HistoryThe Imperium Coalition was founded upon the requirement for a unified, single position of power to fend off the Nadirs. To do this, the forces of the ADN and PCP were mostly amalgimated into the new Coalition.
StructureThe Imperium Coalition is split into three branches, The head of each branch is personally accountable for their branch of the organisation. The three branches are:
The ICSC manages all top-level strategic resources and delegates to it's subsidiaries for action.
- ICSS - IC Security Service
- ICICO - IC Inteligence and Communications Office
- ICSF - IC Special Forces
- ICJFC - IC Joint Forces Command
- ICSSG - IC Special Support Group
The Astral Vanguard protect Errack through orbital bombardments, ferrying, supporting and providing insertion capabilities for the Defence Force and enforcing Imperium Coalition law upon the minor factions of the Degel system.
- ICODO - IC Orbital Defence Office
The Defence Force are the main bulk of the Imperium Coalition's military might. Being a unit designed to be adaptive to the battlefield and the missions it is assigned, the ICDF are second to none. The defense of critical locations, cities and the interests of the Imperium Coalition are the heart of this branch.
- ICSSAS - IC Special Shock Assault Service
- ICSRR - IC Special Reconisance Regiment
