RanksImperial Orinese Defence Force ranks and insignia

The Imperial Orinese Defence Force (IODF) is the military organisation responsible for the defence of Orioni. It consists of the Imperial Orinese Army (IOA), Imperial Orinese Navy (ION), Imperial Orinese Air Force (IOAF) and a number of 'tri-service' units. The IODF has both full-time personnel and active reservists and is supported by the Council of Defence and several other civilian agencies.

Role

Orioni is internationally recognised as a regional power and former great power with security concerns in adjacent regions. Outside observers and analysts predict that Orioni wants to become a regional hegemon. Right now, Orioni is actively working to limit any direct threats in its corner of the wurld. This is the best way to survive in international politics.[citation needed] As the economic and military power of other countries has surged in recent years, Orinese defence preparations have become heavily focused on the Oriental Ocean This naval security is part of the reason why the Entente of Oriental States was formed, open to all countries bordering the Oriental Ocean.[1] The military doctrine of Orioni puts great emphasis on naval superiority in home waters and providing escorts for commercial shipping vessels, which are the lifeline of the island nation. Orioni's military strength lies in its powerful blue-water navy, comprising 8 fleets. It is capable of operating globally, across the deep waters of open oceans. The greatest challenge Orinese military leaders currently face is securing allies with the requisite combination of resources and resolve to be reliable coalition partners in deterring outside aggression.

The IODF's current priorities are identified by three main areas of focus. The first of these priorities is to defend Orioni from direct attack or intimidation. The second priority is to contribute to the security of Oriental Europa and the Azure Sea. The third priority is to contribute to a stable Oriental region and a rules-based order which supports the nation’s interests. Recent policy decisions show that the government will place equal weight on the three priorities when developing the IODF's capabilities. To achieve these priorities, Orioni needs to deploy significant military forces. More than they have now. They need to protect countries like the Sunset Sea Islands, Tamurin, the Bainbridge Islands, and Niederoestereich. This is achieved by forming multilateral alliances on top of bilateral alliances. Via EOS membership, Orioni ensures that its security umbrella remains over the heads of all four of those countries.

The IODF's legal standing draws on the executive government sections of the Constitution of Orioni. It gives the Imperial Government the power to make laws regarding Orioni's defence and defence forces, and gives the Government responsibility for defending Orioni from invasion and sets out the conditions under which the government can deploy the defence force domestically. The Constitution also sets out the IODF's command arrangements. It states that: "the command in chief of the military defence forces of the Empire is vested in the Supreme Commander". The Councillor for Defence and several subordinates exercise control. The Councillor acts on most matters alone, though the Security Council considers important matters. The Councillor then advises the Chairperson, who acts as advised in the normal form of executive government. The Imperial Council has never been required by the Constitution or legislation to seek parliamentary approval for decisions to deploy military forces overseas or go to war.

Orioni does not seek a war, but given the match of Great Anglia and other countries, it needs to be ready to fight one.

History

Armour from Kourma.
Pile of genitals, an accounting method for determining how many were killed in battle.

An elite and well-trained force of bodyguards protected the members of the royal family at all times. To either side of the king there would have been guard. Orinese warriors are intriguing. They wore a full-body armour of bronze plates. Several elements of body armour (body cuirass, shoulder guards, breastplates and lower protection plates) have been found at Kourma.[2] Orinese armour and weapons survive to this day. And what they reveal is a people with advanced military technology and a powerful emphasis on battle. Spears were the weapon of choice for most of the ancient world. Spear were used with both hands, raised to the shoulder when standing in a line. Clad in their armour, shield and spear, an Orinese warrior would clash with his opponent. When out on campaign, the Classical Age armies would taunt the enemy: "May your wife become a widow and another man take her. May your days be few, and your children vagabonds."

Swords could be quite long, up to 90 cm in the early periods. By the time of Insular Orioni, they were slowly switching from long heavy swords to shorter dagger-type swords. This may have been partly influenced by necessity, or by connections with their Oriental neighbours. The swords have elegant blades which taper inwards with a slight curve halfway down the sword. The pommel and the blade were made of one piece, clad in wood and wrapped in leather. When used, these sharp-edge swords would slash with deadly efficacy. Any captured, defeated soldiers would be sent home, disarmed and alive, but castrated. Castration of defeated enemies was a tradition. This kind of mutilation created a lasting reminder of their defeat in battle. Because the castrated soldier would never reproduce again, their wives were described as "widows whose husbands are still alive." Enemy corpses were buried and also castrated, as a souvenir of the killing.[3]

As colonial exploration progressed in the 14th century, military operations required long-distance cooperation and assistance in order to effectively conduct territorial expansion throughout the Meteorolan archipelago. The Orinese military was reorganised when the structure of a unified navy became necessary. Its primary strategic focus was on maritime trade and guaranteeing it with a large navy. As a result of the complex command structure, the army, and navy were assigned to serve as an overseas defence force. They fought in a series of horrible and brutal conflicts between the 14th and 18th centuries. Some of these conflicts include the Varian Campaign, Ayubid Expedition, and the coastal raids on Hakkad (1485).

