The main doctrine of the Aasha can best be described as the big hammer'. Form a fleet big enough for the job, smash the foe. The Aasha could, and was willing, to take the time to defeat a foe, often sitting back for up to 10 years to achieve victory.

Mission (Goals)[edit]

Trade is the life blood of the empire and nothing must be allowed to disrupt trade and the flow of goods. Secure borders AND internal security is essential for the continued success of the empire. Disruptive elements must be quickly destroyed lest they be allowed to fester and disrupt the harmony that is the vilani rule.

Doctrine & Strategy (Operations)[edit]

Fighters are used for massed long range missile fire. Ships are designed to be sufficient for the task at hand. Extravagant and unnecessary features are to be avoided. Utility and economy of force in tried and true designs is the goal. Reliability is essential. If a danger presents itself, study it first to learn what you can. Then mass the largest force available and strike only once absolute superiority and victory are assured. Patience is critical to success.

History & Background / Dossier[edit]

Backed by millenia of dominance over Charted Space, the Aasha knew that they can not be beaten. The problem was, someone forgot to tell the Terrans.

  • During the period of the Interstellar Wars, the First Imperium had become morbid bound, as too had the Navy. Mired in fixed tactics often created ten thousand years previously, and a cultural imperative not to change. The First Imperium was also beset by internal power struggles, revolts and "barbarians" along the spinward and rimward borders, noticeably the Terrans and Vargr.
  • This left to much of the early period of the Interstellar Wars to be fought by a small subset of the Aasha Ziru Sirka (Anglic: Aasha Ziru Sirka). Had the Ziru Sirka (Anglic: Ziru Sirka) marshaled enough resources, it could have easily defeated Terra, conservative tactics and slavish devotion to tradition combined with the limits of jump 2 technology limited their ability to cope with rapid change.

TO&E (Organization)[edit]

Naval Depots (Eshimaar (Anglic: Eshimaar)) of the Aasha Ziru Sirka[edit]

Naval Depot systems, or Eshimaar (Anglic: Eshimaar), have a long history within Charted Space and fully date back to the Ziru Sirka (Anglic: Ziru Sirka), possibly beyond. At any rate, the early Vilani used them as rallying points for their campaigns of intergalactic conquest, err...intergalactic business and advertising. During the Ziru Sirka (Anglic: Ziru Sirka), Eshimaar (Anglic: Eshimaar) were Aasha Ziru Sirka (Anglic: Aasha Ziru Sirka) marshalling areas and comprised at least 10% of Vilani Naval Bases.

Fleet Composition[edit]

Task forces are groups according to function and task. Available resources in that region of operation are expected to deal with their local areas of responsibilities. Each frontier segment is expected to address the problems that arise within their sphere of interest.
