The Aviation Task Force has a reconnaissance and an attack element and is part of the Army’s Global Response Force. The Force was created as part of Future Soldier, the Army’s transformation plan. It will be ready to respond rapidly to any threat, anywhere in the world, including to deliver humanitarian support.”

So no different to what went before then, just a rebranding. Not “New” in any shape or form I can see.

The Army seems to be forced into frequent re-branding exercises to divert attention from the savage manpower cuts and flaky equipment upgrade or replacement plans. The creation of Rangers is another, as is the launch of Brigade Comat Teams. Its all rather sad. I have serious doubts about the Army’s ability to deploy at scale, meaning a division plus on a single operation or to deal with multiple, warfighting, peacemaking or peacekeeping operations, without calling up huge numbers of Reserve Army personnel, and being able to do that in a timely manner.

At the moment the navy takes priority it seems but the way things are for the army at present is grossly underfunded and under manned ,its dam right disgrace.

And yet I believe of the 3 services the army has had the biggest budget for years.
Got to hope the extra equipment spend committed to in the review actually delivers, artillery, ISTAR, SHORAD, EW, Precision weapons, drones, and so on.
