Cossack Military



.



The Federal Republic of Cossack Peoples, while formed in only in 1989, maintains a large and well-regulated military. The militaristic tradition spawns from Cossack society as a whole; back to the time when Cossacks roamed the steppes in their hosts, beating back invaders of them or their allies. Modern Cossack military is less prone to reenact the strategies of past Cossacks, however, and under the Department of War, the entire military structure directed into four major branches; The Cossack Army (CPA, FRCPA, Conscripts), The Cossack Navy (CPN, FRCPN), the Cossack Air Force (FRCPAF, CPAF), and the Cossack Naval Infantry (FRCPNI, CPNI).

Cossack Army


Emblem of the Cossack Peoples' Army


Founded:

1989

Type:

Army

Part of:

Department of War

HQ:

New Krasnoyarsk Capital Complex, New Krasnoyarsk

Motto:

"Іти без страху в будь-який куточок землі"

The Cossack Army, reorganized from mobs of Cossack cavalry and rifle-bearing warriors into a pristine and well-kept military force to be reckoned with still bears some resemblance with its former self. Originally, all of Cossack society had been organized under regimental, and more specifically village posts, called polky/sotni. However, the Cossacks have chosen to discard the outdated practices in order to advance on par with our neighbors and rivals. Instead, ranks, organizations, and civilization have rapidly advanced to the point of adopting many modern ranks, organizations, and proper infrastructure.

Most Cossack strategy revolves around the Plastun, a relatively small and adaptable unit equivalent to a company. The Plastuns make up the larger organizations that are seen on the map and are thus interchangeable between Divisions, Battalions, or Field Armies. For example, a reconnaissance plastun would not only be made up of several rifle or motorized menshyy plastuns, but also have one of the seven set aside for logistical and command. Together, many plastuns make up a formidable fighting force.

Field Army Formations;districts of recruitment

The Cossack Army, under the Department of War, maintains a mission at which it will fulfill no matter the cost:
  • Refinement of military doctrine

  • Development and application of technology into any ground-related military activities

  • Protection of Cossack citizens, infrastructure, territories, and claims from foreign interference and invasion

  • Maintaining of military infrastructure, supplies, and equipment.

  • The betterment of training and organization of the Cossack Army.

Equipment
The Cossack Army uses a narrow but adaptable spread of equipment and vehicles to keep costs down on the already massive military budget.

Although the Cossack Peoples' Navy and Air Force are as modern and sophisticated as can be, the Army and it's colleague branch of the Naval Infantry still cling onto ceremonial and traditional decorum. The Papakha was discarded for its high silhouette and replaced with the helm and bright colors that were the pride of entire hosts were replaced with environment-oriented camouflage, but through it all the Federal Republic still rewards some of its officers with the privilege of sporting some of the most legendary weapons in Cossack culture.
Vyazma 1881 "Dragoon" Revolver

The revolver may be outdated, but its presence in the holster of a decorated officer cannot be denied. It fires an 11.43x26.2mm round out of a six bullet cylinder and is usually left with a polished oak and steel exterior.
Standard Cossack Shashka

Swords are almost wholly outdated in any practical military combat, we cannot deny that fact, but just because indoor heating exists doesn't mean we can just completely discard clothes. With a polished pine handle, the steel sword made in the traditional specifications of our ancestors on the Circassian Steppes is 95 centimeters in length, from carved and garish hilt to curved and bright tip. There is no handguard, as to reduce the aerodynamics of the blade cutting through the air.

The Пальто is an infantry combat system, integrating high-quality bullet-resistant uniform, communication technology for squad coordination and radio connection, combat aids (night vision, flashlights, monoculars), as well as a wide array of required gear. It has been made a priority to equip much of the infantry and mechanized forces with this gear.
Standard Equipment

9CP155: Primary body armor system for infantry units
9CP156: Plate carrier style armor system for light-weight units
9CP157: Primary body armor system for tank and AFV crews, lighter weight and more maneuverable.
9CP158: Aramid fiber helmet system rated for small arms fire. Includes two covers that allow the helmet to be jumpable, one white and one in the standard EMR (Digital Flora) pattern.
9CP162: Load bearing equipment with a variety of utility and magazine pouches to suit the various weapons of the Cossack Military, includes a 7-litre 'butt pack' and 25-litre patrol backpack.
9CP163: 60-litre backpack designed for carrying large equipment and for long deployments.
18CPF89: Active hearing protection with radio cable.

The KNP-9 is a Cossack-made, high-capacity, double-action, and short-recoil semi-automatic pistol. The barrel/slide locking is commonplace and not unique to its design, although the safety is conveniently ambidextrous, as is the slide stop lever after repositioning it. The hammer is partially concealed at the sides to prevent it being caught on clothing and equipment. The magazine release catch is located in the base of the trigger guard on the left side, where it can be manipulated with the thumb (right-handed users) or index or middle finger (left-handed users). The front sight is formed as a fixed part of the slide and is non-adjustable. The back sight is drift adjustable for windage (dovetail type), but this requires a tool. Both feature white contrast elements to ease aiming in low-light conditions. It uses magazines with an 18-round capacity fed from a double-column, two position feed magazine.

