War!

 

"Sons and Daughters of Sverige, today we bring grim tidings as once again our nation has been thrust into an armed conflict not of our choosing. Novgorod, our neighbor had issued threats and continued to violate the borders of our sphere of influence. When they rolled upon our road block with tanks, we were forced to respond with their act of aggression by opening fire on them. It is with sad news that we are already reporting casualties on the front lines.

 

But hope is not lost, we have struggled for a long time to rebuild our nation, and to defend our Nordic Brothers and Sisters, and we will triumph once more. We will drive the Russian Horde from our lands, and make them see reason, and if they so continue to press their claims and continue the war, then we will respond by driving our tank columns straight into the Winter Palace, and make this war mongering Tsar, see the error in his ways as we force him to surrender!"

 

King Karl Gustaf I

 

The announcement from the King was broadcasted on all TV channels, on radio stations, and was printed in the paper. The people hearing the message, or reading it prompted a rise in Patriotism and Nationalism within the Kingdom. It was the thing that everyone was talking about, and everyone was of the same opinion, that they wanted to see the Swedish Flag raised in victory over the Winter Palace. Soldiers that were mobilizing were cheered as their units moved through towns and cities, as the Battle Group Ragnarök was making its final preparations as it was ordered, and the last straggling units were slowly arriving to the deployment zone.

Victory

 

Victory was achieved in the war against Novgorod after valiant Sverige soldiers gave their lives defending the people of Finland. While the actual ground war was short lived, and the first line of defense was lost, with the nuclear weapon being detonated in Novgorod territory, and the war mongering Tsar being killed, the enemy nation collapsed. White peace has been mentioned between our nation and their ally in the Baltic States. However the fighting didn't stop there. Many of the Novgorod soldiers that were left and were loyal to the dead Tsar, continued to on their mission to attempt to turn Finland into a subject nation. However the Nordic Battle Group was able to stop these rebel forces and defeat them. The Nordic Battle Group would remain deployed in Finland to help protect the region for the current time period.

 

Finland Gracious

 

The people of Finland were most gracious for our defense of their people and continued protection. The leaders of their major cities, and powerful people came together in Helsinki after the end of the war to put a motion to pass to join the Kingdom of Sverige. By majority vote the council of Finnish passed the motion to be included within the Kingdom of Sverige. The leaders of the council made a trip to Stockholm after making the vote and in a small ceremony televised across Finland and Sverige, the King humbly accepted their proposal and received the title Lord Protector of Finland. 

 

While the territory of Finland now came under the domain of the Kingdom of Sverige, the slow process would begin of building the nation up from the desolation of the previous great war, as well as begin the process of creating local Government, with the regions taking up Sverige law, currency, and educational standards.

 

Denmark Straights

 

With the war coming to a close, the Dannish Straights would be reopened to all traffic to allow the return of trade and commerce to the Baltic Sea. The Kingdom of Sverige has issued a statement to individuals that were effected by the blockade to contact the Sverige Government, to receive the proper paper work to file in order to receive monetary compensation for lost wages or income over the matter. The Kingdom issues an apology over the matter, but it had no choice in the matter as it had to prevent anything that could be used by the Novgorod military to harm the citizens of Finland and kill Sverige soldiers.

Oil!

 

The Kingdom of Sverige recently bought up all the offshore oil rigs in the North Sea from the private owners that had maintained them during the last global war. They had maintained the maintenance and operation of these rigs by selling to local governments and passing ships. They had made a fortune during the war as armies passed by them on their way to the fighting. The amount paid for all these rigs is unknown, however Sverige has begun moving workers to these rigs, while the previous owners moved their people off. Training was being done by the previous owners to teach the Sverige citizens that would be working on these rigs how to operate them, maintain them, and fix things should they break. The Sverige Government would also send soldiers to these rigs to protect them from any pirates that might get any bright ideas. With the purchase of these rigs the Kingdom of Sverige has become more self reliant upon itself and less so on foreign powers.

 

Automobile Industry

 

By order of the King, the automobile industry would be brought back, under the wing of the government. His fascination with automobiles is what is driving this movement. While the nameplates of the older automobile manufacturers will be gone, he is using this to create jobs, as well as to make an attempt at offering a major export to the world at large. Since the great war had been fought and a lot was destroyed, and with the re-emerging governments around the world, it had become apparent that they had a chance to offer something that a lot of nations were lacking.

