Organization

As with all armies, the Anean Armed Forces has a command structure. Unlike many armies, however, the AAF is very informal when not in the public eye. Officers will be around enlisted soldiers and even the highest generals will speak with the newest privates.

The rank structure and insignias of the AAF are very similar to the ranks in the United States, but only has three regular general or admiral ranks.

Branches

Anean Ground Force

Nicknames:

  • Hellhounds (Federation, ASE)
  • Andromeda's Liberators (Geminorian, Agebbian)

The Anean Ground Force is the backbone of the Anean Armed Forces. With numbers in the tens of billions, the AGF defends the Empire as a whole and has the numbers to project their power across Andromeda and the Milky Way.

The AGF was formed in the aftermath of the First Federation War, which was nearly the end of the Empire. As Emperor Welhan needed to reunify the systems of the Empire that refused to rejoin. This resulted in the Anean Military Reformation. During the AMR the AGF was modernized and trained to fight interstellar wars.

For the next 700 years the AGF fought in every Anean war and intervention against Federation expansion. Their moment of pride was during the Great Galactic War where, even though billions died, the AGF fought until the end and to the death to protect the nation.

Before the Third Federation War the AGF numbered about 200,000,000 and were among the most elite of the galaxy. Afterward, following the devastation of the AAF at the hands of the Federation, Emperor Xaimoungkhoun I reformed the military by increasing the size of the forces at the cost of the elite training that the military had.

In just 80 years after the end of the Third Federation War, the AGF had reached it's current size of 80,000,000,000 soldiers. Military doctrine hadn't changed, however, instead favoring small groups of soldiers in the tens of thousands during invasions over massive deployments in the millions or tens of millions. Despite less money going to training, the weapons of the AGF only improved over time and still made the AGF a force to be reckoned with.
