Astir, Qusmos
The sun shines above on a paradoxically cold day. Its light illuminates a narrow, somewhat angular grey-blue vessel. The ship looks to be longer than a destroyer, although of similar width. Its bow turns upwards, forming a clipper bow, and a small crowd stands on the pier. Its aft bristles with VLS cells while the port and starboard sides each boast VLS of their own. Partially angular turrets of various calibers run across the centerline. One figure in the crowd, seemingly female, strikes its hull with a bottle, shattering it. The crowd cheers and eventually disbands.

The King is Dead, Long Live The Supreme Leader

The Shah was never a man with no worries. Standing over a crippling kingdom of infighting. He was hated by all, from the people to his own government due to his lavish spending or the power he held. Many have blamed him for the Civil War, people fought for his abdication or his head.

On the 22nd of January, the royal family was at home and within their garden. The whole Revan bloodline was here in the garden, dress accordingly. Such place was planted in the early 1900s at the start of the dynasty, occupying a few acres of land for a place of origin. Fully guarded perimeter and high-class passage needed to breach into this royal garden. A photographer began to rally the family to stand in front of a green screen for a photo-shoot. Lined up row on a row from the oldest of 98 to youngest of 4. The photographer counted...

10, 9, 8, 7, 6
rifles raised
5, 4, 3, 2, 1
flash...

An hour after the incident later, the Premier states to the public "The Shah is Dead, Long Live the Premier"


Border Crossing

On the hilly outskirts of Border towns of Nari near Nithoria is where the Islamic State of Nari is based. On the old border station of Nithoria an old pickup truck rolls up to the border station, on the horizon is only nothing except maybe a convoy. A soldier fully armed top to bottom. The driver rolls down the window. The guard demands a passport but is only followed up by foreign murmurs, 5 minutes of arguing as the driver is surrounded by armed personnel. He finally says something in Nithorian "Allah is Great"

The convoy rolled up to a crater and ruins. Men unloaded and guns loaded.

EMERGENCY BROADCAST BY THE OSAK GOVERNMENT
It has been confirmed that Flight 3691 that took off from Keran International Airport in Nari has indeed crashed into the Osak sky tower causing the building to collapse with all on the plane believed to have perished.

Dr. Bertram Paige was sitting at his dining room table reading a book as the water boiled for his tea. Outside, a jet-black van pulled into view and parked in the driveway of his house. The rapping on the door pulled Bertram from his reading, and he unlocked and opened the door. Standing in his doorway were two men in gray suits, one of whom was wearing a black trilby that matched his narrow moustache.

"Hello Dr. Paige. I do believe we have some matters of concern we need to discuss. May I come in?"

"May I ask what this is about?"

The man gave him a wry smile, and introduced himself: "My name is Tôt Kornêl. I have been tasked by the National Security Commission to ensure that Apreźye remains a safe place for it's citizens while our war of liberation is ongoing."

Bertram pursed his lips, and stepped aside. Kornêl kept his shoes on entering the house.

"Every morning when I arrive at my temporary office I am given a list of names. Usually 20, sometimes more. You are my 12th name for today. Do you know why you have been marked as a potential subversive in these trying times?"

Bertram became slightly stiff, and quietly replied with a curt "No, I'm afraid I don't."

Kornêl sat down opposite Bertram at the table, and tented his fingers, leaning in towards Bertram. "Well, Dr. Paige, I understand you were born in the Dolphik Rike proper. It seems natural to the bureaucrats in Kovonietz that you may perhaps have mixed loyalties, and upon further review you have made what seems to be a concerted effort to mask your heritage and avoid identification. You are fluent in Anderian common, and if you don't mind I would prefer if we continued in my mother tongue."

Bertram swallowed. "Pâv."

Kornêl continued. "So. You have resisted being identified as a Dolphik, a measure taken as I understand it to protect your kind from the barbarity of your native government."

"My kind?"

