EAST MORELAND MILITARY FACTBOOK
« on: August 28, 2017, 09:36:52 AM »


ARMED FORCES OF EAST MORELAND

The Armed Forces of East Moreland can trace its history back to the Battle of Greenflowers when after the battle King Robert The Unifier formed his bodyguard calling them Red Legion. The name came from the fact that many of the civilians who had come to defend him had been wearing white farmers shirts which due to the bloodshed turned Red by the end. Today Red Legion is the name given to the nations elite special forces unit, one of the most respected in Mundus.

The East Moreland military is formed of three branches.

NATIONAL SERVICE

Every Morelander has to complete two years of national service, regardless of physical ability. This is undertaken at the age of 18 or following completion of an Undergraduate Degree, men and women complete the same length of service. Uniquely however not all complete military national service for the duration of their national service, for example a Morelander who is blind is still expected to do national service but will skip the military phase. Anyone deemed unfit for all national service branches is given an exemption certificate but this is generally rare.

StageDurationWhat it involves
1. Initial Military Training15 weeks
  • Skill at Arms
  • Fieldcraft
  • First Aid
  • CBRN (chemical, biological, radioactive and nuclear defence training)
  • Physical training
  • Adventure training
  • Military Education
  • Sport and Fitness[c]2. Test Week[c]1 week[c]Recruits undergo a range of mental and physical tests. At the end of this week people are streamed into one of five areas of service.

 
1. Military (Branch determined)
2. Cultural (protecting national heritage)
3. Religious (caring for religious sites)
4. Health (Helping in hospitals)
5. Environomental (Woodland management)
3. Trade Training15 weeksPreparing the individual for their future in the service. For military this involves a 15 week course specific to their branch, for the Army this involves specific training for their unit.

For those entering other types of service they receive specific training much of which involves work shadowing.
4. Probation3 weeksIndividuals work within their assigned position under a mentor in a full time capacity. Should they be deemed in need of further training they return to Trade Training. This generally only happens in the military branch of service.
5. Independent Service60 weeks[The indiviudal serves full time in their allocated role. This can see people sent into combat, however generally individuals doing military service are more often than not put into non-front line units with infantry being mainly volunteers.
6. Preparation Training5 weeksIndividuals, wherever possible, work part time while accessing training designed to help find a job when they leave the National Service. This can include vocational training, further study or work experience.
7. Debriefing5 weeksIndividuals return to their home towns where they take on a leadership or mentoring role in their field. Also during this stage a person may be released from service if they have a full time job to go to.

The final week sees the individuals presented with a formal written report of their service which is often used by employers. The final week also sees a parade held where they formally end service. [/list]

    ACTIVE NAVAL SHIPS

    Regulars:- Approx 42,000
    Reservists:- Approx 21,000

    The Royal East Moreland Naval Service was founded in 1507 after Queen Rhiannon the Fierce brought the various nobles private fleets under a central command. At the time this was known as the Naval Army however in 1670 this was renamed The Royal Naval Service. Following the reformation of parts of the military in 1907 the Army lost its own boats and the Royal East Moreland Naval Service was given its royal standard.

    The Navy is considered the "Poor relation" in East Moreland military circles and has for around 30 years complained of being denied funding for large scale projects that it much needs. This has been changing in recent years however the Navy is still, according to its commanders, "Punching Above its Weight" and in need of increasing in size as East Moreland begins to have a more global outlook.

    ROYAL EAST MORELAND AIR FORCE

    The REMAF was founded in 1914 and was originally the Royal East Moreland Aviation Regiment and part of the Army. In 1937 the Navy began operating their own aviation forces as part of the Naval Aviation Force, however this was short lived and in 1942 it was determined that a specialist command would be needed and the Air Force was formed. The Air Force's origins in the Army is still easy to spot as officers carry cavalry sabres as standard issue dress uniform.

    Today the Air Force is seen as the most technologically advanced of the three services, thanks mainly to being in partnership with EMAC.

    The Air Force is arranged into squadrons of 24 aircraft in most cases.

    THE EAST MORELAND ARMY

    The East Moreland Army can trace its roots back to the 9th Century when a permanent force was established to fight the Borlanders and paid for by levying a special tax on the population. The first recorded Regiment in the East Moreland military was the 1st King's Foot, which was founded in 1008 and today the name is carried by an Infantry unit in Royal Legion.

    The East Moreland Army is based around the concept of Legions the Army has 200,000 full time servicemen and woman. In addition to this they usually have around 30,000 on national service in various stages of training and readiness. The nation also has around 35,000 reservists meaning at any time it could if needed field 270,000 troops, however this is not a situation that has ever happened.

