Good morale and discipline plus systematization Soldiers must be fit and healthy to ensure military readiness. In a battle, they must apply their learned military tactics effectively and fight fearlessly. Military personnel are assigned according to their ranks. Every individual must attend higher level courses step by step based on his ability, years of service, and outstanding performances. Soldiers are being trained individually to become dutiful.
Soldiers must be disciplined and well organized. As discipline is an obligation to ensure uniformed appearances and actions, it must be observed. Adoption of military and civilian discipline is for having orderly arrangements and efficiency. Discipline must be controlled through positionwise and sectorwise supervision. Soldiers must be obedient to observe rules. Tatmadaw is strengthened by its discipline and obeisance.
All Tatmadaw members have possessed good morals. Hence, they are to try hard to strengthen the morals individually. Doing any measures, man matter most, and results depend on their hardworking. So, all Tatmadaw members have to cement individual morals. Those who try to improve capacity of the Tatmadaw are Tatmadaw members. Only when individual capacity of Tatmadaw members is higher will the whole unit improve as well as will the whole Tatmadaw have higher capacity. The defence capacity of the State will also be higher.
