The Tengarian Army (Tengarian: Tангария армия), historically known as the Imperial Army (Tengarian: Имперска армия), is the primary military force of Tengaria and the land section of the Tengarian Armed Forces. Its primary duties are to defend the state, to assist keeping order and stability within the state, and to assist allies in armed conflict. One of the oldest armies in existence, it was founded by St. Vasil the Great upon the foundation of the Empire of Tengaria in 1385, and although it is considered to have historical lineage from the non-standing armies of the Grand Prinicipality of Tengaria, largely was a continuation of the military tradition of the Empire of Arciluco and the Solarian Empire. Under the Empire, it was a key player in the Iconoclast Wars and wash able to crush the Green Revolution. During the Great War, it was defeated by Amathia and Ravnia but continued as a resistance movement led by Simeon Kovachev. After the war, the army largely fell under Kovachev's personal control and was instrumental in bringing him to power during the Tengarian Civil War, which also saw the TEngarian Republican Army split away.

Within the current armed forces, it remains highest in order of precedence of the service branches. In addition, it is the most well funded and promoted of all the branches. It is overseen by the Defense Minister Minister of Defense, currently Angel Zlatanev. It works in close conjunction with the Soravian Army and the militaries in Samorspi. Unlike the other Samorpsi militaries, which rely upon conscription, the Tengarian Army is completely professionalized and focuses on troop quality and specialization in warfare.

Organization

Components

Structure

The Army is structured on the old command structure of the Imperial Army; however, severe reductions in troops resulted in the suppression of each of the Imperial Army corps, as well as all but two divisions. After the end of the Tengarian Civil War, the army was raised to be 50,000, in 5 divisions. Due to gradual expansion, a smaller 12th Division was reactivated in 1995 and the II Corps was reinstituted.
