Still always in the TL where Cadillac is bought by Hyundai group, after the bankruptcy of GM .....


A chart of the Division, Corps, Field Army, and Army Group shoulder patches for Army Group North, the Central Galactic Union Army's "model" army group, deployed primarily in the Inner Sphere and Inner Colonies sectors, with a few divisions stationed in the Outer Colonies sector. Most Army forces are deployed much farther afield in policing and counterinsurgency duties in the expansive Occupied Territories on the far side of the Milky Way.

The CGUA is organized with the Army Group (each with 1 million+ soldiers, commanded by either a Field Marshal or a Colonel General) as its "operational building block". An Army Group typically operates within a defined sector of space, and most astrographical sector High Commands have multiple Army Groups assigned to them. The operational standard is to station some Corps and Divisions, especially reserves, airborne, and infantry divisions, on major populated worlds to maintain security (though occasionally a single division will garrison a sparsely-populated star system, with its separate brigades garrisoned on a handful of worlds), while most armored forces are concentrated on "hub" worlds. In a crisis, these forces can be spacelifted to orbital spaceports and rapidly redeployed to a "hot zone"; the advent of Alcubierre drives allowed transport spacecraft to instantaneously warp to any hot zone within a 1000 lightyear radius of a "hub" planet, enabling quick response to crises within 48 hours. This system was developed by, and became well-established within, the Terran Empire by the early 27th century, as a way to reduce the size of the military without sacrificing effectiveness, and allowed the Empire considerable flexibility in responding to colonial revolts, terrorist incidents, and frontier incursions. Divisions would be periodically rotated between garrison assignments, to prevent generals from growing too attached to any one location and seeking to become a warlord.

The Army was expanded greatly during the Great War, and most forces were redeployed into front-line positions for capturing enemy-held worlds. When the war was concluded, the new Central Galactic Union needed to significantly reduce the size of the Army. Between April 2675 and February 2676, around 75% of army divisions were demobilized. The public perception was that, having completed the conflict and won the Final Victory, the Army could be shrunk to a size of strict necessity. Much of the Terran operational doctrine was retained for its flexibility, albeit synthesized with the Orion Army's and Sagittarian Army's defensive doctrines emphasizing air defense forces and intelligence-gathering.

Not all CGUA units have names or bear the unique heraldry and heritage of old Earth units, in fact the vast majority do not. Army Group North has an unusually highly concentration of such "named" units, which carry the heritage, unit insignia, and history of self-same numbered or named units. In reality, these old Earth military formations were disbanded, recreated, and merged many times between the 20th century and 2247, when all Earth nations were merged into a single member state within the Terran Federation. These divisions were constituted in their current forms mostly in the early 26th century, as the Terran Imperial Army expanded to put down revolts by feudal warlords in the outer colonies. To inspire greater morale and esprit de corps, many divisions and corps were granted the names and heritages of units from Earth's earlier military history, and the accompanying unique insignia and coats of arms. Some divisions, mainly American, German, and Chinese ones, had retained their identities after being "rolled into" the Terran Federation's military in 2247, but most of the post-23rd century Terran divisions were reflagged after to accommodate the new policy.

Army Group North is composed mainly of divisions whose heritage is drawn from the long-disbanded American, British, and Northwestern European militaries. Its own designation comes from the 20th century NATO command Northern Army Group. The Terran military establishment is heavily drawn from the command structure and heritage of NATO, its North Pacific counterpart in the late 21st century, and the UN Security Forces of the 22nd century. Both the First and Second Field Armies were reconstituted in 2556 with the heritage of early 20th century British expeditionary armies; most of the named divisions were mustered in the early 2500s, though some like the 12th (Guards) Cavalry were reconstituted in 2676 from units demobilized immediately after the Great War. The First (Guards) Corps is unique in that it was created in 2676 as the garrison command for Earth, and the Constance and Brandenburg divisions are the main Army rapid reaction units stationed permanently on Earth; however, its other subordinate divisions cycle between garrison duty on Earth and garrison duty on other worlds.

real prediction

By a funny coincidence, by a similar timeframes as your 54 star flag, in a soft scifi near future comic I started but got carried away on worldbuilding, the USA also ends up with 54 stars on the flag! Though it lasts longer, as the USA basically runs out of land to make into states.

