James Price, after his deal with O'Reilly, sent a message to his people of their accomplishment. He would address the new nation in due time. He formed his government of his top leaders. He reinstated the Ministries and all their employees. He would have his Minister of Defense review all current generals to determine if they would be suitable for the new military. He would have infrastructure projects begin to bring cities to the modern era, to bring communication technologies to rural areas and connect the nation in a system of roads and trains.

**A Week Later**

Price was about to address the nation. Ireland would use the old Republic of Ireland flag as well as the Four Provinces Flag, both of which were draped behind him. He was standing at a podium in front of the Belfast City Hall.

"Ireland. This Island is our home. It is our land. And we have won it back from the foreign powers of the Isle of Man. They will not be able to oppress us, they will not be able to influence us, they will no longer be welcome here. We will become what no other Irish nation has been able to accomplish. We will modernize our nation, bring the entire island together with state-of-the-art communication and transportation infrastructure. We will build our cities up stronger, cleaner and better.

We are a nation of innovators. We are a nation of believers. We are a nation that will prosper and survive. We will not falter. We will be a nation for the Irish and a nation to which those of Irish heritage will be proud of for decades to come. We, from now to eternity, will be Ireland. This will be our home and our island.

Dia Bless Éirinn"

He stood there for a few seconds after the speech for a quick photo op for the press. He turned to leave back to the City Hall and walked back to his office.

The United States is curious to know as to why it has taken so long for the government of Ireland to get anything done? Or even make their first public statement to their people? It is almost like the government has been stagnant for months. We ask this because would wouldn't want to see the people of Ireland neglected.

The Secretary of the Interior issued a report stating work has begun on modernizing the cities of Ireland and connecting the cities with better transportation infrastructure. We have concept art of the cities shown on screen. New residences, offices and retail space would be created in the downtown areas, with newer residential neighborhoods being built just outside the city. Historical sites, the Secretary says, will remain untouched, as the cities develop. Those unemployed should see posters and application instructions at their local unemployment office.

Secretary of Defense Hillery announced the new research and development body of the Secretariat, the department of Irish Defense Research and Development. He named Arthur Ahern, a retired flag officer of the previous Irish military, as the Chairperson of the new department. He also announced the development of a satellite program to aid in natural resource, weather and communications for the nation.

The Legislature has begun debate regarding re-nationalizing the Central Bank of Ireland. The bank, after the fall of the previous government, went in to a limbo state with bills issued by the previous government. Secretary Jack Lynch has said the government will continue recognizing the currency of the previous government for the next five years, while the minting of new bills and coins will begin within the next 6 months.

In conjunction with the Secretariat of Public Security, the General Procurator has stated the government would begin the formation of a Federal Police to act as the central body of law enforcement in the nation. County Police forces will be considered autonomous from the Federal Police, even though the Federal Police will have jurisdiction over the County Police.

The Secretariat of Public Education has announced the Curriculum Commission this week. This group of 25 teachers, 25 administrators and 25 education experts from across Ireland will decide on guidelines for the new education system. The Secretariat has also announced it will begin bringing all public universities in to one system, while still maintaining governance autonomy amongst each university.

Irish unemployment took a free-fall this quarter as projects around Irish cities took hold. The cities took the initiative and began hiring architects to design new neighborhoods and buildings for the city. Cities were cleaning up their streets with better trash and recycling programs. Cities also began hiring more emergency service personnel and police officers. At the national level, the Federal Police Force is almost completed, with hiring beginning next month.

Hillery announced the Irish military will be performing military exercises in the Irish and Celtic Seas. Any ships in the area should be careful to not interrupt or be near the military exercises until they are completed. Hillery also announced the Irish military is now at full force, with over 800,000 service members being placed in to active duty from the reserves, with nearly 400,000 more still in the active reserves. The Irish Land Forces are now among the largest and becoming one of the best trained in the region. Hillery also stated the Irish military is testing a new assault rifle and artillery, which should be completed in the coming month.

Thomas Darrig has issued a report from his Secretariat stating the needs of the Public Education system and the steps needed to be taken to ensure those needs are met. They include preparing students for a college education, ensuring only the best students possible will be able to attend university and only the best instructors will be able to teach at the primary and secondary levels.

The government has officially declared the Central Bank of Ireland is now the national bank of Ireland. It will be a separate governmental entity, acting as the primary lender for the government and for foreign governments seeking loans. Provincial banks will be set up to act as a more local subsidiary to the national bank.

The Irish government has claimed the Isle of Mann an autonomous territory of Ireland. They will be allowed to rule themselves, however the Irish will provide for their defense and foreign affairs.

Military exercises were completed early last week. Hillery stated the information gained from the exercise will help prepare Ireland for new situations in the seas around Ireland. A select number of naval vessels will be heading to the Isle of Mann, to begin the protection and integration of the island in to the Irish nation.

The Department of Education has announced it will incorporate the school system of the Isle of Mann under their jurisdiction. Darrig has stated Mann will be able to continue the tradition of teaching their native language and culture to their people and be able to remain autonomous.

Labour Secretary MacEntee has announced a new study will begin to learn about the labor force. The study will request information from blue and white collar workers to determine the needs of the Irish nation in Social Security and Social Development.

