* The ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' equivalent is the PDF (Planetary Defense Forces). Their quality is variable: usually they're a whoever the conscripters could catch but if the planet was recently conquered they may be some of the Imperial Guard's most experienced veterans. Nonetheless, they are considered as underequipped and far less competent by the Imperial Guard. We repeat: the ''Imperial Guard'', ButtMonkey CannonFodder extraordinaire, believes the PDF to be beneath them.

This is usually for the straightforward reason that the best PDF troopers get inducted into the Guard.

to:

* After the Islamic State captured most of northern Iraq in 2014 and the Iraqi Army collapsed, then-Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki signed the creation of one of these to compensate for the loss of their losses, creating the ''Popular Mobilisation Units''. By all accounts, they were able to halt the group's advance until the Army recovered and the two are currently working alongside to kick the group out of Iraq.
* Following the start of the Syrian Civil War, the Syrian Government decided to arm trusted local communities (usually minorities such as Druze and Christians) to focus Syrian Army (which was suffering massive manpower shortages at the time) on more important theaters. The implication was that these communities were not as loyal or ideologically invested in the Ba'ath Party [[EnemyMine but still did not wish to see]] the (mostly Islamist) rebels win. By 2013, they were amalgamated into the ''National Defence Forces'' alongside [[TheDreaded the Shabiha]] to form an organised response. As of 2016, they field as many fighters (albeit part-time) as the Syrian Army.
