The Chinese Military includes all the armed forces that comprised the Chinese Federation and later its successor state, the United States of China. It was one of the dominant military forces in the world prior to the dissolution of the Chinese Federation.

General Overview[]

The Chinese Military is the main military force of the Chinese Federation at the start of the series. From what is known, it's one of the most powerful militaries in the world due to it belonging to one of the premier powers of the world. It's seen being lead by the High Eunuchs due to the young age of Empress Tianzi.

Li Xingke is the first member of the Chinese Military to be seen and he serves as a commander for the Chinese Army along with others such as Zhou Xianglin and Hong Gu. Other officers are seen in the background and have lighter uniforms compared to the heavy armor worn by Chinese Infantry members.

Strategy[]

Longdan

Longdan providing protection to the Gun Rus

As a faction that controls the largest population in the world. The chinese military base their strategy around it. This is most likely to compensate for their lack of advanced technology compared to their peers. By using their large numbers to their advantages they are always seen using swarming tactic to exhaust their enemy regardless of their own casualty. A strategy that Savitri called "reasonable." This is achieved by unleashing waves of Gun-Ru against the enemy to encircle and overwhelm them, while the Longdan provided firing support from behind. A strategy that has been proven effective against Suzaku and Zero. In the hand of a capable commander like Xingke the chinese military is a foe that must not be underestimated.

Corruption[]

Chinese oppression

Chinese Federation soldiers using their own citizens as slave labor

Despite being one of the three most powerful nation in the world, The chinese federation is incredibly corrupt and this affected the armed forces considerably. Leading to some to seize wealth and power for themselves. One such figure is Colonel Ren where he even create his own personal kingdom deep in the mountain outside the influences of Luoyang and the Eunuch Council. Ren then amass his own wealth by using the civilian he supposed to protect as slave labor and when they are ceased to be useful they are then disposed of without any consequences. While it's not explicitly shown Ren stated that being in the military is quite profitable leading one to believe that maybe he is not alone in misusing his military status and there is probably more such people like Colonel Ren all over the federation that created their own personal fiefdom.

Branches[]

Ground Forces[]

The Chinese Ground Forces are the ground warfare of the Chinese Military. It comprises basic ground-based infantry units. The army is tasked with defending China and its interests and appears primarily in R2 following the Black Knights retreat to Horai Island following their exile from Area 11. Infantry members have dark green armor over tan-green undershirts and have noticeably more bulkier armor than the Britannian Infantry and the body armor also has plates covering the shoulders as well and a samurai-like helmet to cover the head. The standard issue Knightmare used by the Chinese Federation is the Gang Lou and come in large numbers. Chinese ground forces also use the Longdan which commands the entire fighting force. Other vehicles included are standard issue tanks and APCs among other vehicles.

Air Force[]

Chinese air capabilities are rarely seen in the show other than a few appearances. What is known is that the Chinese Military has their own version of a VTOL Gunship much like their Britannian counterparts and also have large bombers as well which are shown being capable of dealing heavy damage to large structures such as the Mausoleum of Eighty-Eight Emperors. Being one of the three dominant superpowers in the world, it's most likely that the Chinese Federation had a significant air capability.

Navy[]

The Chinese Federation was once described as being able to enforce a blockade upon Britannia and cooperated with the Europia United during the "Indochina Incident" implying that the Chinese Federation also has significant naval capabilities. During the Battle of Fukuoka Base, landing crafts are seen being used by the Japanese exiles also showing strong naval capabilities. During the First Assault on Tokyo Settlement, Chinese Federation naval vessels were assembled and deployed to the East China Sea for reasons unknown.
