Yugoslavia and Italy in game

Postby nathanieljr » Mon 12 Jan 2015 01:50

When I heard they were adding new nations in ALB one of my first thoughts was Yugoslavia; sadly it has not materialised even by this stage in RD. Equally, although a few items of Italian equipment are in game they do not feature their own nation.
Offering a mix of Western and Eurasian equipment, Yugoslavia would be an interesting addition to either faction. some interesting light naval craft, such as the Koncar class, new rocket artillery vehicles, a hispano armed BMP (because why not) and a few Soko aircraft patrolling overhead. What isnt to like?

Italy would offer lower cost alternatives to other Western units. The G. 91, SIDAM 25 AA, and Fiat 6614 would all allow light, fast, cheap forces to strike at the enemy. The Centauro and Dardo would be interesting fire support options, and the Ariete would bring the big guns while the Mangusta hovers overhead and the AMX Ghibli delivers some more cheap ordnance.

Of course, most of the rest of the equipment would be copy pastas from US and USSR lines, but that is the case with many nations anyway.

[Non/Future-nation] Mediterranean Force [Italy, Spain, Greec

Postby icehawk308 » Wed 14 Jan 2015 04:22

MEDFOR (Mediterranean Force) is an unofficial name for the NATO southern group of countries.

Nations included: Greece, Italy, Spain

Image

* Potentially Turkey could be included in the Alliance of the Periphery [AoP] as a block with Israel. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alliance_of_the_periphery
In this case Spain can complete the MEDFOR as a third party and [AoP] can serve as a dual coalition.
Israel TOE is included here. viewtopic.php?f=104&t=50251

This thread will be updated over the next little while to complete the respective countries TOE. Any help is appreciated. :idea:

Note: Turkey has been moved into the Israeli thread, renamed Alliance of the Periphery (AoP), link can be found in my signature.

Italy
Image

Similar to France in some ways, Italian industry has produced an interesting array of experimental vehicles. If utilized Italian TOE carries powerfull heavy autocannon equipped wheeled and tracked transports. OTOMATIC 76mm also makes an appearance, with Centauro wheeled tank destroyers making a very powerful motorized section.


Infantry

Carabinieri
Image
A flaming grenade (symbol of the gendarmerie)
The Carabinieri (formally Arma dei carabinieri, "Arm of carabineers" or previously "Corps of carabiniers";[1][2][3][4] Italian pronunciation: [ˌkäˑɾäbiˈnjɛːɾi]) is the national military police of Italy, policing both military and civilian populations. It originally was founded as the police force of the Kingdom of Sardinia. During the process of Italian unification, it was appointed the "First Force" of the new national military organization. Although the Carabinieri assisted in the suppression of opposition during the rule of Benito Mussolini, they also were responsible for his downfall and many units were disbanded by Nazi Germany, which resulted in large numbers of Carabinieri joining the Italian resistance movement. Since 2001, it has been one of the four Italian Armed Forces.

In game terms would make excellent paramilitary militia.

Col Moschin
Image
The 9º Reggimento d'Assalto Paracadutisti (9th Parachutist Assault Regiment) Col Moschin ("Moschin Hill") is a Special Forces unit of the current Italian Army — in part due to its distinguished history, but also due to the arduous training which members must undertake. Training takes no less than two years for long-term members, and five months for short-term volunteers (with 1–2 years total military service).

Roughly equivalent in number, tasking and quality to the world-famous British Army SAS, the 9th — or il nono as it is known in Italian military circles — is capable of operating in all environments. The roughly 150 members train in mountainous, wooded, desert, and amphibious terrain. The 9th's speciality is operating independently of outside support and far from friendly lines. From 2004, "Col Moschin" is integrated inside the Comando Forze Speciali Interarma (C.O.F.S.), Italy's special operations command.


Lagunari
Image
The Lagunari (from the Italian "laguna" = lagoon) are amphibious troops of the Italian Army. Today's Reggimento Lagunari Serenissima amphibious assault regiment has its headquarters in Mestre, a borough of Venice, and in the present day they are still subordinate to the Pozzuolo del Friuli Cavalry Brigade. The lagunari tend to be a very mobile attack force, high-powered weaponry, and tactical skills. They are trained to attack from the water and to establish a beachhead, which is an area of control on foreign territory.

Italian Marines.

Alpini
Image
The Alpini (Italian: alpine), are an elite mountain warfare military corps of the Italian Army. They are currently organized in two operational brigades, which are subordinated to the Alpine Troops Headquarters.

