[[[[OOC: Please read up on our econ and war systems.
Until otherwise compliant with our system, this war list is not valid nor canon. For questions feel free to hit me up on forum dm or discord!!
Also please not biological and chemical weapons are banned through European Council acts and can not be obtained on a first time war list. They acquisition must be RPed.
Nuclear Weapons are in a similar boat and must be approved ICly, by the European Nuclear Weapons Authority.]]]
Project Ulir [IC Secret]
Vardic Defense Research Agency (Vardvarnarannsóknarstofnun / VVOT)
Olleris Proving Grounds, Randrokk Mountains, Vayinaod
March 28th, 2020
Dr. Steinar Jakobsson stared at the packet laid before him, bright red letters signaling its confidentiality, he stared in both curiosity and reluctance. The engineer felt brittle in his legs, even though he was seated he felt like the world would collapse on him. Ulir was an ancient Vardic spirit for archery and the Hunt, eventually evolving into Saint Ullr in modern Vardic Orthodoxy.
"Do you understand the agreement doctor?" asked the non-descript air force officer.
Steinar broke out of his trance just enough to reply yes, just enough to sign the line on the typical non-discourse agreement. The officer nodded in excitement and looked to the obvious one-way glass to signal to whomever was back there it was time to come in. Moments later a less non-descript Vardic Army general entered the room, followed then by an Air Corps General was well. The man and woman respectively seemingly looked like their owned the entire room, which they likely did to Steinar's point of view.
'Dr. Steinar it is a pleasure to finally meet you, I am Lieutenant General Viktor Jansen. I along with Major General Rebekka Svendsen here command the Olleris Proving Grounds, and a vast majority of the projects under it," the army General started with as he shook Steinar's hand, "I think we met once at the end of your initial mass driver experiments for the VRA about ten years ago."
"Yes.....you mean the only experiments," Steinar bluntly replied.
"At your level of clearance yes the only experiments. The Air Corps continued with them for a few more years citing your work, national security reasons at the time precluded your involvement." General Svendsen replied. The mild disgust evident not only in her grey eyes, but her pale skin as well.
"So did the Fremetian National Labratory finally loan me out to outside military projects apart from its own?" replied Steinar who attempted to ignore Svendsen's evident superiority complex evident of most Vards, especially over half-breeds like Steinar. Even a Vardic-Fremetian couple while accepted still shouldered the cultural pressure that came with having an 'impure' Vard.
"Actually yes they did. Please you can open the packet now without me having to arrest you for foreign espionage," answered General Jansen.
Steinar cautiously opened the packet, which was curiously split into two 'chapters' if one could call them that. Projects Artemis and Apollo, weird for the Vards to reference Greek mythology instead of their own or stock standard Norse alternatively. His aged eyes poured over the documents. He knew the Generals saw his overzealousness, Steinar himself would probably admit it was borderline psychopathic in his excitement.
While continuing to read the documents, he just had to start asking question after question.
"Will I get the funding I need?"
"Yes, both the Army and Air Corps have siphoned off funds from other projects into the investment. If even just the Apollo Batteries end up successful, the First Konsulate feels its worth the investment," replied Jansen.
"Do I get to choose my team, even if they are Fremetian?"
"The FNL is involved with Project Apollo, and depending on their likely ENAA application in a few months may join Artemis, but the agreement was for the Fremetians to be involved across the board from a development stand-point. So yes, you may choose your time provided they meet our security requirements."
"You realize you're trying to weaponize a concept entirely meant for peaceful applications right, if I get who I want-" Steinar was cut off before he could finish.
"Your team is going to be compartmentalized, and few if any will know the entire scope of the projects until it reaches their end. The cover story will be for those that you and we believe to be more...pacifist in nature....that we are developing a potential anti-asteroid fragment protection system if the need arose," General Svensen stated without even a care for the horror that Steinar had on his face.
"You want me to lie to people, that I've worked with my entire career?"
"Yes, and I know you will because I know for a fact Project Artemis would be the culmination of all your life's work," retorted Svensen
Steinar was silent for a few moments, not because he could not find a valid argument to fight back with, but because the blasted Vardic woman was right. Steinar was more so a man of science than a man of total morality.
"Okay, lets get started, lets make General Reid of the DU squirm in fear when he tries to sleep," Steinar finally blurted out.
"Excellent. The FNL has already granted you permission to start, we expect plans for a concept device as soon as possible. I wish you luck Dr. Steinar. I will leave you with General Svensen to work out remaining details and questions you may have over the packet. Welcome to Project Ulir," replied General Jansen with both amusement, and a clear grin on his face.
One could say that Ulir nocked their arrow that day.