With the acquisition of Scotland, Wales and England, the Federal Police expanded into every major city in each county. Violent crime in the English region had become a problem, causing the Minister of Justice to push for stricter punishments for violent crimes in the Legislator. Local Police from the area have said the rise in crime can be attributed to a group calling themselves the Jacobites. The Jacobites are a monarchist group seeking to restore the Stuarts as the rulers of the Islands. Investigators are unsure why they are committing such violent crimes. Local residents believe they're just a group of wealthy drunkards.

Cork was host to a military parade this weekend, showing off the accomplishments of the IDRD in the last year. Tanks and other Land Forces vehicles rolled down Patrick Street to the base just outside the city. Soldiers walked in formation with new body armor and personal weaponry. Dublin will get its turn next month when the Air Force chose it as the location for its air show next week. The Navy will begin exercises in the North Sea, in the area located between Norway and Ireland, next week.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs has made a full recovery, after a year of physical therapy. The Minister survived the attack made upon him by the former Britain government. Aiken's reappointment will be voted on later today. It is expected to pass. Aiken has stated it is his goal to bring Ireland out of its diplomatic isolation and to the forefront of European issues.

Naval vessels moved off the coast of Scotland, towards Norway, to begin military exercises. Aircraft carriers, destroyers, corvettes and the flagship of the Navy, the Dia-class Super Dreadnaught, would begin by mid-afternoon. Aircraft would fly overhead in formations as well. The military was testing all sorts of conditions in order to prepare the Navy for all types of combat they could face while defending Ireland.

Reports of increased weapons violence worried the Irish government. The naval flotilla in the North Sea received orders, changing their mission from exercises to one of intelligence gathering. The ships would begin watching the Norwegian coast and air space for signs of violence towards the people. Planes began flying recon missions near trade routes to determine where the weapons could have come from as well.

In England, 2500 troops and 50 tanks were put on the Kurland border in the eastern region of the Isle.

[b]Dublin - [/b]The war in Asia has sparked hundreds of thousands in Glasgow, Dublin and Manchester to protest the involvement of the developing nation. Price has defended his decision to coordinate with allies and make a stand against unnecessary aggression. The Irish National Party President, Conor Costello, made a statement earlier regarding the war in Asia:

"Ireland must stand for the Ireland. Our people, our culture, our way of living is threatened. We cannot fight wars in Asia, while watching thousands of our brothers and sisters die, and leave the rest of us to our own defense. President Price has sent hundreds of thousands of soldiers overseas on the whim of an ally. Where was the debate about this war, its merits, whether or not to send our military enmasse overseas? James Price has not only ignored his people, but his government as well. He has put the lives of our brave men and women at risk. I call upon Oireachtas, impeach and convict President James Price of treason. His reign of absolute power must end."

The Minister of Interior has ordered Federal Police to protest locations to break up the protests. There have been reports of numerous clashes where police have been overrun. Federal Police have called upon troops to enter the city to protect it from protests. In a statement defending his decision, the Minister states the need for order and civility was above the rebellious tendencies of those protesting and the military has a duty to the nation. General Valera, in a rare public response, stated it is the military's duty to protect the people whom reside in the nation, not the government of the nation.

[font="Verdana"]The first elections were held today, 2 months passed the initial date set by the interim government after independence was achieved. Opposition to the current ruling government, the Fianna Fail, included the Irish National Party, the Socialist Party and the Communist Party of Ireland. The Fianna Fail received the most seats at 47% of the Dail Eireann. The Irish National Party made up 37%, while the Socialist and Communist Party received 8% each. The Presidential election saw James Price winning against opponent Connor Costello at 45% of the vote. Costello won 38% of the vote, while Socialist candidate Douglas Hyde received 17% of the votes. Calls of vote rigging have already been said in statements from the Communist Party. Officials from the INP, Socialist Party and Fianna Fail have dismissed their claims as outrageous.

[/font][font="Times New Roman"][font="Verdana"]In response to the election, Costello spoke at an INP Rally in Downtown Dublin with tens of thousands of supports in attendance. Party Leader Michael Higgins has stated his refusal to create a coalition with the majority seat holders and encourages the other parties to not allow them to continue their rule over Ireland. Communist officials have already expressed their wish to support the Fianna Fail, giving the party a simple majority within the Dail Eireann.[/font]

President Price gave a speech today regarding the end of the Irish combat operations in the Kingdom of Cochin. He made a daring entrance on to the INS Pearse Aircraft Carrier. The President did a barrel roll in a helicopter before rappelling on to the deck of the carrier where thousands of crew-members awaited his arrival.

"Thank you all very much. Officers and sailors of the INS Pearse, my fellow Irishmen: Major combat operations in the Kingdom of Cochin have ended. In the battle of Central Asia, Ireland and our allies have prevailed.

In this battle, we have fought for the cause of liberty, and for the peace of Central Asia. Our nation and our coalition are proud of this accomplishment -- yet, it is you, the members of the Irish military, who achieved it. Your courage, your willingness to face danger for your country and for each other, made this day possible. Because of you, our nation is more secure. Because of you, the tyrant has fallen, and the Kingdom is free.

