Special Report on the War Command of The Imperial States of Europe 

     Today we evaluate the Forces that defend the greatest nation on the planet of Earth, The Imperial States of Europe, with valor, honor, and vigor. As we all know, the Imperial War Command has five branches: Land Warfare Command, commonly known as the Army, Air and Space Warfare Command, commonly known as the Airforce, Naval Command, commonly known as the navy, Strategic Command, commonly known as the Missiles, and Special Operations Command, commonly known as the Marines. Each of these branches we'll examine with care in their own paragraphs, with detailed statistics. 

Land Warfare Command, the largest branch, the boots on the ground. These are the people that defend our forts, our cities and our homes. Without Land Warfare Command, there would be no ISOE, no freedom from the capitalists. Land Warfare has many branches in itself that help each other too. In Land Warfare, there are 19 corps, which are groups of 3 divisions, which are in turn 7 brigades. Each brigade is 3 thousand people. Each division is 21 thousand people. Each corps is 104 thousand people. The entire Army is one corps of people, plus logistical support. In the army, most of the people in it are infantry, and most of those infantry (Around 75%) are mechanized infantry. But the remaining bit is armoured infantry, who are infantry also trained to operate IFVs,  light tank-like armoured vehicles. Moving on to the mainstay of the armoured forces, the main battle tank, usually Imperial armoured doctrine is based on shoot-and-scoot artillery tactics with a powerful main gun and yet a speed that is to be respected. The Army is predominantly people in the 20-25 conscription years, but career soldiers are also present, and they form the brick and mortar that binds the Army together. Also in the army, a policy of right to military service for all is pursued, as ignoring half of the population of the ISOE is just foolhardy. But getting into the upper high echelons is a challenge that requires people to have excessive amounts of three things: strategic ability (obviously), loyalty to the state and ruthlessness. 

Air and Space Command is the third-largest branch but the second-most important because of what it provides for all the other branches in reconnaissance. Without the "eyes in the sky", the Army wouldn't know what it was dealing with, and it would lose more people than was acknowledged to be efficient. To a lesser extent the Airforce is also important to the ground forces because when the ground forces can call in airstrikes, but most of the assets of the Airforce are designed to deal with reconnaissance. The Airforce only runs five types of aircraft: the "Pigeon" multi-role fighter, the "Dove" light recon aircraft, the "Owl" heavy recon aircraft, and the "Raven" tactical bomber. While each of these aircraft perform different roles, pilots-in-training are trained to fly all five so they can be assigned to anything.

Naval Command is in many ways the least important branch to the War Command because of the lack of trade that goes on between the ISOE and the rest of the world. Where other navies need to guard their convoys of supplies going to other countries, all the Navy has to do is guard commandoes of the Special Operations Command going to their targets. Because of this, the Navy is mostly submarines, but with a small fleet of destroyers and a heavy cruiser. This heavy cruiser is the pride of the Navy, and is named "Pride of the People". It is equipped with two double 30cm gun turrets on the front, an ASW helicopter on the back, and missiles on the sides. The destroyers are mostly anti submarine warfare specialized with a few anti-aircraft specialists mixed in. The submarines are all ultra silent electric attack subs with a very small size.

Strategic Command is in charge of unconventional weapons, and although the Imperial States of Europe doesn't have many, it tries to prepares for every eventuality, even decades in advance. The Missiles (So named because they build nuclear missile silos in the absence of missiles) try everything from nuclear weapons to telepathy in an effort to gain a major strategic advantage over the enemy, no matter what it takes. While War Command officers are known for being ruthless, the Missiles have permission to do almost anything to get information about a possible strategic advantage. Each officer gets their own squad, and they have authority to take everything from a mysterious chemical, to a 3-year-old's favourite toy. 

Special Operations Command are the commandoes of War Command, and although some say they should be part of the Army, and many others say they should be commanded by Strategic Command, everyone who has ever seen the Marines in action advocates that they should remain a branch. When Special Operations Command is sent on a mission, usually it succeeds. Most members of Special Operations are naval invasion specialists (Hence the nickname "Marines") many others are paratroopers, jungle rangers, and mountaineers. Special Operations excels at specific environments like a worm excels at digging, but they're lightweight and don't have many heavy guns and almost no vehicles, so they're usually very slow. Also, they have to quickly be reinforced or they will die from the lack of supplies they take.

