"The Rebel Alliance is too well equipped. They're more dangerous than you realize."
General Cassio Tagge[7]

The Alliance Military, also referred to as Alliance Armed Forces, the Rebel military, or the Rebel Alliance Military, comprised the paramilitary forces of the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Galactic Civil War. It consisted of the Alliance Army, the Alliance Fleet, and the fleet's Rebel Alliance Starfighter Corps.[7] Chancellor Mon Mothma was the Commander-in-Chief of the military.[1] High ranking positions included the Supreme Commander of the Alliance Armed Forces[3] and supreme commander of the Alliance fleet.[4]

The Alliance military was rather large; by the time of the Mid Rim Offensive, it included hundreds of battle groups.[24] 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.[23]
