Article I: Sovereignty.Edit
I.1 In the signing of this pact, it must be clear that both signatories will remain sovereign, as will the members in each alliance.
Article II: Mutual Defence Pact (MDP).Edit
II.1 In the signing of this pact, both sides agree to defend and aid one another in times of war when requested by the other signatory alliance. Should either of the signatory alliances be attacked by another power, the other is required to come to its assistance with its full strength and resources.
II.2 Both parties recognize that Planet Bob is an ever-changing and chaotic place. Therefore, in addition to the provisions of Article II, the following conditions will require reciprocal defense when one signatory has been the victim of:
1. Espionage 2. Significant and credible threats to alliance security 3. Separatist movements
II.3 To request assistance in a time of war, the alliance which is in need must first send a request to the other signatory alliance. That alliance then has 48 hours, or two days, to fully prepare for the shift from peace to war for maximum war efficiency. The options of termination outlined in Article VII are still available even after assistance is requested and granted. Defense obligations shall not be triggered if one of the signatories spied on another alliance alliance or clearly severely provoked another alliance; Article II of this treaty will be considered inapplicable in those situations.
II.4 If either signatory initiates hostilities with another alliance or become defensively engaged as a result of other offensive military action, the other signatory has the option, but not the obligation, to come to the former's aid by any means the latter deems fit.
