The Skrull armies are the ground forces of the Skrull Empire. Which is tasked with seizing and occupying worlds, as well as the defense of Skrull worlds from invaders and the liberation of occupied Skrull worlds. Skrull ground forces are transported to alien worlds by the Skrull Armada. The supreme commander of the armies is the emperor (or empress) of the Skrull Empire. When the Skrull empire is fragmented, the various armies are controlled by the warlords.
Skrull armies have a wide variety of ground vehicles and air support craft, armed with directed energy weapons. Which include anti-gravity vehicles, tracked vehicles, wheeled vehicles, bipedal and multi-legged mecha, and thrust engine air vehicles. It is supported by various types of artillery, including gun platforms, beam cannon emplacements, anti-aircraft artillery, and ground-to-space cannons.They possess armored vehicles that are two stories high and dozens of ft long and multi-story tall mecha. Weapon systems which are capable of killing Terran gods (e.g. the Celtic goddess, the Lady of the Lake). It is likely that they also have aquatic vessels or maritime naval support, and guided weapons (e.g. missiles).
Soldiers are armed with a variety of infantry-type weapons, including sidearms, rifles, gatling-type multi-barrel man-portable guns, and large-caliber man-portable cannons. Officers and a minority of the combat units (likely elite) may be protected by heavy armor which may be outfitted with helmets equipped with sensors, optics, etc. Soldiers also receive training in hand-to-hand combat and in the use of melee weapons (e.g. polearms and swords).
During the attempted Skrull conquest of Earth by Queen Veranke, a massive Skrull army was deployed on Earth, large enough to occupy the planet. In the battle of San Francisco, two whole divisions were deployed against the X-Men. Skrull armies fought in the defense of Skrull worlds during the Builders War and later participated in the liberation of those worlds occupied by the Builders.
It is not clear if the Skrull Army is an independent armed service within the Skrull military or if it is a branch of the Skrull Armada. During the Skrull invasion of Earth, it appeared to be subordinate to the fleet commanders.
