"Some states have a Navy. The Kul Tiran Navy has a state." ~ Attributed, various.

The Kul Tiras Navy, alternatively known as the Kul Tiran Navy or the Tirasian Navy is the major branch of the standing military of the Kingdom of Kul Tiras. It was known to once maintain the largest human fleets of the Grand Alliance and field thousands of ship-borne Marines in its defense. The Kul Tiras Navy dominated maritime warfare on the Great Sea for centuries, only recently put into question due to the losses it suffered during the Third War.

The Navy is usually led by the Lord Admiral of Kul Tiras, who also acts as the Kingdom of Kul Tiras' central ruler, who following Lord Admiral Daelin Proudmoore's demise by an Orcish skirmish on the city of Theramore was his widowed wife Katherine until she abdicated in favor of her daughter Jaina.

It was once boasted hundreds of ships, however many fleets and units have since been destroyed and the golden days of Kul Tiras has passed. Despite this, the Kul Tiras Navy has rebuilt and remains the dominant human naval force.

History

The precise history of the Kul Tiran Navy is difficult to pinpoint. The earliest sailors who come to Kul Tiras from Gilneas did so following the visions of the founder of House Stormsong, who landed them in a green and pleasant land that soon became one of Arathor's most prosperous colonies. As an Island nation, Ships became a simple fact of life for those who made the land their home. Other great nobles would follow in the wake of the Stormsong, including the Proudmoores, who would go on to become lords paramount of the Islands.

Before and after Kul Tiras' succession from Arathor in 1,200 BDP, Kul Tiras had built up an immense war fleet of vessels of all shapes and sizes. Over time, these warships were streamlined, categorized and standardized to become the dominant naval power of the eastern continent. Kul Tiras maintains a standard of possessing a larger navy than their next two largest competitors combined.

Kul Tiras would be involved in hundreds of battles over the centuries, ranging from the War of Silverpine to the Second Great War. The Kul Tiran Navy would be led to its greatest defeat in history during the Third War under Lord-Admiral Daelin Proudmoore as they waged war upon the Horde of Kalimdor without the backing of their allies in the Alliance. This led to a period of isolation and rebuilding for Kul Tiras, having lost almost half of their fleet, both to Jaina Proudmoore's commandeering of the fleet to Kalimdor, and to losses suffer at Theramore.

Years later, the Alliance would seek to appeal to Kul Tiras to rejoin the Alliance. After a difficult initial entry to the kingdom, inroads were eventually made and Kul Tiras was officially negotiated back into the Alliance, making the Kul Tiran Navy part of the Grand Alliance navy.

Fleet Bases and Ports

Ship Classes

Note: While Common is the modern language of the Kingdom of Kul Tiras, the Navy maintains official translations for the Lord Admiral's Ship naval prefix, ship class names and certain ship names in the Tirassi Language, as a show of cultural pride.

Active Ship Classes

Stormbringer-class Ship of the Line

Known in Tirassi as the Tormenta-class

The Stormbringer-class Ship of the Line.

The Stormbringer-class ship of the line is the current in use Ship of the Line design that has since replaced the Admiral-class Ship of the Line.

In development at the time of the ill-fated Lord-Admiral's voyage to Theramore, some believe that had the Admiral waited but a year or two longer, it could have drastically changed the events of Theramore. The Stormbringer-class improves on every facet of the Admiral-class, bringing it to the modern age as one of, if not the, most dangerous classes of battleship on the ocean to date.

Any remaining Admiral-class ships were upgraded to the Stormbringer-class, or scuttled, due to the vertical scale of improvement.

Tidebreaker-class Man-of-War

Known in Tirassi as the Tifón-class

The Tidebreaker-class Man-of-War.

The Tidebreaker-class Man-of-War is a new innovative design on Kul Tiran flagships. Smaller than a Stormbringer but larger than a Hunter or Fire, the Tidebreaker has been hailed as one of the finest designs that has ever been fielded by Kul Tiras. Finalized after the joining of the nation back into the Grand Alliance, with aid from Gilnean and Stormwindian shipwrights, the Tidebreaker has seen its first deployment in the war against the Zandalar Empire.

