Czech Republic Military
 
 
 

The Army of the Czech Republic (Armáda České Republiky) comprise the military, air forces and support units. After joining NATO on March 12, 1999, the Czech Republic is completing a major overhaul of the extensive Czechoslovak Armed Forces (about 200,000) which until 1989 formed one of the pillars of the Warsaw Pact military alliance. Czech forces have been gradually downsized from 90,000 in 1993 to 63,601 in 1999 to 35,000 in 2005 and at the same time modernized and reoriented toward a defensive posture. In 2004 the army transformed into a fully professional organization and compulsory military service was abolished.
