West Europa Regional Message Board
Great Britain is rebuilding it's defence forces. A handful of new warship designs are being laid down in the limited dry dock space: 2 Hawthorn-class destroyers (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J-,_K-_and_N-class_destroyer#K_class), 2 Destiny-class aircraft carriers (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Ark_Royal_(91)), a new HMS Dreadnought (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/King_George_V-class_battleship_(1939)), and 7 Triton-class submarines (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_T-class_submarine#Group_One_boats). The Army and Air Force are training new troops and expanding, and the Marines are being re-established as a military force, and are receiving new equipment: The Bren light machine gun, ML 3-inch mortar, Ordnance QF 2-pounder AT gun, BL 4.5-inch Medium Field Gun, QF 3.7-inch AA gun, and Vickers Wellington bomber. Supermarine has also started manufacturing a more basic version of the Spitfire originally developed in Alitannia.
All troops except for RAF pilots have been fully trained, all aircraft have arrived, and small military airbases have been finished at RAF High Wycombe, Leuchars, Marham, Mona, and Northolt. Work on upgrading all five to medium airbases has begun.
Unfortunately, the British economy, heavily reliant on Nearly Finnish exports, has been badly affected by the recession in California. Many jobs have been lost, companies closed, and wages are down across the board. Amidst a public outcry, and the return of the strikes, several important diplomats have been dispatched to Nearly Finland to see what can be done.
There are quite a few Spanish companies who would love to pick up the slack. While we could survive the increasingly globalised depression through colonial economics, we'd love to export outside the Spanish Empire.
Britain's regional airports in Glasgow, Cardiff, and London are complete, as is a local airport in Antigua (which is upgrading to regional)

The Spanish stock market jumped some today when it was announced that several companies have secured lucrative deals to export to the markets of the United Kingdom AU. Many companies and investors had been worried that the depression going on in the Americas would make its effects known in Europe through a decrease in the consumption of exported goods. Colonial companies, particularly the sugar plantations in Cuba and Puerto Rico, were particularly worried as their biggest customers have been the Americas. This new deal means that there will be at least some place to pick up the slack, though British trade officials have warned that consumption in Great Britain is down.
And, chicos, I'm sure the talking heads in the Cortés are breathing a sigh of relief right now. If the depression had made its way into Spain, especially into our colonies, it would likely have shattered the fragile peace we have managed to achieve with local factions. Cuba, in particular, has only just managed to recover from the disastrous rebellions of a few years ago, and it is likely that a depression would have touched off another wave of rebellions.
In other news, Cardinal Espero of Seville has been publicly urging the government to intervene in Santiago au to protect the rights of Catholics and the Catholic Church, currently under assault by the government there. The King has yet to respond. Also in today's news, Prince Felipe put forward a motion in the Cortés to add to the king's titles, the title of "Emperor of Africa." The Cortés is currently debating the issue, and will likely put it aside in favor of more pressing appointments.
Thanks for watching, niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiños! This has been Perros Calientes, and you've been watching Televisión Española - bringing you the truth, no matter how bad it hurts.
Military construction updates:
The Hawthorn-class destroyers HMS Hawthorn and HMS Denny have been commissioned into the Royal Navy, and two more are being laid down. 10 small drydocks are being built across all naval bases. All military pilots are now fully trained.