The grips are made from polymer, but most of the weapon is made from metal, giving it a heftier weight than most pistols. However, it is also capable of using semi-armor piercing bullets with tempered steel cores, allowing the pistol to have some armor penetration.

The OOK-88 (Особистий оборонний карабін) is a personal defense weapon designed by WURCo., intended to be used by armored and logistical troops. It has a lightweight polymer frame, short barrel length, a removable suppressor, and a rate of fire of ~890 RPM with 5.8x21mm subsonic rounds. Magazines are usually in a 50-round detachable box, inserted in an ejection port located shortly behind the trigger. It uses blowback to quickly and efficiently load new rounds.

With the suppressor, the muzzle velocity is reduced to 150 m/s (approximately 50 meters of effective firing range), which although sufficient for when a silent weapon is called for, it may be a hindrance when performance is needed. Thus, the silencer is able to be removed, allowing it to perform up to 321 m/s (increased up to 107 meters of firing range).

A gas-operated assault rifle that typically uses a 40 round casket box magazine; official service rifle of FRCP conscripts. It sports a rate of fire of ~600 RPM and a durable and reliable platform which uses plastics in some places to keep the weight down, available as both a rifle and a carbine (See CN-19a). It fires a distinctive 7.42x40 round.

The CN-19 has a very customizable frame so that suppressors, bayonets, extended magazines, sights, and other tactical gear may be attached per the user's needs.
For light infantry squads, machine guns may not be portable enough for their operations, so the CN-19 may be equipped with larger 80-round magazines to supplement the firepower lost with the machine gun. Bayonets are commonly used during training and close quarters combat.

The ETH-92 (Ебать ти гвинтівку) is a WURCo.-made and designated marksmen rifle for the CPA. It chambers 7.88x52mm through a 20 round box magazine, which is fired through a gas-operated tilting breechblock action. With an effective firing range of 600 meters, it can be found within most squads.
The CMG-17 is a light machine gun chambered with 7.42x40 rounds. It is a gas-operated rotating bolt action that can reliably sustain 850-1050 RPM for up to effective firing ranges of 300-1000 meters. Typically the box that stores the belt, attached to the underside of the gun, carries 125 rounds with self-disintegrating links.

The CMG-17 is readily deployed within fireteams more commonly than their larger relative.

The CMG-28 fires a 12.7 mm round via a belt-fed system at a high rate of fire. As a general-purpose machine gun, it can be found in infantry squads, attached to gun positions on naval vessels, as well as a point-defense measure on vehicles. At its peak performance, the machine gun can reach up to 850-950 RPM, with an effective firing range of up to 1,100 meters. The belts typically have self-disintegrating links for efficiency.

For infantry models, the ammunition belts usually total a neat 150 rounds each, although 200 round belts are also used to a lesser extent.

Designed by prominent WURCo. weapon designer, David Kirilov, in 1998 on part of one of many contracts. A heavy machine gun, typically attached to vehicles. It fires belt-fed 20mm (20x102) round shells.

The KPUPO-4 is a man-portable, lightweight, shoulder-fired, surface-to-air missile (or MANPADS) system. It is designed to target aircraft at low altitudes with an imaging infrared seeker to deliver a high-explosive warhead. It is rated for up to 5 uses, which between uses it is reloaded at plastun depots, and is generally not suitable for close-quarters combat or many circumstances far from supply depots or supply lines.

Initial problems were that it was only able to engage low-flying, slow-moving targets, but it was quickly ironed out with better guidance systems in the missile.

The infrared guidance system has an extremely narrow field of view, providing protection against flares and countermeasures, but the inability to adapt to rapid changes in speed. To this end, the infrared system utilizes a focal plane array to produce an image of the target's infrared signature and differentiate the target from countermeasures.

To engage a target, the operator would track the target aircraft with the iron sights, pull the “half-trigger” to allow the missile to begin tracking, then once the missile has adequately locked on, the trigger can be fully pulled and the missile will launch. Reaction time listed by WURCo., from the visual acquisition of target to launch with covers, is thirteen seconds. That time can be reduced to six seconds when the launcher is prepared prior to the engagement.

The Kozatsʹkyy Protytankovyy Hranatomet, or the Cossack Anti-Tank Grenade Launcher, is a man-portable, reusable, unguided, shoulder-launched, anti-tank rocket-propelled grenade launcher. Originally the sole squad-based anti-tank implement for the Cossack Peoples’ Army, it was rushed into domestic production to fill in the anti-tank gap that the army suffered.

