The Gwladcoed Army is the main fighting force and the senior service of the Gwladcoeden Security Forces. It consists of the Gwladcoeden Regiment as its main infantry body. The aim of the Gwladcoeden Army is to defend the country and her allies from any invading military threat, althought it may assist the Civil Defence Corps and Constabulary in completing tasks should the need arise.
The Army is lead by the Colonel of the Security forces however the Pendraig holds the ceremonial title of Commander-in-Chief, at which, in the army, is ranked as a Brigadier.
During peacetime the Gwladcoed army, with the exception of staff officers, has no full-time staff and is made up of purely voluntary reservists. There is no conscription in Gwladcoeden as it is constitutionally banned.

There are three grades of officers, from most senior to least senior - Field Grade, Company Grade and Officer Cadets. Officers typically hold administrative and leadership roles, although some qualifications and roles - such as doctors and chaplains - are always held by officers.
