The Legio Munitor, construction and industrial arm of the Department of Urban Planning & Social Development, has begun to survey the beaches of Terre Regius and begin the planning stages of an anti-invasion defense system. To reduce costs, the amount of manned emplacements is to be limited, and focus is instead to be on simple concrete and metal structures that could delay enemy forces long enough for containment forces to arrive. Research is also being done on off-shore naval fortresses and SONAR nets.

With negotiations of sovereignty with the African Unity Pact nearing a positive competition, along with the completion of the Royal section of the city of Urbem Rex, His Majesty has scheduled the First King's Ball. We ask that all citizens be on their best behavior, and to not be alarmed as the Legio Vigilum steps up security in the capital. A 10:00pm curfew will be in effect until Monday.

[Classified]

The Legio Munitor has deemed that the naval forts must have both medium-range anti-ship missiles and basic anti-air guns. A combination of 40mm bofors-type weapons and [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teseo_%28missile%29"]Otomat Anti-ship missiles[/url] has been recommended, with a single 8-missile turret and minimum of 2 AA guns per fort.

Development of local industries for the production of such a missile is to begin at once. The city of [b]Al Huwariyah[/b] is to be zoned for a massive military-focus industrialization and manufacturing project. ((OOC: Along the lines of [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jubail"]Jubail[/url].))

Research into Infantry-Portable Anti-Tank equipment has led to high interest in the High-Low System. A task group has been formed to research the possibility of an armored vehicle that favors firepower and speed over armor protection. Project names have been designated.

[b]Propositum Tigris[/b]: Development of a battle-rifle caliber infantry weapon that allows the use of automatic suppressive fire with recoil-reduction technology. It is believed that the combination of a long-stroke gas piston design combined with [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blowback_%28firearms%29#Advanced_Primer_Ignition_blowback"]API Blowback[/url] may accomplish this task.

[b]Propositum Tigris Rex[/b]: Development of a squad grenadier weapon using the high-low or recoiless rifle systems. Magazine fed, semi-automatic is a requirement.

[b]Propositum Equus[/b]: Development of a light armored vehicle using the high-low system for it's primary weapon. 125mm is the requested caliber. Tests for tracks V road wheels are to begin immediately.

Propositum Equus: Caliber has been lowered to 105mm, with the role being changed to an anti-fortification/infantry support weapon. Propositum Equus will be focused down to a heavy IFV role, instead of replacing the role of MBT. Treads have been decided upon. Engineers have been experimenting with a Blow-foward semi-automatic design for a 105mm 30 Caliber gun.

Propositum Testudo: Development of NERA and active defenses for armored vehicles.

[b] Al Huwariyah[/b]: Low-cost standard-template government housing, as well as state-owned factories being built, has started to attract workers to the city. R&D facilities are already testing the various military projects, and concrete and missile production industries have projected positive outlooks based on the government's want for naval forts and anti-ship missiles.

Implementation of passive naval defenses has begun. Concrete pillars, 1m apart each and tall enough to be 2m above the water, are to be placed along all beaches at such a distance that disembarkation of soldiers at that distance would cause drowning from equipment weight. These pillars are to be 3 layers thick and coated in an anti-erosion material. Ecologists estimate little to no real issues from this construction due to the free movement of water still being allowed.

[b] Tunisia Liberation Front Broadcast[/b]

Not having much in the way of a deep infrastructure for projecting the word of the rebellion past their current local means has not deterred the leaders of the rebellion from attempting to utilize whatever means they have at their disposal. An old Hallicrafter Transceiver is put into service and mounted onto the back of an tired looking old Land Rover. The crew manning this vehicle are given orders to transmit regular bulletins to the rest of the Tunisia and the world.


