It wis the Naitional Revolutionary Airmy afore bein renamed as the Republic o Cheenae Airmed Forces in 1947 due tae the implementation o the newly promulgatit Constitution o the Republic o Cheenae (ROC).[2]

Till the 1970s, the militar's primar mission wis tae retak mainland Cheenae frae the communist Fowkrepublic o Cheenae (PRC) throu the Project Naitional Glory.[3] The militar's current foremaist mission is the defence o the islands o Taiwan, Penghu, Kinmen, Matsu, an ither ROC's islands against a possible militar invasion bi the Fowk's Leeberation Airmy o the Fowkrepublic o Cheenae (PRC), that is seen as the predominant threit tae the Republic o Cheenae (ROC)[4][5] in the ongaein dispute ower the poleetical status o Taiwan.
