Enemy Territory Survival

The ASDU armed services have extensive expertise on helping its servicemen survive behind enemy lines and/or occupied territory.  The main course for this is known as Enemy Territory Survival (similar to the United States Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape training).  There are three phases: Biome Survival, Imprisonment Resistance, and Enemy Evasion.  Each one lasts roughly a month or more, with some [classified] additional courses.  This course is held at Fort Paulson year-round and has been running since early 2000.  The people who usually go through the course are civilian employees, aircrews, and special operations forces at high risk of capture.

Biome Survival

This course focuses on surviving in different biomes (Forests, Jungles, Tundras, Deserts, Water, etc).  Candidates learn woodcraft, advanced camouflage techniques, covert communication, land navigation, and how to build tools.  Examples include:

-Building tools out of wood

-Natural direction indicators such as moss and leaning trees

-Setting traps for edible wildlife

-Utilizing various materials for shelter

Imprisonment Resistance

The candidates are “captured” by instructors disguised as enemies carrying magazine-fed paintball guns.  They are held in a mock prison for a month while being advised and trained by actual Prisoners of War on how to defy and hassle interrogators during the business week.  On weekends, the men are taught how to attempt escape from the prison through CCD, sabotage, and even building tools to covertly escape.  The candidates are also taught cardinal rules of being a Prisoner of War, they are:

1) Only give your Name, Rank, Serial Number, and Date of Birth.

2) Don’t sign anything-your signature may be used for propaganda.

3) If you must give information, use realistic fiction.

4) Don’t accept any special favors from the enemy.

5) Don’t surrender yourself or others voluntarily.

The State Intelligence Wing and ASDU Army Psychological Operations employ their mild tactics to disorient, intimidate, and gauge the psychological strength of candidates.  These include scolding, verbal abuse, stress positions, sleep disruption, and slave labor.

Enemy Evasion

After the candidates effectively escape the prison, they are taught how to hide, distract, deceive, and ambush a pursuing enemy.  This usually involves camouflage skills, dumping of rubbish, and even setting up traps to incapacitate enemies.  Some odd practices include musical, “cocktail”, and snack food signals.

 

 

Basic Training

Army

All able-bodied citizens (men and women) from ages 16-30 must perform national service for four years as part of the nation’s survival needs.  Although they can be placed in any branch of service, the Army has priority.  Basic training lasts 9 weeks and takes place at Fort Wexler.  It goes as follows:

1- Integration

2- Close Corridor Defense

3- Rifle orientation

4- Firing Range

5- Communications

6- First Aid

7- Ordinance (Grenade) training

8- Combat maneuvers (Single, Squad)

9- NBC (Nuclear, Biological, Chemical) defense training

There are four different weapons certifications in the ASDU army, they are:

Rifleman 01- Basic rifles such as the M4, M16A2, AK47, M24, and others.

Rifleman 02- Small arms including handguns and submachine guns such as the MP5, G36, and MAC10.

Rifleman 03- Heavy arms such as the M240, M60, and L86.

Rifleman 04- Explosive ordinance such as grenades, launchers, and demolitions.

Navy

The navy has a very different structure from the army or air force, therefore undergoes different training.  It takes place at Paulson Naval Base and lasts 7 weeks.

It goes as follows:

1- Integration

2- Watchstanding

3- Seamanship

4- Firearms training (Beretta 92, Mossberg 500, and Springfield 30-06)

5- Base maintenance

6- Damage control

7- Final exercises (including the “Take Positions” exercise)

Basic Training ends with an exercise known as “Take Positions”, which is a culmination of all the skills taught to recruits over the previous seven weeks.  It is a basic operation aboard an actual floating craft that uses computer-generated programs to simulate naval warfare.

Air Force

The training here is similar to the army, except it situates itself with defense of installations instead of offensive operations.  It lasts 7 weeks and takes place at Carridine Air Base.

