AFOH stands for Advanced Fleet Of Hybrids. Formed on the 27th of May 2013 by HMSHOMEMADE1011, Shinato70 and Thognong, we are one of the oldest and continuously active navies in the BSCN Wiki. We consider oursleves primarily as a builder's navy and a venue where people can share their creations and expertise as well as exchange tips and ideas, but we do participate occassionally in the wiki's varied and interesting role-plays. As a rule, we only use vanilla (BSC or WSC), we don't allow hacks (but of course with some exceptions -- see below) and a member should build and contribute at least one hybrid.

In role-play, we are a defensive-minded and peace-loving naval state dedicated to protecting our territories and helping others in times of need. Our home planet is Zeus in the Pulsar system, and we have a colony in the neighboring planet of Delta Icarus Vega. We still have extensive holdings on Earth, including the 6 large islands in  a central position in the BSCN world's Western Hemisphere (the Old Home Islands), Mary Byrd Land in Antarctica (with the whole continent as our economic protectorate), Papua New Guinea (including the Bismarck Archipelago), the Solomons, Oceania (Fiji, Vanuatu, New Caledonia) and the independent protectorate of Southern Africa. We occupy the Saturn moons Prometheus (main base), Epimetheus, Siarnaq and Albiorix, and a small area in the northeast corner of the planet Tenelapis.

IDENTIFICATION

We do not have a colour identification to our navy but we still advise you to include AFOH in you ship's name for ID. This will make it easier for allied navies to see that we are on their side.

MEMBERS & RANKS

We follow standard naval ranks up to a certain extent. A member can move up in rank depending on his level of activity and ship contribution. Members moving up in rank will have opportunities to command our different formations (see Surface Fleet, Submarine Force and Air Fleet) in roleplay and not just the ships he has created.


High Command

  • Admiral Of The Navy HMSHomemade: He was the original founder of AFOH and is the the most experienced veteran in the navy and has great ship building knowledge. Is in charge of the N.A.S.C.C. He also handles most of the political negotiations.
  • Chief Admiral Bouexic: Builds standard but very capable ships. Is co-leader of AFOH when the Admiral of the Navy is inactive.
  • Chief Admiral Joshninja: He specializes in submarines and enjoys creating and testing new design strategies (often hybrids) as well as further refining his subs, and is co-leader of AFOH when the Admiral of the Navy is inactive.
  • Upper Admiral I am that guy: An experienced veteran that has earned his stars elsewhere, he now shares his expertise at AFOH.


Active / Recently-active Members

  • Admiral Khoi Tran: Specialises in 46 cm gun- armed cruisers. He is the leader of the Yamamoto Imperial Navy, an ally of the AFOH. Due to RP-related complications, he is known as Shigure Samukai.
  • Vice Admiral Ej2333: Also a member of the AIF. He builds almost every ship type, from battleships and submarine cruisers to super warships and flying ships.
  • Vice Admiral Skynet1864: Specializes in giant ships and fortresses.
  • Rear Admiral SpicyViper: creator of highly top secret aerospace craft which can only be discussed by admirals.
  • Commodore Shan5481: A new recruit in AFOH, though having been a rather slow shipbuilder. Focuses on working on single ships at a time, especially stable and fast battlecruisers and cruisers armed with 46cm guns and many secondaries despite having weak toughness ratings.

POLITICAL RELATIONS

We are strongly against any "evil" navies, e.g. UR, HYDRAXIS, Prometheus, Sith

SURFACE FLEET

The AFOH surface fleet was organized around the task force concept, which allowed a lot of flexibility in terms of ship composition. Cutbacks in the number of ships due to the changing world scene have necessitated a shift to a more conventional approach and the formation of standing, deployed fleets. Each fleet is composed of 3 or more task forces of multiple units of the same class and can only be commanded by senior officers (Rear Admiral and up). A typical surface task force consists of 3 - 4 super-warships (with 1 as flagship), 3 - 4 aircraft carriers, 8 - 12 battleships/battlecruisers, up to 24 - 36 escorts (cruisers and destroyers) and 12 submarines. Task forces composed of a lesser number or lighter vessels are occassionally formed for smaller missions. During periods of conflict, task forces and fleets tend to grow in size. (The list under each fleet below includes only the capital ships).


