The American Commonwealth was formed on January 7th, 20XX in the aftermath of the Empire of Pravus Ingruo's withdrawal from most of its former territories. The states of Pennsylvania, Maryland and New Jersey decided to form a new nation. Not too long later the states of Virginia and West Virginia were added to the Commonwealth after the USVR collapsed and Delaware not long after that. West Virginia was allowed to go its own way but has recently rejoined the Commonwealth since the collapse of the UCNA.

The Commonwealth has a fairly diverse range of economic activity within its borders. Pennsylvania alone accounts for nearly 56% of the nation's economic activity. Agriculture is primarily found in Pennsylvania where agrarian activities continue to flourish and expand. Commercial fishing is primarily conducted in the Chesapeake Bay through the state of Maryland but much less so along the New Jersey shoreline.

Industry and Manufacturing is primarily located in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Pittsburgh alone is home to 4 major steel corporations. Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Jersey City and Baltimore are home to major manufacturing centers. Natural Gas exploration is also an important economic endeavor that takes place in western Pennsylvania. A rapidly growing bio-technology sector accounts for a large part of Maryland's economic activity.

The tertiary economic sector dominates most of Washington DC's economic activity and a fair portion of Maryland's. Washington DC itself is home to renowned companies like Fannie-Mae and the Washington Post. Financial services and consulting activities are also on the rise in other major cities throughout the commonwealth.

[size="7"][u][b]Military Overview[/b][/u][/size]
The military of the American Commonwealth is charged with protecting the Commonwealth's territory, citizens and national interests. During the transition to statehood the Empire of Pravus Ingruo military was relieved by local national guard units who were charged with maintaining order after the withdrawal. The National Guard would form the basis of the new military of the American Commonwealth. Today the military has grown to accommodate the Commonwealth's defense requirements and is a modernizing force that will be able to meet any foreseeable threat in the near future.

The American Commonwealth military is an all volunteer force although there have been proposals to introduce mandatory conscription to increase available manpower but this has been met with resistance from both military officials as well as the general population. The military itself operates under doctrine of civilian control of the military under the direct command of the President of the Commonwealth.

Secretary of Defense: Robert Larson
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs: General Alexander Morgan
Total Manpower: 312,553 (includes civilians as well as military personnel)

[size="5"][u][b]Air Force[/b][/u][/size]
The American Commonwealth Air Force is composed of former Air National Guard units as well as former airfields and other support facilities. It possesses a total of 300 combat aircraft, roughly 100 transport, support and auxiliary aircraft and a manpower of 10,000 staff.

AIRCRAFT:
F-15 Eagle
F-16 Fighting Falcon

C-5 Galaxy
E-3 Sentry
E-4 Nighwatch
KC-10 Extender


[size="5"][u][b]Navy[/b][/u][/size]
The American Commonwealth Navy actually has no ties with any form of National Guard unit, as there was no naval branch of the national guard. Instead it was formed by some elements of the coast guard, Maryland & New Jersey Naval Militia's and a new start. Compared to the other services it is much smaller as it possesses no blue water capable combat vessels and is relegated to coastal patrol duties. Currently the Navy's strength is at 18 Pegasus class Hydrofoil Missile Boats, 20 Auxiliary vessels and 4000 personnel.

SHIPS:
PMH Pegasus Class Hydrofoil Missile Boats.

OOC: I know it's kind of crappy but I'll add to it later.

Army (Overview)
The American Commonwealth Army was initially formed from the various state national guard units. It is now a much larger force that is now responsible for the physical defense of the American Commonwealth's territory and it's interests. With a strength of 470,000 combat troops along with a couple hundred thousand support troops and civilian staff it has a total manpower of nearly 610,000. Current stocks of equipment include 4700 tanks, roughly 4000 APCs, over 3000 other armored vehicles, 860 artillery pieces, and over 50,000 support vehicles.


MISSION
The American Commonwealth Army serves as the land-based branch of the American Commonwealth Military and is charged with:

  • Preserving the peace and security and providing for the defense of the American Commonwealth and all possessions and any areas occupied by the Commonwealth
  • Supporting the national policies
  • Implementing the national objectives
  • Overcoming any nations responsible for aggressive acts that imperil the peace and security of the Commonwealth

LEADERSHIP
Commander in Chief: President David Bronson
Secretary of the Army: Henry Jacobs
General of the Army: General Kyle Johnson


HISTORY
The American Commonwealth Army was formed on January 9th 20XX, two days after the formation of the American Commonwealth. When the Empire of Pravus Ingruo withdrew from most of it's American territories they left the local national guard units responsible for maintaining peace and stability and it was from these units that the army was first formed. Since then it has grown into a larger, and much more capable, modern army that is still constantly changing and improving its equipment and fighting methods.


