Armed Forces Established - New Recruits Sign Up

 

In his first act as Director, Markus Wilding has created the three main branches of the Alvonian Wehrmacht. These three branches include the Alvonian Heer, Alvonian Kriegsmarine, and Alvonian Luftwaffe. Director Wilding has stated that this force shall be used "only for the defense of Alvonia from any and all foreign aggressors."

 

Road Signs Replaced - Locals displeased

 

Road signs in the Czech state of Alvonia have been modified and changed to read in both Czech and German, causing some local citizens to voice their opposition to the decree from Vienna. Prominent Czech politician Antonie Hornick said that "the decrees from Vienna are disturbing, to say the least. We Czechs have had a long and glorious history, and to see it slowly being erased - which it will be with these new road signs - is threatening to us. First it will be the road signs, then German will become mandatory in all schools. What is next?"

Parliament Established - New members voted in

 

Although the Alvonian Constitution does not specify the need or requirement for a judicial governing body, Director Wilding has set aside a plot of land in Vienna for the construction of Parliament. Parliament will have 500 representatives from each national state and district, and while they have no legal authority Director Wilding has stated he will "take their recommendations to heart." The building itself will also house government offices for members of the Director's staff, as well as several ministry-level offices.

 

National Rail System Planned

 

Plans have been set in motion to bring rail service to all corners of Alvonia, a venture that many have called commendable and a boost to the economy. This rail service is expected to be cheap and very effective, as well as allowing for quick transport of soldiers and cargo to important locations, such as the northern docks.

Creation of the Schwarze Korps has been commissioned. This special operations unit will be made up of only the most highly-motivated and skilled members from all branches of the Wehrmacht. To be considered for the Schwarze Korps, a candidate must pass a two-month long evaluation period that tests his or her skills as a leader, soldier, innovator, tactician, mountaineer, counter-terrorist and marksman. Other skills tested during these months include firearms proficiency (both foreign and domestic), hand-to-hand combat, amphibious operations, sapping, airborne training, survival skills and low-support operations.

 

Once this evaluation period has concluded and the candidate has been selected, intense training is conducted to emphasize and hone the skills learned in the evaluation period, as well as regular field exercises. With this regular training, the Schwarze Korps shall be the most skilled unit in the entire Wehrmacht, ready to deploy to any situation at any time. Per their elite status, the Schwarze Korps will be the first to receive weapons intended for field tests and new weapons put into general service.

Germany in Anarchy! Wehrmacht Move in to Stabilize

 

Director Wilding moved troops into Germany today, giving this speech to international and local news outlets:

 

The sudden and unexpected collapse of Germany sends a wave of sadness over all of Alvonia. It has been only a few short months since the world destroyed itself in World War 8, and to see a nation with a history as rich as Germany's collapse so soon after its reformation is disturbing to us in Alvonia. Therefore, to protect our German brothers and sisters, I have ordered the Wehrmacht to move in to the former German state to prevent lawlessness and stabilize the region. I would like to make this clear to any who may confuse this - we are not conquerors, we are liberators.The Wehrmacht will be in a peacekeeping and advisory role to the local police, and after a two-month period without any major issues, a referendum will be held to determine Germany's future. We request any world nation that may have had citizens in Germany to evacuate them at once, and offer Alvonia as a safe haven for those citizens that cannot get to their home easily. The Wehrmacht, should it come across your citizens, will treat them with the highest respect they deserve as free peoples.

New Military Uniform Spotted

 

Although having been taken down by the order of Director Wilding and the Joint Chiefs of Staff, a website named armyrecognition.eu briefly posted a picture of Alvonian Schwarze Korps soldiers in what appeared to be a new uniform. While the Heer currently issues Flecktarn-pattern camouflage uniforms to its soldiers, this new uniform did not match any camouflage pattern that exists in Wehrmacht stores. A Vienna-based image recovery agency retrieved this image from the website.

Compromise Reached! Alvonian Soldiers Secure Southern Germany

 

Foreign Minister Edmund Tresler came back from Berlin today very pleased, according to Foreign Ministry sources. According to what is being referred to in the Alvonian government as "The Berlin Accords" Alvonian troops will have authority in Bayern and Baden-Wuerttemberg in peacekeeping operations. Following this peaceful resolution, Director Wilding ordered the reduction of the peacekeeping force from 20,000 soldiers to 13,500 soldiers.

Soldiers on the Italian border have been ordered to construct defensive positions. The sudden and unexpected annexation of Switzerland sent a wave of slight panic throughout Alvonia, forcing the military to respond.

