About This File

This mod provides quite a complete panel of the awards available to the Ukrainian military by our 2010s. It is mostly intended to complement other works (campaigns) that YOU modder would like to design, using PFunk’s Black Sea 2.0a map covering Crimea and the Sea of Azov, and the tragically rich events of Year 2014 there (and plausible prospects of even more tragic moments to come). Such hypothetical campaigns could explore various kinds of conflicts involving NATO forces, from a frantic all-out war, to local operations to recover Crimea or clear the Southern Donbass area, to a latent conflict limited to aerial skirmishes and incursions over some NATO-enforced no-fly zone, etc...

 

The complete list of your available decorations is displayed here :

 

Ukrainian Air Force

 

Gold Star of Hero of Ukraine (2 possible awards)


Order For Merit (3 Classes, each one awarded only once in turn)


Order of Bogdan Khmelnytskiy (3 Classes, each one awarded only once in turn)


Order For Courage (3 Classes, each one awarded only once in turn)


Order of Daniel of Galicia


Medal for Military Service to Ukraine (multiple awards possible)


Defender of the Homeland Medal


Honor and Valor Distinction


Appreciation For Valiant Military Service to the Fatherland


Appreciation For Achievements in Military Service


(2 Classes, each one awarded only once in turn)


Pilot's qualification wings (4 Classes, each one awarded only once in turn)

 

Beware, none of these awards did exist in 1994 when Ukraine was still a newborn nation, so this awards panel should not be suitable as is for your installation of the SF2NA: Black Sea Crisis campaign. Fortunately, I have also enclosed alternative citations with postponed dates of awarding, that makes this panel acceptable for campaigns set in 1994/1996.

 

October 2015 Update : adds air & ground counters, new medals (Order of Courage 1st & 2nd Classes, Distinction of the Ministry of Defense, pilot's qualification badges...), and completely reshuffles criteria for awarding for better realism and accordance with the Russian medals pack to come soon – with citations rewritten accordingly.

Thanks, a very nice Pack!

Unfortunately there has not been without "branchy cranberries")) For example, the official name of the Ukrainian state it's just Ukraine, without any additional words. Accordingly, the head of state called the President of Ukraine (PRESYDENT UKRAINY), not "the Republic"! The State Awards are given by the Decree of the President of Ukraine (rather than "Administration"). Next. Order For Merit is a civilian award. And starley (senior lieutenant), he was awarded the Order of Bohdan Khmelnytskiy 1st Class - it's all a fake! ))

Sorry for the unintentional fish bones left. As the Presidential Administration ("Bankova", name discontinued 2005-2010) is intended to manage and relieve the President of many administrative activities, I thought it an adequate link for transmitting the President's will to lower levels. My mistake, it seems. The Order of Merit can be awarded to members of the armed forces for outstanding military achievements: then the ribbon displays crossed swords, which is the case here. Bogdan's neckband is explicitely said to be an exceptional award: here it can be awarded only for a fourth outstanding feat, after the 3rd and 2nd classes of the Order of course but also a first gold star of Hero have already been awarded, which does not concern 1st Lt Anybody. I put it in the list thinking about the Red baron exceptionally awarded an order usually not conferred below field rank officers, due to his international notoriety and propaganda status as a living standard for his fighting nation.

[ Personally, for modern jet air force, I rather use different lists of ranks beginning with 1st Lt or Cpt depending on the nation, reflecting seasoned pilots; so if awarded after one or two promotions you would have a Cpt or Maj, which I agree, sounds more realistic. ]

Yes, you are right. The Order for Merit - theoretically - could be handed over to military officials (like some other "civilian" awards). Anyway, in a year of war such awards was not... Yes, on the blocks of the Order for Merit 2nd and 3rd Class can be accomodated swords (but 1st Class and Star of the Order remain without swords ))

Modern award system of Ukraine is not suited for war. In the Statutes there is no detailed specification of a merit, which is awarded the appropriate order or medal. Blurring the relevant paragraphs of the Statutes is causing mishaps and even abuse...

But, in principle, if you mean an alternative history, much of what I'm nitpiking, can be taken as an assumption! ))

By the way, if it is of any interest to you.

The "tradition" to attach the crossed swords to the ribbon of the Order of Merit comes from 1992. At the dawn of Independence "Honorary Insignia of the President of Ukraine" for several years was the only Ukrainian decoration. The Statute of the insignia provided an opportunity to reward the soldiers too. In this cases, was added to medal ribbon a small swords - although the Statute and the Discription is not provided! After appearing in early 1995 a special awards For Courage and the Order of Bohdan Khmelnytsky, warriors practically ceased to award "Honorary Insignia". Later, in 1996, this is quite a beautiful sign was renamed to the 3rd Class of the new Order of Merit. Only the manufacturing quality has become much worse...
