The Alaskan Armed Forces is the second largest in North America, only second to the United States in military capabilities. Presently one million Alaskan citizens and legal residents serve the armed forces as personnel. Over 1,200 are deployed in international missions, 300,000 are active and 700,000 are on reserve. Conscription is legal, with a one year minimum but currently not enforced. In case of active conscription exemptions are granted to certified pacifist groups, conscientious objectors, and the medically unfit. However, these groups must provide an alternate, civilian service at the period they are supposed to serve, or will be sentenced to two years in jails or katorgas, depending on their physical conditions. Conscription is applicable only for men, women being allowed to volunteer in most combat services.

The Alaskan military was descended from Russian units in Alaska in the 19th and 20th century. These units were successful in the Russo-Japanese War, where they are credited in the victory in Mukden Manchruria over the Japanese. In World War I, they served on the Eastern Front. In the Alaskan Civil War that followed, many units deserted to the Alaskan Socialist Republic, others to Sonoma, New Albion, Oregon, and New Russia. When the AFDR was founded, all the Armed Forces of the former Alaskan states have been integrated.

Although undoubtedly based on the military of the Russian Empire, the Alaskan Armed Forces developed a distinctive character based on its proximity to the United States and Borealia. Still, the Armed Forces has a good relationship with Russia and the other former Soviet republics, sharing certain military equipment though Alaska mostly produces its own designs.



The Army is the largest of the Armed Forces, totaling 220,000 personnel. Geographically organized into nine military districts, corresponding to territories of the former American Krai. Mechanized divisions are equipped with T-80 and Alaskan Medved Tanks. The standard rifle is the ShB-62 assault rifle, an Alaskan version of the Finnish RK 62 and since 2000 the ShB-05 bullpup assault rifle.
