Nihangok Defense Forces

Note: All equipment which is in brackets are planned acquisitions or are being phased out. Planned Acquisitions are currently NOT in the NDF inventory, and hence they DO NOT count as being part of the NDF inventory. However, for total equipment count purposes, they will be listed in the infobox on the right in parentheses. Phasing Out Equipment ARE counted as part of the NDF inventory and the no. of equipment that is being phased out is noted in parentheses in the infobox.

Note: Equipment for any current and future Additional Agencies listed in this factbook are NOT listed as part of the equipment list tab as they are technically NOT within the NDF structure, but can be in times of war. An example of this would be the Coast Guard, which may not be a part of the official military structure of a nation but may be integrated into the military structure in times of war.

The Nihangok Defense Forces (NDF) is the military force responsible for the defense of the State of Nihangok and its interests, encompassing the Ground Force, Maritime Force, Air Force, Marine Corps, Strategic Rocket Force and Strategic Support Force. The NDF also promotes Nihangok's wider interests abroad under the appropriate constraints and laws, participating in international peacekeeping efforts and assistance in humanitarian aid.

The head of the NDF is the current monarch of the State of Nihangok, currently Emperor Reiwa (Naruhito), and is the Supreme Commander-in-Chief, although all NDF members are to swear their loyalty in protecting the State of Nihangok, its constitution and also directly to the monarch, with the presiding cabinet governance as the representative leadership of the state. As per the constitution, the monarch vests its executive authority by imperial decree, in the Prime Minister and presiding cabinet, through which the Defence Minister is delegated control along with the Prime Minister and Nihangok Defence Council (NDC) of the NDF. The two ministers are, in practice, the ultimate decision makers on the deployment, use and shaping of the NDF, with consultation from the aforementioned NDC and the Defence Minister's Ministry, the Ministry of Defence. The NDC is made up of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief as a symbolic position - who in practice does not typically involve themselves with the decisions of warfare - as well as the Prime Minister, Defence Minister, Joint Chief of Staff, Vice Joint Chief of Staff, and the heads of each of the six branches of the military. In times of war, the structure changes to include the Foreign Affairs Minister to accomodate for potential significant geopolitical strategic changes during times of major conflict. The Minister of Defence oversees the implementation of government policies in defence and military matters for the Nihangoki government in addition to funding, procurement and any operations conducted by the military. The Chief of the Joint Staff (CJS) oversees the commandment of the Nihangok Defense Forces as well as acting as the principal advisor to the Minister of Defence and the NDC.

The Nihangok Defense Forces as seen in its current organisational structure dates back to the founding of the state in 1974, although the origins of an organised military of a unified state predates the current organisation back to antiquity, with early records of a unified military organisation and equipment as far back as 1200BC. Over the various centuries, there would be an inevitable cycle of unification and separation, along with various different military organisations which are attached to the various different states and countries which shared the same general lands. The previous incarnations of the military over the previous century have seen a significant series of conflicts, including both Global Wars, followed by a socialist revolution in 1949 shortly after the conclusion of the Second Global War known as the Tidal Red Wave, and then a subsequent revolution in 1974 which leads to the modern foundations of both the state and military.

The Nihangok Defense Forces formerly had only four official, distinct, uniformed military services, which were the Ground Forces, Maritime Force, Air Force and Strategic Rocket Force. The remaining two distinct services, the Marine Corps and Strategic Support Force, came out of a desire for additional organisation and enhanced focus & capabilities within these particular areas. Owing to the significantly large number of islands the state had, the Ground Forces contained a significant size of specialised marine and amphibious troops that focused on these areas. In order to simplify and increase organisation, an organisational change and reform was made in 1992 with the creation of the Marine Corps as distinct, uniformed military service, with the hopes that this increased autonomy and specialisation would allow for enhanced proficiency and performance of the force, as well as serving a distinct role in being a rapid reaction arm of the military which could be called upon while the Ground Forces were being organised and prepared for reinforcement and sustainment operations.

Today, the Nihangok Defense Forces is an emerging military that is considered to be undergoing rapid modernisation and reform. Units are typically organised into one of six joint theatre commands, determined either by location or function: NDF Aperios Command, NDF Choris Command, NDF Jinlong Command, NDF Nitsune Command, NDF Taeho Command and NDF Strategic Command. Each service branch is primarily responsible for administrative tasks and units which fall under their jurisdiction while the Theatre Commands maintain command authority. The military is said to be relatively large in both quantity of personnel and equipment being procured and maintained, rivaling that of other large and powerful militaries from other nations. Given the size of the current economy, the military takes up a higher proportion of spending, although this may become smaller or be maintained as the GDP of the nation continues to grow. An estimated 0.4% of the population is currently recruited in both the active and active reserve component of the military, drawn on by a significant pool of volunteers owing to the large population size of the nation. Further expansion of the military on top of what is already occurring may occur depending on the modernisation trajectory of the military and military policy formed by the governments and military thinkers of the day, although it does not appear to be likely at this stage. A provision for military conscription remains in place, whereby male citizens of 18-24 years of age of the population deemed fit and capable may be called to arms in a 'major war of interest', although this power has not been used since such provisions were amended to the law of conscription since the formation of the state in 1974. All male citizens deemed fit for training and are registered within the law are to attend periodic short training sessions which go through the basics until the age of 24, at which point they are no longer liable for service but may still be called upon in 'times of great conflict'.

