History of Kergikstan
Kergikstan was formed in 1995 after breaking away from Kazakhstan after disagreements over mining and oil drilling concessions.The Kergikstani economy grew steadily from the abundance of mineral and oil resources,a decent agricultural sector and local manufacturing of vehicles based on Western and Eastern designs for both military and civilian applications. The Kergikstani Army was involved in the Kergikstani Civil War which resulted in Loyalist Kergikstani forces defeating Pro-Kazakhstani insurgents and military defectors.
The history of the Kergikstani Military
Formed in 1996 as a voluntary defence force made out of civlilians and police officers.It was a militia fighting a barely trained but well-armed group of insurgents intending on dismantling the Kergikstani Government and returning it to Kazakhstani regime.The militia was weak and only had 3000 soldiers and most were poorly trained.Many years after the conflict It was now an capable fighting force when they entered both the Iraqi War and the Invasion of Afghanistan on the Coalition´s side but rapidly pulled out.The armed forces are going through a rapid modernization giving a contract to any company willing to discuss and show their products in order to modernize the army´s increasingly-obsolete soviet equipment.
