According to the 1989 Manchurian Constitution, control of the armed forces is primarily of the President, while the Defense Minister carries out the order, and the Prime Minister oversees it.
It is divided into the Talai Cooha (army, Manchu: Талаи Цооча), the Deyetun Cooha ("Aerial Force", air force, Manchu: Деыетун Цооча), Maritime Force or "Mederi Cooha" (navy, Manchu: Медери Цооча) and the Gendaramie or the Boo Cooha (Manchu: Боо Цооча).
While the Manchurian military is mainly headquartered in the capital city of Fengtian, it also has a significant headquarters in Port Arthur, the capital of the Manchurian SSR, and an important military city in Manchuria, Manchuria's main naval port.
After Manchuria received independence from the Soviet Union, it chose to remain aligned with Moscow. As a result, Manchuria, along with Tajikistan, inherited some of the former Soviet Armed Forces, whereas the Soviets withdrew all of their warplanes and aircraft from all of the newly independent republics.
During the "New Generation" era, as the Manchurian economy improved, Fengtian approved for mass increase in defense spending.
Eventually, Manchurian armed forces became very active in CSTO military drills.
In 2008, Manchuria was admitted into the CSTO, during that time, became considered the CSTO's second most powerful country. Its defense spending was $35.8 billion, and possessed considerable military strength.
In 2011, President Jalafungga approved for military intervention in the Middle East on Russia's side. Approximately 107 Manchurian troops partook in the Battle of Yemen against Saudi Arabia, 24 Manchurian bombers partook in aerial missions against Saudi forces.
In 2013, the government of Yemen granted Manchuria permission to use a base in Yemen, effectively giving Manchuria its first overseas military base.
The Manchurian Navy ordered two Kirov battlecruisers from and an Udaloy destroyer from Russia, as well as 20 Sukhoi Su-35s. In 2013, Manchuria's defense spending was $42.7 billion USD, and $51.3 billion as of 2018, making it the third-highest spender of all Russia's military allies, and second-highest if not counting China.
Despite being a Russian ally, Manchuria also began investing in French and German equipment, including an F-35 and a Dassault Mirage. Moscow was not opposed to the decision, stating that they respect Fengtian's decisions. However, there were fears that Manchuria would use the equipment and give their specs and codes to Russia.
In 2018, the Manchurian air force cooperated with a concentrated Yugoslav, Russian and Bulgarian aerial attack on Albania.
