[b]Private to Transvaal[/b]

During the recent conflict in Transvaal, the surviving naval ships of the Republic, along with their crews and captains, have transferred themselves to our command. However, our navy does not have the capacity to field and maintain these vessels. Many of them are undergoing repairs or maintenance related to the recent war, but once they are out, we will have no choice but to mothball them.

The alternative is that they be returned to Transvaal. Additionally, crews and captains must be taken care of. We have yet to poll them like we have with the defecting ground troops as to where they want to go from this point. Ultimately their fates are up to whether they want to go back to their ships, go back to their families, or take their families with them to Arctica.

To address these issues, we request a meeting in either Maputo or a city of your choice. Representing Arctica will be Foreign Minister Ramiaramanana and representing the ships and crews in question will be Admiral Kruger.

OOC: List of ships is here http://forums.cybernations.net/index.php?showtopic=98271&view=findpost&p=2629143

General Teddy O'Donovan and newly promoted Admiral Harris will be pleased to meet with Admiral Kruger and Minister Ramiaramanana in Maputo to discuss the future of the former navy of Transvaal, currently held by defecting crews in Arctican ports.

OOC: Fast forward to meeting.

Any combat force would need substantial support units to ensure that its combat capability remains supreme. In the eve of the expansion of the Transvaal Navy, Cochin Chamber of Commerce offers to construct and sell a wide variety of premium Naval Support vessels which would greatly improve the power projection of Transvaal Navy.

We offer to construct

Fleet Replenisher (48.8 KT)
Fleet Oiler (31.2 KT)
Minesweeper (650T)
Ocean Tug (800T)
Roll On Roll Off Ship (60 KT)
Army Container Ship (48KT)
Hospital Ship (70 KT)
Oceanic Ferries (20KT)
Semi Submersible Heavy Lift Ship (52 KT)

These vessels which are currently among the inventory of Auxiliary Support Fleet of Royal Cochin Navy are currently undergoing serial production by Cochin Shipyards and thus any additional orders from Transvaal Navy would also be speedily processed and delivered.

Yours Sincerely,

CE Francis,
Minister of Commerce,
Cochin Chamber of Commerce,
Kingdom of Cochin[/quote]

Probably most (let's say 75%) of them would ultimately choose to remain in Arctica and have their families emigrate there. The navy was one of the more liberal branches of the old Transvaler armed forces.
