[OOC] The UYDF and you - a primer for F7 (V2.0, now with fancier livery!)

So. Military factbooks.

I have quite a few of them.

They're pretty diverse in contents, and are often organized in a... questionable manner.

If you're just some F7er looking for information on my military, this might be a bit of an issue.

So I made another one, to act as a sort of guide. This one, to be precise.

Some of you might remember my earlier attempt at this sort of thing - try not to.

It was bland, badly formatted, and outdated within about a week of me writing it up.

This is take two. The concept is simple - just try to find a band that describes your nation best, and have a look at the links provided.

Do note that this is only meant to provide some rough guidelines - it's no bible.

Ah [excrement], here we go again
