To whom it may concern,

Greetings, WMK Defense & Steel Works. We have been looking to expand Palmyrion's military superiority for years already, serving as the main entity of how she acquires the latest of warfighter gear. As Palmyrion continues to fight in more frontiers she also needs better and more weapons to sustain a vast international military presence.

A full-strength corps in Halfblakistan, engaged in a rather bitter border war. Slavers to the north. Communists to the east. Islamists to the south. These are the military situations Palmyrion finds herself in, and while our military industrial complex is sufficient we believe that other nations produce better weapons than we do. One of these is VMK Defense and Steel Works, and we have been looking up to you.

As part of our Force 2020 program, which seeks to improve our forces for the second decade of this rough century, we would like to procure some products from your storefront. Attached is a Procurement Document detailing what we would procure from this company.

Sincerely Yours
[signed]

Kia Ora! Welcome to our storefront


VMK Defence & Steel Works, commonly known as VMK or VMK AG, is the military–industrial storefront of the nineteen countries. Officially known in Yohannes as Vereinigte Waffenindustrie des Yohannesisches Königreichs, we are the exporting front of the defence firms, precision engineering family-owned companies and publicly listed enterprises in Yohannes. In addition, we are also the exporting front of RBSG shipbuilding firms, and is an institutional partner of allied enterprises originating from Alfegos, Fallenrun, Holy Marsh, Knootoss, Regnum Albion, Symphonia, The Freethinkers and Trivval.

We are proud of the years of tradition our affiliated firms have in respecting the principles of fair trade and equal relationship with other like minded members of the international business communities. VMK has supported the industrialisation effort of various nations by providing our multi regional network of capital and labour opportunities. Our historical investments and partnerships abroad have contributed to the construction of industrial facilities and factories to facilitate export and promote growth in some parts of the world.

We are the subject of the World Assembly Security Council Resolution #149, passed in 2014 for our contribution to international commerce and trade.


Financing & Discounts

In partnership with the Bank of Yohannes, formerly known as the Yohannesische Bundesbank, we can allow you to pay off your order in increments, or yearly payment with a maximum period of ten years for you to fully pay your order. Regular customers and trade partners coming from the old world regions will also be given a 1.5% discount. Historical customers of the Royal Beaufort Shipwrights Guild, absorbed by our institution in August 2014, are also able to claim a further 1.5% discount to their order.

We give 3% discount to customers or trade partners coming from the new world regions, and also will give a 5% (stackable to the above) discounts to clients or customers of Minoa Free Trading Charter and Trade Network Association, as well as governments of the 500+ nations that Yohannes are in trade relationship and agreement with.

We mainly accept the NationStates Dollar or Universal Standard Dollar as the currency you use for paying us, as these are the two currencies primarily acknowledged by the two superpowers of the NS RP World, the Empire of Maxtopia and the Republic of Bigtopia. However, we will also be fine with you paying us using your national currency.


Storefront Rules & Regulations

    1. The things you want to buy and order will automatically arrive in your nation the very moment that you have posted your order in this storefront, unless;

      1.1. You are involved in a war/conflict roleplay thread with other nations in the NationStates and/or International Incidents forums. If that is the case, then your order will only arrive in your nation after you have finished the war/conflict. Why is that? So that it is fair for the other participants involved

      1.2. You order a ridiculous number of stuff, for example things like buying 100 million tanks or 1 million ships in one go. Sorry, I am flexible and all... but even I won't accept something like that ae

      1.3. You are in a state of war with one of my (very few) close allies. In this situation, I will have to ask my allies to see if they will mind that I supply you with VMK war machines.
    2. This storefront is a mix of OOC [out of character] and IC [in-character]. I am not as strict as I was once, and am nowadays very relaxed. So, if you want to talk OOC or order IC it's up to you really. You can also ask about RPing stuff related to this storefront, like for example if you want me to roleplay VMK participating in one of your NationStates or International Incidents roleplaying threads.


How do I buy from this storefront/how do I make a purchase?

Method number one: For storytellers and writers who don't usually use the NationStates official forums (and hear about this small fictional concept of a thread from your region friends): you can simply participate in this storyline in terms of its connection with your nation by simply declaring that your government has opened its borders to VMK commercial/industrial operations and export. Here are two good examples [ Little Sealand ] [ The New Albania ]

Method number two: Alternatively, you can fill the following application to buy or order items from our storefront:

Code: Select all
Nation: [put the name of your nation here]
Order: [put the stuff you want to buy here, also don't forget the number of that stuff you want to buy. Price we will calculate for you so don't worry]
[Optional]Additional comments: [you don't have to fill this one, or you can put anything else you want to say here]

Communique Method

If your government want to buy something, how will it write that?

Same as if you want to buy something, what will you tell me?

But replace 'me' or 'I' with 'the Government of Santiago II'

So, it can be, in a simple way like this:

Greetings,

The Government of Santiago II is hereby forwarding its interest to buy/purchase/import [number of ship/tank/design] [name of the ships/tanks/design]. We will deliver the payment once you have confirmed this order.

