After the Cardassian Union joined the Dominion the Cardassian Guard was absorbed into the Dominion military.
The Cardassian Guard organised its forces in a number of orders. They were made up of approximately between 500,000 to a million personnel. Orders were a unified command comprising of both space and ground based forces.
Orders could have between 50 to 1,000 starships under their command. These ships would be grouped into shodaro (fleets) whose commander would report to a supreme jagul or gul in the order. The ground forces were similarly organised with the various jhorgator's reporting to a supreme commanding arjagul in the order.
