Seeing as most TA don't have BOWMAN due to resource issues, its all needed to support the two Ops, it makes me think we don't have enough ICS assets to do this anymore. Ptarmigan is an antique and can't support a modern army. Falcon isn't in service and was based on the demands of a few years ago, I suspect it will deliver a vastly poorer date rate/service to COTS kit currently in service I know ARRC has deployed recently but not without the scale of supporting services needed in a break in op. Via normal work I know the demands a part of the CSS would/will put on the network. Have been reading a TA thread on (lack of) BOWMAN and I feel they're an ICS generation or two behind modern demands. 12 Sig Grp with their Ptarmigan provide a healthy supply of reserve drivers but to drive what??? Should we just stop creating big systems i.e. PTARMIGAN/FALCON/BOWMAN etc and upgrade elements when needed (I'll call it COTS).
