"I guess, it is time to make a point.", Maria stated, as she looked over the document in her hands. "We have waited for this quite some time. It should've been done earlier. But well, what would happen if we stayed silent forever. People might forget that our interests actually matter..."
 
With a few swift strokes, the document, as well as a few orders would be signed. Quickly following, the two mountain divisions in Subcarpathia would be reinforced by no less than 6 motorised infantry divisions, 6 mechanised infantry divisions and four armoured divisions.

On the 5th of August, in the early morning hours, as the deployments were just about to go into position, the Alvonian government would be publicly handed the following note:
 

To the Alvonian Director Markus Wilding and his ministers,
 
In the last few years, the Alvonian Wehrmacht has, without doubt, become a serious threat to European stability. Its adventures in Poland and Brandenburg are just the most recent transgressions against peace and it cannot be denied that Alvonia, by virtue of its history of hostile and aggressive foreign policy, as well as its uncivilised resort to use of force and threat thereof as the main instruments of foreign policy, can no longer go ignored as a threat to our allies and national interests. It is thus, that the Greater Romanian government and the Romanian monarch have resorted to use this very same instrument Alvonia is so fond of, in order to curb Alvonia's rabid expansionism under the guise of exterminating bolshevism, ultranationalism and whatnot. We hereby demand of the alvonian government and Wehrmacht the following:

  • Alvonia is to immediatly withdraw from all its remaining Polish posessions, as well as its recent unlawful land gains in northern Germany, which will be ceded to an authority under the command of Romania, Hungary, Belarus and Prussia, which shall work out a more permanent redistribution of these lands. Alvonia has to have no further grounds in these regions, which provide it with a setting stage for military adventures into our allies' sphere of influence or home territory.
  • Alvonia is to limit its armed forces to 100,000 active duty personel. These soldiers must be hired on a professional basis and may not be called upon via conscription. Soldiers in alvonian service must be retained for 10 years, in which they may not be released. Officers must be retained for at least 30 years of service. Alvonia is also to decrease its airforce to a strength of 100 aircraft and its tank forces to a mere 200 tanks. Such, we find a reasonable strength for a country your size, without encouraging military adventurism.
  • Alvonia will agree to no longer start an offensive war against any other nation, without prior approval by a commission made up by Romania, Hungary, Belarus and Prussia. Alvonia clearly has wasted away any of our confidence in it itself being able to properly judge a just cause for war.

These are our terms. We expect approval within an hour, lest Alvonia be facing the armed forces of our country.
 
Signed,
M.S. Maria I de România, R.R.

"Hm?" Finn Powers said as the Romanian message came to his desk. He had spent much of the morning in his new office smoking and drinking whiskey, a habit he had carried over from working in Ireland. Putting a new cigarette in his mouth, Finn snatched the message and read it over a few times. After his third read-through, he smirked. "Me oh my," he said to nobody, "we've run into some trouble, haven't we?"

 

Finn took a short walk to Director Wilding's office, where he saw that Wilding had the same message. Soon Finn and Wilding were joined by the other ministers in Wilding's service, all holding the same piece of paper. Wilding silently motioned them all in, where some, including Finn, took seats. "It seems we're being threatened again," Wilding said flatly. "Mr. Powers, what do you suggest we do?" Finn inhaled his cigarette deeply and exhaled, pointing his blow away from Wilding. "I say %*#@ it. We blast all of these morons with our missiles and never look back. We got that Ebola virus loaded, right?" Next to him, Joachim Köhl said "We can't fire the first shots. That would only prove their point." "Well, if we can't fire the first goddamn shots, then what the hell do you suggest we do? I dunno about you, but I'm not agreeing to this bull%*#@ at all." "Enough," Wilding said. "Mrs. Dressler, if you would please retrieve the plans." Dressler nodded and exited back to her office, soon coming back with a rolled-up map. "We've prepared for this contingency," she said as she unrolled the map, "but I doubt very many of you will like it." Finn and the others stood up to look at these supposed "plans". The map detailed Alvonia as it was, sans of course the Polish states. Both Maria Adamczak and Bazyli Gorski at once demanded to know what this was. "Like I said," Dressler explained, "a contingency. We...drop the Polish states and hang on to what we have. Then, when the time comes, liberate our Polish brothers and sisters once more." Arguing soon developed, with half of the ministry calling the plan inhuman while the other half argued it was necessary for the survival of the Alvonian state, and besides, we would come back for them.