RE: Spanish Application to the ENAA
In a 3-0 vote, with two abstentions, the ENAA has decided to grant the Kingdom of Spain a limited nuclear weapons license. The Kingdom of Spain shall be limited to 75 nuclear warheads at this time, and may apply in one year, or 365 days from this notification for a request to increase its warhead amount.
Spain followed the advice of the ENAA during its initial decision, and the ENAA believes that the Kingdom of Spain has become a nation that can be conferred with the responsibility of nuclear weapons.

RE: [Discussion] The Situation in the People's Confederation of Eastern Haane
Firstly, I take offense and demand an apology from Councilor Firoux for the insinuation that Vayinaod's announcement over its departure was "sudden". The press conference between the Four Assembled Powers was only over the No-Fly Zone specifically, of which there was no demand to continue any longer. In fact the No-Fly Zone is still there as clearly stated it is a phased withdrawal. The Four Powers take the responsibility they took upon themselves seriously and the conclusion of the NFZ will only occur after various conditions are met.
The reality is no new nations have announced unilateral raids into the area, and the rest are taking part in publicly declare humanitarian missions that have thus far produced no inspection violations. The Commission as a whole is required to report on the situation, but there is a level of command that rests with Harriet Copala. Which begs the question as to why so many Inquistans hold dual hats if you ask me but regardless.
Vayinaod as stated in the press briefings and in the article you cited Cllr. shall remain part of the coalition until the completion of its phased exit from EH. There was no request, no demand in the council, NOR an outright expectation any nation who joins remains till the end. Vayinaod has communicated clearly and effectively when required, but when the situation as a whole stayed fairly 'boring' to a certain degree. Not even for even news headlines across Europe's multiple outlets.
So if we are to berate Commissioner Juncker or his job, then Harriet Copala as the leading officer of the 'coalition' should appear as well.

Archkonsul Nylund Announces Withdrawl from Eastern Haane
November 11th 2020, 1431 GMT +2:15
After nearly a month and a half operation, the No-Fly Zone imposed over Eastern Haane will soon come to an end. In a joint statement earlier today, the Four Assembled Powers of Vayinaod, Fremet, Spain and Inimicus announced the end to their administration of a No Fly Zone. In a proceeding speech to the nation, Archkonsul Nylund confirmed that the Vardic mission to Eastern Haane had met its end and that all deployed assets to the area will return to their home stations or back to regular deployed status.
The Four Assembled Powers had stated that the beginning phases of operational scale-back would begin November 27th and should end sometime around December 11th if all conditions were favorable met. While no indications have been made by the Inimician, Spainish or Fremetian governments of their future involvement in Eastern Haane, rumor is abound that Fremet is likely to pull back from the region to reinforce its security against the UNSR.
The No-Fly Zone came about after the Kingdom of Reitzmag executed a unilateral 'intervention' into the nation-state of Eastern Haane that worsened the already volatile situation which came to a head after mullite coups, constitutional reforms, and levels of civil strife that will leave sociologists studying the phenomenon for decades. While most sources indicate that Nylund Administration was interested in an EU-lead or at least sanctioned No-Fly Zone first; the Reitzmic intervention forced their hand especially after reports of fighting between Reitzmic forces and that of the Haaneans.
The rushed intervention by Reitzmic had resulted in the deaths of hundreds of Reitzmic troops, in what most political and military analysts would call a disaster for the nation. Both within public standing at home and abroad, and among most foreign governments.
The No-Fly Zone established by the Four Assembled Powers meanwhile representing a multilateral, calculated, and organized response with a clear goal; stop letting more variables into the unbalanced equation. Safe to say that had been met as the day before the No Fly Zone was to be erected, the Reitzmic government backed down and announced a withdrawal over what was to be a stalemate on the ground after they lost their supply line. With tails tucked between their legs, Reitzmic troops and aircraft were escorted from the area and subjected to various inspections in Vayinaod.
In the following weeks the No Fly Zone met a more calm environment as most of its missions were simple escort duties for various humanitarian bound cargo aircraft, a few local daredevil pilots who were escorted back to an airstrip etc. In-fact the EU-lead intervention as legally sanctioned by the EU Council was not even necessarily an intervention, while the Four Assembled Powers joined the coalition in order to continue the NFZ, the day-to-day operations remained the same.
Now as Vardic forces return home or to Fremet to stand against the UNSR, the proven deployment process of the Vardic forces will be good research material to ensure more rapid responses.
"I definitely think that given this experience that the First Konsulate could organize a similar response in about four days compared to the seven it took this time. The foundation is there now, and this administration intends to build upon it," First Konsul Lorens Henningson was quoted today following Archkonsul Nylund's press conference.
Time will tell if the Vardic Forces will be called upon again for a 'similar response."
