With the fall of Aotorea Pacific Ocean is no longer barred for other navies. In the confusion of reclamation and resettling the Third Submarine Squadron of Z class Attack Submarines are roaming the hitherto barred sectors of the ocean.

At several strategic points on the ocean floor teams of MARCOS are venturing out to place specialized monitoring equipments. Where the ocean is too deep for divers and the submarines the W class submarines are venturing out.

The W class submarines are the latest addition of Royal Cochin Navy. A deep submersible only 5 have been built in all so far and do not figure in the regular TOE. They are always escorted by a crack team of Midget Submarines.

The instruments are designed to capture ELF chatter and passive sonar transients from the surrounding ocean.

EDIT: Due to correction of numbers.

On the 5 launch pads at this ultra secure launch facility, 5 massive GSLV rockets are waiting for launch protocol. Each launch pad is separated by a distance of 10 Km forming a pentagon. At the eye of the pentagon the control tower is located.

Today's launches are not the regular civilian payload. In fact all 5 launches and all the 20 payloads belong to RCDF, Strategic Command.

As the Director of the facility watched on one by one the 5 Geo Stationary Launch Vehicles blasted off from earth at one hour intervals. Strangely, this time the time of launch is especially important, hence the hasty launch.

As the rockets reached their programmed altitude 37000 km from Earth, the payloads were ejected, 4 GEOSATs each were deployed from each rocket and they started their gradually moving towards their programmed locations.

Each of the satellites were programmed to occupy a specific geostationary point above the earth.

The evolution shall take a total of 48 hours to complete, by which Royal Cochin Defense Forces shall have a comprehensive surveillance over the Pacific Ocean, an orbit till then denied to everyone by Greater Aotorea.

*All around the Pacific*

The Konpekitai, which has stationed three aircraft carrier fleets around Micronesia, picks up strange signals on its MAD. Messages are sent out to the Pax Pacifica members, and currently all anti-submarine aircrafts are on alert, to sink potentially hostile underwater forces.

ooc: What are the readings indicating Sumeragi? The Sensors? The subs? I doubt they'd be large enough to show up on sonar and chances are an electronics driven sensor would not have any engines or noise-generating parts.. therefore even more unlikely to show up on Sonar. If it's ELF radio intercept equipment it just has to sit there and do its job. Additionally, what does MAD stand for? Military Active.. Detection?

Researching magnetic anomaly detectors as you described on IRC. I don't think you're going to find the sensors given how small they are in comparison to the other magnetic fields that would normally show up on the sea floor. Subs yes, sensor pods, not likely.

The whiffs from Konpekitai had indeed been generated from the midget subs in the area. Though highly maneuvrable and very fast, these Mark. 1 models are lightly stealthed.

The increase in active pinging from the bearing of Konpekitai had alerted the mid sub crews and they had crept away alternating between various thermal layers to throw off any active pursuit.

A MERAT is flying in from Cochin to Vladivostok. It has filed its cargo as regular resupply materials to the RCN fleet based here.

However on reaching Vladivostok Air Base, the MERAT is met by Hanseatic Commonwealth troops. Taxiing to an isolated hangar, the cargo bay opens to reveal several large crates, specialized ones to transport sensitive electronic equipments.

The crates are manhandled by the soldiers under the supervision of the Rear Admiral Commanding RCN's Cruiser Task Force 09 and his aides. Once the last crate is loaded onto the attending trucks the convoy sets off led by the trucks and followed by the Rear Admiral and RCN sailors in a couple of unmarked sedans.

The Cruiser Task Force 07 has sailed into the Gosree Naval Base and its flagship CNS Endeavor is steaming to Bay 23, one of the covered docks. Meanwhile sailors on the deck are finishing up their duties and packing their bags for 2 weeks of shore time during which the Cruiser will be getting some routine maintenance.

However there was nothing routine about the armed Marines standing guard in the ship's magazine.

Usually a cruiser in Royal Cochin Navy would have its normal complement of sailors plus Strategic Command officials to oversee the nuclear warheads for the SRBMs and cruise missiles.

