[OOC] Verde Blockade

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

@Iverica @Variota @Girkmand @Ahrana @Asgeirria @Andalla @Gallambria

 

@Orioni suggested that I make this thread in order to make our communication more efficient and to organise everything into one place - while Discord is great, I understand the importance of having more structure to our discussion.


To sum up what's happened so far:

  • Currently, as I understand, Iverica and Girkmand have naval vessels at the mouth of the Verde, who are accompanied by aerial units from Iverica, Prymont, and Gallambria.
  • Variota has a tentative blockade at his end of the sea, which does have a name that currently escapes me. Reason I say tentative is because I'm unsure what exactly he's doing, whether his presence is physical right now or it's more like "we have a 123km radius that Ahrana can't go into - if they do, we send ships". Clarification on that would be great. has anti-ship land measures, a physical presence in the Keelpijppassage, and a 300km cordon sanitaire from the coast against Ahranaian ships.
  • Ahrana is sending a Southern Ahranaian Fleet to Xara, in which an aircraft carrier has turned around to return home and the remaining vessels are flying the Asgeirrian flag. Unsure whether they're still going to attempt entry into the Verde Sea or are instead heading to Asgeirria. A sizeable Prymontian convoy is in hot pursuit to join the blockade.
  • Asgeirria is sending an armed but not aggressive naval convoy to Xara to help modernise infrastructure. It is believed that Iverica will allow this convoy entry into the Verde.

After discussing this with Orioni, I've been informed of something that will be quite the issue. Currently, the Argic Ocean will be frozen over due to its cold climate. It's unclear how global warming is impacting our version of the world, so clarification around that would be nice but not vital. Iverica and I are currently working on retrospectively creating an initiative that dates back a few decades, that basically works to clear cargo routes through the Argic Ocean during winter months so Prymont, Ahrana, and The Hellenic Rus don't see economic disaster every winter. I'd like to work with Iverica and Ahrana to discuss past relations with this initiative, and future possibilities. 
Anyway, these icebreakers would've been working throughout the winter to create safe routes for cargo ships to import and export goods to and from the Canamo region. This will mean that there is a somewhat safe route through the Argic Ocean; Prymontian naval vessels will be escorted by a fleet of icebreakers to ensure their safe passage, but I'll need to know from Ahrana how he's getting his ships through safely. This also ties in with my recent letter to Iverica requesting that I move some of my fleet to a more permanent location on his shores, to avoid this issue in the future.
 
 
Any further input from anyone is welcomed, alongside hints and tips of who is planning on doing what.

As it stands, the Keelpijppassage (or Esophaguspassage for all you silly non-Variotans) is being blockaded through dual-means. On one side, it's anti-ship land measures (missiles, artillery) with a range to cover the entire width of the passage. These have been put on alert by military command and IF, somehow, Ahranian ships end up detected and will not turn around, will fire on them. The other part is the various detachments of the Faai'nere Marienemagt including the Huisselant's Magt aircraft carrier that operate around Variota. For now, part of the Faai'nere Marienemagt including two of our helicopter carriers have been moved into permanent positions in the Passage with the Huisselant's Magt and its support vessels covering the Adlantic Ocean (?, not entirely sure what to call that section) part of the Variotan coast. IC'ly, the government has declared a cordon sanitaire with a range of three-hundred kilometers from the coast against rogue (Ahranian) ships. This is primarily meant for the Passage, as three-hundred kilometers covers the entire width of it.

I've not really expanded on that due to the fact that there's really no chance of Ahranian vessels ending up in my neck of the woods. However, I'll see about making a post in which the government openly announces the cordon sanitaire.

Here's a map of initial ship deployments / deployment plans that I gathered from public posts made on @Ahrana's news broadcasts and the IC Verde Blockade thread.

It's not 100% accurate, but I think it may help visualize the situation. The path markers are simply there to represent the predicted destinations of the fleets at the moment. The dates next to the unit names represent the time when the post describing that particular unit's actions were made, and thus signifies their last known location.

