Star Army Rikugun

The rikugun (陸軍, りくぐん, Land Army) is the combined planetary forces of the Star Army of Yamatai. These are the units and soldiers that are not part of the fleet, or uchuugun (宇宙軍, Space Army). Although the Rikugun is not considered an independent branch of the Star Army of Yamatai, ever-expanding planetary forces have increasingly asserted their own identity in ways like differences in uniforms.

The Legions of the Star Army of Yamatai are tasked with handling major ground missions and occupations, both offensive and defensive. They were established in YE 32 during the Second Mishhuvurthyar War. At this time most legions are still in the formation stage. The standard size of a Star Army Legion is about 20,000 infantry soldiers. The basic building block of the legions is the Star Army Century.
