Nonetheless, you managed to attack yourself somehow. Twice. On the same turn.
Hmm.

Protip: Basic awareness allows you to read other people's turn posts. Doing this allows you to gain information about what has happened to the various territories in-game. Very Happy

The Sect does not desire further expansion. As such, it focuses attention to the coming solar storm, in an attempt to gauge its impact.

..if said storm even exists.

The People's United Front was formed from several basic societies of people in an attempt to end the constant conflict between them. The nation works like a representative republic, people coming to power by being voted by their people. These representatives (called "Councilors") rule over one territory each. They form the House of Councilors, which can override any action made by the Chancellor of the PUF. However, if the veto passes in the House, the people themselves can decide whether or not the veto should fully be put through.

The People's United Front's placement has, unfortunately lead to problems. Stuck in-between several major players in the world, the PUF must quickly stake their claims and expand in order to survive being swallowed whole by her neighboring juggernauts. It's situation in the geopolitical area is very fragile, and with a relatively under-manned army they must deal carefully when in negotions with other nations. However, the only allies the PUF seems to have are The Hooded Brothers.

When the People's United Front is threatened diplomatically, the Chancellor may call a vote to go to war with said nation(s). The House of Councilors must then decide on at least a three-fifths vote in order to deploy her military against another or several other nations.

PLANS FOR PEOPLE's UNITED FRONT TO JOIN ALLIANCE WITH HOUSE OF BROTHERS

The Chancellor has announced an alliance will soon go into talks with the neighboring nation of the House of Brothers, a once-pink and currently purple nation of power and riches. The alliance proposal has not fully been announced as of yet, but it should be in effect by later today or tomorrow.

Public opinion of this possible alliance is mixed to somewhat positive, many thinking that the People's Front will simply become a vassal of the much larger nation of the House of Brothers. However, thoughts of this important decision are leaning overwhelmingly in a single direction. Many know the leader of the House personally, and trust that he will not simply dissolve their nation so soon after creation.

Even if the alliance may make our nation stronger, it may get us stuck in conflicts that we'd rather not. Wars may start and we may get hit the hardest, but the House of Brothers has a strong enough military that we can lean on them until we can build defenses along our borders.

What many people haven't realized, however, is that our economy can significantly improve as the result of an alliance with the purpley nation to our south. The increased fundings can help our colonization of nearby unoccupied territories. In turn, we will overall have a bigger population, and therefore we will be able to field an adequate army to combat offenders to our country.

Again, it is unknown if the proposal will pass completely, only time will tell. -James J. Woolworth

DRUG DEALERS FROM BROTHERHOOD OF THE FIST CAUGHT AND ARRESTED
Earlier this week, a border patrol stopped two vans attempting to cross the border. They didn't have passports on them, and so they stayed in a hotel for several days until they could bring up their passports.

Just yesterday, these same men were caught in the middle of a drug deal, about to sell $1.4 million in cocaine. The men were imprisoned immediately.

The Chancellor announced this morning he would trade these drug dealers back to the Brotherhood's territory, the following an excerpt from his speech: "... but I will not allow those same men, or any different man or other gender into my borders with the intent of selling drugs to the very people who walk these streets." A response from the nation is being waited on. -Jon P. Kim

PROPOSAL FOR AN ALLIANCE BETWEEN PEOPLE's UNITED FRONT and HOUSE OF BROTHERS


Just an hour ago, a landslide vote of 4.2/5 in the House of Councilors for a proposed alliance with the House of Brothers became effective. A military and political alliance with this powerful nation will give us advanced technology and an improved economy.

Our political figures are awaiting a response to our most worthy proposal. James J. Woolworth

View user profile
The Hooded Brothers would gladly accept the Alliance offer, under one term, that until the People's United Front is able to sustain itself and hold fifteen territories, until then we would like the be paid two "c" a turn. Once the goal is reached, we will still be allied but the payment will stop.

I accept your terms. Live long and prosper afro

NEW ARTILLERY WEAPON DEVELOPED FOR UNITED FRONT TROOPS

With the nation's recent expansion onto the Guderian Peninsula (OOC: cookie to however gets the reference) and the east, our scientists have developed a new semi-mobile anti-tank artillery weapon, which has been designated the YM-MP-01, or "Yarkim Manufacturing Multi-Purpose". It has a standard pair of wheels, a protective shield, and is manned by a crew of three at least, and can be used as an anti-tank, anti-aircraft (at low altitudes only) and anti-ship weapon when placed in port. However, what makes this weapon very unique and such a loved weapon is it's weight - just under 700 pounds. It can be pushed by just two or three men. The best part, however, is that it's weight allows it to be carried around with the few mechanized divisions in our army.


