–Common statement found on RWA posters

Proudly bearing the "reactionary" title, the Restored White Armies are a paramilitary organisation vehemently opposed to what they call the "dangerous ideologies of modernism". Although starting out as a localised movement, they have since grown to an international organisation calling for all nations to unify into one absolute monarchy. They take their name from the White Army fighting against the Red Army in Russia, declaring that they have been restored and can now fulfil their duties of ensuring complete superiority of an absolute monarchy and an upper class raised to great power. They despise all elementals, considering them to be an impurity that must be cleansed from the human race. Critics accuse Arekusanda Aiko of jealousy.

History

The official history of the Restored White Armies is that they were formed as a response to aggression from the GWU in Japan and slowly grew to international standing.

In reality, Vamana Uldericks desired to tap into the right-wing extremist manpower for his own goals, but as the leader of the IWU he had no hope of tapping into anything even remotely right wing. He personally tracked down the most reactionary individual he could find, and in secrecy so great nobody else today so much as suspects a thing he contacted him in disguise about forming a paramilitary group, claiming to be a very rich gentleman interested in remaining rich and away from the attacks of the IWU. The ruse worked, with Aiko - already a particularly gullible and uneducated individual whose only real strengths were fanaticism and the ability to inspire others - being completely fooled. A few transactions and some advice later and the Restored White Armies formed. To Vamana, either one winning in the end was a victory, and now he had twice the chance of winning. He merely needed to disguise himself as the same gentleman and Aiko would eat out of his hand.

Notable Criticisms

The Restored White Armies have come under repeated fire for many actions, including links to assaults on minorities, drug cultivation, homophobic attacks, insurrections and honour killings. One of the most commonly criticised actions is their engineering of the Bombing of Jerusalem and the Gassing of Damascus, which killed or seriously wounded nearly 230,000 civilians combined.

Japan

The actions of the RWA in Japan are a major source of criticism in the world, with one particular organisation set up to record all humanitarian violations performed by the RWA in Japan alone. Unfortunately, however, the organisation was targeted for eradication by the RWA due to issues concerning the publishing of unwanted information that may affect how people see them on the world stage. The leaders of the organisation were killed during an unexplained house fire in Sector III, though the RWA claimed credit.

The Tokyo Massacre marked the beginning of a futile escalation between Sector III and the RWA. The RWA performed the Tokyo Massacre by marching large numbers of insurgents into the city, storming every house and shooting every civilian on sight. The RWA claimed they did this to eradicate a seat of power for Sector III. Sector III responded by levelling Okinawa, possibly using nuclear weapons in the process. The RWA responded with the Gassing of Aomori and allowing all units to deploy chemical weaponry against the forces of Sector III, while Sector III passed legislation to allow commanders to call in tactical nuclear strikes against RWA bases.

  • A disputed beginning to the escalation came nearly a month earlier where the RWA, suffering from a temporary lack in rifles, began to deploy suicide squads to make use of the manpower. The suicide squads would be issued with a bayonet, gas mask and a special vest containing quantities of the nerve agent sarin, kept at a gas state. Their only orders were to wait in ambush until the enemy got close and charge forth. The squads, upon being shot in the chest, would release the gas into the area, hopefully getting those who shot them. Unfortunately it was discovered that a survivable would was made lethal due to the gas dissolving into the blood and entering the wound. The plan hinged on them being shot, as the clumsy gas masks made it extremely difficult to fight. Sector III responded by issuing all soldiers NBC kits and warned the RWA to cease or Sector III would respond harshly. This warning is believed to have influenced the legislation allowing the use of tactical nuclear weaponry. Nonetheless, the RWA ceased the use shortly after, although that was due to running out of nerve gas and having their armaments problem fixed.

The Gassing of Aomori was a retaliation to the possibly nuclear bombing of Okinawa, where the RWA deployed extremely large quantities of blistering agents and a chlorine-phosgene mix into the city in an attempt to eradicate the civilian population. The incident and the terrible effects resulted in a Sector III mandate requiring all citizens to carry gas masks on them while inside Japan. Sector III responded by using strategic nuclear weapons to level Kitakata, eradicating a prominent RWA recruitment base.