Thank you/sincerely/cordially,
[your representative name here]

MAIN BATTLE TANKS

Pz.Kpf.W AY2-1L 'Panthera Leo' Main Battle Tank[Price: 18 million][DPR: 250 billion]

From the NationStates regions of Gholgoth to Greater Dienstad, and Atlas to Hemithea, as of 2011 over two million armoured fighting vehicles based upon that of the AY2 family has been exported and manufactured around the world. Over one hundred and fifty nations as of the present operate the AY2 series of armoured vehicles; tanks, self-propelled artilleries and other role-designated variants, establishing the Yohannesian Panzerkampfwagen (Pz.Kpf.W) AY2 as one of the world's foremost exported family of armoured fighting vehicle series, alongside that of the established Anemonian HT9A7 Yvernyr of ASAEA, Lyran LY7 and LY4 Wolfhound of Lyran Arms as well as the Lamonian M2 Valkyrie of LAIX Arms.

The L variant came into existence as an incentive by the VMK Research & Development Division to further push the AY2 series' boundary, and maximise the potential lethality and mobility of the said family of armoured fighting vehicles. Ever since its entrance in 2000, the previous E variant was known worldwide for its tactical and engineering qualitative parity with that of the already acknowledged and established state-of-the-art main battle tanks found overseas. It is therefore the wish of the Yohannesian Federal Ministry of Defence, Wehrmacht and that of the VMK R&D Division, to conceptualise Yohannes' next generation of main battle tank, based closely from that of the successful E variant.

Strengths: Powerful armament, excellent armour design, decent mobility for its weight, above average modularity, benchmark electronics & networking capabilities
Weaknesses: problematic suspension & transmission maintenance, shot turret trap vulnerability and various other fatal weak points, below average signature reductions



Image


Pz.Kpf.W AY2-1E 'Panthera Tigris' Main Battle Tank[Price: 15 million][DPR: 105 billion]

The Pz.Kpf.W AY2-1E Panthera Tigris is the E variant of the AY2 series, and is a state-of-the-art main battle tank, utilising cutting edge electronics, engineering systems and technologies. The Yohannesian AY2 series of armoured fighting vehicle model was conceptualised to provide a mobile power projectile platform, with operational ease of logistics and technical modularity in mind. During the development and initial project phase of the AY1 series' L variant, debates were on-going within the VMK Board of Committee's inner council chamber, in regard to the persistent operational problems and logistical issue which can be found upon the design's prototype, and initial first assembly line of production. It was during the design's inception that a major error was made, in regard to the incorporation of a six cylinder engine as the AY1-1L's system of propulsion. Following mobile field testing operation conducted at the Valedonia experiment and proving range, the prototype could not withstand the internal pressure and technical problems resulting from the weight of its base chassis design, in conjunction with the incorporation of the AY4M 140/L50 gun and its intended electronics as well as networking systems.

The base of the AY1-L's chassis itself was inflexible, and was not designed with a continually-updated mobile platform capability in mind. While the incorporation of a new Forza FB-12TSD as its primary propulsion system did reduce the rate of the AY1's operational testing problems substantially, a persistent nature was still there to observe and look disconcertingly upon, by the VMK Board of Committee and in finality, that of the Yohannesian Federal acquisition and development board. These reasons were included as the primary explanation behind the eventual development of the AY2 model; as a way to fill the ever-intensive and crucially required easing of logistical operational requirement, and a more flexible main battle tank emphasising both the factor of mobility as well as tactical operational breakthrough potential within its attached formation.

Strengths: Powerful armament, very good armour design, good mobility for its weight, benchmark electronics & networking capabilities
Weaknesses: weak rear armour & certain fatal points, below average urban operation & support capabilities, problematic suspension & propulsion on extreme terrains

San-Silvacian T2009A3 Main Battle Tank[Price: 9.75 million][DPR: 50 billion]

The T2009A2 was supposed to be an anti-tank gun, capable of following infantry and mechanized forces and providing ‘deadly’ anti-tank support. However, the program had too many issues with the unmanned turret's electrical system and autoloader. It was later phased out a year after entering service, opting to simply give out full-size battle tanks to units when needed. When plans for the T2012 surfaced, design teams across the nation began submitting their blueprints; even Vickers have had different teams designing different tanks, one of which was the T2009A3, an improvement on the San-Silvacian benchmark T2009A1. Both tanks were selected with emphasis on the T2012 in production and funding. The T2009A3 was merely an upgrade program for the T2009A1, however specially modified sub-variants of the T2009A3s were also built.

After the fall of the Reich, the T2009A3 program was selected to fully replace the T2012 to become the standard main battle tank of the nation, and brought back into service, now to replace the T2012 that failed horribly. The upgrades to the T2009A1 that the A3 brought with it was the use of a newer automated loading system not dissimilar in characteristic to that found in the T2012. They also shared electrical systems, however the T2009A3/4s were considered as the more reliable and robust option. In August of 2012, the T2009A4 was released for both export and home usage. The T2009A4 was specially reserved for nations that could not or did not want to use the 140mm main gun seen on every T2009 since its inception. Using the German 120mm main gun, the T2009A4 appeals to many members of ISAF and other nations abroad; with more ammunition, more crew space, a fast automated loading system, and the possible use of gun-launched anti-tank guided missiles or GLATGMs.

Strengths: Very good mobility for its role, very good extreme terrain capabilities, benchmark modularity
Weaknesses: weak secondary armaments, below average urban operation & support capabilities

Pz.Kpf.W AY2-1B 'Panthera Uncia' Main Battle Tank[Price: 8 million][DPR: 40 billion]

The AY2 was conceptualised as a result of practicality and ease of logistics requirement. During the developmental phase of the AY1 Serenity, debates were on-going within the VMK Board of Committee regarding the initial negative outcome of the AY1 prototype. Initially equipped with a six cyclinder engine as its propulsion system, the prototype of the AY1 model could not withstand the various internal pressure and weight resulting from its networking sensory systems, electronics, and most importantly, its 140mm/L48 AY1M smoothbore gun, until the adoption of the twelve cylinders Forza FB-12TSD as its primary propulsion system.