[quote]"This is Tunisian Free Radio Broadcast, we wish you all happiness and peace this night. Can there be peace without freedom? Can we be free under the boots of a king? These are questions the protesters are asking as they approach the King's Ball at this VERY MOMENT. We have word via telephone that the protesters are roughly 20 strong and have not yet been stopped. TAKE TO THE STREETS! Throw down this mad king! HE IS NOT OURS AND WE ARE NOT HIS. FREE TUNISIA TODAY![/quote]

The rest of the broadcast, which lasts for about thirty minutes, runs in a similar vein. It carries messages of support for the embryonic rebellion and it beams them to the rest of Tunsia and the world.

The Royal Terran Broadcasting Company would like to apologize for the illegal broadcasts done by subversive forces. The Legio Vigilum has assured us that they will waste no time in hunting down those who spread such lies and slander.

Overview of the Hour:
His Majesty has graciously begun a reformation of the rail system. All current rail lines are to be doubled, with extensions to every Governate capital to be added if they do not currently exist. Combined with subsidies for local businesses that voluntarily join the Legio Munitor, this will lead to a new wave of prosperity across the countryside of Terre Regius.

Meanwhile, those unable to find employment at home are moving in droves to the city of [b]Al Huwariyah[/b], where His Majesty and the Legio Munitor are working diligently to create heavy industry and long term livelihoods for the commoners of Terre Regius. Long Live the King and may we forever bask in his wisdom!

Propositum Equus: Vehicle requirements have been completed, and the pre-production model is now undergoing extensive testing. Production will be delayed until Propositum Testudo has reached the production stage.

Propositum Testudo: Experimentation of different rubber compounds has led to promising results. Non-rubber alternatives are to be abandoned. [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chobham_armour"]Ceramic-composite armor[/url] is also showing promising results. Difficulty is being had with Hard-Kill active defenses, though Soft-Kill should be able to be deployed in a short time.

Propositum Tigris: Testing of the pre-production rifle model has begun.

Construction of the OTH-Radar stations at [b]Djebel Sidi Abiod[/b], and [b]Djebel Mergueb et Trok[/b] have been completed. They are code named [b]DSA-R[/b] and [b]DMT-CA[/b] respectively.

King's Decree #15: At least 75% of the energy needs of the nation of Terre Regius must be native and sustainable, with at least 80% functioning under the direct guidance of the Legio Munitor.

Overview of the Hour:
His mind always honed to the future of the nation, His Majesty has begun research into solar technology, to better utilize the deserts of Terre Regius for energy production. The majority of the power stations currently planned are to use Concentrated Solar Power, or as the Legio Munitor has put it "Solar power towers", aka a system of mirrors which focus sunlight to boiling liquids to power steam turbines. As this takes effect, the use of oil is to be switched from power plants to other uses, including plastics, automobile fuel, and export.

[Classified]
Propositum Tigris: Modifications to the design have been requested for increased survivability and reduced cost. Tigris has received extra funding and has been expanded to review the entire infantryman's role and capabilities.

[b]DSA-R[/b] and [b]DMT-CA[/b] are currently operating at full potential. The Kuriat Island OTH-station is still under construction, as well as the fortification of the island.

3 Naval Forts have begun construction at the mouth of the Gulf of Tunis, each 15 KM away from each other. Zembra has begun to be fortified, and construction of command bunkers for the brown-water forces of Terre Regius has begun.

Propositum Testudo: Soft-kill active defenses have started to show promising results to the point of being recommended for production. Hard-kill systems have also made a break through and may enter pre-production within a month depending on the results of testing. [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kanchan_armour"]Composite layering and NERA[/url] research has led towards what researchers are calling "Huwariyah Mix".

Propositum Equus: An opening amount of 100 Equus IFV's are to be revealed to the public as soon as hard-kill systems can be installed.

The installation of both heavy guns, anti-ship missiles, and SAMs on Zembra island has begun as most of the shoreline concrete has been laid. Naval radar command has set up temporary buildings on the island until their bunkers are complete.

The OTH radar station on Kuriat is complete, code named [b]KRI-B[/b]. This is the last of the [url="http://www.globalsecurity.org/wmd/world/russia/steel-yard.htm"]PICUS type[/url] OTH stations to be build.

