Welcome to Zaritonia, friends! The birth of a new nation has happened!
Welcome to your own nation, /tg/!
Most Recent Events
June 10th, 1951

Our valiant DDI have been preparing and training to take a Mig-9 from the People's Republic of Capricia... All eyes are on target as they have prepared to act. However, due to the nature of the Mig-9s, it is impossible to steal it... they have a plan (next post) to be permitted by you. Vote on it wisely...


Locally, engineers have been going at it strong to finish prep of the PT boats. We have 50 combat capable boats. However, they are not heavily armed and still slow enough that any recon in the air will see them long before they are in combat range. A high casualty unit.

Our rocket program has been making great strides with setting up facilities. As far as we know, we have yet to have been discovered by world powers. (Don't think we named him yet?) The Good Doctor Albert Zhukov (Альберт Жуков) has finalized the facilities designs. He promises to have them making rocket fuel and missile parts by the end of 1952 if we triple his funding. (We have about 80% of our national income doing something right now, 3% of it is his program. 20% left is going to savings.)

All other projects are proceeding smoothly. Expect an in-depth state of the nation report in a few months.


The US has once again offered to buy our island. The diplomat drops a few key words like 'keeping the reds away.'

The Zaritonian Maritime Republic

-President: Jebediah Faust (Jeb in human form. Yes. THAT Jeb..we also have a rocket program...)

DDI proposed plan.

Step 1: Infiltrate the Mig-9 Pilot (should be easy.)
Step 2: Sneak the Mig-9 Pilot onto base, in enemy uniform.
Step 3: Begin a commando attack on their air defense systems and air base to distract them. Use locals primarily.
Step 4: Mig escapes to ZMR airspace flying nap of the Earth.
Step 5: Prepare for war with the ZMR, they won't like this.

How long can we keep this on the ice? We'd have to buy more engine from Rolls-Royce, prepare the assemblies for short notice production.

>> No.22646364

The PT boats are ready for deployment, though they could use some more powerful engines...

There is something about the way the PT boats sit in the water, if they sit higher, they can go faster! (R&D on Hydrofoil hull designs)

Start the Student labs on their first project. How do we make Refrigerators? (Reverse engineer standard 'White Goods' as to learn how they work and how to make them)

>> No.22646401

I think we can defeat Capricia as-is, if we neutralize their Mig squadron's airfield during the raid.

Give Dr. Zhukov his 9%, conditional upon good progress.

The US cannot buy our island, but I'm okay with them keeping the island until, say, 1965 for military assistance/training/aid, among other perks and an exorbitant amount of money. If they want to keep the island, we expect them to help us defeat the Commies in our backyard.

I sign off on this.

>> No.22646418

...they can go faster, but they're also made more visible and easier to hit. I don't think that's the right way to go.

>> No.22646467

Alright, we have it -planned.-
Let's not piss off the USSR.

>> No.22646503

PT boats were designed to preform hit and run attacks on larger class ships. the idea was that a small, fast boat could rapidly approach a ship, using it's maneuverability to throw off the ships gunners, then to deploy 2-4 torpedoes into the target ship.
Speed was one of its main assets.

>> No.22646533



If we're going to go full scale war, we may as well just blow the shit out of their air field and navy in surprise attacks.

Also, Grand Leader...

Did the Russians simply pave the PRC runway(s)?

I did a rough distance estimate via google maps, finding Zaritonia roughly ~800 miles from Soviet China, if you travel over Taiwan...

Is this a fair estimate?

>> No.22646542

It isn't the USSR we'd be pissing off, at least directly. It's the People's Republic of Capricia. And our conflict with them will never end until one side defeats the other... well, unless we let them co-exist with us until 1991 or so.

But really, we'd be better off taking them out now, before they can get any more aid from the Soviets. We're not getting help from a superpower, but they are. If we let that gap get any bigger, it won't end well for us.

We have a week or two time. Because the Migs will begin seeing use soon and theyll be installing their new stuff.

Russians set up a single PRC runway to support the Mig-9s. Gave them the stuff to tend the craft. Lots of armed goods. Then left.

ALSO: We are about 200 Kilometers from Taiwan, give or take, until the US Navy base. 600 KM average, give or take 50km, from China.

>> No.22647835

I haven't heard of the MP40 thing, but I know for a fact that it was much closer to 7 or 8 to 1, and that was because of poor commanding skill. The commanders would all focus one target instead of different ones, meaning that they would lose more.

>> No.22647866


>Absolute shit

Confirmed for no taste Chermany-dick-suck.
Most tanks of WWII had ventilation that left much to be desired and if you think otherwise you don't know what a bore extractor is.

The second point is bollocks and needs citation or I ain't believing it.

A KDR is nothing if you can't consider what makes 75% of the tank. The crews which by the way weren't well trained up until '43. Even then the introduction of a shit ton of heavy german armour and a lack of updates to its 76mm gun made it vulnerable.

