UK Defence Organisation – Levene and Army 2020

Tactical Air Refueller

A post from a new contributor, MartinR

The Levene Report on changes to the MOD sensibly pulled a number of defence organisations into one central joint forces command. However it also appeared to push the three armed services into deeper silos than before, each with their own budgets, etc.

I believe that an opportunity was missed to bring the three armed services together at the operational level. I would like to discuss this.

Annex I is a rough sketch of how I suggest that HM Armed Forces should be organised. It does not show everything, as I do not know everything, but it provides a framework. I have not included training organisations, establishments or units.

I suggest reducing the number of 4 star officers to four, as the numbers of service personnel do not, in my view, warrant more. Each 4 star officer should be a member of the Defence Staff, rather than the Naval, General or Air Staffs.

The 4 star officers should each command elements of all three armed services and the civil services to achieve their shared aim of defending the United Kingdom’s people, territories and interests.

I consider that the three armed services should remain separate entities. However they must always be looked on as parts of the whole; rather than as independent services that cooperate when necessary but otherwise go their separate ways.

Each armed service should be headed by a 3 star officer, who is the head of his service, and who concentrates on his service to ensure that it is always ready to play its part in defending the nation. However he must be subordinate to the CDS & VCDS.

The present system resembles a battalion where all the company commanders are lieutenant colonels, rather than majors, who consider that they can do as they wish, with just a nod to the CO & 2IC every now and then.

If the Navy complain that the RN cannot possibly be headed by a Vice-Admiral they should be reminded that Lord Nelson was a Vice-Admiral and if that rank was good enough for him…..

UK Defence Forces

The main change that I would like to see is that all the people who do the fighting should be under one operational 4 star headquarters at Northwood. All operations and exercises at home and overseas should be commanded by HQ United Kingdom Defence Forces.  HQUKDF replaces PJHQ.

CINCUKDF would directly command the 3 star Naval, Land, Air and Joint Forces operational commanders without there being any involvement, other than supportive, by the service chiefs of staff. CINCUKDF would report to CDS and would have access to the Secretary of State for Defence.

CINCUKDF would be responsible to the CDS for the conduct of all UK defensive and offensive military operations. He would be looking at the ‘Here and Now’, whilst his 4 star colleagues would be looking at ‘Ways and Means’ and ‘the Future’.

CINCUKDF would not be able to use the strategic deterrent without the explicit approval of the Prime Minister; though would be responsible, with CUKNF, for ensuring that the SSBN is in place, defended and ready to launch when needed.

HQ UKDF should be where all the operational decisions are made. The forces commanders should be based at Northwood, so that they, and their staffs, might plan operations and major exercises together under the command of the CINC.

It is unlikely that Northwood could house all the personnel required to support the commanders and so the commanders’ staffs should be split between Northwood and the service HQs in Portsmouth, Andover and High Wycombe.

HQUKDF should also command territorial defence, which should be a Joint Forces responsibility. All support provided by the Armed Forces to the civil authorities and to service personnel and their families should be delivered by Defence Territorial Command through ten Defence Districts.

Army 2020 links the Adaptable Forces to the regional brigades, presumably to save money, but it would seem to me that this will result in brigade commanders trying to look both ways at once. It would be better if the money were saved by having a tri-service command looking inwards and having separate Adaptable Forces looking outwards. 

UK Naval Forces

I suggest only minor changes to the way the Naval Forces’ waterfront organisation is designed. My changes are simply to bring the design into line with the design that I suggest for Land and Air Forces.

UK Land Forces

I am impressed with Army 2020, it makes the best out of a bad job, but consider that dividing the fighting elements of the Army into two parts – Reaction & Adaptable – is likely to produce a ‘first eleven / second eleven’ split, with resulting morale problems within the second eleven.

I suggest an alternative organisation in Annex II, which follows the A-FORM process at divisional level, rather than at major unit level. The roles, location and equipment of all major units in Annex II are taken from the various Army 2020 publications.

Three combat divisions, each with 12 major combat units under command (10 if the Scots leave the UK), move through the ‘training for operations’, ‘operations’ and ‘other duties’ cycle.

