Military Competitions Committee

Military Competitions Committee (MILCOMP)

The Military Competition Committee provides advanced military skills training, leadership development, physical challenge, intercultural experience and international friendship by staging the annual CIOR Military Competition.

Committee Tasks

Plan and execute the CIOR Military Pentathlon in accordance with the existing regulations.
Proceed with efforts for obtaining NATO accreditations on MilComp.

This year’s event has not placed any pressure on the Committee due to the vast knowledge of our German hosts. Any nation with experience of competing at the highest level and previously hosting the event can stage Milcomp with very little support. We however are always keen to support new nations who have not competed or hosted Milcomp before. Latvia, Turkey, Bulgaria, Poland and the Czech Republic have all recently hosted the event without any previous experience and with the required support from MilComp Committee staged good competitions. This support will be available for other nations as they host their first MilComp.

To ensure that MilComp remains a true test of combat effectiveness and therefore provides value for military commanders is our main challenge.
