An Order of Battle (OOB) is standard military terminology for the description of a military organization. It presents which units are known to exist, how they are organized, and what are their responsibilities.


The intent of this OOB is to present the military and paramilitary security forces that are under the official control of the Iraqi government. The OOB includes regular Army, Special Forces, Navy, Air Force, and Paramilitary Police.


The OOB does not include militias, insurgents forces or foreign forces that are not under the official control of Iraqi government.


This OOB is not classified. It is derived from open source data only. As such, it is only as accurate as the data that is published.


Locations listed for Iraqi units are color coded by month.  Units with location in black have not been reported in over a year.  Units without locations have never been located and may be still planned or forming.