In the 21st century, the countries of Eurth continued to move towards centralisation and globalisation. Some developed countries transitioned to post-industrial capitalism. However, ideological political and economic tensions did not disappear. In 2006, Orioni began specialising its military force. This was partly due to the Great Pot Wars (2004). The government leadership were in shock after the surprise attacks and started supporting military reform. The restructuring was completed in 2011. It was during this 5-year period that the OSRU was formed.

Current structure

The military leadership is vested with the Supreme Commander (SC). The SC is supported by the three other senior uniformed leaders: General-in-chief of the army, Grand Admiral of the Fleet and Chief marshal of the air force. These four advise the councillor of defence on military matters. This "defence council" is a headquartered at the command centre near O'polis.

The Imperial Orinese Army (IOA) is the land-based and largest component of the Imperial Orinese Defence Force. While the Army is principally a light infantry force, it is currently being 'hardened and networked' and expanded to enable it to conduct higher-intensity operations. The Army's main combat forces are grouped in several brigades. Support for the units in these formations is provided by an aviation brigade, a combat support and ISTAR brigade and a logistics brigade. In addition, there are six Army Reserve brigades; these brigades are "paired" with the three regular combat brigades. The Army's main tactical formations are combined arms battle groups, made up of elements drawn from different units. Tauri Military Base (northeast) makes an ideal proving ground thanks to its remote location and is home to the Mendakh Mountain Troops.

The Orinese Coastal Defence Force (OCDF) is a branch of the Army. The Orinese Coastal Defence Force, as its name states, is in charge of defending the Orinese coast from air, land, or sea attacks. The OCDF most notably operates a series of Surface-to-Air (SAM) batteries along the Orinese Coast.

The Orinese Special Reconnaissance Unit (OSRU) is the Army's special forces division. It comprises a paratroopers regiment, a Commando Regiment, the reserve Commando Regiment, the Special Operations Engineer Regiment and signals, logistics and training units. There are ten known special unit task forces: I. Attack; II. Black; III. Connect; IV. Destroy; V. Engage; VI. Fragment; VII. Ghost; IIX. Hacker; IX. Ignite; X. Jammer.[a] The Army's special forces units have been expanded since April 2006 and are well-equipped and capable of being deployed by sea, air or land. It currently comprises approximately 2,200 personnel under the command of General Aramas Taranga.

The current General-in-chief of the army is a direct subordinate of the Supreme Commander. All soldiers are considered professionals following the suspension of conscription, voted in parliament in 1977 and made effective in 1981.

“A good navy is not a provocation to war. It is the surest guarantee of peace.”

- Theodore Roosevelt Jr., 16th President of the United States

The Imperial Orinese Navy (ION) is the naval branch of the Imperial Orinese Defence Force. The ION currently operates just 320 commissioned warships, including frigates, submarines, patrol boats and auxiliary ships, as well as a number of non-commissioned vessels. In addition, the ION maintains a force of combat, logistics and training helicopters. The ION is one of the most modern navies in the region and is responsible for defending Orioni waters and undertaking operations in distant locations.

There are two parts to the ION's structure. One is an operational command, Fleet Command, and the other is a support command, Navy Strategic Command. The Navy's assets are administered by four 'forces' which report to the Grand Admiral. These are (1) the Fleet Air Arm, (2) the Mine Warfare, Clearance Diving, Hydrographic, Meteorological and Patrol Force, (3) Submarine Force and (4) Surface Force. All naval bases across Orioni also report to the Grand Admiral.

The ION is divided into eight fleets with their own AOR. Each fleet consists of surface forces (aircraft carrier, destroyers, frigates, amphibious vessels etc.), submarine forces, coastal defence units, and aircraft.

  • Vega Naval Base South, the key to ensuring the safety and security of Zuidhaven, is home to the 1st and 2nd fleet.
  • Perseus Naval Base West, by far the largest military installation, is home to the 3rd, 4th and 5th fleet.
  • Dion Naval Base North, protecting the important mining and industrial areas, is home to the 6th and 7th fleet and the OSRU.
  • Oris Naval Base East is home to the 8th fleet.

