Will discuss the fate of Cannabis legalization in the New Canada on a later date.

In the mean time the Battleship HMCS Grande Prairie (BB-110) has left the ROD and is heading back to Vancouver to began her refit. considering the shocking news of the Evil Empires fleet of Aircraft carriers operating in the Pacific, it will pose a threat to our waters will need all the ships we can muster.

The ROD lost track of the Imperial carriers in the Black Sea for a time. Unfortunately, we don't have much of a presence in that region.We were able to re-establish contact this morning however as they transited the Bosporus. They are currently heading south-east through the Mediterranean toward the Suez ** CENSORED **. We will attempt to post photos from our surveillance aircraft on the ROD website later tonight.

The Bancroft had been trailing the HMCS Grande Prairie for several days, decided to surface two nautical miles to the east of the Grande Prairie. Fired signal gun and salute to this old battle wagon. Then the Bancroft submerged again, running silent and then floating to avoid any tactical pursuit.

The Canadian military has seen the pictures from the ROD site, the RCN is working quickly to reactivate at least one Aircraft Carrier.

The Commonwealth has been following the fleet from land observation as they did transit the Bosporus Straight. Armeniadom (on the northwest area of the straight), formerly part of Turkey. Report the exit of several ships including 2 carriers and 8 other ships including oilers.
. The Imperial ship head west past Crete. Flights of Su-27/30 flew out towards Malta and returned. As a Type 23 frigate was pursuing the task force it was approached by a Udaloy destroyer that sailed parallel for several miles about 20-30 feet apart. As the fleet approached Malta and the conference of the Vatican, Sicily, Tripoli, and Malta, a Perry Class frigate headed east to meet the task force.
. A group of ships from Tripoli, Tunisia left with a DDH helo/harrier carrier and Tico cruisier and a Type 46 destroyer. Out of Americaus Navy Base, several other ships sortied. 2 RF-111 flew off and returned with great video. Some Mig-29 approached the planes, flying real close, acting in irrational behavior that is dangerous.

A separation distance of 20 to 30 feet would have sucked the two ships into each other, causing a collision and an international incident...

Look up "underway replenishment.

That is the witness standing on the deck, 18 year old just out of basic training and fireman school. That's what he said.

REALLY? Not a PAO? Shoddy SOP, Chrisdom. And was he the only one on the bridge? Where was the captain? Did he take no action to ensure the safety of his ship? Is thete no official statement on the matter? Lousy, biased reporting. Just saying what you want the way you want to say it to make someone else look bad. Guess your press is just part of your propaganda machine.

An Imperial destroyer bumped our frigate then about an hour later. 3 minutes later 4 Mig-29 screamed over the Type 23 frigate at Mach .9. The Capt. commands turn to port 30 degrees, head 252 at 26 knots. Search radar only, scan for any fire-control and/or targeting bands.
. Transmit information on the events to Med Fleet Command.

The CoC Frigate, Type 23 backed off, slowed speed to 8 knts, then 4 to create distance behind the Imperial destroyer. I was joined by the Perry Class Frigate as the Imperial task force was north of Malta.
. The Imperial TF then sailed around Malta outside the territorial waters and headed south-east. Several Mig-21 and Mib -23 flew out to meet them for a fly-by. The Mig-29, Su-25, Su-30 continued their operations and threatening fly-bys. But since the Commonwealth ships were at greater distance they were not as close or as threatening to the ships.
. That is until the RF-111 flew over again at 5000 ft, they were joined by Mig that approached them and came up on wings. One Su-30 activated the targeting and control radars selecting a lock. Fortunately, there was not a missile fired. The Commonwealth did respond sending up 23 Tornadoes which did keep a distance of over 2 miles.
. The ships out of port did sail behind the Imperial fleet and behind the two trailing frigates of the Commonwealth. Two of our subs were on station and the Imperial task force sailed over them and near another one about 8 NM out. Sonar was active by the task force, but no response was made by their battle group. No helos were launched to prosecute location, even though several were airborne.

As the Imperial task force was north of Egypt, the 22 able Tornadoes aircraft did a fly-by of the Imperial ships. As they circled around 8 bogies, Mig-29 came along the Tornadoes. One pilot of a Mig-29 bumped wings as the Tornadoes were slowing down the wings extended.
The Mig-29 wing fractured and the pilot did parachute into the sea about 6 nm behind he navy group. The Tornado wing broke off at the hinge as the wing was extending out for slow speed great control. Both chutes were seen to be open. The Imperial helicopter approached their down pilot who used orange smoke. The two from the Tornado used yellow smoke. The helicopters from the two frigates were airborne, taking about 4 and 8 minutes respectively, to attain position. Both were rescued, however, the navigator required surgery he was in critical condition.
. Protest announced, to be filed with the UIN against the Imperial Navy, and the Imperial Empire.

The Imperial carriers are passing through the Suez ** CENSORED ** tonight. They have a few surface escorts with them, and most likely several submarines as well. The ROD ships in the Indian Ocean have detected several attack submarines in the vicinity that we believe are Imperial subs that are scouting for the carriers. No hostile contact at sea thus far.

On land, the Empire seems to be posturing as well. Tank Regiment Diablo and Infantry Regiment Havoc (both of which have refit since the battles of Dog Run and Booger Mesa), have moved out of garrison bases and staged closer to the border with Mahishmati.

Currently, the ROD 7th Armored Brigade is in Mahishmati with a tank battalion (M60A3) and a mech battalion (M113A3). We are weighing our options, including deploying the 2nd Armored Brigade back to Mahishmati, but in the event of armed conflict with the Evil Empire, movement of armored forces by sea will be too dangerous as long as enemy aircraft carriers are operating in the area.

Imperial Army units along the border with Mahishmati have continued to increase their readiness level. The now-reconstituted and rebuilt Tank Regiment Diablo and Infantry Regiment Havoc have moved closer to the border and are actively patrolling in the sector. The number of hostile incursions into Mahishmati territory is also increasing. ROD SIGINT has intercepted traffic from a headquarters that is controlling both Diablo and Havoc, suggesting that there may be a divisional headquarters involved. Ancillary transmissions may be indicative of reconnaissance, artillery, engineer, and support units, all operating as part of the division. So far, no additional maneuver regiments have been detected and no aviation units appear to be in the area.

In response to the increased incursions, the ROD has once again started conducting armored patrols into the disputed zone between the Evil Empire and Mahishmati.

Pictured here are patrols from ROD’s 7th Armored Brigade. The tanks are from the 13th Tank Battalion “Grizzly” and the infantry are from the “Mech Dogs” of the 19th Infantry Battalion.
