OOC: This is so RP doesn't become excrutiatingly boring and useless, RPing the same country in both CNRP Standard and R. This won't become a habit, and I discourage it becoming a trend.

Standard Infantry Rifles:

The unique conditions of the Burmese landscape and urban jungles have brought about a curious development in the area of the standard infantry rifle. The need for both a powerful, high caliber rifle and the need for an accurate, long range rifle are both present. Therefore, there is a healthy split in the military. On average, half a squad will use M4 Carbines and the other will use AK-103's.

History of the Contemporary Burmese State

Contemporary Burma gained its Independence from the British Raj [and by extension, the British Empire] on January 4, 1948. The state that was established contained all current holdings of modern Burma, and was called the Union of Burma.

During British rule, Burma was the wealthiest province of the Raj, a generous advantage to them being Burmah Oil. The Union of Burma was able to gain control of Burmah Oil after independence and had a bright future. However, widespread corruption gripped the nation as economic laws were too lax, as were immigration and border laws.

With poverty widespread, the entire senior staff of the military conspired against the Union of Burma government and organized a very successful military coup in 1994. The new state that was formed was simply called Burma, with no honorifics or formal names. Once the new Junta established a working government, they quickly organized the signing of new economic and immigration laws that put a strangehold over corruption in the nation.

The new government was able to pull the economy out and re-establish Burmah Oil as a major company. Wealth poured in, and unemployment and poverty levels fell rapidly. Now the nation stands as a fledging and developing country, with much improved technology and infrastructure.
