Just exactly how do boats & planes win wars in dusty places?The Army is a luxury to an Island nation, it’s nothing but a Home Guard without a Navy and Air Force to project it.
despite the best fervent wishes and fantasies of Land, they are not going to get lots of shiny new heavy metal to refight past glories in far away and not so dusty places. Land clearly didn’t learn its lessons of wars in dusty places - it lost, twice - and polticians are not going to let them play 3rd time lucky.
influence will now be delivered by Her Majesties shiney new BFO War Canoes, stuffed full of rough men in berets and RAF types in their wizzy war planes glaring threateningly from the sea.
the Armies future is much smaller, and much leaner, and it needs to stop with the fantastical plans and deliver itself of a coherent and costed future structure based in reality. The RN and RAF managed it.
