comment How would Army units be deployed efficiently by a spacefaring civilization against multiple threats?
I'm sorry, but navies, even space navies, cannot seize lands. A space navy can isolate a planet or star system. It cannot, however, seize the planets in usable condition. Marines or an army is needed for that. As for using kinetic or nuclear warheads against a planetary surface, that will be banned in my universe.

Thanks. I'm still world building, but hope to get the nasty stuff out of my brain and onto paper before too long.

@Jasper, if you mean how Heinlein uses capsules to get to the planet surface, that doesn't make sense for armored personnel carriers, tanks and artillery. I'm actually more interested in strategic deployment, not the actual assault.
