At the time of its formation, the Anzat Core Fleet was comprised, almost entirely, of former members of the Royal Anzatan Commonwealth Navy, to the extent that it is almost impossible not to see its founding as simply a renaming of the RACN. Among academics, there is debate as to the reason for this. Some historians believe that the annexation of the Commonwealth occurred on such short notice that the Tresarian Navy had little time to find a more elegant way of folding the Anzatan Navy into Tresario's own military forces. Others maintain that it was a calculated decision, possibly to placate the likely disgruntled Commonwealth military or to take advantage of the already-formed camaraderie within the RACN. Regardless, despite its mostly RACN composition, the Anzat Core Fleet quickly integrated into the Tresarian Navy. The smooth transition was likely precipitated by the change in command staff and the recruitment of new members into the fleet, both of which occurred almost immediately after its formation.
Shortly after the induction of the RACN into the Tresarian military, the commanding officer of the RACN, Admiral Arashi Starhunter, was promoted to the position of Deputy Minister of Military Operations, and Captain Kevin Wolff was chosen to replace Starhunter as commanding officer of the Anzat Core Fleet. This change in command, in conjunction with the enlistment of new recruits into the ACF, greatly aided the fleet's development of a distinct Tresarian identity in addition to its Anzatan one.