1- Integration

2- Close Corridor Defense

3- Firing Range

4- NBC (Nuclear, Biological, Chemical) defense training

5- First Aid

6-Communications

7-Combat maneuvers (Single, Squad)

Department 32

IMG_20150428_132317

Department 32 is the (Fictional) intelligence-gathering arm of the organization Autism Speaks.  It is a military-style group with certain regulations and procedures that mirror the KGB, the main security agency of the former USSR.  It’s main goal is to effectively destroy the neurodivergent peoples through espionage, sabotage, and violent revolutions.  It has three trades in which it operates, they are:

Intelligence

-Foreign: There are two main types of agents, “Legal” and “Illegal”.  Legal agents live within their target country, while illegal agents enter and leave their country multiple times.  Legal agents can either be citizens of their countries or resident aliens with proper identification (work visas, permanent resident status, etc.); illegal agents must sneak into countries with the end goal of leaving.

-Counterintelligence: For D32, counterintelligence is a matter of identifying moles and traitors within their organization.  This can be as simple as questioning others’ loyalty, or the extremes of spying on one’s fellow agents.

Asset Defense

-Installations: D32 troops are assigned to guard installations all over the globe, day or night.  This means stationing security, uniformed and non-uniformed, throughout an installation.

-Diplomats: Autism Speaks’ diplomats and other important personnel are always being followed by potential assassins.  This is why D32 security must remain vigilant at all times and at any cost.

Espionage

-Political: Propaganda, Lobbying, “Awareness” campaigns, etc.

-Strategic: The targeting of people, governments, and other organizations for partnerships.

-Weaponry: The basic concept of obtaining new weapons and munitions for the organization.

-Counter-Dissent: “Smear campaigns” against dissidents, abductions, possible assassinations of dissidents.

All these operations are centered around these fourteen goals for world domination:

1) Acceptance as the only autism organization there is.

2) Acceptance of the major world religions with curing autism.

3) Acceptance of co-existence with other organizations and countries as the only alternative to total war.

4) Access to all world patent and copyright offices.

5) Total identification of neurodivergents at all times.

6) Resistance to any opposition to A$.

7) Control of any and all media.

8) Present resistance to change as “normal, natural, and healthy”. (The goal is to create cliques that will isolate anyone who can’t keep them).

9) Use of psychiatry to control neurodivergents and political prisoners.

10) Encourage human pair bonding that only benefits neurotypicals.

11) Promote the A$ way of thinking to all schoolchildren of all ages.

12) Degradation of neurodivergent undertaking in “normal” activities, such as sports, social events, and even dating.

13) Own as many political parties as possible.

14) Disarm neurodivergents by any means necessary.

Department 32 has ten echelons, each specializing in an aspect of the organization.  They are:

Echelon 1- Espionage

Echelon 1 is the main force for infiltrating any nation, government, or organization with precision stealth.  This force of around 14,000 men and women are stationed around the globe with the intent to destroy the neurodivergent peoples wherever they are.

Echelon 2- Counterintelligence

Considered the deadliest unit within D32, the Counterintelligence Corps is tasked with duties such as:

-Removing surveillance equipment from installations

-Assassination (“Termination”) of enemy spies and/or moles

-Hunting and harassing random people for recording D32 installations/operations

-Planting moles in enemy intelligence forces to sabotage their espionage capabilities

They operate two different types of Counterintelligence:

Defensive: Defending Department 32 from infiltration.

Offensive: Identification of enemy efforts to infiltrate the Department; this can be stopped either through disinformation or precipitating treason in enemy agents.

Echelon 3- Surveillance

The echelon responsible for monitoring all communications, agents, and anyone considered a potential enemy of the organization.  Specializing in wiretapping, human intelligence, and drone warfare, Echelon 3 has made Department 32 a highly effective intelligence organization.

Echelon 4- Installation Security

This echelon is responsible for the guarding of most buildings, warehouses, and other areas owned by Autism Speaks.  They wear a grey button-up suit similar to the former Soviet army’s dress uniform with blue shoulder boards and felts on the collar.  The shoulder boards indicate rank while the collar felts indicate allegiance to Department 32 (hence the “D32” inscription on the collar).  The installation troops are usually put on guard duty for a year or two depending on the availability of new prospects to replace fallen personnel.  They usually carry an AK74, Uzi Submachine Gun, or an MP5, yet they prefer the AK74 above all.  They are issued a black ballistic helmet and tall “Doc Martens” boots along with the gray suit.

Echelon 5- Political/Information

The hub of all information, disinformation, and general propaganda machine for D32.  Responsible for the indoctrination of millions into destroying the autism community.  They operate in almost every country that has Autism Speaks chapters in it, even going as far as community organization.  This echelon targets the general public in the form of public speakers, psychologists, and “strategic” collaborators.