With the recent war with Novgorod and conflict with the Baltic State created a little bit of a stir within the military. Movements would be made to stir up the industry and mass production of the weapon system [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NASAMS]Thor[/url]. Units would begin to move off the assembly line to be moved to the Battle Groups as well as the Defense Forces that were placed within neighbor countries. These Weapons Systems besides being attached to Battle Groups would also be mass deployed along the coast of of Sverige and Finland towards the Baltic Sea. They would be deployed in such a manner that they would be hidden from sight and would easily be able to be used within an instant by their crews. An attempt would be made to leave no gap along the coast. The weapon systems would also be deployed along the the land border between Finland and the old Russian territory that was unclaimed with the same intentions to not leave a gap in the air defense grid.

Kalmar Union?

 

Today the King of Sverige, Karl Gustaf called forward the local leaders and powerful people from both the nations of Norway and Denmark as well as representation from Finland. The meeting would take place after the war was over and would go on for a few days as matters of Scandinavia and the Nordic people were being discussed. These matters were a pressing, as the war showed that foreign powers were aggressive and attempted to destabilize and enslave foreign nations. With the death of Sverige soldiers defending Finland there was a large rise in a national unity front from the Noridic people as well as all of the people that resided in Scandinavia.

 

There was debate from each group as to how the best way to handle everything, the Sverige Protectorate wouldn't be enough to ensure the safety of the nations, as Finland was a protectorate and it got invaded by Russians. The idea was then passed to reform the Kalmar Union, this time headed by the Sverige Government. However certain parts of the Danish and Norwegian argued that a Kalmar Union type setup would be no better than being a Protectorate, and it offered them no real protection other than the Sverige Defense Forces deployed in their respective countries.

 

As the Finnish had already joined with the Kingdom of Sverige, and the Kingdom itself positive to anything was chosen, they didn't vote on what would happen to Denmark and Norway, as they were still independent and they had the right to choose what happened to their own nations. After a day of private deliberation, the officials from Denmark and Norway by majority vote from both of them agreed to join with the Kingdom of Sverige.

 

With Denmark and Norway voting to join in with the Kingdom of Sverige, the King Karl Gustaf would hold the following titles, King of Sverige, Lord Protector of Finland, King of Denmark, and King of Norway. A small celebration in the capital of Stockholm would be held with the representatives from Denmark and Norway to celebrate the unification of the Scandinavian Nations and bringing most of the Nordic people under one banner.

Defense Budget Increase

 

With the recent military conflicts the Kingdom of Sverige decided to up its military defense budget. There were a lot of young men wanting to serve within the Sverige Military, however the defense budget hadn't allowed it. With the Budget increase another 130,000 men would be allowed to enlist in the military. This would bring the combined strength of the Sverige military up to 510,000 men. Their training would begin at once, and the talks of forming a new battle group would be put under way. The new unit when formed after the training of the new recruits would take units from the existing battle groups to make the majority of the unit to be trained soldiers, and a quarter of all the battle groups would be the freshly trained soldiers so as to keep the battle groups experienced and battled hardened.

 

Also with the Defense Budget Increase, the Military would begin to look at developing a navy. Theoretical tests would start to be placed for the main engagement zones that a Sverige navy would face, and it was decided that the Baltic and North Sea were both areas of the vast oceans that it was decided that the Sverige Navy would have to conduct operations in. The investigation of combat ships to conduct roles in both of these bodies of water would begin at once. Until a decision was made, there would be no plans of production for any type of large combat ship, however they would begin renting smaller craft for testing to patrol the coastal waters of Sverige and all of its territory.

 

The military also began to roll our production of more of its combat vehicles to fill in roles of the Battle Groups that were lacking vehicles, as well as building up a reserve arsenal to be kept in warehouses for unpredicted events that would cause them to be drawn into action. Also as part of the military weapon and vehicle production increases, the Kingdom of Sverige would be taking contracts from nations to build them weapons and or vehicles from its current in production [url=http://forums.cybernations.net/index.php?/topic/121666-cnrp2-kingdom-of-sverige-factbook/?p=3254882]Weapons Arsenal[/url]

Continued Production

 

Continued production of Sverige military equipment would be kept moving forward. The attempt was a part of the effort to have stockpiles of weapons for sale, as well as for the national defense of the Kingdom of Sverige. They would keep the factories moving at full capacity. A lot of the buyers of the weapons at current were not actual nations, but were by forces that had the coin to pay for the weapons to be transported by civilian ships to  areas of the world where no nation existed. Sverige did this on the principle and hope that these forces would be able to stabilize the region and stop the never ending flood of blood being spilt by the people of those regions. 