"Apologies, I should perhaps hold more sensitivity. However, the fact remains that you have avoided identification which has left you marked as a potential subversive. If you don't deny your actions then I have no recourse but to investigate further. That means that you will have to come with us, Dr. Peǵe."

"Am I being charged with a crime?"


Kornêl smirked, and Bertram could feel those cold eyes piercing his own.



Sofie returned home from work an hour later. Her husband was gone, his book sat on the wooden table, and the now empty kettle sat on the lit gas stove.

CRISIS ESCALATES


Cross the Line Supply Raids

In the midst of the week at the Yama region of Chikara on Highway 201 from the Nari Eastern trade city of Jahakim to the major ports of Chikara. A small check station among the hilly plains of the region. Even if barren the road is congested full of trucks and vans heading towards Chikara either fleeing the onslaught of the Islamic State or to continue the goods business as usual even if heavily disrupted. The routine of vehicles stopping at the checkpoint, passport, fee and leave repeats until the calm night where the traffic dies down to a car or two. As one more pickup pulls up to the stop and it seems like the last one for the shift. Minutes later it's in flames with 5 cold bodies as the station is mostly abandoned. A period of time sets in before a convoy of pickups drives towards the wreckage. The first truck rams through the debris with no incident while the second one drives through with bullet holes. Unfortunately, the third and last one is shot in the bed as a body rolls out flimsy dropping on the road. Hours of driving on the winding roads of the hilly area of Yama as the pickups go there sperate paths. A recorded 2 incidents armed robbery incidents related to the terrorist threat as men aggressively pinned down families in rural farms. 1 more incident which included the murder of 3 Chikaran citizens and 3 other individuals who believed to be a member of the Islamic State. Hours after such incidents happened the convoy was spotted one last time crossing the border as all trucks were fired upon by local patrol, the third vehicle lost control and crashed which killed 5 more men. The last remaining trucks cross the border towards Nari.


Border Crossing Again

The Islamic State(ISNN) has quickly expanded its military force and its territorial clay since the start of the Civil War when it was a fledgling organization. As it occupies the majority of the Eastern half of Nari and the border towns of Nithoria while still expanding on both sides. ISNN itself rubs up against 4 other nations including Ketoria, Chikara, Khaisan and Osakado (not including Nari and Nithoria). The proud leader of the state is credited as Amir Baeshad-Aleman, a man of discipline and one to be scared of. He and his organization has issued multiple motor and suicide bombings, public execution of former and current government officials and has committed terror attacks. The 1/19 incident was indeed the idea of Amir Baeshad as Bistar BAe 268-0 carrying 238 passengers and 4 crew members, four of which were men of the Islamic State with direct orders to hijack and crash the aircraft into Osak Sky Tower killing 1,178 and injuring 479, many were from the firefighter department and or locals nearby who tried to save as many as possible. Within hours all planes were grounded while all planes currently in the air were redirected to prevent a second incident. This incident was all on live footage and broadcasted in Osakado and internationally causing widespread grief and terror in the hearts of Osakado citizens and forcing the government into conscription. Osakado soon forced Islamic State forces out of Viviran city as an undeclared war and was not breifed to the current legitimate government of Imperial State of Nari.

Islamic State troops started crossing the Ketorian border due to poor border patrol as they've just come out of a years-long civil war and into an economic crisis. Many more set up their headquarters. Plans escalate into military endeavours as the people and military of Ketoria have been broken. Border towns are quickly occupied and continue to drive across the broken asphalt and muddy roads across the flats. The only retaliation was from local police force who are barely armed or trained. Their government are yet to counter-attack the threat or state to the public of such threat within the first two days.

It Has Come To This

Postby The Empire of Chikara » Mon Jan 28, 2019 9:57 pm

"THIS PROGRAM HAS BEEN INTERRUPTED TO BRING YOU AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM BINH THU-ONG IMPERIAL PALACE."

