Oh, right. Alpha's medic gave a formal request to transfer to Bravo.

I would like to deal with the northern islands. That submerged continent and Japan-looking island chain is so tantalising.

Actually, I'd rather like to expand on the islands to the far west.

Yup. Toishima and I would like our characters to swap squads, if that's possible. Better dynamic that way.
For really, I think that the poorest he that is in England hath a life to live as the greatest he. And therefore truly, Sir, I think it's clear that every man that is to live under a Government ought first by his own consent to put himself under that Government. And I do think that the poorest man in England is not at all bound in a strict sense to that Government that he hath not had a voice to put himself under.

1 Vehicle Gunner for Hotel
1 Driver for Golf

Okay, folks, as much as worldbuilding is fun, we still have a couple positions open that I'd like filled before we get the IC rolling. These are:

2x AT gunners for Charlie
Medic for Charlie
Mortar leader for Delta
Mortar operator for Delta
Driver for Golf.

Tell me if any of these catch your fancy. I'll pick one myself if need be. I'll leave the CO and XO as NPCs until we decide they're needed. They probably won't be called Dickwit and Fuckstick, though.


I'll see if I can't do a driver for Golf.

The Carlisle wrote:Official Name: County of Hugeleg (Rolling Hills)
Local Name: Slatina (Moors)


A temperate climate dominated by rolling hills and plains. The area used to be moorish all over, but land clearance and new technology gave way to clearing of many of the marshes, turning it into a large agricultural area.

The place is unique because it has a high amount of names, surnames, and words related to the long dead Vyoroney culture. While the people are very Hengistic, there is a noticeable difference in accent, wording, and names between other Hengistic people. There are even different festivals and cultural interpretation between the people here and other Hengistics. The locals even call the county by a different name, Slatina, and go a different name called Slatina-lide. Because of this, archaeologists and anthropologists flock to this area to study the people and dig out older villages.

Despite the differences, the people are heavily mixed. In the north, its more Hengistic, in the center its more pure with the purity better as you go to the center, and more Ezeric in the south.

The people, despite there differences, are very united. A Hengistic speaking Slatina-lide and an Ezeric Slatina-lide feel more connected to each other than with the hengistic or Ezeric in the next county, even if the distance is so minimal.


Ah shoot I forgot the picture!

Here it is:



I'll see what I can do. I might have to go back to the numbering system, and just label the numbers in plaintext.

As for aircraft, no idea! Probably something similar from the real Sixties. They won't be a big deal for us, since the Forest is hell to operate in for aircraft. Oh, and assault blimps. Definitely assault blimps.

She'd better not go around tossing shells. Someone might notice. ;)


Wait, why's the forest hell to operate aircraft in? Maybe CAS aircraft, but I don't see how it would be much different from a colder Vietnam.

I'll do aircraft (including blimps) later.

I wanna help do the blimps. I like blimps. Blimps is love, blimps is life. Yes. Like lets make them together yo.

There's no IC yet, maybe because our squads are missing a few people. Also, I think I'm going to make a third character later.

It seems that the only information I could gather for war zepplins are that they had machine guns and could throw down bombs. We would have to base our versions from somewhere else than IRL history.

My shit is too basic for your beautiful worldbuilding, anything I make turns out terrible in comparison. I'll just look at the vehicles for now.

Aircraft
I love the smell of napalm in the morning. Smells like... Victory.
P-23 Skyclaw

The Skyclaw is a single-engine, all weather supersonic interceptor designed following the Antediluvian equipment doctrine- cheap, modular and numerous. It is one of the more common fighter aircraft in the world. Says something about our manufacturing capabilities, doesn't it?

It has an inlet cone in the air intake, swept-back delta wings and two tailfins. The entire fuselage contains the engine, with the engine thrust nozzle coming out of the rear of the plane. Opinions vary whether the plane is beautiful or hideous, but it gets the job done. It is able to go to a top speed of 2,100 km/h and has a range of 1,200 km on internal fuel, and can accept external fuel tanks as well. The Skyclaw climbs at a rate of 220 m/s to a service ceiling of around 17,800 m.

Armament-wise, the Skyclaw is armed with an internal 20mm cannon, plus four wing pylon hardpoints for air-to-air missiles and an inline underfuselage hardpoint for external drop tanks. The ejection seat is an innovative design, where the seat connects with the canopy and forms a protective shell around the pilot, so those inglorious sons-of-bitches are protected as they come crashing back down.

When you see Skyclaws tearing past and securing the air, rest assured we'll get some CAS or even a LAT run soon.

A-23 Skytalon

The Skytalon is a variant of the Skyclaw, designed for ground-attack purposes. The main difference is the shape of the wings, where the delta wings have been removed in favour of straight wings to maintain a lower airspeed, perfect for strafing or bombing Precambrians back to the stone age. Sacrificing speed and manoeuvrability for carrying capacity and armour, the Skytalon is also heavily armoured and can withstand small-arms fire. I can't verify it, but I've heard of Skytalons returning to base safely with a tailfin and half a wing lost. These are the bastards we need to count on when the big tanks roll in.

Intended to blast ground formations apart, the Skytalon has a 30mm cannon installed, though a variant (A-23b) has two 20mm cannons instead. It also has six wing pylons for bombs or air-to-ground missiles, as well as an inline underfuselage hardpoint for external drop tanks. Some "homebrew" variants exist, particularly those belonging to squadrons stationed at forward airbases, incorporating multiple machine guns strapped to the fuselage or other outlandish ideas like dropping parachuted supplies into battle via fighter. It has one pilot.

