Due to a huge deviation from the previous version of the AU I have started a new thread. Please mods feel free to delete the old one :)

My aim to to create a total AU world incorporating some existing AU's by other users (these will be credited, don't worry about that :)

[ img ]

The Commonwealth of Malpusian States was formed in 1921 when 10 British and 4 French states declared independence and formed a Commonwealth. This is run much like Australia or the US where each state has reasonable governmental powers but the Federal Government has a large influence as well.

In 1926, after a long period of transition the Malpusian Defence Force was formed. It operated 2 Seaplane Carriers, 3 Battleships, 3 Battlecrusiers, 8 Crusiers and 23 smaller combat vessels. Alongside this it had an Army of 190,000 and an Airforce of 200 Aircraft.

The nation began WW2 as a neutral power with a signed alliance with the USA. When the Japanese attacked the Americans at Pearl Harbor, Malpus had to go to war. By 1945 it was the 4th largest contributor to the Allies.

In 1990 the Soviet Union collaped at Malpus jumped on this by declaring a new alliance with Russia. This caused some anxiety from the US but nothing bad has yet happened due to it.

1990 saw Saddam invaded Kuwait and this caused prompt action by Malpus as they were ready to fight within 18 days. 29 days later the UN signed off the use of Military action and within 120 hours Kuwait and most of Southern Iraq were secure. Basra was the most northerly point of a new demilitarised zone.

After minor conflicts in the 1990s which Malpus had little or no involvement in the 2001 invasion of Afganistan commenced and Malpus deployed forces to the Gulf encase of an escalation. In 2003 these forces took part of the invasion of Iraq by providing vessels for the naval blockade.

In 2010 Malpus decided to send forces to Afganistan and deployed forces to Helmend Province. Its most recent conflict was with Libya in 2011 when Warplanes and Naval forces were deployed.

I'm pretty sure it's in a different plane of existence than your AU. I'd hope he'd be friendly with Atlantia considering the interest he shows in it ;D

Out of interest, what made you go with 777s rather than say any of the military Airbus' or lower number Boeing models?

Firstly I would love to include Atlantia in this AU if you were to allow me :)

Secondly I choose the 777 for 3 reasons
1. Its a bit different :)
2. Its larger and carriers more passangers/cargo
3. I LOVE IT

I've got no qualms with anyone including my nation in their AU. It's always interesting to be have people to interact with. (I can't really go and speak to David Cameron or Nicolas Sarkozy).

Fair enough I guess. I just think for a lot of the roles they may be perhaps a bit too big. We get 777-300s flying low over the house taking off from B'ham International and they are really big birds.

Very good point but as a troop carrier it is the right size to deploy rapid reaction forces to theater and as a tanker still maintains this role (apart from the 2 freighters ;) )

Below is a WIP of the Malpus Class Carrier.
SHOULD I GO NUCLEAR???
I need to add the following weapons:
Goalkeeper 2
2 x 16 Slyver VLS
Hitroles

It will operate the following air wing:
24 F/A-18C/D Hornet
36 F/A-26 Sea Fury
4 SH-71 Kestrel
4 ES-3M Eyeking
1 C-2 Greyhound
4 S-3M Viking

One of the 4 can be tasked with being used for a large marine deployment. This would mean the following air wing:
30 F/A-18
3 C-2
30 MH-60M
10 CH-47
2 ES-3M