A YM-MP-01 hot off the assembly line, it's "legs" together and ready to be towed. Photo by Viktor Hoffmann.

With a 125mm caliber shell, it can fire many different types of shells for the right job - HEAT (High Explosive Anti Tank), armor piercing and high explosive (for aircraft). It seems the YM-MP-01 will have a bright future in service of the People's United Front and her military. -Jon P. Kim

NEW TANK DEVELOPED TO MEET WITH COMPETING DEMANDS

With the emergence of the People's United Front as a world power, the military has no dedicated armored design. The closest thing to is is a halftrack outfitted with a 90mm smoothbore cannon. Many Councilors have been in favor of adopting the older -but much cheaper T-64 tank. However, in order to compete with the much more modern Predator main battle tank, scientists have successfully designed and produced several prototypes of the new tank called the "Archangel" MBT. Designed with four separate tank treads, it allows much more versatility over more hostile terrain that would usually be impossible to cross for a tank like the Predator, which the majority of the planet's nations have already adopted.


A render of the Archangel. With a 125mm cannon, it has the same main armament as the YM-MP-01, but has increased accuracy and speed at the cost of range.

The 125mm modified main cannon slightly differs from it's cousin mounted on the YM-MP-01. It fires at a much faster rate (allowing for a much higher rate of armor penetration) and increased accuracy at a cost for overall range.

Already nearly fifty have been built, and have been deployed with the mechanized divisions. Top commanders have agreed an armored division will be produced when production numbers of the vehicle hit 250 in numbers. -James J. Woolworth

Both the Predator,Sta-52 LAR and Sta-79 SRA are wished to be traded for the YM-MP-01 and the Newly desighned tanks that are to be produced. Deal?

View user profile
It's a deal. The Sta-52 LAR will immediately become the weapon for our frontline troops. The Predator (of course, inferior to our supreme Archangel) is relatively cheaper to produce compared to our very new tanks, and therefore will be redesignated (in our army alone) a medium tank. The Sta-79 will be issued to our commando forces (and possibly someone else in the future).

Thanks for the trade of blueprints, the Predator can sustain our armored forces until the Archangel production line receives enough supplies.

PEOPLE's UNITED FRONT ANNOUNCES SUPPORT OF HOUSE OF BROTHERS AGAINST FOREIGN ATTACK


The House-Zicom War has escalated even further. Their leader has announced their nation is going into a full defense for some time, in an attempt to thwart Zicom attacks. However, the defense hasn't gone completely successfully. So, the United Front has officially (albeit temporarily) pledged assistance to the House of Brothers' war effort, donating ammunition, weapons and other supplies. Talks have been undergoing debating whether or not to send a battalion of volunteer troops - including ten Archangel tanks - to further assist their ally's defense. -Jon P. Kim

The drugs give bonuses to your dice rolls. Besides, YOU'RE the one with all the 'c'ocaine; I was exporting 'd'ope, 'e'cstasy and 'f'irewater. If you're having problems with 'c'ocaine, look more locally. Very Happy

ASSAULT RIFLE DEVELOPED FOR HOUSE OF BROTHERS MILITARY FORCES

In light the of House of Brothers' military going into a defensive stance, our scientists - having already developed the Archangel MBT and the YM-MP-01 AT/AA cannon (which both have proved very effective under House control) - have already developed a brand new assault rifle to combat Zicom's own assault rifle, the Sta-52 Light Assault Rifle (LAR), also in use by the House of Brothers. Designated the SIW (Standard Infantry Weapon) MPAR (Multi-purpose Assault Rifle), also known as the AR-21, it is the absolute state-of-the-art weapon, outclassing the weapons of any other nation on Mars.


An AR-21, showing the laser sights and built-in flashlights underneath the barrel.

The rifle fires a 7.62mm cartridge, holding a clip of 35 rounds of ammunition each. What has been most important is its customility - dozens of different scopes can be fitted to it, it can carry a grenade launcher, a 75-round box magazine or a 125-round dual-box. With an effective range of 750 yards, and weighing just 5 pounds unloaded (6.1 loaded with standard 35-round clip), it is light and very mobile.

Several generals in the Military Staff have considered issuing the unproved rifle to their own troops, but the Council has decided against this, as the newly-aquired Sta-52 would go to waste should it be replaced so quickly.