While it lacks the commanding presence of the Stormbringer, the payload of the Tidebreaker is immense, hosting a suitable "in-between" from the commanding ship of the line and the hearty frigates of Kul Tiras. The dream flagship for most Kul Tiran flotillas, while lacking the overall power of its bigger brethren, the mobility per fire power output makes the Tidebreaker a worthy vessel; speculated that in a fight, the mobility could potentially give the Tidebreaker an edge over the Stormbringer.

Fire-class Battleship

Known in Tirassi as the Fuego-class

A Fire-class Battleship alongside a Daelin-class Destroyer.

The Fire-class is an older but still fielded design that was completed shortly after the failed mission to Theramore. Inspired by the, then made defunct, Blaze-class Battleship, the Fire-class was made much smaller in comparison, instead focusing on quality of arms and plating to improve maneuverability. This downsizing became uniform across several Kul Tiran ship designs; though still making a number of them larger in comparison to other nations. The Fire-class was the basis for the later adapted Gryphon-class of Stormwind, though the Fire-class has been noted as being larger.

Due to the niche it fills in between the Hunter and Stormbringer, in particular with the affordable design of the latter, the Fire-class has begun to be phased out of common place usage. Where the Fire-class was once the defacto ship of the Nation, it now may face semi-retirement in the coming years.

Hunter-class Corsair

Known in Tirassi as the Cazador-class.

The Hunter-class Corsair.

The Hunter-class is the main frigate on the seas of the navy and has replaced the Inferno-class that came before it. While developed after the Stormbringer, the improvements of the Stormbringer on the Admiral-class allowed for breakthroughs in design that ultimately led to the Hunter replacing the Fire-class entirely.

It can be equated to the Gryphon-class of Stormwind or the Glory-class of Gilneas; though the Hunter is far more well equipped than either according to some. Some Hunters have been modified for transportation, rather than war, though these are usually reserved for important voyages or key-routes, such as the new route between Boralus and Stormwind which makes use of such a vessel.

Along with the Anchor-class, the Hunter is know for being at the centre of one of the Navy's most embarrassing bureaucratic errors. The class was once known as the "Hunter-class Destroyer", which caused a fair amount of issues. Destroyers are normally a type of Corvette, and thus smaller than a Frigate, the plans and names for the Hunters and Anchors were mixed up by accident, resulting in the larger vessels being known as Hunters. This becomes glaringly obvious when one compares the class to the equivalent Ancre-class Frigate, which is the Nuitois derivative of the Hunter-class, while the Chasseur-class Destroyer is their derivative of the Anchor-class.

This error had resulted in many enemies underestimating the Hunters, however, which meant the Admiralty was inclined to overlook the issue. This, however, did not last very long. By the time Kul Tiras came into combat with the Horde, the ship type was rebranded as the "Corsair", so as to correct the terminology issue.

Anchor-class Frigate

Known in Tirassi as the Áncora-class.

The Anchor-class Frigate, in Irontide Colors.

Similar in design to the Taylor-class, to the point where some have even accused either the Alliance or Kul Tiras of copying the design, the Anchor-class frigate is a versatile vessel that can serve as both a vessel of war and of transport.

More cost efficient than the Hunter-class, the Anchor-class is used primarily for patrol around Kul Tiras or for large, but non-important, cargo movement. It has largely been factored out by both the Seascaper for internal use, though it is still seen in other waters. It is a popular vessel for non-military personnel, as the Anchor-class's previous mass-use and versatile design made it a favorite for privateers and pirates alike.

Seascaper-class Transport

Known in Tirassi as the Marina-class.

The Seascaper-class Transport.

The Seascaper-class Transport is the current transport in use by the Kul Tiran fleet. Sleeker, though more fit for short-distance travel than its predecessor, the Proudmoore-class, it is used almost exclusively on Kul Tiras for transporting goods. As a result, while Proudmoores are still fielded in Kul Tiras, as time goes on, the Seascaper-class continues to replace it; with the goal of eventually phasing the class out entirely for homeland-use and replacement by the more modern schooner.

