    Welcome to the land of spamville Oct! :yeah:

    Anyway, CG - I analyzed what cities can build cavalry within 5 turns or less. These are GA totals, but I tried to take into account the totals after our GA.

    Cavalry Buildup:

    City Turns By Turn 20
    Bavaria 3 7 Cavalry (includes switching from the rifle)
    Kyoto 2 6 Cavalry (after Hoover - give a few turns after our GA)
    Eklektochtitlan 5 4 Cavalry
    Cavalry 5? 4 Cavalry (maybe 5-6 after the factory)
    Valhalla 4 5 Cavalry
    Tokyo 3 6 Cavalry
    Octavinium 5 2 Cavalry (after factory - could be 3)
    Plexenburg 2 10 Cavalry
    Morgana 6? 3 Cavalry (after factory - could be 4)
    Tlaxcala 2 10 Cavalry
    Kagoshima 3 6 Cavalry
    Nara 5? 3 Cavalry (after factory - could be 4)
    Kuhkaff 2 10 Cavalry (This is our Army city, though)
    Serenity 3 2 Cavalry (after IA)
    Bremershaven 2 10 Cavalry
    New Falcon's Nest 5 4 Cavalry
    Strider's Haven 3 6 Cavalry
    Kells 3 5 Cavalry (after Cathedral)
    Hakodate 5 4 Cavalry
    The Burrow 3 6 Cavalry
    Naerva 4 5 Cavalry
    Cuernavaca 4? 3 Cavalry (after factory - could be 4)
    Gunningheim 5 4 Cavalry
    Bizen 5 4 Cavalry (build a barracks first!)
    Pensacola 3 6 Cavalry
    Androbius 5 4 Cavalry
    Civantoria 5 4 Cavalry

    27 Cities
    152-158 Cavalry

    Note: These are our Golden Age figures. I don't know the exact number, but I'll cut the total down by 30% (not 33%, since we still have a few turns left).

    Estimated total is: 106 - 110

    Once the war's over, we can use our cav to rush buildings while panzers are being built. Or, we can use them against America if we want (if they're still behind in tech), or our decoy/"special ops").

    I would like to apply for the position of military chat rep as I have this sudden knack for military planning. :) I will be able to attend most weekend chats and some weekday chats. Also, I have some ideas for our homeland defense project, and also about an invasion of Persia.

    One last thing, I suggest the title for Deputy be full Colonel and the title for Chat Rep be Major. ;)

    I would suggest an alternative.

    The Deputy MA and Military Chat Reps are not the MA's personal aides, but high-ranking officers, fully in the chain of command, with the power to command the entire Fanatikan military. A pair of senior general ranks would be more appropriate. I suggest Colonel General and Lieutenant General for their ranks, or something similar.

    Please participate in this poll on the renaming of the cities of Quellewasser province. Approval was overwhelming in the first poll last week, but we missed quorum by a vote.

    The offensive in Persia is going well, but our Line of Communications is seriously underdeveloped. I would advocate the immediate transport of a dozen workers to Nagasaki and points southwest to upgrade the road and rail network. This will allow our cavalry to recycle back to the barracks at Nagasaki in the minimum amount of time and also allow our upgraded artillery and infantry to move into the combat zone quickly.

    As always. the citizens and officials of Quellewasser are prepared to make every effort to support the army in the field.

    Yrs.

    @Feodor - I agree with this plan, but there is a problem. The Govenor or the President (Dont know which has the upper hand so dont quote me on that :s ), gives the workers there orders, If I find out what provance it is in. I shall notify the Govenor :).

    Aye, Sir!

    With a little luck, we'll have them PIing all over each other and make off with the work crews in the confusion!

    As an asthetic issue, could be upgrade the remaining Musket and disband the Pikemen, swordsmen, and spearmen?

    We should also try to upgrade those remaining knights. I feel since we are already filthy rich, we should just upgrade the spearmen and pikemen, but still disband the swordsman.

    If there is a realistic need for a disband then we can considerate it. Because they look out of place is not a realistic need. An ancient warrior does the same job as a rifleman for MP duty in a Monarchy. With a decent rail network, every one of these "throw away" units is worth a rifle because they can free up one from interior defense that can go to the front lines.
