Recommended Posts

Operation Khyber Pass was launched as the T150 Main Battle Tanks of the 8th Armored Cavalry Regiment, the Royal Wodeyar Cavalry raced from their jump points along the Punjab Balochistan borders to race into the Balochistan province that was formerly protected by Rebel Army. The 10th Infantry Regiment, the Somalian Regiment which had been deployed near Rawalpindi would also race in to secure the Kyber Pakhtunwa and FATA territories. The two battalions of the Somalian Regiment which are home garrisoned at Gosree City would also race out to secure the eastern borders of the Balochistan province. The 4th Airborne Division, the Madras Airborne would also deploy in force to secure the mountainous border regions of FATA and Khyber Pakhtunwa. The Airborne units of the 4th Airborne would be deployed at their drop points through the latest Shastac squadrons of Royal Cochin Air Force.

As these movements are occurring nearly 30,000 of the newly raised Combat infantry formations from Xinjiang would start moving towards the territories to reinforce the borders with former Rebel Army. Minutes after the first T150 Main Battloe Tanks move into the new territories the RF05 and RF06 JM4 regiments of the Royal Cochin Air Force would take to the skies from their Forward Air Bases in Gosree City to secure the airspaces of the new territories.

With the mountainous borders being secured by the 4th Airborne and the arid borders being secured by the 8th ACR, the rest of the Cochin forces would complete the Operation Khyber Pass over the next few days.

In the few hours after the start of the Operation Khyber Pass the 8th ACR had reached the borders of former Rebel Army and halted its advance. With strict orders to keep a buffer zone of 10 kms from the Rebel Army territories, the premier Armored Regiment held its ground waiting for the vast Mechanized Infantry reinforcements arriving via the Karakoram Railroad. Nearly a full Infantry Regiment's worth aka 30,000 Combat Infantry are deployed along the Balochistan-Iran borders with engineer units setting up defensive emplacements.

In the FATA and Khyber Pakhtunwa regions the 4th Airborne had secured control over all the major border passes with the units of 10th Infantry Regiment taking over the onerous duty of securing the ragged terrain. In the air nearly a hundred S-RECO reconnaissance and surveillance UAVs are already in the air performing cartographic evaluation of the new territories. With the RS03 squadron of Aspers and several other key strategic combat squadrons returning from South America the RF05 and RF06 Regiments have secured the airspace and is maintaining a continuous Air Patrol assisted by 3 Halob and 2 Merat AWACS.

"The Sovereign Initiative wants to alert the Kingdom of Cochin on a warning issued earlier, you have violated the sovereign territory of a memberstate and we demand your immediate withdrawal."
[/quote]

The Kingdom of Cochin has not violated any sovereign territory of Rebel Army. We have merely acquired Free territories that were protected by Rebel Army. These territories were never integral sovereign territory of Rebel Army. So any warning you may have issued does not hold water.

In the Kingdom of Cochin's perspective Rebel Army has fallen into anarchy. There has been a total lapse of communication from Rebel Army government for a considerable period of time. Pending a authoritative communique from Rebel Army itself the Kingdom of Cochin shall continue holding the territories acquired.

Athenian Federation should consider it more wiser not to engage in any ultimatum or threats to the Kingdom of Cochin.

While Grand Papua considers the opinion that Rebel Army is alive to be hypocrisy given how some TSI members are always quick to jump on nations that do not communicate others for some period of time, we also believe that Cochin has overstepped its usually just actions by invading an independent protectorate. We hereby call upon Cochin to return to its usually righteous path and remove itself from the territories it has attempted to acquire.

At the same time, we hope that the international community, particular the members of the TSI, uphold the spirit of the protectorate and allow new states to form without interference.

Our current actions are to secure the territory and people of this frontier of the Indian Subcontinent from the ravages and anarchy that is for all instances prevailing in Rebel Army which was protecting it so far. We have not yet declared annexing the territory as sovereign territory of the Kingdom but we shall not bow down to vain ultimatums issued either.

Like most RA Protectorates, this region was sparsely manned by RA troops; the bordering countries were not considered foes or enemies. As such, only enough forces to maintain order in the region, assist the local police and governments, and the like, were stationed in the area. On the frontier with Cochin, only a few handfuls of soldiers were present across the border, mainly to stop drug, arms, and other smugglers. Or to stop the odd border jumper or two, whether they be coming from the Protectorate or the Kingdom. They were not there to stop an invasion, in any serious attack they would be slaughtered. But nobody would invade a region that has little military value, without cause, would they?

The 5th Border Patrol would respond to the Kingdom's movements soon after they crossed the border, telling them to turn back, and that attempting to march into this territory would be considered as if Cochin was invading Rebel Army proper. They didn't bother firing warning shots... The Patrol knew if they did that, they would all die. And so they retreated, sending a warning to the top brass about a Cochinese invasion. The war had begun.

