The Confederate ground forces, often referred to as Grand Confederate Army or simply Confederate Army (CA), was a branch of the Confederate Military that had the primary responsibility of prosecution of ground-side military operations, under the oversight of the Army Command. It was formed from Chadian and Iliard Republic's Armies.

One of the Army's most common duties was the maintenance of planetary garrisons throughout the Iliard Arm, as well as facing hostile armed forces.

The Army utilized a wide range of equipment and vehicles in support of its infantry. Army units were often reinforced by Confederate Marine Corps, although the command structure for the two organizations remained separate. On garrisoned worlds, the Army operated in conjunction with Confederate Navy, marines, and the local constabulary to maintain order and security.
