History of the British Armed Forces

Historical Branches

The British Armed Forces have a long history of reform and restructuring, hence the large number of defunct and revitalised branches, and liquid rank structure.

Reserves

Little is known about the reserves by the current generation, and the branch can be seen as the first official UK military unit, which was founded some time in 2008. It is thought that this unit's first engagement was during the USA-Canada War. The Reserves was later split into the Royal Navy, Royal Guard and Royal Parachute Regiment (Paras).

The Royal Guard

Main article: The Royal Guard

The Royal Guard, alongside the Navy, was the oldest branch of the British Armed Forces. It was a territorial branch, lastly commanded by Brigadier CertaCito where at it's peak contained 5 companies of troops (each with 4 or 5 squads). The Royal Guard was decommissioned in the summer of 2009 due to inactivity and ineffectiveness.

The Royal Navy

Main article: The Royal Navy

The Royal Navy has been the senior, longest-serving & oldest, service of the British Armed Forces, springing to life after Operation French Toast in January 2009. At it's peak, it reached around 700 sailors & officers amongst seven fleets and 30 combat ships. Founded by Brigadier Hassan Pesaran, it was finally commanded by Admiral John F Baker, after which it was dismantled for Version 2 military reforms.

The Royal Marines

Main article: The Royal Marines

The Royal Marines was a sub-branch of the Royal Navy first commanded by Lieutenant General Tom Morgan. It later split off from the Navy to become its own branch as a middle-strength, high activity deployable branch. It was later merged with the SFSG in preparation for Version 2 military reforms.

The Royal Air Force

Main article: The Royal Air Force

The Royal Air Force was an experiment by the Minister of Defence, to provide a mid-ground for medium-strength troops before joining the Paras. It lived a short life of just over 1 month, and was commanded by Scipio The Great, Dan Fallows and widdows9000 all within this time. It was merged with the Paras mid 2010 due to economies of scale in commune production.

Royal Parachute Regiment

The Royal Parachute Regiment was the Special Forces branch of the British Armed Forces from November 2008 to November 2009. It was commonly and affectionately referred to as "The Paras", and was home to some of the greatest military men & women of the United Kingdom. It was decommissioned and merged with the Royal Marines to become the Special Forces Support Group. Its last commanding officer was Field Marshal Count Drakula.

Special Forces Support Group

The Special Forces Support Group was a merged branch of the Paras and Royal Marines, led by Generals Count Drakula and Horice G Fossil. It was the Special Forces branch of the British Armed Forces until version 2, when it was re-defined as the Special Air Service.

Special Air Service

Main article: Special Air Service

The Special Air Service was the special forces branch of the British Armed Forces for the duration of Version 2, commanded by General Count Drakula. It was decommissioned in June 2010 due to the decreasing population of the eRepublik world.

British Army

The British Army was formed as a result of V2 restructuring and reform, which saw the breakup of the Royal Navy into four sub-branches; one designated four each of the four weapon skills:

Later, after the erepublik weapon skills were merged, these units were reduced to two divisions:

Three other sub-branches existed for territorial, training and support purposes, at different times:

The Tri-Service Military

The British Army was reformed in January 2011 into the culturally separate, but functionally indifferent British Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force “tri-service”. The Brtish Armed forces continued to run in this way until October 2011 when it was streamlined into IRC active (British Army) and IRC inactive (Royal Navy later rebranded British Army Reserves) branches by Field Marshal Sir Mic.
