Turkish Armed Forces Commit to Rebuilding Operations
| Following PKK attacks on the Turkish Armed Forces, the Land Forces Command in Ankara has authorized a new operation to rebuild the damage caused by the two day conflict. In particular, much needed supplies will be delivered to the people of the Hakkari Province, which the TAF has claimed were stolen by PKK fighters. Yüksekova, which was hit hard by mortar fire, will be the main focus of reconstruction operations as soldiers rebuild partially destroyed homes and clear rubble piles looking for any survivors who may have been trapped during the strikes. The Turkish Government has issued an advisory to the provinces bordering Iraq and Iran, stating that the kurds should surrender now or be annihilated by the army, implying Turkey will be ready to commit to a second operation against the kurds. |
Would you like a trade deal with England?
England. Switching nations, are we?
No hes not lol
Hmm. Shame. I was hoping for another country of tourists to come see the Ayasofya.
Brazil began seeking to get closer economically to it's allies. Unfortunately, due to the current international situation, the only ally (or at least unofficially) was Turkey. Being in a stategic location, having access both to the Black and Mediterranean Sea, it had quite sizable trade power in the east of the Mediterranean. Being rich in natural resources, it didn't need many natuarl goods from Turkey, but the resource Brazil laked was cooper. Turkey also plays an important role as a transit passage for crude oil and natural gas shipments and so was also interested, if potential oil shipments could be discussed.
Since Spain and the UBR activly supported the Russians during the Russian Question regarding it's holocaust, many nations imposed strict sanctions on both states. However, Brazil was in an interesting position regarding international politics. While not activly supporting any side, it did withdraw from the BRRI due to Russia's actions, but it officially remained neutral. The main concern were UBR's connections to the oil shipments to Brazil as well as critical finances connected to the emerging Embraer fifth generation fighter project. Nearing the end of the development, almost ready for its first flight, Brazil activly announced that it would not impose sanctions and continue with the trade between UBR and Brazil, but it will impose strict trade restrictions on Spain as well as limit travel rights between both nations.
Brazil was immediately ready to back its rejection of imposing sanctions against UBR by stating that UBR, specifically their military institutions, have activly supported the research efforts of Embraer as well as the Brazilian government as well as freely trading important resources such as oil to help Brazil grow its industrial capacity and run most of its military on oil imported from the UBR. No other nation was willing to supply those cruicial goods to Brazil and so it was left with no choice but to continue trade with the UBR.
However, fearing that this decision might carry international retribution, Brazil somewhat limited travel rights between Brazil and the UBR, but it still supported the student society to study abroad in Iraq and seek jobs there as well as head for any necessary training in terms of military or manufacturing and design.
You only need a carrier if you're going to make it your business to roll up on other shores and knock on peoples' doors.
That's why I'm designing new coastal artillery.
Well, they're used for more than just that but okay.
Indeed it is. Speaking of which, how's your fighter going?
Yeah, I understand, they're a powerful tool for enforcing air superiority. But I have some more pressing concerns, like making new tanks, kicking the PKK and Hizbullah out of Turkey, and retraining the Maroon Berets.
For all their praise, they actually only train to win NATO competitions. They're not well equipped for combat scenarios and I want them to be equipped for those situations. Thus, I'm building a new proving ground somewhere in Turkey.
... I'm 100% certain either Kiberia, Lanvetland or Moth will have something to say to this. My range of knowladge is with tanks and to little extent planes. I know little about navy.
Yes they would. However, from experience, the countries that need aircraft carriers are the ones who are enforcing something far away. My enemies, (which I don't have a lot of at this point) are kurdish militant groups with soviet weapons. Anyone who poses a threat is on my border. Anyone who's outside the range of my aircraft is probably not a country I want to mess with. Everyone else could probably be suppressed with a few Osman Gazi-class HCs. In any case, Turkey's foreign policy is to control its neighbors and not overextend. The balkans and the middle east are already a handful when it comes to random interventions, and an occupation would almost certainly be the straw that breaks the camel's back. For now, I don't see a direct need for an aircraft carrier, and I probably won't need one for a very long time.
Wait, you're talking about you not needing an aircraft carrier? Well that's obvious that you don't. You're already on the passage between two big seas and your trapped in the Med between the balkans and the middle east. Rhodesia on the other hand, has a massive coast and it's on the open Indian Ocean.
True, but he's got no enemies either. He can just build airbases along his coast and invest in destroyers like I do.
And the more I think about it, the more I think I need an aircraft carrier just to keep Rhodesia away.
Well, if you want to, once my carrier is finished, I can sell you my old one. It will finish its overhaul in two IRL days.
We're good at modernizing, we'll work it out.
Alrighty, suit yourself.
