The British Army began in April 2010 after wide-spread military reforms, in preparation for Erepublik V2, dissolved the Royal Navy and Special Forces Support Group. After the reforms, the British Army was not a branch, but a group of branches:

At this time, there was no commanding officer for the Army, and control was handed directly to the Chief of the General Staff, responsible also for the United Kingdom Special Forces.

January 2011 Reforms

After further changes to the battlefield module the British Armed Forces underwent further structural reforms and with the reintroduction of the Royal Navy and the Royal Air Force as independant branches, the British Army became one arm of the British Armed Forces, tri-service organization.

It was further split into regiments:

June 2011 Reform

In June another reform came to the Armed Forces. The British Army lost its regiments in favour of the simpler command structure of a Commander-in-Chief with the possiblity of assigning two Commanding Officers.

Gambit8 was the first "Commander-in-Chief, Land Forces" after the June Reforms, and opted for a single Commanding Officer, JamesB009.

October 2011 Reform

In the October reforms of 2011 the British Army was singled out to be the main, active fighting force of the British Armed Forces, first with the closure of the RAF and then with the reform of the Royal Navy into an IRC inactive branch.

It was subsequently decided to rename the Royal Navy the British Army Reserves.
