Wellsia wrote:One last flag. This is the ancient flag of the Anglo-Saxon Kingdom of Mercia. The original concept of Wellsia was a steam-punk Victorian Britain. The name is from H.G.Wells. Want to get back to the original idea, but with a modern nation in place of steampunk. Opinions or ideas about flag will be appreciated

Mercian flag is top notch! I always use it when playing as a custom Anglo-Saxon nation in EU4.

If she died in '41, it could have been to an Alteran bombing raid as it would be too early in the war for both sides to have perfected aerial defence.

I won't have anything resembling a strategic bomber until late '44 at the earliest; my doctrine thoroughly rejects the trendy ideas of strategic airpower in the interwar period and there is no industrial capacity (or military interest) for starting it up until mid war.

And when that happens it will be with Not!B-29s focused on daylight point target bombing, not area bombing.

Corindia is pretty firmly in the Noronican sphere at this point and could tag along for any bombing campaigns that pop up. Because of the arrangement of the belligerents there's not too much we can strike from Corindia proper though.

The Robledo B8 Enfilade Bomber Aircraft



Type: Heavy Bomber
First Flight: 1936



Nation of Origin: Corindia
Operators: Corindia (Retired),
Domanania (5, Retired)
Maximum Take-off weight: 36000kg
Speed: 575km/h
Range: 7400km
Ceiling: 10000m
Length: 22.9m
Wingspan: 32.5m
Height : 7.2m
Engines: 4 x Coron Electro 2-500B


Robledo B8 Enfilade Bomber Aircraft


The Robledo B8 Enfilade Heavy Bomber was a four-engined bomber aircraft used by the Corindi Air Force Army, and Navy during the First Imperial War, World War II, and the Korean War. Robledo's design featured a mid-mounted wing of small area and high aspect ratio, a tricycle landing gear and a large single-fin rudder. Power came from four Coron Electro 2-500B 24 radial engines with turbosuperchargers and driving four-bladed propellers. The engines were cooled by counter-rotating fans positioned just inside the engine cowlings. Defensive armament included power-operated nose, dorsal, ventral and tail turrets along with two free-swiveling machine guns at the beam positions.

Besides aerial bombardment, the B8 also served as an impromptu transport aircraft for cargo and passengers. Additionally, dozens of variants of the B8 were employed in a wide variety of non-combat roles such as air-sea rescue, scientific and military research, and missile tracking and recovery. After the Korean War it continued to be used for military and civilian uses by numerous countries around the region, including Corindia, which retired the final airframe from military use in 1950. It was largely replaced by the Cabrera B12 Coracero in Corindi service, with the transition beginning as soon as the B12 was available in meaningful quantities. By the end of the 1945, the B8 had largely been relegated to non-combat duties. Most examples were scrapped, although several are still flying in the hands of civilian operators and can frequently be seen at airshows.

Cabrera B12 "Coracero" Bomber Aircraft


The Cabrera B12 "Coracero" Heavy Bomber was a four-engined bomber aircraft used by the Corindi Air Force, Army, and Navy during the First Imperial War, World War II, and the Korean War. The basic design of the engines and wings of the bomber were largely similar to those of the HCT4, which in turn were derived from a civilian airliner, the Bretodeau PL4. Besides aerial bombardment, the B12 also served as an impromptu transport aircraft at times. Additionally, dozens of variants of the B12 were employed in a wide variety of non-combat roles such as air-sea rescue, scientific and military research, and missile tracking and recovery. After the Korean War it continued to be used for military and civilian uses by numerous countries around the region, including Corindia, which retired the final airframe from military use in 1965, although several are still flying in the hands of civilian operators.

I doubt Altera would be truly strategic in their bombing either - more likely a series of much smaller raids using light/medium bombers.

Is the purpose to attack infrastructure behind enemy lines?

how did it correct push up to sports?

In Altera's case: yes. Trying to slow the war machine of AM in order to give the pulverised forces of AR some breathing room.

That's strategic bombing.

Because I want two of these women to die from carpet-bombing (the RMB was speaking of carpet-bombing after all)

Jasmine Ansari, Kripa Oum Rupchai and Indira Sahi

TBD portrait, 1885


First Female Doctors of Khas-Kirat Empire to Obtain Degree in Western Medicine



Born: April 30, 1865 - Hangate of Sinja, Khas-Kirat Empire (Ansari);
June 8, 1865 - Second Tamsaling Hangate, Khas-Kirat Empire (Oum Rupchai);
?, 1867 - Hangate of Sinja, Khas-Kirat Empire (Sahi)

Died: August 20, 1888 - Hangate of Sinja, Khas-Kirat Empire (Ansari, 23);
February 17, 1941 - Second Tamsaling Hangate, Empire of Magarat (Oum Rupchai, 76);
February 17, 1941 - Second Tamsaling Hangate, Empire of Magarat (Sahi, 74)

Jasmine Ansari, Kripa Oum Rupchai and Indira Sahi are the first Magarati women to study and graduate with a degree in Western medicine.

Early life

Ansari was born in a southern Sinjali Muslim family. They had been influential landowners but were in financial trouble by the time she was born. Being a prodigy, she managed to enroll in Ghan Pokhara Girls School on scholarship. There she met Oum Rupchai and the two became close friends.

Oum Rupchai was the only daughter of the Tamuwani General Seisai Oum Rupchai. Her father had her enrolled at Ghan Pokhara Girls School with the hopes of getting her married into the Tamuwani nobility. Although she got married at the age of 17, she was convinced by her friend Ansari to study further.

Not much is known about the early life of Sahi.

Medical training

Though none of the three women were Christians (some sources state that Oum Rupchai's husband was a convert), they managed to receive aid from the Nyssic Presbyterian Church's education program within the Khas-Kirat Empire. This enabled them to study Western medicine for four years at University of Townside.

Medical career

TBD

Death and legacy

Ansari died of tuberculosis on August 20 1888 barely a year after she graduated. Her death was a huge factor in Oum Rupchai and Sahi establishing multiple gynecology and tuberculosis hospitals throughout the Khas-Kirat Empire. Among them, Ansari Tuberculosis Control Center in Sinja Valley is still active to this day.

Oum Rupchai and Sahi would die on February 17 1941 at a regional hospital in Ghan Pokhara, Second Tamuwan Hangate, Empire of Magarat during an aerial bombing raid by Alteran Republics.

Also, I need a uni that taught Western medicine way back in 1880s. The only one I know is Townside's uni. I want to know if there were any other unis.

Townisde will always welcome more international student rate tuition fees ~~~

cars apparently accounted for over 10% of my scientific advancement :(

on a side note though if public transport was more viable I could imagine myself unironically supporting a car ban

Are my RPs cursed or something?

Miklania wrote:That's strategic bombing.

Yes, but what I'm trying to say is that it wouldn't be on a grand scale ala RAF/USAF 1943.

More like semi-regular Doolittle raids: relatively small numbers of aircraft going behind enemy lines to bomb - but not achieving anything truly strategic.

I think ineffective strategic bombing still counts as strategic bombing

But I'm not saying it isn't.
