It'd be at best a 1.5 factory country, and we'd have to talk such a move over before agreeing to it - even presuming that Kirk's willing to do that.

Ok, I'm perfectly fine with that.

Yeman+Saudi Arabia, 2 factories total. May be more depending on investment.

No. Saudi Arabia only has a half-factory. Hedjaz got the other half factory, and that's now part of the Indian empire. Good luck re-uniting the country, India never gives up what it gets its fingers on. ;)

As for the general concept of uniting or playing those powers, I'd wait to hear from Kirk (or even Rocky, if he's afoot somewhere), as they were the main architects of what's there now.

Rocky is on N-verse, fetching him.

Fetched. Hey y'all.

I can't be sure what exactly has transpired here since I was a player, but rump Saudi Arabia was still under Ibn Saud's grip, and Yemen was, I think, still under the control of a hardliner imam or his son. Adventuring by one against the other might be possible if the two regimes were "religiously compatible". I would not think a peaceful merger to be likely.

I was talking to Admiral K, and he said that he would not have any objestions if I took over Latvia. Now I submit it to the mods and the general board. Do you approve?

I have no objections; but if you take command of Latvia, I have one requirement...

Name the ships!!! :P :D

Well I as a mod and an ally of Russia don't have any objection to you taking on Latvia Texan.

Update on Yemen/Saud :
Rocky's storyline hasn't been drastically altered, the two nations are on different courses and have little to bind them except fear of the big neighbors. I think I dropped the Imman and I've been using the Yemeni Sultan as politically dominant in that state since the 2nd Asir war, but Ibn Saud is still firmly in control of Saud.

The Dutch have been active in both, offering civil and military aid in an effort to prop them up some. Yemen because it offers a nice location at the gates of the Red Sea, and Saud so that it wouldn't be overrun. Now that oil is confirmed in Saud, they may be more interested.

A Dutch engineer battalion has been working on a road from Yemen, skirting Hedjaz-Asir and to Saud is..by 2/38 pioneered and being surfaced, which will provide a trade and commerce link, as well as a means of shipping material to Saud if Hormuz is closed.

Nudged by the Dutch, the two nations have agreed to drop their counter-claims and formalize a border in a treaty with the Brits.
With WASP, they found a good solid foundation to look forward to continuing as independent states. Yemen looking to Red Sea commerce for prosperity, but needing help against Asir-Hedjaz/Bahrat, and Saud looking at Azerbaijan, Armenia and the Turco-Bulgar bits as a hedge against Persia. MERIF will also improve all these states.

One the one hand it would be easier to deal with them if they were merged as they are poor, have awful infrastructure, and maritime assets with different missions...but there is little reason to merge. I suppose a Islamic Coup, or a dynastic marriage, a revolt or whatnot could be fashioned, but they really would make a poor player nation subject to being stomped on..oh wait India already did that...stomped on again. :)

Latvia is just fine with me :)
