|Military history of Baustralia|
The Baustralian Armed Forces (BAF), or the Baustralian Forces (BF), are the armed forces of Baustralia. This institution comprises of sea and land elements referred to as His Royal Navy (HRN) and Baustralian Army (BA), respectively. Personnel may belong to the Reserve force or the Regular force.
The titular head of the BAF is the Commander-in-Chief, His Majesty Admiral of the Fleet John I. The professional head of the Baustralian Armed Forces is the Chief of the Defence Staff, Admiral of the Fleet Sir Harrison Pickles.
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.
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.
His Royal Navy's titular head is the Lord High Admiral, sovereign, and head of state, John I. The navy's professional head is the First Sea Lord and Chief of the Naval Staff, Admiral Sir Nick Sullivan. The Admiralty is the central command of the navy.
The Baustralian Army's titular head is the sovereign, and head of state, John I. The army's professional head is the Chief of the General Staff, General Sir Greg Watts. The Army Board is the central command of the army.
