Building on discussions between Dr. Henry Solo and Grand Vizier Wei Hai, we would like to propose the conduct of a military training exercise in the Caribbean Sea, while our forces are still redeploying from African Operations. Two rapid response units of 20, 000 Marines are currently en transit through the area now, and it would be a perfect time to train alongside the Caribbean Forces of the Empire of Pravus Ingruo. Further we can report a surface action group, five air superiority squadrons, two strike fighter squadrons, and three support squadrons can participate from land bases for the exercise as well. Please let us know at your earlier convenience if this is available for you. [/quote]

We would be happy to accommodate your forces for such a joint training exercise. Bases throughout Georgia and Florida will be made available for land-based fighter squadrons, and the Port of Miami and Key West can be used for naval assets. The 1st, 2nd, and 5th Fleets will take part in the naval operations on our end, along with a comparable number of fighter squadrons.

We will be extending this invitation out to our allies as well as important North American neighbors as well.[/quote]

The Imperator welcomes the participation by the Cajuns and of course our extended family in Austria. Relations have been sour with the Noverians, but perhaps this is a good point to turn things around.

UFE forces will begin immediate deployment to various bases in the region. Our fleet is estimated to be two days away by sea, though our air force and air lift should begin the near immediate arrival of most of our assets.[/quote]

The PLA units had begun deploying onto the various bases around the South East setting up command and control points around the area. Air units were rapidly transitioning in, and ground crews were setting up their position.

Mobile ground units were preparing their gear for amphibious and air drops across the estimated battle space for the exercises. Ammunition and supplies were being flown in from Fort Beihai to further reinforce these units to further increase the endurance of the incoming forces.

A dispatch was sent to the other units in the Exercise.

The 1st, 2nd and 5th Fleets, renamed the Caribbean Task Force, would be under the joint command of High Admiral Jeffrey Pinkston. They moved into the Atlantic off of Florida, awaiting the arrival of the forces from the UFE, Cajun Federation, and Noveria. Ground forces participating in the ground war games would move to Jekyll Island in Georgia. Other ground forces would fly security and guard the borders against such a large force, looking for any sneak attack.

The carrier battlegroups of the Cajun Federation would transit the Florida Straits, the large naval task force taking up the name Task Force[i]Shieldbearer[/i]. While approaching the naval task forces of the other participants, the Federation's lead attack submarines, ahead of Task Force [i]Shieldbearer[/i], would run on the surface. The naval task force had appropriate air cover from their carrier air groups, as well as land-based fighters and AWACS aircraft.

Land-based fighters of the 3rd Fighter Group would fly an increased combat air patrol east of Cuba to ensure that the naval task forces were covered from any surprise attacks. P-3D Orion maritime patrol aircraft flew unescorted patrol missions along the same axis, as well as a long range maritime patrol up the eastern seaboard. They would relay the existence or detection of any threats to appropriate aircraft in their patrol areas, coordinating with aircraft from Pravus Ingruo, as well as other nations involved in the exercises.

The Third, Fourth, and Seventh Fleets - which would be organized into Task Force Caribbean (TFC) - would steam through the Caribbean Sea to the Florida Straits, along with C-130 transport aircrafts carrying troops and personnel from the Eighth Division. The 10th through 12th Assault Squadrons, 17th through 19th Assault Squadrons, and 7th Bomber Squadron would fly to their destinations. They would utilize Cajun naval facilities in Cuba and Ingruoian facilities at Miami and Key West.

The TFC, while rendezvousing with the other participants, would maintain constant communications with the Ingruoian, Cajun, and UFE forces in the vicinity, and coordinate its forces and resources with them.
