Finally finished the overview for the Azorisian Military (Someday the links will be usable/correct).
Tsar-Apparent Aekoya III Boyle, is the General of the Armies of
Azoris, he is pictured above wearing Garb of State.
After several peacekeeping missions and military campaigns, he
has proven to be uniquely competent in military affairs
involving, sea, land, and air. He has served the nation with distinction.
All Azorisian men and women over the ages of fourteen are mandated to participate in firearm training exercises and to complete a level of basic training for military service. Although this service does not mandate enlistment in the army after completion, it is commonly understood that if the government has need of their services, they may be conscripted in the future. As is written into the Azorisian Constitution under sections III and V.
Since the conception of Azoris, it has been understood that in order to maintain this Tsarist Union there needs to be a level of peace within the Tsardom, and projected outside of it. This does not mean an interventionist policy is to be applied, but instead that a strong standing army must be kept at all times. To this end, two years of service is mandatory for all citizens who are physically able. This service may be completed on home grounds or on an expedition, or tour. The most common avenue for citizens to follow in recent years has been a domestic training program with the Azorisian Space Force. The Military Infrastructure within Azoris is highly decentralized and often left to the Governor of each province to manage his or her local defensive forces. The Federal Government in times of conflict can and will intervene with this process, however.
The Azorisian Military is divided into five major divisions, these divisions are the Terrestrial, Naval, Aeronautical, Astronautical, and Counter-Espionage Agencies. The total size of active personnel across all five divisions are reported to be roughly 0.8% of the Azorisian population or 5,022,844 members (although only 754,000 people could be mobilized within a reasonable timeframe given Azoris' decentralized nature) In other news, reports conducted by the Bureau of Internal Management suggest that the fastest growing sectors are the Astronautical and Counter-Espionage Agencies. The Terrestrial Division is responsible for land warfare and maintaining occupations in foreign adversaries. The Terrestrial Division includes forces such as infantry companies, mechanized infantry, anti-aircraft weaponry, and anti-tank weaponry. The Naval Division is responsible for ensuring that Azoris' naval integrity is unbreached. Although this division is not at the forefront it once was, it retains a series of Aircraft Carriers among other combat-fitted naval vessels. The Aeronautical Division is one of the most competitive in Azoris, as they ensure that Azoris' skies are kept clear of foreign influences. The Aeronautical Division is responsible for presiding over the improvement of aerial combat systems including, aerocrafts, delocalized missiles, and anti-missile defence systems. The Astronautical Division is a fledgling division that is responsible for the construction of any space-faring craft under Azorisian control. This division is responsible for preserving Azoris' interests among the stars for military and civilian purposes, by creating probes, spacecraft, and research stations. The final division is the Counter-Espionage Division, which is responsible for Cyber-Warfare. This division employs the use of skills involving hacking, coding, and subtle influencing to turn the tides of any invasion, in both defensive and offensive measures.

The Azorisian Terrestrial Forces
The classic soldiers of the Azorisian Army, these troops are commonly armed with a variety of primary weapons of varying make, a nationally approved handgun, and they are given one combat knife, one flashbang, and one concussion grenade. In addition, each soldier is expected to carry three day's worth of rations as they are taught to fight autonomously and may find themselves separated from their unit in the event of prolonged conflict. These soldiers have two different outfits for combat scenarios, these are the Light Order Infantry outfit, which allows more a high level of maneuverability and the possibility of amphibious assaults. These outfits are geared towards mountainous, and other rough terrains which can commonly be found in Ontario, and Quebec. The second outfit is the Heavy Order Infantry which restrains the freedom of movement from an individual but allows for a great deal more protection and limited resistance to concussive explosives. These types of outfits or load-outs are commonly used in urban environments, and other even terrains such as prairies, flatlands, and fields.
The A.R.N. in recent years has also officially signed with the Tsar to conduct military operations in foreign jurisdictions when required. These campaigns to date have been limited yet stunningly effective, official reports from the A.R.N. Tax Return (which they pay -15 Dollars per year in) show that they have returned an estimated 3 to 6 Trillion Dollars back to Azorisian lands. The standard A.R.N. soldier is issued one Lightweight Machine Gun, one Recreational Handgun(TM) and one multi-use accessory tool. In addition to this, they are issued a loadout of heavy kevlar which is cumbersome to wear but works to protect these soldiers from all but the most direct lines of fire.

The Naval Division || Военно-морская дивизия
The Naval Division in general is the most overlooked division within Azoris' army. Although they maintain a safe and secure presence in the Great Lakes area and exert influence across the Eastern Coast of North America. The pride and joy of the Azorisian Navy is the A.Z. Rellandia, a Flagship which closely resembles the Standard Aircraft Carrier, the difference being that the vessel is plainly outfitted to reside within the Great Lakes area. This carrier has to refuel often compared to other models of a similar make, but it makes up for the lack of staying power by sheer size. This aircraft carrier has a full load displacement of 100,000t. Given its large size it primarily resides in Lake Superior and operates in transporting aircraft, and bulk goods throughout the Great Lakes. The Full Navy includes 36 note-worthy vessels (not including the A.Z. Rellandia). These include roughly...
~ 36 Destroyer Class Vessels
~ 24 Type-26 Frigate Class Vessels
~ 12 Heavy Cruisers
~ 12 Light Cruisers
~ 12 EM Minelayers
~ 12 Corvettes
It is important to note that all of Azoris' naval vessels are equipped with Icebreaking capabilities and reinforced hulls designed to traverse the Northern Passage and reach as far north as Ellesmere Isle if need be. However, Azoris' naval interests lie more with the Merchant Navy when it comes to maritime affairs. All members of the former RDB alliances have retained their free trade treaties with Azoris, and several of the nations are listed below on the map.

