Overview

The Thedosian military is the armed force tasked with defending not only the Republic’s territory and its citizenry, but also its interests abroad and any client states of the Republic. The commander in chief of the Thedosian military is the Esselda, who chooses the Secretary of Defense, who—in turn—chooses the members of the Chiefs of Staff Directive.

The Thedosian military, as a part of government, is organized and directed by the Department of Defense. This includes the Army, Marine Corps, Air Force, and Navy. The Department of Defense is also in charge of the National Guard, despite this forming a part of the National Security Service. During peacetime, the National Security Service operates under the Department for Strategic Homeland Defense; during wartime, however, the Department of Defense assumes control of the NSS.

The Thedosian military operates in four different branches. The first is the Army, tasked with the defense of terrestrial interests of the Republic, be that the Homeland and overseas territories or its allies. The second is the Marine Corps, tasked with undertaking a variety of amphibious operations as well as being the initial and predominant force in aid operations. The third is the Navy, responsible for the maritime defense of the Republic, its territories, and its interests, in addition to undertaking various strike operations to support ground troops. The last is the Air Force, tasked with securing aerial superiority in the Republic and where its interests may lie as well as undertaking a variety of strike operations to assist ground forces. The headquarters of the Department of Defense is housed in the Lucrecia Defense Center in the capital city of Wyzim.

History

The origins of the Thedosian military can be traced as far back as the Elder Crusades in the mid-8th Century. The neighbors to the north of Thedosia undertook during that time a crusade against what they refer to as the Elder Continent, in an attempt to extinguish the land of the thedos, who they considered to be malicious in nature. The various kingdoms inhabiting the continent eventually united military forces in a successful attempt to repel the invaders.

The military as it is today, however, has its origins as early as 1681, when then Empress (later Esselda) Duvaineth reorganized the structure of both the government and the military, introducing the citizenship tiers that existed in all but name as well as introducing a mandatory military training program.

In 1937, with the invasion of Springacre by Kamitsure, the Republic military was again pitted against another force of great strength. The Grand Depression that had ravaged Thedosia for the previous decade had greatly impacted the defense budget; still, when news of the invasion spread to Thedosia, volunteers enlisted in the tens of thousands. Reinforcements were quickly landed on Springacre, and by 1940, Kamitsure had accepted defeat and began to retreat into a defensive posture. Between 1940 and 1943, the Thedosian Navy and its marines launched an ‘island-hopping campaign,’ in which they invaded various islands under the control of Kamitsure, and used them to stage attacks against their mainland. In late 1943, the Thedosian Military invaded the mainland, advancing forth; however, the determination of the Kamitsurese to defend their homeland was, though honorable, a rising problem for the Republic military. As such – with nuclear weapons at their disposal since 1943 – the Military deployed a weapon they named ‘Usurper,’ over the city of Nagashi, ending the war and occupying the country.

In the 21st Century, Thedosia has carried and finished its engagements in Azadistan and fought a ten-year conflict with the terrorist group Olmica, stationed deep within the various terrains of the country of Olmatur. The Republic military also had influence in many different conflicts, often deploying forces for the mere purpose of maintaining a presence in an area.

Budget & Personnel

The Ministry of Defense is considered one of the most important ministries in Thedosia, and as such, receives much attention from the Thedosian government and its budgetary affairs. In 2036, the Ministry of Defense received 5.04% of the GDP of Thedosia – an estimated 14% of the total budget. This is second only to Social Services, which received 5.15% of the GDP.

In terms of personnel, the Thedosian military operates a mandatory military training program. At the age of thirty, all Thedosian citizens must report to military training camps; the only ones exempt from this are those incapable or unfit for military service, and those attending university or higher education programs, whose training is postponed until their education is complete (at a maximum age of fifty). Though the exact length of combat training depends on the adeptness of the individual in question, the minimum for combat training is forty weeks. After training is complete, the soldiers are assigned to a unit and given instructions as to where they must report for one year of military service. However, these soldiers (referred to as Paladin in the citizenship tiers) cannot be deployed overseas except for in dire circumstances.

