MEDIA RELEASE - GOVERNMENT STATEMENT ON THE SHOOTING DOWN OF
FLEUR DE LYS AIRCRAFT.

Today, The Prime Minister along with his National Security Advisor and the National Security Council held an emergency meeting in regards to the disaster that took place today in @Derthalen airspace. Officials from the Armed Forces, Gallambrian Intelligence Agencies, and representatives from other Government ministries attended. They discussed what more we have established about the nature of the incident; the latest information on the precursors to the incident; and progress towards a credible investigation into the incident.

While it is too early to be categoric about the cause of the incident, the growing weight of evidence suggests that the @Fleur de Lys aircraft was shot down by a Derthalan Air Force fighter aircraft. This is backed up further by information provided to the National Security Council by Royal Gallambrian Air Force's Airspace Surveillance Section that stated, that there was no prior communication between the two aircraft and that the Derthalan Air Force fighter aircraft acted without provocation.

We believe that it is vital that an international team of specialist investigators are able to access the wreckage to establish the full facts of what  happened and to ensure that the remains of the victims are returned to their loved ones as soon as possible.

Furthermore, the Prime Minister and the National Security Council has asked the Chief of Defence Staff to provide support of any kind to Fleur de Lys and to step up concentrated Airspace Surveillance of the airspace approaches over Derthalan.

MEDIA RELEASE - BURNETT GOVERNMENT TO ESTABLISH NATIONAL SPACE AGENCY

 

The Burnett Government has committed to establishing a national space agency to ensure Gallambria has a long-term plan to grow its domestic space industry.

The Minister for Science and Innovation, the Hon Kylie Bormann, said the establishment of a space agency is one of the key issues being examined by the Expert Reference Group appointed to review Gallambria's space industry capability.

"The global space industry is growing rapidly and it's crucial that Gallambria is part of this growth," Minister Bormann said.

"A national space agency will ensure we have a strategic long-term plan that supports the development and application of space technologies and grows our domestic space industry."

"The agency will be the anchor for our domestic coordination and the front door for our international engagement."

Former GSRA Chief Dr Stephen Phillips is chairing the Reference Group, and its review is well advanced.

The Reference Group has sought views from across the country from industry, government and society, which will be used to inform our plan to expand this important and exciting sector.

The Reference Group has received almost 200 written submissions in response to its issues paper, and more than 400 people have been consulted through roundtables in each state.

Meetings have also been held with key stakeholders, including federal and state governments.

Feedback from the extensive consultation process has overwhelmingly shown the need for the establishment of a national space agency.

The Reference Group will now develop a charter for the space agency for inclusion in the wider strategy being brought forward by the end of May 2018.

HMGS Carnegie gets primed for East Alharu Operations

HMGS Carnegie is being primed for engagement with regional allies in the East Alharu region.

The Tawanui-based frigate has been in the West Adlantic Ocean operating with allied navies from @Variota, @Iverica and @Prymont.

Now, the County-Class frigate is alongside in Variota at the Gallambrian Defence Support Unit Ranjekaat (GDSUR) and is undergoing routine maintenance to prepare her for the next stage of her deployment.

This is also a chance for the ship's company to recharge after nearly four-and-a-half months at sea - during which they have conducted operations in Region.

Carnegie is the first RGN warship deployed to East Alharu this year. "This mid-deployment stop allows the ship's company to enjoy some well-deserved leave," said Executive Office, Lieutenant Commander Sarah Donnelly.

 

D0alvFB.jpg

HMGS Carnegie has essential work carried out on her during the mid deployment stand down period in Variota.

"Each member of the crew will enjoy two weeks of leave as an essential component of balancing service life with the needs of individuals and families.

"Having been at sea for long periods of time and working over numerous weekends this is a very welcome opportunity."

Hot from Operation Sovereign Borders, the stop in Variota marks the half-way point in a nine-month deployment for Carnegie.

Carnegie is making the most of GDSUR's facilities and - as is usual when a RGN ship is deployed for a long period - she is being given a lick of paint and a general spruce up ahead of vital maritime security operations in the region.

