Commander Title: NA
Commander Name:Haschukai Sdetraka Pujoco
Commander Rank: Grand Admiral-3rd Class (GA.IIIC)
Information (NS rp done with character link, brief description, etc):

Admiral Haschukai on a Revolutionary Council - Party Member Uniform with his Grand Admiral's hat


Haschukai Sdetraka Pujoco, also known as Haschu by his close friends, is a 3rd-Class Grand Admiral serving in the Janpian Revolutionary Navy, holding one of the highest naval ranks in Janpia. He was born on the island of Munshcen to a farming couple and is named after the nearby Mt. Haschukai. Regardless, he attended Hansunschen Elementary School in their hometown where he developed a profound affection for the sea (as they were located near it), and Munschen High School, Yongscha District, in the nearby city of Munschen, where he began working independently. He attended college at the University of Munschen - Marine Engineering Institution and pursued his studies in Marine Science and Navigation, where he became a top scorer in his block.

After graduating, he volunteered to join the Revolutionary Navy where he got the rank of Captain Skipper Class III, and was assigned to a Helgo-Class Corvette, JRS Sugeno Gusan (Sugeno River). He quickly rose through the ranks due to his assistance during patrols and was promoted to Captain Class I, becoming the sole skipper of JRS Sugeno Gusan. He was reassigned to a Gamerov-Class Guided Missile Destroyer, JRS Yebe Snaya (Snow Wind), where he led the ship on various escort and interdiction missions, along with SAR/HADR missions. 

Due to a recommendation from his commanding officer, he rose through the ranks to Rear Grand Admiral, where he was instrumental in developing the structure for the Janpian merchant fleet, primarily focusing on the union organs prior to its debut. During an exercise, his small OPFOR task force defeated an overwhelming landing force, propelling him to the ranks of Grand Admiral Class III. In terms of his personal life, he prefers to go by the name Haschu without the "kai" at the end, which denotes mountains in Janpian. He's also active in the Revolutionary Council meetings, where he usually presents reports to the People's Marshal for the Navy.

The United Kingdom will place an inter-service Ready Reaction Brigade Group at the disposal of ICON. The Reaction Brigade Group can be broken down into two distinct sections. First is the Immediate Response Battlegroup - a reinforced light infantry battalion, capable of deploying within 18 hours of being placed on alert. The second and more significant portion of the Brigade Group is designated the Follow On Force and will enter a given theatre in strength within the subsequent 24-48 hours and brings significant helicopter and artillery support. The Brigade may be partially or fully deployed to cover any required role, and may be reinforced with any further follow on forces as the situation dictates.

The United Kingdom intends to rotate the units that constitute the ICON Ready Reaction Brigade on a rolling basis, as operational requirements necessitate. The initial ICON Brigade Group deployment will be, within Goramite circles, designated as Operation REVERSE SWING 1. All subsequent rotations of the Ready Reaction Brigades units will bare the same name and be listed numerically. REVERSE SWING 1 will consist of the following forces;

1st Ready Reaction Brigade

  • 1 RRB HQ Group

    • HQ Squadron
    • 1st Airborne Signals Squadron
    • 63rd Parachute Supply Company
    • 4th Rescue Company, 10th Special Air Group
  • 1 RRB Support Group

    • 19th Helicopter Wing (Full Spectrum - x24 RH.4 Kite Scout Helicopters, x24 AH.1 Kestrel Attack Helicopters, x36 UH.5/5M Sparrow/Super Sparrow Utility Helicopters)
    • A/B Battery, 112th Airborne Artillery Brigade (x8 M17 105mm Light Guns per battery)
  • Immediate Reaction Force

    • 2nd Battalion, 1/4th Parachute Regiment (Mechanised Light Infantry, 800 troops, equipped with air deployable M83 vehicles.)

