International Armoured Vehicles 2016: A Review of Everything You Missed
Defence IQ’s International Armoured Vehicles (IAVs) 2016 conference in January delivered an exceptional agenda underpinned by an authoritative speaker faculty, which included keynote presentations from the UK’s head of armoured vehicle programmes at DE&S Major General Talbot-Rice, the Chief of the General Staff for the Afghan National Army H. E. General Qadamshah Shaheem, and the Commanding General of U.S. Army Materiel Command General Dennis L. Via.
The high-level presentations explored all aspects of the armoured vehicle operating environment such as future requirements from nations investing in protected mobility, ideas for how the military and industry can work better together, and alternatives for more cost effective fleet acquisition in the future. Under the informed direction of Lieutenant General Sir Gary Coward, the Chairman of the conference, the presentations were also considered within a wider defence industrial context, offering practical solutions to contemporary challenges faced by government, industry and the military.
