1 Afghanistan's on Sat Feb 19, 2011 12:34 pm

Afghanistan's army was first organized in 1880 with British support, during Emir Abdur Rahman Khan's reign.[4][5] Prior to 1880, the national army was composed of private militia forces belonging to different regional commanders, as well as a special army force under the ruler of the country.[6][7][8][9] During World War I and World War II, the Afghan army was supplied by Germany but Afghanistan remained a neutral state. From the 1960s to the early 1990s, the army of Afghanistan was trained and equipped by the Soviet Union. By 1992, the national army fragmented into regional militias under local warlords. This was followed by the Taliban government in the mid 1990s, which had their own militia-style forces.

The Afghan National Army (ANA) is a service branch of the military of Afghanistan, which is currently trained by the coalition forces to ultimately take the role in land-based military operations in Afghanistan. As of January 2011, the Afghan National Army is divided into seven regional Corps and consists of around 270,000 active troops.[1] The Afghan Ministry of Defense is expanding the ANA to about 305,600 troops by 2014, a move supported and funded primarily by the United States Department of Defense.[2] There were more than 4,000 American military trainers in late 2009 and additional numbers from other NATO states, providing advanced warfare training to the ANA.[3]
