Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

Hello everyone!

I'm going to publice some information about Latvian NAF, police and other services uniforms, ranks etc.

In general: Latvia was an independece state between world wars (1918-1940) and after collapse of USSR (1991) until today. Since 2004 Latvia is member of EU and NATO.

I'm going start post with guard of honour unit.

In Nathional armed forces (NAF) we have Staff batalion (SBn) with company of guards of honour. SBn is only one unit wich restored from interwar times (1918-1940). The unit was established in 1919.



Colour of shoulders, insignia ir white-blue




After the restore of independence in 1991, Latvia was extremly poor country. GDP was approximataly 5-6 billions of USD (for example, in 1995 Netherlands GDP was ~450 billions USD). First uniforms and equipment of Defence forcees was insuffiecent.

Nowadays the situation is much better.

Nice.
We had a few teams from Latvia on our Dutch army annual TMPT meeting.
Also spoke with some men last september in Dusseldorf shooting contest in Germany.

Motivated men!
