    The Revenge of the Bear

    Intermezzo 8 : God Must Be Lazy 3



    Governorates of Odessa and Taurica



    The two industrialized governorates of the wider area known as New Russia, Odessa and Taurica produce many goods. Odessa is geared towards explosives and small arms, whilst Taurica produces a bit of everything, I have not yet decided which way to take it.



    Governorates of Kursk and Samara



    The factory in Samara popped up due to an event. The state has a low population so staffing just that one factory pretty much depleted the available POPs. I included it into the Kursk screenshot simply because I needed to place it somewhere and the Kursk pic lacked a square.

    As far as Kursk is concerned, it is a developing industrial heartland on the borders between Greater Russia and Little Russia. As you can see, Russia’s only artillery factory is located there. I do not need a high artillery production for now as I only have very, very few artillery-equipped divisions in my otherwise gigantic Russian Imperial Army.

    However, I shall be increasing the size of that factory over the coming years. After all, I am catching up in naval tech with the evil bad Brits (did I mention they were evil?) and ships like cannons very much. Otherwise, they can't do useful stuff like shoot at other ships.



    Governorates of Tsaritsyn and Saratov



    Two industrially important areas. They produce whatever God… euh, I mean, the Capitalists AI sends me. And it seems that booze is ever present in that AI *nodnod*



    Governorates of Nijniy Novgorod



    Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Lumber Mill of the Russian Empire! Before the expansion into China, most of Russia’s timber came from here and was turned locally into lumber. With the recent expansions, Chinese forests are mercilessly cut down to feed the sawmills thousands of miles away, whilst local forests are regrowing to the delight of mushroom hunters from all over the Empire.



    Bulgaria, Governorate of Tsargrad, General-Governorate of Alaska



    Of the “three western sisters”, Bulgaria resembles Mom Russia the most, both being conservative and orthodox. Before the liberation of Bulgaria by her incorporation into the Russian Empire, the region lived off a lumber mill. Now the region also produces glass and steamer convoys.

    As far as Constantinople is concerned, Russia inherited two factories from the times of the ruthless evil bad rotten Turkish infidel occupation (did I mention that the occupation was evil?) which did not improve much since then. Their output has somewhat been reduced when Turks, including craftsmen and clerks were “escorted into Anatolia”.

    As far as Alaska is concerned, Russia’s breach of the Monroe Doctrine fares extremely well. With a population of about 500’000, it has a fully functioning canned food factory.

    Hm. I am not doing an industrial overview again in a looooong time.

    Stnylan: Indeed. *hugs his factories*

    Robou: It took a while to get there, but I ain't stopping. There's room for improvement as more and more craftsmen POPs hit the 40k mark.

    Jape: So she does. Number 1 in industrial score

    Your Moscow Steel Factory would make the Soviets proud.

    Mother Russia is a hungry bear, huh. For some reason though I've got this idea that you probably gain your most useful factories from the VIP event sets rather than the capitalists. I know mine always went that way: after a while they just keep spamming the furniture/glass/liquor/wine set and no useful "heavy" industry. Furniture in particular was a big headache since they kept expanding it without correspondingly expanding my lumber mills and chemical factories as well. I don't know if I should be happy that my capitalists trust me to provide for them (ha! socialists-in-rich-clothing) or if I should be annoyed I need to keep cleaning up after their mess.

    Still, I need to appreciate them free factories; and I admit their tendency to build the synthetic dye factories are nice.

    Oh, and kudos to an epic industry update! I don't think anyone ever had the guts to do one before even in the most micromanagement-heavy AAR's. I sure wouldn't want to go through the trouble myself.

    The Revenge of the Bear

    Chapter 14 : “Congratulations, General-Fieldmarshal. Alexander” – Part 1


    But Alexander Alexandrovitch had other plans.

    And his plans were to once and for all remove the thorn in the side of the Russian Empire that was the Indian Empire of the British Crown. The two Empires had fought each other in shadows and in the open for already half a century, but the conflict to come would be of unprecedented proportions. First of all, by the amount of forces dedicated to the task. The Emperor was reluctant to send his finest troops to fight in the mountains and jungles of India, and so he ordered a massive recruitment of Chinese peasants into the Russian army.


    Close to a million Chinese were forcefully enrolled into the Russian Army to serve as cannon fodder for British bullets and shells.


    Next to a million Chinese peasants were taken from their lands, shoved into trains and filed off to basic training camps, where they were outfitted with surplus and outdated equipment and given the most basic of basic instructions. Then they were loaded into trains again and shipped off to Turkestan and East Turkestan, to be placed under the authority of General-en-Chef Mikhail Skobelev, General-Governor of both Turkestans and commander of the unified Turkestan Military District.

    Skobelev placed them under his personal command, grouping them with his elite and seasoned 1st Turkestani Corps that was staioned on the British border in the area of Kashgar. In addition, ten fresh divisions with heavy artillery under General Imeretinsky were dispatched from Little Russia to be placed under the General’s orders. And, finally, the 2nd Turkestani Corps of eight divisions was sitting on the Afghan border under orders from General von Kaulbars. After a short reflection, Skobelev reinforced von Kaulbars with sixteen of his Chinese divisions.

