The Darrian Navy is the interstellar force projection arm of the Darrian Confederation.

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.

Doctrine & Strategy (Operations)[edit]

The stellar trigger and relic fleets have been used for a long 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.

Note that the Darrian Navy operates a small integral Marine Force for use as Ship's Troops, but that the Darrian Guard provide the main ground assault force for the Confederacy.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

It 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.

There have been several battles between the Sword Worlds and the Darrians. In 788 was an example of the struggle for control of the Entropic Worlds.

Fleet Composition[edit]

Every shipyard within Darrian territory is encouraged to under take military contracts and produce and contribute warships for the defense of their territory.