Hey, that's a good idea! Although I have some minor changes I'd like to put in before we make this canon. That being said, it's a great map that certainly would help put things in perspective.

Some details I'd like to be clear on:

1. A total of 6 Iverican submarines were activated. 2 were deployed with Deiargon and two with ATG Del Pilar.

2. Out of the 4 Iverican PTUs shown in the map, only two are blockading in the mouth of the Verde, the other two are maintaining coastal patrols around our northern and western coasts, together with the remaining 2 submarines.

I can be more clear on this when I come out with my ORBAT.

 

Thanks @Girkmand!

Are Commonwealth ships on that map?

I'm not technically participating in the blockade proper, but I do have ships in the Mediargic.

I was admittedly mostly focused on TRIDENT. I'll be sure to include your ships in the next update, if I get around to it.

I'll make an effort to ask around and verify my data if I make another one of these.

Thanks to you both for clarifying this.

The ships will not be included it involved my nation and I have stated that I do not reconise the fact he has done this. Sorry to be a real jerk but im starting to realise that if my nation is involved in it then I must agree to it.

the ships that were gifted the @Asgeirria are property of his Government now, the Ahranaian Personal on the ship including the COs are there to train the Asgeirrian personal on how to operate the Ahranaian Ships in the best efficiency. So whatever he decides to do with them is his decisions they are no longer my ships. Just for the records really.

    • President Larue's speech censored On Sunday 23.9.2018, President Larue gave a speech during the second September government discussions. The government discussions are public discussions where members of the national congress, Shffahkia's tetracameral legislature, discuss public of the direction of Shffahkia. The government discussions are usually ended by the Premier-Dirigeant's speech, however, due to recent political changes, the president of the union has been the one to finish these discussions.  The president set several goals to the government that differed from the political norm at the top of which would be ending Isolationism, opening Shffahkian society and moving the nation towards a more liberal direction. According to the Shffahkian council (Conseil Sfakien) these points were against the principles of Collectivism, and therefore, had to be censored. Despite receiving applause and praise throughout the country, Larue's speech has been censored an almost all public formats.  The reason why Larue's speech was censored despite her holding the final say on almost all matters of state is the Shffahkian Council. The Shffahkian Council is responsible for the overseeing of the implementation of  Collectivism in Shffahkia. The council has on multiple occasion shown dissatisfaction towards Larue and her new government and has also rejected many of her administration's attempts on reform. This face-off between the president and the council shows that the two have vastly different views on Collectivism. This difference can be explained by Larue's rapid rise to power which has left many members of the "old guard" unprepared. How ever change might be coming as and agreed-upon date has been set for the next Senate elections. Within the Larue Amendments, the Senate was granted to use the highest power in the country under the president. This means that if President Larue manages to fill the Senate with enough supporters to get a five to six vote passed, she can appoint new members to the Shffahkian Council which would give her control of two of the four chambers. The censorship directed towards Larue's supporters has revealed a divide within Shffahkia. With the absence of Nikolao Kondukanto who didn't allow political disagreement, Shffahkia is divided into those who believe in Larue's liberal interpretation of Collectivism and to those who support conservative Collectivism.
    • PNN HISTORY MADE SHORT  The History of Transargic Oil (TAO), The First Monopoly in PyeMcGowan Transargic Oil, Standard Amenities as it was called in the beginning, was founded by Ronald Jenkins in 1915 as a gold mining company in the gold rich province of Wendover. Jenkins was a privlidged man as he was born in 1870 into a rich family that owned many gold mines in the Wendover Gold Rush. He worked for his fathers company, Jenkins Mining, as a CFO until 1900 when he became a stock broker in Charleston, there he made upwards of 3 million Poggles, worth 10 Million today. He quit the stock market and married to Martha Jenkins in 1910. After he moved back to Wendover, just down the road from his parents house, he purchased 25 km² of land in Southern Wendover. From there with only half his budget he went on a spending spree hiring any able persons and every digging machine in sight! He spent two years digging, and he did find some gold, but not enough, he decided to dig all across his land and didn’t get very deep in enough time, causing a gigantic loss of over 5 million Poggles( Worth 15 million today)! Eventually, with help from his family, he got on track and dug in the same area before moving on. This was a massive success! He made 10 Million in his first year of digging(30 Million today) but gold and silver was losing its value, but Ronald met an old friend from the stock Exchange, his name was David Georgeson and he was making it big with oil. This inspired  Jenkins to sell his depleated land in Wendover and buy oil rich land in the northern provinces. From there in 1915 he founded Transargic Oil, and begun digging for oil. At its peak in 1924 TAO was producing 5 million barrels of oil a week which was too much for PyeMcGowan, so TAO started exporting across the Argic Sea and throughout mainland Argis. Over the years TAO became more powerful and started buying up all of the oil companies in PyeMcGowan, effectively becoming a monopoly. But in 1939 the Bank of PyeMcGowan’s Corporate regulation committee dismantled the organisation into many smaller groups. But Ronald kept shares in them and became very rich in his later years. Jenkins died in 1950, which was also the year that communists took control of PyeMcGowan and started executing all wealthy businessmen. As his family, including his son, George Jenkins and daughter Andrea Jenkins, moved to the Leverne Islands, along with over 2 million residents including the royal family, they took with them a sum of over 14 Billion Poggles! The expanded Family moved back to PyeMcGowan in 1963 after the communist government was overthrown. Now members of the Jenkins Family are in top positions across the world including Board members of United Corp Edward Jenkins and Simon Jenkins. Of course the Jenkins were a charitable bunch as they founded the Jenkins International Foundation, which funds orphanages and refugee housing across the world.

