Midwest Republic's naval development

From: President Natas of Midwest Republic

We can not build a naval fleet in the Great Lakes, as the St. Lawrence River will be too small for almost all of our ships to pass through. I am requesting at least a very small piece of land for the construction of a naval/air base.

The land marked in orange is where we wish to build the base on:

"The third request is completely out of the question. We will not allow such a large naval base so close to our territory. Of the first or the second, which would you prefer? You can only have one."

"The first picture. Is there a map of territorial waters? We don't want a naval base that is locked in due someone's restricted access water being located right next to the harbor."

Although it is not our decision, the Canadian Commonwelath, does not wish for a large naval base to be allowed in Hudson Hay, furthur more, most of the Hudson Straight is our territorial waters. However, we would be open to the allowing you acess to these waters.

That first suggested location for a naval base looks like it's a good distance from our territorial waters, so we're okay with this.

That would have to be worked out with the surrounding nations and is not our problem.

Again, in the first proposel, there would be a problem with our territorial waters around Newfoundland, yet again we are willing to negotiate terms of access. We are also concerned with the closeness of the first propasition to Canadian territory.

Considering it is not your territory that would be getting leased, perhaps you should worry about your own wars. Your input is not needed nor sought.

We are not picking the second location of the naval base as it would stretch our supply lines excessively as the only supply sources are located inland.

We are open to negotiations. Could you provide a map of your territorial air/water space so our aircraft and ships won't accidentally venture too close for comfort?

Our territorial waters are shown here, and the legislative council has granted your Naval vessals acces to our waters south of Newfoundland.

"Thank you. We will inform you of any naval vessels that are scheduled to pass through your waters. Our stealth vessels will stay out of your territorial waters as much as possible. All naval exercises will be publicly announced within a month's notice and conducted within a few miles around our naval base or in international waters. The same policy will also be applied to our aircraft."
----------------------------------
Publicly known via government reports:

A small fleet of cargo ships sailed toward the planned naval base location. They would construct a temporary cargo harbor to offload workers, supplies, equipments and etc. Administrative/logistical buildings would be the first ones to be built, followed by a permanent cargo harbor. The temporary harbor would be upgraded to a permanent naval harbor. After that, permanent barracks, training facilities, dry-docks, repair facilities and additional logistical buildings would be constructed. An airfield and static defensive systems would be constructed last.
---------------------------------
Classified:

An underground aircraft storage/repair facility will be built 70 meters deep. An underground vehicle/equipment and non-explosive/highly flammable supply storage facility will also be constructed just underneath it.

An underground submarine base is located deeper, just below the seafloor at 300 meters. An explosive/highly flammable supply storage facility and a thorium power plant is also located at this depth.

A layer of depleted uranium, lead and tungsten carbide are constructed just above the underground facilities' ceiling serve as anti-bunker buster missile measure and concrete-steel would be used to support the walls and ceiling. The underground facilities won't hold up against a sustained barrage of bunker buster missiles, but will last enough for at least some of the staff, aircraft and submarines to be evacuated before the facility caves-in.

Semi-classified (OOC: Can only be seen if recon vehicles/equipments/infantry are used :OOC):

The construction was stalled during the 2nd Midwest Republic Civil War, but it resumed within two to three months after the war ended. The temporary cargo harbor and administrative/logistical buildings were completed. Construction of a permanent cargo harbor and the upgrading of the temporary cargo harbor into a naval harbor begun.

Meanwhile, large amount of dirt and rocks were being dug up from several large shafts and were piled into the shallow water at the tip of the island. Erosion controls were also installed. The extra land wouldn't be used, though it would allow future expansions of the naval/air facility.

The permanent cargo harbor and the upgrading of the temporary cargo harbor into a naval harbor were finished. Permanent barracks, training facilities, dry-docks, repair facilities and additional logistical buildings were now under construction.

The underground digging would still continue.

Anti-ship/air defenses would be placed on hold until such technologies needed for them were moved from prototype to ready-to-manufacture.

Anti-air/ship/missile defenses completed:

Air detection: Fourteen 20 megawatt meta-material AESA panels
Long range AA defenses: 50 quad missile launchers
Long range AS defenses: 20 quad missile launchers
Long range anti-missiledefenses: 20 dual missile launchers
Long range general defenses: 8 large missile launch pads (underground)
Short range general defenses: 500 60mm automatic cannons

Underwater detection: Six large sonars
Anti-ship defenses: 30 torpedo launchers
Anti-torpedo defenses: 20 light torpedo launchers


All underground facilities completed.


Construction of 5 small underwater submarines bases located in the Gulf of St. Lawrence (capable of hosting up to 10 submarines per base) have been completed.

Construction of 10 small deep-underwater submarine bases located in the Atlantic Ocean on the continental slopes have been completed.

Both submarine bases have enough supplies to last for two years.
