General Sir Peter Wall
3:00 PM SCENARIO BUILD: SUPPORTING A MOBILE ARMOURED INFANTRY BRIGADE DEPLOYED IN THE EUROPEAN THEATRE AGAINST A PEER STRENGTH OPPONENT
The return of NATO and allied forces to conventional operations against a peer threat has heralded a returned emphasis on mobility and momentum on the battlefield. Ensuring the mobile force is able to sustain momentum and capability against peer level opposition places a new strain on the support commander, responsible for ensuring the force is able to operate freely across the battlefield, and maintain a fighting capability to engage and defeat the opposing force on their terms.
Led by General Sir Peter Wall,Chief of the General Staff, British Army (2010-2014), the extended scenario build will play through the deployment phase and ongoing sustainment and support of a brigade deployed in a combat role in the European theatre against a peer adversary. Drawing on lessons identified across the previous conference days, this afternoon session will provide delegates the opportunity to put these lessons into practice, and share approaches and ideas with peers across a range of backgrounds in both Military Engineering and Logistics.
Key challenges addressed throughout the session will include:
· Deploying a brigade level force into a foreign theatre
· Logistical and infrastructural challenges to maintain the deployed force in theatre
· Ensuring mobility of the force, and denying mobility to the deployed
