At Shadow Fleet, we pride ourselves on our professional structure, which is actually based on real-world military organization and practises.
Two Major Fleet Commands make up the fleet - the Personnel & Training Command, responsible for the recruitment, retention and training of all Shadow Fleet members; and the Operations & Support Command, tasked with managing the fleet's individual task forces, task groups and SIMMs.
Each Major Fleet Command (or MFC) is managed by a senior player holding the rank of Vice Admiral. They are each assisted by numerous Rear Admirals who head up several Subordinate Fleet Commands (SFC).
The role of the Personnel & Training Command is to recruit and retain new members to the fleet as well as provide training and support to existing members. Naturally, the Command includes the Media & Recruitment Team whose job is to promote the fleet externally; and Shadow Fleet Academy, tasked with training the latest Officer Candidates for a future role on one of our SIMMs. Additionally, the Head of the Personnel & Training will oversee player applications, leaves of absences and member disputes.
The Operations & Support Command is tasked with managing and providing operational support to each of the fleet's SIMMs. This ranges from ensuring posting activity levels remain high, to providing detailed help guides and templates to commanding officers. Without the organization the Operations & Support Command provides, each SIMM would remain completely independent from one another, going against one of the fleet's core principles - community.
