TRIDENT 2018: Initialisation Plan

Recommended Posts










As the Tricontinental Defence Treaty Organisation is substantively, a body created in response to the evolving threat of insurgency, terrorism, and trans-continental imperialism growing in the Tricontinental areas within and between Argis, Thalassa, and Alharu. Noting this, a series of projects must be instituted and executed with sufficient planning, funding, and execution in order to assess, address, and adapt to these common threats the sovereignty of the Tricontinental peoples. As such, the plan shall endeavour to achieve this goal in the natural cooperative spirit of the organisation, culminating in a multilateral effort at peacekeeping, appropriate preemptive measures, and joint combat exercises.


  1. Initialise the meetings between member party leadership for the purpose of multilateral discussion of issues.
  2. Initialise joint-development of defence platforms.
  3. Initialise standardisation apparatus such as common military code, equivalence of rank to a common standard, and planning for common usage of munitions and basic equipment.


Through the given objectives, the organisation shall aim to promote capability of complementary and compatible doctrine, hardware, and organisational elements for the purpose of further bolstering force effectiveness during joint operations.

Following this reasoning, the organisation shall also aim towards a future involving greater efforts towards joint-training and intra-service liaising for the purpose of developing a groundwork for more efficient synergetic integration in both peacetime and wartime scenarios.



This plan will require financial, organisational, and developmental, contributions from all members of the Tricontinental Defence Treaty (TRIDENT). Each individual member will be expected to contribute a fixed amount of monetary units in support of this plan. Each member will also be expected to adopt methodologies and procedure stipulated by the organisation’s leadership.


The TRIDENT leadership stipulates that all member states contribute equal shares from defence budgets to the total expense of the Initialisation Plans.

Accounting and financials shall be under direct scrutiny by the TRIDENT leadership


The Milestone Projects of the Initialisation Plan require coordination of resources and scheduling, to be directly managed by the TRIDENT leadership.

Despite this, TRIDENT Member States shall be responsible for mustering their own contributions be it units, or other assets. Any management of national manpower, reception of resource from other TRIDENT Member States, or dispensation of national resource shall be the Member State’s individual responsibility.

The TRIDENT Personnel Exchange Program (PEP) will be an intra-service exchange of officers and enlisted personnel across all branches of each member state’s armed forces. Treaty members shall hereby establish a committee to coordinate the exchange in manageable batches of member selected personnel. The committee will assign each member’s batch of personnel to counter-part service branches in other member state’s armed forces for the purpose of cross-educating a cadre of personnel from each TRIDENT member state with sufficient experience and knowledge to better prepare their home forces for future joint-operations.

The PEP’s goal is twofold. Firstly, it shall seek to instill and familiarise personnel with the foreign social culture, military culture, and differences in approach that different member states of TRIDENT may have. Secondly, it shall seek to simultaneously train these personnel and familiarise them with the operational procedures of their TRIDENT counter-parts. After such immersion several batches of these exchange personnel should then provide their home nation’s armed forces with a cadre of experienced and knowledgeable personnel capable of preparing their existing and future servicepersons for greater integrated joint-operations with TRIDENT counter-parts on tactical, operational, and strategic scales.

As a result, the PEP’s objectives not only provide an opportunity for exchange and familiarisation between allied military cultures. But more importantly, the PEP, through thorough cross-training and education, lays an essential foundation for future Standardisation Programmes, Joint-Operations, and other collaborations in one or multiple theatres of operation in many if not all aspects of the future TRIDENT battlespaces.
