The Socialist Union Defense Forces is the term for the military organisation of the Socialist Union of Nemkhavia and Pristinia. It is responsible for the defense of the Union from aggression. The SUDF consists of three forces: The SUDF Land Force, The SUDF Naval Force and the SUDF Air Force. It is the result of the amalgamation of the Nemkhav Defence Forces and the Defense Forces of Pristinia following the January 31 union.
The SUDF was formed on the 31st of January 2010, following the Union of Nemkhavia and Pristinia into one micronation. The military organisations of both nations, the Nemkhav Defence Forces and the Defense Forces of Pristinia were then combined into one force, with officers from both nations taking up positions in the new organisation. Former leader of the SFR Nemkhavia, Sir Mark Meehan was appointed as the new Force's Adjutant-in-Chief.
SUDF Central Command
The SUDF Central Command consists of the highest ranking officers in the SUDF. It is located in the SUDF building on People's Square 4, Nova City.
SUDF Land Force
The SUDF Land Force is currently the largest branch of the Defense Forces. It is charged with the defense of the Socialist Union on land. Among the duties of the Land Forces are the protection of the President, Mark Dresner and other Government officials. It is equipped to the best of the Government's ability and stands ready at all times. Former units of the Nemkhav Citizen Army and the Defense Forces of Pristinia make up a number of the current personnel in the Land Force.
The Land Force is currently equipped with several airsoft weapons and blunt weapons, such as baseball bats. It has a limited number of elementarily armoured vehicles, and is keeping a fund to purchase a properly armoured vehicle.
The SUDF Naval Force is the branch of the Defense Forces with responsibility for the Naval protection of the Union. It is not as well developed as the Land Force, but is undergoing a review to make it as effective as possible. Currently the Navy possesses a few motor-propelled rubber boats, several remote controlled boats with onboard mounted surveillance devices, and a very basic remote controlled model aircraft carrier.
SUDF Air Force
The SUDF Air Force is the branch of the Defense Foces with responsibility for the airborne defense of Union territories. A number of model airplanes (around 25) are at the disposal of the Air Force. It also possesses Blow Gun missiles and Firework missiles.
