New Endralon hosts KEDA joint training
Image
New Endrolian CH-330 moving to the enemy positions

Säteni, New Endralon – A massive, multinational, combined-arms, live-fire exercise called Operation Blind Doom, lit up the Kizenian countryside in a show of force July 18, carrying out a KEDA goal to demonstrate joint strength.

By the end of nearly an hour, the hillsides smoked from the unleashing of artillery, mortars, rockets and fire from tanks and combat vehicles as well as helicopters and fighter jets from New Endralon, Trigunia, Dolgava and the newest KEDA member, Egelion

Last year the New Endrolian government decided that the Kerisian Defensive Alliance needed a revival. In cooperation with te other KEDA members they decided that there was a huge need of a military exercize.

Exercises like Blind Doom are designed to show the world what KEDA is capable of doing should an attack by a near-peer adversary occur. The Blind Doom is the largest exercise in Keris region this year, and it consists of more than 8,000 service members.

"Deterrence is about capability, it’s about making sure that any potential adversary knows that we are prepared to do whatever is necessary," Trigunian KEDA commander Lt. Gen. Anatolievich said during a news briefing following the exercise.

"What escalates tensions is when we look weak, not connected, not prepared, that is what invites aggression," Anatolievich said. "If we stay strong together then I think the possibility of any mistake is much, much lower. "

At Säteni at the Kizenian Joint National Training Center, heavy combat vehicles and powerful artillery weapons lined the hillsides and demonstrated that KEDA can operate together in challenging terrain and complex missions.

First Lt. Blaus, the platoon commander of a Dolgavian M109A5Ö battery, told the day before the big event on the hillside overlooking the terrain planned for the exercise that he saw this as a chance to show the world what KEDA has through an enormous display of fire power.

A total of 18 Dolgavian M109A5Ö howitzers lined the hillside together with 20 New Endrolian OTROM’s as preparation for the big day.

The exercise was based on a fictional scenario where Kerisian countries are attacked by a near-peer adversary with the same capabilities as KEDA nations "with the intention to gain control over the economic activities of the Sea of Deliverence region countries," according to the exercise’s script.

Action began with forces in tactical assembly areas as intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance assets as well as artillery radar searched for the enemy. Intelligence officers were able to pinpoint two enemy mechanized infantry battalions that had invaded territory under surveillance.

Intelligence forces identified enemy air defense units. Joint Dolgavan and New Endrolian artillery units, led by the 325th Artillery Battalion of New Endralon, coordinated the suppression of the enemy's assets using fires from New Endrolian Multiple Launch Rocket Systems and Dolgavian howitzers, that provided a window for friendly maneuver forces to advance.

Infantry quickly moved from the top of a ridge, downhill, taking position midway overlooking enemy forces on the next hillside and were quickly surrounded in smoke obscurant as a Egelion mortars team fired on the enemy to allow the infantry to advance.

As firing continued from M109A5Ö’s and OTROM’s, PF-15 jets dropped 100-kilogram bombs over the heads of the enemy. The jets came from New Endrolian Air Force Base Kirzona.

While the jets made passes, New Endrolian CH-330 puma helicopters flew in and fired at the enemy while a Trigunian infantry company with Bradley Fighting Vehicles, consisting of Egelion partners, as well as a Dolgavian infantry company, established strong points on the battlefield. Then Trigunian Mil Mi-24 attack helicopters joined in and replaced the CH-330 mission, firing from 30mm cannons and shooting rockets to destroy enemy combat vehicles.

A multinational armor company under Egelion command with one New Endrolian and one Egelion armor platoon, with Egelion Leopardo 2A6E tanks and upgraded New Endrolian KT-86M1 tanks, rolled in and continued to pressure enemy forces with a barrage of firepower. It was joined by a Trigunian air assault company and a New Endrolian air defense artillery company with Ergenu 32 short-range air defense systems to continue to suppress enemy forces.

The enemy then brought in its reserve forces reported to be advancing toward defensive lines. The multinational task force conducted a simultaneous fire attack on the enemy reserves "in order to hit the enemy all at once and cause shock and surprise," according to the script read allowed during the exercise.

A "torrential volley of destruction" rained down on the enemy, the Blind Doom announcer said over loudspeakers, resulting in "utter defeat."

KEDA Command,

First, thank you for the oustanding exercise in Säteni. We hope that future operations will only help us strengthen the bonds made.

The Dolgavan delegation to this conference believes that KEDA should be organized more along military lines than diplomatic lines.

