A long time ago, the army fought in the Guild Wars against the other human kingdoms of Tyria: Kryta and Orr. But lately (especially since the Searing) the Charr have taken over as the main enemy of Ascalon.
Soldiers typically wear a red armor (as shown to the right) and wield various weapons. Some members of the Ascalon Vanguard wear dark grey armor.
