Mauritania
The advance was significant in distance 120 miles down Highway 3, the north-south highway to an intersection. Set up a to camp for the night. This camp evolved into a base of operations, certainly from the perspective of logistics and medical support.
In total, about 150 Ratels, of which 80 are 20mm, the other 44 are 60mm and 90mm. In addition there are 18 Ratel 81mm mortars for fire support, 2 dozen Ratel ZTA-3 ATGM vehicles. About 4 dozen trucks are setting up a base camp. This entailed 3 convoys.
. Drones were sent out to a further distance 360 degrees than manned patrols in recon vehicles and Ratel 20s. Cobra attack helicopters flew in once the one of the highway sections had been secured. CH-47 came in with logistics support for the AH-1s and OH-6s. Expect G-6 artillery and G-5 towed guns tomorrow.
. Large recon drones, UCAV-47 flying over the eastern coastal area and the towns to determine location, and for a SWOT evaluation/review. It appears that groups have banded in the cities with protest gatherings of 10 - 15,000. Most are not armed. Rumors are that most of the people were forced to attended and/or bribed.

Guyana
The combined mechanized group, TF 108 is re-fitting to a small degree, mostly working on tires, belts and hoses, broken window, basically any damaged or missing equipment.
Those with nagging injuries are nursing those or seeking medical treatments. Wash and showers are a great relief.
.
Ft. Amador has been busy with getting ready for inspection by Lt. Gnl Clark. He came through the base inspecting the armored vehicles. Then in parade a company of Rooikat 105s were to lower their gun as a sign of respect for rank. when they did, 3 cans of beer came out. The crew was surprised of the parade, thus when the general showed up they put the beer cans in the barrel. Worked fine until the parade and the gunner remembered the beer. The general gave a command to the Sgt Major for the unit to halt, which it did. The General came down and grabbed the 3 beers giving one to the gunner and one to the driver. then general enjoyed the beer with those two men. The loader and commander missed out.

Senegal
The Royal Canadian Navy Squadron has arrived at the port of St Louis, the first Cargo ship is already preparing to dock and begins unloading its military cargo, over 10,000 Canadian Infantry, and 30 armored vehicles of various types from Leapord 2A4s to LAV III's and ADATS units along with towed M777 guns and M109 Howitzers, the goal is to quickly get to the Mauritania border in order to establish an outpost there in preparation for a full on invasion of that nation to quell the rebel uprising.

On the Nabob CF4F Wildcat Photo recon aircraft fitted with external fuel tanks took off from the Escort Carrier to begin surveying the area in Mauritania for suspected rebel hideouts.

Mauritania.
To the North of Mauritania is Yer Bouti. The Border is still open but with long line ups and extra security, no one is going South.
5 Km North of the border the 92nd Armoured Brigade is being deployed.



Their T72's and BMP-2's arrived today the remainder of the brigade is expected tomorrow.

Yer Bouti City.
Today's sailings. A Kilo Class heads into the Atlantic.



Followed by a Conqueror Class one hour later.



*Conqueror Class is a Yer Bouti designed class of semi-heavy diesel-electric submarines. Often confused with the Type 212 on which it was no doubt based but lacking an AIP system.

Americus Island
CinCAt
Message to attack sub off coast of Mauritania, be aware of two YB submarines that may be in the area. It may get dicey with the Canadian helping in St Louis, Senegal. We have no idea about the YB Sub leadership, they may be crazy mother f*^(@#s just like Sheke his arse. Recon is the mission. If you can get a sound recording of the the new submarine, the better, should be noisy as a junior high marching band and a bad. Unstable, crazy which means could be dangerous by accident.

The second cargo ship just pulled in to the port of St Louis to drop off the rest of the military cargo another 10,000 infantry plus Command Staff in a M557, along with the rest of the Armored units and any repair and recovery vehicles we brought. Though the whole Canadian armed forces units sent to Mauritania does not like the idea of working with the CofC but they will carry out the mission, though bitter animosity will arise from this.

It having slipped my mind that I don't like using sci-fi devices in imaginations, the Gator State has resumed its earthbound place. Construction equipment has been mobilized to improve defenses, given the inclinations of the U.I.N. and some of the surrounding imaginations. Force structure is being examined to ensure the State is able to defend itself and ensure its sovereignty and independence. Firing ranges are running day and night. New production lines are running at existing ammunition plants and 4 more plants are under construction. Sustainment stockpiles are being increased and prepositioned. When units are not at the ranges, they are going through tactical training. Nuclear mines at all possible landing sites are being refreshed. Obstacles are being replaced at borders and plans are being reviewed to ensure all obstacles are covered by fire. Located in the middle of the United States, attackers who launch missiles or o the aerial attacks on a he Gator State are reminded that a violation of U.S. airspace is likely to result in massive US retaliation.

