Republique of France

The Republique of France is a nation scarred and debilitated by its experiences over the past seventy years. It has seen war and revolution, monarchy and republic. It has held an empire and has been fought over as a prize. At the height of its power under the legendary Napoleon Bonaparte, it sought to challenge the great Prussian Empire for dominance of Europe, and at its nadir it found itself unable to even defend its own borders, and suffered the ignominy of having some of its richest provinces laid waste during battles between the foreign powers that sought to govern its very destiny.

Since the advent of peace, the Republique has quietly rebuilt its forces. Their military is small compared to those of its neighbours, but it is a highly elite and well-motivated organisation. Like the Blazing Sun, France fields integrated combined-arms formations called Legions. The French soldier, commonly known by the honourable epithet chasseur, or ‘hunter’, is a highly disciplined and well-equipped instrument of war. The French military, unable to match in numbers the conscript mass armies of Prussia and Russia, focuses on training and technological innovation to make up for this deficit in materiel.

The armoured brigades of the Republic of France are famous for their judicious use of Bastille class Landships supported by Focault ‘R-6’ medium class tank and the Marteau Class bombards providing excellent long range firepower.

In addition to its more conventional Land force, the Republic of France has acquired Gravity Nullification Engine (GNE) technology, an innovation that no other nation as yet possesses. By means of this mysterious attribute, French seagoing vessels are capable of lifting themselves out of the water and becoming fully airborne for considerable periods of time. This allows them to fight alongside the Armoured Brigades and the firepower they can bring to bear is virtually unmatched.
