After seizing New Zealand, Brazil entered a state of economic reform.
New Zealand became the centre of Biofuel production, as well as hydroponics and alternative energy. Twenty research centres were constructed, and the technology available to Brazil expanded greatly. Now at tech level 112, Brazil is the worlds 31st leading nation of technology. Vast reforms of military doctrine has led to the development of new divisions. Former enemy units are now scrapped, and replaced with more efficient units. The Navy of Brazil expanded, from its former three fleets, it now has Eleven. Each fleet carries some form of ground unit now, in case a need to deploy a temporary force arises. The Brazilian Air Force is pretty much the same, with the exception that all Transport Helicopters have been replaced with CV-22's. There was a long war with Côte d'Ivoire, in which I invaded them and split the land with Mali and Nigeria. The reason for invasion was Project Africa had been deemed a failure. (Give an African nation the most advanced tech I had at the time, and let them seize large tracts of land before taking their capital, and through it, the land.) The countries of Africa became incredibly hostile towards me, and it began to kindle international fires. The war was bloody, but with no unit losses. Plenty wounded, though. The Paranã division saw action, along with the 1st Ranger Battalion. The rangers landed by CV-22 in the city of Abidjan. They proceeded to secure the city and surrounding hexes. I also forgot to mention, I had the D1000 destroyers (about twelve) outside the city providing long range bombardment. I had my five Iowa-class battleships proving close range support, as well. To sum up the attack, the Rangers attacked from the east, the Paranã from the west. The Capitol was surrounded, and quickly secured. Unfortunately, once you take a country, you also inherit their problems. Starvation was rampant. I built a massive fortress around the borders of my African territory, and within its walls, hydroponics, water facilities, airfields, barracks, nuclear power, etc. The land that was once Côte d'Ivoire will be my future "Capitol" of African affairs.
Ten thousand men descending from the clouds might do an infinite deal of mischief before a force could be brought together to repel them
