**FGS Gro?deutschland's Flight Deck,
3:1:35 Gamma Romeo (17:35)**
-Captain, the VF-15's are about to take off for their objectives in the Purple Tyranny's camps. Now, all what we need is your authorisation
-Excelent, Commander. Call the pilots to the bombers and communicate Berlin that Operation Gamma India has begun
"Several minutes later, 15 Volfsburg VF-15 bombers and their escorting unit of 10 Sukhoi Su-30 took off from FGS Gro?deutschland for their objectives at no man's land"
Delingpole was in the back, with the wounded AR soldiers. Clarke had sent him to the Gates of Hell, and Para, using his fantastic field medical skill, was treating all of the men.
"Clarke's fucked." laughed Delingpole.
"Too fuckin' right!" laughed Para with him. Even the AR soldiers laughed slightly.
"You OK, mate?" asked one of the HSAS medics from the truck, Watson.
'Ewan' had been violently questioned by Clarke, along with 'Nelson'. They each had wounds being covered by tissue paper, which was a futile attempt by Para. Watson was injected morphine into his leg, then, pulled the bullet out with tweezers, with a severe lack of equipment.
"You.." gasped Ewan, pointing at Clarke.
"What?" demanded Clarke, who nearly kicked him before Para got there first.
"Go to hell, shithead!" laughed Ewan insanely.
Clarke kept trying to pull kick him, but Para kept restraining him. On the 7th try Pars pulled out his USP.45 and cocked it on Clarke's head.
"You're a fuckin' disgrace, did you fuckin' know that, you shittin' motherfucker?" said Para.
"You could be a rapper." laughed Clarke.
Alpha Five Six were a very new squad. They were straight out of training, and HSAS was having a slight lack of funding.
The dead man was in the truck, thankfully for AR citizens.
Nelson was unconscious, after Clarke 'questioned' him. He was the weakest, and the reason Clarke 'questioned' him is because you regularly find the man with the gun makes the law. Ewan was drifting into unconsciousiness, and Watson tried and failed. They were driving to a open field iinside a simple lorry which belonged to 'Harfood', a supermarket.
They all ran out into the landed army helicopter, a large one. A Harriginer speciality, a LAAV (Large Air Assault Vechile). It could cotain 75 soldiers and even had basic medical equipment. They clamberedd into it, and it took off. Nobody knew that Bluenight was in ruins.
Aliyah was walking slowly among one of the tallest trees, with the terrorist camp in view. After one hour of walking, she saw Khaled Hassam, her target.
"Got you now, you son of a b*itch." she thought, aiming through her R700.
He was shaking hands with another Arabic man, as he was offered a large, metal, case. He accepted it.
Hassam fell down, blood bursting out of forehead. The other terrorists took cover, as Aliyah felt a surge of adrenaline and started shooting them, one by one.
Nobody was alive.
Base 7, this is Delta Four. Requesting pick-up, mission complete." she said into her headset.
"Good job, comrade." replied Base 7.
Situation Room, Reichskanzlerpalais, Berlin
-Herr Kanzler, today at 20:49, four minutes ago, the demolition team successfully detonated the Kiel nuclear power plant. The following explosion destroyed the city and everything with a radius of 20 km. Just at the moment of the explosion, our satellites detected a small airplane taking off from the Kiel airport. Badly, it crashed at the harbour just after. Probably due to the explosion or maybe due to a motor failure caused by the EMP.
-Okay, Fitzner. Thank you. Gerhardt, forget that of calling the TV stations. I will talk to the nations. I will tell the truth.
'Just after, Chancellor Mainzer left the Situation Room. Meanwhile, all the military officers and people present at the room started clapping for the success of the operation and for the Chancellor's decision to reveal the real nature of the happening to the people of the region'
"...and as such, the Air Assault Troops will not be sufficient to counter an ETO invasion from the West. Of course, they will be more than capable of handling the initial stages of an invasion in combination with the higher-alert units along the frontier, but..."
"Ugh, where have I heard this before?" Irina muttered to herself as she listened to General Pukhov, Minister of Defence, ranting once more about a pre-emptive strike against Triera and Aesop Rocks.
"Comrade General, utilising the present drills for a pre-emptive strike of full force is totally unacceptable" commented Zyuganov from his seat. Many of the ministers sighed in relief, though Pukhov didn't seem too happy.
"But Comrade President, may I remind you that Aesop Rocks alone is presenting a critical threat to our security? They will no doubt use our present buildup as an excuse to increase their militarisation even more, and--"
"Aesop Rocks' economy is currently under heavy strain from the arms race, Comrade Pukhov, they are at no position to pose a conventional or strategic threat. Besides, I am more than certain that our nuclear doctrine is a credible deterrent, or, if it comes to worst, a credible weapon for tactical and strategic use" commented the economics minister, Aleksandra Aleksandrova.
"Currently we are more than capable of supporting an even broader mobilisation without even beginning to tap the economy and putting it under strain. If we want, we can swallow ETO completely."
"Comrade Aleksandrova, I would appreciate it if you stuck to your budget lists and left military affairs and estimates to the professionals, right?"
"Comrades, I think that's enough. It would be better if this Council retained its unitary nature, right?"
"But exactly because of that you need to agree to, and approve that upon the conclusion of mobilisation tomorrow, we should activate more reserves while we make a push for Europolis itself!"
"But Comrade Minister!"
The discussions continued in the Kremlin, appearing to be unusually favourable for the warlike General today.