History


A Tale of Three Empires
"Wherever resources are present and owned, conflict and arms will always follow". Such are the words which reflected the early situation of the area of the time, where it was inhabited by various ancient civilisations and dynasties. On the mainland, the area is split by a series of mountain ranges and forests which allowed for the formation of various distinct cultures and dialects, and the expanse of the nation as it currently encompasses is large enough such that the various cultures, languages and states which have formed have never completely allowed for the unification and melding of all distinct cultures. This has always resulted in a series of stable civilisations which have historically militarily competed for resources, often waging large scale military campaigns and wars. In antiquity, the civilisations which would come to dominate the northern Karshe area would subjugate their surrounding areas and grow, primarily through means of expansion, diplomatic subjugation and military conquest. This would eventually result in the formation of three of the earliest empires in the northern Karshe region, though each recognised themselves as heavenly kingdoms through which they had a divine right to govern the known world. These three historic empires and dynasties would come to establish themselves with a strong military competition, and begin the Tale of Three Empires, a constant in which the three competing cultures and the empires who represent them continue to gain and lose power over the centuries.

The earliest empires to initiate this cycle would be the Chinese Tang Dynasty, Korean Silia Kingdom and Japanese Yamato Dynasty. Over a period of several centuries, these empires would come and go, be replaced with the subsequent dynasties and continued to coexist and compete as the three civilisations continued to experience flux between all the differing states and competition. Although earlier civilisations existed beforehand, they mostly competed with other neighbouring kingdoms and dynasties to attain greater power within their own local domain, engaging in a series of military and diplomatic conquests for further territorial expansion and operating the "Heavenly Mandate". It is during these periods before the official control and unification of the states by each distinct civilisation group that some of the largest conflicts were seen, predominantly in the form of mass employed manpower and equipment. As the states continued to consolidate power, territory and resources, so too did the military force of each state grow, although each civilisation had a differing approach to how the military would be levied and used, being either professionally maintained and perfected personnel, a system of mass conscription with a lean official corps, or containing some mixture of the two. Eventually, the resulting states would enter a period of continuous military conflicts but remain at a stalemate, with periods of peace interspersed between times of strife.

This state of affairs would continue until one civilisation could capitalise on the collapse or internal divisions of the other and thereby overpower the remaining civilisation, leading to a period of unification of northern Karshe. A mixture of overextension, poor administration, court & political intrigue, and successive natural disasters would eventually lead to mass rebellions that would fragment the reigning empire into various smaller states and kingdoms, effectively restarting the cycle. The military would make sufficient innovations in the crossbow and often saw various different swords, spears and bows being used by the various states in their continued attempts to gain a technological advantage of warfare. Three such empires would be able to attain the peak of the military power of the region given the resources at the disposal, but would be stretched to breaking point by the size of the empires. These empires would also pioneer and maintain significant naval fleets which further expanded the state's presence on various island groups to the north and west of the Karshe mainland. In the 9th Century during the second unified empire's reign, a significant expansion of the fleet took place to pacify and subjugate the local pirates and raiders who frequently originated from the northern islands, followed by the second unified empire in the 14th Century which once again expanded naval fleets to this time pacify pirates from the western islands. The expansion of the fleets came mostly as advanced traversing and landing vessels through which the state's soldiers were able to adequately eliminate the pirate forces.

The Trail of Gunpowder
Gunpowder became an important resource in the 9th Century following a discovery on how to make the mixture. This allowed for a transformation of warfare over the various centuries, although it would take some time before the mass adoption of gunpowdered weapons would take hold. The primary means of this were initially various different forms of cannons which grew larger and larger, however have stopped short of growing to sizes seen on the other continents. This is due to two primary reasons: the underequipped enemies of the time and the thickness of various walls of cities and fortresses. Amongst the northern Karshe continent, many major cities and key fortresses had massive, thick walls which made it difficult for artillery of all kinds to penetrate through, which likely would reduce the focus on the use of mass cannonry to destroy the walls and thereby allow for a conquest of the location. The other major reason would be that the three predominant civilisations faced primarily raids and piracy from areas beyond the control of all three civilisations, requiring differing approaches to how they would have to be dealt with. Similarly, the relative stability and terrain made the adoption of mass firearms a low priority, with the use of medieval weapons remaining until the mid-16th Century.

