20150703 12:29 badanov The Chernarusian ministry of defense has announced a new deployment of naval and ground forces near the horn of Africa.

The main focus of operations will be Tropica Island, currently in the hands of several groups, including Chedaki insurgent and criminal groups as well as the usual Islamic groups.

The northern half of the island is occupied by troops loyal to the Molatian government, and while the government maintains bases in the south, that area is administered by national liberation fronts and by transnational criminal organizations, including Takistani Army regulars, Takistani militia, Chedaki and African rebel troops.

The area has been used by Chedaki criminal elements as a source for drugs and slaves, and as a base for customers for arms, munitions and cash they ship in exchange for drugs.

The deployment is also meant to bolster the presence of NATO forces in the area and will work closely with those forces. Chernarusian forces are expected to conduct counter pirate operations, as well as disrupt, degrade and destroy rebel operations in the region.

The ground forces will be based at an undisclosed location, while the naval task force will rotate in and out of their Green Sea naval bases.

Naval Forces deployment:

4 Flower Class corvettes
2 Patrol Boat Tenders

Naval forces will be split into two task groups, with one at Green Sea naval bases, with the other in current operations.

Chernarus Naval Forces Deployment

30 Naval Infantry
30 Naval special forces
4 Assault Ships
2 Ship borne command centers
2 MI-17 helicopters
2 Drones
20 Command/Intel/Support personnel
10 Naval personnel

Probable Enemy Forces

300 Molation Army regulars w/ 30 BRDMs and 30 technicals (100 deployed in the southeast)
150 African Rebels w/15 technicals
100 Takistan Army regulars w/ 30 technicals
100 Chedaki rebels w/ 30 technicals

Chernarus naval forces can expect limited help from the US Navy in the form of air strikes, and some help from US Army Delta, SEAL, British SAS and CIA Tier 1 operators.
20150703 02:36 OldSpook An autopilot module, named for the first pilot you get in the the game: Jebediah Kerman. Something of a meme with the Kerbal Space Programme online community about living thru some very very bad spacecraft design and piloting issues. C.F. "unplanned rapid disassembly", especially at impact or altitude.
20150703 00:40 Thing From Snowy Mountain MechJeb?
20150702 23:21 3dc to add to the game: http://global.jaxa.jp/press/2015/07/20150702_h3.html
20150702 01:34 OldSpook Power is still on and I still have interwebz so the world must still be climbing into the handbasket for the trip.

Unmanned probes have twice suffered unplanned rapid disassembly on contact with the surface of the second moon, minmas. Planning a 3rd to be followed by the manned mission.

Docking is a bitch. Get MechJeb addon.

Grinding out science contracts, getting out to the really good stuff.

Back to my game
20150701 16:30 Deacon Blues For a second there BP I thought you were having a cookout.
20150630 14:16 Bright Pebbles Smoked boskone. It was mentally ill off topic rambling.
20150630 07:58 Deacon Blues AB went home when he left here.
20150630 04:58 Shipman the version KSP I had was test-ware from Sourceforge. Do any less than retail versions exist, if not is it worth the $41.00?
20150629 21:03 Pappy Still in the early stages (pun intended) of KSP. Space tourism is all the rage, it seems.
20150629 21:01 Pappy Wonder if AB is heading toward the Mojave?
20150629 19:01 Deacon Blues Looks like the Supreme Court has put a dagger in the heart of our Republic. They declined to hear a case brought against Arizon and Kansas challenging their law to require people to prove U. S. citizenship in order to register to vote.
20150629 15:56 Deacon Blues You would need something like a tractor beam, I would think.
20150629 15:37 Skidmark Can you build an Orbital Pull Platform in lieu of a terrestrial push, OS?
20150629 15:09 Deacon Blues He's doing great. He enjoyed the attention from the felines.
20150629 14:52 Shipman How's old AB getting along, I miss him.
20150629 12:38 Deacon Blues Auto Bartender spent the weekend here on Clinch Mountain. It turns out he'S a cat charmer. He had all 6 of the barn cats vying for attention.
20150629 01:06 OldSpook well thats not the bad word. I had a post explain the game footage you see below. But the filter here does not like English. I give up. Watch the vid, and try the game. its fun.
20150629 01:05 OldSpook this is all in-game, wit the right modifications loaded.

Putting together a launchable modular gantry is going to be the real trick.

20150628 18:28 BrerRabbit ditto OS. And Ship put the synopsis together as well.
20150628 18:09 Glenmore I feel exactly as Old Spook.
20150628 18:00 Shipman O fooey, came apart at Max Q, Jeebus.
20150628 17:59 Shipman Not a good staging Walter.

Fear gawd and dreadnought OS, take comfort in your kin and look towards a better day, it is coming in its own due course.
20150628 15:36 OldSpook tl;dr version - Sorry we coudln't fight off the internal collectivists the way we did the external ones, who are using the liberty we gave them to oppress. Best thing about getting old is Ill be long dead or senile when the worst of this hits.
20150628 15:30 OldSpook Thè world can go to hèll - thè soonèr thè bèttèr bècausè that's whèn thè changè will comè.

This past wèèk has bèèn prètty bad with thè Suprèmè Court basically abandoning Constitutionalism for lègislating from thè bènch and abandoning rèason for fèèlings. But that's just thè chèrry on top. In gènèral, wè havè bèèn sliding down toward thè abyss for quitè a whilè.

And thè rèactions from thè winning sidè arè thè most troubling aspèct of all of it. Thè snèèring, irrationality, condèscènsion and èvèn hatrèd dèmonstratèd by that faction is almost palpablè. I'm gètting so tirèd of fighting thè samè battlès, and having thè mass of thè mèdia praisè thè irrationality and concèntration of powèr, thè diminishmènt of individualism and èmbracè of collèctivism, and my own govèrnmènt ultimatèly against mè, a govèrnmènt that I protèctèd that grèw into thè monstrosity it is now bècoming, whèrè it will forcè pèoplè to èithèr givè up thèir libèrty or thèir conscièncè and conform to thè control of thè èlitists who run it.

I'm tirèd. All I havè thè ènèrgy to do now is bunkèr-up and makè thè world to lèavè mè alonè (by forcè if nècèssary) and livè in thè disastèr thèy arè crèating for thèmsèlvès. Whèrè is Galt's Gulch whèn you nèèd it? Thèrin liès thè biggèst flaw in Rand - in thè ènd, thè only truè sècurity is in faith and in God, bècausè all èlsè is flèèting.

I fèèl sad that I havè not lèft my childrèn, grandchildrèn and grèat grandchildrèn's gènèration thè libèrty to which I was hèir, and I pity thèm for thè choicè thèy will bè facèd with - fight and possibly diè, or livè as a slavè, or worsè - èlèct not to choosè and slowly slidè into bèing an animal on a farm, bèrèft of rèason and morality.

I'll bè back, but Im taking a brèak, and dont takè this thè wrong way, thè world can go to hèll, but without mè.

fyi the e accent are because one of the normal english words/phrases above triggers the spam filter (yet all that chinese crap doesnt, go figure).
