« on: April 10, 2018, 07:06:48 AM »
1) Name / Title?

2) Location for Base of Operations. Preferably Offshore? (Isle of Man / Isle of Wight / Channel Islands / Belize?)

3) Force composition? French Foreign Legion has 8,900 men in eleven regiments and one sub-unit, So would the British 'Foreign Legion' be a simularly organised?

4) Do I include a Para capable force as well?

5) Small Arms? Anything but the L85 (More like FN SCAR-H / H&K HK417 / H&K G36 / Suggestions?)

6) Armour? Standard, Re-furbed FV430 series (Bulldog) Non-standard, LAV-25 / Boxer / M1128? What are the advantages / Disadvantages between Tracked v Wheeled Armour?

7) Air support? Limit to either Rotary Wing Vertical Assault and / or Gunship, or rely on AAC

8) Can any one think of anything I've missed

 1 - Ministry for/of Foreign Missions. Sounds diplomatic enough...
 2 - Pre-1962, Jamaica after that, Belize. Gibraltar for Europe/N. Africa/Near East. Hong Kong for the Far East, Diego Garcia for the Indian Ocean, southern Africa and the Falklands.
 3- Probably more ships & planes.
 4 - Yes!
 For vehicles and weaponry, a small but significant number of enemy combatant weapons, like AK-47s and BTR-40s/BRDM-2/BTR-60-BTR-80