The Torching of Kyoto was a major event during the Japanese conflict that marked the high point of escalation. Due to Sector III fortifying the city to the point of making it an impenetrable fortress to the RWA insurgents, the use of dioxygen difluoride was ordered to level all fortifications. It worked admirably, reducing the city and its fortifications to nothing more than ashes, burning concrete, glass, everything. In retaliation Sector III was placed on highest alert and considerations were made to use strategic nuclear weapons to completely destroy the entire Japanese islands before the RWA had a chance at deploying it against a Chinese city. However, a top leader managed to negotiate a deal not to use nuclear weaponry against the RWA if the RWA refused to use any more dioxygen difluoride. The RWA, having completely exhausted their stocks in the Torching of Kyoto and with no obvious way to replenish them, quickly agreed. For propaganda purposes, Sector III claimed that the fire was natural.

Military

The RWA has a military based on form before function. One of the biggest examples of this is in the highly-conspicuous uniforms they wear when performing any RWA duties, including combat duties. This has quite obvious and frequently fatal repercussions in the field, but the RWA view is that someone who is cowardly enough to wear inconspicuous uniforms unworthy of being a member.

Originally their tactics were founded on the belief that as weapons became longer and longer ranged and recoil from long-ranged automatic weapons made accurately firing into a mob of opponents extremely difficult to do then neo-Napoleonic tactics were required to stay effective. This required the forming up of units into large groups each armed with bolt-action long range rifles to pick off units and slowly dwindle the enemy army while artillery would pound the targets identified by radio. This line of thought was, naturally, extremely errenous and one that Arekusanda clutched close to his heart and refused to listen to all military advisors on the matter.

The first encounter with the IWU demonstrated to the RWA just what a folly this was. In a typical urban combat between roughly 75 RWA personnel and 20 IWU personnel, the RWA in their extremely conspicuous uniforms were ambushed by the IWU, who notably were not wearing highly conspicuous uniforms and were indistinguishable from civilians until the guns came out. At the close ranges that were perfect for firing their weapons despite the initial numerical advantage held by the RWA their unit was whittled down quite quickly to only a few dozen, who promptly called in artillery support. However, thanks to the artillery being promptly unavailable to fire anywhere due to the compressing nature of the urban environment it was entirely unavailable. The RWA lost the day as their chain of command was targeted thanks to having distinctive hats and the survivors fled. The survivors were later captured and executed.

The new "standardised" equipment is a ten-round bolt-action rifle reloaded with stripper clips. Every fifth unit (referred to as the Imperial Grenadier Guards) is armed with a revolver carbine to improve the rate of fire and effectiveness in close quarters, as well as two hand grenades. All units are equipped with bicycles and bicycle training is the only required training for new recruits.

"Four Horsemen" Doctrine

I wonder what sort of man I found, one despicable enough to not only plan such acts of unthinkable cruelty but to unleash his darkest dreams upon the world.

–Vamana Uldericks in an internal reflection after learning about the doctrine.

Differences to the International Worker's Union

While it is quite true that the RWA is quite similar (except ideologically) to the IWU, there are some noticeable differences.

Military

RWA UniformThe military arm of the RWA receives no training by the organisation itself, instead relying on what skills it had received in previous jobs. As the vast majority of recruits are ex-military, secret service or police, this is a way to avoid wasting time and resources on training them. This however comes at the disadvantage of having wildly varying skill levels. Furthermore, without formal training officers are in the habit of launching suicidal attacks in the heat of the moment. Finally, discipline is terrible, with people going charging off in the middle of combat, although they avoid poor morale by shooting at anyone who would retreat.

Economic

While the IWU struggles to make ends meet at times due to their rather isolationistic economic policy, the RWA has puppetted the South American Zone B, ensuring a steady flow of goods. Upper and even middle-class strata have a habit of supporting the RWA due to them being perceived as not as bad as the IWU, and one of the few capable of fighting them well enough as frontline expendables.

Ranks

RWA ranks

While the IWU uses a much looser and egalitarian system of ranks, at least in the lower ranks, the RWA has a very strict system of military ranks (although due to their small size there is no rank past the equivalent of Lt Col), which is one more criteria for the paramilitary organisation. Disobedience is punished with death.
