It was very large empire, so was its military.

Mauryan army was not just large in size, but its military strategies were pretty brilliant in its time, which helped Chandragupta Maurya conquer such vast expanse of territories.
Chandragupta Maurya’s army:-
6,00,000 Infantry
30,000 Cavalry
~8,000 War Chariots
9,000 War Elephants

The total number of soldiers of Chandragupta Maurya’s army counts somewhere near 6,90,000!
