It was created after the Lyoan Revolution in 1967 when the democratic revolutionaries restructured the Royal Lyoan Armed Forces. The LNDF did not engage in any major conflicts besides minor insurrections until the Lyoan Civil War, when it was virtually destroyed. The majority of the LNDF is made up of land forces, but a navy exists as well as a small air force.
