The Navy of the Servian Republic is actually little more than the Navy of the Reunited Kingdoms renamed. The legal name for the force, is the Navium Populusque Arda for it is responsible to and in service of the Peoples of Arda. It follows the lineage and history of the former organization though radically changed in the last few centuries in particular by the jump to spaceflight instead of planet bound operations. That shift which occurred beginning in the 5th Century of the Fourth Age or the 30th century of the Common Era on Earth coincided with the massive upheaval known as the Great Discord after which governance was reformed under the Servian Constitution and the Navy placed in service to the same. The Navy is formally in the charge of the Praetor for Naval Affairs, subordinate to all Consular Tribunes and potentially subordinate to the various Consuls depending upon a host of circumstances.

Organization Edit

The Navy of the Servian Republic consists of a headquarters staff comprising all relevant function heads including Administration, Intelligence, Plans & Policies, Logistics, Communication, and Medical. All serve under the direction of the Vice Chief of Naval Operations. The remaining departments report directly to the Chief of Naval Operations, the senior elected Military Tribune, and include the following elements:

Training and Doctrine Command Edit

Training and Doctrine Command is responsible for the recruitment, initial qualification, and continuing professional development of all levels of the Navy. This includes operating the Basic Training School, Officer's Candidate School, and all Rating specific training programs. Additionally the command runs and operates the the Naval Command and General Staff College and the Naval Warfare College. These two institutions allow for officers principally from the Navy but from other services as well to study an intensive 12 month program in the basics of naval warfare at the ship or squadron level and a capstone course in integrated naval strategy at the fleet level respectively. The head of both the training and doctrine departments are each elected Military Tribunes while the combined office is headed by a uniformed officer selected by the Praetor for Naval Affairs.

Operations and Logistics Command Edit

Operations and Logistics command is responsible for operating all elements of logistical support not directly tied to base facilities including supply distribution and allocation. This is also the policy making branch of the Navy responsible for promulgating for review and acceptance the articles governing daily operation of the naval force. The head of this division is the bi-annually elected Military Tribune for Naval Operations.

Information Support Division Edit

This is the technology support branch of the NPQA whose purposes is to leverage technological advances to better support warfighters and to defend networked assets from intrusion by hostile forces. Operationally this is the cyber-warfare division of the NPQA. Furthermore the ISD is also charge with defense and counter-defense of ESP and related fields, while there has been no confirmation that the blood of the firstborn resides in many members of this community they are often endowed with such gifts.

  3. 3.0 3.1 Command and Fleet Command Master Chiefs do not show a rating device but rather utilize the star in its stead
