If we are to coornate our efforts we must establish a centralized command system to control this vast flow of naval power.

Admiral Hartlys fleet will depart for the strait on Friday.

We donít need a centralized command structure because our units will not be subordinate to a single commander. We do need a coordination center though, where we can communicate with each other. The ROD has a liaison team set up at the US Naval Forces Central Command (NAVCENT) headquarters in Bahrain. We recommend that Canada sent a liaison team to that location as well so that we can talk to each other and other key players in the region.

This is poor timing but the Yer bouti peace keeping mission between Mahishmati and the Eurasian Empire is coming to an end.
The draw down is almost complete and there was no plan (at the moment) by the UIN to replace them with any other Nation.
Yer Bouti has declined to extend their deployment.

And the centralized command structure should, no doubt, be on a New Canadian warship under what passes for New Canadian leadership.

The RCN will send their delegation to the NAVCENT in Bahrain to discuss on how to best coordinate the Naval power here in the Straits.

This morning, several ships left port in the ROD, heading to sea for humanitarian and training missions.

1st SHAM (Security and Humanitarian Assistance Mission) is heading south-east toward Central America. The RODS Ares (LHD-26) and the RODS Odysseus (LSD/H-22) will be visiting Mexico first, then on to Colombia where they built a strong relationship on their last cruise.


The first SHAM mission was deemed a huge success, so the Navy is currently converting another Whidbey Island class ship into a hospital vessel for 2nd SHAM, which should be ready to sail in a few weeks.

Also this morning, Amphibious Ready Group 21 departed from Naval Station Saint Catherine to conduct amphibious training in the Pacific. ARG-21 consists of the RODS Ajax (LSD-21), the RODS Patroclus (LST-24) and the destroyer RODS Trebuchet (DDG-105). Aboard the amphibious ships are an ARG headquarters, 2 Marine infantry companies, a platoon of AAV-7 Amtracks, a battery of M198 howitzers, and a platoon of M1A1 tanks.

As always, ROD Navy groups may or may not include submarines.

The ROD 10th Artillery Battalion, part of the 7th Armored Brigade stationed in Schweinfurt, Germany, is conducting live fire training at Grafenwoehr Training Area. Pictured here is 2nd Platoon / B Battery receiving a hip shoot. The guns are stopped in march order to fire the emergency mission.

Welcome to Bahrain. It's pretty quiet at the moment. US and British ships are patrolling in the area. ROD Carrier Battle Group 8 is east of the Strait of Hormuz. A destroyer and a fast support ship are in port in Yemen. ROD battleship and SSGN are in the northern Peraian Gulf.

Thank you ROD, As you know Admrial Hartly's fleet has left Esquimult just days ago bound for the straits with a large force of ships and Naval aircraft, this will hopefully discourage any Eurasian and Iranian forces from attacking the area.

The Army recently announced that its reorganization effort, part of the Defense Vision 2020 initiative, was complete. The Armyís troops are now organized into 50 battalions, organized into 10 brigades (plus a few independent battalions). Total number of Army personnel is just about 40,000. The ROD website has been updated (except for some pics for the 11th Brigade pages). Next up is the reorganization of the ROD Navy.

The announcement was made at the Combat Maneuver Training Center at Armadillo Barracks where troops from the ROD 1st Armored Brigade were training with our allies from the Kingdom of Dunderland. Tank and infantry companies from Dunderlandís Princess Aurora Regiment arrived several days ago. They also brought an anti-tank platoon from Rapunzelís Raiders.

Pictured here are ROD and Dunderland tanks advancing against an OPFOR position.

The RCN fleet has made a stop at the port of Sidney Australia to restock on fuel for the oilers and our warships before we reach the Straits of Hormuz.

The Battle Plan for the RCN is to have the 2 Battleships and the Aircraft Carriers will lay anchor at the mouth of the straits to deter any Iranian or Eurasian attack, while the other ships will patrol the Straits along with the other navy ships currently present.

OH, SHET!! Great place to sit the carrier. Battleships maybe for a short period of time.

Awe man, have a great show of force. Park your entire Navy in the Straight of Hormuz. That will darn well intimidate the Iranians for sure.... TRUST ME. What could go wrong?

Sorry P.G., I took your line.

Yeah I would think twice about parking any ship right there. The Eurasian Empire isn't going to be a problem for anyone at the moment. They only have a few subs in the Persian Gulf and they are deep in the northern end.
