    834 KB Dictator Quest Part 5 Grand Leader Quest !tr.t4dJfuU 01/30/12(Mon)12:15 No.17736661  
    You can't keep us down! We will dictate the fuck out of you until your a peaceful, prosperous nation. /tg/ So far you have proven being a dictator isn't such a bad thing for the populace of a nation... it has been a weekend, lets see where we go now.

    Info posts to follow so everything is in one thread.

    Nation: Republic of Zanzi
    Information: Free Religion! Republic!
    Resources: Average Resources. Specific to come soon.
    Location: West Africa near Ivory Coast. Fictional location. To be mapped.
    Political Ties: Russia is a close friend - when they remember we exist... China has sold/loaned equipment to us before.
    Era: Near Future / Modern. Late 2012.

    Leader: President Negasso Garawa. Also known as "Xavier" - Elected President For Life.
    Race: Black Male
    History: Graduated from Moscow University with a business major. Has contacts within the Russian government.


    Still accepting proposals for flag designs (MSPaint them.) - No offensive flags please. Must 'fit' the logic of a national standard.



    Also, for those wondering why my name is "Grand Leader Quest" - it is because Dictator Quest is one of many "grand leader" quests I have in mind... when this one is done (if and when) - there are other settings I have yet to operate. Dictator is only one of many.

    At the end of the last thread, we wanted to ask Israel Military Industries if they would offer us a package deal for the STAR-21 Designated Marksman Rifle and the Negev Light Machine Gun.
    The advantage is that we then have one bullet for all of our forces, and makes interchangeability of parts easier.

    One thing I'd like to know is how the PMC is viewed by our citizens. Usually, mercenaries are not looked kindly upon by a populace.
    But we've made sure that the BlackJets attack only the proper targets, have them provide fire support to citizens fighting off rebels and criminals, and in general they seem to have been doing a good job.

    Also, I'd like to know how the citizens view the military. Are they afraid of the Army and see them as necessary thugs, or are they proud of our professional forces and how they compare to those of our neighbors?

    Finally, how is our Everyone Works, Everyone Eats, Deal With It Policy viewed by our citizens and by the world?

    Very cool to see this continued! Got bummed when I refreshed the Psrt 4 and the thread was 404'd after I got back from working a double-shift.

    Nice to see the military is growing to defend the nation and a navy seems to be the next long-term project; arms selections seem to be short-term.

    Question: I know we have oil fields and gold mines, but do we have a large fishery or anything off the coast? I saw our 'navy' is comprised of smaller craft that double as fishing vessel. Is the fishing on a subsistence level or could we have a sustainable commercial operation?
    >> Anonymous 01/30/12(Mon)13:08 No.17737040
    Our next industrial/economic project should sustainable fishing and growth.

    We will need to increase our Coast Guard to a Navy at that point, I think.

    We haven't tapped the in-land oil fields yet, but our rail system isn't ready so i don't think it matters.

    -Liberia simply says it was doing what it had to and that the people of Ivory Coast chose a new, solid leadership... AU buys it for now. UN is unsure. US supports Liberia in it's actions.

    -In regards to your intrusion incident with "US forces" - the United States reminds you that plenty of people operate the C-130 and plenty of people can acquire it's arms from any common source and reminds you not to point fingers so swiftly. US assures you it has no intent to interfere with your nation.

    -US Embassy refused.

    -Israel at this time is not willing to sell any more weapons, but will consider it in the near future.

    -Ghana is stable at this time. Your support is welcomed.

    -National Competition between your people and Brazil in Football (Soccer) will be in May. It will be hosted in Brazil. Your team will be flying to Brazil to play. Perhaps we should send our Vuvuzela Bands with them?

    -Military Situation in the World: European Union lifts sanctions on Iran in the need for more oil. Iran has refused to sell anyways. EU currently pointing fingers as NATO and UN for botching the entire Iran incident and hurting furthermore the European economy and industry.

