Government Matters’ Mimi Geerges interviewed Gen. James McConville, chief of staff of the United States Army, about major priorities, including modernization.

  • “The Army is undergoing what I’d argue is the biggest transformation in 40 years,” said McConville, adding, “I suggest that every 40 years the Army has to transform and modernize.”
  • This modernization involves new weapons systems, doctrine, organizations, training and technology as well as Multi-Domain Task Forces and Security Force Assistance Brigades, he said.
  • The top modernization priority is long-range precision fires, starting with hypersonic missile capabilities, which the Army plans to have available to soldiers next year, said McConville. These will allow for deterrence through very high speeds and extensive ranges.
