The Ercinean military is a long-established organization, heavily geared toward peacekeeping and population defence. While neither the largest nor best armed force in Assembly space, they are not a foe to be taken lightly.
Ercineans have the ability to fly, and their innate navigational ability makes them superior pilots to any other race. Following from this, their naval forces depend largely on smaller vessels, retaining the manoeuvrability and flexibility of action and reaction that their natural abilities provide. The Ercinean navy boasts by far the largest number of raider-class fighters per capital ship of any major Assembly Navy.
The Ercineans also take responsibility for the defence of Farseer territory.
Ercineans are masters of the art of Fabian tactics. Lacking the numbers to successfully prosecute pitched battles, their strategists are content to draw out phases of combat into lengthy campaigns of attrition. Since the ercineans are almost always engaging defensively, such tactics exploit the weakness of an aggressors' logistical concerns - an invader is always vulnerable in their supply lines and lack of secure positions.