Lessons learnt from the utilisation of the AY1 series in combat has provided the technological knowledge essentially needed by the VMK Bureau of Development and Technological Research, and as a result the AY2 came into existence. Weighting much less and with emphasis being put within its electronics and mobility, designated in full as the Pz.Kpf.W AY2-1B Tiger, the AY2 was thus conceptualised with 1B designated to symbolise its first variant type to enter production, and service. The development of the AY2 was initiated with chassis flexibility and the possibility of future variants' ease of modification being put in mind within its design, unlike that of its counterpart, the heavier AY1 Serenity.

Strengths: Very good mobility for its role, very good extreme terrain capabilities, benchmark modularity
Weaknesses: weak secondary armaments, below average urban operation & support capabilities

King Leopard Main Battle Tank[Price: 5.9 million][DPR: 25 billion]

The Snow Leopard is a Imperial Main Battle Tank mainly in service with the armies of the Imperial Federation of Fallenrun and the Nerodian Empire. It was originally designed and built by the Bashford Imperial Armaments Company. It has seen service in the War of the Two Empresses and the Firmadorean Crisis. King Leopard II is the export version of the Snow Leopard, using torsion bar suspension instead of hydropneumatic for reduced cost, as well as mounting a 120mm L44 gun instead of the L50.

VAT M-2 'Stalker' Main Battle Tank[Price: 5 million][DPR: refer here]

The M-2 Stalker is a third-generation main battle tank developed within the Unified States of Daemyrs. The M-2 is a highly mobile tank, designed for modern armoured ground warfare, balancing the trinity of armour, firepower, and manoeuvrability. Notable features include the use of a powerful multi-fuel turbine, the adoption of sophisticated composite armour, and separate ammunition storage in a blow-out compartment for crew safety. Weighing just over 61 short tons, it is one of the heaviest combat vehicles ever fielded by the Unified States.

The M-2 entered U.S.D. service in 1986, replacing the ageing M-61 tank. It served for over a decade alongside the improved M-61D, which had entered service in 1983. The M-2 remains the principal main battle tank of the Unified States Army and Marine Corps, as well as experiencing increased use with the Daemyrs Home Guard.
Four main versions of the M-2 have been deployed, the M-2, M-2A, M-2B, and M-2C incorporating improved armament, protection and electronics. These improvements, as well as periodic upgrades to older tanks, have allowed this long-serving vehicle to remain in front-line service. The M-2D was under early development as of 2009.

Pz.Kpf.W AY1-1A 'Arctos' Medium Tank[Price: 3.5 million][DPR: 20 billion]

The AY1 was developed in the early 1960s following Yohannes' introduction into the armoured vehicle technological race worldwide. Named the "Arctos", and understandably more commonly known internationally as simply the "Yohannesian AY1", the AY1-series of tanks was the initial experimental project behind the further development and marked improvement of the AY2-series of tanks. Known for its modularity, mobility and mass-production capacity, the AY1-series of tanks has served within the Yohannesian Wehrmacht for over 50 years as of the present, with numerous variants found throughout varied armoured and infantry support formations within the Wehrmacht's order of strategic engagement. It is also the logical reserved and inventory model chosen by that of the Bundesversammlung (Yohannesian parliament). The AY1-series of tanks, as of the present, can still be found in various countries internationally, a symbol of its longetivity and quality ever since it was first engineered upon.

The AY1 is currently being used mainly to bolster and reinforce Yohannesian overseas detachments, mainly used in reserve role and/or second line assault role. Over 15,000 is currently registered within the Wehrmacht's storage. Since its introduction in 1961, over 300,000 AY1 tanks has been manufactured and produced, both within the Kingdom of Yohannes and countries internationally with the legal and technical capacity to manufacture the aforementioned series of tanks.

San-Silvacian T2009A1 Medium Tank[Price: 6.75 million][DPR: 40 billion]

In 1987, the People's Republic of San-Silvacian began to slowly disassemble its vast arms manufacturing industry following the aftermath of the Usean Military Stand Off which lasted from 1957 to 1985. Billions of NSD/USD were cut from defence spending and the large, mainly conscript San-Silvacian army was scaled down to a comparatively smaller personnel size of six million. One of the issues that was brought up during this time was the need for a domestically-designed new battle tank to replace the M55 series, which, as much to the dismay of the San-Silvacian General Staff, was effectively an obsolete option if compared to other 4th generation main battle tanks, such as the Abrams, Leopard and Challenger. In 1989, the M55A5 EBMS was unveiled and production began. It was a stop gap tank inspired by the American M60A3 TTS, however, it was only supposed to enter service for 4 to 5 years before being replaced by a new 4th generation tank.

A single tank design stood out from the crowd, which was the X2009. It meet or exceeded every set requirement with a VMK 140mm smoothbore gun, a weight of 62 tons and so on. It was, seemingly overnight, set into production with the T2009A1.