Special Report on the Land Warfare Command of the Imperial States of Europe's Ranks

     Since Imperial warfare is based on order, nothing is more important than a well organized rank structure that corresponds to the vehicles being used. The Land Warfare Command's ranks are based on the vehicles being used, from the Templar-class IFV, to the Destroyer-class MBT. All of these vehicles are being used in active service, and they're based on 6 people maniples. These are the ranks of the Army.

Recruit - The rank when starting training

Legionnaire - The lowest rank of combat.

Veteran - Second in command of a 6 person maniple, will take over if Leader dies.

Second Primarius - Leader of a 6 person maniple (One IFV or MBT's crew)

First Primarius - Second in command of a 25 person section, will take over if Leader dies.

Lieutenant - Leader of a 25 person section (4x maniples and a lieutenant)

Captain - Second in command of a 100 person century, will take over if Leader dies.

Centurion- Leader of a 100 person century (4x section, one lieutenant is replaced with a captain, other is sub-captain)

Major - Leader of a 1000 person cohort (10x century)

Lt. Cl. - Leader of a 10k person legion (10x cohort)

Cl. - Leader of a 21k people division (2x brigade + 1 Airmobile Cohort)

 Lt .General - Leader of the 104k people corps (5x division)

Praetor - Leader of the corps (Entire army)

Consul - Rank of dictator

*Corps system exists in case a rapid expansion is required. A corps would cover a theatre, and an army would cover a side of the planet. No senior leadership exists for an army because the War Command is reluctant to get top-heavy.*