But Marines on Strategic Command duty standing guard was a first for this warship.

As the ship docked and the bemused sailors went up the cavernous dock, the magazine bay of the Cruiser opened up to disgorge some special cargo. A movable crane picked up the crates one by one as the Marines inside assisted them until finally all 25 crates had been loaded into 4 Tatra trucks standing by the dock. As the last crate was being manhandled into the truck's bay the Captain commanding the Marine team came up to the dock and handed over a file to the Royal Cochin Army Colonel who received it. With that the Captain retreated to the ship to collect his men and get some much needed sleep.

They had not slept much since they boarded the ship at Ratnagiri.

Now the Colonel signaled his men to get moving. The 4 trucks were joined by 2 Axe jeeps. The Colonel boarded his personal jeep and the convoy set off.

Since Gosree is a military city normal vicissitudes of civilian areas did not affect anybody. Military police in intersections cleared the way for this high profile convoy and there were no extraneous journalists to take any undue notice. The convoy left Gosree City and set out northwards to the Regimental base of the 8th Armored Cavalry Regiment. The Royal Wodeyar Cavalry is the principal defender of the Baloch Province. The convoy by passed the regimental headquarters and set off to the Armory. Here the Colonel was met by the Major General commanding the Regiment. The Strategic Command trained Colonel handed over the files to the general and the hardened crates were taken inside the underground Armory.

With the arrival of these crates the next stage in Scorched Earth Policy pertaining to Baloch Province will be completed. 5 of the crates contained 10 GBX43 50KT Gravity Bombs which would be installed in select places around the Province to administer a crushing blow at whatever invading force ever came past the borders. 18 crates contained a total of 90 tactical artillery shells varying from 20T to 1KT. The remaining 2 crates contained 2 C50 Cruise Missile warheads of 500 KT.

The Armory shall now be guarded with a special guards detachment from Strategic Command.

TO: Strategic Reconnaissance Agency (Strategic Command),

National Reconnaissance Agency (RCPF)

FROM: Director,

National Intelligence Agency

Due to certain unusual events reconnaissance data is required of the following coordinates 27d45'N, 18d W . The location belongs to a certain neighbor of the Kingdom and is suspected to host classified military operations. Analysis of activities here would provide vital intelligence regarding capabilities and intentions of the said neighbor.


Lt. Gen. Mahesh B Iyer.

The Forward air bases around this Pavlodar has been on an increased patrol regimen for almost a month, it shall also continue for a few more weeks. The increased alert levels also precluded any chances of interference or reconnaissance by foreign services.

On this cloud covered night ( Meteorologists were right for this one) the Hangar 02 opened up its cavernous doors. The oddly shaped aircraft was towed out awkwardly by a truck and the aircraft slowly taxied up to flight quarters.

The runway used by this aircraft was a full 6 km long. The extra length was manifestly required for the purpose of the aircraft. One by one the eight monstrous GAL RE350 engines started lighting off. In terms of range this flight would be a short one, but the Halob would have to go beyond the margins of safety regarding its operational ceiling. Slowly and ungainly the Halob tipped its brakes and started its take off roll. The extra weight of the Halob ensured that lift off required fully 4.5 kms of tarmac.

The aircraft was met by another Halob at 30000 ft , this one an aerial refueling tanker. The monstrous transport aircraft gluttonously drank up the fuel and finally disengaged from the tanker for its mission.

The aircraft set out on a shallow climb, its engines on full military power. It however did not stop at 50000ft its designated flight ceiling. The senior Colonel and Lt. Colonel flying this particular flight carefully watched the altimeter snaking upwards slowly now at the extremes of the aircraft's capability. At 60000 ft the climb rate was becoming virtually zero and hence the pilot initiated the after burner and the increased thrust further propelled the monstrous plane on its climb rate. The ungainly shape of this particular flight certainly did not help at all in aerodynamics. At 80000 ft finally the aircraft had reached mission altitude. Now the Colonel took full manual controls and started initiating a procedure that he had done hundreds of time in simulators and dozens of time in practice runs but which he was still distinctly jittery about. After all he was flying a transport aircraft, a trash hauler for all its sophistication and not a nifty fighter plane.