The proposed Command Structure is shown below (subject to any modifications):

Chief Kerisian Commander (Elected every 8 years by the KEDA Command)
--Representative to the World Congress
--Alliance Administrative Corps
--Kerisan Special Operations Command (Combined Ground, Naval, and Air Forces)

General of Kerisian Ground Forces
--(Selected Staff members)
Admiral of Kerisian Naval Fleets
--(Selected Staff members)
General of Kerisian Air Wings
--Selected Staff Members)
(Each commander of the three branches listed above will from the three other nations in Keris that are not elected to Chief Kerisian Commander)

Here is also a slightly altered proposed version of the KEDA unit orgnization. For command purposes, we believe that the main comamands for the ground, naval, and air forces should be located in on city (Cetatea Albâ, New Endralon), to facilitate the administration of the organization. (OOC: Kinda like the Pentagon or the NATO command in Brussels).

-Ground forces Main Command: (Cetatea Albâ, New Endralon)
--Rapid Forces Division [Location: Changes Every two months]
----81st Mechanized Brigade
----814th Tank Battalion
----811th Infantry Battalion
----812th Infantry Battalion
----810th Infantry Battalion
----817th Artillery Battalion
----3rd Anti-aircraft Artillery Battalion
---405th Logistic Battalion
--Sea of Deliverence Rotational Force 1 [Location: Tuneculme, New Endralon]
--Sea of Deliverence Rotational Force 2 [Location: Kaiserburg, Trigunia]
--Western Rotational Force 3 [Location: Iknda, Dolgava]
--Eastern Rotational Force 4 [Location: Puerto del Sur, Egelion]

-Naval forces Main Command: (Cetatea Albâ, New Endralon)
--Naval Expenditionary Fleet 5 ("Starfish Fleet") [Harbored in Port Libertsk, Egelion]
--Naval Expeditionary Fleet 6 ("Pelican Fleet") [Harbored in Stâmoarte, New Endralon]
--Naval Expeditionary Fleet 7 ("Warthog Fleet") [Harbored in Vilssten, Dolgava
--Naval Expeditonary Fleet 8 ("Eagle Fleet") [Harbored in Novoadrinsk, Trigunia]

-Air forces Main Command: (Cetatea Albâ, New Endralon)
--Western Air Defence Force 10 [Location: Trigrad, Dolgava]
--Eastern Air Defence Force 11 [Location: Borianoburgo, Egelion]
--Western Air Wing 15 [Location: Aleksandrovsk, Trigunia]
--Eastern Air Wing 16 [Location: Matahi, New Endralon]

Notes: We propose that the listed units are only utilized during times of war or military exercises- afterwards, units return to their home country.
OOC: I'm fine with all the other proposal made to the structure of KEDA.

General Markuss Roberts, Dolgavan Armed Forces,

Thank you for your response. First of all, the command structure is not yet implemented, it is just a proposal.

Your proposed unit organisation is great and will be implemented ASAP. One thing to note is this:
We propose that the listed units are only utilized during times of war or military exercises- afterwards, units return to their home country.

We agree partly with this. While we agree that not all of the unit structures can be utilised all the time there is a need for some permanent units. Let me analyse our geopolitical situation. We, as Keris, have a big advantage, Keris is a group of islands. If a hostile state wants to attack us they will have to cross the seas to Keris. A state with an equal power compared to KEDA won't attack us simply because a landing operation is expensive and not effective. Only a stronger nation/alliance will dare to attack Keris. In such a case the landing will be the decisive part of the war. If the landing succeeds the war will be lost. During a landing the first days will be the most important of them all. KEDA can't send troops to the landingplace on such a short notice. Therefore we need some troops utilised all the time, especially in areas which are targets for landing operations, the east coast of Egelion and the west coast of Dolgava. Therefore we ask for atleast a limited activity of the Western Rotational Force 3 and the Eastern Rotational Force 4 combined with the Western Air Defence Force 10 and the Eastern Air Defence Force 11.

As for the command structure, we must admit that we did not really work out the military organisation. However, the diplomatic organisation is also important. We therefore have a new proposal outlined below. Note that the diplomatic sections (such as the Section for Macon) are very small, a few diplomats and and representatives and its done, while the military departements (such as the Section for Cyber Defence) are much bigger. There is just no point in writing all the sections under Cyber Defence.


