    Britian is an Island nation so a capable navy is required, That is the one lesson of History.
    The Army needs to be capable of undertaking the 'Tasks' the Governemt sets. We seem to have moved from an Armour Heavy, to Infantry Light, formation. The Nue Government must pay to requipe the forces for this role.
    The Crabs, well I'll just say that on this Army fourum they can get on with their most useful function,Trash hauling, as they did back in the Burma days of WW II, upset those Jet Jockey Fighter types who seem to dominate that organisation.

    What was/is the Defence Industrial Strategy?
  4. it is an atempt to rationalise defence policy, the EP/ESP and defence contractors

    It looks at technologies, whether the UK needs a soveriegn capability or can buy it from abroad, and directs research themes

    A good idea in principle, but doomed because it requires strategic vision - and this govt is incapable of that
