Recommended Posts

In a fairly short amount of time, the Republic of Noveria had made some progress in solidifying its international position on the world stage by reaching out to several specific nations. It had normalized its relationship with Austria through the signing of an Economic and Trading treaty. It was in the process of working together with the Kingdom of Cochin in enhancing its cyber security capabilities. Now, the Directorate of Defense was contemplating reaching out to yet another nation: the Cajun Federation.

After discussions with other Directors and members of the Noveria Development Council, Hiram Sinclair, Defense Minister, composed and dispatched a transmission to the Cajun Government through secure diplomatic channels:

[quote][b]TO:[/b] Whom it may concern
[b]FROM:[/b] Hiram Sinclair, Director of Defense
[b]SUBJECT:[/b] National defense

Greetings,

The Directorate of Defense of the Republic of Noveria would like to set up a meeting with the Cajun Federation to discuss specific aspects, namely relating to national defense. To elaborate further, we are interested in enhancing aerial defense capabilities of the Republic of Noveria, as well other related matters, and feel it to be prudent to contact you regarding this. If you wish to meet with us, we can arrange a meeting to be held in the capital of Nadrink, or if you wish, we can meet in the Cajun Federation in a city of your choosing.

Let us know if interested.

Regards,
Hiram Sinclair,
Directorate of Defense[/quote]

The telegram from the Cajun Federation arrived at the desk of newly-appointed Director of Defense, Daniele Favalaro, who had replaced Hiram Sinclair in the position. Upon reading it, the new Director wrote out a reply:

[quote][b]TO:[/b] Jean-Louis Montcalm, Interim Federation Minister of Defense
[b]FROM:[/b] Daniele Favalaro, Director of Defense
[b]SUBJECT:[/b] RE: Re: National defense

Greetings,

Firstly, I would like to notify you that there have been changes in the Cabinet in the Noverian Government. To introduce myself, my name is Daniele Favalaro and I have replaced Mr. Hiram Sinclair in the position of the Director of Defense by the appointment of Prime Minister Pasquale Bianchi with the support of President J. Thomas Christopher.

With that aside, I will make proper arrangements to receive you upon your arrival in the Capital of Nadrink, and to transport you at the Pentagono, which will serve as our meeting place. I share your same hopes for a renewed partnership between our nations.

With regards,
Daniele Favalaro,
Director of Defense[/quote]

When Jean-Louis Montcalm (and his/her delegation, if he/she brought any) arrived, high-ranking officials from the Directorate of Defense, and honor guards of the Noveria Republican Guard, would be waiting at the airfield. Montcalm would be transported under guard in a spacious, and armored, SUV to the Pentagono building.

Upon arrival, Montecalm would be escorted into the building, to the Press Conference Room, where Director Favalaro sat waiting. Standing up, Favalaro strode over to Montecalm with a friendly smile and held out his hand for Montecalm to shake.

"Welcome to the Republic of Noveria. Anything else to drink before we proceed?" He inquired as he gestured at the chairs where Montecalm could take a seat, being brief and to the point.

Montcalm was a man of rather tall stature, and a prominent member of the Cajun government, before serving as the now-confirmed Minister of Defense, he had served as the Military Affairs Adviser to Henri Broussard. He was inwardly pleased by the formal reception he got at airport, only bringing an aide and a plain-clothed member of the Federation's elite Group 62 with him as a bodyguard. Upon arriving at the Pentagono, he kept an enigmatic expression before greeting Favalaro in the conference room with a smile and returning his handshake.

"Thank you for your reception, Director, it is a pleasure to be here, and yes please, a small glass of whiskey would do wonders right now, if you could procure it," responded Montcalm, with a grin, as he shook Favalaro's hand. He then proceeded to sit down and make himself comfortable at the table.

