Naval Aviation Edit

The Langley Navy's air arm has historically been an integral part of the service, employing aircraft of various types in support of the surface fleet's actions. From 1968, the Langley Navy operated an aircraft carrier, the HMS Kyoko Zeppelin Soryu, which enabled it to launch carrier strikes against potential enemies; after the retirement of the Kyoko without replacement in 1988, the Langley Navy was without carrier capability until the acquisition of the HMS Asuka Langley Soryu (ex-SNS Jupiter) from the Shinra Republic in 2013.

The vast majority of the Langley Navy's aircraft are either of MESS or Shroomanian origin, with some indigenous designs (P-99, US-2, navalized T-50) currently in service or about to enter service. The US-2 is particularly noteworthy, as it will be the first flying boat to enter service with the Langley Navy since the retirement of the PBY Catalina in 1968. The Langley Navy is also in the process of acquiring domestically-produced AS565 Panthers (designated MH-65 Dolphin) to supplant its existing fleet of SH-60 Seahawks.

Naval Infantry Edit

Main article: Langley Marine Corps

The Langley Marine Corps is the primary amphibious force of the Langley Armed Forces. It is considered part of the Navy under the civilian leadership structure of the Langley Armed Forces, but it is considered a separate branch under the military leadership structure. Historically a small yet highly professional fighting force, it has been undergoing significant expansion in numbers and capabilities ever since Lelouch Lamperouge first took power in 2007.
