    Astriedanian expansion

    @Sunset Sea IslandsIf you say it's okay, I won't refuse
  4. So, I was planning on expanding a bit, however, I want to make sure that it doesn't pose any problems (I will, of course, be RPing the expansions and its reasons) The RP about the expansions will also feature a small nation/community controlling the area. This nation isn't really developed but is still modern tech (mostly 80's/90's tech). The territory in question is delimited by the bright red line Is this ok with everyone? Is the expansion too big?

    Exercise Shield Wall

    From: Commander in Chief Jose Manrence of the Imperial Army To: His Imperial Majesty's Minister of Foreign Affairs, Jan Utikar of @Derthalen Salutations, I have been placed in charge of what is now known in the Imperial Forces as Exercise Shield Wall. The HBW has evaluated 2 islands suitable for the exercise: The 1st island, south-east of Seylos, has a climate similar to those of both of our nations. The 2nd island, north of the north-east of Argis, has a mostly polar climate, rendering most operations more complicated than in a "normal" climate, however, it could be an opportunity to train our troops to adapt to hostile climate. I am still planning the exercise and will get back to you about what is to be expected in terms of exercises. I will let you choose the island on which Shield Wall will be held. Here are the list of troops who will attend the exercise: From the 1st IB.: 1st Combat Group 1st Mechanized Infantry Company (100 men)  1st Motorized Infantry Battalion (300 men divided in the 1st and 2nd Motorized Infantry Company (250 men each)) 1st Recon Group  1st Motorized Recon Platoon (20 men) 1st Support Group 1st Combat Engineers Motorized Platoon (30 men) 1st Infantry Support Section (15 men with infantry fighting vehicles) 1st Mobile Mortar Squad (5 men with tracked mortars)  From the Support Battalion:  Military Intelligence Support Group Joint Intelligence Center (50 men) Military Interrogation Cell (50 men) Counter Intelligence Cell (50 men) Operational Intelligence Cell (50 men) Support Engineering Group  Construction Engineer Company (100 men)  Signal Group SIGINT Platoon (50 men) Signal Operations Platoon (50 men) Radar Section (20 men)  +200 imperial guardsmen (astriedanian special forces) May your day be as joyous as Symis, Commander in Chief Jose Manrence of the Imperial Army

    Exercise Shield Wall

    To: Minister of Foreign Affairs of @Derthalen From: His Majesty the Emperor Syra Aïl III of the United Houses of Astriedan, - the High Bureau of War (HBW) - the Imperial Foreign Relations Bureau (IFRB) Salutations, Following recent discussions between diplomats of both of our nations, the Emperor would like to formally invite your armed forces to a joint exercise in neutral territory, as it was suggested in the aformentioned discussions. We believe that this exercise could improve relations between our countries and allow both of our armed forces to improve, learn from each other and increase interoperability. The Emperor will be waiting for your response, in the hope it is favorable to our proposition. May your day be as joyous as Symis, Legislator Julian Merter of the IFRB

    Coronation Celebration

    "- We are starting our final approach your highness. - Thanks, officer, you may dispose." The IAF officer went back to assist the pilot. As Verania went back from the bar to her seat she took a final look at everyone. The imperial speaker was, as usual, silent and perfectly calm. Her lady in waiting and her master of arms were busy giving last minute instructions to the various servants, footmen and security guards of her personnal court. Finally, the wolf tamer was sleeping. As Verania was putting her safety belt on, she turned to her lady in waiting who was sitting down next to her. "- Have you spoke with the tamer? - Yes your highness, he will leave us at the airport to prepare the gift. - Very good." The plane landed without incident and Verania and her court were transported from the airport to the palace. Less than an hour after, they proceeded in the throne room. Verania was getting a bit nervous, this was her first political event. After all, she was only 17, she wasn't even an adult according to the law of her country! But she had to get used to meetings, ceremonies and such. Plus, she had a diplomacy specialized imperial speaker with her. After an unexpectedly quick ceremony, they all went to the palace courtyard. Verania dismissed most of her servants before trying to spot the people that were announced earlier. The first one she spotted was the representative from Tagmatium. He was, like many others, approaching the newly crowned king. "- We should follow his example. said Verania to the imperial speaker - Good idea, princess, I will order our gifts to come with us." He made a few signs to some servants. While some ran away to carry the instructions, a servant approached them with a long gift wrapped in richly decorated tissue. While they waited for the second gift to arrive, Verania spotted the representative from Faramount getting drinks at the bar. She turned to the imperial speaker, visibly confused. "- Are those alcoholic drinks at the bar? -Yes, princess. In most foreign countries, it is usual for high ranking people to drink. - How strange!" Verania used the political language in he last sentence, which allowed her to say the word "strange" but with an intonation that meant "interesting". Suddenly a surprised exclamation near Verania caught her attention. One of the local guests was making a few steps back, revealing a great black wolf of Astriedan calmly walking trough the crowd, his tamer behind him telling guests to not worry, that the wolf had been fed an hour ago and that he was very docile, a remark that made Verania smile because it was only partly true. He was docile because he wasn't hungry, but let one of those get hungry and he will, without hesitation, rip you apart and leave only your bones on the ground. The animal was about half the size of a human and could be an extremly loyal, obedient and strong pet when well fed and educated. Which he was. "- Alright then, let's go meet the new monarch said the princess" And on these words they went to see the new king of Seylos.