Although low-cost and easy-to-use, its effectiveness is somewhat limited by the fickle nature of the gun, which performs poorly and inaccurately when wet or plagued by sand or dirt. As such, constant maintenance is required to keep the device in a workable condition. This is largely due to the very few prototypes and short development time put into the project. Another setback is its pernicious relation with crosswinds. Crosswinds will exert force on the stabilizing fins of the projectile, causing it to curve towards the wind (Weathervane Effect). However, this only becomes intolerable at longer engagement distances than recommended.

The launcher has an accurate range of 50 meters, while it decreases by 4% at 100 meters, and exponentially decreases at hundreds of meters after that. Beyond 180 meters, the user cannot expect to get a first-round hit more than half the time. The backblast is at a maximum of two meters, allowing it to be used in fortifications or indoors provided that the space requirement is fulfilled. It has fallback iron sights, supplemented by night vision sights and passive infrared sights.

Ammunition includes HEAT warheads effective against most fortified targets and vehicles, thermobaric warheads for urban warfare, and tandem HEAT warheads for defeating explosive reactive armor on main battle tanks.

Warheads

Single HEAT (pen. >500mm RHA)
Tandem Charge HEAT (pen. >725mm RHA (w/ ERA))
Thermobaric (lethal radius of 11 meters)

The WK-23 is a man-portable SACLOS (semi-automatic command to line of sight) anti-tank guided missile system with tandem charges intended to be used alongside infantry in the Cossack Peoples' Army. Variants include thermobaric rockets for use against softer targets. It is a reliable laser-beam guided missile system, meant for use against main battle tanks with its tandem-charge rocket; the first charge would disable ERA or other countermeasures, the second the hull. Typically deployed in a tripod.

Variants include vehicle mounted dispensers; used in the Suvorov IFV.

Warheads/Capabilities

WK-23-H: 152mm tandem HEAT (1,000-1,200mm pen. RHA after ERA, range 100-5,500 meters)
WK-23-I: 152mm tandem HEAT (1,100-1,300mm pen. RHA after ERA, range 150-8,300 meters)
WK-23-J: Thermobaric, 10 kg TNT equivalent (range 150-8,000 meters)

The “Dragon” is an 80mm smoothbore infantry mortar used by the Cossack Army. In Light Infantry, it is usually dismantled into its three components for transport; the barrel, bipod, and baseplate. Because of its smoothbore design, the mortar can sustain up to 12 rounds per minute, be it high explosive, illumination, or smoke shells. It has a maximum firing range of 6,015 meters.
Shells

High Explosive, fin stabilized (range: 6,015)
Illumination (90-second burn time)
Smoke, white phosphorus (range: 5,802)

The “Baba Yaga” 120mm mortar is a rifled, muzzle-loading heavy mortar used by the Cossack Army. Typically stored aboard the Menshyy Plastun’s transport vehicles (e.g. LAZP-53/WC-250) in a broken down state alongside its 120mm ammunition, including 14.6 kg high explosive, 12.3 kg high explosive, and illumination.
Due to the force of the launch of the projectile, the mortar has a minimum firing range of 500 meters, not suiting it for directly front line combat, but has an impressive range of 7,100 meters (12.3 kg High Explosive).
Shells

14.6 kg HE (range: 6,930 meters)
12.3 kg HE (range: 7,100 meters)
Illumination (burn time: 90 seconds)

An offroad military light utility vehicle manufactured by WURCo., the LAZP-53 has been adopted by the Cossack Peoples’ Army and the Cossack Naval Infantry as a small personnel transport. The WAV-5 can carry two of these as opposed to a singular WC-250, and has sufficient horsepower to tow a 150mm howitzer (although with some difficulty) alongside its larger companion, the WC-250. These feats are intentional, as the designers in WURCo. were specifically tasked for complying to the needs of both the Army and Naval Infantry. It also has found use in the police and the Cossack Border Patrol.

The body style of a 4-door SUV, it can fit up to 7 passengers; two in the front, three in the back, and two sitting on the tight space of the trunk. The 71.1 horsepower engine drives a five-speed transmission to a maximum road speed of 100 kilometers an hour with a surprising fuel efficiency.

The WC-250 is a four-wheeled military utility truck used by the CPA for use as a cargo truck, with a secondary-road payload capacity of 13.6 metric tons. Its top speed is 105 km/h, terrain willing, performed by a diesel six-cylinder engine.
Designed by Ilyich Makovsky, the WC-250 was purpose-built to be an adaptable logistical and tactical vehicle, whether it be up-armored on the field and carry troops or supply the effort with a tough canopy and clean storage of munitions. Numerous official variations exist, with countless more improvised field variations in existence.

