Today, the live training environment is not conducive to many of the training needs of fifth generation platforms: live training ranges are spatially too restricted, fail to produce realistic threat scenarios, and risk revealing the unique war fighting attributes of platforms. These barriers are pressing military operatives to rethink live training in favor of more realistic missions in virtual environments. In this exclusive article, Jennifer argues why a blend of techniques, known as live, virtual, and constructive (LVC) training is increasingly viewed as the future of military training.
The battlespace is increasingly complex and requires land forces to be flexible and have mobility while preserving their lethality, using systems that are more and more digitised.
This exclusive interview with General David G. Perkins, Commanding General at the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command, provides insight into the next generation warfare and its implications on the procurement decisions and assets design for the land forces of tomorrow.
Land power is indispensable to achieve strategic objectives on the ground. The battlefield is changing and new threats and enemies are emerging, creating new procurement requirements and challenges for armed forces and the armoured vehicle community needs to adapt to this evolution.
Take a look at the presentation given by General David G. Perkins, Commanding General, U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command. He discussed designing the future army to create a versatile, tailorable future force.
