So yes, this will be a AAR about Iraq. Why Iraq? Just because they have lots of oil
If I had thought more earlier, then I should have picked Iran...
diplo- very easy or default, dont remember.
Wv- very high.
Many grammar mistakes-yes (because I use an Estonian Firefox, and it doesnt check English grammar
Hullu MDC mod 1.24.
I will look after Estonia (obviously) and Czech republic (no idea why), help my other allies (Egypt, and the Saudis), have some allies I dont really care about (Syria, Jordan, Angola, Algeria) and dislike almost everybody else.
Because I am 1 year into the game, I wont post any ingame-pictures right now.
As I had become the president of Iraq, my first moves were to start building many oil derricks, research centers, aircraft factories and land factories.
Because thanks to Hullus big mistake, all the world was (and is) epicly short of oil. (current oil market price is 850$ per bbl). I think you can guess, where my money comes from.
So, anyway, I looked at my military, and discovered, that its... kÃ¶hh-kÃ¶hh... not the strongest in the bunch. Huge amounts of Hummers and light infrantry, some tanks, some ancient artillery (everything is towed!), even older AA. Those are the land forces. They are almost sufficent. But the air force... Some L-39 trainers, some Mi-8 helis, 2 C-130 and some few small Russian fixed wing transports. And the Navy was even worse: 12 patrol boats (couldnt carry missiles).
So, after I had made sure, what I have, I DOW-ed Kuwait.
Why? Because I could
. (And those pesky Americans were busy with Mexico and Cuba).
It was a nice and a short battle, altho, my troops failed to understand that I want their army intact :( . I only got their Oil Derricks and 1 M1 tank. (I think I got an Apache and 1 C-130 too, but Im not sure, perhaps I had them earlier, perhaps not
After Kuwait was dead, I looked if anyone had noticed anything. They hadnt
. So my oil production rised from 1 m bbl per day to 2m per day. And that meant: more money for me!
So sometime went past, and the bloody jews DOW-ed me. Cause they were already fighting with almost all the Mid-East, I didnt care much about it. Altho, I tried to supply Syrian troops with my C-130-s. But 1 of them got shot down almost instantly, so I didnt try that again. After the Jews offered peace (asking 500m to prove that they are still Jews) I accepted, cause keeping my DEFCON on 3 would have drained more money in long term.
At somepoint Russia DOW-ed Estonia, which meant that I sent them all of my modern weaponry
(To Estonia, not to Russia) (So bye-bye Abrams and BTR-3U)+ alot of oil, money and MG.
Time went past, I started building more things, as the oil money started coming in. I researched some things. (like Basic Missiles) Bought the Gripen and SEP-W from Sweden, Leo 2 A5 from Germany and S-400 from Russia, watched how my idiotic workers made some S-400-s. (cause they were absolutely horrible, I sent them to Estonia. They didnt deploy them
) Those morons made some Lions(not Leos) too, I kept those for myself
I also started building some Gripens. I wonder if they will fly?
I hope so.
Anyway, at somepoint IRAN DOW-ed me. :( Due to the fact that I was playing Warcraft III at the moment I didnt notice it at first
). So, I took over, when computer had succesfully gained the initative. It was a nice war with lots of casualities on both sides. (my casualities page shows 359/177/279,425) I occupied most of their oil derricks and when I had almost all of them, I offered peace. (because I was way too weak to take their capital) They happily accepted. In that war I lost all of my navy and one third of my land forces (+ discovered that trainers arent good for air combat).
And now, May 12 2011. Iran DOW-ed me again.
At least the saudies are fighting them too
