The Armenian Army uses Russian-built Mosin-Nagant M1895 three-band rifles (7.62x54R) and Nagant pistols. Many Turkish and German-made Mauser rifles (8x57mm) have found a way into the Armenian arsenals, as have a thousand-odd Atlantean-made PO Rifles (Export Model of 1916, 7.62x54R) via Russia. Machine guns are Russian-manufactured Degtyarev DP type machine guns, in 7.62x54R.

Artillery is all Russian-manufactured or pre-1918 German (via Turkish) surplus.

No tanks.

Cavalry is equipped with Mosin-Nagant carbines, Nagant pistols, sabers, and lances.

The Fedayee (Freedom Fighters) or Kamavor (Volunteers) are Armenia's militia reserve. They are best known for their guerrilla tactics during the Great War, using any weapons that came to hand. The Armenian government makes an effort to organize the Fedayee but has had varying amounts of success.

Notes: Armenia has a treaty with Russia. In case of war, Armenia presumes that Russia will be helping them.