Operation Redcoat was carried out with a combination of precision and speed and boldness the enemy did not expect, and the world had not seen before. From distant bases or ships at sea, we sent planes and missiles that could destroy an enemy division, or strike a single bunker. Amphibious forces and soldiers charged to Pakistan in one of the swiftest advances of heavy arms in history. You have shown the world the skill and the might of the Irish Armed Forces.

This nation thanks all the members of our coalition who joined in a noble cause. And tonight, I have a special word for all the men and women who wear the uniform of Ireland: Ireland is grateful for a job well done.

Today, we have the greater power to free a nation by breaking a dangerous and aggressive regime. With new tactics and precision weapons, we can achieve military objectives without directing violence against civilians. No device of man can remove the tragedy from war; yet it is a great moral advance when the guilty have far more to fear from war than the innocent.

In the images of celebrating Cochinese, we have also seen the ageless appeal of human freedom. Decades of lies and intimidation could not make the Cochinese people love their oppressors or desire their own enslavement. Men and women in every culture need liberty like they need food and water and air. Everywhere that freedom arrives, humanity rejoices; and everywhere that freedom stirs, let tyrants fear.

The transition from dictatorship to democracy will take time, but it is worth every effort.

Our commitment to liberty is Irelands's tradition -- declared at our founding. We are committed to freedom in India and around the world. Where freedom takes hold, hatred gives way to hope. When freedom takes hold, men and women turn to the peaceful pursuit of a better life. Irish values and Irish interests lead in the same direction: We stand for human liberty.

Ireland upholds these principles of security and freedom in many ways -- with all the tools of diplomacy, law enforcement, intelligence, and finance. We're working with a broad coalition of nations that understand the threat and our shared responsibility to meet it. The use of force has been -- and remains -- our last resort. Yet all can know, friend and foe alike, that our nation has a mission: We will answer threats to our security, and we will defend the peace.

We are mindful, as well, that some good men and women are not making the journey home. Every name, every life is a loss to our military, to our nation, and to the loved ones who grieve. There's no homecoming for these families. Yet we pray, in God's time, their reunion will come.

Those we lost were last seen on duty. Their final act on this Earth was to fight a great evil and bring liberty to others. All of you -- all in this generation of our military -- have taken up the highest calling of history. You're defending your country, and protecting the innocent from harm. And wherever you go, you carry a message of hope -- a message that is ancient and ever new.

Thank you for serving our country and our cause. May God bless you all, and may God continue to bless Ireland."

[i]
In response, INP Party Leader Higgins spoke at a press conference the following day.[/i]

"Price speaks about fighting for liberty and democracy. He forgets he has run amok as a President, and his party has allowed him to do so with impunity for incomprehensible reasons. We have Irish values, Irish interests, but they are not world values or world interests. There were no Irish interests in the war, beyond aiding our Athenian and German allies. President Price espouses the fight for the freedom of the world. This fight needs to take hold in Ireland first, with true Irish values and true Irish interests at heart. The President has willfully chosen to make a fool of himself on the national and world stage. The Irish aided an ally, nothing more. We were not fighting for liberty, for freedom, for the Cochinese. Our fellow Irishmen did not die for an Irish cause. The families who lost sons and daughters, they deserve better. Those families will be in my heart and in my prayers tonight. God bless Ireland."

In a move to consolidate power within the Orieachtas, the Irish National Party and Socialist Party of Ireland have become a new political organization. Michael Higgins, the man who has led the Irish National Party for the last 10 years, has called the move his crowning achievement for the betterment of Ireland. The new political party, now called Páirtí Sóisialach Náisiúnta na hÉireann or PSNE for short, has named Connor Costello their party leader. Higgins and former SPI leader, Paul Murphy, have both chosen to step aside as party leaders in favor of, what they call, the future visionary of Ireland.

Costello reiterated his beliefs in an Ireland for Ireland in a speech at a Dublin rally after his appointment as Party Leader. The first PSNE rally has brought thousands of supporters to gather, as the previous INP did prior to the merger. Members of both parties embraced this new leadership and unity of ideologies by saluting the Party Leader and chanting "Do bheatha Costello!" A Fianna Fail spokesperson states the party welcomes this merging of ideologies and hopes to be able to work with this party in the future. As with past moves from the INP, the Communist Party denounced the party as the end of Irish freedom.

Early last week, Jack McKinney, an Oireachtas representative from Dublin, was considered a missing person after a storm hit in the waters south of Dublin. His yacht could not be located by the Coast Guard in the following days, and the representative is presumed dead. A special election was held yesterday, with every party trying to win the seat. Connor Costello was elected to serve the remainder of the term.

Costello held a PSNE rally after he took the oath of the office. Supporters appeared from around Dublin to hear the words of Ireland's most inspiring speaker. Police increased their presence at the rally, in what party members say is a scare tactic by the government to prevent supporters from practicing their political freedoms.

"Today is another victory for Ireland. This victory is another step forward to free Ireland from the grips of maniacs, hellbent on seeking power for themselves at the expense of the Irish people. They brought war to our citizens. They have allowed our brothers, sons, uncles, and daughters die. They have left our people without food, jobs, and a stable economy. I will work to end the ruling government. I will work to restore our economic prosperity. I will work to free Ireland from the shackles of mediocrity and despair. You have my word."

