We now live in a seemingly much more complicated world; cyber-attacks, asymmetric warfare, terrorism at home and abroad/ The Nation states’ monopoly on the use of force has been eroded and non-state actors have become increasingly powerful drivers of change.
To generate both a breath of knowledge and a depth of insight, the panel discussion will feature the most senior officers and strategic decision makers who are setting the long-term strategies on the future direction of land power and armoured capability
Aim: To investigate the balance of capabilities required within future Land Forces.
· To hear perspectives from very senior military officers regarding their assessments of national and collective capabilities required to meet expected future challenges in the LAND Environment.
· Subsequent discussion should take into account the range of military roles from War fighting, Counter Insurgency and Stabilisation to Peace Support and Humanitarian Assistance, and the Challenges presented by Hybrid and Ambiguous Warfare.
· Discussion will also consider the utility of Armoured Forces against the spectrum of requirements, and how they might contribute to an appropriately balanced Land force.
