Pennington-Reid Maritime Systems and Asvald Gruppen Maritime formally delivered 12 corvettes to the governments of Hawu Mumenhes and Lourenne, six (6) respectively, formally declaring the handover of the corvettes from Pennington-Reid to the respective governments. The delivery of the corvettes marks a technological milestone as the corvettes possess stealth capabilities never seen before on a combatant vessel. Resources from Pennington-Reid, Viserby Systems, Asvald Gruppen, Entreprise Des Défenseurs and Umkhiqizi ka Izikhali had been pooled together to create the combatant vessel formerly known under the name of Project CB002. Concept and design work on the CB002 had taken place since 4385, when it had been known as the Advance Attack Boat (AAB) underneath the Advanced Combatant Vessels (ACV) programme. The construction contract was awarded to Pennington-Reid and Viserby Systems and construction of 6 vessels for the Kazulian Navy had commenced in 4390. CB002 underwent sea trials in 4394 for an alpha test and a beta test was conducted in 4395.

During the beta test, the Kazulian Navy withdrew its order for 6 vessels after it found that a modernisation programme for the Torgersen-class frigate (Fridtjof Nansen-class frigate) instead of replacing the vessel with the proposed CB002. In 4396, the Hawu Mumenhes government announced its intentions of joining the programme through Umkhiqizi ka Izikhali (Ukl) placing an order for 6 of the vessels with the Lourennais government entering the programme through Entreprise Des Défenseurs, ordering a similar 6. Technological assets from Pennington-Reid, Asvald Gruppen and Viserby Systems had been heavily invested in the combat boat as it was the aims of the Project Lead, Pennington-Reid to develop a stealth corvette, capable of avoiding or reducing detection under ocean-going radar systems. In 4399, the Kazulian Government re-enter the programme posterior to the modernisation of the Torgersen-class frigates and the announced of the corvette's stealth capabilities. Initially it had ordered 18, however this number had been significantly reduced to 5.

With the delivery of the sets of 6 and 5 for the Lourennais, Hawu Mumenhes and Kazulian Governments, the respective vessels are to be commissioned within the weak by their respective owners. Variation of course is present as the Valois-class and the Hellerud-class, maintained by the Lourennais and Kazulian navies respectively come with an integrated command suit in accordance with Northern Council standards, meaning the vessel is capable of taking advantage of the technological assets deployed by the Northern Council, the Hawu Mumenhes variant does not possess these capabilities. Nonetheless, the Hawu Mumenhes variants possess all other components including stealth technology developed by Asvald Gruppen.

Kazulia reinforces Utembo garrison amid rumours
Amid leaked document of Xsampan invasion of Utembo, Skalm reinforces Utembo garrison.
22nd April 4407

Kazulia has sent troops to reinforce its garrison in Utembo in the face of a leaked document from the Xsampan Ministry of Defence which outlined the Xsampan military's plans for an invasion of Utembo and engagement against the garrison positioned in the nation. Kazulian Defence Command spokesman, Brigadier Michael Thorkelson stated that a contingent of around 5,000 soldiers, 20 transport helicopters, 15 transport planes, around 100 armoured vehicles and the HKMS-Queen Ingrid amphibious assault ship is in the process of being dispatched to the garrison in preparation for an assault by Xsampan forces and is expected to arrive in Utembo within the coming 48 hours. The troops to be sent to the Utembo garrison mainly consists of Royal Marines and Paratroopers apart of the Armed Forces' rapid reaction force. The Department of Foreign Affairs sent a letter to the Xsampan government warning them that aggressive action against the garrison within Utembo and the nation of Utembo itself will be viewed as a declaration of war and will result in armed hostilities between Kazulia and Xsampa.

Earlier this morning Staatsminister of the United Crownlands, Clemens Heumayr, Foreign Minister Hupold, Graf Michels and Finance Minister Severin Goddestreu arrived in Skalm for high-level diplomatic and economic talks with their Kazulian counterparts, namely Statsminister Harald Christiansen, Foreign Minister Sindre Granberg and Finance Minister Lisa Nyborg. According to government media releases the discussions held between the Hulstrian delegation and the Kazulian government ranged from issues such as the situation between Kazulia and Dankuk whereby Hulstria has offered to assist in negotiating the situation alongside Hawu Mumenhes to the proposed revival of the Dovani Economic Forum on the part of the Hulstrian delegation. As Kazulia's economy remains among the strongest in the eastern hemisphere, Statsminister Harald Christiansen stated that the move made by the Hulstrian delegation were "though driven" and "based on the factual belief that the economic potential of the crownlands could be unlocked through Kazulian assistance."

