Romania Armed Services
Sources: The Library of Congress Country Studies; CIA World Factbook
Professional officers have stressed that, despite the emphasis placed on Romania's irregular or paramilitary units, only the traditional armed services are trained and equipped to fulfill the full range of military missions. In 1989 the ground forces remained the largest, most important, and most influential armed service. However, the air and naval forces had steadily developed and increased in importance to Romania's military strategy during the preceding two decades.
