The Anikatian Naval Force is the navy of Anikatia and part of the Anikatian National Defence Forces. It was established in 1951. It consists of five branches: surface forces, submarine forces, Navy aviation, coast rocket-artillery and marines. The navy operates in the all major oceans of the world.

The Headquarters of the Anikatian Naval Forces is situated at Kopolcha in the autonomous region of Anjutya.

History

Establishment of the Anikatian Navy and fate of the Belfrasian Navy with the decline of the Belfrasian empire, the administration of the Colonial Armed Forces was passed to the newly created Anikatian Naval Forces on August 14, 1951.

Anikatian People's Navy

The origins of the People's Navy began during the 1949 civil war and revolution, when the Anikatian government was overthrown during a socialist revolution. During the revolution Belfrasian controlled parts of Anikatia were captured along with their naval vessels, HMNB Christo was overrun and two Destroyer squadrons and a Submarine Squadron - carrying nuclear missiles - were captured. A Belfrasian investigation into the incident revealed that the commanding officer of the flotilla, Anikatian Admiral Rhee Dong-gun, was holding a ceremony at the time and removed all but a skeleton crew from the vessels. This finding was augmented by the fact that H.M.S Ioannes was able to sail from the naval base, as the ship remained at full crew capacity and saw the base being overrun before being boarded. Rhee Dong-gun actions instantly made him one of the hero's of the revolution and he received the highest honours of the DSRA.

In Belfras Rhee Dong-gun was given a court martial in absentia whilst other Anikatian nationals were cruelly subject to demoted or discharged from service. The Belfrasisn Admiralty charged with high treason in absentia to death and issued a Privateers Prize for his capture in the region of a modern 3.8 million Belfries. His actions provided the new government with vital information, technology and warships which allowed the DSRA to quickly develops it's local industries and vitally it's nuclear capabilities.

This allowed a great boost in spending and development of the naval forces. In some respects, including speed and reactor technology later Anikatian submarines were, and remain, some of the world's best. The roles tasked of the People's Navy were primarily to the interception of CDI convoys, but also targeted Belhavian and Ulthrannic aircraft carrier battle groups.

Modern Anikatian Navy

The dissolution of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Anikatia led to a severe decline in the Anikatian Navy. Defense expenditures were severely reduced. Many ships were scrapped or laid up as accommodation ships at naval bases, and the building program was essentially stopped. Since 2010 President Niklas Bykov has made it a priority to modernise and updated the armed forces with plans to build over 55 modern ships and 30 submarines by 2020. His successor President Sui Anyi has continued this modernisation, including the purchase of LHD ships from the Rodarion.

Current role

The Naval Forces of the Anikatian National Defence Forces is aimed at defence of sovereignty and state interests of Anikatia in the sea. It is required to neutralise enemy naval groups in its operational zone both alone and with other branches of the Anikatian National Defence Forces, and provide assistance from the sea to the Ground Forces during their operations. Main tasks of the Navy of the Anikatian National Defence Forces are the:

  • creation and maintenance of the combat forces on a level, sufficient to deter maritime aggression;
  • neutralization of enemy naval forces;
  • destruction of enemy transportation;
  • support of the landing of amphibious forces and fight against enemy amphibious forces;
  • maintenance of a beneficial operational regime in the operational zone;
  • defense of its bases, sea lines of communications;
  • protection of submarine space within the territorial sea;
  • protection of the merchant fleet, maritime oil and gas industry, and other state maritime activity;
  • assistance to the Army in their conduct of operations (military actions) along maritime axes;
  • participation in peacekeeping operations.

Major Ships and Vessels

According to Navy Commander Vice Admiral Annyeta Grorensky at the beginning of 2010 the fleet had 165 warships fully ready to perform complex tasks, and over 200 aircraft and 19 supply vessels in working order. As of March 14th 2014 a Type 270 'Ark Royal' class aircraft carrier that had been operating under a lease agreement from the Itailian government as part of a evaluative trial review and international cooperation has ended.