Echelon 6- Cryptography, International Communications

This echelon coordinates communications between agents, handlers, and commanders alike.  They are also responsible for creating false fronts on the internet such as social media pages, organizations, and even fictitious figures.

Echelon 7- Special Operations

The Department’s Special Operations Forces serve as the main counter-terror and special purpose forces.  They were formed in 2005 by Yuri Kaverin, a veteran of the former Soviet Union’s army intelligence (GRU), who personally trained the first 300 operators.  Their goal is to have a large force of well-trained assassins that can carry out the organization’s most dangerous missions.  The size of this force is estimated to be 13,000 men or more; this comes from the fact that 46 battalions exist with 300 in each battalion.  Few of these battalions have been identified, but the ones that have been identified have also been highly documented.

They are:

-45, 33, 39, and 46- These are believed to be responsible for the elimination of armed resistance to D32 or Autism Speaks in general.

-23, 27, 25, and 28- The purported naval units with extensive frogman training.

-7, 8, 3, and 12 (Group 338)- The most elite units of the D32 Special Operations Forces.  Extensively trained in counter-terror warfare such as hostage rescue, precision demolitions, and capture of High-Value Targets (HVT).

Training

The D32 Special Operations Forces undergo around 2 full years of training, starting with one of 12 Special Operations Training Platoons (SOTP).  The courses include:

-Firearms (Kalashnikovs, MP5s, Various Pistols, Various Scoped Rifles)

-Martial Arts (Jiu Jitsu, Muy Thai Boxing, and Tae Kwon Do)

-Gymnastics

-Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape (SERE)

-Mountain Climbing

-Land Navigation

-Pyrotechnics

Echelon 8- Guard Service

This is the bodyguard echelon of D32, with around 2,000 personnel keeping watch over the organization’s executives, families, and other VIPs.  They have around 20 units stationed across the globe ready to guard executives using Tec-9s, M&P40s, and concealable AK74s.

Echelon 9- Signals Intelligence

This is the echelon responsible for monitoring the internet and the communications of anyone who opposes Autism Speaks.  The echelon mainly spies on anyone who is related to people with ASD, even those who merely interact with them.

Echelon 10- Crusader Corps Security

The Crusader Corps is a security force similar to the U.N. Peacekeepers, and pools people from across the globe with a combined force of 700,000 uniformed individuals.  Their task is to ensure the loyalty of the troops while deployed to combat zones, basically interviewing officers and reporting any subversion in the ranks.

Opposition Forces (OPFORCE)

ehp.120-a436b.g001

It’s no secret or conspiracy theory that the ASD United infrastructure and power grid is always vulnerable to man-made disasters.  There are many enemies of ours who are working around the clock to disable our nation and its most vulnerable citizens, especially if they are willing to die in the process.  These groups include, but are not limited to:

-Inteligencia del Ejército Popular (People’s Army Intelligence, Guitarra Republic)

-Arrowgazian Army Intelligence

-Department 32

-Get Aware

-Able Force (Arrowgazian Special Operations)

-Normal Youth Authority

-“Lone Wolf” Terrorists

-Other enemies of the Neurodivergent peoples

Because of this, the ASDU Department of Defense has set up several Opposition Forces (OPFORCE), units of volunteers who play the role of enemy troops, insurgents, and others for the purpose of testing security at installations, power stations, and other areas.  These units and their regular military counterparts strictly use paintball and soft air weapons and munitions only, they are:

-Devil 1-3 : A group of men who specialize in mass shooting drills.  Handpicked from the volunteer group Dansen, an auxiliary medical group which supplies blood and plasma to combat zones.

-Gopher 2-8: A group of people who plant false paintball explosives on power stations, dams, shipyards, and other important buildings.  Members are supposedly recruited from the State Intelligence Wing or the Department of Justice.

-Cat 3-3: Trained to blend in with the ASDU populace as average workers (Clerks, Drivers, Mechanics).  Personnel are required to carry a concealed paintball pistol at all times during the exercise, which usually lasts around 21-45 days.

-Adder 2-5: A group of 1,000-3,000 men who serve as an enemy army with orders to invade a city or countryside.  Past disguises have included Chinese, North Korean, Iranian, and Australian soldiers.  Utilizes drones disguised as false tanks, helicopters, and other vehicles.

