Founded by referendum in 2015, the nation of Icaria is a former British colony that just recently opted for independence from the United Kingdom. Following the successful separation, the Icarian government realized that they needed a standing military, with enough power to both defend their own interests, and project some power into the surrounding areas in conflict. To meet this goal, the Icarian government established the Icarian Armed Forces, consisting of an Army, Navy, and Army Air Force.
As a small nation, the Icarian military is limited in it’s size, but not in its scope or it’s operations. Seeing itself as a member of the globe, Icaria has contributed military assets to both its own defense, but also ongoing NATO and UN missions around the world. With modern equipment from multiple different nations, Icaria has the ability to close with, engage, and destroy enemy forces in all kinds of environments.