However, weapons with gunpowder were still adopted to some extent, primarily those of bombs, rocket-launched arrows and fire arrows for all civilisations, as they were the most effective in dealing with the various structures and enemies of the time. Alongside this would be the adoption of naval cannonry by some states due to the frequency of pirate raids. In the mid-16th Century, firearms from foreign lands were introduced to the northern Karshe area, and demonstrated immediately their use in battle as this caused a rapid success in the consolidation of one of the civilisations to become a stable state which could've gone on to unify all of northern Karshe. By the end of the 17th Century, firearms were adopted across the entire northern Karshe area, with the third and final empire to unify the area in the mid-17th Century pushing for the adoption and improvements to these firearms given the previous successes by other states in the unification wars. The military would become a significantly trained lean core with large conscription seen throughout to maintain the manpower needed to safeguard borders and conduct campaigns. The peace for 150 years following such unification however, would ultimately lead to the atrophying of the military prowess of the state, and be one of many significant reasons for the following years of subjugation and fealty by the Russian Empire.

The Hundred Year Subjugation
In the 1720s, explorers from the Russian Empire began to arrive in northern Karshe, initially on the northern island groups which extend from the Choris Ocean to the Apeiros Ocean. Further explorers would soon make it onto the mainland and establish contact with the third empire, known as the Daehan Jeguk (Korean Empire), and would be eventually militarily driven away following a series of failed attempts to court the monarch into opening a number of ports and increasing trade. This would lead to war between the two countries, and would eventually result in the complete collapse of the empire following successful exploitation of internal unrest by the Russian Empire as well as superior technology and tactics. The empire would be broken up into a number of protectorates while the island groups, northern and eastern coasts of the state were colonised. During this time, importation and use of various Russian technologies allowed for the continued development and innovation of the state's tactics and firearms, while many continued to form resistance movements that were ultimately unsuccessful, with the final movement crushed in 1764. Under colonial rule, key tactics and weaponry were replicated and studied by a number of thinkers from these various states in their attempt to emulate Russian power. The protectorates and mainland were granted independence in the 1880s, in a framework which would eventually allow for the peaceful unification of the state. By using the resources of the state and experiences & designs gained, the new state Gohonjin would be able to form an emerging but comparatively weak military, still being significantly reliant on Russian naval power for protection from far away threats.

The Global Wars
The state of Gohonjin entered the First Global War on the Russian side partly in the hopes that additional participation would see the eventual return of the islands. This is following two years of observing the situation at hand and the home government calculating the advantages and disadvantages of entering the war on either side of the conflict. What would follow would be the eventual Russian Revolution at the end of the First Global War, which allowed for the conditions of diplomatic integration and eventual annexation of the island groups, thereby reinvigorating the territorial integrity of the nation once more. However, following the entrance into the First Global War, due to excessive military expenditure, corruption and political intrigue, the State of Gohonjin remained a weakened state which could no longer maintain a substantial and effective fighting force. This situation allowed for a growing bipolar extreme to develop within the nation, and led to the development of military forces clashing with the forming paramilitaries, although the state remained stable for now. The State of Gohonjin then entered into the Second Global War, prompted by an inadvertent attack on their territory and a war of conquest and subjugation. At the conclusion of the Second Global War, with the nation being a victor, the political tensions exploded and resulted in a civil war between the socialist-communist party and the nationalist party, with a number of smaller independence movements also joining in on the fray. The result would be what is known as the Tidal Red Wave.

The Tidal Red Wave
The Tidal Red Wave is a period of time during which the Gohonjin Civil War struck at the end of the Second Global War up until the end of the Gohonjin Communist Party and the nation in 1974. During this time, the GCP amassed sufficient power from the weakened Gohonjin Nationalist Party and began a series of military maneuvers which cut off main supply routes between the mainland and the islands, thereby gaining significant territory in the north. A number of factors led to the defeat of the GNP, allowing the GCP to later absorb the other independence movements or crush them with a great military force. It would be during this time that the country saw the height of the nation's military in terms of numbers, with millions enlisted either as part of active duty or deep reserve, with the political idea to tie the strength of the peasantry and military to that of the state. It is also during this time that the nation started to look to foreign powers for additional military equipment, industry and development in a socialist manner. However, the state would come to an end in 1974 following a revolution led by the last remaining monarch of the three empires, who fled following the collapse of Gohonjin into civil war and remained in exile. This revolution would be short and last for a few weeks, as a significant number of the intelligensia and military were in agreement that the current administration was ineffective at delivering the reforms promised and that any benefits that their groups would reap were negated by the inefficiencies and overbearing, unmeritocratic nature of the top administration, running contrary to centuries of societal development in northern Karshe. With assistance from the naval and aerial arms of the military, the revolution was launched and resulted in the immediate loss of several cities for the GCP, followed by an additional decapitation strike which saw a significant number of senior GCP leadership killed two days later. The remaining arms of the military would surrender to the newly proclaimed Provisional Government of Gohonjin, which would later change the constitution and name to form a new state known as the State of Nihangok.