 

Training Completed

 

The newly enlisted soldiers would finish their training in a timely manner, and would begin to be organized into units to be deployed to existing battle groups. A quarter of each existing battle group would be broken off, to form a new battle group, while the new recruits would fill in the small gap left in the existing battle groups as well as the new one. The new battle group would be named the Fenrir Battle Group. Small units of the training regiments would be deployed to regional defense forces.

 

Naval Research

 

With continued research being conducted on the effectiveness of a navy to be able to do both roles in the Baltic Sea, as well as the North Sea, many different schools of thought were being played out from many different members from the Naval Administration. Each one knew who ever had their plans chosen would get the Naval Minister position so a lot was at stake. Some talks were being conducted for a submarine fleet, others were for a surface fleet. There was minor side talk being placed on landing craft, but at the time, there wasn't a huge need for them until an actual fleet was starting to be produced.

Armored For Battle

 

The Defense Armament has after numerous testing decided to put forth the use of Level V Dragon Skin body armor for the personal protection of every soldier in its military. The armor would be designed to cover the stomach, the back, separate pieces for the shoulders that would extenend down to the elbow, an arm guard that would extend from the elbow to the wrist, with a solid piece to cover the elbow, a groin piece that would include pieces that would extend down to above the knee to cover the front of the legs, individual pieces that would extend below the knee down to the ankle, and to complete the suit would be a solid knee piece that would cover the joint. The rear of the legs and the insides of the arms, as well as the sides of the body were left uncovered as they were the least exposed areas, as well as to cut down the cost of the suits. While they were costly, Sverige valued the costs of their sons and daughters above any monetary value.

 

The suit had undergone extensive testing, and many trials against the common rounds being fired by a majority of the nations around the world. While it wouldn't serve to protect against anti-material caliber rifles, it would stop almost all standard rifle rounds. Production would be put into top priority, and the factories tasked with getting the suits to the soldiers would be spared no expense and no end to what material they would need to get them pumped out.

 

Death From Above

 

The Sverige Military would begin conducting tests on Ballistic Missiles. They would purchase various different types from different nations and would begin to conduct various trials for missiles to serve in different roles. Also as part of this project they would also begin testing and running trials on missile barrage artillery as well as conducting testing with various naval guns for the future naval ships that were being designed as well as to serve as coastal guns to prevent ships from hostile nations that would enter Sverige waters from getting close to the shoreline.

Mjolnir

 

Testing had been completed on which ballistic missile would serve best for the Sverige Military and it was decided upon the use and production of the [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BGM-109_Tomahawk]Mjolnir[/url] which would be armed with [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BLU-97/B_Combined_Effects_Bomb]Cluster Munitions[/url]. With the production and conclusion that this was the best route to go, the coastal gun projects would be cancelled on the principle that it would be too expensive to man, maintain and build on the fact that they would become first strike priorities for any nation that decided to attack Sverige. The locations of the Mjolnir launch sites would be dotted all over the nation and would be hidden in the same principle that the Sverige air bases were. They would be hidden within forest bases in Sweden, Finland, Gotland, Denmark, and Norway. Priority would be given to the secret missile bases located around the Baltic Sea.

 

Bifrost

 

After the conclusion of numerous tests, the [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zubr_class_LCAC]Bifrost[/url] would be chosen to be built and modified for Sverige purposes of a Landing Craft. They would be modified to carry 40mm guns instead of the 30mm that the test subjects had, to standardize the munitions shared between the military. Production would begin at once to get these landing craft produced. As part of the naval project they were starting to get closer to which ships of the line would be produced for the Sverige navy based on blue print designs and actual produced ships that they were investigating.

With ground based radar picking up formations of aircraft flying over the Baltic States, Sverige would put its aircraft and their crews on high alert across the many airbases they were station in. Half the aircraft would be transported to Finnish forest bases to allow for the entire Baltic Sea as well as the Gulf of Finland to be covered by Gripen aircraft should the Baltic States cross into Sverige territory. The Fenrir Battle Group would move to Finland and begin to conduct what would be publicly told as military drills and war games being conducted to deal with terrain that was unique to Finland and allow for units to deal with having to navigate and contend with numerous lakes and swamp regions while conducting military operations.

War on the Horizon

 

With the Marxist revolution in the baltic states, and the many neighboring nations gearing up for war the Kingdom of Sverige would put all Battle Groups on high alert. The Nordic Battle Group would return from Finland to Sweden, and the Fenrir Battle Group would stay behind to shore up the defenses of Finland. The Battle Group Ragnarok would be moved to Denmark, and the Airforce would begin to fly patrols over the Baltic Sea. The French troops caught in Danzig would be supplied through transport ships to prevent encirclement by any force, and to keep them fed and supplied with other necessities.

