The army is getting reorganized and rearmed. The principal unit of employment is now the battalion, usually manned by volunteer ("contract") soldiers. The emphasis is on well trained and equipped troops. This year, the army is receiving 40 T-90 tanks and, 90 BTR 90 and 34 BMP 3 infantry vehicles. New radios and other equipment are reaching the troops in large quantities, or replace Cold War era stuff. Personnel strength is declining. Currently there are 1,207,000 troops in service, but by the end of next year, there will be only 1.1 million and, by the end of 2008 there will be only a million.
