The bombers im refering to are supersonic strategic bombers flying at 70,000 feet and capable of dropping hundreds of thousands of pounds of munitions. Don’t worry im keeping them in reserve

Now that I think about it I should probably have few reserve regiments and air squadrons on standby.

Hello everyone. I'd first like to apologize for my unexpected inactivity. The past week has been very busy and stressful, and unfortunately, I wasn't able to allocate much time or energy to NationStates.
However, I hope all of you are still ready to go for this RP. I am still relatively busy, but I wanted to let you know that I'm still here. I should find time to post within the next few days.

With the Summer coming to a close, however, I will not have as much time to post due to numerous obligations. In the comings months, depending on how many obligations I need to meet, posts could slow to around 1-2 per week and I might only have ~1 hour to devote to NationStates per day. I will keep all of you updated when and if things change.

I just wanted to give you an advance warning that I won't be able to spend as much time in the OOC, updating maps and ORBATs, and of course posting, in the near future.
However, I have no intention of letting this RP die.

Hopefully, I will be able to post tomorrow or the day after. Thanks for sticking around.

By the way Nova approximatey how much of the Capilean Royal Navy did Nemetz manage to procure when the war broke out? And am I right in assuming that to bolster it he is also refitting formerly retired ships from the Cold War era?

The rivalry between the Stoßwehr and the Reichsmarine was not as pronounced as that between the former and the Heer. In fact, Nemetz, in his days as a Field Marshal, conducted several joint campaigns where he worked closely with the navy, leading to some connections between them.
However, very few of the rank-and-file sailors defected to him. I haven't worked on a naval ORBAT (might if I find the time), but let's say that Nemetz is working with a pretty paltry force right now.

A few squadrons of submarines, a few dozen destroyers, and a handful of cruisers. This is complemented, however, by the defection of one Vidkun Reuter, former Großadmiral and commander of the super-heavy battleship Kapilea. Reuter is now the commander of the fleet, and his chief concern is not necessarily securing the Reich's waters, but finding a port where his ships will be protected from enemy bombing runs. This is why the Reich is now striking against the French: it hopes to capture Gravines, Capile's largest shipyard.
In the meantime, Reuter has been outfitting whatever vessels he can get his hands on, as, for the moment, the Reich has no shortage of manpower.

I will also note that the Free French have in their possession a number of vessels- including two unfinished superheavy battleship hulls that were under construction when the war began- that they have had to keep at port for fear of Royalist airstrikes. This is another prize the Reich seeks to gain, which would substantially increase their naval power.

Well Reuter is about to have his hands full. One of my Großadmiral’s has a plan to mobilize the core battlegroups of the Kaiserliche Marine’s Hochseeflotte to Capilean waters which will force Reuter to either attempt a breakout operation against the German Navy which would surely result in a battle where he would sustain losses he cannot replace while Germany can, or let the Kaiserliche Marine completely sever all maritime commerce links into Reich territory.

He won't mind. As with most Fascist dictatorships, the Reich has a nearly closed economy. The civilian population might get restless without their luxury goods, sure, but they'll still be fed thanks to the ample farmland Nemetz controls. As for the military, rare minerals might be harder to come by, but Nemetz will be gambling that by the time his vast stores of surplus military equipment run out, he'll have already overrun sufficient factories to be able to produce his own.

Anyways, Reuter's goal won't be to escape or break your blockade, but just to keep his navy intact until it grows large enough to do either of the aforementioned things.

So I'm updating the plan a little. I'm keeping four more regiments (exact same troop and vehicle numbers) and two squadrons of multi-role fighters and helicopters in reserve on a flotilla. The cover story will be that they're there if the conflict escalates any further, they'll be deployed along with the existing forces.

I’m not quite sure just how much more it could escalate. Chemical weapons?

Okay, finally got my post up. Sorry if it's not as "high-quality" as the rest of mine have been, I didn't have that long to work on it but I just wanted to publish something to move the RP along.

Apologies in advance if I missed anything, again feel free to bring up anything I addressed unfairly or didn't address here in the thread or with me over TG.

New Decius:

I'm not super well-versed in anti-air tactics, but as far as I know, flak is pretty much the best defense against helicopters. Is this incorrect?

Also, I appreciate the irony of von Sonnenschein's name. ;)

In terms of anti-air defense any of these weapns are effective however flak and SAM’s are most effective against high flying or medium altitude aircraft whereas low-flying high speed helicopters are more often than not better handled with MANPADS. MANPADS are meant for shorter ranges such as dealing with helicopters or medium altitude CAS aircraft.

Hmm, my research actually led me in the opposite direction. Of course, by their very nature MANPADS are going to be suited for shorter range situations, but I've read that modern helicopter gunships are pretty much impervious to that type of weaponry due to DIRCM, which makes it pretty hard to take down a helicopter with MANPADS unless you're firing a volley from the same direction, which is going to be impractical in an environment such as the Sumpfwald anyway.
This is, of course, assuming that you're using up-to-date technology in your helicopters. But why wouldn't you?

Without radar, anti-aircraft guns are pretty much only used at short range, anyways. But the Jagdhunde have radar. Essentially what I'm getting at is that, according to everything I've found in my limited search, SPAAGs would be the deadliest threat a helicopter could encounter. Which is why they are usually avoided by helicopters. This scenario is unique, however, as, in the spirit of your Luftkavallerie, they have decided to risk the odds and fly their choppers into an area saturated with SPAAGs.

What Reudel will quickly discover is there is a very good reason the Luftkavallerie motto isn’t ‘do or die’ but rather ‘die but do’. The Luftkavallerie is known as the flickering service because its members are not frequent veterans due simply to the nature of combat they are thrown into but you can be sure that the veterans among them are not just fantically loyal and willing to die for Throne and Empire but also are seasoned veterans who will fight using every trick, both fair or dirty, they’ve picked up in their unique combat experience.

These troops are basically intended to suffer casualties at an expected minimum of 60% but they’ll still get the job done, even if they die in the process. All they really have to do is play hell with Reudel’s forces long enough for the 12th and 22nd Armies to finish their encirclement then muahahaha those prisoners’ll be whistling Heil dir im Siegerkranz if they know whats good for them.

Also I found your post to be of the usual high quality you churn them out at

As an aside:
>60% loss rate
>made up of seasoned veterans

X to Doubt

Anyways, good luck with that encirclement in an environment such as this. Your advance will have slowed to a crawl because of the terrain and because your troops will have to move extremely cautiously and at a snail's pace if they don't want to be caught in an ambush. Even your rear echelon troops will have to be cautious, as there's no way to be sure that every mine, trap, and ambush has been cleared.

Your best bet (for an encirclement) would be to have the 16th Army move through flat land and surround the Sumpfwald as a whole, at which point you would then either have to try to starve out the encircled troops or fight your way through the forest. Trying to fight through the forest with the 12th and 22nd would be a long and bloody affair, because it negates your advantage of numbers and its terrain is entirely suited toward the defenders.

As for Reudel, he won't be concerned with the Luftkavalleriers (?) that made it to the ground. If they want to attack him head on, he's up for the challenge, and has the advantage of terrain, heavy weapons, and presumably numbers. Otherwise, there's little they can do. They've overrun the Fascist pickets, but if they want to do anything else they'll have to run headfirst into Reudel's fortified positions, or either skirt around it until they reach its flank, at which point they might as well just join up with the 22nd and 12th.

(Note that I had envisioned the Sumpfwald as more of a massive region such as the Ardennes rather than a small, individual forest. Apologies if I had not made that clear. I'm realizing that a tactical map might help here.)
