Allanean Arms Takes the Herdite Automobile Market Guns Blazing
Source: Cars, Drugs and Guns Weekly|Flankfurt am Mane|Mon 14/07/2014

Allanean Arms approaching all-time national records in civilian vehicle sales

FLANKFURT AM MANE (Cars, Drugs and Guns Weekly) -- It is no secret to any automobile aficionado or even a lay observer that the state of the automobile market in the Herd is poor. A glance at the streets of Flankfurter suburbs, full of Montesardian time travelers from the 70's or brutalistic Lubyakan budget solution visitors from the socialist third world, creates a picture one would expect from Breheim or Rejistanian favelas rather than from one of the per-capita richest nations of the multiverse. This paradox is frequently observed, and the easy and obvious explanation is that there was never a chance for the automobile market to become as sprawling among those who can break the speed of sound on their own wings or keep up with a car on their fours if they really put their legs into it, as it is in other equally developed first-world nations. The infrastructure suffers for it, with petroleum expensive and rare, and Herdite roads becoming a pejorative term.

Yet the demand is still there, if not for automobiles as means of transportation then as grown-up toys or signs of prestige, and is growing constantly. But the native Herdite automotive industry has long given up on the general public and is preoccupied with making ridiculous luxurious and advanced cars for the cream of the crop, and the regional manufacturers - Kouralian Crown Automotive Works and Altonia Motors, say - are largely tentative to expand into Herdite markets. But it is obvious by now that we want cars. Quality cars. And not just the mithril-plated billion-dollar cars of, say, the Herdite Premium - they're fine, of course, and you know our admiration for the ultra-luxury class, but hardly affordable.

Now, we take pride in the inventiveness that the barely breathing market exacts from lower-rung Herdite car lovers and the resulting unique culture. We take pride in our second-hand vintage cadillacs fitted with MBT engines. But we can hardly say that we wouldn't like to see the market resuscitated and the Herdite highways and car parks start looking a little bit less depressing.

And Allanean Arms is, as they say, 'starting to deliver'.

It shouldn't come as a surprise that Allanea of all places has begun a blitzkrieg advancement into Herdite car markets. It's one of the few nations that values fun, wealth, freedom, speed and sheer insanity as much as ours. Its cars predictably stroke a chord with Herdites in a special way that barely anyone else could imitate. Luxury 20's phaetons with tank engines. An "acid trip van". We begrudgingly trudged on our tuned Zaporozhets for years, patiently waiting for someone to offer the sheer blazing flavor of libertarian speed, luxury, style and freedom that the Allanean Arms do. Herdite manufacturers couldn't quite keep up with what we wanted, and now AA is taking the market over at a truly breakneck pace.

Even after a relatively short time since AA products began getting marketed and re-sold in the Herd, the sales, according to the industry watchdogs and analysts, are approaching a projected figure of over 40 million units an year which is a mind-boggling figure for our climate. Almost an all-time high. Premium and Moosecow Industries, it's time to make way. The Allaneans are here. It's an invasion.

The Firestorm Pickup Truck is to sell 8 million units an year.

The Spearhead Semitrailer is to sell 25,000 units an year.

The Dominator All-Terrain Truck is to sell 5 million units an year.

The Acid Trip Van is to sell 1,5 million units an year (wow, really didn't see that one coming, huh).

The Turtle Utility Truck is to sell 500,000 units an year.

The Dragon X V2.0 Phaeton is to sell 100,000 units an year.

The De Huzman Hyperia Supercar is to sell 10,000 units an year.

The StreetWize Urban SUV is to sell 2 million units an year.

The Developing Area Automobile is to sell 800,000 units an year, both versions; for the lawneaters among us.

The Sandstorm SUV is to sell a whooping 20 million units an year.

Over 1,000,000 Freedomjet jetbikes are also to be sold.

Allanean Arms are contending to break all sorts of national records, and we're pretty fucking hyped about these developments. From affordable family mini-SUVs for the poor and farming trucks to supercars for the ultrarich, there's a much welcome and needed, awesome and largely barely contested addition to the Herdite car market. Here's to hoping that this is going to spark healthy competition in short order, and wake up the native industry from its eternal slumber, so we could finally look forward to new awesome Herdite cars to ride and be proud of. Meanwhile you all can expect us writing lots and lots about the awesome Allanean cars the next few months, so tune in for the issues and website updates to come!