Favalaro nodded as he gestured for an aide to get Mr. Montcalm a small glass of whiskey. Leveling a steady gaze at his Cajun counterpart, Favalaro began:

"As you are perfectly aware of, we have come to meet to discuss aspects regarding aerial defense. The situations around the world, especially with the advent of fifth-generation warfare, have necessitated the necessary development of means of defense against them, most especially aerial defense.

Although we do not know the exact details, we are perfectly aware that other nations around the world have developed - indeed, are developing - aircrafts and ICBMs in increasingly advanced capabilities and with such power that they would place a nation at an immediate disadvantage in times of war, especially when its capabilities for domestic defense, and the capability to protect its people and industries, would be compromised. You see what happened to Germany during the Second World War, and to speak frankly, we do not wish for the same to happen to Noveria in times of war.

As such, we would like your assistance and support to construct an effective aerial defense system, one that would serve as an effective shield against outside attack. Can you help?"

Montcalm nodded his thanks to the aide who delivered the small glass of whiskey, as he listened to his counterpart's words.

"It is very true, air power is ongoing as a serious threat to any nation's ability to defend itself, while aircraft cannot always win the day, they can easily make ground campaigns much more easier and effective for those attacking," said Montcalm, calmly leaning back in his chair as he slowly swirled his small glass of whiskey around, considering his next words.

"The Cajun Federation has recently developed its own capabilities for aerial defense, utilizing a flexible mix of fixed and mobile detection and defensive systems. Any air defense that is expected to stand up to the best of the best these days requires a robust deployment of such forces. We wholeheartedly realized that our defenses were rather... [i]inadequate[/i] when we played our diplomatic brinkmanship with the Holy American Empire over Cuba," said Montcalm, taking a small sip of his whiskey before continuing.

"The Cajun Federation relies on a method that we like to call 'strategic survivability', the ability to take the first hit, and keep on fighting despite a massive first strike," nodded Montcalm. "We would be willing to assist you in this endeavor, of course there would be some [i]terms[/i] for this assistance; that being said, what is the help you are looking for? Assistance with early warning systems? Anti-aircraft defense platforms? Anti-aircraft command networks? First strike survivability strategies? Or just an entire overhaul of your air defense network?"

Favalaro nodded as he listened to Montcalm's words. He knew that there had to be terms in there somewhere, such was business. He had to find out what these terms were.

"Well, the air defense system we have in place had been built in the times of the Kingdom of Viniland, but I feel that it hasn't been...adequate enough. I would like assistance regarding early warning systems, anti-aircraft defense platforms, and first-strike survivability strategies." Favalaro clarified. "If possible, perhaps your experts could perform some evaluation of our systems to determine which areas would need improvement?

"So, what would be the terms for your assistance?" He inquired as he ordered a glass of whiskey from one of the aides.

OOC: The player who rped Viniland had an air defense system in place, but I don't know the details of it, and I dont think the others who had rped in my lands before (like HHAYD and Sal Paradise) rped any aerial defense networks.

"We can certainly establish some sort of evaluation team to look over your current defenses before making some suggestions for improvements," nodded Montcalm, as he sipped his glass of whiskey.

"Our terms for our services are that any technology or programs that we share with Noveria is not proliferated to other states without our consultation, this is for both our defense and prestige. We would not like any copycat systems being developed off of our own software which took a very substantial investment and work. We have a number of specialized systems built just for national aerial defense, as well as an entire strategy that is also kept under wraps, we would [i]both[/i] do well to avoid these strategies or the technology associated with them to stay secret," said Montcalm, relaxing back in his chair.

Favalaro nodded. "I understand the principle of confidentiality perfectly. In fact, this is the basis the Noverian Republic is built upon. Do not worry, your technology and programs, as well relevant information, shall be kept a secret." The Director said as he sipped his glass of whiskey.

"And of course, any of our technology and programs associated with our existing air defense systems, of which your evaluation teams will be examining, shall be kept confidential also. So, do we have an agreement?" He inquired, smiling.

