In 1997 Army's then Land Warfare Studies Centre argued for far more 2-sided army & joint exercises, rather than FTX & CPX with "directed enemy". Headline-experiment series at LWDC (Puckapunyal) to design future army were one result but dinosaurs resisted the lessons.

My original thinking was about ADF logistics, but I'd be interested in your thoughts on a 'sustainment battle' which would absolutely involve disrupting / destroying enemy sustainment. This is why I don't do the heavy thinking on my own......

Great article “Controlled exercises that guarantee victory do not provide a suitable environment for a tactician to challenge Army’s philosophical approach to land warfare nor do they expose the vulnerabilities that future adversaries will inherently seek to exploit”

Great article. Airmen often lament that they don’t know the planning process as well as soldiers but maybe that’s not such a bad thing after all? Can the focus on tactical excellence embodied in AWIC transfer across the joint force?

Great work Nick, completely agree on the requirement to expand upon the green and templated solutions within our TEs. We must create the environment that encourages and is prepared for novel application of tactics.

I don't get the point of having the instructor variable as an exponent. Point would be much clearer if c was a multiplying factor. Exponentiating makes it more complex and adds unintended features to the graph. But hey, I'm just a digger.

Looks like the Command might be paying attention. Our tactical acumen is not where I would like it to be. The operational art needs more development in the face of a heavy emphasis on the science of war through endless teaching of the MAP. Be frank, have a view....
