The Story:
Our current date is March of 2021, the location: The Mediterranean. Precisely a decade ago the powers of NATO, as authorised by various League of Nations resolutions made an attempt by force of arms to put an end to the then erupting Libyan Civil War. A civil war that began with the widespread protests at the misgovernment of Abdulrahman El-Said, then president for life of the Libyan Arab Republic. Protests which were subsequently destroyed in an orgy of brutality by the forces of President El-Said. Militias were raised in response, with the objective to depose El-Said's government with overt force. El-Said, now viewed as a tyrant using every means in the books to maintain his grip on the oil rich country ramped up the response with the creation of his own militias, raised with the aid of the Orussians in secret. The stage was now set for the bloodiest and most costly civil war in the twenty-first century.

In one months of combat, the previously developed and industrialised country of Libya was reduced to a wreckage, with cities, towns, oil terminals and airports completely devastated. President El-Said was eventually captured and killed by rebel forces on April 1st. The NATO interdiction against his forces ended another week later, having virtually ground them all into dust in one and a half months. What followed was half a year of virtual anarchy as NATO peacekeeping forces kept the representatives of the somewhat democratic Democratic Republic of Libya afloat in one end of the country, and El-Said's remaining loyalists holding court at the other end of the country. Meanwhile the secret Orussian aide kept pouring in.
By March 2019, while NATO was being kept busy by Sadera General Hosni Muammar El-Said, cousin of the deceased ex-president started plotting to restore the previous government in what he hoped to be a swift lightning campaign, preferably before NATO forces returned from Falmart. However, bungling incompetence and corruption on behalf of the wrecked bureaucracy and military structure he inherited delayed this by almost two years, quite enough time for his enemies to turn their gaze back onto him. Despite it all, on the 12th of March 2021, the flagship of the STANAVFORMED came under attack by Libyan forces, the signal for Hosni's so-called lightning campaign to begin.

The OOC-Story:
This is a scenario that Ostmark has been cooking on and off for the past half year or so, mostly coming from another one of my escapades in Global Conflict Blue II. As per usual, this is a modern World Witches universe set with NS nations. Still, the usual rules in and out of the thread applies.

  1. I am OP, and my word is law.
    1. Rupudska and The Selkie are Deputy OP's.
  2. There isn't a minimum posting requirement, however in courtesy to your fellow roleplayers a decent paragraph should be expected.
  3. 3 strikes and you're out.
  4. You already know what level of eternal shame you would bring upon your ancestors should you godmod so I shan't mention it further. :3
  5. WMD use only with the absolute consent of the thread. I will not permit nuclear weapons under any circumstances.
  6. Have fun, and stay frosty!

I'm not recognising that rp as canon naturally. :3 Also since I invited you you can skip the rest of the app and just give me an order of battle.

You mean the one in the other Med, with PPC and stuff?
Also, thank you for allowing me to skip the app (or rather the one point in it I honestly can't answer you in a satisfying fashion).

Since you've invited me I too am going to skip the ORBAT.

Objectives:
Preventing the creation of a new Jamahirya, disrupting human trafficking activities and terrorist operations, establishing a secure environment for humanitarian operations.

Early-stage involvement:

X1 Platoon Prison Liberation Units (lead by the one, the only, Captain Spartacus, who is being useful here due to his knowledge of French – a previous RP describing his record can also serve as a writing sample.
x100 various commando operatives, plainclothes assassins, and the like, operating under the umbrella of the Foreign Personnel Management Bureau.
+ Possibly Allanean aircraft operating out of Trieste.
X12 members of the Winged Fusiliers Special Operations Squadron
x1 SSGN, FKS Odysseus

Later stages:

Expansion into a single CVBG when full hostilies emerge, strategic strikes from Allanean Russia or something similar, expansion of PLU activities.

More or less a swimming library, albeit there's an article regarding the ship from the creator's catalogue from which I bought it. This one I believe. The plan is to use them as leisure areas, kitchen and as mobile schools once they get into port to help the civilian population and to educate the next generations with a pool of knowledge and skills that can help them for the post war period and reconstruction, including of course the attempt on making sure the famous losts generations, can at least be prepared to return to civilian life.

So uh after some discovery with Allanea... regarding the state of the Libyan infrastructure in 2021 and what I expect us to have achieved between 2012 when we went in to peacekeep and rebuild and to keep the faction friendly to us afloat and now:
1. Airports: Most restored to some functionality. Tripoli's 3.6 km long runway is reduced to 2 because there's mines and craters, the other one is repaired. Ghardabiya is in full operation and our hub. Al Jufra and Al Watiya are unrepaired from 2011 and subsequent damages, which includes cratered runways. Al Abraq, Kufra, Tobruk and Benina are in enemy hands. Mitiga and Misrata has been spared from the war.
2. Railroads: None has been existing since 1965. Track-laying operations are happening with Orussian aide in the Saidist portions of the country (Cyrenaica mostly).
3. Roads: Are doing ok.

Edit: Rail-links exist now between Benghazi and Tobruk, and Tunisia and Sirt, the latter of which is about 100 miles from the frontline.

In other words, infrastucture wise is 50-50?

Basically. However I am still amazed over the fact that Dear Leader Muammar Gaddafi irl never built more than 2 miles of railroads (even those for his personal use) in his entire rule...
I feel like we should address this IC since it also happened here...
Edit: Which I have.

If you have oil, you have oil - it's a similar story in Mexico.
That being said, what is our initial situation?

Tonnerre will be on fire and limping to Malta at a glorious pace of 8-12 knots. Saidist forces will be pushing for Sirte under whatever artillery they have scrounged up in the past years. Orbats will follow probably tomorrow.

He was always known for being an odd person, I mean, out of his all female guard and many other stories, he also became Switzerland's N°1 enemy after he threatened war or destroy it only because they put sanctions on him and banned his family of entering into the country.

At least Mexico is trying something with that train in Yucatan...

To almost lose an Amphibious Assault Ship... Repairs will certainly be costly

So... who's volunteering their ships to immediately assist? I'm not particularly fond of "rp'ing" with myself. :3
