The Confederate States Armed Forces are the military forces of the Confederate States of Floria and were established after post War of Lost Brothers treaty restrictions were unilaterally revoked by the Florian government in 1672 AN. It consists of an Army, Navy (including marine infantry & a coastguard service), and Air Force. The Confederate States Armed Forces is the successor of the Florian Security Force. The President of the Confederate States is the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces. From the modest cadre in existence on the date of the armed forces refoundation, the Florian Armed Forces have experienced sustained growth in terms of both manpower and equipment from 1676 onwards, having benefited from an exponential increase in investment following the culmination of Florian reconstruction efforts earlier in the decade.

The Confederate States Armed Forces provides, as of 1689, the largest individual national force contribution to Apollonia Command, and from 1700 AN became the lead nation for the Raspur Pact's forces on the continent of Apollonia.


1711 Act

In 1711, the Florian Government announced that all branches of the Confederate States Armed Forces would be revamped to more modern standards and less reliant on equipment produced by fellow Raspur Pact allies. This meant a unified standard issue of firearms throughout the three armed services. The M1525 9 mm Pistol remained the pistol of choice for officers however other Allied Production Matrix units were discontinued in favour of more recently Florian-designed weapon systems such as the FLO-57 SMG and SA1680 rifle weapon system. The SA1680 was chosen in favour as the standard issue weapon system for soldiers since it could be converted into carbine and LSW forms. "Cherry Pickers" remained the marksman rifle of choice however the use of LR06 has become more popular. Support/Logistics vehicles were considered extremely outdated and were to be replaced immediately.

The training of armed forces personnel was also vastly improved and ration packs were revamped for better operational effectiveness as during Operation Python logistics became an issue.

Global influence and introduction of Project 1727

With vastly improved training and better investment into equipment, it became clear that Floria had truly learned from its failures experienced from its earlier conflicts in history. Because of this Floria has kept its throne as the lead nation of the Apollonia Command despite being out populated and outmanned than the Kildarian territory of Shireroth. Floria’s long-awaited presence on the continent of Eura was felt during the Kapavian insurgency when Florian troops made a semi-permanent base called Camp Trident to assist Euran forces Raspur Pact aligned or not against cells of the Babkhan Restoration Movement.

The Florian Government once again reviewed the armed forces and came to the conclusion that the military was still lacking in some areas such as artillery, small arms, and armoured vehicles. Therefore Project 1727 was launched, the most ambitious military development project ever done by the Government with the aim of Floria having the most advanced military force in all areas by 1727.



The Confederate States Armed Forces comprises of three independent service branches - the Florian Army, Florian Navy, and the Florian Air Force, brought together under the authority of the War Office in Northcliff with the President serving as Commander-in-Chief.


The Confederate States Armed Forces are divided into four operational commands, these being Army Group East & Army Group West, Fleet Command, and the Home Army.

Florian Navy

A naval expansion programme commenced in 1707 AN as the Florian incorporation of Port Balaine into the Confederate States combined with the Çakari occupation of Thraci holdings changed the strategic balance of power in the Norfolk Isles. To ensure that the Florian maritime trade could not be throttled by a future naval blockade of the vulnerable coast by Çakaristan, the Maritime Armada of the Raspur Pact deployed a fleet to Port Balaine.

Whilst this would suffice in the interim, it would also be necessary for Floria to build up a blue water fleet of its own, expanding upon a navy that had previously focused upon coastal defence, the provision of a coastguard service, and the maintenance of a small colonial squadron. To this end naval commissioners were sent out to the shipyards of the Raspur Pact, especially of Natopia and New Alexandria to identify ship-classes likely to meet the needs of the Navy, whilst at the same time, officials toured the ports of the Florian South so as to identify the domestic shipbuilding capacity capable of sustaining the production of corvettes and auxiliary vessels.

Static defences

Given Floria's unfavourable strategic position, the War Office's categorical imperative was to harden the national infastructure against attack and establish defensive lines so as to ensure that the country could not be swiftly divided and overrun by any putative invader.

One of Floria's great strengths was its famously overactive construction industry, and the national familiarity with pouring concrete in vast quantities was duly leverged in the cause of national defence.

Frontier defensive zones

Starting in 1679, the Florian Army commenced a programme of "bunkerisation" that saw the construction of hundreds of thousands of bunkers in a belt of fortifications 72km in depth and running parallel to Floria's border with Jingdao, screening Floria's primary western population centres and the tenuous land corridor connecting Las Andreas with Port Farrar in the east.

Within the fortification belt constituting the frontier defensive zone bunkers would be installed in every viable location from hilltops and woodlands to villages and towns, even in such incongruous locations as hospital car parks and regional post offices.

The bunkers were constructed of concrete, steel and iron and ranged in size from one- or two-person pillboxes with gun slits to large underground nuclear bomb shelters intended to serve as Corps command headquarters. The most common type of bunker was a small concrete dome set into the ground with a circular bottom extending downwards, just large enough for one or two people to stand inside. These domes were prefabricated and transported to their final positions, where they were assembled. They consist of three main elements: a 3 m diameter hemispherical concrete dome with a firing slit, a hollow cylinder to support the dome and an outer wall with a radius 60 cm larger than the cylinder. The gap between the cylinder and outer wall is filled with earth.
