Commonwealth of Africa Military Thread

Recommended Posts

With the formation of the Imperial Army, the Kingdom began creating lists of what else was needed, stored on encrypted computers deep in Sarnunga.

It was also decided that a dedicated armored corps would be created. This corps would include 393 total tanks, with 350 armored personnel carriers. These vehicles would be combined to create joint infantry-armored divisions, and a single air cavalry brigade that would serve as a quick strike unit.

Specifications for the 1st African Air Cavalry Regiment (1AACR)
[spoiler]390 infantry units
5 Mil Mi-24 Hind
103 T-80 tanks
50 BMP-2 APCs[/spoiler]

The remaining 63,090 soldiers will be divided into infantry units, specializations for specific units to be determined later. T-80s and BMP-2s will be placed into brigades and divisions as necessary.

In the Niger providence, a massive system of anti-tank locations, machine-gun nests, AA positions and bunkers holding 150mm artillery pieces were being built. These would line all borders of the Niger providence, excluding the border with the Nigeria providence. Similar institutions were being built in the providences of Togo, Benin and Nigeria. Unlike the Niger providence, the other providences would have defenses lining the interior borders, in case of a war in which Togo or Benin were captured. Construction of RADAR stations would be located near the AA positions to aid in shooting down aircraft. In addition, in the providences of Nigeria, Togo and Benin, coastal forts were being built with 230mm anti-ship guns and 88mm AA guns.

Sarin gas bomb research completed. Production is expected to begin sometime next year.

Flamethrowers are being developed for infantry. They will be deployed in under-the-barrel compact systems (similar to GP-30 grenade launchers and Masterkey shotguns) and specially trained troops integrated with the regular infantry armed with an updated version of the Soviet ROKS-3 flamethrower, with the main nozzle disguised to imitate an AK-47. Napalm bombs are also in service with the Imperial Air Force.

Flamethrower troops have been integrated into the 1st African Half-Fireteam, 1st Independent Mixed Brigade and the 1st Motorized Division. Flamethrower versions of BMP-2s are being developed to integrate into the 1st African Mechanized Division and 1st African Armored Cavalry Regiment.

All troops have begun training with the AK-74, the standard-issue weapon for the Imperial Army.

An order has been requested to Soldania Modern Arms to replace some T-80 tanks with "King Tiger" HBT variants.

"Sire, as you can see, this map was created after the fall of the Western Alliance and the Browning Confederation...the People's Republic of Africa has completely surrounded us!"
"Yes, I can see that, General Gregoire. Order the troops onto full alert, and tighten border security."
"Yes, sir."

All units in the provinces of Togo and Benin were ordered to move to the border.

All bunkers in all provinces are in the process of being upgraded to house .50 caliber machine guns, 155mm artillery pieces, 88mm AA/AT (anti-air, anti-tank) guns, flamethrower positions and a subway system which will serve as troop and logistical transport, providing quick reinforcement to all bunkers and positions.

Counterintelligence agents have been placed on high alert, and the army has been ordered to keep constant patrols on the borders, especially at night. Overwatch Officers have been patrolling military centers and troop transport locations and checking everyone who attempts to enter and board.

Director of the Vanguard Frontino Sopuluchukwu has ordered Commonwealth Intelligence Agency operatives to prepare to insert sleeper agents and subversive agents into the People's Republic of Africa's Niger province, officially claimed in the Commonwealth's sphere of influence in Directive Order 203. If successful in infiltrating the border, these agents will prepare for an eventual strike against PRA forces when the Commonwealth itself "liberates" the area, assuming the PRA does not hand it over itself. The agents will incite anti-PRA propaganda in the area, and encourage the Niger peoples to rise up and join the Commonwealth.

[b]Encrypted Message to the Commonwealth of Africa[/b]

[quote]"The Union of the Southern Cross has noted the Commonwealth's recent troubles with the Peoples' Republic of Africa. We find it rather disconcerting that the general consensus of this showdown could result in war, and might even result with the PRA owning most of North and West Africa. While we find the PRA to be a stable nation, we rather dislike the notion of such a leftist political apparatus, which kept the dreadful Red Dawn organization afloat for so long, being in control of such swathes of territory. We find its' expansion to be contrary to interests globally, especially near major shipping lanes and the Central Atlantic.