Across seas, the Seascaper-class is used, though depending on the region it may be replaced by modified versions of the Hunter-class.

Semi-Active Ship Classes

Admiral-class Ship of the Line

Known in Tirassi as the Almirante-class

The Admiral-class Ship of the Line, Sirena. The last known Admiral-class on the seas.

The base design of the famed Stormwindian Lion-class, the Admiral-class is a hulking Heavy First Rate Battleship, carrying 112 cannons and carronades. Designed just before the outbreak of the First War, the Admirals would be used as the anchor points of Tirasian lines of battle throughout the Great Wars, with the first ship of the class, the LAS Sirena, serving as the flagship of Lord Admiral Daelin Proudmoore up until its destruction at Theramore just after the end of the Third War.

The ship class was phased out by the Stormbringer-class over a year following the destruction of the last Kul Tiran hold out in Durotar, Tiragarde Keep. Remaining vessels have been put into use, but have largely been destroyed and the class was thought to have been completely scuttled until the return of the Sirena, as Lady Jaina Proudmoore's flagship.

Daelin-class Destroyer

The Daelin-class.

The Daelin-class Destroyer was an experimental designed ship that never fully reached height due to the Scourging of Lordaeron and the subsequent closing of Tirasian borders. Mostly found in regions that were isolated and not privy to later Tirassian design, such as the Isle of Havre, the Daelin-class has been modified and is used in several points around them. From which the later Icebreaker would draw inspiration, mainly the armored extended front, the Daelin is somewhat behind current design and breakthroughs. As such, while it packs a significant punch, the Daelin does not move very fast.

Proudmoore-class Transport

A Proudmoore-class vessel.

The Proudmoore-class merchant vessel is a ship primarily designed as a cargo ship to transport goods and people over long distances. Named after the war hero Grand Admiral Daelin Proudmoore, the ship was designed in the years immediately after the Second War in order to faciliate the transport of the massive amount of raw materials and laborers required to rebuild Stormwind from the northern nations of the Eastern Kingdoms.

It continues to see use across the world even today, though Kul Tiras has largely replaced it personally with the newer Seascaper-class.

Retired Ship Classess

Blaze-class Battleship

Known in Tirassi as the Arder-class.

A Blaze-class Battleship from the Third War.

The Blaze-class Battleship was an innovation that followed the Carronade-class Destroyer. Capitalizing on its weight and firing power, the Blaze slimmed down the design of the Carronade-class and added plating to the vessel to make it viable. It served through the periods of the First and Third Wars; seeing its last use in the aftermath of the failed voyage to Theramore. The slowness of the Carronades and Blazes resulted in their decommissioning following a shift in Tirassi tactics to favor long ranged engagements, in an attempt to conserve their strength, though it later inspired the design of the Fire-class battleship.

Inferno-class Frigate

Known in Tirassi as the Infierno-class.

An Inferno-class Frigate from the Third War.

The Inferno-class Frigate was the main frigate of the Kul Tiran navy from the period of the First War to the Third War and saw its final main use during the battles near Theramore. Designed by some of the finest shipwrights Kul Tiras could find, it replaced previous models of Frigates with a stream-lined and cost effective design that ultimately saw its longlived use.

It was ultimately replaced by the Anchor and Fire-classes in the years following the failed events of Theramore.

Wind-class Transport

Known in Tirassi as the Viento-class.

The Wind-class transport from the Third War.

The Wind-class Transport was a naval vessel designed exclusively during the Third War era. Using a schooner-type build, the Wind-class was meant for cheap and fast transportation that would ultimately be guarded not by the vessel it's self, but by escort.

Following the Third War, it was decommissioned, though the design lived on in the later made Seascaper-class vessel which ultimately accomplished similar goals; though with room for small cannons for personal defense.