Supporters cheered and saluted Costello, who saluted them in return.

Price announced today that all troops who fought in Central Asia would receive the Irish Defense Medal for their valiant efforts. In the same speech, he welcomed the new representative from Dublin, Connor Costello. Price didn't mention the threats from Costello to end the current government and did not answer any questions from our reporters regarding the topic.

A stunning move was made in the Dail Eireann today as Costello put forth a motion of no confidence against Taoiseach Albert Reynolds. The motion passed along party lines, with a number of Fianna Fail representatives voting to oust their coalition leader. President Price gave a speech shortly after, denying Taoiseach Reynolds request to dissolve the Dail Eireann. Albert Reynolds resigned just hours after his request was denied. The Dail Eireann began the vote hours later to nominate Connor Costello as the new Taoiseach. His nomination also passed along the same lines as the motion against Taoiseach Reynolds. President Price signed off on the nomination and officially appointed Connor Costello as Taoiseach.

Costello gave a short speech to his peers after the President accepted the Dail’s nomination.

“Today is a new day for Ireland. The coalition government has listened to the will of the people. It is a victory for the Irish as we embark on the journey to revitalize the economy. It will not be an easy task. It will be rewarding, knowing we are doing what is best for the Irish people. The ideology of Irish Socialism shall ring through the ears of our citizens and based off this ideology, we shall raise above all our predecessors. This is a day for the Irish people to celebrate. This is the day Ireland is for the Irish once again.”

The explosion could be heard in the early evening. The smoke rose above the buildings in a thick blackness across the setting sun. Fire engines raced to the scene. Police sirens could be heard from miles away as all units were called to the Leinster Hall. The fire raged inside as panicking citizens were heard screaming and running from the scene. Police worked to contain the panic and directed citizens away from the building.

News outlets around the country began reporting the attack on the legislative building as soon as an hour after the incident. By 8 o'clock in the evening, the fire was out and arson investigators had located the starting point of the fire. Investigators found a charred hole in a custodian closet. Charred remains of the door were across the hall. Looking in the closet, the office could be seen behind the blown out wall.

[i]IBC Channel-1

Leinster Hall was damaged last evening in an attack investigators call an act of domestic terrorism. Police have begun investigating the attack, following a lead that at least one member of Fianna Fail had planted the bomb near the former office of Costello. Costello moved into his new office yesterday morning, after he was sworn in to the office of the Taoiseach. Earlier today, Costello spoke in front of the Leinster Hall about the attack.

"Yesterday, we saw the cowardly attack by the people who claim to be for the Irish people. They attacked the very foundation of our legislative system. They sought to terrorize the citizens of this country. They thought they could scare their "threat" away, but they only strengthened our resolve.

Ireland has been the victim of a party of revolutionaries. The revolution was won years ago thanks in part to our current President, James Price. His work and efforts will never be forgotten. He founded the Irish state in its current form, but he can no longer lead this nation with the mindset of fighting a revolution. The fighting is done. It is time to rebuild, rearm, and reinvigorate our nation. It is time to bring the glory of the Irish to this nation once again.

Fianna Fail has shown it is not ready or capable to lead a nation properly. Our unemployment has risen to 27% in the last three months. Our citizens are not able to afford the most basic needs for their families. They have fought for their own power. They seek to line their pockets with the money of our fellow citizens. Ireland, I ask of you, unite under the PSNE banner for the Irish. The PSNE shall show its people they are the ones with the ability to rule this nation. We shall bring the members of Fianna Fail who committed this act to justice. We shall bring Ireland back to being for the Irish and not for the elite. We shall make Ireland one of the most advanced nations on this planet. We shall be free from the final remnants of a bygone era, where we were known as Scots, Irish, and English. We are all Irish in this nation. We are all united as one, as a great Irish nation. We are Ireland!"

In response to the Fire, the Dail Eireann voted in majority to give the powers of the Oireachtas to the Taoiseach to fight the threats from the Fianna Fail. The Taoiseach will be able to pass laws without the need of the legislative branch. The law is due to go in to effect midnight tonight. President Price, in a surprising move, announced his support for the law to build the Irish State in to a great nation.

President James Price was found dead in his office this morning when an aide discovered his body slumped over his desk. A medical examiner determined the cause of death to be cardiac arrest. Foul play is not suspected. President Price's health conditions were well known amongst the Irish government, however no action was taken to ensure the position would not remain vacant for long. Taoiseach Costello plans to announce his proposal forthe Presidential office later today. The position and powers of the President shall remain vacant until a new person is elected.

[i]At a speech in front of Leinster Hall, later that Monday[/i]

"President James Price was a great man who fought for this country, and served this country until his death. His efforts will not be forgotten. His legacy shall live on in each of us as we work together, and united as one nation, to realize his vision of a grand and great Ireland. His vision was of a nation of innovation, education, culture, and freedom. He fought against the Manx to realize this vision. While the Manx were hardly an opponent, Price fought and garnered international support for our nation. Two of our allies, Germany and Athens, were among the first to recognize us and support us in our time of need. Because of his efforts, Ireland was able to create a foundation. A foundation upon which we stand and from which we use to push ever forward.

