JEDCJT Posted April 30, 2010 Report Share Posted April 30, 2010 [b]OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT[/b] We have received information from our sources that the Nos Tre Republik had been planning to declare war on the Federated States in support of the Northern Republic and the Slavic Federation, and we cannot in good common sense let this threat materialize. With that, we hereby undertake what we term a preventative measure. [b]ACTIONS[/b] With this, Secretary of Defense Robert M. Gates ordered Operation [b]ROLLING THUNDER[/b] to be commenced. Approximately 90,000 troops were withdrawn from the GLS (Gates had privately informed the Disparuean government about this) and deployed through New England to the FRA region, where the troops were immediately sent to the NTR border. The troops were also accompanied by 2,000 Abrams and Panther tanks, as well as an equal number of IFVs, self-propelled howitzers, and military vehicles—all from the GLS. In addition, ten squadrons of fighters and interceptors (240 aircrafts) and five squadrons of bombers (120 aircrafts) were diverted from the Florida border to the NTR. The troops also brought artillery guns, missile launchers, and other equipment with them. Once everything was in place, ROLLING THUNDER began. All aircrafts lifted up into the air, where they soon filled the skies above southern NTR. The bombers, making a beeline for the major cities of Columbia, Charleston, and many others, proceeded to drop their payload upon any NTR troop formations, military bases and installations, and anything of strategic value (civilian areas such as residential areas were to be avoided) as to clear the way for the troops. At roughly the same time, about fifty missiles were launched into the air, where they cruised toward Canfrutarn, Charleston, Myrtle Beach, Sumter, and other cities; they were not only to disrupt and/or destroy NTR troop formation, but also military bases and installations, dams, bridges, roads, etc. Civilian areas, however, were left alone as per the norm. The NTR capital, however, was particularly targeted; its government buildings were the targets of the FSA’s wrath. Finally, as the aircrafts and missiles were flying through the air above NTR, the 90,000-strong troops stormed across the border into the NTR, accompanied by 2,000 tanks, self-propelled howitzers, and armored vehicles. They were to advance into the NTR as quickly as possible and take over as many land as they could in a day; in other words, they were to undertake a modern ‘blitzkrieg’. The NTR troops would face not only vastly overwhelming numbers, but they would face a huge ‘hail’ of bullets from vastly-superior New Englander weapons and heavy shells from the New Englander tanks. The New Englander troops and tanks began to rapidly advance toward the cities of Canfrutarn, Columbia, Myrtle Beach, Sumter, and Charleston, as well as many others.
