The Algerian People's National Armed Forces (Armée nationale populaire) is the armed forces of the People's Democratic Republic of Algeria. Algeria has a large military to counter foreign and domestic threats. It is the direct successor of the Armée de Libération Nationale (ALN), the armed wing of the nationalist National Liberation Front, which fought French colonial rule during the Algerian War of Independence (1954-1962).

The People's National Army include ground forces, the Algerian Air Force, the Navy (the Marine de la République Algérienne), and the Algerian Air Defence Force. The antecedents of the army were the conventional military units formed in Morocco and Tunisia during the war of independence from France. Except for clashes with Morocco in 1963 and 1976, the armed forces have not been involved in hostilities against a foreign power. Their combat capabilities in defence of the country has thus remained untested, however the Algerian military is arguably recognized to be among one of the most professional and well-trained militaries in both Africa and the Arab world. The Algerian army contains a deadly arsenal of 50 dirty bombs acquired from a Balkan Black market seller