The first response would be of course to mobilize and send out an armed response. 100 000 soldiers, supported by 1500 tanks and other armored vehicles would begin to pour in from Persia; some 250 000 more troops and additional rmored units would be deployed from other locations immediately to reinforce the initial advance. More units were being mobilized, and the entire country was to be geared up for war. The first, third, fifth, sixth, and seventh Rebel Viper squadrons (all model Bs) would be sent in to secure the airspace over the Protectorate, and shoot down enemy aircraft without mercy. The Viper-Bs would be joined by two Orca B squadrons whom were to split up and divide themselves among the various fighter squadrons to give ground aerial support. It wouldn't be too much support, but it was the best that could be done on such short notice; and it was still better than what the Kingdom gave it's troops.

Unfortunately for the Cochin Navy, the bulk of the Rebel Navy was stationed in Persia and east Arabia/Babylon; primarily due to it being acknowledged as the area most vulnerable to a naval assault, besides Ecuador. Three of the five carrier battle groups stationed in this region would set to sea immediately; their mission was to secure the coasts before the Cochin Navy would react, support ground forces with their armaments and aircraft, and support the air support operations in the region of necessary. Gosree City was to be entirely cut off from the sea, and the railroad tracks leading up to it were to be blown to smithereens. Half of the Rebel submarine fleet, stationed at or near the Suez Canal, was to organize itself and deploy to the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden; to stop a possible invasion from that corridor. The other half would be put on standby, a few wolfpacks being on patrol on the other side of the Suez and the coast at any given time. The forces in Gibraltar and the SAG there would be put on high alert, and to be ready to repel foes if necessary.

In Ecuador, a region considered somewhat "safe" from the current hostiles, all troops in the area were mobilized. Half would be deployed along the coast, encase someone decided to invade from there. An eighth would be deployed into the forests and jungle, to engage in guerrilla combat and hit-and-runs encase a coastal breech was made, or someone tried to invade from the other side. The others would be dispersed along the other border regions; unlike Cochin the Rebels had no territorial ambitions, nor would they abuse the inhabitants of the protectorate of the former HAE. The two carrier groups in the area would be put to sea, mainly as a show of force and activity.

Finally, civilians would have to be appropriately mobilized. Those eligible for draft would be called upon and accordingly armed, some of the "professional" reservists would even be shipped off to the front lines. Other civilians would receive instructions on when a nuclear warning call would go out, and to be ready to hit the bunkers at any time; Rebel Army would not suffer a nuclear apocalypse for a second time, they were ready now. Additional war material and armaments would be distributed among the population, in the event that the war hit Rebel territory proper, those able were expected to fight, or retreat to regroup. Several gun-savvy citizens would illegally modify their weapons for automatic fire; they were few and the authorities would turn a blind eye to them.

[quote][center][size="4"][b]Official Rebel Army Announcement[/b][/size]

At around 14:50 GMT today, Rebel Army's Protectorate Region in Central Asia was ruthlessly invaded by forces belonging to the Kingdom of Cochin. They were aptly warned by the various border patrol units that the territory they were crossing into was protected by Rebel Army, and that an attack on this region would be considered an attack on Rebel Army itself. These units were ignored, and the forces of Cochin continued their advance. As such, Rebel Army hereby recognizes the Cochin's offensive actions and desires for combat, and thus recognizes that a state of war exists between it and the Kingdom of Cochin. Call upon all of our allies to aid us in repelling the unjust Cochinese invasion of Rebel Army.[/center][/quote]

OOC: The milita thing, that is arming the populous, is in reality just a "for flare" thing, they won't do #*$% in reality. Except those called up for draft; though those guys count towards my soldier count.

The Athenian-Rebel Army relation is one that has stood the test of time but never had the honor of being used in a military fashion. The Kingdom of Cochin's cowardly attack in a perceived moment of weakness is unacceptable, especially when it involves such a bastion of stability as the Rebel Army.

In line with Athenian obligations under the Sovereign Initiative, Athenian-Rebel Army MDoAP and a friendship exceeding two decades we hereby consider ourselves at war with the Kingdom of Cochin.[/quote]

Greater Germany stands with it's allies in Rebel Army against Cochin hooliganism and aggression. Therefore, in line with the TSI and the Greater German - Rebel Army Mutual Defense Pact, we find ourselves in a state of total war with the Kingdom of Cochin.

May God help us especially in this fight!

Reichskanzler of Greater Germany

Perhaps the declarations of war should be held off on until Cochin replies to the fact that Rebel Army is indeed alive. They have hinted that they will abandon their endeavor if Rebel Army actually tells them to back off.

They had several warnings, the time for talk is over.

