The Royal Army or Armée Royale (also often called the Norman Army outside the U.K.) is the principle land warfare and overseas defensive force of the United Kingdom. It is either the second-largest or the largest Army in the Commonwealth of Nations, depending on how this is factored. If only the professional standing forces are counted, it is considerably smaller than the F.N.A.'s all-professional volunteer military. If the rapidly-mobilizable conscripted reserves are factored, the Royal Army exceeds the American Army in size.
The Royal Army, along with the Confederation's Bundeswehr (Federal Defense [Force]), is the first line of defense against a possible Soviet invasion. However, the U.K. cannot afford to maintain a massive standing professional military force - such as the million-strong North American Armed Forces - and a great many of the Royal Army's units are tied up in overseas territorial defense / garrison.
The U.K.'s ability to rapidly shift these far-flung standing garrison forces around has been severely diminished by the decline of the Royal Navy as the world's biggest seaborne power. Thus, the Royal Army, although a formidable force, is semi-dependent upon the North American Navy for support in order to bring its full strength into any hypothetical war in Europe.