  • WC-252: Wider bed, heavy cargo variation

  • WC-253: Bed replaced, dump truck variation

  • WC-256: Tractor/Tug variant

The Suvorov IFV was an attempt to better diversify the spread of vehicles the FRCP could employ; and with this configurable vehicle, it certainly performed that feat at the very least. The Suvorov is a mixed IFV with some troop transport capabilities, being able to balance infantry supporting fire from its turret-based autocannon with a troop storage space of four.

After years of testing and development, the prototype dubbed the "Voroshilov Device" was unveiled in 2014 to the Department of War for application in heavy infantry brigades as an anti-armor/fortification/personnel. Although initially laughed at for its absurdity, its design has been streamlined through committees into a more practical design.
The device is a man-portable field application of thermite, resembling a conventional flamethrower, that projects an ignited stream of a thermite-napalm mixture (along with a considerable amount of Chemical B, a classified substance) that allows for the melting and burning of targeted materials. Suggested targets and the uses from its designer, their name kept anonymous, were as follows: Fortifications, structures, armored vehicles, CQC infantry, agricultural products, general infrastructure, dense vegetation, wildlife, drywall, food preparation, disease control, sabotage of military equipment, welding, lighting cigarettes, burning of fossil fuels, destruction of incriminating evidence sensitive documents, civilians combatants, everlasting Olympic torch, a campfire for the boys to gather yonder, emergency censorship, breaching, collateral damage, popcorn, burial, crowd control, critiquing artwork, easing demonic possession, general-purpose anesthesia, area denial, and air freshener.

However, most of these uses have been narrowed down by the Department of War for close-quarters combat, demolition, and the damaging and disabling of combat vehicles.

To account for the heat of the projectile and the lighter to start the fire, the device is made of a tantalum-carbide alloy.

It is currently being deployed within select Naval Infantry and Army Plastuns.

The WURCo. Type 9 Howitzer is another glorious invention produced by the all-father, WURCo. the Department of War used primarily by Artillery Plastuns of the Cossack People's Army. It has a 150mm gun, coincidentally the same caliber of gun as the Lepanto-Class Main Battle Tank. (It has been known by select military officials, however, that tankers prank artillerymen during training by switching artillery and tank shells. Most cases have ended all right.) It weighs about 5,600-5,800 kilograms depending on whether it's traveling or combat-ready. As for recoil, suck it up, you тупая шлюха, so what if your fingers were crushed? You should've fought the recoil like a man it uses a hydro-pneumatic system to reduce the recoil and increase the accuracy of the gun. It has a maximum firing range of approximately 14,600 meters.

The WURCo. Type 13 is a 150mm self-propelled artillery gun. The howitzer has a range of either 14.6 kilometers with base-bleed, but up to 18 kilometers with rocket-assisted shells. Its weapons traverse is 360 degrees, and attached to the commander's hatch is a CMG-28 machine gun for anti-personnel purposes.



Cossack Navy

Emblem of the Cossack Peoples' Navy


Founded:

1993

Type:

Navy

Part of:

Department of War

HQ:

Korf

Motto:

"Ми можемо зараз плавати"


The Cossack Navy has traditionally been meager not by want but by circumstance. At its formation in 1989, the CPN had access to several dozen merchant vessels, countless fishing trawlers, three hand-me-down destroyers, and a burgeoning fleet of corvettes. However, great lengths have been taken since then to secure lend-lease vessels for modeling and use for its own navy.

Its mission statements are as follows:

  • Development and refinement of Cossack naval doctrine and tactics

  • Research, development, and effective application of new technologies and designs into the navy, to a reasonable extent

  • Maintaining and protection of naval infrastructure and territorial waters of the FRCP

  • Recruitment and maintaining its own sailors

  • Naval action, such as blockades, escorts, and combat

Vessels

The Starosta-Class is a patrol boat meant for coastal and littoral operations, mainly involving border protection, patrols, and interception of unauthorized arrivals by sea. With a baseline crew of 14 and a Naval Infantry complement of 7 (with a maximum of 150 personnel aboard), the vessel has an endurance of a maximum of 42 days. The diesel engine drives the twin propellers on the stern of the vessel to speeds up to 29 knots, giving the patrol boat ample speed to intercept threats to border security. The ship also is equipped with a WURCo. electro-optical detection system for potential threat detection.

As for armament, the vessel is assigned two rigid inflatable boats for boarding with the Naval Infantry complement, as well as two swivel-mounted CMG-28 12.7mm machine guns and a primary armament of a David Kirilov stabilized gun mount with a 20mm DKh-63 autocannon.

Specifications

1 x Dkh-63 autocannon on David Kirilov Stabilized Gun Mount
2 x CMG-28 12.7mm machine guns
2 x RHIBs
The Bohynya Polyuvannya-class of minehunters is the sole mine countermeasures vessel/minelayer in service with the Cossack Navy. The Bohynya Polyuvannya-Class combines sonar sweeps and diver teams to detect and defuse naval mines. The hull is made of wood coated in fiberglass, to maintain lightness, strength, and a low magnetic signature to avoid premature detonation or activation of the mine. From there, a team of divers would be dispatched to defuse the bomb. Alternatively, the craft’s deck can be laden with mines for the deployment of naval mines.