COMMAND STRUCTURE & ORGANIZATION
The American Commonwealth Army is composed of an all volunteer force of mainly active duty units with a small amount of support reserve units. The primary operating area for the Army would be the Commonwealth proper and it's force organization reflects that with the creation of geographically oriented combat commands along with with other function service support commands.

COMBAT COMMANDS

The American Commonwealth is divided into six geographically based combat commands, each administered by and operationally responsible to a single Corps, with the exception of the Capitol Defense Command.

I Corps is responsible for most of the area surrounding the Chesapeake Bay and its primary mission is to defend this central area of the Commonwealth as well as maintaining forces that can be used for contingencies for nearby commands and expeditionary forces. It is composed primarily of lighter forces than some of the other commands due to it's more central nature and the lack of a actual threat to prepare against. I Corps is composed of the 1st Infantry Division, 3rd Infantry Division, 1st Airborne Division, 2nd Airborne Division and the 7th Armored Division.
II Corps is responsible for the defense of Eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey and is composed of mechanized infantry and some armor units. It is likely that II Corps will be able to provide additional forces for operations in western Pennsylvania if needed. II Corps is composed of the 4th Infantry Division, 52nd Infantry Division and the 6th Armored Division.
III Corps is responsible for defending Western Pennsylvania and is composed of mainly mechanized and armor units due to the terrain and the probably highly mobile nature of any fighting that might take place there. III Corps is composed of the 2nd Infantry Division, 5th Infantry Division, 28th Infantry Division, 1st Cavalry Division, 1st Armored Division, 3rd Armored Division, 4th Armored Division,
IV Corps is responsible for the defense of the Appalachian mountain range on the Western Commonwealth border. Due to this mission it is composed of specialized mountain and light infantry units. IV Corps is composed of the 1st Mountain Division, 2nd Mountain Division, 3rd Mountain Division, 60th Infantry Division and the 72nd Infantry Division.
V Corps is responsible for the defense of most of Virginia and the southern border of the Commonwealth. Similar to III Corps, it is composed of mobile units due to the probability of a mobile fight. V Corps is composed of the 6th Infantry Division, 43rd Infantry Division, 2nd Cavalry Division, 2nd Armored Division and the 5th Armored Division.
The Capitol Defense Command is responsible for protecting Washington D.C., the capitol of the American Commonwealth, from external and internal threats. Forces allocated to this command include the Capitol Defense Division and several other support units.


TABLE OF ORGANIZATION AND EQUIPMENT

Infantry Brigade
An infantry brigade consists of three maneuver battalions (infantry), a reconnaissance squadron, artillery battalion, a special troops battalion and a support battalion and an armor company. Each Brigade is capable of sustaining independent operations with it's organic logistics capabilities which but can be enhanced if supported by a divisional sustainment brigade. Each infantry battalion consists of 1000 men subdivided into four companies plus headquarters and includes organic weapons support (heavy weapons). While designated as plain infantry the infantry brigade is a general outline of any infantry based unit and is the standard composition of light and airborne brigades in service although some equipment may vary depending on unit.
[spoiler]

[/spoiler]
Infantry Brigade (Mechanized)
An mechanized infantry brigade is somewhat similar to a standard infantry brigade and consists of three maneuver battalions (infantry), a reconnaissance squadron, artillery battalion, a special troops battalion, a support battalion and an armor company. The main difference is the usage of infantry fighting vehicles and armored personnel carrier to transport troops into battle and support them rather than relying on trucks and light wheeled vehicles for transportation.
[spoiler]

[/spoiler]
Air Assault Brigade
An Air Assault Brigade consists of three air assault battalions, an artillery battalion, a reinforced aviation assault battalion, a special troops battalion and a support troops battalion. An Air Assault Brigade is essentially an infantry brigade redesigned for air mobile and air assault operations with the addition of extra aviation assets to the brigade. It is capable of lifting a whole battalion in one wave with its own aviation assets and possesses equipment also used by paratroopers to lighten up its units as much as possible.
[spoiler]

[/spoiler]
Armored Brigade
An armored brigade is the heaviest brigades in the army available for the Commonwealth's military doctrine and proportionally one of the strongest. It consists of two armored battalions, a reconnaissance squadron, artillery battalion, a special troops battalion and a support battalion. Each armored battalion is composed of four armored and one mechanized infantry company giving it organic infantry support and negating the need for armor and infantry units to cross post sub-units, although this still occurs if necessary..
[spoiler]

