Weíre just taking the NCOs right now. We want seasoned troops that have a higher probability of passing the course and learning the core lessons (Recondo school has a 75% pass rate). Today they are drawing their equipment and weapons. Tomorrow the training cycle will start and it will last until late January. After Recondo school some of our SF guys can give your NCOs a short course on special operations, but it will be nowhere near the training of the full special operations qualification course which is about a year in length. We can spend a week or 2 going over team organization and duties and a general overview of special operations.

Your junior enlisted guys can attend our airborne school before they return to New Canada if you want.

Yes! We definitely want to keep sending guys to the Jungle Warfare School. It's great training - not just for the jungle experience but also for the leadership and general infantry training!

We already have your 10 NCOs starting the course. Lets just go with that for now.

we need to speed up the training process for the NCAF Spec ops units, so we can quickly deploy them to Aleppo as soon as possible.

Building a legitimate special operations force takes time. Our special forces qualification course takes a full year Ė your guys are going through a 2-month recondo school, followed by a very brief, very general overview of special operation. Right now they are still patrolling in the ROD mountains.

Just dropping some special forces into Aleppo isnít going to solve your problems. Your basic approach is flawed because it seems like youíre expecting the population to see you as a better alternative to Al Kabob. I donít see any reason why the citizens of Aleppo would think that at the moment.

It does look nice. Good think it isnít anywhere near the Commonwealth or we would be ready for counter-battery Fire, to smash them...... I just get concerned with those nice guns pointed at us.

The NCSF branch is asking for an update on the NCOs training with the ROD, how are they progressing?

The New Canadian NCOs are doing well. They are still in the woods doing squad and platoon patrols. 7 of the NCOs passed their first squad leader patrol. 2 of them passed their platoon leader patrol and 1 failed his first patrol, but he will have more patrols to come.

The Light cruiser HMCS Ontario is en route to await the arrival the ROD command ship in the north pacific escorted by 3 Flower class corvettes and one Trafalgar Attack Sub Sockeye. the Ontario is carrying delegates from the New Canadian Government, they hope that a representative of Karmanaskis will accept the offer to meet at the Command ship to bring the end to the tension.

Karma-Naskis thanks the ROD for the offer of mediation, we are looking for a peaceful outcome.
The Karma Government is meeting today and defensive measures are under way.

At this time we respectfully request that you ships remain beyond 200NM from the Island. This is a short term measure until positive situational awareness is complete.
