Investing vast sums of money he oversaw the most innovative efforts imaginable to protect soldiers lives and improve survivability. His experience in this field is beyond vast and here he presents his unique and incredibly informed assessment of the IED threat and the role that armoured vehicles have in saving lives and succeeding in our missions. Countering IED Focus Day, Opening Session 1 4 OPERATIONAL PERSPECTIVES ON IN SERVICE BRITISH ARMY VEHICLE TYPES THE FUTURE OF THE US ARMY AND THE CAPABILITIES REQUIRED FOR Lieutenant Colonel Harry Fullerton, Commanding Officer, Household Cavalry PARTNERSHIP WITH STRATEGIC ALLIES Regiment, British Army General Martin Dempsey, Commanding General, Training and Doctrine Command, US Army Commanding one of the most prestigious regiments in the British Army, Lieutenant Colonel Fullerton led his troops on a challenging deployment with ISAF. Returning from theatre earlier this A keynote presentation that comes right from the highest levels of command, General Dempsey year, he’d bolstered his already considerable experience with a Commander’s knowledge of what will give you unparalleled insight to the force development plans of the US Army and how that it means to utilise multiple armoured vehicle types in combat and what capabilities matter most will affect what capabilities are acquired, how ground forces fight future wars and how allied to ensure missions success. Here he shares his hard-won lessons learned so that you know exactly nations can develop partnerships to create a powerful fighting force. With a huge range of combat what technology and tactics make a difference on the front line. experience to draw upon and a reputation as one of the US military’s smartest thinkers, this is one session you cannot miss.