With this her title is strange but will reflect her status in the Federation as a Representative/Ambassador in Diplomatic Situations. As for the Official Seal of her Status it is the Lesser Coat of Arms of the Imperial Kingdom with the Federations Governmental Seal within it.)   To: King George of PyeMcGowan From: Aleksandra of Ahrana, Grand Duchess of all Ahrana and Emissary of the Federation of Ahrana Classification:  Level 2   Greetings, Your Majesty and most Honerable King George on behalf of the Federal Government and the People of Ahrana I extend my hand in congratulating you on the succession of the Throne and to the Halls of Power of Government.

After the Life has been used it is our feats that we accomplished in that life that will be in remembrance till the end of all life as it is what He wills it.  It has been decided by the Secretary General and the Federal Government that I, the former Queen of the Imperial Kingdom and Head of the Imperial Household, be the one to represent The Federation at such a prestigious event. The Secretary General has asked me to present you with a personal letter from her and gift from all of Ahrana.

    • Polo extended out his hand for a handshake and reprocated Ms. Colt's sentiment: "It was also an honor to meet you, Secretary-General, and I likewise hope that our nations to continue to collaborate openly. We will be keeping up with the draft of the future trade agreement, and I hope that you win re-election Ms. Colt." In the end, the meeting had been surprisingly productive. Ahrana agreed to open its borders to RFE, it would soon be holding general elections, a trade agreement was discussed, and the Ahranian government seemed on the path towards stability. The Mauridivian government was absolutely thrilled that he regressive and autocratic policies and alliances formed under Ivanoff were now being thrown away; Ahrana had distanced itself from Derthalen, and civil rights were once again being respected to their fullest capacity. Although Ahrana had a severe drug problem that would require careful handling, it would seem that the nation was overall recovering from the last year of turmoil, and Mauridiviah was willing to help Ahrana make the transition possible. There were only a few states in middle Argis that weren't complete backwaters, and Ahrana was one of them. If Ahrana's democracy lasts, it would be a major victory for democracy worldwide. As such, at least to the Mauridivian government, the risk of fostering a close relationship with Ahrana was more than worth it.