Alexander Brandt sat on his chair and started to speak:
Ladies and Gentlemen Shareholders of Groβdeutscher Military Industries, welcome again to the GMI Shareholders Meeting. Our design offices have recently given birth to a project that will, probably, make our company be known all around the world. Ladies and gentlemen, this is the... The Dropship 01-Troop Carrier Pelikane (D01-TC), the design that will outdate all previous existing Troop Carrier vehicles. This Transport aircraft will be able to carry up to 12 soldiers inside of it. The Pelikane is capable of descension from the planetary orbit.
Now, we will proceed to vote on this new vehicle that will probably make GMI a very important company in the world.

Bundesnachrichtendienst HQ, Berlin
General Andrew Schwarzneg was drinking a cup of coffee at his office's desk while reading a newspaper when his secretary, Sergeant Willis, opened the door with so many force that it made a louder noise, making General's coffee to fall into his newspaper.
-Shit, son! What the hell is goin' on!?
-Sorry General, but it is a very important information obtained by the Radiation Detection Satellite during it's last orbit over Aleutia.
Sergeant Willis gave General Schwarzneg a 20 pages report. General Schwarzneg rapidly went on to the third page of the report and started to read.
-"The RDS-112 detected small amounts of radiation have been recorded over the Aleutian zone known as Western Andreanof." Sergeant, it seems that the Aleutians have a dark side and that their intentions are not the same as they publicily state. Call the Kanzler and inform him of this report.
-Sir, yes sir!
The officers where all debating about the nuclear weapons. Suddenly, Kanzler Mainzer entered the meeting room and the officers stood up
Please, sit down.-he sat on his chair and spoke to the officers- Well, I have taken a decision. I will mantain my promess and this nation will not develop nuclear weapons. At least during my government.
But, Herr Kanzler!
Shut up, Colonel! He's the Commander-in-chief and we must do what he orders. Thank you, Mr. Kanzler, for informing us.
Then, Kanzler Mainzer left the room and the officers started to discuss the decision of their Commander-in-chief.
'As a consequence of the great disruption in the delivery of mail caused by the revolution of months past, the Cwrulandian government failed to note officially the announcement of this meeting.' Roger Outhwaite, the newly-named EU Ambassador of Cwrulandia, wondered if this would suffice to explain his late arrival at his first EU meeting. 'Well, it will have to do,' he decided, as he quietly slipped into his seat while the opening remarks were being made.
The Anatolian Highlands were swept by dust flying threw the air and obscuring the rugged terrain of interior Alikhstan, fueled by the Belarian Operational Force of Apache helicopters headed towards an intended target of Mujahideen fighters held up in an old keep. The leader of the strike force was Second Lieutenant Alan Davidson, who was communicating directly with General Heidecker during the course of the operation. Davidson patched through to another helicopter part of the strike, and spoke with the pilot.
"Foxtrot-Alpha, this is Ecko-One, we're going to be approaching the Zulu from the southwest, we want you coming in from as north as possible. We've been hearing chatter they've got some serious bloopers. The Kahuna wants us to come in scattered to screw with 'em."
Davidson hated the field lingo, he?d have much rather spoke to his comrades like a normal human being. But however stupid he felt the lingo was, there was a good chance it was true. It was widely assumed by the Belarian troops that Soviet elements ? authorized or not ? were selling off spare hardware to the Alikhi insurgents and the Brotherhood. This meant there was a slight chance that this particular keep was armed with shoulder-mounted rocket launchers with capability of actually taking down a Belarian Apache. Davidson?s stream of thought was broken by the various responses of the pilots.
?Roger that, Ecko-One, we?ll spread the word. We?ll flank them, and get the fellow Foxtrots to surround them, over.?
Their assignment was the arrest or elimination of Lieutenant Nasreddin along with the capture of the ancient settlement Sivrihisar. The locals were potentially unpredictable, as their isolation from the west of the country nurtured the radicals who embraced the extremist law of strict constructionist Islam. Davidson knew this, and his approach to the situation would be extremely controversial. His orders were to take the town by any means necessary, but he intended on using force as a last resort.
As the helicopters drew closer and closer to the Holy Roman keep at the center of the town, he initiated his plan.
?Foxtrots, this is Ecko-One, activate the wings!?
The squad of helicopters suddenly activated massive speakers attached to the wings, and a message echoed out from the surrounding squadron to the townspeople and insurgents alike, in their native tongue no less.
?Peace be upon you, citizens of Alikhstan, the European forces mean you no harm.? We have come to liberate you from the tyranny of the Nationalist-Islamist Coalition and the Brotherhood.? Shelter, medical attention, and warm food are offered to those who abide by the rule of law so that justice for all may prevail.? We respect the word of Allah, glory be to him.? We come not to dominate; we come to set you free from the fear caused by the aggression of extremists.? Insurgents lay down your arms in the name of Allah, and no harm will come to you!? You will be treated fairly in a court of law.? We will not initiate conflict; any shooting will be caused by the insurgency.? The European forces do not fire first, but if fired upon we will secure the peace.?
Second Lieutenant Davidson hoped the message would appeal to the average Alikhi in the town, and maybe some insurgents. He knew that not many Brotherhood members would be swayed by the display of ?peace from strength?, but the Nationalist-Islamist Coalition was probably more swayable. The message was designed to cause confusion in the ranks, and push the radicals further away from reason, making them more isolated and less attractive to the common Alikhi citizen.
As the helicopters drew closer, the townspeople stood in silence as the wind swept the dust upwards. In the distance, jeeps, trucks, and several tanks rolled towards Sivrihisar from the west. Now it was up to the insurgents: would they spill more blood, or opt for peace?
