The military strength consisted fully of professional soldiers. The army was divided into six main military divisions: Infantry, Cavalry, Artillery, Medical, Engineering and logistical support. The regular military force was backed up and supported by a further 52,000 well-trained and equipped professional-grade irregulars. In addition, a large reservoir of feudal and militia forces was available. Artillery division in 1838 had 188 heavy artillery guns. The army at the time was regarded as the premier fighting force of Asia.
The Sikh Army was strongly Punjabi with a predominantly Sikh cadre  but also had a significant multi-religious component made up from other parts of the Punjabi people: different religious backgrounds: Muslim, Hindu and different tribal backgrounds: Pashtuns, Dogras, Khatris, Jatts, Ramgarhias, Nepalis and European mercenaries. A promotion to a higher military rank was based on military skill, not hereditary background, so was a classic meritocracy. Sikhs formed the bulk of the Sikh Empire's army.
The Cavalry was divided into three divisions:
- Regular Cavalry
- Ghorchara Fauj Cavalry
- Jagirdari Cavalry
- Maharaja Ranjit Singh's Generals
- Sikh Confederacy
- Punjab Chiefs
