Note

Sao Tome and Principe's army is a tiny force
with almost no resources at its disposal and
would be wholly ineffective operating
unilaterally; infantry equipment is considered
simple to operate and maintain but may require
refurbishment or replacement after 25 years in
tropical climates; poor pay, working conditions,
and alleged nepotism in the promotion of
officers have been problems in the past, as
reflected in the 1995 and 2003 coups; these
issues are being addressed with foreign
assistance aimed at improving the army and its
focus on realistic security concerns; command is
exercised from the president, through the
Minister of Defense, to the Chief of the Armed
Forces staff
