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.*

Special Report on the Assault Aviation Brigades of the Special Operations Command.

Formations of a Assault Aviation Brigade

Maniple - 8 people, one helicopter, commanded by a leader

Flight - 25 people, three helicopters, commanded by an added lieutenant

Squadron - 100 people, 12 helicopters, commanded by a centurion

Wing - 1000 people, 120 helicopters, commanded by a major

Force - 3000 people, 360 helicopters, commanded by a lt. colonel

If a helicopter had the markings A.B.C.D, this would indicate it was part of A Maniple of B Flight of C Squadron of D Wing.

This includes multiple support squadrons of different types, but not the supply train that brings the supplies to the front.

Any formation of squadron size or larger may obtain an official nickname, like “The Flying Devils”, or “Europe’s Fists”.

Every brigade gets a air escort of 200 fighters.

(OOC: If there is a problem with this, please tell me.)
