Its our last day of screenshot week! Thanks for all the comments and be sure to check our website and forums for futher updates!
By now you have no doubt been briefed by STAVKA and are aware of the greater offensive plans regarding our operations within the Vega Subsector. I regret not informing you earlier but the fluid nature of the front prevented us from informing Red Army commanders until the operation had been locked down.
Military Sector Space Command has confirmed that 2 battlegroups of the 3rd Feet numbering at roughly 700 combat vessels have just arrived within the Vega Subsector. Included in this group are 50 squadrons of both atmospheric and orbital strikecraft which will be assigned to the Red Air Force to act in conjunction with your ground forces on Vega. You will receive further notifications from STAVKA regarding the exact nature of these forces over the coming days.
Now, if I may speak to you as a friend rather than fellow officer, I trust you will know to keep the following information to yourself. Premier Sokolovsky is committed to breaking the back of the German Armed Forces and using a victory at Vega to “shine as a beacon to the Orion Arm”. He intends to concentrate such an overwhelming force at Vega that the Germans will be left with only 2 options.
The first possibility is that the Reich will launch a decisive counter attack on Orson or Galleria against our own strained forces there, so as to score a propaganda and military victory with their citizens, and then agree to some sort of a ceasefire under various terms to make it seem that this war has left the Greater German Reich in a much better strategic position.
The second possibility, and one that I and the Premier consider much more likely, is that the Greater German Reich will expand this conflict to one of total war. Until now both sides have been content to confine this struggle to the border worlds and Vega, should the Germans choose this second option we could see fighting expand to include Juno, Outreach, and even Soviet and German systems.
There is no doubt in my mind that the Soviet Armed Forces will win this conflict, and it is only a matter of time before the Germans are forced to the bargaining table. However I also have no illusions as to the losses we will take before we get there. If the Germans act as the Premier and I expect they will, things will get much worse for you on Vega before they get better.
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Dawn of Victory. We love games like Sins of a Solar Empire that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