Each GOC and his senior staff should remain in post for the three years of the cycle, which will allow them to have experience across the A-FORM cycle. This should help when a new CUKLF is being selected.

The third major-general would be from HQ London District. If there is a very good reason for there being a major-general in London then this could be the divisional headquarters, though it would be better if it were with 1 Signal Regiment in Stafford, which has a long history of being a divisional HQ.

Each combat division would have two brigade headquarters, one armoured and one mechanised, each of which could command an overseas force for six months during an enduring operation.

One brigade would provide an armoured reaction force and the other a mechanised (protected mobility) adaptable force during the years that the division is on, ready for, or training for, operations.

Each division would also have four light battalions (two if the Scots leave us) which could be used with either the reaction force, the adaptable force or independently.

Each armoured brigade would be able to form three armoured battlegroups from the armoured regiment and the two armoured infantry battalions – each with one armoured squadron, two armoured infantry company groups and one armoured artillery battery. A fourth armoured squadron would be held in reserve.

A command battlegroup would also be formed from the armoured cavalry regiment – three cavalry reconnaissance squadrons, a cavalry command mobility and protection squadron, a UAS artillery battery, a brigade HQ & Signals squadron and an intelligence company. The command battlegroup would resemble 30 Cdo IX Group RM, though with more assets.

Each mechanised brigade would have three mechanised battlegroups and one command battlegroup.

If the Scots leave the UK the loss of The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards would cut our cavalry regiments down to five. Their command and ISTAR role would have to be taken on by an infantry battalion; or the 9/12L & QRL merger could be halted.

Let us hope that the Scots do not leave, as their leaving the British Army will be a major loss to the Army and the UK. If they do leave; perhaps a defence treaty could keep them in the British Army.

Cyprus should be garrisoned by two light battalions from the ‘operations’ division on one year tours.  The ‘operations’ division should also continuously provide an infantry company group on a two month tour in the Falklands.

The garrison in Brunei should remain with the Gurkha battalions. Public Duties should be carried out by two infantry, usually Guards, battalions from the ‘other duties’ division.

In an emergency; the ‘training for operations’ combat division should be able to deploy overseas on combat operations. If ‘push comes to shove’ the harmony guidelines go out the window.

The combat divisions should be very flexible, with force packages tailored for each operation or major exercise by HQ UKLF and the division’s command staff, based on the orders given to them by HQ UKDF. Close support units (eg 7 RHA) would continue to have a close relationship with the combat units they usually support.

Each division should also have tailored combat support, command support and combat services support packages from two support divisions.

I would put all combat services support units together under one divisional HQ – this would allow for the maximum flexibility, common standards of service provision and could avoid unnecessary duplication – and the combat support and command support units under another. The former would be from Support Command and the latter from Force Troops Command.

I have not shown reserve infantry, cavalry, special forces and artillery major units (other than HAC) as I consider that they should disband, with the reserve companies, squadrons and batteries being subordinated to regular major unit HQs; see Annex IV. This should allow for improved integration. All regular major units would have two reserve minor units under command.

Where regiment/battalion sub-units are concerned they should be looked at as semi-independent minor units (with sub-units being troops and platoons) each with its own unique title. They are commanded by majors, rather than captains as in the US Army and other armies, and so should be able to act independently.

The names of the regiments that got us through the two world wars have disappeared from the British Army’s Order of Battle and from the uniforms of our soldiers. I consider this to be a great shame, and so I suggest in Annex IV that, whilst the old regiments cannot be resurrected, their names could still live on in their successor regiments as the names of companies and squadrons.

Where equipment is concerned I consider that the protected mobility vehicles are more suited to RLC (Mastiff) & major unit (Foxhound) battlefield bus/taxi duties, with the Jackals being used for force/route protection.

The light cavalry regiments and mechanised battalions should, I believe, be equipped with VBCI/Stryker/Boxer type 8 x 8 mechanised infantry fighting vehicles manufactured in the UK; if ever we have the money for them.

