The Royalist Kingdom Ground Force (RKGF), commonly known as Her Majesty's Ground Force is the land armed forces of the Royalist Kingdom. The RKGF is administered by the Royal War Office from Longinus. It has been managed by the Ministry of Defense since 1883. Their Commander-in-Chief is the RK monarch, HM Queen Sophia and they are managed by the Defence Council of the Ministry of Defence. The Prime Minister holds de facto authority over the ground force. The primary mission of the Army is to:

"Provide necessary forces and capabilities in support of the National Security and Defense Strategies, preserving the peace and security, and providing for the defense, of the Royalist Kingdom, the Commonwealths and possessions, and any areas occupied by the Royalist Kingdom, supporting the national policies, implementing the national objectives, overcoming any nations responsible for aggressive acts that imperil the peace and security of the Royalist Kingdom."

The Royalist Kingdom Ground Force (RKGF) are charged with protecting the Royalist Kingdom and her Crown Colonies, promoting RK's wider security interests, and supporting international peacekeeping efforts. They are active and regular participants on peacekeeping missions and other coalition operations. The professional head of the RK Army is the Chief of the General Staff, currently Sir Henry West.

Formation and structureEdit

Operational

The major operational command is the Royal Central Command (HQ Goose Green) (following the amalgamation of Land Command and Headquarters Adjuntant General). It is split into divisions and subordinate units ranging from regiments to squadrons. The standard operational units are structured as follows, although various units have their own structure, conventions, names and sizes.

Type of Unit Division Brigade Battalion / Regiment Company / Squadron Platoon / Troop Section
Contains 2-3 Brigades 3-5 Battalions 5 Companies 3 Platoons Some Sections Individuals
Soldiers 25,000 1,000 500 100 30 8-10
Commanded by Major-General Brigadier Lieutenant Colonel Major Second Lieutenant, Lieutenant or Captain Corporal
Eoe tanks

Rentier LAVs 6x6 during the Battle of Yora Bora

Corps are made up of two or more divisions, but are now unlikely to be deployed as a purely national formation due to the size of the RKGF; e.g., the ARRC. In place of a Battalion, a task-specific Battlegroup may be formed.

A battlegroup is grown around the core of either an armoured regiment or infantry battalion, and has other units added or removed from it as necessary for its purpose. It results in a mixed formation of armour, infantry, artillery, engineers and support units, typically consisting of between 600 and 700 soldiers under the command of a Lieutenant Colonel.

A number of elements of the RKGF use alternative terms for battalion, company and platoon. These include the Royal Armoured Corps, Corps of Royal Engineers, Royal Logistic Corps, and the Royal Corps of Signals who use regiment (battalion), squadron (company) and troop (platoon).

The Royal Artillery are unique in using the term regiment in place of both corps and battalion, they also replace company with battery and platoon with troop. The RKGF operates alongside the Royalist Kingdom Air Force (RKAF) as part of a Joint Force, but the army also has its own Army Air Corps. Military helicopters of all three services are commanded by Joint Helicopter Command, a joint 10 star headquarters operating under HQ Land Forces.

Royal Grenadier CorpsEdit

The Royal Grenadier Corps are composed of the standard-issue infantry of the Royalist Kingdom Ground Force (RKGF)  and act as the back-bone of the Crown's ground projection over her respective foreign conflicts. As a highly professional and flexible organisation, are part of the Structure of the RKGF and come under direct order from the Royal War Office.

The Royal Grenadiers are a professional-capable force composed of highly-trained regular infantry, furthermore, acting as the primarly offensive capability of the Crown's ground arm. As the standard-issue infantry of the RKGF, the Royal Grenadiers perform a variety of roles, including armoured, mechanised, light role, special force, territorial and air assault with constant support from the Royal Gurkha Corps.

Gurkhas.Edit

As a professional unit from Nepal, the Royal Gurkha Corps as a long tradition of serviture to the Crown and her armed forces, specially serving as an special operation force of the RKGF characterized by his deadly force and agressive tactics against further enemies.

Therefore, an special branch exist, called the Royal Gurkha Rifles created in 1923 due to an special permanent contract signed by the Crown with the former Crown Colony of Nepal for a mutual military cooperation in order to assist Nepal on his deadly civil war against native groups.

Despite his numerical disparity, these units are a highly professional and a specialized military force that in particular are considered by some to be among the finest infantrymen in the world, as is evidenced by the high regard they are held in for both their fighting skill, and their smartness of turnout on parade. Current Gurkha units serve as a permanent military unit formed as a light infantry with the main duty of a constant military support for the Royal Grenadiers during combat.

1st King's Dragoon Regiment of Foot GuardsEdit

The 1st King's Dragoon Regiment of Foot Guards ­is an elite light infantry regiment of the Royalist Kingdom Ground Force (RKGF) and the senior infantry regiment, and therefore the oldest regiment of the line.

TALDOSS

Bramost APC

Bramost APC

The Bramost APC is designed to transport infantry with armor protection and introduced new aluminum armor that made the vehicle much lighter than earlier vehicles. Thick enough to protect the crew and passengers against small arms fire but light enough that the vehicle was air transportable and moderately amphibious. The armor consists in a 10.5-ton Bramost that was built of 5083 aircraft-quality aluminum alloy which gives it some of the same strength as steel at a slightly reduced weight, as the greater thickness allows structural stiffness. In terms of mobility its weight allows the use of a relatively small engine to power the vehicle, a 6V53 Detroit 2-stroke six cylinder diesel, with an Allison tx100-1 3 speed automatic transmission, and allows the vehicle to carry a large payload cross-country and to be transported by fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft. In terms of armor has an Aluminium hull with spaced laminate steel appliqué armor on the front and sides. The troop compartment is at the rear of the hull, a large power operated ramp allows access through the rear of the vehicle, a door is also provided in the ramp.

Saaazazafa
Javeline Block II ICBM mobile battery.

The Javeline Block II is a cold-launched, three-stage, solid-propellant, silo-based or road-mobile intercontinental ballistic missile.The missile's length is 22.7 m and the first stage has a body diameter of 1.9 m. The mass at launch is 47,200 kg, including the 1200 kilogram payload.

The Javeline battery carries six warheads with a 800 kt yield, the missiles can carry four to six warheads along with decoys. This mobile launcher is capable of moving through roadless terrain, and launching a missile from any point along its route

It is claimed to be capable of making evasive maneuvers to avoid a kill by terminal phase interceptors, and carries targeting countermeasures and decoys. It is shielded against radiation, EMP, nuclear explosions at distances over 500 meters, and is designed to survive a hit from any laser technology.

One of the Javeline's most notable features is its short engine burn time following take-off, intended to minimize satellite detection of launches and thereby complicate both early warning and interception by missile defense systems during boost phase. The missile also has a relatively flat ballistic trajectory, complicating defense acquisition and interception.
