Posted (edited)

[//OOC: I expect most people to glance at the short version. This is the version for really dedicated people who WANT a lot of detail, it is the full write up I've put together for the Chernarussian Defense Forces. Yes it is huge. It also contains information like the structure and offices in the military and government, giving you ideas if you want to play other sorts of involved characters, or you simply want to see how these different branches are related. It also goes more in-depth in details of function and other things. I'm not expecting most people to look at it, but for those of you that do, I hope you enjoy it.  -Rogue]]

A History of the Chernarussian Military, Military Professionalism, and Values

While these quotes speak of the Czech Republic, they are also the same values for us, as we came from the same people.

"For an officer of your category, it is necessary to have high military culture...by combining the talent of a soldier-expert with the separate gift of a high spirit and general culture...A military officer must also understand all aspects of our political and public life."

                                                                                                                                                                                                            by President Eduard Beneg        

 (In his speech to the graduates of the Czechoslovak Military War College on June 22, 1936.)  [Hrdina 2005]


“The legionaries were perceived in the society as "the men who did their most difficult duty during the

most difficult times," 31 because they fought for their country in World War I even if they did not know whether they would have any country after the war. Had Austro-Hungary survived the war as a state, which could not be fully excluded in the course of war, the legionaries would have been labeled as "traitors." This explains why the newly established Czechoslovak military fully embraced the moral values and spiritual heritage of the legions.” [Hrdina 2005]


The Military of Chernarus is based from routine and principles stemming from our Slavic ancestors. In the current day, our military most resembles the Czech Republic

Due to how the military and government operate differently, soldiers have a very different view in the lives of the everyday person than usually seen around the world. Serving in the military is an honor, and soldiers are shown respect by the people. In return, the soldiers do not look down upon the people, or bully them. The citizens feel they can trust their armies, and the soldiers the people. 

Military professionalism is deeply installed into soldiers to a point that even if very turbulent times, there were very few attempts at coups. The only ones on record were by very small groups that were quickly ended. Ideals for the Chernarussian military are not in a type of government or leadership, but in superiority of education and learning. We have deeply honored traditions of our people and heritage, and we are taught to have both steeled discipline, and high spirits.


Merging with the USSR left a lot of officers and soldiers feeling extremely demoralized and betrayed by their government for having so easily given up their liberty. Even with the angered and disgruntled soldiers, the military remained loyal to its people and government. When the USSR came into the country, many military troops and officers refused to support USSR soldiers and frequented anti-occupation demonstrations.

Chernarussian communists found it nearly impossible to follow Marxism totalitarianism laws. They ended up attempting to eradicate the idea and instead develop a Marxist based military ideology, which ultimately failed.

Relations became more complicated as the USSR military made large scale attempts to infiltrate the Chernarussian military to gain control over it. But due to the troops and officers core values of being non-political, the attempted coups catastrophically failed. Communist leaders used politics to rile and control most militaries but failed with the Chernarussian army because we were non-politically based and would not act quickly or illogically. Using logic and figuring out what was needed instead of hasty action, we in turn rendered the communist leaders’ efforts of sabotage entirely useless. This in turn forced a large rift between the Soviet government and the Chernarussian military. 


In retaliation, the USSR put groups like the secret police in charge of more militant duties, as well as allowed Stalin to solve his dilemma another way; The Great Purge. 

During this horrifying time in history, 90% of Chernarussian military members were arrested, tortured until they confessed to false statements, and were quickly executed along with their families for treason. Stalin replaced all of them with his followers, including putting in place rules that only Communist Party members could be officers, thus keeping the military leadership firmly under his control. 

 While we faced catastrophic losses during that time, the people who lived remembered. Forces in France, Italy, Russia, North Africa, and in the Soviet Union were able to remember and keep our traditions and practices. Our military has always been a huge part of our culture, and while it was difficult, many people had been raised with those concepts, and refused to allow the Soviets to force them to forget. Once we claimed ourselves again as an independent Republic, we again claimed the military system of our true lineage.


Since then, we have worked hard to stabilize, regrow, and modernize our armies. Though hard work, countless hours, determination, discipline, and loyalty, we have been accepted as our own military force again by the rest of the world. While not a large army, we have in recent years had many collaborative efforts involving training and operations involving military forces from around the world including; Dutch, Germany, Iran, Israel, Republic of Chernarus, The United States, Norway, England, South Korea, France, and Russia. 

