What's inside this edition:


A visit to DefExpo 2020 in Lucknow only served to underline the problems continuing to beset Indian Army procurement programmes.


Features include:

City limits

Conflict zones in built-up areas present unique challenges, both tactical and technological, for military forces.


Light weapons

Recent testing of laser systems for counter-UAS and air defence applications across a number of developing projects suggests they could expand in army use over the coming decade..


Other features include:

A new era?

The prospect of facing off against adversaries with equal or better equipment and technology is forcing a rethink of procurement and doctrine among Western ground forces.

Balancing act

Shephard’s Defence Insight analyses how the rebalancing of defence capabilities from COIN to peer-on-peer conflict is reflected in armoured vehicle procurement programmes.

Unseen opportunities

Concerns surrounding the Russian Army’s EW prowess are well placed, but the force’s modernisation efforts are creating openings for NATO practitioners at operational and tactical levels.

Enduring legacy?

A number of Europe’s AFV fleets are still dominated by platforms built or conceived in the Cold War era. Shephard’s Defence Insight analyses current inventories and assesses their replacement potential.

Eternal life?

Modernisation efforts continue for the venerable M2 heavy machine gun, with new ammunition and mounts keeping the weapon relevant into its second century.
