Operation Vigilant Resolve, beginning on 08.VII.1674, was a defensive operation aimed at increasing frontier security that was undertaken by Benacia Command, with the support of member nations of the Raspur Pact, following the Kalgachi occupation of the Upland Confederation and the revelation, from Elwynnese sources, of the extent of the dynastic and hegemonic ambitions of the King of Amokolia & Batavia.

The revelation of the extent of Amokolian ambition and designs for installing the King of Batavia upon the Golden Mango Throne drew the factious Vulture States together in common cause. In spite of border skirmishes and a general chaffing under the presumption of the Black Legions with regards to the exercise of supreme command over all allied forces in the Benacian theatre of operations, the "vultures" swiftly came to a ready consensus that the conquest of the eastern heartlands of the former Imperial Republic by a Batavian was deeply undesirable. In consequence of which they willingly made common cause to meet the newly perceived Amokolian threat and readily endorsed UGB proposals to establish a multinational force to watch the inter-Amokolian frontier established after the partition of Mishalan in 1673.

Because of the length of the frontier between Amokolia and Batavia on the one side and Elwynn and the Unified Governorates on the other, a reorganisation of of Benacia Command was necessitated - in this the Black Legions were obliged to cede their leadership function over the regional banner groups outside of the territories of the UGB to the rising national militaries of the Benacian Raspur Pact states that arose in succession to Shireroth after the Fracture. Responsibility for the Northern Banner Group accordingly passed to the Union Defence Force of Elwynn; The Drak-Modani Defense Force became the lead for the Southern Banner Group; whilst the Grand Army of Ransenar - with assistance from the Black Legions and Sovereign Confederation assumed overall control of the Eastern Banner Group. The Central and Western Banner Groups would however remain under the direct control of Benacia Command via the Black Legions, the instrument through which it had carved out the swathe of territory that became the Unified Governorates.

Even those states without a common frontier with Western Amokolia were alarmed by the prospect of a deeply destabilising lunge at Shirekeep by a new antikaiser; Ransenar, Sathrati, the Sovereign Confederation, and even distant Talenore, would each offer a contributory battalion towards a Multinational Force in Mishalan.

Concerns about the extent to which the democratically elected government of Batavia was aware and, more importantly, supportive of its King's ambitions with regards to the Golden Mango Throne resulted in a flurry of communiques between Merensk and Kingsworth, finally resulting in the receipt of discrete assurances from the mildly perturbed Prime Minister that Batavia had no intention of entangling itself in eastern Benacian matters and would remain neutral no matter how the Amokolian affair played out.

The operation was originally scheduled to conclude no later than XV.1676 upon the activation of the Vigilamus Network, however this was deferred and the forces deployed on the operation were instead utilised to garrison the fortifications.

After 24.VII.1678, the allied forces deployed as part of Operation Vigilant Resolve found themselves engaged in the opening stages of the Second Amokolian War.