 

Meanwhile, the Joint Chiefs of Staff met with Director Wilding inside the War Room. The display on the wall focused on Alvonia and her neighbors, with recent acquisitions by both France and Italy highlighted. "Ladies and gentlemen," Wilding began, "where do we stand?" Wiktor Pakulski was first to speak. "The Italians have sent a force to claim Switzerland, and as expected, the French countered by sending elements of what appear to be a division or more into the French-majority parts of Switzerland." Wilding frowned and looked at France on the screen. "How powerful is the French army?" Wiktor flipped through his papers, searching for the intelligence briefing on the French military. "Reports place the French Army between eight and nine hundred thousand combat soldiers. By all appearances, they seem to be operating with very modern equipment." Did it match or beat Alvonian tech, Wilding asked. "I believe so, Herr Direktor." Wilding nodded and moved the map on his screen to Italy and Switzerland. "General Vlasák, how do we compare to the Italian Army?" Vlasák swallowed and said, "Well, in terms of armored vehicles we have the advantage in superior training and tactics, as well as more favorable terrain for defensive operations. According to reports from the intelligence ministry, they outnumber us. There have been concerns about their air force, but it is the opinion of both myself and General von Grimmelshausen that the Italian Air Force is far too bloated and will need to be cut down." Wilding again nodded his head and accepted this. A reduction of the Italian Air Force will mean they will need to seriously reorganize their air defenses. "I see. Continue to keep me briefed on any developing situations, and ensure all branches of the Wehrmacht are running combat exercises."

Bomb Plot in Stuttgart Foiled!

 

Schwarze Korps operatives in Stuttgart today declared an operational success following the defusal and disposal of an IED in Stuttgart's industrial sector. Schwarze Korps operative Major Baumgartner stated that the criminals behind the attempted bombing were German nationalists who refused to use political measures to gain their independence and instead shot at and killed at least two Heer soldiers in the past week. According to Baumgartner, who participated in the mission that eliminated the bomb, the terrorists declared themselves as the "Deutsch Freiheitsbewegung" or German Freedom Movement. Unknown to Schwarze Korps and Wehrmacht officials is how exactly the terrorists gained access to military-grade firearms, as all armories operated by the former German military were seized and locked down as the Heer moved in. Official reports place no less than five confirmed dead terrorists at the scene.

Baden-Württemberg and Bayern Annexed!

 

A plebiscite in Baden-Württemberg and Bayern gave the following results:

 

Integrate into Alvonia - 73%

Stay a Protectorate - 20%

Independence - 7%

 

Therefore, in accordance with the wishes of the people in Baden-Württemberg and Bayern, the Alvonian Wehrmacht has begun integrating local and state-level institutions into Alvonia. The process is expected to be completed in several weeks after public officials and safety officers are retrained to Alvonian standards.

RADAR posts are being installed on the border with France, Italy and Hungary. Their purpose is to monitor for unidentified or hostile aircraft as well as serve as early warning posts. Posts of the same type are also being built in important strategic cities as well as on the Baltic coast.

 

Defenses on the Baltic coast include anti-ship missiles based in missile outposts, with a pair of two outposts stationed every 5 kilometers. These outposts will use a missile codenamed "Sunburn" in conjunction with Tu-22M naval bomber missions.

 

Anti-air defenses are to work in conjunction with RADAR readings and surveillance craft, as well as interception flights.

Wehrmacht Mobilized!

 

Following [post='3259958']a direct threat[/post] against the Alvonian Wehrmacht in Baden-Württemberg and Bayern, the Wehrmacht has been mobilized by the order of Director Markus Wilding. In a press conference in Innsbruck today, the Director said "it is clear that there are still violently nationalistic elements present in our territories. While we are glad that the citizens of Baden-Württemberg and Bayern are proud of their culture and heritage, blind nationalism that has threats of violence directed against our armed forces is not something we shall stand for. Effective immediately all non-essential personnel in Baden-Württemberg and Bayern are ordered to evacuate and all citizens in the states are warned against unnecessary travel."

German Ultranationalists Destroyed - Alvonia Breathes Sigh of Relief

 

The ultranationalist group that caused the Wehrmacht to mobilize earlier today has been wiped out followed an operation carried out jointly by the Alvonian Heer, Schwarze Korps and Luftwaffe. The group, which has been identified by the Bundesamt für Verfassungsschutz as the "Deutsch Freiheitsbewegung". The group had been under watch previously by the BfV for their failed bomb plot in Stuttgart, and their leaders had been warned by Alvonian officials to reign in or remove their radical membership. Today, it seems, no such action was taken and the radicals overtook the leadership, leading to the declaration that threatened Alvonian, French, Northlands and Baltic soldiers as they madly claimed ownership over all of Germany.