A somber middle aged man in a black suit, with tired hazel eyes, and with hair begging to turn gray sits at a large ornate desk. The man is Emperor Kuvet.

“My fellow Chikarans, at approximately 11:15 P.M. Imperial Time last night our great nation was brutally and deliberately attacked by the Islamic State. In the attacks a total of five Chikaran soldiers and three citizens were lost to the attackers brutality. An additional two soldiers and one more citizen were lost in surgery, and a total of fourteen people, including three soldiers, still remain in the hospital. Furthermore we now have intel and reconnaissance photos proving that forces of the Islamic State have begun to move into the neighboring countries of Nithoria and Ketoria. Chikara will not stand for this! For years I have spoken to you, the people, about how through the state we are made whole, about how through the state we are grand family who watch out for each other, about how only through our unity do we find our greatest of strengths and self. I urge all Chikarans to remember this because today eleven of your brothers and sisters are being buried, today fourteen of your brothers and sisters remain in the hospital, all because of an oppressive and expansionist group of extremists from lands that are not our own! Which is why as of this moment I am announcing the deployment of twenty five thousand Chikaran troops to the Nari border, ten thousand Chikaran troops to the Nithorian border, and ten thousand troops to the Ketorian border. As well, the Order of the Shield will be deploying five thousand troops to the Nari border region to further help secure the safety of the towns. Furthermore beginning immediately we will be conducting large scale bombing missions against any and all forces of the Islamic State regardless of what country they are in. The lives lost yesterday shall not be forgotten and the days of the Islamic State are numbered. Together we fight! Together we stand! TOGETHER WE ARE CHIKARA!!!”

Ketorian Official Announcement

Yesterday, the Empire of Chikara violated our airspace by sending reconnaissance aircraft into our nation and publicly announcing information which was never meant to be public, causing large scale protests in our country. In addition to this, Emperor Kuvet announced that they would be conducting bombing missions on our soil.

The Free Nation of Ketoria will not allow any violations of our airspace. No nation has the right to send military aircraft into our airspace for reconnaissance or bombing missions. Any and all violation of Ketorian airspace will result in retaliation. We will shoot down any military aircrafts that enter our country. If our airspace continues to be violated, it will result in war.

This is a warning. In 48 hours, the policies listed in this announcement will be put in place.

EMERGENCY ALLIANCE


Mutual Defense Pact

As of today, Ketorian diplomats have advised us of growing tensions between them and Chikara as Ketorian airspace was violated by Chikaran military aircraft. Our Nithorian and Johian advisors have drafted terms for a mutual defence pact with Nithoria, Ketoria, Johia and Nari to deter Chikara and also do coordinated attacks against the Islamic State of Cancodia. Nari, Nithorian and Johian policies on foreign intervention will be separate from Ketoria's policy. We will not enstate Ketoria's policies with our own forces until 48 hours have passed. We have issued for Chikara to pull out all military aircraft in Ketoria's airspace within 48 hours or else they will be taken down by force if not war.

Success Through Diplomacy

Postby The Empire of Chikara » Fri Feb 01, 2019 1:25 am

Emperor Kuvet: “After only forty eight hours of diplomatic talks I am happy to announce that an agreement between the government of Chikara and the ICDP has been found concerning the growing issue of the Islamic State. Beginning immediately Chikara and those nations assisting her, with permission from the ICDP, will begin conducting bombing missions against the Islamic State within the borders of Nari and Nithoria. Meanwhile the bombing of the Islamic State within the borders of Ketoria will not be conducted as planned. Instead Chikaran high altitude reconnaissance planes, with the permission of Ketorian government, will continue to monitor the situation within Ketoria while the ICDP attempts to slow the advance of the Islamic State, and eventually push the Islamic State out of Ketoria entirely. Should any of Ketoria’s major cities fall under threat of capture then an emergency discussion shall be convened between the governments of Chikara and Ketoria concerning the best course of action to ensure the protection of the city and the survival of Ketoria. Should the current government of Ketoria collapse or lose total control of Ketoria itself then Chikara will, with previously granted permission from the Ketorian government, enter the nation of Ketoria in an effort to push out the occupying forces of the Islamic State and restore order to the region as a peacekeeping force. I would like to take this time to ensure both the citizens of Chikara and the citizens of the world that the Chikaran government has no intentions of conquest in this conflict, and merely wants to secure stability for the region to ensure a long lasting era of peace and prosperity. God bless Chikara, and God bless the world.”