The office of the President first went to President Price. He held the position with dignity. He should be our first President and our last. Today, I am proposing the merger of the offices of the Taoiseach and of the President of Ireland. Ireland needs unity and solidarity for its people. We cannot afford to have an office with only nominal powers compared to the Oireachtas. The position of President is primarily ceremonial, meaning it does not truly represent the people of Ireland. By merging these offices, we will see a better representation from the people in the functions of the government. The Taoiseach's of the present and future will be able to serve Ireland with more resources and abilities than ever before.

Along with this proposal, I seek to make President James Price's birthday a national holiday. His work will not be forgotten in future generations. All children shall know the Irish fought for its independence and came to rule the Isles, as it should have been able to many years ago. It began with Price and it continues with our current government and the PSNE. Beginning today, and through the week, all flags will be flown at half-staff to honor our former President. Funeral proceedings will begin on Friday. Any citizen who wishes to attend may attend, and leader who wishes may attend his funeral as well."

After Costello made the proposal, the Dail Eireann passed the proposal, and amended the constitution. The Communist Party protested against the proposal, with each member voting against it. The old coalition government was broken, due to this fracture. The new coalition formed as many Fianna Fail members switched affiliation to the PSNE, making them the dominant party within the Dail Eireann.

Costello declared Dublin the official capital of Ireland, moving it from Belfast. Costello will take residence in Áras an Uachtaráin, also known as the House of the President. The Leinster House will remain the home of the legislature and the Four Courts building will remain the location of the Supreme Court of Ireland.

Classified: Specific details regarding infantry armor, armored vehicles and support vehicles
Public: Images, rifles, pistols and bullet calibers.

The Secretariat of Defense announced the authorization to begin exports of Irish-developed infantry military technology. Any nation seeking military equipment should contact the Irish Defense Company, Irish Aerospace Company or the Irish Naval Development Company.

[b]IDC-4 Helmet: [/b]

The helmet of the IDC-4 Advanced Infantry Armor was developed by the leading electronics corporation in Novak. The IDC-4 Helmet is attached to the Armor suit, and relies upon it for power. Inside the Helmet, are implemented various Target Initiation Systems, which includes: integrated Thermal Day and Night systems and integrated Vision Systems which allows for Target Identification at a range of up to 1km. [size="2"]

Also implemented in the helmet are various communication applications. The helmet will utilize a voice-activated screen in the helmet to access information without the soldier having to put down their weapons. Embedded in a tinted bulletproof glass mask, the display will appear to the soldier as a 15.6-inch screen. This screen can display 3D visual aids and real-time digital video, provided by a forward-positioned scout team, satellite, HD digital imaging systems, and GPS. Because each soldier is connected to a wide-area network, local commanders can easily connect to each soldier to see what he (the soldier) is seeing.

The Helmet also eliminates the need for an external microphone. The IDC-4 helmet uses sensors that measure vibrations of the jawbone. This bone-conduction technology allows soldiers to communicate with one another, and it controls the menus visible through the drop-down eyepiece.

The Helmet is equipped with a 360-degree situational awareness and sound amplification system. The sound amplification system will allow soldiers to know where that sniper or mortar round came from, but at the same cancel out the noise at a certain decibel to not cause damage to the soldier's ears. The situation-awareness technology also allows soldiers to detect other soldiers in front of them up to a kilometer away.

A computer embedded in the suit and located at the base of the soldier's lower back will be connected to a wide-area network, allowing for data transfer between soldiers and command.[/size] [size="2"]

[b]IDC-4 Armor Specifications: [/b]

The IDC-4 Advanced Infantry Armor was sent through testing in order to decide which elements to use. It was decided that the best armor solution would be to go with armor split in two halves, with liquid elements. The armor and various other garments included with the armor all contain such elements. This, in return, gives the soldier increased protection against shrapnel from explosive weaponry.[/size] [size="2"]

Implemented in the suit are advanced ballistic ceramic discs/panels. Armor is not just ceramic or titanium -- they are actually composed of advanced ceramic or titanium composite matrixes and laminates that can incorporate other materials. The ceramic composite discs/panels are approximately 2" in diameter, and their anti-materiel discs, go up to approx. 3" in diameter. The technology will stop military V0 and V50 threats at military V0 and V50 muzzle velocities, which is higher than NIJ muzzle velocities in the civilian world.[/size] [size="2"]

The Armor's most advanced ballistic hard armor, ceramic composite flexible body armor, can defeat multiple hits of 7.62x51mm AP rounds, like a Sabot Light Armor-Penetrating round, which utilizes a tungsten sabot bullet, 7.62x39mm and 5.56x45mm rounds at muzzle velocity. IDC-4 Armor's unique flexible ceramic hard armor will successfully take many more hits than conventional/standard NIJ Level IV SAPI plates, and provides coverage over a much greater surface area.[/size]

The IDC-4 discs can take hits at the edge without failing. They can also take a greater saturation of hits, i.e. more hits over a given area, than traditional ceramic or titanium hard armor plates/inserts (i.e. SAPI plates). The armor also reduces trauma to the body, due to much less back-face deformation signature (BDS). [size="2"]

The kneepads of the IDC-4 are made of a special rubbery material, and attached to the lower half of the Armor suit. The substance, which is shaped just like the human knee allows for enhanced mobility. The system is also capable of taking high impact. Soldiers are also equipped with Kevlar Gloves. These gloves allow for maximum finger dexterity and provide heat and flash detection of up to 750 F.

