Oslic's Helm Nexrecad, New Sussex
The Nexrecads is the common name used for the strings of Coastal Batteries that line parts of the Nova English Coast. The name coming from the East Moorland Phrase ‘Gunhouse’ which was first used to classify the first main line of Nexrecads on the East Moorland Coast Line in 1823. After which the government then under King Berac II invested heavily in a Nexrecad programme to which spanned from New Sussex right down to parts of Southern Burwood. In response to large raids by pirating Kampongese as well as groups of Stormark ships that were constantly raiding coast line towns and villages. The Nexrecad Programme of 1823 was successful and around 160 Nexrecads were constructed by the year 1840 and raids by foreigners were quickly halted after a policy that allowed operators to open fire on armed ships that were either attacking coastal settlements or simply armed and carrying the flags of Kampong.
However by early 1902 demand for the use of the Nexrecads fell dramatically leading to the closure of 125 of the 180 total Nexrecads. The remaining 55 Nexrecads were all located in vital areas and were hence saved from closure. During 1968 many of the remaining Nexrecads were quickly reffited with the older artillery pieces being replaced by modern set pieces as well as an armoured train network that was able to connect all the Nexrecads in Fatherland together in order to maintain a protect route of supply. Then in 2004 further renovations of the Nexrecads occurred and several Nexrecads were updated with N.E.W Missile systems as well as much more improved targeting and communications equiptment.