While the Colonel was controlling the Halob the Lt. Col was monitoring the instruments. However in the aft section even more high ranking officials were sitting. At a command from the senior scientist on board a sergeant started the Disengagement sequence.

The second aircraft sitting piggy back upon the Halob started its engine sequence, the three huge rocket assisted boosters kicking into force. At the moment when the propeller was threatening to be the propelled a number of shot gun type sounds came through the Halob's bodies. Teh xploding charges disengaged the PUSHPAK from the Halob. Once it was finally disengaged the Colonel took the Halob on a deep dive which left the passengers praying for the structural stability of their seat belts. The Colonel breathed back only after descending through 35000 ft and being 10 km away from the aircraft it had launched on the opposite bearing.

Meanwhile another Halob nearby was controlling the Pushpak. The aircraft was soaring up through the power of 2 solid state boosters which had kicked in after the Halob descended. The boosters propelled the Pushpak to 360000 Ft where the boosters were disengaged and fell back to earth. The aircraft loitered in the outer atmosphere for some time while the technicians and scientists on the second Halob frantically monitored the telemetry signals and other vital parameters. The bird was performing splendidly!!

Finally order was given to initiate the landing sequence. The control team in the Halon relayed instructions to the Pushpak and slowly the aircraft started descending. At the altitude of 150000 ft engines were cut off to simulate full glider landing. The aero dynamic shape and the wide delta wings ensured that the Pushpak glided down gracefully. Finally at 30000 ft the engines were re lit for a powered landing. As the Pushpak touched down on the Runway 2 at Flight Test Center, Pavlodar three high tension speed breaker chutes were deployed to rapidly arrest the forward motion. Finally the unmanned aircraft rolled to a stop.

The applause that erupted in the Halob was echoed in scores of offices and laboratories across the Kingdom.

The Kingdom of Cochin now has a viable Space Shuttle.

Tesla Control Center


"Okay, TSD1 is now generating full power. What is the attenuation at Rectenna, Karagandy?"

"Sir, attenuation is 3%."

"Okay initiate Turn Sequence."

38000 kilometers above the TSD1 started a sequence of turn maneuvres. Motors on the satellite started rotating the Power Transmitting Antenna on the satellite for a complete 180 degrees. In this maneuvre lasting 20 minutes the transmitter of the TSD1 would face away from earth.

When the turn sequence was completed the operator said, "Okay, now raise the Orbiter."

The signal to do so went from the TCC antennas to the LEO communication satellites which then transmitted it into the GEO communications satellites stationed above Cochin. The COMSATs in GEO orbit started sending out sounding signals to raise the Orbiter which was in another Geo Synchronous Orbit albeit in a drastically different setting. The COMSAT which received the authentication from the Orbiters return signal transmitted the signal from TCC, in a procedure which took about 10 seconds from the moment signal was generated at TCC.

"Sir, we have raised Orbiter."

"Initiate transmission from TSD1."

The TSD1 started transmission of power in the microwave spectrum. The Orbiter's sensors was seeking out the characteristics of the signal. No substantial power could be received by Orbiter but the procedure could validate whether power sent from TSD1 could reach Orbiter.

"Sir, Orbiter acknowledges solid signal strength. Transmission is working with minimal attenuation."

"Okay now raise the Rover. Check if Rover is receiving signals from TSD1."

At the receipt of this signal the Orbiter sent out a message to the Rover to which it had been in contact ever since it started its operation. The signal from Orbiter caused the Rover to deploy its own rectenna which would collect any energy being transmitted by TSD1.

"Sir, Rover confirms that power from TSD1 is reaching it. Do we let TSD1 transmit on the present bearing."

"No point its transmission back to earth. Rover can take care on its own. It has its own solar panels. And that is yet another aspect of Project Antrix which is a success."

