NAPOLEON SDS MODULE
The Napoleon SDS (self-defense system) Module is a comprehensive military strategy and tactical information protocol. Utilizing the 1 petaflop computing capacity of the supercomputer, the Napoleon SDS module simulates and calculates all possible wartime outcomes and scenarios, and provides split-second recommendations to all levels of the command chain from command & control staff to division commanders. If your military units are GPS enabled, the Napoleon SDS Module can relay recommendations and tactics directly to the units involved in the conflict.
In addition to providing split-second information and recommendations, the Napoleon SDS module also includes an auto-retaliation feature to ensure Mutual Assured Destruction (MAD) even if your leaders are incapacitated (i.e. your RL schedule keeps you too busy to actively RP).
WHAT IT DOES FOR YOU:
In practical NS terms, use of the Napoleon SDS Module during military conflict gives your nation a strategic advantage by allowing you to predict and respond to your enemy’s movements and strategy. Additionally, if your nation is nuke capable, the Napoleon SDS module can be configured to automatically launch your ICBMs to ensure Mutual Assured Destruction (MAD).
For example, if your enemy announces he is launching a cruise missile attack on your nation, the Napoleon SDS module will have allowed you to preposition your anti-cruise missile systems (assuming you have them) for maximum effectiveness.
If your enemy announces he is sending in bombers (regardless of stealth technology) to bomb your nation, the Napoleon SDS module will have allowed you to preposition your anti-aircraft assets (assuming you have them) and launch interceptors (assuming you have them) to give you the best air defense capabilities.
WHAT IT DOES NOT DO FOR YOU
In practical NS terms, use of the Napoleon SDS Module during military conflict does not create an impenetrable shield around your nation or military units and does not ensure victory. If you chose to provoke a nation with a military 10x larger than yours, you’re going to die regardless if you have the Napoleon SDS module. What the module allows you to realistically RP is a higher kill ratio and fewer losses, not invincibility.
TRAFALGAR NAS MODULE
The Trafalgar NAS (naval automation system) Module is a highly advanced naval warfare application. Utilizing the ship-based version of the supercomputer, the Trafalgar NAS Module incorporates the strategic logic and algorithms of the Napoleon SDS Module into the command and control functions of the ship. Essentially, the module can control all aspects of the ship, including maneuvering/evading, targeting/weapons control, countermeasures, damage control, and communications.
WHAT IT DOES FOR YOU:
In practical NS terms, use of the Trafalgar NAS Module during military conflict gives you unparalleled mobility and weapon systems / countermeasure capability. The module not only simulates and calculates all possible naval wartime outcomes and scenarios but it also can control and coordinate the ship’s propulsion, communications, and weapons systems. What this means for your ship is better response time; superior countermeasure effectiveness against attacking aircraft, anti-ship missiles/bombs, torpedoes, and sea mines; and better targeting and kill percentages.
For example, if your enemy’s sub launches torpedoes toward your ship equipped with the Trafalgar NAS Module, the application will automatically begin evasive maneuvers and deliver the most effective countermeasures available. If it were set to defensive mode, the module would have automatically targeted and engaged the attacking sub a split-second after the sub released its torpedoes. If it were set to offensive mode, the module would have targeted and engaged the enemy sub as soon as it was within the range of the ship’s sonar/radar and weapons systems regardless if the sub launched an attack.
WHAT IT DOES NOT DO FOR YOU
In practical NS terms, use of the Trafalgar NAS Module during military conflict neither cloaks your ship nor does it allow you to turn your personal yacht into a battleship. In other words, the ship limits the module’s effectiveness. If your ship does not have countermeasures, the module doesn’t magically make them appear. Therefore, if your ship doesn’t have the capabilities to defend against anti-ship missiles, you’re going to get sunk! Offensively, the module won’t target and engage enemies outside of the capabilities of your ship’s weapons system and radar/sonar. What the module allows you to realistically RP is higher countermeasure effectiveness, faster targeting and response, and greater weapons system accuracy, not invisibility or invincibility
HANNIBAL SASA MODULE
The Hannibal SASA (Supply and Support Automation) Module is the most efficient military logistics system available. Utilizing sophisticated JIT (Just in Time) algorithms and simulations, the Hannibal SASA Module allows nations to automate and control the deployment of material military assets including food, supplies, weaponry, vehicles, and ammunition. When used in tandem with the Napoleon SDS Module, the Hannibal SASA Module allows nations to instantly coordinate their supply chain management with ever-changing combat situations and operations.
WHAT IT DOES FOR YOU
In practical NS terms, use of the Hannibal SASA Module during military conflict gives your nation logistical superiority on the battlefield. Your troops and military assets will be able to be positioned and repositioned at a moment’s notice (assuming you have the resources to move them – i.e. Tank transports, troop transports, cargo planes, etc.) without breaks in the supply lines. Even when faced with a naval or air blockade, the Hannibal SASA Module will allow you to best utilize your available military resources and supplies to give you added mobility.
For example, if your enemy suddenly announces his intentions to attack your nation, the Hannibal SASA Module would allow your nation to completely activate, mobilize, and position your forces by the time your enemy arrived (assuming he wasn’t already waiting on your borders or water skiing in your coastal waters).
Also, if you are currently engaging an enemy on one front and another conflict erupts with another enemy force, the Hannibal SASA Module allows your military to redirect military assets to where they are most needed in literally days and weeks, not months.
WHAT IT DOES NOT DO FOR YOU
In practical NS terms, use of the Hannibal SASA Module during military conflict does not allow your naval armadas to arrive in the conflict sea zone 15 seconds after the conflict was announced. Nor does the module enable either your air force to fly a 14-hour mission in less than 5 minutes or your army to transport 1.5 million troops to the other side of the world in 1 day. Also, if your nation currently doesn’t own tank, troop, or naval transports, the Hannibal SASA Module does not build them for you. In other words, the Hannibal SASA Module is limited in its usefulness by your nation’s lack of logistics support vehicles / infrastructure (i.e. railroads, ports, airports, etc.). What the module allows you to realistically RP is the ability to activate, deploy, and mobilize your military in less than half the time it would normally take – it does not teleport your troops to the battlefield or give your air force and navy light speed capability.