[/spoiler]
Armored Cavalry Brigade
The armored cavalry brigade consists of three cavalry squadrons, a recon squadron, an artillery battalion, special troops battalion and a support battalion. It is unique in that a very high amount of combat strength is imbedded into it's three cavalry squadrons which possess infantry fighting vehicles, tanks and attack and observation helicopters. It's primary purpose is to be a heavy hitting mobile unit used for reconnaissance in force and the screening of friendly forces during military operations. While capable of acting independently armored cavalry brigades are often organized into divisions to provide coordinated ACAV capabilities for a larger area.
[spoiler]

[/spoiler]
Combat Aviation Brigade
An aviation brigade consists of two attack aviation battalions, an aviation reconnaissance battalion, an assault aviation battalion, a general aviation battalion and an aviation support battalion. While all brigades have a small organic general aviation company the Combat Aviation Brigade is attached at the divisional level and provides division commanders a wide range of aviation capabilities including heavy attack missions, transport, reconnaissance and general logistics capabilities. It is not unheard of to attach a couple of small fixed wing observation aircraft or UAVs to these units to further enhance their capabilities when needed.
[spoiler]

[/spoiler]
Support Troops Brigade
A support troops brigade is normally attached at the division level and contains the division headquarters as well as units that are necessary for additional support for a larger sized operations force. The support troops brigade consists of the divisional headquarters, an engineer battalion, divisional support battalion, two artillery battalions and two air defense battalions,. The Support Troops Brigade provides the underlying network for divisional command and control as well as providing support assets to enhance the maneuver capabilities of it's subordinate brigades as well as providing additional fire support and air defense capabilities.
[spoiler]

[/spoiler]
Sustainment Brigade
A Sustainment Brigade is an important part of the Commonwealth military's logistics support capability by providing a modular unit capable of supporting several brigades or divisions in field and combat operations indefinitely. Even though individual brigades have their own organic logistics units the support of a sustainment brigade provides a guaranteed availability of equipment, services and supplies for any range of operations. Sustainment brigades are also able to provide additional essential rear area facilities like hospitals, repair facilities and other support functions to supplement those found in individual brigades for multi-divisional operations.
Special Forces Command
The American Commonwealth Army Special Forces are the Army's primary special operations force.  Able to provide a wide range of missions and capabilities, the Special Forces Command is the largest special operations unit in the Commonwealth military. The Army Special Forces Command is divided into ten groups each consisting of four special forces battalions and an HQ and Group Support battalion. Each special forces battalion contains a headquarters (12), support group (12) and three line companies of 132 men each.
[spoiler]
18000 troops (total)
1740 troops (per group)
[/spoiler]
Commonwealth Army Rangers

The Commonwealth Army Rangers are the military's premier light infantry, special operations unit.  While organized as a normal infantry brigade, Ranger Regiments are much more capable units that can be called upon for virtually any mission.

The M-16A4 is the American Commonwealth's primary service rifle. Designed by Eugene Stoner and produced by Colt Armaments since the late 1950s the M-16 series is one of the most widely used weapons in the world. Chosen primarily for it's availability and it's service record the M-16 continues to serve as an effective assault rifle. This weapon is in use by all branches of the American Commonwealth military as well as many police forces. The A4 variant provides full length picatinny rails to allow the addition of accessories like grips, lights, laser sights, etc.

The M249 Squad Automatic Weapon is a common weapon issued to American Commonwealth infantry units, found at the fire team level. The SAW provides a good measure of firepower to support infantry units in combat. Because it uses the same type of ammunition as the M-16, logistics are simplified and ammunition is interchangeable. When employed in combat it is usually the SAW gunner's job to pin down the enemy while friendly units close the distance and destroy the threat.



[u][b]M240B MMG[/b][/u]
[img]http://world.guns.ru/userfiles/images/machine/mg06/fn_mag_b.jpg[/img]

[b]Information[/b]

The M240 is the widely used replacement for the ubiquitous M-60 GPMG. Issued at the platoon level, these weapons allow Commonwealth forces to bring heavy sustained firepower to any engagement and are found in every heavy weapons squad. It is also a very common sight on vehicles as either a primary or secondary weapon.


[u][b]M60 GPMG[/b][/u]
[img]http://world.guns.ru/userfiles/images/machine/mg12/m60e4.jpg[/img]

[b]Information[/b]

The AT-4 is generally used as a heavier weapon compared to the M72 LAW as it has a longer range and packs a bigger punch. Even so, it is relegated to use against light/medium armored vehicles and structures as it normally doesn't have the power to kill a tank head on. Nonetheless, it finds extensive use by infantry forces as an anti-personnel, anti-vehicle and anti-fortification weapon.


