The Ministry of Defence has rigorous processes to assure, test and develop the capabilities and force structure that we have to make sure that they are robust against current and future threats. But we are not complacent, the threat picture is evolving quickly. Therefore, we are continuing with these processes to make sure our plans are delivering the right capability to keep the country safe now and in decades to come.