    Israel: We thank them for their consideration and again express our interest in working with them again. We bide our time but don't look to anyone else. We don't want to look like every other African tin-pot dictator that runs from country to country trying to buy guns.

    Continue to build and strengthen ties.

    Increase border patrols, look to Brazil in purchasing Super Tucano's to help border patrols.

    Russia's not going to be happy with us selling to the EU.
    I suppose we could tell them:
    "Tovarisch, please, I am an economist. We must make as much money as we can while the Strait of Hormuz is blocked. And that means selling to the EU.
    "Selling to them shows that they must consider alternative sources of oil. Such as you and I, tovarisch. They cannot depend on the Middle East forever.
    "And finally, we cannot allow the EU to suffer more economic failures, for our own sake. We live in a global economy, tovarisch. The economic failures of our opponents can cascade into crippling our own."

    -Ghana has declared the cases resolved. Lock down in place until confirmed by UN. Ghana thanks us for our help.

    -Liberia(IC) border alert level has been increased, just in case. Do you wish to send extra troops there as well?

    -Education! Our new team of engineers graduated training, and wish to create a new, "all green" city somewhere, perhaps near the Liberian(IC) border, suggests a tactical adviser. A base near it would increase security - and an all green planet. India, EU, and Russia both are offering to sell these engineers the tools they need.

    -Vuvuzelas - investigation shows Brazil will NOT like them...

    ++Financial break down
    On a 100 scale.
    -25 of our national budget is going to military up-keep and new purchases. Once the impact of new purchases settle, up-keep costs will drop to 5 of our national budget. Further expenditures will raise it to 30-35+

    -Infrastructure improvements, expansion, upkeep, 40 of our current financial proceeds are going into the training/building/operation of new roads/railway systems, and purchase of power systems.

    -15 of our national finances are going to farm/health/education systems along with related civil projects.

    -5 of our national finances is being spent on misc.

    -15 of our national finances is being put into the vault to grow our reserves or unused.

    General economic outlook is: Average.
    -If we continue purchasing new and large expenses such as reactors, we may need to cut back on other things. Perhaps we should open up the 2nd mine, or increase operations?

    Seconded and supported. That being said, I do think we should increase patrols along the border as 'security measures' for the building of the new city. Maybe clear a patch for the Hind to use as a helipad for QRF and maybe widen a pathway leading into the city for use as a STOL field.

    speaking of Hinds, I strongly suggest we become a more helicopter-centric air force. we use the MiG's for air interception, keeping our skies clear, the Hind's for close air support, blasting the shit out of the enemy's ground forces before moving in, and the SU's can supplement the MiG's or the Hind's.

    I said it last threat/two threads ago. We keep trying to make our armies as western as possible with helicopter fleets and a large air force.

    Now, those things are necessary, don't get me wrong. However, if we ever do get into a tussle with a western power they will show us exactly how they do it. Hell, if we even get into a battle with US backed Liberia we would be screwed pretty hard.

    We need to develop new strategies that aren't as reliant on a dominant air force or helicopter fleet. If we try to into war the way the western powers do, all we are going to get is screwed hard when they come into town.

    The only effective fighting tactics against a modern military force are those practiced by the insurgents in Afghanistan and Chechyna.

    Against all of our neighbors that don't have modern armies, ours is the most modern and we can use our vehicles to good use.

    The problem isn't developing tactics that would work. The problem is that the tactics that DO work involve dragging our civilians into the conflict and suffering massive damage to our infrastructure.
    >> Anonymous 01/30/12(Mon)16:10 No.17738628

    Why does it have to be our own civilians and infrastructure? We could have a modern military that can defend our cities and whatnot, and also have an insurgent force designed to infiltrate and destroy neighboring enemy cities.

    To take Liberia as an example, should we ever go to war with them.