Strike Fleet

The Strike Fleet is composed of the major formations based in the AFOH Home Islands. Formerly called the Home Fleet, the change in name reflects a shift in its mission from a defensive fleet to a more expeditionary one.


1st Fleet

Formerly called A Force, the 1st Fleet is based in the main island of Hybridland and covers the Southern Home Islands.

Pacific Fleet

The Pacific Fleet is charged with missions in the Asia-Pacific region, specifically protecting and aiding AFOH territories and allies in Asia, Australia and Antarctica.


4th Fleet

Once AFOH's main rapid-response formation, the 4th Fleet (formerly H Force) is now primarily focused in the Pacific. It is based in the major island of Outremer.

6th Fleet

The 6th Fleet is a forward-deployed element of Pacific Fleet. Formerly called Force E, it is based in Fiji. It has the same ship composition as 4th Fleet but in smaller numbers


Other Surface Formations

AFOH maintains formations of smaller ships for scouting, fast attack, reconnaissance, interdiction and search & rescue missions, and can be employed independentky or assigned to task forces. Depending on ship type, these vessels are under Cruiser Force, F.A.S.T. or S.A.R.


Cruiser Force

AFOH's cruisers are organized under the Cruiser Force when not attached to task forces and is under the command of Shigure Samukai.


F.A.S.T.

AFOH's escorts (destroyers, frigates, LCS and fast attack craft) are organized into autonomous squadrons under the command of the Fast Attack SecTion (F.A.S.T.) when not deployed with task forces.


S.A.R.

AFOH also has specialized squadrons for search and rescue.
File:AFOH SAR.jpg


  • SAR Speedboat
  • SAR Salvage Vessel



SUBMARINE FORCE

The Submarine Force controls AFOH's fast and powerful submarines, and is organized into squadrons that excel in roles such as area denial, special operations requiring stealth, and the elimination of specific targets in battle situations. It is commanded by Chief Admiral JoshNinja, from Shadow Wolf III. Typical squadrons are shown below.


Multi-mission/Attack Squadrons

Multi-mission/attack squadrons are the primary formations of the Submarine Force and employ the fastest and most powerful submarines of the fleet, with the composition and number of units varying depending on the mission and objective.

File:ShadowWolfIII.png


  • Shadow Wolf III - flagship
  • Ohio Class SSGN
  • Shadow Hawk III
  • 236 Class Submarine
  • Shadow Wolf II
  • Pluton - submarine carrier (aircraft)


Deterrence Squadrons

Deterrence squadrons are deployed primarily to defend AFOH territory and those of its allies using Cobra II attack bombers escorted by Durandal FA-1S fighters launched from Oraborus submarine carriers. Those deployed on global deterrence patrols primarily use the ultra-fast Shadow Hawk submarines as escorts, while those deployed in AFOH waters are transitioning to the Achille-class to free up the former for multi-mission/attack duties. The older Triomphant attack submarines supplement the Oraborus by deploying either a Cobra II or Durandal using the Submersible Aircraft Deployment System (S.A.D.S.).

File:Durandal carrier.jpg


  • Oraborus - submarine carrier/flagship (Cobra II/Durandal)
  • Triomphant - light submarine carrier (Cobra II/Durandal)
  • Shadow Hawk II/III or Achille - hunter-killer
  • Surcouf - submarine cruiser (anti-ship/land attack)



AIR FLEET

With the rapid evolution of naval warfare brought about by galloping technology, AFOH began developing flying ships. Because of their more limited number as compared to surface ships and submarines, flying ships are organized into aerospace fleets. Each fleet is composed of 3 task forces of multiple units of the same class and can only be commanded by senior officers (Rear Admiral and up). A typical aerospace task force consists of 2 capital ships (with 1 functioning as a flagship), 3 - 4 flying carriers, 8 - 12 heavy escorts, and up to 24 medium/light escorts. Air task forces composed of a lesser number or lighter vessels are occassionally formed for smaller missions. Due however to the AFOH build-up in response to ongoing conflicts, task forces and fleets have grown in size.
