  1. Ministry of Defence blocked Centre Alliance minister, Roger Josephson's request on cabinet confidentiality grounds The MoD wrongly kept the Army chiefs diary secret from a minister who was investigating the handling of a multi-billion pound arms contract. The handling of a £3.6bn contract to build Gallambria's next generation Main Battle Tank met with criticism last year, after local defence contractor GAe Systems said its significantly cheaper proposal was shunned by the government in favour of a @Iverican Firm, ARX Arms. The government later attempted to involve GAe Systems in the work, but negotiations broke down. In an attempt to uncover who top defence figures had met in the lead-up to the controversy, the Centre Alliance minister, Roger Josephson requested the diaries of the army chief and the head of defence's capability acquisition and sustainment group for May 2018, under freedom of information laws. But the Ministry of Defence hid behind cabinet confidentiality grounds to block Josephson's requests. Documents that reveal the decisions or deliberations of cabinet are fully exempt from FOI. Defence argued the diaries would reveal the dates of cabinet meetings, and so were exempt. But Josephson appealed the case to the information watchdog, arguing the dates of cabinet meetings in no way revealed decisions or discussions. He told The Gallambrian, the Ministry's behaviour was an example of "secrecy creep". "I support the need for cabinet confidence ... but this is secrecy creep," Josephson said. "If you give an inch, they'll take a mile." The minister told the information commissioner the Ministry's claims were "as erroneous as claims that revealing the location of cabinet meetings ... or the catering requirements of a cabinet meeting ... somehow breach 'cabinet confidentiality'". The Information Commissioner, Agnes Faulkner, agreed. "The information merely records the appointments that have been scheduled for a particular day and do not contain any further information as to what was considered or discussed in those meetings," Faulkner found. "Accordingly, I am not persuaded that disclosure of the information contained in the documents would reveal a cabinet deliberation or decision." Defence confirmed it would comply with the judgment and release the diaries to Josephson.
  2. MEDIA RELEASE The Gallambrian Space Agency (GSA) and the Royal Gallambrian Air Force, along with it's @Seylosian counterparts have signed a Statement of Strategic Intent with Gardner Aerospace, as part of a mission to grow Gallambria's and Seylos' space industry. Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, the Right Honorable Patrick Morlington MP said the signing with Region's largest aerospace company signified the global ambitions of the Agency. "Gardner's ongoing commitment to support science, technology , engineering and maths education, including developing a skilled and diverse workforce is vital to the growth and progress of Gallambria's economy," Secretary Morlington said. "The statement beings an important partnership with Gardner, and emphasises the value of its ongoing research and development in collaboration with universities and research institutions across Gallambria and Seylos. "Gardner is a major player in both Gallambria's space and wider aerospace industry. Across Gallambria, Gardner employs over 3,500 people and in 2018 invested £124 million in research and development." Head of the Gallambrian Space Agency, Dr Stephen Phillips CG, said that signing of the statement was an example of how collaboration and engagement across countries is an important aspect of the growing space economy, both in Gallambria and Seylos, as well as internationally. The Government is aiming to triple the size of the Gallambrian space sector to £24 billion and increase employment to 15,000 by 2030, as part of our plan to create more jobs and growth in emerging sectors in the economy.
  3. MEDIA RELEASE: PYEMCGOWAN TRAVEL ADVISORY ISSUED After a series of recent high profile assassinations in @PyeMcGowan, The Home Office has updated its travel advisory from "Exercise a high degree of caution" (or "Yellow Level") to "Do not travel" (or "Red Level"). This level means that the security situation is extremely dangerous. This may be due to a high threat of terrorist attack, ongoing armed conflict, violent social unrest, or critical levels of violent crime. It is often a combination of these. You should not travel to this location. If you are already in a 'do not travel' area, you should consider leaving. If you choose to travel despite this advice, you should exercise extreme caution and seek independent, professional security advice which may include hiring personal protection. Before you leave Gallambria, make sure you have an up-to-date will, an enduring power of attorney, and designate appropriate insurance beneficiaries. Ensure you have robust mitigation measures in place and a detailed emergency management plan. The Gallambrian government is often unable to provide consular assistance in such extreme locations, nor can the Government provide security assistance or advice. This is your responsibility. In the event of a crisis, departure options may become severely limited. You are responsible for ensuring you are able to depart independently and that your travel documentation remains up-to-date. You should not expect that the Gallambrian government will facilitate your departure. For this level, any travel by Gallambrian officials is subject to high-level approval. It includes rigorous risk assessment and movement planning usually involving the use of armoured vehicles and personal protection. You are likely to require a specialised insurance policy for travel to 'do not travel' destinations. Some travel insurance policies may not cover you for 'do not travel' destinations.
