After The Operations Dixie Freedom, Due Justice, and Southern Bell my military was in good order.
15 light infantry, 4 M1A1's , 6 Bradley's , 2 Hercules AA, 3 F-16's,
2 F-15's, 3 c-130's, 2 Super Stallions, 1 Globemaster, 8 Stimgray's (i bought from the WM),
4 M270's, 3 Paladin's, 1 Awacs, 3 rangers, 3 speical forces, and several garrisons.

My only problem is with this force is that its small because in the next scenario i was pitted aganist 4 other regions.

Kentucky, Carolina, Arkansa, and Florida which Florida and and Carolina had a number of naval vessels as well a number of ground units. (seen em with the AWACS And Kentucky and Arkanas had also a number of ground units and Arkanas had a navy too which with their navies and me with NO navy this scenario be hard. And their combined army would seriously kill me and besides i won the last scenario through war these regions would jump at the chance to kill me out.

And on top of all this I had power problems as well as money but my DAR was good because i went with high social spending and lower taxes in the last scenario.

First things first I had to fix the power problem as well as build up my army. So i built some nuclear power plants which i had to develop through research. BTW my research Eff. is over 600% I put the budget money in the last Scenario to the max spending and i know that is were my money problems are but i am researching things that would take years in only days.

Then i went about building up my army starting with the light infantry (rather have the medium infantry but that take me 60 more days to research). Then i build some M1A1's that i had slots lefted for.
The airforce was lacking so i built some more F-16's (wish i had that F-22A but that take awhile to get.) After some of the light infantry were built i started to build the best artierlly (still can't spell that right). I set the 25 light infantry with the 6 bradley's in 4 groups 4 light infantry to 1 bradley and set them 4 hexes from the border where i figured they might attack (seen some units moving some in these areas) with the last 2 bradley's and light infantry i send to very middle of my region as a last line of defense. After the art was finished which was about 10 or so (i built more after these ones being built were finished) i set them with the paladins as a 4 to 1 paladin ratio and set them behind the 4 infantry groups. Then finally after awhile the tanks were built had 12 so with everything else i had i grouped em up in 4's and sent them all to the areas i thought conflict might happen at. And finally i had the power plants i built at 30% or so i activated them giving me some power that helped me alot.

Now was the decision to attack or wait.

I attacked. first Florida because of that damn navy they hadto the south of me. And with the attack all hell broke lose. The 3 other regions declared war on me.

There i was being attacked by 3 differnet directions while i was trying to get florida's army to retreat some. But no. I had to readjust my other groups to counter attack. I miss the mark by 10 or so hexes on where they were going to attack in force. My infantry groups i put in the front with tanks then the art. I was being pushed back while some of my units were retreating. I started to make air sorties over the battle fields. After awhile i started to hold them with most the tanks art with the air support helping. But all hope of gainng lost ground was slipping fast. But in all this i started a plan a massive air drop on to one of kentucky and arkanas's airports. I had the rangers, special forces, and the stingrays and i had the means to use them in the plan.

So I set about dividing the stingrays so they could be used in the globemaster and c-130's. Got the Stallions out of reserve. But time was starting to be aganist me. After i had just enough time i sent the stallions loaded with the special forces and rangers to the airports with what f-16's and f-15's i could use that weren't being used for sorties to escort the helos to the airports. There was interceptors that tried to get my helos but lucky they got to the airports. There was a intense fight at both airports but lucky it was only garrison. I set the forces their to entrench so i could get the stingray's there but i had to wait for the escorts to get back. Then i made the run again with the stingrays lost a c-130 getting to kentucky but the other made it. The globemaster had no problems. with the stingrays on the ground i started to use them behind the lines to gain ground which caused the armies that invaded me from kentucky and arkansa to turn and start to head the way the stingrays were. But that was what i wanted to do. Buy me some time. I sent the stingray's back to the airport and entrench. Also i sent the some more stingrays to the those airports and kept doing that until i had no more to send. And while i was doing this i sent some of the armies that weren't fighting anymore to the other fronts. And that's as far as i got I know that i will lose in the end i just don't have enough units. But never know i might actually win.

Hopefully i can win but if not i still give an update on this.

