They are in every town really its just that noone hears about it. I guess its because norway is so small that even having a local militia is impossible to believe for some. Our militia is armed well, sometimes i believe better then our regular army. (you know half the norwegian navy is so high tech that we cant afford to use it and our air force is outdated. Our tanks are very limited in numbers, just getting into a tank corps is almost impossible. Our infantry is however shared between para's marines and infantry. Look at that one of our main GROUPS are drop people. So our army should be able to take any zombie threat without much of a problem. However another nation attacking and we would end up dying a lot faster then against zombies. We got the mobility not the funds
The militia sounds awesome!
And nice one about the battlebow. Is it historical or modern?
Modern bows can have some pretty cool little gadgets
As for the funds problem, we in the UK have the same problem, its caused quite a few scandals, we HAVE all the equipment our troops who have been deployed need, but we dont have the funds to ship them... The big massive anti-explosive vehicle which is basically indestructible (used for minefields/IED's) we have a few of them waiting in the UK just waiting for the greenlight to be shipped... its quite shocking really...
Another shocking thing was when my cousin was sent somewhere in africa, in charge of a few men, to guard some diplomat. They were rendered useless as they couldnt bring their equipment into the country. They were there, but had no means to protect him anyway...