Osak War on Terror Update
After the sucsessful liberation of Viviran from Islamic forces, heavy fighting has begun in the second border city of Escraven as Osak forces move into the city to liberate it and ensure that the Islamic state will not invade Osakodo as they have other countries. Meanwhile, President Araki Hirohiko has requested that a ceasefire be put inplace between the Democratic rebels in Nari and the current government until the threat of the Islamic state is eradicated.


Shikano Airbase, South Osakodo
As the sun rose and lit up the Largest airbase in south Osakodo the shillouette of 4 SB.32 bombers along with 4 P.293 fighters. As the beautiful sun lit up the sky the silence was broken as the jet engines roared to life and took off south towards there target with silence soon returning.

Skies above Escraven
from above the city it was hard to tell who was who except for where they were. When they finally arrived over the city the frontline Osak troops began to retreat as the 4 bombers and 4 fighters dropped bombs on the Islamic troops' fortified positions. When they detonated it was a line of fire and death as the main offensive into Escraven began. Once the forces were in and the bombs were expended, the planes quickly retreated back to base

Escraven
Thanks to the air support, Osak forces were able to push the Islamic troops out of 2/3rds of the city as building after building was sweeped and cleared. Eventually after hours of fighting, only small pockets of resistance were left in the city that would soon enough be taken out. for all purposes, the city was liberated.

Greetings.


W O R L D ' S ◘ F A I R ◘ 2 0 1 9


This year, Serria hosts the global World's Fair, an exposition of technologies and national feelings of pride from around the globe. Throughout this next week, dozens of nations will be sending expositions to our Blessed Nation. The fairs will be held at Listante Air Base, which is seven miles away from Listante Space Port. Today, on February 1st, 2019, our SOLV.2 a rocket carrying a test payload. This would be the first Serrian non-aircraft launched the multi-stage rocket to carry payloads into orbit, and also the first Serrian rocket to carry our own astronauts into space.

Many of the expositions this week are focused, as stated earlier, on points of pride of each nation attending the conference. Through collaboration and events like the World's Fair, we as people can learn about God's wishes within our own bonds, and within our actions, beliefs, and stories.

Edusan Southern desert, over AD-14 testing grounds

High in the blue skies, two aircrafts were flying. One was an unpainted, shiny twin engine fighter while the other was an Herensuge D4 in the classic EAA desert camouflage. Elen was the pilot of that last plane and saying she was astonished by the capabilities of the other one would be under the reality. In an eye beat it was behind her, missile lock on and she couldn't shake him off her tail no matter the craziest maneuvers she pulled out and, even worst for her, the opposite situation had a similar outcome, her poor Herensuge stalling as she desperately tried to stay on the six of the silver bolt she was trying to catch.

"Damn canards..."

She couldn't do anything against it, even outspeeding it wasn't an option as her opponent was able to outaccelerate and outclimb her with ease. In the end, she had to give up and return to base as her fuel load was approaching the "unreasonably low" point.

"Dummy 1... Who the hell chose the indicatives !? Ugh... Dummy 1 running low on juice, RTB."

The aircraft lined up by her side and waved its wings as she saw the pilot addressing her a thumb up. She just had time to read "Herensuge P/D-7" under the cockpit before it broke formation to take back some altitude and pursue the tests.

"Man I wish I'll be able to play with one like this someday..."