    We design a military force that nestles itself inside of enemy cities with a large population. Maybe 500-1000 in each major city, as our army is small. This force is tailor made for that particular city, scoping out likely ambush spots and defensive positions long before hostilities start. Then, once hostilities are engaged with Liberia these groups are activated and designed to hold certain areas of the city and raid into other areas of the city. The enemy army, in this case Liberia, would be forced to battle in its own streets to get rid of the enemy forces, and most likely would not use an air campaign because the civillian targets would be too high (ditto for artillery strikes).

    We could turn their own cities into battlegrounds, and occupy their armies in such a way that they would possibly never reach our cities.

    There are problems with this, as you need a absolutely fantastic intelligence system. But it is a thought that can negate an enemies use of airpower on our forces.

    -Brazil has agreed to sell you new-ish Super Tucano's at a factory cost in exchange for 30% discounts in buying your oil. As, if you recall, you had jacked prices up (but reasonably lower than other nations) to sell world wide.

    - World "peace and green" Movements support the idea of a new, lean, green Africa. Several organizations in the US and EU applaud the efforts and wish to help make this a world class, model city. A company France, Leon Construction Concepts, wishes to donate a method for creating quick concrete dome constructions. (Real too! If I recall, it is a large, inflated balloon with interlaced / locking substructure of iron beams, while it is inflated they pour concrete over it. Easy, quick dome. Super strong and cheap.)

    Requesting update on the status of our intelligence agency.

    How is the current judiciary arm of the government? Due to the previous corruption case, it is about time we setup a anti-corrupt taskforce/agency to police our services arms.

    Improvements to our Firefighting brigade and Police force should be looked into:

    -What equipment do they currently have?
    -What system for monitoring and responding to fires?
    -Standard of training?

    We'll need to look into Purchasing better equipment, especially for FF Brigades outside the capital. If we're selling oil to the EU, we can ask tack on a request for old equipment and an exchange program to send some of our more experienced members for co-training and pick up experience.

    Police Force:
    -Equipment being used and their vehicles?
    -Do we have a Rapid Response Force (SWAT/STAR Teams)?
    -Level of corruption in the force. This is a major point. Very efficient militaries are common but the police force is very usually corrupt due to their contact with the civilian populace, unlike the military which is isolated.

    Like the FF Brigades, overseas training of senior members to build an instructional corp will help their development very much.

    If it has not already been setup, we need the setting up of a Police Academy but preferable a Civil-Service Academy. Joint, so as to allow members from the differing branches to make contacts with each other. This will enhance crisis management and allow us to concentrate resources.

    How do you expect to get that many people, that many sleeper agents into a target nation like that? How will you supply them with weapons and ammunition, and secure our communications?

    While such a strategy might allow for short-term gains, our soldiers would ultimately be cut off and eliminated, seeing as they're in a hostile city with no support. It'll be just like the Tet Offensive all over again, except that we won't have the intended social effect of making a far-away populace reject an unpopular war.

    And while all of this is going on, Liberia would be able to send troops across the border and the soldiers we DO have would be insufficient to put up a defense.

    In short, this strategy would only result in our soldiers being cut off and killed, and our nation being given a bad reputation for starting battles in highly populated areas. And that's even assuming that the movement of such large numbers would go unnoticed, or could be coordinated.

    I am simply throwing around ideas. Everybody assumes that the way a modern battle or war should go like this:

    >air superiority
    >Air superiority takes out/significantly takes out large ground forces
    >Helicopter fleet brings in advance forces to hold territory while main army moves up
    >main army moves up

    Cycle, repeat ad infinitum.

    The only problem with this is that smaller forces less technologically designed get fucked hard, with barely a fighting chance. Whether we like it or not, we are the smaller forces and we need to drastically innovate the way we conduct a war to minimize the enemies advantages while maximizing our own. And we need to learn how to do it.

    I am all for modernizing and giving our army any advantages it can, but I think we are going the wrong way with the Air superiority concept/Helicopter fleet.