 

After a few minutes of nonstop arguing, Finn's voice broke the air. "Fine, let's do it. But we damn well better hold up on this promise and not give an inch, otherwise you can find another foreign minister." Wilding nodded, and announced that this was final. No more arguing.

 

Public

 

Finn Powers appeared on a stage, with Alvonian flags flanking him, his face locked in a permanent frown, his eyes perpetually angry. This expression would not change as he spoke.

 

Alright, I've had a few whiskeys today, so excuse me if I don't stick around for questions.

 

First, Maria the First of Romania, kindly %*$# off. That goes for the other morons in Hungary-Slovakia, Belarus, and Prussia you have following your ass like dogs. I don't know what Director Wilding did to you, whether it was pissing in your Cheerios one morning or calling your mother fat, but let's be honest here: this isn't about us at all. You just want more people to tax and you're gonna try to take it from people who legitimately own the land.

 

Second, while we're going to withdraw from our Polish lands, we're not giving up Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. If you want to "redistribute" that, you come and %*$@ing take it. We'll be waiting with hot coffee. Which brings me to my next point. We're not agreeing to any of this disarmament %*$@, what we're going to do is use our arms and kick your asses if you try and come and take them from us. We're not going to ask your "permission" to start a war, ever. If you don't like it, get your ass down here to Vienna and make us.

 

Give me a ring when you want to be reasonable.

 

With that, Finn Powers left the stage.

"The Imperium wonders if the use of such harsh terms towards Alvonia simply is serving as a pretext to force a war due to Romania's stronger diplomatic position. Alvonia has worked towards ensuring a stable Europe with its work in creating EuroComm, and we may not support their recent actions in Brandenburg due to lack of evidence, the threat of ultra-nationalism is of concern to all nations. The Imperium is currently at war with a nation with significantly less resources than our own, and yet we'd never push for anything other than the return of the status quo when our current spat with the Russian Empire is resolved, if you wish to war Alvonia then do so honestly, not under an illusion of serving as European Police."

-Osamu Saito, Minister of Foreign Affairs.

The female Muscovite reporter felt herself get wet at Powers's forceful words. Excusing herself, she scurried off to the nearest restroom.

 

Meanwhile, the Foreign Ministry would issue the following message:

 

"The terms set forth by Romania and her allies, while noble in their intentions to reduce the incidence of war and aggression, are concerning. The Alvonian state had committed aggressive and hostile actions in recent times, yes, but they have also worked to further peace and stability in the European continent through their participation in the European Community in the past, and Romania and her allies should take that into consideration. Unilaterally demanding that Alvonia vacate part of her sovereign territory, drastically reduce the size of her military and curtail her sovereignty and freedom of action will not be conductive to lasting peace in Europe, and may actually contribute to further aggression and instability. In turn, the aggressive tone and vile words utilized by Minister Powers are not appropriate in international diplomacy and may undermine Alvonia's position, given their recent actions and rhetoric. We urge all sides to enter into polite and productive dialogue in which they would be able to reconcile their interests and work together to further peace and prosperity in the Continent."

The Northlands would watch the events unfold with extreme interest. Border security with Alvonia had been strengthened with the possibility of conflict. The Northlands would not publicly declare support for any side at this point in time, although in private officials would be torn between the hypocrisy in Romania's statement as well as Alvonia getting what it deserved.

Milan is worried by the Romanian insistence on classifying the Northlandic/Alvonian peace agreement regarding northern Germany as "unlawful", and formally requests that the Romanian government make public anything that might put these extraordinary claims into proper context. It may be in the Romanian national interest to seize Alvonian lands, but it is in the interest of all states to uphold the principles of sovereignty which give legitimacy to the agreements between our governments. Without that, Europe can only fall into anarchy, which is the exact opposite of Maria I's cited purpose for this 11th hour diplomacy.

