The Darrian Navy has a rich tradition and a long history. The Spinward Marches have been the site of many conflicts and serve as a crossroads between large empires. As such the Darrians has sought alliances to protect their interests. When diplomacy fails they have assembled a powerful fleet to keep ambitious Sword Worlds Confederation commanders from getting any ideas.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The fleet faces struggles to maintain cohesion with ships built across a variety of technology levels at a variety of shipyards. Admirals must adapt and use what they available to the best effect. Their tactics tend to be conservative and not overly aggressive. Security is seen as more important than glory.

Mission (Goals)[edit]

No information yet available.

Doctrine & Strategy (Operations)[edit]

The stellar trigger and relic fleets have been used for along time as a deterrent to foreign aggression. The Darrians rely on secrets from their past to intimidate foes and force them to second guess what the Darrians might do if pushed too far.
