Analysis: DoD budget will 'severely constrain' Army, Marine vehicle modernization
Monday - 3/12/2012, 5:30pm EDT
The modernization of Army and Marine Corps ground vehicles is the subject of a recent CSBA report, "The Road Ahead: Future Challenges and Their Implications for Ground Vehicle Modernization."
Krepinevich and his co-author, Eric Lindsey, wrote that the while both services are in the early stages of vehicle modernization, those efforts "will be severely constrained by the budget cuts looming over the Department of Defense."
The report found a number of "trends," that will impact vehicle requirements, including:
- "The evolution of the armor/anti-armor competition" — the fluctuation between efforts to create capabilities that defeat vehicle protection vs. those that protect combat vehicles.
- "The proliferation of precision-guided weaponry" — The increasing use of guided rockets and other artillery by both state and non-state actors
