    Few Spanish insignias

    The Spanish Army has existed continuously since the reign of King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella (late 15th century). Until 1965 the Spanish Army was composed of “classical” regiments and divisions. In 1965 a reorganization was undertaken that divided Army forces in Intervention and Operational Defense formations adopting the brigade as the main component of Divisions. Since 1994 Divisions were abolished and brigades were adopted as the highest level formation, but when Spain became part of Eurocorps, the decision was taken to maintain the Brunete division updating it with a third mechanized brigade. In the Spanish Army, brigades are composed of 2 regiments of 1 or 2 battalions each. Although infantry regiments are only administrative units, they keep the traditions of older units and are commanded by Colonels. Brigades are commanded by Brigadiers. In case of war, a Corps sized unit would have been committed to operations in the Southern theater of operations. This Corps could have been either mechanized or mountain. There are six commands: Central, Southern, Levante, Eastern Pyrenees, Western Pyrenees and Northwestern Command.




    The Spanish Armada (in Spanish, Armada Española) is the maritime arm of the Spanish Military, one of oldest active naval forces in the world. The modern Spanish Armada's roots date back far before the discovery of America. Subordinate to the Spanish Chief of Naval Staff, with his headquarters in Madrid, were four zone commands: the Cantabrian Maritime Zone with its headquarters at El Feroll on the Atlantic coast; the Straits Maritime Zone with its headquarters at San Fernando near Cadiz; the Mediterranean Maritime Zone with its headquarters at Cartagena; and the Canary Islands Maritime Zone with its headquarters at Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
