The ground-breaking event is intended to support the development of thinking behind Reservist use of the most complex ground manoeuvre platforms in the world, focusing on both theoretical and applied aspects of capability. It comes at a time when the increasing complexity of platforms is being matched by the escalating costs of the soldiers required to crew and manage them. In fact, the cost of human resources – especially in terms of training and investment – is now the major part of the financial burden, despite (and in part because of) increasing sophistication of equipment. In order to maintain capabilities, militaries need to think in new ways and embrace new models of employment, overcoming enshrined norms.
The conference aims to:
Advance the conceptual understanding of Reservist use of armour, especially around utility, training, and the (re)generation of armoured capability
Increase cooperation in the international armoured Reservist community
Position RWxY as a thought leader in this area within the UK and international defence communities
