The Algerie Fowk's Natiional Airmed Forces (Armée nationale populaire) is the airmed forces o the Fowkdemocratic Republic o Algerie. Algerie haes a lairge militar tae coonter foreign an domestic threats. It is the direct successor o the Armée de Libération Nationale (ALN), the airmed weeng o the naitionalist Naitional Liberation Front, which fought French colonial rule during the Algerie War o Unthirldom (1954-1962).

The Fowk’s Naitional Airmy include grund forces, the Algerie Air Force, the Navy (the Marine de la République Algérienne), an the Algerie Air Defence Force.[7] The antecedents o the airmy were the conventional militar units formed in Morocco an Tunisie during the war o unthirldom frae Fraunce. Except for clashes wi Morocco in 1963 and 1976, the airmed forces hae nae been involved in hostilities against a foreign pouer. Thair combat capabeelities in defence o the kintra haes thus remained untestit, houaniver the Algerie militar is arguably recognisit tae be amang ane o the maist professional an well-trained militars in baith Africae an the Arab warld.
