Defense


Armatirion keeps a small (relative to the total population), efficient, professional military force, exclusively to defend the people, the Republic, and its principles. It is divided into the Army, the Navy, and the Air Force. Under no circumstances will Armatirion soldiers walk on the soil of another nation. All weapon systems utilised by the Armatirion armed forces are of a conventional nature.

The Coast Guard is a civil service, but flies the military naval ensign and cooperates with the Navy.

The C.E.S. (Civil Emergency Service) is a non-military organisation, but do on occasion cooperate with the military in certain circumstances. C.E.S. is ready to act on short notice in large scale emergency situations, including natural or ecological catastrophes like floods, droughts, erosion, famine, etc. The C.E.S. can be deployed to foreign nations if needed and requested by the recipient.

The flags of the armed forces are shown on the "Flags" page.

They are usually not worn on field uniforms, except by Chiefs of Staff and high ranking officers. C.E.S. personnel wears one collar device centrally on their hat when in the field.
Below are the most common branch insignia. There are even more, such as "Lawyer" and "Music".
Military Police don't have unique branch insignia (as they are not considered a separate branch), but wear an MP-band on their right upper arm.