DAT-A55 'Predator' Medium Tank[Price: 7 million][DPR: 30 billion]

Development of a new main battle tank came during year 1995, where advances in military technology saw the obsolescence of the country's ageing fleet of Leopard 2 tanks. As the country grew richer, so too did the desire for increased indigenous military equipment and Drackonisa High Command soon laid plans for the future development of the armed forces. Chief of which, was the development of an indigenous main battle tank produced and designed entirely within the country. As the years passed and new military innovations and technological advancements in the field of electronics, armour and armament came into existence, the project was delayed due to continuous corrections and improvements to the original design to include these new developments. Work on a final prototype was finally completed on December 2006, where a technological demonstrator was produced to showcase its capabilities. The project was not without setbacks however, and there were accuracy problems with the tank's 128mm l55 main gun which were rectified in a second trial.

Following a complete redesign of the tank, it was decided to utilize an interleaved wheel design to improve weight distribution and a brand new drivetrain was designed to address the previous issues. It took several trial runs to work out all the kinks in its design, due to it being Drackonisa's first indigenous designed tank. Despite a program plagued by numerous difficulties, the team pressed on and eventually finished the production model for its first production run in June 2008. The predator tank's largely modular design simplifies maintenance and further upgrade and modernization packages are easily installed on the vehicle itself.

Stridsvagn 107 Light Tank[Price: 3.5 million][DPR: 80 billion]

The Stridsvagn 107 was created to create a vehicle for the Riemaian national guard and other nations that was light enough to be dropped into areas via the Low Altitude Parachute Extraction System, and rugged enough to be able to stand up against many modern threats on the battlefield today, including helicopters and main battle tanks.

Note from the Manufacturer: The Stridsvagn 107 can take out a main battle tank, but it is highly advised that you do not attempt to do so except under dire circumstances.

Panzerhaubitze 2E Self Propelled Artillery[Price: 6.5 million][DPR: 32 billion]

The Panzerhaubitze 2E (English: Armoured Howitzer 2E) is a self propelled artillery system developed by VMK, and was designated as the new replacement of the Panzerhaubitze 1H (PzH 1H) series of mobile artillery within the Yohannesian Wehrmacht (Defence Forces). The Panzerhaubitze 2E utilises a modified chassis and is based of the state-of-the-art Pz.Kpf.W AY2-1E Panthera Tigris.

The Panzerhaubitze 2E incorporate an enlarged auto-frettaged and fully-automatic ammunition handling and firing Halstenmetall AY3H 170/L50 cannon, modified from that of the AY-1E Panthera Tigris' AY7M 140/L50 gun to resemble its indirect power projectile role. It is also equipped with an extra ammunition information management sub-system alongside its modified AYTRACK fire control system, borrowed heavily from that of the Panthera Tigris. Simultaneously pre-programmed together is the PzH 2E modified AY3H 170 mm compatible XA1Y-E2 automatic loading system of the original Panthera Tigris, with the ability to initiate MRSI (multiple round simultaneus impact) firing capability, which enable the PzH 2E to fire up to six rounds simultaneously within one targeted spot.

Panzerhaubitze AY1-H1 Armoured Howitzer[Price: 5.7 million][DPR: 30 billion]

The AY1-H1 SPG (self-propelled gun) is an old Anago-Yohannesian self-propelled gun adapted from, and based on the chassis of that of the old AY1 'Serenity'. It was conceptualised in 2003 following the conclusion, visibility of realisation, and sure-finality of the AY1 Serenity main battle research project, and its development was to fill a flexible role as the Kaiserlichen und Königlichen Streitkräfte's mean of a domestically manufactured Anago-Yohannesian primary assault gun, formational offensive support, and operational mobile artillery unit.

DAT-B91 'Hamster' Self Propelled Artillery[Price: 3 million][DPR: 20 billion]

The development of the Hamster began in 1991, to fulfil a requirement to provide better mobile fire support to the combined arms divisions of the Drackonisian Armed Forces. Due to the local environment requiring it to cross small bridges as well as operate in confined spaces such as rainforests in the largely tropical environment, the decision to purchase foreign howitzers was deemed unfeasible as the average weight range was around 70 tons and the vehicles were either too heavy or too wide. The new artillery has to fulfil a stringent requirement of a highly mobile unit capable of being air-transportable, capable of keeping up with the high tempo of armoured operations and being less fuel demanding, all the while still being able to provide the firepower, range and accuracy artillery units are capable of.

Flugabwehrkanonenpanzer 2E Anti Air Tank[Price: 6 million][DPR: 30 billion]

The Flugabwehrkanonenpanzer 2E (English: Anti-Aircraft Cannon Tank 2E) or more commonly known as the Flakpanzer 2E, is the primary mobile anti-aircraft aerial defence system of the Yohannesian Wehrmacht. Exceedingly well-armoured and extremely mobile, the Flakpanzer 2E easily fill its role as an air and ground defence self-propelled artillery system simultaneously. It utilises a modified AY2 chassis and is based of the state-of-the-art Pz.Kpf.W AY2-1E Panthera Tigris. The turret system of the E variant has been replaced and modified to accommodate for the automatic arms elevation attachment system of the Flakpanzer's two externally mounted Halstenmetall AY1A TCL automatic cannons. The basic concept of the vehicle's design is to provide the Yohannesian Wehrmacht with an well-rounded mobile, lethal and efficient modular anti-aircraft aerial defence platform. Based from the chassis of the AY2 series of tanks' E variant, the Flakpanzer 2E maintained the E variant's Adversus and Hauberk hull structure layout, thus maintaining the excellent all-around protection trait and well-armoured characteristic of the Panthera Tigris.