Overview of the Hour:
Signed by Count Eustorgio Siciliano of the King's Office, Terre Regius is now a member of the African Unity Pact. Firebase Falcon is no longer a foreign threat, but a sign of protection by our African allies!

His Majesty has also announced the creation of the Department of Cultural Unity, which has been given the task of erasing all ethnic and cultural tensions in the nation. In a speech before the assembled General-Governors and department heads, King Andrea stated, "The feuds of the past must remain as such, in the past. If we want to form a cohesive nation, one which will last the tests of time, we must throw aside our differences and accept that no matter who our forefathers were, we are Terrans. It should not matter if you are Arabic, Italian, or even a foreigner from afar who has called this nation home...we must hold each others hands and scream outwards that we shall honor our ancestors by securing a better future for our OWN children. Only through such cultural unity can we truly live in peace."

The King's office has clarified that this new department is not meant to erase culture, but to instead celebrate it by ensuing that one culture does not dominate the other. The King's office has sent political officers to all Governates to ensure that the department has the resources it needs to protect and cultivate. [size=3][font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][size=4][color="#000000"]Baronessa [/color]Anisah 'Azizah Shamoun has been appointed as the head of the Department of Cultural Unity.[/size][/font][/size]

[center][size=5]King's Decree #17[/size][/center]
[center]The establishment of the [b]Promonarchia Secta[/b]; the investigative and militarized arm of the King's Office. The Promonarchia Secta holds the right to detain and punish any man or woman within the territory of Terre Regius with the exception of the Monarch and their Family. This right is to enable the Promonarchia Secta to fulfill it's duties: To investigate all men and women previously mentioned to ensure anti-monarchist behavior cannot take root, to ensure the landed nobility is in line with the ideals of meritorious and efficient rule, and finally, to ensure the Monarchy is supported in it's goals.[/center]

[center]The Territory of Terre Regius, within the currently estbalished Governates, is to be redistributed into Duchies under the King's Lease. These Duchies are to contain the lands leased to commoners, and all commoner taxes shall henceforth follow a line through the Dukes to the Governor-Generals and finally to the King's Office. All land is hereby owned by the King's Office, and is mearly leased to the landed nobles, and through them leased to the commoners.[/center]

[center]The [b]Commoner's Grant[/b] is hereby declared, in that all commoners of Terre Regius hold the right to lease shelter for as long as they pay either tax or service to the King's Office. The right to evict a commoner from their holdings is exclusive to the King's Office, and any Duke found overstepping this authority shall be punished accordingly.[/center]

[center]The Promonarchia Secta has been given the task of ensuring that this reform is undertaken alongside their investigations into Corruption and Anti-Monarchist behaviors. All noble families found to be guilty of such are to be either executed or deported, depending on the severity of the crime. Their assets will be seized and re-distributed to nobles who rank highly in Merit and Pro-Monarchist behavior.[/center]

The manpower needed would also provide a source of jobs; young people with the golden combination of average grades and high patriotism were selected exclusively for the task of monitoring and altering the computer's patterns.[/center]

[center]It was simple, if somebody's actions fit into any of the pre-set patterns, they would be pinged, and a report would be printed and sent to a human monitor. This monitor would determine threat level and pass it on to a superior if necessary. Of course, since visual and voice recognition software is far from capable enough, information would be fed from available sources: Police reports, Political Officer's reports, internet activity, and of course the plainsclothes agents of the Promonarchia Secta.[/center]

Overview of the Hour:

Since the Blood and Land Reformation was declared, the honorable Promonarchia Secta has reported a capture of over 100 nobles and their families who were secretly plotting against the King's Office and the will of Terre Regius. Their assets have been seized and given to just and honorable nobles who have rallied in support of His Majesty. Across the nation, the new landed dukes have stepped up to the challenge of ensuring the nation remains prosperous, with many of their sons and daughters volunteering for the Legio Vigilum, Legio Munitor, and Legio Altrix in droves.

