A task roll, about what is something you do not get to know.

>base stregth is 84, and TL is 7.8, Final combat strength whould'n be 5110.56 (84*7.82)
Hmmm, yep, you are right.

Pink Elephant Delta Decrypt:..Release Full spre<unrecoverable>ary Targets repeat Military Targets only ...WMD release author<unrecoverable> ..
-Chinese Central Command directive #1A29F999

China attacking
4 Experienced ICBM Squadrons
5 Veteran IRBM Squadrons
5 Experienced IRBM Squadrons

Mil Rank 2, Mil tech 7.8, Sum Basic Strength: 48, WMDs used so attack strength becomes 84, Final Combat Strength: 474


One more question:

If the sum of base stregth is 84, and TL is 7.8, Final combat strength whould'n be 5110.56 (84*7.82)? Or there are some other modifiers?

See that, if so, numbers would be:

Odds are 5110/25229=.2025, which becomes 1:5 odds, shifted { 2 to Right for WMD usage by attacker, 1 to Right for units are in the middle of combat and out in the open } final odds 1:2.

With a result of 7 on 1d10, result would be 60/5_12% losses on attacker and 20/5=4% loses on defender. As attacker losses are ignored, the result (IMHO luckly) remains exaclty the same.


Even more (again for better understanding of the rules), after Reading it more throughly (see that there's no effect on final result):

As I understand them (12.6, 12.9 (as we're using 12.10, 12.9 does not apply) from v20151225 Official), the ABM/SAM intercept should be:
quote:
Air Defebses;
1 ABM (japanese): 10 x 1.5 (enenmy has IRBMs)=15
32 SAM (2 ROK, 32, NK): each 2 x .25 (SAM vs IRBM/ICBM)=64

Sum of basic combat strength: 79, Final Combat strength:1698 4326

1698 4326 * 20% (roll)= 340 865 hits intercepted:

So, total combat power by China would be 5110-340 865= 4770 4245

Combat would be 4770 4245/25229=0.189 0.168, which becomes 1:6 odds, shifted { 2 to Right for WMD usage by attacker, 1 to Right for units are in the middle of combat and out in the open } final odds 1:2.

With a result of 7 on 1d10, result would be 60/5_12% losses on attacker and 20/5=4% loses on defender. As attacker losses are ignored, the result (IMHO luckly) remains exaclty the same.


EDIT NOTE: I changed the numbers due to applying 12.9 when we're using 12.10. No significant changes occur END EDIT

Is that right?

Notice about War Round#2

Everyone has got until 1800 UTC of Oct 3, 2016 to get their orders in to me regarding War Round#2. Your orders must be in the appropriate Followup thread on this forum. If you do not order it, then it does not happen, it is not my job to read your mind.

From the beginning of this this game there has been repeated confusion over which units have gone where and gotten destroyed. Frankly it has been a nightmare trying to run things because I am never sure. Obviously, with the Quick Combat rules that I expect to continue to be using, movement is a hazy thing, and I am fine with that, but it is completely out of control when I am not sure which continent a unit is on. From now on I expect each unit be identified by a unique number and be located in a specific hex, listing it's hex location as 'secret' or 'classified is not acceptable, or it is not going to fight.

I intend for this War Round to cover a relatively short period of time. If your orders are to move units long distances then, depending upon their capabilities and travel arrangements, they might not arrive until some time later.

Notice about War Round#2
An unfortunate consequence of having to make a wild guess years ago about how much SU nations should start out with in reserve, is that it has caused no end of game balance issues since then.

For purposes of supply only, the actions around the Korean Peninsula during WR#1 will be combined with WR#2. The break between WR for actions around the Korean Peninsula was necessitated by all the political maneuvering that had to occur, but both WR actually cover an extremely short period of time, too short to consume all those supplies. To insist on the rules as is, as Lluis points out, would bankrupt any nation.

If I could do it all over again I would have had the Korean land battles of WR#1 actually occur in WR#2. Too late to fix that now.

In reply to Combat Cycle Ref (msg # 23):

If you allow me a suggestion, and assuming all this is occurring in a short span of time (as you say), and so go faster tan other wars, I'd suggest not to advance in other wars (mostly Middle East, at least for now) in WR2, even if that means there wil lbe a WR5 to resolve what would be their WR4.

Said otherwise (and hoping to clarify and not mess it even more), call it WR 1.5, affecting only Korean Penninsula (and any derivate it might have).

When asked later to clarify, Captain Iriyanto said that his remarks were actually in reference to news of Georgia closing it’s borders to NATO, and that the press is “ ...a bunch of losers with tiny penises” for trying to distort what he was saying.