 

If peace and stability is indeed the goal here, let the nations of Romania, Belarus, Prussia, and Hungary show their commitment by fostering multilateral dialogue without threats of invasion. Without this, Milan is simply left wondering where these eastern European police were when there actually was open conflict in Brandenburg which threatened regional security. And, of course, why Romanians would care about northern Germany in the first place... it has been a long time since there was a sizable Saxon population in Transylvania.

"The Kingdom is extremely worried by this proclamation, showcasing the apparent and complete disregard for mutual dialogue and diplomacy between these countries and Alvonia to begin with. Peace cannot be found within Europe if dialogue between states is not established on an equal platform, free from threats of invasion.

 

Regarding the 'unlawful' peace agreement, the kingdom must echo the Milanese Republic to see the evidence that makes the peace agreement between the Northlands and Alvonia to be 'unlawful' between these countries. To that end, the Kingdom pleads for its neighbors to see to it that dialogue and diplomacy is used to prevent blood from being shed."
 
Respectfully,
HM Kralj Dragojev Belojevic

"The Alvonian Director and his government have responded to our note from one hour ago in an unsatisfactory manner. The Greater Romanian government sees itself thus forced to see the Alvonian threat neutered, lest they do more damage to our national interest and European stability. We thus inform Alvonia, that we see ourselves from this moment on as in a state of war with Alvonia, until such a time that the Alvonian forces surrender to us and agree to peace on terms lined out in the aforementioned note, as well as any additional terms we might find necessary, depending on Alvonian conduct."

-Alexandru Vlasceanu, Prime Minister of Greater Romania

As the news arrived in Bucharest, they were immediatly forwarded to the Queen. Maria was already looking over the notes on troop deployments, when the transcript arrived. Looking over it, she merely smiled, went up to the fireplace and dropped the paper, which was quickly consumed by the flames. "I guess, we'll get to the fun part then. Better ready the spikes."

 

The stack of notices and complaints, Maria would preserve, all put into one folder, which would be marked "for personal use only". Once she had them all neatly ordered alphabetically, according to the country name, she would jot down a note and hand it her personal secretary. "This needs to be transmitted to the Ministry of War immediatly."

 

The secretary, while a bit horrified already since some time ago by what his monarch was doing in private and how she conducted policy, looked quite dumbfounded. "What about diplomacy?" The words slipped his mouth, before he immediatly regretted speaking them. A cold disgusted glare would be the reply. "Don't joke. We conducted diplomacy. We are conducting diplomacy. This is diplomacy. We sent a letter, but as you may have realised... some only understand the language of the sword. And such we shall speak. Now go, before I have your head on a spike too."

 

As soon as the secretary left, Maria would open the drawer of her desk and take out a party hat and a couple party poppers. While the main fireworks would be elsewhere, at least some celebratory ones she could fire off in her office, on this special day.

Operation August Storm

 

Without further ado, notes went to the frontline commanders, that the operation planned for quite some time had now been approved. With a bit of silent joy, the commanders would salute and go to their respective units, to pass on the orders. From airfields in Transilvania and northern Moldova, Romanian fighter aircraft had already taken off in advance and were now advancing at supersonic speed towards the Alvonian-Hungarian border. A total of 60 Su-35 air superiority fighters, armed with long-range and short-range air-to-air missiles, as well as 2 Kh-58U anti-radiation missiles each. Approaching on high altitude, they would release their missiles over Central Hungary, programmed to pick up targets once they crossed the border, to shut down radar coverage in the Austrian and Moravian lands. Together with the fighters, around three dozen Liliac long-range cruise missiles would be fired, targetting Alvonian air bases and airfields and known long-range radar installations. With the radar shut-down from the first wave (either via destruction or deliberate shutdown to avoid destruction), these missiles would use the window of opportunity presented to take out airforce infrastructure. Fighters in the air would be countered by volleys of R-77 missiles, should Alvonian air patrols be around or taking off. Airfields further inland of Alvonia, in Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria would meanwhile be targetted by medium-range ballistic missiles, two per target, launched too from Romania proper.