[b][u]FGM-148 Javelin[/u][/b]
[img]http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120329004206/battlefield/images/6/6a/FGM-148JavelinIRL.jpg[/img]

The FGM-148 Javelin provides deadly and accurate anti-tank fire capable of defeating nearly all armored threats on the modern battlefield. Equipped with a tandem charge warhead it is capable of defeating reactive armor and the system is capable of targeting low flying aircraft. It uses a thermal targeting system in order to allow the missile to track the target on its own making the Javelin a fire and forget weapons system. The missile itself can use a direct attack or top-attack method in order to hit armored vehicles from above where their armor is the weakest.

[b]Information[/b]
Type: Man Portable Surface to Air Missile
Weight: 14.3 kg (32 lb)
Length: 1.52 m
Caliber: Stinger SAM
Muzzle velocity: 750 m/s (1,700 mph)
Maximum range: 8,000 m (26,000 ft)

The AIM-92 Stinger is the Commonwealth military's primary Man Portable SAM and is commonly issued at the company level to provide defense against low flying threats like helicopters or ground attack aircraft. Utilizing infrared seeking technology it is very effective against most low flying aircraft as it doesn't warn the target it's being tracked like a radar guided missile would. While it is an effective air defense system it is doubted that it will be able to remain as effective in the near future as potential enemy aircraft become more and more advanced and a massive upgrade in capabilities or a new system is being looked into.

The M1 Infantry Combat Vehicle is the Commonwealth's newest primary infantry fighting vehicle. Based on the M1 Abrams it provides much superior protection, firepower and mobility compared to the M2 Bradley and M113. The base vehicle has been redesigned moving the engine to the front for both greater armored protection as well as to allow the addition of a rear ramp to permit the rapid entrance or exit of infantry. The turret has been removed and a remote weapons station has been installed that accommodates a 40mm auto-cannon and a pair of two TOW missile tubes mounted on both sides of the station providing a mixed and lethal armament. Hatches have been installed to allow transported infantry to open up and assist in observation and adding to the security of the vehicle. The weight from the removal of the turret has been redistributed as armor all around the vehicle making the M1 ICV possibly more survivable than the actual MBT.

[size="7"][u][b]Air Force[/b][/u][/size]
The American Commonwealth Air Force was initially formed from the various state air national guard units serving as the state's defense forces after the withdrawal of the Empire of Pravus Ingruo. It is now a much larger force that is now responsible for the defense of the American Commonwealth's airspace and it's other interests. The ACAF has a current strength of 720 combat aircraft and 80,000 personnel.

[size="5"][u][b]MISSION[/b][/u][/size]
The American Commonwealth Army serves as the land-based branch of the American Commonwealth Military and is charged with:
[list][*][i]Preserving the peace and security and providing for the defense of the American Commonwealth and all possessions and any areas occupied by the Commonwealth[/i][*][i]Supporting the national policies[/i][*][i]Implementing the national objectives[/i][*][i]Overcoming any nations responsible for aggressive acts that imperil the peace and security of the Commonwealth[/i][/list]

[size="5"][u][b]LEADERSHIP[/b][/u][/size]
Commander in Chief: President David Bronson
Secretary of the Air Force: Martin Tellers
General of the Air Force: General Harper Brown


[size="5"][u][b]HISTORY[/b][/u][/size]
The American Commonwealth Air Force was formed on January 9th 20XX, two days after the formation of the American Commonwealth. When the Empire of Pravus Ingruo withdrew from most of it's American territories they left the local national guard units responsible for maintaining peace and stability and it was from the air national guard units of the states from where the Commonwealth Air Force was first formed. Since then it has grown into a larger, and much more capable, modern air force that is equipped with modern aircraft and capable of conducting the full range of missions required of any air force.


[size="5"][u][b]COMMAND STRUCTURE & ORGANIZATION[/b][/u][/size]
The American Commonwealth Air Force is an all volunteer force mainly composed of active duty personnel with some reserve personnel and equipment providing support. The primary operating area for the Air Force would be the Commonwealth proper and it has been organized to be able to protect the Commonwealth's airspace against any enemies.

[u][b]MAJOR COMMANDS[/b][/u]
The American Commonwealth Air Force is organized into different major commands that are responsible for different duties and missions.

The [b]Air Combat Command[/b] is responsible for the administration and command of all of the air force's operational combat units including all fighters and other tactical combat aircraft.
The [b]Air Training and Readiness Command[/b] is responsible for the training and education of all air force personnel from basic training to their more advanced fields.
The [b]Air Force Strike Command[/b] is responsible for most of the Commonwealth's strategic weapons systems including ICBMs and strategic bomber aircraft.

