Keltia Command is a theatre command established by the SANE alliance as part of its global strategy to defend against the threat of Jingdaoese (later USSO) hegemony, facilitating the integration of allied units (primarily Shirerithian and Natopian) into a single integrated chain of command for operational matters.

By virtue of having the largest continental possessions on the Keltian continent the Keltia Command is controlled by the Natopian Defense Force. Established in 1646 AN, it's first mobilisation occurred in 1655 as the War of Lost Brothers became global in scale. Sometimes known as the Forgotten Command in contrast to better resourced counterparts in Apollonia, Benacia, Tapfer and Trans-Eura, it nonetheless imbued itself with the martial ethos of Normark, in whose lands it was established, and made a vital contribution to the emerging world war against Passio-Corum.

Following the collapse of the Great Enterprise of Keltia, the Command was rent by schism as former Steward Burgrave Zinkgraven refused to heed the summons of his successor to return to Shirekeep and face the inquiry into his conduct. After many months of evasion and double dealing the patience of the Imperial Forces finally ran out and "loyalist forces" led by the Prefect of New Blackstone staged a bloody assault on the encampments of the Sea-Reavers turning the War of the Casks into a three-sided conflict.

From 1664 the Military of the Wechua Nation was formally integrated into the allied command structure, increasing the available reserve of manpower whilst requiring considerable material assistance in turn.

+War of Lost Brothers
Date Formation Subject Summary
08.II.1656 Musican Fleet Bombardment of Blore Heath The primary target of the attack was the city's commercial district, home of a crucial east Keltian brokerage, allowing for the plundering the shoreline and waterways around Blore Heath under the cover of the bombardment, the attack also served in part as a reprisal for the role played by the Jogi Regiment in raids on the Natopian settlements of Elijah's Rest.
12.II.1656 Normark Army Group Committees of Defence, Elijah's Rest Following escalating raids against civilian settlements on the eastern and southern frontiers of Elijah's Rest, the Elian Militia begins to organise committees of defence, to better coordinate the hitherto unorganised response of local vigilante groups to the violent attacks by members of the Stripping Path, seeking to make abductions for the varying purposes of sacrifice and indoctrination.
12.IV.1656 2nd (Bombardment) Group (temp. deployment) Ardclach Orbital Strike NSS Damocles on temporary assignment from allied Space Command.
21.IV.1656 Tuktuvut Confederation Raising of the banners, Elkheim On this day the Tukudiggi, the assembly of the Tuktuvut clans, elected Jegerdatter as war-leader after receiving weapons, food and ESB-minted imitation Kalgarrands, from Keltia Command. Resentment had been mounting steadily as Haifans became more numerous along in the northern reaches of the eponymous strait. With raids affecting settlements along the eastern and southern frontiers of Elijah's Rest, these resentments had broken out into open conflict as the Tuktuvut began taking the side of Normarker vigilante groups engaged against the marauding devotees of the Stripping Path.
24.IV.1656 Black Angel Squadron Anti-shipping sweep, Gulf of Jangsong Strike package to (qty 1 Virgo-class scout ship, qty 2 Stealth fighter "Black Angel") engage and neutralise Palliscian-Haifan shipping transiting between Ardclach and Jangsong/Elijah's Rest.

A further qty 12 suspects perished whilst resisting arrest.
24.IV.1656 3rd (Support) Group Anti-shipping sweep, Talenore On temporary detachment from allied Space Command, qty 12 Virgo-class scout ships to conduct anti-shipping operations directed at Voorpost. Aim for complete eradication of Voorpost Detachment maritime assets and harbour air defences.
24.IV.1656 Area Defence Vexillation Air defence operations, Talenore Consistent with previous engagements, counter any radar contacts designated as unidentified or hostile on an approach to Talenore with maximum available force. Engage at optimum range with remaining Buk surface to air missiles once targeting solutions are acquired and deploy Trump autocannons for point defence of MoMA Station and harbour district.
13.XII.1656 All Forces The Great Enterprise of Keltia (GEK), Theatre-wide The Great Keltian Enterprise marks Shireroth's entry into theatre, a second advent, for which the passage of the Musican Fleet was merely a prelude. With deliberate and overwhelming force, allied forces will liberate Nova England from pernicious influences, impose terms for a truce, and end the so-called Cod War in the Great Western Sea. At the Day and Hour of the commencement of GEK, the Shirerithian Steward, Burgrave Zinkgraven, shall assume temporary command of Keltia Command on the basis of seniority.

In anticipation of GEK biometric screening is mandatory for all allied and affiliated personnel from this moment forward and will be enforced by regular, randomised, spot-checks. Any person who fails to submit to screening and or cannot recount the watch code for the hour must be immediately detained. Any person engaged in a flagrant breach of general orders, or of a narratively improbable act, may be summarily executed on the authority and concurrence of the relevant unit commander and political officer.
13.VI.1657 Natopian Security Forces Establishment parade for the NSF, Elijah's Rest Operational Security in Elijah's Rest, known as Normark, has been, from this date transferred from the NDF to the Natopian Security Forces (NSF). Army Group Normark will henceforth support rather than lead counter insurgency operations in the demesne.
