There is need for a debate about these urban challenges. The AARC seeks views about what a capability for urban operations could or should be, to what degree it is needed and whether it should be integral to formations or a ‘bolt on’? The AARC is planning to publish a Special Edition of papers on Urban Warfare early in 2019 and invites your contribution. You might focus on problems such as protecting dismounted urban movement or reducing civilian casualties, or you might consider new concepts for the fight itself. We are very interested in receiving ‘futures’ papers that pose scenarios and explore ‘unknown unknowns’. Blog pieces, papers - all kinds of contributions are welcome.
Go to the blog article 'Urban Warfare Capability: A Call for Professional Debate' and make your submission today.
