Commonwealth Military Command
The US government has approved the transfer of M2 Bradley Fighting Vehicles to the CoC. This has been approved because of the EE involvement in the Mediterranean Sea and Egypt. The M113-25 (EIFV) is not capable enough for large scale sustained operations.
A Major General who spoke on condition of anonymity said, "the Commonwealth had been on a shoe string budget for the fighting vehicles for the mechanized infantry."
. When asked about the latest version of the Bradely, the General replied, "we are getting the M2 Bradley, not the M2A1, M2A2 nor the M2A3. The base vehicle. Many will need to be worked on. The initial batch have been cared for, have been in pre-positioned stocks in Saudi Arabia, Germany, the US and a few other places including Americus Island in the Med. Training will begin immediately on simulators and vehicles. Mechanic training is taking place in Americus and Saudi Arabia at the US sites, being flown in. This is a great addition to the CoC Army, we are appreciative."

The Mediterranean zone of military operations:
The CoC is observing the naval forces of the Evil Empire (EE) by drones, UCAV-47B Reapers are being used. Over Egyptian territory, UCAV-47 was lost 3 hours ago, preliminary data review indicates shot down by SA-17 Grizzly, although not confirmed.
Surveillance is also being conducted over the ROD ground forces and naval forces. At this time, there is appears to be more risk from the Evil Empire. Considering the previous conflict with the EE the Commonwealth of Chrisdom is maintain vigilant monitoring of those military forces.
. The SSGN Clark is on patrol east of Malta, along with two other SSGNs, which are receiving data feed of the location and type of ships of the Evil Empire. Aircraft patrol 50 miles away from their fleet at altitude of 35,000 feet with air search radars active, The SSN Prince (Los Angeles class) is on patrol south of Crete. 5 other SSN are on patrol.
. As the EE shipsd move through the Bosphorus & Dardanelles Straights heading to the Mediterranean Sea most have collected magnetic trackers, they seem to be working.

Since loosing the UCAV, we have increased the distance some with all observation aircraft and drones. Nothing else has presented itself of concern to the Commonwealth.
. The first M2 Bradleys are being equipped and loaded out. Training is being conducted in Americus Island CoC Army base. Flights into Germany for training have taken place. Trains carrying M2 from storage facilities to training grounds and bases to conduct training as soldiers are flying in.
. Balzac Republic is recommending the CV9040 series for AIFV for the CoC. Bulgariadom, Romaniadom and Moldovadom have let us know that there are many BMP-1 and BMP-2 available along with BTR-60 vehicles available.

A chartered flight from Europe with business leaders, CEOs, Chamber of Commerce members coming to K-country to develop trade opportunities was re-routed. Flew over a naval base. A retired colonel took picks from tablet.

NanaIMO Airport had to be utilized, just a few miles from the southern border with New Canada on Vancouver Island. Security guards on the bus to the hotel did not allow pictures by anyone. AA guns and SAMs were scene on the way. A convoy with tanks And a few other vehicles under tarps were scene on 24 tank haulers. Behind that convoy were a dozen trucks and 6 or 7 solid color green buses with men in uniform, looked as if they were carrying their weapons.

Maybe a euro charter flight (with CofC friendlies) had to divert due to weather this morning. Had to use Nanaimo Airport near the Southern border with Nanoose Bay adjacent.

Either serious training or maneuvers to the south along the border. Col Johann spoke to a few on the flight just before and after landing, I did not know that these military assets were this far south.















Intel has it that the S-400 air defense system was to be purchased for delivery later this spring. Previously Komodo had not responded. Engineering work is ongoing for what looks like permanent sites around the city. Construction projects along the southern border are taking place. Work along the coast is also taking tons and ton of concrete and rebar, lift equipment. It is suspected electronic equipment is being installed based upon delivery trucks with tarps and electrical engineers on the scene.
.
Information, pictures were sent by email to the Chamber of the UK, Balzac Republic, Sweden, Camastandom, and to a few intel email addresses as BCC ( blind carbon copy). Trying to remain UN-detected with the information. A few with cell phone had their cell service interrupted during the transmission. A few got through as did the first few emails before the servers lock down their access. Hotel management could explain what happened, as all internet seemed to be working.

Nothing to see here, just a euro charter flight (with CofC friendlies) had to divert due to weather this morning. Had to use Nanaimo Airport near the Southern border.
Airport has SA-6 (KUB) and a liberal amount of ZU 23-2 around.
Bus to the hotel passing a convoy of SA-15 TOR etc.
Nearby Nanoose Bay is a known Submarine test location was visible on the approach.
Just a KDF Navy Orca 2 in for testing.

This is a scare for the people of the world. Perhaps revenge of the NC blockade upon the Karmanaskis or Kanada. Guess the 'War Drums are beating today" by K-country.
.
The CoC is appreciative that our member nations are a distance from K-country. As a release of intel, some military advisors from Karmanaskis have been helping Yer Bouti develop special weapons, special forces and artillery plotting devices with training.
The US CIA has revealed that some Karmanaskis agents moving into Canada in the last two weeks influencing rebellion.