She heard the rather unusual story of this aircraft like the other technicians and test pilots when it arrived at the AD-14 testing site in several parts carried by three Kaio transport aircrafts. Poor thing was in development before all the ESR mess but when the communist regime took over, the engineers decided to dismantle and hide the plane in some rusted containers. Probably unsure of the success of this method, some others also decided to sabotage some parts. Needless to say, it was bad for the plane. It was only very recently retrieved in the ruin of Senpere's harbor, repaired and rebuilt with the help of a few Serrian engineers and the high brass of the Edusan aeronautic scene and she just took part in one of the first flights of what should become the future of the Edusan air force.

Greetings.


The end of the first day of the World's Fair 2019 marked the successful launch of the SOLV.2 rocket carrying the SOP Mk. IIC test capsule system. This rocket launch was the first our Divine nation was to launch in decades, and it is the first time our own rockets will power our astronauts into space. With a recently purchased space station from our partners in Omniabstracta, within the next few months, Serria will have its own operational space station in Kerbin's orbit. The SOLV.2 rocket will be our supply line to and from this new station, where our nation will expand its missions into space and beyond. Our engineers have already planned and are working on designing the next re-usable Serrian rocket, the SOLV.3, capable of more modern forms of space transportation.

Yesterday also marked the commissioning of the DDS Fratelli Di Serria, Serria's first aircraft carrier in service since 1939. The carrier has a total capacity of multiple H.10 helicopters and twenty recently purchased Kerthenian P.301a (F/A-34SB) stealth fighters. Another twenty are set to reserve and also to compliment the DDS Sophia which will be entering service within the next few months. The DDS Fratelli Di Serria will be deploying on a global tour to showcase Serrian resilience against possible claims to our integral possessions across the world. First, the Strike Group will sail to the St. Tiaranos Islands within the next week, and then it will depart to Granto before docking in Blessed Edusa.

The Serrian government believes these aircraft carriers are a healthy addition to the fleet, as Blessed Edusa requires larger defense commitments in terms of neutrality. As tensions rise globally, the Divine state will not be vulnerable to attack by any nation who might find our aggressive neutrality threatening. The joint operation of the currently-being-constructed Edusan carrier will also greatly expand future Serrian military capacity with its complement of sixty total P.301b (F/A-34SC) fighter planes. The CVV program, under construction in Qusmos after being struck, is considered by internal and external defense analysts to be the best move. The Serrian Naval Defense Force believes that with these new acquisitions their capabilities are secured for decades to come.

Thank you.





Local News from Serrian Newspapers


Economic Effects of the World's Fair: Is it worth it?

Some domestic critics of the fair, (most of which were the minority of Serrian Republicans), claimed that the event was a large waste of money, as was the space program. We at Vellina Times are looking into the issue, and as the second day of the World's Fair comes to a close, we are working out to see if it was really worth it after all. First off, the global participation was, for the most part, an extreme success, with many nations sending interesting live and static displays throughout the week. The Kerthenian aircraft carrier off the coast of Serria was a first for many locals, as military vessels within Serrian territorial waters would be considered an act of war and would breach the culturally cemented neutrality laws. Recovering from that shock value, seeing our nation launch a rocket into orbit for the first time since 1974 was quite astounding. The announcement of the Space Station today also has had positive stimuli on the economy.

First off, the local economic impacts of the World's Fair are obvious. The local business has been thriving around Serria's new space coast. The Serrian space coast has been quiet for years, and this revitalization is sure to create new opportunities for those in the area. Local restaurants catering the area, security, and the hundreds of contractors hired to cater the needs of the massive event have put a large investment into the area's economy, which has had a substantial impact for only one day. The markets seem optimistic about the financial success of the event, as corporations attending received no major complaints from shareholders. The Grand Master visiting the event will also greatly increase revenue from public transportation and fares from Catholics across the world attending to see him speak on Wednesday. The local economic impact is surely positive.

