I agree with you, and let me support your post with few words. And I understand why we're talking about missiles, as when we're going to have physical borders it will be in space.

First of all - we will be physically attacked once we have physical ...

I'm agreed with you. At this point, and for the near future, there are too many ranks that could be a complication in order to share out the duties, I think.

How should an Asgardian Defence Force be established? Should it be based on the structure of an existing or former military and how should individual services be broken down (ie, Army, Navy, Airforce)? What would the ranks of the service be? What would the chain of command look like? ...

Mar 27, 02 / Mar 24, 18 12:40 UTC
I beleive the current systems should be set in place, with a few minor adjustments, due to the scenarios. People that will be recruited will need to undertake different types of training, due to the new space environment.

I agree with both Rincoadeje and Asolfr, particularly with Asolfr's comments on compulsory military service.
I have 2 main points to add:
1: An argument could be made for compulsory service in a "civil defence" unit- such units on earth do not fight but handle fire-fighting, floods ...

Agreed. As Asgardia won't be able to produce this things it will hit hard or our economy if people will use money to purchase such things instead of using them on something more productive. I will explain it a bit better:

Slyfox44 is correct. I am curious, how many Asgardians are current or former intelligence professionals? I formerly spent 15 years in the US Army with 8 of those years in a leadership position in the Intelligence field.

Asg 2, 01 / Jun 19, 17 08:52 UTC

The most difficult aspect of forming this type of organization is because Asgardia doesn't have any territory of its own (yet). Any intelligence centre would have to situated within another states territory. Which unless we want to cause a major diplomatic incident, we will need to seek permission from ...
