Moldova
2 agents of the EE were picked up in Balti . They were speaking mixed Romanian and Russian which caught the attention of police and security. 3 more picked in the capital Chisnau. They were carrying pistols in a bar/resturant. They were observed scouting government buildings, police stations and small military. Some of their emails and calls were intercepted and translated. An-alyze the other commuication. Unable to collect any more data.
Romania
EE agents were also apprehended in Bucharest, Romania. Two died in a gun battle. One of our MPs died and 2 others wounded requiring a visit to the hospital. Four others were questioned repeatedly. Not allowing them sleep.
. IL-76 with radar dome that was on patrol in the Black Sea was target by radar, aledgedly AAA fire was shot their way as they were at 12,000 feet. Scared the crude out of the crew. Several smaller vessels were observed, e-signals evaluated.
Mediterranean Sea.
Protests were filed at the UIN for the criminal act taking a passenger liner. Fortunately it and the people were all released. Radar lock on F-16 out of Corsica fortunately there were not any SAM fired at the F-16 fly-by. 4 YAK -17 fighters did take off to meet the F-16 fly-by, but they were a bit late and they are relatively slow.
. Radio and digital communications from the EE Med Task Force are going both ways with heavy volume of traffic. Cryptologists and the computer systems were working diligently to learn intent and orders.....

The EE Naval task force has been targeting our military aircraft and also civilian air liners.
Varna, Bulgariadom is have an incremental naval buildup in port. The 2 supply convoys and 6 LST ships they all hugged the African coast to reduce chance of an encounter with the EE task force, even with escorts.

In the Med.
Near Crete, a SSN-688 detected an Alpha making noise heading east at 600 ft moving at 12 knots. The 688 detected a Udaloy to the northwest of it position. it seemed to be following it over the last few hours. The Alpha slowed down and increased depth that had detected the SSN-688 on passive sonar. U-212 detect an EE Alpha. The Alpha had detected a LCS moving at 42 knots towards Crete, Western Crete Naval Base. The Alpha plotted for the LCS, then fired a torpedo on it. The noise gave a clear position for targeting. The 688 fired upon the Alpha. It targeted the Udaloy then fired 2 Mk 48 ACAP at it. The LCS was hit and destroyed by the EE torpedo. After its sonar reported the impact on the LCS, it reported a high speed torpedo headed it way. The Alpha accelerated trying to maximize speed. A rade it lost. The Udaloy fired 3 sub-rock torpedoes at the 688. It detected the inbound torpedoes, fired 3 more sub-rock torpedoes at the 688. 3 minutes later Mk48 ACAP exploded 20 feet below the keel of the ship, the over-pressure, under-pressure and then over-pressure from the non-impact explosion broke the hull of the Udaloy, The second Mk 48 did the same ripped the hull, it sank within 2 minutes. 1 sub-rock hit the 688, the noise from that explosion and the cracking sounds brought two more sub-rocks into it. It sank too.
The losses for the Commonwealth are 1 LCS, 1 SSN-688 class. The the EE it lost an Alpha and a Udaloy,, even though one Ka-52 was airborne. It flew to the Kiev.
.
A large Amphibious task force that had been sailing east along the African coast turned north to head to the Bosporus Straight and then to Bulgaria-dom. It does have a dozen escorts and 8 logistics & supply ships. X-47 drone is providing intel to the fleet and command. Air cover with F-16 in air-to-air and A-6 in anti-ship role, accompanied by an E-2 Hawkeye.

Black Sea
A Slava Class cruiser sortied out with a Udaloy DDG south out of Crimea Peninsula hugging the eastern shore, Escort by Nanuchka corvettes. Two LCS corvettes out of Varna, Bulgaria. LCS-42 only has 6 Harpoons while LCS-56 only has 4 Harpoons since being issued to all warships the need to conserve critical weapon is essential . These 2 LCS come into long range of the EE ships. A X-47 provided information to the LCS, A X-Putin drone by EE did the same targeting the two ships. A Nanuchka fired 4 missiles at LCS-42 and a Slava fired 4 SS-N-12 Sandbox Missiles at the LCS-56. The young Lt of LCS-56 is a reserve office in the CoC Navy, hesitated to fire his Harpoons. He did fire 2 Harpoons at the Slava. The LCS radar system detected the incoming, turning further to port, to expose the air-defense weapons. The LCS fired 12 AIR-120 AARAAM missiles hitting two incoming Sandbox missiles, the 57mm gun fired round after round at the SS-N-12 Sandbox hitting one. The last SS-N-12 hit the LCS,... the expolosion cut the ship in two sinking almost immediately. Two survived that were pulled out later, one dying in route. Both Harpoons fired at the Slava were shot down by 6 SA-N-6 Grumble missiles and 4 SA-N-8 Gecko missiles.
. LCS 42 fired all 6 missiles targeting the Udaloy. The Udaloy fired 4 SS-N-14 Silex anti-ship missiles first, none had the air-borne range, but 3 AIM-120 AARAAM were fired but did not have a target as each of the income missile hit the water. A Namuchka was about 1 NM to the west of the Udaloy, it had fired its four missiles at LCS-42. The AIM-120s hit the first two missiles, The 57mm destroyed another, the fourth hit the LCS hitting the bow. Water flooding the ship. despite being at battle stations. # Harpoons were focused on the Nanuchka two which hit despite the air defense systems. No survivors. The Udaloy engaged their missiles hitting 2 Harpoon at range by the SA-N-9 Gauntlet missiles with 12 being fired. The other was destroyed by the AK-630 30mm gait-ling guns.
. The helicopter drone from an LCS was flown back to Varna as the automatic system had it fly high, The other one was lost being aboard ship when it was hit and sank.