    • BREAKING: President Duval announces snap general election for late November; first Prymontian Rus elections due November 2nd NEW HALSHAM, COURTMARSH - President George Duval has confirmed that, amidst the rumours of the past few days, the United States will be holding a snap general election on November 30th. This will come as a surprise to few, as rumours and hints have been circulating since September that pressure within Courtmarsh House has been building for a new parliament. The public are holding Duval to account for the failure to meet election promises: lower military spending, reduce unemployment, increase public services spending, and stabilise the chaotic political situation of central Argis. Politicians are also unhappy with Duval, as the National Party are now being accused of rigging the historic July 2017 elections to hand themselves an overwhelming majority. Prymont's five main political parties have been given just under six weeks to prepare and publish their election campaigns. The National Party confirmed that Duval will be their President if their campaign is successful, and despite their declining support figures, they are still the party to beat. The People's Party, a centre-right conservative group headed by Felix Frey, are believed to be the biggest threat to the National's majority, as they appeal to the public by promoting capitalism and promising the generation of thousands of jobs. The United Prymont Future Party, another centre-left organisation much like the Nationals, are believed to be a slightly riskier alternative, as they promise to reverse the recent tax increases and lower the cost of living. PNN will provide detailed coverage of the lead-up to election day. In addition to this news, the President has also revealed that the newly formed Prymontian Rus will have their own general election on November 2nd, after months of trouble and turmoil. The USP humanitarian groups have been successful in quelling the disputes of the land, and have sought enough former and new politicians to create a varied political landscape. The National Party-backed Iskander Yegerov, of the National Rus Party, is a firm favourite for voters and fellow politicians alike to win the Premiership.  This news has not been met without trouble in the United States, as voters have gathered on the streets of New Halsham to protest Prymont's involvement in the new country. Many believe that the National Party are using the former Hellenic Rus state to gain further political control over central Argis, and to channel funds into boosting the United States' military capabilities. However, the 'takeover' of the country can be a positive investment, as engineers have already started work on the Canamo Canal in newly purchased southern lands bordering the Mediargic Sea, which will massively improve maritime trade with the area and propel local economies into significant wealth. 
      President Duval photographed shortly after announcing the snap general election.   Ostport state government shows plans for β3 billion 5-year renovation plan CANASTOTA, OSTPORT - In an annual state government public consultation, the Ostport state government have revealed a staggering three billion Prynd renovation and upgrade plan for the next five years. Ostport's considerable growth since the creation of the United States has been hard to ignore, and Canastota has long been the most populous city in the country. Many companies are now choosing to locate their headquarters in the state's capital, such as massive economic benefactors the Kaldestad Aamot Group, the Northern Bank of Ostport financial giant, and alpine equipment specialists Koren. It is also understood that the completion of the Canamo Canal in late 2019 will bring great trade benefits to Canastota, the docks of which are already receiving β300m for upgrades to handle the added capacity. This monumental amount of money for one state will be going to several good public causes. Public transport will be the recipient of approximately half of this capital, to invest in new transport hubs, rail and bus routes, modern equipment, and new job roles. Hospitals in the state will also receive funding to ease staff restraints and modernise equipment, while money will also go to supporting families who have lost jobs through the demise of the fishing industry as well as reorganising public services such as unemployment schemes, homelessness reduction plans, and charities chosen by the public. The plan is the brainchild of Jasper Revheim, a critical figure in Ostportian politics since the 2017 elections. Revheim represents the National Party, and hopes that this scheme will support his chances of reelection in November.
      High speed trains like these, pictured in Canastota's Sparby Station as part of the Canastota-New Halsham Line, will become common with the new funding.   Kaldestad Aamot Group purchases Central Canastota Sports Stadium KAP STADIUM, OSTPORT - The Central Canastota Sports Stadium was constructed in 1995 to bring sports in the United States to a global stage. It is the current home of the Prymontian Yetis, the country's national football team, as well as the Canastota Sharks, one of the top teams in the domestic league. Over the years, the CCSS has also hosted music concerts, rugby matches, and boxing events, showcasing the diversity of the arena. The Prymontian Football Association, the governing body of football in the United States, also calls the stadium it's home.  In 2012 the stadium underwent expensive renovations to bring it up to date with modern standards and equipment, as well as providing a higher seating capacity and providing space within the stadium grounds for public shopping areas to provide an additional source of income. In 2017, the stadium went up for sale, as the National Party sought to generate revenue and eliminate unnecessary expenditure. Today, a new owner has been found in the Kaldestad Aamot Group, one of the largest companies in the US.  The stadium has been renamed to the KAP Stadium, promoting the largest brand within the KAG, and CEO Erik Bruun has revealed plans to create a 'greater sports complex'. These plans include a superdome for domed sports and exhibition events, a velodrome, an aquatics centre, and an indoor karting circuit. The cost of purchasing the stadium and surrounding land is yet to be disclosed, but it is believed that the Group will be spending billions in the coming years to create the world standard in sporting complexes. 
      A CGI rendition of the planned superdome.   Prymontian Yetis top the standings in the Argic & Northern Alharun Football Association Cup CANASTOTA, OSTPORT - The ANAFA League Cup began on the 10th of October, with ten of the best teams from the two continents playing for glory. The Prymontian Yetis were successful in qualifying for the Cup, and drew in a friendly against Limonaia before the league commenced. In the first game, the Yetis beat @Soreana by 3 goals to 1, placing them atop the standings with the Limonaians. The second round of matches were held on the 20th, and Prymont were victorious once more, beating @Limonaia 2-1 to improve upon their previous draw. This win kept the Yetis at the top of the table, joined only in points by @Variota. Thus far, the Yetis have scored the most goals in the tournament, and have the greatest positive goal difference. The team couldn't have gotten off to a better start, and are receiving great praise from supporters, but pundits are yet to be complacent with their position. In years gone by, the Yetis have shown glimmers of hope, only to be shot down shortly after by poor plays, inadequate players, and failing leadership. Team manager Nojus Fauskanger assembled a mixed squad of promising youths and experienced veterans for the 2018 @Orioni World Cup, and while the team exited that tournament in the group stages, many applauded their performance. Now, with weak links out and new players in, the Yetis are showing stronger than ever, and many are confident that they will go on to the quarter finals in December. Others are adamant that it is only a matter of time before the team return to their old ways of failure and demise, but captain Vincent Borge hopes to silence those critics. "Our team has played brilliantly so far, and we've changed our training methods and squad rotation to ensure that we're always at our best. We've got some amazing players on board this year, and it's now the start of something great for Prymont's national football scene." The Yetis will next play @Seylos on the 24th of October.