The inefficient diesel engine barely manages 12 knots, but commonly is pushed to a slow gait of 6 knots for effective minesweeping/minelaying.

Armament

Although built off of an outdated lend-lease submarine (The Akula-Class) the Lobanov has little left of its original vessel apart from the distinctive look when surfaced. It has four torpedo tubes and four VLS tubes capable of firing Anti-ship and anti-air missiles, as well a variety of electronic warfare methods and decoys, even a VLF radio for communication at low depths.

Specifications

4 x 533mm Torpedo tubes; storage of 40 torpedoes. Can fire Primakov-V anti-ship missiles (Fired through torpedo tube, rises to surface; range of 50 km, initially inertial guidance, terminal active radar homing). Tubes can also deploy mines.
4 x VLS cells, armed with Primakov-VII missiles (Anti-ship cruise missile, initially inertial guidance, terminal active radar homing, range of 660 km, top speeds of Mach 2.6), stowage of 12 missiles

The Fyodor Sergeyev-Class is a guided missile nuclear submarine planned to enter service of the Cossack Navy. While the Yakov-Class ballistic missile submarine was a stopgap measure, it transitioned more into a ballistic missile submarine while the Fyodor Sergeyev will take on the anti-ship role. Smaller than the Yakov-Class, it focuses on stealth and deploying surface payloads delivered from their numerous vertical launch systems located behind the sail. Its hull, like the Yakov, is coated with anechoic tiles, reducing sonar return and reducing audible sounds from within. The Fyodor Sergeyev-Class will have two pressurized water-cooled nuclear reactors that drive a two-shaft propulsion system. It will be propelled by one seven-bladed propeller assisted by two retractable propulsors for quiet maneuvering.

Its sensor complement includes a bow-mounted passive sonar array, with three similar hydrophones mounted on the each lateral side of the craft for better targeting with torpedoes. Decoys include the Gówno Plama noise simulation towed decoy, which imitates the signature of the submarine. It also features a towed passive sonar array, to make up for its blind spots. The Fyodor Sergeyev-Class will also have, for the first time in a Cossack submarine, an electronic warfare suite to automatically intercept and classify potentially hostile enemy communication and radar signals at periscope depth.

The armament of the submarine sports twenty-four vertical launch tubes, reloaded by WCLS-98 missile reloaders. Missile armaments include Primakov-III anti-air missiles and primarily Primakov-VII and Primakov-VIII long-range anti-ship cruise missiles. Its four 533mm torpedo tubes fire wake-homing or active sonar torpedoes, as well as the Primakov-V short-range anti-ship missile.

With the two-shaft system, it reaches 15 knots surfaced and 25 knots submerged. When relying on the propulsors for stealth, it can only reach up to 5 knots.

Specifications

4 x 533mm torpedo tubes (30 wake-homing/active sonar guided torpedoes, range 22km)
10 x Primakov-V short-range anti-ship missiles (fired through torpedo tube, range of 50 km, initially inertial guidance, terminal active radar homing)

The Kirilov Point-Defense System is a jamming-resistant naval cruise missile and aircraft defense system designed by David Kirilov, a WURCo. weapons designer. The system integrates a separate phased radar array to acquire targets, namely sea-skimming anti-ship missiles or enemy aircraft. It then dispatches the targets with light air-to-air missiles or dual auto-cannons based in a turret taken from a 5P103 "Urs Negru" anti-aircraft SAM system. The effective interception range is 20 kilometers with missiles.
It can detect and hit sea-skimming targets flying as low as one or two meters off the surface.

Equipped with state-of-the-art designs and technology, the Miś is designed to be a ubiquitous vessel, able to do naval reconnaissance, detect incoming aircraft and missiles, and support naval shipping with enough firepower to fend off pirates that are more better off than most.
It typically carries one automatic deck gun, a pulse radar system, two torpedo firing mounts, two CIWS/Missile Systems on deck, a sonar system built into the bow, and a streamlined approach to radio and electronic warfare in the bridge.

Another design from David Kirilov, it features a more lightweight frame and larger bullet size than the DKh-63 at the expense of the fire rate. Designed recently in 2017, it is intended on usage for the first generation of Cossack fighter aircraft with 32.33x170mm revolver cannon-operated autocannon.

