The current structure of the New Ingerland Army see it divided into a number of separate units for organisation and administration. It includes the army's order of battle and the headquarters locations of major units. All units belong to a single commands - the Land Command. The command is in turn composed of a number of regiments and battalions, which are grouped into brigades for deployment as a taskforce. The battalions are the smallest tactical formation in the army, with most regiments serving only as administrative groupings.


The following corps exist within the New Ingerland Army.

Royal Corps of Cavalry

The Royal Corps of Cavalry or RCav is the overall umbrella grouping of all cavalry units in the New Ingerland Army. Consisting of four regular and three militia regiments, the corps has units based all over the country. The corps contains armoured, formation reconnaissance and ceremonial units, with each assigned to the various brigades across New Ingerland. The three militia units are considered to be the oldest in the Army, having descended from units raised during the Crimean War.

The largest regiment is the Royal New Ingerland Regiment, which was raised in 1946 and is descended from the various regiments that were formed to fight during the Second World War.
