Well, you ain't got the Gator State, yet. My crews eagerly await your arrival. Tanks have been serviced, boresighted, and zeroed. PLEASE provide us the target-rich environment they richly deserve. We have plenty of ammo and can service all of you! Nuclear charges are prepared, as well. You will have no shields to return upon. Any remains will be mailed to your various misguided countries via intercontinental ballistic missile, this time WITH appropriate warheads. Your wives and children will be billed for policing them. The football team may be on its a**, but THE GATOR STATE is most assuredly NOT! ARMOR UP!

Nice paint jobs. We will be adding some charred stains if you decide to "visit.". Don't worry about passports...

The Commonwealth of Chrisdom through its Military Service & Surplus has purchased at the remaining A-6 and EA-6 Intruders from the USA. The US has retired all the EA-6 that were still flying. Structural and electronic upgrades are expected in the near future. Some had been delivered over a year ago and have entered the fleet.
. About 80 Ratel 105s have been deployed with in northern portion of Mali with low population density along with Boxer and Ratel 20/60/90s. The ISIS associated Al Kabob group has been making waves.... well, bombs really. Have killed many civilians, taken people as prisoners, expecting to be sold as slaves. In southern Mali, the National Guard and the CoC military is conducting more patrols having captured over 100 members of Al Kabob.
. France has been working in Mali and will continue to fight against these terrorist groups. Canada is welcome to send people to fight against Al Kabob.
. The Finance Minister announced that currency trading has resulted in trading profits of about $500 billion USD. Canadian dollar took a dip and then rebounded, the US has maintained a margin of stable prices that was matched against other currencies.

In a statement made by the Unified Canadian Government, "Our military is not combat ready yet as we are in the process of reactivating the Canadian army vehicles and weapons that where left sealed and abandoned in there armories for years".

That is NOT the sort of thing you should publish, given the predatory nature of CofC.

However the RCN and RCAF are back up to full combat readiness recently so we can perform some missions.

We are not alarmed by Canada, no worry mate. Talk is big. Even though the NDA were ready to come in to 'bomb' Al Kabob regardless of location if around Yer Bouti, probably dropping a bomb or two in CoC area, unintentionally of course. Not that all the Providences have unified, has less capability. Interesting to be sure.

One wonders why, with the Ratels mine resistant vehicles, and Oliphant, we don't already have Rooikat. Seems like the most interesting of South African combat vehicles.

As the Patrol & Control convoy was heading east on Hwy 17 in Togo with jeeps and Staghounds in the lead, ATGM missiles flew from a tree line. Of the 3 missiles fired, two hit. The first hit a jeep in the front wheel, then the jeep flew flipping several times rolling side over side inflicting 3 deaths. The Staghound was hit in the turret mantle from the side which severed the barrel from the turret, killing the two crew and igniting the 37mm ammo which in turn killed the driver and blew the turret off to the side about 8 feet.
. As the missile back blast occurred, other Staghounds fired their 37mm guns into the wood line and the jeeps with .50 call also provided fire support. Then the Rooikat with the 105mm fired HE into the wood line. 2 men died and 3 wounded. Then small arm fire opened from a different area of the wood line behind a wire fence with RPGs of which at 300-400 yards, hit the ground and were not effectively controlled. Ratel 20 deployed their men in the median to the north of the advance and on the south side in the ditch. The Ratel 20, 60 and 90s were firing at specific targets and also taking random shots along the wood line, a rock outcropping and a farm house and barn.
. Further back other Ratel IFVs advanced taking the drive to the barn and area in the fields east of where the fire was coming from to try to gain an advantage flanking move. The infantry deployed advancing in two columns 8 squads along the wood line with the other 7 squads along the irrigation ditch, which has vegetation. The crops in the field are about 2-3 feet tall currently, providing visual cover to some degree.
. As the squads advanced, small arms fire increased and then decreased several minutes later, although it seemed like an hour. Then the fire from the wood line ceased as there was yelling. Several soldiers running away from the CoC push were dropped. 6 were captured, 1 of which died later that evening from wounds and internal bleeding.
. Post engagement evaluation: "we need to find a better way to patrol and control, winning these engagements like this will become very costly against these rebels," said Col English-Johann the commanding officer of the brigade advancing upon the town of LeLi Up.
