The Military Security Service (Dundorfian: Militärische Sicherheitsdienst) formerly the 13th Chief Directorate of Military Intelligence and Counterintelligence (Dorvish: 13. Hauptverwaltung des militärischen Geheimdienstes und Spionageabwehr) also formerly known as the Military Intelligence Service (MIS) (Dorvish: Militärischen Nachrichtendienst) (MND) is the primary military intelligence agency for Dorvik and the Armed Forces of Dorvik.
The Military Security Service is responsible for the overall administration of the departmental intelligence services within the Landwehr, Navy and Air Force. The MSS is responsible for giving information to government officials, operational planners and common war fighters in order to provide them with the best possible advantage against the enemy. The General-Director of the Military Security Service is appointed by the Minister of Defense and approved by the President of the Dorvish Republic.
The General-Director of the Military Security Service is a ranking general or admiral from the Armed Forces of Dorvik who serves as the principal advisor to the President and Minister of War about military intelligence related information. The General-Director is appointed by the Minister of Defense and approved by order of the President. The General-Director also makes annual reports to the Dorvish State Council's Committee on Intelligence, Security and Public Order.
The Military Security Service is the primary military intelligence organization of Dorvik. Unlike the Foreign Intelligence Service which is responsible for non-military related foreign intelligence, the Military Intelligence Service is focused on providing information about foreign militarys to the President of the Dorvish Republic, the State Chancellor of the Dorvish Republic, the Minister of War, Inspector-General of the Supreme General Staff and other senior military and civilian policy makers.
The MIS was created on March 11th, 3287 while the Dorvish Foreign Intelligence Service was undergoing a massive reformation at the hands of it's own leadership. The MIS took over much of the military intelligence from the FIS after the FIS failed in it's attempts to keep up-to-date information regarding the military status of nations around the world. This shift allowed the intelligence section of the armed forces to overtake the FIS and the MIS was created. At it creation the focus of the MIS was to collect information regarding it's neighbors on the Artanian continent, eventually the mission expanded to the entire Artanian continent.
When the Dorvish Federation was formed the mission expanded alongside that of the Federal Security Service led by Nika Romanov who worked closely with then Director of the MIS Matthias Kempf. Kempf and Romanov worked extensively on their Kafuristan project, it was during this time that the MIS established the Directorate of Assistance Services, the primary exporter of military assistance, development and cooperation for foreign states with Dorvik. Kempf lobbied for greater funding of the MIS and this trend his continued seeing as the FIS has moved more and more away from supporting foreign militarys and more clandestine efforts.
Underneath the Dorvish Republic and Minister of Defense, later Minster of War Bonifaz Voll the Military Intelligence Service formed into the Military Security Service and was firmly planted underneath the auspices of the Ministry of War. The Military Security Service was changed to be headed by a General-Director who doubles as a State Secretary of War for the Military Security Service. Underneath the reform the MSS is tasked with providing military intelligence to the Dorvish government and Armed Forces of Dorvik, it is also tasked with conducting and planning operations with the Dorvish Special Forces.
The MSS has been active throughout the world in operations that are tasked with "...advancing Dorvish interests...". In recent years the MSS has created the Großdundorf Regiment ("Greater Dundorf Regiment") which is charged with carrying out direct operations of the Military Security Service alongside the Dorvish Special Forces but remain outside their command structure. The Großdundorf Regiment is organized on paper as a panzer grenadier regiment (mechanized) however they are traditionally outfitted with whatever specific mission they are going on, in the event of war they can be fully mobilized as a panzer grenadier regiment.