The E variant's integrated AYHK10 ADS was kept, although electronics and sensory unrelated to that of the Flakpanzer 2E's intended role was removed. The Forza FB-12TSD propulsion and 8GDCT automated double clutch transmission systems of the Panthera Tigris was also kept alongside its VLT HPVS-MBT hydropneumatic active suspension system, thus allowing the Flakpanzer 2E to maintain the excellent mobility of the Panthera Tigris.

Pionierpanzer AY2-AVEE 'Hindenburg' Engineering Tank[Price: 15.3 million][DPR: 80 billion]

The Pionierpanzer AY2-AVEE (English: Combat Engineering Tank AY2-AVEE) or more commonly known as the PiPz AY2-AVEE, is the primary combat engineering tank of the Yohannesian Wehrmacht (Defence Forces). The AY2-AVEE utilises a modified AY2 chassis and is based of the state-of-the-art Pz.Kpf.W AY2-1E Panthera Tigris.

The AY2-AVEE, which stand for the AY2 Armoured Vehicle Engineering E-series, was designed to be equipped with a short-barreled Halstenmetall 170mm AY5D demolition gun, specifically developed with the full purpose of demolishing ground obstacles, such as large accumulation of bricks, opposing walls, tactical roadblocks, bunkers, and various other logistical boundaries and/or field barriers within its main gun's range. Included with the main gun is its utilisation of a land mine clearing rake, and if need be, a bulldozer device.

Beside these changes, the AY2-AVEE maintained the E variant's Adversus and Hauberk armour layout, thus maintaining the excellent all-around protection trait and well-armoured characteristic of the Panthera Tigris. The Forza FB-12TSD propulsion and 8GDCT automated double clutch transmission systems of the Panthera Tigris was also kept, alongside its VLT HPVS-MBT hydropneumatic active suspension system, thus allowing the AY2-AVEE to maintain the excellent mobility of the Panthera Tigris.

Panzerschnellbrücke 2E Bridge Tank[Price: 2.9 million][DPR: 10 billion]

The Panzerschnellbrücke 2E (English: Rapid Bridge Tank 2E) is the primary rapid launched, tactical assault bridge tank of the Yohannesian Wehrmacht (Defence Forces). The Panzerschnellbrücke 2E was envisioned with the primary task to establish multiple crucial tactical bridgeheads which will influence the much larger, strategic initiative of its corresponding attached formation(s). In some cases, unfavourable tactical situation on the immediate field of operation will find one’s formation lacking upon the availability of a sizeable or qualitatively secured bridge. It is in such a situation that the Panzerschnellbrücke 2E will be most useful within. Its other usefulness is the fact that the bridge can rapidly be assembled and launched, at no more than five minutes, and can rapidly disengage at no more than nine minutes.

Bergepanzer 2E Armoured Recovery Vehicle[Price: 5.3 million][DPR: 25 billion]

The Bergepanzer 2E (English: Armoured Recovery Vehicle 2E) is a heavy armoured recovery vehicular system developed by VMK, and is designated as the replacement of the Bergepanzer 1L series of armoured recovery vehicle within the Yohannesian Wehrmacht. The Bergepanzer 2E utilises a modified chassis and is based of the state-of-the-art Pz.Kpf.W AY2-1E Panthera Tigris.

The internal crew compartment structure of the original E variant was changed to accomodate and reflect the vehicle's role. Four crew members in total is designated towards the Bergepanzer 2E, that of the commander, driver and an addition of two specialised vehicular engineers. The vehicle's designated driver seat is switched to the front of the compartment, whilst that of the commander placed at the rear of the driver's seat. Four large doors, two on the surrounding left and right side of the compartment, has been integrated into the vehicle to accomodate for the crews' ease of entrance and departure.

Pseudonaja Protected Mobility Vehicle[Price: 250,000][DPR: 1.25 billion]

Designed to meet the needs of defence forces constantly challenged by IED's, mines or small arms ambushes, the Pseudonaja Protected Mobile Vehicle (PMV) is a highly mobile and highly protected light vehicle that provides protection and flexibility in a complex operational environment for up to six soldiers. The vehicle was developed as a next-generation light mobility vehicle for the Southern Cynocephali Defence Force (SCDF), which can be airlifted by standard cargo aircraft. Pseudonaja PMV has a maximum speed of 130 km/h, and is able to travel up to to 1,000 km in range.

The Pseudonaja has been extensively tested against improvised explosive devices (IED) and small arms fire to ensure that its design allows maximum protection. Tests were conducted by SCDF personnel to gather the data and modernise the blast management system equipped in the vehicle. The vehicle is named after a genus of venomous elapid snakes native to Southern Cynocephali. Members of this genus are known commonly as brown snakes and are often extremely well camouflaged in their surroundings. These snakes, even when young, are extremely venomous are widely considered to be the most dangerous snake in the country. With this in mind, lead designer and development manager Jean Dieu de Soult felt the name was fitting for the project.

Forza Corio E Military Truck[Price: 72,000][DPR: refer here]

The Forza Corio E Military Truck - marketed under the Panzer package deal in partnership with Forza Automotive - is a truck designed by Forza Automotive of United Coronado to fulfill both military and civillian roles. United Coronado is a nation of contrasts, from the vast and arid interior deserts to the urban sprawl around major city centres. For a truck to perform admirably in any situation that the harsh and unforgiving environment could throw at it, it needed to be both reliable and easy to maintain. But for a truck to survive in a nation of strict emissions laws and minimum highway speeds, it needed to be clever enough to face adversity. The Forza Corio blends both brawn with brains and can capably fulfill any role which a medium or heavyweight truck might be faced with.

