The Mascyllary Navy (Hesurian: Maskillische Marine, lit. 'navy', Hesurian pronunciation: [maˌʁiːne]) is the navy and branch for naval warfare of the Reichswehr of Mascylla. The commander of the Navy is High Admiral Friedrich Stühre, and is supervised by the Minister of Defence of the Realm Rüdiger Meißert and Prime Minister Thomas Falkner. As of 2020, the branch had a strength of 19,934 active soldiers and 6,820 reserve personnel, 54 aircraft, operated six naval bases, and maintained presence at three other civilian and trade harbours. Its size makes it the largest navy within the Erdaran Union. The Mascyllary Navy was founded in 1924 after the Mascyllary Revolution, in which the navy of the Mascyllary Kingdom, the Reichsmarine, was formally disbanded. It is no organizational continuation to its predecessor.
The Navy's mission is to support the objectives of the Reichswehr and the Ministry of Defence at large: "to protect the integrity and safety of Mascylla and to promote, sustain, and support peace and security internationally." In comparison to its other branches, it receives sufficient funding and is equiped with more modern technology, though it is usually behind the Air Force in terms of modernness and readyness. Though it is specific for naval-based affairs, the other branches of military also maintain land power suited for their maritime, lettoral and land environments respectively, the msot notable branch of which is the Naval Marine Corps (Marinespezialkorps). The Navy also maintains a small fletilla of aircraft for reconaissance, strategic support and rescue operations.
