eBulgarian Army (eBA), was the main and official Bulgarian fighting force. It's the bulk of Bulgaria's war might and main "perpetrator" for the victories in all conflicts that the country has been involved in, through the years of its existence. For every Bulgarian player, it's a matter of honor and pride to be part of the army structure. The modern Bulgarian Army has been established in February 2010, when a major reform has been implemented, to match the growing Bulgarian population after the "New Year's" baby boom. It inherited the older structures that operated, as official Bulgarian fighting force. In its peak, eBA consisted of more than 600 active players, and took a major part in the war struggle of both Bulgaria and PHOENIX alliance. The eBA was estimated highly, as one of the TOP 10 armies in The New World.
eBA flag copies the battle colors of the real Bulgarian army. It combines the country's official flag colors (white, green, red). The basis represents the Bulgarian military decoration "For bravery" ("За Храброст"). In the centre of the flag, there is a portrait of a golden lion framed by a shield on a white background. In the four corners are embroidered golden laurel monograms, with center orientated initials „eБА" (eBulgarian Army). On the header of the flag is embroidered the military slogan "С Нами Бог" ("God is with us").
After several reforms and reorganizations, caused by the changes in the military module, the army holds a new structure and branches separated by requirements in strength and activity, shown from lowest to highest here.
