The New RAF

The RAF was again reformed in June, the RAF stayed much the same with most changes to the command structure with now a Commander in Chief and two possible Commanding Officers. The two squadrons of the RAF were ditched and merged, removing the need for lower staff. Octavian Ratstrangler continued as Commander in Chief after the reforms, choosing to take on Lord Matthew Russell as his Executive Officer. Later, Octavian Ratstrangler stepped down from command allowed Lord Matthew Russell to take over as Commander in Chief alongside GermanStar258 as his Executive Officer.

History of the RAF

January Reforms

The RAF was reactivated on the 27th January 2011 after the British Armed Forces underwent major structural reforms, which brought into effect a tri-service organization of the RAF, Royal Navy and British Army as separate branches, in addition to the United Kingdom Special Forces. RAF become comprised of two squadrons.


The original RAF was formed in July '09 to provide a middle branch between the Navy and Paras. Once previous soldiers graduated from the Royal Guard or Royal Navy, the RAF helped train them to progress to the Paratroopers. However, it was later merged into the Paras for ineffectiveness.
