The Armed Forces marches on Food, Fuel,

..............Munitions, and Supplies.

In a single offensive, just the Air Support bombing, Artillery Fire Support - could mean the use of up to 1T of munition per soldier in the field. Then you have food, water, supplies to keep soldiers in comfort while vehicles could use immense amount of fuel in intensive action. Replacement of lost equipment, tanks, armour vehicle, artillery pieces, jeeps, trucks is vital to maintain the momentum of the offensive.

The Armed Forces logistics is immensely important.

The Specialist, the vital "secret ingredient"

........in the Big Power Armed Forces.

Yes, the repairman, tinkerer.
Weapons, equipment, vehicles, even missiles needs to have such "tinkerers" to ensure "tip top" working state.
With qualified "Specialist", all kind of equipment is kept at maximum performance with minimum downtime.
This is critical for a functioning army.

Some states, like the United State Armed Forces "subcontract" such duties to independent Contractors, Small family enterprises and big juicy contracts to corrupt politician-business linked corporations.
(Many third world states, or even second rate states has many weapon systems "non functional", even for simple equipment like trucks, jeeps maybe even computers, radio does not work)

Cheerios!

Strange as it seems, it's the CHEFS as

..........well as the "logistics boys" that keeps the army, navy, air force active and deadly.

Food, like Fuel, Ammunition, and Asset replacements are vital. Everyday, a soldier consumes some 1.6 - 2.0 kg of food. In a "expeditionary force" of 150,000 man - it works out to 300,000kg of food every single day. (or some 30 TEU in food supply space).

Without food, the soldier has to "scavenge" and this will be highly unpopular with the "Citizen" being affected. In many battle situation, "scorch earth" policy means, no available local food supply for the invading forces.

Cheerios!

The Military ans Strategic Material Depot are vital installations

..........and we have plenty of such.

Bunkered depot, Forward depot, Strategic depot are all vital store of critical parts, munitions, fuel, materials. Strategic crude oil bunkering is common practise globally, and in big powers up to 180days of storage is common. Grain storage for up to 6 months is also practised.

The storage capacity allow "supplies" to the front lines can be sustained before factories, rationing allows the civil industry transform to "War Production".

Cheerios!