However, the largest skeptics will state that even though the positive economic impact currently is helpful, as soon as the event ends, most of these tourist-focused businesses will die off. Some state that the newly active space coast will bring tourists, however saying that Serria's launches are the most interesting or most advanced outside of the nation's first is quite a stretch. With other nations having colonies on other planets, (some of which have our own guests on them), it is hard to see how merely having rocket launches again is enough to keep this local economy revitalized. The World's Fair is only here for a week and isn't coming back- however, the local Diocese did confirm airshows were going to stay (it is important to note that they did not confirm or deny future international participation in these airshows). Some analysts have predicted that the steep drop-off of short-term investment into the region will indeed lead to a regional depression, in which short bursts of money into the economy with a rapid end to that source will collapse the previously stable yet stagnant market.

In the end, both sides may be right. Although the Serrian government has clearly been completely supportive of the event, its effects on the long-term Serrian economy are yet to see. The markets around the world are still reacting to the massive event, and its impacts are sure to be global. There is no doubt about that. Wherever the impacts land, however, is still up for debate.





So Serria Now has One Carrier Operational and Two on the Way... What now?

February 1st, 2019 marked a historic day for the TPM, which launched its first orbital rocket since 1974 and also commissioned its first aircraft carrier since 1939. It won't be the last aircraft carrier though. With a massive purchase of one-hundred and fifty Kerthenian stealth planes to compliment the newborn fleet, Aeronautica Militare is sure to be secured for the next fifty years. Three carriers have been ordered, including one ordered by a previous Edusan government, which can carry up to sixty catapults launched stealth aircraft.

There is no doubt the Serrian government has been looking at global trends and reacting to them. Apreźye, Icaria, and Heruland, as well as the recent rise of the Islamic State of Cancodia, have all been large threats. However, the Timberan fascists' attack showed the Serrian government that neutrality won't always save them. They lucked out on the location of the attack, as the Granto archipelago was conveniently nearby, and supersonic cruise missiles, as well as P.300 stealth fighters, were able to be mobilized.

Hypothetically, was the attack to be committed in some non-existent third world nation in a broken up Yinshan, the Serrian government, without these new carrier task groups, would not be able to respond. The Serrian MoD has realized that to maintain its aggressive neutrality with emerging insurgent threats around the world, and even against lesser powerful nations, the ability to project power is important. Obviously, of course, the previous strategy maintains the same against larger powers, where Serria's limited power projection capabilities would be instantly destroyed by say, an enemy KCRN.

Some could argue that the recent law passed in the High Council banning the sale of supersonic anti-ship missiles to foreign states was to not only limit the proliferation for peace but also to limit the threats against new, planned Serrian carriers. The Serrian government has, for the first time in years, considered the impacts of its sales outside of CBRN weapons. A large money maker for Verrani and for the domestic economy, the AMLIS Block VI ABM missile sold hundreds of batteries and thousands of missiles, yet it was pulled from the shelf due to its impacts on nuclear weapons production. This marks a trend of morality in international weapons sales after years of ignoring war-causing trends.

Edusa also changes things, as any chance of it being contested by the West are out the window. The referendum showed clearly that the Edusan people wanted the Union, even after implementing fair voting practices demanded by Serria's longtime military and aerospace trade partner Qusmos, an international representative of the West's good cop/bad cop dynamic. With CDN intervention no longer a barrier, and Edusan integration holding well in with popular sovereignty, the carriers play into a new "mini-Empire", as dubbed by some more conservative articles from around the world. The economic benefits of the Union are possibly endless.

Serria's role in the global economy and in the world are increasing in times of growing conflict in this new cold war. As reapproachment talks are being considered in some nations and deteriorating relations in others, there are clear signs that global tension is on the rise, which may even lead to thermonuclear war. However, Serria won't be spit on without the ability to bite back, and that's what the High Council and the Serrian MoD decided when acquiring three carriers.


This concludes our press briefing and featured news. Good day.

