EquipmentEdit

VehiclesEdit

L9A utility half-track

A small vehicle, designed for towing large guns and heavy equipment. It can also function as an effective earthmover with the addition of a dozer blade.

L13A troop-carrier half-track

Carries nine soldiers in an enclosure in the rear. While not sufficiently armoured to resist anything much more powerful than 7.7×57 Colombian, it provides some protection.

L16A armoured half-track

A more heavily armoured vehicle for transporting small numbers of personnel. These usually mount a medium automatic rifle in the driver's seat or a heavy automatic rifle on a stand in the rear, though the second option is part of an experimental program introduced in 1924 and remains exceedingly rare.

L17A 'Juliana' infantry armoured tractor

Similar to the FT-17.

L21A 'Clarisa' automatic rifle carrier

The L21 chassis is a small, tracked vehicle designed to carry and protect an automatic rifle crew, and enable them to keep up with motorized infantry. The additional power of the engine allows the crew to operate a heavy automatic rifle rather than the medium automatic rifle that dismounted crews are often issued. Similar to the Universal Carrier.

L21B 'Emilia' flamethrower carrier

Since carrying fuel tanks on one's back tends to be something of a liability under fire, Emilia allows flamethrowers to be operated from a protected position at all times.

L21C 'Silvia' mortar carrier

Silvia carries a mortar crew and an 80L15 mortar.

L27A 'Luciana' heavy armoured tractor

Similar to the Vickers Independent A1E1 tank.

XL35A 'Roxana' cruiser armoured tractor

An experimental vehicle that has not yet entered production. Details of its design are highly secret.

Coastal Fortress Artillery BattalionEdit

The coastal fortress artillery battalion contains half of the weapons emplaced at a coastal fortress, including a first battery of two (2) 3-gun turrets mounting 450L50P1350A1920 breech-loading guns, a second battery of four (4) 2-gun turrets mounting 350L45P600A1920 breech-loading guns, a third battery of eighteen (18) 80L60P8A1920 anti-aircraft gun emplacements, and a weapons company controlling eighteen (18) 3-gun casemates, each containing three 14.5L80A1918 heavy automatic rifles and an eleven-man rifle squad armed with G7A assault carbines.

The artillery brigades stationed at Fuerte Panama and Fuerte Sherman had not yet recieved their full complement of emplacements at the time of the Panaman War and operated only a single battalion for the duration of the conflict.

Active UnitsEdit

977th ArmyEdit

  • Operates throughout Gran Colombia.

  • 9 Ranger brigades.
  • Trinidadian Auxiliary Brigade (A977-9R-6TA).

PenonomeEdit

A977-91-62 Ranger brigade was present during the 1925 invasion of Panama by the Mexican Empire, and was tasked with slowing the progress of the advancing Mexican forces by setting up concrete barriers at Penenome. However, they were forced to retreat pre-maturely on August 7th.

Battle of YavizaEdit

On August 10th, 1925, elements of the 670th Army were scheduled to be moved into Panama via the Trans-Gran Colombian Railway, until Mexican Rangers destroyed a bridge at Yaviza after conducting a miraculously successful amphibious landing at Las Palmas and traversing a heavily mined river. Using the second TGCR line, two divisions de-trained at Meteti on the 12th, and moved against the Rangers, still holed up in the city, while the infantry brigades from two other divisions crossed the river with bridging equipment. The Mexicans were forced to flee to their barges and retreat downriver to Las Palmas, where they were intercepted by a flotilla of Valiente-class monitors.

ReservesEdit

4.8 million troops, or about 320 additional Divisions, distributed amongst four additional Fronts, essentially quadrupling current deployments.
