BLUFLessons to be learned are the importance of close air support, good communication and logistics, unity of command, high-quality junior leadership and effective and efficient training.
Mykhaylo Zabrodskyi writing for the UK think tank, the Royal United Services Institute(RSI), highlights the following:
- Wartime survivability depends on dispersing ammunition stocks, command and control, maintenance areas and aircraft.
- Large initial dispersed stockpiles, and significant industrial surge capacity, are crucial to delivering military capability.
- Uncrewed aerial systems (UAS) and counter-UAS (CUAS) capability is essential for all services.
- Ninety per cent of UAS are likely to be lost, so they must be relatively cheap and easy to replace.
