The Structure of the Confederate army is split broadly into the Regular Army (full-time professional soldiers, officers and units) and Army Reserve (part-time reserve soldiers, officers and units). The Confederate Colonial Militia is not an official section of the Confederate Army, but is for the broader Confederate Military structure.

The Confederate Logistical Command (LOGCOM) and High Command (HIGHCOM) are involved in the operations of the army, but are semi-separate entities.

Organization

The Confederate Army during the foundations of the union of the colonies served in a largely law keeping function between states, mainly due to the fact there was very little state control at the foundation of the Confederacy. The Confederate Army was dwarfed by the local planetary defence forces and militias that each planet maintained. In wartime these forces were called upon to augment the 'National' army.

However upon the signing of the Treaty of Outlying System and subsequent turmoil that preceded it, the Confederate Army became the sole land based military force in the Confederacy, with issues of planetary defence, peacekeeping and foreign expeditions now under it's remit.

Currently, the army is divided into the Regular Army, Army Reserve and Confederate Militia.

The Confederate Army is divided into 6 different geographical commands:

  • Confederate Army Sol currently headquartered at (somewhere near Sol)
  • Confederate Army Pheonix currently headquartered in the Eridanus System
  • Confederate Army Delphi currently headquartered in the Harvid System