 

At the same time, the Romanian forces stationed in Hungary, would advance via Slovakia to Bratislava, in order to mount an attack directly on Vienna, which was after all, already in artillery range from Slovakia. The Romanian attack, by no less than 18 divisions, would be concentrating on an attack via the Marchfeld, a wide open region, adjoined to the Panonnian plain. With little terrain that would provide a good defensive position, the Romanian armoured and mechanised forces would just concentrate at this location, in order to reach the capital of Alvonia directly. The advance by TR-14 MBTs and MLI-84s, armed with anti-tank missiles and carrying Romanian soldiers would be preceeded by a screen of light infantry, highly trained and adept at infiltration tactics, to locate properly enemy defensive positions, if Alvonia had set such up in the time they had been given. These light infantry units, taken party from the elite Romanian mountain divisions would only operate in small groups, trying not to actually breach the enemy lines, but to covertly find and if needed take care of these positions with precision fire. In the rear, highly mobile ATROM and LAROM gun and rocket artillery would keep ready to lay down precision or supressive fire, if called upon. The advance would be for now careful and proping, but the order was to decapitate the snake early and the Romanians were confident.

 

Lastly, in Moldova and Ukraine, long-range bomber aircraft of the Corpul I° Bombardieri would take to the air, in order to stay ready for support operations.

 

In the South meanwhile, Romania would be on guard. Units of the militia and regular army would be strengthened and a defensive position would be established. Anti-air missiles and fighter patrols would be set up, as the threat of a southern front loomed over Romania. While most of the border with Zapadnaya consisted out of the Danube river, the part of Dobrogea would see defensive entrenchments by regular Romanian infantry regiments.

The Hungary-Slovakian parliament would pass resolutions authorizing the use of Hungary-Slovakian military force against Alvonia, and authorizing Belarusian and Romanian military and support forces to use Hungary-Slovakian roads and rails, and to base military and transport planes in Hungary-Slovakia, for the duration of the conflict.  Both resolutions would be signed within the hour by Prime Minister Rikard Beres.
 
DEFCON would be taken from 2 to 1, and all the AA guns and mobile SAMs already at the Alvonian border would be pput on high alert and ordered to shoot down any Alvonian aircraft that comes within 3 miles of Hungary-Slovakia or Hungary-Slovakian controlled provinces in Poland.
 
At the Hungary-Slovakian Air Force base closest to the Alvonian border, an E-3 Sentry AWACS plane, two Boeing RC-135 Rivet Joint planes, and a E-8C Joint STARS plane would be ordered to stand-by and await further orders for take-off.
 
Blackhawks, Chinooks, Super Cobras, and Apaches would also be ordered to stand-by for take-off.
 
All but 100,000 Hungary-Slovakian troops in Hungary-Slovakia and Subcarpathia would be ordered to the Alvonian border and placed on high alert. The rest are held in reserve.
 
Artillery has been ordered to be transported as close to the Alvonian border as is safely possible, and placed on high alert as well.

The Eighth, Tenth, Eleventh, and Thirteenth Land Divisions, along with 57,250 reservists, which had been drilling in the Masovian region, would quickly be deployed to the border between the Hungarian held Lodz region and the Alvonian held region of Greater Poland. The Eigth, Tenth, and Eleventh Air divisons would also be deployed to Lodz in order to assist in defending Belarusian troops from the air. Missile defences and Anti-aircraft systems would be set up and ordered to shoot down any Alvonian military aircraft and missiles on both sides of the border. Belarusian forces on the ground would be ordered to spread themselves out as much as possible without leaving the protective umbrella created by the Anti-air defences. No other offensive actions would be taken yet. Any Alvonian troops or aircraft that attempted to cross the border would be fires upon.

 

Meanwhile, in Belarus, DEFCON would be raised to 2, and all reservists would be alled up for action. The border with Muscovy and the Baltics would be secured.

"The support shown for Alvonia by the international community is commendable, but misguided. Understand that our cause is to neutralise the threat they pose to European stability with their blatant aggression and fascism, as demonstrated by their attacks on Brandenburg. T'is time for Prussia to have a hand in toppling the tyrant, and to teach a lesson in cause and effect."
- Public statement by King Wilhelm von Hohenzollern.


Private

In their private residence, the Hohenzollerns met for Operation Blitzkrieg - they took out party poppers and hats, and then popped them.

"Haven't we missed the party time by almost two hours now?", remarked one Sophia von Hohenzollern.