The PkV-16 is a multirole, two-seated, all-weather, twin-engined fighter aircraft with limited stealth capabilities commissioned by WURCo. and designed by Marina Primakov in 2020. The fighter's original design was made off of influences of foreign jets and the observations made with the experimental WC-2 interceptor aircraft. As the interceptor role was deemed obsolete, the design was refocused into a more balanced mix of specialties in air superiority and ground support operations.
It boasts an internally mounted DKhA-42 autocannon and internal weapon bays can support one larger missile or 6 standard ATA or ATS missiles.

It's stealth capabilities allow for 0.1 to 1 square meter of radar-cross-section, with most of its reduced radar-cross-section emphasized on forward-facing capabilities.

The PkV-16N, a naval variant, was created to accommodate the slingshot and payload associated with smaller aircraft carriers.

Armament

DKhA-42 Autocannon
12 RPPSD-13 Medium-range air-to-air Missiles (infrared or radar-homing)/RZZ-59 Air-to-Ground Missile/RVDRU-1 Anti-Radiation Missiles
Top speed of Mach 2.4
Radar Cross section of 0.5 square meters

Product of a well-funded development program and extensive testing, the VI-92 is an attack helicopter utilized by both the CPA, CPNI, and CPAF. It uses two top-mounted turboshaft engines with a 17.3 m five-blade main rotor, with a shorter three-blade tail rotor. Its armament from mission to mission varies from an aerial support role, anti-tank operations, or aerial combat.
It boasts a heavily armored fuselage able to withstand high-caliber round impacts, as well as the blades and windscreens.

Naval variants have been created of the VI-92, sometimes referred to by as the VI-93, for naval reconnaissance and anti-submarine warfare. Payload differs more towards torpedoes, depth charges, with some maneuverability and troop capacity of the craft sacrificed for the attachment of a magnetic anomaly detector (effective range of 500 meters) and more advanced radar.

Armament

2 x Gimballed Nose-mounted DKha autocannon
8 x payload racks (Capable of carrying PBTR-4 thermobaric rockets, additional autocannons, RPPSD-13 Medium-range air-to-air Missiles (infrared or radar-homing) for self-defense, unguided rocket pods)
Approximate troop capacity of 7 (harms mobility and is distraction to crew)

A utility helicopter built with the systems of the VI-92, it is used by the Cossack Army and Airforce equally as a troop transport, reconnaissance platform, and, in a limited degree, armed gunship. Civil models of this craft have been used by emergency services for medical evacuations, as well as conjunction with police forces for manhunts and missing person cases.

Manned by three crew (two pilots, one engineer), it can ferry 14 troops / 7 stretchers / 4,000 kg (8,818 lb) cargo internally / 5,000 kg (11,023 lb) externally slung.

Armed variants typically include a door gunner (typically outfitted with a CMG-28) or an anti-tank missile payload (RZZ-59 Air-to-Ground Missile).

Designed by Vikentiy Ilyich, a WURCo. rotary-wing aircraft designer, the VI-20 is a medium-lift transport helicopter used by the Cossack Air Force to transport supplies and sometimes small vehicles, as well as an infantry detachment as large as two squads (28 troops).
The helicopter supports two turboshaft engines for its rotors, which have a diameter of 21.25 meters. This setup allows for a top speed of 280 km/h with cruise speeds at 260 km/h. The VI-20’s range, without additional fuel tanks, is 800 kilometers, allowing it to operate very far from airbases and landing helicopter docks.

Specifications

Troop capacity of 28
Range of 800 km 
Flares

The VI-32, designed by Vikentiy Ilyich, is a heavy-lift transport helicopter operated by the Cossack Air Force. While numbers on other military equipment of the FRCP are based on serial organization, the VI-32 is merely the number of the design as opposed to previous prototypes. The development of the VI-32 was slow and arduous, with most of the complications being in providing enough power to have the empty weight be less than a quarter of the maximum takeoff weight. This way, it can ferry a menshyy plastun of soldiers (54 troops) in gear and with full unit equipment, or even an armored personnel carrier or the MK-92 amphibious armored fighting vehicle.

It is the first Cossack aircraft to use a single eight-blade main lift rotor, which can still operate with the loss of one of the two turboshaft engines.

The VI-32 has a maximum takeoff weight of 56,000 kg. It is 40 meters long and 8 meters tall, with a main rotor diameter of 32 meters. It’s five crew members; two pilots, a navigator, a flight engineer, and a flight technician, operate the craft and make repairs while in the field.

Specifications

Top speed of 295 km/h
Range of 800 km/h, ferry range of 1,920 kilometers with auxiliary fuel tanks
Crew of 5, maximum occupancy of 90 or one menshyy plastun with light supporting vehicles (i.e. trucks, utility vehicles)
Capable of carrying slung ground vehicles, artillery, etc.
Flares, infrared countermeasures

The HV-9 is a heavy-lift transport, able to lift most vehicles the Cossack Army employs; with the exception being the Lepanto Main Battle Tank.

Major problems have been seen with this design, such as the single crewmember, lack of fail-safes, and overpowered engines for the sake of weight efficiency.

