I've recently been wondering after various canceled or threatened military procurement projects have gone down the drain; what would be an estimate of a tri-service budget to solve all equipment woes and new projects which are expected to be needed in the future, in addition to increasing the size of current procurement projects so that they can actually deliver what they are supposed to (e.g too few T45s'). The budget should naturally not just be a procurement based one but also one which deals with the other facets of military spending, e.g veterans and research. It would help if your estimated budgets would be broken down into various divisions of spending (research, procurement, etc.) Hopefully the budgets won't be too fantastic, but perhaps a realistic proposal which could conceivably be implemented (unlikely but possible). The budget should deal with two Afghanistan size operational scenarios (include your estimates of needed size of military as well if you like). Would just be interested to hear some thoughts.
