How is the Balzac Republic?
The MV Horton is progressing well with the significant repairs and updating. Also included are new propellers which will improve speed, fuel consumption, and navigation.
Hope to be able to send some nice farming equipment to you.

Hi Chris, I need to hit the reset button on my photo hosting, hopefully this week. I will re edit this thread to update the back ground, Military, TOE etc. Stay tuned.

Balzac continues to be a dynamic developed Country with a non aligned armed neutrality stance.
The BSDF has been transformed into a very modern and effective force. Manpower is still an issue but the change to the 2020 force structure is on course. WIP.

Balzac is and will always be open to trade and economic development.

The Commonwealth, many of its businesses and corporations along with Defense Divisions are getting ready for the trade show and defense exhibit & Convention. Several have signed up for a booth for display and the meet and greet area. There will be a larger cocktail social that all military are invited along with defense representatives and political leaders.
.
The 'New Panther' based upon the design of the WW2 Panther Tank will be display at the convention. Of course it is a new vehicle, with 120mm Rein-metal smooth-bore cannon, thermal sight, hydraulic suspension system, with a 1500 hp gas-turbine engine. Standard features are GPS, laser range-finder, wind gauge with a reliable auto-loader. List Price is $3,000,000 with standard features, a real bargain as compared to the M1A1 or M1A2 Abrams, Leopard 2A6, LeClerc, Challenger 2. It has enhance surviviability features including ECM detection/jamming, ADS. Crew of 3 or 4 for the Panther. The Russians shudder to think of this when they see it, ask Putin.

The Republic left some military equipment behind in West Sahara, after being ordered out of Yer Bouti. To respect that country's sovereignty we had to leave some minor equipment. Since Yer Bouti we could not allow our ships into Yer Bouti port, then to load nor allow resupply. The battalions moved into West Sahara. We left the many vehicles behind. Balzac Republic will receive credit in terms of production of submarine and corvettes, and aircraft.

Sweden is sending train load of gently used CV9040 and some surplus Centurions armed with 105mm guns to the Balzac Republic. The Centurions have been in storage for over a decade, some 2 decades, pulled out once every few years for testing systems and the engines. Expect 2-3 battalions worth of each type of vehicle.
.
Germany is making available some more Leopard 2A6 for a nominal fee and providing a Leopard 2A4 as an additional bonus up to two battalions of each in an effort to support the Balzac Republic's humanitarian effort in Yer Bouti and fighting Al Kabab. The fight against Al Kabab was something that cost lives and equipment.
.
Expect to receive the SS Hanover with the equipment very soon in port.
There has been a minor incurion by some people with military camo, without insigna, from Camastan. Identifed as a team with about 7-8 people. As helos were searching for them to locate, identify and apprehend them a few shots were fired at the Fuchs and Luchs. There was a quick return trip on some 4 or 5 FAVs, crossing the border back into Camastan. 2 km in a small town known as Crachead, they turned the corned not to be seen again. There were some heavy trucks moving in and out the next morning, one was clearly identified as The Heavy Water Co. Wonder if they work in Yer Bouti with a subsidiary.

Equipment has been received from Sweden, The two shippments totaled 140 CV9040s, CV90-120 mortars, CV90 AA systems, 6x6 and 8x8 wheeled APCs, More Grippens where flown over by our pilots after being updated with latest software package.
C-130s flew extra parts, fuels drop tanks, and some missiles to Balzac.
.
Also received Leopard 2A4 and Leopard 2A6 MBTs from Germany by ship. Ammo was included. Spare parts were included. .The painting preocess is being conducted over the next few weeks for those needing it and touch up paint is applied as needed.
Goatland Island may be soon in the news. Camastan posted some Camastan flags on the island, Two witnesses said that they saw boats land and a few people dressed in dark outfits in the early evening. they witnesses saw them riding off on bikes carring a pole or pack of some kind. Another witness left the bar around 10pm saw a guy in similar outfit posting a Camastan flag. The bag he was carrying was left. But it appears to be a simple back pack that was found in a ditch.
.
Current speculation is being talked about on Goatland of a couple of Camastan personal landing and putting up the two flags and a few people in Township of Goat were out putting them up for fun and games.

Camastan denies any such rumours and wishes to point out that all flags are arenalways raised in he morning. Furthermore, flannel onesie outfits are worn on night ops and are brightly coloured and patterned - if we’re going to fight, let’s clash!

More to follow.

Having relinquished all connections with Balzac I am unable to comment on any activities with regard to Goatland.

The only contact Yer Bouti has in this area would be with the government of Kamanaskis.
A small mountainous, rebellious area to their (Camastan) West.

The previous leader was chased out of town. Under new leadership, not improved mind you, not all is known, but some favorable and unethical dealings with Yer Bouti. Couple of Flag officers are in custody, others being questioned. Internal Financial Group (IF Group) is conducting audit andevaluation. €4,000,000 is missing, wired out.
.
It has also been determined that €2,000,000 paid to a equipment broker in Germany more than was charged. The Deusbanc has determined it was wired to an Swiss account through the Cayman Islands.

Reports of possible small reconnaissance parties in the area around Yer Bouti have been considered cheeky and appear to have cracks in the truthiness of said reports.

In no way does Camastan claim that fleece onesies are suitable in this weather; however other uniform elements are being considered. The resurgence of the 3/4 mesh tee and hot pants being field tested are successful.

The Balzac Republic elected Prince Gustaulf as it Prime Minister, King Hans is serving as King of Balzac Repbulic, mostly in cerimonial role. This election is the result of the missing funds from the treasury of the former Prime Minister who is in Lybia currently.
.
The Royal Prince is related to the King, needless to say. He is third in line to the throne. He was questioned extensively about serving as king in the future. The Prince earned his MA in Economics at Oxford University in England. Prior he had earned and Engineering degree at Geneva University.
.
Balzac Republic has asked to become a member of NATO, recommending that Sweden, Norway and Finland become members as well. want to expand their support to and from NATO. Putinville, has become expansive in their plans of territory and influence.
.
Poland is requesting permanent US military station, troops and equipment. Currently, Stryker Battalion is in Poland training. Some armored forces are in the Baltic Countries.
.
The countries of Sweden, Norway, Finland and Balzac Republic along with Camastan are building capability for defense and mutual support. Balzac Republic and Camastan still have border disput. Goatland Island is of national concern.

As PM Gustulff, announced a opportunity for a complete Peace Treaty of friendship. The opportunity is tremendous.
.
Balzac, Finland, Norway, Sweden have ink the ICE Treaty of mutual military and economic assistance. Iceland and Greenland are economic members and evaluating the military options and responsibilities to become ICE Members.
.
The Militaries of these countries share the use of many of the same types of vehicles, ammo, Logistics, languages, type on environment, economic scope. PRC is still offered membership to the ICE Treaty Group.
