The Space Forces of the Abwehran Armed Forces (AAF), the Weltraumflotte is dedicated towards the defense of the Home System and Colonies of the Abwehran Star Empire. With its Space Force patrolling the Empire's Territory and its Marine Corp provided security on board civilian space station, the Imperial Weltraumflotte is the place with the most action.

The majority of the Weltraumflotte's duty revolves around commerce protection and customs. This means the Weltraumflotte is also the first people to meet foreigners and immigrants. It is also responsible for the exploration of the Empire's Expansion Area and the First Contact other civilizations have with the Abwehran people. Because of this, the Weltraumflotte has the highest public profile of the Abwehran Armed Forces.

But even with all the policing and exploration duty, the Imperial Weltraumflotte is primarily a military organization. Trained the Space Combat, its Space Force is dedicated to the protection of the Empire and its people from any space-borne threat. While primarily a security force, its Marine Corp are always the first infantrymen in the action. Whether capturing pirate vessels or creating beach heads for invading planetary infantry, the Weltraumflotte Marine Corp are the Abwehran's most feared and dedicated infantry.
