OOC: This thread is for a number of military technology projects I will be starting and completing for my nation. Any problems or suggestions you have can be sent by PM to me, please do not post OOC here. Also everything is classified unless otherwise stated.

Ground Combat:

Gauss weaponary

Scientists and engineers have recently been given the funding and direction required into experimenting with and creating gauss weaponary. Gauss weaponary is almost the same as a railgun in that it uses a magnetic field to shoot a projectile at incredible velocity. Velocity is directly proportional to barrel length for the projectile being fired. Due to the energy requirements and size of the weapon this weaponary will if successful only be employed in large naval vessels and ground turret emplacements.

Needlers

A new weapon system being designed and experimented with is the needler class weapon. The needler uses compressed gas held in cylinders to fire a metal dart into the target at a high velocity, a system is being made for a full needle suit which will include the weapon, gas cylinder and a compression system for reloading the cylinders once they are empty. This weapon will most likely be used for infantry purposes only.

Aerial

Unmanned Combat Drones

To limit the human losses experienced on the battlefield Helzan teams are working on producing Unmanned Combat Drones (UCD's). These drones would be controlled by mobile command vehicles that would control the drones as they engaged the enemy forces. The drones would be lightly armoured but highly maneuverable so that they can hit the enemy and they retreat. Current weapon systems include, a three thousand round machine gun, two hellfire missiles or a laser designator for guiding in missile strikes.

Anti-Nordlandic protests have finally been brought to an end resulting in fourteen deaths, over one hundred injured and a record breaking thousand plus arrests. Those arrested will face justice in the courts for dangerous behavior and possible intent to harm and kill. Sandra Klein released a statement saying that she condemed the protests and asks for the Nordlandic community to not take any sort of revenge and leave justice for the courts.

By order of Sandra Klein the nation of Helzan is closed to all foreign nationals except for Eggman occupation troops. This order will continue until such time as Sandra Klein withdraws it.

Due to reports of mass nuclear weapon discharges near the Middle East Sandra Klein has ordered the construction of a number of Fallout shelters for the population. Simply named Vaults and under construction by the company Vault-Tec every family and single person is being put into a random draw for a place in the vaults.

"Good thing for me I'm now officially a citizen," Westly Davies mused to himself when he heard Sandra's plans concerning foreign nationals.

He then resumed reading the report from one of his agents. Having friendly contacts in his former nation really helped keep the efforts of the NDA to glean information non-violent...

Due to the fact that the nation of Helzan has no standing navy, Sandra Klein has ordered the construction of twenty HN Torpedo Boats. Whilst useless in open sea engagements in the close quarters of the Helzan waterways they could prove very deadly against hostile naval forces. Their speed and the natural twists and turns would prove to be their best defense. An photograph has been taken of one of the prototypes that they will be built off of.

Plans are now underway for a space program to be designed and produced for the nation of Helzan, due to the technological expertise required we are offering a financial reward to those nations that possess a working space program to assist us in our attempt.

"Promised Land would offer its help, but it would be highly impractical as we are on opposite sides of the world. Nevertheless, if no other nation steps forward, we will offer our expertise."

"It would not be impractical. This is the modern world and locations can be accessed to in hours or a few days at most. Any help whether it is equipment or personal or even information would be appreciated".

"Very well. We can supply the personel and information. It was mostly the equipment we referred to when we said it was impractical."

A search for volunteers for this program was enacted. Any possible shortages would be made up for by drafting military workers. Individuals range from the scientists who designed the shuttles, to actual astronauts, to train those Helzan individuals who would go into space.

Each person would carry the necessary information on their person, or in their luggage.

The following photo has been released showing a mock up of what the space launch system will look like once completed. Though the system looks real it is fully non-functional and is only being used for measurements and for a general feel of what the system will work and look like. Construction on the real launch platform will begin shortly after final measurements and testing is complete.

Work continues on the space program though the rising costs of the project are putting the entire project behind schedule and no report has been released of when the project will be getting back on track.

Military scientists are currently attempting to gather as many different diseases and viruses as possible from around the globe. Teams have been sent out to those nations in which their territory was either once rife with disease or is currently experiencing diseases. All collected samples are being stored in a secret Military base built for such needs.

"If Helzan needs further assistance with the Space Program, we can provide limited funds."

OOC: Also, I need a bump in our thread...I still need to RP the signature, after all. :D

"A decision has been reached that the space program is to be halted for the moment in time. Construction will continue at some later point in time".

OOC: Not getting a space program as soon as I thought :P

Updates to the Helzan military have began to modernise them so that they can function as effectively as best as they can. Changes have been made to the weapons, armour and uniform of the Helzan armed forces.

After a long and hard look at the state of the nation's defenses new measures are to be taking place to make the nation of Helzan into a fortress nation. The opening steps shall involve the construction of sea mines which will be used to block almost all routes of entry to the nation by sea as well as the construction of batteries of dual barreled 750mm weapon emplacements across the coastline. Funding and construction time do place limits on the speed of completion but results are expected to be positive.

Below is a diagram showing the new defenses. Solid blue blocks are where the cannon batteries will be placed and solid blue circles are where the minefields shall be placed.

We recognize any nation's right to secure itself from invasion.

OOC: That won't interfere with Arctica's transition routes though, right?

And should I start sending those troops in here? I'm thinking it would be better to simply start another thread, but it's your choice.
