Section 1: Budget – Fiscal Year 2008 As outlined by the Financial Affairs Commission, the budget for ODEFOR and ODEFLE combined comes to exactly $4,235,488,863,220 for the Fiscal Year 2008. In order to accurately gauge the percentage of this funding which goes to either ODEFOR or ODEFLE, it is necessary to establish the needs of each organization. While ODEFLE receives equipment in the form of ships and weaponry from each member state individually, ODEFOR, in the interest of uniformity, must purchase its equipment from military suppliers, and so must allocate much of its funding to this purpose. Therefore, it is the opinion of the Military Affairs Commission that ODEFOR be granted 35% of the ODECON treasury, the remaining 15% going to the needs and requirements of training ODEFLE personnel, as well as any currently unforeseen requirements. This 35% will be sufficient to cover the needs of equipment purchases, upkeep of equipment, training, and supply. The exact amount of recommended ODEFOR funding comes out to $2,964,842,204,254. Section 2: Personnel While under ODECON law each member state must pledge exactly one hundred thousand combat troops to ODEFOR, the organization also employs a large number of civilian and military logistics personnel, as outlined below. As the Supreme Military Overseer hails from the Federal Republic of Leistung, Leistung has elected to increase ODEFOR combat personnel to 325,000, a move which is encouraged, but not required, of other willing member states.

Note that because ODEFOR Headquarters is located in Hauptstadt, Leistung, the vast majority of civilians working on-site are of Leistungi origin, though small numbers of foreign workers are also employed.* Civilian personnel perform mundane tasks including (but not limited to) janitorial duties, tech support, nourishment of on-site personnel, secretarial work, and medical advisement. *ODEFOR is an equal opportunity employer.

Logistics and combat personnel have been (theoretically) drawn from national militaries, though the process has not yet reached completion, and foreign logistics personnel have yet to be recruited at this time. At the moment, only Leistungi military forces have been drawn upon to fulfill logistical duties, which should be sufficient for the time being. Five hundred thousand logistics personnel from each member state are planned to be called on in the immediate future. Section 3: Combat Organization ODEFOR is a regiment-based fighting force, built around the idea of a flexible yet powerful unit which can be repositioned quickly to meet the demands of a changing battlefield. This unit (the regiment) is made up of varying numbers of combat personnel, further divided into battalions capable in engaging hostile forces practicing the strategies of guerrilla warfare, symmetrical warfare, or even chemical or biological warfare. ODEFOR doctrine currently calls for infantry, mechanized infantry, armor, artillery, logistics, and airborne regiments. Infantry Regiment The infantry regiment is built around a two battalion uncounted infantry core, supported by a light recon element of LY219 Mobile Guns, a support battalion, and a field artillery battalion of thirty-two M777 howitzers. Each infantry battalion is made up of a headquarters company, four rifle companies, and a single special weapons company with anti-tank, mortar, and heavy machine gun elements. The support battalion is comprised of a signals company, an engineer company, a medical corps, a logistics company, and five forward support companies. Mechanized Infantry Regiment The mechanized infantry regiment is the most numerous in ODEFOR, comprised of three mounted infantry battalions, a light recon element, a field artillery battalion, and a support battalion. Each mounted infantry battalion is made up of a headquarters company and three mechanized companies, while the recon, artillery, and support battalions are nearly identical to the standard infantry regiment’s battalions. Armored Regiment The armored regiment is the fist of ODEFOR, consisting of three combined arms battalions, a field artillery battalion, and a support battalion. The combined arms battalion is a flexible formation of one headquarters company, two mechanized companies, two tank companies (55 LY6A1’s), and a combat engineer company. The support and artillery battalions are identical to the standard infantry division’s battalions. Artillery Regiment The artillery regiment is made up of two light recon battalions, three field artillery battalions (with four batteries of 6 M777’s each), two self-propelled artillery companies (LY300 MLRS), and a support battalion. The support battalion is identical to other support battalions, while the

light recon battalions are comprised of three forward observer companies each, mounted in LY83 multirole 4x4’s. Logistics Regiment As the backbone of ODEFOR, the logistics regiment supports the other regiments in ammunition and mobility duties. It is comprised of eight sustainment battalions and a support battalion. The sustainment battalion is made up of a headquarters company, a quartermaster company, three support companies, and a maintenance company. These eight battalions are capable of supplying forward troop movements and the overall supply of the division, and can be reconfigured to a number of roles should the need arise. Airborne Regiment The airborne regiment is made up of two heavy attack battalions, an assault battalion, and a support battalion. The heavy attack battalions is comprised of three attack helicopter companies (8 AH-85A helicopters), and three transport companies of 6 UH-96G helicopters. The assault battalion is meant for high-intensity transport and utilizes three companies of 6 CH-105E helicopters to drop large numbers of troops into hot zones. The support battalion is identical to others, but also incorporates a Medevac element of 16 UH-96G helicopters.

Section 5: ODEFOR Equipment ODEFOR soldiers are equipped with a mix of Aequetian and Lyran vehicles and weaponry, as detailed below. The funds for purchasing said weaponry is taken directly from the ODEFOR budget, as outlined by the Financial Affairs Commission. Category

Section 6: Peacetime Duties If ODEFOR soldiers were intended only for wartime duties, the organization would be a massive drain on the budget for only occasional use. Rather, ODEFOR infantrymen are cross-trained to guard locations where ODECON treasury funds are held, and should they be required to, they can function as marines to serve on ODEFLE vessels. Though only roughly 2% of ODEFOR’s total manpower function as security personnel, it is still a necessary function and ODEFOR infantrymen often prove much better trained than civilian security sevices.

Section 7: Air Support The ODEFOR air support wing is an integral part of land operations, but is relatively small, especially since helicopter support operations are covered by the land wing. In addition to air support, the air wing also fills a crucial logistical role, transporting men and equipment across the sea and land to reach the front lines. The role of air support is centered on the idea of the air Group, which fills a specialized role in the ODEFOR Air Force. Air Support Group A single Air Support Group contains four flight wings, four maintenance squadrons, and a headquarters section to coordinate the Group’s actions. The flight wing consists of twelve squadrons of eight FA 15 Cardinal air superiority fighters, while the maintenance squadron consists of twelve ground support groups to support each flight wing’s squadrons. Air Transport Group The Air Transport Group consists of a similar structure as the Air Support Group, with three flight wings, three maintenance squadrons, and a headquarters section. Each wing contains twelve squadrons of five tactical airlifters (C-199A “Sampson”), ten squadrons of five strategic airlifers (C-181A “Starlifter II”), or eight squadrons of four superheavy airlifters (C-225B “Cossack”). Air Logistics Group An Air Logistics Group is made up of varying types of support planes, but it always consists of four flight wings, four maintenance squadrons, and two headquarters sections (the management role is split in an ALG). In one scenario, the four wings are formed into refuel wings with fourteen squadrons of three KP-191D “Starkeeper” each. In another, the four wings are reconfigured to a medical evacuation wing with ten squadrons of C-199A “Sampson’s.” The most common variation, however, is the ammunition/fuel resupply wing, with twelve squadrons of five C-181A “Starlifter II’s.” Unforeseen requirements are able to be covered by simply reconfiguring the wing and bringing in new planes, though this generally does not happen in the interests of crew training.
