Well I suppose I should give some details about Domini.

Domini thinks of itself as an Empire although in my fictitious world it is just a large Kingdom.
Domini was actually born about 12 years ago as a fantasy campaign setting in the fantasy campaign it is about the size of what was the Soviet Union. I shrank it considerably for this setting.

I racked my brain for years trying to come up with a 3rd world hell hole for AK-47 set in Africa but time and time again I would toss each idea. Then one night I was just going through some old files and saw all my Domini stuff and that was all I needed.

Domini is set in a fictitious world, there is no US, Russia or China which makes it easy to paint camo patterns and use what vehicles I want without worry. Now there will be countries that will take the place of those three plus Britian and France but that is still on the shelf.

Domini has a thriving economy, is ruled by an Emperor or Empress ( They like to think big in Domini) It is a hereditary rulership. The rest of the Gov't follows along a British model although in the end all power rests with the current ruler.   For the most part the current ruler allows the lower house alone unless there is a gross over step of some sort. The Empire still pays homage to noble titles as well.

The Dominian people are descended from Romans and the Dominian Defense Force  honors that heritage to this day. You will find no divisions in its army although on occasion there will be Army Groups the biggest unit is a Legion.

So a list of  the DDF unit structure and their equivalent American unit name

Legion - A little bigger then an American Brigade during the 80's. 
They are self sufficient having, Armor, Infantry, Artillery, Engineers and Supply and Support including aviation elements.

Century - Battalion 
Cohort - Company
Turmae - Platoon

Squads, Sections and Fire Teams are the same.

The DDF also have 2 Special Forces units.
The first is Whisper Squadron these are the guys that are called on when things need to be erased. Masters of recce and intel gathering and assaults on special targets, assassinations and battlefield sniper support.
 The second belongs to the Dominian Marine Corps they are a cross between the US Force Recon and Navy Seals but more on them later.

The next game I am preparing for will use Whisper Squadron troops on a cross border raid into the PRR to capture a couple of HVT's. I will be using the Civilian contractor figs for them but thats for another post though.
