Croatia will need this trend of increased defence spending if it is to make good its intentions regarding the modernisation of its armed forces and the overhaul of the equipment which it maintains in service.
Croatia maintains three armed forces, namely the army, navy and air force, and does not have a distinct paramilitary force or gendarmerie body responsible for dealing with public order. In 2001 the country had a combined armed forces size of 68,300 personnel, a figure which had fallen to 21,600 by 2011.
