The challenges of multinational land operations are to integrate various force contributions that are different in organization, capability, and size. This situation creates problems for smaller nations with limited ability to provide larger scaleMoreThe challenges of multinational land operations are to integrate various force contributions that are different in organization, capability, and size. This situation creates problems for smaller nations with limited ability to provide larger scale force contributions. The experiences from the case studies point towards several problem areas but they also indicate areas where relatively smaller scale forces can provide meaningful contributions. This thesis concludes that smaller nations should take advantage of distinctive national capabilities and prioritize responsive small-scale niche capabilities that are organized, equipped, and trained for rapid integration in multinational formations. Dependent of the mission, integration can be done in two ways: either direct integration to the multinational land force structure or indirectly through bilateral or multinational established medium-sized forces, which in turn can be integrated in a multinational formation.
