    Here's a list of things that NEED TO GET DONE RIGHT NOW.

    While international attention and goodwill is still high: Talk to India and Russia about acquiring some more fast movers, and a fourth Frogfoot. (4 Su-24M2, or 4 Su-35/Su-30 MKI)

    Talk to whoever we can about buying ATGMs, grenade launchers, and SVDs, and PKMs. We also need to talk to Israel about supplying us with Negev LMGs.

    We should buy 2 companies worth of BTR 80s and 90s, 72/25 split.

    Talk to Russia and India about buying a company of T-90s. We can increase to 2 armored battalions (1 BMP company, 2 BTR companies, 1 T-90 company) after we get our second mine and inland oil exploited.

    We need more air defence for our troops, as well. We need Pantsir systems for company and battalion level defense, as well as SA-8 systems for battalion and area defense. See if Russia is willing to sell 2 batteries of S-300 system in light of the SCUD attack, as well as 3 batteries of dummies.

    Just reposting this here in the new Thread. Replies to Aviationfag and his awesome yet expensive want for Flankers, and Anon who was worried about a 1st world Nation such as USA, China, most of Europe, Brazil, etc attacking us with Force Projection powers.

    Fencer's fill the role cheaper, and we have the LICENSE to manufacture the damned parts for it! I was under the impression that our Fulcrum's and Frogfeet were being maintained by the Russkies at our airbase, with Zanzi assistance/learning. A small and highly efficent/well trained airforce is great (ala Royal Australian Air Force/Isreali Air Force style), but I still think we need more multi-role fighters, at least a Squadron of Fencer's. MiG-21's are ok for us now, but eventually they will need to be replaced. If we can wait a year, Russia might be willing to sell us Flankers and then we buy 2-3 squadrons worth and replace our old Fishbeds at the same time with a much better aircraft that can do just about everything.

    Also, do we really need the Frogfeet now? I'm sure the squadron of Super Tuccano's we have for training and CAS can take over there, especially if we end up with Fencers/Flankers for our fast moving Air To Ground.

    Its not a matter of Superpowers force projecting us, its a matter of the 3 nations around us attacking with more men and armour. We only have a single company of BMP-2's. They have a 70mm cannon, and there is only 20 of em. I worry about Liberia and their recent expansion into Ivory Coast. We *need* medium tanks (T55 minimum) to deal with enemy threats. Tanks are a great asset to have, infantry will refuse to assault them in the open, they boost friendly Morale, they have BIG GUNS, and they're fast and manouverable. It also frees up our airforce from tank hunting to overall close air support of the Army and Air Defence.

    that is a first world army bought in one go .

    No wahy we can sustain that and not go broke. rework this with t-75 , or no tanks at all.

    The BTRs are needed and the Frogfoot can wait. a cheap MiG 21 , with LanceR Modification to act as figther bombers will do just fine

    I'd consider just using infantry divisions armed with RPG-29s as a cheap tank killer. Also, antitank mines are another good deal.

    You do know we HAVE 20 fishbeds, right?

    They are NOT very good ground-attack aircraft.

    We just bought 10 Patrol Boats, those ain't cheap. We should be able to eat the cost of 2 companies of BTRs and 4 fast movers, either Fencers OR Flankers, with our economic state as is.

    I can get behind purchasing a flight of Fencers. Lets do that.


    The STs are good planes for counter insurgency work. As an patrol craft for the interior and over our forested regions, they'll work perfectly but if we throw them into a full blown war, their slow prop speeds will doom them and their pilots.

    Mil stuff mostly looks good, so


    We need Medals. ASAP.

    I'd say the units that participated in the fighting should given a Presidential Unit Citation.

    And Andingo Swa'sin for a Distinguished Flying Cross

    We can use this for PR work. Perhaps some media outlets would love to purchase an exclusive with the hero of the hour.
    >> Servant of the Emperor 01/31/12(Tue)17:45 No.17752752
    Oh, why dont we try some of our own weapons production?

    We do want to consider some Anti-tank protection, so why dont we, the Zanzi people, with various russian engineers assistance if they'll give it, Develop some anti-tank platforms of our own?

