The Mutulese Army is the land combat arm of the Mutulese Armed Forces, alongside the Royal Mutulese Navy, Mutulese Air Force and the Royal Mutulese Marine Corps. As of 2018, it is a professional army staffed with 90,000 long-service personnel.

Organisation

Mutul is fortunate in having no hostile neighbours sharing a continguous land border. Accordingly, the Mutulese Army is configured primarily for general territorial defence, whilst the 30,000-strong Marine Corps undertake the main strategic offensive role. It is organised around three Military Regions – Peninsular, North East and South West, as well as a Mobile Reserve.

Regional forces

The chief fighting strength of each Military Region is home to an infantry division, with one mechanised infantry, two regular light infantry and two reserve light infantry brigades. Each brigade consists of a HQ company, three rifle battalions, an artillery battalion, and a support battalion with a reconnaissance company, an engineer company, an air-defence company and a logistics company. The mechanised brigades are equipped with the VBTP combat vehicles. The light infantry brigades are usually well-trained in jungle or mountain warfare, depending on its native environment.

In addition, each military region has at its disposal two independent tank battalions, a rocket artillery group, an anti-air command, a helicopter group, an engineer brigade and a logistics command.

Each Infantry Brigade consists of approximately 4,000 personnel, with the entire Military Region disposing of some 30,000 troops.

Mobile reserve

The mobile reserve, stationed near the capital city, consists of three units.

The largest of these is the Ajawal Tupilob Division ('Royal Guards Division') . This is the only division-sized formation in the Mutulese Army configured for large-scale tank operations. It consists of three armoured brigades, each with two tank and two mechanised infantry battalions, an artillery battalion, and a support battalion with a reconnaissance company, an engineer company, an air defence company, a logistics company and a maintenance company. The full strength of this unit is 15,000 personnel.

The second is the Xik Brigade. Its organisation is similar to those of the regional infantry units. However, the brigade’s personnel are trained in parachuting and air assault operations. It is primarily intended to play a rapid reaction ‘fire brigade’ role to deal with internal contingencies, or in the alternative support the Royal Mutulese Marine Corps in an offensive operation.

The final formation is the Ahaltocob Brigade. Consisting of three battalions of commandos, it is highly skilled in unconventional warfare, counter-terrorism special reconnaissance and direct action missions.

Small unit organisation

A Mutulese infantry battalion consists of a headquarters, three rifle companies and a support company. Its total strength is roughly 700 personnel.

Rifle companies are divided into a headquarters element, three rifle platoons, an anti-tank team (with three PF-98 recoilless rifles) and a grenade launcher team (with three Type-87 automatic grenade launchers).

Each rifle platoon consists 30-men in total, divided into three squads. The squads, each commanded by an NCO serving as squad leader, consist of two fireteams of four men, centred around a light machine gun. The platoon is commanded by a junior commissioned officer, supported by a platoon sergeant and a radio operator.

The battalion's support company contains its main heavy weapons assets. Typically, it possesses a mortar platoon with eight 120mm smoothbore mortars, an ATGM platoon with twelve anti-tank missile launch posts, as well as a scout/sniper team.