CoC
It is good to see the Gator State building ammo production facilities. We look forward to pictures. The CoC is certainly not sending any recon craft over their territory.
Gosh, any nuclear mines that go off might be a catastrophe for GS and the US. We may need to send in som G-UAV to find a nuclear mine, Perhaps send in 10 or 20 tracked drones to find those mines. Not sure if that is a good idea, might eliminate the GS.
.
Mauritania
3 more convoys arrived at the new camp called Camp Highway, with wheel armor vehicles, jeeps, hummvs, and trucks at the intersection of Hwy 3 and the intersection with Hwy 14. Large perimeter is being finished, check points on the 4 highway entrance and exit and a Toll Booth.
4 miles north of Camp Highway is a another base being built up,It is just to the west of Hwy 3. it will serve as a fire base with a battery of towed G-5 155mm guns and 2 batteries of 120mm mortars landing pad.
2 miles further up Hwy 3 is a medical & support base. It has extensive medical facilities and a logistics support department being set up as well.
. On Hwy 14 heading west, large task force with 8 Rooikat 2-35, jeeps with Entac missiles, hummvs, 55 Ratels, 12 Ratel 81, 12 G-6, with some other support and recon elements moving toward the Capital, Nouakchott.

Brazil.
The super carrier HMCS Canada has been transferred to Mauritania to support the Canadian forces there, the carrier will leave once its fuel and ordnance has been replenished with thanks from the Brazilian Navy.

Yer Bouti.

Two more Conqueror Class submarines load up with stores in YB City.



Both are the newer improved B versions with longer range, new combat systems and the full acoustic tile coverings.
The fourth of the class is under construction.

We have a very effective anti-drone system.You will only lose your money. And your drone.
How do you think the U.S. will feel about CofC penetrating their airspace looong before a drone gets to GS? An act of war? The GS has an agreement with US allowing the engagement of approaching drones. As for your tracked drones, go ahead. Violate US territory. Gonna invade? How will you get here?

Your next problem? Just exactly where is the Gator State? Is it where Fatusa landed?

We would not have used nuclear mines had we not contingencies to protect our population.

We are not interested in trade, territorial acquisition, or global influence. Just leave us alone.

You guys are like cow patties in a minefield. They're everywhere, and a nuisance, but nothing serious. The Gator State is determined to maintain its sovereignty, freedom, and independence.

Brazil
the HMCS Canada has departed from Rio to Mauritania in order to bring its navy jet fighters to the scene, however the RCN's own administration still wants a fleet presence in Brazil so the Supercarrier will have to travel to the North African country alone thinking that her fighters will temporarily provide escort during the trip, she will link up with a RCN naval squadron already in Senegal to began ground attack operations.

"Cow paddies in a minefield", how interesting the observation from GS.
.
Mauritania
Moving further to the coast, 209 miles closer. Several cars heading east on the highway getting away from the trails and tribulation. Questioning some of those heading east on Hwy 14 said that rebels are shooting people without reason. It is said that some are target being loyal to the Commonwealth. Several dozen cars being stopped, sometime a member being taken. At times they were taken and eliminated.
. Drones and helicopters are out front of the column. Observed more civilians following along the highway away from the capital toward our column. Many did not have anything except the clothes on their back. We were able to help them with medicinal solutions.
. the convoy advanced to about 40 miles from the capital, Nouakchott. Observed a couple of groups of the militia which then headed west upon the approach of the military convoy.

Above the Capital of Nouakchott

(CF4F Wildcat Pilot): "Hey got some activity below looks like helicopters flying over what looks like a caravan moving outside the city".

(Squadron leader): "is the helicopter from the CofC or Rebels?"

(CF4F Wildcat Pilot): "I cannot tell, probably a Rebel MI-24 Hind im not sure?"

(Squadron leader): "This could pose a danger for the people below, take it out. then we fly back to the Carrier our recon job is done here."

(CF4F Wildcat Pilot): "Rodger."

The CF4F wildcat dives down to take out the suspected rebel helicopter and opens fire on it with its 6 50 cal machine guns busting the tail off causing it to spin out of control and crashing on to the highway below.

A Super Puma helicopter on charter to the UIN Regional Food program has gone missing in Mauritania.
More later.