"STFU.", returned Friedrich.

They then went off to their respective duties, with most of them going into secure locations.

In tandem with Romanian military movements, Prussia's own began. Leading the charge were two squadrons of F-22s. Entering West Pomeranian Alvonia, they would be equipped for air-to-air combat, and clear the skies for the further two squadrons of Eurofighter Typhoons behind them. With their inventory consisting of AGM-88s, Storm Shadows and Brimstones, their job would be to focus on land attack. They would be focused on neutralising radar installations, runways and any groups of military. Operations would be conducted at a high altitude, to minimise effectiveness of any preventative measures taken by Alvonia. Identical operations would also take place in Greater Polish Alvonia.

West Pomerania would then be targeted by Prussian ground forces. Totaling 180,000, they would form a spearhead protected by the aforementioned air assets. With fast recon at the tip, they would report back to and be followed by armoured divisions, with artillery support. With the neutralisation of military assets in mind, they would use quick communication alongside shoot-and-scoot artillery to inflict as much damage as possible, with minimum casualties. Both the recon and main parts of the infantry would be equipped with anti-tank missiles and MANPADs to clean up any remains from the air operations.

Elsewhere in Prussia, cruise missiles and other planes would be prepped throughout the country, with many forces on the border with Greater Poland there to keep Alvonian troops contained. With their own artillery, AA, and armoured support, they would mantain a dominating air superiority and swap out air squadrons when they needed to be restocked. The same would be done in West Pomerania. Edited by Horo the Wise Wolf

OOC: Listen to this
 
The following was sent to all allies and all friendly nations in the world:
 

Esteemed leader,
 
Again I am forced to write to you in a time of need. Our great nation has again come under an unjustified attack, and the forces arrayed against us threaten to rip the very fabric of our nation apart. This time, peace is not an option.
 
I call upon all forces friendly to the Alvonian state to assist us in repelling this ridiculous and baseless assault on our country and ideals.
 
Director Markus Wilding

 
Meanwhile, the following address was made via radio and television from a secure location, the signal unable to be pinned down:
 
People of Alvonia,
 
I come to you in a dire time. We have been unjustly and deliberately attacked by the combined forces of Romania, Hungary-Slovakia, Belarus, and Prussia, the last of whom we fought to protect and secured their rights to declare freedom in our protectorate, for which we have fought so hard against before from Ukrainian incursions to Hungarian and Belarussian plots. This war will not guarantee peace. It will not guarantee the survival of our great nation. The forces arrayed against us are many. We will lose many a brave man and woman in the coming hours, all who will die faithfully in service defending our home, our Alvonia, from foreign aggression. We will show no quarter to our enemy, and we expect none, for it is clear our opponents are blinded by their own views. For this reason, I hereby release any Wehrmacht soldier, sailor, airman, or officer who was born in any of the following areas: Neiderschlesien, Lebus, and Vorpommern. As you are Polish, Alvonia is no longer in your debt. You are free to leave with no dishonor. As much as it pains me to say this, while your homes were the cause of this conflict, Alvonia is no longer your home. To our Czech, German and those Polish brothers and sisters who wish to stand and die with us, total war must be conducted against the coalition against us. We fight not for Polish solidarity, or to purge the ultranationalists, but to keep our home safe. We will not allow the combined armies of our enemies to impose their will on us. We will stand as one, and we will fall as one. Edited by Markus Wilding

Operation: STING

 
5 nuclear ICBMs were launched to destroy the entire build-up along the Hungarian/Alvonian border, on the Hungarian side. Two more were directed at the capitol. Eight more nuclear ICBMs would target Prussia; Two at the capitol, two at the residence of the Hohenzollern's, and four more to destroy any troops moving towards the Alvonian border. The last 10 nuclear ICBMs in the Milanese arsenal were kept on guard in the case of retaliation, in secret silos not near any of the others, hidden with appropriate technology. Due to careful monitoring from high-tech satellites, radar, and other stuff, it would be a massive success, and the heads of state of both Prussia and Hungary would most likely be killed in the attack, as well as their governments. Infrastructure and even society itself would break down in the resulting panic, perhaps leading to the collapse of both states. Doge Hereno has not been seen since the order was given, and may have left the country. It would be impossible for any attack on his life to be successful, not that any was expected....
 
