Abstract:

Since joining NATO in 1999, Poland has made significant progress in modernizing its armed forces. This modernization effort has been characterized by the gradual retirement of obsolete Soviet-era equipment, a reduction in active duty military personnel, and an increase in the number of forces that can be deployed beyond Polands borders. Poland has a continuing interest in transforming its military into one that can more effectively participate in NATO collective defense operations as well as in EU Operations. This SRP describes challenges related to logistic support for the Polish Armed Forces when they are participating in NATO missions and European Union EU Crisis Management Operations CMOs in the context of modernizing their forces into a fully professional military organization.
