The Tyrian Lordships are a small independent military force.

Goals[edit]

They seek to provide security for their planet.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

A history of conflict against Aslan forces. Tyr has a long and bloody history of predation against other worlds, and is one of the dominant powers among the Main. Tyrian raiders are greatly feared by neighboring worlds.

A few centuries ago expansionists took hold of Tyr, beginning the Tyrian Lordships period. This rapacious kingdom began invading nearby worlds and at the height of their power, Tyr held the entirety of the Sindalian Main, as well as Dpres, Connaught and Solaria. The Tyrian Lordships ended in a bloodbath when exiles from Acis brought in Aslan mercenaries from the Glorious Empire. Ensuing wars continue to this day.

Government & Politics (Leadership)[edit]

Baron Admiral Nagoomo was the first lord to commission the construction of warships.

Technology & Trade (Economy)[edit]

Their military equipment is TL–11.

Military & Intelligence (Force Projection)[edit]

The citizens of Tyr (TR 1518) (world) took matters into their own hands and constructed a fleet of warships. These were the best designs their TL–11 shipyards could produce. They used these vessels to raid and eventually subjugate the surrounding systems. The arrival of the Aslan and their fleets wrested control from their grasp. Squadrons of these vessels would be accompanied by numerous low displacement captured civilian designs. These Free Traders, freighters, merchants and liners were impressed into service as troop transport, logistical support craft, improvised carriers, and refuellers. Tyrian ships of this era tended to carry as many marines as would fit. The light cruiser carries a small marine battalion. A squadron of light fighters is used for CAS and scouting within systems. These Lotus Blossoms tended to be useless against capital ships. The company of attack speeders specialize in quick planetary surface raids and provide cover for marine extraction. Each marine unit had a single elite squad of jump troopers who rely on the assault landers for dust off and recovery. They served as pathfinders and forward observers prior to planetary assaults. Defensively they used Tyrian Army Legions to protect their worlds.
