The Soravian Army (Soravian: Нарозалічна армія; Soravianhna armiya) is the land branch of the Soravian Armed Forces. It also includes the Soravian Marine Force, tasked with naval landings and other sea-based infantry exercises. With around 300,000 active duty personnel, the Soravian Army is Euclea's largest land force. It is supplied domestically by a range of companies and conglomerates, as part of Soraviana's domestic military industrial complex. It is integrated with other member militaries of Samorspi, who it regularly conducts joint exercises with and supplies.

Ranks and insignia
The Soravian Army is organised into four staff groups (групи персоналу hrupy personalu), where all members of the army will be organised into. The ranks of the army have stayed the same since 1983, however the marshal rank was created in 1993, but is reserved for the highest administrations in the army and is not likely to have over ten simultaneous holders.