    But Russia would not be alone in fighting the British. Agreements were passed with the United States, recognizing the need of both countries to secure themselves from the British Empire. It was understood between the parties that Russia would not seek to expand her holdings in the Americas, whilst the United States reiterated their recognition of Asia as Russia’s sphere of exclusive interests. In short: in case of war, the US got Canada and the Russians got India. Along with all the other bits and pieces.

    On June 21st of the year 1890 the die was cast and what would be called the First Indian War in Russia and the First Northern War in the United States began.

    Initial advances were good. Skobelev annihilated the one hundred thousand men the government of India positioned on the border with East Turkestan. The massive Russian artillery barrage mutilated British defensive positions and the decisive charge of hundreds of thousands of Chinese conscripts left no survivors behind. Von Kaulbars crushed all opposition in Afghanistan and occupied the mountainous Kingdom. In Canada, the initial advaces were also successful, with the United States occupying bordering provinces and Russian soldiers moving into British Columbia.


    Initial advances were good, despite some minor setbacks when the minimal Kashgar garrison was beaten back by a British counter-offensive


    Russian and US forces seized large parts of British North America in the first weeks and months of the war[/img]


    Enthusiased by the success, Skobelev led an offensive south-east to capture Calcutta, whilst Imeretinsky went south-west towards Baluchistan. Von Kaulbars in the meantime captured the North-Western Provice and the north of the Baluchi Agency. It seemed that the war would be over by Christmas (the Orthodox one, of course, according to the Julianic calendar). Little did Skobelev and all of the Empire know that the war would drag on for four years and turn into a huge meat grinder that would chop up tens of thousands of Chinese and Indian soldiers in the name of their Russian and British overlords.


    Skobelev’s push towards Calcutta enabled him to occupy the United Provinces and other lands…


    … until finally he and a horde of his good friends entered the seat of the government of the Indian Empire.


    Skobelev sent a short telegram to Petersburg, with the following content: “Calcutta is ours. General-en-Chef Skobelev” The Emperor sent the following reply: “Congratulations, General-Fieldmarshal. Alexander

    All seemed to be going for the best for Skobelev personally and for the Empire in general. However, this was the moment when things went from bad to worse. First of all, the Russian fleets in the Baltic and the Adriatic Seas were sunk by the British. However, this did not allow the British to profit from the Russian weakness on the sea, as Russia had an estimated fifty divisions defending her coastlines from the White Sea in the north to the Black Sea in the south. What Russia lacked in terms of naval power she over compensated with land power.


    For three years the Russians would seek and fail to impose full control over British India


    In India, the war entered a phase of hide and seek. For some reason, Indian peasants rallied British officers, who then led their newly formed regiments from the jungles to attack Russian positions. Russian soldiers would occupy a territory only to see the local population rise up in arms and fight for the Union Jack. This would go on for three whole years.


    North America entered a period of trench warfare


    In North America, things weren’t going great, either. The Americans made some minor advances, but came to be stalled as the British considerably reinforced their Canadian forces. And the nine divisions of the Alaskan corps were not sufficient to tip the balance. The US Congress and the American public began to grow impatient to end a war that was giving little to no profit, but generating great costs. President McKinley approached Alexander with an offer to initiate peace talks with London to find a solution amenable to all parties. Exasperated by the lack of progress on the ground, Alexander acceded.

    The peace talks would be held in Washington D.C.

    More like a pitiful failure. I keep getting pro-British rebels popping up all over the place and I cannot invade the AI minors because of event-scripted peace.

    Also, the lion and its indian cub were willing to give lots, just in the wrong places. Too bad I didn't think of screenshotting some of the peace offers... they were quite original

    FIRST Indian/Northern War

    That means theres gonna be more!

    I had a Vicky game (documented in my Nika! AAR) in which the Russian AI invaded India. The war ended up being over 10 years, very bloody, and a stalemate.

    Lets hope that happens to you, except you decisively win...

    But you DID win the war.

    Those newly acquired lands in Afghanistan and Pakistan will provide you more meatgrinder... uh, I mean, manpower!

    Perhaps new allies beside the U.S. would be possible for the next war?

    asd21593: I do win. Not decisively, for now... However, I do plan on more wars, as my appetite was not satiated.

    Raden Shaka: The screenshots show occupation during war. The exact expansion shall be far more modest once the Treaty of Washington is signed

    Isn't that Britain's worst nightmare you've got going there?

    Russians -- and Chinese -- in India. I tell you, it's like having a global tea shortage.

    But yes, partisans in colonies rising up in great numbers to support their oppressors is just ridiculous. Blame the Vicky engine for that.

    P.S. I think it's fair if you edit out the Indian minors peace events temporarily. It was there I think to represent the fact that the "alliance" is just a really firm British guarantee (India is ours, stay out or face war type of thing) and not a two-way we-fight-for-each-other thing like, say, the Commonwealth Nations. ANZAC divisions might legitimately land in Hanover to support the motherland in her great wars, but Hyderabad doing the same is ridiculous.

    But since this *is* a war over India, it's reasonable to assume that the British puppets of India will fight.

    If I recall it's probably in the British India event text file for VIP.