Current Era



Current Organisation
Today, the Nihangok Defense Forces is an emerging military that is considered to be undergoing rapid modernisation and reform. Units are typically organised into one of six joint theatre commands, determined either by location or function: NDF Aperios Command, NDF Choris Command, NDF Jinlong Command, NDF Nitsune Command, NDF Taeho Command and NDF Strategic Command. Each service branch is primarily responsible for administrative tasks and units which fall under their jurisdiction while the Theatre Commands maintain command authority. An estimated 0.4% of the population is currently recruited in both the active and active reserve component of the military, drawn on by a significant pool of volunteers owing to the large population size of the nation. The head of the NDF is the current monarch of the State of Nihangok, currently Emperor Reiwa (Naruhito), and is the Supreme Commander-in-Chief. All NDF members are to swear their loyalty in protecting the State of Nihangok & constitution, as well as directly to the monarch, with the presiding cabinet governance as the representative leadership of the state, as the monarch acts in a predominantly ceremonial role. As per the constitution, the monarch vests its executive authority by imperial decree, in the Prime Minister and presiding cabinet, through which the Defence Minister is delegated control along with the Prime Minister and Nihangok Defence Council (NDC) of the NDF. The Chief of the Joint Staff (CJS) oversees the commandment of the Nihangok Defense Forces as well as acting as the principal advisor to the Minister of Defence and the NDC.

Nuclear Weapons
The State of Nihangok reserves the right to deploy nuclear weapons as that of an absolute last resort, and has committed to the non-use of nuclear weapons in any first strike against any other nation, as well as committing to the non-threatening of other states with the employment of nuclear weapons. The nation however reserves the right to launch nuclear weapons first against other threats should it be deemed appropriate. In such cases they are usually of existential threat to not just itself, but humanity as a whole, where examples include: asteroids, extraterrestrial threats and uncontrolled virus outbreaks of mutant or necrotic nature. Under these circumstances, the government may take action to protect the interests of its population and the greater world at large should it be deemed necessary. The nation also reserves the right to launch nuclear weapons if either it or any of its allies are under attack by Weapons of Mass Destruction, as well as when the fundamental existence of this nation is in grave danger. The State of Nihangok under this doctrine is said to adopt a Countervalue approach to the employment of nuclear weapons.

Combat Readiness Scale & Defence Systems
In order to protect the most important cities and strategic locations from ICBM and RKM strikes, the State of Nihangok has employed an experimental form of defence system known as STOP (Strategic Threat Obstruction Protocol), which attempts to intercept and disrupt these weapons. This is effectively a series of experimental defensive weaponry that aims to eliminate any major strategic threat to the areas protected by these systems. The State of Nihangok also devised the LAST HOPE (Last Attempt at Strategic Termination & Housing Of Persons Enduring) protocol as a last ditch effort to save the nation. It involves the use of all conventional and unconventional weapons in the nation's arsenal to drive off attackers and the preservation of as much of the remaining populace as possible. This is also part of the wider countervalue strategy employed by the nation as part of its nuclear weapons usage doctrine. It is noted that while the LAST HOPE protocol plans primarily for the event of a foreign power's attempt at obliterating the State of Nihangok, this protocol can also be enacted should some other existential threat arise.

Service Branches


Nihangok Ground Defence Force (NGDF)
The Nihangok Ground Defence Force (NGDF) is the principal land force responsible for all territorial offensive and defensive operations domestically and internationally for the State of Nihangok, headed by the Chief of Army. The NGDF remains a significantly sized military force, owing to the large mainland of the country, although the defense of the homeland remains a lowered priority primarily due to the long distance of other potentially significant adversaries and rivals from the homeland. The army is currently modernising along with the nation in general, and retains significant defensive and offensive combat potential, primarily for significant, prolonged overseas operations. There are specialised forces for airborne, amphibious combined brigades and other special forces. At present, there is a continued modernisation effort and possible downsizing given the shift in focus towards naval and aerial assets Here are the following weapons used in the NGDF:

Nihangok Maritime Defence Force (NMDF)
The Nihangok Maritime Defence Force (NMDF) is the primary naval branch of the State of Nihangok, being one of the primary apparati to which the State of Nihangok protects its territories, populace and national interests, with the other being the NMC. The NMDF is headed by Chief of Maritime Forces and serves primarily to deny invading forces from landing ground forces, protecting the territorial waters and other regions of interests of Nihangok, and allowing for the rapid deployment and sustainment of ground forces on both the nation's islands and other lands abroad. The NMDF also forms the naval part of the nuclear triad through the employment of SSBNs. The nature of the nation's geography as various island chains, as well as the nation's distance from most other countries, means that the NMDF plays a significant role in the military and sustainment strategies employed by the State of Nihangok. As of present, the NMDF is undergoing a rapid expansion in both the number of military vessels and capabilities to further modernise and allow for greater advancements of its interests.

