The Royal Onekawa-Nukanoa Army (Onekawan: Te Taua Roera o Onekawa-Nukanoa) is the land component of the Royal Onekawa-Nukanoa Armed Forces (Onekawa: Te Ope Manuka o Onekawa-Nukanoa) and comprised of 92,000 active personnel, with 33,000 reservist personnel and 3,700 civilians. It is charged with defending the soverignty and interests of Ngāti Onekawa-Nukanoa and its allies on land. The Royal Onekawa-Nukanoa Army can traces its lineage to the war-parties raised during and after the expulsion of Arthurista in 1896.

History

Structure and Organisation

Whilst the offical head of the Royal Onekawa-Nukanoa Army is Māori Kīngi Tama III Nukanoa in his role as Paramount Chief of Battle (Onekawan: Ariki Putakari) of the Royal Onekawa-Nukanoa Armed Forces, he invests his authority in the Chief of the Army (Onekawan: Rangitira Taua). At the moment this position is held by Atama Petera, who has responsibility for raising, training and sustaining the forces required to ensure the continued safety and protection of the sovereignty of Ngāti Onekawa-Nukanoa within the budget and parameters established by the civilian government.

The Royal Onekawa-Nukanoa Army is broken down into four main elements that report to the Chief of the Army; Army Force Command, Army Special Operations Command, Army Support Command and Army Reserve Command. Army Force Command is the primary combat command of the Royal Onekawa-Nukanoa Army, with both heavy mechanised divisions assigned too it. Army Special Operations Command is the other combat-focused command, responsible for both the Royal Onekawa-Nukanoa Parachute Rifles and Royal Onekawa-Nukanoa Naval Infantry brigades and the Royal Onekawa-Nukanoa Commandos. Army Suport Command is primarily an administrative command, responsible for the training and development in the Royal Onekawa-Nukanoa Army; whilst Army Reserve Command is responsible for the administration and maintenance of its three constituent reserve brigades.

Order of Battle

The Royal Onekawa-Nukanoa Army main combat force is comprised of eight active brigades; with three reserve brigades able to be called up if needed. Six of these brigades are intended for peer heavy conventional combined-arms warfare and heavily mechanised, these are assigned into two divisions; with two independent brigades that act as rapid reaction forces and equipped primarily as light or motorised infantry. The three reserve brigades can be raised and organised into their own independent division and are primarily a motorised force.

These mechanised brigades are either catergorised as cavalry or infantry brigades, in which the designation is determined by the ratio of armoured battalions to mechanised infantry battalions. Cavalry brigades have a 1:1 ratio of armoured battalions to mechanised infantry battalions, whilst infantry brigades have a 1:3 ratio for armoured to mechanised infantry battalions. Each division is comprised of one cavalry brigade and two mechanised infantry brigades.

The two independent brigades are the Royal Onekawa-Nukanoa Parachute Rifles and Royal Onekawa-Nukanoa Naval Infantry. Both of these units are intended primarily to operate as an rapid reactions forces focusing on deployment via either airborne/heliborne assaults or amphibious assaults respectively with the Royal Onekawa-Nukanoa Parachute Rifles acting primarily as light infantry; whilst the Royal Onekawa-Nukanoa Naval Infantry operating primarily as amphibious motorised infantry.
