|Pretorian Guard||Home Guard||Brig. Gen. Vanessa1309||Lt. Col. Harrin|
The Pretorian Guard is South Africa's primary defense force which ensures the safety of her land at times of war. They patrol the borders for enemy activity, practise local training exercises and are ready to strike the battlefield when the nation is under threat. All soldiers receive regular supplies and daily training kits to rank up and gain experience in organised training battles. The Pretorian Guard is home to many of South Africa's congressmen, cabinet, former presidents and those citizens who are committed to a politics career back home.
Commanding Officer: Brig. Gen. Vanessa1309
Executive Officer: Lt. Col. Harrin
The Parabats are South Africa's fearsome mobile branch which deploys globally assisting her friends, allies and home nation. These soldiers are a highly skilled special forces group and are on high alert to strike the battlefield at a moment's call. The branch is currently stationed at their home base in Poland however they deploy frequently and also occasionally return home post-operations.
Commanding Officer: Col. Miyagiyoda
The Training Division was the most junior ranking branch of the South African Armed Forces where soldiers were taught the basics of fighting, military structure, war mechanics and introduced to the social aspects of eRepublik.
The Training Division is currently inactive.
The Assegai, like the Parabats, was a mobile branch consisting of South Africa's heavy hitting soldiers and tanks. They were an elite, rapid response branch who could be called to arms at any time during the day.
The Assegai was dissolved into the Parabats in 2010 due to low numbers.
South African High Command is a group of military leaders within the South African Armed Forces who advise the government and discuss matters pertinent to the military and safety of the country. The group comprises of the Chief of Staff, Deputy Chief of Staff, Branch Commanding Officers, Branch Executive Officers and Company Commanding Officers of the top 3 ranking branches. The Minister of Defense also serves the command in an advisory position acting as a liaison between government and military.
