Chancellery Makes Statement on Alliance With Russia

KOENIGSBERG (AP): After the unveiling of a large bronze statue of American author Robert Heinlein at a patriotic rally at a downtown republic service center, Prussian Chancellor Jaap von Huack stated that Prussia ever remains a close ally and friend of Russia. He further stated that the rumored military pullout from Camp Condor in Karakistan was untrue, that some equipment and troops had been returned for repair and leave only. He further went on to state that Prussia remains committed to fulfilling our military assistance pledge to our Russian allies and will continue to take the fight to the Karakistani Rebels and the insidious Lions of Allah.

He also added that at the same time our assistance for the Mafeking Heinleinist Front would continue. Further that Prussia's UN obligation to the anti-piracy patrols would be expanded to include coastal operations and harbor patrols.

When asked about increased recruitment numbers the Chancellor confirmed that the military was upping it's manning levels. There has always been one combat brigade on duty in Prussia at all times while it's brother brigades operate in Karakistan and Afrika. The home brigade will be increased to division level.

The Chancellor was also asked about the speculation concerning a Prussian nuclear weapon. The Chancellor dismissed this as false stating that Prussia will honor its commitment to maintain their nuclear facilities for domestic energy uses only.

That's great news, Jeff, I'm looking forward to new fights. Marble some 5Core action?

Hi Jack,
For certain on the 5Core. Wish I had discovered those rules sooner. The shock and kill dice have given me the gritty feel I was missing.

Absolutely, and I love the fact you have all the fire results (who's out, who's down, who's pinned, and who's suppressed) with one quick die roll.

I've used the rules for fire team up to battalion, regulars vs elites and insurgents, you name it. A very flexible system.

And regarding 5MIN activation vs 5MAK activation (either of which can be used at any echelon of game) is this: 5MIN rolls one dice and this determines what the whole force can do (scurry, normal, firefight). 5MAK rolls one dice for every unit (stand or vehicle), and you assign each dice to one unit and carry out the action appropriate to the dice.

V/R,
Jack

Thanks Jack for clarifying those two up for me. I think the OCD in me is going to require me to purchase both anyhow. Like you I love the one die roll and done. That is perfect for solo-play. It's another reason I like One Hour Wargames so much.

No sweat man, and I'm with you on OCD. I find the rules great for solo gaming; the activation roll throws up the friction for you, the combat is quick, and it's all straightforward (not too much to remember or track for someone running both sides).

V/R,
Jack