    That warfighting concept was created by groups and individuals who had no compulsion toward sacrificing their allies toward defeating their enemies. It worked because we didn't have a concept that a war could be fought that way with blatant disregard for civilian and infrastructure, with the only objective toward defeating the enemy.

    Modern warfare exists this way because it works better than what came before it. I am trying to find a better way to fight war that would supplant the modern doctrine.

    As for an example, in the Bosnian war the soldiers created tanks out of cardboard and old cars. US and NATO forces kept bombing these fake targets so much they were literally running out of bombs to drop. Delta force agents, when in the initial invasion of Afghanistan dropped special forces parachutes tied to large blocks of ice near cities. Enemy soldiers would find the parachutes and scour the hills looking for the fake soldiers, thinning them out while US armed forces closed in on the cities.

    We need to innovate how we conduct warfare, or else we will be the US forces while MacNamara was in charge.

    Asymmetric warfare:
    Zodiacs and other very light boats armed with rocket launchers, and small speed boats with torpedoes.
    Their small size and lack of lots of metal means small radar signatures and difficulty in targeting them with modern fire control systems.

    Air force:
    Keep SAM radar off until a visual confirmation of a target can be made. That will make it harder for attackers to respond to search radar.
    Use light signals to reduce radio traffic, making air fields harder to target.

    Bikes. Motorcycles and bicycles, to allow squads to move quickly without being detected as easily. As the MC'02 showed, a motorcycle messenger service, while slow, cannot be intercepted by enemy E-Warfare.

    Overall Strategy:
    Attack the enemy's supply lines with ambushes.
    Move artillery in complete radio silence and at night to positions and shell enemy positions.
    Attempt to engage the enemy at extreme close ranges, where they cannot use CAS for fear of hitting their own.
    We can use an opponent's reliance on sensors to trick them, such as using radio communications to simulate a forward base camp, and using it as bait for an ambush.
    We could also create human-sized heat signatures to fool IR sensors and satellite thermal imaging, using some coat hangers and heating elements from a hand iron, hooked up with some batteries. That would create false indications of troop concentrations.

    The only strategy is to deny the enemy a head-on engagement, and to stay moving to prevent the enemy from being able to mass armor and troops.
    After an attack have the squads disperse and head in all directions, only to come back together in a few day's time for another attack on enemy supply convoys.

We need them to supplement our Hind's trooplift capacity, and they can airlift light vehicles while carrying troops, including light SAM systems such as the Crotale. This would allow us to field near a full airborne company, with vehicles. If its too expensive at this time, hold it for later.

    Right now I feel we should rqmp up for some 'final' civilian infrastructural improvements - finishing the reactors, setting up the new city, getting an airport in the capital if we don't have one and then improving irrigation further if we can.

    Towards the end of that, I'd say start increasing building up our gold mibes and oilrigs'll be vital, using any savings to really push it, while we move some of the excess forces from the green city to them for a while, and start a modest navy to protect our waters.

    After that, depending on our financial situation, I'd suggest expanding healthcare and education to improve the standard of living, along with nationwl libraries so people have somewhere to go without the internet.

    Since we don't have a large pre-existing investment in roads and road infrastructure, I'd like to suggest that we adopt rail transport as our primary transport infrastructure. Heavy rail for freight and inter-city, lift rail/trams within the cities. In sufficient size to replace cars as a primary mode of transport.

    Our Fulcrums should be able to carry AShMs, but if they can't, we should look into Su-30s for their AShM capability. It would also enchance our SEAD and AtA capability, and generally make us a nightmare for anyone trying to take us in the air, at least in this part of the world. India has the MKI, and it can carry everything we need for naval combat.

    But we really do need a navy. I'd suggest 3 frigates, minimum, along with some cutters. 2 ASh/AA, 1 ASuW. The problem is cost. Ships are NOT cheap to purchase, even second hand, much less crews, maintenance, ammunition, and parts. We'd also need to construct a port and drydock.

    At the least, we should ensure our Fulcrums have adequate AShMs and the training to properly fight a modern naval vessel.

