German News and Events, 1948

That's a good epic score, too. I was actually following up Walter's reference to the opening quote and themesong to Conan the Barbarian... ;)

Noticias Argentinas 1948

As with the previous earthquake, the French and Chilean governments will offer their assistance. The Chileans will offer to send immediately some Army field hospital units, and some transport companies with trucks (Unimogs) and aircraft (large and small). If any assistance is required for search and rescue, other assistance can be sent as well...

Majority Denied - But a New Coalition Rises Wednesday, June 2, 1948 - The Alliance Républicaine failed to pick up a majority of Parliamentary seats in Sunday's election, gaining only two votes, both in Bretagne. However, the center-left Front Républicaine suffered significant losses in some of its traditional strongholds, and the Parti socialiste français also lost two seats. Surprisingly, the true beneficiary of the election turned out to be the Union pour la Démocratie Française (Union for Fre...

British Empire News 1948

Quoted from "Hood" 16 August The Greek Navy has placed an order for 65 BCAC (Westland) Wyvern Mk.52 fighter-bombers to partially re-equip their carrier-based fighter force. Desiring a modern aircraft but not yet fully wiling to embrace turbojet technology on their small carrier flight decks, the Greeks have ordered a version of the Royal Navy’s FSN.Mk.II powered by a 4,030ehp rated Rolls-Royce RB.39 Clyde I turboprop. The Greek Wyverns will lack the ability to carry a torpedo but will retain fu...

Japan News 1948

Quoted from "Rooijen10" Earthquake deaths are to be expected with big earthquakes and can happen in many regions of the world. Looking at wiki, a bigger one may probably occur later in the year (though that depends on the player controlling the nation in question). You refer to the Ashgabat Earthquake in October, I presume? Or another one?

French News, 1948

Quoted from "BruceDuncan" Oh my. Someone has stirred the pot in Damascus. This can't end well. 8) The result of long-standing trends, ultimately. During the late 1930s, Syria accepted the treaty as they were concerned about the events occurring with perceived Persian and Bharati aggression. These days, those threats have settled down and been forgotten. Stepping out of the defense treaty with France gives Damascus a bit more flexibility in responding to the circumstances that face them. :evil:

Syria Backs Out of Defense Treaty with France Tuesday, May 18, 1948 - Syrian President and Prime Minister Khalid al-Hafiz announced this morning that the Republic of Syria intends to pursue its own interests outside of the twelve-year-old treaty of mutual defense, part of the network of agreements which entered into effect with Syria's independence. To the alarm of leaders within neighboring French Lebanon, the treaty includes an agreement on the borders between Syria and Lebanon, which remains ...

Talons 1948?

Quoted from "thesmilingassassin" They also clearly have American markings.... :P Obviously an attempt to obfuscate their true origins!

A Spectre Rising

Berlin, Englische Kirche zu St. Georg, Saturday, 14 August 1948 Mathis showed up at the rendezvous a half-hour early, curious to scope out the ground before meeting his mysterious contact, eventually hovering across the street at the building of the 'Anglican Hebrew Christian Testimony to Israel'. He'd toyed with the idea of requesting assistance or backup from either another agent of the Deuxième Bureau - or possibly a German policeman - but Mathis was unable to roust any of the former on such ...

Quoted from "Hood" As Bruce says though, at this late stage in the proceedings is it worth changing it? I think it's probably not worth it at this point...

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...
