Bering Strait Incident - Out of Character Discussions

Okay, update: As stated above, Parador and I had a misunderstanding about whether or not the Zhuhai was in Russian territorial waters at any time during the Bering Strait Incident. As currently written, a number of my posts indicate the ship is much closer to the shore, and within Russian territorial waters; all of Russia's later reactions were based on this point. However, Parador would like to ensure that Zhuhai stay completely out of Russian territorial waters. This, in turn, might change the...

Bering Strait Incident - In Character Discussions Only

The Russian Federation claims territorial waters of twelve nautical miles (22.2km) from the baseline. Several exceptions to this rule are: -- Russia claims the White Sea and the Shelikhov Gulf as internal territorial seas. -- Russia claims administrative rights in the Sea of Okhotsk, and it reserves the right to claim this as an internal sea if required by political necessity. -- The Caspian Sea is administered according to sectors by mutual agreement between the three coastal states. When the t...

Bering Strait Incident - Out of Character Discussions

I think I'm comfortable with what I have written as-is, without modifications. Russia's argument does not depend upon UNCLOS.

RE: Helicopter Trials

Quoted from "Hood" The Dutch Luchtmacht is seeking entrants for a competitive fly-off evaluation for two types of rotary-wing helicopters. The first is a small helicopter suitable for observation duties carrying a crew of at least two and possibly, but not necessarily, also having room for up to two passengers. The second type is a larger helicopter capable of carrying troops or cargo, at least six soldiers must be carried along with their equipment and personal weapons. Both types must be suit...

New ships for Atlantis 1946/47

Quoted from "BruceDuncan" The Halland carried a quad Bofors 375mm ASW mortar - a cloned version is used by the KM, and I believe that the Marine Nationale has a similar system planned or in service. I suppose you *could* mount them on the forecastle ahead of "A" mount but I'm not certain I'd want to be a member of that turret's gun crew - the back blast is considerable. Modern designs using remote-controlled mounts, such as Yubari, shown here, have fewer issues with the back-blast. Yes, the Fre...

Bering Strait Incident - In Character Discussions Only

Quoted Statement of Facts On January 14th, the Chinese government invited Ambassador Adamov of the Russian Federation to discuss a number of economic issues in a diplomatic venue. During these diplomatic discussions which took place shortly thereafter, the Chinese government requested, amongst other things, expanded rights to fly into Russian airports, the request to discuss the abolition of customs duties, a request for access to Russian jet engine technology, the license-manufacture of Russia...

Beijing Newspaper Q1/1948 - Chinese news and events - January / February / March

Quoted from "parador" China would prefer the South African Empire or Bharat to take the role as arbitrator, but we are sure that these two nations would by no means be accepted by France and Russia. OOC: actually, neither France nor Russia would have any reasons not to accept the SAE as a neutral arbitrator (although France feels the SAE is a little too 'bribable' to be entirely fair). They might have a few more reservations about India, since they're not a League member any longer, and the Tre...

Meanwhile, in Russia: 1948

Quoted from "Rooijen10" Japan notices that all three nations mentioned for the potential role as arbitrator in the matter are former members of the Eight-Nation Alliance and therefore cannot be trusted to be neutral in this matter even if almost 50 years have passed since the Boxer Rebellion. Japan feels that a League of Nations member with little issues or conflicts with China would be better qualified as arbitrator. Due to certain events known to all, Japan has no love for China, who time and...

French News, 1948

Headquarters of the Dieuxeme Bureau Monday, April 26, 1948 Claude Masson waited in the small anteroom, feeling a hint of nervousness as he waited for the interview. Agent Maury, sitting next to him, showed no sign of sharing his superior's jitters. Finally, after twenty minutes wait, the door opened and the Comte de Rochefort entered, with another man following behind him. "Masson," de Rochefort said brusquely. "You're back. This is Phillipe Bertrand, of the Italy Section." "Sir," Masson said, s...

Meanwhile, in Russia: 1948

Well, Russia really doesn't want to send waves of tanks heading for Beijing. All they want is for Dragon not to poke sleeping Bear. Bear not like being poked. It is still hibernation time. ...that said, if Bear keeps getting poked... Bear does have waves of tanks they could send for Beijing. Namely, the largest armoured force in the world, plus the largest air force in the world.

Additions to the Q1 news: Quoted Chinese Confront Russia in Bering Strait February - The Russian Federation government has announced that a military confrontation has occurred in the Bering Strait between Russian Federation naval and coastal defenses and a Chinese warship. A heavily-armed Chinese icebreaker, the Zhuhai, was sent by Beijing to reconnoiter the Arctic in preparation for further expeditions, including alleged commercial exploitation and an attempt to intrude upon the Northern Sea Ro...

Beijing Newspaper Q1/1948 - Chinese news and events - January / February / March

Adamov patiently waited for Kai-Shek to finish, politely nodding in a few places where he agreed. In response to the Prime Minister's final question, he nodded in the affirmative. "Yes, Prime Minister, that is correct; we shall not permit the passage of any Chinese warships through the Bering Strait." He waited a few moments, and then added cheekily, "Good day, Prime Minister. Shall I instruct my driver to take me to the airport?"

Dismantling infrastructure

Bruce is correct in remembering my requests to move some infrastructure. There were two occasions: - In Chile, there were a few slips placed in Mejillones, a town that had no shipbuilding industry and no protected harbor - just a beach that was only suited for small open fishing boats. I asked and received permission to move those slips down to Valdivia, where there are actual shipbuilding facilities in real life; but none had been placed there when the game started. - In France, a few drydocks ...

Dismantling infrastructure

Quoted from "BruceDuncan" Wes posed a question over in the Rules and Admin Folder on the subject. Alas, we non-admins cannot post replies over there. So I will put my two-cents here. My personal recollection is that this has happened only once before, where someone (Brock?) had asked the player-base regarding the relocation of infrastructure from a place that really was not a port (it dated far back into the past of WW) to one that was. IIRC, the infrastructure in question had never been used f...

Dismantling infrastructure

Merging the three different threads: Quoted from "Hood" For some reason I can reply to the original Dismantling infrastructure thread in the Rules section, perhaps only mods can post there? Anyhow, I've looked back and found a couple of threads where it was mentioned about dismantling spare infrastructure to sell for IP but nothing about dismantling it to move it. There was I think some discussion from years back when the sim was still new about moving factories but that was deemed too complicat...