    If we're trying to be an indepent state, then lets work a bit on developing our own protection, for the test, fixed gun emplacements could be simple enough.

    >> Aviationfag 01/31/12(Tue)17:47 No.17752770

    I actually thought about this. All the forces who participated will get a ribbon for the battle.

    All the pilots will get a medal for their bravery in the face of danger, Swa'sin will get an additional, better medal, probably our highest award. The Frogfoot pilot who kept his plane together also gets a second medal, some form of mid-level one. The Helo squadron gets a citation for bravery, as does our SF, for the insertion. No sense going all willy-nilly with medal, that is the mark of a tin-pot. Any other meritous actions I didn't cover also get mid-level medals beyond what's given. Any wounded get our Purple Heart equivalent.

    I've never heard of any international law along those lines. The main problem that I see is the issues associated with creating a DMZ next to our neighbors. There are Iranian mines that can supposedly be disarmed electronically, but I'd keep good records just in case. Note that antitank mines take a lot of pressure to set off and should thus not kill as many civilians.
    The only thing I would make domestically would be a main battle rifle, and we already have a lot of those. A Kalashnikov rip-off would be good if we ever went with the militia idea.

    I can see some homegrown defence industry being sustainable.

    If it does produce totally new systems, these will have to be confined to infantry carried ones due to price consideration.

    Otherwise, this defence research company can work on modifications and upgrades that we require.

    For example: additional armour for our vehicles, overhauls for our planes and customisation of weapon systems.

    -Incident 2 results: Paperwork confirms that these are working with the other rebels, and much of the equipment came from Burkina, and in turn, from Libya at some point during the Libyan Revolution. Two survivors are in the hospital, under military guard. Interrogation is scheduled for as soon as they are healthy.

    -Military Hardware Needs are on hold at this time while repairs are done to our current equipment post battle. (Editor's Note: For you /k/ommandos lurking here. When you decide we need to order some X Y and Z, put it in a list with - or >, I am so-so knowledgeable in most gear, but I can't visually sort 20 items in a list.)

    -Swa'sin City placement is still under question, perhaps a suggestion?

    -KFC would like to open a store in your capital!

    -NeoTekz has found an application to the nanites. They are capable of using them to construct items smaller than a Book Box (roughly 14x14x14'') using the nanites to move material like a 3D printer. It can work off any CAD files. They can replicate themselves in this printer box.

    -Ghana Flu has begun spreading person to person in a small village. It is under maximum quarantine now.

    -Enemy Submarine Spotted! Another submarine spotted, in INTL waters on the surface. Identified as an American Submarine (20 internets to whomever recognizes that reference in title.)

    -Black Superman has become a craze. Growing number of people are beginning to believe he is a real super hero with super powers. The rest find him a funny thing. Some tourists from overseas have booked flights to our country to meet this super hero for "teh lulz" as they put it.

    Personally, I don't think we need mines. We have a decent enough airforce that anyone trying to push in armor is going to be absolutely SHITKICKED by our frogfeet. Those things flying tanks of doom. Assuming we didn't get shafted, each one can carry 11 ATGMs, meaning any armor push would be suicidal since we just demonstrated how clearly we can fuck over someone with a half-decent air watch(For Africa).

    I've just sorta picked up on this, but we're going the direct opposite of most African nations and forming a small yet effective Armed Forces. We've only something like 12,000 Men in the Army, no milita, although we are implementing Swiss/Isreali consripction across all branches including technical.

    So we want to hit hard and fast, with overwhelming force. There is a great way to do this. We make several Light Infantry Battalions for jungle warfare, ala the Australian Army (Highly trained and motivated). Then, we build an Armoured Cavalry Regiment, preferably two.

    An Armoured Cavalry Regiment has the advantages of being a fully self contained force able to smash through enemy armour, hold ground effectively and is highly mobile. To create an ACR, we will need a Tank Battalion (2-3 Companies of Tanks, total of around 32-48 tanks), a Mechanized Infantry Battalion (2-3 Companies of Infantry with BMP-2's), a Motorized Artillery Battery, (Self propelled Guns of some sort, 4-12 of them), and if we're feeling really spendy an Attack Helicopter Squadron (4-12 Attack Helicopters, our Hinds would fill this role very nicely, but some Eurocopter Tigers would be bloody brilliant!).

