Great area to ambush armor and mech, Chris. Dismount your mech, augment with an infantry brugade, and assign a fire team to surround each tank and you MIGHT get through...

Training Part 1

The NCAF does not have an equivalent to a Training Command like the ROD has, instead the responsibility of Training these recruits rests on the Individual units who reside in the CFBs that are found throughout the country. (with the exception being the former CFB Comox as its currently occupied by the KDF.)
lets go over the basic infantry training for the NC Army.

The Task of training these fresh recruits for the infantry Regiments is done by the Drill instructors who works for the Regimental Commander the owner and manager of the base who his regiment resides in. The Infantry Training Program lasts for 8 weeks, where the soldiers are trained in the use of their weapons on the live fire range, moving in close formation, and charging at enemy targets with bayonets while the drill instructors yells at them, the recruits then goes through whats known as a "obedience course", its like a confidence course, except the difference is the drill instructors uses a lot more yelling and even more harsher disciplinary measures on the recruits until they can go through this obstacle course without fail, and without the help of their fellow soldiers, this instills the idea of following orders without question nor hesitation, and fear on what should happen if they disobeyed said direct order from their Commissioned Officer. Once these "Scrubs" are now soldiers the Drill instructors move on to the next batch of recruits, and repeat the cycle.

The graduated soldiers then go to the regiments main assembly hall, from where they sing the National Anthem, and watched a video containing an uplifting speech from the NC Government saying that how the members of parliament are proud of these citizens joining the Armed Forces and to start serving their country and that great rewards and fame will be theirs to take when they succeed in a mission for the good of the nation and the military.

Next post will be about the NCO and Commissioned Officers training.

Training Part 2

Continuing on with the Infantry Regiments.

NCO training
Soldiers with the Rank of Sergeant are sent to the NCO Academy in Ottawa to train them in a subordinate leadership role to the Commissioned Officers in charge within a Platoon and in a Battalion level, the NCOs job is to instill discipline and keep the enlisted ranks together in Battalion sized formations via through the use of force, each Sergeant carries around a Steel Baton to which they use to beat the enlisted ranks back in line should the Platoon or Battalion shows signs of breaking while in the middle of combat, and to ensure that the orders of the Commanding officers are followed to the letter without deviation.

Commissioned Officers Training.
People wanting to become Officers in the NCAF will go to the Officers Academy in Ottawa, to where they pay a tuition fee of $15,000 Dollars and become an Officer Cadet. The Commissioned Officers Training consists of a 8 months worth of Studying in the Armys Tactics and Strategy in the Academy's library and carrying out scenarios on tabletop using 6mm Models from GHQ (How Ironic.) They do receive some Combat Training during this period, but not to the same extent as the enlisted ranks in Boot Camp. Their final exam is to command a mock section on the training grounds, if passed they earn the rank of Lieutenant and get assigned to an Infantry Regiment to Command a section, upon promotion to the Rank Of Captain, they go back to the Officers Academy for a further 8 Months to learn how to Command a Platoon, and so on with each consecutive Rank, but when they reach the rank of Lt Colonal to where they command a Company, they are taught to refrain from entering frontline combat as their role has moved into the back in order to administrate the movement of troops and maintaining logistics, eventually once they reach the rank of Brigadier General and afterwards they will remain in New Canada maintaining the CFB bases to where the Infantry Regiments resides in, and to become members of the Armed Forces Council.

Coming up next is the Training of recruits in the Armored and Mechanized Regiments.

Training Part 3

Armored and Mechanized Regiments.

Recruits who are brought to the Armored and Mechanized Regiments, starts off their 4 month training program at the bases classroom to where they study on the basic operations of the Vehicles they are going to be driving in such as Leapord 2's LAV IIIs, etc, afterwards, they are taught on how to perform basic Maintenance on the Vehicles systems such as changing the oil, Air filter, Cleaning out the weapons etc, eventually they will began their crew training, driving around the base in the vehicles they are assigned with so they can get the feel of it before moving on to the more advanced training. Their advanced training consists of keeping the vehicles in close formation and relying on one another to provide covering fire in live fire exercises, and moving through the most roughest terrain in the Tankers Confidence course, while at the same time the regiments drill instructors fire rocks and paint balls at the hulls of the vehicles in order to toughen up the crew in the face of fire in essence making them feel invincible inside the armored shell. Once their training is complete they meet at the assembly hall and get the same uplifting message as the infantry.

