Then, fearing guilt for some offense unknown,
and vows the Dryads I atone,
With all the sisters of the woods, and most
The God of Arms, who rules the Thracian coast,
they, or he, these omens would avert,
Release our fears, and better signs impart.
The Armed Services under the supreme command of Him Imperial
Majesty Emperor is divided into three arms, the Imperial Army, the Imperial Navy
and the Imperial Air Force.
According to the Peoples Constitution, adopted in 2000, Thrace does
not believe in the concept of micronational war. The constitution does not prohibit the active maintenance of a defence force.
As a result, the mission and objective of the Armed Services is to uphold the sovereignty, integrity, interests and
strategic rights of the nation by ensuring efficiency and combat readiness at all times to face any external or internal threats
to ensure the nation's development towards making a region of peace and prosperity.
The Imperial Army
The Army is the bulwark of Thrace's defence. It is organised into 2 divisions,
the 1st Army Division (HQ in the capital Sliven), the 2nd Army Division (HQ in Nova Zagora).
The Army is moving towards modernising it's equipment in order to be a more
effective conventional fighting force. Today, the modernisation process of the Army continues on its chartered course in preparation
for future challenges.
The Imperial Navy
The Navy patrols the extensive waterways and sea approaches to
Thrace. As a maritime nation, the security of the high seas is one of the highest defence priorities of Thrace. A study is
now being made to further define the role of the Navy and source for new equipment and ships to make the Navy
a truly modern force.
The Imperial Air Force
The Air Force is a fairly new branch of the Armed Services. The initial
purchase of 18 Scimitar Fighters in early 2001 formed the pioneer 1st Fighter Wing Briesk comprising 3 Fighter Squadrons.