"We have an accord, we can certainly agree to keep information on existing systems secret so long as are own are guaranteed," nodded Montcalm, considering his final answer. He then continued, "I can arrange for an evaluation team to be here within the next forty-eight hours, if you'd like."

"That would be wonderful, the sooner, the better. Your evaluation team will be received when they arrive in Noveria." Favalaro said as he drained his glass. "We will dispatch a team of experts and engineers from the Directorate of Defense and its associated sub-agencies to work together with your team, and to note down any suggestions your team may make."

"Excellent," nodded Montcalm, finishing off his own glass of whiskey himself, before picking up his phone. He sent out a small message on it, and turned his attention back to Favalario, "Was your government intending to get more assistance than just aerial defenses?"

[hr]

Montcalm's message had turned some heads at the Foreign Ministry back in the Cajun Federation, but nonetheless, a number of key military personnel from the Air Forces' defense command were ordered to be sent on the evaluation. A team of technicians from Delta AeroSpace and General Aviation, as well as Raytheon Acadia were dispatched with the military team to Barksdale Air Force Base in Northern Louisiana. They would depart for Nadrink as soon as humanly possible, the team would be briefed in-flight on the modified 747 on what their business would be.

Favalaro shook his head. "No, only aerial defenses. But, if needed, that can form the basis for any further discussions and cooperations on related topics between our nations in the near-future."

---

The Cajun team of technicians, upon their arrival`in Nadrink, would be greeted with officials from the Directorate of the Air Force, specifically the Air Force High Command and the National Council of the Air Force along with other relevant agencies, experts from defense contractor Tulio & Armando and the Noveria Development Corporation, and the honor guard of the Noveria Republican Guard. From there, these officials would promptly get to work on providing assistance and support for the Cajun evaluation team.

Montcalm nodded, "Very well, I believe that this partnership is the blooming of a new relationship between our new nations. I would like to be a part of the evaluation team when it arrives, and I will compile their findings, and present them to you, if you would like."

---

Upon their arrival in Nadrink, the Cajun Federation Evaluation Team, which had taken on the name 'Military Assistance Command - Noveria' or 'MAC-N', would present their counterparts in the Noverian Contingent with a list of items that they would want to evaluate. Included in this list would be air/missile defense weaponry, both missiles and artillery, radar, early warning systems, air bases and their premises, air defense network hubs, and overall air defense strategy. The evaluation would only request to see small amounts of these sites and capabilities, so as to maintain the classified nature of these defenses.

They would be joined by Montcalm as soon as he was done with his meeting with Favalario, who flashed a message to the Council of Ministers in the Federation, to ensure they were well appraised of the situation.

Favalaro nodded in turn. "That would be fine. I look forward to cooperating with you in this project."

---

Noverian officials read the list that the MAC-N team gave them, and after that, gave their consent. Air Force High Command officials and experts agreed to show the Cajun team the locations of the missile and artillery emplacements, early warning system hubs, AFBs, and air defense network hubs inside and around Nadrink, and they did that. Tulio & Armando in turn would show the MAC-N team air/missile defense weaponry, even offering to demonstrate how they worked in practice. Finally, the National Council of the Air Force officials gave classified copies of air defense strategy and doctrine to Montcalm himself.

As per the request, the scope of the sites and capabilities would be restricted to Nadrink itself, but the MAC-N would get some idea of the overall air defense network system that were arrayed across the vast Noverian hinterlands, and how it worked in concept and practice.

After about a week of evaluation, visiting various sites around Nadrink, and consultation amongst the MAC-N group, Montcalm and his team had hammered out a memo of what would be needed to upgrade and bring Noveria's aerial defense up to par. Upon finishing this memo, Montcalm would request a new audience with Favalario, to go over MAC-N's findings.

Favalaro was working at his desk, typing away at his laptop while talking on his phone when an aide entered his room and informed him that Montcalm requested to meet with him. It was about the evaluation results from MAC-N group.

