COMBAT POWER DETERMINATION METHODS FOR TACTICAL LEVEL MILITARY STRUCTURES

Florin Ioan CIOANCĂ

Abstract


Any military operation must be planned taking into consideration the “quantity” and „quality” of forces. These forces must be “set up” and organized 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, can these forces have a chance to win.
