The Imperial and Royal Navy of Karnia-Ruthenia, also known since January 2022 as the Marine, is the Naval force of Karnia-Ruthenia. Its origins date back to the Royal Navy of Ruthenia, founded in 2014 and it is one of the branches of the Imperial and Royal Armed Forces of the Karno-Ruthenian Empire. Ships of the Karno-Ruthenian Navy are designated HIMS, for His Imperial Majesty's Ship.

On 07 January 2022, the Armed Forces were reformed and much of the Navy was modernized following the Occidian and Delveran military systems, that revoked many ranks within the navy and changed its name, while absorbing much of its organization and increasing its structure and assets.

The Karno-Ruthenian Navy saw action in the Lundener Civil War.

Backround[edit | edit source]

Founding[edit | edit source]

The Imperial and Royal Navy was founded on 26 November 2014 as the Royal Navy of Ruthenia, few days after the foundation of the Kingdom of Ruthenia. The navy was originally, and still have very much of its primary function, intended to be a defensive force to protect the access of Ruthenia to the Gurguéia River, a river which is the natural border of the Principality of St. Peter and St. Paul and crosses the Principality of St. Stephen, which also forms the Lake of Dead River (Lago do Rio Morto, in Portuguese).

Reorganization[edit | edit source]

Following the signature of the Karno-Ruthenian Compromise of 2016, the armed forces were readapted and entire hierarchy, nomenclature and training program were reconsidered. They use the Austro-Hungarian model to make patents and the army hierarchy. With the formation of a better organized General Staff of the Armed Forces, there was also a profound change in the attitude of the military, who have adopted a more interventionist attitude towards the military policies of the Empire. The best example of this is intervention in the Lundener Civil War.

Reforms[edit | edit source]

On 07 January 2022, the Armed Forces were reformed after the approval of the law presented by the Comittee for the Armed Forces during the III Legislature, and much of the Navy was modernized following the Occidian and Delveran military systems, that revoked many ranks within the navy and changed its name to Marine. On the following year, the General Order n. 23[1] implemented another change in the ranks of the Heer and the Marine.