Captain-class Ship of the Line

Known in Tirassi as the Capitán-class.

The Captain-class superseded the Admiral-class and was the first Ship of the Line designed by Kul Tiras as an evolution of naval-warfare. While prior naval battles were fought with frigates, the invention of this class completely revolutionized the sea-scape, and the Captain-class was subject to many improvements throughout its impressive service on the ocean. As a result of its cost, the ship of the line was almost wholly reserved for the Lord-Admiral until later innovations.

The Captain-class was eventually phased out by the innovation of the Admiral-class, an invention of Daelin Proudmoore.

Carronade-class Destroyer

Known in Tirassi as the Carronada-class.

The Carronade-class Destroyer was the fore-runner to the Captain-class vessel and was the largest ship known in the Kul Tiran navy for its time. The Carronade-class was susceptible to smaller ship designs, and it was known that in engagements between other maritime nations, such as Gilneas, smaller sloop-like vessels could often destroy the Carronade-class by surrounding and out foxing it.

This flaw, of being too small to be a major powerhouse, but too large to be maneuverable, led to the separate designs of the Fire-class and Blaze-class respectively, with the idea of a large powerhouse vessel eventually becoming the Captain-class.

Fleets of the Navy

First Fleet

Stationed in Boralus, the First Fleet suffered severe damage following the Cataclysm. It was later rebuilt, and is one of the few fleets that was not fully lost at sea; though half of its flotilla was lost alongside Captain Tandred Proudmoore. What remained of the fleet was heavily damaged during the Siege of Boralus. The remnants of the fleet were reinforced by Tandred's returning ships, though the majority of the ships at port were destroyed by Ashvane's forces. Despite this, the First Fleet still fielded ships, mostly those that returned with Captain Tandred, alongside the Eighth Fleet for the Battle of Dazar'alor, where Lady Proudmoore was at the forefront. Following this, the First Fleet was set to be repaired while the Eighth continued their active role; sparing the first the fate of the eighth when the latter was destroyed following the opening of the sea around Nazjatar. In the wake of the Fourth War's end, the First Fleet has been restored and serves as the flagship fleet of Kul Tiras.

Second Fleet

Sunk some time during the First War, the Second Fleet was reportedly being rebuilt prior to the Cataclysm and completed restoration during the Legion invasion. Lost at sea for months following the end of the war against the Legion, it returned to Boralus at the end of Lady Ashvane's siege of the city.

Third Fleet

Sunk on the coast of Khaz Modan, the Third Fleet, also known as the "Doomed Fleet" or the "Lost Fleet", was previously commanded by Captain Derek Proudmoore. Unlike other destroyed fleets, it is designated to remain retired for the time being in respect for the deceased.

Fourth Fleet

First sunk during the conflicts in Kalimdor, the Fourth Fleet was rebuilt under the command of Admiral John Dunelm.

Fifth Fleet

The then forward deployed fifth fleet of Kul Tiras, it is currently led by Admiral Dartlic Boreal. Currently their homeport is Boralus City.

Sixth Fleet

The Sixth Fleet, under the direction of Admiral Abraham Glendale II, has supported Alliance causes following Kul Tiras' exit from the Grand Alliance. The Sixth Fleet is currently active and has been rebuilt after being nearly decimated following Lady Ashvane's attack on Daelin's Gate. The home port of the Sixth Fleet is Kettleman Harbor.

Seventh Fleet

The Seventh Fleet suffered significant losses during the Cataclysm, but continues to patrol the waters surrounding Kul Tiras under the command of Admiral Vekion Stormwater.

Eighth Fleet

  • Last Known Leader: Captain Layla Seastock
  • Size: N/A
  • Homeport: Boralus
  • Status: Destroyed

One of the fleets taken by Jaina Proudmoore during her flight to Kalimdor, The Eighth Fleet was sunk during the conflicts in Kalimdor. It was rebuilt just prior to the arrival of Daelin Proudmoore, where it defected to the Admiral's side and was once again destroyed by the Horde. It was rebuilt, again, just before the war against the Legion. Lost at sea for months following the end of the war against the Legion, it returned to Boralus at the end of Lady Ashvane's siege of the city. It was later destroyed, a third time, after the ocean opened up surrounding Nazjatar; killing most of its crew, sinking all of its vessels, and killing the majority of its command. It has been deemed as the Unlucky Eight by other fleets due to its propensity to be destroyed.

