The Paras where founded on the 16th of March 2020, along with the Wellmoorean Army by Royal Decree. The first operation by the Parachute Regiment was The War Against the Seljuks.

Operational History

War Against the Seljuks

Upon the War Against the Seljuks beginning on the 4th of June 2021, King Luke of Wellmoore selected to deploy 2 Para.

2 Para is still deployed ensuring Wellmoore's defence.

The Wellmoorean Insurgency

Having been put on standby on the 30th of June 2021 (being put off standby a number of days later) the threat of deployment of elite regiments of the army helped shut down the Wellmoorean Insurgency.

Structure

The Parachute Regiment consists of three regular army battalions, the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, and an Army Reserve battalion.

Selection

Volunteers for the Parachute Regiment are invited to a 3-day insight course at the Parachute Regiment Assessment Course (PRAC). Over the three days, they have to pass a series of physical fitness assessments. All recruit training is then undertaken.

P Company puts recruits through a number of physical assessments designed to test fitness, stamina and teamwork skills. At the end of P Company, recruits take part in eight Pre-Parachute Selection Tests. Those who are successful are awarded their maroon beret, like in the British Army.

Airborne soldiers are expected to fight against superior numbers of the enemy equipped with artillery and tanks. So training is designed to encourage a spirit of self-discipline, self-reliance and aggressiveness. Emphasis was given to physical fitness, marksmanship and fieldcraft.

Currently, recruits for the Parachute Regiment must be aged 16 to 35 years and 6 months for the regular Army.

Parachute Training

On completion of basic training and entry into a battalion, recruits are posted for a Basic Parachute Course.