Commander Role
Commander Title: Commander, Allied Ground Forces
Commander Name: Hiram Walsh
Commander Rank: Lieutenant General

Darrowby, Central West, United Kingdom…

Lieutenant General Hiram Walsh’s sleek black sedan practically glid as he drove it through an impromptu chicane of HESCO style barriers that lead to the main gate of the Army Headquarters in Darrowby. They, he noted grimly, had not been there when last he had been to this place less than a year previously. Yet, it was no great surprise. Nor were the sentries, patrolling with workman like and effective looking submachine guns displayed conspicuously from slings draped across their necks and shoulders. Such was the reality of all Government and military installations since an attack by Scandin aligned insurgents on the Ironwynth DDSI Office some few months previously. Walsh waited patiently as the gate sentry the General’s military identity card across his handheld reader. The first pass of the card garnered no response from the machine and the sentry grinned sheepishly as he gave the card reader a quick shake, keeping half an eye on the General’s shoulder boards as he did so. On the second swipe of the card, the machine made its pleasing chirping chime and its light pulsed an acceptable green shade.

“Thank you for your patience there, General.”

The sentry said, as he leaned down to hand back the credit card sized identity card. The General, being a relatively laid-back man, brushed the mild inconvenienced off with half a laugh as he declared that occasionally these things happened. He raised his right hand in a salute, which the sentry snapped to attention to return. The car pulled smoothly forward as the gate lifted, and Walsh entered the Darrowby Garrison.

Garrisons, in the parlance of the Army of the United Kingdom, was the name given to any permanent structure – other than training bases or other schools – that housed a military facility. Almost all of them were the home and day to day workplace of some battalion or another or even an entire Regiment in some usually large cases. Darrowby was one of the few exceptions. No one Battalion called the Darrowby Garrison home. Rather, the entire Army did as it was home to the Army Headquarters apparatus. Darrowby might have been considered a usual choice for the Army to choose as its central hub. Located in the Central West of the country, it was a relatively modest town of only about 100,000. But despite that, it was known across the United Kingdom for its spectacular Annist architecture that made extensive use of the particular and somewhat peculiar sort of limestone that the local area is famous for. For this reason, the town of 100,000 was able to draw, on average, two million visitors a year and it was in one of these buildings that the Army had made its home.

The Army had been there for almost 140 years at this point, but the building itself had stood for considerably longer than that. It had been built, at incredible expense, during the late 1750s by a then General in the Queen’s Army. Upon his death, it had passed to his son who, in turn, bequeathed it to the Army upon his own, sadly heirless, death. For some years it languished as the Army failed to know what to do with it until, in 1878, it became the permanent home of the service – and what a home it was. The building itself was a shallow curve, just over 100 metres long. It was clad, as most Darrowby structures from that era were, in uniformly coloured limestone. Its tall windows ran the length of the structure, denoting each of the three floors. Each of the windows on the two uppermost floors were flanked by slightly inset Ionic columns, which ran all the way up to the slate roof above. The style and aesthetic of the building was a common sight in Darrowby, but its sweeping crescent was not. It was almost entirely unique and was a major tourist draw. Now, however, the HESCO barriers prevented the Grade 1 Listed building from being properly seen from the outside. It could only be really appreciated from the inside, but as Walsh’s car turned left through the gate, he barely even noticed it. He had been here so very many times before that the grand architecture of the building had lost much of its allure.

He pulled the car into one of the marked VIP spots, before heading inside. It was a pleasant enough Spring day, and it was quite warm in the sun. Too hot for a jacket, certainly, but he was a Lieutenant General and appearances had to be kept up. As he walked up the steps towards the main entrance, he did so with his Officer’s cap on and the uniform jacket that went with the black semi-formal uniform that was the usual fare of all staff or flag officers.

