Royal Norsan Navy

Coat of Arms of the Navy


Flag of the Navy


For centuries, the Royal Norsan Navy has been the heart of the Norsan Armed Forces, protecting the nation with both state-of-the-art vessels and state-of-the-art personnel. The Navy deploys a wide range of equipment, from powerful anti-air destroyers to silent ballistic missile submarines, the Navy is a formidable fighting force.


The Navy is seen to, arguably, be the most important of Norstham's armed services. This is a view that tends to be taken by the Government, and the Navy and Air Force both receive more funding than the Army, primarily due to the fact Norstham is an island nation. The Navy is not just a force at sea, large fleets of aircraft fly from the flagship carrier KNS Polaris, projecting power around the world, and the Marines form the Navy's land forces. A formidable fleet is maintained by the Navy, including a large aircraft carrier, and multiple smaller vessels, including ballistic missile and attack submarines, as well as other vessels such as advance air defence destroyers and guided missile frigates. In addition to these vessels, other equipment such as a variety of missiles and radar systems. The Navy also pioneers new technologies, and many new technologies are developed through navy projects.


Fleet

The Navy maintains a large fleet of both surface vessels and submarines, and the Norsan fleet is one of the most formidable in The Western Isles. The current flagship of the fleet is the aircraft carrier KNS Polaris. Norsan ships carry the prefix KNS, which stands for Kunglig Norsan Ship

Fleet Air Arm

The fleet air arm is the naval aviation wing of the Navy, and is responsible for the management and operation of aircraft under the command of the Navy. Aircraft are a vital component of almost every aspect of the Navy's operations, performing tasks such as land attack, air combat and anti-submarine roles. Naval aircraft are divided into two groups, those primarily based on ships and those primarily based on land. The majority of ships in the Navy have a flight deck and facilities for rotary wing aircraft, and several, including the KNS Polaris and the Tranquillity class frigates can deploy fixed wing aircraft.
