While the Cornerians would rather remain peaceful, many have mistaken such a desire for weakness. As such, they maintain a rather advanced military in case of attack. Their Navy enjoys the company of skilled pilots.
Their army is well armored and equipped. While it has established several military bases around all of its systems, its Home Division positions itself so that it can defend the Capital in the event of an attack.
The Cornerian Army is the primary defense force of the Cornerian home and colonies. They were formed shortly after the formation of the Cornerians themselves. Even though the Cornerians are peace loving, they still have a formible military to defend themselves. Which often lead to others demise. They are often thought to be weak and non-advanced. Despite the obvious shows of technological advances of their society. A good example is their unique means of propulsion, the Gravity Diffusion drive and helium fuel cell. The military is split into 2 branches. The Army and the Navy. The Air force and Marines were just made into a section of each branch. Hence the Cornerian Army Air Corps and the Cornarian Naval Marines.
The Cornerian ArmyEdit
The Army is their primary means of land combat. They are highly trained and advanced. Most soldiers being graduates of the Military Academy. The Army is divided 3 sections. The Infantry, Mechanized Infantry, and Heavy Infantry. All soldiers are trained in infantry combat then transferred and further trained in different jobs. The normal infantry fights on foot. Rather self explained. The mechanized infantry fights on foot but also handles Armored Personel Carriers, light tanks, and light AA. The Heavy Infantry is trained to use heavier weapons. Such as tanks, heavy Anti-Air, orbital defense stations, and anti-ship gun implacements. There is also a small sect, known as the Cornarian Orbital Drop Troopers. A highly trained sect of soldiers used to drop behind enemy lines from aircraft or from orbit. They are the special operations section of the Army. Photos of the Army will be shown in the Gallary.
General of the ArmyEdit
General Howard G. Benson is the commander of the Army. Former CODT and graduate of the CMA, he is a highly decorated soldier and long time veteran. He commands the Army with no room for error. He is very passionate about his job and will defend his nation with his life.
General Benjamin H. Carson. Also a graduate of the CMA. He is a Naval Marine who later reenlisted as a Navy Seamen. Soon worked his way up to be promoted to ship captain, and later General of the Navy. He is a no room for error leader who will defend the Cornerian ways with his life. He commands "The Inquister" flagship of company A. They are assigned to defend the homeworld of the Cornerians.
The Cornerian operates their own fleet of space craft. They are the orbital defense section of the military. Like the Army, there is no Marines. The Marines are sectioned and included as part of the Navy. The Marines conduct ship boarding. While the Navy supports. The Navy has the joy of operating some of the most advanced ships known to the Andromeda system. Being propelled by gravity diffusion and being some of the fastest ships known. The Cornerian Marines are trained in the art of using boarding craft to board and take over ships. Turning the tide of battle. They are trained in using transmat systems to transmat onto bigger ships and taking them over. The Navy uses a formation called "Battle Formation V" a unstoppable formation where the ships get into formation and by using their advanced weaponary and speed. They use a speed and force to overwhelm and break through enemy lines. Kinda like a Blitzkreig strategy.
The Cornerian holds a joint research with the local Space Dynamics weapon manufactuing company. They research and upgrade their weapons and tech. They are currently trying to make super soldiers. A soldier that would be a think tank. Not as cumbersome as the heavy siege infantry but as mobile as the shock troopers with the power of the siege infantry. It is currently in the research phase. Trying to compact the siege infantry armor to a more compact practical model.
