Andaluciae has announced that the time has come to activate the selective service reserve corp. This is the first time such a step has been taken. We have 5% of our population, or 92,900,000 soldiers in the volunteer force. We will activate another 2% of our population for the Conscripted force. This will add 37,160,000 personnel to our armed forces. They will undergo a 2 month (game time) training period and then be ready for service. The addition of the conscripted troops will allow Andaluciae to have a military of 130,060,000 personnel.
We will also be temporarily nationalizing vital industry temporarily and all airlines will be required to temporarily surrender all of their larger planes(747, A380)to the Andaluciaen Transport Division, but will be allied to maintain their smaller planes(727, 707).
The Nuclear corp will henceforth be on war alert, and any incoming object will be shot down and retaliated to.
The quick strike ready force is being assembled and sent to Fijar aboard the Andaluciaen transport divisions airships and heavy transport planes. This will total a force commitment of 60,000 soldiers and 1000 tanks with all support.
The Andaluciaen nation is to henceforth be considered on a war footing. A final decision is pending consultation with our allies.
General Henry J. Tschanz
Supreme Consul Andrew von Beppler
As of today the 12th infantry and 3rd armored divisions have teamed up with the forces already in Fijar to form the IV Corp.
The 9th Infantry division, the 2cd heavy armored division and the 190th Marine brigade have arrived in Fijar and are preparing to form the VI corp.
Light transports and Fijarian transports will be used for any naval actions taking place.
The Andaluciaen Navy is selling the Norse I class battleships. We intend to replace these with Norse II class battleships. As such, we have already received offers for 25 of the ships, and we are using two as memorials. The others will be sold.