He walked quickly across the polished wooden floors, and watched as he went by portraits of officers who had gone before. Major General J.E. Butcher, the unfortunately named victor of Salsbury Hill in 1858, was there, staring down at the mere mortals who walked the modern Army’s halls. So were more recent officers, including Lieutenant General S.K. Warne who had, only 80 years prior, lead the invasion of the Gibetian Empire and ultimately forced the abdication of the Kaiserin. Walking under these portraits was something that Walsh never relished. These, most of them anyway, were true, fighting soldiers. He never had been. Indeed, he’d never come close in all his 36 years in the Army. He'd joined straight out of University as a bright eyed and bushy tailed Lieutenant. At that time he’d been a surprisingly bean poleish young man, although one whose already thin head of hair was becoming rapidly thinner. He had done well at the Royal Academy for Officer Candidates, and was shoved straight into command of an infantry platoon – having been adjudged as far too tall for the cavalry units that had always caught his eye as a boy. There he had done tolerably well, gaining the respect of his troops and managing to write for himself a favourable report in almost all training exercises. Company command followed, then a Battalion with multiple deployments to Westphalia, Gravasti, Osten and Mawerisme. He had spent some six years, from platoon to battalion command, manning the bulwark against the Red threat to Westphalia and the other Commonwealth nations. But in that time, he never fired a weapon in anger, and nor did he ever send anyone else to do so. Following battalion command, he moved up to an intelligence position within I Corps command structure and, again, spent years preparing for the titanic battle that as yet had not come. His latest command, one which he had just left, was more of the same. As General Commanding the multinational Southern Army Group, defending the vital Wachtamsee Gap, which follows the gentle curves of the Wachtamsee River in the central and southern portions of Westphalia, he had seen the equation from every possible viewpoint. He had played out every scenario for the action he might one day have to fight but still would not come. As he walked under the portraits of Butcher and Warne, Wilson and Mostert, he sometimes wondered if anyone would ever remember him and his deeds?

The anteroom he stepped into was a grand affair, as anterooms went. Books lined one wall, and one of the tall windows, so striking from the outside, gave the room a brightness that made it feel bigger than it actually was.

“Ah, good morning General!”

The Major behind the desk spoke with an upbeat tone to her voice

“You’re a little early, as always?”

It was true, Walsh had a reputation for habitually being five or six minutes early for his appointments. He abhorred being late to anything, especially in this building.

“General Key is actually ready for you, if you’d care to go in now?”

“Yes please, Major, if that’s alright?”

The Major suppressed a smile at that. There were some Generals known for their prickly personalities within the Goramite Army, but Walsh was not one of them. He was almost universally known as a good man to work for and courteous to a fault to his subordinates – to the point of asking a 29 year old Major ‘if it was alright'.

“Of course, Sir. Go right on in.”

Unseen, she pressed a button below the desk and the main office door clicked slightly open. Walsh nodded his thanks to the Major and stepped out of the grand anteroom and into the substantially grander office beyond it. Behind the desk, made out of dark, rich wood, sat General Sir Nick Key – the United Kingdom’s senior soldier. As Chief of the Army, he was one of only two that actually bore the rank of ‘General’. Everyone else had a prefix before it, but not Sir Nick Key or his deputy - or his deputy – Sir Eoin Roy. The two of them were just ‘Generals’ and that made them the senior men in the Army’s uniform.

Key was a friendly but sober soldier that took his duty very seriously. He was usually a warm man but, on entry into the office, Walsh felt that Key looked different somehow. He looked tired, Walsh thought, like a man with much to worry about and not enough with which to do it.

Don’t we all?

The thought flashed across Walsh’s mind. Certainly, the Army was big but the enemies to the East had been stirring these three months and the service was stretched thin.

“Hiram! Good to see you, do come in! How are you?”

The weariness seemed to disappear from Key as he invited Walsh into the room. The two men had known each other for more than three decades, going back to when Sir Nick had been a lowly Lieutenant Colonel himself, in charge of the battalion in which a 22 year old Walsh had had a platoon.

“Hallo, Nick. I’m well, and you?”

“Oh yes, very well thanks. You’re just back from Southern Army Group? Over the jet lag yet?

“Yes, over the worst of it anyway. Always a bit of a devil coming back from Westphalia, I find.”

“Certainly, yes”

Key gestured to one of the comfortable looking chairs opposite the desk.