VLT M5 Military Truck[Price: 295,000][DPR: refer here]

This design is marketed under the Panzer package deal in partnership with VLT Automotive. The first deliveries of the VLT M5 took place at the Findelkasern in Luxembourg. They were destined for the first regiment of the Groussherzogliche Arméi, the regiment being otherwise known as the Gourssherzogliche Wuecht. The vehicle was at that point the pinnacle of Van Luxemburger experience in the development of military trucks, and perhaps one of the most advanced of its kind. Nevertheless, vehicle reliability remained a major issue for the Arméi that had ordered these vehicles, and thus two different versions had been designed, one primarily for logistical services with the auxiliary troops of the Arméi, and one version that would only have the most basic of necessities on board.

With the former being equipped with more luxuries and an improved suspension system that allowed for more comfort, but also was extremely capable in various types of terrain, the M5a was clearly the most popular version among the soldiers and drivers that had to operate these vehicles. On the other hand, mechanics and financial experts preferred the simpler M5b, as it was far easier to repair due to a lack of complicated parts, and had a lower replacement cost, while the less complicated parts were also cheaper and universally available. With these differences in preference regarding various versions of the M5, the Ministry of Defence evaluated the design together with VLT’s defence vehicles department in early 2009, in order to come to a better design that was beneficial for all parties.

Darius Crossver SUV[Price: 295,000][DPR: apply here]

What some foreigners knew and commonly acknowledged today as the 'Darius' was in fact the fourth incarnation of its kind. The first concept of the car commonly associated with Automobil Yohannes' introductory approach into the market of crossover SUV was established in January 1996. AY research & design team at the time was preliminarily conducting its first experimentation with a new concept in Yohannes;

  • A four-wheel drive emphasising a casual persona and flexibility to attract the younger generation in Yohannes.
  • The idea to approach the above mentioned goal was to allow a passenger-comfort driving experience, whilst simultaneously combining overall good motorway speed with four permanent wheel drive and acceptable ground clearance.
  • In turn, the above experience will attract client-contacts who are not interested in mud plugging off road cars, with emphasis made in the possibility of maximising their various leisure schedules; such as moutain biking, tramping or weekends sailing.
  • New features which will attract potential buyers; retractable and storable twin sunroofs, fully-reclined passenger seats for sleeping and comfortable back space.

Bodybuilder plumber turned con artist turned industrialist struck gold



ImageYou don't expect going to a bar and turning a multimillion dollar [contract] instead of meeting your special lady... or man, for the night.


Te Whanganui a Tara, 10 April - Renee-Optikal Tamaki GmbH (ISEY: RET), the growing Westland based optical instrument and parts manufacturer, has announced the delivery of orders to equip up to one hundred brand new, fresh off the assembly line Panzers. 'Made in Yohannes, good as gold', as quipped from the mouth of Managing Director Robert Doherty-Simatupang early this morning. 'As we announce our short to medium term plan to our major shareholders next week, we expect the small to medium business communities in Yohannes to happily welcome the news.

Stefan von Browning, former Mr/Mrs Bodybuilder Yohannes, briefly arrested for fourth rate 'offence against the nation' when he attempted to export a pair of VMK branded steel shoes in 2003, and proud founder of Renee-Optikal in 2008, has confirmed '... that the deal went through only because of divine intervention; you see, I was standing at the right spot, drinking at the right time, and talking the right words... and the... ehh.. pretty drunk ambassador from dear Monfrox heartily agreed with whatever it was coming out of my mouth.'

'I couldn't remember the exact details, you see... but I can assure that it is good. It'll make Yohannes great. We will build a bridge between Monfrox and Yohannes.'

'Metaphorical bridge, mind you. Just like what you are reading now.'

ISEY business report of our trading partners abroad shows that 'the nation of Monfrox is a strong nation, its people proud of their culture and their nation. Mercantilism may be put aside in the interest of good bilateral relationship between the militaristic nation and our nineteen countries.'

'Export receipts forecast has indicated that this deal will inject at least 70 million NationStates or Universal Standard Dollars to the Westland economy, with an additional number of around 58 specialist civil and material senior engineers brought in from Monfrox as one part of our agreement. We are looking forward to an open minded discussion between our lads. Technical discussion... of course, not that that excuse will be needed anyway... mate if you wouldn't mind, I will have to go to the nearest..'

The Stock Exchange of Yohannes' ISEY list reported a cash outflow of 27.2 million NSD/USD in the quarter for the company, as its affiliated regional storefronts concluded a range of funding plans and intellectual property insurance with local provincial merchant banks.

Renee-Optikal Tamaki reported a cash and deposit holding of 79.6 million NSD/USD as of March 13, down from 159.7 million NSD/USD at the beginning of the quarter.

Its shares closed up 4 cents as of today at 8.01 NSD/USD.

Taranaki-Southbourne making it in the land of the Bladian



Image... pretty sweet really. We tell em’ of Kiwi ingenuity...


Te Whanganui a Tara, 11 April - For the preceding three months, the rate of staff turnover for Brown & Dick Barrel & Technology Limited (ISEY: BBT) ‘has been exceptional’, the company claims. HR 2IC Officer Rudi Flaherty said it had created fifty new jobs for the local Taranaki-Southbourne community last month, with an additional thirty estimated to be created within the next five weeks ‘to cope with continuing demand from our trading partners in Bladia.’

