The research method used in this study consists in review of Poland and global logistics literature, as well as military literature. On the basis of conducted observations and on the basis of literature there has been presented basic elements organized by logistic subunits realizing tasks of material security of troops at tactical level.

The analysis of documents allowed to identify and characterize the operation of material security elements at tactical level. The article presents their grouping and deployment in the grouping of own troops during the assault and defense.

Identified elements and their tasks are focused on satisfying material needs in the supply of means of procurement and providing specialized material services.