Suddenly, television!
 
The Doge proclaims;
 
"Until the Romanians retreat and end this senseless violence, we will send more nukes targeted at Maria I every day until she and the entire Romanian aristocracy are green with radiation. You could have stopped this. WHY DIDN'T YOU DO ANYTHING?!"
 
At that point, the Doge's image began turning into that of a doge, as Ron Paul came on in the background playing an electric guitar in the nude. The doge head began spinning at an alarming rate before the entire Senate clapped at the spectacle and declared Milan the best country in the world in a unanimous decision. Edited by Hereno

Zugzwang
 
Meanwhile, as Director Wilding's address to the nation played, headquarters around Neiderschlesien, Lebus, and Vorpommern burned and exploded - the Wehrmacht had just purged all documents and destroyed any useful technology. The minute Finn Power's message had been sent, all elements of the Wehrmacht had retreated from the Polish states, destroying armories, documents, and other such information on the Wehrmacht's operating procedures and communications protocols, among other things.
 
In the barracks and field outposts across Alvonia, only a handful of Polish natives would elect to leave the Wehrmacht. The rest would explain their motives to their superiors as "We were given a home and hope by Director Wilding. It would be wrong and immoral to deny him the same now."
 
Devils in the Tower

As it stood, the 1. Gepanzerte Kavallerie-Division, Marinestoßtruppregiment, 11. Infanterie-Division, 4,000 Schwarze Korps members, and 5. Infanterie-Division were now trapped in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. They would quickly set about constructing elaborate minefields, composed of both anti-personnel and anti-armor mines, while access to major cities would feature the previous mines and special flamethrower mines set to tripwires, hidden on random street corners and building entrances. The Wehrmacht forces present in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern itself would make themselves scarce, although the presence of two RK-55 missiles was unmistakable by any recon that could get close enough. Also present in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern were the entire complement of the Luftwaffe's Tu-22M naval bombers and 20 Panavia Tornados and 10 ADVs.
 
In Alvonia proper, the remaining 205,860 soldiers of the Wehrmacht dug in, planting as usual a mix of anti-tank and anti-personnel mines along strategic routes and likely advance routes. Alongside these soldiers were the remaining six Panzer divisions, the remaining Schwarze Korps members, and the remaining Luftwaffe complement. Likewise, Vienna would be made a fortress with mines planted wherever deemed necessary and all civilians evacuated to safe zones in Milan and other friendly nations. Like in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, flamethrower mines would be planted according to Wehrmacht doctrine.

 

Radar installations and the radar of anti-aircraft weapons, exactly one hour after Finn Power's broadcast had been aired, were turned off, and only turned back on once it was confirmed enemy air power had breached the border. Panavia Tornado and Tornado ADV planes rose into the air several minutes before the hour was up to begin counter-attacks against the enemy planes, firing off flares if locked on and launching their own armaments of long-range and medium-range anti-air missiles. Tu-95MS planes also took off and launched Kh-101 missiles at any confirmed enemy anti-air unit that dared to ping itself. As this happened, runways cratered by enemy missiles would be quickly rebuilt to the best of the local Pioner's abilities. Continued bombardment would leave the Luftwaffe little choice but to fly to bingo fuel.

 

Meanwhile, artillery units attached to their various divisions began bombarding any enemy unit that breached the border, moving away after firing their barrages. The Marchfeld, once recon units confirmed Romanian movements in the area, would become subjected to fire from 150 Raketenartilleriepanzers in an effort to disrupt and force the Romanians to at the minimum take their advance much more slowly than they would like to. Again, after firing the Raketenartilleriepanzers would withdraw to reload.

 

Prussia would find it was very late to the party and only burning headquarters, army barracks, and naval ports could be seen across former Alvonian Poland.

OOC: Military reply will come later, once things have been sorted out. For now, a diplomatic reply though.

 

IC:

 

Confidential

 

Following the nuclear attacks on Romania's allies, the Greater Romanian monarch saw it necessary to respond. Maria I de România, Queen of the Romanians for once would appear in public. Altough she hated public appearances, Maria would not be able to simply avoid responsibilities this time. At least, the message would be fun this time, Maria thought, as she sat down for the radio broadcast. after a couple minutes of testing her "sad" voice, Maria would start, once she thought it sounded shocked enough.

