LAND FORCES IN THE FUTURE OPERATIONAL ENVIRONMENT
Abstract: The complexity of the operational environment generated by new risks and threats makes military structures to seek new ways of dealing with conflict in the future. Although the analysis indicates that the possibility of a traditional interstate conflict for Romania appears to be minimal, despite the new conflicts that occurred near the borders of our country, state-versus-state conflicts are still possible worldwide. However, future conflicts will most likely continue to have a hybrid character and manifest through domestic violence, terrorism, insurgency and criminality, as well as through land battle. To the challenges identified above, ground forces will have to develop the conceptual, organizational and human dimensions.
