Personnel will be given Artaecusian training on operations and will only allow those who pass the Artaecusian's training course to operate the future power plants.

    While the exact number or percentage of the split is unclear, some plants will be made fully automated by AI. Each plant will also be given military-grade security by PMC companies like AshPro, who are exclusively ran by Ashgard for protection against external threats such as terrorist.

North Kowen wrote:RP
While most Kowenians are uneasy with the idea of a large foreign military force within their nation, many seem to look the other way regarding Archron Empire sending more units to be garrisoned in North Kowen.

Mainly as a result of the few separatist pro-Incheon City groups that have resorted to violence in order to achieve their means, with terrorist style attacks against the former North Kowenian military dictatorship. The most recent attack happened during the war between Archron and North Kowen, where separatists drove a military supply truck onto an army base posed as them dropping supplies. The two terrorists on board the truck, who were wearing stolen North Kowenian army uniforms, quickly left the area after leaving the truck parked outside of a warehouse nearby two barracks. Roughly 15 minutes later, the truck exploded. The explosion caused a partial collapse of the warehouse, which set off a chain reaction of explosions due to munitions inside, and the destruction of the barracks closest to the truck. 143 North Kowenian military personnel were killed in the attack.

The temporary North Kowenian government (Archians gave power to a special group of North Kowenians to assist the transition from the dictatorship to a democratic system) warns the Archians due to them making their stance clear against the separatists, they are certainly going to resume their activities and that future attacks are imminent.
RP
Many North Kowenians are happy with the decision of the Archian government to expand North Kowen’s infrastructure and the construction of factories, which is seen as North Kowen’s unemployment rate begins to drop.
The education centers are also seen as a big positive, although there is a political debate among the populace regarding education. With North Kowenians not having much money or access to a stable income before, the poverty rate in North Kowen is still pretty high with many North Kowenians not likely going to being able to afford getting a college degree, or even a trade skill through a trade school. This has led some citizens in the country to propose having education up to the college level be free, as the military dictatorship before had done with the healthcare industry in North Kowen.

Others oppose the notion of a free college as the country wouldn’t be able to afford it without either a spike in taxes or inflation, and many point at the current healthcare system’s problems and that the military dictatorship—before Archron invaded—considered privatizing parts of it due to the large cost it had on the government.

RP: Cutting ties with Kiamai

With the Artaecusians sending gifts and weighing the options on both sides, Archron cannot lose a great ally such as Artaecus. Archron would deliver a message of Separation to Kiamai. Archron has taken to Artaecusian happy meals and have given them to select Archian garrisons, which has only grown the Archian people to the Artaecusian partnership. The partnership has turned into a friendship, at this point

RP: Beginning the Production of M8s

Kaiser Roma has quickly agreed to the Artaecusian proposal. Archron has begun making use of the un populated land in the north east. Mostly for the coast to ship the M8s and to produce them further inland. Archron has also informed the Artaecusians that they will be adding special "Features" for the Artaecusians and will also be using Archian grade parts. Still coming in line with the Artaecusian designs, but making them "proudly made" by Archian engineering.
Archron has also agreed and has welcomed more Artaecusians on the mainland. Even offering the Artaecusian government for more military base locations.

RP: Fixing the Kowenian Education

To help aid the Kowenian education system, Archron has agreed to a free college system. Archron has begun building more schools throughout the Kowenian land as well as Building more domestic industry. Such as Archinite plants, clothing factories, and other processing plants. Archron has also begun to emplace security on the Kowenian Archinite plants. Archron has also begun to think and plan for a better Kowenian education plan.

