Over 20% British soldiers unfit for combat operations

22
Of 77 thousand. 647 soldiers of the British Armed Forces 17 thousand (22%) are unsuitable for participation in combat operations, the Daily Mail reports citing a representative of the country's Defense Ministry.




“Around 10, thousands of soldiers are considered limited to participate in deployment from a medical point of view, and 7 thousand are unsuitable for deployment in a combat zone in general. Thus, only 60 thousand of 77 thousand 647 suitable for military action. At the same time, officially the ground forces of Great Britain must have 82,5 thousand soldiers in their composition, ”the newspaper newspaper article cites. Look.

It is noted that today the British military "are taking part in 11 operations around the world, including in Afghanistan, Belize, Iraq, Canada, Kenya, the Falkland Islands and the island of Cyprus."

The number of modern ground forces of the UK is the lowest for the whole history kingdom Currently, they are inferior even to countries such as Spain and Poland. And all this is happening “against the backdrop of terrorist threats and growing aggression from Russia,” the newspaper writes.

The presence of soldiers in the status of limited participation in combat operations is temporary and is associated with their recovery. Huge efforts today are directed towards financing high-quality programs in the field of healthcare and rehabilitation, in order to fully help our soldiers,
A spokesman for the British military told reporters.

Earlier it was reported that the British Armed Forces have difficulty recruiting: out of 100, thousands of applicants, only 7,5, thousand have been accepted for military service. The reasons for refusal are different, among them there are inconsistencies in age, level of education or physical training.

    And if you count Europe and the United States with their tolerance, then there will probably be no one to serve in NATO.

        Daily Mail and the representative of the Ministry of Defense of Great Britain put in prison for treason: why are they spreading such data and provoking the Russians to attack? lol

          These are only calculated physical problems. And psychological, but moral in the event of a NATO clash with Russia or China. Yes, even with Iran.

      Just tolerance allows you to serve both men and women, and those who are in the middle (or have not yet decided who it is). But with health problems to see laughing

      If you face the truth, our current conscripts are no better and the percentage of unsuitable is approximately the same - there is no NVP in the school, DOSAAF is also not in proper form (it was ridiculously trained cat drivers for 2 months - in my time 6 months), urgent service for a year ... - the author does not see logs in his eye.

    Now it’s clear why the Englishwoman was so bustling about looking for support in the United States and Europe, from which she was leaving. There is no one to fight, but the warlike fervor is only growing.

    What kind of nonsense, what difficulties: army 66.tys. bayonets, then she definitely doesn’t need 100 thousand recruits. This only speaks of a considerable competition and thorough selection, because the states are full.

    - Over the past 3 years, the indicator of fitness for military service has a strong tendency to increase throughout the country. If we compare this indicator in different regions, the least recruits are exempted from service due to health reasons in the Southern Military District (according to the results of draft campaigns in 2016, the fitness indicator amounted to 87,3%). The strongest recruits are in the Stavropol Territory, Lipetsk and Penza Regions. The lowest expiration rate is in the Central Military District (73,9%). Most of the children receive exemption from service in the Magadan, Kaluga regions, in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District.
