The Imperial Army of Erebonia (エレボニア帝国軍(ていこくぐん)), commonly referred to as the Imperial Army (帝国正規軍(ていこくせいきぐん)), is the national military force of Erebonia.

Background

The Imperial army is under command of emperor Eugent Reise Arnor III and his Imperial government, represented by Giliath Osborne.

The army consists of a large number of state-of-the-art, mechanised tanks, divided into more than 20 military armoured divisions. Currently, the army is developing its air force to further increase its power.

In S.1203, approximately 70% of the Imperial army was under direct command of Chancellor Giliath Osborne and therefore considered the force of the reformist movement.
