The U.S. Army plans to modernize its force structure to shift from counterterrorism and counterinsurgency to a focus on confronting China and Russia. A new pilot program aims to fill the current gaps in cavalry design.
- MG John Richardson, commanding general in the First Cavalry Division in the Army, said the Army will restructure its divisions for large-scale combat operations to prepare against near-peer competitors.
- Richardson said preparation for the fight of the future will be somewhat similar to the Cold War era but will take into consideration multi-domain operations and changes in technology.
- He said the changes are mainly about organization and will focus on consolidating capabilities at the division level.
