-Dranaggan international issues update-

50 companies of BZ-RK, semi-autonomous elite fighting force, have left Dranagg for the duration of the coming Antarctic winter. All nations are being advised of this departure.

Their ships left less than 4 hours ago from Port Dranagg, and will be some of the last surface vessels to leave the port for the rest of the year.

::BZ-RK 18th infantry company transport leaving the ice flows.::

This is an active fighting force. The BZ-RK annually send out their newest recuits, along with some veterans, and look for warfare. This announcment is to inform nations of their possibility of showing up in random theaters of combat, or creating their own. Dranaggan authorities have no command or control of this group while they are abroad beyond simple suggestion and favors. No more than any other nation has. (OOC: cept I still RP them :lol:).

Nations interested in dealing with the group should do so quickly, before they have marked their own targets.

Are these forces interested in, perhaps, wargames instead of actual conflict?

OOC: This could become the test of Uberstein's proposed war system...

From what information Dranaggan authorities may release about the BZ-RK the answer is. No.

They are going to be looking for combat. Not the illusion of it. Really its like their selection process. If you don't make it, you don't get to be a BZ-RK.

"They chose a rather bad time to look for combat... given the 329432904th war in Europe just came to an end."

I suppose the 329432905th war will have to do. Or the several new ones around the world that are just about to go full blown already.

Of course we also included the warning that lacking a suitible war they will find their own trouble. If every BZ-RK trooper comes back from their winter away, which has never happened, then it would be considered a failure to the BZ-RK. They are trolling for war.

Be warned.

Dranaggan authorities are unsure if the BZ-RK care or not. Probably not.

So they are not aggressively looking for war. They are looking for a nice soft target to kill and feel good about. They have no real steel, and this is no more than a live fire exercise, the target carefully selected to pose no real threat.

Elite indeed.

The truth of the matter is there is no knowing if care who they invade, what the promise of battle is, or if there will be battle at all. Dranaggan authorities have no knowledge of what the 50 companies will do outside of the nation.

The only thing certain is they will fight someone, sometime, and within the span of the Antarctic winter. More than likely they will hit someone they think is a challenge.

Considering that the ships are slow, and they left only a day ago, I would say they wouldn't be attacking anyone right now.

"If any of our warships come across their ships, they'll be sunk on sight. If they are seen in our lands, they will be shot without questions. It's not like they'll give us any kind of trouble."

So you just realized a fully autonomous self motivated mercenary force on the world? This is state sponsored terrorism, and Glorious Aotearoa condemns it. We call upon other nations to set an embargo on Dranagg for the period that these monsters are out on the piracy raid. We also call upon nations with waters near the antarctic to pool a portion of our navies to actively seek these war criminals and prevent this rogue state from causing any harm.

The world will not tolerate actions like this, and your defense of this cadre of murderers shows the level of the sponsoring of this terrorist cell that the government of your country gives.

If they come near Molakia....Our newly produced F1 Fighters will enjoy the chance to use their Shiny Anti-Ship missles out.

Wouldn't the missles cost more than the ships?

"If any of our warships come across their ships, they'll be sunk on sight. If they are seen in our lands, they will be shot without questions. It's not like they'll give us any kind of trouble."

We wish luck in the endevor, its not easy to find them. Though we'd prefer to get our ships back. The BZ-RK simply take the largest commerce ships Dranagg owns, since we cant use them in winter, and uses them as transport.

Of course anything is better than the infamous year they got to the ice port, and invaded there instead.

:The transport fleet:

Out in the Southern Antarctic sea the transport fleet begins to break up. Like flows of ice small groups head in all directions.

Mercenaries are paid to kill, this group doesn't care about money. Terrorists have a political or economic agenda, these BZ-RK only seek war experience.

As for Defending a cadre of murderers. It is rather the other way around. A cadre of murderers defends us. Why? We're not sure, but why go against free military.

The Glorious Aotearoan Navy shall seek and destroy this group of terrorists. They are a group of terrorists, as they inspire terror. If you you knew that a 50 companies of murderers were sailing the seas looking for someone to kill, then you would be terrified to.

So, in the interests of World Security, and because Lord LeVentNoir despises groups like this, Glorious Aotearoa will give them the war they are looking for.

**Movements**

Satellite scans are busy looking for ships leaving Dranagg. Large commercial ships are given priority. Once located, aircraft will be dispatched to intercept and destroy it.

To provide for the planes, the aircraft carrier stationed at the NZ sub antarctic islands is sailing south with a pair of Supercruisers. CAPs are in the air, and heavy bomber support from the islands is available.

Locks on all the ships should be gained within a few hours.

:Stuff in Dranaggan waters:

142 ships currently in Antarctic Ocean waters near Dranagg that fit the weight class, or larger, of the BZ-RK ships.

Every ten minutes another ship of similar size, or greater, is leaving Port Dranagg for open ocean.

Also Dragonisian transport submarines are in the area in unreported numbers.

Two large cruise liner type ships are near the Ross Ice Shelf.

Additionally several large packs of sea ice are starting to grow off the ice shelf itself, and waves are breaking them into pieces. Sizes range from tiny, marble sized, to ice chunks larger than a oil tanker.

No significant number of Ice Bergs from the ice shelf itself.

Aotearoan SIAC ignores the blatant propaganda from Dranagg, as the BZ-RK ships are the largest commerce ships they own,

The BZ-RK simply take the largest commerce ships Dranagg owns,

and hence, submarines, oil tankers and liners will not be targeted. With the large heat signatures of any ship in the cold waters, localization has been achieved, and imagery is working to isolate pictures of these ships.

**Movements**

Start target list from largest commercial ship and work down in size. Ignore transport submarines, and non transport capable surface vessels. ANAC-04 nearing strike range against the northernmost ships. Targets undergoing final confirmation.

