The Directorate of Land Concepts and Design was tasked by the Chief of Staff Land Strategy to investigate the capability of the Army’s vehicle fleet to support the requirements of potential future expeditionary operations and associated road-to-high-readiness training. In support of this initiative, staff of the Land Capability Development Operational Research Team developed a vehicle allocation tool coded in Visual Basic for Applications and integrated with Microsoft Excel. The Army’s vehicle fleet was modelled in this tool using vehicle fleet data provided by the Directorate of Land Force Development. Some assumptions were necessary regarding the requirements of future operations and future vehicle fleets which, as of yet, have not been acquired. Under this set of assumptions, the tool identifies capability deficiencies within the Army’s vehicle fleet. Most notably, the current Army plan falls short of meeting the potential requirements modelled in this analysis by approximately twenty-eight Light Armoured Vehicle (LAV) III equipped with the LAV Reconnaissance and Surveillance Suite (LRSS) and ten General Utility (GU) variant Tactical Armoured Patrol Vehicles (TAPV).