Blue Angle air show in Varna, Bulgaria.



Opposing aircraft...







I still have some work to do.

By International Treaty the Borphorous Straights are navigational waters. The CoC is closing the straight to EE shipping, Military are commercial. The CoC task Force is heading to Varna, Bulgaria. Do not hinder, harassment will not be accepted nor tolerated.

Petition filed with UIN.

Mediterranean Sea
East northeast ofChania, Crete (on the northwestern coast) the support ships of the EE task force were detect in same group as the Kirov, Kiev, a Udaloy Sovmenny and a Slava-Class Moskova having lost a Slava and Udaloy from air craft from the Commonwealth with Harpoons.
Weapon expenditure has been high, the older Harpoons that we acquired for the CoC are not as effective with update defensive systems. The US is making more available as the new LRASM, the Long Range Anti-Ship Missile the US is buying are coming in. The CoC will be purchasing those as well as sever companies in the Commonwealth produce components for the missile. The CoC has fired over 100 Harpoons in the last few days.
12 cruise missiles hit the western Crete Air Base and 6 hit the West Crete Air Base causing damage to aircraft, the tarmac, bunkers and radar installations. Dozen of trucks and other vehicles are smoldings on the tarmac. 6 B-70 Valkyries flying out of Americus Island each with 6 Harpoons approaching Crete from the west fire the anti-ship missiles at the larger targets. Even with the support ships in the mix the missles may have terminal guidance to target those ship vs the war ships. Out of Tripoli (Country of) in the eastern Med, north of Isreal, 16 F-16 are armed for self-defense while each carrying a Harpoon.
Tunis, Tunisadom AF base launched 8 A-6 each with a Harpoon and 8 S-2 each with 2 Harpoons. 2 Timing was planned and coordinated with communication by satellite data link.
From Crete 4 7-ton MAN Trucks arrived along the coast away from any development with security. The C4I van received the targeting information by data link, verified by the technicians and fire control coordinated for impact with the other 64 Harpoons. Each MAN truck has 4 Harpoons in the truck bed in launch position to add 16 more to the mix.
As missiles were picked up by EE satellites and the radars, the Fire Control defensive system became very active. Firing of SA-N-6, SA-N-9, SA-n-8, SA-N-20 were firing missile after missile. This is not Aegis SPY-1 system!!! Air defense missile magazines from the Slava class, Udaloy, and Sevmenny ships were emptied to save themselves and the crewmen on board. The 100mm, 130mm, 76mm guns along with the AK-630 30mm gait-ling guns opened fire. The defense systems were engaged. Of the 80 incoming missiles 38 were shot down, 6 missed from chaff, aluminum canisters to decoy the Harpoon targeting system.
7 hit the Kiirov which caused secondary explosion and more explsions, sinking her, The Kiev received 6heavily damaging the hull, superstructure, engine room and crew quarters. Large pail of black smoke ws seen for miles and miles as it rode low in the water. The Slava class sank with 4 hitting her was a burning hulk until it sank the next day. 3 hit the Udaloy, knocking her out of all action An oiler was hit by 4 Harpoons sinking the next day, whicle 3 hit the ammunition ships which caused more explsions than could be recorded. The general supply ship also sank. The Sevremenny was heavily damaged, but still making headway toward the Black Sea.
The A-4, A-7 with iron bombs were routed to the area of the ## ships. with lasers targeting bomb after bomb hit and entered the hull of the remaining ship causing fires, flooding death & destruction. Sinking all the remaining ships of the EE task force. 7 A-4 were shot down and 3 A-7 light attack planes were lost. Helicopter on rescue were have to pick up 7 pilots, although two died later. Also rescued were over 400 EE crewmen, which were taken prisnor and secured on Crete.

Hahahahaha! Under Mech's leadership? You will be buried in the bag he left you holding. This is stupid. You will leave this world radioactive, but you will be dead, anyway. As long as the Bear is in his cave, DON'T POKE HIM! if he sticks a claw out, hit it with a hammer to keep him honest, but otherwise, LEAVE HIM ALONE!

See my instructions last para other thread!

Take orders from mech...? Geez, if he told me how to pee, I'd have a boot full of pee.

Run quickly away from that guy! And KEEP runnin'! Run FASTER, you fool, you fool!

Black Sea
Global Hawk is airborne, as usual, to compliment our satellites, noting patrols in the sea in eastern and northern area.
. 4 Mig-29 our of Varna AF base with E-2 Tracker and an S-3 tanker on our patrol. The planes and in two groups of two. One plane in a group will turn on its active radar as the other pair are in passive mode. Then they switch, and then later switch both passive. As the Global Hawk, the E-2 and a satellite in area for observation in various spectrum ranges.
.
EE has asked for lower rates for natural gass transit through to western Europe by Ukraine. Ukraine to date has resisted any decrease in the usage rate. EE is wanting lower cost to increase profits, very capitalist of them.
.
The Commonwealth Imperial Military Command has reached out to the NC Military Command.
Looking to build a coalition. Reaching out to other nations, the UIN.
.
Nigeriandom has received a gift from the UK of Saladin and Saracen 6x6 AFV, and Challenger 1 MBTs and MCV-80s from stocks that have been surplus. Crews and training had been conducted for 3 months in the UK at Salisbury Plain for the armored training. The trainees had done well having graduated from armor school. Most of the Nigerian-Dom soldier have been or arriving in Romania-dom. Over 50,000 soldiers are expected. Former Soviet bloc countries are providing older Russian equipment as RPGs, ATGM weapon systems, conducting training with those. Several are duds: mis-fire, lack of control using wire guided. But great training otherwise. Use the older, crap stuff. Buring through that old stuff, or trying to as there is some much from the Cold War.
