The paper focuses on a combat capability assessment approach of military units based on calculation of how they are being equipped by weapons and military hardware. Partial and aggregated indexes of technical and operational level of weapons and military equipment (WME) are proposed, not only concerning individual samples but also the set of WME of military units. A military unit equipped by a medium-range anti-aircraft missile complex is taken for example and the calculations of its combat capability using indexes of technical and operational level of WME are given.
