Malivian military commanders derive their military expertise from modernized Trigunian deep battle tactics and indigenous guerrilla warfare, the Trigunians developed and modernized the concept of deep battle and by the end of 2800s it had become part of the Army Field Regulations later on Malivia adopted this and it still is being used in a more updated modern form.
Deep operations has two phases; the tactical deep battle, followed by the exploitation of tactical success, known as the conduct of deep battle operations. Deep battle envisaged the breaking of the enemy's forward defenses, or tactical zones, for fresh uncommitted mobile operational reserves to exploit by breaking into the strategic depth of an enemy front. The goal of a deep operation is to inflict a decisive strategic defeat on the enemy and render the defense of their front more difficult, impossible - or, indeed, irrelevant. Unlike most other doctrines, deep battle stresses combined arms cooperation at all levels: strategic, operational, and tactical.
Malivian military academies provide higher education to higher officers and officers of specialized kinds of armed force (engineering, medical, etc.).
There also exist schools for Non-commissioned officers and sergeants, often part of the draft service for distinguished soldiers, as a step towards the professional military career.
Reservists are subject to periodic training exercises of duration a month once a year.
Fireteam: A fire team is a small military sub-subunit of infantry designed to optimize "bounding over watch" and "fire and movement" tactical doctrine in combat. Depending on mission requirements, a typical fireteam consists of 4 or fewer members; an assistant automatic rifleman, an automatic rifleman, a rifleman and a designated team leader; the role of each fireteam leader is to ensure the fireteam operates as a cohesive unit. Two fireteams are organized into a squad.
Squad: the basic unit consisting of 8 combatants.
Platoon: consists of two squads.
Company: consists of two platoons.
Battalion: consists of two or more companies.
Brigade: consists of more than one battalion.
Division: consists of five or more brigade. It co-ordinates and unifies the activity of the brigade in a specific zone of the country.
Corps : an operational formation, sometimes known as a field corps, which consists of two or more divisions.
Field army: is a military formation in many armed forces, composed of two or more corps and may be subordinate to an army group.
Theater: In warfare, a theater is an area or place in which important military events occur or are progressing.
Central High Command: coordinates the armed forces of the country.
Traditional ranking structure followed by the Army and MARA:
The Malivian Republican Army (MARA) is any of several armed paramilitary movements of around 80.000 to 150.000 members though estimated around 20 to 35 thousand are capable fighters in Malivian dedicated to Malivian republicanism, the belief that all of Malivia should be an independent republic. It is also characterized by the belief that political violence is necessary to achieve said goal.
According to internal regulations, every member of the MARA military forces has to take a vow in which they formally assume the commitment of fighting to establish "social justice" and the "republican ideals" in Malivia.
The symbol in the center of the MARAs flag is the old flag of the Malivian Imperium, which transmits the message "learn and fight for Malivia", as a sign of the importance of ideological education has for the MARA.
At the beginning MARA employed a diverse assembly of weaponry, most of it bought from individual sellers, and this generally continues to be the case. Even today, several MARA paramilitaries still possess small quantities of many different kinds of rifles and shotguns.
To achieve its military goals, the MARA considers that they must have properly trained fighters similar in capability to the Malivian Armed Forces.
Newly recruited paramilitary fighters have to follow a two months basic military training program that is different from the physical training programs. The basic training consists of having to identify firearms and getting used to specific models and their physical operation as well as mortar rifles and basic communication systems. The PT programs are separate from the main training schedule, as they are included in the day-to-day life of a paramilitary fighter if they can be attended, by climbing mountains, running with loads, participating in the digging of military trenches, making bunkers and occasionally also some swimming programs taking place in natural water resources such as rivers and lakes. Playing of soccer is another activity available to all male and female paramilitary fighters as it gives them a proper mental relaxation. MARA clearly advises all Paramilitary commanders to avoid assigning barely trained paramilitary fighters to do heavy load tasks.
After the basic training for newly recruited paramilitary fighters, the paramilitary commanders have to coordinate with the paramilitary fighters assigned as military instructors about their evaluation and performance records. After some time, they organize another set of advanced training for the better-performing paramilitary fighters. The second phase of training can be considered as similar to that of elite forces, also including the organization of military parades and the issuing of firearms. After this training and parades, the MARA gives its members the title of "Protector of Malivia", establishing the obligation to vow to fight for the goals and ideals of the group and for Malivia, until his or her death.
