Combat Readiness

 

of armed forces (troops), a condition which defines the degree of preparedness of each branch of armed forces (troops) to carry out the combat missions assigned to it. The presence of weapons of mass destruction in army arsenals and the possibility of their use on a surprise basis and in mass make high requirements as to the combat readiness of armed forces (troops). Armed forces should be capable of beginning active combat operations at any time on land, at sea, and in the air. For this reason, contemporary armies provide that troops will be maintained in constant (everyday) combat readiness. Constant combat readiness is ensured if troops are kept at required staff strength, supplied with armament, matériel, and stocks of supplies, and have a high state of training.