    It looks expensive, and it is, but we would be able to smash just about anything short of a Brigade sized Assault+ by a combined arms enemy. An ACR can stand up to and fight a US marine Ampibious Landing Group on near even terms with support from our Air Force.

    Okay, we should really concentrate on a strong CDC type organization. Also, Black Superman should be a medal for valor or something.
    How are our Special Operations forces? For the cost, they're some of the most cost effective things we can buy. Also, we should build an AR-18 factory to arm all of these conscripts.

    Have neotekz test out their functionality as a battlefield ammunition dispenser.

    Tourism money is always good and nothing to sneeze at.
    Perhaps clean the beaches, and have them compliant with the standards of good resorts, and secure some jungle areas- a good safari with the whole monkey buisnes might be a good idea if any rebel encounter can be keep a

    Or fake faux rebel encounters for the adrenaline junkies. No need to have tourist actually ransomed and killed.

    This is my revised order. This buffs both the Air Force and Army considerably, although we may be using our strategic reserves to buy all this hardware, we really need it.


    Air Force
    -12 Su-24M2 (Latest Variant Fencer, multirole Aircraft)
    -4 Su-25 (Frogfoot)
    -8-12 Mi-28 Havoc Attack Helicopters. If Russia won't sell Mi-28s, get another 8-12 Mi-24 Hinds.

    - 3 Company-level formations of BTRs (72/25 split of 80s and 90s)
    - 18 T-90 tanks, with full ERA, electronics, and ATGM capability. (16 tanks for the line, 2 trainers/spares)
    -If we can't get the T-90's, buy 18 German Leopard 2's or Leopard 1's. Failing that, 36 T-55's (32 for the line in 2 Tank Companies of 16 each, 4 Trainers/spares)
    -12 Russian 2S19 Msta-S 152mm Self Propelled Howitzer.
    - Grenade Launchers, Negev LMGS(Israel), PKM Machine guns, and Dragunov SVDs.

    -4 of EITHER Su-35, MiG-35, Su-30MKI(Or MK* equivalent)

    I think my helo plan is better. We have 4 havocs, which are good enough for what we fight, but it gives us 20 Hinds, 22 if we need to MOVE EVERY ZIG, and 6 Hips, allowing us to field a LOT more airborne infantry.

    I know advanced is much better, but we can maintain the Fencer's easier, we have that license. We're still a rather small time African Nation, not Glorious Mother Russia with massive funds. Fishbeds and Fulcrums are our close in dogfighters, Fencers stand back at range with BVR missiles in an AtA engagement. I also forgot about ordering the extra 4 Frogfeet to bring our count to 8 Frogfeet.

    If you want more Air Overwatch, I say we up our Fulcrum count to a full Squadron of 12 (4 current) rather than buying MiG-35 Super Fulcrums (Fulcrum-F or whatever they are). Even the Ruskies don't have that many MiG-35's at current.

    Swap out:
    -12 Su-24M2 Fencer's for
    >6 Su-24M2 Fencer's

    naval power
    >my face when

    If we go for naval power, I'd advise purchasing 2-3 Kilo class diesel submarines for coastal defense operations, along with several basic frigates. The big problem is finding the proper units to buy. From the Russian side I'd say we just need basic coastal boats along with our inhereted colonial fleet (assuming we made minor upgrades) should be good. The largest vessel we should be looking to get is something like a retired Alligator class since we are GLORIOUS COMRADES with the soviet union, along with Zubr class boats for escort.

    Also, we should make sure we are in good with the African Union. That way we can have more international prestige.

    And once these purchases go through, taking into consideration that they will be spread out so that our economy can handle the load, we won't need to.

    Besides, all of these purchases are important, because each piece of bought weaponry shifts our political alliances one way or another. The weapons deal for a grenade launcher could give us more ties to Russia, or open up new economic ties to South Korea.

Our police force is being trained up by...It escapes me if it's Russia or the UN, and I know our fire department has received quite a lot of funding lately. We don't have a special department dedicated to preventing terrorism though. Our military is basically solely devoted to protecting our country so they serve as border patrol and do various other jobs that would be delegated to the powers of a dedicated domestic security division. I would rate it probably a six or seven out of ten.