 

Production Increased

 

With war looming on the horizon, the production of ammunition, cruise missiles, and landing craft would be increased exponentially. With the first batches completed, the next batches put into production would dwarf the previous batch. The government was also taking steps forward to put the nation on high alert and make preparations for war time rations.

Scandinavian Railway

 

With time proving that the union of the Scandinavian nations under the Sverige banner was a strong one, The Sveirge government felt it was finally time to begin construction of the Scandinavian Railway that would connect all of the territories together. Part of the this project was the repair and rebuilding of older tracks, as well as the laying of new tracks. There would be tracks designated for industry purposes, and high speed railways constructed for the transportation of people across the nation. As part of the construction of each independent railway, a secondary line would be constructed along side the main line to act as a service line, should the main railway go down. It also served a secondary role to run dedicated military trains for the transportation of troops, supplies, and equipment without fear running into delays due to the other trains being in operation.

Public Celebrations!

 

Today marked a glorious day for the Kingdom of Sverige as it signed its first treaty in many long months since it went into isolationism. It joined in a mutually binding defensive treaty with many economic perks with one of its Southern Neighbors, the Northlands. Already curious college students and other youths had begun to apply for travel visas to be some of the first to travel to a foreign nation since the nation went into Isolation Lock Down. With part of the treaty being concerning joint administration of the Kiel Canal Zone, Sverige troops would be recalled to their national territory, and a private security firm contracted by the Sverige Government employed mostly by veteran soldiers.

Nuclear Theory and Military Expansion

 

The Kingdom of Sverige made a major breakthrough with its research into atomic and nuclear science. It would apply the theories to energy, and weapons research. It would begin working on the development and construction of nuclear weapons, with the intent to use them as a deterrent for anyone that would threaten the safety and well being of the Kingdom of Sverige. This would be done with the conclusion of the construction of the Mjolnir Ballistic Missiles, and the Bifrost landing ships.

Ride of the Valkyries

 

With current operations being centered around the Baltic Sea, and the current need for a heavy transport Helicopter that could serve in the role of transport as well as a heavy air cavalry assault troop carrier was needed. After much development and research the the Kingdom of Sverige deemed the newly dubbed helicopter the [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sikorsky_CH-53E_Super_Stallion]Valkyrie[/url] after the Norse Legend of beautiful women flying down from Asgard and taking away the souls of fallen warriors that died valiantly in battle. Production would begin immediately, some would move to civilian sectors, some would be put on the market for sale and others would be pushed into Sverige military service.

Wolves Howl

 

With the introduction of a Heavy Transport Helicopter, the Sverige Military had deemed it necessary to provide an attack helicopter. After numerous tests from prototypes, and the running of blue prints in computer simulations, it was agreed upon that the new design the [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eurocopter_Tiger]Fenrir[/url] would be the best choice to support Sverige Ground forces as well as to escort the Valkyrie Heavy Transport Helicopters. Upon approval from high command, an order of 100 would be put in by the Sverige Military to be filled immediately.

 

Scandinavian Railway

 

News would be broken today that the Scandinavian Railway had finished its mainlines and were being opened for civilian traffic as the secondary lines and the military lines were due for completion in short order. The King would see off the first Train as it left on its maiden trip from Stockholm to Oslo. A new extension was being added to begin underground railways to connect Denmark with the rest of the Scandinavian Countries.

Operational Awareness

 

With the current tensions rising in Europe, all inactive parts of the Sverige Military would be called up to active duty, and all Battle Groups, as well as Regional Defense Forces would be put on alert. With the Romanian invasion of Yugoslavia, it was rather apparent that military action might reach all corners of the continent. As part of the raising of alert level, all traffic coming in and out of the Baltic that were not allied shipping would be inspected for military equipment or any illegal contraband.

With the current rise of military tensions, and conflict abroad, and war raging in the Atlantic, the Sverige Military began to take a real look at the possibility of it spilling onto the shores of Denmark and Norway. As part of the initiative, all the shore line and possibly assembly zones for landing craft would be mapped out to be set up in pre-designated killing zones for artillery batteries, missile fire, and air support.

 

News of the Queen

 

Sverige Government officials as well as civilians were caught quite by surprise when the French announced the news of the Queen's Pregnancy before anyone in Sverige knew about it. There was some disruption in the common affairs as people were taken back by the fact that they were not informed, and could not celebrate the occasion nationally. This news arrived from the following of French News shortly before the King had arrived back from Russia on a diplomatic mission. No one could reach him to find out if he was aware of this news or not, as upon arrival to the Stockholm Airport, he went under military escort to his private estate outside of the city, where the Queen wasn't.