    Astriedan's news agency

    Astriedan's News Agency The ANA jingle plays as the ANA logo fades out to a presentator in front of images of various diplomats and salesmen shaking hands. "-Good morning, in the news today the recent announcements made by His Majesty the Emperor Syra Aïl III concerning the recent deal between @Sunset Sea Islands and @Astriedan to install the high tech surveillance system "Synapse" in our country. This continue His Majesty's work to make our country safer trough surveillance. While some human rights organizations have called the Synapse system an "obvious violation of privacy" and "a useless system", the legislator of the Imperial Internal Security Bureau said he was "very happy about this new system", claiming that it will "not leave a bit of privacy to any potential dangerous person. Crowd movement and movement patterns, medical and criminal databases about every astriedanian, and more, this new system will definitely change astriedanian surveillance. The Emperor did not, however, gave the price at which he bought the Synapse system. In other news, the Imperial Army and the Imperial Guard has announced the deployment of the vehicles bought from @Iverica a few months ago. The price of the transaction was still not declared to the public but the Imperial Army Public Relations Office declared that "a modernization of the equipment was necessary". Finally, the Noble Houses Eennso and Atria have announced that great change was to come. We still don't know what this change will be about but our best political analysts are currently trying to make predictions. More infos on all these subjects this evening at 20pm. May your day be as joyous as Symis and glory to Astriedan." The ANA jingle plays again as the ANA logo appears again.

    Astriedan's News Agency Special International Broadcast The ANA intro music plays, followed by a broadcast of the Emperor Syra Aïl III on his throne in the Aïl Palace. After a few seconds of silence the Emperor starts to speak in a solemn voice: "Good morning, I am speaking to the nations and citizens of the world in the name of the United Houses of Astriedan and their loyal citizens. Many of you may have been surprised by the sudden disparition of Astriedan from the international scene a few months ago. A disparition even more surprising as our country was actively taking part in international treaties such as ATARA and international trade. However, this disparition was a deliberate choice that had to be taken. Under my order, Astriedan was closed off, communication with the outside were cut off and only few ships were allowed to enter our territorial waters. This was a necessity to protect Astriedan from a dangerous ennemy: traitors. Following the Red Crisis, I formed a secret group of loyal officers from the military and intelligence services dedicated to investigate on all possible corrupted and/or traitorous individuals in the administration and the defense forces. However, what we discovered was of an unprecedented scale. A gigantic network ran by smaller nobles with the only purpose of preparing a coup to destroy the imperial institutions and go back to the pre-imperial house system. In the face of another crisis, I had no choice but to apply emergency measures. While Astriedan was cut off from the world to avoid any tentative of calling for help or to flee the country, a purge was conducted, eliminating almost all the leaders of the traitorous network and a good part of their subordinates. The purge still continue to this day but the imminent danger of a coup has been averted. I now announce the return of Astriedan in international affairs and the creation of the Imperial Corruption Overwatch Bureau (ICOB) as a part of the High Bureau of Security (HBS). Thank you for your attention and glory to Astriedan." The national anthem plays as an image of the astriedanian flag is displayed on screen.

    Military exercises

    So, I thought of a few exercises @Derthalen: -Field exercices both by between army types (Sea, ground and air) and interarms. For example: naval formations, resupply exercises, formation exercises (for air warfare) etc. -Command post exercises (I didn't fully understood what they consist of but they seem to be quite common in exercises. Maybe @Gallambria could tell me about it?) -Special forces exercises (paratrooping, infiltration behind ennemy lines, sabotage, amphibious assaults and stuff) -Intelligence training (SIGINT, HUMINT, counter intelligence, sabotage and spying) Tell me what you think or what you would add.

    Military exercises

    Yeah I understood that but I won't send my whole navy or air force, that's just it. Now, like FdL said, we need a reason for this exercise to happen, any ideas? Also, what would you think the actual exercise consist of? P.S.: I got confused in my last post here are the army units who will come: From the 1st IB: 1st Combat Group 1st Mechanized Infantry Company (100 men) 1st Motorized Infantry Battalion (300 men divided in the 1st and 2nd Motorized Infantry Company (250 men each)) 1st Recon Group 1st Motorized Recon Platoon (20 men) 1st Support Group 1st Combat Engineers Motorized Platoon (30 men) 1st Infantry Support Section (15 men with infantry fighting vehicles) 1st Mobile Mortar Squad (5 men with tracked mortars) From the Support Battalion: Military Intelligence Support Group Joint Intelligence Center (50 men) Military Interrogation Cell (50 men) Counter Intelligence Cell (50 men) Operational Intelligence Cell (50 men) Support Engineering Group Construction Engineer Company (100 men) Signal Group SIGINT Platoon (50 men) Signal Operations Platoon (50 men) Radar Section (20 men) +200 special forces Normally that shouldn't be over 1090 men so a bit over battalion then but SOF are commanded sepparately. I can add NBC troops if we exercise on that (Astriedan is pretty good at biological weapons)

    Military exercises

    1 battalion per participant? I could bring The 1st Infantry Brigade and the Support Brigade. Plus special forces (around 200 men), a bit of my air force and of my navy. I can lower down the numbers if needed.