A local company has been brought into provide the necessary service, but, while not taking leave, the ship's sailors will be working normal hours, aiding in readying the frigate for the missions ahead.

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."

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.

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.

Gallambria to join International Maritime Security Mission in
the Azure Sea

The Burnett Government is reaffirming its commitment to freedom of navigation and safe passage of the seas by announcing it will support an international maritime security mission.

This mission will see His Majesty's Armed Forces work alongside its international partners to assure the security of merchant vessels in piracy hot spots around the world.

Gallambria's contribution will include the deployment of:

  • A P-1A Neputune Maritime Surveillance Aircraft to Orioni for 6 months from the beginning of September;
  • A Gallambrian naval task group to be deployed to the Azure Sea from November;

The Government has been concerned with incidents involving shipping within the region over the past year. This destabilising behaviour is a threat to Gallambrian interests in the region.

We have been working closely with our allies and partners, particularly Orioni, on this issue, which impacts global security and stability.

It is in Gallambria's interest to work with international partners to ensure that vessel's are able to navigate the seas, without fear of attack and impedence.

This will be an enhancement of our existing and longstanding contribution to counter-piracy and counter-terrorism missions in the region, and Gallambrian forces will always conduct themselves in accordance with their international legal obligations.

Working with partners, we will play our part in shaping a better future for Gallambria and Gallambrians, as well as our region and the world.

RELEASE OF THE DEFENCE STRATEGIC UPDATE 2021


The Burnett Government will invest £270 billion over the next 10 years to upgrade the capability and potency of His Majesty's Armed Forces (Armed Forces) to keep Gallambrians safe while protecting the country's interests in a changing global environment.

In its 2021 Defence Strategic Update, released on Friday, the Burnett Government signaled a key change in Gallambria's defence posture, as it priorities the Marenai-Adlantic region.

The update provides a new plan to tackle Gallambria's defence challenges while increasing investment and personnel across the entire Armed Forces.

Prime Minister Nadia Burnett said the Strategic Update would also mean more job opportunities as Gallambria's increasingly capable and sovereign defence industry grows.

"My first priority is keeping Gallambrians safe," the Prime Minister said.

"The Government is committed to ensuring the Armed Forces is equipped to meet our growing regional challenges in the Marenai-Adlantic, and to achieve our goals of regional stability, peace and security.

"Whether it's our Marenai-Adlantic Security Partnership Program, our engagement with regional neighbours, or our deepening cooperation with partners new and old, our focus must be on the Marenai-Adlantic - it's where we live and where our interests are.

"Our new strategic defence policy ensures that the Marenai-Adlantic is front of mind for our Armed Forces and is prioritised in the decisions we make on our deployments and our force structure and capabilities.

"We are also providing Defence with the funding certainty it needs to deliver on our new strategic defence policy.

"This will ensure we are able to shape our environment, deter actions against our interests and, if required, respond with military force.

"More broadly, we are ensuring Defence has more durable supply chains, while further strengthening Gallambria's sovereign defence industry to create more high-tech Gallambrian jobs and enhance the Armed Forces self-reliance."

These new policy settings will be a long-term undertaking for Defence with implementation already underway.

Secretary of State for Defence, Charlotte O'neill said recent natural disasters and domestic crises has introduced a further dimension to what national defence entails, now and into the future.

"Defence thinking, strategy and planning have shifted gears to respond to our constantly changing and deteriorating strategic and defence environment," Secretary O'Neill said.

"Gallambria's security environment is changing quickly, with militarisation, disruptive technological change and new grey zone threats making our region less safe.

"That's why this Government will invest in more lethal and long-range capabilities to hold adversary forces and infrastructure at risk further from Gallambria, including longer-range strike weapons, offensive cyber capabilities and area denial capabilities.

"We will also invest in capabilities to give Gallambria better awareness of our region and to support regional engagement, while substantially increasing our air and sea lift capability to ensure we can rapidly respond to events across our region.

