We need a tiebreaker between Allanea and Mr. NSMRC "No".


Sorry, I was traveling for the last 18 hours (and on a plane for most of that time), so I wasn't able to close the poll.

Also, we'd have to sift through the number of votes received from random people who don't post here at all that seem to have disproportionately helped certain people.

By my count of names that I personally recognise, it's 8 votes for Allanea to 11 votes for Sumer.

Here's my nation's revamp of its history of how it got its small arms today. (well I'm gonna start with the 1976 Palmyrian Civil War of mine)

The centrist rebellion of 1976 that overthrew the communist government back then was armed with Soviet equipment, which wasn't hard to come by as the communist government was armed with Soviet equipment. These rebel-owned equipment were produced in Holy Marsh and Romandeos, which gave the rebels safe haven (the communists were engaging on a genocide of those with religions, Marshism included, and so the neighboring Romani-Mar'si Union countries, Holy Marsh and Romandeos, gave the rebels safe haven), while the loyalist-owned Soviet equipment had these partly produced locally and partly imported from the now-dissolved Soviet Union. The standard issue rifle of both sides was the AK-74, with the loyalist government still using AK-47's.

With that in mind, the rebels would salvage any spare ammunition (and pretty much any intact equipment, including but not limited to firearms, ground vehicles, aircraft, etc.) used by the loyalist government. The weapons and cartridges that the rebels had by the end of the war soon became the first standard weaponry of the newly-founded Armed Forces of Palmyrion. The AK-74, the RPK-74, and the PKM would soon become the Armed Forces of Palmyrion's main small arms, with the 5.45x39mm, 7.62x54mmR, and the 12.7x108mm cartridges being the standard small arms cartridges.


How realistic would this be? That said, can I develop "custom" versions of modern day Russian cartridge loads? Can I use cased telescoped versions of modern day Russian cartridges?
Palmyrion is here to kick ass and chew bubblegum. And he's out of bubblegum.

The necessity of a navy, in the restricted sense of the word, springs, therefore, from the existence of a peaceful shipping, and disappears with it, except in the case of a nation which has aggressive tendencies, and keeps up a navy merely as a branch of the military establishment. 1
1Alfred T. Mahan, The Influence of Sea Power Upon History, 1660-1783, 12th ed. (Boston: Little Brown and Company, 1890), 26.

Please avoid conflating my in-character role playing with what I actually believe, as these are usually quite different things.
