Okay, thank you.

I'm selling a load of ex-nation cards for 0.01 if anyone wants to get them cheap!

Edit: I've decided to kick up the price to 0.04. If anyone wants any in particular, telegram me to arrange a price.

This is official, I have completed the list of military equipment of Fluffiness. This is full of soviet materiel from the 60s-70s !

The military in Fluffiness is under the command of the Head of Military, Rachel Fergus.

It is a defense force. There are about 100,000 soldiers. There aren't any weapon making company, but the military operates a few plants to repair or modify the materiel which is purchased abroad.

Pirates operates freely, and may protect Fluffiness alongside the navy.

Fluffiness is a peaceful nation now, most of the equipment comes from an era when we had closer ties with the USSR. However, we still keep an army to defend ourselves against foreign aggressions. Not all the members of the Council feels the same way, but I'd like to modernize and improve our military. However, I admire nation like yours who manage to keep no military. If you were ever under attack, we would be glad to defend you. (Mostly because you worship Fluttershy and I can only agree with this.)

Not one has attacked us, since we engage in international trading and have an amazing landscape many come to visit , even those maxtopians so i guess New leeaf can be the relaxd bar where waring soldiers can hang out bevor its back to their own battlegrounds the next day.

Fluffiness wrote:But Toroi had concerning matters to tell Diana too. Early reports showed that there had been explosions, nuclear explosions, in Loftegen. The electro-magnetic impulsions had caused some electrical isssues in the east of Fluffiness. But worse, this meant that war was not so far. Toroi had planned to try tighten Fluffiness links with Loftegen, but this would have to be postponed. He had conducted a meeting with Rachel Fergus, they had decided to move troops to the Loftegen border. About two-thirds of the armed force would get there. Yet, they had no illusion, they would be crushed in the event of an invasion. So they had begun to implement insurgency tactics, in which Fluffiness wasn't so bad. But they needed more troops and more equipements. Almost everything in Fluffiness arsenal was obsolete (10 MiG-15 are still in use). Fluffiness couldn't resist an invasion by itself.

The government of Loftegen 2 wishes to assure Fluffiness that no quarrel lies between our two nations. We are engaged in defensive operations against terrorists, nothing more. Regarding EMP damage in Fluffiness, Loftegen 2 will happily offer compensation to those affected, and will enter discussions with Fluffiness to determine a just and equitable settlement.

Thank you very much for your offer. We haven't suffered much, we don't need any compensation, but thank you for your kindness. We just didn't expect to detect nuclear explosions in a neighbouring country. We've alerted our troops, who will monitor the situation from our country. I hope the fight is over soon.

Kindest regards,

Snudgskooge's palace

Snoodum, formerly known as Galgaria was formally founded in 47 AFD (After Founder's Death). This sparked the long and bloody history of Galgaria, renamed after the current leader, God-Emperor Snudgeskooge. Many view the country as a hostile, corrupt cesspit of oppression and squalor. This of course is blasphemy!

Snoodum has prospered with every citizen living underground in mega-cities. Some may view the state's measures of control as excessive though this is purely so it can run and continue to be finely tuned to the nth degree so that life runs smoothly. The military control the surface cities, preserved, and in some places, rebuilt to display Snoodum's historic roots. Military installations dot the country and only those given special permits are allowed to the surface.

The Morgenröte rocked again. "This one hit closer to home", the first officer noted. "We better not let them get any closer". Vizekonsul Schulte agreed with that assessment. "Destroy the entire silo. We will have more time for our primary targets later", he ordered. "Herr Vizekonsul, we should watch our heat buildup though, we might have to keep waiting inbetween shots to-". Schulte cut him off "Just do it!".
Over the next three minutes, the corvette reduced the missile silos of WRADC to craters with a salvo of orbital laser fire. Most of the silos were empty now anyways, and for those that weren't the failsafe mechanisms prevented accidental nuclear explosions on the ground. Meanwhile, the onboard instruments showed heat building up in the corvettes laser system to sub-critical levels...

Johann Rettig rejoiced as the "Incoming Missile" warning on his panel ended. He had evaded the shoulder launched anti air missile. Time to give the ground troops more hassle. He swung his R44 "Würger" around for another strafing run. Two LBR55's air-to-ground missiles made their way from his craft to the ground within seconds. One Eciton[/u] armoured car got hit and turned on its side by the explosion, the other LBR55 detonated past its designated target, showering it in shrapnel without doing much lasting damage. "Take that you bastards", Johann muttered to himself as he held down the firing button for the UR50 unguided rockets. One of his rockets hit the hangar itself, which he was supposed to protect, but he couldn't see if any people inside got hit as he zoomed by the area. Speed was his best protection against return fire. What he did notice though was gas grenades being discharged into the hangar from one side, while a group of [i]Raumwaffe troops blasted their way out of the hangar to the opposite site. They were obviously trying to make a run for it. Johann decided to focus on their protection.

Tribun Lara Pfeilke was in her element now. The duel with the Loftegan interceptors was a free-wheeling dogfight of the classical kind, something she had long trained for. Lara was no Tanja Fassberg, but she had quite a reputation for being an excellent pilot. She would have made a great career in the Imperium. Would have, if Vizekonsul Schulte hadn't personally converted her to join the New Light Order.

Now all that counted was downing the forces of darkness. Just as she thought she would never get another shot in, one of the interceptors made a mistake and decided to change his turn direction right now. Lara wasted no second and poured her two 5 MW "Illuminator" class lasers into it from close range. First, it looked as if nothing happened, then one of the fuel tanks in the enemy's wings started being on fire. The fighter broke off for an emergency landing or ejection. Lara didn't care for which, because at the same time another fighter had got a lock on her in return.

