The formal military of ELF called the ELF Defense Forces are more than matched by the hundreds of private armies under corporations or provate individuals.

Military service is compulsory but it is primarily used to weed out the weak. These are shuffled off to other sectors. Those who show real military ability are picked up by the highest private bidder to fill the ranks of the private army.

These private armies have the most advanced weaponry their resources can provide. Many of these companies are mini nations so their armies are as well equipped as major powers.

The primary focus of the formal military is naval & space followed by the air force. The private sector is more evenly divided with a strong focus on parimilitary activities.

Training is severe in all services and the forces of ELF are taken lightly only by the foolish or ignorant.
