While analysts predicted a period of consolidation after the fierce fighting of the last two weeks, the major powers of the Human Sphere launched a new wave of attacks throughout Novyy Chimmeria – our aerial drones are tracking all the action!
The fires of conflict keep burning on the frozen coastline of Novvy Cimmeria as Dawn-01 Apletok becomes the hotspot of the Infowar and the chain of events keep depicting a concerning scenario for every possible diplomatic solution. Right now, this front is far from being cold.
The recent revelation of Dawn-01 Aplekton’s location on Novvy Cimmeria received a lot of attention on the news networks and made it one of the hotspots of activity, engulfing it immediately in the surrounding conflict. During this time the Maya network dimmed on Novvy Cimmeria for a few days. Official reports speak of a massive hardware failure, while rumors in the dark corners of Maya, talk about elements of the Combined Army capturing the Aplekton for several days, before veteran Paradiso troops from the OS were brought in to secure the base and its surrounding perimeter. The perimeter is now considered secure, but it is far from safe. It has also been rumored that the Combined Army and Ariadna activity has significantly increased along the base.
“Aleph is determined to safeguard humanity’s co prosperity, no threat, alien or otherwise, will stop us from our task, be assured we are here to bring this war to a conclusion and bring order according to Concilium laws”
Commander Bob-03 press release after debriefing of O-12 concerning the ongoing “Kurage Crisis”
Despite the restraint the Big Blue has shown in the last two weeks while safeguarding the perimeter of PanOc 23, PanOceania started the third week of the conflict with a massive assault on Yu Jing territory. They managed to briefly capture and hold the bunker area of Zhàn Huó firebase, while simultaneously keeping the perimeter of PanOc 23 safe from numerous incursions.
In a recent press approach to Commander LouisJoey: -“Make no mistake, PanOceania is committed to withhold the O-12 sovereignty resolution and punish any aggression on Japanese territory. We are determined on this path of action, and after the exemplary capture of Zhàn Huó Bunker complex, we think we’ve shown a measured example of God’s will.”
The State empire seems to have suffered a setback earlier this week when PanOceanian forces managed to capture and hold Zhàn Huó firebase Bunker complex, thus forcing the Jade Empire to divert most of its forces operating in other theaters to defend its own territory. Despite veteran reserves managing to force PanOceania out, the Big Blue remains a constant threat to Zhàn Huó’s perimeter.
“PanOceania is acting delusional. The State-Empire honors resolutions of the O-12 and the sovereignty of the Japanese state. Kurage Underwater Sensoring Facility has been built and financed by Yu Jing and the Japanese state has never compensated us for its takeover. We are not aggressors, we just aim to take back what is rightfully ours.” Stated Commander Animek refuting accusations of Yu Jing aggression on Kurage station.
It has always been a military doctrine to only fight a conflict on one front at a time , also that the technologically superior will have an advantage over lesser forces. The Ariadnans are showing they do not live by any old axiom: their forces continue to harass all forces on Novvy Cimmiria while defending their assets. With the exception of Yu Jing, where there have been only a few minor clashes. Particularly puzzling to our analysts is the determination and commitment of Ariadnan forces against the Dawn-01 Aplekton base and conspiracy channels on Maya and Arachne have used this to reinforce the rumours of some Ariadnan planet wide search of other “illegal” Aleph Aplekton Nodes.
-“We should clean our boots with those robots. First, because it brings good fortune. Second, because they won’t understand anything else.” Commander Hakuna addressing troops on Lafayette base.
The Haqqislamite faction develops to be the big enigma of the Kurage Crisis. The Sword of Allah has proven formidable these past two weeks- they managed to decisively defend Duban’s perimeter and take control of “Johnny 5” Kommstat from ALEPH’s forces in defense of their Nomads allies, the Haqqisalm faction does not seem to care much for engaging any forces. Instead they concentrate on defending their perimeter.
“This senseless violence has stopped processing and trade. Do not take our lack of aggression as a sign of weakness, make no mistake, we will defend our territory and help our allies, but we do not wish to add fire to a conflict that already costs a lot on cancelled contracts.” Commander Perzan.
While Nomad forces seemed to have problems stabilizing their perimeter in the past two weeks, briefly losing the control of the entire “Johnny 5 node”, the new week saw Tunguska Jurisdictional Command units enforcing the perimeter of “Johnny 5” with brutal efficiency. Such behavior is characteristic for Black Hand forces, rumored to have arrived a week ago, are now visibly deployed “en force” throughout “Johnny 5’s perimeter.
“When you ask me about directive 69 you are somehow insinuating that the Nomad nation could have landed on this piece of dirt without a backup plan against AI Infowar agenda. We’ve come ready for this scenario since day one and that’s what those soul less drones are going to witness for the rest of the conflict: pure Nomad badassery.” Commander Wisekensai interview on Sabbot.
Earlier this week Maya dimmed on Dawn, while official spokespersons spoke of a node failure that needed more than a day of extensive repair to bring it back online. Reports from Arachne speak of a multi-day alien occupation, Aleph representatives accused Nomads of their so called “Bropaganda”, but refused to answer why so many veteran OperationS Subsection troops were deployed on the Dawn-01 Aplekton’s base during the repair period.
“What you see is a supposedly footage from Dawn-01 Aplekton base, leaked on Arachne by Nomad hackers, what you see is what is referred in the footage as Commander Flipswitch leading the assault on Dawn-01”
Another oddity of the Kurage Crisis are the Tohaa Trigon. They seem to be almost exclusively operating on the perimeter of Lafayette base, directly opposing the vastly numerically superior Ariadna forces.
The question nobody can answer is: “why?” Although some conspiracy channels on Maya speak of a feud that stretches back to the remote island of Flamia on Paradiso.
“The nation of Ariadna needs to understand the severity of the Combined Army and strengthen their defenses against the tricks the Evolved Intelligence uses to divide allies”
Statement of Commander Melkiach.
Nomad and Haqqislam analysts believe that the fall of Kurage Underwater Sensoring at the hands of Yu Jing the past week has negatively affected the interests of the new Japanese nation on Novvy Chimmeria, military consultants believe this was caused partially because a significant part of NA2 forces is composed of mercenary companies and partially because of overcommitting on attacking Lafayette forward base. This may give credits to the rumors that the Kuge have bribed, threatened and offered lucrative contracts to the mercenary companies under their command to come back and defend the rest of Kurage station from further incursions.
“While it is a setback, it only strengthened our resolve and belief in the destiny our glorious nation has in Novvy Cimmeria, let Yu Jing false emperor gloat, Kurage station was and will be ours” Commander Barakiel answering warcor questions.