Nihangok Aerial Defence Force (NADF)
The Nihangok Aerial Defence Force (NADF) is the primary aerial warfare force for the State of Nihangok, responsible for both maintaining aerial control of the nation's skies and conducting operations which advance the nation's interests. The NADF is currently headed by the Chief of Air Force and serves primarily to maintain aerial control in an operational and strategic standpoint, protect significant civilian and military assets, and citizens from any air attacks, and give ground and naval forces the necessary support to execute combined operations. The vastness of the various island groups of the State of Nihangok means that the air force is vital for the continued monitoring of waters in conjunction with naval and ground assets, as well as enabling the rapid deployment of Rapid Reaction Forces to other locations at a short moment's notice. The NADF forms the aerial component of the nuclear triad, controlling assets which could deploy nuclear weapons from space. The NADF is currently undergoing heavy modernisation as the nation modernises, and is also receiving significant expansion in its capabilities. Here are the current aerial and ground assets used by the NADF:

Nihangok Marine Corps (NMC)
The Nihangok Marine Corps (NMC) is the maritime land force service branch of the State of Nihangok, responsible for conducting amphibious and expeditionary operations through combined arms. This is achieved through a separate, specialised ground force consisting of infantry, armour, artillery and special forces, where the NMC forces are expected to remain self-sufficient for shortened but intense durations of conflict and intervention. The NMC is a military branch under the NMDF and is managed by the Commandant of the Marine Corps, although it is headed by the Chief of Maritime Forces. Its key roles are for expeditionary and amphibious warfare, securing the immediate surrounding areas of the State of Nihangok and tackling any far away threats, as well as remaining a high-readiness, rapid reaction force to any quickly developing situation or crisis. Given the geography of the nation, it is vital to have a robust amphibious force that can rapidly deploy to any location within the immediate surroundings or within the nation at a moment's notice. The NMC is the premier intervention force of the NDF and typically is deployed to clear and secure coastal areas to allow for additional intervention and support from the NGDF. Here is the current inventory and planned acquisitions of the NMC:

Nihangok Defence Strategic Rocket Force (NDSRF)
The Nihangok Defense Strategic Rocket Force (NDSRF) is the strategic rocket force of the State of Nihangok, and forms the land-based part of the nuclear triad. This military branch is organised under the NGDF and is therefore headed by the Chief of Ground Forces, but is managed by Commandant of the Strategic Rocket Force. The NDSRF is in possession of all strategic and theater conventional and nuclear ballistic missiles, cruise missiles and other strategic weapons. The NDSRF serves as the primary mechanism for nuclear deterrence, but is also capable of destroying large threats such as Carrier Strike Groups (CSGs) using conventional means, and is leveraged by the fact that multiple small island groups allow for the strategic and long-reaching positioning of such weapons. The NDSRF's primary role is the continued protection of the State of Nihangok by deterrence, the implementation of the Nuclear Protocol should there be a nuclear strike against it or any of the nation's allies, and the elimination of critical adversary military assets that would limit their capacity to wage war and damage the Nihangok. The total quantity of these land-based missiles remain a classified secret, although the different missile types that remain operational are known. Here are the different land-based missiles which are currently known to be operational:

All Strategic and Theater Missiles:

    Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICBMs):

      - DF-5B/C
      - DF-31/A/B
      - DF-41

    Long Range Ballistic Missiles (LRBMs):

      - DF-26/B

    Medium Range Ballistic Missiles (MRBMs):

      - DF-16
      - DF-17
      - DF-21A/C/D

    Short Range Ballistic Missiles (SRBMs):

      - B611M
      - BP-12/A/B
      - CM-401
      - DF-11A/AZT
      - DF-12
      - DF-15A/B/C

    Strategic Cruise Missiles (CMs):

      - CJ-10

    Hypersonic Glide Vehicle (HGVs):

