The South African Army is the army of South Africa, first formed after the Union of South Africa was created in 1910.
The South African military evolved within the tradition of frontier warfare fought by Boer Commando (militia) forces, reinforced by the Afrikaners' historical distrust of large standing armies.
The Army is composed of roughly 40,100 regular uniformed personnel, augmented by 12,300 reserve force personnel.
The rank/age structure of the army, which deteriorated desperately during the 1990s, is greatly improving through the Military Skills Development (MSDS) voluntary national service system.