The Boots of the IDC-4 were designed to be of a lightweight athletic design. The boots also have traction over a wide variety of terrain and have a moisture control.

The armor system has stopped an NIJ Level IV round with only 9mm back-face deformation signature. That is just over 5/16th's of an inch BDA. The wearer can take multiple hits on the vest and keep fighting effectively.

[b]Power Supply System: [/b]

Powering the entire suit is a 2- to 15-watt micro-turbine generator fueled by a liquid hydrocarbon cartridge. The plug-in cartridge contains 8 ounces of fuel and can power the soldier's suit for up to five to seven days. Battery patches embedded in the helmet provide eight hours of back-up power.[/size] [size="2"]

[b]Cooling and heating systems: [/b]

Every IDC-4 Armor Suit is equipped with a moisture wicking base layer beneath both the upper and lower halves of the suit and boots. This keeps soldiers cool/warm, dry and light. The cooling system is especially useful in the desert or in a humid environment, while the heating system is more useful for a tundra environment. All major components are waterproof and heavy shock absorbent. The waterproof material also shields the valuable electronics located into the suit while fighting in wet areas.

The Microclimate Conditioning Subsystem, built into the life critical layer, is a network of narrow tubing that would provide 100 watts of heating or cooling to the soldier.

Currently, cooling System circulates chilled water through a special heat-transfer layer. The cooled circulating fluid pulls metabolic heat from the soldier's body and transfers it into the environment through its condenser. The main condenser unit can provide 120 W of cooling power in a 35 °C environment, with an average power consumption of 35 W and weight of 2.3 kg excluding the power source.

[b]Exohopper Exoskeleton System: [/b]

Each IDC-4 Advanced Infantry Armor suit is equipped with a strong, thin layer filled with nano-machines with the ability to mimic the action of human muscles, flexing open and shut when stimulated by the movement of the human body. These nano-machines will create lift the way muscles do and augment overall lifting ability by 35 percent. The exoskeleton attached to the lower body of the armor will provide even more strength. The overall exoskeleton will provide up to 200 percent greater lifting and load-carrying capability.[/size] [size="2"]

The system is designed so that the exoskeleton mimics the body's natural movement and is comfortable to wear/use. It will also mimic the movement of the body's joint movements, allowing the appropriate sections of the armor to move the same way as the body does.

[b]Infantry Awareness System:[/b]

The Battlefield Awareness subsystem of the uniform lies against the soldier's skin and includes sensors that monitor soldier's core body temperature, skin temperature, heart rate, body position (standing or sitting) and hydration levels. If necessary, the system can notify medics and commanders if the soldier has been wounded or has become fatigued.

The IDC SP-21 pistol is not the best looking handgun, but it is definitely a practical and business-like pistol, available in most popular calibers: 9mm Luger, .40S&W and .45ACP. It is also flexible in functioning, because of double action trigger, separated ambidextrous safety that allowed for "cocked & locked" carry, and a separate de-cocker button, located at the top of the slide, just ahead of the rear sight. Additional features are a polymer frame and accessory rail under the barrel.[/size] [size="2"]

The IDC SP-21 pistol is short, recoil operated, locked breech pistol. While the rounded shape of the slide can suggest the rotating barrel lockup, in fact the SP-21 features a tilting barrel locking. The pistol is hammer fired, with true double action trigger, ambidextrous frame-mounted safety lever, and separate slide-mounted de-cocker button (at the top of the slide). Civilian models also feature an internal key lock as an additional safety feature. While the slide itself is made of steel, the rear part with cocking serrations and fixed rear sight is made from polymer. The frame is also made from polymer. For improved accuracy and durability, the barrels on all SP-21 pistols have polygonal rifling. The front sight is dovetailed into the slide, while the rear sight is integral to the polymer slide "hump".

This weapon is intended to provide operators with improved control over accuracy and bullet dispersion, in both semi-automatic and full automatic modes, while firing hard-hitting .45 ACP ammunition. The overall design also permits the Kriss to be fired single-handedly when required by tactical situations and with adequate accuracy. To achieve those goals, the Kriss employs three basic solutions. First is to place the axis of the recoil force in line with the firing hand, thus minimizing the muzzle climbing. The second solution is probably more novel, as it uses a laterally moving weight, attached to the breechblock (bolt), to divert recoil forces to the bottom direction. The third solution is actually a part of the second system, and it employs a variable-angle track in the weight, which puts a breechblock at a mechanical disadvantage during earlier stages of recoil, thus slowing down the movement of the bolt while pressure in the barrel is still high. Because of these measures, the Kriss has significantly less muzzle climb when compared to most modern submachine guns. This results in better accuracy and better grouping of hits on target, providing operators with greater lethality during short-range and short time encounters.

