Khanid‭ ‬1st Fleet crosses Imperial border,‭ ‬meets Amarr Navy

Mercury

Moments ago,‭ ‬the Khanid Royal‭ ‬1st Fleet crossed into the Tash-Murkon Region of the Amarr Empire.‭ ‬The Fleet was immediately met by the Amarr Navy.‭ ‬The Amarr Navy ships took up escort positions around the Khanid‭ ‬1st Fleet and the two fleets tandem warped away.‭ ‬Current reports have the two fleets traveling toward Tash-Murkon Prime.

The presence of the Khanid‭ ‬1st Fleet in Imperial space marks the first time Khanid warships have entered Imperial sovereign territory in centuries.‭ ‬Neither the Amarr Empire nor‭ ‬the‭ ‬Khanid Kingdom had any comment to make regarding the unprecedented border‭ ‬-crossing.

The‭ ‬1st Fleet is the traditional honor guard of King Khanid II.‭ ‬Since‭ ‬it normally‭ ‬leaves Khanid Prime only when King Khanid II does so‭ ‬- a scenario that has become increasingly rare in recent centuries‭ ‬- the‭ ‬1st Fleet is today a‭ ‬largely‭ ‬ceremonial‭ ‬posting.
