A man of military bearing walks into the Senate hall
I am Titus Vedius, military advisor to Spurius Vitruvius. I am here today to present an updated view on our military composition. Please hold your questions until after my presentation.
The following legions are considered to be at Full Strength, that is they have a General, one First Cohort, at least 8 Cohorts, but up to 9, and at least 4 Auxilia, but up to 8...
The next 4 legions are considered understrengthed... as in they don't meet the above requirements, rest assured steps are being taken to bring them to full strength, but this takes time and is difficult to do in times of war.
All legions are currently either in the field or a fortification... the exception being Legio V Alavdae, they are currently being retrained at their home city.
As you can see we currently have 8 legions total, not counting any that might be in Africa. We have the ability to create 1 legion if we need to and that is Legio XIII Gemina, their recruiting home is Bononia.
If you have any questions about my presentation or about military affairs please ask away, I am here for your benefit.