  4. MEDIA RELEASE - RGAF'S Jaguar ECR.7 electronic attack aircraft achieves IOC The Ministry of Defence (MoD) has announced that the Royal Gallambrian Air Force's (RGAF) Jaguar ECR.7 electronic attack aircraft has achieved Initial Operating Capability (IOC). Built by the Gallambrian Aircraft Corporation (GAC), the Jaguar ECR.7 is currently only in service with the RGAF with views to make the aircraft available to allied air forces. RGAF operates a fleet of 36 Jaguars from RGAF Station Prestwick in Mercia. The aircraft is design to disrupt, deceive or deny military electronic systems, including radars and communications. According to RGAF Chief of Staff, Air Chief Marshal Mohd Al-Elamin Kahn, the IOC marks a significant achievement in the MoD's efforts to enhance its joint electronic warfare capability. Al-Elamin Kahn said: "Over time, this aircraft will work with army and navy platforms to enhance our ability to control the electronic environment, and where necessary, deny or degrade the electronic systems of adversaries. "This will provide a capability edge by enhancing tactical options to reduce risks to Gallambrian and partner maritime, land and air forces in more complex and high-tech conflicts of the future." The Jaguar is an electronic attack aircraft equipped with purpose-built radio-frequency jamming pods and advance weapons. Based on the Panther GR.6 airframe, the Jaguar features multiple enhancements, including additional avionics, enhanced radio frequency receivers and an improved communications suite. The aircraft can offer increased protection to forces while also improving their situational awareness. RGAF can use the Jaguars in support of a range of defence tasks, from peacekeeping operations to air superiority denial operations. As part of the Air Force's Plan Solomon, the RGAF will receive a further 12 Jaguars from GAC, which will increase the fleet to 48.

  5. MEDIA RELEASE LAUNCH OF PLAN SOLOMON A strategy to transform the Royal Gallambrian Air Force for the future, Plan Solomon, was today released by the Chief of Air Staff, ACM Sir Mohammed Al-Elamin Kahn KCStG CG AFC AM AdC. Releasing Plan Solomon in Tamworth ahead of tomorrow's annual Air Power Symposium, ACM Al-Elamin Kahn said the much-anticipated plan would set the Air Force on a path of transformation for the future. "In the next 5 years, the Royal Gallambrian Air Force will have one of the most advanced aircraft fleets in the world. This will make our Air Force operations fundamentally different. "We cannot be complacent, by thinking that simply having the next generation of aircraft technology, will create an advanced Air Force. Over the last few years, we have bought new fifth generation aircraft into service, with more joining the fleet in the coming years. "These aircraft will bring more data and situational awareness than ever before. We need to be able to share this information across aircraft platforms through networking, and enable good decisions without being overwhelmed by the high volumes of data. "We need to work across Defence, to create integration with Army and Navy's technologies to deliver the best possible options for Government from these advanced aircraft. "We need to transform ourselves into a truly integrated, networked force that can realise the potential of this technology, and maintain our position as masters of the air domain," he said. Plan Solomon is not the 'final plan' for the future. Plan Solomon is the first step for the Air Force to meet the challenges of the future. More work will continue in 2019, to further develop the three themes: harnessing the combat potential of an integrated force; developing an innovative and empowered workforce; and changing the way we acquire and sustain capability. "We cannot ignore the need to transform the Air Force to maintain our position at the leading edge of air power. The changes we make under Plan Solomon will allow us to maintain our ability to deliver air power for Government, when and where it is needed."
