The '''DOOP Army''', also known sometimes as the '''Earth Army''', is the protector of all planets that are members of the [[DOOP]] such as [[Earth]]. The Army is lead by legendary 25 Star General, [[Zapp Brannigan]] and is usually terrible in combat when led by him. They have suffered two major defeats at the hands of the [[Omicronians]] and the [[Decapodians]]. Winning their battles and/or wars is usually accompanied by a great loss of the DOOP soldiers. The Army doesn't seem to care about [[Humans|human]] life sending wave after wave of men to their deaths in often fruitless and/or arguably credible tactical decisions. Any man can sign up for the Army and drop out at any time unless War is declared but women are forbidden to join up as the men were distracted by them. [[Robots]] of earth are implanted with a Patriotism Chip, which in case of emergencies, can be activated forcing them to often unwillingly serve the DOOP Military. [[#Army Members|Soldiers of the DOOP]] wear green uniforms whilst in battle on ground and wear red uniforms similar to Zapp and [[Kif Kroker|Kif]]'s whilst on the [[Nimbus]] or fighting in space. The primary assault weapon used for ground troops is a type of laser gun requiring a Jack In The Box style charging first. The troops also get a 5% discount in stores. The Commander of the Army, Zapp Brannigan, has access to Earth's missiles and weapons ready to be used during invasion. It is likely the restriction on women in the army has been dropped as two are seen on board the Nimbus during [[The Anti-Tentacle Blockade of Earth|the anti-tentacle blockade of Earth]]. Their motto is "Join the Army, ''What Are You Chicken?''"

Episode

The DOOP Army (sometimes known as the Earth Army) is the protector of all members of the Democratic Order of Planets, such as Earth. Its motto is "Join the Army, What Are You Chicken?". The Army is often led by legendary 25 Star General Zapp Brannigan and doesn't seem to care about human life, sending wave after wave of its troops to their deaths in often fruitless and/or arguably credible tactical decisions.

Troops

Men can sign up and drop out at any time, unless, of course, war is declared. Women, however, were forbidden to join the Army before 3008, as they had been known to distract male soldiers in the service. It is likely this restriction has been dropped, though, as two female soldiers are seen on board the Nimbus during the anti-tentacle blockade of Earth. Earthican Robots are implanted with a Patriotism Chip, which, in case of emergencies, can be activated, forcing them to serve the DOOP Military. The DOOP Army Soldiers wear green uniforms whilst battling on ground, and red uniforms (similar to those of Zapp and Kif Kroker) whilst fighting in space. The troops also get a 5% discount in stores.

Weapons

The primary assault weapon used for ground troops is a type of laser gun requiring a Jack-In-The-Box charging. The Commander of the Army, Zapp Brannigan, has access to Earth's missiles and other weapons ready to be used during an invasion. The flagship Nimbus is another powerful resource.

Members

There are waves and waves of DOOP army members, but these few have played more important roles.

Assets

The DOOP Army holds various technological instruments it can use in the course of a war, assets

Opponents