“Do sit. We didn’t actually want you to leave that posting, as I’m sure you didn’t really want to do. I imagine after four years it feels a bit like your Army – at least, it did for me.”

“Yes, it did. I was loathed to go, truth be told.”

“Ah well.”

Key waved a hand across his face.

“I’d have preferred you stay there, but we have a new posting for you. Your official orders are here.”

General Key handed over a plain manilla envelope, marked as Open Subscription – the lowest secrecy level in the Goramite military and intelligence community – and bearing Walsh’s name.

“You can open that and read it all at your leisure. Tell me though, what do you know about ICON?”

Walsh looked surprised at the question.

“The International Council of Nations, isn’t it? I’ve heard we’re thinking of an application for membership?”

“Nearly.”

Key corrected him

“It’s the Internationa Coalition of Nations, and we’re not just thinking of it. We’re in. It’s also why you were pulled away from Westphalia.”

“Oh?”

“Yes, ICON is setting up a multinational Fast Reaction Force for intervention and self defence operations. We’ve been approached to put forward a candidate for the position of Allied Commander Ground Forces, and the Minister for Defence put you top of the list. We gave your resume to ICON and they voted you in.”

Walsh was, unsurprisingly, somewhat taken aback by the revelation.

“Allied Commander Ground Forces?”

“Yes. They wanted a man with experience commanding a multinational force and your record with Southern Army Group is exemplary. They vetted and accepted you very quickly indeed.”

Walsh was silent for a few moments. His mind raced. He hadn’t really known what to expect when he’d received the summons to Darrowby, but it certainly was not this.

“I’m sorry Nick, this is all just a bit to take in. When are they expecting me to start?”

“Just as soon as you’re ready, Hiram. Just as soon as you’re ready.”

Commander Role
Commander Title:
Commander Name:Sobarian Arimey
Commander Rank:General-Admiral
Information (NS rp done with character link, brief description, etc):
General Sobarian Arimey began life as an infant born to the military caste of Sombreland. When he was of age, he decided to take his vows to the Kingdom and its monarchs and to serve 30th Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, an infantry regiment, in which he was posted for several years to a garrison command until he saw service on the Five Provinces frontier. There, he was in several small actions against bandits, insurgents, and incursions from Wenchuan.

In the late nineties, he was involved with several actions against large pirate groups threatening Sombreland's shipping, and in 1999 directed a combined forces operation involving Royal Army, Navy and Air Force units. His operation did not simply focus on protecting shipping, but on capturing pirates, gaining intelligence as to where their points of juncture and strongholds were, and striking against them. The hallmark of his success was an attack on the pirate stronghold on the Island of Jenro. This was the final major blow against pirates on the shipping lane; following this they showed far less strength and determination, and had no general leadership.

From 1999 to 2006, a huge number of refugees streamed south into Sombreland's Five Provinces towards the end of the Wenchuan Civil War. The border had become porous, with Wenchuanese warlords claiming to serve the cause of Communism, raided across the border into Sombreland. Arimey, by this time promoted to Lieutenant-General, at the command of the Ministry of Death and Director of Military Affairs, led his army corps to control the border region and stamp out the warlordism. The frontier's security was greatly increased; however Arimey regretted, as he put it "Not finishing the job" dealing with the Wenchuanese refugees who had moved across the border.

From 2009 to 2018, he served as Director of Military Reforms, and was the principal mind behind the modernization of military forces in Sombreland, overhauling systems, methodologies and leadership. Although he is younger than Grand Admiral Teroth, the Director of Military Affairs, he has been honoured to serve under him.

Upon his appointment as Commander, Allied Forces ICON, he was promoted to General-Admiral, with high rank in all three services in the Kingdom of Sombreland.

@Marquesan I hereby proclaim you as the Gothic Mad Scientist, who actually isn't mad but a brilliant genius which every nations military goes to consult when they quietly tell their leaders, "We'll consult our experts" and when asked who they always say "private sources"
