As the Republic of Xahastan became stronger politicly, the Xahastan Defence force was able to procure stronger and more advance weapons, such as surface-to-air missiles; M60 machine guns; ArmaLite AR-18s, FN FALs, AK-47s and M16 rifles; DShK heavy machine guns; LPO-50 flamethrowers; and Barrett M90 sniper rifles. Most of these new weapons were acquired through black market arms dealers and donations from sympathisers. The Xahastan Defence Force also uses a variety of bombs such as car and van bombs, time bombs, and booby traps, using explosives including ANFO, gelignite, and the plastic explosive Semtex.
The Xahastan Defence Force also procured a large former Libyan arms depot, giving them access to heavy weapons such as T-55 and PT-76 tanks as well as M-46 artillery pieces and Type 63 multiple rocket launchers.

Eyes of the Revolution
The Eyes of the Revolution is the intelligence agency of the Xahastanian Defence Force and works closely with it in surveillance and covert warfare. The Eyes of the Revolution was formed from the merger of the Royal Security Association, Republican International Police and the Worker's Police of the Worker's Revolutionary Party.
The Eyes of the Revolution undertake mainly surveillance and covert warfare roles. The Eyes of the Revolution operate elite commando units and 'snatch squads', as well as secret police and covert surveillance vehicles.
Since its foundation the Eyes of the Revolution have been very active in covert warfare against the Australian Government and other micronations. The Eyes of the Revolution usually undertake attacks against high level political targets and government infrastructure. The Eyes of the Revolution snatch squads have been accused to be the masterminds behind countless disappearances of mainly neo-nazis, self proclaimed 'Antifa' members, police officers, young liberals and rival micronationals. The Eyes of the Revolution commandos have also been behind some low level bombings and have funded and planned attacks on behalf of other groups such as the Johnston's Creek Liberation Army. It was discovered by the NSW Police that members of the Eyes of the Revolution funded, planned, and helped execute the bombing of Sydney Airport parking building in 2022. The Eyes of the Revolution have also raided the headquarters of the Dick Smith Holy Warfare Brigade and destroyed their bomb making equipment under the grounds that their activities were 'offensive'. The Eyes of the Revolution are also responsible for the theft and procurement of heavy weapons and aircraft.