That sounds cool! I'd love to read it if you posted it anywhere. :)

P.S. The extra states are Antarctica, the Moon, and South Tyrol

In my comic idea (BTW most worldbuilding wouldn't even matter, as I said I got carried away), The 4 extra states are Puerto Rico, Guam, The US Virgin islands and Superior. My in-universe justification for why Superior and The Virgin islands got to be states but DC didn't fluctuates, but I usually imagine that it involved some political compromise.


As a continuation from the previous: the army, corps, and divisional insignia of the 21st Army Group. Formed in 2552 under the revived lineage of the ancient British Army of the Rhine, the 21st Army Group came to include some of the most prestigious divisions in the Terran Army. The army reorganizations in the 2590s, 2650s, and 2680s reflagged several divisions with the heritage of old British Army divisions, though the illustrious XVIII Airborne Corps revived that of an American army corps, and its divisions likewise were focused on several defunct American airborne units.

Most of the forces of the 21st Army Group are deployed in garrison and rapid response duty in the Outer Colonies, most of which is relatively stable. However, pre-war mobilization had seen them rotated throughout the Aquila Stream and Banat provinces in the spinward edge of the Terran Empire's frontier, and its divisions had seen much combat against rebels even prior to the Great War. During the war, they were among the first army groups deployed in ground warfare against the Soviet Federation in the trailing Orion Arm front.

Venusian Imperial Armed Forces Organisation - overall.png

Organisation of the Imperial Venusian Armed Forces. Stars indicate the rank of the commander/office holder for the military post. 1 star Brigadier General/Commodore to 5 stars Marshal/Grand Admiral (Venusian Empire does have 6-7 official languages, and technically the official English title for the 5 star rank is Field Marshal/Admiral of the Fleet and the Air Force uses the Commonwealth system of "air officers" rather than simply having general ranks).
Venusian Imperial Armed Forces Organisation - service branches.png

This graph showcases the organisation of the service brances in more detail.
Exemplar Theater - Mars.png

And finally I thought what the Theater Commands are might not be clear, so here is the organisation of the Mars Theater as an example. The Theater Commands being the combined armed forces of each branch in a planetary system, united under a single commander/staff (the said commander might theoretically be of any of the service branches but is almost always from either the Ground Force or the Space Force).

The main combatant subordinate units, with some explanation of their organisation, below. Orbital Drop Assault Force is included under the Ground Force.

