The Armed Forces of Davostan, officially the Davostani Defense Forces (Davostani: Dovske Forsvarsstyrker; Kivonian: Dovska Försvarsstyrkorna, abbreviated DDF) are the unified defensive and offensive forces of Davostan. The DDF was founded in 4790 after the Hutorian occupation formally ended in Davostan. The precursor to the DDF is the Third Republican Forces of the Third Kivonian Republic.

The Davostani Special Forces are formed into the Internal Troops of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Foreign Operative Forces (Davostani: Udenlandske Operative Styrker; Kivonian: Utländska Operativa Styrkorna), both are counted as a formal fourth branch but operated independently of the traditional command structure due to their secretive natures. There is also the Davostani Military Police (Davostani: Dovske Militærpolitiet; Kivonian: Dovska Miilitärpolisen).
