The New California Republic Defence Force, the NCR Defense Force, or the NCRDF is the standing offensive and defensive force for the New California Republic and stands as one of the most powerful military forces in the post-war era. The NCR Defence Force recruits NCR citizens and members of allied factions. There are no age, gender or race restrictions to join the NCRDF, as long as the candidate meets the mental and physical requirements they are eligible to join. At varying points in its history, the NCR has seen combat against raider gangs, super mutants, the Enclave, the Brotherhood of Steel, and Caesar's Legion, playing a major role in establishing NCR power in the wasteland and expanding NCR territory.
Post Masters Rule Edit
After the defeat of the masters army the defense force of Shady Sands was officially turned into the New California Republic Defence Force.
From 2198 to 2248, the NCR Defense Force had gone under a period of rapid growth and expansion with new towns and settlements joining the ever growing NCR, militias were integrated into the military further increasing its ranks and power.
As of the late 2280s, the New California Republic Defence Force is divided into four main branches - the Army, Air Force, Marine Corps, and the Navy, as well as the special forces branch known as the Special Warfare Command.
The NCR Army is the primary ground force of the NCR Defence Force, and is also the largest branch in terms of manpower. The Army is the primary combat force of the NCR, having seen action against Raiders, the Brotherhood of Steel, the Enclave, Caesar's Legion, and other factions. The primary mission of the NCR Army is twofold, to defend the Republic from hostile factions, as well as to secure settlements and caravan routes, and maintain order in areas of the wasteland not covered by law enforcement, which are found mostly in large settlements. The NCR Army has proven a force to be reckoned with, successfully defeating rival factions, including the Master's Army, Brotherhood of Steel, Enclave, and Caesar's Legion in open battle, as well as eradicating most large raider bases and gangs in five main states of Shady Sands, Los Angeles, Maxson, Dayglow, and The Hub by the year 2300, though raiders remain a threat in more remote areas of the NCR.
The majority of the NCR military consists of regular infantry. NCR infantry are trained in a course based on the pre-war US Army, including both basic and advanced training. The majority of NCR infantry are armed with either an M16A1 assault rifle or an M199 Carbine, supported by troops armed with SMGs, shotguns, light machine guns, sniper rifles, grenade launchers, rocket launchers, energy weapons, and other small arms, and are equipped with combat armor based on pre-war designs. Other standard issue weapons include a bayonet which doubles as a combat knife, as well as fragmentation grenades and sometimes a sidearm. For a complete list of NCR infantry weapons, see below. This training and equipment means that the NCR soldiers significantly outclass raiders, mercenaries, and the forces of Caesar's Legion in combat.
In addition to regular infantry, the NCR has two airborne divisions trained in the use of parachutes and "fast-roping" from helicopters and Vertibirds, and two divisions of mountain infantry, trained in the Sierra Nevada to fight in mountainous areas. Skirting the boundary between infantry, cavalry, and mechanized infantry are two divisions and multiple smaller units of bicycle infantry, an idea dating back to around the turn of the 20th century that was revived as bicycles proved easier to repair or manufacture than mechanized vehicles, allowing greater numbers of be fielded. Bicycle infantry use pre-war or post-war manufactured bicycles for transport, before dismounting a safe distance from the front and fighting on foot.
While the NCR is one of the more heavily mechanized military forces in the post-war world, they still have eight divisions of horse-mounted cavalry, as well as one division mounted on camels- the descendants of zoo and circus animals that survived the war. Most NCR cavalrymen are armed with an M199 Carbine and an N99 10mm pistol, though some prefer privately purchased lever-action rifles and revolvers for their familiarity and ease of use on horseback. The cavalry also make use of shotguns, SMGs, and even heavy weapons such as M-79 grenade launchers, China Lake pump-action grenade launchers, and shortened "paratrooper" variants of the M249 Squad automatic weapon, though these heavy weapons are difficult to reload on horseback. In addition to firearms, NCR cavalry carry a saber, which, while not frequently used, is still perfectly capable of cutting down enemies at close range, should the opportunity arise. NCR cavalry are used for patrols of areas unsuitable for vehicles, pursuing retreating enemies, attacking the flanks of an enemy, as well as mobile infantry, traveling on horseback and fighting dismounted.
The NCR has a considerable number of pre-war artillery pieces, including 75mm pack howitzers, 105mm howitzers, and 155mm howitzers. They also possess a number of post-war manufactured improvised mortars made from heavy pipe and firing a large 305mm shell. Most of the artillery is towed by truck, tractor, or draft animal, however, the NCR does have some self-propelled artillery, including M109 self-propelled howitzers, a few M270 MLRS, and larger numbers of small guns and improvised rocket batteries mounted on the back of trucks. The improvised rocket artillery used by the NCR are in the process of being replaced with the Standard Artillery Rocket system.
Mechanized and Armored DivisionsEdit
The Mechanized Divisions of the NCR are further subdivided into Mechanized infantry transported in trucks or pre-war infantry fighting vehicles and Armored Divisions which operate tanks and other heavy armored vehicles. The First Mechanized Infantry Division is the oldest NCR mechanized division, which, when founded, operated a number of pre-war trucks, many of them improvised from civilian vehicles, as well as a handful of pre-war tanks. As more more pre-war tanks were restored, and NCR industrial capacity reached the point where they could manufacture trucks in at least small batches, and machine parts for pre-war armored vehicles, two separate Armored Divisions, as well as three more Mechanized Divisions were founded. The early armored forces proved valuable in combating power armor in the NCR-Brotherhood of Steel War, though ultimately, the war was won simply by large numbers of lighter rifle infantry overrunning the smaller Brotherhood. More recently, after the second battle of Hoover Dam, NCR armor was deployed against Caesar's Legion, where they proved devastating against the Legion infantry, who possessed few anti-tank weapons - indeed, many Legion infantry lacked even firearms.