"The Kingdom was warned by the Athenian Federation that Rebel Army was alive. They were warned by the border units whom were ignored. This did not come without warning; far from it, Cochin ignored these warnings. Rebel Army has always considered an attack on it's Protectorates as if Rebel Army itself was attacked. This sort of move is exactly what caused the horrific Balkan War. We will not make the same mistake twice; we will strike back at the invasion of our lands and destroy those who seek to harm us."

The United Federation of the East forcefully condemns the invasion of Rebel Army. It appears that the Kingdom of Cochin has done so despite warnings to the contrary and without attempt to verify the continued viability of the Rebel Army state. While we had our own concerns about that viability, it became clear that such information was simply incorrect. At such a time the proper course of action would have been restraint rather than pushing forward. The Kingdom of Cochin chose to do this anyway.

With this clear invasion despite warnings, the United Federation of the East considers the attack on Rebel Army to be a direct attack on the United Federation of the East per the collective defense obligations of the Sovereign Initiative. As such we consider this a aggressive action in violation of the Non-Aggression Clause of the Kingdom of Cochin-United Federation of the East Mutual Defense Treaty. Thus that treaty is hereby cancelled.

The continued Cochinese Paranoia and outright hostility, even too allies has caused it to put itself in a position where conflict is inevitable. Its arrogance and self righteousness in the face of advice to the contrary has put it on a path of conflict even with its most ardent the Sovereign Initiative. This is unfortunate but what must be done be done. The United Federation of the East stands with its allies in the Sovereign Initiative, and it requests its friends globally stand with it.


[quote]Private Dispatch to Allies.

The United Federation of the East hereby formally activates its mutual defense and aggression pacts with Slavorussia, Royaume De Lamuere, and Sweden. Were hereby also formally request our allies in Vauleyo to honor Mutual Defense and Aggression Pact with the United Federation of the East recognizing the time it will take to enter should the government of Vauleyo choose to do so.[/quote]


[quote]Private Dispatch to the Government of Selenarctos:

The United Federation of the East formally requests that the Government of Selenarctos per the UFE-Selenarctos Alliance remain neutral in our operations with our allies against the Kingdom of Cochin's Aggression.[/quote]

[quote]Military Commands:
UFE commands had been mobilized for major Western Operation in Vauleyo. This had lead to a massive reinforcing of the UFEs forces in the West, and strategic stockpiling. This included reinforcing the significant border defenses between the United Federation of the East and the Kingdom of Cochin.

All in all a total of 800, 000 had been mobilized in the West, most not in Vauleyo in well fortified border positions, and bunkers. Those in Vauleyo merely waited for the order to return South. NBC teams would rapidly distribute gear throughout the area. SAM forces were ordered on permanent mobile patrol. UFE air units were put on rotating patrol. AWACs and EWAC drones were put into the field, along with ultra high altitude look down airborne warning systems.

At stand off range B-11 bombers were put into rotating air patrols. With bases being kept spread out through Eastern China. Those planes within ballistic and cruise missile range that couldn't be redeployed to bases in the East were to be ordered secure bunker facilities.

Multiple long range missile artillery battalions were being prepped for it to begin.

Anti shipping and anti-missile forces in the Indian Ocean contingent are hereby placed on heightened alert. All naval commands are hereby placed on heightened alert for anti-submarine exercises.[/quote]

[size="4"]"While we do not fully support all reasons from which Rebel Army was invaded, we see them as primarily a quiet government that is not very helpful to the inhabitants of the land. While the government of Rebel Army is not doing good for their people, it is not doing harm either. The Federation of Arctic Regions seeks a quick end to this conflict with White Peace, or mild Surrender Terms to the Kingdom of Cochin. The Kingdom of Cochin was extremely friendly to the Federation when we were just learning to stand on our own two feet. We will return the kindness in this time. If any request for disbandment or surrender terms that are deemed as 'too heavy' by Federation government officials, then The Federation of Arctic Regions will take matters in to its own hands. We may lose the conflict but this was a mild mistake made by the Cochin government in hopes of good for the people of Middle-Eastern Asia. This act of improvement for human lives is not one to be looked down upon. The Kingdom of Cochin only wished to make the inhabitants of the land to have a better life than the current government who is not doing much good for the people. Therefore, after the conflict shall take a peaceful end, The Federation of Arctic Regions will assist The Kingdom of Cochin with rebuilding efforts may it be financially or even if we have to send workers over to assist, foreign aid will surely be sent."

With the possibility of war with the Kingdom of Cochin seeming imminent the 21st Army based in Nizhny Novgorod and the 2nd Guards Tank Army in Kirov were called to duty. Mobilization of over 100,000 soldiers and 10,000 armored vehicles including; T-100 and T-90 tanks, APC’s, IFV’s, anti-aircraft, rocket and self-propelled artillery and mobile ballistic missile launch systems. In addition more than 1,000 aircraft including fighters, bombers, AWACs and gunships could be fueled and ready to attack with short notice. Every effort was taken to protect the homeland from counterattack. Slavorussian counterintelligence and cyberwarfare defenses intensify up their efforts.

