The Army of the Republic of the United Cities in the Lanzerwald (Cibolan-Diets: Leger van de Republiek van de Verenigde Steden in het Lanserwoud) is a military organisation that constitutes the land-based armed forces of the Republic of the United Cities in the Lanzerwald. The army consists of three corpses, that were based on the Kriegskorps Ludwigshafen, the Dragonerkorps Ludwigshafen and the Zandarijn Liberation Army. Following the reorganisation of the armed forces of 1709 these corpses have been renamed as 1ste Krijgskorps, 2de Krijgskorps and the Dragonderkorps. The Luchtkrijgskorps is a newly created corps in the army that is responsible for conducting aerial warfare, which was a task of the Kriegskorps Ludwigshafen previously. The Army of the Republic of the United Cities stands under the command of the stadtholder of the republic.
