NSL - Neu Swabian League

The Neu Swabian League Space Fleet

(NSL Kriegsraumflotte)

(From the GZG 2004 paper catalog)

When the NSL was formed in 2101 following the split of the old European Union, the fledgling European Space Force was also divided - the NSL and FSE each appropriated what they could of the ESF ships and assets to create the beginnings of their own space navies. The Kriegsraumflotte was officially established in 2102 with a handful of primitive ex-ESF ships, comprising a very few newly-built FTL-capable vessels and a number of Insystemers. The first purely NSL-designed warship was the FTL cruiser KRS Wien, launched in 2109, the first of a class that eventually numbered 23 vessels and served well until the late 2130s. Since then the KRF has rapidly expanded to become one of the four major Space Navies: it cannot yet rival the NAC or ESU fleets in terms of sheer tonnage, but it is still growing despite the attrition of the war years. The spirit and traditions of the KRF can be traced back past the German forces of the early and mid Twentieth Century, to the Austro-Hungarian Navy of the Nineteenth Century and earlier. 

The organization of the KRF is similar to most other navies, in that it is structured as a number of Fleets with different areas of operation; First Fleet is the home defense force based in the Core and Inner worlds, Second Fleet the Outer Colony defense units and Third Fleet is considered the 'Strike Fleet' - based at Neu Salzburg, it is kept as a ready reserve for major operations. Logistic support units are integral parts of each Fleet. Marine ground forces are provided from specially-trained units of the regular army seconded to Naval service as required. 

Like the NAC RN, most of the KRF personnel are volunteers who sign up for either at five- year term or a full career. Conscription has been used at times during the Solar Wars, but it has generally been found inefficient- good starship crew members require lengthy training and considerable dedication. Conditions on board KRF warships are not luxurious, but neither are they unpleasant; the ships are utilitarian in design, but reasonable attention has been paid to the effects of living conditions on crew morale. Many KRF officers, both senior and junior, come from the revived aristocratic families of the NSL member states which have a heritage of proud military service stretching back through many generations.

Ship Design Doctrine: 

The ships of the KRF are generally heavily armed with beam weapons, with other systems such as missiles or pulse torpedoes only being mounted on a very few classes. NSL doctrine is for powerful ships in offence and defense, with mobility a lower priority - thrust levels tend to be low, and most large classes have only thrust-2 drives. NSL military hulls are boxy and solid, and hull armour is used extensively, but energy screens are not carried. Active defenses are seen as a priority, and most ships carry extensive point-defense installations. Fighter operations are based around small numbers carried on the large general combat ships rather than specific carrier designs.
