Flags of Redford
Main Faction Flag
Main Naval Flag
The Redford Republic, which is a coalition of 3 systems with 3 others as territorial defenses and as utilities, has made it's formal introduction to the forum after quite some time. This Republic mainly is comprised of the Captial System, The Robotic Federation, The Bhjak System, the (Taken Over) Yukong System, the Jking System (which is only 2 planets), and a special area in the Remnants of the Anvil. The Republic's true occurrence in the galaxy was 50 years beforehand, but most of the events recorded from back then have either been deleted or have been corrupted due to aging.
The Captial System
This system, Comprised of 11 Planets and 13 moons, is the most un-inhabitable but is by far the most occupied system. It's peoples have come from either itself, refugees from the Galaxy, or, most recently, the Jking peoples. It's massive Populus of about 25 Billion in total, is mainly spread out between the Captial's Planet, which was renamed to Furgson III, Klogon, and Furgson II. Moreover, large military operations have been carried out on the nearby moons of these planets. These moons have basically been turned into hovering fortresses and shipyards, helping maintain Redford's growing fleets. This also helps with the massive near-overcrowded planets, as multiple people have been sent into the Navy as a way to defend these planets. Due to this being the Captial, this system is where most, if not all, Redford Fleets are stationed.
The most advanced system out of the 6, it's populous, on the Federations 3 planets, mainly comprise of robots and cyborgs. This, however, makes them a Prime Target for Tech-hunting Pirates (Nicknamed Scavengers by Redford), as the Robotic Federation's tech is some of the most valuable in the regions nearby. Due to this, specialized Naval Groups have been built for them, Like the Muriak-Class Battleship (Which is one of the oldest non-replaced warships in Redford). The system has been highly sympathetic to Redford, though recent events of scandals have soured relations with Bhjak.
Comprised 7 Mineral-Rich Planets, the Bhjak system is the Wealthiest of the 6, mainly funding the Navy's repair cost through selling these minerals. Through multiple, though outdated, defense stations keep pirates at bay. Rumored to have made deals with the Black Market known as "The Ship Library", scandals have revealed that Bhjak have been leaking secrets of Redford fleet designs for cash. This and other acts, such as "Having Workers do 12-8 hour shifts without breaks," have worsened relations with Redford. However, the system knows that Redford cannot survive without it.
Once the main shipyard of Redford, The Delta Invasion left it without it's main provider and capital. Now it simply resides as 2 gas Giants with defunct, dead shipyards. Redford has been keeping watch of the system and placing small defense fleets incase of invasions, though it's unlikely to happen.
This old ally had to be taken over by Redford, after the Attacks on it's shipyards. Now under what is considered a hostile takeover, it's constant military watch by orbiting Battleships has kept most of the 4 planets and 10 moons in check. This system is now mainly a producer of food goods, and has been made more of a Puppet-system instead of a real one. It's more of a military System then it's old roots.
The Remnants of the Anvil was discovered by Redford after the Collapse and disappearance of Jking's Captial. after 5 Years, 2 40km Moons now reside there, producing the Bulk of Redford's Fleet. This heavily defended system is also the most dangerous, as the area where the moons reside have been recorded to have random solar flares from unknown places. This system has been considered an Independent System, and thus has it's own representative.

Naval Mounted Guns, are based off WW2 Images that were seen through unknown means. These guns can vary in caliber from 10-In. to 45-In., and are very potent.
These shields can vary from singular sided shields to "bubble" shields. They can be made stronger by adding more cooling systems and power to them, making them near-indestructible if powered enough by planets. However, these shields on ships at their strongest can only sustain 3 30-inch shells before failing.
These Ion Emitters are special from the Ion "Beam" Emitter, by the fact that the more power is fed through it, the more potent it becomes. This version also can be placed in turrets, or be turned into an anti-fighter turret. These modifcations do limit the power output though.