‘The company is currently participating in a small and medium sized businesses seminar held in the Bladian Imperial capital city… so we are also a bit surprised with that invitation [and] opportunity presented to us abroad as well…’

‘Pretty sweet really. We tell em’ of Kiwi ingenuity, and I am sure the Bladian are very well acquainted by our lot already since God knows when…’

‘We have to compete with many other businesses and suppliers… not just in the nineteen countries, but also others out there, including domestic Bladian companies.’

‘… so I can say with confidence that we have punched above our weight quite well considering the obstacles and all… and while we can still do a lot better than where we are at now, bugger all is all I can say.’

‘We’re looking ahead positive of this newfound opportunity, and would like to offer our thanks to the people of Bladia and their government.’

The ISEY listed business specialised in metallurgy production and secondary supply, as well as small electrical components in the Taranaki-Southborne region. Managing Director SamanthaTan announced to the shareholders of its goal to achieve its 15 per cent growth mark for the next three years, and to increase the number of staff – of local Taranaki-Southborne born to benefit the community – scholarship in partnership with the University of Te Whanganui-a-Tara School of Engineering.

Mrs Tan said of the importance of preventing further brain drain in the local community. ‘While the company’s long standing membership under the united banner of VMK did somewhat reduce that [brain drain to other regions and abroad], the numbers are still noticeably there.’

‘We will ensure that the best and brightest will have the opportunity to stay in Taranaki-Southborne, and benefit our lovely community for years to come.

The Stock Exchange of Yohannes' ISEY list reported a cash and deposit holding of 30.7 million NSD/USD as of April 8, down from 41 million NSD/USD at the beginning of the quarter.

Its shares closed up 2 cents at 3.08 NSD/USD.

Volksgrad-Hemstadt Chemical's 11 new factories to be opened in Cantautahi



Image... to be deliberately obtuse for the sake of consolidating his voting base even further…


Te Whanganui a Tara, 13 April - Volksgrad-Hemstadt Chemical – a subsidiary of Halstenmetall – purchased eleven of the recently renovated Aggregate Ltd plants in Cantautahi just a week following His Majesty’s Government biannual industrial meeting; signaling the continuing expansion of one of the nineteen countries’ major companies abroad.

Dr Brandon Temuaki-Fisher, the 51-year old industrialist behind the recent acquisitions, had promised to ‘respect the local communities, provide living wage jobs, and acknowledged any local mores of the surrounding areas.’

‘We are also interested in acquiring an initial group of skilled, knowledgeable workforce as a part of our broad management recruitment programme for the soon to be opened plants…’

‘… a quarter of their salaries will be paid in full, while training will be provided to ensure that everything will run smoothly once the plants are opened fully for production.’

Some members of the local councils in Cantautahi had expressed their concerns over the negative consequential effects of ‘an industrial complex, to be run by a foreign company, looked after by foreign management completely detached from the ground… ending up not benefitting our community in the process.’

‘… however, after hearing of the fact that [middle] regional management will be [given to] locals… I’d say that fact alone has alleviated some of our initial concerns.’

Domestic critics, especially exponents of Yohannesian first employment, argue over the doubtful benefit of ‘constructing and producing things overseas’ for the benefit of ‘foreign countries and people.’

‘Where are the jobs for our own people…? It’s our money that goes there… and so, why are we not benefitting in the process…? Yohannes First leader Loseton Peters said at a Grey Power’s meeting this morning.

Dr Fisher said of the importance Yohannesian industries abroad had on outside local communities, and that the long term cost of providing positive consequential effects ‘… are definitely less than the after tax profit we have for our products.’

‘Otherwise, we will not be looking at pursuing this opportunity in Cantautahi.’

‘Mr Peters need not reply back. I am sure he fully knows the benefit we will potentially accrued…’

‘… to be deliberately obtuse for the sake of consolidating his voting base even further… is pretty much his style we all should be familiar of by now.’

The Stock Exchange of Yohannes' ISEY list reported that Halstenmetall shares closed up 3 cents at 10.11 NSD/USD.

The Empire of Carosi

In his unfathomable wisdom your beloved leader and Emperor, my husband, the Conqueror of the Plains, Lion of the Mountains, the King of Kings, the Hero of the Zaria Valley, The Sun of Carosi, his Divine Majesty Emperor Mardock III, rightful ruler of Ibeis, has decided that we can be of help to each other.

Nation: The Empire of Carosi
Order: At the moment we don’t have the money to buy your fancy tools of war. We have a different type of offer to make.
Additional comments: The Empire of Carosi neither has labor nor environmental laws. We also have no taxes but high unemployment. We would like to ask Yohannes if they are interested to open some production and R&D facilities in our nation. Your compounds would be located near a deep water port and have rail road connections. A new city is being constructed next to your premises. We have no regulations regarding scientific experiments other than that you do that in your compounds. While the area we can offer you is very small it would be extra territorial like an embassy so you can do there whatever you please.

My name is Greg Williamson and I'm the Secretary of Defense for The Revolutionary Republic of Jurestist and I was looking at your available ships and I was wondering if you could help with the retro fitting of 30 cargo ship into transports, warships, and battleships if you do I would be will to pay n$14,000,000,000 for your services. The JNA already has started on the work and is asking for help from private companies like yours if you don't provide this service could you point me to a company that does.