"Send Mr. Montcalm in." Favalaro said, and the aide nodded before leaving the room, to return in a bit with Montcalm at her side.

Favalaro smiled warmly and stood up, extending his hand. "Pleasure to meet with you again, sir." He said as he shook hands before sitting back down once again. "So, let's go over MAC-N's evaluations." He nodded for Montcalm to begin.

Montcalm smiled professionally as he was ushered into Favalaro's office, shaking hands before taking the offered seat. He had a closed mug of coffee with him, which he sipped before setting it down and opened up his briefcase and took out a few manila envelopes. The envelopes contained the old strategies that were presented to him by the Noverian assistants, as well as a new set of recommendations in another envelope.

"We managed to hammer out a report for you before we set up this meeting, I will, however, go over the just of our report with you verbally," nodded Montcalm, as he took out a small clipboard.

"First off, my team and I send our regards, and thank you for allowing us to view this confidential material for our evaluation. We know that you are putting a lot of trust in us by doing this, and we feel that such an action is truly admirable," said Montcalm, taking a sip of his coffee, before continuing.

"Now then, our evaluation team has found and suggested a strong plan of action that will assist you in strengthening your countries' ability to defend and protect itself," said Montcalm, leaning back in his chair, relaxed. "Our evaluators suggest that the Noverian Nation take upon itself to set up a strategy that we term 'Strategic Survivability', as I spoke about in our first meeting. This is the means to survive a large and coordinated first strike, while being able to preserve forces to be able to last for longer periods of time. Getting in a first aerial strike these days is a decisive factor in winning a war, and taking steps to lessen the blow pays big dividends in the long run.

That being said, it is our advice, that you build or improve structures that house aircraft, aerial defense command centers, and aerial defenses themselves. This means digging underground and camouflage against both infrared and heat-seeking missiles, as well as keeping these structures secret from all but a select amount of military staff who work on these facilities. Being able to move aircraft, personnel, fuel, and munitions underground or storing at least a portion of them there keeps a reserve that can be called upon. While this means that you have fewer planes and equipment available to counter a first strike, it also means that you have equipment to keep fighting with.

The whole idea behind our strategy here is to win the war of attrition by putting to use fixed and mobile defenses, combined with small groups of interceptors, which puts increasing pressure on attacking forces. These forces are all aided by advanced warning platforms, using radars like active scan arrays, low-frequency radars, high-resolution infrared and motion cameras, as well as airborne platforms like AWACS and even combat air patrols, to give advanced notice of an inbound attack. Fixed and mobile surface-to-air defenses are then used in conjunction with your own interceptor aircraft to engage targets as they become available. This requires a large amount of coordination and the systems and networks to perform these duties with. Part of the strategic survivability method is to compartmentalize regional air defense networks, so much so that even a single surface-to-air missile launcher can perform independently.

We have accepted the fact that airborne forces will get through, but over time, those forces will be whittled down by constant attrition. This strategy is built on strategic depth, not on putting your eggs in one basket and hoping to stop a first strike. It means leaving some air defenses offline during initial strikes, letting hits take place, and activating them later, so they are not wiped out by an initial strike. We also recommend the replacement of many of your systems, such as heavy anti-aircraft guns, above the caliber of forty millimeter, be decommissioned, and replaced with missile platforms. Non quick-firing guns are essentially useless in this day and age, resources and manpower are better off spent on surface-to-air missile and quick-firing cannons as a last line of defense."

Montcalm looked at his counterpart, as he curtly presented the list for Favalaro, taking intermittent coffee sips, as he spoke in a calm and professional manner.

As Favalaro listened intently at his counterpart's verbal report, one thing was running through his mind: he wished there was someone like Montcalm working for the Noverian government.

As he received the list from Montcalm and scanned over it, Favalaro spoke, a hint of admiration in his voice, "The Directorate of Defense, particularly the National Council of the Air Force, will adopt your recommendations, and will be prepared to modify its strategy and doctrine. This will go a long way in improving and strengthening Noveria's aerial defense systems.