Official Message from the Allanean Arms Corporation:

Allanean Arms Corporation, having seen the current developements in global and Allanean politics, has decided to form its own Private Military Company (a PMC). For this purpose, it will produce, on its own capacity, 1200 BTR-80 vehicles, which will be used to form four Motor Rifle Divisions - Rifle Division Julia, Kevin, Minograd, and Liberty-City. Each of these will also maintain an inherent aerial capacity of 18 helicopters of various makes, including 6 KA-52AL helicopters per division.


Furthermore, the Corporation shall form Separate Tank Battalions Kolchak, Kappel, and Markov, These will be stationed in Liberty-City, and will work closely with Demented Schooling Corporation’s School Security Battalions, which, we are told, are currently being upgunned as well.

We will neither confirm nor deny that an Allanean Arms Corporation Armored Train is being currently produced at Minograd. At any rate, we wish to reaffirm that this arms procurement process is designed purely to maintain Allanean freedom and capitalism against socialist encroachments, especially given the recent spate of riots in the violence-prone areas of the capital.

The Church acquires more than 500 million Streewize vehicles a year as part of a program to replace that lost in the civil war. In the Grand Theocracy, vehicles are provided by the Church to the citizens and the Streetwize fits the size of our streets and cost effectiveness requirements.

Allanean Arms Strikes ‘Deal of the Year’

Allanean Arms Corporation is pleased to report that it has signed a world-shattering deal with the Grand Theocracy of the Holy Marsh, home of the famous Marshite Tigers. Because in the Grand Theocracy, private vehicles are not sold in the free market by competing companies, but rather mass-purchased by the state for its citizens, the Grand Theocracy had decided to standardize, and purchase the Allanean Arms Streetwyze mini-SUV as the standard private car for use by Marshite citizens. For this purpose, the Grand Theocracy has decided to purchase 500 million of the Streetwyze a year. After 21 years, when enough Streetwyzes have been purchased for every citizen, purchases will continue to replace beater vehicles.

Kevin Nivensky, wealthiest man in Allanea and majority shareholder of Allanean Arms Corporation, has given a speech at the contract signing ceremony. He has said, in part: “This is to be understood as a fucking mindblowing deal. It will allow us to expand our Alserta Automobile Factory in Holy Marsh, as well as our manufacturing capacity in Allanea proper. It will strengthen both Allanean Arms and Allanea proper. I am proud to be signing this deal today.”

Alexander Blaken-Kazansky, President-for-Life, Emperor of Greater Prussia and second-largest shareholder of Allanean Arms (holding 12.5% of its stock since the company’s inception) has congratulated the Nivensky family with the company’s success.

In related news, it has been made known that Dennis Wise, the head designer behind the Streetwyze, has received an enormous bonus after the deal, rumored to be several dozen billion in size. He has said this to the media: “I believe it is time for me to get a palace. Or two.It will have an Olympic Swimming Pool. Full of cocaine, naturally. Gods Bless Allanea and free enterprise!”

Dear Allanean Arms,



Though it has only been about a week, I felt lead to make an early report based on the sells we have had. And I must say, that the sells here on Civilian Vehicles are doing great! At least 100 to 1,000 of each has been sold to the public. Many of the Offroad Vehicles have seen several sells for they have proven to be useful for Mining and Contruction Operations. The De Huzman Hyperia has also seen great sells by many of the rich citizens. I shall contact thee once we have another report later in the future.

Prohibitive tariffs, lack of domestic branches, and the general lack of awareness of Allanean products prevent any Allanean vehicles from being regularly sold in Excidium Planetis, but it is rumored a few spacers have purchased secondhand Allanean products in far off systems.

However, curiously the government of Excidium Planetis purchased a dozen of each of the following craft, in what was likely a one time deal:
Swifter-6 Gravbike
Buzzsaw AirSpeeder

It is unknown why the Excidian Government felt the need to buy a few sport vehicles from a foreign nation's manufacturer, but a government budget insider claims the vehicles were purchased with Defense Department funds...

OOC:

But unless something happened that I was not aware of, Excidium Planetis is not at war with Allanea. The Excidian Government never received or issued any declaration of war, no Excidian government holdings have been attacked or captured, no troops have been mobilized, there are no war plans, and the government as a whole is only aware of Allanea's involvement at Chri'irah to the extent that they know you issued a public condemnation of Gizmos and Gadgets.

The state of conflict exists only between your nation and a group of corporations based in Excidium Planetis.

Which reminds me I've been putting off posting in We Come in Peace far too long to blame it on the holidays and foreign countries.

Neither does Excidian law, but usually we actually attack someone to let them know we are at war.

As it stands, if we are at war, the Excidian Government would not have known until we tried to buy your stuff and got killed? denied, only to buy the stuff later through foreign agents acting on our behalf.
