I got to wonder though about this new idea of -A- and UK for Providence.
Im sure on short term it may give -A- the peace they need to go on warfare outside the south.
But long term, i think it has weaken them.
Simply because they now have opened up Providence for NC to get a foothold in to launch a campain against -A-.
As history shows NC has been interested in Providence as a staging point before.
Before you had Proviblock who were a stable force in Providence. If any system were to be taken in Providence under CVA government, it would be noticed right away.
Now, with -A-'s idea about Providence, a system with station can be captured pretty fast without -A- hardly now about it.
Im pretty sure NC did not take Providence or systems in Providence simply because the Providence force combined with -A- so close would be very hard.
So in long term im sure -A- loose on this in many ways they dont really see nor understand yet.
