The Estoniadom Army is testing a new organizational Battalion structure the the Commonwealth is implementing.
The Estoniadom Army has plan is to have 2 armored companies and 1 company of mechanized infantry for the typical engagement.
About half the training is conducted with this organization with other half either in Mechanized infantry training or Armored training.

Estoniadom is prepared to deploy special weapons as needed.
When asked if any SS-21 were deployed on the RoRo? Chief of the Army, Samski said, “I can neither confirm nor deny that any special weapons are deployed on a RoRo or anywhere else for that matter.”

Atlantic Ocean
Following the 5.21 task force FFG,Perry class and Type 23 are on station just behind and to the northwest, respectively. A DDH with a FFG Type 23 and 2 DDGs, Type 45 and Burke and supply ship.
Lynx and SH-60 D and R monitor TF 5.21 more closely. Occasional F-35 was detected and spotted by the EE TF, so they know a carrier is somewhere beyond visual range. SSGN Florida class is east of the Falkland Islands which is south and in front of the TF 5.21.

Tankers’ Ball: this task force is turning more westerly passing Igloolik, NC, through the Northwest Passages. We have formed a single file of the ships for ease and safety for any ships heading a Southey direction.

Greenlanddom is highly concerned how the 4 carrier NC Navy will exert its influence in the region. So far it has been hospitable and peaceful. The Commonwealth is working on a base with permission from NC. Greatly appreciative.
When the carriers arrive will they only sail around the Hudson Bay, sail in the Northwest Passages. NC does not need carriers for that. The airbases provide a much lower cost for defense of the home country. Carriers are a force projection asset.

Well its a pretty big "IF" Chris. The 4 carrier plan may not even happen at all if it proves to be unfeasible. And you maybe right its cheaper to keep land bases near the arctic for home defence. For now the carrier plan remains on the drawing board.

NC does appreciate the help from our CofC Ally, hopefully our help in guiding the CofC fleet through the Northwest Passage will help improve NCs reputation.

Karmanaskis agrees with this view. There is no need for NC to have four carriers or even plan for it!
Just for clarity and openness, that new 700+ foot hull under construction in the Karma dock yard that is showing up on pesky satellite photos, I can explain that.
The Karma Navy is in fact building a large helicopter carrier as a multi role ship. The KDF will class it as a LHD.

Karmanaskis's point has been conceded, The NCAF has cancelled the order for the 2 Midway Class Carriers and the expansion of the FAA s aircraft compliment.

The Names of HMCS Bonaventure, and HMCS Magnificent that where planned for the Midways due to the scrapping of the previous ships under those names will be transferred to a non carrier class of ships instead.

As aircraft carriers are ‘force projection’ assets. They may be used to keep the sea lanes open. Provide aircraft for a relief effort, take refugees, distribute supplies, cover for a military operation. The UK has 2 carriers. The UK also has amphibious ships and LHP/LHD type ships, too.
NC could go with some sort of assault ships, including a ‘harrier’ carrier, helicopter carrier, etc. Consider a Kiev Class with YAK....

We are actually planning on acquiring 2 Tarawa class LHAs for HMCS Nabob and HMCS Puncher as part of our New Amphibious fleet, maybe we can put 2 more Tarawas for the Bonaventure and Magnificent. We do have Harriers that are meant for the incomplete Invincible class CVL HMCS Maple Leaf.

NC might consider 1 or 2 LHAs, see how that goes. Government and Military budget constraints are always an issue, not just the purchase, but ongoing maintenance. Naval ships are always being worked on, even after a full rehabilitation in dry dock.
An idea, could just have the ship’s company just work on simulators.

OK will stick to just the Nabob and the Puncher as the Tarawa class for now.

The news out of Bueno Aires, Argentina is alarming with the EE convoy 5.21 approaching the Harbor that leads to Buenos Aires.
Speculation as to the cargo, believed to be weapons, vehicles etc.
Is EE supporting armed conflict?
Reports on the news in Buenos Aires is that riots took place, then marching to a wealthy neighbor that allegedly has many government leaders and civil servants reside. The local police indicated that over a dozen were killed, theft and other assaults.

From plotting schematic system ... from the CoC DDH Combat Info Center.

A MALE drone has been sent up to gather more specific info.

EE task force 5.21 turned into port docking in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
A couple of man portable drones were flown over the harbor to observe some of the unloading. The second drone was shot down with shotgun. Observed some agricultural vehicles. Then the second drone observed several military trucks loaded with boxes, a BMP-2 just before it was lost.
