History

The Baustralian Armed Forces were founded on 20 June 2017 by John I to defend him and his kingdom. The military played the most important role as the key force in the Baustralian Conquest. It was known as the Baustralian Conquest due to its attempts to take Edstmae, and other nearby kingdoms who declared war on Baustralia. Due to its strong nature, in comparison, the BAF was able to end threats by these kingdoms easily. After a few other battles, the Baustralian Conquest was categorized as being part of the Baustralian War.

The Baustralian Armed Forces have also engaged in peacekeeping with the League of Nations, with tours in Mandatory York, and the Fox Islands. They assisted with the Baustralian and Kapresh Civil War, as well as engaging in the Princetin conflict.

Current structure

The BAF is commanded by the sovereign and head of state, John I as Commander-in-Chief, who gives commands to the Chief of the Defence Staff, Admiral of the Fleet Sir Harrison Pickles, who will act upon, or broadcast these commands. The CDS also has the authority to give key commands. The King, however, remains the ultimate authority of the military, with officers and personnel swearing allegiance to himself.

The CDS is the professional head of the armed forces, the Defence Board, and is an appointment that can be held by an admiral of the fleet, or a field marshal. From August 2018 to January 2022, those who were appointed to the position of Chief of the Defence Staff, wore the rank of admiral, general, or air chief marshal.

Units

Uniforms

The Baustralian Armed Forces wear uniforms based on the Canadian Distinctive Environmental Uniforms, as well as the United Kingdom's uniforms, both current and former. The navy wears a double-breasted jacket, with gold sleeve lace, and gold insignia for NCMs, and in some uniforms, shoulder boards. They, unlike the other service branches, wear NCM insignia on the left sleeve only. The army doesn't wear sleeve lace but rather shoulder boards for officers, and standard gold insignia for NCMs.

Standard headdress includes forage caps for ceremonial dress, Bicorns, and bearskin caps are used for the naval and army full dress. In service dress, naval members may wear a forage cap, army members may wear a beret. These can be substituted for berets, or forage caps, should an event be multi-service.
