The Shinra Republic Navy (SRN) is the primary space defense force of the Shinra Republic.

The Shinra Republic Navy has, for most of its existence, served to primarily defend the space of the Republic itself. However, since President Cid Shinra assumed office in 3385, the Navy has started to reorganize to better provide a force projection role in support of the Republic's intergalactic interests.

FleetsEdit

The Shinra Republic Navy is generally divided into eight numbered Fleets, each stationed within one of the eight sectors of the Republic.

  • First Fleet: Midgar Sector
  • Second Fleet: Vector Sector
  • Third Fleet: Figaro Sector
  • Fourth Fleet: Doma Sector
  • Fifth Fleet: Junon Sector
  • Sixth Fleet: Wutai Sector
  • Seventh Fleet: Thamasa Sector
  • Eighth Fleet: Gongaga Sector

RanksEdit

The Shinra Republic Navy has a rank structure consisting of enlisted, warrant officer and commissioned officer ranks.

The rank of Grand Admiral is a special rank, and officers are appointed directly by the President. Grand Admirals are answerable only to the President and may assume command over any Navy or Army units they require.

A Fleet Admiral would typically command one of the numbered Fleets, though presently the Seventh and Eighth Fleets are commanded by lesser ranks.

An Admiral typically commands one of the major departments of the Navy, for example: Spacecraft Command, Department of Naval Engineering, Department of Naval Training. Additionally, the Seventh and Eighth Fleets are presently commanded by an officer of this rank.

ShipsEdit

The SRN employs a variety of warships to defend the Republic's spacelanes.
