A breakway from the Tsardom, the Republic of Shlyuz sits among the mountains between the open plains of it's former rulers and desert Peninsula of Bazistan.


  • Strong technical knowledge and training base to support highly trained and equipped aerial forces.
  • Strong natural defences from the mountainous terrain.
  • Oil and Natural gas.
  • Multiple deposits of Uranium, Rare Earth Minerals and metal ore provide a solid economic base.
  • Mutual Defence agreement with Rettung- strong bond including trade, supply of weapons and cross-training.


  • Small nation surrounded by two regional players.
  • Long and mountainous border can lead to unmonitored cross border activities.
  • Landlocked so all trade must come through either their main ally or Bazistan.

Internal Security Platoon

Internal security forces have now yet received all the equipment of the Army. Instead they use a mix of modern items (most commonly camo fatigues) and older Tsarist equipment (body armour and small arms). It is common to see Internal Security forces with a mix of weapons and body armour. A common identifier is the use of black head gear, be it a helmet cover, peaked cap, beret or bandana.

As well as police work, Internal Security forces would act as ambush teams during invasions, using the local environment and a stockpile of weapons to outflank and harass invaders.

They are most commonly mounted in Gaz Tigr armoured vehicles.

Internal Security Platoons are made up of:

  • Command Team
  • 4x Internal Security Section

Internal Security Section
  • Section
   Team Leader (Cpl) - Various
   Team 2IC (Senior Rifleman) - Various
   Operative - Various
