[EVENT] Balkan States Armed Services, Balkan States Army Procurement 2054

The MoD has ordered a second round of modernization and procurement to ensure the security of the United Federation of Balkan States through the half century and beyond. Phase I or the core phase revolves around force up-scaling and getting rid of the chaff from the wheat. Older vehicles from the cold war have been phased out or placed into storage. They may even be converted into other platforms for civil or military use. Either way, a new round of procurement will begin.

The Balkan States Army or alternatively as the Balkani Army has placed an order for the following:

  • 350x VSV-4-4 Mortar Carriers
  • 900x 120mm Mortars
  • 720 FG1A Airmobile Howitzers
  • 720 FG2A Howitzers
  • 460x MTPV Utility Trucks/Personnel Vehicles
  • 1,500 Tornado A2B APCs – will replace VSV-4-1 APCs

  • Brigade Headquarters will distribute to units as needed by the strategic situation on the ground.

New Division level units will be recomposed of their former brigades, and will retain their Combined Arms Division status. However, each brigade has been tailored and made uniform which will improve logistics and management. Brigade level air-wing groups will be added, notably for transport.



In addition more units have been ordered for the Reserves, which will be updated and provided with the following, and retain the same types of brigades as the new active duty warfighters do, upon completion of production:

This is for 2x armored, 2x mechanized, and 2x light infantry and 2x motorized brigades.

  • 600x MTPV
  • 608x LTPV
  • 200x VSV-4-2
  • 400x 120mm Mortar
  • 400x VSV-4-4
  • 480x FG1A Airmobile Howitzers
  • 240x FG2A Howitzers
  • 500x VSV-4-1
  • 470x Badger 20 IFV
  • 260x BM40


Costs for the entire project run into the billions of course, around $8 billion USD and will be paid half and half for two years. Production will finish by January 2057.

Blossom Balkana!
