Land Forces

The Land Forces have the capacity to protect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of South Sudan on land. They are  strong enough to deter any possible aggregation from across national borders. However, these borders are both long and at times insecure. It is therefore important that sufficient forces be deployed intelligently, and with sufficient speed, to be able to find, contain and destroy the threat.
