Assets

Because they lack diversified interstellar production capacity, the Enclave must make efficient use of their resources to secure their borders. Their primary concerns are early detection and rapid response, due to their proximity to Sol and the threat of Collective aggression. Any resources not devoted to securing their system against the Collective are designed to regulate and control the considerable flow of travel between Council and Commonwealth systems that passes through their space.

Ship Classes

With only the resources of a single system at its disposal, the Enclave naval forces are comprised mainly of ship classes imported from Council space, with a small number of aging classes from the Federal Commonwealth. That said, there are two classes unique to the Enclave that are produced in the Virginis system:

The Vestal-class frigate is a line of specialized escort vessels with highly sensitive sensors and detection systems. The ENSF uses a dozen of these vessels to carefully monitor ingress and egress through their system, and its specialized detection systems are capable of carefully analyzing the interior of other ships, helping the Enclave combat smuggling and other clandestine activity from passing through their borders.

The Martyr-class strike cruiser is the Enclave’s answer to other interstellar powers’ capital ships using the comparitively limited manufacturing capacity at their disposal. Though small even by cruiser standards (scarcely larger than most escort classes), the Martyr-class is notable for the multitude of high-powered weapon systems. Requiring a proper supporting fleet to compensate for its relatively light armor, the Martyr-class rivals much larger battleships in sheer firepower. Though they possess only a handful of these ships, the Martyr-class is the iconic hull in the Enclave’s armed forces.

Installations

Enclave jump beacons are notoriously well fortified with extensively armed and armored defensive stations positioned nearby. Ships entering the system are subjected to thorough scans and checks to determine their legitimacy and purpose – indeed, it is not uncommon for captains passing through the system to find themselves delayed when randomly selected to be boarded and interviewed.

These installations also enable the Enclave to levy tolls on travel and heavy taxation on commercial activity passing through its borders.

The anchors of these defenses are the formidable Beacon-class sustained force platform, designed to operate at peak efficiency under extended siege conditions. These installation have redundant power generation, extensive shielding and armoring, and high-efficiency aeroponics and recycling systems. Its combat role is to support an attendant fleet with supply, repair, and long-range weaponry.

Planetary Forces

Primarily staffed by ENG light armored units, Enclave settlements are not heavily fortified, instead relying on the space-born forces to prevent any significant threat to their holdings. In fact, ground forces spend more time and effort functioning as domestic security, combating organized crime and terrorism. In the last couple decades, the Gendarmerie has gained notoriety for its efforts in reacting to natural disasters and providing humanitarian relief, despite its official status as a military force.
