COMBAT POWER DETERMINATION METHODS FOR TACTICAL LEVEL MILITARY STRUCTURES
Any military operation must be planned taking into consideration ”quantity” and ”quality” of forces. These forces must
be ”set up” and organised and used in operations according to their ”combat power” at the specified place and time. Only if
there is a correct analysis and “determination” of combat power these forces can have a chance to win.
