welcome to the alliance joint navy

AJN Shield Welcome to the Turner Space Combat Academy, THE best space combat school in the known galaxy. The Turner Academy is the primary training centre for the Alliance Joint Naval Forces. Based in both the Alioth and Gateway systems, our mission is to train the best combat pilots in the galaxy, with priority given to training the AJN and the police forces of systems affiliated with the AIS. Additionally, on a time-available basis, we have training classes for traders and bounty hunters who wish to maximize their chances when encountering pirates in the less stable systems of the Frontier. We hope you enjoy your visit to the Academy. If you do not have the time or the credits to join one of our advanced combat training courses, you may like to browse our free online combat guides which are taken from our ground training classes.

-- Commander James K Winston (Elite): Turner Space Combat Academy Commander, March 3296.

Due to popular demand, we've just added a Spotter's Guide to AJN Ships In Space. This has everything you need to know to recognise an AJN ship either in deep space or parked in the dock. And of course, the rumours that the AJN's SuperJoust laser system is derived from Thargoid technology can neither be confirmed nor denied!

The Alliance Joint Navy and the Turner Space Combat Academy came of age after the Veliaze Crisis, a turning point in the Alliance's short history.
The fleet
The Alliance Joint Navy employs many different ship types in its fleet, from the diminutive Hawk to the behemoth Victor and Valiant class cruisers.

combat techniques & equipment
Lanner go boom This section contains a guide, taken directly from our groundschool syllabus, of the combat techniques that have been recognised as the most successful in the Galaxy. We cannot publish the classified procedures used for AJN and police training, so the techniques publish here are designed for single ship combat situations, such as are commonly experienced by lone-wolf bounty hunters and traders. The information contained is mainly directed at bounty hunters due to the unsuitability as fighters that most large trade ships suffer.
