"The Rebel Alliance is too well equipped. They're more dangerous than you realize."
General Cassio Tagge[5]

The Alliance Military, also referred to as Alliance Armed Forces, the Rebel military, or the Rebel Alliance Military, comprised the military forces of the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Galactic Civil War. It consisted of the Alliance Army, the Alliance Fleet, and the Rebel Alliance Starfighter Corps. Chancellor Mon Mothma was the Commander-in-Chief of the military. The Alliance High Command served as the principle authority by which military policy was carried out. Rebel Alliance Intelligence Service served as the Alliance Military's intelligence-gathering and covert operations branch.

During the final days of the Galactic Civil War, the Rebel Alliance defeated the Galactic Empire at the Battle of Endor, which led to the Alliance reorganizing into the New Republic . The Alliance Military was therefore transformed into the New Republic Defense Force.[20]

The Alliance military was rather large; by the time of the Mid Rim Offensive, it included hundreds of battle groups.[21]

  18. [[Star Wars: On the Front Lines states that the formation of the Rebel Alliance took place two years before the Battle of Yavin. Since the battle of Yavin occurred in 0 BBY according to Star Wars: Galactic Atlas, it can be deduced that the Alliance Military was also formed alongside the Rebel Alliance in 2 BBY.
  19. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary dates the formation of the New Republic as taking place thirty years before the Starkiller Incident, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 4 ABY. Therefore, It can be deduced that the New Republic Defense Force was formed in 4 ABY as well.
