Because Galla is a never-ending font of innovation and human births, and because the Infantry and Cavalry are locked in an eternal duel to the death, I will try to sperg on their respective differences a bit with a brief discussion. Here is the discussion [because a picture is worth a thousand words and this is actually two pictures]:
to crush your enemies
The top is how Galla's Infantry see the future. The bottom is how Galla's Cavalry see the future. Both diagrams are in the same operational-tactical scale, although the Cavalry one is a snapshot of a single moment, while the Infantry one is more of a discrete timeline, so the former is slowly panning towards the top right, rather than developing over time. Perhaps they are both right?!
Brigades are the new divisions.
Divisions are the new corps/armies.
Corps are the new army groups/fronts.
Such is the future.
Or maybe just the past with a few X's and I's changed. ):
to see them driven before you
and to hear the lamentations of the women

All together, this means that each regiment in the Soviet Army must operate a fairly sophisticated agricultural enterprise out of its available personnel and materiel resources. As Marshal Tolubko implied, this requirement must have a significant negative impact on combat readiness. In a less serious vein, one can imagine the mighty Soviet war machine grinding across the Central European Plain, followed by great herds of cattle and clouds of chickens.
also big dispersion means big bombs
this isnt your dad's nookewler kkkombat toe-to-toe with the hazaras, this is fturwar 20XX where atomix are measured in megatons and force densities in "rifles per km^2" because precision weapons have rendered most obvious utilities of nuclear weapons (i.e. killing tank platoons) a bit rubbish rly
however since not every can live the GLSDB Lyfe
i guess that enhanced radiation warheads/fission weapons stick around for a few more years at least as means of destroying entrenched and widely dispersed/camouflaged units with barrage fires and massive amounts of gamma rays
so there are four kinds of TNW used by the gallan army:
- 155mm 0.5, 1, 2 KT ERW for offensive counterbattery and destruction of hard targets (tanks), with a 600 m kill radius against an AFV; a gun battery can kill an opposing gun battery occupying a 2 km^2 to 8 km^2 rectangle/box with one round of erw from 4-8 guns
- 203mm 1, 5, 20, 40 KT boosted fission weapon for destruction of special targets and high value targets at long range
- 127mm rocket with 1 KT fusion weapon for offensive counterbattery beyond the range of 155mm guns; it is fired from the Rs m/270 modular multiple launch rocket system with the 127mm pod
- 227mm 1, 5, 20, 40 KT fusion weapon for destruction of hard targets at long range and neutralization of high dispersion targets (entrenched troops, dispersed tank companies, etc.) and HVTs at very long range delivered by Multiple Launch Rocket System (which can also deliver nerve, choking, vomiting, lachrymatory, and blister agents) in an inertially guided rocket; think of it as a much meatier version of Unitary GMLRS without the pussyfooting around
- air delivered thermonuclear bombs which are clones of B61 with a yield setting of 1, 5, 15, 45, and 60, 90, 180, and 340 KT for the two tactical and operational-tactical versions and 0.5 KT for the hard penetrator/bunker buster version which is intended for use against deep operational-tactical targets (POL depots, FARPs, airbases, and hard bridges) and underground command centers
yields are set by the gun crew using a special wrench (it is painted red so you know it is important) and by opening a panel on the warhead, where a screw indicates which yield setting (and the person with the wrench indirectly adjusts the distance through mechanical screw between the primary and secondary charges appropriately for the yield) aka dial-a-yield
operational-tactical nuclear weapons are:
- a nuclear ATACMS with a 150, 400, and 1200 KT yield settings for deep attack of highly dispersed or operational-tactical targets (primarily airfields and large transportation hubs behind the FLET) delivered by M270 MLRS or HIMARS truck
- single stage Pershing II with a tactical yield of 5, 15, 40, and 80 KT with a 400 kg warhead; which covers the "dead space" between the ATACMS and Pershing II two-stage operational missile; it is primarily designed to destroy large soft targets like railheads, airbases, and shipping ports
operational nuclear weapons are:
- Pershing II with a 1, 5, and 10 KT nuclear earth penetrator with a CEP of less than 8 meters at the maximum ~1,800 km range; primary target is deep underground command centers (nuclear command and control), underground airbases, and other "superhard" targets
- Pershing II with a 10, 40, 80, 200 KT yield with a similar CEP to the earth penetrator, but designed for attacking deep targets like airbases and transportation hubs
strategic nuclear weapons are:
- Peacekeeper with 10 475 KT thermonuclear RVs (a total of 1,500 warheads); primary role is counter-force/destruction of enemy nuclear missile launch means; secondary role is destruction of enemy industrial-population centers
- Midgetman with 1 475 KT thermonuclear RV (accuracy equivalent to Peacekeeper), primary role is counter-force
- Air launched supersonic missiles with a yield of 200 KT designed for delivery from high altitude high supersonic nuclear bombers of Bomber Command (B-70 knockoffs shooting SRAMs); primary target is enemy radar sites and airfields, with the intent of "sanitizing" a corridor for a bomber stream-type attack on industrial-population centers
- Air dropped megaton-yield thermonuclear weapons with a maximum yield of 1.2 MT, so basically B77; primary target is industrial-population economic centers and primary use is destruction of worker population and industrial capacity of the enemy (read: nuking cities)
- Trident II knockoffs with 12 475 KT warheads a piece, carried by the Royal Navy's SSBN force
- three types of nuclear interceptor missiles that are designed to operate in a high radiation/high ionization environment and protect industrial-population and strategic nuclear weapon means from enemy attack; they are basically ripoffs of Improved Spartan (the loitering version of LIM-49 that was never built), Sprint, and LoADS/Sentry; for the purposes of long-range area defense, close-in terminal defense of area targets, and close-in terminal defense of point targets, respectively; galla has a full-up Sentinel defense system designed to defeat portions of attacks from its closest neighbour; not enough to stop the country from being injured severely but enough to preserve enough war materiel and people to win the war that comes after the bombs fall
also Peacekeepers are housed in superhard silos capable of resisting overpressures of 6,500 atmospheres so it's basically "crater zone or bust"
sure it's not HARD ROCK/Deep Underground Base (aka "bury the missiles a half mile under the biggest granite slab in North America with tunnel bore machines and a small army of construction engineers and Air Force missileers; when the bombs fall you dig them out of the base with the TBMs and fire your nuclear wad six months after the fact), but Galla isn't as crazy as the USAF is irl
random fact: the first operational SSBN used by the Gallan Royal Navy was named Sólfar
after the ancient (c. 2000 BC!) Proto-Gallan solar barque that hauled the sun across the sky; and since the advent of the atomic age the Gallan military has tripled down on sun worship memes for the past 70 years and shows no sign of stopping since the Atomic Force has a sun cross in its insignia, the Royal Army and Royal Navy both use solar crosses
to mark/proof their ammunitions, and the Army has adopted an arsenal of fusion weapons to replace all fission weapons because it wants to bring the Sun to Earth to share its glory with the tengriists and catholics
