Near peer conflict, political instability and rapidly accelerating technology make for a conflict environment that is characterised by unpredictability.
In response, the well-known armoured vehicle requirements triad of mobility, survivability and lethality has been upgraded in recent years to include connectivity, autonomy and adaptability. This move creates an all-encompassing and demanding ‘Steel Hexagon’ of requirements and trade-offs.
The latter point, adaptability, speaks of the need to respond both strategically and tactically to a battlespace and threat profile that is anticipated to continue to evolve.
In today’s complex operational environment, the ability to readily deploy highly adaptable, agile and scalable equipment can offer a significant battlefield advantage. The role of armoured vehicles equipped to adapt to varying mission sets without fundamental modifications will be critical.
