Publisher's Description[]

"'Once the dominant power in the Inner Sphere, the Federated Suns has suffered significant reversals in the last decade. The alliance with House Steiner was never made whole through the physical uniting of the Commonwealth and the Suns, and now House Davion faces rejuvenated foes on all sides.

Within this volume, is a detailed accounting of the Armed Forces of the Federated Suns and the Federated Suns Navy. Brigade and regimental summaries, industrial listings, strategy and operational thinking, as well as the newest WarShips in the FSN inventory are all detailed.

Book Structure:
Field Report: AFFS is a Kapteyn Universe fiction supplement designed to offer information on the state of the Armed Forces of the Federated Suns (AFFS) following the Fourth Succession War and prior to the coming of the Clans of Kerensky.

The first section of the report—Federated Suns Overview—provides a short look into the current state of the AFFS’ present condition and efforts, broken into three parts. The Strategic Update details the military’s current objectives, while Future Plans provides some potential insight into the future of the Federated Suns and the Federated Suns’ Navy discusses how the AFFS is rebuilding its warship forces.

The second section, Industries and Support, presents a overview of the Federated Suns’ military industries, production and fleet after the end of the Fourth Succession War.

Line Units presents a short update on the history, current status and notable facts for each brigade of the AFFS.

Also included are details on the new WarShips of the Federated Suns Navy and a map showing the deployment of the AFFS and FSN.

NOTE: This is an updated version of the previous KU Field Report: AFFS.'