[quote]Classified to the UFE and Germany

To honor our MDoAP with the United Federation of the east the General Staff is mobilizing the 21st Mechanized Army and the 2nd Guards Tank Army. We formally request permission from Germany to move our forces to Karagandy as a staging point to invade the Kingdom of Cochin's East Kazakhstan territory and to use its airspace to launch air missions over Cochin airspace.

The Kingdom of Cochin was unaware of any activity emanating from the Free territories in Balochistan, FATA and Khyber Pakhtunwa and no Rebel Army units attempted to make any contact with us, which if it had occurred would have led us to cease from this operation. We have never bore any ill will towards Rebel Army and this incident seems a result of miscommunication between the two parties. If Rebel Army is indeed alive and active, as is apparent from the recent communique then we are willing to withdraw to the prior borders. Is Rebel Army willing to go back to the status quo?

Is this seriously an excuse you're trying to push when caught?

Since when exactly is it incumbent upon the Rebel Army to attempt to make contact with the Kingdom of Cochin's Armed Forces [i]regarding the status of Rebel Army Territory[/i]. If my neighbor is minding his own business watching TV and I don't see him, does it then make sense to burst into his house with an assault rifle? No of course not. If you become concerned you call their phone.

This is the national equivalent of that behavior. Its insulting to the intelligence of the entire world to pretend what you did was anything other than an opportunistic land grab. Further you were warned that it was, and you chose to ignore it hoping to press your luck on further territorial expansionism. Now that it came back and bit you in the ass which we warned you it would, the Athenians warned you it would, you try to pretend like it is incumbent on the Rebel Army to make contact with you regarding the status of their own territory. I think the Kingdom of Cochin needs to take a remedial course on choosing language instead of pushing its arrogance and its presumed self-superiority on the rest of the world. I would also point out this is not the first time it has used language of an imperial nature to attempt to command Rebel Army in what to do with its own territory.

The declaration of war from Athenian Federation and Germany was expected but that from the United Federation of the East was an unfortunate surprise. The Royal Cochin Defense Forces had however prepared for eventualities precisely like these. The 5th Armored Corps was already in position along UFE borders in Xinjiang and the numerous Shock Army Divisions concentrated in Kazakhstan is ready to face any attack from Germany. The entire combat strength of RCDF is now being elevated to DEFCON ONE alertness and additional Air Force reinforcements are mobilizing towards Punjab. As soon as the news of activity from Rebel Army had come out, Chief of Army Staff had ordered the 8th ACR, 10th IR and 4th AD to retreat a further 100 kms as part of full retreat, but if Rebel Army is insistent on warfare over the miscommunication, these forces would be fighting their way out in defense of Gosree which is a natural prime target for the Rebel Army.

Royal Cochin Navy has deployed two Aircraft Carriers in Atlantic Ocean, 3 in Arabian Sea and 2 in Bay of Bengal to defend against a maritime attack on sovereign Cochin territories. Mobilization orders have been sent out to all the reserve units and the Ministry of Interior has started sending out theater alert warnings. All citizens of the Kingdom are now instructed to be not more than 50 kms away from their assigned Nuclear Shelter Bunkers. With a multi front warfare in the offing full alert has been sounded for all the Border Guard Brigades and all the Combat Divisions of Royal Cochin Army are ready for wartime mobilizations and reinforcements. The National Defense Reserves are opened up and the mountainous Reserve Divisional Stores hidden and scattered all over the Kingdom are now receiving the thousands of reservists who would be manning the reserve divisions.

Ministry of External Affairs is meanwhile doing its best to solve this issue.

Greetings,

You may know about the recent issue resulting from a miscommunication between Kingdom of Cochin and Rebel Army. An unfortunate incident resulting from a simple miscommunication is being twisted into a cause of war by the Kingdom's enemies. If despite our willing to restore the status quo, these forces attempt to attack the Kingdom of Cochin, we hope we can depend on the Serene Republic of Vaule to help us defeat the aggressors.

We never invaded sovereign territory of Rebel Army but we only invaded Free Territories that were protected by Rebel Army when for all perceptions Rebel Army ceased to exist. If we were aware of Rebel Army's continued existence we would not have worried for the safety of the people of the region. As we said if Rebel Army forces had indeed made their presence felt and communicated with us, this accident would not have occurred. Secondly we do not recognize that Athenian Federation has the authority to speak for Rebel Army, to us only Rebel Army has the right to speak for itself.

As we said, we are ready to return to the status quo.