    • Transport Ministry, Dartha "...of course, we'll give regular updates to the Senate as requested...thank you Senator Charvanek...and a good day to you too," and he hung up the phone. Miro Tumel had just been promoted to Chief Engineer, the immediate subordinate to the Minister, two weeks earlier after his predecessor was removed from his position due to a major disagreement with a powerful Jaridan senator. The identity of this politician was never divulged but he suspected that it was his newfound senatorial backer, Livana Charvanek. Now wasn't the time to contemplate this and rather to put his skills to work on getting the high-speed railway project off the ground. Up until today, Yhfillain, the more notable face of the Ministry, had been charged almost exclusively on operating the public transport system - the commuter railways of the three major cities, the intercity bus network, and the various riverbus services along the major waterways and along the coast of the Apnex Sea. Now, this body had been ordered to be responsible for the planning and construction of a high-speed line between the capital, Dartha, and the third-largest (yet second-most important) city, Peldred to the southeast in the Chetris Province. This was a completely foreign territory for the Ministry. He knew that the Senate wanted quick results to show the masses that they were addressing their concerns. He adjusted himself in his desk chair and pressed a buzzer on his intercom. "Elvia, can you come in here please?" he asked. She was his secretary, equally attractive and unemotional in her work. "Yes sir," she inquired, getting her pad at the ready to take down his instructions. "I want you to work with Jeran and Ulik in preparing a contract posting for an engineering and design consultant to help us with the high-speed project." She nodded in acknowledgment. "Both of them already have all the details from me as to what is required of our eventual contractor," he said pausing for a moment. "And one other thing," he began, Elvia was attentive, "Senator Chavarnek and I are supposed to meet every week, can you work with her aide and set it up." Elvia began skimming his calendar as he was saying this. "I'll get on it right away. Anything else sir?" she inquired. "Not now," he responded. "That will be all." She nodded once more and left the room. After she was out of the office, he picked up his phone and called Almor. "My friend, how are you...and the children...good, good. I am sure you heard the latest over Tlaru Aihrifv Rheilhhu...you have? Then I don't have to go over the entire story with you...is it possible for you to arrange a meeting between me, the Mayor (Maiori) of Peldred, Cildan; and Chetris Governor (Jahærenen) Lakol? Thank you. Call me on my cellphone the moment you have that three-way conversation confirmed...we'll talk again soon, have a good day..."

    • "...sounding second alarm at Via Zannoni 3381, fire has spread from vehicle to nearby housing..." "...additional units requested at Via Renauld 477 for domestic disturbance, neighbor reports argument regarding footballing..." "Turn that off." "...all available units in area, respond immediately to Embassy of Asgeirria, diplomatic quarter, this is an officer needs help call..." "...10-16, 10-16, respond immediately for support to Via Rocca de Baldi 88, fire unit reports being under attack by hooligans..." "I SAID TURN THAT RADIO OFF." Senior Inspector Prisco Vigliotti bellowed the order at the driver of the police bus, who finally switched off the dispatch radio. Vigliotti did not even bother to mutter a thank you before turning back to his platoon of riot officers. "We are thirty seconds out. Remember: no deadly force. This is the eighth game in ten years that we haven't lost. The president does not want this success undermined by bloodshed." The field officer of the Faramontese Paramilitary Police had barely finished that last statement when the bus suddenly lurched to a stop, nearly throwing the man -- the equivalent of a captain in the army -- to the ground. "I can't get any closer," the driver said, "there's fire trucks in the way." "Amateurs," Vigliotti remarked with contempt, eyeing the firefighting vehicles, before turning back to his men. "Alright, then. WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU WAITING FOR. DISEMBARK, NOW. MOVE!" The thirty paramilitaries onboard jumped to their feet and quickly exited the vehicle through its three doors, forming up on the pavement outside. They found a scene of utter chaos. The local and national police had been trying to keep order near Terrome Stadium, but clearly, that effort had failed. Injured policemen were sitting everywhere, being helped by firefighters and paramedics. Up ahead, Vigliotti could see that some firefighters and other volunteers were helping to maintain the police's haphazard riot line. The acrid smell of smoke and the sound of sirens filled the air, but above all else, it was the noise of the crowd -- the screaming, the breaking glass, the brawling -- that stood out.  "Well," Vigliotti said to no one in particular, staring past the police line at mob of several thousand Faramontese football fans violently celebrating their team's narrow escape of defeat, "it would appear we have our work cut out for us."
