With a tight focus on senior military leaders and contemporary military authors, AUSA’s Thought Leaders Webinar series seeks to educate the public on critical issues affecting the United States Army, land forces and strategy.
AUSA Thought Leaders Webinar series invites you to join us on Thursday, 6 May 2021, at 11:00 am EST for a discussion with Lieutenant General Chris Tickell, Deputy Chief of the General Staff for the British Army. LtGen Tickell will discuss the future of the British Army as it modernizes based on the results of the UK’s Integrated Review of Security, Defence, Development and Foreign Policy.
As the U.S. Army moves dynamically into the realm of Multi-Domain Operations, it is critical that its path be shared by allied armies. Among these partners, the British Army is the one ally we most closely collaborate with on a host of operational, doctrinal and developmental issues. Like America’s Army, while remaining ready to fight and win today, the British Army has set itself on course for a radical transformation as it becomes more agile, more integrated and more expeditionary—ready for the next challenge and not the last. Always ready to fight, it will be designed to operate globally on a persistent basis, exploiting the U.K. Defence’s network of Global Hubs with the capabilities and digital connectivity to compete more effectively against a hybrid range of contemporary threats. Above the threshold of conflict, warfighting capability will remain the cornerstone of deterrence and the bedrock of a world-class British Army that will also include modernized armored vehicles, the updated AH-64E Apache, long-range precision fires and surveillance assets.