 

Public

 

"When our valiant coalition decided to take action against the sources of instability in the center of this continent, we were responded to with the insolent barking from a mad dog. When our coalition then decided to follow through with its threat to take action, we earned the doubtful messages from across the world, stating that Alvonia was not the source of instability we denounced it as. This was very regretable, but knowing the nature of the beast, we decided to press on regardless. Now, however, Alvonia and its allies have clearly shown their true colours. Milanese nuclear weapons have been launched at both our coalition's forces and civilians. In the most despicable manner, Alvonia and its allies have resorted to weapons of mass destruction, to not merely attack our military forces, but to terrorise our civilians likewise.

 

In response to this brutality, Greater Romania hereby recognises hostilities with Milan. It cannot be questioned that Milan has acted in a hostile manner towards us and our allies, with their insane usage of nuclear weapons. Furthermore, in the name of our coalition, we announce that this war will continue. We do not deal with nuclear rogue regimes. The sole surrender we shall take from Alvonia and its co-combattants in this conflict shall be an unconditional one. Peace terms shall reflect the further behaviour of the Alvonian side. Greater Romania at this point additionally announces that whoever joins in defense of nuclear rogue regimes, after having witnessed the criminal actions displayed here, will be held responsible in the same manner as Alvonia and Milan. Our country and our most honourable coalition is determined to continue its crusade for stability until these unstable elements either repent or are purged.

 

As a last matter, I have an announcement to the Doge of Milan: I will survive. your country may not."

 

As the broadcast ended, Maria would walk back to her office, in order to sign further orders to the varmed forces and a few warrants to the Romanian secret police.

 

Additionally a message would be sent in private to Sparta.

 

To the honourable and glorious Spartans,

 

While we acknowledge that Sparta is already heavily engaged in pacifying its new eastern gains, which need to be consolidated, our recent war with Alvonia and now Milan has experienced a whole new level of perfidy. at the current point of time, we think that our forces are able to manage the war effort without your assistence, by conventional means. However, should further forces join on the side of the Alvonians and the Milanese, we might be forced to seek your assistence.

 

Until further notice, our assistence in Asia Minor will remain available to support you though and should the situation develop to the worse, we are ready to reinforce these divisions with up to five more.

 

With kind regards,

Maria de România

The Hungarian military detected the launch of the nuclear missiles in Milan, and therefore all military and government leadership were able to make it safely into bomb shelters, as did most of the citizens.

Still, there was approximately 50,000 military and several thousand civilian casualties, and billions of dollars worth of damage.

*Prime Minister Rikard Beres would address the nation and international community today via live television broadcast.*

Yesterday evening, the Milanese government took it upon themselves to escalate hostilities by not only nuking 10 percent of Hungary,s military forces, but also callously and cruelly launching several nukes at Budapest, causing several thousand innocent civilian casualties and billions of dollars worth of devastation.

In doing so, Milan has made it clear our coalition, and likely to the international community, that Alvonia is not the only threat to regional stability, but that Milan is a serious threat to peace and stability as well. For only a government run by insanity would cruelly and unnecessarily end the lives of thousands of innocent civilians and cause unnecessary nuclear devastation.

Because of this callous disregard of innocent life, billions of dollars worth of devastation, and very real and vey serious threat to regional stability by Milan, Hungary-Slovakia will now only accept the unconditional surrenders of both Alvonia and Milan. Alvonia and Milan will also be held responsible for the repayment for the tens if not hundreds of billions of dollars worth of devastation they have caused, by way of post-war reparations.

It is Hungary-Slovakia's hope that our allies will stand united beside Hungary-Slovakia, in an united effort to either remove both the Alvonian and Milanese as threats, or to bring about the unconditional surrenders of both nations.

While Humgary could easily retaliate by cruise, tactical, or Scud missiles launched at civilian or economic targets in Milan, we refuse to do so, for unlike the deranged war criminals running the Milanese government, Hungary-Slovakia respects the lives and property of innocent civilians.

