The Elbresian Ground Forces is the principal land warfare force of Elbresia, a part of the Elbresian Armed Forces and consists of 320,000 enlisted personnel, 30,000 of whom are reserve. The branch participates in conflicts worldwide and is the major ground-based offensive and defensive force of Elbresia, and also serves as a contingent of the Coalition of Crown Albatross's peacekeeping operations. It also operates as a central organ of the ANS military agreements, and is largely supplied and trained by the Zamastanian military.

Small arms

Most of Elbresia's military equipment is supplied or manufactured in conjunction with Zamastan, Quetana, and Constantio, largely through modernization and mutual defense agreements. The army employs various individual weapons to provide light firepower at short ranges. The most common weapon type used by the army is the Z4A7 carbine rifle. The primary sidearm in the Army is the 9 mm Z9 pistol. Soldiers are also equipped with various hand grenades, such as the Z67 fragmentation grenade and Z18 smoke grenade.

The Elbresian Ground Forces doctrine puts a premium on mechanized warfare. It fields the highest vehicle-to-soldier ratio in the world as of 2020. The army's most common vehicle is the Rapid Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (RMWV), commonly called the Terrier, which is capable of serving as a cargo/troop carrier, weapons platform and ambulance, among many other roles. The Talon-2 tank is the army's main battle tank. Other vehicles include the Leopard Armored Personnel Vehicle and multiple types of Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles.

While the EGF Aviation Branch operates a few fixed-wing aircraft, it mainly operates several types of rotary-wing aircraft. These include the TAH-60 Kingfisher attack helicopter, the TAH-60A Vulture tactical transport helicopter and the TAH-471 Egret transport helicopter.