Additionally, the Republic maintains a volunteer force. Anyone who willingly joins the military before the age of thirty or remains with the military after mandatory service is completed is referred to as a Centurion in the citizenship tiers, and are the only forces capable of being shipped overseas regularly.

In January of 2037, the Thedosian Ministry of Defense released that it currently maintained 5,482,193 active military personnel, with an additional 112 million reserve personnel. The Republic Guard, the equivalent of the national guard in the Elder Republic, numbers 1,426,596.

Imperial Elder Command

The Republic military’s chain of command has its headquarters at the Imperial Elder Command in the Lucrecia Defense Center. It is also the headquarters of the Department of Defense. This building is where major military decisions are taken and where the National Security Council and the Chiefs of Staff Directive convene for their regular meetings. The current head of the Thedosian military is Imperatress Týril Sanustar, the chief of the CSD.

Though the Chiefs of Staff Directive does have overall control of the branches, it does not intervene in the actual movements of troops in a battlespace – each branch has its own administrative facilities, and as such, it is their duty to operate on their own battlefields. However, it has been known for each individual Chief to make recommendations to the respective high-ranking official of their branch, as the Chiefs of Staff are often the most experienced – and highest ranking – military officers in the Republic.

The CARS - or the Coalition Assault Rifle System - is a weapon produced by Royal Defense Systems after a request from the Thedosian government established grounds for the conception of a weapon that could be cheaply distributed and produced in all Coalition of Steel observer, member and Council states. The idea behind the weapon system was an equalized equipment pallet for Coalition forces, allowing for greater military union. Though not all nations would be forced to accept the new weapon, it would be strongly encouraged.

The CARS is the result of a long and expensive project by RDS to produce a weapon that the Ministry of Defense deemed to be excellently marked in the categories in which Coalition states may find themselves. Several other weapons - the SAR72, SAR81 - built in conjunction with Sovereign Defense Industries - and SAR5 were denied due to flaws in its systems that the MoD argued would become invalid in most Coalition states.

The design - which does not carry a shorter carbine version - was produced with the intention of developing a weapon that, though would face more trouble than carbine counterparts in urbanized locations of warfare, such as Saint Antoine, would face targets with ease in expansive locations, like Mojave Desert.

The MagLevel PMAG 30-round magazine was implemented for this weapon because it was determined that the weapon required a normal-sized clip for her functionality and that the appearance of any smaller magazine would pose a great danger for soldiers. However, the PMAG ensured that soldiers were able to take full advantage of the weapon's characteristics and features.

Following the evaluations of the CARS, it was proposed to the Ministry of Defense, who has since approved it for distribution across CoS member states.

M3 ACOG Sight

The ACOG Scope is an optical attachment that provides a 2.4x zoom, making it a useful attachment for enhancing the long range capabilities of a weapon. It is considered a long-range alternative to the RDS, the Holographic Sight, and the Reflex Sight. This allows them to utilize their scopes to eliminate far-away targets with ease.


HB1 Heartbeat Sensor

The heartbeat sensor was designed with the purpose of allowing soldiers to, even in areas where visibility is low, or through walls and other debris, locate enemy soldiers and eliminate them with ease. The heartbeat sensor is among the most useful attachments to weapon systems, and allows soldiers to effectively eliminate soldiers without being exposed for prolonged periods of time.


M38 Reflex

A reflex sight is a generally non-magnifying optical device that allows the user to look through a partially reflecting glass element and see an illuminated projection of an aiming point or some other image superimposed on the field of view. These sights work on the simple optical principle that anything at the focus of a lens or curved mirror (such as an illuminated reticle) will look like it is sitting in front of the viewer at infinity. Reflector sights employ some sort of "reflector" to allow the viewer to see the infinity image and the field of view at the same time, either by bouncing the image created by lens off a slanted glass plate, or by using a mostly clear curved glass reflector that images the reticle while the viewer looks through the reflector. Since the reticle is at infinity it stays in alignment with the device the sight is attached to regardless of the viewers eye position, removing most of the parallax and other sighting errors found in simple sighting devices.


M61 Holographic Sight

The holographic sight was designed with the purpose of allowing her wielders to utilize a sight capable of displaying bogeys at medium to long distances and still allow the wielder to view the bogey clearly enough to eliminate them. This ability allows soldiers to quickly eliminate targets without issues, meaning they can quickly advance into enemy lines and fortifications.