The Chernarussian military does not value a sort of government or leadership above another, if it treats its people well, and allows the military its independence. The Chernarussian military has survived this long due to not allowing politics to pollute its ideals and values. True Chernarussians do not perceive nor pride its military strength based on the ability to simply fight, but rather its intelligence. A soldier is not praised simply by his strength in battle, but in how quickly he retains important information, how creative his response in dealing with a problem is, and his execution of tactics, actions, and position of troops to remedy the situation. 

Our soldiers have worked hard in earning their place in the world and catching up to modern technology and systems. While we are still working hard to continue to advance in society and technology, we couldn’t be prouder of the determination and dedication of our soldiers who have gotten us this far.

The Chernarussian Defense Forces


The Chernarussian Defense Forces consist of:

Chernarussian Air Force

Chernarussian Armed Forces

Chernarussian Navy

Chernarussian Special Forces

Chernarussian Military Police



The Chernarussian Defense Forces assume the following roles:

[OOC: This section is a direct copy of “The White Paper of Defence”, with words switched out regarding areas. Example instead of Czech, it has been changed to say Chernarus.Czech Republic: The White Paper on Defence 2011” https://www.eda.europa.eu/docs/default-source/documents/whitepaperondefence2011_1.pdf]


i. defending the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Republic of Chernarus;

participating in collective defense of territories of the United Nations allies;

 ii. international cooperation;

 iii. supporting civilian bodies.

 3.4 Defense can be conducted in two basic modes depending on the situation:

 In an armed conflict where the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Republic of Chernarus is endangered, while defending either its own territory or the territory of nearby allies, the state of war is declared. In terms of its organizational structure and command & control arrangements, the Ministry of Defense is transformed to a wartime organization. The Republic of Chernarus transfers its forces and equipment earmarked in UN defense planning under the authority of the designated bodies of the Alliance.


The General Staff of the Chernarussian Armed Forces retains the command authority over those forces which have not been moved under the allied command. The Chernarussian Armed Forces support their own units deployed in operations while engaging in preparatory activities for defending the Chernarussian territory and receiving military support from UN allies. Military bodies assume the responsibility for running air traffic control within the Republic of Chernarus airspace.

 The Republic of Chernarus does not necessarily have to declare a state of war for the defense of a remote territory of an allied state. In such an event, forces and equipment earmarked in UN defense planning are transferred under the authority of the designated UN bodies. 

 The Chernarussian Armed Forces support their own units deployed in operations, continue in conducting activities in their peacetime establishment and implement the planned preliminary measures to prepare for elevated alert levels. Situations of low intensity threats against the Chernarussian territory can be dealt with by the armed forces either by themselves or with UN support.


Functions in International Cooperation

3.5 The Chernarussian Armed Forces cooperate with foreign military forces by the authority of international agreements. Furthermore, they participate in various activities to support peace and security, especially in international operations and missions.

 3.6 Based on analyses of the strategic environment, the participation in international crisis response operations will present the most probable form of the Chernarussian Armed Forces´ combat employment in the near future, both inside and outside UN/EU states. Whether gradual or simultaneous, the missions will include the following operations: peacemaking, peace support and peacekeeping, post-conflict reconstruction, stabilization of state authorities and assistance in

introducing the rule of law.

 3.7 Crisis response operations are usually complex, thus calling for political, civilian and military measures and instruments. An operation is often characterized by interconnected missions with varying degree of intensity of combat phases. Enemies usually apply asymmetric methods of fighting, and the boundaries between combat zones and civilian areas often disappear.


3.8 Peacemaking operations are conducted without the consent of conflict parties. Their aim is to make the hostile parties terminate combat actions, cease violence against civilians, and deactivate their armed forces. The Chernarussian Armed Forces transfer their capacities, together with those capabilities that

are functionally appropriate to the character, environment and intensity of the conflict, under the authority of the designated bodies of the Alliance in such a scope as declared in the Political-Military Ambitions of the Chernarussian Republic, while supporting their operational activities. Similar procedures are applied in conducting operations led by the EU or an ad hoc coalition.

 3.9 Peace support or peacekeeping operations are usually conducted with the consent of the parties in question. Their aim is to prevent a conflict from arising or escalating, monitor activities of opposing armed forces, prevent them from initiating or resuming combat actions, committing violence against civilians and to achieve a gradual stabilization and restoration of peace in the area. As declared in the Political-Military Ambitions of the Republic of Chernarus, the Chernarussian Armed Forces contribute their forces and equipment under the authority of the designated bodies of the Alliance and support their operational activities.

 3.10 International operations can include assistance in evacuation of civilians, alleviating or coping with the aftermath of disasters, humanitarian operations or search and rescue operations.

