Summary/Abstract: The fields of war have changed in time, which has caused transformations, both in the approach to confrontation and in the physiognomy and typology of actions. The military conflict has been characterised by irregularity: traditional and non-traditional actors acting directly or indirectly, with their own forces or through intermediaries (proxy forces), creating their own conventional or paramilitary military structures, and carrying out conventional actions concurrently with terrorist activities specific to insurgency or organised crime. The solutions for countering the hybrid conflict must be understood in terms of summing up the known (conventional) and the less known characteristics of the conflict, as well as of developing new, unexpected, surprising (irregular) ones, determined by the evolution in the operational field.
