Foreword

The Ministry of Defence is charged with delivering a key component of the UK’s National Security Strategy, as recently updated through the publication of the UK Strategic Defence and Security Review 2015. A key aspect of the MOD’s role is the delivery of the UK Equipment Programme, valued at over £170Bn over the next decade, to provide effective military equipment and support to our Armed Forces. The Equipment Programme includes a range of challenging projects from new Armoured Fighting Vehicles through cutting edge fighter aircraft to new warships and nuclear submarines – a very diverse portfolio.
