Future Proofing the Warrior - The driver of prosperity (video)
The Warrior Capability Sustainment Programme (WCSP) is now in the closing stages of trials, with a final decision to move ahead with the upgrade of up to 275 Warrior vehicles expected soon.
While a favourable decision would have significant implications for the British Army, if the MoD decides to pursue WCSP at scale, the move will also bring significant economic benefits to the UK.
A KPMG report commissioned by Lockheed Martin found that upgrade work for an assumed 275 vehicles over the next eight years could bring about £1 billion gross value added (GVA) to the British economy, supporting some 2,000 jobs across hundreds of British companies.
The decision would also support the country’s sovereign turret manufacturing capability.

The planned upgrade of 275 Warrior IFVs will bring a raft of capability enhancements but also inject around £1 billion into the British economy over the life of the programme.