As for the first part, regarding improvement in aerial bases and installations, especially the underground part, we will require your assistance in going about this specifically. As Noveria has hundreds of aerial bases, of which some are rather outdated in design and nature, the construction of underground...sectors will take considerable time and resources, but it can be done.

Next, as there are hundreds of RADAR bases, we will implement your suggestion on utilizing advanced warning platforms, high-profile surveillance technology, and AWACs. As our precedessor, Ursalia, had purchased military aircrafts from the United Federation of the East, I am sure that the technology to be employed in the planned upgrades to our system can be calibrated with the aircrafts. Your suggestion of compartmentalizing regional air defense system are excellent, and in fact will greatly boost the functionality and effectiveness of the defense system. This eliminates the obligation of having to wait for orders from above, especially when enemy aircrafts are right above Noveria's airspace, heh."

Favalaro chuckled a little.

"This will definitely be implemented, and the National Council of the Air Force will take steps to do so. As for the replacement of the majority of our fixed systems, this will be a bitter pill for some in the Directorate of Defense to swallow, but this can be done. We will retain all anti-aircraft guns below the caliber of forty millimeter and take steps to further improve them. We can replace the heavy anti-aircraft guns with missile platforms, given a considerable stockpile of missiles we currently have."

Favalaro looked at Montcalm. "You have a point on the strategic depth of the strategic survivability doctrine. It would be hopeless to prevent every one of the enemy's aircraft from penetrating our airspace. In times of war, Noveria will focus not on preventing a massive, coordinated first strike from hostile foreign nations (although it would do its best to mitigate that even a bit), but on surviving one." It was at that that Favalaro seemed to realize something. "This is similiar to a boxing match, where one boxer remains on the defensive, absorbing blows after blows before delivering a blow of his own that would send the exhausted other boxer reeling back. The 'defending' boxer would last longer than the 'attacking' boxer because he conserved his energy for the right time."

The Director cleared his throat before continuing.

"We cannot thank you enough." He said with a smile. "Because of your assistance and support, Noveria will be able to withstand foreign attack more efficiently in the future. You have our everlasting gratitude for this, and we will repay the favor someday, so to say." He nodded. "In due time, Noveria will undertake a vast project, with your assistance, to strengthen its aerial defense system, of which indeterminable time, resources, equipment, and personnel will be involved, based on your report."

"Excellent," nodded Montcalm, as he listened to Favalaro's response to what was seemingly an exhaustive list of improvements that could be undertaken to help Noveria better survive an all-out attack.

"We would be happy to have technicians and engineers work with your own to help develop these ideas into reality. That being said, I believe that such cooperation as this may warrant the beginning of a new diplomatic relationship between our two countries?" noted Montcalm, as he sipped his coffee mug, looking at Favalaro.

"I believe the same, sir." Favalaro smiled as he nodded. "Perhaps over time, our newfound cooperation may lay out the basis for increased relations in the future. And that would be wonderful, our experts and engineers will be happy to work with yours. So, shall we begin, then?"

"I would be glad to summon a team from the Federation, including officials from our Air Forces' Engineering Units, as well as individuals with the Air Forces' National Aerial Defense Command. As we also work closely with Delta Aerospace, as well as Raytheon Louisiana, and other corporate entities, we would also be able to summon them as well," nodded Montcalm, taking a sip of water from a glass beside him.

"I would also like to take the opportunity to bring to Noveria, the honorable Maxime Lafayette, the Foreign Minister of the Cajun Federation, for some more [i]official[/i] cooperative talks, if that would also be befitting of this new arrangement?"

Favalaro looked slightly surprised, as if he didn't expect that. "It would be befitting of this." He said with a smile. "It would be a high honor to meet with the esteemed Maxime Lafayette. I will contact Director of Foreign Affairs, Nadilso Amorim, and arrange a meeting between him and your Foreign Minister. Would that be good, sir?"

