That's a real good start, Mech! Now you need to organize them and add the HQ and support units. Are the army regiments organized into brigades and divisions? They will need HQ units and support units to keep them running like maintenance, transportation, medical, supply, signal, etc.

How are the air force wings organized? How many aircraft and what type? Are they organized into squadrons?

Once you get them all organized you'll need to figure out how many personnel and how many vehicles. I believe the large transports can carry 1,000 to 1,200 vehicles so we need to know what can fit in each ship.

For game purposes we'll use generic cargo vessels and we will assume that each ship can carry 1,200 vehicles. Consider each piece of towed artillery as a vehicle, but we won't count trailers.

Lookin good, Mech. Also consider some units that your division may need support from when deployed overseas. Look at division and corps level units from different armies to see all the other stuff they have. Some of it is killing stuff and some of it keeps the divisions and brigades moving.

I'm looking forward to seeing your air force org too!

The RCAF origination in the New Canadian military is kinda the same as most militaries, but the difference is that they can choose which Aircraft they can bring pending on the roles they will be assigned to do in a mission. I will do the organization when I get back home from work.

Brigadier General John Fitzgerald, has been appointed to lead New Canada’s mission in Libya, once the forces selected for this mission is all prepared, they will set sail. Fitzgerald and his general staff will fly down to CFB Lahr in Germany to over see the operations in Libya from the Combat Operations Center in the base

You're going to oversee a mission i Africa from a base in Europe? At some point in the chain of command the higher ups move away from the battlefield, but I would expect a brigadier general to be close to the fighting. It's your army though.

Where exactly are you sailing to when you deploy? So far Saudi Arabia is the only country that has expressed an interest in having foreign troops on its soil. The ROD 7th Armored Brigade will arrive in Jeddah tonight.

Remember that if you intend to participate in the wargame you will need to participate in the logistics side as well. How many troops? How many vehicles? When are supply ships scheduled?

For game purposes we will assume 1,200 vehicles are the large transports and 250,000 tons of supply on the supply ships. I'm still figuring out the supply details of the game, but it will be generic supply points rather than fuel and ammo and batteries and toilet paper, etc.

2 ships per day at each SPOE/SPOD and 10,000 troops per day at each APOE/APOD.

Where thinking about sailing the fleet to Barcelona Spain to use their port as a logistics area for the cargo ships, then setup a beachhead at Benghazi Libya.

Libya doesn't want you there. Neither does the Eurasian Empire.

Are you participating in the wargame that I am preparing or are you just doing your own thing?

I am Participating in the wargame yes, we will sail to Saudi Arabia not sure how well they would treat Canadians in their territory, though that would mean rounding the cape of good hope since where coming from the Atlantic.

Jeddah is on the Red Sea. You can pass through the Suez Can-al. The Saudis might not like you, but they will tolerate you because they are afraid of the Eurasian Union targeting them next. You will just need to behave yourself.

Alright that’s settled will travel to the Red Sea. Though it’s best to keep a close eye on the saudis in case if they try to...switch sides.

Well being a higher up the chain of command in the NCAF does have its perks, you get to command the forces in luxury and safety of a CFB base, besides a Brigadier General is a very important position that should not be compromised during any Mission.

Anyway Heres the run down of the RCAF side of the Libyan Campaign.
each of the squadrons has finalized their selection of Aircraft their going to bring.

1st Wing Kingston
No 400 Squadron (CH-47 Chinooks)
No 403 Squadron (CH-47 Chinooks)
No 408 Squadron (CH-47 Chinooks)
No 430 Squadron (CH-47 Chinooks)
No 438 Squadron (UH-1 Huey)
No 450 Squadron (UH-1 Huey)
This Wing will be transported onboard a Cargo ship to Saudi Arabia to where they are used to ferry troops and supplies via helicopters.

3rd Wing Bagotville
No 425 Squadron (CF-18 Hornet)
No 433 Squadron (CF-18 Hornet)
No 439 Squadron (CF-18 Hornet)
This Wing has the task of being a interceptor unit.

4th Wing Cold Lake
No 401 Squadron (CF-18 Hornet)
No 409 Squadron (CF-14 Tomcat)
No 410 Squadron (CF-14 Tomcat)
No 417 Squadron (CF-14 Tomcat)
No 419 Squadron (CF-14 Tomcat)
This wing is given the task of being the ground attack unit.

8th Wing Trenton (only three squadrons are going)
No 412 Squadron (CC-130 Hercules)
No 424 Squadron (CC-17 Globemaster)
No 429 Squadron (CC-17 Globemaster)
They will be the heavy lift transports for dropping the larger equipment and supplies on the field.
