The Royal Leassau Army is the land forces element of the military of the Lessau.

The Royal Lessau Army was raised on April 19th,1839 however, its origins date back to 1470, when the so-called Lessaun Militia was raised. It fought during the 80 Year Wars, Gordic Revolution, the Sidonia War of Independence, Latianburg war, and served with NSTO.

Since 1980, the army has deployed to the Atiland from 2001 and the War in Latianburg, as well as a number of PKFU peacekeeping deployments, notably with PKFUIF in Imperial Fandom and PKFU in Fortuna.

2 of 6 Leassuan Army Brigades are now under Kasmiyland Command. In 2016 the 124th Airmobile Brigade, was integrated into the Gordic Rapid Respond Force, while the 79th Mechanized Brigade began integration into the 1st Kasmiy Division in 2018, with the intention that it is fully part of the Gordic Council formation by the end of 2019. The Kasmiy-Leassau military cooperation are seen as an example for setting up a Gondwana defense union.