---

Captain Lee Gwin took a deep breath. "I have you now", he muttered, pressing the fire button to unleash an air to air missile towards the engine section of the enemy R44 fighter. The ion engines of the strange craft did not emit as much heat as a jet engine, but the heat-seaking missile found its target nevertheless. Just as it was about to make contact, the enemy craft "jumped" forward at an amazing pace, outrunning the fireball.

---

Lara Pfeilke blacked out. As a last resort maneuver, she had simply slammed the throttle full forward. The enormous power of the R44 made it lunge forward at such acceleration that she lost conciousness due to the g-forces. The Emergency Flight Control System (Notfallflugkontrollsystem, NFKS) detected her loss of conciousness and automatically stabilized her flight path in a "straight and level" kind of way. Lara was out of the combat zone for now.

The 114. Raumwaffesicherungskorps, Vizekonsul Schulte's loyal detachment to Loftegen, was equipped with gas masks. While they hated wearing them, now was the time for this unloved piece of equipment to shine. As the paprika smell of the gas grenades began to fill the hangar along with the reddish vapor, most of the 114. put on their gas masks. The Luftwaffe personell inside the hangar were not so lucky. They weren't equipped for combat at all, they were engineers and logistics staff sent to repair the Konsul's F148 VIP airplane and support the Imperial mission to Loftegen. They were also loyal to their Imperator. And they had no clue what was going on. When Tribun Böttcher from the 114. asked their leader, Legat I. Klasse Conrad Kunkel, to come along, many followed him, not knowing that Böttchers order ultimately were to assassinate Lady Zaharra and Imperator Konsul Leo along with her.

The crew inside Hangar 415 got a respite from the gas attack when suddenly an air to ground rocket destroyed parts of the roof of the hangar, creating a "vent" for the gas to get out and fresh air to get in. Still, quite a few of the men and women stumbled outside towards the 1st Security Police Squadron, their arms held up high, noses and eyes itching and running uncontrollably. For them, this fight was over.

Böttcher's men meanwhile detonated a demolition charge at the opposite hangar wall and used the resulting hole to get out of the Hangar. Outside they were facing elements of the 1st SPS, who themselves had just survived an aerial attack by a R44 fighter. A short but intense firefight resulted in which the nearly 200 men of the 114. Raumwaffensicherungskorps ultimately emerged victorious, destryoing two more Ecitron tanks with their Panzerfaust anti-tank rockets and forced the remaining ones into retreat. The 114. had used an LL9 point-defense laser to shoot down any incoming grenades and smoke grenades to obscure their movement, resulting in only light casualties for themselves. Now they were pushing towards the airport buildings proper on foot.

All radio and television stations in the Altenburg Canton, simultaneously:

"There is a civil emergency. Terrorists disguised as members of the Leonism Raumwaffe, or Space Force, have infiltrated the country. They are believed to have arrived at Altenburg International Airport aboard hijacked or stolen Imperial aircraft. A confrontation with Air Force security police resulted in an unknown number of casaulties, and a number of prisoners taken, though word is that some of the 'prisoners' are actually friendly Imperial personnel who have been rescued by our forces."

"An unknown number of terrorists have escaped from the airport grounds, possibly aboard a Metro Transit Authority bus, though other vehicles may have been stolen as well. Citizens are urged to stay indoors, and get off the main roads. Air Force armored cars are attempting to pursue the terrorists, and civilians who stay on the highways may get caught in a cross fire."

"Report anyone wearing a Raumwaffe uniform to your local police. Do not approach or confront them. All such persons are to be considered armed and extremely dangerous. Stay tuned to this station for further announcements."

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Altenburg International Airport:

Major Kenn Whitworth considered his situation. A good third of his armored cars had been knocked out, their burning wrecks dotting the tarmac around Hanger 415. Dozens of his people had been killed or wounded, and a goodly number of terrorists had gotten away under cover of smoke. They also had some kind of point defense laser that could take out grenades, hand thrown ones at least.
On the plus side the hanger was now secure. The irritant gas fired into it was dispersing, and the people affected by it were getting treatment from his medics. The Imp (or rather, terrorist) fighter that had been strafing them had pulled back. He was either out of missiles, or thinking about following his comrades, or both. In any event, he wasn't shooting at Whitworth's command at the moment.
"Get the wounded into the hanger," he ordered his hastily summoned flight commanders. "Pull the surviving cars into a tight circle around it, in case that throttle jockey decides to start shooting again." Whitworth looked at the distant smoke plumes rising from the crash sites of the two Rapiers that had been shot down. "And hope none of that blows our way."

The Altenburg Grand Hotel:
"We don't have time to worry about your <censored> luggage!" 2nd Lt. Beka Hamlin shouted at a recalcitrant guest. "Those wackos could hit this place any moment! You wanna die for some clothes?" When the guest started to argue again, Beka poked at him with the bayonet attached to the muzzle of her weapon. The guest got the point, in more ways than one.

"Touristen, die Ihnen Probleme bereiten?" Beka about jumped out of her skin, then spun to face the source of the words.

"Marcus!" she exclaimed. "I thought you were going with the Emperor!"

Trenturio Marcus Höfner grinned. "Ich war es, aber die Admiralin entschied, dass sie diesen Ruhm für sich haben wollte."

"She seems like the type," Beka said, nodding. "Want to help me herd civilians?"

"That's why I'm here," Marcus answered.

Loftegen 2 Army SuperScarab 11-031249, now wearing the call sign Imperial One:

"Where are we going?" Leo asked.

"Government House," the Executive Protective Service agent answered. "The Prime Minister's Command Bunker is there. It's proof against anything short of a direct hit with a megaton range nuke. You'll be safe there."

"What about Lady Zaharra?" Leo said. "Her life is in danger!"

To Leo's consternation and amazement, the Lofties in the helicopter started laughing.
