[CP] A New Era

Day 1,156, 12:18 Published in Ireland Ireland by CelticTiger211

As of today the IDF is disbanded.
Our national military has been a large handicap onto our country. Ministers of Defence inherit an unorganised, out dated system of military that, when compared to armed forces around the World, fails hard!
The IDF lacked modernisation using an infective template of infrastructure. It lacked consistency in maintenance, every term it was subject to a new roster of staff. It lacked organisation, all soldiers could run free & demand supplies with no commitment to the military made on their part.
The IDF has been subject to countless reforms all unsuccessful. So rather than attempt a 6th or 7th reform I’ve decided to scrap our national forces and institute a new military.
So what will replace it?

Arise the Irish Army and with her birth the beginning to an era of professionalism, national unity and strength.
Her establishment was halted by admin’ niggling changes, still we’ve worked around those inconveniences and set up a nice, professional outfit.
The army has two resource officers one tasked with monitoring food production, the other tasked with monitoring weapon production. We currently have 2 grain companies, 2 Q3 food companies, 2 iron companies and a Q4 weaponry company (with a Q5 Weapon Company & a Moving Ticket Company awaiting migration). We’ll assess production this coming week and may invest in more Raw Material companies.
The role of these officers will also entail stocking supply orgs which will be used by the Army’s supply staff to equip soldiers with food & guns.
Soldiers will appeal for food through army spreadsheets and, during prioritised battles, appeal for weapons through spreadsheets. Our supply chain is free of discrimination based upon rank and strength, all who work within the military will be armed. We believe that the army’s progression is dependant on the progression of her soldiers.

“Always In The Fight”
Damn right we are!
I encourage you all to enlist today and join the Army!

The next military update from our Department of Defence org will be addressing all soldiers of the Irish Army. I hope you will take note of the nice alterations we’ve made to the orders J

Lastly, I’d like to thank those of you who kindly donated to this project and those of you who worked so hard toward making it a success.
Anthony Colby, James Keiller, Yddub Emwolb, John Snuggles, orangejuicemmm, Marcus Suridius, Irishbhoy1967, Seanan I you all.

All together my administration is extremely proud of this advancement.
Your President,

Look, as Ireland's military crumbles along with the rest of its country - as its political and economic systems already have.

Is the Irish Army going to be self-supporting? Or is it going to be another gold sinkhole to subsidize e-vacations in Croatia for the soldierboys?

If it will be self-supporting with the members providing all of the weapons and food through the swet of their collective little brows, this will be a significant improvement.

But if not, then it's just the same old tart in a brand new dress.

orangejuicemmm Day 1,156, 15:29

Gonzo, Do you think I would have it any other way? 😛

It is completely self supporting. We just have to operate for a week or two and smooth out any productivity kinks.

We have been talking and taking advice of two Croatians which have helped run armies before.

I remember December 2009 starting a big discussion in the Dáil about the need for a single Irish army. Only took 13 months 😛 Enlisted.

I fully support the formation of the Irish Army. I am glad the IDF disbanded and we have formed a generalized Irish army. Is the ICA still operational?

Mr Ginge
Mr Ginge Day 1,157, 03:04

@MikeBane, the ICA has achieved its long term goal of encouraging the reformation of the national military into one in which soldiers are professional soldiers and work for the Army to create the weapons and food which will be supplied to themselves and their brothers in arms.

This is ia great day for eIreland, I look forward to seeing steady progress of Ireland in reachin the military standards expected around the world.
Very soon I may come back to Ireland, to join and get to work improving this excellent initiative.

Very political reply there, Ginge.
May I ask Mike's question again, for myself, so?
Is the ICA still operational? Or now disbanded and superseded by this one? I'd be looking for a clear reply. Thx.

orangejuicemmm Day 1,158, 11:30

Grainne, Currently, We are not operating, but if Ireland becomes a farce again we will be back (and with a vengeance)
