Praetorian Delihan Army


The Praetorian Delija Army has its origins in the years after the Indira - Rebellion 657.M41, when in 658 the High King of Praetoria took over direct rule of Praetorian Delija from the Imperial Indira Trade Company. Before 658, the precursor units of the Delija Army were units controlled by the Imperial Guard directly and were paid for by their profits. These operated alongside units of the Imperial Army, funded by the Departmento Munitiorum of the Segmentum Tempestus in Bakka.
Imperial Indira Trade Company were recruited primarily from Indira III, Indira IV, Attila meanwihle and Sikkim II in the Bengal Subsector, which consisted of Bengal Prime, Bihar Minor and Uttar Pradesh V, and high caste Soldiers recruited primarily from the rural plains of Oudh VII. Many of these troops took part in the Indria Mutiny, with the aim of reinstating the Mughal Emperor Bahadur Shahram Dar at Delija Prime, partly as a result of insensitive treatment by their Praetorian und Imperial officers.
After the Mutiny, recruitment switched to what the Praetorian and Mordian Command Officers called the "martial races," particularly
Rajputis, Sikhas, Shurkas, Pashtans, Jatush and Balochish.

Bengal Army, Madrush Army and Sikkim Army.

The "Delija Army" is the name for the Delijan Armed forces of Delija Sector, and the meaning has changed over time:

658.M41 - 694.M41
The Delija Army was an informal collective term for the armies of the three presidencies systems; the

695.M41 - 702.M41
The Delija Army had a formal existence and was the "army of the government of Delija Sector", including Praetorian, Imperial and Delijan (sepoy) units.
Lord Horation Kichanar was High Sirdar, between 702 and 729. He instituted large-scale reforms, the greatest of which was the merger of the three armies of the Presidencies into a unified force. He formed higher level formations, eight army corps, and brigaded Delijan and Praetorian units. Following Kitchanar's reforms:
703.M41 - 747.M41
Praetorian Guard units (and other Imperal Guard Regiments) posted to Delija for a tour of duty, and which would then be posted to other parts of the Praetorian Empire or other Imperial Departments.

* The Delijan Army was "the force recruited locally and permanently based in India, together with its expatriate Praetorian officers."

* The Praetorian Army in Delija consisted of

* The
Army of Delija consisted of both the Delijan Army and the Praetorian Army in Delija. The Army was build in three Field Force Units, called the Angelus Field Force, the Indiron Rimward Expedtion Force and the Kandahar Field Force.

The officer commanding the Army of Delija was the High Sirdar and Governor General of Delija. His command was known as Delija Command and his staff were based at GHQ Delija Prime.
Delijan Army postings were less prestigious than Praetorian Guards positions, but the pay was significantly greater so that officers could live on their pay instead of having to have a private income. Praetorian officers in the Delijan Army were expected to learn to speak the Delija Gothic Dialect of their men, who tended to be recruited from primarily Hundu-Gothic speaking areas.
Prominent Praetorian Delijan army officers included:
Delijanisation by which Delijans were promoted into higher officer ranks. The cadets were sent to study at the Royal Military Academy and Angelus Major and Sandringhurst and were given full commissions as High King's Commissioned Delijan Officers. The HKCDOs were equivalent in every way to Praetorian commissioned officers and had full authority over all troops (unlike VCOs). Some HKCDO`s were attached to Praetorian ore other Imperial Army units for a part of their careers.

Commissioned Officers
Commissioned officers, Imperial, Praetorian and Delijan, held identical ranks to commissioned officers of the Praetorian Army.
Viceroy's Commissioned Officers
Viceroy's Commissioned Officers were Delijans holding officer ranks. They were treated in almost all respects as commissioned officers, but only had authority over Delijan troops and were subordinate to all Praetorian High King's Commissioned Officers, High King's Commissioned Delijan Officers and even more the Officers of Departmento and Imperial Guard.

The Praetorian Delijan Army had a strength of about 50 million men on the eve of Firste Great Crusade 714.M41.
The main role of the Delijan Army was seen as being defence of the
During the days of Imperial and Praetorian rule, the Delijan Army proved a very crucial adjunct to Imperial forces not only in Delija Sector but also in other places, particularly during the First and Second Wave of Sabbatworld Crusade.
Recruitment was entirely voluntary; about 10.3 million men served in the First Wave Combat, many on the Spinward Front and 12.5 million in the Second. Initially the soldiers and NCOs were Delijan, with Praetorian ore Mordian officers but later Delijan officers were promoted as part of Delijanisation (see High King's Commissioned Delijan Officer). Slaydo told them all “The Heros of the Lion from Praetorias Fath”.
The Delijan Army established the Command and Staff College in 707 at Quetta XII, in present-day Schola Progenium Bruttiam to provide the army with staff officers who had knowledge of local Delijan conditions. The college still continues to train Imperial Guard officers. Whereas until 732 most Praetorian Delijan Army officers, both Praetorian and Delijan, were trained at Royal Military Academys of Angelus Major and Sandringhurst, after that date the Delijan officers increasingly received their training at the Royal Delijan Military Academy on Indira IV which was established in 732.