===

When the green light would be given, experts and engineers from the Air Force High Command, National Council of the Air Force, Tulio & Armando, and even the Army Corps of Engineers would proceed to work together with their Cajun friends in undertaking what was to become a vast project. The Noverians suggested to the Cajuns the codename, OMEGA, for the entire project.

Firstly, the modified strategy and doctrine were transmitted, through secure networks, to all appropriate government agencies and organizations within the Directorate of Defense, most particularly the Directorate of the Air Force for review and perusal. They also would be sent to all military academies to prepare military cadets in the new strategy and doctrine.

Secondly, experts of the Army Corps of Engineers would be contacted with appropriate information of as to update the nation's advanced warning platforms, high-profile surveillance technology, and RADAR systems; they would be tasked with laying out the basis of compartmentalizing the nation's regional air defense system, to begin in Alta Vancavite [Vancouver Island], Nova Alasca [Alaskan Panhandle], and western Columbina [British Columbia].

At the same time, the provincial governments along with the corporations (most particularly Tulio & Armando) began to prepare funding, resources, and labor to improve existing or construct new aerial bases and installations; the Noverians would maintain constant contact with their Cajun counterparts on this part, and follow their recommendation whenever required. A thorough review of the nation's existing anti-aircraft gun network would be conducted by the Army Corps of Engineers in preparation to decommission anti-aircraft gun above the caliber of forty millimeters and to replace them with sophiscated missile defense systems.

There was a lot of work ahead of them, but the Noverians were perfectly up to the task.

Montcalm nodded, and texted a quick message to one of his aides, who would call the Federation's Foreign Ministry, and would summon Lafayette to Noveria, along with her diplomatic staff.

"That would be just fine, I would like to be present at this meeting," nodded Montcalm, smiling at Favalaro. "Expect our advisory team to arrive within the next forty-eight to seventy-two hours, they'll need to be appropriately briefed and given time to gather any needed blueprints or strategies for this project."

===

Within forty-eight hours of their summoning, engineers, both civilian, and individuals from the Cajun Air Forces' Facilities Maintenance and Construction teams were briefed and on their way north. These personnel, on board two large chartered civilian aircraft, followed by one C-225 Heavy Strategic Airlifter, as well as two C-17 Globemaster III aircraft, would accompany design and implementation engineers from electronics giant Raytheon Louisiana, and aerospace giant Delta Aerospace, as well as the designers for the aerial defense coordination software used by Cajun Federation, from Gatorware Electronics Limited. Last but not least, personnel from the Cajun Air Forces' National Defense Strategy Council (NDSC), would also be on board these flights that would make their way to Noveria.

Upon landing there, they would begin presenting standard blueprints for the largest projects first, which was mainly for airfield defense, including blue prints of standard underground hangers. These mammoth excavation projects would probably take the longest out of any, so they were presented first, and it was advised that these projects be taken on first. The main focus of the Federation's plans for this project, now dubbed 'OMEGA', was to implore on their Noverian counterparts that going underground was one of the main features of this strategy of strategic depth. The engineers of the Facilities Maintenance and Construction team, as well as advisers from the NDSC, would also share tips on strengthening runways against first strikes, using stronger building materials to given increased protection against runway cratering.

The NDSC would also provide strategies, such as incorporating municipal airports into the country's defense, which allowed for aircraft to disperse away from larger airbases in order to confuse and deceive an attacker. On board the C-225 aircraft would be examples of vehicles used to help this dispersal, including a re-armament vehicle, mobile refueling post, mobile airbase command post. An example of the LAV-AD, which was a Light Assault Vehicle mounting a 25mm Automatic Cannon, as well as short-range surface-to-air missiles, was also included in these examples, as a way to defend dispersed aircraft if they were to operate out of smaller, civilian airports.