On Venus: Western and Eastern Armies are based in Aphrodite continent on Venus, western half of which is mostly Turkish populated while eastern half is Japanese populated. 7th Corps is in the Bengali, Nigerian and Chinese areas while 8th Corps is in Filipino and Thai colonised regions. 10th Corps is in Argentine, Mexican and Tamil colonies, while the 11th Corps is in Malaysian, Indian and Indonesian areas. And the 12th Corps is in the East African and Brazilian regions. On Earth: 1st Army is based in Northeast Asia, 2nd in Europe, Western Asia and North Africa, 3rd in South Asia, Australia and Antarctica, 4th in Subsaharan Africa, 5th in South America and 6th in North America. On Luna, the 32nd Corps is centered on Oceanus Procellarum, with the 31st Corps covering rest of the Moon. On Mars, the 7th Army is in the Tharsis region and Valles Marineris, 8th on rest of the Coast, while the 9th Army covers the southern half of the planet, mostly centered on Sea of Hellas and Sea of Argyre.
Guards Brigade is an independent unit on Venus consisting of two infantry regiments (each consisting of two battalions). The Imperial Guard Regiment, responsible for the protection of the monarch, the imperial family and imperial residences, continuing the traditions of the Japanese Guards (thought now once again a military rather than police unit); and the Prime Ministerial Guard Regiment, continuing the traditions of the Turkish Presidential Guard Regiment (including the turquoise uniforms).
Standard Composition: Armoured Brigades consist of 3 Armoured Battalions, 1 Mechanized Infantry Battalion, 1 Artillery Battalion and 1 Anti Aircraft Artillery Battalion; Mechanized Infantry Brigades consist of 1 Armoured Battalion, 2 Mechanized Infantry Battalions and 1 Artillery Battalion; Commando Brigades consist of 3 Commando Battalions and 1 Artillery Battalion; Motor Rifle Brigades consist of 1 Armoured Battalion and 3 Motor Rifle Battalions; Engineer Brigades consist of 6 Engineer Battalions; Infantry Regiments consist of 3 Infantry Battalions; Orbital Drop Assault Regiments consist of 3 Orbital Drop Assault Battalions; Artillery Regiments consist of 3 Artillery Battalions; Anti-Aircraft Artillery Regiments consist of 3 AAA Battalions.
Armoured Battalions consist of MBTs, Mechanized Infantry Battalions consist of infantry embarked on IFVs and APCs and a self propelled mortar company. Artillery Battalions have both gun and rocket based artillery pieces, Anti-Aircraft Artillery Battalions have both gun and missile based artillery pieces. Both Artillery and AAA units tend to be heavier on guns compared to rockets/missiles, and artillery pieces of both types are self propelled. Commando Battalions are light infantry units, with airmobile APCs. Orbital Drop Assault Battalions are heavily armoured infantry units and include integral anti-tank and light artillery companies. Motor Rifle Battalions are effectively Mechanized Infantry Battalions, adapted for operations without breathable athmosphere and in low gravity (basically on dwarf planets, natural satellites and asteroids, where while fast transportation to relatively far locations via vehicles might be needed artillery is not usable due to all human habitation being enclosed), also including integral anti-tank and very light artillery assets as well as MANPADS. Infantry Battalions are basically Motor Rifle Battalions, minus the vehicles.

Battle, Carrier, Cruiser and Escort Forces are more administrative rather than functional units. For actual missions units are formed out of the flotillas (thought non-escort (especially Battle or Carrier) flotillas may be divided for missions). Battle and Carrier Flotillas consist of 4 vessels (ideally of the same class), Cruiser Flotillas consist of 6 vessels (doctrinal differences exist. Either of the same class or 2-3 missile cruisers with 4-3 gun cruisers), while escort flotillas (destroyers, frigates and avisos) consist of 8 vessels (generally of the same class in each). The carrier flotillas numbering 16 and above are of Escort Carriers rather than Fleet Carriers or Drone Carrying Missile Cruisers, consisting of 6 vessels each. Plutonian Fleet also responsible with patrolling other colonised Trans-Neptunian Objects.
Full numbers: 60 Battleships, 60 Carriers, 84 Escort Carriers, 198 Cruisers, 208 Destroyers, 240 Frigates, 224 Avisos + numerous Cutters/Orbital Patrol Craft and Orbital Defense Craft.

Only Venus, Earth and Mars have Maritime assets as they are the only planets with surface liquids with the exception of the Hydrocarbon liquid bodies of Titan (which do have some civilian vessels on them). Thought there are civilian submarines in the moon Europa. Of the subdivisions of the Maritime Forces the Submarines are the main combatant force, Surface Action Command consists of Amphibious Assault Ships and ASW/Anti-Missile Escorts, intended to mostly facilitate the travel of troops to places where travel by sea is more practical compared to travel by air or descent from orbit as well as auxiliary vessels, with the Fleet Air Force consisting of maritime patrol aircraft. Of the three planetary commands Mars is by far the smallest (with a Submarine Flotilla in the Sea of Hellas and rest of the force deployed in the North Polar Ocean), hence it's Amphibious Marine force is the smallest as well. With Venus housing a full division and Earth a full corps of three divisions. Venus Command possesses more submarines than Earth command but a smaller marine force. This is mostly a result of Venus being long since pacified and not needing much of a force, the only reason for a full division instead of a brigade is A. Venus being a rather wet planet and B. Tradition (Imperial Marine Division first formed as a combination of Japanese and Turkic Amphibious Brigades that existed on Venus at the time of unification to form the Venusian Empire). Thought while Earth was the last inner planet to be conquered it also has been pacified for long and does not truly require such a large force as such Earth Command's Amphibious Marine Corps will likely be downgraded to a single Division soon. Various Brigades each consist of 3 amphibious battalions, a tank battalion and an artillery battalion as well as support companies.
Each Amphibious Task Force is attached to an Amphibious Brigade. Submarine Flotillas consist of 4 nuclear powered ballistic missile submarines, Amphibious Assault Flotillas consist of 3 landing helicopter docks, Landing Ship Flotillas consist of 3 dock landing ships and Destroyers Flotillas consist of 4 AAW/ASW destroyers.

