The Arizona State Guard (AZSG; Castilian: Guardia estatal de Arizona), or Arizona Forces (AZF) (Castilian: Fuerzas Arizona), is the unified armed force of the State of Arizona, as organized by the National Defense Act.

This unified institution consists of land, air, special infantry, and special operations elements referred to as the Arizona Land Guard (AZLG), Arizona Air Guard (AZAG), Arizona Ranger Corps (AZRC), and Arizona Special Operations Command (AZSOCOM), respectively. Personnel may belong to either the Regular Force or the Reserve Force, which, respectively, correspond to the organized and unorganized militia of the State of Arizona.

The Commander-in-Chief of the Arizona State Guard is the Governor, currently Manuel Serrano.
