The Iron Imperial Navy, more commonly referred to as the Iron Fleet, serves as the space warfare branch of the Iron Imperial Military.It was the first branch created following the inception of the Iron Empire. Initially comprised of former One Sith personnel and vessels, the crews were defectors that followed the Military Executor into exile. However, following their liberation, the Chiss Ascendancy, Republic of Mayferria, and other planetary governments have pledged their support to the Iron Imperial Navy and were welcome to join their ranks, whilst maintaining a certain degree of autonomy over their contributions.
The Iron Imperial Navy acts as the shield which protects the Iron Realm. Responsible for the patrol, border and orbital security, and expeditionary missions, they defend vital trade routes between planets as well as bolster planetary governments in times of crisis.
By his grace’s will, the Iron Empire has launched a program with the goal of enhancing intergalactic and interservice relationships by providing exchange opportunities for foreign naval and army personnel. The pilot program, called the Personnel Exchange Program, will integrate foreign exchange military officers into the ranks of the Iron Empire where they may learn the doctrine of the Iron Imperial Navy, as well as provide insight into the culture and ways of life within the Iron Empire.
The intent of the PEP is to promote a learning environment that fosters a sense of camaraderie and esprit-de-corps, as well as enhancing the communication and relationships with foreign allies. Officers from foreign factions may share their professional knowledge with members of the Iron Empire and can expect the same treatment and educational experience in return. Iron Imperial officers may also be attached to foreign militaries for similar purposes. In order to qualify for the Iron Empire’s Personnel Exchange Program, factions must have ratified a treaty in writing with the Iron Empire.