Only Venus, Earth and Mars have Air Force assets other than Anti-Orbit Defense Commands as they are the only planets with athmospheres where air-breathing engines are possible. As no other planet or moon is Terraformed or expected to be Terraformed (the Saturnian moon Titan being the only possible exception but it's athmosphere is not useful for the operation of the engines the Air Force uses). Transport in said bodies, if flying mostly uses rockets/spaceplanes or battery powered rotor VTOLs.
Fighter Groups are composed of two unmanned multirole fighter squadrons, a squadron of unmanned air superiority fighters and a squadron of unmanned aerospace fighters (spaceplanes) as well as one Liason and SAR Squadron. Bomber Groups are composed of a number of unmanned jet bomber squadrons. Venusian and Earther Combat Air Forces include one AWACS Groups of three squadrons each, with one more squadron on Mars. Air Defense Groups consist of varying numbers SAM squadrons while Anti-Orbit Groups similarly consist of surface to orbit missile squadrons, usually on relatively large bodies also augmented with a small number of ground-to-orbit gun/mass driver batteries. Airlift Groups consist of varying numbers of transport/cargo squadrons. Supply and Maintenance Groups are mostly land based units, thought do include a small number of tankers. Some tankers are unmanned but many such non-combat aircraft (including AWACS, Transport, Cargo, Liason and SAR aircraft) are manned.

Your average Rifle Platoon in the Central Galactic Union Army, circa 2694.

While the operational focus of the human militaries have vacillated, the tactical focus has always been on hard-hitting maneuver units that act at varying intersections of deployability and battlefield mobility. The logistical constraints of occupying hundreds of thousands of planets, equipping garrisons with air support sufficient to their tasks, and the general trend of counterinsurgency warfare has seen the Army rely on highly-deployable infantry, which emphasizes its ability to be airlifted anywhere on its garrison world at short notice, or even extracted to space transports to be rapidly deployed on other nearby worlds. The basic unit of the infantry is the rifle platoon, equipped with wheeled armored vehicles (hover vehicles exist, but are mostly for fast-moving tank and armored cavalry forces).

In this image, the platoon is typical of mechanized forces attached to Infantry Battalions, equipped with APCs, whereas infantry attached to Combined Arms/Armor Battalions would be equipped with more heavily-armed IFVs. A typical Infantry Battalion would include nine rifle platoons and three mortar platoons organized into three rifle companies and a mortar company, alongside a headquarters company; a Combined Arms Battalion would have two rifle companies and two tank companies. Due to thorough mechanization of all spaceborne forces, the distinction between Grenadier and Infantry at the battalion level is fairly insignificant, and more of a matter of how its parent division is organized (Infantry divisions' maneuver element is composed of four infantry brigades, Armored divisions are composed of four Armored brigades, and Grenadier divisions are split two-and-two). There is a more significant difference when it comes to Light Infantry, such as infantry attached to mountain, airborne, or light divisions, which use motorized transport instead and have one less maneuver brigade than the heavier divisions.

A mechanized rifle platoon is composed of one officer and 40 enlisted soldiers; the Platoon Leader is typically a junior Second Lieutenant, though a First Lieutenant can sometimes be found in charge. They are assisted by a senior noncommissioned officer, the Platoon Sergeant, typically a Sergeant First Class. The Platoon headquarters section is rounded out by a Radio Operator, who handles the long-range communications equipment as well as command-and-control for the platoon scout drone (which may be armed with a heavy machine gun, a laser antipersonnel weapon system, or a single-shot compact kinetic energy missile launcher; the Combat Medic or field trauma specialist; and a Motor Vehicle Operator, who operates the FV31 Command Vehicle and directs the main vehicle weapon, though they may also engage in combat since the vehicle and its weapon can be directed by an artificial intelligence. It is not uncommon for the radio and vehicle specialists to be androids due to the high level of multitasking required.

