Military Edit

Tionese Army Edit

Led by Commandant Ishmael McNeil, The Tionese Army is the sword and shield of Tion. Whether it is the defense of Confederate Territory, an aggressive raid on the enemies of the state, or the handling of a delicate diplomatic situation, the Tionese Army is ready to handle the job with finesse and power. Serving with distinction, the many Legions which make up the Army are stationed throughout the Federation, ever ready to leap into action in the defense of Tionese interests. This military machine, fueled by its numerous staff of dedicated officers and loyal Servicemen, has long been the harbinger of peace and justice throughout Tion and will be for a long time to come.

The 32,000 strong force is separated into 8 Legions of 4,000 men each as follows:

  • 1st Imperal Legion - Helsinki - 4000 Men
  • 2nd Imperial Legion - North Finland - 4000 Men
  • 3rd Imperial Legion - South Finland - 4000 men
  • 4th Imperial Legion - Murmansk - 4000 Men
  • 5th Imperial Legion - North Karelia - 4000 Men
  • 6th Imperial Legion - South Karelia - 4000 Men
  • 7th Imperial Legion - Novorossiysk - 4000 Men
  • 8th Imperial Legion - Reserves - 4000 Men

Tionese Navy Edit

Though the youngest, and least experienced of the CTAF, the Confederate Navy strives to grow from humble origins. Led by Admiral Richard Temmonen, the Navy is principally tasked with the regulation and protection of Tionese Trade, as well as Forward Recon and Transport.

Though currently boasting little Bluewater-capability, the TCN utilizes the vast civilian shipping capabilities of the Confederation, primarily with the Rukia-class Patrol Vessels, taken from Commercial Shipping Operations, to meet it's goals, in anticipation of the day when the first true Confederate Naval Vessels are commissioned.

Tionese Air Force Edit

Long a staple of the Tionese Military, the TAF is tasked with keeping the skies of Tion safe from harm. Focusing on Tactical superiority, the TAF uses the aged Yakolev Yak-9 and the MiG-15, as well as AH1 Cobra and Apache Attack Helicopters. CAF2 has one B17 in mothballs.
