Main article: Pretorian Guard

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

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 Icon-Poland.png Poland however they deploy frequently and also occasionally return home post-operations.
