If a major war happens believe me we will see more divisions raised, each with their own role and we will see 24 artillery a brigade and columns of tanks... yet this is peacetime and all we need is a multi-role brigade structure that is meant for deploying to light-medium intensity conflicts and high intensity with coalition support. Hell maybe add another brigade into the mix just for retention and to keep the Troop's happy so they receive more training time and less deployed time.
    Believe me, that is the last thing we want. A high tempo Army is a happy army.

    Training is boring as ****. At least you get good pay while deployed.

Aren't you getting it through through your head that due to current and future operations we need to be able to sustain our force in theatre? How hard is is to understand that concept?
    I have no issue with the Amphib group, I have issue with the fact that Beersheba as shown on that nice slide cannot work with current resources.

    Current deployments are slated to end in a couple of years, which may or may not happen. We need to be ready for the next operation, not the last one.

    The concept is not difficult to understand, it is difficult to implement, thats the fun part

    There is a difference between deploying once every three years for one year and for only nine months. No one wants to spend a year away from home.

    Trips to nungers and Tully to prep for patrolling on the IJ/PNG border. Everyone rolled as light and rappelling courses back in vogue.

    The army and government (liberal and labor) foresee us deploying regionally in East Timor like deployments. Hence the ARG and the multi-role brigades.
