The history of the State Security Naval Forces began when the Office of State Security under Oscar Saint-Just assumed control over all of the People's Republic of Haven's intelligence and security apparatus, and began to designate its own naval units in order to control the People's Navy.

After the Theisman coup brought an end to the Committee of Public Safety and StateSec, its naval forces were also dissolved and reintegrated into the Republican Navy where possible.

Remnants after May 1915 PD[edit | edit source]

  • The Office of State Security was dissolved and its Naval forces ships were planned to be reintegrated into the renamed Republic of Haven Navy.
  • Elements of the previous regime and military, including StateSec forces, became hostile to the newly established Republic of Haven.[5]
  • Some StateSec and People’s Navy warships, but no capital ships, were sold to third parties by its personnel or admirals. (HH10)
  • The crews of at least some of StateSec and the People's Navy units, but not bigger than battlecruiser, chose to set up independent operations as pirates or small-scale warlords; such pirate activity appeared in Verge[6] and Silesian Confederacy (three Battlecruisers were destroyed by the Royal Manticoran and Imperial Andermani Navy). (HH10)
  • Elements of the previous regime and military, including StateSec Naval Forces units, established the "Liberation Force in Exile" with the stated goal of reestablishing the People's Republic of Haven.
  • StateSec pirate units operating outside of the Republic of Haven received logistical and intelligence support from Mesa and Manpower. (SI1)

  5. proper HH10 quotation: Not everyone had been prepared to accept Theisman's overthrow of the Committee of Public Safety gracefully. In fact, initially, he'd controlled only the capital system and its fleet. Capital Fleet was the Navy's largest, of course, and two-thirds of the other core systems of the People's Republic had declared for him or, rather, for Pritchart's interim government within the first three T-months. The majority of the rest of the People's Navy had also supported him, as well. But a large minority of the Navy had been under the control of other citizen admirals or, even worse, StateSec system commanders, who'd refused to acknowledge the legitimacy of the new government. No names of rebelling sectors appeared, even when hostile warlords were referred to; one of the rebelling sectors was located near La Martine. (HHA4, HH10)