      - DF-ZF

Nihangok Defence Strategic Support Force (NDSSF)
The Nihangok Defence Strategic Support Force (NDSSF) is the sixth uniformed, distinct, military branch service within the Nihangok Defence Force, being the space, cyber, informational and electronic warfare force of Nihangok. This force falls under the purview of the NADF from an organisational perspective and is formally led by the Secretary of the Air Force and Chief of the Air Force, although the branch is a distinct branch on its own, similar to that of the Marine Corps and Strategic Rocket Force. The NDSSF is formed following a series of military reforms which saw the reorganisation and concentration of various networking systems for better proficiency and organisation of these assets. The NDSSF operates Nihangok's own GPS, as well as all other military spacecraft including a variety of satellites, and is also home to the predominant information and cyberwarfare capabilities of the nation, given that it is an area of great interest to the country both in terms of offensive and defensive capabilities. The NDSSF is the smallest of all six independent military services, but remains one of the most critical capabilities that the state deems to need in its military arsenal.

Additional Agencies


Nihangok National Guard (NNG)
The Nihangok National Guard (NNG) is a national military force which remains the national reserve component of the NGDF, NADF and NDSSF, and becomes part of their respective branches under a reserve force designation when activated for any military missions. This agency was established shortly after the reorganisation of the military in 1976 following the founding of the state in 1974 and is also controlled by the national government. However, as part of a compromise between the national government and various different provincial governments, the National Guard could be requested upon by provincial governments following a declaration of disaster to assist in rescue, recovery and sustainment efforts, as well as powers for intervention in extraordinary cases of civil unrest or other extenuating circumstances. The majority of the National Guard members hold civilian duties full-time and serve part-time in the organisation, with a small cadre of members which serve full-time and are augmented by servicemen from the other two branches. The members of the NNG are held to the same moral and physical standards as that of other military branches, be it part-time or full-time servicemen and servicewomen, and are eligible for all military awards. Their main priority is to serve as the final line of conventional defense of the nation and assist in emergency situations other than conventional military situations. The NNG is funded predominantly through national funding, although a small portion of funding (<10%) are derived from collective provincial funding as part of the compromise sought out earlier.

Nihangok Defence Coast Guard (NDCG)
Personnel: 40 000
The Nihangok Defence Coast Guard (NDCG) is the maritime security, search and rescue, and law enforcement agency of the State of Nihangok which operates under the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Nihangoki Government interior ministry with responsibilities for national security, law enforcement, cyber security, emergency management, border control, immigration and citizenship. As of current, the NDCG is NOT counted as being part of the military but can be authorised as such. The NDCG performs multiple roles including: patrol of territorial waters, search and rescue missions, interdiction of human and drug trafficking, maritime environmental & fisheries protection, research, safety and law enforcement, and harbour, coastal and waterway security. In times of war, the NDCG may be requisitioned under order of the National Congress, the Prime Minister or Defence Minister, to be managed as a military service branch operating under the Nihangok Maritime Defence Force. The NDCG remains integral to the continued protection of Nihangok's territorial waters, as well as Nihangok's interests in these waters and further into economic waters, playing a vital role considering the vast island chains and groups off the northern and western coasts of the mainland. These are the following ships and helicopters currently used and on order by the NDCG:

Overview



The Zennovian Royal Military (ZRM) is the military force of Zennovia. The Royal Military is divided into three branches: the Royal Navy, the Royal Army, and the Army Air Corps. The ZRM is headed by the Defense Council, which is composed of the heads of each armed service, and Commander-in-Chief Leusden who is the chair. The current heads of each service are Cunégonde Leclerc, Inès Martel, and Stanislaw Bakula.

Created by various royal regimes throughout Zennovia’s checkered past to cope with new issues, it is tasked with protecting the Kingdom of Zennovia and its people from threats, both foreign and domestic. The Royal Military is to serve a constructive purpose and ensure continued peace, to which it has engaged extensively in restoring law and order throughout the anarchic tracts of land in Zennovia’s rural northwest. At present, its chief tasks are border defense, internal security, and emergency policing/disaster relief. Zennovia’s military has historically remained uninvolved in major foreign affairs.

Compared to its contemporaries, the Zennovian military is shockingly unprepared for a major modern conflict. Many of its leaders operate in a strictly domestic mindset in regards to insurgents, and little competence for foreign warring exists among the ranks. Moreover, despite massive improvements, there remains a considerable degree of corruption in the armed forces with regards to the annual transfer of unspent money to other ministries. Further, it is poorly organized outside of the Northwest Operation District

Intelligence Agencies and Special Forces


As a domestic-oriented force, Zennovia’s military is not engaged in major external intelligence campaigns, counter-terrorism or international security projects. It does employ a cyberwarfare network and extensive surveillance apparatus on its home territory, and has several independent special forces units tuned to insurgency suppression and crime-breaking. The Royal Order Brigade, Guards’ Militia Corps, and Frontier Security Force represent special forces, while the Viyamar Cyber Office and Shpil Office are the primary internal surveillance groups.