Ninth Fleet

  • Last Known Leader: Captain Terrance Windworth
  • Size: 15+ ships
  • Homeport: Seabreak
  • Status: Active

Patrolling the waters around Seabreak, the Ninth Fleet was one of the fleets that suffered few losses in the Cataclysm. They are led by Captain Terrance Windworth. It was one of the few fleets not lost at sea due to the fact that it does not operate out of mainland Kul Tiras. Seabreak was one of the few Kul Tiras ports that remained friendly to the Alliance after Kul Tiras left it; a fact that strained relations with the Proudmoore Admiralty before the ascension of Jaina Proudmoore. Following Jaina's rise, the ninth fleet has been called to waters beyond just Seabreak and saw combat during the Fourth War.

Tenth Fleet

  • Last Known Leader: Commodore Daennica Kelly
  • Size: 5 ships
  • Homeport: Boralus
  • Status: Active

Taken by Jaina Proudmoore during her exodus to Kalimdor, the admiral of the Tenth Fleet defected his forces to Lord Admiral Daelin Proudmoore side and was subsequently destroyed in the siege of Theramore Isle. It was rebuilt just prior to the beginning of the war against the Lich King. Lost at sea for months following the end of the war against the Legion, it returned to Boralus at the end of Lady Ashvane's siege of the city. After seeing service in the Fourth War and taking heavy losses in Nazjatar, the Tenth Fleet is being revitalized with new vessels, crews, and command.

Eleventh Fleet

  • Last Known Leader: Vice-Admiral Joseph Reefheart
  • Size: 4 operational ships, 3 damaged, 2 decommissioned.
  • Homeport: Crestfall(originally), New Theramore (temporary)
  • Status: Crippled

Originally the fleet of Crestfall, the eleventh was moved to the city of Boralus after Crestfall was destroyed during the Second War. Though they had begun restoration efforts to the island, these were eventually abandoned as tensions rose to what would eventually be the Third War. Taken by Jaina Proudmoore during her exodus to Kalimdor, the Eleventh Fleet remained loyal to Lady Proudmoore against her father and largely served as peacekeepers during the city's occupation. When Theramore was besieged by Garrosh Hellscream, the Eleventh was put in charge of evacuation of civilians, though the majority of it was taken captive by the Horde along with the civilians they were transporting to safety. Those who remain are currently led by Captain Joseph Reefheart and operate out of New Theramore on the Isle of Seabreak. It was one of the few fleets not lost at sea and held strained relations with the rest of Kul Tiras due to their loyalties to Jaina Proudmoore until her eventual appointment to Lord-Admiral. It is expected to be transferred at some point out of Seabreak to mainland Kul Tiras.

Twelfth Fleet

  • Last Known Leader: Unknown
  • Size: Unknown
  • Homeport: Boralus
  • Status: Active

Taken by Jaina Proudmoore during her exodus to Kalimdor, the Twelfth Fleet was destroyed in the Fall of Theramore. While the original fleet remained loyal to Theramore, a new Twlefth Fleet was built at some point before the war against the Lich King. Lost at sea for months following the end of the war against the Legion, it returned to Boralus at the end of Lady Ashvane's siege of the city.

Thirteenth Fleet

The Thirteenth Fleet patrols and protects Drustvar's coastlines. While pirates believe Drustvar to be the easiest region in Kul Tiras to raid, the the Thirteenth surprises, and reminds them that Drustvar is still made from the same fire as the rest of Kul Tiras. The fleet is led by Admiral Dyana Itheca, and was one of the few fleets not lost at sea due to its primary duty being centered around Drustvar's naval defenses.
