The Land Force is one of the three services comprising the RDF. It evolved from the RPA and integrated elements of the EX-FAR. The Land Force is a pivot service to the RDF operational effectiveness.

The Land Force is structured and designed to accomplish operations on its own and in conjunction with the Rwanda Air Force. It also develops and maintains capacity to operate in special environments.
