The Taldryan Navy is one of two major branches of the Taldryan Defense Force. It is currently tasked with the preservation and security of Clan Taldryan.
- Main article: Taldryan Navy/History
Owing to the influence of former Imperial personnel, as of 38 ABY the Taldryan Navy was organised along the lines of an Imperial Navy battle squadron.
Heavy Attack Line:
Victory-class Star Destroyer
Ship of the Line, Planetary Bombardment
Patrol, Pursuit, and Skirmish (PPS) Line:
Typical Task Forces
During normal patrols of the Caelus System, the Taldryan Navy relied on a standard patrol group composition. One of the fleet’s four Vindicator-class heavy cruisers would be assigned as the patrol group’s command ship. Two ships from the Patrol, Pursuit, and Skirmish Line would be deployed with the Vindicator to assist in intercepting smaller ships.
Wartime Task Forces
For wartime deployments, Taldryan maintained two standard task force compositions. The most frequently-deployed task force, used in medium-sized engagements, was centred on one of Taldryan’s three Star Destroyers. The task force’s flagship would then be reinforced with two Vindicator-class heavy cruisers and the entirety of the Patrol, Pursuit, and Skirmish Line, and if necessary, the fighter complement would be topped up with squadrons seconded from other capital ships. This composition offered both a significant amount of ship-based firepower and a minimum of a full wing of TIE/D Defenders and TIE/sf space superiority fighters. (By default, these task forces would be designated “Task Force Arbiter”, a nod to the Taldryan fleet’s name under Consul Rian Taldrya.)
In the rare instances when greater firepower was needed and neither the Iron Navy nor the forces of other Clans were available, the Taldryan Navy deployed their entire order of battle as a single task force, with the Axios acting as flagship.
