The Somali National Army was, up until 1991, made up of the army, navy, air force, and air defense command. The Somali Government's demise led to the de facto dissolution of the national armed forces. Efforts by the Transitional Federal Government (TFG) to re-establish a regular armed force under the TFG Ministry of Defense have made progress so far.
Historical Organization
The army was organised into 12 divisions which controlled all of the following:
- 4 tank brigades
- 45 mechanized and infantry brigades