The Royal Order Brigade is a state-contracted paramilitary group given access to small arms with the purpose of policing outlying lands found to be severely disordered by the Shpil Office. The Guards’ Militia Corps is a state-run militia organization for West Zennovians with the purpose of encouraging integration and cooperation between West Zennovians and the Royal Military that polices the northwest. The Frontier Security Force is a counterterrorism unit deployed in the northwest that combats insurgency groups attempting to instigate violence.

The Viyamar Cyber Office is the moderately competent, decently-funded cyber warfare and intelligence section of the Zennovian intelligence apparatus. Its headquarters are hidden in a financial tower, the bottom half of which houses the organization’s disguised financial personnel; the top half is the regular offices of the VCO. The Shpil Office is the similarly competent, similarly funded domestic intelligence service of Zennovia. It collects information on potentially dangerous activities, targets pedophiles, and runs operations against insurgents.

Zennovian satellites orbiting the planet include 25 geolocation satellites, 47 communications satellites, 6 satellites of the ZEW (Zennovian Emergency Warning) missile warning system, 7 satellites of the government’s marine electronic reconnaissance system, 3 topographic satellites, 2 radar-location satellites, 2 optical reconnaissance satellites and several experimental devices or technology demonstrators.

Organization


The smallest unit in the army is the squad, which contains 7 to 14 soldiers and is led by a sergeant. (A slightly larger unit is a section, which consists of 10 to 40 soldiers but is usually used only within headquarters or support organizations.) Three or four squads make up a platoon, which has 20 to 50 soldiers and is commanded by a lieutenant. Two or more platoons make up a company, which has 100 to 250 soldiers and is commanded by a major. The company has the first expanded administration, with a headquarters platoon administered by a sergeant and containing supply, maintenance, or other sections.

Two or more companies make up a battalion, which has 400 to 1,200 troops and is commanded by a lieutenant colonel. The battalion is the smallest unit to have a staff of officers (in charge of personnel, operations, intelligence, and logistics) to assist the commander. Several battalions form a brigade, which has 2,000 to 8,000 troops and is commanded by a brigadier general. A brigade is the smallest unit to integrate different types of combat and support units into a functional organization. A combat brigade, for example, usually has infantry, armor, artillery, and reconnaissance units.

Two or more brigades, along with various specialized battalions, make up a division, which has 7,000 to 22,000 troops and is commanded by a major general. A division contains all the arms and services needed for the independent conduct of military operations. Two to seven divisions and various support units make up an army corps, or a corps, which has 50,000 to 300,000 troops and is commanded by a lieutenant general. The army corps is the largest regular army formation, though in wartime two or more corps may be combined to form a field army (commanded by a general), and field armies in turn may be combined to form an army group.

(Modified version of the Encyclopedia Britannica article military unit’s description of army organization, paragraphs 2-4).

Infantry

Zennovia has five primary types of infantry: rail, mobile, mechanized, marines, and sortie infantry. Rail infantry are intended to be somewhat static formations of defensive soldiers able to be called on and mustered in short notice along crucial points of infrastructure; for this, they are called the “night watch”, as they are imagined to be the first soldiers active once an invasion occurs at night. Mobile infantry are the standard formation of combat infantry, able to be boarded with equipment in either Casspir or Mamba APCs and ferried throughout the country. Mechanized infantry are similar to the mobile infantry, but they operate with Ratel or Badger IFVs, thus providing considerable organic firepower. Marines are typically units based on operating in difficult, marshy terrain around major Zennovian lake regions. Sortie infantry are special infiltration units designed to instill chaos behind enemy lines, usually preceding an offensive operation.

The regular rail infantry unit is organized in a brigade of 5,000 personnel, equipped with non-heavy weapons. Their firepower can be provided by accompanying armored or mechanized forces, as well as the trains they inhabit, though these units will attempt to keep their trains away from enemy forces. They may possess ZT3 Ingwe anti-tank launchers, or a variety of automatic grenade launchers, shotguns, or machine-guns for defending trains. Sometimes, rail infantry are converted into internal policing units and mounted in mamba APCs, demanding 455 vehicles, though this can also be done with regular civilian vehicles.

Mobile infantry are equipped based on the mission, usually accompanied by one or more artillery brigades. They are mounted in up to 820 Casspir MRAP vehicles per division with numerous additional vehicles for logistics, medical, or otherwise. They may also be mounted in up to 1,050 Mamba Mk3 APCs per division. They enjoy equipment such as the ZT3 Ingwe or MILAS for anti-tank weapons, dozens of machine-guns, and at least over a dozen automatic grenade launchers, among other relevant pieces of equipment. Some units may include sortie infantry. The full division has about 11,480 personnel, divided into two brigades of 5,740 personnel, further divided into seven battalions of 820 personnel.

