Sagamese Army
'Guardians of the Land'


Soldiers






The Sagamese Army has a long history, dating back to the foundation of Kamcha. Sagamese Soldiers are easily identified by their beige uniforms. Due to Kamcha's status an a union of Atolls and Archipelagos, the Army frequently use Naval Vessels to transport themselves from one place to another. During Landing Operations, Soldiers are mostly deployed from Transport planes and landing craft, while armored battalions are deployed from LSTs.

History

The Sagamese Army dates back 200 years, to the time when the various provinces of Kamcha formed a united army to serve the council of the time that governed the country. Wile the Council itself is no longer the position of power, the army it formed remains the basis for the modern Sagamese Army.

The 4W/23 is a four-wheeled light jeep utilized by the Sagamese Army as a light Reconnisance vehicle. It has no armor to speak of, so drivers must use its speed to escape danger.

Width: 2.19 metres
Height: 2.58 Metres



Armaments
None


Crew: 2

The 12W/82 is used for off-road transportation, its tank treads capable of traversing terrain a wheeled vehicle would become stuck in. A drawback of this is that it's slower as a result. During combat, these APCs also double as mobile mortar platforms.

Width: 2.33 Metres
Height: 2.38 Metres


Armaments

Kamcha's Armor capability is lacking compared to other nations, and the 16W/91 shows it. Underarmored for a medium tank, its 47mm main gun is only useful against lightly-armored vehicles and fortifications.


LC-16 Landing Craft




Dimensions
Length: 14.33 Metres
Width: 3.05 Metres
Draft: 0.79 Metres



Armaments
16x Soldiers


Crew: 1

The LC-16 is a lightly-armored landing craft utilized by the Army during landing operations. Cheap to make, they are unarmed and are rather uncomfortable to sit on. They are deployed in coastal waters from Tsuna Class Landing Ships.



Mayonaka Class Landing Ship Tank




Dimensions
Length: 80.5 Metres
Width: 9.1 Metres
Draft: 5.65 Metres



Armaments
15x Vehicles


Crew: 84

The Mayonaka Class was conceived as a heavy landing craft capable of transporting vehicles from a larger landing ship to potential landing beaches. The cancellation of the larger landing ship meant that the design had to be radically altered. The Mayonaka Class can carry 15 vehicles or a hundred soldiers directly to the shore and deploy them by landing ramp.



Horui Class Destroyer




Dimensions
Length: 102.6 Metres
Width: 9.1 Metres

Crew: 148

The Horui (Fortress) Class Destroyer was decommissioned by the Sagamese Navy several years ago due to being obsolete, compared to the newer Tāporin Class Destroyers. Seizing the Opportunity to get some fire support for their amphibious operations, the Army obtained the Horui Class Destroyers, repaired them and recommissioned them. During landing operations, the Horui Class can be counted on to be providing fire support to the troops.



Tsuna Class Landing Ship Infantry




Dimensions
Length: 170.527
Width: 26.19
Draft: 7.32 Metres



Armaments


Crew: 316

Just as the Mayonaka Class was influenced by the cancellation of the Mokusei Class Landing Ship, so was the Tsuna class. The Army had to settle for a viable substitution and settled on a variant of a passenger liner. These ships are lightly armed and require an escort during landing operations. They can deploy sixteen LC-16 Landing Craft. The Awaremi Class Hospital Ship is a Medical-oriented variant of this ship.
