Am I the only one who thinks that the repeated rantings of senior officers and those who have been further away than Bde level staff for more than 2 years are utter bollocks. Do they expect us to believe that we will have integrated fire controll and data communications that will go direct to div comds from the Pte at the front line. A newer better fighter, when euro fighter is still not here after 20 years of development? Aircraft carrier in 10 years ? And the tank reduntant because of the other capabilities we have are so much better than anybody else? We don't even have a rifle that works yet, radios that work without moving parts and valves, tanks that can go in the desert and a gun in our inf vehicles that's design dates after 1950s. Even the Ethiopians have better in theatre accomodation than us. Call me a cynic, but I think it's less than likely.