Here's the kicker my poorly informed friend. The T-34 and its cousin the KV-1 were the reason Chermany decided to get bigger tanks to START with. Next you're going to tell me that a Panzer IV Ausf D is the ideal tank for this situation.

On topic: The T-34's are reliable tanks, since this ISN'T 1941 they should be entirely servicable and the 76mm is a pretty decent infantry support gun. If they're -85's then even better.

>> No.22647891

You can't fix design flaws in vehicles that already exist. that's called scrapping them and starting over. exactly what I suggested
No, 20:1 is more accurate. Most German tanks were mechanical failures, not combat kills. of Germany's armour losses. Most likely only 5% on the eastern front(Very late into the war)were killed by Soviet anything. Armour and gun wise. the German tanks had no equal. Mechanical wise. they chewed up transmissions. but so did the T-34's

We need to coordinate with a massive strike.

Grand Leader, what do we have in the way of Landing Craft?

We need to shell and bomb the shit out of their airfields, army base and naval port at the same time after the MIG goes off.

What do they have in the way of explosives?

Since they already got access to the airbase, can they get access to the army base and sabotage their armour and equipment? Say disable vehicles and blow up arms.

We might as well induce food poisoning in their troops as well. Mix in laxatives and shit in the giant pots used for base cooking.

2) Police can't hit a barn.

T-34s are not T-34/85s
Some are missing parts and armor.

Also: T-34's were so-so. However, I would say no source is accurate. Post war propaganda taints everything. So don't be so quick to quote generals.

Technically speaking. T-34/85 were equal matches for the 1950s upgraded Shermans. Both were equally as shitty. T-34/85s struggled with Pershings.

Simply put. T-34 and Shermans both died in hoards to German tanks. While I'm not saying the German armor is best ever... its just a difference in tactics.

Corsairs and Thunderbolts are to be running and waiting to depart their runways at dawn. Rocket/Bomb loadouts. Fly low, ingress PRC airspace at ~100ft. Hit their runway hard and RTB.

PBYs will follow after the Corsairs and Thunderbolts to recover any pilots that encounter mechanical issues and have to ditch.

P-51Ds and Warhawks will form a second strike package, to strike PRC naval assets or strike the airfield again as needed. (Unfortunately, the airfield will likely have AA up and ready for them if the first wave fails)

Once we cripple their air force, we hit their navy and ground forces before we do a proper invasion.

Sabotage plans:

Slip concentrated laxatives and spoiled food/germs into the giant vats of food used in their bases. Make their soldiers sick and unable to put up a decent fight.

The equipment has just arrived and I bet their troops are not yet trained on how to fully maintain their tanks and guns.

If we foul their engines/spark plugs and guns, they won't be able to fix them for awhile. Rather than bombing everything, where we might be able to capture stuff.

Of course if they appear to be successful in getting them running, we can bomb their motor pools.

Okay, back to the topic I was going to bring up last time gentlemen, we have large supplies of oil in our swamps and offshore. Should we support a domestic oil company to drill more wells, or invite a foreign oil company to do the drilling?

Foreign companies would have better equipment and training, so the department very much towards bringing in an American company.

1. Geological survey, round lord knows what!
2. Report on the shape of the local governments and local and regional bureaucracy.

The attack proceeds as according to plan. DDI and rebel-PRC citizens attack the base early dawn... air raid sirens fill the air as hanger to hanger combat occurs. Mig-9s are scrambled in an attempt to escape the attack. Most are unready to even fly...

One rolls down the runway. Seemingly lucky in avoiding rebel attention. It taxis to the runway awkwardly, engine sputtering a few times as the unfamiliar hands handle the craft.

Hence the all out decapitation strike.

Once we get our hands on the acting heads of the PRC and force them to issue an unconditional surrender, we've won.

Beyond that, we're hammering that lower left PRC naval unit from both sides. Once that one is down, we can redirect that navy unit to physically obstruct the Russian Navy convoy from returning.

Then its a game of chicken to see if they'll attack first.

I'm just hoping that we can capture more forces than we destroy. It would be nice to double the size of our navy and get six MiG-9s rather than sinking everything and getting just the one MiG.

Also, we probably should have let Fallschi's holdouts know about our attack ahead of time. It would be nice to have submarine backup as a last resort.

>> No.22653020


Well considering that we basically fucked all their rides... I think we captured the lion's share of the Russian hardware the PRC bought.

Unfortunately, the navy units have been out at sea. Infiltrating and sabotaging those units is a tad difficult. Likely the only way we'll get them is if we force a quick surrender. Otherwise, we'll have to sink them.

About the MIGs... If we crater the airfield, those MIGs aren't flying anywhere. Silly PRC/Russians, only having one runway for their best planes.

>> No.22653132

The problem is that even if we perform a successful decapitation strike and crater their runway, there are likely to be ideological fanatics who would rather blow up their own aircraft than let them fall into enemy hands.

We really don't know what's going on between the USSR and the Capricians. GL's posts seem to suggest that there's some sort of political infighting on the island, which was only magnified by the arrival of the Soviets.

