Operational Command

In peace operations, the authority granted to a commander to assign missions or tasks to subordinate commanders to deploy units, reassign forces and to retain or delegate operational or tactical control. It is the highest level of operational authority which can be given to an appointed commander who is acting out of his own national chain of command and is seldom used by Member States of the United Nations (UN).