Established in 1872, the Alpini are the oldest active mountain infantry in the world. Their original mission was to protect Italy's northern mountain border with France and Austria. In 1888 the Alpini deployed on their first mission abroad, in Africa, a continent where they returned on several occasions and during various wars of the Kingdom of Italy. They emerged during World War I as they fought a three-year campaign on the Alps against Austro-Hungarian Kaiserjäger and the German Alpenkorps in what has since become known as the "War in snow and ice". During World War II, the Alpini fought alongside the Axis forces, mainly across the Eastern Front and in the Balkans Campaigns.

After the end of the Cold War, the Italian Army was reorganised in the 1990s. Three out of five Alpini brigades and many support units were disbanded. Currently, the Alpini are deployed in Afghanistan.

CENTAURO VBC [60/70 Turret]
This version is fitted with the two-person 60/70mm turret system originally developed as a private venture by Otobreda. The turret is armed with a 60mm 70 calibre gun fed by an automatic loading system which consists of two revolver type magazines, each of which holds eight rounds of ready-use 60mm ammunition. Typically, one magazine would contain high explosive ammunition with the other holding armour-piercing fin-stabilised discarding sabot ammunition. A 7.62mm machine gun is mounted coaxially with the main armament and a similar weapon can be mounted on the turret roof. The commander has a roof-mounted stabilised day/night sight while the gunner has a stabilised day/thermal sight incorporating a laser rangefinder. The commander has a monitor of the gunner's thermal sight. This vehicle has a crew of three - commander, gunner and driver - and can carry six fully equipped infantry. Combat weight is 24tons. Steering is power assisted on the first, second and fourth axles and a central tyre pressure regulation system is fitted as standard.

Another fire control computer was installed to give the M-109L a better chance of hitting a target in direct-fire mode.

Spain
Image

Spanish vehicle lineup relies on the BMR and later ASCOD series of vehicles. The Spaniards experimented with a large number of both variants and have a very standardized line of fighting vehicles. Spanish infantry shines with powerful ATGMs (Milan2 & TOW2-LWL) , machine guns with the CETME Ameli outperforming the FN Minimi and available as early as 82 as well as Incendiary rockets providing a Spetsnaz analogue!! An AGL team is also a possibility 8-)

Infantry

Civil Guard/ Guardia Civil
Image
The Civil Guard (Spanish: Guardia Civil; [ˈɡwarðja θiˈβil]) is a military force charged with police duties. Its members are colloquially known as benemérita (reputable man) derived from earlier less formal formations (much as British slang Bobby or Peeler derives from Robert Peel) It has both a regular national role and undertakes specific foreign peace-keeping missions. As a national police force, the Guardia Civil is comparable today to the French Gendarmerie, the Italian Carabinieri, the Portuguese National Republican Guard and the Dutch Royal Marechaussee as it is part of the European Gendarmerie. The Guardia Civil uses as its leading emblem the words "El honor es mi divisa" (Honour is my emblem), a motto emphasizing the unit's esprit de corps.

As Italian Carbineri, 5pt reservist team.

Spanish Legion/ Legión Española
Image
The Spanish Legion (Spanish: Legión Española, La Legión or colloquially El Tercio), formerly Spanish Foreign Legion, is an elite unit of the Spanish Army and Spain's Rapid Reaction Force. Founded as the Tercio de Extranjeros ("Foreigners Regiment"), it was originally intended as a Spanish equivalent of the French Foreign Legion, but in practice it recruited almost exclusively Spaniards and Spanish expatriates from Spanish-speaking countries. The legion and Paratrooper Brigade (BRIPAC) are considered quintessential elite units in the Spanish Army

Shock Lt Infantry.

Paratrooper Brigade/ BRIPAC
Image
The Paratrooper Brigade[1] (also known as the Airborne Light Infantry Brigade "Almogávares" VI or BRIPAC) is an airborne brigade of the Spanish Armed Forces forms part of the countries light infantry forces, called Black Berets.

Today is considered one of the quintessential elite units of the Spanish Army, along with the Spanish Legion.


Spanish Marines/Infantería de Marina
Image
The Spanish Navy Marines (Spanish: Infantería de Marina; lit, Naval infantry) is a corps within the Spanish Navy responsible for providing amphibious warfare from the sea utilizing naval platforms and resources. It is fully integrated into the Spanish Navy structure.

The Corps was formed in 1537 by Charles I of Spain (also known as Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor), making it the oldest marine corps in existence in the world, drawing from the Compañías Viejas del Mar de Nápoles.

With more marine focus & history over Italy, Spanish marines get the 15man shock infantry to complement Italy's 15man Mountain inf.

In Sepetember 1986 by the order of 362/19627 GOE "Levante" III changes its sign at GOE "Valencia" III with the history and traditions of the former Infantry Regiment "Valencia" No 23 is moved to the new base Rabasa Alicante. Members of this group are trained to fight guerilla, partisan struggle, the Marauder and sabotage activities, also an important part of the training include parachuting, fighting in winter conditions, underwater, training of explosive materials, methods of survival, climbing, fighting in extreme conditions etc. Special Operations Group "Valencia "III is subordinate command of special operations .

