The Skandinavisk Bakkestryker is the ground combat arm of the Forsvaret. They operate land based missions, and are the largest arm of the entire military. Ceremonially, the Konge is the hereditary leader of the Army, but officially General Berndt Grundevik is the leader.
The bakkestryker is organized into twenty four regiments, each with either a base or military station. Each regiment has special components which are then divided into a squad. Squads are the smallest organization unit in the bakkestryker, and thus are formed on the availability of soldiers. Squads are headed by sergeants, and the sergeants each have a certain responsibility over that squad. Squads are usually formed when there are ten people extra in another squad. The maximum amount of people in each squad can be twenty to twenty-five based on the current status of the country. Each squad receives one transport truck and four armored attack cars.
The Bakkestryker is separated into several commands that have a specific designation over a certain sector. These commands are not limited to these sectors, with only four primary commands existing. These four commands are ODINCOMMAND, the entire Forsvaret's high command, THORCOMMAND, which is the composite identification of all Sectional commands, LOKICOMMAND, which is designation used by the SONII when operating with the military, and SKADICOMMAND is the name of the command that does not operate in a sector but instead organizes the use of the Skandinavisk Imperial Guard. Although the Imperial Guard is not apart of the Forsvaret, their command operates under ODINCOMMAND.
Skandinavia is divided into military sectors for easy mobilization and combat efforts. These sectors are comprehensive in military designation, and one or more regiments are usually stationed strategically in them for total defensive purpose. The sectors can divide entire provinces into smaller sections, of which military regiments can then form balanced impact measures to effectively eliminate enemy units in the area. Sectors are determined by the availability of troops for the province, and are divided as so. The only province that is entirely in one sector by itself is Denmark, due to its size and importance as the capital province. Sectors have their own commands, but follow the basic command structure determined in the Forsvaret's doctrine. For example, the DANSK sector's head command is DANSKSECTIONAL, and under that command operates various strategic commands. These commands then control individual regiments, as done in other military sectors of the country. The only sector not following this routine is the SVERG-CENTRAL sector, which only contains one regiment due to its economic, cultural, and strategic importance. All sectors can be overridden by ODINCOMMAND, and their power ultimately assimilated for large scale efforts.
Skandinavia only imports a small amount of military equipment, but Skandinavia's government is working on becoming independent of foreign suppliers for greener technologies. Currently, Skandinavisk companies supply 65% of the military supply.
Combat Assistance IntelligenceEdit
The Snotra Mark III CLAI is a state of the art limited artificial intelligence. Snotra was created by Grønne-Nasjonal Systems BAB, a subsidiary of Bofors, in 1999 under the Mark I format. Snotra is a limited artificial intelligence and preforms tasks such as the Strategic Enhancement System. The System is able to identify enemy units within seconds of their appearance, and identify which area in the battle-space is most suitable for the user to preform combat from. Snotra uses a complex link system to unify the user and the command. Snotra uses a retina implant to guide the user, and these implants can easily be removed at the will of the user. The interface of Snotra is called upon by a specific designation code given to the user, most commonly "2008", and Snotra uses the user's retina to glide through the screen. The process of accessing information can be done via voice recognition or retina point. The programme is connected to ODINCOMMAND via broadband signal stations located across the country, but connection to the system is only for updates and communications. Snotra displays the user's Health Structural Integrity, on a scale of 0 to 100, and the user's equipment count.
All persons of the Bakkestryker receive a ULL Body Enhancement System suit, a highly technical body enhancement and protection system. ULL was developed by Jakobson Skytevåpen SA in 2003, and has under gone seven upgrades since its creation. The latest edition was created in 2011. ULL, named after the old god of dueling, uses microbial injection systems, a steroid-caffeine-salvia mixture, to constantly increase the user's ability. The mixture is injected upon entering the suit, and every six hours after that. The steroids are to increase the body structure of the user as they preform combat duties. The caffeine is to constantly keep the user alert and ready for service, and the salvia is to counteract anxiety and the body's system of pain alerts. The ULL system uses a lightweight titanium alloy chain system to allow for increased speeds and bullet protection. Over the titanium chain, but only in vital areas, is 2cm thick rubber-plastic body armour to help decrease the chance of bullet impact. The ULL system covers the entire body, and has an implanted human excretion module to allow the user to defecate if they are needed to.
