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.
