EN For the development of the use of sea transport in the process of transferring troops, the ability to satisfy the reported needs is of key importance. It should be noted that nowadays the acquisition of means of sea transport can be secured from the following sources: naval vessels of the Polish Navy; warships and transport vessels of the armed forces of other countries - made available on the basis of bilateral agreements or agreements; warships or civilian transport vessels obtained through the participation of the Polish Armed Forces in multinational NATO and European Union programs; commercial civilian ships chartered (contracted) from Polish or foreign sea carriers. Such a wide range of possibilities creates real conditions to pay special attention to sea transport in the process of building strategic transport capacity for the national armed forces and allied coalition forces. The aim of the paper is to identify the scale of the phenomenon of maritime transport in the Polish Armed Forces over the last 10 years and to indicate the directions of development of maritime transport used during military operations. The structure of the article covering the three basic parts is subordinated to the purpose of the work. The first one refers to the conditions of using maritime transport for the needs of the armed forces, the second identifying the scale of the analyzed phenomenon and the third one, prognostic indicating the potential development directions of this extremely important sphere of functioning of each army.
