The Kazulian Armed Forces (Kazulianisk: Forsvarskraft literally "Force of Defence") encompasses of the Kazulian Army, the Kazulian Navy,the Kazulian Air Force,the Kazulian Home Guard and the National Cyber Security Defence Force. The monarch commands the armed forces, with the title Commander-in-Chief. The monarch is the supreme authority for military matters and is the sole official who can order either declaration of war without approval from the Stortinget. The armed forces has, as some of its primary objectives, the defence of national territory, the protection of Kazulian interests abroad, and the maintenance of global stability.
The Kazulian Armed Forces have been deemed as one of the more effective fighting forces due to the large foreign influences on the military. Due to the lack of military tradition the need to train recruits fell to a number of foreign doctrines and tactics have been combined to offer a better defensive and offensive measure which allows more capability to the military. However it's noted by military specialist that the armed forces has begun to adopt some of these tactics and doctrines as their own, namely the Code Resolve Doctrine.
Organisation and Command Edit
The Kazulian Armed Forces is a civilian controlled military by which the executive military powers of the monarch are exercised by civilian representatives during times of war, but are exercised at the discretion of the monarch during times of war. The monarch appoints commanding officers of the various arms of the armed forces and has the discretion to promote military officers without Stortinget approval.
The chief body, which exercises the executive powers of the monarch during peacetime, is the Department of Defence. The Department of Defence is responsible for crafting and enforcing defence policy. It has headed by the Minister of Defence, who is primarily charged with handling the administrative needs of the armed forces and formulating policy. During times of peace, he/she exercises the executive powers of the monarch (as he/she is the defence representative to the Stortinget ). During peacetime, he/she must have Stortinget approval before making any defence related moves, especially when it comes to the executive powers bestowed onto said department during peacetime. During wartime the executive powers, once exercised by his department is returned to the monarch and the minister now acts as a military adviser to the monarch.
The Defence Command is the joint military operational authority for Kazulia. It consists of the various Inspector-Generals of the various arms of the armed forces and is in charge of operational planning, strategic planning and providing regular updates to the monarch and the Stortinget on the status of the military. It is headed by the Sjef for Forsvarsstaben (Chief of the Defence Staff) who is the highest ranking officer (both by rank and seniority) in any of the uniformed services.
