Army membership planned to be increased to 10,000 by 2035

The Defence Ministry presented a long-term programme for the Slovenian Armed Forces (SAF) that envisages a different structure, organisation and equipping, an overhaul of the system of military education and training and a financial framework for realising these plans.

The number of SAF members is expected to gradually rise to 10,000 by 2035. Defence Ministry State Secretary Uroš Lampret said the key systemic measures in the programme through 2035 included more modern military capabilities, and adjusting the scope, structure and organisation of the SAF by creating a core of priority forces.
