    RP Idea - Ace Combat: Tale of Two Bases

    Post by Guest on Wed Jul 08, 2015 12:37 am

    So...here's an RP campaign I've been bouncing about as of late, and I'm not sure where to post it so feedback would be nice. All sections are WIP pending feedback.

    Premise

    T2B takes place sometime in the mid-to-late-2000s. Erusea and ISAF have made their peace against each other and have begun the healing process. The world finally seems to have settled down from major conflicts. However, smaller conflicts continue to rage elsewhere in the world almost unnoticed amidst a backdrop of disarmament from the other major superpowers. With fewer troops on hand for the AN to provide support with, they have decided to turn to other sources.

    In 2005 the AN adopted an amendment to the Treaty of Lumen to allow a limited rearmament of the Belkan Air Service (formerly yet still popularly referred to as the Belkan Air Force), and new recruits have already shown up to try to earn their wings alongside the few old knights that remain in its ranks after its dismantlement by the victorious Coalition of a decade ago. Some of the new recruits are idealists, and a few perhaps have fevered dreams of restoring old glory. Their aircraft are mostly hand-me-downs, but Belkan rigors of maintenance have kept them in almost-new flying shape. Yet even the new BAS faces an uphill battle within their own soil.

    The need for armed conflict resolution in an age of disarmament has led to the explosive growth of private military companies and security contractors, many of which are based on both sides of the redrawn Belkan borders. With new and familiar equipment and the promise of a lucrative and especially legitimate career, the "Contractors" are attracting new and old talent from all around the world. Some of these contractors live to continuously hone the only skills they know. Others see themselves as heroes without a flag, or are simply in it for the cash or thrills.

    Deep in the heart of North Belka, two airbases stand at the heart of this competition. The BAS' Drachenau Air Base has definitely seen better days, but for many of its residents, it's as much a home as its hangars. On the other side of the nearby city, the former Wallendorf Airfield has been repurposed into a training facility for an up-and-coming contractor firm with a mission to assist PKOs and train international pilots.

    Scenarios

    Early Scenario: 2005.
    New staff arrive in both Drachenau and Wallendorf. The new personnel seem to quickly make themselves at home, but have their own little conflicts with the local populace. The nearby city was one of the few Northern cities that did not vote in the BVAP by majority, and bristle at the thought of rearmament. On the other hand, some of Wallendorf's contractors are already kicking their feet up at the local drinking holes - and acting better than the natives.

    Middle Scenario: 2007-2008. Estovakia has slowly been crumbling into chaos since the Ulysses incident. However the newfound sense of cooperation and collaboration between the superpowers has resulted in an influx of aid and support to the Estovakian government and their increasingly tenuous hold on the populace. The AN has established ANESTOM (Assembly of Nations Estovakia Mission) and both the Belkan and Contractor pilots have been requested to help provide security for AN missions and potentially handle armed unrest.

    Late Scenario: 2010. Business for the contractors in Wallendorf has never been better - especially with the sudden rise in tensions between the two superpowers giving them first priority in handling supplies and logistics for the Osean government's war effort. As for Drachenau, the Belkans have at least managed to get their base in order, with at least one fully functional and highly-trained squadron. However, some of the military's higher ups have seen fit to rotate certain personnel into the base's roster whose ideologies clash with some of the veteran staff. Wallendorf doesn't seem to be safe either, as they have been asked to take certain shipments to the enemy as well.

    Equipment
    Belkan Air Service / Luftstreitkräfte
    MiG-29BT - ex-Yuktobanian surplus upgraded in collaboration with Grunder for the new air service.
    Panavia Tornado
    EastFighter Typhoon 2000
    Transall C-100

    Contractors
    F-23 Gray Ghost - Former Advanced Tactical Fighter candidate retooled for export by an aircraft company struggling to stay afloat in the "peace dividend" era.
    Su-47 Firkin - Yuktobanian concept fighter. Some were formerly BAF fighters, but Yuktobania is "outsourcing" their development to the contractors to help gather data.

    The point of the RP is to explore more of the divergence point between standing professional armies of the latter parts of the 20th century and the rise of private military ventures in the 21st. It could also shed more light into the overarching conspiracy of the Gray Men and how they were able to pull that many strings at once.