M51 Shotgun

For the purposes of allowing soldiers utilizing assault rifles the ability to combat enemy soldiers at closer ranges, a shotgun attachment was added to weapon designs. This allows soldiers armed with the Crown to combat bogeys in incredibly close quarters. With this ability, soldiers can reorganize themselves to be an effective force at any range.


M56 Hybrid Sight

The concept of the Hybrid sight was to allow wielders to attach two different scopes on their weapons for the wider range of situations. The Hybrid's base sight is the holographic sight, which allows soldiers to fight in closer range with ease, with the secondary scope being similar to the ACOG scope, which allows for longer range combat scenarios. The magnifier can flip from the right side to the top of the weapon on the fly, allowing for versatile aiming that can be adapted to different combat situations.


M81 Thermal Scope

Having a shape similar to that of the ACOG, though larger, the Thermal Scope is designed to assist the wielder in the darker environments or in areas where smoke has been deployed. By utilizing thermal emissions to locate heat signatures, wielders are capable of easily locating targets and eliminating them.


M66 Aimpoint

The M66 is a battery powered non-magnifying red dot type of reflex sight designed by Royal Defense Systems for use in the Thedosian military. The sight is water-tight down to 25 meters and runs on one 3-volt Lithium battery type 2L76 or DL1/3N. The aiming dot's brightness is adjustable for better visibility and increased battery life. The M66 is parallax-free at around 50 yards, meaning that the red dot will not change position based on eye position at that range. At shorter ranges, the point of aim will change position based on eye position with the maximum error being equal to the diameter of the sight's optical window at short range.


M25 HAMR Scope

HAMR Scope is a toggle-able hybrid of a Red Dot Sight mounted on top of a low-power ACOG-like scope. It has a 1.35x zoom when using the red dot sight mounted on top and a 2.4x zoom when using the scope itself.

However, rather than flipping a magnifier up behind the sight, the wielder simply aims down either one of the sights. When toggling, the wielder turns a knob on the side of the scope; when the RDS is selected, a red glow will appear inside it. The reticule for the scope is unique, and cannot be changed by choosing a custom reticule.

The M09 Duvaineth main battle tank is the primary main battle tank in use with the Imperial Army and Imperial Marines and is currently restricted for sale to other nations. It was a project funded by the Imperial military in the early 12:80s [1980s] in order to continue to compete with the Holy Britannian Empire in the Cold War and seek to maintain a visible superiority over its rival. It effectively entered service in 12:89 [1989] and proceeded to become the most widespread tank in the Imperial military.

History, Phase I

The tank that occupied the position of main battle tank prior to the appearance of the M09 was the M14 Triwethil. However, it had become clear in the Siamro War that its effectiveness was coming to an end, despite its wonderful appearances in the Il Bosco War. In 12:82 [1982], the Thedosian military contracted Royal Defense Systems to design and prepare a tank to replace to old M14.

Following development, the tank designs tests proved to make it a far more valuable asset to the Army than its already obsolete counterpart. However, the M09 was not a perfect design. One of the most frustrating problems in its design was in its hybrid engine, which would constantly malfunction and -- if used in real conflicts -- would suppose an enormous maintenance cost, which was a characteristic the military was looking to avoid. Through tweaks in the design, Ion Optimum found the right model, increasing the reliability of the engine and its duration in combat scenarios.

Entering service in 12:89 [1989] with approximately three thousand tanks, it seemed to come at the most opportune moment: in December of that same year, the government of Azadistan, an old ally of Thedosia's, was exiled to one of its islands, Mahalem. Emperor Lucius ordered that the Thedosian military launch a defensive operation in Mahalem, and with Congress' backing, a significant military presence was established; this military presence was accompanied by the first M09s in service outside of Thedosian soil.