The Kriss SMG is delayed blowback operated, selectively fired submachine gun. It fires from closed bolt for enhanced first-shot accuracy. The fire control group is situated above the barrel; Very light bolt is connected to the vertically sliding weight, which is located within polymer housing in front of the pistol grip; folding cocking handle is located on the left side of the gun, and does not move when gun is fired. Firing controls include ambidextrous fire mode selector switch, located about the middle of the upper receiver / trigger mechanism housing, which provides full auto fire, 2-round bursts and semi-automatic fire, and a separate ambidextrous manual safety switch, which is conveniently located just above the pistol grip; Feed is from 28-round magazines. Magazine is inserted into the housing, located in front of the pistol grip. The Kriss SMG is fitted with two Picatinny type rails, one above the receiver and another below the barrel, and two additional rails can be installed on either side of the lower receiver, providing ample mounting space for all necessary accessories, such as laser-aiming modules or tactical flashlights. The upper rail can accept a variety of sighting devices, such as open or red-dot sights; lower rail is usually fitted with vertical fore-grip. The front of the upper receiver / trigger housing above the barrel is hollow and shaped as to accept tactical flashlight; a side-folding polymer butt-stock is provided for more accurate shooting.

[b]Capacity[/b]: 30 round magazine plus 3 40mm rounds in the G/L barrel
[b]Range:[/b][/size] [size="2"]700 meters

Overall, the F88 VX3 represents the modular weapon system that combines the 6.5mm rifle/carbine component as a host platform with 40mm multi-shot grenade launcher module and multi-purpose electro-optical sighting system, which can be used to fire either rifle or G/L component, and also can provide recon data to external "consumers" such as tactical computers. The F88 VX3 system has a single trigger for both weapon components (6.5 and 40mm), and a three position (safe - rifle - G/L) safety/selector switch at the side of the pistol grip.

The most interesting part of the F88 VX3 weapon is the multi-shot Metal Storm 40mm grenade launcher, which looks like a single 40mm G/L barrel but contains three 40mm projectiles stacked one behind the another. These projectiles are launched using the electric ignition impulses, provided by the fire control module built into the butt-stock of the host rifle. Since the muzzle velocity of these projectiles is slightly more than usual for 40mm handheld G/L (95m/s instead of 75m/s), the F88 VX3 incorporates a recoil reduction buffer, that allows the Metal Storm G/L barrel to recoil against the spring, decreasing the peak recoil impulse. The top of the receiver hosts the multi-role sights of various type and make. The F88 VX3 is equipped with an ITL Viper multi-purpose rifle sights that incorporates night vision, infrared vision, zoom functions, laser range-finder and a digital compass.[/size]

The LHPMWT works by firing a high-powered beam of electromagnetic radiation in the form of high-frequency microwaves up to 300 GHz (a wavelength of ~1 mm). In exactly the same way that a microwave oven heats food, the millimeter waves excite the water and fat molecules in the body, instantly heating it, and causing intense pain and a suffering death. Such is the nature of dielectric heating that the temperature of a target will continue to rise so long as the beam is applied, at a rate dictated by the target's material and distance, along with the beam's frequency and power level set by the operator. Like all focused energy, the beam will irradiate all matter in the targeted area, including everything beyond/behind it that is not shielded, with no possible discrimination between individuals, objects or materials, although highly conductive materials such as aluminum cooking foil should reflect this radiation and could be used to make clothing that would be protective against this radiation.

Quick Kill detects incoming RPGs and anti-tank missiles with active electronically scanned array radar. Once its speed, trajectory and intercept point are computed, Quick Kill vertically soft-launches a small countermeasure missile. The system features two types of missiles: a smaller one for defense against close range weapons such as RPGs, and another, larger one to intercept longer range, faster anti-tank missiles, or shells. The countermeasure missile intercepts the incoming threat and destroys it with a focused blast warhead. All this happens within a blink of an eye. The Quick Kill missile has 360-degree capability and a reload capability, with each launcher typically containing eight to 16 missiles. Included in the Quick Kill system is a HELLADS system designed as a back up to the missiles system.[/size]

Mobile artillery support is no good if all the fighting is done by the time it's put into position. Very few artillery units can be moved into position as quickly as the Rapid Response Howitzer Unit. The biggest trade-off for this speed is markedly lighter armor. The RRHU uses a 155mm self-loading howitzer. Its fire control system was developed by an Irish defense electronics company and is run by a sophisticated AI program. This system can calculate the location of an enemy unit faster than most other targeting computers in the world. The RRHU-50 can be upgraded to carry MLRS missile pods that add greatly to its hitting power and versatility.[/size]

Artillery fire from HAU230's will wreak havoc upon personnel and can destroy a city block in seconds. The HAU230 uses a 175mm self-loading howitzer, coupled with two MLRS missile pods, to create a devastating howitzer artillery unit. Its fire control system was developed by an Irish defense electronics company and is run by a sophisticated AI program. This system can calculate the location of a target in a matter of seconds, making this one of the deadliest howitzers to come out of Novak. One of the systems advantages is the ability to switch shell types quickly on a one by one basis allowing an illumination round to be followed by a point detonation round, to be followed by an area effect round.

