Montenegro Military
 
 
 

General

The Armed Forces of the Republic of Montenegro (Vojska Crne Gore) consists of an army, navy and air force. Conscription was abolished in 2006; the military is now a fully professional standing army.

The military currently maintains a force of 2,500 active duty members. The bulk of its equipment and forces were inherited from the armed forces of the State Union of Serbia and Montenegro; as Montenegro contained the entire coastline of the former union, it retained practically the entire naval force.

Montenegro is a member of NATO's Partnership for Peace program and is an official candidate for full membership in the alliance. Montenegro applied for a Membership Action Plan on 5 November 2008, which was granted in December 2009. Montenegro is also a member of Adriatic Charter.