On the 4th of Eluviesta, 12:91 [April 1991], Azadi forces assaulted the beachheads of the exiled government in Mahalem; though they knew of the notable presence of Thedosian forces on Mahalem, they had not believed this would be enough to stop their invasion. Though initially a very successful naval invasion, once they gained a foothold on the island and began to push inland, they faced the Thedosian Army's 3rd Brigade, armed with the new M09 tanks. These tanks were crucial in the push back, and the Azadi forces were pushed onto the beaches once more. With the Azadi navy engaged by the Thedosian Navy's 4th Battle Fleet and Azadi aerial dominance obliterated, it soon became an elaborate military disaster for Azadistan, who not only felt the lost of nearly ten thousand of its soldiers in a single day, but also the loss of its momentum. Now, it was clear that Thedosia had to take the initiative. However, due to red tape within the Mahalem government that sought to avoid an invasion of Azadistan, Thedosia did not begin a counterstrike until the 16th of Molioris [May].

Even then, the attack was impressive. Within two weeks, the capital was in Thedosian hands. The M09 proved incredibly useful for the attacks, and its ability to rapidly carry out Blitzkrieg tactics was one of the reasons the occupation began so quickly. However, to ensure the established government was the previous administration, Thedosia began a ten-year-long occupation of the country, after which it had been totally stabilized.

Armaments, Phase II

The entire concept for the M09 Duvaineth was built around its powerful 135mm smoothbore cannon. Larger than the previous 105mm cannon fitted onto the M14, the 135mm was an enormous improvement that not only allowed the tank to be more capable against larger foes, but also the idea itself of a 135mm cannon increased its fear factor, which is a crucial point in the tank.

However, apart from carrying the 135mm cannon, the M09 was also fitted with a .50 caliber machine gun controlled via remote control by the commander inside the tank. Additionally, it carries two 7,62mm machine guns that must be controlled manually on top, to add to its capability of attacking enemy forces.

In total, the tank carries approximately sixty-four rounds for the 135mm cannon, nine hundred rounds for the .50 caliber machine gun and an additional nine thousand rounds for the 7,62mm machine guns.

Protection, Phase III

As a first line of defense, the M09 is fitted with depleted uranium plates, as well as featuring reactive armor tiles, which incorporate state-of-the-art technology, while using an insensitive, high-energy explosive. These tiles combine an advanced reactive element with a new passive element for armor protection; light-weight as they are, they can defeat shaped- charge threats associated with an urban battlefield. With an incident-free record in operations and combat, the weight savings of reactive armor allows the capability to further increase protection without exceeding current weight constraints. This higher level of protection to the vehicle will allow more advanced operational capacity, and allow the asset to maintain its presence in a potential high-danger zone, assured of its safety.

Additionally, the M09 features several different types of countermeasures, which further expand its defensive capabilities against threats. These include smoke screenings, which permit the M09 to deploy smoke screens to either cover friendly troop advances, obscure its own position, or blind enemy targets to allow for its own or allied advancement. This can be either popped on-target; shot at the ground directly beneath the vehicle, this obscures its own position, and creates a blinding screen for any troops that may be behind it, allowing defensive screening for allied forces. These can also be mounted on mini-launchers, capable of launching the projectile up to one hundred meters away from the vehicle. These can be used to obstruct enemy advances into an area, force troops to maintain their distance from allied forces, or allow said allied forces to move in on the target unexpectedly.

The M09 also features red phosphorous and laser designators. Though this is less of a defensive measure and more of an offensive weapon, the tank would utilize these during combat scenarios. As this can be used to both halt an enemy offensive – its defensive capability – or to eliminate enemy defensive positions to clear the area of operations for an assault – its offensive capability – it is noted as a “countermeasure” primarily because its weapon system is not directly installed into the vehicle; rather, the designator for the weapon is. Thus, it was not considered an offensive weapon.

Additionally, the vehicle also maintains an “anti-rocket elimination system”. This countermeasure is an on-station tactical high-energy laser (THEL) system, attached to the vehicle’s top. This defense system offers constant scanners to detect incoming or nearby rockets, rapidly calculate their flight path, and eliminate them if they pose a threat to friendly targets. Using IFF systems, the Duvaineth can determine – using position of allied forces and calculating a flight path on a global positioning system – if the rocket is to impact friendly targets. If so, it is deemed a threat, followed by the activation of the THEL and the elimination of the rocket. If it detects that it is not going to impact friendly targets, the IFF system assumes the stance that the rocket is friendly and headed towards hostile targets. Such assumptions can be manually overridden by a single click of a button, which designates the rocket hostile, and eliminates it. Though the THEL defense system is high-capacity, its success rate is not 100%, and its success relies on many factors, primarily those of the environment.

