The Selucian Army (Selucian: Exercitus Selucianus) is the unified land combat force of the Armed Forces of Selucia. In the past the core unit of the land forces were the Legions, but in time a modern organization was adopted, grouping legions into divisions (divisiones) and armies (exercitus), while legions continue to exist as the equivalent of brigades in other land forces, remaining the main organizational unit of the land forces.

Selucia's army units are divided in three classes. Praetorian Guards (Praetoriani), the regular field units (Exercitus) and the provincial units (Auxilia). The soldiers of the Legions are very well trained and equipped and depending on their post they have to serve between 5 and 40 years. Those of the Auxilia have to serve 25 years and their commanders come from the Legions. One may rank the Auxilia as "not first line" troops but they also are not 2nd line ones. The Praetorian Guards are the best trained and equipped. While the serving duties are the same of those of the Legions their main focus is the protection of the Capital, Consuls, and Senate. Once deployed into the front lines they are often able to decide the fate of a battle. If there is a state visit they are those who are showing the colours.