The F-22 Raptor is the Commonwealth Air Force's primary fighter and air superiority aircraft. It is a fifth generation, single seat air superiority fighter with advanced flight capabilities, avionics and stealth characteristics. Due to these characteristics it has been chosen as the most capable fighter aircraft available to the Commonwealth Air Force. Its advanced stealth capability enables it to approach its targets undetected by enemies allowing it to make the first move. If that fails its excellent flight capabilities and maneuverability ensures it will be a capable dog-fighter. The main downside is the Raptor's fairly lacking air to ground capability which can be partially remedied with the use of numerous SDBs and is offset overall by its superior capabilities and its primary air to air mission.

The F-21 Rapier II is one of the more unique combat aircraft in service with the Commonwealth Air Force. Designed and created in response to the UCNA's commissioning of the XF-108 and YF-12 fighters, the F-21 was created in response as at the time none of the ACAF's aircraft could reach the altitudes these aircraft did placing Commonwealth forces at a disadvantage. The F-21 takes the base XF-108 design and slightly enlarges it to allow for a larger internal weapons bay and two new YJ-120 after-burning turbojet engines providing excellent performance and fuel efficiency. Avionics were also heavily upgraded with the addition of the AN/APG-82 AESA radar and AN/ASQ-28 IFTS, providing excellent tracking capabilities for the Rapier and its new data-link equipment allow for excellent communications and interoperability with other aircraft.

The B-1R Lancer is the Commonwealth Air Forces primary supersonic strategic bomber that is capable of filling a wide array of roles. Originally a strategic bomber the B-1R took the original design and redesigned it with stealth characteristics and a new emphasis on air to air missions. Upgraded with a highly modified version of the AN/APG-77 Radar the B-1R is capable of tracking and engaging over 84 targets at the same time. In its air to air configuration it can carry over 84 long range air to air missiles with target tracking coming from its own or from another aircraft with a data-link and tracking capability. The new design provides a measure of stealth along with a coating of radar absorbent materials (RAM). It's powerplant has been enhanced with four modified Pratt & Whitney F110-PW100 turbofan engines allowing for speeds over mach 2. In spite of the air to air emphasis the B-1R still retains all of its air to ground capabilities with the removal of the rotary launchers used for air to air missiles and the reintroduction of bombing equipment. Another variant, the B-1N, is a navalized variant designed for maritime strike and reconnaissance missions. The design is modular in nature allowing any B-1R to change into a B-1N in less than an hour with the addition of a wide area surface search radar and hard points to carry up to 24 long range supersonic anti-ship missiles.

Navy
The American Commonwealth Navy is the sea based branch of the American Commonwealth and is charged with protecting its shores, maritime interests and to support the other service branches when required.

MISSION
The American Commonwealth Navy serves as the naval based branch of the American Commonwealth Military and is charged with:

  • Preserving the peace and security and providing for the defense of the American Commonwealth and all possessions and any areas occupied by the Commonwealth
  • Supporting the national policies
  • Implementing the national objectives
  • Overcoming any nations responsible for aggressive acts that imperil the peace and security of the Commonwealth

LEADERSHIP
Commander in Chief: President David Bronson
Secretary of the Air Force: Harold Burns
General of the Air Force: Admiral Jacob Ryan


HISTORY
The American Commonwealth Navy was formed on January 9th 20XX, two days after the formation of the American Commonwealth. Unlike the other branches of the military there wasn't a real naval national guard component and so the New York and New Jersey Naval Militias were formed into what would become the American Commonwealth Navy. Originally operating small gunboats and fast attack missile craft the navy has since grown into a blue water capable navy with dozens of ships.

The Bronson class aircraft carrier is the Commonwealth Navy's first aircraft carrier. The Bronson class is a larger aircraft carrier but was not developed into a super-carrier due to budget restrictions and a defensive oriented naval doctrine. One of the main features of the Bronson class is the addition of fairly heavy defensive armament not usually found on an aircraft carrier. Doctrine currently has the carriers operating with a small air group and the Bronson class was designed to be able to defend itself effectively. Nuclear power was chosen as the ships main propulsion system in order to allow for higher speeds and lessen logistics requirements. Typically the carried air group numbers about 36 combat aircraft but it is capable of handling up to 60 combat aircraft effectively along with support and miscellaneous aircraft. Survivability is important and the Bronson class is designed with this in mind and is capable of surviving under the keel and direct torpedo attacks and anti-ship missiles.