The Aeronautical Division || Воздушное подразделение
The Azorisian Aeronautical Forces
The Aeronautical Division is one of the most prestigious divisions of the Azorisian Armed Forces. These forces are concentrated in the airfields outside of Vasque (near Lake Michigan) and Vrynea (north of Lake Ontario). The Airforce has been outfitted with the newest air-space technologies. Trans-continental flight is common among the military-class aircraft and has an airspace ceiling of 61,000 feet (for most models). The premier division of the Azorisian Air Force is called the SnowBirds Division. This Division is made up of a group of nine aces who have defended Azoris in the recent wars, and have continued to aid in offensive and defensive measures. The most common aircraft in the Aeronautical Division is the AC-130J Ghostrider, which is used for a variety of different tasks within the military. These tasks can range from reconnaissance to resupply missions.
There are roughly 1,800 aircraft in the Azorisian Aeronautical Division with a high variety of different models...
~ AC-130J Ghostrider Aircraft (Gunship): 900
~ B-1B Lancer (Bomber): 150
~ MC-12W Liberty (Reconnaissance): 150
~ CN-235 (Transport): 600
There are several other aircraft that are rented from private corporations which include the A.R.N.. In addition, there is an experimental.division which is termed the Foreign Legion, which includes aircraft from the listed nations...

The Astronautical Forces || Космическое деление
The Azorisian Astronautical Forces (Central Space Agency)
The Azorisian Astronautical Division is among the highest funded Division in the Azorisian armed forces, with roughly equal funding to the Terrestrial Divison. With a budget equally roughly 30% of military expenditure, this division has pioneered Azoris' space program. Although in recent years private companies have begun to overshadow the Astronautical Divison, this Division has still led to many key innovations in the ways of spaceflight. One of the most notable accomplishments was the components developed to help out with Project Jovia, which is still in progress. Project Jovia is a series of missions that have resulted in an international effort that intends to reach the Jovian Orbit and the Inner Asteroid Belt to extract mineral wealth. The Azorisian Astronautical Division has also pioneered efforts to develop a public-private partnership, alongside corporations such as the A.R.N. to further Azoris' technological development.
The Azorisian Astronautical Division is currently developing a bandwidth program, through the use of satellites the Astronautical Division intends to spread the internet to areas which do not currently have access. The next step is to experiment with Nuclear-Based Engines and Thrusters, which rely on a Nuclear Reactor to launch a rocket from a station within Earth's orbit. (This technology will not be tested on Earth's surface). There is also expected to be future projects designed to improve the functionality of the Cold-Air Thrusters which have been developed during the period of Jovian Exploration. Given Azoris' economic surplus within the past few decades, there has been an abundance of personal, private, and public donations to the Astronautical Division.
The Astronautical Division has overseen a series of mission programs ranging back from 1954, and the end of the Second Rome War. This seemingly great war resulted in Azoris receiving foreign scientists for the first time in decades, and for the first time ever the country received rocket technicians. The first series of rocketry and other high-intensity ballistics was called the Azores model. The Azores was a line of rockets which ran on traditional combustion engines and for the time start-of-the-art combustion reactions. The second line of rocketry was the Issnic Soul Series. The Issnic Series of rockets followed a similar pathway as the Azores series, except, this new series worked to produce an early GPS system that was accessible to the entirety of the Azorisian Military. This outdated infrastructure is rumoured to still be used to this day in some of the rural districts within Azoris. The third series was the Dykiris Series, which was sent to place down automatons on the Lunar Surface and return viable photographs to the Azorisian Continent. Then another series which followed was the Liura Series, which provided mid-level Television access to citizens of Azoris and allied nations up until the Belnedian Revolution. Afterwards, the series was retired and replaced. The second-last series was the Artem Series, this series provided internet Access to all Azorisians, no matter how far apart they were in the area. The newest series called Illuminum has completely reinvigorated Azoris' cable news network and provided an amiable network for freelance business televangelists to broadcast from.
The Counter-Espionage Agency || Агентство по борьбе с шпионажем
The Counter-Espionage Forces
The Counter-Espionage Agency is called many things within Azoris. It's called an Intelligence Service, a Secret Service, an arm of the state, none of these titles fully apply. however. The Counter-Espionage Agency is single-handedly the most cutting edge, and up to date wing of the Azorisian Military. It has trained professional Blackhat hackers, political espionage agents, and all of the country's aristocracy at one time or another. This agency's stated goal is to act in the defence of the Azorisian State through any means required to ensure it's existence. This had led to the Agency taking on a more secretive approach, and focusing on cybersecurity, A.I. Development, and experimental military tactics which have not yet made their way into the mainstream.
The Counter-Espionage Agency also acts as agents of Espionage on behalf of the Azorisian Government and has been known to incite revolution, rebellion, and even in one case outright civil war within foreign nations. It is import to note, however, that the Counter-Espionage Agency acts according to the Azorisian Constitution and has had zero violations in well over a hundred years of service. The Agency also in lighter aspects, has been sent out to save politicians from foreign nations and either secure their hold on power or bring them to the safety of Azoris. Also, the Agency is one of the leading donators of funding to personal cybersecurity firms within Azoris, and the Information Technology Sector in general.
This agency has also served to be a pioneer in the fields of Computer Science and Software Development, and is rumoured to have had access to a militarized ptoto-internet up to twenty years before the civilian & business markets had been made aware of it's potential. Another example of this pioneering attitude is a recently declassified project, code named, The Valley which worked to make functional A.I's which resembled a humanoid form. This project met with little success but the form was perfected and is now used to build prosthetic limbs for civilians in need.