Main Command of KEDA (Cetatea Albâ, New Endralon)
-Chief Kerisian Commander (Elected every 8 years by the KEDA Command)
--Deputy Kerisian Commander

--Military Departement
---General of Kerisian Ground Forces *
----(Selected Staff members)
---Admiral of Kerisian Naval Fleets *
----(Selected Staff members)
---General of Kerisian Air Wings *
----(Selected Staff Members)
---General of the Special Operation Forces
----Departement for Cyber Warfare
-----Section for Cyber Defence
-----Section for Cyber Attack
----Department for Joint Strategic Staff
-----Military Intelligence Service
----Department for General Development
-----Information Technology Office
-----Military Scientific Corps
*=Each commander of the three branches listed above will from the three other nations in Keris that are not elected to Chief Kerisian Commander

---Administrative and Diplomatic Departement
----Departement for International Relations
-----Section for Artania
-----Section for Macon
-----Section for Seleya
-----Section for Majatra
-----Section for Temania and Vascania
-----Section for Dovani
-----Section for Humanitarian Affairs and Services
-----Section for World Congress Policy
-----Section for International Initiatives and Incentives
----Department for Financial Management, Administration and Logistics
-----Material Management Division
-----Financial Management Division
-----Structural Organization Division
-----Alliance Administrative Corps
----Department for Security Policy
-----Section for International Defence and Security Policy
-----Section for Crisis Management
-----Section for Continental Security Policy

And we agree with you that it would be better to centralize all the sections in one city. But there are costs combined with such a decision. Spreading the departements would make it easier to just put the departements in an empty building in that city. Putting all in one city would mean that we should build a new building in Cetatea Albâ. Those costs should be spread out among the members of KEDA.
OOC: What kind of building should we choose?
The NATO headquarters would fit I guess as NATO is memberwise bigger than KEDA but we localise more departements in one building, while NATO spreads its departements everywhere.
Pentagon could work to but it isn't original to use and the building style doesn't fit the culture here.
The Russian Ministry of Defence main building is also a good option

Very well, Dolgava agrees with the administrative proposals.

The costs of the new buildings in Cetatea Albâ will be distributed amongst the KEDA members. If this becomes an administrative hassle, Dolgava believes that we should just revert our Ground, Naval, and Air Main Commands back to their respective cities.

Our Corps of Engineers have proposed this building for our KEDA HQ Command:

(OOC: The building is the Russain Ministry of Defense Building)

Besides the administrative details, Dolgava would like to know how regularly KEDA will be conducting military exercises.

OOC: When should be hold our first KEDA elections?

The building looks good. We will ask the other members of KEDA if they agree. (OOC:If they don't respond I will just assume that they agree)
If they agree we will build ASAP.

KEDA will hold every half year excersizes with all the units in the unit list. Furthermore, the KEDA command can call for more excersizes if they feel there is a need for another excersize. These will be held if the members which are involved agree. (OOC:I won't post the half year excersizes, that would be too much work. I can post about those other excersizes.)

(OOC: About those elections, how should we do them? If every member has one vote I can predict what the results would be. One vote for every commander running for election... I would suggest deciding it with a dice who will be the commander and who will be the generals. Although I don't know how I should make them so that I can't cheat and make my nominee the commander... I gues you wil just have to trust me :D Or we could ask a mod to roll a dice. Another way would be to rotate it every 8 years. Alphabetical the first commander would be Dolgavian, then Egelion, New Endralon and Trigunia.)

Sorry, but we don't understand the motivation to create a Administrative and Diplomatic Departement. Egelion wants to have total independence in its diplomatic relations with any country and we do not find it appropriate to create a Diplomatic Department. We understand KEDA as a union and military coordinator between countries, exclusively.

If it's not the sense of the KEDA we think that we're wrong. Or it's possible that we don't understand the really sense of this Department. Therefore we request a clarification of the purpose of said Department.

On the other hand. More than an election in KEDA we believe it necessary to create a Council with a representative from each of the nations involved.

Thank you and Regards

Agustina Caballero
Primera Ministra de Egelion.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Trigunian Federation, and Member of the Foreign Affairs Commission of the State Duma of the Trigunian Federation, Otto Oldenberg:
We agree to the proposal to construct such building to house the Kerisian Defensive Alliance HQ, as well as election to the posts in the leadership of KEDA, but my agreement to the use of armed forces else falls out of my responsibilities and jurisdiction - that lies in the hands of the President and/or the State Duma. Thank you.

Honorable Primera Ministra de Egelion, Agustina Caballero

Thank you for sharing your concerns. Let me explane the need for such diplomatic divisions. First of all, the diplomatic division does not negotiate for any agreements. Your country still has sovereignity and independence over its diplomatic policies. The diplomatic departement will consist of around 1 KEDA representative in every country. Those representatives will be there to warn other nations about future exercises and to answer questions about the organisation and its plans. I hope this answers your concerns.

Honorable Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Trigunian Federation, Otto Oldenberg

Thank you for your response. As all the countries have had the time to express their opinions about the new headquarters so we will build the building now. We hope that a party in Trigunia will propose a bill ASAP which will approve the use of your military forces.

Respectfully,
KEDA Command
