Following the example of Cruisana, it is part of the doctrine that the Armed Forces of Feniz will not operate in foreign territorial waters without either the consent of the foreign nation or a UNV mandate.

Troops for expeditionary missions will be instructed about the respective target country through a detailed Pocket Guide.

Forces Structure

There are plans being developed to set up a Militia (in order to satisfy the tribes that used to wear arms always and everywhere) under the control of the Emirs. They do not want to be without defence when attacked like when the Jezen troops came in and the central command did not react in time. The Emirs also want to control the constabulary, perhaps without the border component.

Under the supreme command of the
(Minister of Defence) the Armed Forces of Feniz consist of the following components:

Commander-in-Chief of the Royal Army and
of the Fenizic Expeditionary Corps

The Royal Army is organized and trained for defence and counter-attack with multi-purpose, highly mobile land forces including amphibious, airborne and close-air-support troops for the national defence, or vexillium-wide under UNV mandate.

In the 303AP reorganisation aiming at "structural attack incapability" (STRAIN), the army was reduced by 2 (airborne and mountain) regimental staffs, 5 (amphibious, airborne, mountain, tank and artillery) battalions, and 50 tanks. 1 artillery battery was retained. Furthermore, the Intercontinental Intervention Command was deprived of its integral logistics forces which have been summarized under a new, independent Logistics Command.