For these reasons, we offer the services of the Union of the Southern Cross Military-Industrial Complex and the Southern Cross Defense Forces to assist the Commonwealth in the defense of its nation. We are willing to offer reduced prices on firearms, ammunition, missiles of all sorts, vehicles, anti-aircraft weaponry, and aircraft, all top-of-the-line models, to assist the Commonwealth in this endeavor. All of these shipments would be, of course, under the table, and completely confidential. 'Civilian' personnel are also available for maintenance and training personnel in the optimum use of this equipment."[/quote]

IC:

With sleeper agents placed in the PRA's Niger province, the Commonwealth looked inward. Most Commonwealth weapons and armored units were Soviet-era equipment, hardly able to provide defense to a trained idiot. An offer was made by the USC, and Director Frontino Sopuluchukwu knew the importance of a well-equipped army. A message was sent to the USC:

[quote][b]Encrypted to the Union of the Southern Cross[/b]

Director of the Vanguard Frontino Sopuluchukwu will gladly take up this offer. We would like to know the cost of:

150,000 M8G 5.56mmx45 Modular Assault Rifle
3,000 MK43 7.62mmx51 Medium Machinegun
368 Mk14 EBR Designated Marksman Rifle
153,368 Px4 Storm 9mmx19 Parabellum Semi-Automatic Pistol

2,000 SPIKE Fourth-Generation AT Missile System - HEAT Warhead
200 ASLAV Armored Personnel Carrier
200 STRYKER Armored Troop Transport
297 Leopard 2A9 Main Battle Tank

10 F-15 "Silent Eagle" Tactical Strike Fighter-Bomber
20 F-35 "Lightning II" Multirole Stealth Fighter

20 B-2G "Spirit" Strategic Stealth Bomber
25 HH-53 "Pave Low" Heavy Assault Helicopter

The costs of all purchases will be sent to USCMIC and SCDF upon confirmation of the bills.

400 BMP-2s will be scrapped. 150 BMP-2 flamethrower variants will be reassigned to the 1stAACR. 387 T-80 tanks will be used in all current armored divisions except for the 4th Armor and the 1stAACR. All air units will be scrapped upon arrival of new air units. The only units that would remain in service with the Commonwealth Army would be the Sturmtiger, Katyusha MRLS, T-80, BMP-2F and the 6 "King Tiger" HBT in both tank and demolition gun packages. Motorized divisions would use GMC CCKW "Deuce and a Half" trucks.

[quote]"We would be happy to provide these weapons at a reduced charge of $X,XXX,XXX,XXX (OOC: It'd be a hassle to just put all the costs in), though might we suggest some augmentations of the order. Although a little older in airframe design then the F-35 Lightning II, the F-23 Black Widow would be a better plane for air superiority work, and is a superior dogfighter to the less-agile F-35 Lightning II, a plane that is employed by the People's Republic of Africa. Might we suggest supplying a squadron of F-23 as well to your order, to give you something to fight the F-35 Lightning II fighters with?

On top of this order of F-23 Fighters, we would suggest in also purchasing SAM-500, SAM-505, and SRSAM-95 Surface-to-Air Missiles, the SRSAM-95 has a great infrared guidance system that would make it worthwhile use against stealth aircraft. The SAM-500 Medium-Range missile also has a high resistance to countermeasures, and is useful against many types of airborne threats, including ballistic missiles. The mobile vehicle launchers for these missiles would come complimentary to the missile package order.

The Leopard 2A9 Main Battle Tanks come fully upgraded with CanberraComposite Armor, which can break up a sabot round from a 125mm 44-calibre gun, and carries a 120mm 55-calibre smoothbore cannon. The tank is well protected, and comes with add-on armor kits with reactive armor that adds to the CanberraComposite's effectiveness, plus armored cages to detonate RPG rounds before they can hit the tank. Even without the cage, testing has seen USC Leopard 2A9s take as many as seventy-five hits from rocket-propelled grenades and still able to return to base, depending on hit location. Armored kits also protect the running wheels and drive sprockets from damage from RPG rounds, and the vehicle continues to remain a heavy-hitter despite its design being from the seventies.

This shipment can be sent via both air and sea transport, and the first shipments can arrive within two days under the right type of flying conditions. Technicians and trainers will be ready to arrive as soon as payments are received. We ask that these transactions are made via direct cash to the Union of the Southern Cross Embassy, who will have staff on hand to help with the transactions."[/quote]