Editorial on FOXY News, CNNN , etc... Should NC prepare? Nope, they are good. They are fighting in the Middle East. That is more important than the rest of Vancouver Island. If NC loses the rest of Vancouver Island, will the government collapse? Would the leadership of Karmanaskis or Kanada assume power to lead the country. Would NW Territory, Yukon decide to leave to become members of the Commonwealth of Chrisdom? Would they try to become members of the US even it Alaska next door?
.
It does not bode well for many members and pensioners in the government.
....
Reply to New Canada
Now New Canada is planning to have discussions and hope to set a plan that they will follow and honor. Canada goes to more locations to fight more people all over the world. Sure that they want to fight here to get the rest of Vancouver Island. The ego of the NC fearless leader is large, really large.
.
...."lose Canada again as it too k us a long time to bring this country back together again, I don’t want my efforts to be in vain."
.
He does not want his efforts to be in vain. It is 'his' country. Der Fuhrer, the great dictator.

Super Shelia here at Action News for WFOXY, reporting on the situation in Egypt. The military of ROD and New Canada took advantage of the help from Jordan to start the combat phase of the operation into the Sinai, having success. As columns and helicopter soldiers advanced toward the Suez Waterway, Imperial forces withdrew. On of the bridges over the Suez Waterway was intentionally destroyed which prevented the Imperials forces from a counter attack that could have encircled Canadian forces. ROD was more successful in crossing the Suez into Egypt. NC forces did cross utilizing helicopter assault units.
. There were violent clashes of armor and mechanized units hitting the opposing units. Helicopters and aircraft played a large role in the conflict. Both sides seem to be pushing at a slower pace to re-supply men and materiel, to have the logistics catch up.
. ROD military unit are reported to have violated the rules of warfare. It is being investigated.
. There was a report that NC snipers were wearing a red plume attached to their hat upon confirmation of success. That is not true. It is a mission, not a sporting event.
This is Shelia from WFOXY, Action News.

Shelia with Action News at WFOXY
Reports are coming in that Canada has one of the most experienced militaries thw world over. Estimated that 90% of their army has seen combat where the Karmanasis army has been in garrison and training. The Canadian military has the 8 largest military budget in the world over the last two years.
The review brought a surprise to evaluators for Jane's Military Publications how New Canada jumped in the standings from 3 years ago at #18 with over a three-fold increase.
. Sweet dreams from Shelia at Action News.
.
K-Country
A large Hyundai car carrying ship arrived in K-Country. It docked at the normal automobile inbound location for processing auto. After 24 hours it moved to the navy base to unload for the next 20 hours. A customs agent that does some free lance work report this. Under the cover of tarps and plastic, tanks and APCs were off loaded. There were also hundreds, thousand(s) boxes of parts, etc. A report from Korea when the ship left port in Seoul, SK indicated that enough armor for perhaps a battalion and K21 for another battalion. A separate ship came in with ammunition moving to the navy base cargo area for the cranes to do their job.
. Evaluation is that K-Contry is getting ready for armed conflict. Karmanaskis has observed how New Canada gets involved in armed conflict around the world. Each time with different units. The conclusion is that most othe soldiers from New Canada are combat experienced, so they must be highly capable to fight to overthrow a small country as Karmanaskis, which has not had any armed conflict. Inexperienced soldiers who have not had a shot fired in anger at them.

One promotion was man who is 'dirt poor' had to hunt for food. He just earned his Master's in EE and Cyber Security. On the day after he earned his Master's he was promoted to Captain and moved to the Cyber Security Office working in the Lab to detect threats and counter measures. He said that Canada's officer corps is made up of those that bought their commission. The lowest level of intelligence whose family can cover the Brigadier General rank for $1,000,000 fee despite being inept.

The Balzac Republic 747 ‘TANKER’ is landing at Vulture Field within minutes? Just point us so the parking spot. We will cut engines, using power from generators about 200 yards away. The TAPS will be installed. Ready to co with pitcher.
Support C-17 coming in right behind it with tables, chairs, tents, fans, bars, cups embossed with “Balzac Drinking Rodeo”. Ground crews are very welcome. Some of our Balzac Drinking Rodeo ‘ground crew’ double as MPs should that need arise. We always know ROD will have things in order.
A new line of Non-alcoholic beer is available this Fighter Rodeo.
Customers is welcome to inspect. They are welcome to a beer.
Expect DC-10 TANKER in a few days.
.
The Balzac fighter, attack groups along with support are coming just ahead of the TANKER.
The CoC and Monacodom air wings coming in 30 minutes behind the TANKER.

Camastan is a bit surprised, but pleased. CHIdom team is delighted.
We are really surprised that Canada did not finish in the 100th to 118th place for all their pilots. The flight leader was shocked to have someone finish in the “show” position.

Tanker 747 is using new fuel hoses to load beer into A dozen kegs per flavor or type of beer for the social are being moved.
Canvas banner Balzac Beer Trucks.
Come get a beer...now!!

Moroccodom is sending sheep and goats along with Desert Boars to the Redeo for Bar-B-Q.
.
In the straights between the Black Sea and the Mediterranean Sea, Armeniadom Navy is inspecting ships from the EE. A few small discrepancies have been noted. Slows the transit time by a day usually, sometimes 2 days. This is beginning to annoy the EE, especially the military transports, cargo and fuel ships.

Turmoil in Yer Bouti (not a digestive issue) has gotten worse over the last month with the Corvi19. Running in YB City.
Prince Lear, whose father was King of the country. has returned to the area being just north in West Sahara. Over a 1000 have joined Prince Lear to form a force to retake Yer Bouti. People south of Yer Bouti in Mauritania are announcing their support of Prince Lear to assume the leadership of Yer Bouti.
. Moroccodom is allowing the Prince and his allies to stay in West Sahara. With the 200 M1A1 received from the US almost 2 years ago, they are currently not available for use by this force. Border security around Yer Bouti has been increased. People are vetted before being released. Medical evaluation take place for each person wishing to leave Yer Bouti.
