The Zairean Armed Forces (French: Forces Armées Zaïroises (FAZ)) is the state organization responsible for defending Zaire.

The majority of the FAZ members are land forces, but it also has a small air force and an even smaller navy. Together the three services may number between 144,000 and 159,000 personnel. In addition, there is a presidential force called the Republican Guard, but it and the National Zairean Police (PNZ) are not part of the Armed Forces.
