Progress in delivering the British Army’s armoured vehicle capability


This inquiry will focus on the procurement and use of Armoured Fighting Vehicles (AFVs) and whether more must be done to ensure the Army’s ability to deploy an armoured division. It will assess how the Army envisages employing AFVs in future operations.   

This inquiry will:   

  • examine the procurement of AFVs, including how much has been spent over the last 20 years and the number of vehicles acquired  
  • ask which capabilities have been sacrificed to fund overruns in core armoured vehicles and what gaps are emerging with the Army’s AFV capability
