The Imperial Military
Imperial Military – The military arm of the Galactic Empire is a vast, seemingly infinite engine of oppression and destruction capable of maintaining an iron-fisted rule throughout the whole of the known galaxy. Only portions of the Outer Rim Territories escape its reach, and even these remote areas are still under threat. While most regard the military as one enormous, monolithic entity, the truth is there are many arms, several of which enjoy vigorous, even bitter, rivalries with one another. Perhaps the most iconic of the Imperial militaries is the Imperial Navy, responsible for policing the incomprehensibly vast reaches of space in between civilized planets and systems. The Navy is best represented by the Star Destroyer, the very symbol of the Empire’s power and a ship capable of blockading a planet completely on its own by sheer dint of its firepower and complement of troops and vehicles.
Less prominent, but still widely feared, is the Imperial Army, which many erroneously believe includes the independent Stormtrooper Corps. The Army and its subsidiaries are responsible for all operations conducted on the surface of a planet, including the maintenance of Imperial garrisons and operations conducted under the direction of planetary governors, sector Moffs, and Grand Moffs. Just as the Navy has a vast array of starships at its command, the Army possesses an almost infinite variety of vehicles and troops that are suitable for virtually any environment known to the galaxy.
From Age of Rebellion
The Gunnery Corps is a subdivision of the Imperial military that includes members of both the Imperial Army and the Imperial Navy – although there are more of the latter than the former. As with troops in the Vehicle Corps, with whom they often work, members of the Gunnery Corps receive rudimentary training as troopers, but the bulk of their instruction is in the use of vehicle- or installation-mounted weaponry. The ubiquitous turbolasers that are found on the hundreds of different starships in use in the Imperial Navy, as well as the vast variety of lasers that are deployed in ground installations and the many vehicles employed by the Vehicle Corps, are all fired by members of the Gunnery Corps.

This site is constantly under revision, no blog posts are final as this is a work in progress place for me to develop my game settings and rules. Some posts might be placeholders for future content, so feel free to check back later for updated information.