So it seems, the AR-21 may not see service to our own troops for some time, but rather to our ally's troops instead. James J. Woolworth

The military leaders examine the rifles made by there northern allies, and quickly begin brain storming. Soon the verdict was sent to the Hall of Justices for further approval. The verdict was quote "The new rifle designed by our close allies has been, tested verified by our top military experts and regular infantry men. We now see this gun as a very quick and mobile fighting weapon, and we have done the following. The rifle will be issued to all fronts of the war and work along side the beloved Sta-52. The Sta-52 will no longer be our main battle rifle, but will still be issued for more climate based and special forces brigades, because of its hitting power and flexibility. The weapon will now be shipped out to the front line and we hope it proves our nation well." Justice Stevens.
____________________________________________________________________________________________ Along with the newly issued rifle these several new additions to the Hooded Brothers armies, are about to be mobilized and mass produced...

The first to meet the assembly line is the Nautilus Medium Assault Tank or Nautilus MAT. The Nautilus is being considered one of the best weapons being manufactured by H-Tech Industries. The MAT is made for all terrain and has three travel modes, the first being crawl(as shown in picture) which allows the tank to go onto the most extreme terrain and keep stable, the second being the tacked mode, where the tank folds in its legs to form two sets of track, like its Archangel counter part, this mode is ideal for fast land travel. The last being amphibious mode where the tank will enter the water as regular, but once it cant touch the ground the tracks mechanically split reviling bullet prove air bags so that the turret can keep afloat and the tank can keep moving forward.

Specs:
Speed: Tracked 50 mph Crawl 25 mph Swim twenty knots
Weapon: Either a small boar, 75.cal Minigun, or a 120mm cannon. Attachable 50.cal machine gun for the top.
Armor: Three inch padded steal, with metal cover, very light due to secret aspects.


Other new products will be show to the public at other dates and times...

The following is an excerpt of a volunteer tank captain's journal, Major Andrew Greeves, fighting as a volunteer in the Hooded-Zicom War.

Today Zicom troops attacked us again, en masse. The volunteers had by now become elite soldiers, knowing every possible strategy the Zicom enemy could pull off. From our original twenty-five Archangel tanks we arrived with, we still have twenty-one. After fourteen days of fighting.

The Brothers' defenses had dug in deep, and they have a much larger supply of the older but still efficient Predator Mk. I. When we arrived, they had ninety-two in this sector. Now just twenty-seven remain.

Not only does this prove the Archangel is superior in overall design, but it will soon replace the Predator on the field of battle.

And today we saw something new. Apparently it's what our allies call the Nautilus. Weird thing. Today twenty of them rolled up behind our defenses, just minutes before the expected Zicom attack. When they came, they had many tanks. Close to fifty at most. And then the Archangels opened up with the first salvo, the closest tanks to the enemy. A couple Predators were lost in the initial charge. But then the Nautilus' fired. Their supreme range and accuracy cut through the tanks like a knife through butter. But it didn't stop there. As the Zicom troops were pushed back, we made a quick hit-and-run counterattack. So instead of having to go all the way around the tank debris, the Nautilus tanks just lifted off the ground, the treads becoming legs, and they maneuvered through the wreckage of tanks instantly.

We won the fight afterwards, by the way. So not only do the volunteers have the world's latest rifle, but it appears both the troops and the volunteers have the best tanks as well.

-Major Andrew Greeves


The journal entry was exumed at the House of Councilors' meeting a mere two days after the battle. Every Councilor - and general - in the large chamber smiled and nodded their heads in approval. Maybe the Hooded Brothers could win the war thanks to their technological assistance.

Armor: Three inch padded steal, with metal cover, very light due to secret aspects.

The next vehicle coming of the construction lines of H-Tech Industries is the new Turtle APC. The Turtle can carry up to two platoons of men at a single men at a time. The APC was designed to get soldiers to the front line without the risk of Infantry, Light Vehicle or Air attack. It has Two large, hydraulic wheels for stability and momentary rough terrain. Its size is a con to its design but its five inch think armor isn't. Having windows for visibility and shooting, the APC has a very nice spread of fire. Also able to float in water the very same way the Nautilus does.
Specs:
Speed: Land 45 mph Water 15 knots
Weapons: Initially one Quad anti-air gun, tri barreled and a fifty caliber automated machine gun
Armor: five inch armored plates along with the same armored padding as the Nautilus
