Armor & Mobility

If we had to choose a single word that would convey the major thrust of the October issue of Armor & Mobility, it would be NEW. The features in this issue shed light on recent defense developments, including new aspects of Army prepositioned stocks, the Army’s new four-star command—the Army Futures Command, the concept of Multi-Domain Operations, and efforts at modernizing gear for both Soldiers and Marines.

  • MG Duane A. Gamble, Commanding General, U.S. Army Sustainment Command, on Army prepositioned stocks, including the new combat-configured APS and the Configured for Combat plan

  • LTG Eric J. Wesley, Deputy Commanding General, Futures / Director, Army Capabilities Integration Center, U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command, on Multi-Domain Operations: its purpose, importance and necessity

  • Justin Eimers, Public Affairs Office at Program Executive Office Command, Control, Communications-Tactical, on the Developmental Operations model, including its focus on putting new technology in the hands of Soldiers and receiving their feedback early in the acquisition process
