Modernization of the Military
The current situation seems good as the new tech teams are setup for the empire, I'm attempting a balanced approach on both navy and air force. The current goal for the game is to first unite the empire and defend against any foreign invaders, as the game progress the goals will change.

EZD8IOi.jpg

Country overview.

The current military situation, I've divided the military into two fronts, one being the eastern and western front. Oberkommando East has 11 divisions while the western front has 8 divisions
xC46zeC.jpg

The divisional count of the empire.

The governments of our fellow players, the most concerning nation at this point is Italy, who poses a military threat to the empire. In Russia Kerensky was assassinated, and the Mensheviks seized power of the government. Black Monday also plagued both Austria and Russian empires.

Governments at the start of the game.

The first line of business will be the modernization of the military, to do this two new medium tank attachments were ordered to be produced. This is an attempt to keep up with our powerful neighbors.

Africa Burning
The tensions between Mittleafrika and Portugal reached a boiling point as the two governments recognized a state of war exists. It is obvious that Mittleafrika's power will overwhelm the Portuguese.

fVxu1ke.jpg

Declaration of war.

Mean while in Russia Pavel the liberal became prime minister of the new government, on top of the that they also recognized the village communes and socialists in response to Black Monday. Black Monday brought near economic collapse of the world powers in Europe.This is interesting news as it is very clear that Russia has now become more stable and a civil war seem like a distant thought.

At the home front Serbian nationalists in Bosnia look to Serbia for economic help as Black Monday is still being felt through out Europe. Such activity must not be permitted to help ensure the structural integrity of the empire remains strong.

dRiIXzm.jpg

The Serbs ask for help.

The following day our governments response was given to the Serbian embassy in Vienna, everybody in the cabinet had weary faces as war looked ever close. Nobody wants war...yet, but we must keep our grasp firm on Serbia and don't make them feel too comfortable.

Kiza5MI.jpg

Serbia Ignores our demands.

To our amazement the Serbs ignore out demands and war seems just around the corner. Our response is simple, cease all contact with Serbia and essentially isolate them from any foreign help. A week passes without a response and the mood in the empire is bleak as the general people are not yet ready for all out war.

Tune in next time to see if war with Serbia becomes a reality, or if they bow to our might.

Asian Summer
The summer of 1936 was an interesting one for everybody, after a week of turmoil and stress the Serbians finally succumbed to our demands. In Asia Japan released Korea and Formosa as their puppet.

SskOzEW.jpg

Serbia bowing down to the empire.

The Japanese government took an unrepresented turn by using democracy to solve its internal problems. Both Korea and Formosa were released as Japanese puppets, everybody in the cabinet were very excited to this news to see the Japanese weakened. But it seems that this new democratic reform was too much too quick. Because within three weeks a military coup was held in Japan due to admirals and generals were upset over the pull back of Japanese industry and military.

z1IMyo6.jpg
D8MtLZQ.jpg
6jbo3Jq.jpg

The new governments.

Since the recent diplomatic victory's against Serbia, a wave of new good news came to the empire. One of the most well known dissenters of the duel empires died in Vienna, and a grand military parade is held in the capital to show the triumph of Austrian military pride.

GxpjBmR.jpg
DzRBVkF.jpg

The news of the day.

A few weeks after the good news, most concerning news hit the world as a third party candidate won the US election. The political party is the most concerning as it is Jack Reeds syndicalist henchmen take power. The question remains, what is lordchance's aim? It's confusing to attempt to figure out what he's attempting to gain by electing the syndicalist party. If anything the US is even more de-centralized and weak than ever, in the meanwhile in the south Huey Longs minute men are now patrolling the streets of the major southern cities.

_42222146_avo416x300.jpg
BnfZgxq.jpg

The minute men caring out orders of oppression of the local liberal population.


Out of token of gratitude the US sent a fleet to the Austrians as a symbol of good faith and to further any future relations.

8IOHgKZ.jpg



The final piece of sad news of 1936 came closer to home, Archduke Friedrich died, the supreme commander of the glorious Austro-Hungarian army.

KaQg1YY.jpg

The Archduke's death splattered over the front page of the news papers.

Will we unite into Austria-Hungary in honor of the Archduke, or will it be a long drawn out war?

The New World Order
The new year is upon the empire, what will 1937 hold for us? I can only hope that the ever changing world that is ever closing towards a world war will not engulf us. The US has recently drastically changed their government to Totalistism, this shows Jack Reed's intent is to stay in power by force, but many people in the country are not pleased with the new dictatorship.

zbVPDnj.jpg
bi5EJ4z.jpg

The new American government, and their inherited dissent.

On a higher note it took almost a year but the horrors of Black Monday seem like a distant thought now with our economy going back on track.

2h5F3qN.jpg

There's still hope.