    Fulcrums were also carrier aircraft.

    They are also faster and smaller than a frogfoot, allowing them better chances of kinematically dodging SAMs from any vessel firing on them. I'm just not sure if they can carry AShMs in any useful quantity.

    For proper AShM duty with an aircraft, we'd need the Su-30 MKI, since Fullbacks are probably WAY out of price range right now and IIRC Fencers don't carry AShMs.


    You'll note I said 3 frigates AND cutters. The Frigates are there for force projection against our neighbours if they decide to invade us/make us invade them. The cutters are for patrol. Cutter, however, can't do air defense or AShW or ASuW, which is why we'd need frigates as well as cutters.

    Patrol Boats, should be sufficient for now. Look at the Svetlyak-Class (Since we use mainly russian tech, more russian technology would make maintenance more streamline and easier to manage).

    Specifically the 10411 and 10412 export models: AShMs and MANPADs respectively.

    A few of each should be able to protect our coastal regions.

    Problem is, we really don't have the budget for those three frigates, nor the training or crew to man them. With out small coastline, we're better off leaving rejection to air assets and having light vesselslike gun cutters and gunboats for local defense.

    I know. Which is why we should just get a few cutters, MAYBE a pair of Missile Boats in case someone decides to come knocking with a surface vessel.

    We can also use them as a base to get trained operators of modern warships, and then use that for when we buy a true warship (I'm thinking an indian frigate. I want us to have maybe 6 major surface vessels with 1 refueler, probably 5 frigates and a DDG as a flag.)

    Our best bet right now for anti-naval warfare is getting 4 Su-30 MKIs to act as our heavy hitters, carrying either Kh-59(MK or ME) or Kh-35s. We can also use them to great effect in the air, since they can all carry IR AA-10s, allowing them to hit BVR with IR missiles, making them a ridiculous threat in air to air engagements, since they wouldn't need AWACS links to hit BVR without revealing their position. (IRST is GOD)

    They can also carry Novators, allowing them to potentially fuck up any AWACS we see.

    Also, if we have a high level of cultural tensions (IE: arabs vs. blacks, muslims vs. christians), maybe we'd want to set up some kind of representation for these groups, allowing them to discuss their problems in a public forum (in front of the parliament I assume we have).

    Finally, We should also fix up our public services; public transit, police force, firefighters. But the most important part of this, is to insure that corruption is stamped out wherever it rises. Greatly increase penalties for those guilty of corruption, and institute some sort of oversight system to regularly check all government agencies for graft.

    Actually been giving it some thought.

    Some sort of compulsory military service, since we're too small to support a full size professional army. Perhaps 2 years of service, with our recruits being drawn and sent to the fire fighting, police and military. Military mostly being the army since navy and air force require much greater training times.

    Once training is complete, they are reserves for a set number of years, probably 20 years with more for officers. Re-training being conducted once a year to freshen them up.

    This makes our home defence much stronger since we can potentially call upon a much larger armed force that one would normally expect.

    I was considering if we should also go Sweden style and allow the soldier to bring their arms home but that would cause too many problems and drive our cost waaaay up.

    We are starting to get into that position with our neighbours starting to look aggressive.

Its a good equaliser and boys from many social backgrounds will train together, helping social integration and a good sense of camaraderie.

    In a heavily rural country, it's not like there's a government office everyone can just stroll on into. Any type of infrastructure is heavily politicized. And there's the real possibility that if you arm the wrong people, the guns are just getting used for tribal warfare. So that leaves you arming only the most loyal tribes and facing resentment from everyone else.

    Ah i see. My idea was sending the recruits together to a camp for basic military training then having them form into units for the duration of their service, not actually just arming them on the spot. The servicemen will serve in mixed units across the country. This way if tribal boys from different tribes are interacting, there is a chance for understanding and will help to ease tensions between them. If it doesn't, it would still remain as the status quo.