 3.11 As a part of missions in international operations, the Chernarussian Armed Forces can also be engaged in reshaping or building a local defense sector through mentoring and training of the local armed forces.


3.12 In today’s evolving security environment of complex operations, the objectives cannot be achieved merely by military instruments. The Chernarussian Armed Forces are able to coordinate their activities with other actors involved in responding to a crisis situation, primarily with civilian governmental and non-governmental organizations.

 3.13 The Chernarussian Armed Forces have appropriate capabilities to accomplish their missions in cooperation with the above-stated actors. The complexity of operations and the variety of actors cooperating in different phases of operations necessitate a flexible and multitasking approach from the deployed elements of the Chernarussian Armed Forces.

 3.14 The Chernarussian Armed Forces initiate the cooperation with other actors, if possible, already in the planning phase of operations.

 3.15 Various forms of cooperation between the units of the Chernarussian Armed Force’s and a local population can become a part of missions being accomplished in crisis response international operations outside UN and EU territories. During the period of deployment in an environment culturally distinct from that of UN/EU, the deployed personnel shall respect its specific features.

 3.16 The Chernarussian Armed Forces personnel can also participate in civilian operations and monitoring missions led by international organizations.


Functions in Supporting Civilian Bodies

 3.17 The Chernarussian Armed Forces can be used to support the Integrated Rescue System,

i.e. in case of natural disasters, industrial accidents and other emergencies, including immediate rescue activities and subsequent clearing works.

 3.18 The forces and equipment are used as available to assist civilian entities in coping with a crisis situation, both in the homeland territory and abroad as a part of international rescue and humanitarian operations. When needed, the Chernarussian Armed Forces deploy primarily medical, engineering and CBRN defense units or their segments equipped with required capabilities. Units of the Active Reserve may be called up and deployed as well.

 3.19 Apart from the aforementioned situations, the Chernarussian Armed Forces can be used for guarding the assets critical for national defense, reinforcing the Chernarussian Police to protect the state border or acting as riot police or protective service.

 3.20 The Chernarussian Armed Forces can also be used to provide air transport for national officials, medical airlift, and transports as required by the Government as well as to support cultural, educational, sports and social events. Furthermore, they can be employed in other contingencies endangering lives, health, property of large-scale value or the environment in situations when only the armed forces can provide suitable equipment for fighting the danger.


Security Threats and Risks

 2.26 Based on the specification of today’s strategic environment, the potential threats and risks that may harm the Chernarussian security and defense interests are as follows:

 political extremism and its manifested forms (mainly terrorism), mass riots, and sabotage activities;

  • proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and their delivery systems and their potential use;
  • cybernetic attacks;
  • disruption of critical infrastructures (e.g. communication, transport, energy);
  • interruptions in supply of strategic raw materials;
  • weakening of international organizations and institutions that are crucial for the Republic of Chernarus security, especially the North Atlantic Alliance and the European Union;
  • endangering the functioning of mechanisms and institutions of cooperative security, and arising of disputes among world powers;
  • regional political, economic, social, environmental and demographic instability;
  • creation of areas of influence through political, economic and military pressure;
  • regional and local conflicts within the Euro-Atlantic area and its near abroad, including long-lasting unsolved conflicts;
  • breakdown of state authorities in conflict-afflicted areas and the emergence of failed states;
  • mass illegal migration;
  • organized crime;
  • humanitarian disasters regardless of their causes;
  • natural disasters and industrial accidents.


 2.27 The threat of terrorism as a method of enforcing political goals through violence remains high. It is characterized by the existence of transnational networks of loosely interconnected groups sharing, even without a unified command, ideology, goals and plans to achieve them as well as financial resources and

information to increase their destructive potential.

 2.28 Some state and non-state actors strive both openly and secretly to possess weapons of mass destruction. Their proliferation can bring serious security consequences to citizens of UN and EU member countries.


2.29 The possibility of the use of ballistic missiles, with either conventional or unconventional warheads, presents another specific threat. Their ability to hit the territory of the Republic of Chernarus or its allies puts a high demand on adopting both active and passive countermeasures.

 2.30 The trend of increased dependence on information technologies and complex communication systems leads to a higher vulnerability of society and the state. Attacks against the information and communication infrastructure (cybernetic assaults) present a new method of warfare, but they can also imply criminal motives. Massive cybernetic attacks can have a negative impact on the functioning of the society and the state, including its security components.

 2.31 Transport and energy networks represent additional important parts of the state’s critical infrastructure. Political pressures and criminal threats, including politically motivated manipulations with deliveries of strategic resources, sabotages or economic criminality, can jeopardize energy infrastructure.

