WEST 2019: Day Two
What Are We Doing to Acquire the Capabilities to Build a More Lethal, Resilient and Rapidly Adapting Force?
To ready the force for high-end warfare, gray-zone conflict, and other challenges related to Russian and Chinese aggression, the joint force must deliver capability at a competitive speed. Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard commanders discuss what they are doing to rapidly and effectively acquire major systems and platforms to deter aggression, enable resolution of crises, and if needed, conduct decisive combat operations to defeat any enemy.
