When the Soviets took over the country and turned Romania into a communist state, the army was reorganized into a WarsawPact style army. However, Nicolae Ceaucescu was wary of Soviet domination and tried to distance his country from the Soviet Union without leaving the WarsawPact, in a matter comparable to France and NATO; France remained part of NATO even if [[UsefulNotes/GaulsWithGrenades its military]] was now under full French command. At one point, Romania had a thriving arms industry, and even built ground attack planes in collaboration with Yugoslavia, jet trainers on it's own, tanks, APCs, IFVs, naval vessels and the Romanian versions of the ubiquitous AK-47 and RPG.

* The Romanian Army plays an important part in the ''ComicBook/TwoThousandAD'' strip ''ComicBook/FiendsOfTheEasternFront''. Most members of the Romanian unit accompanying the German Wehrmacht soldiers in their invasion of the Soviet Union [[WeirdHistoricalWar turn out to be vampires]], except for [[TheRenfield their one human servant]].

The IAR 80, the Romanian fighter plane that served in WWII, was at the time the fastest fighter plane in history. It was beaten (much) later by the Messerschmitt 109. It was comparable to the Hawker Hurricane and the Messerschmitt 109. The CrowningMomentOfAwesome for the designers was that, unlike most planes of the time, which had the guns on the wings, the IAR 80 had it behind its propeller, a piece of mostly discarded WorldWarI technology.

In WorldWarII, Romania was an Axis member. While many of the leaders joined the Axis for ideological reasons, they had reservations as: they were on the same side as Hungary, and they had to give up lands with a majority Hungarian population everything between them and the Hungarian border.

During the first phase of WorldWarII, the Romanian armed forces achieved good results despite many hardships. The country's economy was never on a full war footing, not even comparable to [[UsefulNotes/NaziGermany Germany]]'s (due to the loss of contact with traditional trade partners, it relied mostly on deliveries of oil and raw materials to Germany, in exchange for military technology and industrial machinery).

Some of the spectacular victories were at Rovine (1395), when Wallachian voivode Mircea the Elder defeated Bayezid, Vaslui (1475), when Stephen the Great of Moldavia defeated Ottoman sultan Mehmed II, and Călugăreni, when [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Michael the Brave]] and his army of mercenaries defeated the Ottomans, again (seeing a pattern forming here). Other neighbors with imperial aspirations that Romanians had to defend against included the Hungarians, defeated at the battle of Posada in 1330 by Basarab I, and the Poles defeated decisively at the battle of Cosmin forest in 1497 by Stephen the Great (he was a very busy voievod, ruled for 47 years and had at least a major battle per year. He built a monastery for every victory in his country and the amount of monasteries in Bucovina and North Moldavia should tell something about just how big a {{Badass}} WarriorPrince he was).