In a televised speech, His Majesty addressed the concerns of the non-landed nobility, "My subjects, this is only the beginning, for what is a noble class without physical assets? If we are to have a nation where the men of gold and silver rule over the men of bronze, then we must act accordingly and recreate the landed elite. The creation of the Duchies is the start of something greater, and fully encourage those who hold the ranks of Marchese, Conte, and Barone to swear their fealty under the Duca and become landed as well. Only through the combination of the blooded hierarchy and the nationalist-monarchist force of the Promonarchia Secta will this nation raise itself above the rest of the world as a shining example of proper autocracy."

Truely enlightened words! Long live the king!

Propositum Caminus: Development has continued, results are promising in use of the "Huwariyah Mix" on a smaller scale than those of armored vehicles. Extreme-environment tests have begun on materials, with walk-in freezers being used in proxy of lack of arctic environments.

Propositum Testudo: Soft-Kill systems have been installed on the Equus IFV's. Hard kill systems are currently undergoing final testing. The combination system is to be called [b]TESMD-1[/b]

2 more Gabes-Class have been launched and are joining the other two in anti-pirate and interception wargames. Frogmen ship-assault training is to begin in full force.

The Type A forts in the Gulf of Tunis have been completed. A combination active/passive sonar net has started construction, connected to these forts and the fortified islands of Zembra and Kuriat.

Large underground parking-garage bunkers have begun to be constructed along major coastal roads, designed to house modified [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Family_of_Medium_Tactical_Vehicles"]Prime Movers[/url]. These are modified to carry 4 Otomat anti-ship missiles and to be capable of setting up to fire within 5 minutes. These bunkers are to be spaced every 50 kilometers along the coast, each carrying 10 vehicles and a magazine in the lower levels of 40 missiles. Parking lots connected to these bunkers capable of holding all 10 vehicles at once are to be built under the guise of sightseeing and beach access use. The underground driveways are to be listed as maintenance sheds.

Naval radar is to be expanded to cover the entire coast, with a pre-plotted grid in place to ensure quick firing of the missiles.

[b]All developed and developing systems are to also be reworked to be STARS compliant.[/b] However, domestic power is to still be emphasized, so STARS components are to be installed on the current Prime Mover as a variant.

Overview of the Hour:

Today the Royal Terran Broadcasting Company was put under the direct control of the Promonarchia Secta. "My subjects deserve only the truth, and as such treasonous lies must never be on our airwaves." Stated His Majesty in a brief remark on the takeover. Truer words have never been spoken, and the Promonarchia Secta has detained over 50 reporters and writers for anti-monarchy behavior. Several were caught attempting to incite violence and rioting through subliminal messages, and having confessed to their crimes, they have been sentenced to 60 years of manual labor followed by deportation.

In other news, His Majesty has announced a contest, in which Duchies have been placed into categories of economic level. Whichever Duchy has the most growth in comparison to the rest of their category by the end of this year shall be given a year of funding of their policies from the Central Bank, as well as be invited to a meeting with the King to discuss the implementation of their policies across the Duchies.

Meanwhile, [size=3][font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][size=4][color=#000000]Baronessa [/color]Anisah 'Azizah Shamoun, Head of the [/size][/font][/size][size=4]Department of Cultural U[/size][size=3][font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][size=4]nity, has begun a National Terran Pride Parade, which shall march from the Capital to every city in the nation, and then once again back to the Capital. This mobile exposition shall show off the best parts of Arabic, Berber, French, and Italian cultures, as well as example families which mix the cultures perfectly.[/size][/font][/size]

Overview of the Hour:

The [b]RATC Papilio[/b] is no longer alone! Three sister-ships, the [b]RATC [/b][b]Ichneumon[/b], the [b]RATC Monoceros[/b], and the [b]RATC Culex[/b], have been completed, identical to the Papilio in both dimension and grandeur. Two more hangers have been built on the lake of [b]Sebkhet el Sijoumi[/b]. The Culex's hanger has been built off the coast of Gabes, specially designed for being off-shore instead of on a lake.


