KDC Begins developing a new carrier for Bhalman

Recommended Posts

KDC HQ, Kherson...



The long table is surrounded by a group of scientists and engineers. At the head is the chairman, looking pleased at the latest foreign investment in his company...


Chairman: "Here we have it, we must design and construct 2 carriers for Bhalman. Nuclear generators will be fitted as standard... Ketsun!... get on to Serekan for the nuclear license, they'll surely give us one. Team 1, you are to design the hull, team 2, you are to approach the MOI for materials, team 3 make the neccessary weaponry arrangements. Other matters will be dealt with after these three are out of the way... don't screw this one up!" (a referral to the IJMCs requirement for a tilt rotor)




Three days later...


Chairman: "How are things coming along?"


Ketsun:"Serekan granted the license, and we will be able to go ahead with the reactor power... but they also warned us, if we don't meet the deadline, the contract goes to BCI".


Chairman:"We'll show them, what about team 1?"


T1: We have drawn up this computer generation of the hull, we will forward it to the Bhali defence ministry to see what they think:

Chairman:"good, what about team 2?"


T2:Serekan have given us full backing, the resources will be supplied as neccessary.


Chairman:"Team 3 are still working on weapons systems, so that concludes this meeting".

'Chairman, Sir! we have been sent the first payment - the Bhali navy approves the design. The MOD in Serekan sent us their congratulations, along with an order for 5 to be used in the assault carrier role'.


Chairman: Excellent! Begin construction immediately, tell Serekan we will start modifying the design immediately, and ask them if we can expect to see this ship put on the export market".

Meanwhile at the Caldari Ministry of War on the Capitalworld...


"Minister Erinen, may I distrub you for a moment?" baffled and timid informer who thought this would be his last breath, but it was not. "Come In, What is it Lt. Okazi?" requesed Erinen in a strict but somewhat calm temper.


"Minister Erinen, we have intercepted the holo-nets and have found a company that maybe able to completely refit and reconstruct the ancient Terra Navy, now no more than a coast guard off the shores of the Haki Colony..." explained Okazi. "I see and what kind of product may this be?" stated Erinen. "Well, my Minister, its a battlecarrier which should be able to hold and be able to launch some of our Swiftdeaths off of as well as a capable warship in its own right." finished the Lt. "I see... Hmmm...can you get me the specs..." requested Erinen. "I have them right here sir!" replied Okazi. "Thank You." Erinen ponders and analizes the battlecarriers specs and capiablites. "Okazi, I want you to get me a linkup to KDC in Ide Jima." "Yes Sir!"

Meanwhile at the Launching Ceremony...


"It brings me great pleasure to be launching Bhalman's very own new Battlecarriers, named the Pride of Bhalman and the Defense of Port Nain. Thes battlecarriers shall be enjoyed by the Bhali Ministry of Defense and will contiune building up our navy to protect our homeland."


"These are times when war can happen over small issues and Bhalman must be ready to protect and help in these situitions. As you all know, yesterday Port Nain, Xani Kalki and San Juan were attacked by terrorists and we must be extra careful as of now. Thank You. At this time I would like to launch them and accept them into the Bhali Navy and hope that these proud vessels serve Bhalman well in its time of crisis in terms of terrorism and in the international spectrum. I shall address the nation and the International Community tomorrow on a more in-depth look at yesterday's terrorist attacks."
