THE CANISSIAN ROYAL ARMY The Canissian Army is dedicated to the defense of the Royal People's Republic of Canissia and to mutual protection of members of the MESS Alliance.

The Active Duty Army is made up of 20 Divisions, which are organized into 4 Corps-level commands. There are 16 Reserve Divisions that also report to organic Corps.

4 Active Divisions are made up of the V CORPS: Légion étrangère (classical Piconese dialect). The V-Corps is the Foreign Legion, and has no Reserve divisions attached to them.

ARMY WEAPONS: Edit

The main rifle issued to the RPRC Army is a modified version of the FN SCAR. The modification in question is, primarily, producing it in 6.8 mm, which is used as the Universal Service Round (smallarms/rifle).

  • Issued SMG: UMP-45 is used.
  • Pistols: Colt .45.
  • Shotgun: Mossberg-590

Man-Portable AntiTank systems:

  • RPG-29 type used for general Infantry squads.
  • FGM-148 Javelin-type for dedicated ATGM Infantry teams.

ARMY UNIFORMS: Edit

Flecktarn

Canissian Flecktarn

  • Camouflage is the faded-edged Flecktarn type design.
  • Helmets: MICH TC-2000 ("New Kevlar") style

Flecktarn camouflage has been determined to be the most efficient camouflage for the Canissian homeland. Canissia is a warm, verdant region where the ability to blend in with the forest is paramount for successful military operations. This has caused problems when units deploy to drier environments, such as Katangwaland or Tian Jiao. Alternate versions of uniforms are being experimented with, such as a faded-color Flecktarn design, a desert version, and other patterns such as "Lizard", in use primarily with the V-Corps Legion commands.

ARMY UTILITY VEHICLE KEY: Edit

  • Light Jeep: Serval Light Infantry Vehicle.
  • Cargo Truck: Mungo ESK

COMBAT VEHICLE KEY: Edit

Canissian combat divisions are broken into four categories:

"Mechanized", which includes heavy, tracked vehicles meant for sustained combat with peer nation forces.

"Motorized", which encompasses mostly wheeled vehicles with medium armor for enhanced mobility and speed, used typically for deployment to regional, limited-conflict hot spots.

"Airborne", which includes a mix of very light wheeled and tracked vehicles designed for rapid deployment to trouble spots.

"Light Infantry", which focuses on very light, soft-skinned wheeled vehicles use to support marching Infantry. "Light Infantry" units are also "Airmobile" qualified, and rely heavily on helicopter transport.

Canissian Army units also have organic Helicopter Brigades attached to them for air support and battlefield transport. Some Divisions even have Army Air Corps

V CORPS: Légion étrangère: Edit

Legion etrangere

The Foreign Legion

The V-Corps command is a new addition to the overall force structure of the Canissian Army. The Foreign Legion, or Légion étrangère as it is known in classical Piconese dialect, is open to foreign recruits who wish to join and serve the Canissian Army. After 6 years of loyal service, these foreign nationals are eligible for Canissian citizenship if they choose.

While the Légion étrangère allows people to enlist under pseudonyms, or "nom d'guerre", they still undergo a quick background check to make sure they are not wanted felons in their home countries. People who serve under pseudonyms cannot qualify for Canissian citizenship; however, at any point a person serving with a good record can "come clean" and serve under their real name in order to qualify.

The Légion étrangère allows for Canissian forces to be stationed overseas for extended periods of time so that domestic political sensitivities are sidestepped, and to avoid the cost of relocating major home commands overseas to meet crises. Canissian regular forces and Reserve forces do, however, deploy overseas to Légion étrangère bases to provide training and support for one another, but the existence of the Légion étrangère in overseas hotspots does allow for Canissian Regulars to remain home and decrease the overseas "footprint". The Legion is intended to be no more than 50% native Canissian personnel at any given time, but foreign national enlistment rates are expected to fluctuate with the state of the world, so this ratio is not set in stone.

Personnel policy of the Legion is to remove recruits from their home continent for their first 4-year period of duty (which includes initial enlistment training) and deploy them to unfamiliar territory so that they develop bonds with the Légion étrangère rather than retain ties to their homeland. So a Katangwan recruit will be sent to Tian Jiao, and a Frequesnean recruit will be sent to Katangwa. The Légion étrangère is expected to grow over time if more foreign base deals are made.
