The Japan Self-Defense Force is Nippon's Military force. Adopted from the JSDF on Earth (Which became integtated into the Unified Earth Government in 2075, which would eventually turn into the United Nations Space Command), the military force was originally formed as a security detail for the Japanese colonists who strove to explore the stars. As the colonists became an independant faction in their own right, the security group was modified into a full armed force.

Currently, the JSDF operates as the military forces of Nippon, operating in an entirely defensive unit that never attacks other organizations except on a few occasions. Despite their remaining out of the spotlight of other military forces, the JSDF remains one of the most powerful units in the Milky Way Galaxy, rivaling that of other main factions like the UCR and UNSC. They keep relations with a number of factions and offer their assistance to a multitude of others in times of need.

HistoryEdit

When Japan's Science Division was cleared for their semi-independent space exploration project in the early 22nd century, the Unified Earth Government let them have full responsibility for successes and failures, though still having some measure of control over the project. In order to protect the exploration unit from potentially disasterous or hostile encounters, Japan authorized the formation of a combat force which was fully oriented towards defending the craft against threats, from asteroid collisions or hostile alien encounters. The security force was composed primarily of humans who were trained in using computer-controlled point defense weaponry and drone fighters, though they were also trained in a measure of hand-to-hand combat and the use of small arms in the event of a boarding attack.

As a measure taking place due to the long amount of travel time to their destination and the short lifespan of humans, a great deal of focus was placed on artificial intelligence, which would operate as a skeleton crew of sorts while a fraction of frozen embryos would be engineered to manifest as humans trained through the same security protocols to keep the ship in one piece through its journey. Cycles were organized to ensure there were always humans alive on the ship to operate defenses and maintain the vessel.

Miraculously, the journey did not take as long as expected. Through circumstances that still confuse Japanese researchers, the ship was super accelerated along its journey, allowing it to reach its intended star system nearly across the galaxy in less than 300 years. This is particularly mind boggling because it takes light between 100-120 thousand years to travel from one end to the other. Aside from a few encounters where the craft needed to use its point-defense laser against small chunks of rock or ice, there were no hostile encounters with the craft whatsoever.

The security force was expanded as the colonists spread out from their initial star spot, developing permanent establishments for the surfaces of rocky worlds and aboard orbiting stations. When the colonists gained independence from the United Earth Government, the security forces were modified into the new JSDF, a fully-fledged armed force tasked with defending their worlds from any threat. They incorperated land, air and sea vehicles along with modifying spacecraft for military purposes.

OrganizationEdit

The JSDF operates under the command of Nippon's Security Board, part of the Ministry of Independant Japanese governed by the Diet and Prime Minister. The Prime Minister acts as the Commander-in-Chief, while the Emperor remains as a symbolic head of the military along with all things related to Nippon. The JSDF is divided into four branches:


Independent Japanese Ground Defense ForceEdit

JSDF Flag 1

The JSDF Army Flag

Known widely as the Army, occasionally referred to as the IJGDF, the Ground Defense Force serve as the land units of Nippon's Military. Primarily organized as permanent planetary defense units, they also operate with the Space unit since there is no separate Marine branch for the JSDF. The Ground Defense Force utilizes equipment similar to the armies of other factions, such as infantry and mechanized vehicles for conventional combat.

The Ground Defense Force is split into planetary divisions; each world's army is commanded by single Generals. The Generals take directive from the JSDF's General of the Army on Nippon, who represents the sole leadership of the Ground Defense Force and takes orders from the Prime Minister.

Compared to other factions, the Army is about as large as the UNSC's Army and Marines put together. That said, they also use similar technology such as ballistics and armor plating, though sometimes use other technologies such as shielding and high-powered laser weaponry. Their greatest weakness would be an overal lack of combat experience, being a pure Self Defense unit that does not often see combat.

Independant Japanese Air Defense ForceEdit

JSDF Flag 2

The JSDF Air Force Flag

Known more common as the Air Force and sometimes as the IJADF, the Air Defense Force operates similar to the Army, primarily as permanent planetary units that can be carried aboard Space vessels for outside deployment. The Air Forces are organized very much like the Ground Forces, having a General of the Air Force that sees command over individual Generals, who have command over an entire planet's Air units.

The Air Forces are larger than the Ground Forces; compared to other factions, the Air Forces remain a very strong unit, originally the JSDF's most powerful branch. Recently, more emphasis has gone to the Navy, though the Air Forces remain as strong as they once were. They are often the first deployed during a military engagement. The Air Forces are also well known for their being the primary branch that uses the JSDF's unique military unit, the Armored Core.

Independant Japanese Maritime Self-Defense ForceEdit

JSDF flag 4

JSDF Navy Flag (Wet)



Also known as the Wet Navy and the IJMSDF, the Maritime Defense Force operates on any Planet that has a water-like liquid body on it. They are the smallest branch in the JSDF, and despite remaining untested in any combat engagement so far, the Wet Navy still appears to be a considerable part of the Self Defense Force. Using more traditional designs akin to 20th and 21st century Navies on Earth, the Wet Navy is organized mostly as a long-range artillery support for the Ground Forces, though are also prepared to go against water-borne threats.

The Wet Navy is governed by individual Admirals for each planet, like the other branches of the JSDF. Overal Wet Navy command is governed by the Admiral of the Navy, though unlike the other branches is actually directed by the Aqua Defense Ministry, with the Admiral of the Navy functioning mostly as a representative only commanding in actual Waterborne combat situations. Organization of ranks within the Wet Navy is different from the Army and Air Force, having stronger similarities with the Space Navy for obvious reasons.

Independant Japanese Spacetime Self-Defense ForceEdit

JSDF Flag 3

JSDF Navy Flag (Space)

Also known as the Space Navy or IJSSDF, the Spacetime Self-Defense Force is the primary faction of the JSDF, being the Space unit. The Space Navy is the largest branch of the JSDF, and is the first responder to alien or interfactional threats. Despite using designs similar to Wet Navies, the Space Navy uses powerful technologies that keep it up to par with other faction militaries, ensuring the safety of their people against any enemy threat.

The Space Navy's origins lie in the Security unit developed for the Japan Science Division's first interstellar mission. The original techniques taught to security officers remain in ship-based defenders against boarders, albeit with modified techniques for mroe effectiveness and better equipment.

The Space Navy is organized much like the Wet Navy, though unlike the other branches, the Space Navy is commanded by Admirals who have bigger control over the branch's units. There are no individual planetary commanders for the Space Navy; instead, Fleets are governed by Fleet admirals who operate under entire Star systems. Planetary defenses can be commanded by varrying ranks depending on the size of the settlements being protected, with all Admiral ranks being options for planetary commanders. Additionally, all Ranks of the Space Navy are Officer ranks.

Ranks (Officer)

  • Fleet Admiral
  • Admiral
  • Vice Admiral
  • Rear Admiral
  • Captain
  • Commander
  • Lieutenant Commander
  • Lieutenant
  • Lieutenant Junior Grade
