a. Armoured Cavalry Implementation: Consists of the Specialist Vehicle (SV) Project (principally the Scout vehicle) to deliver the new Armoured Cavalry and Close Recce capability, to equip the current Brigade Recce Regiments and the Close Recce Platoons/Troops and replace the obsolete Combat Vehicle Reconnaissance (Tracked) (CVR(T)) fleet.
b. Armoured Infantry (AI): Consists of the WCSP, incl ABSV, and WCSP Trg solution projects, to improve the Warrior capability to create an upgraded and fully integrated AI capability.
c. Armoured Type 56: Consists of the CR2 Life Extension Programme and its training aides to provide the Armoured capability out to 2035.
d. Mechanised Infantry: The capability is currently provided by the COUGAR fleet but will be equipped through the Utility Vehicle project to ensure the protected movement and manoeuvre of infantry and associated Combat Support users on the future battlefield. |
