The new guiding principles for military equipment supply , together with certain other measures to make the organisation more effective and rational, will contribute to freeing up funds for operational activities. In this way, changes in military equipment supply can be said to help increase defence capability.
The operational organisation will be supplied with appropriate, good quality military equipment of sufficient volume, relative to stated requirements and needs. As far as possible, existing equipment will be maintained, and when needed, renewed and upgraded. Where new equipment needs to be procured, ready-developed and proven equipment that is available on the market will primarily be considered. Weapons development should be conducted when needs cannot otherwise be met.