Adelbert Brothers to construct 30 Wiremu ships by 2018



Image... a confirmation of the confidence of customers of both nations...


Te Whanganui a Tara, 26 May - Adelbert Brothers Mercantile & Logistics on Tuesday signed a letter of intent with the Democratic Barcen Department of Foreign Trade to construct an initial number of one hundred and ten Wiremu class ships in a deal to be worth $17 billion annually, company spokesperson Christopher Yang said. ‘We are hoping that this initiative will spearhead, and cement, the foundation of a thriving Barco-Yohannesian trade.’

The announcement went down after five weeks of negotiations between the importing giant of Barcen Logistics Ltd and Adelbert Brothers, with both governments moderating the discussion, and confirming the final results of the lengthy negotiation. ‘The first batch of assembled ships to be delivered would hopefully eventually travel through the trading seaway and routes of both nations, symbolising the successful partnership of both companies in cementing a good Barco-Yohannesian relationship in the process’

‘This is a fantastic update and news for both of the companies involved. It is a confirmation of the confidence of customers of both nations towards both companies. The first thirty ships is set to be launched towards the end of 2018, with subsequent orders to be announced to meet further demand in Barcen.

‘Our estimation sees the the initial [thirty] vessels taking over 60 per cent of our capacity. Extending it even further would result in a significant backlog for our domestic arms operations… and so, we do not see it as one option… unless more capital and investment are to be had.’

‘The current financial climate in Yohannes clearly indicate that that question will be answered with a big no. We are hoping for its feasibility… but realistically, we are not optimistic about that possibility for now.’

With 165,000 tonnage, displacing a full 60,000 tonnes, the Wiremu class is powered by two Weilmfontein Ts10 twin skeg propulsion, and is a common thing to observe around the expanse of Yohannesian trading routes abroad.

The Stock Exchange of Yohannes’ ISEY list reported a cash and deposit holding of 380.7 million NSD/USD as of 26 May.

Its shares closed up 5 cents at 11.06 NSD/USD.

Halstenmetall, Renee EO to expand in Bryton as domestic manufacturing growth slows


Image... as slow demand overseas and a strong Quertz russling meant sluggish export...


Te Whanganui a Tara, 27 May - The Government of the People’s Republic of Bryton has opened its borders to VMK manufacturing and investment, as workers and suppliers demand the relaxation of His Majesty’s Foreign Office policy in dealing with periphery nations. ‘Orders to not just Halstenmetall, but also Renee Elektro-Optik and other established VMK firms have slightly slumped for a wee while since February last year,’ said Te Whanganui-a-Tara Chamber of Commerce President James Buchanan.

‘House prices are going up heaps in the capital city, while wages and salaries are slowly stagnating relative to the purchasing power of even middle Yohannes now…. as low skilled manufacturing jobs moved overseas… the dampening and consequential effects are going up slowly to middle Yohannes also.’

‘This is a trend that we as a nation can’t avoid, and couldn’t avoid for a wee while now… considering our position as an international financial and manufacturing nation. We are, therefore, subjected to the forces of international labour and market.’

‘But much of our strength also, paradoxically, comes from the factories and commercial works… financial institutions and bank branches we have abroad. The educated members of our society benefit in the process… but at the expense of our working class.’

‘The smart aerospace composite industry of our nation is one example of this [trend]. In the field of massive and complex manufacturing we are now in need of materials, with properties, that can be manipulated according to our needs. Smart materials are one among those unique materials…’

‘… The two examples that I will illustrate briefly is the T650-35 carbon fibre and AFR-PE-4 polyimide matrix. The Crown and His Majesty’s Foreign Office will simplify it as HTE skin of the ZM-7L Dreadnought stealth bomber.’

‘But the T650-35/AFR-PE-4 is more than just that; for this composite material, and its production line… down to the research and innovation involved in its beginning, involved the labour and work, and not just that… but also the brain, of nationals coming from not just Yohannes, but also our trading partners abroad.’

‘But… you see, while it is good for the government… to make it simple. The money comes to Yohannes the government and the institutions… the big corporations, the big banks. But… the money comes out of Yohannes the workers… or perhaps the potential [money], comes out of our hard-working workers, to the pockets of foreign workers.’

‘… This is why we as a nation have seen the rise of xenophobia as of recent… exemplified by the likes of Looseton [sic] peters and Yohannes First…’

‘… They are distasteful bunch… and while I do not agree with what they have done… I can see why they are gaining tractions politically.’

Manufacturing has been under pressure as slow demand overseas and a strong Quertz russling meant sluggish export and more importation by Yohannesians. The Reserve Bank has recently announced that it will raise interest rate to deaccelerate the Te Whanganui-a-Tara housing price, as domestic pundits pointed at the government for its ‘failure to shackle the tentacles of foreign investors in housing.’

Demand for ferrous metals, meanwhile, have gone up, but prices have failed to keep up, as neighbouring industrial nations Lamoni and Lyras increased their supplies of stainless steel and aluminium products for the last three months.

The Institute of Ferrous Metal Supply and the accompanying ISEY index forecast, however, that manufacturing activity will expand for the first three months from July, though down from 52.1 last month, indicating the possibility of growth disappearing pending market situation abroad.

The Stock Exchange of Yohannes’ ISEY list reported a combined cash and deposit holding of 12.7 trillion NSD/USD for the top seventy domestic aerospace manufacturing corporations as of 27 May.
