The '''Fröhlichwaffe''' was the air force division of the armed forces of the [[Essexia|Commonwealth of Essexia]]. On the 17th June 2019, at the [[Danbury Conference]], it was decided that the Fröhlichwaffe would be divided into a Fleet Air Arm and Army Air Arm.
The Fröhlichwaffe was established on the 8th of July 2018, when [[Earl Jack
of Molrams]] was contracted by [[Emperor Terry of Essexia|Emperor Terry]] to construct an aerial vehicle for the protection of Essexia. The result was the R/C-01 'Pelican', which couldn't fly, and was a hand-built glider. The only example of an Essexian-built active service air vehicle is the H-1 Hummingbird, a utility helicopter developed on the 1st May 2019. The Fröhlichwaffe's name roughly translates to "Cheerful Weapons", or "Cheerful Air".
Squadrons were introduced on the 1st May 2019, when the H-1 Hummingbird was put into active service. It was given '1st Helicopter Squadron', leaving the F-1 and F-2 to be placed in '2nd Attack Squadron'.
