The Ebolan Navy

While ships have flown the Ebolan flag in naval battles for years, most of those ships are usually seen lugging cargo, fishing, or flying a more respectable flag. In Summer 810wk the first ships purpose built for the Ebolan Merchant Navy rolled out of the ship yards.

The armed merchant ships carry cargo and passengers between Ebola and her trading partners, patrolling the shipping routes and protecting their fellow merchants along the way.

For anti-piracy raids and peace-keeping blockades, the navy is still regularly supplemented by Merchant lugs, fishing boats, and ships borrowed from other nations.