The PkV-43A is a variant of various outdated aircraft the CPAF has in stock, as to reduce costs for a new design and frame. The PkV-43A is a strike fighter, built off the frame of a MiG-31 interceptor. It has a top speed of around Mach 2.4, with cruising speeds being around Mach 2. It is a two-seated, twin-engined strike fighter with a range of around 1,620 kilometers, allowing it wide reach from a military base or airfield. The PkV-43a was modified so that it may support 8 underwing pylon hardpoints, allowing it a range of ATA missiles for self-defense or a purely AGM payload. Due to weight, even fuel drop tanks must be unequipped if an NZ-21 hypersonic air-launched ballistic missile is to be carried.

The ItP-XX program is an air superiority fighter under development by WURCo. via cooperation between notable aircraft designers Vikentiy Ilyich and Marina Primakov. After the lackluster performance of the PkV-16 at destroying more advanced fighter aircraft, the deficiencies in Cossack aerial design were noted and the solutions proposed to be established in this new craft.

For propulsion, it will use an afterburning turboramjet engine to achieve a cruising speed of Mach 3.2 and a top speed of 4.6, negating its stealth for maximum speed. It is of present concern with the turboramjet design that the fighter will be unwieldy at low speeds, but it has been quickly dismissed as the purpose of the fighter is to match speeds and pursue fast aircraft and dogfighting is a thing of the past.

The design is centered around aerodynamics to achieve high speeds and that is only helped by the airframe being designed by a radar cross-section software at the New Krasnoyarsk Institute of Technology. While the propulsion system makes stealth infeasible, the reduced radar cross section makes it so that radar-homing missiles will encounter more difficulty in acquiring their target.

The fighter has a range of 3,012 kilometers and a service ceiling predicted into near-space, or the mesosphere.

Armament will notably exclude any form of autocannon, instead relying on air-to-air missiles to eliminate enemy craft. It will have 10 external pylons to support medium or medium-to-long-range missiles, and interior bays can support two long-range missiles. Countermeasures for the craft are still in dispute; Directional Infrared Counter Measures may be installed when they are developed and those may be used in conjunction with especially bright flares, also yet to be developed.

Avionics include full spherical infrared coverage for missiles, an all-round radar-warning receiver (which has more range than the actual radar), a multifunction low probability of intercept radar (the emissions of which can be focused to overwhelm enemy sensors), and a system that could fuse different systems to help the pilot achieve increased situational awareness.

The craft has minimal life support systems, to the point that it is predicted that the pilot will have to wear specialized garments to stay warm and personal equipment to maintain breathing.

Armament

12 missile pylons; can use RPPSD-13 Medium-range air-to-air Missiles (infrared or radar-homing), RPPSDD-63 Medium-to-long range air-to-air missiles (infrared or radar-homing)

The Primakov Pr-33 is a mid-sized high-speed tactical airlift cargo aicraft manufactured by the Maksima Design Bureau of WURCo. for the Cossack Armed Forces. It was designed with the stipulation to be able to carry up to 36 tons to distances from at least up to 7,600 kilometers (approximately the distance between the FRCP and Glorious Society, or allows for a chain flight from the FRCP to Atlas orbis and then to Dernel).

With two turbofan engines, it can reach 920 km/h (Mach 0.88) with a cruise speed of 890 km/h (Mach 0.8). In total, it has a ferry range of 9,800 kilometers. Wingspan is 44.4 meters, which helps keep the craft steady and in the air. In the spacious cargo area, it can carry nearly two menshyy plastuns of infantry, with an IFV, APC, or two light utility vehicles. Or, it can carry eight 463 liter pallets for airdrops, or even one VI-92 assault helicopter.

The Pr-33 can operate on short or unprepared runways; something that their larger relative, the Pr-37, cannot do.

The Primakov Pr-37 “дрізд” is a strategic airlift cargo aircraft manufactured by the Maksima Design Bureau of WURCo. for the Cossack Armed Forces. It is powered by six turbofan engines and is the heaviest aircraft in the FRCP. It has a maximum takeoff weight of 620,000 kilograms (620 metric tons), allowing for up to 227,000 (227 metric tons) kilograms of cargo to be airlifted. Because of its immense cost of production and merely maintaining it, the Pr-37 is expected to be produced only in small amounts.

The PDKIK-95 is a dedicated radar picket jet for Airborne Early Warning and Control. It features an Active Phased Array Radar, which can track numerous land-based and aerial targets simultaneously and acts like a Combat Information Center would in a warship but in the sky.

It is propelled by four turbofan engines for up to maximum speeds of up to 900 km/h. The radar systems can detect fast moving aerial targets from up to 595 kilometers away and warships from up to 402 kilometers away. The main radar array, located in the nose, utilizes an electronically steered radar that rotates once every five seconds, improving the radar’s ability to track fast-moving targets.