    -Brush Fire has gotten out of control and is burning into already desperate crops! Russia has sent a fire-fighting plane along with some AU support as well. They will arrive this month, but fires burn much faster than planes can traverse continents...

It disassembles it and re-assembles it into the matter you need within this 14'' cube. It will not operate outside it. Theoretically speaking, you could fill it with sand and it would produce a box of ammunition... the exact process is guarded by them. They assure us it is safe.

    -US response on the sub was that the crew needed fresh air, and reminds you international waters are, international.

    -TV Producers have picked up. One set even claims to have the "real" black superman. They are currently out shooting a pilot of Superman stopping the brush fires. Audiences eagerly await.

    -Russia has offered (again) to meet our further military needs in exchange for an open military alliance, and hidden research facility.

    -Rebels! A rebel has surrendered to our armed forces. He claims they are armed with a mix of old-regime weapons and new American equipment via Libya. He is offering up more information in exchange for a pardon, and a high end rent/tax/utilities free apartment in the capital.

    -Rebel info has been acquired, it seems that the CIA was at one time funding them until the C-130 incident. There were two separate groups, one was an elite brigade from the military (Incident 2), the other were disgruntled rebels who did not like who was put into power (1st fight in jungle region.) He claims Liberia is backing them now but the US has backed off entirely.

    -Liberia(IC) is having rebel issues, ZIA informs us....

    -Ghana Flu Incident has passed, says Ghana. WHO has closed the quarantine down in response to this, after verifying and distributing vaccinations to the populaces in need.

    -University of Port Liberty has been founded officially. 10,000+ students have joined, even though the facilities set up can only support about 4,000 students. Many classes are standing room only. The University has requested more funds to purchase new land and build a proper- larger- facility.

    The ammo box is a specific subset of the nanofax. We can make food dispensers, water dispensers, whatever is needed. I simply thought of the ammunition dispenser first because everyone was bitching about having to haul a whopping THREE AMMUNITION TYPES in our logistics train. That, and since we'll be fighting in the jungle, it'll allow dismounted infantry limited resupply.

    Also, I wouldn't be so sure about throwing away Russia's alliance offer. It will fix our army to a better standard and we will be a very unlikely target for anyone that doesn't want to take a fight with Russia. Remember, we're not in the Cold War anymore, the USA seems to be in a bit of trouble and the EU isn't completely united yet. China is expanding in east Africa, but mostly economically and binding their economy to them, something we don't want. The possibility of having a military alliance only (with trade relations as well) is about as a good deal we can get.

    -The NeoTekz Box: Our "findings" hit dead ends... It's dropped, dead end, doesn't work, just some Nigerian scam it turns out... We produce shit in secret and in small amounts so as to not drawn suspicion.

    -Black Superman: Do we know the identity of this guy or is he some random skinny running around in tights? If it has to go illegal and we off him, we create and serve for free a Black Superman ice cream flavor.

    -Armed Forces: I feel bad for starting the focus on armed forces when I brought up the STAR. I say we focus on what we can sustain and gets us best bang-for-our-buck, both fiscally and politically; we shouldn't be a puppet.

    -University: We have 10k ppl on a campus that can support 4k... What kind of screening process was there to get into the university? Entrance exams or putting your name on a list? For all we know, we could have 6k worth of turd factories and produce no positive results.

    I'm sceptical to Scotland-Zanzia-Russia ties. Sure, Scotland may not be UK's favorites, but I doubt they'll want to cut with Europe and get into bed with Russia. Either they'll join the EU or they'll be in some kind of totally-not-EU-we-swear relationship somilar to Norway. For that matter I think they'll be more keen to grow closer to Scandinavia than some African banana republic.

    Also, not to complain OP/GM, but some 80% of UK's oil fields are in the Scottish territorial or economic waters and go through Aberdeen for processing. While the companies operating there may not be scottish, I doubt they have the same generous terms that were in effect in Libya pre-gaddaffi. This would mean thet they would get tax revenues from it (and are able to nationalise) and buying their 'own' oil would probably be cheaper and easier than importing it from a west african no-body.
