"For those that dare oppose the ICS, death awaits. We serve our Emperor to the end, even if the odds are against us." - Supreme General Calseon

The Imperial Armed Forces was founded on the 4 November, 1928, after several reforms in the nation at the orders of Emperor Leventias I.

It was soon realised that both the army and navy needed to modernise, so a lot of funding was added to thier budget. The plan was to train up 6 additional divisions and 1 armoured brigade. Two aircraft squadrons would later be formed in 1936. However it would take a decade to fully modernise and at that point WW2 had started. Not wanting to anger anyone the ICS stayed neutral but the Germanians attacked in 1940 and that forced them to fully mobilise their 500.000 man army.

After the war the ICS feared that they would be attacked again in their weakend state so additional funding was granted to the Imperial Armed Forces in 1948. This caused them to be on par with the Amerikans in terms of army size.

In the 1950s the newly formed nation of Infernus in Terra started bombing several army bases in the ICS, which resulted in an all out war between the two. The army now with their new aircraft quickly gained air superiority and with that they could deploy thier new weapon, the atom bomb. At 20 July, 3:18 AM, 1953, the bomb was dropped on the capital of Infernus in Terra and on 23 July the peace treaty was signed

In 1954 after the death of Emperor Leventias I the nation was split in two, the People's Republic of Continentis Septentrionalis (PRCS) to the east and the Empire of Continentis Septentrionalis (E/ICS) to the west. This resulted in a civil war with the ICS being outnumbered but having the better equipment.

In 1962 was the first ICS battleship built, The ICN Imperator and two years later would her sister ships be completed, the ICN Ultor and the ICN Imperatrix. These were soon deployed with a dozen destroyers and cruisers to blockade the PRCS. However the ICN Imperatrix would be sunk in 1971 after a torpedo struck its ammo storage.

In 1972 after the ICS Special Forces assasinated the PRCS premier which forced the nation to sign a peace treaty, the nation started demobilised a bit.

Up until 2002 the nation was mostly interested in fixing internal issues and rebuilding the nation after the war. The army was demobilised to 600,000 total personel and the navy decommisioned twenty cruisers and destroyer along with the ICN Ultor.

In 2002 the Imperial Armed Forces was rapidly mobilised as tensions in the south was rising, The emperor belived that they could avoid it but in the summer that year the first shoots were fired and soon the Imperial Armed Forces had fully mobilised its personel.

Doctrine [WIP]

  • Asymmetric Warfare

In a defensive war:


The standard training last for 1.4 years and consists of a lot of survival and teamwork exercises. In the last week they will be tested to see if they can work as a unit and survive in the wild.

Jäger training last for 2 years on top of standard training, there they will be trained to fight in a variety of climates and terrains.

The Space Marines train on earth in "zero gravity" chambers where they learn how to fight in hand-to-hand combat and in close quarters. Training lasts for 1.5 years.
