The Kazulian Navy in the modern era was once considered the pride of the former armed forces, this was due to Kazulia being seafaring people since the settlement of the first Kazulians on the Western Coast. Over the past several centuries focus has been shifted from naval warfare to the land component of the armed forces. The Kazulian Navy does however remain among the leader in retention rates for men and women signing profession contracts and it remains one of the largest fleets in Dovani. Through the early 41st century the Royal Kazulian Navy underwent rapid modernisation by the Ministry of Defence, it would undergo massive modernisation several more times before coming to its resting state currently.
The Royal Kazulian Navy is headed by the Inspector-General of Royal Naval Forces (Kazulianisk: Inspektør-generalsekretær av Kongelig Marinen) who is head of Kazulian Naval High Command (Kazulianisk: Kazul Maritimt Kommandoen). The Inspector-General is typically granted the rank of Admiral (Kazulianisk: Admiral) but has, at several times of great conflict or strife, been granted the prestigious rank of Admiral of the Fleet (Kazulianisk: Admiral av Flåte). Kazulian Naval High Command is the day to day operator and planner of the Royal Naval Forces and models itself very closely after the Defence Council.
The Royal Kazulian Navy is headquartered at Joint Defence Command Headquarters in Skalm. It is commanded by an Inspector-General who commands Naval High Command.
Arctic Response Task Force Edit
The 1st Squadron "Arctic Response Task Force", is responsible for responding to threats to the Kazulian arctic shelf and usually has the capacity to operate in isolated circumstances. Nevertheless, the fleet is supported by the logical branches of both the Air-Force and the Army.
International Response Task Force Edit
International Response Task Force" is responsible for responding to threats in the international theater and usually has the capacity/capability to conduct sustained naval operations and electronic warfare capabilities and when on international deployment, the 4th Squadron "Submarine and Auxiliary Task Force" accompanies the fleet on deployment.
Regional Response Task Force Edit
The 3rd Squadron "Regional Response and Home Guard Task Force" is responsible for responding to threats within the regional shelf (that being Dovani, Eastern Keris and Eastern Seleya regions). Apart from Regional Response, the 3rd Squadron acts as a reinforcing unit to the Coast Guard. This Task Force has the ability to conduct prolonged naval operations as it operates within a very reasonable range of Kazulian ports (which could be used to resupply). It is rumoured that the Task Force, similar to the International Response Task Force, has the capability to wage electronic warfare.
Submarine and Auxiliary Task Force Edit
4th Squadron "Submarine and Auxiliary Task Force" is responsible for submarine operations as well as logistics. It is apart of naval doctrine, for at least one replenishment vessel to accompany any naval force operating outside of Kazulian waters.
Ships and submarines Edit
In total, there are around 73 commissioned ships in the Royal Naval Force, including; 2 amphibious assault ships, 12 frigates, 9 minesweepers, 7 support vessels, 6 corvettes, 20 submarines, 4 replenishment vessels and 13 auxiliary vessels. As the nation has little to no allies in the region, there is no option to jointly cooperate with any nation, such as the nation must maintain a heightened state of readiness.
The naval air arm of the Royal Naval Force is called the Maritimlufttjeneste. The Maritimlufttjeneste operates around 65 aircraft.