 2.32 Ethnic and territorial conflicts, which may develop in the vicinity of Europe, endanger the broader regional stability. These conflicts can cause a number of negative trends directly threatening the territory of the Alliance and EU member states (mass migration, terrorism or humanitarian crisis) and can also lead draw other international actors, including Chernarussian allies, into the conflict.


2.33 Protracted unresolved conflicts in Europe and its immediate neighborhood pose another specific risk. These conflicts are accompanied by a number of negative phenomena – the spreading of regional instability, violations of human rights, paralyzed mechanisms of cooperative security, and creation of

an environment suitable for criminal groups with cross-border reach. External actors pursuing their regional power ambitions can also make use of these conflicts.

 2.34 Related security threats entail unilateral attempts by states to build their own areas of influence by means of combined political, economic and military pressure. These tendencies contain the risk of eroding political and legal obligations relevant to European security (gradual weakening of control mechanisms in the field of conventional armed forces, inclusive of the principle of indispensable approval by a state to accept foreign troops on its territory or violating the Helsinki Final Act of the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe and its related documents and principles, and the OSCE principles).

 2.35 The significance of transnational organized crime has increased in today’s complex, multilayered and interconnected environment. Criminal networks show an increased ability to disrupt institutions and values of the rule of law, infiltrate into state administrative bodies and threaten security of individual citizens. An important part of their activities is focused on human, narcotics and weapons trafficking which, inter alia, hampers the stabilization and reconstruction efforts taking place in failed states and within the scope of local or regional conflicts. Differences between political and criminal motives are often being erased, thereby enabling terrorist and criminal networks to intensify their cooperation and interconnectivity. 



The listings below do not show anywhere near the entire country’s military bases, units, or forces. To give a basic idea, we have chosen from the largest and most active military bases via cities with the highest populations. Among those bases, we then chose more well-known units. Each military base can vary in its population at any given time for several reasons. Every military base also contains a MP office and workers

2.       You must be 18 years of age

You will be required to take a personality test, basic aptitude test, and physical fitness tests.

If you pass qualifications, you will be enlisted to the substitute military service, a three-month trial period being active service, and be deployed to the Military Academy in Novigrad. 


Living Structure


During bootcamp, time is structured. You are told when to have class, study, train, exercise, shower, eat, sleep, and wake up. This is to allow you enough time during the day to finish requirements for both training and learning.


Training and College Courses

Continuing to the Academy and later Defense Institutions, the regiment is similar. Students depending on their courses of study; are given scheduled course curriculums, including times for classes, group or single study, times to eat, and group training and drills. Classes start and end by a certain time each day. After classes and training are done for the day, students are allowed free time to do whatever they want. Be it study, workout, go to a movie, or venture around the city. Students typically have weekends off as well. There are plenty of things to do around the capitol, as well as numerous clubs, and extracurricular activities on campus. Students are expected to manage their time wisely, and missing classes and training without good reason, will be strictly penalized. 



When a soldier has finished their academic pursuits and has properly passed all exit testing, they are assigned and sent to an appropriate unit. If a soldier has a change of mind and wishes to advance in a specific area they may not have the proper education for, they may at any time put in a special request to do so to their commanding officer.

Once a soldier arrives at their destination they are given assigned housing. Housing is typically not on base, but close to it. During working hours, a soldier is expected and held to the professional and proper standards for which they have trained for. 

After their workday is done, the soldier can leave base and may do whatever they wish as long as it remains within the code of military ethics. These are basic concepts to not bring shame upon them or their positions. Such as being responsible if attending a bar or club, and to not provoke fights. Basic military politeness and etiquette are expected to be upheld, such as showing respect to a superior officer. In this way, the soldier spends their time working with, and bonding with members of their unit. Then upon finishing for the day they are allowed freedom that is most countries is only allowed in a civilian lifestyle.



Military Academy, Novigrad


The Training Command - Military Academy based in Novigrad provides development of the Chernarussian military doctrinal system, organizes basic, professional and special education and training courses of both professional soldiers and Active Reserve force.

It also organizes pre-deployment courses for Chernarussian, allied and PfP soldiers and civilians who are to be deployed to serve on foreign missions and operations.


“The process of the acquisition of knowledge, skills and habits required by the military profession, as well as the formation of such traditional military virtues as bravery, obedience, physical and mental stamina and readiness for self-sacrifice, goes on throughout the whole period of each soldier’s military service. The key role in the process is played by the first three months of substitute military service.

This training is a - both mentally and physically - very demanding period in the professional career of career soldiers, a period during which they are required to overcome difficult obstacles, obey orders of their superiors and exercise self-control. Military values are not lectured about but absorbed through day-to-day training.”

