Forces: The Korps Commandotroepen or KCT numbers 20,000 and was formed
in 1949 in response to increasing demands for a unit that could operate
behind enemy lines. As part of the ever changing 21st century, their
main goal is to be able to perform special operations rather than hit
and run tactics. Based in Roosendaal (southwestern Netherlands), this
facility allows training for all members of the KCT.
Canton Rouge operates numerous bases, the one people know the most
about is the massive facility called LE CEITO. Located 50 miles north
of Marseille, LE CEITO is not only a training facility for all branches
of the military, but also an assembly area, headquarters, airport, etc.
While it can be considered a tempting target for any saboteur or
foreign military, LE CEITO is fiercely defended by at least two army groups at all time.
Reclamation Project: The Northern part of Canton Rouge has always been
at war with the North Sea. It can flood unpredictably, and land is at a
premium. Therefore, for around 800 years, Canton Rouge has built
polders and dykes to allow land to be reclaimed, and to attempt to make
the water flow more predictable.
Brussels Town Hall: Originally
constructed between 1404 to 1420, and a smaller wing added in 1444, the
town hall stands on the famous Grand Place square of Brussels.
Eiffel Tower: Constructed in 1889, the Eiffel Tower was originally constructed for the World Fair as a testament to modern architecture. In the following years since, a broadcast tower was put on top. Since then, the Eiffel Tower is the most visited landmark in all of Paris.