UK Air Forces

I suggest, in Annex III, a minor reorganisation of our air forces. I believe that air power, because of the speed and range of modern aircraft, must be held together and commanded at the highest level in any Theatre of Operations; which is why I suggest that the Apaches are held centrally and not in 16 Air Assault Brigade.

However I also see the advantages of aircraft that are integral to RN vessels and Army combat formations being manned by personnel from the RN and the Army. JHC has paved the way with this and I have followed this design where close air support for naval and land forces is concerned.

As the RAF shrinks the number of squadrons gets smaller. At the same time wing commanders command flying squadrons and squadron leaders command flights. If each flight becomes a squadron and each squadron becomes a wing then the RAF would have twice the number of its historic flying squadrons in its Order of Battle and the rank titles would mean what they say.

The squadrons would be much smaller than USAF squadrons but this should not matter as I am sure that allied air commanders are more interested in (a) how many aircraft they have; (b) their capabilities; and (c) how many sorties they can generate, rather than the size of the squadrons that they belong to.

Aircraft are extraordinarily expensive to purchase, maintain and operate and there is no point in a ‘fantasy fleet’ exercise. But the lack of maritime patrol aircraft concerns me.

I consider that using Atlas (low-level anti-submarine and rescue operations) and Voyager (high-level maritime ISTAR) in the MPA role would make more sense, providing that they can be equipped to carry out the role, than using them all in the strategic transport role, especially now that the Afghan campaign is coming to an end.

Also using Atlas to air drop troops and supplies over enemy territory is risking a very expensive bit of kit in a role far more suitable for the Hercules, and so some C130Js should be retained.

I would also hang on to the Lynx Mk9 for as long as possible; the Army needs more tactical air mobility than Wildcat can provide. In both cases this depends on the money being available.

Rank structure

The present rank structure was designed when the nobility and the gentry provided the officers and commoners provided the other ranks. This is why a wet behind the ears 2Lt is, in theory, senior to a very experienced WO1.

Times have changed and the rank structure should also be changed in all three services. WO1s should equate to Capts; WO2s to Lts; and SSgts to 2Lts. The WOs and SSgts would, I am sure, prefer to remain in the WO and Sgts’ Mess, rather than move to the Officers’ Mess.

There is no good reason why a tried and tested RSM or CSM should have to salute a 2Lt and call him ‘Sir’. The latter might well become a great asset to the Army but when he starts his career he has potential, rather than actual, value; he is certainly not as valuable as the RSM or the CSMs.

Aviators

The Navy consists of sailors; the Army has soldiers but the RAF has airmen and airwomen, which is a bit of a mouthful. Why not call the latter – aviators? Then we could talk of sailors, soldiers and aviators.

The original usage of aviator was for pilots only but there is no reason why we cannot use it for everyone in the RAF. Of course we could simply talk of Andrews, Ruperts & Kevins but that would only apply to the officers.

Conclusion

None of the above is going to happen; even if anyone of any importance in government sees the paper and agrees with it, or some of it.

The three services will not wish to give up their independence (and the three 4 star positions); the Army will not wish to change their plans and the Treasury will want major cost cutting plans, not cosmetic changes.

Unless the Russians get really bolshie and frighten our politicians SDSR 2015 and SDSR 2020 will be seen by whichever of them are in power in those years as opportunities for plunder; not for improving our defences.

However I have enjoyed the exercise, which will have to do for me. I hope that it has been of interest to TD readers.