The thing may be uglier than the 'Claw, but you hear this thing coming in, just hit the dirt and hope he doesn't miss with those napalm bombs. One second you're facing a wall of Precam mooks, the next you're clear. Might want to savour the smell of barbecuing Precams before you move up.

R-23 Skyraider

Another variant of the Skyclaw, the Skyraider is not so much designed for fighting than it is for reconnaissance. Made for long-range patrols, scouting and information gathering, the Skyraider is completely unarmed. Externally, it appears identical to the Skyclaw, but incorporates powerful radar and cameras within the fuselage and on a deployable pod beneath the fuselage. It can act as an airborne coordinator for ground troops in addition to its scouting duties. The Skyraider also has two crewmembers, the pilot and a communications officer, who sit in an elongated cockpit.

Now this sonofabitch is unarmed, but don't let that fool you. Without this guy, we'll be blind and mute out there. Sure, the tree cover might just be too thick for the 'Raider to see a thing, but there are some things that just can't hide. Like a whole Precam convoy. Wouldn't want that to sneak up behind up, would we?

B-33 Marauder

A heavily-armed bomber aircraft, the B-33 is a supersonic, high-altitude strategic bomber. Its most prominent and destructive use is carpet bombing, which flattens large areas of the Forest and enemies with it, sometimes known as Crawling Thunder. We call it the flying shell due to its elongated shape, similar to a 30mm shell with swept-back wings, as well as its tendency to explode in a massive spectacle when shot down.

The Marauder is capable of flying at a maximum speed of 1,047 km/h and has a service ceiling of 15,000 m. It is powered by four jet engines, located directly beside the fuselage as part of the wing structure to reduce drag. It has three turrets of questionable usefulness- a tail turret with a 12.5mm machine gun, a nose turret with a 20mm gun and a dorsal turret with two 12.5mm machine guns. It is capable of carrying up to 60,000 pounds of assorted ordnance. It has a crew of five.

This one here just blows things up. You won't see it. It's too far up to see clearly, and the Marauder jockeys love to fly at night. But you'll know it's there when you hear Crawling Thunder happen. It's like an arty barrage, but sounds ten times better.

A-33 Marauder Destroyer

A Marauder outfitted to perform CAS duties, the imaginatively-named Marauder Destroyer is armed with even more guns, by removing the entire bomb payload. The nose turret is removed and replaced with a staggering six 25mm cannons controlled by the pilot, while the tail turret also receives a 25mm gun to pick off targets missed by the initial strafing run. The dorsal turret is unchanged. Wing-mounted pods can also carry bombs or missile launchers.

When this big bastard rears his ugly head, drop everything, hit the dirt and prepare for your victory parade, because nothing- Nothing, can withstand the full might of a Destroyer strafing run. It's called a Destroyer for a reason. Tanks, men, your eardrums, it just goes boom. And splat.

H-42 Low Altitude Transport

Called by a myriad of nicknames, the H-42 LAT is a humble, single-engined utility chopper with a crew of two. This helicopters are highly recognisable, and the mere mention of a highly dangerous and risky LAT run- often laden with supplies and Medevac, and the target of all Precambrian gunfire in the sector- is enough motivation for ground troops to rush to begin cutting an LZ. Trust me, you will want to grab a saw and hack at those trees. The LAT can carry up to 8 soldiers or 3 stretchers, and often has two machine gun mounts in the cargo compartment. Externally, rockets and more guns can be mounted, as well as speakers to play the Flight of the Valkyries while strafing Precambrians on the ground.

Need I say more? Hell, you probably even came out here on a LAT as well. We'll see a lot of them out here, downed or otherwise.

This helicopters are highly recognisable, and the mere mention of a highly dangerous and risky LAT run- often laden with supplies and Medevac, and the target of all Precambrian gunfire in the sector- is enough motivation for ground troops to rush to begin cutting an LZ. Trust me, you will want to grab a saw and hack at those trees. The LAT can carry up to 8 soldiers or 3 stretchers, and often has two machine gun mounts in the cargo compartment. Externally, rockets and more guns can be mounted, as well as speakers to play the Flight of the Valkyries while strafing Precambrians on the ground.

Need I say more? Hell, you probably even came out here on a LAT as well. We'll see a lot of them out here, downed or otherwise.

(It's just a Huey)

Would you like to make assault blimps with me?

Any more unfinished squads? I noticed that Hotel is an APC, and doesn't need a Gunner.
OH YEAH! How about Fire Controllers? Do we need those?

Let us do this, my bongsharing friend. The blimps shall be of the assault. Low altitude beasts with attitude. Gondolas with cannons and machine guns. Biggest ones with 120s for all-round shit-destroying. Upside-down MLRSes to fuck shit up.
Location is always Japan where applicable. If not, then a fictional landmass.
RP nation is Akitsukuni.
Just your usual Singaporean Chinese, who likes food, Anime, Manga, food, J-Pop, Battlefield 4 and eating food. Dislikes include how We're All Living in Amerika as well as dogs.

BLIMPS! BLIMPS! BLIMPS! BLIMPS!!! BLIMPS!!!!!

In non cult like notions, I have researched that we would have to take our assault blimps inspirations from fictional sources rather than real life equivilents as I say that real life war zeppelins would not fit our dear crazy made up world of Soil.
