The Adammic Army was formed as the single branch of the Military of the Empire of Adammia on 21 April 2013. It has seen action twice.

History

On 21 April 2013, Decree I (Military) was signed into law by Emperor Adam I. This created the Adammic Army, and appointed him as Commander-in-chief. That day, he managed to secure two recruits for the Army, Prince Jake and Matthew Foster.

The first training session of the army took place in Tytannia on 28 April, when the soldiers attempted to hit the trunk of one of the two trees in the province with a makeshift javelin. They returned on 5 May for more practice, but were interrupted by a young rogue Adammic citizen, who stole one of the fake guns that the Army were using, starting the Skirmish of Tytannia. On 30 May 2013, the first military directive created a basic structure to the Army.

The Army sat inactive for a long time until October 2013 when Emperor Adam (now the Field Marshal of the Army) gained another recruit for the army, a school friend. The new recruit wanted to be a paratrooper, but the logistics for an actual paratrooper unit were too much for the Ministry of Defence to pay for, so the Imperial Airbourne was created, an honourary paratrooper unit which technically served as a standard infantry unit in the army. In December 2013, the Imperial Airbourne became the first unit to adopt a motto: "It could be worse. You could be dead."

9 January 2014 saw the creation of the Special Operations unit, and a restructuring of the main infantry section of the army. The infantry section was restructured again on 25 January. Around this time, the army was involved in the Astley Meadow Insurgency, the flashpoint of which was the Skirmish of Astley Meadow. When Borealia joined the Empire in July 2014, a further 3 soldiers joined, at which point the Army peaked at 15 members. With the armed forces largely inactive in the second half of 2014, the Ministry of Defence disbanded most of its old units.

Equipment

Usually, the Adammic Army fights unarmed. The Western Regiment has access to some mock weaponry such as toy plastic swords and Nerf guns. The 3rd Infantry Regiment creates its own makeshift weapons, such as spears, and has also been known to use air rifles. It is unknown what equipment the other units use, if any.