-Dipper 3-5:  A civil unrest unit dedicated to causing disturbances in the form of “Awareness Stunts”.  These include shouting and displaying obscenities, assaulting civilians, and promoting hate speech with the intent to cause anger and division.

Known Training Exercises

BUMBLE ALLEY 08- Members of Dipper 3-5 were deployed to multiple areas within the city of Post to carry out an awareness stunt involving the shouting of obscenities in public.  Places involved included the Post Kingdom Amusement Park, City Hall, Chabad Chesid, Post Lutheran Ministry, and even several P-23 convenience stores.

EASTERN CHUMP 10- A fictitious wooden city named “Little Chiraq” was constructed to simulate terrorist attacks in major cities.  Prominent areas such as the city hall, a museum, and a bus station were overrun by OPFORCEs with several first responder and counter-terror forces defusing the terror acts.

AIR DOME 12- Testing the Battery of Rockets Underground system, also known as the “Air Dome”.  Paintball artillery shells were deployed over the cities of Mancuso, Bellamy Bay, and Concord with the BRU firing magnesium countermeasures at the shells, destroying them instantly.  This exercise is performed with the help of Gopher 2-8 and is repeated every 3 months since it’s original test on 12 June 2012.

Meeting the Threat of Terror

The ASDU Department of Defense, National Police Department, and other agencies are on guard against terrorism every minute of the day.  To better combat terrorism wherever it may be, there have been units created and trained accordingly.  They are known as Counter-Terror units, or simply CT; their men are experts on dealing with this threat.

Each Counter-Terror unit usually trains in these skills:

-Sniping

-Defensive Driving

-VIP Defense

-Close-Quarter Battle

-Hostage Rescue

-Offensive Raids

Size:  2,700

Camouflage and Concealment

The following is a basic overview of camouflage techniques employed by the ASDU Armed Services.

There are five main elements of camouflage, they are:

-Shadow

-Shape

-Shine

-Silhouette

-Spacing

Shadow

In order to avoid casting your shadow out in sunlight, you’ll need to hide in dark places.  For example, you should never use established roads, paths, or any patch of land that you can easily be spotted in.  Always find a path that provides the greatest darkness to keep your cover.

Shape

Guns, helmets, and gear do have a very distinct shape; that can give you away unless you break it up.  To do this, you’ll need to employ materials at hand.  Here are some items that can be used for effective disguise of your shape:

-Cloth of the same color

-Local vegetation

-Boonie hats

-Scarves

Shine

Shine is the most common cause of camouflage failure.  This is because people are not aware of the things they carry that can shine, such as wristwatches, worn down paint, and even your face.  There are things you can use to camouflage your skin to reduce shine, they are:

-Camouflage Paint

-Charcoal

-Mud

-Burnt Cork

Cover any exposed part of your body (Face, Neck, Hands, etcetera), be sure not to leave anything exposed.  Cover your chin, cheekbones, and forehead with dark colors to ensure they don’t shine.  There are different patterns recommended for different environments, they are:

-Blotch: Temperate Deciduous Forests, Snow, and Deserts

-Slash: Coniferous Forests, Jungles, and Grasslands

Silhouette

Your silhouette can be seen from a long distance, even if you are not aware.  This can be avoided if you don’t walk around places where your body can be seen.  For example, do not walk atop a hill, mountain, or any high point in a given area.  Always walk below any hills you encounter; you must basically walk along the low points in an area.

Spacing

Most people believe that walking through an area in a close formation will ensure safety.  However, it will decrease your camouflage capabilities.  There must be a definite length between personnel to increase the camouflage capabilities.  For example, instead of walking 3-4 feet between each other, try 3-4 meters.  Instead of a straight line, utilize a diamond or other formation to increase chances of remaining undetected.

Concealment

Being well camouflaged is only effective if you have a good spot to hide in addition to it.  There are many areas that can be used for concealment, such as:

-Depressions in the ground

-Large trees

-Lying-Up Points (LUP)

-Large bushes

-Constructed Trenches

To conceal yourself better between concealment points, move slowly from area to area without making sudden movements.  For example, take medium steps while shifting your weight towards your forward foot.  Doing so will give you better traction and help you avoid traps or landmines.

What Our Troops Carry