As a business delegation accompanied the Hulstrian delegation, in a move to increase diplomatic and trade relations between the Kingdom of Kazulia and the United Crownlands, the government has announced that through the Critical Investment and Stabilisation Fund (CISF), the government will be investing heavily into the crownlands order to unlock its full potential and to allow for various economic discussions to be championed by the Hulstrian government in the future. Various kazulian corporations, both private and public have also shown great interest into investing into the Hulstrian economy with one business pushing for the opening of a branch in the nation. Corporations such as Gasstrien, Warton Danver, Sorthamnmetall, Verdalros Alternex, and Asvald Gruppen have expressed great pleasure in the government's move towards investing into Hulstria's economy. With Kazulia recently bouncing back into the practice of heavy industry companies such as Warton Danver, Sorthamnmetall and Alternex Verdalros have expressed eagerness of investing into Hulstrian heavy industry practices.

According to Chairman of Gasstrien, Norbert Arielsson stated that the company intends on assisting the Hulstrian government in the area of renewable energy. Arielsson stated that the Hulstrian government should make positive steps towards a cleaner Hulstria, through renewable energy resources. It was stated that (with government permission), several wind farms and two (2) hydroelectric stations could be constructed as a means of introducing an alternative form of energy into the Hulstrian power generation dossier. Apart from this, Alternex Verdalros (the second largest mining company in Kazulia) announced that it intends on expanding its Dovanian market portfolio through Hulstria. Chairman and CEO of Alternex (the second largest oil and natural gas company in Kazulia and the parent company of Alternex Verdalros), Aleksi Pietarinen stated that the possibility of the company being able to expand its Dovanian market portfolio through Hulstria, will not only be beneficial to the company but to the government and the citizenry of Hulstria as well.

State-owned Defence Manufacturing company, Asvald Gruppen has announced its intention on selling weapons systems to the Hulstrian military once a formal trade agreement is established between the two nations. According to the company's chairman Luukas Asikainen, the company is willing to commence research and development operations jointly with the Hulstrian government on the procurement of weapons systems which will suit the defencive needs of Hulstria. He announced that the company had invested a total of 5 Billion KKR into universities across Hulstria, who have a strong emphasis on engineering and technological research. He stated: "We must pave the way for the development and growth of our future leaders and decision-makers. In Kazulia this company has invested more than 5 Billion KKR into engineering education programmes throughout various educational institutions, and with this company expanding operations in Hulstria, I think that an investment into such a crucial education programme is necessary."

Statsminister Christiansen and Staatsminister Heumayr launched talks on the revival of the Dovanian Economic Forum and also begun negotiations on the launch of a Kazulian-economic project, the revival of the Eight Economies (EE) alliance. Statsminister Christiansen stated that the Dovanian Economic Forum promoted economic dialogue and cooperation within an extremely divided region. He stated that through its revival the region as a whole can work together closer cooperation and collectivism. On the premise of Eight Economies, Christiansen has invited Heumayr to work with him on the reformation/revival of the organisation, citing that Hulstria's economy showed great potential and that is what the Eight Economies alliance needs, developed and developing economies coming together on the basis of collectivism and mutual benefit.

Kazulia warns Kalistan over blocking trade routes
Kazulia has warned the Kalistani Government against "closing" portions of the Anantonese Sea.

Earlier this morning on the background of the nation's claims of the strait of Anato as sovereign territory, Kalistan announced that the strait had been closed to the international community and that non-aligned shipping through the aforementioned strait "constitues a strict violation of Kalistani Sovereignty, and represents an immediate Casus Belli for Kalistan". Reacting to the claims made by the Kalistani government, a spokesperson from the 2nd Fleet which is responsible for patrolling the bodies of waters between Seleya and Dovani as well as responding to instance with regional implications, stated that the 2nd Fleet was prepared to re-open the strait under international law saying: "The free flow of goods and services through the Strait is vital to regional and international trade. Individual nations or entities who threaten the disrupt freedom of navigation through international waters clearly have little to no interest in upholding international law; disruptions against shipping of any kind in international waters will not be tolerated." The strait allows for commercial and military shipping to reduce time spent navigating around Anato's eastern flank by being able to cut through the straits and transit into the central seleya and south-western Dovani, with large amounts of commercial shipping passing through the straits annually. Kazulia, through the 2nd Fleet has conducted several patrols of the strait in the past as a means of keeping the strait open and curbing the influence of pirates operating within the Anantonese Ocean.

