[OOC] Verde Blockade


Recommended Posts

@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.

Thanks @Girkmand!

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.
