The Army is broken down into legions for deployment. One of the things that makes the Imperial Army so effective in combat is the versatility of these legions to deal with different kinds of terrain and enemy. Although different legions may have varying expertise in certain areas, every legion will carry reconnaissance platoons, speeder bike platoons, heavy weapons squads, sharpshooters, demolitions, medics, engineers, and not to mention a wide range of supporting artillery. Some legions also specialize in different kinds of deployment (some are deployed completely within the fleets as marine troops, others are mechanized or armoured legions, with military vehicles as their main focus.
In the standing army there are 500 legions ready for deployment in combat, consisting of 8,750,000 personnel, with a huge amount (literally millions more) of trained reserve personnel who could be called up if they are required.
