Here, Rear Admiral Terry Loughran (Rt’d) is vividly frank about the shortfalls of British involvement in Afghanistan. He proposes that investment in projected power - naval force projection - is the potential answer to protracted land warfare. In terms of efficiencies, the Royal Navy is subject to cuts, but a tradition of sustainable efficiency is in some ways ingrained in the Royal Navy tradition. The major concern with pending SDSR cuts is that significant gains won't be made unless entire capabilities are cut. Surface reductions only serve to render existing capabilities ineffectual - and extremely risky.