    The Army contains five legions built around infantry and armour units. Each Legion can operate as an almost self contained unit but is trained to be able to slot into any other Legion should it be required. The five Legions are;

    1. Royal Legion
    2. Dukes Legion
    3. People's Legion
    4. Hunter's Region
    5. Pegasus Legion

    RED LEGION
    OFFICAL REGIMENTAL LOGO

    UNOFFICAL REGIMENTAL LOGO

    Commanded by Brigadier Kelly

    This is the East Moreland military elite. This is made up of around 800 Legionnaires. To become a Red Legionnaire you must first serve at least 5 years in the military and then pass an intensive 31 week training and selection period. After that any member of the Legion can veto your entry by placing your name on the base doors. Once enlisted in the Legion you are on probation for 12 months.

    RED LEGION SELECTION PROCESS

    Stage 1 - Application

    A potential Red Legionnaire must have served a minimum of five years in any branch of the military. To apply they must receive a nomination from two officers and then pass an interview with a Red Legion NCO. After the initial NCO interview the canidadate undergoes various aptitude tests and psychological profiling.

    Stage 2 - Red Legion Orientation (1week)

    Candidates are required to make their way to Red Legion HQ where the course takes place. Candidates undertake a map and compass test, a swimming test, a first aid test and a combat fitness test. Each day features a "Sergeants Adventure" which is some form of adapted run, such as combat run from an unknown location back to HQ. Each day sees distances, weights carried and difficulty of terrain increase.

    Stage 3 - Fitness and Navigation (4 weeks)

    This section starts with basic fitness tests, a 2.4km run to be completed in under 9mins30 seconds, followed immediatly by 45 press ups and 55 sit ups to be completed in two minutes each.

    Each week follows a "Trial" at the end. These are tests designed to see a candidates progress and time limits vary dependent on local conditions.

    Week 1 - 15km run complete with kit
    Week 2 - The Figure of 8. A 24km march to be completed while reading a map and carrying 18kg rucksack, 5kg rifle and each Legionnaire must be in possession of a litre of water when they finish.

    Week 3 -Endurance - Using a hand sketched map the Legionnaire must cover 35km carrying 18kg of kit, 5kg rifle and radio. They must navigate from RV to RV meeting an instructor at each stage.

    Week 4 - The Long Drag - A 65km navigated route march to be completed in around 20 hours. Candidates must use map and compass to navigate between memorised Grid References where a NCO is waiting. The Legionnaires rucksack must weigh 25kg upon completion and a standard issue rifle must be carried.

    Stage 4 - Initial Continuation Training (14 weeks)

    This consists of detailed and realistic training in weapon handling, vehicle handling, demolitions and small unit patrol tactics. The candidates are assessed each day and any failing to make progress return to their unit immediately.

    Stage 5 - Alpine Training (6 weeks)

    Alpine training is usually carried out in the icey Northern Alps with candidates allocated to a four man patrol, each patrol supervised by a serving Red Legion NCO. Cold and rain are persistent, potentially demoralising the candidate, and skin contusions, frost bit, hyperthermia and blisters must be cared for due to the risk of infection. Training includes winter survival, patrol techniques, navigation, ski handling, camp and observation post techniques, contact drills and medicine.
    The final test encompasses these skills, where all things that have been learned must be applied correctly in a tactical environment. Any candidate thought not to be making progress is returned to their unit.

    Stage 6 - S.E.R.E Skills(survive, escape, resist, exfil) (5 weeks)


    Using skills learned so far the potential Legionnaire receives detailed training in Survival skills, Escape and evasion, resistance to capture and exfiltration. Any candidate thought not to be making progress is returned to their unit.

    Week four see's Legionnaires given ill fitting 1960's equipment and a hand drawn map. They are to evade capture while travelling between checkpoints with a Hunter force chasing them. Once caught or upon reaching the final checkpoint they are "captured", often realistically, and taken to the Army's interegation centre. There they undertake a week of interegation where giving anything other than "Name, Rank, Number, Date of Birth and "Sorry I can't answer that question" " results in a fail. Candidates are exposed to sleep deprivation, extreme heat and cold, starvation, dehydration and other forms of mental torture.

    Stage 7 - War Games (1week)

    Potential Legionnaires are attached to a patrol preparing for deployment to a live theatre. Here the recruit experiences day to day life as a Red Legionnaire and is expected to be able to integrate within a patrol. The exact nature of this stage depends very much on the operational deployment of the patrol. The NCO of the patrol may return the candidate to their unit at any time.

