1st Virginia Fleet
The 1st Virginia Fleet, formerly known as Legio I Virginia, is currently the sole fleet of the Imperial Navy of the Empire of Austenasia, and before the re-establishment of the Navy was a legion in the Austenasian Army, formed to defend New Richmond and later expanding to include the forces defending Terentia and Shineshore.

|Commander||Lord Rear Admiral Alastair Cranston, Duke of New Virginia|
The 1st Virginia Fleet was founded on 3 October 2013 as Legio I Virginia to defend the Austenasian Crown Dependency of New Richmond, its name derived from West Virginia, the US state which surrounds New Richmond. A new cohort was added on 16 November 2013 to defend Terentia, and a naval based century was added on 29 April 2014 to defend Shineshore.
Upon the re-establishment of the Imperial Navy on 8 March 2015, Legio I Virginia was transitioned into a naval unit and renamed the 1st Virginia Fleet. Although the majority of its personnel are naval infantry, the Fleet does have several boats, and maintains a naval presence on Lake Ontario.
