"Sir, we are taking a great risk here, only selling to one side..."

"My name is on that treaty, just because we are not a nation doesn't mean we cannot contribute. Besides, I have taken the needed precautions to keep this secret. Unless they can see though several meters of concrete, we're fine." Rebeu chuckled and lit a cigarette, "Have you sent the message?"

"Yes sir, we sent a request for a Nordic-Stockholder meeting to discuss the current war and it's possible effects on the business and to discuss possible re-evaluations of the synergy in our framework of initiatives. Completely innocent corporate babble."

"Beautiful, buzz my office when they arrive, the lawyers have been killing me with paperwork lately."

OOC: Anyone in the Nordic Confederacy can come, it's on the Mariehamm Arms HQ in Mariehamm on the Aland Islands. I plan to reveal a new tank. No need to send leaders or anything, just representatives.

Response to the Message sent to the Union:

Obviously, His Imperial Highness Emperor Alexander I is far too busy to attend this meeting. However, three representatives from each of the top five arms manufacturing companies in the Union, as well as Heinrich Kirk, who is the Imperial Officer in charge of managing Arms contracts, shall attend.

They would be escorted from the airport to the large concrete fortress-city of Mariehamm. It was a drab city, the large seaport filled will tall cranes and cargo ships. The entire city was made from poured concrete or large concrete blocks, metal, cables, and wires spread throughout the city. Outer walls were easily 2 meters thick, as seen by the indents in the walls for windows.

They would pass though a checkpoint, metal detectors, whatever they brought with them was x-rayed. They were brought into enormous room, large cargo doors on all sides. Rebeu walked up, "Welcome to the exact center of the Mariehamm factory complex, the end of the production line where things are shipped out. Today, you will see the rebirth of the Steinhammer series, the tanks used by the Ubersteinian military to the very day of their forced disarmament. They made it to the Steinhammer D, though the world never saw it in action because of it's low production numbers and the short time it was in service. We decided to build on this concept, and have created the Steinhammer-E. The world needs more than a Main Battle Tank...."

In a cliche dramatic way, one of the doors opened at the far end of the room, bright light and fog poured out. A behemoth of a tank rolled out, 4.3 meters tall, 9.5 meters long, and 5.1 meters wide.

It turned it's turret, and raised the gun, stopping in the middle of the room.

"It needs a king of the battlefield. With a 128mm gun with a barrel length of 5.5 meters, it can pierce the armor of any tank using sabot rounds. Using a patented quad-bar torsion bar suspension, it's weight of 90 tons is distributed evenly, lighter than expected thanks to brilliant weight management and composite armor. While it is currently equipped with rubberized fabric tracks for the factory, we plan to give them standard metal tracks for combat. Due to the design, we can even increase the size of the bore to up to 150 mm, allowing us to produce versions that can use your own shells. While right now it doesn't have reactive armor, I can assure you we have reactive block 'battle dress' for it. It's height allows it to shoot over many obstacles, allowing it to provide medium range direct fire support, and it's crew of 6 makes sure nobody is overworked. It's rear periscope can elevate 500mm, allowing it to rise above the cupola turret and view the battlefield even if your satellites are knocked out. It can go 40 mph, or about 65 km/h fully loaded. Any questions?" Rebeu lit a cigarette.

He seemed to remember something, and offhandedly commented, "Now I will give a warning, tests have shown that this tank needs to work together with anti-helicopter units and infantry to work at 100%."

(OOC: Finland is my seat of Gov >.> and if i was to give up territory it would be for new players.)

OOC: Comeon, I'll give you a big discount, all of that. I just hate having that lump stick into my country. Discuss it more over PM's instead of here.

(OOC: Big discount? Selling you the seat of Gov and the royal city? I better be getting a buy one, get 10,000 free deal for that...)

OOC: Where the heck is your city, in the middle of a swampland? O_o

"Nordheim would like to purchase ten of these to see just how well - or bad - they do over at the current battle fronts. If they do well, we would order more."

"Wonderful, if you follow the aid over there, he will take you out to the covered lot to personally pick which ones you want from out current batch. Oh, and I suggest you wear your sunglasses if you have any, the architect said that we needed a 'white glowing room' for selling our tanks, and I find it can be quite blinding to enter without protection."

OOC: It's like a car dealer only all the cars are the same and they are tanks! :awesome:

Also, that was a damn high poly picture to make, and like hell i'm not going to use it. :P
