  1. Continue the chaos.:)
  2. To Chile:
    We apologize, but the current situation in the North Atlantic requires the use of our Escort carriers in conjunction with Great Britain. No further ships are currently for sale.

    In addition, our most modern torpedo and dive bombers are not for sale, as we are currently equipping our own armed forces at this time.

    In regards to the F6U, we do not know what craft you speak of, as we have no aircraft with such a designation.
  3. US ORDER OF BATTLE; November, Week 1, 1943

    Nation: United States
    Population: ~200 million

    Resources: You name it, they've probably got it.

    I'm doing away with the Ads/Disads for the USA because I've made things way to damned dynamic. In any case, I'll be getting bitched at in 6 months (or less) gametime because I'll be out of Disads and have a LOT of Ads. I'm just going to play the USA realisticly.

    The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics continues its previous course. We remain neutral in the current conflict. However, we are concerned as to the lack of respect the nation of Luxemborg has recieved in current events.
    To the United States:Apparently, the lines between Moscow and our Embassey are shot. Have you considered our proposed purchase yet?

  8. To the USSR:
    We are willing to sell the requested F4F Wildcats. (OOC: Slacker, are your squadorns 12 or 24 fighters? need to know) We are willing to clear Gumman Aircraft Corperation to sell a license to produce your own F4Fs at your discresion.

    To Great Britain *SECRET*:
    We will help to better your nation's industry where we can. We will be sending a team of industrial experts to study your current industrial layout and practices to find places where production may be streamlined. In addition, we are willing to sell you equipment to both modernize your current industry and build new industrial power.

    Empire of Japan OOB November 1943

    Nation: Empire of Japan
    Population: 220 mil?
    Government: Monarchy dominated by military
    Capital: Tokyo
    Currency: Yen
    Industry: Low, beginning to climb
    Economy: Flourishing
    Merchant Marine: 19.3 million tons

    Resources: Uhh, whatever is in the Home Islands, Formosa, and eastern China.

    National Advantages:
    1) Fanatical population, completely loyal to the Emperor. Even the Chinese, Koreans, and Formosans are pretty loyal to the Emperor, if not to Japan itself, because of successful propaganda placing the Emperor as the reason that the atrocities stopped and for booming prosperity. Increasing self-rule may serve to pacify local populations and guarantee loyalty.
    2) Well-trained Navy, one of the best in the world, including the first organizaed strike force of aircraft carriers.
    3) Well-trained air force.

    1) Still trying to build up an adequate armored force for the ground army. (improving)
    2) The Army is still a little restless.
    3) Lack of oil and other critical resources found in SE Asia. (improving through relations with Indonesia)
    4) Fledgling strategic bomber force, only one model of full strategic bomber.

    Although many native designs are still in wide use, new tank designs began construction in the last two years, replacing the old designs:
    Type 35 (based on German Panzer MkIIIh): 1,475 (25/month)
    Type 37 (based on German Panzer MKIVg): 1,050 (50/month)
    Type 40 (based on German Panzer MkIIIn): 600 (100/month)
    "Grand Dragon" (based on German Panthers): 1,150 (300/month)
    Kamikaze (based on German Tigers): 400 (150/month)
    Type 38H (based on German Panzerjäger Hornisse): 395 (50/month)
    Type 38M (based on German Panzerjäger Marder): 225 (25/month)

    Each design is now being mass-produced in Japanese factories, as well as factories in China and Korea.

    Home Army: 20 Divisions, 1.5 armored. (Note: Five Divisions are currently at Da Nang in Vietnam).
    Korea: 3 Korean Divisions, 3 Japanese Divisions.
    Northern China (remains of Manchukuo and areas around Peking): 12 Loyalist Chinese Divisions, 2 Armored. 1 Korean Division. 24 Japanese Divisions, 8 Armored.
    Central China (Shanghai-Wuhan): 10 Loyalist Chinese Divisions. 14 Japanese Divisions, 2 Armored.
    Southern China (Nanning-Changsha) and Army Force N: 15 Chinese Loyalist Divisions, 2 Armored. 10 Japanese Divisions, 3 Armored.
    Formosa: 2 Formosan Divisions. 2 Japanese Infantry Battalions.
    Vietnam: 4 Divisions, 1 Armored.
    Army Group I: 6 Divisions, 1 Armored.

    Total number of Divisions (not including auxiliaries, reserves, and training units):
    Japanese Army: 85 Divisions
    Loyalist Chinese Army: 44 Divisions
    Korean Army: 4 Divisions
    Formosan Defense Milita: 2 Divisions

    Air Force combat aircraft:

    Our squadrons use 12 fighters each, with two replacements. This totals to 140 fighters, total.
  12. November 7th, 1943

    Headlines Across the Globe:

    United States and Empire of Japan Declair Formal Alliance!!!

    Today, in a public ceremony, Premeir Isoroko Yamamoto and President Franklin D. Roosevelt, after two weeks of negotiations, signed the document which formally forges the Pacific Rim Alliance between the two Pacific powers. This alliance, however, is separate from the Axis Powers Alliance to which Japan is also a member, and does not bind the United States, or other future signatories, to that alliance.