Tanks
M-47 1957
M-47E2 1981
The M-47E1 has the engine and transmission from the M-48A5. The M-47E2’s standard 90mm main gun has been replaced with a 105mm NATO gun


M-48A2 1970
M-48A5E1
The M-48A5E1 has a new computerized fire control system, with 70% commonality to the M-60A3’s fire control system. 164 of these remain in service.

M-48A5E2
The M-48A5E2 has this fire control system, and adds a laser rangefinder, passive IR vision for the commander, driver, and gunner, a more powerful engine, and an ability to lay a smoke screen by injecting diesel fuel into its exhaust. Smoke grenade dischargers are also added to either side of the turret.

M-48A5E3
The M-48A5E3 replaces the commander and gunner’s passive IR with thermal imaging, full stabilization for the main gun and coaxial machinegun, and a fire detection/suppression system.


AMX-30E 1974
AMX-30EM2 1989
This was the definitve Spanish AMX-30 upgrade. The powerpack was replaced by a MTU 833 Ka 501 850hp diesel engine coupled to a ZF LSG 3000 automatic transmission. The suspension was reinforced and upgraded to an improved AMX30B2 standard with thicker torsion bars, more wheel travel and new hydraulic shock absobers for a much improved ride. The new powerplant needed a new engine bay deck, and new rubber side skirts were installed to increase protection against HEAT charges.

The original electromechanical FCS was replaced by a Hughes Mk 9 A/D computerised fire control system with an integrated laser rangefinder coupled to a new thermal night vision system for commander and gunner. Initially only 75 vehicles received the thermal camera, the rest being fitted with (far cheaper) image intensification devices. Leter, all the vehicles received the thermal camera. The old coincidence rangefinder was retained to be used as a back-up in the case of laser failure. No main gun stabilisation was provided. A new APFSDS projectile was selected to replace the obsolete French HEAT round as the main anti-tank weapon.


[*]AMX 30EM2 SABBLIR 1993
Image
Empresa Nacional Santa Barbara (now General Dynamics-Santa Barbara Sistemas) started the development of reactive armor in the late eighties. In 1989 the first armour blocks were succesfully evaluated. The Spanish Defense Ministry contracted two up-armoured AMX30E prototypes, requesting protection against HEAT charges ranging from grenade launchers and guns up to 106mm to anti-tank missiles.

The then called SBBR (Santa Bárbara Blindaje Reactivo) reactive armour was mounted in two retired AMX30E MBTs and definitive trials were performed at Costilla Proving Grounds, Cadiz. Trials validated the size and configuration of the new armour modules, giving a protection level greater than expected. Later on, two operational AMX30EM2 MBTs were fitted with the full armour package and, on September 1993, handed over to the Calvary Academy at Valladolid for operational trials.

1987 was a critical year in the development of the Lince and in general for Spanish tank forces. It was during this year that:
The French Leclerc was offered for licence production and the right to export was also included in this offer.

Unidad de Operaciones Especiales/ UOE
Image
The Unidad de Operaciones Especiales (Special Operations Unit - UOE) was the elite special operations force of the Spanish Navy and Marines from 1967 to 2009. In June 2009, the unit was absorbed into the newly formed Naval Special Warfare Force (Fuerza de Guerra Naval Especial). The UOE, which was formerly garrisoned in the Tercio de Armada in San Fernando, Cádiz, operated under the direct control of the Admiralty and Naval Special Warfare Command. It was thought to comprise approximately 100 men organized into three Operational Teams (Estoles) as well as command and support personnel.

The UOE was tasked with Special Operations in maritime, coastal and inland environments usually up to 50 km from the sea, though this was not a restriction and its teams were known to operate deep inland. The unit's remit covered all aspects of modern Naval Special Warfare, including: Maritime Counter-Terrorism, shipboarding (MIO-Non Compliant), combat diving and swimming, coastal infiltration, airborne insertion, Special Reconnaissance, Direct Action, VIP protection and escort, and Combat Search and Rescue (CSAR).

For these purposes the UOE employed a wide range of naval and other military platforms, including submarines, frigates, soft- and rigid-hull inflatable boats, land vehicles, as well as helicopters and airplanes for airborne insertions.


Grupo de Operaciones Especiales/ GOE
Image
The Special Operations Groups (Spanish: Grupos de Operaciones Especiales, GOE) are the special operations forces of the Spanish Army.The Special Operations Group (GOE) are special operations units of the Spanish Army , called Green Berets . Initially mainly destined to combat guerrillas, but now their role is infiltration missions and recognition by any means for monitoring or observation or specific attacks, always in small groups (12-16 or so men) and always behind enemy lines.