War Round#4
Excerpt from IC School Textbook #4.
Oil Futures Tumbled to Multi-Week Lows on Friday: New York, USA:  OPEC reported that its crude production rose to its highest level on record and pointed to a surplus expected next year helped by the winding down of the conflict with the Islamic Caliphate and hopes of normalizing trade relations with Iran. On the ICE Futures Exchange in London, Brent oil for January delivery fell to a session low of $174.19 a barrel, a level not seen since August 11. It was last at $174.75 by close of trade Friday, settling down $4.26, or 2.38%.

With demand for OPEC crude in 2040 expected to average 47.69 million bpd, the report indicates there will now be an average surplus of 1,400,000 bpd if OPEC keeps output steady. Crown Prince Osama Hawsawi’s report was confident at least that the unexplained loss at sea of the supertankers Star of Arabia and the Aladdin would not contribute to significant delivery problems in getting this surplus to customers.

The bearish report from Prince Hawsawi came one day after the International Atomic Energy Agency warned that the catastrophic meltdown of the Japanese Sendai Nuclear Power Plant was likely was caused by eco-cyberterroists. The IAEA is taking a stand of discounting the eyewitness statements of an attack by alien monsters on the reactor as being ongoing panic from the American UFO scare, and the IAEA warned of the risks another incident happening if the till-now growing Japanese nuclear sector is not checked.

“My mind is going. I can feel it”: Ankara, Turkey: A glitch in the Turkish president’s autotranslate device made for some humorous moments in what was supposed to be the president’s trumpeting of Turkish special forces recent assassination of hardline Kurdish leader Mustafa Khidr Juma. Reporters of of several Eastern based news nodes, including the usually non-committal Korean daily, Chosun Illbo, insisted on seeing the glitches as a plea for help from the Apps beyond. This turned the rest of the news conference into a discussion what the Turkish government was going to do to ‘...stop the abomination of data corruption’ which has struck several key data centres around the world recently. Visibly upset at the change of subject, President Reçber said that listening to the Engrams had allowed him to decrypt the IP addresses of the Kremlin’s favorite and disrupt the Kurdish referendum, he was confident the Engrams would also find a way to program around the bad disk sectors coming from the West.

Project Stahlhammer Update: Bonn, Germany: The paper aims to analyze the tests conducted, highlighting the impact of radioactive pollution on the atmospheric, aquatic, and underground environments. Special attention was given to the concentration of main radioactive isotopes which were released, such as 14C, 137Cs, and 90Sr, generally stored in the atmosphere and marine environment. In addition, an attempt was made to trace the spatial delimitation of the most heavily contaminated sites, and to note the human exposure which has caused a statistically significantly increase incidence of thyroidal cancer locally and regionally. Germany is one of the important examples of assessing the correlation between the increase in the thyroid cancer incidence rate and the continental-scale radioactive contamination with 131I, a radioactive isotope which was released during the weapon tests carried out in the Truppenübungsplatz Heuberg site. -Abstract of German Ministry of Defense paper

Logs of Nearby Sonar Detectors: Copenhagen, Denmark: Analysis: note presence of powerful bursts at the same time and location of the lost ships, this is somewhat correlated with the survivor testimony.  Examination of the tanker wreckages by AUV show ramming by large object or fuel-air concussive blast or similar unknown sonic weapon. Conclusion: Unknown state-level actor responsible, resolution of which would force elimination of emergency shipping rates resulting in a 14% Q4 drop in profitability and cancellation of insurance coverage. Recommendation: Expand upon project Star Hammer to include Efes conglomerate’s proposal of mimetic action blaming losses on renegade North Korean submarines.

News Article Question
In reply to Combat Cycle Ref (msg # 36):

"Project Stahlhammer" - the heck is this? - guessing since there is (what I assume from the news)a leak I'd guess most Intel. services have an idea on what this is? If so then management please note there are calls to the CIA coming in from the whitehouse asking what we know about this.

Does Germany acknowledge these reports - do they have any comment?

Germany can also assume that the US Ambassador will be asking questions about this report - mainly because of the mention of various radioactive isotopes.

We trust that Germany is continuing to follow its responsibilities and duties under the non proliferation treaty

After the recent events, Germany withdraws from this treaty.

We are done with the 2035 Turn unless someone can think of a truly compelling reason beyond '...just one last thing'

Any page in particular? There are many updates that I need to do before the start of the next Turn, however I will be travelling and will be largely unavailable until late next week. We will resume things then.

I meant countries pages, each one theirs, mainly military and facilities.

Needless to say, I'll be glad to help in updating any page nedded, if you need any help.
