CONFIGURING ARMORED BATTLEGROUPS IN THE LAND FORCES

  • Florian Ioan CIOANCĂ Battalion 405 ”Năsăud” Logistical Support

Abstract

The configuration of military forces in the land forces, especially battlegroups, is a solution for using only those components and microstructures of a military force, at a tactical level, that can be successful in military operations with minimal costs and losses. In modern military operations there is a need to use combat groups that have, as a result of their configuration, a military structure with mobility, firepower and high protection. These conditions can be met by armored vehicles on wheels or tracks, not necessarily tanks, organized in armored battlegroups. The configuration of armored battlegroups in the land forces must respect the principles of the use of military forces in military operations.

 

Keywords: armored battlegroups; configuring; mobility; firepower; protection; capabilities.