The Solomin ICBM, developed by Vadim Solomin, is a cold-launched, three-stage, solid-propellant, silo-based or road-mobile intercontinental ballistic missile. The mass at launch is 47,200 kg, including the 1,200 kg payload. Typically, the Solomin carries a single thermonuclear warhead with an 1 Mt yield but the design is compatible with MIRV warheads.

Various silos and TEL are throughout the FRCP, in order to properly distribute hellfire should they themselves be obliterated.

It has a maximum effective range of ~11,000 km, with a remarkable CEP of around 520 meters.

The WR-C0 TEL is a vehicle built entirely to move and fire the Solomin ICBM. The ICBM itself can carry up to five low yield nuclear warheads, or otherwise a single megaton warhead.

The Precision Assault Launcher (or the Tochnyy Shturmovyy Pusk) is a ballistic missile platform meant for delivering conventional, chemical, or small-scale nuclear payloads over long distances. For a conventional, single-stage missile, the CEP can get as close to 35 meters with both inertial and terminal guidance systems. With the range of the latest model, the TSP-4, it can reach land and sea-based targets reliably up to 800 kilometers.

A recent project of WURCo., it is focused on revolutionizing the launching systems to be better equipped to handle space-based or long-range missile targets. The brainchild of Mikoła Petrenko, the system is that of a silo-based short-range nuclear missile that is "cold"-launched by a small nuclear explosive directly below it.

The silos will likely be single-use, and the short-range missiles would need to be specially modified for this purpose. The missiles would need a casing of tantalum-carbide to withstand air resistance, and only the best missile targeting system the FRCP has, capable of making course adjustments in microseconds. To this end, the missile would most likely be dedicated for the most part to targeting, with a small nuclear warhead ranging from three to five kilotons.

The propulsion would not be activated for a majority of its short journey; with projections of velocities up to Mach 153 (Nearly 0.002 of the speed of light) exiting its silo on the initial launch, it would leave the stratosphere in one second, and then clear the thermosphere in another. Upon reaching Low Earth Orbit, then the missile would target and maneuver to its destination, detonating as close as it can. It can reach targets in LEO as quickly as 36 seconds, using thrust vectoring and limited thrusters.

This project is in development.

Projected Capabilities

Initial velocity of Mach 153 (188,924 kilometers an hour, 52 kilometers a second)
Warhead yield of 3-5 kilotons
Accurate CEP of 15 meters of targets in LEO or beyond

Motto:

"Завжди пильний, завжди озброєний."

The Naval Infantry act as the specialized amphibious and assault arm of the Cossack Peoples' Army, providing disciplined uniforms across any scenario: from the decks of a warship to the forested environments of enemy-held territory. It has no mission statements, and largely hounds the Navy and Army.

Equipment

Although listed as a landing craft, it only reaches that description on behalf of WURCo.'s incessant pushing. Technically, the vessel is a RORO (Roll On, Roll Off) vehicle, meaning that it can transport wheeled and tracked vehicles to shore. Despite being 212 meters long and a beam of 28 meters, it has a phenomenally low draft, thus being able to reach most shore conditions. It can store large number of armored vehicles and logistical vehicles for quick deployment. Top speed of 25 knots.

A modification of the VI-92 Ground-based attack helicopter, the VI-93 specializes less in payload and more in reconnaissance, featuring a bulkier but more effective radar, extended fuel reserves, and a Magnetic Anomaly Detector (MAD) for mine and submarine detection. The payload racks do not go to waste however; the VI-93 can be outfitted with low-yield depth charges and torpedoes.
Armament

2 x gimballed Dkha autochannons
8 x payload racks (depth charges, torpedoes (radiation and thermal torpedoes included)
MAD, maximum range of 500 meters. OR
CSD1 dipping sonar, analytical equipment

The WAV-5 is a tracked amphibious transport with a top payload of 9 tons. With a waterproofed hull and front-engine, it is capable of ferrying a squad of Naval Infantry, a WURCo. Type 9 Howitzer, or even a WC-250 utility truck effectively, with an average top speed of 40 km/h, or 13.2 km/h over water. It is usually equipped with a CMG-28 light machine gun, anchored around a topside driver hatch. It has a rear loading ramp to accommodate the aforementioned heavy loads.

The MK-92 is an amphibious armored vehicle developed by Ilyich Makovsky in 1992 as part of the expansion campaign by the Department of War. With a rear-mounted water jet, the vehicle can traverse rivers or lakes at 10 kph with its 300 hp engine. It has a three-man crew (a driver, gunner, commander) with a wide upper hull suitable for tank desant infantry. With a turret-mounted 30mm Kirilov autocannon and a light 12.7mm machine gun, it can provide ample fire support for infantry across a variety of environments, particularly tropical or riverine theaters.