Three of its squads are set up in roughly the same way: at the head is a Squad Leader, typically a Staff Sergeant; it is divided into two teams led by either a Sergeant or a Corporal-- an assault team that pushes forward and provides suppressive fire, and a maneuver team that flanks an opponent. The Alpha Team usually includes at least one Rifleman armed with a 20mm semiautomatic grenade launcher; Bravo Team includes the squad's MVO for highest mobility. Both fireteams include an automatic rifleman with a light machine gun, to provide considerable firepower at the smallest level of combat, in conjunction with the FV30's weapon system.
The fourth squad is a heavy weapons squad, with one team equipped with an anti-tank weapon (typically a guided anti-tank missile launcher, though tactical laser weapons or pulsed plasma projectors are also available) and the other team equipped with a medium machine gun, with attendant assistant gunner and ammunition carriers. This gives the platoon greater firepower capability, with small units entrusted to carry out more far-reaching missions and tasks due to this organic fire support.

This helps the Army stretch its forces as wide as possible while still retaining effectiveness. The Union comprises some 2,745,000 worlds under some degree of military occupation; even with over 224 billion soldiers in the Army alone and some 457 billion in the entire Defense Forces, that is still only about 1% of the human population, and that needs to stretch very wide. The average planetary garrison is two divisions-- though in reality, many sparsely inhabited worlds make do with far less, and many Occupied Territories, Alien Protectorates, and densely-populated worlds require far more.

Continuing from the previous series, here we see the battle order for Army Group Equatoria, a force of some 1,500,000 soldiers spread between its 10 corps plus supporting units. Compared to Army Group North and the 21st Army Group, more of Equatoria's units derive their heritage from formations raised in Earth's global south and east, with several divisions originating from the 20th and 21st century armies of China, Russia, Africa, West Asia, and Southeast Asia, though many also derive from American and German army histories. Equatoria's divisions are often rotated into expeditionary duties in the Outer Colonies, though many saw service during the Great War and the Pirate War.
While the army has generally abandoned using command positions as a sinecure, the older Terran aristocracy is nevertheless well-embedded in the military establishment. This is due in part to the emphasis placed on military tradition by the Terrans and their allies, the Orionese. Army Group Equatoria is commanded by Field Marshal Joseph-Isidore Ruanda, titular African Emperor; despite his lofty peerage, Ruanda is a career soldier who served during the Great War in command of an armored division, and somewhat shunned his noble title. He is also known as a confidante and supporter of Chancellor Maximilian, which may be partly responsible for his advancement in the military.

In spite of the impressive-sounding scale of Equatoria's numbers, its size is typical of the Army Group structure, which can range up to 3 million soldiers depending on the number of Field Armies assigned to it. Due to the sheer size of the Central Galactic Union Army, there are some 39,000 Army Groups spread throughout the galaxy, most of them assigned to the Occupied Territories or the Autonomous Alien Protectorates. On average, each of the roughly 3,009 interstellar military districts has about a dozen Army Groups; in practice, the administrative sectors have about 8 Army Groups per district, while the OTs and AAPs tend to have 24 per district to fulfill defense requirements-- this is augmented also by Marines and the airborne State Security Forces. CGU forces in the occupied and protected zones have to not only conduct frequent counterinsurgency operations, but also provide military assistance to civil authorities, and maintain readiness against organized insurrectionary threats. The 2679 Far Rim Revolt proved the necessity of considerable occupational force, when postwar garrisons were overwhelmed by insurrectionists with armored battalions on several dozen worlds, coupled with a terroristic bombing campaign. Ever since, the CGUA has maintained a considerable armored presence on both occupied territories, and the "home country" of the human-colonized sectors, as well as high deployability. This is reflected by operational doctrine mandating that every Expeditionary Corps be structured to include at least one Airborne Infantry Division, trained for air assault and positioned with a high state of readiness, supported by a mix of armored and infantry forces with organic artillery, aviation, engineering, and logistical support to allow independent operations down to the brigade level.