    Final Parade

    During the final parade candidates who have passed so far are placed on parade with the whole of the Legion that is not deployed. During the parade they are presented with their Red and Black Beret unless a serving member of the Legion veto's their entrance to the Legion.

    Probation (12months)

    During this time the Legionnaire serves as a member of Red Legion, upon completion of the Probation period the patrol they have served on vote as to whether to give them their full red beret. A majority decision is taken, if they vote to not present the full red beret the Legionnaire is returned to their original unit.

    LAND PORTABLE VERTICAL LAUNCH SYSTEM (LPVLS)

    The LPVLS is a stand alone system of a 9 cell missile launch system that can be transported on the back of many military transport vehicles. It was developed jointly by nations with the CNN.

    It can be operated remotely from pre-positioned locations. It fires specially made missiles that can be guided be either GPS or Inertial guidance system and has a range of around 60km. If equipped with a ground operator it can also utilise laser guidance. Each missile is 1800 mm long, has a 150 mm diameter and a weight of 63 kg. The missile system can receive the location of enemy positions from unmanned air systems in the battlespace; and according to the received data, the LPVLS would launch a number of missiles. It can also be programmed by ground teams and used as a means of close air support.

    HENLEY BISON MOBILITY VEHICLE


    Key features

    The 44 is based on a chassis known as Rolling Chassis Bison. It uses multi-layer components, which increase the protection of the occupants and the vehicle. The overpressure armoured capsule is directly mounted on the chassis, while the gantry frame arrangement can resist high dynamic effects.

    The ATV measures 5.65m-long, 2.5m-wide and 2.5m-high

    The engine is mounted at the front, crew cab in the centre and a cargo section at the rear. The forward crew cab receives protection from a two-piece windshield. Two doors are fitted on either side of the hull for occupant entry and exit.

    Its cabin offers a maximum internal space of 7.7m, which can accommodate up to six personnel including crew and troops.

    Noise suppression and anti-vibration materials make up the interior.

    The vehicle also has a large cargo space, which can accommodate combat gear, armaments or equipment weighing up to 1.5t.

    The Zetor Gerlach is fitted with an air conditioning system and a chemical, biological and nuclear (CBN) protection system. The vehicle also integrates data and voice communication systems.

    The Bison is armed with a remote-controlled weapon system (RCWS) mounting a machine gun. The roof can also be installed with different types of manned or remote-controlled machine gun turrets, anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) launchers, mortars or grenade launchers.

    The double bottom hull with anti-mine V shield ensures superior protection against mines and improvised explosive devices (IEDs).

    The ATV can survive an anti-tank explosion of up to 8kg of TNT under the axle and the cabin.

    It can attain a maximum road speed of 110km / h and a maximum cruising range of 800km.

    It can cross a maximum vertical step of 0.5m and trenches with a maximum width of 1m. It can negotiate terrain grades of up to 70% and side slopes up to 40% when carrying the full load. It can wade a maximum depth of 1.2m without preparation.

    The ATV is also fitted with a central tire inflation system (CTIS) to offer high mobility on different terrains.

    EAST MORELAND ALERT STATUS
    (THE BIKINI STATE)

    The BIKINI State is a nationally used alert status used to convey the level of threat to East Moreland and its military personnel. The levels were initially kept secret when introduced as a concept in the 1950's however with so many Morelanders having completed military training as part of the nation's programme of compulsory national service it was determined that they would be made public in the 1970's. The word BIKINI is not an acronym and was infact randomly chosen as part of a security code for radio communication. Today most government instillations display the level prominently as it often influences the manner in which security services deal with the public and thus by making it publically known it is considered more likely the general public will act to support and comply with the military forces that often patrol urban areas.

    There are a number of different levels and it is not always the case that the levels will be utilised in order.

    CodeWhat it means?
    RedEast Moreland is at war. Forces are engaged in combat and it is likely that attacks on East Moreland will take place.HIGHEST LEVEL OF THREAT
    Black AlphaA known specified threat against East Moreland targets either at home or abroad is expected to be acted upon in the near future.
    BlackThere is a threat in place to East Moreland targets either at home or abroad.
    OrangeThere is an increased level of security as it is believed to be a potential threat to the nation or nationals.
    GreenNo suspected threats or dangers.LOWEST LEVEL OF THREAT


    For much of the last two decades the Bikini State has fluctuated between Black Alpha and Black. Despite East Moreland's combat troops seeing action in Marseille, Safraen and Academica these actions did not see Red deployed as they were classed as "Peacekeeping" rather than direct combat operations.