Pre-Military Training/Bootcamp

Basic training is an initial stage which includes both training and education of a soldier in the active service within the Army of the Republic of Chernarus. The usually three-month basic training is divided into several phases. A soldier learns the basic skills necessary for survival in a battlefield and for combat, and gains physical and mental prerequisites for carrying out duties in active service.

Basic training shapes the soldier’s character traits, determination to win and combat readiness, which all create prerequisites for successful task accomplishment of an individual and the lowest unit. Here, a soldier must obtain not only the necessary knowledge, skills and habits, but also the conviction and the will to accomplish even the most demanding tasks.

In these three months, both the candidate and the military have the ability at any point to decide that the candidate is not fit for military service and terminate the contract. If the soldier fails their final exams, their contracts are terminated before the expiration of the three-month trial period. Those who pass the exams take the military oath and are sent to units for further military training. 


Along with basic military training, military skills, and physical training, courses include:

  • Artillery
  • Conflict Resolution                                                                         
  • Democratic society and the place of the army in it           
  • Elements of military ethics
  • Ethics

Starting Officer Ranks

Once a specified amount of time is spent in a unit, the solider may decide if they want to be promoted to higher ranks and can apply for special military training. 

To be promoted to sergeant or warrant officer, a soldier must start and finish a bachelor’s degree in the area of their choosing at the Military Academy. Depending on selections this can range from 2 – 6 months or more, and a certificate of finishing secondary school examination is required to exit.

Military Oath

“As the societal vision of the ideal soldier doesn’t have its origin in the conflict between political and military elites, soldiers, it seems, accept the vision and don’t resist its transfer into the army. Not only that the army command does not try to thwart the efforts of the society to transfer its vision of the ideal soldier into the army, it actively cooperates and assists in finding ways to facilitate the transfer. The most telling symbolic expression of this cooperation can probably be seen in the changes introduced into the text of military oath. It should be noted here that, even though the text of the oath is officially endorsed by the Minister of Defense, its text is actually created by people in the military.”


I, a soldier of the Armed Forces, realizing my civic and patriotic duties,

solemnly pledge allegiance to the Republic of Chernarus.

I will be a brave and disciplined soldier and I will comply

with the provisions of military regulations.

I will conscientiously learn to operate military equipment and weapons,

and prepare for defense of the Chernarus Republic and defend it against external aggression.

In the name of freedom, equality and brotherhood of nations of the Fatherland,

I swear to fight for the freedom and independence of the Republic of Chernarus.

For defense of the homeland, I am ready to risk my life.

So I swear!


CDF Oath of Enlistment


Laws of Humanity and Rights of Refusal to Follow Orders

Soldiers are taught the Geneva Convention laws, along with other important laws and human rights. The military strives for its soldiers to be intelligent and diligent in upholding these views and actions, including in their daily life.

Soldiers may eventually find themselves in a position of conflict between orders and their conscience. There is a process to act upon this that every soldier in the Chernarussian military has the right at any time to use.

If a commanding officer at any time during peace or war, gives an order that the soldier views as a breach of human rights and liberties, they are to follow the procedure below. If a soldier is given an order that would commit a crime, the soldier is forbidden to obey such an order. This is included in combat situations. 

 “Article 68 of “Basic Order” states that “If a soldier is given an order that he/she believes is in contradiction with legal norms, and if the superior who has issued the order is not aware of the fact the there are obstacles preventing the soldier from following the order or that by following it the soldiers would cause a harm, the soldier has the duty to bring these facts to the superior’s notice. If, in spite of this, the superior insists that the order must be obeyed, the soldier must obey it. 

If that situation occurs, the soldier has the right to require a written confirmation of the order. The soldier has the duty to refuse to follow the order if by following it he/she would commit a crime. If that happens, he must inform about the fact the next superior in the chain of command immediately.” 

If the soldier has an issue with bringing this to the attention of higher command, he is encouraged to go above them. The soldier also has the right to bypass the chain of command entirely, and go directly to the MOD Inspector for the Protection of Human Rights. In Chernarus the office of the Main Inspector is a part of the armed forces and thus works with them. 


A problem in the past has also been hazing and bullying. Neither activity is tolerated within the CDF. If a soldier is caught to be bullying another, or attempting to haze another, they will be strictly punished. This is including of superior officers to lower ranking soldiers. 

Punishment depending on the incident may include demotion, being expelled with a dishonorable discharge, or even prison time. Prison can only be to a maximum of 14 days, and may only be issued by a battalion commander or higher in rank.