But just because the empire is beginning to prosper, that doesn't mean the rest of the world is following our example. The recent news from the far east is that the A.O.G. has decided to fight the Legation Cities, their reasoning behind this act of regression is to clamp down in the gangs that roam free in the Legation Cities. Even though the A.O.G. is a German puppet, the outcome of the war is still uncertain.

tDKoJiK.jpg
NSscgKr.jpg

The DOW.

Following the turmoil in Asia South American politics seem to be taking a left turn as more countries fall under syndicalism. Even more concerning is the new alliance between Brazil, Venezuela, and Bolivia; in response the La Platan's formed an alliance with Peru in order to defend them selves.

KEfTSP0.jpg

The New Political Block.

With the ever growing threat of new foreign enemies the cabinet decided now was the best time to centralize the empire and inherent Hungary, the big question is weather or not Hungary will accept annexation. The cabinet is still startled after the Serbian incident, but they will stay by their decision, Serbia accepted our demands in the end so shouldn't Hungary follow suit?

Yv5gOUL.jpg

The proposed plan.

Our Worst Nightmare
To our shock the Hungarians have rejected our proposal and wish to stay independent, many of the cabinet members are beginning to realize their mistake for underestimating Hungary.

7AqfwHB.jpg

The shocking news.

War seems ounce again just around the corner, the reservists are now being called up as a precautionary measure. Vienna is in the process of making preparations for enemy bombing runs on the capital.

Air_raid_queue_1463976c.jpg
bZuKHbu.jpg

Local Austrians making preparations for air raids.

The Chief of Army is addressing the cabinet on its offensive plan for Hungary, Operation Altmark is expected to capture Budapest by early March, that is if other powers do not intervene. The operation seems to be a good plan, and spirits are high in the room, until the foreign minister rushes in with an urgent message from Berlin. The Germans are openly supporting the Hungarians and may declare war upon us if we follow through with Operation Altmark.

CxIlpbb.jpg

Montenegro demanding independence.

jTcrVqb.jpg

A new enemy.

A sigh of relive can now be heard as the Germans do not intervene in our current war, but the news is cut short as recent reports show the the navy in Pola in committing mutiny and has there for made the fleet indisposed until further notice.

8NGO3tG.jpg

The traitors.

Operation Altmark is met with good success but is slowing down around the major rivers. meanwhile the Hungarians are also doing their own offensive in the South.
jBFiRRt.jpg
ibMkcsF.jpg

The current battle.

The pressure in seen on Hungary as the Romanians decided now was their time to attack, this will greatly improve our current situation and hopefully alleviate troops. On top of that the well trusted Heimwehr have offered their local militia to help maintain the empire.

hJeCoTe.jpg

Reinforcements.

Upon this our faithful allies in Glacia have also followed suit in joining the winning side. The Chief of the Air Force has made a new plan to attempt to make the Hungarians surrender come more quickly, a new bombing campaign on Budapest has begun in order to shorten the war.

The Disillusion of A Dream
With Spring upon us our enemies are many, but so are our allies. With Operation Altmark in full force we can only hope for a quick end to the war, but what seems to be a concerning international factor is the Italians, Julius has made it clear that he wishes to unite all Italian territories.

uT3Z2Mu.jpg
ODz1hVU.jpg

The diplomatic situation and opening battles.

But our civil war is not the only one, in the US multiple faction have risen up over control over the battle riddled nation. With Lordchane's CSA troop already occupying D.C. the outcome is very uncertain.

dZP5Ewr.jpg
asgOKMm.jpg

S4N3LRj.jpg

The new governments.

At the same time Hungary's enemies grow, with our eternal enemy Serbia delcaring a state of war exists between their two nations.

QVYcmUi.jpg

The shocking news.

The cabinet members are beginning to worry, Operation Altmark is succeeding but the loses are growing. As new operations were being made, ounce again the foreign minister comes in out a breath with urgent news, this time from Rome.

HZ15h2i.jpg
FvNdMOv.jpg

The news darken.

The generals rush to make a quick and possible flawed plan to invade Italy, but some generals have advocated for a defensive stance instead of attacking.

zvyAwF9.jpg

Operation Knightwatch.

The Italian gamble seems to be not working, the military staff is in panic with the news from the Italian front. Half of the Western routed and Venice lost, many begin to blame that the operation was not thought through the Alps make a quick war impossible.

wEC0Jy8.jpg


Strategic Warfare Command issued a new order, "The total destruction of Rome by air." The terror campaign turns from Budapest to Rome, now with a two front war what will the Spring hold for the empire?

I recently played a game like this where I barely built any new units before the Ausgleich and still managed to turn back both Hungarians and Italians. It played out almost exactly the same way, with neutral Croatia and Bohemia, friendly Galicia (that then got jumped by Poland in my game), opportunistic Romanians and Italians. I thought I'd lose at least Venice and Trento, and they did get to the point where they could demand it by event... but in the end I won because the dumb Hungarians let like five of their divisions be encircled (thanks to my cavalry), after which I could bring reinforcements to Italy while finishing up Hungary.
