Military of Montenbourg
The King as Sovereign is Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces. He is also the husband, brother and uncle of individuals either having served, or are currently serving,
in the Armed Forces. The King is the only person to declare war and peace. This dates back from when the Monarch was responsible for raising, maintaining and equipping the Army and Navy. During peace, the King mainly performs ceremonial roles, such as Inspecting the Troop, attending a very small amount of Passing Out Parades, and attending the Trooping of Colour. Sometimes His Majesty attends training schools to see the progress and the standards of the training. The Sovereign's role within war time however changes dramatically. Throughout this time, His Majesty, with the advice of the Prime Minister, Defense Secretary, Chief of Staff, and a number of other high rank military officials, gives the orders for troop movements. He also gives order for the recruitment process, may declare Martial Law, may decide on conscript.
His Majesty's is the sole power within the Armed Forces. His Majesty's Personal Guards, are trained in the military and are selected for further special operation and enforcement training. The only person that the Guards may take order's from are His Majesty himself. At the order of His Majesty, the Guards may arrest and detain citizens, to be trailed by a court of three judges, and a panel of 12 jury members. However, this was last used by His Majesty, King Edward II, 1960s for the treason against the people of the state by his predecessor.

Young recruits are taken to Fort Mary Of Lepanto, the Royal Army Training Facility. the army under the command of General Prince J. Bourgeon.
The Royal Air Force (RAF) is the aerial warfare service branch of the Montenbourg Armed Forces. Formed on 1 April 1962. The RAF has taken a significant role in Montenbourg military history, playing a large part in the Second World War and in more recent conflicts. The RAF is one of the most capable and technologically sophisticated air forces in the world. As of January 2012 it operated 327 aircraft, making it substantially large. Most of the RAF's aircraft and personnel are based in the Montenbourg; with many others serving on operations (principally Afghanistan and the Middle East) or at long-established overseas bases (Malta, Cyprus, Gibraltar, and the Falkland Islands). The RAF's mission is to support the objectives of the Montenbourg Secretary of Defense, which are to "provide the capabilities needed: to ensure the security and defense of the Montenbourg and overseas territories, including against terrorism; to support the Government’s foreign policy objectives particularly in promoting international peace and security."
The RAF's mission statement is:
“ ... to provide an agile, adaptable and capable Air Force that, person for person, is second to none, and that makes a decisive air power contribution in support of the Montenbourg Defense Mission.”
The mission statement is supported by the RAF's definition of air power, which guides its strategy. Air power is defined as: "The ability to project power from the air and space to influence the behaviour of people or the course of events."
Although the RAF is the principal Montenbourg air power arm, the Royal Navy's Fleet Air Arm and the Montenbourg Army's Army Air Corps also deliver air power which is integrated into the maritime, littoral and land environments.
