His Royal Navy (HRN) is Baustralia's naval warfare force, responsible for the protection of the waters and for transporting planes and army corps through the water. The first formed service branch, HRN is known as the Senior Service. HRN has always been the strongest force, even though the least practical service by water percentage.
The HRN is the most prominent force by strength, and by usage in the Baustralian Conquest. The militia that formed the Baustralian Armed Forces – and subsequently, His Royal Navy – paraded as a naval militia by the order of the Crown. It was formed on 2 July 2017 by John I with Sir John Timpson named the Lord High Admiral. December that year, the Admiralty was dissolved in favour of one commander. Timpson was named Commander His Royal Navy.
In February 2018, the Admiralty was reformed by the Crown, and John was self-appointed as Lord High Admiral. Timpson was named Commander His Majesty's Fleet Baustralia, giving him similar duties as Commander His Royal Navy. He was also named First Sea Lord. In March 2018, an offer was given to Wangatangia to have the Baustralian Armed Forces parent the Wangatang Task Force, effectively forming the Wangatang Fleet division. It was later dissolved when the last Wangatang ship was decommissioned.
The HRN is commanded titularly by the Lord High Admiral – a position held by the Commander in Chief, John I – and professionally by the First Sea Lord and Chief of the Naval Staff – a position held by Admiral Sir John Timpson.

His Royal Navy has two fighting arms: His Royal Navy Fleet, containing members stationed with ships and His Royal Marines. It formerly had a Naval Amphibious Arm made up of members from the former His Royal Marines, which was dissolved.
The Naval Air Arm (NAA) was the aerial arm of His Royal Navy and deals with all aircraft in the navy. All NAirA members wear the same insignia, double wings, royally crowned, with the cypher in a laurel wreath, all in gold for NCOs and officers, red or blue for NCOs. This badge is worn above the rank insignia of NCOs and officers, and for NCMs, centred with the armpit and opening of the jacket, 1 inch from the shoulder or a quarter-inch above any medals.
Dissolved by Act of Parliament, His Royal Marines became the Naval Amphibious Arm (NAmpA), similar in structure to the Naval Air Arm already established. Non-commissioned members and non-commissioned officers wear trade badges, where the former wears a red or blue badge on the right arm centred between the shoulder and the point of the elbow, and the latter wears the badge in gold on the lapels. Commissioned officers wore an aircrew badge one inch above the rank insignia. It is was a trade for ratings who pass the Amphibious course. It was dissolved by an Act of Parliament for a lack of staff.
Ranks, rates, and insignia
His Royal Navy ranks, rates and insignia form part of the uniform of His Royal Navy. HRN uniforms are based on the uniforms of the Royal Navy, with the shoulder boards for flag officers based on the Royal Canadian Navy. The Admiral of the Fleet has similar insignia pinned onto the shoulder board as the Royal Navy.
For officers (see also His Royal Navy officer rank insignia):

|Admiral of the Fleet||Admiral||Vice admiral||Rear admiral||Commodore||Captain||Commander||Lieutenant commander||Lieutenant||Sub-lieutenant||Cadet|
For ratings, the system is based on the RN, adding ordinary rate, with RCN-style insignia. As the RN, ratings from leading rate to ordinary rate, the word 'rating' is replaced by their trade, or rate. Chief petty officers may also use Chief rate.
Unofficially, ship's cats accorded ranks may be known as, in the case of a cat holding the rank of Chief petty officer, chief feline.
