Leaving Nothing But a Trail of Blood and Crushed Skulls; Tainted With The Enemy's Blood and The Victims That Stood in Their Way. They March, They Chant, They Sing Blood River; From Their Home and Back.
Like many nations that reside in the region of Zentari, they have compulsory military service. The 14th Amendment of the Constitution in the Constitutional Empire of Zurkerx has made such illegal. A law that passed five years ago called "The Military Re-Organizing Act", combined most of the army branches within the Empire to focus on saving costs and redirecting them to one branch. Keeping the name the Red Skulls, it also consists of the Mountain Legion, Royal Guard, Royal SEALs, and Sniper Tactical Assassin. All of these groups, minus the Secret Commando Service and Samurai, will all be combined. However, there are many benefits to joining this Unison.
These benefits include the Empire helping a soldier with their education, being well trained in many tactics, in good health, getting a pension, and showing pride for the Empire. However, in order to qualify for such benefits, one must join the Unison first. From there, they go through eight years of military school, specialization school where they are taught Tuscuz (Forever Divining); a combination of Isshin-Ryu, Krav Maga, Karate, Judo, Systema, Kobudō, Brazilian Kick Boxing, and Kung Fu (Wushu). They are educated in special operations, military tactics, strategy, and vehicle/weapon handling. In addition, they are trained in everyday combat situations, close quarters combat, terrorist operations, and Mafia Operations. They are also thrown in the a multitude of climates for 4 weeks to survive on their own. This is done several times over the course of their training in different environments. They also do one on one fights, squad fights, and war re-enactment so these soldiers are ready to fight at a minute's notice.
Since there is only one soldier program, every soldier is elite minus training done by the Samurai and Secret Commando Service. Every soldier is kept in great health, vaccinated, and supported by the great technology within the Empire. They are trained as all purpose soldiers in terms of land, sea, and air. They take pride for what they fight for and what they stand for.
After all of the training is done, they are equipped then with their equipment. This consists of a combination of intelligence, armor, tactical gear, etc. The suit of armor they wear is call the Warrior Suit: a suit that consists of Dragon Skin Armor, Kevlar woven with diligent gel, Silicone gel, polyester, and Graphene, along with Carbon Fiber plating, covers the entire body of the soldier. This suit of armor has electronics that keeps the soldier cool/warm in extreme climate conditions. It has the ability to withstand multiple high caliber rounds at close range. Flexible, the soldier is able to move comfortably and carry a multitude of equipment. Resistant to an EMP, the Newton System redirects and disperses the electromagnetic waves.
The Balkan Headset, a helmet that is made of the same materials, has the ability to toggle Infrared, X-Ray, and Night Vision. It can zoom in and out, distinguish from friend (blue) or foe (red). Containing a BIO-CHEM Mask, it is designed to protect the soldier in a NBC Environment. With amplifiers on each ear, the soldier can hear a further distance away while also muting sounds they can select. A transmitter with a voice recorder and mike is found within and it can disguise one's voice and translate and speak any language. A small antenna, which can be expanded, can reach anyone even in the high attitudes of Zentari.
A backpack known as the Bear-Pac, is made of the same materials as well. In it contains a nutrient water pack that holds one gallon. A rubber tube is connected and goes through the Balkan Headset to provide water for the soldier. They carry a wide variety of food ranging from rolls, crackers, canned fruit/vegetables, energy bars, chocolate, etc. Essential equipment include a can opener, a lighter, matches, Swish Army Knife, flare gun, spy drones, tracking device, and a portable collapsing tablet.
The soldier wears Electron Gloves, gloves that are woven with Kevlar and cotton. In these gloves, contains a 500 volt shock that can be rechargeable. On the outer parts of the gloves, there is a built in brass knuckles and holographic scanner. The soldier wears Magneto Boots, which can detect any unexploded ordinance within a three foot radius that is two feet under. Made of strong rubbers, polyesters, Kevlar, and tin layer of steel, these shoes are tough enough to withstand debris.
In cases of sea invasion, they are equipped with amphibious gear and pressure suits and gliders for air invasions.
The Red Skulls have a variety weapons to choose from. While a majority carry the Warrior 5Z Assault Rifle (an all purpose weapon), some do opt for sub machine guns, shot guns, other rifles, and machine guns.

The Warrior 5Z is the current and all purpose assault rifle of the Constitutional Empire. It is also the fifth generation of Warrior assault rifles and the second to use the 6.5 Caliber (first was the Warrior 4R). Previous models used the 6.8 Remington. The Warrior 5Z was shown to be very reliable as it has been in all conditions; from hot to cold, sand to mud, water to ice, dirt to rocks; it has survived all. A slightly larger opening on the side of the gun allows the cartridges to leave reality more easily. Holes on the heat protector around the barrel allows for easier cooling as well as special gel, thinly put into the plastic, allows for further cooling, and even a slight warm up in colder climates. It is remarkably light, incorporating polymers that decreases the weapons weight. The 6.5 Grendel delivers excellent performances in all ranges, especially at long ranges. Magazines range from 10, 20, 30, 45, 50, and 100. Buffers makes the recoil low so a solider can fire on full auto without a problem.

Despite being the popular military weapon of choice (97%), it is also popular with private citizens and comes in a variety of other calibers.
