The Imperial Legion is the main ground force of the Enlightened Empire of Tarsas. The organisation was first established in 843 after the collapse of the Praetorus Legion, the army of the old empire. It is among the most technologically advanced militaries in Pardes, spending a large amount of money per soldier. The military is under direct command of the Emperor of Tarsas and the High Commander of Tarsas.

History

The Imperial Legion finds its roots in the most ancient Latin tribes of Tarsas. They founded what would eventually become the Legion under the unification of Arga I.

SH305  Tarsas Siege Artillery 20
Error creating thumbnail: File missing
Siege defensive artillery built into emplacements on the Ulthrannic and Ankaran borders. Despite the removal of the guns from the Ulthrannic border, there remains a staunch opposition to removing them from the Ankaran border due to their historical role as some of the most pivotal defenses against Ankaran and Ulthrannic invasion. The guns technically remain in service but are nominally maintained and the emplacements are no longer staffed. Ammunition production ceased in 1955 and hasn't resumed since. It is unlikely the Legion would staff these guns or use them in an event of an Ankaran invasion.
