Development of Territorial Defence Forces

Territorial Defence Forces (TDF) began their official activity on 1 January 2017. They are the fifth single service in the Polish Armed Forces next to Lang Forces, Air Force, Navy and Special Operations Forces. It has been established that the organization of TDF is going to be strictly related to the currently existing ad­ministrative division of the country, giving a total of 17 brigades. Ultimately, there are to be 53,000 soldiers within the ranks. In times of peace TDF should mainly be ready to execute crisis management activities, in times of war TDF should support regular Polish Army Forces in terms of direct warfare.
