ASPECTS REGARDING THE DEFENSIVE OPERATIONS OF THE MECHANIZED (INFANTRY) BRIGADE IN THE JOINT CONTEXT
Keywords:: defensive; joint operations; multinational; maneuver; command and control.
Throughout history, military action has undergone a permanent process of evolution and diversification, both in terms of scope and with respect to spatial, temporal and material dimensions. The trend that is becoming more and more pronounced is that all operations, including defence, will have a common goal, because they can no longer be carried out in a single environment, but both in the physical environment (land, air, naval, cosmic), as well as in the virtual environment (electromagnetic - cybernetic). At the same time, the need for flexibility in preparing and conducting operations against an opponent with fluctuating combat potential highlights the need to form joint task forces. Flexibility implies that this force, adopting a certain modular organization, be able to carry out operations specific to armed struggle, when such operations are required and also the same force, but in another modular organization, to be able to, in -an optimal time, to perform stability and support operations.