COMMANDERS, STAFFS, FIGHTING & SUPPORT FORMATIONS
**** HM ARMED FORCES MOD London – Chief of the Defence Staff
  *** HQ ROYAL NAVY Portsmouth – Chief of the Naval Staff & 1st Sea Lord (Policy & People)
  *** HQ BRITISH ARMY Andover – Chief of the General Staff (Policy); Adjutant-General (People)
  *** HQ ROYAL AIR FORCE High Wycombe – Chief of the Air Staff (Policy & People)
  The CDS is the principal advisor on defence to the Secretary of State for Defence and commands all defence personnel. The Chiefs of the Service Staffs (CNS, CGS and CAS) are heads of their services but do NOT command all members of their service. Their role is to advise the SofS, the CDS and Ministers about matters relating to their service and to fight their service’s corner where budgets, etc are concerned. They are staff officers, not commanders, whose tasks are to look at ‘Ways and Means’ and to look to the future of their services. Their aim is to get the best people and equipment in the right numbers to meet the needs of their service. The Army – being larger where personnel are concerned than the two other services put together – has two three star officers, rather than just one.
**** UNITED KINGDOM DEFENCE STAFF MOD London – Vice-Chief of the Defence Staff
  *** DEFENCE POLICY & PLANNING STAFF MOD London – Deputy Chief of the Defence Staff
  *** DEFENCE PERSONNEL STAFF MOD London – Chief of Defence Personnel
  *** DEFENCE EQUIPMENT STAFF MOD London – Chief of Defence Equipment
  *** DEFENCE HEALTH SERVICES MOD London – Chief of Defence Health & Surgeon-General
  *** DEFENCE INFORMATION SYSTEMS MOD London – Chief of Defence Information Systems
  Defence staff officers look at long-term defence policy from a tri-service viewpoint, rather than from just their own service’s viewpoint. Defence Staff officers also serve in the UK Defence Alliances Staff, the UK Defence Forces HQ and the UK Joint Forces HQs.
**** UNITED KINGDOM DEFENCE ALLIANCES STAFF MOD London & SHAPE – Chief of the Defence Alliances Staff
  *** DEFENCE ALLIANCES POLICY STAFF MOD London & UKDEL NATO – Deputy Chief of the Defence Alliances Staff
  *** DEFENCE INTELLIGENCE MOD London – Chief of Defence Intelligence
  *** THE UK DEFENCE ACADEMY MOD London – Vice-Chancellor
  The FCO is responsible for forming and maintaining alliances with other countries. The MOD is responsible for making them work. Defence Alliances Staff are in the FCO, the MOD, SHAPE, UKDEL NATO, BDLS Washington, Embassies and High Commissions.  Now that the threat of invasion from the East has lessened, the load on HQNATO & SHAPE must be lighter than during the Cold War and so DSACEUR is also CDAS and PERMILREP NATO is also DCDAS. Constant monitoring of the military intentions and capabilities of allies, potential enemies and neutral countries is vital. The Defence Academy allows allied personnel to study and discuss issues together.

Notes:
Each Army brigade has a unique number. The Army is too small to have brigades using the same number. It is also too small to maintain historic brigade numbers, such 51 (Highland) Brigade. It is best to start again and number from the top.
RAF groups are commanded by group captains and consist of a number of wings commanded by wing commanders. A group commander can also be the station commander. It is strange that a fast moving flexible force with global reach ties its aircraft to static air stations. The aircraft need a base, as do the air crew, but they ought to be able to deploy forward as fighting formations.
Tactical Strike Wings: Hawks are used for low-level close air support for UK Land Forces. Typhoons & Lightnings are far too valuable to be risked. The Hawks and their pilots are also used for fast-jet flying training in 4 Flying Training School.

COMBAT DIVISION HQs are deployable. If a fighting brigade is deployed to work alongside allied formations then a 2 Star divisional HQ should be deployed to work alongside the host nation headquarters and other allied headquarters.
BRIGADES have unique numbers. The Army is too small to have brigades using the same number. It is also too small to maintain historic brigade numbers, such 51 (Highland) Brigade. It is best to start again and number from the top.
1 PARA is a specialist major combat unit providing support to Army Special Forces and to 6 Airborne Brigade HQ.
HQ & ISTAR Units: 6 x Cavalry Regts & 1 PARA follow RM 30 Cdo Information Exploitation Group concept.

Command Battle Group formed by:

Cav Regt / Para Bn HQ Sqn/Coy; plus Cav Recce Sqns / Para Recce Coy; plus

Bde Command Mobility & Protection Cavalry Sqn/Para Cmd HQ M&P Coy; plus Bde HQ & Signals Sqn, R Sigs; plus

UAS Bty, RA; plus Int Coy, Int Corps; plus CSS yeomanry sqns from framework Regt/Bn and from a combat support regt.