Good and bad news the good first arkanas and kentucky have pulled back from the lines because of my stingrays and special operations at the airports but a battle at these places isn't far away. the bad florida as taken more of my region even with me battling them they were more than i expected and they got that damn navy helping some but carolina i have checked and starting to gain ground.

the death count is soaring 50000 of mine dead and 120000 of their's.

The WM is helping all of my enemies but every now again they help me too.

I'm still making air sorties and building units. starting to lost alot of money but this war will take awhile and it looks like i might even win it if i could just get more units in time. Finally got the medium infantry hope they make a difference.

More updates to come.

Well got some good news now. Florida is getting beat back alot now and the carolinas are all but taken got their capital to deal with but still there is bad news Arkansas took the airport back so i expect company to the west soon. The Kentucky airport is still mine and i'm pushing to relieve the units there but this war is costly 56000 and some odd numbers dead and my enemies with 64000 this war is becoming an offense. Money and time is what i need now. Got 15 more med infantry coming with them i can contain Arkansas and finish either florida or the carolinas

You need more arty if you plan to set up good defences.

Long wait on the update had things i had to take care of.

Anyways. If u read the other AAR Destruction of Charolette u see i took carolina it was a bloody battle carolina lost over 75 units me with 35 but carolina had there capital destoryed so i think they had the bad end of the deal.

Now that carolina is gone i got other problems Arkansas is moving east into my region but i will use some of the units that are in what was carolina and then use the other units aganist kentucky in a 2nd front and i got 10 days to go to get 15 more medium infantry. as well as some arty. Got a plan with the arty to destroy eveyone one of the capitals.

As for Florida i have pushed all the way to miami nearly but they have too many units to push through to key west. So i got to wait for the medium infantry and some of the arty to be built to finally conquer florida.

Finally i got my med infantry and arty which the self propel m109a6. With em i set up just north of miami and moved the army that was there to east then south trying to stay from shores. the other regions navies could kill me there. i then set the arty as close as i could to miami and moved the med infantry that was with em just north to counter any amry that might move on to the arty. Then i set the arty to begin to bomb the hell out of the capital. When this happen there came a rush of humvees out from the 2 bases south of miami so i sent my infantry to counter. Beat em back. and actually decided to rush the miami area with the east and north armies. Took 2 weeks and high death count but i took miami but the AI moved its capital to Key west. Now i got tired of taking capitals so i set the arty i had as close to Key West as i could and set the arty to bomb it. Took another 2 months but i wiped Key West off the map.
After that Florida fell and i conquered another region.

Kentucky was all but taken and alot of fighting has been going on there but with an army outnumbering them i was winning some. But i took the infantry units i had in Florida and sent em to the Kentucky and Arkansas fronts. Arkansas had push deep into my region but they messed put because i had encircled 3 tank and 2 humvee and an recon and sent what army i had in the area to wipe em out. Hoping the part of the Florida army i sent to the area will get there in time. And they did. So i was able to destroy an whole army andi thought i had an open road to Jackson but i didn't because half way to jackson i ran into an other army and a battle began at this same time i had took all but the northern part of Kentucky with the help of the part of the Florida army i sent there. And that's as far as i got.

The battle in Arkansas had over a 100 units involved and i'm outnumbered. I didn't think they had that many units. its was like 5 to 1. Where they kept all em units i never know because i got pushed back across my border and Arkansas actually was taking my lands again. In kentucky i finally beat it took alot of men and units which i lost about half of. I lost most of em taking the capital So after Kentucky fell i sent all the units i had to the Arkansas front even if they were about to die because Arkansas was gaining alot of ground and the reunify vote was only 3 months away. After alot of fighting across the border i finally regain my lands but couldn't take any of Arkansas's. everytime i tried they would send units to the area and a major fight start which i would lose because of being outnumber. And with the money about gone i couldn't build units that would help in time. So in 2 months Arkansas had pushed to about 36km of my capital and with me fighting all the way and losing units. I tried air sorties to push Arkansas back it helped some but in the end of the 3 months to the reunify vote i won because i took out the other 3 regions but lost alot of good units trying. So on to the next region but i think i try something differnet next time.