"These investments will provide significantly increased opportunity for Gallambria's Defence industry, which the Burnett Government is committed to further strengthening."

Gallambria's defence industry is growing further, with over 5,500 business employing approximately 40,000 staff. An additional 20,000 Gallambrian companies directly benefit from Defence investment and, when further downstream suppliers are included, the benefits flow to approximately 100,000 workers.

Defence planning will prioritise Gallambria's immediate region - ranging from the north-eastern Adlantic Ocean, through maritime and mainland Marenesia, and Amutia region as well as the south west expanse of the South Oriental Ocean.

As a result, the new strategic policy will require force structure and capability adjustments, which are focused on the region, responding to grey-zone challenges that threaten our national interests, the possibility of high-intensity conflict and domestic crises.

      Looking at expanding Gallambria's reach 'globally' for political, economic and strategic reasons.
      I have an interest in these three islands/island groups. My intention is not to land grab, however to expand into islands/areas that would extend my nations reach into
      the northern hemisphere, but also allowing nations to access the Marenesian island group.
      Below is the plan I have for my expansion.

       
      As these islands are deemed "Terra Nullis" - I will be RP'ing the claims through maritime exploration by Government and Naval maritime forces.

      Santhope House
      The KIng's Equerry - "Your Majesty, The Prime Minister and the Minister for Defence."
      The two Ministers enter the King's private study. Both Ministers and the Equerry bow to the King.
      Albert II - "Prime Minister."
      Sir Anthony - "Your Majesty."
      Albert II - "Sir Henry."
      Sir Henry - "Your Majesty"
      They both bow and shake the King's hand.
      Albert II - "How can I help you Gentlemen?"
      Sir Anthony - "Well Your Majesty, as you are well aware, the Navy is undertaking a survey operation in the northwest to map out the waterways through the island groups. The commander of the task group, Captain Peter Blackwell, was in contact with the First Sea Lord and the Chief of the Defence Staff stating that the islands were to the best of his knowledge uninhabited. He sort permission from the Board, to extend the operation to a joint service operation to undertake a land survey of the island groups. Which the Board, after consultation with Sir Henry and the Attorney-General, gave their blessing.
      Sir Henry - "Sir, If I may. (Rolls out a maritime chart of the area, and points to the four islands). The original operation was to chart the water ways surrounding these four island groups. Part of the job they have is to also to gather information about indigenous maritime traffic, which when Captain Blackwell submitted his report, was non-existent, which lead him to believe that these islands were uninhabited.
      Albert II - "So Gentlemen, you're both telling me, that we've had these islands within our sphere of influence for the last one hundred and fifty years, and we haven't done anything about it?
      Sir Henry - "Not necessarily Sir. (He pulls a ring-bound report from his brief case). According to the survey reports along with imagery taken by our Air Forces UAV's, it says that up until at least ten to fifteen years ago, they were to some extent inhabited."
      Albert II - "Well what happened to them?"
      Sir Anthony - "Well Sir, we believe they may have migrated further west to either the Alharun or Aurelian continents."
      Albert II - "Ok, So this obviously doesn't require anything done on my part, so what's the matter then Gentlemen?"
      Sir Anthony - "Sir, Both sides of the house, the Defence Board, and members of industry have approached the cabinet pushing for us to make claim to the islands. Having said that, the Cabinet is of the opinion as well. According to the Land Survey reports, there are large mineral deposits on the islands, as well as from a defence point of view, they are positioned in a strategically important area, which would allow us to project our forces. So, we've come today Sir, for you to sign an instrument declaring that these island groups are Terra Nullis and they have been claimed by the Gallambrian Monarchy, as external territories."
      Albert II - "Right then, well thank you Gentlemen, this will need to be discussed with the Privy Council, and Sir Jock will be in touch with you. Thank you."
      Sirs Anthony & Henry - "Your Majesty."
      They both bow and exit the study.
      Sir Anthony whispering to Sir Henry - "That went better than expected."