Kalistan's closure of the Strait comes amid the nation's belief that its "historic" influence as the "Guarantor of the Anantonse Ocean" is waning as various nations specifically Lourenne is moving to expand their respective naval forces. Kalistan argues that Lourenne's procurement of combatant vessels from Kazulia was a threat to the nation's sovereignty, however Lourenne has expressed little to no intention of threatening the sovereignty of Kalistan and reiterated that it was well within its right to operate combatant and commercial shipping through the Straits similar to rights reserved by other nations in the international community, including Kalistan itself. Kalistan has gone so far as to warn the commercial shipping through the recently "closed" strait would have to obtain a writ of passage in-order to traverse the waters under their supervision, with warnings stating the non-compliance could result in commercial ships being fired upon. Kalistan went further to say that "Refusing to acknowledge our territorial waters will be viewed as an act of War against the United Republic of Kalistan." Chief of Defence Admiral David Vestergaard stated that the 2nd Fleet had been dispatched to the Anantonese Ocean and upon confirmation from Skalm will willingly escort commercial vessels through the supposed closed strait. Vestergaard stressed the importance on the rule of international law, citing that although Kalistan withdrew from the Law of the Sea treaty, it has no legal right to close to strait to commercial shipping or military transit through the strait itself.

Kazulian Naval High Command has dispatched additional intelligence assets to the Majatran Sea and the Anantonese Ocean as tensions in the respective areas of gradual reaching their climax, in an attempt to reinforce the efforts of Northern Council satellites positioned over the regions. Under the banner of expanding the surveillance network established in Majatra and establishing a surveillance bubble in the Anantonese Ocean, the Kazulian Navy has dispatched Z-6 "Kraken" (P-8 Poseidon) maritime patrol aircraft to the respective regions. A spokesperson from the Department of Defence stated that the assets were being deployed to the regions as the GAMS-1 & 2 satellites positioned over Majatra and Eastern Seleya respectively were unable to track the movement of warships, mainly due to the fact that the satellites were made to track and designate aircraft, which the spokesperson stated was actively tracking Vanukean and Deltarian aircraft operating within Jelbania's airspace. With Kazulia expanding its surveillance assets in the respective regions, it is expected the movements of naval, air and land assets fielded by the respective players in the respective regions would be underneath almost complete surveillance.

Defence Minister Gudhlek Lundberg stated that moves being made by the respective players in the respective regions increased the chances of a military miscalculations. Lundberg cited the situation developing in Jelbania as being too close to a military miscalculations for comfort. Last year, the Lister NBG-596 satellite had been credited with provided satellite imagery of Vanukean and Deltarian positions across Jelbania whereby the information had been provided to the World Congress Security Council. According to Naval High Command in Skalm, the Z-6 Krakens being deployed to Majatra are expected to drop sonobuoys along Jelbania, Deltaria, Zardugal and Vanuku's economic exclusion zones (EEZ) and the z-6 Krakens being deployed to the Anantonese Sea are expected to drop sonobuoys in the southern and northern approaches of the Anantonese Ocean as a means of tracking combatant vessels traversing the straits towards the Anantonese Ocean. According to a former Z-6 Kraken pilot, the aircraft are usually armed with depth charges, torpedoes and anti-ship missiles.

Kazulia begins building third and fourth aircraft carrier
Announcement of additional carrier construction comes amid tensions in Anantonese Sea.

The Department of Defence announced that it has started construction of its third and forth aircraft carriers, signalling the nation's aforementioned intentions of expanding its maritime capabilities in accordance with Northern Council standards. The announcement by the Department of Defence comes amid tensions in Anantonese Sea following Kalistan's blockade of the straits between Anato and mainland Kalistan as the nation claims the strait as sovereign territory. According to analysts the expansion and modernisation of the Kazulian Armed Forces comes as the nation aims to field an extremely modern and combat capable force by which it can use to protect its interests and the interests of others. Officials within the Department of Defence stated that the new carriers will be conventionally powered and will not nuclear powered as some speculations have suggested prior to now. The officials stated that the decision for the aircraft carriers to be conventionally powered, similar to the HKMS-Queen Annette and HKMS-Skalm, comes as the Kazulian Navy through observations from their Hutorian counterparts highlighted that nuclear reactions cannot be quickly re-started in cold weather conditions. According to an engineers at Skalm University, a careful sequence of procedures is required to start a nuclear reactor and the steam plant to prevent heat from damaging the vessels systems. The benefit of the diesel electric engines used in the Queen-Annette-class aircraft carrier is that the engines can be started and shut down quickly. It had been highlighted that in-order for a vessel to be cleared for service within the Kazulian Navy, it must undergo extreme cold weather trials aimed at putting the vessel's systems under stress.

Similar to the HKMS-Queen Annette and Skalm, the two new carriers will field a fleet of Z-35 Stealth multi-role fighter and will be launched through STOVL configurations, however research is being made into CATOBAR capabilities. Analysts say the new carrier underscores Kazulia's efforts to field navy that can safeguard its growing overseas interests through combat effectiveness and technological superiority. Under the Northern Council, the Kazulian Navy is set to expand naval patrols throughout the Northern Hemisphere in an open seas campaign as the alliance moves perform a wide range of tasks, from participating in exercises to crisis response and real world operational missions. Some have been quick the criticise the use of conventional power as an analyst from the Reinnar Defence Institute stated that the ships' reliance on conventional propulsion means they will have shorter ranges, however an official from the Department of Defence stated nuclear powered carriers still needed to resupply on food and jet fuel, thus although it has an unlimited range through its nuclear reactors it will have to resupply on food and jet fuel thus the carriers in service and in development will not gain from having nuclear reactors when as the carrier is being resupplied on food and jet fuel, its engines can be refuelled simultaneously. Construction and sea trials for the aircraft carriers are expected to be completed by 4415. With the vessels to be commissioned in 4416 under the $20 billion dollar programme.