Due to the rise in violence on the continent of Cancodia and concerns of national, regional, and global security, the nations of Sinois, the Dolphik Commonwealth, the Timberan Federation, the People’s Republic of Zhioubin, and the Empire of Chikara have come together to form the Coalition Against Terrorism Force, also known as CATFOR. CATFOR and it’s members look forward to working with the ICDP in an effort to return peace and stability to the region. Over the coming weeks CATFOR will announce further details on the specifics of the coalition, as well as announce new members to its ranks.

SMOS Public Release

Recently our global efforts have had great publicity and knowing this, membership has had an uptick. With these new resources, we are pledging to step up our international aid and relief programs through Serre International. In Ostreich-Icaria, Giyangxi, Centeu, and all of the other Order territories, we thank Our Lord for this gracious opportunity to help people all around the world. To those who support us in those endeavors, we too, thank you. The World's Fair has been a good exposition for our activities, and we request that all Knights and volunteers, if able, to attend and witness other cultures, consult with other Order members, and more. We wish good faith to all of those around us and thank God again.

Thank you.





Order of Serria zone at the World's Fair

As the Grand Master of the Order finished his speech, the Edusan Princess who stood back alongside her husband on the stage took a step forward. Her white coat and untied black hairs were waving in the wing as she walked towards the Grand Master while Francesco was standing back between the few Order officers invited to stay behind the Master during his speech, smiling. The Order's most important man turned towards her with a false surprise on his face. Elen kneeled before him and the public heard her clear voice carried over by the wind.

"I, as the Princess of the Blessed Principality of Edusa, desire to pledge allegiance to the Serrian Order as a way to pay off a small fraction of the debt the Edusan population has toward the Order's men and women who sacrificed their lives and time to help rebuild a country torn by civil war when others simply looked at it from afar and ignored the suffering of our people. By you giving me my life I wish to return the favor you did to all the Edusans and encourage them and us all to believe in God, the Blessed Serria and a brighter future awaiting the kerbalkind thanks to the ones giving their blood for their brothers and sisters in need."

The Order's leader looks down, and then at the Princess, stating "There is nothing you could do more than have faith in the mercy of Our Lord, and that is all he asks. Have faith in his methods and in his words, in times of trouble and in peace. The Lord will have mercy on your soul and he loves all of us. The Order merely takes that love and applies to our actions. You owe your thanks to Him, not us." He shakes the hand of the Princess, and then he and his fellow Knights then exit off the stage to continue on their schedule.

Your mission is to assault the proclaimed Islamic State of Nari and other occupying terrorist organizations and crackdowns on further unrest within the region. The so-called Democratic Republic of Nari and the Independent Forces have halted our armies in the North under Commissar Ahmed Soleiman and Lesser Commissar Jesrin Sovi, they were able to occupy the city of Xierman in the North-West as well as advancing North on Highway 106 towards Fehr. This is due to logistical problems and presumable support from the Osakado Federation. We've also heard from their government of Osak as well as locals of occupying former ISN occupied cities of Viviran and Escraven as part of their War on Terror, this won't be tolerated but is a pin needle amongst the sea of ISN territory. Your assault should begin 24 hours after this message has been sent to you. Your objective is to occupy the rest of Highway 106 heading South to Lelevran within the mountains. You yourself field around 200,000 soldiers with 10 Divisions, 2 of which are Armoured and around 200 aircraft as CAS or Air Superiority. The ISN (ISC) Forces are divided between two other borders with 2 other foreign nations of Ketoria & Nithoria. We've expected precision bombardment from other powers as well. Do expect urban and guerrilla warfare with enemy troops causing chaos behind our lines. This objectives conclusion date should be less then a week after this operation starts, your major objective of crushing and suppressing all ISN (ISC) headquarters has no deadline, further objectives will be given after your deadline. To repeat, your objective is to advance to Highway 106 to Lelevran.

After your objective, continue the offensive against the Islamic State of Nari (Cancodia), their troops will not surrender or have mercy. The only way to victory is slaughter, you have a week to do so, godspeed.
