The Royal Onekawa-Nukanoa Air Force (Onekawan: Te Tauarangi Roera o Onekawa-Nukanoa) is the aerial and space warfare branch of the Royal Onekawa-Nukanoa Armed Forces (Onekawan: Te Ope Manuka o Onekawa-Nukanoa). Established on the order of Māori Kingī Tama I Nukanoa in 1920 as distinct branch of the military, the Royal Onekawa-Nukanoa Air Force (RONAF) has been engaged in every major armed conflict involving Ngāti Onekawa-Nukanoa with the first major conflict being the Onekawan Civil War of 1925. With a current active strength of 42,000 and a reserve force of 4,000 the RONAF is the second largest service branch of the Royal Onekawa-Nukanoa Armed Forces.





The RONAF is primarily concerned in engaging peer or near-peer threats: and that the RONAF is likely to (a.) be engaged away from permeant Onekawan military facilities and support infrastructure and (b.) likely to be outnumbered against their opposition. In response to these major concerns, the RONAF has developed the "Total SICA" doctrine. An abbreviation of "SUPPORT, IDENTIFICATION, CONTAINMENT AND ANNIHILATION", the Total SICA doctrine governs the philosophy on how the RONAF conducts operations in the air and space domains.

The "SUPPORT" pillar is to ensure that any Onekawan forces deployed receive adequate logistical support to sustain long term operations in the fulfillment of their mission, and that there should be a sufficient degree of redundancy in any logistical support system to handle unforeseen disruptions caused by enemy action or other means. This must also be achieved under the assumption that their is not necessarily any significant friendly local support facilities, personnel and infrastructure.
