Other tactics:

He leads his men in a daily prayer before every battle, so they all have high morale.

Weapons:

Close: Cutlass

Pole-arm: Boarding Pike

Ranged: English Standard Issue Crossbow w/flaming arrows

Off-Hand: Throwing Knife

Armor: Steel Thin Chest Plate

Tactics: For attacking, Ryan often uses a charge-forward with reckless disregard for life strategy for battles, with a mental warfare of slaughtering innocents strategy for sieges, then throwing corpses over the wall. For defensive, Ryan refuses to hold still and will do whatever it takes to break past the enemy force.

Attacking Troops: 5,000 men

10 siege cannons loaded with grapeshot and the required amounts of people to run them. (30 men)

2,000 Pirates. Weapons: Close: Cutlass Far: Crossbow

My defensive force is very similar, with some changes

Replace skirmishes with 4,000 archers wielding English crossbows for defending. For defensive equipment, we have 4-feet tall barricades with sharpened edges, 5 catapults w/flaming boulders, and a 15-feet deep moat.

Ranged Weapon- Hat-Based Flamethrower

Polearm- Guan Dao

Main Melee- Shortsword

Off-Hand- Flail

Tactics- After the odd circumstances that lead to his being put into power, Drayco has proceded to thoroughly confuse his foes by...having about as much clue about what he is doing as anyone else does, IE none. His seemingly random and completely batshit tactics leave enemeis confused, disoriented and make him near impossible to predict or react to...but it's hardly an efficient tactic. How he's won anything is anyone's guess.

Attacking

3,000 Swordsmen, full iron armor with no helmets or shoes. We couldn't afford another 6,000 shoes.

3,000 Bowmen, carry a quiver of 40 traditional arrow and 10 arrows made to be lit on fire as flaming arrows, wear leather armor with large cloth cloaks that allow for blending into folliage, and can easily be brushed off in emergancy.

1,000 Horseback Pikemen. Wear light leather armor and skull-caps.

1,000 Horseback Archers, carrying a larger quiver strapped to horse's sides with 80 traditional arrows and 20 arrows meant for fire. Wear light armor with a basic helmet.

5 Battering Rams, no crew. They're there to strike fear into the enemies hearts. Because they're all painted and shizz. Spooky paint.

5 Trebuches, manned by 10 men each and firing chunks of rock and debris. Some of the projectiles can be lit on fire just before firing for fire damage. Naturally, this is used more often than it isn't.

Defending

3,000 Swordsmen, wears full body suit of iron armor and helmets painted weird colors.

3,500 Archers, wears light leather armor with the same quiver size as attackers.

1,000 dudes with hammers. Not warhammers, mind you, just small, normal-ass hammers. No armor.

10 cannons. They fire cannon balls. Somehow the cannonballs make fire when they explode.


Weapons and Armour:

Main: Steel Short Sword

Wooden Pike with Metal Tip

Wooden and Metal Bow and Arrow

Mutli-layered Wood and Metal Tower Shields


Armour: Chain-mail Undercoat covered by Steel Plate Armour (Equipped by all troops)

Tactics:

Keeping moral high was a essential factor Markus recognised. To do this, he made sure tactics were in place to smash enemies and make sure victory was ensured. Soldiers were taught two basic tactics that needed to be performed in battle and troops were always taught to stay together.

The standard structure for troops is for Archers remain in the centre or at the back, followed by pikemen then swordsmen. Pikemen and Swordsmen must maintain shields.

1, The first tactic is the pincer formation. In the event that overwhelming enemy forces are due, infantry should move around to shape a pincer to confront enemy forces, in the centre of the pincer should expand pikemen will form into a line and advanced outward of the pincer to eventually form a cirle defended by pikemen and swordsmen. In the core of the pincer archers will bombard enemy forces also.

2, The second tactic is the line formation. In the event that enemy forces overwhelm friendly troops. A line comprised of the swordsmen and pikemen prioritising the usage of their shields will form, the line will aim to have swordsmen and pikemen face the enemy so a suitable retreat can occur but additional swordsmen and pikemen will manage the edge of the back. Behind the line of swords and pikemen archers will form waves of arrows by two lines of bowmen. The first line will fire a wave then drop to a crouch and reload, at this moment, the second will stand up and fire their reloaded arrows. This combined barrage of arrows should help dismay enemy troops and allows a gradual retreat. The line formation can also allow the pincer formation to come into place should their be a change of advantage on the battlefield.

Should this be the defence of the colony, it has been constructed with defense in mind. The colony has an outer wall which contains the settlement and an inner wall which contains the market and then the main castle and ruling house. The outer wall is the most heavily guarded, the main gate is made of several thick layers of wood and metal and is banded together by two rows of cast iro and a cast iron stopper at the top and bottom of the gate. The walls have catapults built in and plently of space for bowmen to bombard enemy forces below. The walls have small peak holes to also fire through should the enemy return fire.

The same establishment has been made for the inner wall except their are no catapults. In the event of an enemy attack severals tactics have been established. 3/4 of bowmen are too attend wall while the remaining fraction will work with infantry. On the wall, the bowmen will use wave fire and independant fire. Wave fire involves a unifyed bombardment of Arrows all fired at once, this can be done in rounds but should enemies return fire or come too close, independant fire can be used. On the ground, swordsmen, pikemen and a fraction of bowmen will attend the main gate and await potential entrance. The pikemen will await the forces first with pikes pointing and shields up followed by the swordsmen also with shields up and swords ready, the behind the infantry bowmen will prepare to use wave fire for awaiting enemy. In the event of overwhelment, men will retreat to the inner wall and repeat the same tactic.

I will take on single battle challenges.

Army:

Training:

Before specific roles within the military force is assigned, all men undergo extensive training lasting roughly 7 weeks. This includes extensive running and training to build fighting mentality and moral and unite the men to work together. All are also briefed on fighting tactics and trained to ensure they are capable. After 4 weeks, men are able to choose what role they seek, in the case of a overwhelment of men for a specific role, people will be transfered alphabetically. Men will then recieve training on their chosen role and the weapons associated aswell as tactics involving this.

Leadership:

All 3 unit sections were led by a captain. These captain's were recognisable by their white cape and impressive helmet which has metal extensions featuring a feathers and a soft nilon covering up to their nose so only their eyes are visible. All 3 captains had the weaponary of their unit, but the Pikemen and Archer captains also had swords and the Pikemen's pike had a small flag of Asaea before the metal tip. These captains would communiation with eachother Markus to control tactics.

Strategy
