Title: Tagmatium approaches Adaptus
Tagmatium Rules - August 16, 2005 03:10 PM (GMT)
Since the end of the Tagmatine Civil War, and the revolt and destruction of the old Holy Imperial Navy, Tagmatium has been slowly healing the damage done by the rebels. This includes the almost complete restructuring of the navy, as only two fighting ships were left in loyalist hands after several sea battles against the rebels. Since then, Neidoesteriech has been supplying the Greater Holy Empire with new destoryers and frigates. But the navy is still lacking in capital ships, and the aircraft for these. Therefore, we need to purchase several "Maximus" Class Nuclear Powered Aircraft Carriers, along with the aircraft it needs to be fully functional. We realise this will cost alot, and also take a large amount of time to be completed, but we are prepared to wait this amount of time. Money won't be paid in one large sum for these ships, rather in instalments, because otherwise our economy will be crippled.

OOC: I am am too scared, LOL!

payment in instalments is fine, how many carriers would you like. our production of these is slightly slow, but we have 3 ready to be sailed across to you with oporaters to help you get to turmes with the ship. in the case of aircraft we dont have and carrier based aircraft ready for export just yet but an update to the Vickers Weapons Systems article with carrier based aircraft will arrive soon. but untill then we can offer either assault helicopers or troop transport helicopters to go with your orders for now. either 5 assault helicopters, 3 transport helicopters or a mix of 3 assault helicopters and 1 tranport packages are avalible.
Tagmatium Rules - August 16, 2005 03:51 PM (GMT)
We'd prefer the assault helicopters, at the moment. Concerning the number of ships, we would like to purchase two of the ships already available. Once we have fully come to terms with the operation and capabilities of the vessels, as well as how they handle in combat situations. To this end, we may have to organise some sort of "wargame" or another sort of mock-combat execise to ascertain the abilities of the vessels. The price of these craft was not mentioned. How much are they each?
Adaptus - August 16, 2005 09:03 PM (GMT)
a fine choise with the assault chopers, these come free of charge with the purchase. the price is 1.5 million USD each (i dont know if you have a regoinal currence at the moment so all prices are in USD). we think this is quite a bargen for such a vessle. i have given your idea of war games to the head of my nations armed forces, and he has came up with a great idea for all nations, an annual regoin war games, to let nations show off ther military power without having to kill people in the prosess. anyway back to the sales, it will take about 3 days to prep the ships for their first voage, but once they are ready they shall be shiped off. also, inlight of your request for payment in installments we have offered 6 payments of 500,000 or 12 payments of 250,000 however if these are to much then just tell us how much you are willing to pay in installments. all in all, the ships should be entering your port within 5-6 days.
thank you for bussiness.

OOC: I use Euros but I'm not going to attempt to try to work it out...
We thank you for your cooperation, and will look forward to the ships arrival. Once in Tagmatium, they will have a special ceremony performed to name them and accept them as Holy Imperial Naval ships. We would like to invite your head of state to this ceremony when the vessels arrive.

We would be very interested in purchasing jet figthers to equip the aircraft carriers. Would it be something along the lines of the Harrier aircraft, or the British-American Joint Fighter (OOC: or whatever its' called), or even a standard, horizontal take-off aircraft?
Adaptus - August 17, 2005 11:56 AM (GMT)
We are just finishing our list, and it will be places in an update of the Vickers Weapon Systems list. it will include a variaty of diffrent aircraft. all to have carrier deployment variants.the update will be avalible hopfuly by either the end of today or tomorow.

We've been checking out your rivals in combat aircraft manufacture, especially ones capable of launch from an aircraft carrier, namely Ide Jima, and it appears you are the only ones who actually have aircraft capable of such a feat. You've got the market cornered. We'd be happy to wait until the specifications were available for these aeroplanes.
OOC: Isn't $1 million a bit cheap? I thought they'd be nearer $1 billion, if not more.
EDIT: Wrong currency signs.

The new Adaptus-built Holy Imperial Navy Aircraft Carriers arrived in Tagmatine waters today, nearing the end of their journey from the Federation of Adaptus to Petrium Naval Base.
The vessels will be offically named and accepted in to the Imperial armed forces at the end of this next week, in a ceremony that is to be attended by both Commodus III, Holy Emperor of Tagmatium and the Adaptine (Adaptite/Adaptian?) President.
After this, it is rumoured that there will be a war-game organised to break the vessels in.
