“The edge Deter and Defend provides is clear. Thirty allied nations have one military planning framework, our plans harmonised, our capabilities synchronised, and our forces are interoperable,” said Lieutenant General Hubert Cottereau, SHAPE Vice Chief of Staff.
Plans will address particular challenges including disrupting terrorism and improving our ability to rapidly deploy military forces.
Whether a plan considers a geographic region, a missile defence strategy, or the logistical connections between North America and the Baltic states, it is integrated with other plans.
In short, all military planning now supports the unified framework of ‘Deter and Defend’.