Mechanized infantry are the heavier variant of the mobile infantry; they have similar armaments and organization to the mobile infantry, and lack some machine-gun platoons in exchange for vehicle-mounted weapons. Moreover, they enjoy the Ratel ZT-3 or Rooikat; the former is exclusively for anti-tank operations, and the latter is for scouting and tank killing in favorable situations. Mechanized units are typically mounted (with accompanying Mamba or Casspir vehicles for logistics/medical/etc) in up to 100 Ratel IFVs to the battalion, which can be mustered into brigades for greater operating force. Typically a battalion has 1,200+ personnel.

Marine infantry are generally light infantry, armed at best with a heavy machine gun or grenade launcher of some kind. Unlike marine forces internationally, Zennovian marines have largely been converted over the years into a kind of lake police, treading maritime trade areas and raiding criminal outposts. Thus, the average marine unit is organized into a brigade of about 3,200, with units of 200 light infantry mounted on dinghies and rented civilian craft fitted with machine-guns for policing.

Armored Regiment

Zennovian armored regiments are units meant to have minimal independent function; instead, they are there to buoy combined arms operations in conjunction with the infantry. Thus, they typically include a few companies of armor that can be rationed out, and often the regiment’s overall command will redeploy logistics vehicles to integrate with an infantry force temporarily.

The armored regiment contains six squadrons (12 tanks each) with roughly 800-900 men and several trucks depending on the logistical burden of the mission. The squadrons are meant to be rationed out as necessary in a zone of operations, and they have specially planned mobilization pathways for rails.

Artillery

The standard unit of artillery in the army is the Artillery Regiment, which consists of 700-800 personnel; there are 2-3 battalions per unit, and 3-4 batteries of artillery (4-6 guns per) in the unit. Mobile kinetic artillery units employ the GV6 Rhino and T5-52 Condor, less mobile kinetic artillery units employ either the G7 Howitzer or GV5 Leopard, and rocket troops employ the Bateleur Mk 2 127mm MRL or Valkiri Mk 1 127mm MRL, anti-air employs Umkhonto GBADS (such units have up to 1,000 personnel).

Note that this is just a rough structure, and actual organization and equipment may vary depending on the specific mission.

Navy

Naval units are loosely organized; administrative ship units, typically destroyers or frigates, are deployed as squadrons. Several of these and their supporting combat ships are a flotilla, and then several flotillas are typically considered a fleet. The two chief fleets are the Northern Fleet and Southern Fleet, buoyed by the North Flotilla. Funding and organization overall is managed by the Navy Logistics Office, a dedicated unit of higher level administration that can aid in seamless transition from unit to unit for ships without affecting their capacity to fund themselves.

Air Corps

Air Corps units suffer from a complete lack of standardization; formations are raised and altered on demand in accordance with the army’s activities. They are all coordinated by the 4th Department “Aerila”, which itself is subordinate in the 1st Department “Artima”. Air units are coordinated similarly to naval units logistically, with the Army Air Finance Office responsible for keeping finances in check while units move around.

Deployment and Standing Units


The Zennovian Military has two overarching missions: defeat the insurgency in the northwest and guard its air, land, and maritime borders. Thus, the Ministry of Defense has several zones, one of which is under mobilization conditions; each area has its own supporting network of rail, road, and air logistics and are coordinated by local commands who defer to the overarching staff. Zones are manned by regionally-named corps units.

Each zone has one active division and any number of reserve divisions swapped out with the active division for training throughout the year. Units with an asterisk are active. Soldiers are automatically placed on universal healthcare, covering emergency care and annual doctor visits, as well as government counselors, veteran worker groups, and other amenities with the intent of keeping mental health in good condition.

Custom Collaborative Projects

It is recognized by the mod team that certain modern technologies require an incredible amount of resources and development. That often single non-superpower countries have been shown to have great difficulty with perfecting and affording. Thus, in order to balance custom equipment, we've locked certain technologies behind GDP and other requirements. Requiring and encouraging the procurement of advanced equipment to be international projects.

  1. Fifth-Generation Aircraft:

    Requirements
    At LEAST Two contributing nations and a combined GDP of $21 Trillion


  2. Sixth-Generation Aircraft:

    Requirements
    At LEAST four contributing nations and a combined GDP of $42 Trillion

Technology Readiness Levels

Technology readiness levels (TRLs) are a method for estimating the maturity of technologies in RP. TRLs are based on a scale from 1 to 9 with 9 being the most mature technology. The movement of technology between levels may be appealed to and left to the mod team. Considerations for a nation or an international research organization to mature technology to a higher level are GDP, Budget dedicated to civilian research, and percentage of a military budget dedicated to R&D(10-15%, Max.).