[Classified]

3 Gabes-Class ships have been completed, bringing the total to 9. Marine forces are continuing beach training, and have also begun joint-operations with frogmen units to practice contested boarding of cargo ships.

Contruction of the anti-ship bunker system and it's naval radar is about 1/4 completed. Sonar net is nearing 1/2 coastal coverage, with fortified listening stations now starting to dot the coast of Terre Regius. [b]Zembra [/b]and [b]Kuriat[/b] fortification has been completed, as well as the installation of anti-landing pillars along the coast.

Propositum Caminus: With an appropriate resistance to small arms and large-caliber small arms being achieved, mobility tests of the armor have begun. A high-caliber SMG is also in the works.

[url="http://forums.cybernations.net/index.php?showtopic=113906"]Athenian-TR Diplomatic Meeting[/url]

Overview of the Hour:
His Majesty, Andrea I, ever looking to the future of Terre Regius, has set up a meeting with our neighbor to the north. Discussions are likely to include securing Terre Regius permanent economic rights in the Mediterranean sea, as well as bring up the issue of smuggling. Several Dukes have expressed hope that the meeting will allow them to gain closer ties with Athenian economic planners and gain pointers about how to pursue a more state-oriented economy.

In less serious news, a class of schoolchildren from the town of Qibili have put on a play called, "The King's Victory", an adorable and heartwarming rendition of the His Majesty's rise to power. The class has been given a complentary tour of the Capital for their patriotism. Long live the King!

[Classified]

[b]Propositum Lamia:[/b] Development of a multi-role Main Battle Tank, as well as the [b]TESMD-2[/b] active defense system, is to begin. Priority is to be put into firepower and armor, with mobility as a secondary concern. The "Huwariyah Mix" composite armor is to be used as well. APC capacity is required, with the capability to carry a fully equipped squad or two stretchers for medical evacuation. This should allow an IFV role to be obtained in situations where IFV's are too lightly armored.

[b]Propositum Lauandi:[/b] A native communication network and air-control system are to be developed. A native battlefield management system is being developed accordingly. Terre Regius is not to follow STARS nor STANAG policies.

[b]Propositum Vacca:[/b] Given the AUP's lack of response to Terre Regius's need for aircraft, a native air-superiority/interception fighter is to be designed. Bomber capability is unnecessary...the fighter is to be designed purely for ensuing the skies of Terre Regius belong to Terre Regius.

[url="http://www.fas.org/nuke/guide/usa/airdef/an-fps-118.htm"][b]HIRCUM[/b] Type[/url] OTH radar is to begin development. Fortified facilities are being prepared in the towns of [b]Ad Duwayrat[/b] and [b]Al Fawwar[/b].

Overview of the Hour:

Today a [b]Barbary thuja[/b] was planted in the Palace Gardens, to start a grand tradition of planting such a tree at the start of each monarch's reign. A parade we held in which the tree was transported down the streets of the capital to the gardens, escorted by the [i]1st Promonarchia Secta Volunteer Brigade[/i] and cheering crowds. The populace was allowed to tour the gardens for the day, though because of crowding the majority had to watch the planting on their televisions.

"This tree may not be much today, but give Terre Regius a thousand years, and we shall have a line of conifer along the palace! A symbol of the longevity of the royal bloodline! Long live Andrea! Long live the Monarchy!" Announced the Royal Groundskeeper, Duilio Udinesi. And we here at the Royal Terran Broadcasting Company agree, long live the King!

[Classified]
[b]Propositum Lamia:[/b] The [b]TESMD-2[/b] active defense system continues development, and shows substantial improvement over the first system. A 130mm L50 gun has been proposed as the main armament; however the APC abilities have been removed from the list. An unmanned turret and frontal engine have been added as requirements.

[b]Propositum Lauandi:[/b] STARS and STANAG documents have been copied for intelligence purposes. A native situation-awareness/command and control system continues development.

