The geopolitical environment and the future naval/air/sea battlefield present demanding challenges for structure, equipment and tactical employment. Conventional warfighting in support of national territorial defence will remain the benchmark against which armed forces must train and prepare, involving the commitment of combined arms in a battlespace where the capability to rapidly manoeuvre and concentrate fire will be at a premium.
