Thanks! :)
Anyone interested in properly organizing their military should check the basic and advanced organuzation threads I wrote up (you can find them and a whole lot more here at my Quick and Dirty Guide to War ), or

Notes on the military of Daistallia (note that this is still a rough draft).

I would appreciate comments, corrections, addendums, etc.

Notes on the Daistallian Military
Moto: Semper Adapto (I always adapt)
Conscription: All males are subject to conscription at age 20. Approxumately 85% are accepted. 15% are rejected due to physical or mental imparement, religious objection, or serious criminal records. Females may volunteer. Females are subject to the same rigors as males. Roughly 20% of all eligible 20 year old females volunteer, and 80% are accepted.
Conscripts serve a basic 6 months training and selection term. 10% or all conscripts are selected to go on to a further 2 year term.
Conscripts not selected go directly into the militia.
Militia: The milkitia consists of all conscripts not selected for a 2 year active term, all conscripts who have finished their 2 year term, and all professionals who have retired. All of the above are required to serve 10 years in the militia. Incentives are offered to those who continue their militia service beyond 10 years.
Militia units are required to train 2 days of every month, and 1 full week every year. Militia units are made up entierly of personnel from the same geographic region, in order that they may be familiar with the local terrain and conditions.
Militia combat units are primarily light infantry (65%) with armor, artillery, air force, and naval units making up the bulk.
Regular forces: Regular forces aremsde up of 2 year conscripts and long service volunteers. All 2 year conscripts are given the option of volunteering for further service. All long term service members are 2 year conscripts who volunteer for a 10 year term of service. Approximately 50% of 2 year conscripts volunteer, due to indoctrination, patriotism, and high incentives. Roughly 50% of all long term volunteeres stay for a second or third term.
General Doctrine:
The army works on a central/highly decentralization system. Small unit leaders have a high degree of autonomy to practice maneuver warfare while accomplishing larger tactical and operational goals. High-tempo defensive maneuver warfare is considered to be the standard doctrine, however, debate and consideration of various options is encouraged (to a point).
Unit cohesion and integrity is emphasized from the very beginning of service.
Combat leadership is seen as more demanding than technicians know how.
NCO Corps: Extraordinary tough and demanding training is expected from all NCOs. Conscripts generally are not sent to NCO academies or otherwise promoted, unless they intend to continue in service. The squad leader academy is very demanding, and higher NCO schools and academies are even more demanding.
Officer Corps: The officer corps makes up a small percentage of the force - 5%. Commanders and NCOs held leadership and command positions for long periods of time - 3 to 5 years minimum, and in many cases longer.
Promotions and selections are based at the regimental or brigarde level.
Promotions and selections are entrusted to the
regiment and the regimental commander.
Due to tough standards being up front, officers are required to focus on studying their profession without having to worry about “pleasing the boss.”
Three tracks dominate the officer corps: The General Staff, regimental (or line), and technicians.
All officers began in the enlisted ranks with top
soldiers becoming NCOs, and then top NCOs becoming officers.
To become an officer, one must first be an NCO and then serve with a regiment as a “ensign.”
After a period of 3-6 months, there is a demanding three-day examination, followed by an examined of character by a board of regimental officers. Standards for obtaining a commission are very strenuous.
Training: The training of the enlisted and NCO corps is extraordinary. Military education begins with a 6 month basic training and selection course. Further education in more specisfic fields is given to a select 10% of conscripts, who go on to 2 year terms.
The military education system focuses on the art of war, the testing of character, and how to think holistically.
NCO training begins with the Squad Leader school (4 months), continues with the basic NCO academy (6 months), and the advanced NCO academy (6 months).
NCOs have many other opprotunities to further their educations, and are expected to maximize these opprotunities.

Not bad. I wish I could organize everything by battalions and regiments, but with hundreds of divisions that tends to be an excercise in pure monotony. Or mind crushing frustration. Either way.

Of note is that your Artillery Corps seem to have no actual artillery. You have the ADA, CSS, CS, PSYOP, etc, but you have no artillery brigades or battalions.

Each corps has a corps artillery listed in the attatched units. I guess I will have to clarify that. :)

(I will however note that most of the units have yet to be fully fleshed out)

Modified OP to clarify the corps artillery brigades.
