United States Armed Forces
The United States Armed Forces consists of six units: the Special Forces,Seal Team 6, Rogue Squadron, Ultramarines, Air Force, and Flight Training. Together, they make up the official fighting force of the United States of America.
The collapse was a result of continued in-fighting between sections of the US government, particularly the US Military and the US Congress. Disagreement over the role of Congress in holding the military accountable led to a major change to the US Constitution following the March 2011 elections. The Joint Chiefs of Staff decided they did not like the new laws, and separated themselves from congressional oversight. Bradley Reala returned a single weeks worth of funding to the Congressional Budget Office, and declared that they no longer had to follow the Constitution.
The end result of the conflict came when newly elected President Emerick issued an executive order using the power of his office to dissolve the Joint Chiefs of Staff and current US military system and replaced it with a newly formed national military system known thereafter as the United States Armed Forces. The new military would thereafter operate under the direction of the US Department of Defense, eliminating the JCS as an official USA organization.
The Commander and Chief of the USAF is incumbent PotUS Evry. Evry's advisor and second in command of the USAF is Secretary of Defense Cerb.
The United States Armed Forces consists of five divisions:
- Flight Training is currently lead by Synesi. It is the training branch of the USAF.
- Air Force is currently lead by Roper 70. His second in command is Daz840. The Air Force is primarily a MPP fighting branch and the main body of the USAF and has troops in divisions 1 and 2
- Ultramarines is currently lead by Artella. Her executive officer is Henry Arundel (Pfeiffer). A branch that deploys and helps in MPP battles with lax structure and rules
- Rogue Squadron is currently lead by GoalieBCSC. His executive officer is Cerb. It is composed of Divisions 3 and 4.
- Special Forces is currently lead by Bockson. His executive officer is Rainy Sunday. The elite mobile unit of the United States Armed Forces Division 4 only
- SEAL Team 6 is currently lead by Sgt Rock who is helped by his two executive officers Maxx Johnson and Binda33. It primarily consists of Divisions 3 and 4
Former Divisions of the United States Armed Forces are:
- Boot Camp The former training branch of the USAF. Boot Camp is now Flight Training.
- Army The Former main fighting branch of the USAF. The Army is now the Air Force.
In order to avoid the previous troubles of the previous military, the President of the United States is the commander-in-chief of the US military, and has authority to choose when and where the military fights. The President is often aided by the opinions of his advisers, such as the Secretary of Defense, and other relevant and qualified persons. The United States Armed Forces is also sanctioned by the United States Congress, which allocates its funding. The control of the individual branches of the Armed Forces is usually relegated to their respective commanders, and the regimental and sub-regimental leaders that they appoint. The chain of command may vary somewhat between branches, with each branch leader having some limited autonomy in regards to branch-level policy, such as weapons distribution and member discipline.
Predating the United States Armed Forces, and every other large fighting force in the world, was the need for reliable and predictable distribution of food, weapons, and other military goods. While the logistical capability of the United States Armed Forces is ultimately constrained by the United States Congress, which determines its funding, and the United States economy at large, branch leaders have some control over the type of goods and services that their members receive. For example, Special Forces units may receive, per person, a higher number and quality of goods, while members of the Air Force may receive a much more standard load-out.
The branches of the United States Armed Forces are generally communal in structure. All fully active members are expected to contribute partially to the weapons and food that they receive. This generally entails working at a branch-owned company, rather than just any other company on the open market. In exchange for payment for their labor, members can expect a steady supply of weapons and goods on a daily basis. The theory behind this practice is that communes are much more effective at maximizing damage and supplying soldiers than simply allowing the soldiers to find their own jobs.