Supply Corps Edit
The Supply Corps supplies NCR Defence Force Bases, Army camps, and refugee camps with food, water, ammunition and other supplies. The Army supply corps has in its inventory a few hundred trucks, ranging from modified civilians pick-ups, to pre-war army trucks, to vehicles made in NCR factories and workshops from a combination of newly machined and pre-war parts. In spite of the increasing mechanization, pack brahmin, mules, and horses are still used for shorter supply runs and in more remote areas. The NCR Army Supply Corps works closely with the Air Force Supply Corps, often picking up supply drops from vertibirds of fixed-wing aircraft and shipping them to their final destinations.
First Recon Edit
The NCR Rangers Edit
Energy Weapons Operations Edit
The EWO personnel are personnel in the NCR Military certified in the operation power armor and directed energy weapons. EWO personnel are typically attached to NCR infantry and other units, where they use their weapons and power armor in support of regular operations. While many NCR power armor suits are non-functional, a significant number of suits with functional cores remain available, and are used for heavy squad support and assault missions, sometimes accompanied by armored vehicles.
Air Force Edit
The New California Republic Air Force, while significantly smaller than the Army, nonetheless have a considerable fleet of aircraft. Among the most numerous are the VB-02 Vertibird in both transport and gunship variants. While less common, the NCRAF also has a number operational fixed-wing aircraft, including around 50 Lockreed P-80 fighters, as well as smaller numbers of F-108 "Rapier"s, as well as a few bombers and heavy cargo aircraft, some converted from pre-war civilian airliners. NCR industry have even managed to produce "new" Vertibirds in small-scale manufacturing operations, though many of the parts were found from pre-war stocks. Some parts for both Vertibirds and fixed wing aircraft, as well bombs, rockets, and missiles, are even mass produced, albeit not to the same efficiency as before the war, and much of the ordnance, particularly missile guidance systems made mostly from pre-war parts, are less reliable than pre-war munitions. The NCR Air Force also uses a wide variety of pre-war civilian aircraft converted to military usage. These planes often have various roles from reconnoissance to fighter planes and even bombers, both light and heavy. These planes are mainly for defensive use, but many have been used for offensive operations.
The NCR Navy consists of over 100 vessels, however, the majority of them are small pre-war boats, such as barges, tugboats and fishing trawlers which have been equipped with armaments such as miniguns, gatling lasers, racks of infantry-held missiles, and small cannon. Smaller numbers of small pre-war craft such as patrol boats and landing craft are also in service, as well as some wood or metal hulled vessels assembled after the war in the NCR. Large ships consist mostly of a few container ships which have been armed with larger artillery pieces for shelling coastal positions, however, the Navy also has one pre-war guided missile frigate, their flagship, rechristened NCR Shady Sands. Another well-known ship in the NCR Navy is the "Vertibird Carrier" NCR Ursa Major, a pre-war container ship that survived the war, and was fitted with two helipads front and rear. The cargo hold acts as a hangar, with a modified on-board crane acting as "flight deck elevator. The NCR Navy also claims ownership of several pre-war warships which are not currently seaworthy, though some of are undergoing attempts at restoration.
The NCR Navy's primary role is to patrol NCR waters in the Pacific and the Gulf of California in order to defend against pirate attacks, as well as to seek and destroy pirate outposts, as well as to provide artillery support to land forces. For this reason, most vessels are armed with lighter weapons for destroying small boats typically used by post-war pirates. Larger guns and rocket batteries found on larger ships are intended primarily for bombarding targets ashore, typically raider outposts. The NCR Navy also has two pre-war Ballistic Missile submarines, the American Interference-class and the Chinese Yangzte-class submarines, but they no longer posses their nuclear armed ballistic missiles and are instead armed with torpedoes and anti-ship missiles. A few other pre-war subs have been found, but are inactive and are currently going under attempts at restoration for possible military usage.
NCR Marine CorpsEdit
Affiliated with the NCR Navy, although using Army-style ranks similar to the pre-war US Marine Corps, NCR Marine Corps are tasked with making seaborne assaults on land positions, as well as boarding hostile vessels. Their unit consists mostly of infantry, however, they do possess a few amphibious armored personnel carriers. While primarily a seaborne assault force, NCR Marines will sometimes fight alongside NCR Army personnel in more conventional ground operations, typically with nearby NCR Army and Marine reinforcing each other.

The 2281 Treaty of New Vegas stipulated the return of all Power Armor seized from the Brotherhood of Steel during the NCR-BOS war in exchange from the Brotherhood recognizing the NCR claim on all technological artifacts in the territory of the New California Republic. In any case, much of this power armor was non-functional, serving only as heavy, non-powered body armor. Despite this, some operational suits of power armor remain into NCR hand, including suits captured from the Enclave and from pre-war military bases. These suit are operated by specialist units in the NCR Defence Force. By the early 24th century, the NCR managed to begin manufacturing their own power armor units.
