Aero Force

The largest of the four branches of the military, the Aero Force is the umbrella managing organization of the government-operated Tuvalt Air Force and the privately-owned and -operated Tuvalt Aerospace Organization (TAO). The CEO of the Tuvalt Aerospace Organization reports a profit of $970 Million, which primarily comes from the richest individuals in Tuvaltastan and other countries wishing to make trips up to space. The TAO currently operates two space stations, the TSS1 and TSS2. The TSS1 is due to become part of the Urth International Space Station. A total of 8,300 individuals are employed by the Aero Force.

The Navy, being the second largest branch of military, protects the southern and eastern coasts of Tuvaltastan from foreign threats, and is composed of 12 Destroyers, 120 Patrol Ships, 17 Corvettes, and 270 Automated Marine Vehicles (AMV). AMV's do most of the labor that was once done by people, and is remarkably more efficient. A total of 11,000 individuals are employed by the Navy.

Immediately after the Kostuv Civil war, there were hundreds of thousands of people in the Army. As a result, the military was urged to focus on minimizing active personnel in the Army. From this, the Tuvalt National Army's numbers have shrunk from around 800,000 to about 26,000.

Subterran Forces

A result of the Kostuvastan Civil War, the Subterran Army was a branch of the military that was primarily composed of out-dated equipment, particularly the wartime vehicles, now being over 15 years old. A total of 5,653 individuals were employed by the Subterran Force upon its dissolution.


A Subterrene being launched


The F-M070 is a subterrene specifically designed for making tunnels, rather than "swim" through the ground, as many other subterrenes do. It is typically used in connecting two plots of land separated by sea, one of the best examples being the T5 highway, which connects Kemeshovi to Neril'tskeli.


The newest model of subterrene, the D-M207 was designed in 2012, and the workers and builders on the project repeatedly refined its design to be the best subterrene at a relatively low cost. It has a state-of-the-art Ground-penetrating Radar (GPR) that can hit its target at an accuracy of 87%. The drilling missiles are also designed to the best efficiency as well, using a new drill design that removes ground at a much smoother pace, making the missiles move faster.


Using Ground-penetrating Radar to detect its enemies, the D-M173 Subterene can launch drilling missiles towards its target, causing substantial damage to tanks.

An older iteration of the D-M173, the D-M102 is capable of shooting missiles out of the ground, and can also detect objects that are above ground, but the D-M102 is significantly less accurate and precise, especially when compared to the more successful D-M173.

A prototype of the D-M Subterrenes, the P-T Subterrenes were tested by Kostuvastan during The Auroran Imperial War, but were never used in combat. These subterrenes would, however, be used during the Kostuvastan Civil War, and would pave the way for innovation regarding subterrenes.