 

The Wehrmacht released a report that stated the Deutsch Freiheitsbewegung had acquired the military-grade weapons from a foreign country, but the location of origin was uncertain. The weapons used were of many varieties and makes from all parts of Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas, leading BfV officials to believe that the weapons were either bought independent of each other or purposefully collected so as to mask the actual seller's home nation. The report from the Wehrmacht also stated that that over 200 members of the Deutsch Freiheitsbewegung had been killed and nearly 80 arrested and held for terrorism, conspiring against the state, murder of Alvonian soldiers, destruction of government property, and attempted destruction of public property. Most of the main leaders of the group were killed in the operation.

 

Alvonian citizens, in response to the threat, answered in a poll that they supported a more proactive military and political approach to dealing with ultranationalists of any state, be it Czech, Polish, Austrian, German or even a foreign nation. After the threat had been resolved, another poll showed that the Alvonian people were relieved that the threat had been dealt with, although some reported being troubled that their own countrymen had to be killed because of political differences.

 

As a result, Director Wilding has ordered that any group that recruits based on a cultural heritage must prove it does not have ultranationalistic leanings. Should these groups be found in violation of this edict that effectively bans ultranationalistic writings, groups, or propaganda, they will be swiftly and harshly dealt with. Discussions are ongoing in the Reichstag to determine if Alvonia should have the right to intervene militarily in other states to suppress and destroy ultranationalist groups.

"Anti-Ultranationalist" Bill Signed into Law!

 

Following a [post='3260425']Reichstag[/post] vote, which stalled at 2 "Yes", 5 "In special circumstances", and 7 "No", leading to a 7-7 deadlock, Director Markus Wilding ordered the bill be signed into law regardless, giving it his stamp of approval and signing it just half an hour ago. A compromise was reached between lawmakers that modified the bill to read as follows, which will now serve as Alvonia's formal "Anti-Ultranationalist" stance and policy.

 

 

Anti-Ultranationalism and Prevention of Ultranationalism

 

Article I: Purposes of this Bill

The stated purpose of this document is to prevent and destroy ultranationalism, wherever it may lie. This document gives the Alvonian state and the Wehrmacht the legal authority to conduct offensive operations to destroy or otherwise eliminate any ultranationalist groups as it sees fit. This document may be used as an official casus belli, should evidence prove that an ultranationalist group has taken control of a government.

 

Article II: Definition of "Ultranationalist"

An "ultranationalist" is defined as follows:

  • Declares unity with a specific ethnic or cultural group
  • Seeks the absolute and uncompromising unification of a culturally prominent state, regardless of geopolitical realities
  • Demands all "foreign" nationals and soldiers leave areas they deem to be a part of their nation
  • Threatens the armed forces of any nation with violence should they fail to evacuate themselves
  • Threatens the stability of any continent, region, or area
  • Has demonstrated the ability and will to conduct terrorist, nuclear, biological, or chemical attacks against any population or armed force

Article III: Means of Determining Use of Bill

This bill shall be used as a legal casus belli once any or all of the following requirements are met:

  1. The group or nation in question is a clear threat to stability
  2. The group or nation in question has declared it will seek to forcefully remove anyone
  3. The group in question has conducted a coup against a sovereign nation
  4. The group or nation in question has conducted a terrorist, nuclear, biological, or chemical attack against an armed force or civilian population.
  5. The group or nation in question has intentionally targeted civilians in any way, causing physical or mental harm or death.

Article IV: Negotiation

Negotiation with any ultranationalist group will not be conducted under any circumstances. Conditions of surrender to be sent to any nation that is under control of an ultranationalist group will be unconditional surrender.

In conjunction with the Militärische Forschung und Entwicklung division of the Wehrmacht and AWS, a new type of armor named "Power armor" is being distributed among two heavy infantry regiments of the Heer. Power armor is the pinnacle of infantry protection, and while it seems to be simply plates of steel, the armor is rated to resist 7.62 and lower. The drawbacks of this armor, however, include the need to custom-fit the armor to a soldier, as well as being so heavy that micro-motors must be installed to facilitate movement. In addition to this, a month of training is required for a soldier to wear the armor. A ventilation system is installed into the power armor so as to prevent the user from becoming overheated during normal use.

