Swtore says that the early Kotor period was actually fairly weak militarily due to an overreliance on the Jedi. After Kotor they established a massive military that could stand on it's own. In fact, it states that before the Jedi Civil War, most of the Republics military was a loose collection of fleets from each individual member planet. And that they possessed very few infantry that had shitty equipment.
This was why the Mandalorian's and Revan's unified forces crushed the Republic so easily.

The 1000 years after the seventh battle of Ruusan.

what's so special about the second battle?
Shadilay my brothers and sisters. With any luck we will throw off the shackles of normie oppression. We have nothing to lose but our chains! Praise Kek!
THE MOTTO IS "IN KEK WE TRUST"
The "Golden Age of the Republic" is probably the golden age of the Republic, yes?
Not sure what there is to discuss really.
"The Daemon lied with every breath. It could not help itself but to deceive and dismay, to riddle and ruin. The more we conversed, the closer I drew to one singularly ineluctable fact: I would gain no wisdom here."
Maybe I missed something, but what puts the OR military over other ones? Last I checked, the Republic military was pretty much in shambles...or well least up till TOR but even there I don't think it's that far and above greater than any other. Infact even still you have later eras having better tech, a wider variety of troops, vehicles and so on.

I know, but you can't exactly override the creator's intent. To be fair, they only referred to the KotOR Jedi's militaristic superiority, whereas Lucas seemed to refer to the Order just being in its overall prime (though he did reference swordfighting, so eh).
Heck, the *new* Republic arguably had one of the stronger militaries. An indecisive government once the Empire was gone, but a pretty good-sized force that had experience against a peer foe, and had some sweet capital ships and fighters.
