*Also begins shipping Jägdpuma MBTs to Escanthea*
IC: Helicopter carriers? Yes.
Supercarriers? You're gonna have to fight the admiralty hard for that.
As for the nuclear program, we already kinda assumed that you're working on a reactor. Just don't do anything bad with it, like making radioweapons.
OOC: wait seriously are you volunteering to have the one nuke
Meanwhile in Acarian Military Intelligence
It looks like several nations have some new toys that they are willing to try out. Unfortunately, we had our spies pulled out of Thalasus. However, spies in other nations are still active. Acaria already received the news of the new technologies long before they were announced to the public. Military intelligence wasn't worried yet. Everything had a counter, and Acaria reviewed and updated its technologies every 6 months. However, it was concerning of this sudden race. However, it was concluded that other nations announced their technologies due to Thalasus' announcement. Acaria wasn't quite ready to reveal its own technologies, and it won't bother to rush the designs out either. From the Acarian point of view, everything was going great.
In the face of the arms race that was occurring, French Albania remained decidedly silent on the matter. Defense Minister Arkan Petrosian had only the following to say:
"Any state that provokes our nation will be in for a severe reckoning. We do not announce our new weapons systems; we have no desire for our enemies to know our tactical and strategic capabilities. The people of French Albania are well-armed and our armed forces are well led. Should others look to test us, we will be disappointed, but we will be ready."
In other news, at the recent talks with Feminamia, Foreign Minister Anton Theroux reportedly 'absolutely nailed' a trick we are told is called a 'Christ Air', and told reporters that he hoped future talks would be just as sick, saying that for too long his monumental skills had been restrained by diplomatic procedure, and he was thrilled to engage with a people who 'truly knew what it was to be the illest', conveying his wishes that the Feminamian delegation might 'always land their tre flips, kill their fakies, and nail their shuvits'.
His children are reported to be 'thoroughly embarrassed', and have unanimously asserted that they absolutely prefer rollerblading.
This reporter certainly has no idea what this world is becoming.
For FANN, I'm Leon Toreli.
*A rivalry is declared on who shall shred the grinds the bestest*
Yeah we just want a few light ones. It's easier than building new ones or retrofitting the old ones, and leaves us some room to focus on the rest of the fleet. Besides, as a matter of national pride we want our capital ships to be Escanthean built.
As for nukes, I'm actually not in desire of any weapons for once. I'm just hoping to develop it for energy purposes so we can export more of our oil and natural gas. Also we want nuclear powered capital ships because of the whole never needing to refuel the ship thing.
As for helicopter carriers, we have the Anaga class carrier and the Stingray class amphibious assault vehicle, comparable to the RL Japanese Hyūga class and the American Wasp class, respectively. Both are worth $1.5 billion each.
The largest fighter-carrying ship the Admiralty is willing to let go is the outdated Maroko class, comparable to the RL British HMS Invincible. You would need to do some work on the steam catapults and armament, but it should be useful enough in combat to justify the $2.5 billion price tag.
"Politics is the art of the grindable, the art of the next sickest."
-Otto Von Bismarck
I'll buy 3 of each helicopter carrier class. I'll get back to you on the Maroko class ships. First I'd like to see what domestic industrial output projections will be. Just keep em off the scrapping list till then, yeah?
In response to the ongoing arms race, Feminamia has decided to build yet another art gallery. We attempted to find the head of the armed forces for their comment on the matter, but we're not currently sure if we even have a head of the armed forces. Or an armed forces.
The new gallery is really quite lovely, though.
