Military factbook of the Empire of Ikhan
« on: March 29, 2021, 10:23:33 PM »
Armed Forces of the Empire of Ikhan


Though the modern form of the Ikhani Armed Forces is only 138 years old, it's earliest roots can be traced as far back as the mid-11th century during the reign of the first Emperor, Khorai I, with the foundation of the Imperial Guard. The guard is known for their distinctive black uniforms, which feature, at least in their winter variant, a black cape, as well as their usage of the traditional Arashin sword, the Sikhos. Nonetheless, the modern form of the Imperial Armed Forces was founded in 1883, near the start of the Arashin Civil War. It's youngest branch, the Space Forces, was founded in 2011.

The Imperial Armed Forces is formed of Four major service branches and three services which are shared between these branches. These are the following:
  • the Imperial Army
  • the Imperial Navy
  • the Imperial Air Forces
  • the Imperial Space Forces
  • the Joint Medical Service
  • the Joint Support Service
  • the Cyber and Information Domain Service

The Imperial Marine Corps is considered a part of the Army which works in close cooperation with the Imperial Navy.
Budget (Actual Number): 129,181,329,336
Budget (% of GDP): 3.10%

Ishen-class Battleship
INS Khiras underway in the Kynean Sea, c. 1989


While it may be considered "outdated" by its critics and indeed being the oldest actively-serving class of ship in the Imperial Navy, the Ishen-class battleship has served on-and-off for the last 78 years, with its three vessels having gone under multiple refits to keep them up to date. Nonetheless, between 1991 and 2020, the class was held in reserves, and even with their recent reactivation, it is not expected that they will remain in service for longer than a decade. There are currently plans on the table for a replacement, though no work has actually begun to build them as of early 2021.