NCO and Officers in Armored and Mechanized Regiments.
The role of the NCO and training in an Armored and Mechanized Regiments, is the same as the infantry, but they treat the enlisted crews less harshly, instead they guide and council them on the importance of maintaining unit cohesion and following orders of their superiors, and not get too overconfident about the Armor Protection of their vehicles, they want the vehicle and its crew to survive and win. Commissioned Officers training is the same as in the infantry regiments, though these officers are much more "braver" then their infantry counterparts as their higher ups actually can engage in frontline combat, but they can be a bit brash and arrogant at times, and will go to extremes to succeed in the operations . But they do try to stick to the battle plan during an operation, supporting infantry regiments or "Poor Bloody Infantry." as the crews nicknamed them. As the result These officers are often the Commanders of the entire operation to which they can command the RCN and RCAF elements.

Next Ill be covering the Arttilery regiments training.

Mech,
Excellent post covering your arrangements for the NC Military.
It is certainly a different approach and may find disapproval or bemusement from some.
However the KDF takes it at face value and respects your choices in NC. It is an Imagi-Nation and we all need a little difference between us to keep it interesting.
If everyone was running on the same lines and logic there would not be much point.

Your post also gives an insight into the decisions, dispositions and actions taken by the NC Forces. By helping us to understand how and why you are working in a certain way, the risks of a tactical misunderstanding should be reduced.
The goals of the KDF are completely different to those of New Canada, it is only appropriate that they train for them as they see fit.

Karma-Naskis would like to thank NC for providing this openness and clarity in to your Military. Such actions make Karma-Naskis a safer place.

I can appreciate the amount of time and thought that goes into developing a detailed organization at this level. The ROD finds some of this a little disturbing, but like Mick said, it is your imagi-nation to create and develop as you see fit.

the ROD Army is currently undergoing a realignment of resources as part of the AE2020 initiative, so if you want to bounce anything off of me let me know.

Training part 4

Artillery Regiments

Recruits sent to the Artillery Regiments are given a 2 month long course on the basic operation and maintenance of the Artillery weapons from the mobile units like M109, ADATS, and the recent addition to the army the M142 HIMARS, to the more towed guns like the M777, 81mm mortar, and the M101 Howitzer, afterwards they move on to live fire exercises to where the gun crews are trained on the loading sequence of the weapons and too fire and reload them as fast as possible, some are trained into the Artillery spotters in case other regiments cannot spot for them, aside from firing targets on the ground the Artillery Regiments can engage aginest low flying aircraft with ADATS, and towed twin 40mm AA Cannons.

NCOs
The NCOs job is kinda the same but their task is to ensure that the enlisted gun crews can continue firing pending on the request of the superior officer, they often carry a steel baton on them to make the crews work faster.

Commissioned Officers
These Commissioned Officers are tasked purely to coordinate the Howister fire, maintain stocks of Ammo, and providing AA Protection to the field HQ. the officers do not see frontline combat at all given the role in a Artillery Regiment, however they can get a little...trigger happy when they command the Howitzers to fire on the target, leading to said target being over saturated to the point that its completely obliterated.

The Regiments main drawback is they have little to no means of defending themselves from attack, as such they rely on ether the infantry or armored regiments to defend them.

Next I'll cover the RCN side of the NCAF, with their crew and officer training.

RCN Training

Crew Training
Those People who signed up for the RCN, are taken to the training facilities HMCS Tecumseh in Calgary Alberta, and HMCS Unicorn in Saskatoon Saskatchewan. Their 8 Week training is conducted "Onboard" life sized wooden mockups of various classes of RCN Warships, from Replenishment Oilers to the JFK Class carrier HMCS Canada, this has give the nickname "New Canada's Wooden inland Fleet." In this program they learn how to operate the various ship systems, all while being constantly yelled and harshly disciplined by their instructors. after the Sailors have graduated they are given postings onboard actual RCN Warships.

Midshipman
Midshipman is the RCNs equivalent to a Petty Officer rank, they are given the task of ensuring that the enlisted sailors are kept in line and keeping the ship in constant readiness, They often work with the Master at Arms, and ship security to qwell any mutinies or other such insubordination, they often carrying around a Flogging Whip to use on the insubordinate sailors.

Naval Officers training
Naval Officers are trained at the Officers Academy in Ottawa for a 8 month period studying on basic Naval Tactics and Ship to Ship Combat using GHQ's micronauts models, after graduation they are given the rank of lieutenant and commands a Gun Crew on a RCN warship, upon reaching the Commanders rank, he gets to command a replenishment oilier or a Corvette, the Rank of Captain has command on ether a Frigate or a Destoryer, the Commodore's Rank gets to Command Cruisers and escort carriers, the Largest warships are reserved by the Admirals, but most of the time these Admirals are busy maintaining the Naval bases in Esquimult and Halifax, and they make up the RCN section of the Armed Forces council. These Officers are known for their eagerness to fight in a large naval battle and become the Next Lord Nelson, as a result the Admirals often send Large numbers of Warships to an operation expecting to fight a large fleet of enemy ships.

The RCN are the only Navy in the world that can deliberately perform Ramming Attacks as their prows are Heavily reinforced to allow them to survive impact and slicing through the hulls of enemy vessels.

