Live in 3.2.1
Good evening, I'm Ballan Lugar, coming live from the FCT Trade Council HQ at Hertford Major for News Without Borders Network (NWBN) with some controversial breaking news.
Tonight it has been confirmed by a source, whose identity is being protected, close to the council that the FCT have secured a deal with MidGuard for MidGuard to supply the small FCT Defence Force with a number of military vehicles, arms and ammunition. This comes as hostilities between the Free Coalition Townships and the New Fenland Republic escalate, ever edging closer, day by day, to war.
The FCT sent delegates to MidGuard as well as two other states whose task it was to secure military aid in the form of hardware such as APC's, as well as arms and ammunition to equip the FCT Defence Force adequately enough so that in case of all out war with the New Fenland Republic, they are able to properly defend themselves.
The deal comes in exchange for favourable quantities and prices on FCT supervised exports from the free towns and villages that border the New Fenland Republic. Apparently the deal primarily concentrates on exports of food stuffs to MidGuard, whom as a result of environmental waste and toxins and decades of war and anarchy can not produce safe food stuffs for their population in sufficient quantities but have a revitalised manufacturing hub including the manufacturing of military hardware, arms and munitions. Seemingly this deal couldnt come at a better time for both sides.
It is further reported that the FCT are to receive 8 wheeler APC's which were being stored at a secondary military depot and would only be issued to second or even third line units as a result of them being rather obsolete by the modern standard but still potent enough to cope on the modern battlefield with a more modern enemy. Also, at least two heavy, tracked APC's are also being sent to the FCT's Defence Force from and by MidGuard. We are told that the hardware, arms and munitions will be despatched to the FCT imminently as war preparations continue in the FCT at an accelerated rate.
I'm Ballan Lugar, goodnight.

Welcome, visitor, to the world of the Dis-United Kingdom. A dark world set two hundred years in the future.
After the bloody and chaotic breakup of the Dis-United Kingdom anarchy reigned supreme and daily survival for each individual was never a guarentee but, rather, was hard fought and easily lost.
Then slowly small, fledgling states began to form in the ashes of the breakup of the United Kingdom and like tiny Phoenix's they each grew and became stronger and stability in each region grew.
But alas, the stability was never going to be long lived and tensions between neighbouring states grew as each vied for larger territories and greater control over the Dis-United Kingdom as it became known. Each state formed its own basic military forces mostly of militias and home defence units with whatever weaponry and hardware was still available at minimal cost.
Soon these forces became more and more professional as neighbour fought neighbour and the weaker states were rendered extinct their brief history wiped by their more powerful, successful neighbour and this continued and escalated up and down the lands. Eventually nine super states emerged, each with their own distinct military and an un-easy peace descended as each remaining state sized up its neighbour and took stock of all that had happened.
Now, 200 years on although an un-easy peace sits upon the land like a late snowfall in early spring, it is obvious that it is slowly melting and war will soon erupt to decide who will ultimately re-unite the Dis-United Kingdom.