Kazulia strikes Kalistani warships over destroying cargo vessel in strait

Commodore Julian Williamsen speaking before to media on the incidents within the Strait of Anato

The Royal Kazulian Navy clashes with forces of the Kalistani Navy across the Strait of Anato, sinking two Kalistani destroyers and several gunboats. According to Commodore Julian Williamsen the attack began when the Kalistani Navy attacked a commercial cargo ship traversing through the strait under escort from the Kazulian Navy. Retaliatory action was taken by the Kazulian Navy after it destroyed two Kalistani destroyers and several smaller gunboats. The warships sought to cripple Kalistan's capability to close to strait of Anato after the aforementioned retaliatory action sought to cripple the nation's navy. Commordore Williamsen stated that the actions of the Kazulian Navy to the unlawful attack on nonbelligerent shipping was restrained and that the Kalistani Navy continues to breach international law as it pertains to its self-proclaimed possession of the Strait of Anato as sovereign territory. In a similar instance the Kalistani Navy had engaged and destroyed a Lourennais frigate after it had traversed through the straits. Since the initial declaration by the Kalistani Navy, Kazulia and Lourenne have remained determined to keep the straits open to commercial shipping and the movement of combatant vessels under the Law of the Sea agreement.

Defence Department officials stating that several Kalistani sailors were captured after the wreckages of the KRS-52 Kracken and the KRS-57 Balrog. According to Commodore Williamsen they had been taken up by the HKMS-Åge Esse Support Ship and the HKMS-Robin Wagle frigate/destroyer after the HKMS-Åge Esse destroyed the KRS-57 Balrog and the KRS-52 Kracken. Marine-Spesialkommando units descended on the stranded crew arresting all and having them transferred to Asvanger Prison in Dreton. It has been stated that the prisoners will be released after negotiations between the Kalistani Government and the Kazulian Government have been made. According to a guard within the prison, prisoners of war are separated from other prisoners and are given particular attention especially as it pertains to their health and well-being whilst being held in the prison. Although Kazulia is renowned for its reformist prison system which stresses the importance of rehabilitation and reintegration, Asvanger Prison is no representation of this reformist system as the prison refuses to compromise on the sentiment of punishment in exchange for "rehabilitation."
Commodore Julian Williamsen, Principle Media Relations Officers for the Department of Defence wrote:In recent months, we have seen Kaliburg's decision to claim the Strait of Anato as sovereign territory of the United Republic of Kalistan. Under this attempt to undermine international law as established by the Law of the Sea agreement, the nation has insisted that the strait is available to the allies of the nation, and non-aligned parties who intend on traversing the strait must obtained a writ of transit. Through intimidation and the use of its navy, the nation enforces the sentiment that the strait is not International waters but is Kalistan's sovereign territory. Let it be known, that the straits will remain open to commercial and military shipping, regardless of the illegal claims of the Kalistani government. The Kazulian Navy is here to stay as it will ensure that the straits remain open and commercial/military shipping through the strait will go without harassment from the Kalistani Government. Its repeated attempt to reassert its self-proclaimed dominance in the Anantonese Sea.The Anantonese Ocean is not a hegemonic play ground (as previously mentioned by the Kalistani government where it stated that the title of "Guarantor of the Anantonese Ocean" was reserved to the Kalistani Navy. The Anantonese Ocean, in all of its capacity aside from the economic exclusion zones as established by the Law of the Sea agreement, is an open body of water whereby every and any nation has the right to operate within, similar to the rights reserved by the Kalistani government in its ability to operate within the Anantonese Ocean.


The Department of Defence has slammed Vanuku's arming of Kalistan's Armed Forces amid the nation's attempt to close the Strait of Anato, which shipping from Majatran nations traverses through. The Vanukean Government according to Kalistani state media has supplied the nation with submarines, frigates, destroyers, multi-role fighters and other associated equipment. Commodore Williamsen stated that Department of Defence condemns Vanuku's arming of the Kalistani Navy as it increasing the nation's ability to restrict the movement of commercial vessels through the Strait of Anato. Commodore Williamsen said: "The Vanukean government arms the Kalistani Navy as its commercial shipping through the ocean will not be harassed by the Kalistani Navy as they will be viewed as an "ally" of the nation.
