The UNSC Army is the primary terrestrial warfare branch of the United Nations Space Command Defense Force under the Unified Ground Command. It is largely responsible for planetary defense and garrison, though certain Army elements also engage in expeditionary warfare. The service was merged with the UNSC Marine Corps as a unified ground warfare component following the conclusion of the Human-Covenant War, due largely to cripplingly heavy casualties sustained by both branches over the course of conflict and the post-war shift from military footing to reconstruction.
