IMPERIAL ARMED FORCES
Our young Empire is a force at war, fighting adversaries who threaten our foothold on a new civilization and way of life. The most significant aspect of our current strategic reality is that the struggle with alien and anarchic forces in which we are now engaged will be a protracted one in which we will find ourselves often in conflict with all manners of adversaries.
The Imperial Armed Forces's primary mission is to provide necessary forces and capabilities to the combatant commanders in support of the Universal War and Expansion Strategies. We have thousands of soldiers deployed or forward stationed today to support combat operations throughout California to deter aggression while securing the gains we've already established. We are fighting today while simultaneously preparing for tomorrow.
To continue to accomplish our mission, we are aggressively restructuring the IAF. We are transforming from a force designed for contingency operations in the post-Defiance era to a force designed for continuous operations in a time of discovery and reclamation that presents challenges to our Empire ranging from traditional to potentially catastrophic.
The IAF is dependent upon the resources procured up until now from liberated supply caches, coupled with emergency supplemental appropriations, to support current operations. These resources will also enable the force to recover from the stress placed on equipment and Legionaries during combat and continually "reset" itself for future deployments. Moreover, these resources are required to continue to transform the IAF into a larger, more powerful force built on self-sufficient legion-based modules. This force will be more flexible, more rapidly deployable, and better able to sustain the protracted military campaigns and conduct the joint expeditionary operations required by the current security environment.
We are sustaining our universal commitments while making tremendous progress in our transformation. We will need the continued support of the People and Senate to accomplish our mission today and tomorrow while providing for the well-being of our Soldiers, their families, and our civilian workforce who are serving the IAF in this time of war.
We will take back this city, we will take back what was once this state, this continent; humanity will triumph.

When you join the 47th you cease being an individual; you are now part of the most highly trained and professional conventional combat unit in the Americas.
While the 47th is military themed with great interest in PvP our ultimate goal is the creation of our own forward operating base and the creation of a multi-guild alliance.
That being said we also have a great interest in PvP, are interested in exploration, and in our downtime take in some entertainment.
The various playstyles would rank in Legion-wide interest as such:
The 47th was originally established in 2007 as an offshoot of a Star Wars Galaxies guild from the Chilastra server.
By the time of the NGE a lot of interest in SWG had been permanently lost. A deployment or two later I became highly interested in Tabula Rasa and chose to start my own player organization for the game with a few SWG guildmates which came to be known as the 47th A.F.S. Expeditionary Force, or 47th A.F.S.E.F..
Around the time of TR's closure Earthrise caught the 47th's interest. We waited for Earthrise for over three years and were finally able to step foot on Enterran soil at game launch.
Unfortunately Earthrise was plagued with launch issues, lacked basic and rudimentary features, had an extremely unoptimized client which ran very poorly, had a small community, and incredibly slow patch releases. In June of 2011 we decided to quit Earthrise.
Moving on from there we briefly dabbled in Star Wars: The Old Republic though in the end the game was simply the antithesis in design of everything we actually enjoy in a MMO.
» RP Lite
The 47th's style of roleplay is what we've coined "RP Lite." What this means is that we subscribe to a more moderate form of roleplay. More specifically, we ask our Legionaries to be "in character" in spatial/local chat but will not require anyone to be "in character" in any team, unit, or other such affiliated chat channels. We also do not require any Legionaries to be "in character" on our forums aside from the designated roleplay forum. "In character" chat is strictly forbidden on voice comms. The bottom line is that we want to present a degree of professionalism in public spaces and limited roleplaying allows us to do just that.
» Enlistment Requirements
» Current & Prior Service Friendly
The 47th is a great environment for current and past members of the armed forces and their families. Many of our Legionaries are prior service (I personally served in the U.S. Army for seven years as a 19D Cavalry Scout: FIRST TEAM!) and enjoy being around other prior service Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines; we welcome and encourage you to join!
» Rank Referral Program
Active duty Legionaries who refer a successful enlistment to the 47th will be promoted one rank and grade up to and including Miles Gregarius (E3).

The 47th has experienced a lot of success in-game so far. Our recruiting has been strong and the quality of our people is very high. We have two operations per week and routinely pulling in a large and active player base.
It's never too late to enlist so submit your application today!
