The LAF is a sizeable military, part of the region Lasagna. Currently, it contains two branches, the Updater Force and the Reserves. The UF is responsible for quick-reaction operations, detags, and other operations that require on-update moves. The Reserves handle off-update operations. The UF is far more prestigious, but way, way harder.

Corporal: A soldier who has completed basic training and is now entering advanced training.
Private: A new recruit, yet to finish basic training.
Training is incredibly important. A soldier with and a soldier without training are two very different people to encounter. For this reason, the LAF will be implementing a series of training programs designed to make our soldiers as good as they possibly can be. There are three phases to this: Basic Training, Advanced Training, and Officer Training.
Basic Training will contain the very basics and be taught to Privates. During this, Privates will learn how to participate in detags, liberations, and peacekeeping operations. Upon completion, the Private will be promoted to Corporal.
Advanced Training will contain advanced non-command R/D concepts. These will include understanding update mechanics, chasing, dossier management, and the like. Upon completion, the Corporal will be promoted to Sergeant.
Sergeants who are thought to have the ability to lead operations are promoted to Lieutenant after proving themselves as a Sergeant.
Officer Training will contain operation command concepts, such as triggering, putting together operations, and the like. Upon completion, the Lieutenant will be promoted to Colonel.
