The Armed Forces of the Catholic Republic of Langenia (WIP)

The Armed Forces of the Catholic Republic of Langenia is the military and pride of the Langenian nation and formerly the military wing of the Republican Party of Langenia (It was detached from the party by Juan Perez as part of military reorganization after the Cold War, but is still supervised by the Central Military Committee of the RPL and remains highly loyal to the RPL). It is an important factor in advancing our foreign policies. It ranks in the top 1% of most powerful militaries (according to NS stats). There are over 2,185,000 active military personnel in the armed forces, as well as an additional 4,500,000 reservists, a total of over 6,685,000 military personnel. In order to reinforce loyalty to Furianism within the armed forces, each Langenian military unit down to the platoon/squadron/warship level are assigned a political commissar. The commissars report to the Armed Forces Political Bureau of the Catholic Republic of Langenia, which is part of the Ministry of National Defense. There are six military branches: the National Army of Langenia, the Langenian Air Force, the Langenian National Navy, the Langenian Marine Corps, the Langenian Missile Force, and the Langenian National Strategic Force. The Supreme Leader/President holds the post of Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Catholic Republic of Langenia, or commander-in-chief of the armed forces. With this post comes the seven-star military ranks of Generalissimo of the Grand Armies of Langenia, Generalissimo of the Air Forces of Langenia, and Grand Admiral of the Fleet's of Langenia. Its headquarters are the General Staff Bureau of the Armed Forces of the Catholic Republic of Langenia, located in the Ministry of National Defense building in Aragon. The military intelligence agency is the Military Intelligence Directorate (MID) of the General Staff Bureau of the Armed Forces of the Catholic Republic of Langenia, which is subordinate to the General Staff Bureau. Its equipment comes from the Soviet Union/Russia, the United States, the Common Territories, Allanea, Marquesan, Etoile Arcture, and Langenia itself. Langenia was partially aligned with the Soviet Union during the Cold War and with its continuance of good relations with Russia, the Soviet Union/Russia sold it large quantities of military hardware and allowed it to tinker with them, giving it domestic production rights and allowing Langenia to make its own version of the equipment. During the thaw in relations with the United States, it also received military equipment from that country. For its many foreign interventions, it negotiated large arms deals with the Common Territories, Etoile Arcture,
Allanea, and Marquesan. Langenia also has an advanced arms manufacturing industry, making domestically designed and produced military hardware. At the start of Nicolas Furia's rule he declared his goal to expand the domestic arms manufacturing industry even more.