The Republic of Windardia

RP: Second Day of Election Week

Around 4 million votes casted in today have been counted, making the election polls look like this:
1. Windardian Workers Party 2,036,000 votes
2. Human Liberation Front 1,043,200 votes
3. Party of the Forest 529,160 votes
4. Elvish Nationalist Party 279,160
5. Ganja Elves 256,480
As predicted, the WWP have overtaken the HLF and are in the lead by approximately 1 million votes. Don't expect the HLF to get a large number of new votes, as around 80-90% of humans in Windardia have already voted. With the latest number of votes in, some parties already have guaranteed seats. That data can be seen below

Available Seats: 53 seats
WWP Seats: 6 seats
HLF Seats: 3 seats
Party of the Forest Seats: 1 seat

A debate for the party leaders is scheduled for the day after tomorrow. Since it's still early in the race, it's hard to tell who'll have a "majority" in the Parliament. However, after the debate is over and post-debate votes are counted, we will have a clearer idea of what the results may be. Of course, more data will be released tomorrow when more votes are tallied.

The Totalist State of Basaran

Icewindia wrote:RP: Icewindian Forward Operating Posts, In-front of the Icewindian Defense Lines.

Dharkolfian Troops sit in Foxholes and in Light Trenches and makeshift ditches and fighting holes with sandbag reinforcement to cover as many sip Cup of Joe's still adjusting to time change.

Pvt.Mike Stern:"This is a good cup of Joe I-"

Bullet hits him and he falls over coughing. Dharkolfians man Defenses and Pick up Assault Rifles.

Pvt.Thomas:"Holy $@) Totalists!"

They begin to fire back at Overwhelming Enemy Force that has tanks. As Many find Enemy Infantry litterly overwelming there positions getting into Hand to Hand Combat.

Radio Operator:"ONE STICK TWO ITEMS! I REPEAT ONE STICK TWO IT-"

He takes out his Pistol and fires it towards Soldiers charging at him before picking up Radio Again.

Radio Operator:"BROKEN ARROW I REPEAT BROKEN ARROW FIRE FOR EFFECT!"

Troops in the Forward Operating Posts begin to retreat back to the Defense Line. Radio Operators at HQ listen in realizing Forward Operating Posts are overrun and begin to Fire Massive Artillery Bombardment in Area's overrun and Airforce of 150 slowly begins to take off to begin Operation Torch of contesting dropping Napalm over large piles of reported Enemy Troops while also contesting the skies.

120,000 Troops in Defense Line begin to fire using Overwhelming Fire Patterns to try to match Enemy Numbers coming in. With Many an RPG and Anti-Tank Gun firing at Enemy Tanks.

RP: The Skies above
The 20 King raven gunships would hover above the front, using the 3 chain guns mounted on each KR to burn holes through defensive positions, targeting trenches and infantry pockets. The 48 FC-45s moved to intercept the inbound Icewindian aircraft using boom and zoom tactics and their 4 large 25mm cannons.

RP: The Road to York
The push back was a lot less than what was anticipated. Artillery lines in the rear, consisting of several hundred towable pieces, continued to make it rain. Dozens of blasts of HE shots created dozens of more pockets in the ground. The green lands slowly turned to brown. Empire Tanks that lead the charge, slowed down after several exploded from infantry-based AT fire. Infantry support would shift focus to clearing out known positions of AT support, using the tanks as artificial cover. 8 Empire tanks succumbed to the initial round of blasts from AT fire. the initial push of 5 thousand men came with heavy casualties to well over 60% but this was readily replaced with another 6 thousand from the other 180,000 waiting behind the front. As the bulge moved closer towards York, the expanding lines would be reinforced with more infantry and towed support equipment. Artillery continued laying siege to the areas just a mile ahead of the fighting.

15 Scorpion tanks, the Totalist's agility tank, swung around the outside using their speed to rush past infantry to being hit and run strikes against Blayredeshia tanks that were present on the front.

Blayredeshia wrote:RP: Lets Go
With the ceasefire finally expired the Blayredeshian 3rd Army now under the command of Major General Joseph Hill and consisting of 76,000 Infantry, 180 Tanks, 30 Artillery Pieces, and 13,800 Cross of Fire Militiamen; has launched a counteroffensive to hit the Basaran lines in an attempt to catch them off guard and push on their flanks to alleviate their Monarchist allies. It should be noted though that the initial Totalist barrage has taken 100 Blayredeshian lives and 3 tanks although more casualties will probably be taken once the battle is in full swing, but that may be determined by the Totalist reaction. The 2nd Fleet under the command of Vice-Admiral Wilhelm Greim and consisting of 150 Warships and stationed in the north of Basaran has begun maneuvering south to engage the Totalists and secure naval supremacy.

