The

Army of the Republic of Sonora

"Our journey to glorious nationhood was begun with the courage and righteousness born in the hearts of all free men. This sentiment 'courage, translated into action' shall forever be the motto of the Armies of the Republic."

Cavalry

Cavalry in Sonora are organized in regiments of 6 100-man troops. Lanceros are locally raised regiments of vaqueros ordered the same as the regulars regiments of six 100-man troops. Often, both regular and lancero regiments are split into flying columns of two to four troops for specific tasks.

Artillery

Artillery is nominally organized into three battery brigades consisting of three six-gun light field artillery sections and one light galloper pom-pom section. In practice the pom-poms were almost always seconded to the cavalry regiments and the field sections distributed amongst the infantry.

The Mechanical Regiments

sentinel

In keeping with Sonoran policies endeavoring to use locally produced materiel whenever possible, Sonoran land ironclads and contraptions tend to be simple and robust. Mechanical Regiments are organized with one squadron of three ironclads and three squadrons of 6 armored cars each.
