A new reform is taking place in the Russian Airborne Forces. Air assault and paratrooper units have to meet the requirements of modern armed conflicts to the maximum. The Airborne Forces are creating units of a new type, commando detachments and companies, drone and electronic warfare units. Paratroopers will soon enjoy fire support of their own artillery brigade and a helicopter brigade, the Independent Military Review writes.

The UK Defence Security and Industry Strategy (DSIS) builds on the outcomes of the Integrated Review and the Defence Command Paper. DSIS provides the framework to work with industry, drive innovation and improve productivity to ensure the UK continues to have a world-class defence industry to underpin national security and drive prosperity and levelling up across the UK.

The U.S. Army is currently conducting a gap analysis as part of its new Arctic strategy to identify if any new equipment or training sites will be needed or expanded to prepare Soldiers for upcoming missions in extreme cold weather. Sean Kimmons, Army News Service, reports.

On March 15, Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SPRI) issued a new report on global arms transfers. It shows that international transfers of major arms stayed at the same level between 2011–15 and 2016–20. Substantial increases in transfers by three of the top five arms exporters—the USA, France and Germany—were largely offset by declining Russian and Chinese arms exports. Middle Eastern arms imports grew by 25 percent in the period, driven chiefly by Saudi Arabia (+61 percent), Egypt (+136 percent) and Qatar (+361 percent).

When Chinese military leaders visited a U.S. military post in 2012, Maj. Gen. Ross Coffman recalled that they were shocked to see what the Army could do. “I saw it in their eyes,” said Coffman, now the director of the Next Generation Combat Vehicle Cross-Functional Team. “They didn’t believe our capability. I think deep down that put a fear in them that they had to modernize.” Sean Kimmons, Army News Service, reports.

The military activities are changing due to high-tech arms and hardware in the leading world armies. They change the character, structure and contents of the armed struggle. The main vectors of the changes include information technologies and asymmetric actions of the opposing parties. Reconnaissance is a major type of combat provision and has reached a development threshold, Colonel PhD Military Science Ye. Bezsudnov and Lieutenant-Colonel R. Gafarov write in the Voennaya Mysl (Military Thought) journal.

It is to be noted that reconnaissance activities, as a raid, search and ambush in the classical format are difficult to implement in modern conditions of non-linear combat actions with asymmetric and hybrid features. Experience shows that the methods are mostly used by commandos staging a special operation in a deep rear, e.g. a raid, together with the weapons of combat platforms that are different in characteristics and engagement spheres. A raid, search and ambush acquire clear combat features by the structure and contents when reconnaissance data becomes a secondary task.

Despite the impact of COVID-19 over the past year, many Chinese military analysts and observers believe that the country's defense budget for 2021 will continue to increase, likely at a higher growth rate than 2020, and they name China's positive economic growth, the tough military threats China is facing and China's own rightful needs to develop national defense capacity as the main reasons, Global Times reports.

In a major lack of time and materials for precision munitions, rational combination of experimental and theoretical methods for reliable forecast of characteristics becomes vital. It is specifically important at the stage of optimization of experimental testing and calculated estimates of munition parameters and fuzes. It is also necessary to rationally unify the results of experiments at the stage of design of similar-caliber munitions for various weapons.

Major changes are visible in munitions design. In the first two decades of the 21st century, they were not a priority of the arms program and received little finances. However, combat actions in Syria clearly demonstrated the acute necessity to upgrade and design new-generation munitions for various weapons. A quick fulfilment of the task is impeded by deteriorating skills of designers and technologists.
