Croatia Defence and Security Report Q1 2014
BMI’s Croatia Defence & Security Report examines the military and security posture of this Balkan nation.
The report has been written to provide a comprehensive overview of the security challenges faced by Croatia both now, and in the future. Several facets of Croatia’s defence and security posture are examined by the report including: its defence procurement processes; military posture; and strategic risks. The report posits that despite the current financial challenges faced by the country, Croatia is broadly continuing on a path of military modernisation.
The Croatian armed forces are continuing the reform process that began in 2006. As of 2013, they are beyond the halfway point of this initiative, and have enacted some important reforms, not least of which is the professionalisation of the country’s armed forces. The army remains Croatia’s dominant means of power projection; the navy performs a coastal defence and logistics role, and the air force assists in logistics, alongside its traditional mission of defending the country’s airspace.