Electronics, Phase IV

The M09 features a complex set of electronic systems, designed primarily to offer a wide variety of technological superiority on the battlefield. This warfare suite includes aspects such as thermal imaging on internal computer systems, advanced IFF identification protocols, and enemy detection systems.

On imaging, the internal firing computers of the M09 feature night-vision and thermal-vision forms, which allow the gunners and commander to be capable of viewing outside of the vehicle, even at nighttime or in obscured locations – whether it be fog, smog, or a smoke screen – and determine whether certain targets are enemy or friendly. This is done by the IFF’s advanced identification system; detecting other vehicles or linked soldiers allows the M09 to identify friendlies, as well as use advanced radar and LADAR systems to locate and designate specific vehicles or individuals as “foe”.

The internal-external imaging system gives the commander and gunners three hundred sixty degree visual comfort. This allows the vehicle to maintain its edge on the battlefield, providing support and cover for allied forces, eliminating enemy targets as they appear, and still being able to return its crew home safely.

Imperial Military -- Space Program

Postby Xanixi » Tue Aug 20, 2013 6:48 am

Space-Land-Air Missile Shield

Image
Space-Land-Air Missile Shield
Since 1943, the Elder Republic has been a nuclear power. After Esselda Demelyr ordered the nuclear bombardment of an entire city during the Great War, it became truly clear to the Department of Defense just how crucial it was that the Elder Republic find a way to defeat its most powerful weapon, or at least create a weapon that was powerful enough that any nation that dared attack the Elder Republic with nuclear weapons would fear its wrath. In 1951, the IAF considered it had found a way to do just that: total orbital dominance.

The IAF’s Space Program was designed largely in conjunction with secret organizations within the Republic Space Command, created in January of 1953. By 1956, the IAF notified Esselda Demelyr of a nuclear test at approximately 80,000 meters. This was the beginning of what later transformed into various weapon delivery proposals; eventually, the concept of an intercontinental ballistic missile was made.

However, the true space program – the program still in service today – started only in 2016. Esselda Demelyr authorized the Imperial Air Force to seek the possibility of establishing a defense system in the Elder Republic, particularly designed against ICBMs. The Department of Defense authorized the IAF to pursue a complex network of geosynchronous satellites armed with high-energy laser systems that could penetrate the outer shell of ICBMs and destroy the carrying vessel before they threatened the sanctity of the Elder Republic.

Eventually, the project – named the Space-Land-Air Missile Shield – developed three satellites and launched them into orbit around the planet in 2017. However, the first weapons test of their defenses was in 2019, when Norcrest Air Base launched six mock ICBMs to Lucrecia’s Ocean. All six of these were successfully destroyed by the SLAMS satellites, and the initial project was deemed a success in the report to the Department of Defense.

In 2023, Esselda Demelyr requested additional information on the status of the project. By then, it had been amplified to a project of sixteen satellites, and – though the satellites were programmed with specific positions above the Elder Republic, over which they would roam – an update to the satellites (which required several launches to the old satellites for establishment) which added powerful maneuverability thrusters on them, allowing them to dodge incoming missiles, as well as other, smaller high-energy lasers specifically tasked with eliminating threats to the satellite itself, such as anti-satellite missiles. These were tested in 2025, and their success was praised in Congress.

In 2030, following the detonation of a nuclear device in the colony of Saint Antoine, Esselda Demelyr ordered an immediate amplification of the system. Though the SLAMS program was not designed to combat methods like the nuclear bombing of Saint Antoine, Esselda Demelyr’ new nuclear protection budget invested more funds into various nuclear defense programs, one of which was the SLAMS. From then, the project was augmented to over thirty five satellites.

Though the SLAMS is not the only nuclear defense program in the Elder Republic, it is the most effective program designed to eliminate the perpetual threat of ICBM attack. As such, it the first and last line of defense against such nuclear attacks.

