The Zealandian Defence Force (Swedish:Zeelandiens Försvarsmakten, Zealandian:Zålandieni Krigimakt) is the defence force of the The Commonwealth of Zealandia.
The Zealandian Defence Force (ZDF), is one of the most well developed militarises in New South Wales, excluding the Australian Defence Force.
The ZDF is comprised of the Air Defences (SE:Flygvapnet), Coast Guard (SE:Kustbevakningen) and Territorial Ground Force (SE:Markstridskrafter) these services all contribute to the Zealandian Border Guard.

Command Structure

The King of Zealandia (currently Haakon of Zealandia) is the commander in chief of the ZDF, under him are the service commanders, with the Coast Guard Service Commander taking seniority followed by the commander of the Air Force then Territorial Ground Force, all other ranks are interchangeable.
The ZDF is notable for not having any enlisted ranks.

  • Type 1:Is the main roundel used by the ZDF for identification on Aircraft, Land Vehicles and Vessels.
  • Type 2:Is used on Auxiliary Aircraft and Land Vehicles.
  • Type 2 (Low Visibility):Is used on aircraft where it would be inappropriate for the high visibility of the Type 1 roundel to be use.

  • Fin Flash:The Fin Flash is used as an additional identity marker on some aircraft and is located on the tail below or above the serial number.
