Operation Northern Shield
Operation Northern Shield was a military exercise beginning 1694, led by the Imperial Constancian Armed Forces and coordinated with the Trans-Euran Continental Theatre Command. It is intended to secure the porous borders of the Imperial State of Constancia fronting the newly-expanded areas of the Republic of Antakia and to reinforce the efforts of the Borders Control Agency and State Protection Authority.
Building upon lessons learned from the Razjania Maneuvers, also known as Operation Brandy, Operation Northern Shield was also a test of the logistics, administrative, and operational capacities of the Imperial Constancian Armed Forces, as well as of the coordination and interoperability of the Trans-Euran Continental Theatre Command.