Hunterhorn Bombardment Platform

Image
Hunterhorn Rendering
Named after the Hunterhorn Mountains, where Kal-Sharok, the largest mountain in Thedosia, is, the Hunterhorn Bombardment Platform is an IAF program that began in 2026, with the authorization of the Department of Defense. Though its development stage lasted until 2034, the Hunterhorn became one of the most technically threatening weapons in the Thedosian arsenal. Capable of fast maneuvers and armed with similar laser defense systems as those on the SLAMS project’s satellites, the Hunterhorn’s main objective is to allow the IAF to launch nuclear missiles at various targets around the planet on a moments notice whilst at the same time being more difficult to intercept.

In 2030, only one satellite was in “service,” still being tested by the IAF. By 2037, three were in actual service, fully armed with twelve nuclear missiles and capable of hitting a target within five minutes of receiving a mission. It is estimated that by the end of the century, the program – if still active – would have an estimated twenty four satellites in service.

The first such satellite brought into service was not armed with nuclear weapons; rather, it was armed with regular guided warheads by its designers, who intended to use Olmatur as a “testing ground” for the weapon. After three successful missions, a small shuttle was launched towards the satellite, which then replaced its conventional armaments with several nuclear warheads, updated some of its hardware, and then left the satellite, completely changing how dangerous the Hunterhorn orbital bombardment platform had become. Over the next few years, the Elder Republic launched two more satellites, effectively placing thirty six nuclear missiles -- of those, thirty were categorized MIRVs -- in orbit and allowing for faster deployment of its nuclear weapons against enemy targets in the unlikely event they are ever needed.

Weapons of Mass Destruction -- Historical Information

Postby Xanixi » Tue Aug 20, 2013 6:49 am

The Thedosian nuclear program was a large military defensive project whose origins are actually based in typical scientific studies at the time in the Elder Republic. Initially, scientific teams under the command of the Thedosian government were hired and organized to study the ability for the fission of atoms to be used as a source of potential energy for the future, assuming it could be controlled. This group eventually discovered that it could, indeed, be controlled; however, it also discovered the potential it had for being a deadly weapon within the Thedosian arsenal, and when this was included—in reality, only two lines within the entire document—the Ministry of Defense immediately demanded it be allowed to follow up with its own research.

On September 26th, 1936, just days before Divine Union Day, the Thedosian military would begin a project to study the possibility of a weapon system based around the release of atomic energy and, if determined to be feasible, to construct it in secret. This would later be considered somewhat crucial, as the next year was the start of the Great War.

After the beginning of the war, the Thedosian military diverted even more funds—proportioned to them for the war effort—into the project, its lead scientist, Gabriel George, stating it could be the key to finishing the war with the fewest Thedosian casualties. As the war continued, it eventually became obvious that this could be the case, as the invasion of Kamitsure was taking a toll on Thedosian forces. And so, with great success, on the 9th of October of 1943, the Elder Republic detonated its first nuclear device, a fission-based nuclear weapon, over the deserts of Nilfberg. It was deemed a resounding success, and the production of dozens of these weapons were immediately ordered, with the intention of completely obliterating Kamitsure, piece by piece, should it decide not to surrender.

On the 12th of November of 1943, the Elder Republic warned Kamitsure that, should it decide not to immediately surrender itself to the Elder Republic, that it would take extreme measures to bring the tyrannical government of Kamitsure to a just end. To this, Kamitsure merely replied that it would continue the fight until the Elder Republic was brought to its knees. It did not expect the Thedosian response.

On the 13th of November, a high-altitude heavy bomber from the Imperial Air Force dropped a plutonium-based nuclear weapon over the city of Nagashi, in Kamitsure. The city was completely destroyed, and a total of between 90,000 to 120,000 casualties were reported. On the 15th of November, under threats of a strike on another city, Kamitsure surrendered.

Following this conflict, the Elder Republic continued to develop its military capacity, going so far as to develop submarines capable of launching nuclear-tipped missiles, designing and commissioning several different types of intercontinental ballistic missiles, and much more. Even though official nuclear testing stopped in 1986, development of new variants of ICBMs and other delivery systems are still being funded today, with the most recent project being the orbital weapons platform.
