QUESTION FOR READERS
ARMED FORCES OF POLAND
Poland is one of the top 5 countries in New World and it has one of the most powerfull armies. Their armed forces are divided in several distinct groups. First group which is under direct government control is WP – Wojsko Polskie (Polish Army). WP is regular Polish army and acts as a professional mobile unit capable to deliver serious amount of damage in a very short time. Second group is PGB - Polskie Grupy Bojowe (Polish Military Groups) and it is comprised of all other paramilitary units in Poland. PGB is not under direct government control but acts on government orders and is being paid for that. Third group is PCA – Polish Civil Army. PCA is basicaly a MU for civilians who earn their bazookas and energy bars by fighting in proper battles. Commander of PCA is allways a president of the country or MoD. WP and PGB are required to use egov4you so MoD has a pretty good picture how much influence those units inflict in battle.
Poland has a regular budget for its armed forces. Every day PLN is being transferred from treasury to Ministry of Defense. 28.000 goes to WP, 120.000 goes to PGB and 5000 goes either to emergency reserve stock or is used for transport expenses. PGBs 120.000 PLN is divided to units according to their battle influence and hits. 30% of budget is divided according to hits and 70% according to overall influence of the unit. Money is then distributed by commanders to their soldiers or into the units budget to cover expense of manufactured weapons. In the next couple of articles we’ll try to show you all Polish units and these are just some of them.

History: Perun was formed as a protector of Slavic countries (Perun is Slavic God of thunder and lighting) and although it was an EDEN unit, it fought for Slavic countries. Their first great operation was the battle of Western Siberian Region where they fought against Indonesia and liberated the region for Russia. They spent around 300 gold pieces in that battle of which 200 was payed by Russian government. 300 G from that period equals around 3 or 4K today. Perun used to gather people from all Slavic countries and often they had problems because wars between Slavic countries were common so they tried to avoid that kind of battles although it wasn’t always possible to do that. Gradually Perun became exclusively Polish-Czech-Slovakian unit and today there are three distinct Perun units – Polish, Slovakian and Macedonian. Although three different and autonomous units, they still maintain contact between each other.

They receive governmental support but it ammounts to about 10% comparing all others non-governmental funds they receive. They say for themselves that they are „one of the oldest, strongest and most underrated groups in Poland” and there are many controversies involving them but they “don’t give a shit about it”. They focus on humor and fun and often organize a lot of actions and events in order to “show off”. Perfect example of this is their message to WP.

Recruitment: Every player with strength level +1k is welcome in Legion. If someone doesn’t meet this requirement, he can still join MU as long as he remains active.
History: Legion is one of the few military groups bringing together people from two different countries and first Polish-Hungarian MU. The idea for Polish-Hungarian Legion emerged when Poland was still a member of EDEN and Hungary belonged to PHOENIX. In Hungarian press DonAsher published an article with proposal to create “association” of people united by Polish-Hungarian friendship. Celahim read it and after a short talk with DonAsher presented the idea in Polish press. It has met with an approval among Polish players. Soon the “association” transformed into military unit which eventually was called “Polish-Hungarian Foreign Legion”. Since Poland and Hungary were technically in war with each other, Legion established its base in Slovakia which had good relations with both countries. Eventually Poland left EDEN and signed MPP with Hungary, allowing them to be stationed in their home countries. They changed their name to “Polish-Hungarian Legion” and today they have two subdivisions – Polish corps with 230 soldiers and Hungarian light brigade with 40 soldiers.
