Anyone know how or where I could get detailed statistics on the SANDF for as far back as possible?

From budget allocations to units, equipment, troop numbers etc.

Trying to do a little project to analyze the SANDF over the years.

The DoD Annual Reports, DoD Strategy Plans and Defence budget documentation (Vote 21, then later Vote 19) contain a wealth of info ... all publicaly available.

DOD Annual reports since 2004/5 are available at http://www.dod.mil.za/documents/documents.htm

The Treasury has budget documents available at http://www.treasury.gov.za/documents/na ... fault.aspx you may have to do a bit of digging to extract specifically defence information.

If you need anything else the SecDef is probably the best place to make equiries:
Secretary for Defence

Defence Headquarters, Armscor Building, cnr Delmas Avenue and Nossob Street, Erasmuskloof, PRETORIA
Tel: (012) 355 6220 / 6219

Thanks.

I was hoping I could get some nice csv/excel files instead of having to trawl through long pdf docs but alas it doesn't seem to be. I did email the DOD, so hopefully something can come out of it.

:smt023 - ask me, I know ....... in many cases Google is seldom your friend.

Been trying to compare how the UDF/SADF/SANDF (in general) and SAAF (in particular) organizational & operational structures have changed over the years. Not an easy task.