SPECIAL FORCES units (22 SAS; SBS RM & SRR) operate and exercise together under the command of HQ UKDF but come under their brigade HQs for administration, etc. They are the tip of the spear. Their brigades are the blade of the spear and provide operational support and reinforcements to their special forces units.
ARMOURED FORCES deployed for an enduring operation can form two Task Forces of ;

1 x Armoured Infantry Battalion; plus

1 x Armoured Combat Group of 30 x Challenger (HQ has 2 x tanks and the two squadrons have 14 x tanks each) from the Armoured Regiment; plus

1 x Armoured Cavalry Sqn; plus

Combat Support / Combat Services Support units.

Each Task Force serves in Theatre for 6 months. Task Force HQ is from deployed Brigade HQ.

1 & 2 SAXON – New titles for 1 & 2 PWRR to bring the modern regiment’s title into line with the other regiments, such as 1 MERCIAN, 1 ANGLIAN, etc. The modern regiment recruits in the areas occupied by the Middle Saxons (Middlesex), the South Saxons (Sussex) and the West Saxons (Hampshire, which was part of Wessex).

NOTES

RAF groups are commanded by group captains and consist of a number of wings commanded by wing commanders. A group commander can also be the station commander. Each wing consists of two flying squadrons (each bearing a traditional squadron number), one command squadron and one support squadron. Each squadron is commanded by a squadron leader, though additional squadron leaders can lead in specific aspects of the squadron’s tasks.

FAA groups are commanded by captains RN; wings by commanders RN and squadrons by lieutenant-commanders RN.   AAC groups are commanded by colonels; regiments by lieutenant-colonels and squadrons by majors.

Fighter Command: The principal objective of the RAF must be to maintain air supremacy over the territory of the United Kingdom and its maritime approaches. Even though the risk of air attack on our cities is very low at present the impact of conventional air strikes would be immense. Also the USA has set the precedent of RPAS strikes against their enemies in other people’s countries and we need to be able to counter similar strikes on our territory from other actual or potential naval & air powers.

Maritime Patrol Wing: 204 Squadron uses 3 x Voyager for high level maritime patrol and 205 Squadron uses 4 x Atlas for low level anti-submarine warfare. The end of the Afghanistan campaign should cut the numbers of aircraft needed for strategic airlift. Using existing aircraft avoids adding yet another type of aircraft to the RAF fleet. Seven aircraft are not sufficient to maintain constant patrols over the North Atlantic and North Sea but they are better than nothing at all.

Tactical Strike Wings: Hawks are used for low-level close air support for UK Land Forces. Typhoons & Lightnings are far too valuable to be risked over the front-line; they should stand-off and fire air to surface missiles at ground targets. The Hawks and their pilots are also used for fast-jet flying training in 4 Flying Training School.

 

Annexe IV (Major Combat Units of the British Army and Royal Marines)

THE BRITISH ARMY & THE ROYAL MARINES
1: Battlegroups are the basic fighting formations of the British Army and are based on the Major Combat Units (MCU) listed below plus Combat Support batteries and squadrons. All officers and soldiers in an MCU, other than those attached, wear the MCU’s cap badge, etc.  Basic Combat Units (BCU) are the Infantry Companies and Cavalry Squadrons that do the fighting and are the component parts of the MCUs. Each BCU is an independent unit with its own unique title and can operate under any BG HQ.
2: Reserve Yeomanry Regts, Artillery Regts (not HAC) and Infantry Bns are disbanded and merged with Regular Regts & Bns so that the Reserve Squadrons, Batteries and Companies are fully integrated in the Regts and Bns with their Regular counterparts.
3: Command Mobility & Protection Squadrons provide armoured mobility and protection to Bde HQ staff and attached troops.
4: AnMCU is supported by a Combat Services Support Yeomanry Squadron with: HQ Tp; Personnel Support Tp; Medical Support Tp; Logistic Support Tp; & Equipment Support Tp. Sqns are commanded by a major from the MCU. Tps are commanded by captains from the CSS corps. Sqns are staffed by officers and soldiers from the MCU and the CSS corps. Sqn establishments will change according to role & location of MCU.