    Fishbeds launch anti-radiation missiles as our strike element of frogfeet head in to flatten the area. Make sure we're on the air as this happens, if possible release delayed footage. Our Fulcrums will be performing SEAD, so arm them with Anti-radiation missiles and bombs to take out SAM sites and radars. Get our hinds moving with our SF to drop to take what's left of the site.

    >> Aviationfag 01/30/12(Mon)22:50 No.17743292

    The battle plan will be as follows: Our Mainstay will datalink with our aircraft, and look for launches and active enemy radars. Assuming that we aren't up against S-300 systems, the 200km buffer should be enough for the Mainstay to stay safe. We push in our Strike Element of 3 frogfeet NOE with our fishbeds and fulcrums a little higher, sniffing for enemy radar. Once they detect it, they'll fire HARMs at the site. We have enough airframes to get at least 30 HARMS in the air, so we'll launch 2 at each target. our Fulcrums will act as wild weasels, trying to draw SAM fire, since they have the best chance of dodging both with CM and kinematically. Once the frogfeet drop their ordnance, our helos head in and drop SF to capture the site, with the helos providing CAS.

    Make sure that our Frogfeet all have at least 2 AT missiles per airframe.

    We have no approach worth mentioning. A proper SEAD element with heavy ground attack will flatten the base and allow our forces time to sweep up. We aren't using our aircraft for anything other than a massive single strike. Our vulnerable craft are our hinds, since they'll have to loiter to provide CAS.

    The truck is probably a Patriot launcher or some other US/NATO SAM system. I doubt the rooskies would be dumb enough to send out an S-300 against an erstwhile ally. Although it might be a chinese HQ-15...

    8 Fishbeds(Mig-21s) Armed with Anti-radiation missiles and iron bombs

    8 Fishbeds armed fully for air-to-air to provide air watch.

    Our Mainstay(AWACS) takes off and heads at least 200km away before powering its radar, it will be the only radar functioning, searching for enemy radar and telling our pilots where to shoot by datalink.

    4 Fishbeds will cover it.

    On the approach, our aircraft will all be flying Nap-of-earth, or at least as close to it as they can, so their airframes get lost in the ground clutter and enemy radar can't spot them. As they'll be datalinked to our AWACS, they'll also have their radars off, meaning it'll take someone seeing them to detect them. Once we're near the enemy camp, we have our SEAD craft gain a little altitude to "sniff" for enemy radar (Basically waiting for someone to shoot at them). Once the enemy powers their air-defense radar, we dump 2-4 HARMs at it, and evade any incoming through kinematics (Basically turning hard enough that missile overshoots and can't correct before running out of fuel or it loses lock) and countermeasures.

    As our SEAD aircraft do this, our frogfeet will be flattening the enemy encampment with bombs and rockets, targeting any armor spotted with ATGMs. once the main camp is down and the SEAD is progressing, our Hinds will come in low and fsat, deploy our troops, and then dust off to provide CAS. Our infantry and mechanised forces will be moving fast for the enemies most likely lines of retreat to cut them off.

    We've hit auto-sage. Making new thread.

    They won't be flying TRUE NOE, just low enough to get lost in ground clutter. They've had training with russian instructors and had at least 6 moths on in-seat experience. I also said they'll be armed with a mix or iron bombs and ARMs.

    Although upon reflection, arm the SEAD aircraft with some rocket pods, too. We need variety in our attack ability in this unknown situation.

    How good are our pilots at high-G dodging and using an AWACS as a CnC platform?

    You mean this one? I don't know any more it seems someone else in your thread has made a flag, I don't know.

    Anyway, I'm not from a parallel universe.

    And if anyone else feel like checking out the (now boring) thread of mine, feel free to do so. >>17740772

    Original flag >>17742876

    Your thread isn't boring. I also love that flag, it will be entered into voting.

    I change my vote from A to this flag!

    also the guy who painted our MiG is awesome, regardless of the flag.