RP: Pushing North
Coming from the city of Milford, just south of York, the fifth army of half a million men marched north to engage the southern border of Monarchist held territory. This march north would catch wind of Blayredeshian soldiers flanking southward of the Onor Front. A wave of artillery from the backline opened fire on the flanking soldiers. Then a massed charge of a few thousand men would follow after the last shell erupted.

RP: Battle of the Bay
It didn't take long for the RADAR systems to pick up the sizable fleet movement. The main fleet of the Totalist Navy departed the Port of Anchora to intercept the southward moving Blayredeshian Navy, Consisting of 116 surface ships and 20 DEAS. Once within in range, the Reed-class Patrol ships would be the first to open fire with 25mm chain guns and a barrage of 400 Griffin Missiles (1 missile per ship). From further back, Racket class MGDs would open their VLS tubes and let loose a swarm of AGM-158C Long Range Anti-Ship Missiles. Intended to catch the approaching navy off guard and underprepared, the missile swarm would also test the defensive capability of the enemy fleet.



The Theocratic Monarchy of The Byzantine City-State

Icewindia wrote:RP: Marriage

With Napoleon and Archduke out of Question of being around. Hemlock has proposed Marriage with King's Daughter to ensure that should Monarchy Fall Icewindia would continue Fight to keep Empire safe. All Hemlock asks in this Marriage is Children and some Shinist Temples and future Queendom can be as Autonomous as Dharkolfia. Fair deal it seems for Protection.

RP: Autonomy doesn't mean Independance

Hemlock's presence has been indisputable. Good intentions plagued with backfire after backfire. However noble Hemlock's intentions were at trying to whittle down at the Syndicalist's and Totalist stranglehold on the nation, it's caused prolonged grief and much suspicion from the Public. This marriage may become a cornerstone of instability, especially if it involves the promise of a foreign religion or subjugation to a foreign throne.

RP: Ulysses appoints the first Byzantine Pope in 30 years
With the Civil War once again in full swing, Ulysses has already begun to set the stage for the future of the nation. The Catholic Church, a former entity within the old Federation, has become nothing more than a shell of its former self. King Ulysses intended to change that as he made the first appointment of the Pope to signify the return of the Church to the public stage. The Pope of Choice was none other than Castias Hranji. The Hranji's are a family that have been rather secretive in the past century but very closely tied to the Marlyn family. This appointment marks the return of the Hranjis to the public eye after several centuries of hiding and being off the grid. Castias' position as Pope also marks the first non-human to become Pope of the Catholic Church. The Hranjis are one of 5 family names that are half breeds, the last of their kind in Basaran. They are commonly known as Lamia, a half-human and half-snake hybrid. They were persecuted and purged in the early 1800s because of this genetic trait. Kane's ascension to power in 1976 freed them from it but they remained hidden, out of sight and out of mind.

RP: Bringing the Fight

The initial roar of artillery drowned the defensive positions held by the King's men. Condensed around the main road, the army of fifty thousand found themselves being chased out by a blitz of tanks and destruction that rained down from the heavens. They returned fire with MGs and artillery of their own but had to fall back with the Icewindians when the King Ravens made the trenches unbearable. They retreated a mile back, keeping constant fire on the approaching Totalist forces, making sure every inch was paid for in blood. When the AT support kicked in and blew up several Empire tanks, the rush slowed down, giving them time to find better cover. The initial onslaught crippled the defenses, taking out four thousand men in the first hour of conflict.

Archron Empire wrote:RP: Aiding the Monarchists

Upon hearing the word of Basaran launched into another war, Archron would be quick to over its aid to the Monarchist forces. Ranging from Volunteers, to direct intervention. Even sending supplies if needed

RP: Resupply
Relief was needed. The Totalists were pushing hard and fast and outnumber the front 100 to 1. A request would be put in for full military support, whatever could be offered by the Archians.

