Eurosatory conference: "Strategic Landpower for the 21st Century" Conference-debate

Landpower has long been dissociated from "strategic forces", as these generally refer to long-range and/or high-yield strike capabilities.However, the recent military commitments contest this notion and highlight the current and future strategic value of landpower.

 

Although the first and foremost domain in the history of warfare, Landpower has long been dissociated from “strategic forces”, as these generally refer to long-range and/or high-yield strike capabilities. This notion however, is now being challenged in the light of recent military engagements and the future operational environment. From the growing contest in air, sea and cyber commons to the renewed need for land-based reassurance and deterrence-related missions, not forgetting the persistent problem of stabilization and unconventional warfare, as well as the integrating challenge of multi-domain operations, time has come, to reassert the strategic value of land forces.