The IDC MV-1 is designed to provide advanced trauma life support within 1 hour to critically injured soldiers. The IDC MV-1 serves as the primary medical system within the unit of action and will have two mission modules: Evacuation and Treatment. The time-sensitive nature of treating critically injured soldiers requires an immediately responsive force health-protection system with an expedient field evacuation system. The IDC Medical Vehicle-Evacuation vehicle allows trauma specialists, maneuvering with combat forces, to be closer to the casualty's point-of-injury and is used for casualty evacuation. The IDC Medical Vehicle-Treatment vehicle enhances the ability to provide Advanced Trauma Management/Advanced Trauma Life Support treatments and procedures forward for more rapid casualty interventions and clearance of the battlefield. Both IDC Medical Vehicle mission modules are capable of conducting medical procedures and treatments using installed networked tele-medicine interfaces.[/size]

[b]Appendix 1: Hard Skin[/b]
When used in body armor, fabrics are preferred due to their lightweight compared to metals, and for their aforementioned ductility; for example, aramid fibers provide a similar level of protection to fiberglass at just 2/3 the weight, while polyethylene polymer chains offer the same level of protection for just 1/3. Perhaps the most common fabric type found in personal armor is aramid due to the existence of a large technological base, the fabric's high specific strength (five times that of steel), low elongation, high flame resistance, vibration absorption capabilities, good fatigue characteristics and ease of fabrication. The design team of `the Prospects Mark II, instead, opted for an extended chain polyethylene fabric due to its lower density and enhanced protection capabilities; furthermore, polyethylene fabrics already on the market have a tensile strength of anywhere between 3 and 4GPa. Traditionally, these fabrics perform energy absorption jobs, leaving the ceramic insert to deform and fracture the round, as mentioned before in this report, however, recent advances in nanotechnology have allowed increases in polyethylene's (and any fabric, really) hardness, without reducing its ductility and toughness. In the case of this new fabric released by Sistemas Terrestres Segovia, named Hard Skin©, the original extended chain polymer polyethylene fabric has been 'doped' with multi-walled carbon nanotubes to increase protection levels, although these increases have been found to be relatively small unfortunately (other methods of organizing the carbon nanotubes are currently being experimented with). Nevertheless, this will allow the fabric alone to increase protection from against just pistol ammunition to low-power anti-personnel rifle projectiles. The new high-strength polyethylene composite fabric is designed to provide addition resistive strength and hardness, but at the same time provide the traditional role of absorbing the majority of the kinetic energy and thereby limiting the plastic deformation of the ceramic.

[size="2"]The EL/M-2075 is a solid-state L-band conformal array radar system for use on a Boeing 707 and other aircraft. Phalcon, as the complete AEW mission suite is referred to, is intended for airborne early warning, tactical surveillance of airborne and surface targets and intelligence gathering. It also integrates the command and control capabilities needed to employ this information. The system uses six panels of phased-array elements: two on each side of the fuselage, one in an enlarged nosecone and one under the tail. Each array consists of 768 liquid-cooled, solid-state transmitting and receiving elements, each of which is weighted in phase and amplitude. These elements are driven by individual modules and every eight modules are connected to a transmit/receive group. Groups of 16 of these eight module batches are linked back to what is described as a prereceive/transmit unit, and a central six-way control is used to switch the pre-transmit/receive units of the different arrays on a time division basis. The lateral fairings measured approximately 12 × 2 m and were mounted on floating beds to prevent airframe flexing degrading the radar accuracy. Each array scans a given azimuth sector, providing a total coverage of 360°. Scanning is carried out electronically in both azimuth and elevation. Radar modes include high PRF search and full track, track-while-scan, a slow scan detection mode for hovering and low-speed helicopters (using rotor blade returns) and a low PRF ship detection mode.[/size]

[size="2"]Instead of using a rotodome, a moving radar found on some AEW&C aircraft, the Phalcon uses the Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA), an active phased array radar. This radar consists of an array transmit/receive (T/R) modules that allow a beam to be electronically steered, making a physically rotating rotodome unnecessary. AESA radars operate on a pseudorandom set of frequencies and also have very short scanning rates, which makes them difficult to detect and jam. Up to 100 targets can be tracked simultaneously to a range of 200 nmi (370 km), while at the same time, over a dozen air-to-air interception or air-to-ground attack can be guided. The radar can be mounted on the an aircraft's fuselage or on the top inside a small dome. Either position gives the radar 360 degree coverage. The phased array radar allows positions of aircraft on operator screens to be updated every 2–4 seconds, rather than every 20–40 seconds as is the case on the rotodome AWACS.[/size]

To: The Respected Head of State of the Republic of Ireland
From: Admiral Emil Kharzin of the Korian Fleet[/b]

[i]Excellency,

As you are probably already aware, our flotilla is currently making its way north to round the Arctic Circle and is passing close to Ireland. Aside from simply making contact, I would be interested to ask if the possibility of trade relations between our Fleet and your Republic could be created as a way to bring prosperity to those on land and on the water. Perhaps there is a mutual use that the Korian People and the Irish can agree on as to use our rather different societies for the betterment of trade and protection for the British Isles.

Please let me know.

Keelah se'lai,

Emil Kharzin[/i]
