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.
The Parachute Regiment consists of three regular army battalions, the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, and an Army Reserve battalion.
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.
On completion of basic training and entry into a battalion, recruits are posted for a Basic Parachute Course.