The remaining ~400,000 to ~450,000 troops standing at the Alvonian border would put on their Nuclear, Biological, Chemical suits and, with support from light and medium tanks, artillery, and assault helicopters, would open fire on any remaining Alvonian troops at the border that survived the nuclear blast and nuclear irradiation unleashed by their own ally.

 

The Hungary-Slovakian troops, tanks, and assault helicopters would begin to advance across the border into Alvonia.

 

The Hungary-Slovakian military would also begin to fire short and medium range tactical missiles, cruise missiles, and SCUD missiles into Milan, destroying varous targets, such as run ways, rail lines, radar stations, as well as other various military and military-related targets.

Meanwhile, on the Czech border, Belarusian troops would begin their own offensive. A large artillery strike would target any defences placed on the border by Alvonia, and ground forces would slowly move over the border, heading for the nearby city of Ostrava. In the air, Belarusian MiGs would target any Alvonian jets that got into range. The Belarusian forces would also fire about 100 missiles into the Czech region, targetting any Alvonian military infrastructure that had survived the Romanian strikes, as well as areas of industry. Belarusian troops would be fully equipped for nuclear and chemical strikes.

 

Back in Minsk, the government would sign a bill that would send a massive amount of cash, ammunition, food, and medical aid into Hungary-Slovakia, in order to assist in in rebuilding from the recent nuclear strikes.

Movements

Milan currently recognizes a state of war with Hungary-Slovakia, Romania, and Prussia, with the former two having declared war on Milan; the Romanians having done so without prior attack by the Milanese. Belorussian assets were far away and not a significant threat to the Alvonians, although there would be extensive monitoring to ensure that Belarus remained on the backburner only as long as appropriate.

Approximately 120,000 Milanese soldiers, along with artillery, tanks, anti-aircraft guns, towed and self-propelled howitzers, radar equipment, and a good amount of supplies would head north towards the Alvonian border in a convoy. They would be covered in the air by hundreds of Eurofighters in over a dozen squadrons, who would make quick work of the helicopters and begin to assault the Hungarian contingent moving into Alvonia, but only in areas identified to be out of range of Hungarian anti-aircraft guns. These areas would become more and more plentiful as anti-aircraft assets and runways in Western Hungary would be targeted by an extensive barrage of cruise missiles, not to mention surgical strikes by the planes themselves. After achieving aerial dominance, the full force of the Milanese military would come down on the largest blobs of its advancing soldiers.

If any enemy Hungarian ground forces were within range, the Milanese troops would stop and fire artillery barrages to slow their advance, with the goal of limiting their movement to target them from the air. They would be corralled into large groups and destroyed handily, with multiple rocket launchers and howitzers ensuring the destruction of armored units. The Hungarians were expected to suffer significant casualties and hopefully have their advance into Alvonia slowed, if not halted. Where impossible to halt the advance, the Milanese would attempt to divide the Hungarians, forcing them south away from Vienna and towards the Mediterranean.

Positions in Trentino, Venezia, and several other important areas near the Alvonian border would see operation by approximately 50,000 other active duty soldiers, working in tandem with the Carabinieri and Republican Guard to maintain order and provide intelligence to the troops on the ground. The scattered and disorganized, but large Hungarian force would be easy to track, and the Milanese navy with aircraft and missile assets would be stationed near Venezia where they would fire into Hungary across Milanese land.

Casualties

The Milanese were subject to missile barrage from the Hungarians, which seemed to be concentrated in the Italian north-east. Casualties have not yet been counted, but the Milanese government estimates that several thousand of the Carabinieri and Republican Guard troops in the area have been exterminated. A lack of systematic targeting meant that many civilian targets, such as factories, were destroyed. Building damages are in the tens of millions of dollars, and civilian casualties have been estimated to be in the low tens of thousands. Railway destruction was largely ineffective, although several civilian railway buildings would be destroyed. The majority of the missiles would be shot down, but the barrages nevertheless struck fear into the Milanese residents, who have been ordered to evacuate the area. This would hamper Milanese reinforcements over the next several days as roads were clogged with fleeing civilians. An extensive, free public camp system in central Italy would house these persons, although several hundred have already been killed with thousands more injured. Moving into a "war economy" was expected to help cushion the economic impact.
