OOC: Price of the Jackal's Feast

Postby Allanea » Mon Oct 02, 2017 4:50 am

Okay.

This is the OOC thread for the war between me, the 1st Soviet Union, and and the Shackley Commonwealth.

The ground rules are standard to most of my MT RPs:

1. I am generally easy-going on tech but it's best to keep it vaguely within the range of MT-PMT. No nukes. You can use chemical weapons if you like but be aware they're not very effective and it's mostly going to be a naval war anyway.
2. If you want to have some kind of slight departures from realism that's okay, but if you want to do something totally outlandish please clear it with the other players it will directly affect. I don't care if your submarines are crewed by bunnies as long as they function more or less like regular submarines,
3. If you want to use NS stats it's alright by me (I do but I try to keep it low-key when playing with those who don't), but I think Shackley doesn't so please don't try squash him by your sheer weight. Note my deployment is six submarines.

Please post ORBATs and pertinent information below.


IC post is Here.

My concern atm is, what's left of your forces in the Med after the Soviet strike? Is there enough left for me to meaningfully continue my reconnaissance mission?

Let's keep the med stuff to the Qaidi thread for sanity's sake however. :)

The Commonwealth of Shackley, consisting of one mainland island in the North Atlantic, a small island to the south of the previous, and one island territory in the South Atlantic. Will post maps later today.

We are a nuclear power, but I guess that's out of order for this IC.

Ok, listing resources (subject to change):


Royal Shackleyan Navy:

12 Type 45 Destroyers; 8 in and around Shackleyan home waters, 3 in Mediterranean Sea, 1 stationed around South Atlantic territory. Each equipped with 2 Wildcat ASW helicopters.

3 Ocean-class assault vessels, equipped with approximately 8 AV-8B Harrier II aircraft per vessel. 1 vessel critically damaged in Mediterranean Sea, remainder in Shackleyan home waters.

Edit: Forgot the Submarines!

2 Vanguard-class strategic missile submarines. Locations unknown.

6 Trafalgar-class attack submarines. Locations unknown.

Assorted small craft; logistics vessels, landing craft, patrol boats, etc.


Royal Shackleyan Guards:

~40,000 infantry, equipped with FAL 7.62mm rifles and other assorted small arms.

~200 airborne troops, similarly equipped.

~300 Challenger II Main Battle Tanks; 120mm rifled gun, Chobham & applique armour, limited soft-kill jamming systems and smoke grenade dischargers. 20 stationed in South Atlantic territory, remainder on home islands.

~40 Warrior IFVs; CT40 40mm cannon, thin Aluminium & applique armour, smoke grenade dischargers. 10 in South Atlantic territory, remainder on home islands.

~30 AH-64 Apache helicopters; 30mm cannon, Brimstone missiles, AMRAAM missiles. All stationed on Shackley mainland.

Assorted light vehicles; jeeps, motorcycles, logistics & supply vehicles, etc.


Royal Shackleyan Air Force:

4 E-3 Sentry AWACS aircraft, 1 over SA territory, remainder on home islands.

100 Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft, 20 assigned to SA territory, remainder on home islands.

15 English Electric Lightning interceptor aircraft, emergency use only. All hidden on mainland.

10 Handley-Page Victor logistics aircraft, 2 on SA territory, remainder on home islands.

3 TSR-2 Tactical Strike/Reconnaissance aircraft; Mach 2.3, 14,000lb payload, Nuclear-capable, unproven, fragile, emergency use only. All hidden on mainland.

10 Lockheed-Martin Hercules transport aircraft. 2 on SA territory, remainder on home islands.

Old ORBAT invalid as of 2018.

I salute your taste in rifles.

Also, is it just the three islands? I was given to the impression there's lots of them.

Three of decent size. The home islands are roughly two-thirds the size of Ireland (1/3 each), the SA territory comparable to the Falklands.
All other islands are tiny, sub-Caribbean-size territories, not worth mentioning.

Please don't. Rest assured that I will not be an OOC asshole to Shackley.

I feel we are open to anyone who was in IoF, and general nations should post here before they turn up. Is that a fair rule?

It's not me trying to prevent that, I'm just trying to engage more in MT.
Trust me, I'm not the same guy you rped with when I was like 15.

Fair enough.

Rest assured I am working on maps, I'm just a bit caught up in work. I'll get it done.

Don't worry about it. Detailed maps aren't really going to be important for at least a while, until - and if! - there's fighting near, or on, the islands.

It's a Vellakrovian knock-off of the German T-25 (which only existed in blueprints) and the Russian T-35 and the T-80. Plus it can go on water.
