The combat capability of units is assessed using different methodologies. NATO primarily uses the CREVAL (Combat Readiness Evaluation) method, within the framework of which assessment is carried out during combat training exercises.
The exact combat readiness rating of a unit is a state secret. It is possible, however, to present some examples regarding progress involving combat readiness.
The National Defence Development Plan 2017–2026 foresees that by 2026 the 1st Infantry Brigade will have been developed into a mechanized infantry brigade and the 2nd Infantry Brigade will have been developed into a combat capable motorized light infantry brigade. The country’s defence structure will also grow by more than 10 light infantry companies and a thousand combatants, and the upgrading of the Defence League’s infrastructure – to ensure a high level of training for volunteers – will continue.
