The Union uses a brigade as the largest operation unit, primarily for the army and navy forces. The UPA currently has 30 tank, mechanized and mountain infantry brigades and 2 airborne brigades. The brigade combat system was developed by the Barmenistani General Headquarters for the UPA to be able to better counter threats throughout the Union as well as remain flexible.