 

RemnantsPowerArmor.png

Design concepts of power armor for the Wehrmacht. Helmet is being considered optional and replaced with a normal ballistic helmet.

 

OOC: This can be considered non-canon, and the regiments outfitted with this armor will be wearing normal uniforms and will fight slightly better due to having heavier weapons than a normal infantry battalion.

STATE OF EMERGENCY DECLARED. THIS IS NOT A DRILL, REPEAT, THIS IS NOT A DRILL.

 

The Wehrmacht has been mobilized following confirmed reports of multiple nuclear attacks in Asia. All civilians are advised to seek shelter unless otherwise instructed by radio, cell phone, television, or an officer of the Wehrmacht. Although there very little chance of a nuclear missile hitting Alvonia, the Wehrmacht and its anti-missile forces will be on constant guard and will deflect any attack aimed at our great nation.

Highly Classified - Top Secret!

 

Tabun gas artillery shells have been chosen as a tactical chemical weapons response. These will be used only on orders from Oberkommando der Wehrmacht (OKW). In addition, stores of sarin gas cruise and tactical missiles have been produced as well. These will be used only on the direct order of Director Wilding.

 

In addition to this, select Marder 1A4 vehicles have been given modifications to replace their main weapon with a short-range flamethrower. Napalm will also be a mission loadout option for gunship helicopters and CAS on ground-attack missions.

10 MGM-31 Pershing II missiles have been constructed for general Wehrmacht use. These ten will have normal high-explosive warheads for strategic destruction of enemy military bases, ports, and defensive structures deemed impossible to take with land forces alone.

 

5 RK-55 missiles have been constructed with the intent for a long-range response to overwhelming forces. These missiles will have their warheads, which are normally high-explosive and nuclear, replaced with either Tabun gas or sarin. These shall be used under the direct order of Director Wilding.

 

All missiles will be on a rotation in their deployments in Aalen, Weis, Tabor, Nowogard, Lublin, Sumperk, and Klatovy to prevent exact information on the strategic rocket deployments of the Wehrmacht. These missiles will be transported under cover of night and by rail after being camouflaged.

 

Batteries of 4 MIM-104D Patriot anti-missile missiles have been deployed in the following cities; Vienna, Innsbruck, Munich, Stuttgart, Nuremberg, Brno, Prague, Ostrava, Wroclaw, Zielona Gora, Gorzow Weilkopolski, and Szczecin.

Bomb Threat; Capital Evacuated!

 

Vienna was officially vacated by all government officials today at 7:52 AM Vienna Time after a [post='3263628']suspected bomb threat[/post] forced the deployment of the Schwarze Korps to the city. Director Markus Wilding and his staff have all been transported to safehouses and are still in communication with each other.

 

Details of the suspected bomber are vague. Speaking on the condition of anonymity, a Schwarze Korps officer stated that the bomber was determined to have hailed from France and previously ran an elaborate burglary ring that targeted the wealthy. The officer stated that the Schwazre Korps learned of this threat through "operations in the field which uncovered strong evidence to suggest such a planned attack." For now, though, Vienna is becoming a ghost town as the Schwarze Korps search for this suspected bomb, starting with government buildings first.

Capital cleared

 

After an exhaustive 9-hour search, the Wehrmacht declared Vienna free of any bombs or other such devices. In response to this news, citizens and government officials began to return to the city, although Director Wilding still remains notably absent. From a secure location, he stated to the press that the suspect behind the bomb threat had been identified and is believed to have fled to Italy. For now, it appears peace will finally return to Alvonia.

 

All-points bulletin issued for Florentin Josué Delacroix

 

In related news, all nations in Europe have been advised to be on the lookout for a man by the name of Florentin Josué Delacroix. Mr. Delacroix is a former French citizen that immigrated to Germany before the Great Collapse and is wanted in Alvonia on charges of terrorism, theft, conspiracy to commit theft, and illegal firearms ownership. He is considered armed and dangerous, and was last reported to be heading to Italy, although all nations are advised to arrest and deport Mr. Delacroix should he attempt to enter.

The Italian government is fully willing to cooperate with Alvonian authorities. Grand Chancellor Adriano Marcellino has instructed all relevant Italian law enforcement agencies to search for Florentin Josué Delacroix. If there is any sign of him, Italy will notify Alvonia as soon as possible. Italy requests any additional information about this suspect.