OOC: that wasnt a IC reply. That was what anyone that happened to LOOK at the antarctic ocean near dranagg would see. Its called "You did spy stuff. Here is what you can find!"

Since Dranaggan authorities claim to have no jurisdiction over the BZ-RK but they still shelter and probably fund them, the BZ-RK will be considered mercenaries. As mercenaries, if they cause any trouble in our territory or on our shipping, we will consider it an act of war by Dranagg. You cannot send out your soldiers claiming they are not working for you and expect no consequences when they make trouble.

Also as mercenaries, if they are found disrupting any of our interests, they will likely not be allowed to surrender or will be executed shortly afterward, as we don't normally afford humane treatment to combatants not under a flag.

The only thing you have succeeded in doing is invite foreign navies to randomly sink your commercial shipping in the hopes that they hit the BZ-RK. The drawbacks to letting your mercenaries wander outweigh the benefits of any experience they will receive.

------

Somewhere in a government building in Arctica, on a slow day, a few office workers with phones, calculators, and computers casually attempt to ascertain the location and destination of the BZ-RK. Having nothing else to work from, they work from the claims Dranagg has made. They start by checking the time the announcement was made, going back four hours and placing calls to Port Dranagg authorities requesting any publicly available information on their schedules, specifically recent departures. If that succeeded, they would contact their own country's intelligence services and request a few satellite images of the area surrounding Port Dranagg, as the distance of Dranagg from any airbases prevented sending a spy plane. They marked any ships that left roughly four hours ago (given current distance from Port Dranagg and likely speed) and any ships that looked like the one in the image so graciously provided by the announcement.

OOC: okay this is going to take a bit of explaining since I need to clear up what the BZ-RK are. Firstly they arnt mercenaies. Yes they are sheltered in Dranagg, but if they were removed then they would probably kill as many Dranaggans as possible. However since they get that shelter they would defend Dranagg from invaders.

The reason they are in Dranagg is, if the old forums had not been killed, they really WERE old time mercenaires, and, since armies need replacements, they were forced to create a nation. They picked the worst spot possible for people to live, so they could get survivors, and then started hand picking the survivors out of survivors. If that makes sense.

This armed force they sent out is to get the survivors of the survivors. First they live in ice hell, then they train in ice hell, then they just fight in hell. Except they all arnt socially deprived like child soldiers :P

IC

:Intel arctica would get:(if anyone else wants it RP getting it. Don't just say "Spy odds " and call it a day)

Satalites: same as before. Lots of heavy shipping. Note that not ALL of the large commercial ships are Dranaggan, but there is little to distinguish which ship is which. This is due to ice forming on explosed surfaces of the ships from sea spray.

Ships 4 hours from port: none of the BZ-RK ships (since I advanced them already to older than a days departure and splintered their fleet even before LVN started looking)

::Info from the Port Authorities to Arctica::

3000 armed BZ-RK arrived at the Port two nights ago. They immediately claimed 50 large transport ships owned by Dranagg and took World Wide Aid supplys for several months. The slowest ship can make 8 knots in medium seas. The fastest was a yet to be sea trialed transport. Estimated at 17 knots in medium seas.

Courses were unknown, and they did not take Harbour patrol guides out of the ice. Only known course is out of the Ross Sea, (aka Northish direction), and then no contact.

::end intel that arctica finds:

Dranagg is sorry to hear such a harsh response from Arctica. We have no say in what the BZ-RK do once they do it. As we said before one year they attacked our own Harbour. We do shelter the, but we do not pay them. They provide either protection, or war, to us. Logically we picked the free protection rather than fight ten thousand armed troopers. They run their own arms factory, and even dug their own HQ somewhere in the Shackelton Range. We are not sure where, but after the power plant was completed they took all of the mining equipment for the project. Since we do not know what the BZ-RK already own, we don't know any accurate estimates of how much they might have done.

The only reason we can tell anyone this, is the BZ-RK wouldn't care if a fight broke out over them. They just enjoy warfare.

Is it mercenaries in general you do not like, or mercenaries under no flag? Artemis, which I remind you is a part of the 2PAC, is a mercenary NATION.

OOC: Tahsir, the verbal attacks are in-character. I understand what they are.

IC: You shelter them and you allow them to go out and make trouble while claiming they are not part of your regular military force. So either they are mercenaries working for Dranagg or you harbor terrorists. Either they are part of the regular military, Dranaggan-backed irregulars, or unaffiliated with you. It is not the last one and you have repeatedly claimed it is not the first. There is only one option left.

To Promised Land: You seem to have an agenda against African nations. First the attack on Artemis, now you are twisting words to make it look like Arctica has something against our ally.. Arctica does not have it out for mercenaries; we would not object to hiring them ourselves if the need arose. We simply stated in clear terms to Dranagg what would happen if their irregulars stirred up trouble with us, as they don't seem to understand what does and does not constitute an act of war. If the BZ-RK continues to avoid us and our allies, we have no problem with Dranagg.

As the matter of the fact is that these are not regular soldiers in the employment of any nation nor are they mercenaries in the employment of any company the Government of the United States of North America has formally decided to label this a terrorist group. All Dranaggan ships that enter our territorial waters will be searched. Any USNA warship that encounters a Dranaggan vessel will board it if it is determined that members of this terrorist group are on the vessel. We suggest that the Dranaggan government reign in this organization to preserve it's image among the nations of the world. I am sure that the rest of the world feels the same on this matter.

Secretary of State,

Colon Powers

No one is twisting words here but you. You twist our words. We have nothing against Africa in general, nor really any particular nation in it. We have apologized to Artemis and offered to repair the damage done! And our question was one of honest curiosity and no little confusion, not condemnation. Please read between the lines next time.
