Magazine Description

In this issue

According to the author, hybrid entities are state-sponsored groups which possess training, discipline and equipment, like state militaries. Where these groups lack high end equipment (e.g. tanks, aircraft), they compensate with asymmetric tactics of operating in urban environment and exploiting lawfare. When faced with such a hybrid entity, modern militaries can learn from the enemy and employ a mix of conventional and unconventional forces. In this essay, the author argues for modern militaries to employ unconventional ‘plain clothes’ operatives for intelligence and Information Operations, and for conventional forces to employ smaller yet tighter air-land forces. The author feels that the efficient way to fight hybrid entities is the use of hybrid methods to fight fire with fire.