[b]Propositum Vacca:[/b] The Avro Arrow is currently being reproduced in limited numbers for testing with more modern engines and electronics for use as a high-speed interceptor.

[url="http://www.fas.org/nuke/guide/usa/airdef/an-fps-118.htm"][b]HIRCUM[/b] Type[/url] OTH radar continues development. Fortified facilities in the towns of [b]Ad Duwayrat[/b] and [b]Al Fawwar[/b], due to their simple nature as surface facilities, have been completed and await delivery of their radar arrays.

Overview of the hour:

His Majesty has announced that in order to pursue the continuation of Terre Regius's sovereignty, the nation will begin to withdraw from the African Unity Pact, and instead focus on individual treaties.
[indent=1]"We must not allow ourselves to become entangled in treaties simply for the sake of having treaties. The relationships this nation forms must be ones of reason and mutual understanding, something a Bloc of multiple nations simply cannot do. The goals of the AUP are not the goals of Terre Regius, and I see no reason why soldiers of the Legio Vigilum must fight for nations we barely know, nations we have little relation with. But let there be no mistake, if any individual nation in Africa wishes to persue a treaty, I will not turn down a proper discussion. This parting is a civil one." -Andrea I.
[/indent]
[Classified]
3 more Gabes-Class ships have been completed, bringing the total to 12. Only 3 more remain to be constructed.
Current Military Deployments have been updated.
1st Promonarchia Secta Volunteer Brigade - 1000 - Urbem Rex, Palace Duties
1st Division - 10,000 - Coastal Patrol Duties
2nd Division - 10,000 - Boarder Patrol Duties
3rd Division - 10,000 - General Police Duties
1st Promonarchia Secta Police Division - 4,000 - Special Police Duties

Contruction of the anti-ship bunker system and it's naval radar is about 3/4 completed. Sonar net now has total coastal coverage, and the fortified listening stations have been completed.

[b]Propositum Lamia:[/b] The [b]TESMD-2[/b] active defense system still continues development. The unmanned turret requirement has been shifted to future development, with the current focus now a two-man turret with an auto-loader. A semi-automatic blow-forward system has been developed for the 130mm main gun, from the similar 105mm system used on the Equus IFV. Potential crew have begun training to operate caterpillar-tracked vehicles in formation on tractors.

[b]Propositum Lauandi:[/b] With part one completed, implementation of advanced radio-connectivity and encryption technology continues. The system is to be designed in isolated pockets, so that hacking should only be able to bring individual brigades out of communication at a time. Backup systems, such as training men in communication groups in track running and driving quickly off-road for physical communication has also begun.

[b]Propositum Vacca:[/b] Testing of the updated Avro Arrow has found it to be satisfactory as a high-speed interceptor. Final development and construction of factories has begun.

[url="http://www.fas.org/nuke/guide/usa/airdef/an-fps-118.htm"][b]HIRCUM[/b] Type[/url] OTH radar has finished development and is currently under construction in the [b]Ad Duwayrat[/b] and [b]Al Fawwar[/b] facilities. These are to be oriented into Africa for more local coverage verses the coverage of the other stations into Europe and the Middle East.

Overview of the Hour:

Terre Regius has officially left the African Unity Pact. In other news, His Majesty has ordered the formation of the [i]Futurist Commission[/i], who have been tasked to form a pan-national solution to traffic, agriculture, and power. Already the commission has begun to purchase desalinization and hydroponic technology from other nations for testing. Ever forward we march, long live the King!

[Classified]
[b]Propositum Caminus[/b]: Body armor development continues, with requirements switching to the deflection or absorption of one or two direct hits. Requirements for a urban rifle have been settled upon; bullpup configuratoin and the use of the .338 Lapua Magnum round. The use of API blowback and other recoil-reduction technologies are to be investigated.

[b]Propositum Lamia[/b]: General tank development promising, testing of the hull in the Tunisians deserts should commence this week. The 130mm semi-automatic main gun and auto loader continue development and should begin physical testing in a week.
