The Imperial Army is the Empire's principal land warfare force. The force was initially administered by the War Office on Charadin Prime, which was subsumed into the Ministry of Defence following the diaspora. The professional head of the Imperial Army is the Chief of the General Staff.
The full-time element of the Army is referred to as the Regular Army and has been since the creation of the reservist Citizens Military Force (also known as the CMF or Militia and subsequently renamed The Army Reserve) after the settlement on Krylos. All members of the Army swear (or affirm) allegiance to the monarch as commander-in-chief. However, the Bill of Rights requires Senate consent for the Empire to maintain a standing army in peacetime. The Senate approves the continued existence of the Army by passing an Armed Forces Act at least once every five years.


Current Organisation

The 1st Division comprises a deployable headquarters, while 2nd Division under the command of Forces Command is the main home-defence formation, containing Army Reserve units. 2nd Division's headquarters only performs administrative functions. The Imperial Army has not deployed a divisional-sized formation since the Gaia Lokhias Offensive and does not expect to do so in the near future.

1st Division carries out high-level training activities and deploys to command large-scale ground operations. It does not have any combat units permanently assigned.