RCAF Training (This training Covers the RCN Naval aircraft.)

Recruits who signed up to be Pilots are transferred to the CFB bases where the RCAF are located for a 8 Month course on how to pilot aircraft that the RCN and RCAF used, there training is primarily conducted in a flight simulator at the base in order to give the trainees the skills on how to perform basic flight maneuvers during that time afterwards they go through a centrifuge, so they can experience high G-forces and learn to get used it when they fly the real thing. after 4 months of basic is over they move on to the advanced part of the training to where they sent up in a BAE Hawk jet trainer with a flight instructor so they can experience being in a real aircraft in flight performing basic maneuvers just like in the simulator, then after a while they move up to the real military aircraft as part of their final flight exam if passed they earn their wings and become pilots, training of the aircraft's weapon systems is conducted solely in a simulator as it due to a series of noise complaints that where filed by the Community's near the bases. This kind of training is far more relaxed then its Army and Navy counterparts, as the pilots has to be more calm when piloting very expensive aircraft. though as a result they can be rather reckless with their aircraft.

NCO training
The Task of the Air Marshal (a former Commissioned officers rank of the RCAF but it has since been reused to replace the Warrant Officers rank) is to ensure that all aircraft remain in formation during an operation only to break if they come under attack by an enemy aircraft.


Officers training
Is the with same as the Army and Navy its the same thing, though their training is more focused on air combat and tactics (and yes they do use GHQ models of course,) these Officers though are a little... uptight as they don't want to lose these expensive aircraft both in combat and in training accidents as money to replace them comes out of their pockets.

Helicopter training
this training is a little different as it requires the pilots to keep it stable while in flight as well as land and take off vertically. most of the Helicopters used are mainly transports, though gunships do exist in the form of Huey gunships and Kiowa Warriors for the RCAF, and Sea Apaches for the RCN.

WFOXY News with Ronda,
"The Canadian military is providing all these PR pieces, publicity information about the new and improved military, the evolution of improvement in operations, training, manpower is all CRAP!! The Canadian economy is in shambles, Prime Minister Tubman announced the economy grew by 1.8%, GDP. Yet inflation was at 5.4%, so in real terms the economy contracted, Anemic results. Tightened money supply, raise short-term rates to keep inflation in check, but it hurts growth. Government had to increase borrowing, delay payments to the pensions with adequate funding for government workers."
. "Another failed policy besides the economy and military improvement programs is the Medical Marijuana. Major hospital have been getting supplied on the down low. The Federal Government does not really have a clue as to what the medical community needs, but what it is doing."
. "Another failure is the strategy employed in the military, not working with other national military organizations around the world on the battlefield. Canada might go with another nation or several nations, but coordinating operations, planning, and goals are not aligned. There is a lack of several capabilities such as Special Forces, sufficient operational and tactical logistics planning while there is not Line of Communication for the Supply Line. The highly expensive air supply in Syria for Aleppo vs. setting up a ground supply line either in the area controlled by an ally or by Canada.
This is Rhonda standing in for Shelia at WFOXY News.

The New Canadian Government has setup some guideline pertaining to the use of Cannabis in the country as listed by Health Canada.

1. Cannabis consumers must be 18 years or over.
2. All Cannabis users must have a Health Canada approved license to use Cannabis in the country.
3. You are not allowed to grow your own Cannabis plants at home, as Cannabis production in the country will be handled by Health Canada approved sites (once built.)
4. Medical Cannabis usage, requires another Health Canada license to use in the country, though it will have to be imported from Karmanaskis once a deal is made.
5. Cannabis will be distributed by Health Canada owned and managed locations across New Canada.
6. Service members in both the Armed Forces and other government agency's are not allowed to use Cannabis.
7. The Use of Cannabis is prohibited in every public space, in order to best minimize the Heath problems pretaining to this plant.

The New Canadian government also loosened the supply of money, and lowered short term rates for better economic growth.

In a statement made by the NCAF regarding The lack of Special Forces. "The New Canadian Armed Forces has virtually no interest in developing a Special Forces Unit, citing that we don't have the sufficient equipment, resources, nor means of training people for such units, I'm sorry it's just not feasible in our military."

Alternate Medical Ltd is applying to the New Canada government.
1. To be the provider of Cannabis for the medical program. It is a completely new company formed in New Canada, domiciled in Canada.
2. To be the distributor of Cannabis for the program so the New Canadian Government does not need to open the locations, handles staffing and Human Resources, employment and payroll issues, manage distribution, marketing: packaging, product, promotion & pricing issues.
3. We will place the corporate HQ in the city or area that is preferred by the New Canadian Government, the current thoughts are Ottawa or Vancouver.
New Canada Cannabis Distribution Ltd. looks forward to working with the Dept of Health of New Canada.