The Schwypian Protectorate of Nakatoro

RP: Mass stabbing in Schwypia leaves one dead and three injured.
Schwypian social media has been obsessed with a mass stabbing that occurred in the Schwypian capital of Milare, after videos from security cameras around the capital and from personal cellular devices were posted online of the attack.

The security camera footage preceding the incident shows a young adult Kowenian male, wearing a large coat and having his hands in his coat pockets approach a group of citizens who were sightseeing around the capital. The Kowenian male can be seen following the group for a minute, after looking around and then pulling out a 9 inch Chef knife from his left coat pocket and stabbing it into the neck of a female citizen who was in the group.

The group of citizens now suddenly notice the Kowenian male stabbing their friend and flee in fear as the Kowenian pulls the knife out and stabs her three more times in quick succession in the lower abdomen. The group of citizens runs off camera away from the knife wielding man. The Kowenian after stabbing the female, runs off camera in the same direction as the group.

The next clear footage is from a Schwypian citizen in the distance who caught the incident on their cell phone, it picks up after the knife wielding terrorist has caught up with another member of the group and he stabs his second victim twice in the back. The second victim, a Schwypian male, pushes the terrorist away and continues to run off.

The Kowenian male, a bit shaken after being shoved away, quickly finds another target of a duo who was walking by and saw the terrorist stab the Schwypian male right in front of them. The terrorist stabs his knife into the one of the pair and pulls his knife out to stab again, a third victim. Although before he could stab again the third victim’s friend grabbed the knife wielding arm of the terrorist, and a struggle for control of the knife ensued. The recently stabbed Schwypian takes the time to slink away to safety, as the two fall onto the ground in their struggle for the knife. The terrorist is able to break the grip of the third victim’s friend, and is able to slash him once in the right arm before the friend once again controls the knife wielding arm of the terrorist by putting both of his knees on top of the arm.

The footage cuts away to a security camera of the front door to the Schwypian parliament building, where a federal government security agent who was inside saw the struggle and ran outside with his service pistol out towards the two men which are off camera.

Back to a different angle of another personal device, the agent raises his pistol up at the Schwypian on top of the knife wielding man and verbally orders him to get off of the terrorist. The Schwypian complies only for the terrorist to regain control of the knife and to stab the Schwypian one last time in the right thigh. The government security agent then aims down at the Kowenian terrorist and fires four times. The person recording reacts to the shots being fired by taking cover behind a nearby guardrail, being startled by the gunfire.

The terrorist falls onto the ground and the Schwypian that had struggled with him off to the side. The Schwypian who tried to take the knife from the terrorist has his hands in the air and complies with the agent’s instructions to keep his hands in the air and stay away from the man he just shot. Meanwhile emergency sirens can be heard in the background. The footage ends as the first Schwypian police cruiser arrives, and two officers with their sidearms out run towards the scene.

The first victim, the female of the group, who was stabbed died at the scene after a major loss of blood after the terrorist’s knife had struck an artery in her neck. Schwypian media identified her as Dawn Alore, a 26 year old political science major college student who was a former intern of a Schwypian parliament member.

The media also identified by Schwypian media as 34 year old Won Tae-Young, a third generation Kowenian immigrant who was unemployed. A quick investigation by the media found that Tae-Young had trouble holding down work for “aggressive, violent behavior.” He even had a criminal record: Being charged of one count of battery, but had a plea deal to reduce the charge to non-felony assault.

The three other victims who were stabbed were also treated for their injuries, which were described as non-life threatening.

Tae-Young, despite being shot multiple times, is said to be in “critical, but stable condition” by Schwypian authorities and is being hospitalized in an unnamed hospital.

The motive of the attack is currently unknown, although the media speculates it has something to do with Schwypia’s controlling of Nakatoro as Tae-Young had posted on Schwypian social media hating on the Schwypian “occupation” of Nakatoro and how he wished death on those involved in regarding the “occupation.” There is also a theory that Tae-Young may be suffering from an undiagnosed mental illness which had a role in him committing the attack.
