Forze Armate Florentiana ~ Florencian Armed Forces

The Florencian Army dates back to the Republic of Florencia and has fought in numerous engagements over the years, particularly as an appendage to the Yardistani Anarchic Corps, and often under the umbrella of the Shirerithian Armed Forces. The army is an umbrella that includes the land forces, navy, and a small air force. It now forms a part of the State Guard maintained by the State of Modan.

The FAF headquarters are located in Capitolia, opposite the Governor’s Palace; although it has three other bases on Florencia. The army is an all-volunteer force of active-duty personnel, numbering 10,062 as of 1621 AN.

The Florencian Armed Forces is organized into two brigades, one fleet, one squadron, and the military police.

Esercito Florentiana ~ Florencian Army

1st Land Brigade (Granatieri di Capitolia)
    1st Armoured Battalion Vittoria
    1st Mechanised Battalion Bruciante
    1st Motorised Battalion Acquario

2nd Land Brigade (Grande Cavalleria)
    2nd Armoured Battalion Guardiano
    2nd Mechanised Battalion Sempreverde
    2nd Motorised Battalion Grilletto

The Armoured Battalions consist of one Command & Signals Squadron, two Tank Squadrons with qty 15 tanks each, one Mechanised Infantry Company with qty 20 APCs, one Self-propelled Field Artillery Group with howitzers, one Logistic Company, an Anti-Tank Company, and an Engineer Company.

The Mechanised Battalions consist of one Command & Signals Squadron, one Tank Squadron, three Mechanised Infantry Companies, one Self-propelled Field Artillery Group with howitzers, one Logistic Battalion, an Anti-Tank Company and an Engineer Company.

The Motorised Battalions consist of one Command & Signals Squadron, one Armoured Company (a mixed unit of tanks and mechanised infantry), three Motorised Infantry Companies, one Field Artillery Group, one Logistic Company, an Anti-Tank Company and an Engineer Company.

Marina Florentiana ~ Florencian Navy

1st Fleet (Primo Gruppo Navale)
    San Lucca Marine Company - 402 marines
    4 Maestrale class frigates - 900 crew

The Maestrale class frigates were primarily designed for anti-submarine warfare, however the ships are highly flexible so they are also capable of anti-air and anti-surface operations.

Aeronautica Florentiana ~ Florencian Air Force

1st Squadron Cesare (1st Wing)

The Cicogna (Stork) is a Tellian "short take-off and landing" (STOL) aircraft formerly manufactured by the Officine Meccaniche d'Tellia SA before its liquidation following the collapse of the Minarborian portion of the Tellian Condominium. Designed for short-range reconnaissance and light transport, the aircraft is primarily used for army liaison and communication flights.

No-one knows the origins of this bizarre road worthy autogyro, which was discovered in 1642 during a raid on the compound of a local smuggler who had absconded from Lich justice. As a road worthy vehicle, the contraption is able to land on the coastal road of northern Florencia, and return to base under its own power, its undercarriage being in a robust tricycle configuration. Usually attached to supporting the Carabinieri.

Carabinieri ~ Florencian Police

~1,200 police officers

It'll be cold when we're called upon to finally crush those dirty Amokolian rebels.