Blueprints were also provided for the Cajun Federation's T-Box surface-to-air missile launcher (OOC: See this [url=http://forums.cybernations.net/index.php?showtopic=102776&view=findpost&p=2773951]post[/url]), as well as information on other surface-to-air missile and anti-missile systems. An example of strategy and dispersal of both fixed and mobile were presented for a selected area of Noveria, in this case, southern Vancouver Island, which was presented to the Noverians on a sophisticated 3-D Display. This allowed for the Cajun advisers of the OMEGA project to show where to place these systems, while showing the terrain patterns which prove ideal to place both fixed and mobile air defenses.

The Raytheon, Delta, and Gatorware engineers also presented examples of their own work for the Cajun Federation, including a mock computer simulation of a large first-strike attack on the Cajun Federation's aerial defenses. The computer simulations provided data on early warning systems, where they should be placed, how they should be employed, as well as how the Gatorware Software, known as FLAKCOM XL, would work in these situations. The large first-strike simulation would show the attrition rates for enemy aircraft, pitted against the attrition rate of both the Cajun Federation's air defenses and air forces' aircraft, in which the enemy was whittled down after about seventy-two hours of combat, which saw the air defenses still operating at an adequate capacity. Of course the FLAKCOM XL was designed only specifically for the Cajun Federation, but the Gatorware experts were confident that they could help Noveria design their own air defense coordination software.

Favalaro also sent a quick text message to one of his aides who would call the Directorate of Foreign Affairs. An official of the Foreign Directorate would promptly inform Nadilso Amorim of this.

"We will be expecting them by then, and I would be present at the meeting, also." Favalaro said with a smile as he stood up and presented a hand for Montcalm to shake.

===

Engineers and specialists of the Army Corp of Engineers would pore over the blueprints provided by the Cajun individuals, engineers, and designers. The Noverians noted that the excavation projects in anticipation of the construction of underground bases would take tremendous amount of time and effort, and so the Army Corps of Engineers would mobilize considerable resources and funding for this particular part of the project, along with Tulio & Armando. All heavy equipment would be employed around-the-clock, tasked with both digging the ground out and clearing it away somewhere. This part would be the main focus of the project for the time being, although other parts would be given some attention.

As for airfield defense, experts and engineers from not only the Army Corp of Engineers but also from the National Council of the Air Force would note down tips on defense against first strikes, and proceed to evaluate the airfields as a precursor for bringing in the suggested building materials. At this period of time, funding, resources, and labor being raised by provincial governments and corporations would begin to trickle in.

The strategy involving municipal airports as well the air defense vehicles would be thoroughly studied and analyzed by Noverian experts and submitted to all relevant agencies and organizations within the Directorate of Defense as to imbue their officials with knowledge and preparations to implement them. Tulio & Armando issued orders for military factories to begin production of the vehicles that were used as examples, such as the LAV-AD and short-range surface-to-air missiles. After the blueprints on the T-Box Cold Launch Missile System were analyzed in their entirety, and observing, on 3-D display, the areas selected by the Cajun advisers of where to place the system in southern Alta Vancavite (most particularly the cities of Victoria and Saanich), Tulio & Armando along with the Army Corps of Engineers would duly begin to produce the T-Box surface-to-air missile launchers and other surface-to-air missile, anti-missile systems, and early warning systems. When the systems were installed in place in Alta Vancavite, testing would commerce, under oversignt of the Cajun advisors.

The examples provided by Raytheon, Delta, and Gatorwire - along with the mock computer simulation - would be scrutinized by Tulio & Armando engineers and Army Corps of Engineers. The Noverians were evidently impressed by the display, and would apply what they learned determining locations for the fixed and mobile air defenses on basis of terrain and their patterns. One-thirds of Noveria, especially Columbina, Alta Vancavite, and Nova Alasca, were pretty mountaineous, which would serve as a serious obstacle to any invasion from the sea.

With assistance from Gatorware, the Noverians were prepared to design their own air defense coordination software.
