The Ejercito del los Estados Confederados is the land combat arm of the Confederate States of Latin America. It operates large expeditionary, and fixed land forces to accomplish its mission of defending the interests, allies, people, and Constitution of the ECAL.

The Commander-in-Chief of the Army is President Michelle Bachelet. She controls the Army through the Secretary of Defence (Ramon Diaz), who in turn works through the Seceretary of the Army (Pedro Alvirez).

The Army has tended to be neglected by the government, being relegated to using obsolete equipment. The EEC, for example, retired its last M4 Sherman tanks in 1979. The Army still has large numbers of Leopard tanks, and UH-1 helicopters. Since the late 1970's the Army has gradually modernised, and indigenous equipment was introduced. Today it is regarded as a highly advanced Army. The Army has persued technological advancement in a curious way. While a lot of its capital equipment is quite old, Latin America has kept ahead of most of the world on network centric warfare, and battlefield management.

The Army's military commander is General de Ejercito Roberto Rodriguez.
