The presence of the set of unresolved scientific and practical problems in the new field offorensic expertise "Military Research" is determined, and, first of all, it’s a deficit of scientific and methodical provision. The purpose of the paper is to define the comprehensive nature of forensic research in the military sphere. The experience of modern wars and armed conflicts shows that the battle of combined-arms formations acquires the features of land-and-air combat. It’s noted that in today’s combined arms battles and operations, it’s possible to solve successfully the tasks posed only in a complex manner. An analysis of the expert practice of the Kharkiv RIFE shows that during the last period the amount of the forensic military expertise has significantly increased. When conducting investigative activities in this category of criminal proceedings, a number of different issues arise, resolution of which requires special knowledge in various fields of science. In the Kharkiv RIFE there was initiated the performance of research work on the topic "The technique of forensic expert study of the work of commanders (staffs) and military formations in the preparation and realization of combat (service-combat) tasks". The novelty of the work lies in the fact that for the first time an algorithm is developed for determining, from a military point ofview, the compliance ofactions of responsible persons with the established requirements. An opinion was expressed that the subject of any research, including expert, is its immediate performer. In the latter case, it’s only a forensic expert or a person who is procedurally involved in the performance of the examination. The definition of the subject of a forensic military expertise is given. Attention is drawn to the need of availability for the forensic experts and specialists who participate in carrying out forensic military examinations, of the admittance to the information with limited access.