Air Force

The Imperial Orinese Air Force (IOAF) is the aviation branch of the Imperial Orinese Defence Force, responsible for the defence of Orinese airspace and for other aerospace operations. The Air Force has modern combat and transport aircraft and a network of bases in strategic locations across Orioni. The Air Force carries out combat air patrols around Orioni, while also maintaining an extensive network of ground and air early-warning radar systems. The branch also has an aerobatic team known as Aerotochi (from Oharic "esitochi", meaning "arrows") and has recently become involved in providing air transport in several EOS peacekeeping missions.

The IOAF structure has sixteen flying squadrons; four combat squadrons, five maritime patrol squadrons, six transport squadrons, six training squadrons (including three Operational Conversion Units and a forward air control training squadron) as well as one Airborne Early Warning & Control Squadron and a Joint Terminal Attack Controller squadron. The Air Force also includes a single independent flight (No. 5 Flight). The ground units supporting these flying squadrons include three expeditionary combat support squadrons, three security force squadrons and a range of intelligence, air traffic control, communications, radar and medical units.

The IOAF has a single operational command, Air Command. Air Command is the operational arm of the IOAF and consists of Air Combat Group, Air Mobility Group, Surveillance and Response Group, Combat Support Group, Air Warfare Centre and Air Force Training Group. Each group consists of several wings.

Current bases

Maikeli Command Center near O'polis.

The Imperial Orinese Defence Force maintains several dozen bases and facilities across the country. The administrative headquarters of the IODF and the three services is located at the Maikeli Command Center near O'polis alongside the main offices of the Council of Defence. Yestek, the military intelligence service, is also located at Maikeli.The Orinese Army's regular units are concentrated in a few bases, most of which are located near Zuidhaven, Andro and Cygnus. Other important Army bases include the OSRU Military Base near Tauri, and Camp Yepiri. The Vega Military Academy is a tri-service university for officer cadets of all services who wish to attain a university degree through the IODF. The Imperial Orinese Navy has four main bases; Naval Base South (Vega), Naval Base West (Perseus), Naval Base East (Oris) and Naval Base North (Dion). The IODF also maintains an undisclosed number of radar installations and hosts 2 ground stations to support the EOS Space Program.

Equipment

Military equipment of Orioni is a list of the equipment currently in use with the IODF. It includes combat vehicles, aircraft, watercraft, artillery, and transport vehicles. The primary task of the IODF is to help defend the interests of the Orioni Empire. But it can also serve as part of an Entente of Oriental States (EOS) force, or an Assembled Nations (AN), or any other multinational force. To meet its commitments, the equipment of the military is constantly updated and modified. To meet any shortage or requirement on operations, the IODF can request equipment under an Urgent Operational Requirement (UOR), which supplements planned equipment programmes.[4][b]

Military ships

As of 2016, the Imperial Orioni Navy (ION) operates 331 ships.[d] The names of commissioned ships of the Navy are prefixed with the letters "HMS", designating "Her Majesty's Ship". Non-commissioned, civilian-manned vessels of the navy have names that begin with "HMNS", standing for “Her Majesty's Naval Ship.” The names of ships are officially selected by the councillor of defence, often to honour important places or people. The navy also maintains a reserve fleet of inactive vessels that are maintained for reactivation in times of need.[6]

A large deck platform whose expanded air power helps improve the Navy's ability to transport, embark and protect Marine amphibious forces. The flight deck has five helipads for rotary-wing aircraft, and the vessel can support up to ten such aircraft overall. It has a capability to transport up to 4,000 personnel or some fifty military trucks. The vessel serves to launch and retrieve various elements suitable for amphibious assault operation, including helicopters, air-cushioned landing craft and amphibious vehicles. Additionally, the class holds the capacity to provide fuel to other warships in the fleet as required. This underway replenishment would eliminate the need for ships to drop anchor to refuel, saving steaming time.

Rank structure

The ranks used by the IODF originated in the Gallambrian Armed Forces in the 20th century. After 2006, these ranks and insignia were aligned with the other member countries of the Entente of Oriental States. EOS maintains a “standard rank scale”. This is an attempt to match every member country's military ranks to the corresponding ranks used by the other members. OF-1 to OF-10 are used for commissioned officers. OR1 to OR9 are used for other ranks, which can be either Non-commissioned officer or Enlisted rank.
