OOC:Hmm you made our project sound like we are creating AIDS...Oh well looks exciting! Can't wait.
Looks good. However there was no mention of Iraq or Afghanistan but knowing sheep I guess there is a reason behind that. Ya thats right United Kingdom is going green!!
Yes there was. Look closer.
I dont say anything about what happens in some war zones, this is because I simply havent rolled the dice yet to work that out. Iraq is actually going to be the spotlight.
Yes, this will be an excellent update
Hahaha, please tell me that Iran tested a nuclear bomb.
And PLEASE tell me that it funded terrorist attacks against France.
*prepares Nuclear arsenal*
*Is really eager for update, despite being officially uninvolved*
*waits to see if Luxembourg made amazing scientific breakthrough*
OOC: Only if they bought the Soyuz vehicle along with it. Building a space-vehicle capable of sustaining life support to modern standards (including radiation shielding along with the avionics and so on) is neither cheap nor quick, and doing it in 2 years when it took the American program 3.5 years to go from nothing to a manned flight--with vastly more budget and less stringent requirements, is fairly ridiculous. Europe has Ariana boosters, admittedly, but those are payload boosters.
The idea of a European--or any--aerospace consortium fabricating a functioning space vehicle in 2 years, when production of say, the Eurofighter, took 8 years (1986 through 1994) is just absurd.
ooc well when you got money nothing is absurd. Just remember we can build a rocket, we can build a space vehicle and we can even make the space shuttle go up, but will it stay up is the question.
200 posts yay (smart ass comment not needed)
@Symphony D; thats what I meant, and there are negociations going on right now in the real world.
Sometimes money isn't enough - you need skill, materials and time. I'm suprised you've even got the money , unless you have massively boosted the tax rate...
silver... if you invaded me....
he would get really angry, and send you a letter, telling you how angry he was
Ah, violence and war, is there anything better in this modern world?
Just try not to destroy everyone in the process...
peace and love? uhh cookies?
OOC: Wrong. The question is whether it's cost-effective and survivable. And unless vehicles were bought from elsewhere, I certainly doubt either.
Let them dream, Symph. The Europeans have come up with worse wastes of money anyway...
OOC: Oh you'll see... You'll All see *Cackles madly*
I very much like both mentions of my Nation's name in the update preview. Very much looking forward to it. (Being the good type that will be worth waiting for)
Again, my allies are being amazingly unrealistic.
Separate names with a comma.
