The Galactic Empire 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
A subsidiary branch of the Imperial Army, the Vehicle Corps is a specialized division of troopers who receive rudimentary infantry training but specialize in piloting the various forms of vehicles utilized by that military organization. This includes not only land and sea vehicles, but aircraft that cannot achieve orbit on their own (any orbital craft falls under the auspices of the Imperial Navy). Repulsorlift operations, ground vehicle operations, and aquatic vehicle operations all fall under this umbrella; however, the lattermost of these is typically grouped in with the subdivision of the Imperial Army known as the lesser Imperial Navy, responsible for waterborne operations on the surfaces of planets throughout the galaxy.