The equipment was delivered "at gunpoint." What does that mean, exactly? "Take it or we shoot you," or "we're watching over this stuff to make sure it arrives without issue"?

Either way, we've fired the first shots now. There's no turning back.

Easy. Plenty of people have joined.

Copying and pasting the following from a post by ZPO (prior to updating), outlining a super-condensed history:

Settled by the German Empire as a colony
After WW1, gifted to the Japanese Empire as spoils.
Due to this, the local populace do not like the Japanese much and have a 'thing' for Germany.
Over the cause of WW2, was used as a springboard for the conquest of Asia by the Japanese. During this time, a U-Boat sub pen was built on the island. They survived the war and thus we have German Kriegsmarine holdouts.

After WW2, our nation is a US lackey and we've been planning its overthrow. The turning point was use of an offshore island for nuclear testing. This led to all out hostilities until the UN stepped in to mediate elections. We won those elections and formed the Zaritonian Maritime Republic.

The government in exile that we defeated occupied one of our islands, and then turned to Communism. They made friends with the USSR and had some military aid delivered to them. Now the Soviet fleet left and we just began a surprise attack on them.

Oh, and it's currently 1951.

Maybe give me some extra info on country's agriculture, industry and army. Don't you have all of important info compiled somewhere? It would be easier to browse than going through 23 threads.

>> No.22659753

Details about agriculture/food have been spotty. Historically, the native Zari mostly relied on fishing for food. The colonists introduced them to inland farming, I believe.

We apparently don't have many fresh fruits, because at one point our citizens requested for us to import them. A good portion of our terrain is dominated by marshland and mangrove swamps.

As for industry, these are our resources (pic related). We have quite a few defense contractors, as well as a booming mining industry and ridiculous amounts of feldspar.

>> No.22659841

considering the biome seasonal crab hunting and fishing can be good to do with all these swamps

bonus points if it incentives the small fishermen

>> No.22659861

I think we have a few plantations and small scale farms. Most of the food comes from fishing.

"In good shape for a country of our size." Glory harbor has a steel mill, munition factory, weapons factory, and a dry dock. A Volks Wagon factory is going up in the city called Bismarck (which is 1212 on the map). Also a number of small factories. We have mines in the mountains that bring out a number of resources, and we have too much fucking feldspar.

Hell if I know, we have a number of tanks, mortars, anti-aircraft pieces, and artillery.

I'm too lazy to look up what our navy has, but it is a number of ships from WWII. We have a self-imposed limit of not build a ship larger than 30 tons. We have three deep water ports in the country (The three cities with a anchor near them on the map) with Glory Harbor being able to accommodate much larger ships and a larger volume of ships.

>Air force
We have around >100 aircraft, all from WWII or so. We're trying to get a jet, as you can see. Our runways are in good condition, the Americans fixed them up when they came in.

>Generic Stats
We have a census that is well funded and that will start near the end of the year, and a report of our nation's exports and imports and another report of the state of state and local governments will be end by the end of the year.

That pic is outdated, updated one with all our damn oil.

>> No.22659911

As we're on an island, so far we've invested more in naval and aeronautical pursuits. We have some decent commandos, and a whole bunch of old tanks.

Our soldiers generally use the StG 44 assault rifle. For anti-armor, we produce a copy of the panzerfaust (renamed the ZAKU).

The navy has a collection of old Japanese destroyers and frigates, along with a complement of PT boats and landing craft.

Our air force is so far stuck using outdated prop planes, mostly Warhawks. We do have some PBYs and the like as well, and we just stole a working MiG 9 from our communist neighbors. So hopefully we'll have a few jet fighters soon.

Other than that, did you just started a war with the Soviets? Are you allied with anybody?

>> No.22660238

Not quite with the Soviets, but with a tiny proxy state. If we're lucky, we can defeat the People's Republic of Capricia before the USSR can react.

For the record, the UN doesn't recognize Capricia as a sovereign nation. They are technically just rebels occupying one of the islands that are rightfully ours. Pretty much only the USSR recognizes them as a nation.

As for allies, we're pretty much alone. Our relationship with the United States is a bit frosty, since we just a few months ago kicked out the government they supported. But we allow them to lease one of our outlying islands as a military base.

We have some ties to the Gehlen Organization spy ring in Europe, so we at least are on talking terms with some anti-Communist supporters.

And if all else fails, our Kriegsmarine holdouts have U-Boats. They sank an American aircraft carrier a few months ago, which was quite a sphincter-clenching moment. Ultimately, the cause of the sinking was officially declared to be an old Japanese mine. Thank God.

we could always use provinces, as the Chinese were the first to try and colonize Zaritonia... though Shires/Counties would fit from the British colonization... you'll have to ask Fallschi the German name for the sub-division of a country.

based on our history, we can use Chinese, British, German, Japanese, and American names for our towns/cities. where the names are influenced in the above order; Oldest to Youngest. gives more cultural depth to their names.
