The nature of civil and military relations has always hanged on a balance considering the latter has the arms that when used to project power and influence may suppress the larger civilian populace.

See example:

People are "hanged" when they are executed. In this case, you would use "hung". I would also suggest splitting the sentences:

 

The nature of civil and military relations has always hung in balance. The latter has the arms, which they may use to intimidate the government and suppress the civilian populace.

Unclear. Do we want to say to hang in the balance?
