About Land Force

The Land Force has the capacity to protect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Uganda on land. They are strong enough to deter any possible aggregation from across national borders.

However, these borders are both long and at times insecure. It is therefore important that a sufficient force be deployed intelligently, and with sufficient speed, to be able to find, contain and destroy the threat.

The Land Force is comprised of the Marine, Artillery, Infantry and Armoured Brigade
