[NEWS]Restructuring the Red Guards, organization of the People’s Land Forces

The Red Guards have so far proved effective at safeguarding the revolution, acting as the militant arm of the Syndicalist Party, acting as both military and police. As the revolution has been successful, however, it is necessary to reorganize the Red Guards into a more organized and functional armed forces.

The People's Armed Forces of Romania

The Red Guards will be reorganized into the People's Armed Forces of Romania. The Armed Forces will be split into three service branches: the People's Red Army, the People's Public Security Forces, and the People's Civil Defence Force.

The People's Red Army will again be split into three branches: the People's Ground Forces, the People's Air Forces, and the People's Navy. The People's Public Security Forces will act as the main police and internal security force of the People's Republic, and will also be responsible for the coast guard and border defence forces.

People's Ground Forces

The People's Ground Forces will serve as the main service branch of the People's Red Army. The successor to the Romanian Land Forces it will serve as the ground-based service branch of the Red Army.

Consisting of 45,000 personnel, the Ground Forces are the most sizable branch of the Red Army. They are divided into two divisions of X infantry each, as well as several independent brigades, regiments, and battalions. Despite the new name, it has largely inherited the structure of the Romanian Land Forces, with only changes in manpower and equipment inventories. The main additional change is the addition of the Political Department units attached to every division, as well as the Ground Forces Command as a whole, and the recreation of the 1st Infantry Division "Dacia" to be headquartered in Chișinău, as the People's Republic of Moldova lacks an independent armed forces, and both Republics have agreed to share their armed forces.
