Welcome to the world’s premier armoured vehicles forum
Unconventional, irregular and hybrid warfare carried out by both state and non-state actors continues to be a critical feature of current and potential operating scenarios faced by armies around the world.
Russia’s annexation of Crimea was shockingly effective and demonstrated the renewed need for NATO to be able to move Armour in volume and at speed across Europe to meet future threats. Across swathes of Syria and Iraq, Daesh have continued to consolidate their hold with many anticipating they will remain influential in the region over the next decade. Possessing the capability to deploy is often deterrent enough to render the use of force unnecessary. However, to stabilise and ultimately resolve such issues can require ‘boots on the ground’; firepower, mobility, protection and information networks. This almost certainly means joint force deployment and in particular a combination of aerial platforms, armoured vehicles, and special forces.
IAVs 2016 addressed such questions as; what technology and platforms are we preparing for current and future scenarios? How can the modern armoured vehicle continue to adapt and remain capable in 21st century theatres of conflict? How can we deploy assets at speed? How can we best operate and communicate within a joint and multinational environment
