The MoDs Army 2020 publication states that the delivery of Army 2020 will involve a long period of transformation as far reaching as the Army has undertaken in decades. It sets out the following targets: · Manning: Army 2020 will create an integrated Army of 112,000 personnel by 2020: 82,000 Regulars by 2020 and 30,000 trained Reserves by 2018. · Army Reserves: Army 2020 will deliver a committed and transformed Army Reserve, manned, trained and equipped as part of the whole Force. There will need to be a change in the relationship between the Army, its Reservists and their employers. · Basing: The Reaction Forces will be centred on the Salisbury Plain Training Area and the Adaptable Force Brigades in seven centres across the UK. · Equipment: This will include the Warrior Capability Sustainment Programme and a commitment to an armoured vehicle programme that will see the delivery of Scout for the Armed Cavalry Regiments and Utility vehicles across the Army. There is confirmed investment in the helicopter fleet, complex weapons, modern communications and electronic countermeasures. Question: From your experiences, what are the challenges to achieving these Army 2020 targets? And how could these be overcome?