LPSAC is monitoring the signal analysis from the feed from the antenna farm and the electronic intelligence satellites in Geostationary Orbit over Gangothri. The intense signal traffic between Dranagg and the rest of the world is being noted and decrypted by the BDH550 500 TFLOPS supercomputer developed by Tratum Infosystems Pvt Ltd.

The signal analysis has caused the Gangothri Defense Command to increase alert levels for the border defense systems in place in Gangothri.

The Special cargo had come to RCNB Ratnagiri from Cochin via trains. The 8900 kms worth of cables were brought in a spacial train guarded by an elite team of RCSF Commandos. These cables were constructed as a joint partnership of Quarter Master Command and the Varma Institute forf Fundamental Research and were straight away loaded on to the two cable laying ships CNS Jyoti and CNS Jwala. The Task Force 14 (Cruiser) deployed out of Ratnagiri for convoy protection on Gangotri route was maintaining station at harbor mouth.

Once the CNS Jyoti was loaded the work started. Its first run was to Male, an island part of Dragonisia. The convoy set out in a box formation to protect the cable ship and to prevent any hostile interference. While half of the task force commanded by Cruiser CNS Billiere (CR15) maintained watch over CNS Jyoti the other half of the task force commanded by Cruiser CNS Sekhon (CR16) was formed around CNS Jwala at Ratnagiri to start their sail when CNS Jyoti reached halfway point.

Meanwhile at deeper strata, the SBY class attack submarines of First Submarine Squadron were staking out the ocean floor on a large uneven pattern to deter any hostile submarine presence.

As the half point mark neared the CNS Jwala group started making the speed run. Linking up of the two cable sets were done aboard CNS Jwala where the terminal blocks were handed over by CNS Jyoti whence it returned to Ratnagiri where it would be handed over to the Varma Mercantile Limited for use as a commercial cable layer for servicing the under sea communication networks.

Finally after a mission lasting 2 months CNS Jwala made landfall at Naval Base Gangothri where the final blocks of the cables were taken to the monitoring station at this end.

Weeks of calibration and testing are still pending however the Dragon Empire SOSUS is now a physical reality.

Ever since the abbreviated visit to Curristan Task Force 09 has been playing a very safe game. Never coming within 300 Nautical miles of any coast, the ships of the task force are sailing in reduced emission control mode. The massive radars on the 2 cruisers are working in a passive mode. Prairie Masker systems for masking the blade cavitation is fully employed the SBX Attack submarine in the task force is patrolling the seas ahead of the surface ships while the midget submarines are patrolling further out. The Blackhawk helicopters of the ships are also doing their own minesweeping duties. They trail the Magnetic Anomaly Detector along the path to be followed by the cruisers.

Beneath the deck technicians are fine tuning the navigational systems for the KUB Cruise Missiles and GS12 Ballistic Missiles they hold. Rough targetting information for various strategic points of the enemy are being conveyed to the Task Force by Strategic Command and NIA. In the ship's magazine some Marines stand guard the 4 C25 warheads that everybody pray wont be used.

The air defense crew in all ships are currently running a practice simulation involving a massive air attack on the task force. The SD and AIM missiles are also being tested for any random operational failure. The Captains had informed the crew, they were sailing into harm's way, a battle could develop at any time and they were far away from their homes.

Their task force was currently the only RCN unit in Atlantic Ocean though that could change very soon, they were informed. The Carrier Task Forces and Cruiser Task Forces were assembling now for rapid sailing if shooting war develops.

The Strategic Reconnaissance Agency has the job not only to monitor sensitive places on earth through satellites and other platforms but also to monitor other satellites in the space. The SRA maintains a database of all the satellites in orbit over any point on earth at any point in time. Thus it provides a series of data about 4 dimensional blank points, places which would be under zero satellite reconnaissance at some times. This data is particularly useful to the naval task forces currently deployed which have a vital need to avoid hostile detection.

The SRA also collaborates with CSRO to study weather phenomena in various parts of the world. The RCN prefers to send its units through stormy seas and adverse weather conditions as such a weather , though neutral, offers special opportunities for RCN. The Task Force 09 currently in harm's way in Atlantic Ocean is currently going through such a stormy condition.