    The stated purpose of this alliance was to forge a united front in the Pacific theater against outside aggression, protecting both each other, their holdings, and any of the new South Pacific nations which may wish to join, as well as assistance in development for said newly independent nations. Possible signatories include the Republic of Vietnam, People's Republic of Indonesia, Nationalist China, and the soon-to-be independent Philippine Republic.

    We will, as with any such development, keep you, the public, informed...
  13. To USSR:
    The 140 aircraft will be ready for shipment in two weeks. Please have payment ready by date of delivery. Also, please specify whether or not you would prefer using your own transports to ship the aircraft.
  14. Brazil

    To Chile-*Coded* Payment is very acceptable. First Squadron of Halcons will depart in 2 weeks. This is one of two gift squadrons. As to training, look forward to manuevers.

    To USA- Oil Contract Awarded. Will provide 10% of oil to USA.
    *Secret*- Will provide an additional 40% a month for rights to build LSTs, Ashlands, and DUKWs. Also, look forward to demonstration flights of XP-67. Is a very formitable aircraft. Javolina is progressing. Should be a fine aircraft.

  16. Re: Brazil

    To Brazil:
    We shall begin arrangements to prepare the derrecks immediately. We hope to have them in place and begin drilling in one month. In addition, US oil companies have begun the bidding process for their individual contracts.

    To Brazil (SECRET):
    Your deal is accepted. We shall send the plans and a team of engineers to assist in a few days.
  17. To USA-*Secret*- Good, will have 2 large slips cleared for Ashland Construction and will begin on lighter equipment as soon as first Frigates are ready for luanch.
    The Parliment has approved a recent plan to provide the US to build a base at the port of Florianopolis in exchange for the machinary and licences to build artillary pieces and F4F Wildcat fighters. Will provide labor to build facilities for the base if you decide to accept.
  18. The Luftwaffe Focke Wulf FW 195 transporter, escrted by a quartet of P-51C Mustangs, neared the Washington International Airport. Construction of the new longer runways, larger terminal, and hangars large enough to house heavy bombers; products of America's new infrastructural developement.

    As the German aircraft bearing Minister of Foreign Affairs von Ribbentrop landed, the four fighters broek off escort, returning to a nearby airbase.

    At the Airport, a limosine and Marine escort waited to escort the minister to the German Embasy...
  19. Slacker

    Slacker Horseman of Apathy

    To the United States: Our merchant marine has been progressing nicely, due in part to the relative peace the Pacific finds itself in. Given recent events in Europe and the North Atlantic, you will understand if we ship via the Pacific, as opposed to the Atlantic. We'll take the aircraft ourselves on the ships bringing gold and other mineral resources as payment. We hope to have the ruble stabilized soon, and we can begin trading in hard currency as opposed to mineral goods.
    Speaking of the Pacific, the USSR looks optimistically on events in the area. We applaud the United States and the Empire of Japan in the efforts to promote world peace, and we look to perhaps enter into a similar state of cooperation in the Pacific in the future.

    OOC: Sorry I havent been here for long (internet problems)
    Now, back to the cruelties of war....again :rolleyes:

    Germany: When can we have that equipment! It is DESPERATELY Needed!
    Britain: And the planes. Need those Planes!
    Belgian Coast,
    0700 Hours.

    Stepping onto the con of the HMNLS SCHARNHORST, Rear Admiral Jankel DeVal grimaced. In his hand, he held the one decrypted message that would certainly let the enemy know of his position.
    If they recovered quickly enough.
    "Admiral has the con!" DeVal said. Everyone nodded, and his XO came towards him.
    "What is it, sir?" he said, noting the Admiral's grimace.
    "Nothing, Harrsolf. Nothing. Helm!" He said the last part to the helmsman, who prepared to carry out the Admiral's instructions, "Fire on the coordinates that have been pre-determined."
    "Yes, sir!"
    With that, three torpedoes left the Scharnhorst, and impacted on the docks of the bay of the city. Hearing the impacts, then seeing the tiny blips on his sonar go blank, he nodded to the gunners to open fire...

    In less than two hours, the Scharnhorst and its fleet had decimated the army, navy and airbases on the city of Oostende.

    New Caledonia,
    0450 Hours

    The first of the fleet coming back from the withdrawing Dutch troops from Indonesia arrived at New Caledonia. Along with it, the Carrier The Hague, full up with the Planes from the ex-Dutch East Indies, began to launch its plane for a bombing raid on the French positions around the island.
    The planes bombarded only the city of Noumea, and some Partisans were able to escape. They will be tracked down by the military.

  21. To Brazil *Secret*:
    Your offer is accepted on one condition: That the United States be allowed to purchase the land the base is directly built upon, as well as rights to a sea-lane leading from the base to international waters. For such an arrangement, the base would remain open for refueling and resupplying Brazilian ships.

    As for the machinery itself, we can sell you some of the equipment sets used for producing our own F4Fs to speed along your program.
