Amalgamations - Artillery and Cavalry

#1
If we reduce both Armour and Artillery by 40%, which Regiments will be next for Amalgamation. Are we really likely to have a more simplified Armoured Corps and just lose the SP Arty?

31. How many CR2 and AS90 will the British Army retain?

227 CR2 (from 384) and 95 AS90 (from 146).

32. When will CR2 and AS90 reductions take effect?

From the next FY: Wef 1 April 2011.

33. What impact will the reductions in CR2 and AS90 have on those units?

One Bty in each of the five AS90 Regt’s will re-role to 105mm Lt Gun in order that each Regt has a mix of capabilities to deploy in support of current operations. CR2 Regts will see no significant changes, less a reduction to unit-holdings of MBT.

34. What will happen to those CR2 and AS90 that we no longer require?

The disposal plan for CR2 and AS90 has yet to be decided.

35. Will the CR2 and WR upgrade programmes still go ahead?

We believe that both the CR2 and WR upgrade programme will continue, but may be subject to savings (reduced numbers and a reduced capability against current plans).

Of course the majority of these vehicles will be in WFM Dry air storage, locations tbc. Only a small number of vehilces will be centrally held at training grounds for both basic and "refreshment" training by units. Given the speed at which units will be rotating through these training areas (Canada and Poland??) the vehickles are likely to get some serious mileages and MTBF times will require close control.

More of a merger between RA and AAC - would help deconflict the airspace a bit better, and save on 1 x RHQ/Corps HQ etc.

I seem to remember a statement within the PM's SDR announcement that no combat units would be cut. This was further emphasised when he stated that no Infantry or RAC units would be disbanded. Add to that the further statement that no units currently deployed in Afghanistan would be cut and you can work things out for yourself. Of course it does rather depend on PM's definition of combat units and whether he is using the officially recognised groupings of Cbt, CS and CSS. Anyway 5 Bdes and 6 CS Arty regts...do the maths!

Sadly what politicians say often has little bearing on what eventually happens. I can find no quote "that no Infantry or RAC units would be disbanded" and it would be a very odd thing to say. He did make reference to no reduction in combat power - a hugely different and very subjective statement.
